Maison Ikkoku @ Kandahar Street

Recess week spells TIME TO PARTY. We had to start the week off right by going out to try some new places! Off we went to get some gooood coffee. And the coffee here definitely did not disappoint!

2 x lattes. Coffee was aromatic, left a pleasant aftertaste, milk was smooth and creamy. Enjoyable coffees! This was very easy to finish.

If you go during lunch time, there’s a set which lets you order any drink $5 or less together with the sandwiches/ salad/ pastas! GO FOR IT.

We had sandwiches! They range from $14 to $17. I have the Reuben Sandwich ($14), which was pastrami, sauerkraut and pickles! Chose wholemeal bread which was surprisingly soft on the inside and very tasty. Overall a good sandwich though I felt like they could have afforded to add more filling!

On the side, they serve a mesclun salad with almonds and lemon vinaigrette dressing. Which was tasty, refreshing and made me wish that they had accidentally sprinkled more almonds on my salad.

Guess what we had for dessert?

Carrot Cake ($7.50). Friends were saying that they outsource their bakes, and this is made by one of the owner’s friends. As you can see, the cake is tall, it is packed with carrots and walnuts, and it is smothered in a delicious cream cheese frosting. Sink your fork from the top, make sure you get a bit of all the layers, and you will have tasted some very good carrot cake. Loved how the cream cheese frosting was not overwhelmingly sweet, and tasted real strongly of cream cheese.

They had quite a lot of other cakes on offer and I’ll be back to have more!

This place is good for its coffee, the baristas very obviously know what they’re doing and have been trained by a Japanese barista, so feel free to try out their different pours. They’ve a range of coffee products as well, so you can venture here from Haji Lane/ Bugis Junction if you’re in the mood for good coffee!
