Food Review - On The Table

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

On The Table Cafe Exterior

Awhile back, I had one of my BEST food orgasm at Lola's cafe, in which in my opinion, serves one of the best poached eggs. When I heard that the couple owners opened another outlet in Pasir Panjang, the Evilbean decided to pop by and wondered if he is gonna get his orgasm again. 

Given the name of their first cafe, all of us might expect them to name their second cafe something similar. If you do not know, Lola (according to urban dictionary), is a girl that fascinates guys with her stunning looks and great personality. So, a name like Aphrodite or Athena's Cafe might be what we are expecting. 

But nope. 

Their second cafe name is called "On The Table".... :

"Hey honey, I am going to register our new cafe's name. Have you thought of what to call it already?"

"Oh, the name is on the table!"

"Ermmm 'on the table'??"

"Yes, on the table!"
" it. See ya Honey!"

I strongly suspect this is the case because if you look at the name of the receipt, the printed name is NOT on the table. Yes, do check out your receipt when you dine in On The Table and see what is the actual name that is printed.

SO, Lola's Cafe owners, if you are reading this, TELL ME WAI? What happened to the name?!

Iced Latte ($5.50)

Iced Latte

I liked the way they served it to us, makes for a very nice instagram-worthy photo with the black and white combination. Probably a little too much milk, which diluted the taste of the coffee. However, it came in a very big cup, which #auntiebean loves. Despite it being diluted, it still taste better than Starbucks' so this is still worth to order.

Salmon and Mushroom Truffle Cream Linguine ($16)

Salmon and Mushroom Truffle Cream Linguine

This truffled infused cream linguine is served with smoked salmon, swiss mushroom and parmesan cheese. The truffle cream paired really well with the linguine. The smell of truffle and the creamy texture makes the otherwise bland linguine taste delicious! There are not many cafes that serves truffle linguine so it is pretty cool that On The Table's menu serves this. However, the linguine was not done al-dente as they were pretty soft. I prefer my pastas to be firm. Also, the smoked salmon was cooked so it became a little dry to eat. It would have been better if the salmon was served raw so that it retains its melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Ultimate Croissant ($13)

OKAY, I HAD MY ORGASMS AGAIN WITH THIS ULTIMATE CROISSANT. This #5evilbeans orgasm-inducing buttered croissant is served with honey glazed bacon, ham, mayo, honey, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and salad on the side. Why does this deserve #5evilbeans?

Firstly, the croissant is done PERFECTLY. The buttered insides are wonderfully soft and fluffy, while the outside is toasted to perfect crispness. 

The scrambled eggs are just eggs produced in heaven. They are SOOO SOFT AND RUNNY and flavourfully dusted with chilli powder. I can totally eat this scrambled eggs for breakfast everyday and not get sick of it. And then the honey glazed bacon is simply sex. 

If you manage to eat them all at once, you get a wonderful chorus of the crisp, toasted croissant, melting together with the smooth, runny scrambled eggs, with backup dancers honey glazed bacon and ham spreading their sweet honey at the tip of your tongue. YOU GOTTA TRY THIS HEAVEN-FOOD.

Raspberry Lemon Curd ($5)

Raspberry Lemon Curd

This caught my eye when I was ordering at the counter. The cake was moist and the lemon was really sour, but it isn't something that you will gobble up within 5 minutes. However, if you have a cup of coffee and are intending to stay for at least 2-3 hours, this raspberry lemon curd will keep you company bite by bite.

Waffle with Baileys and Brownie Ice-Cream ($8)

Waffle with Baileys and Brownie Ice-Cream

Very pretty plating for the waffles I must say! The waffles was quite disappointing though. The batter that was used for the waffle was not fragrant enough, and it was not baked in the waffle-maker long enough to have the crispy edges which I love. So if you pair it with the ice-cream and the sauces, there is no texture because the waffle is too soft, which makes you feel like you are sending a spoonful of liquid into your mouth.

The ice-cream is good though! It doesn't melt too fast and it is not too sweet. From the instagram hashtags, the earl grey and salted caramel ice-cream seem to be quite popular. The Evilbean will definitely be back for more of their food (there is duck confit!!) and their specialty coffee and ice-creams. 


Cafe Rating (out of 5 Evilbeans):


Evilbean's last words/recommendation:
- Friendly service, dazzling lightbulbs and awesome mains with no GST and Service Charge #auntiebean. Totally a perfect place to laze your afternoons away. The ice-creams are good, but skip the other desserts for now.
- MUST-ORDER: Ultimate Croissant
