Birthday morning…

My girl had a gluten-free baked Japanese cheesecake…

Melissa's Japanese baked cheesecake - birthday 2018

…for her birthday this year – her mum baked one…

…like the one she baked last year (but with brown sugar) so she could enjoy it and of course, the first thing in the morning on her birthday, in keeping with the tradition, we had to have the mee sua (Foochow longevity noodles) in traditional chicken soup…

…but since the noodles, being made from wheat flour, are not gluten-free, only I could have that while she had hers with hung ngang (the big bihun) instead.

Later that morning, we went out and it was way past lunchtime when we stopped by here…

You can place your orders at the counter…

…and pay first before going to take a seat – they will serve your orders to you once they are ready.

You can help yourself to all the water you can drink, free of charge…

Water, all you can drink

…and because I was still full from the mee sua, having had a lot of the noodles and two eggs, I did not want anything to eat.

My girl wanted something light so she just had the mushroom cheese omelette (RM9.50)…

…with her iced spice chai tea latte (RM11.00)…

…that she would always order everytime she drops by here with her friends.

She enjoyed the omelette – 3 eggs went into it, so we were told and a lot of cheese…

…as well. Normally, that would come with a few slices of baguette toast or whatever bread – no, my girl would not be able to eat that as it would not be gluten-free but I saw some guys at another table having their omelette with fries so I quickly asked my girl to request for a switch and in the end, she got the fries instead and yes, they were very nicely done – crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside though I must say they were not very generous with them. LOL!!!

This metal cabinet in the corner caught my attention…

– and it turned out to be some sort of a “secret passage” into their kitchen and bakery…

The mum just had the ice blended banana espresso (13.50)…

…while I had the banana mango milkshake (RM15.50)…

…which I thought was very nice and had a lot of mango in it, not only on top…

This came out of the kitchen…

– the people at the next table were having that and I could detect the delightful smell but no, I was not tempted to order that for myself. It looked like the meat was coated with batter so I guess that would not be gluten-free but we could always go for something else on their menu on our next visit.

Service was great – the people were very pleasant and friendly and conversant in English. We certainly wouldn’t mind dropping by again sometime…and do stick around – I will have another post on this place soon.

Well, the Mooncake Festival or the Zhōngqiū Jié (中秋节) is tomorrow, Monday, the 24th of September. Have you bought any to enjoy yet? Or perhaps you have made your own? I did buy some that day and the morning we were here, my missus bought a few from here…

Mooncakes from Outright Coffee/Bakemore Bakery

…to try. Theirs are cheaper than most and I like the lotus paste and salted yolk as it is not as sweet as all the rest. The Ferrero Rocher cheese is nice too but for me, it is a tad too sweet – not so good for old folks like me. To preserve the culture, if not for any other reason, do hop over and see if there are any left, if you haven’t had any yet.
