Miss Clarity Cafe
Chicken Gordon Bleu
Have a look at that photo above.
What do you think it is?
Don't you think it looks vaguely interesting and delicious at the same time:
that's a closer shot. check out the ham and cheese. can you smell the aroma permeating through your computer screen?
If you thought that was good, try imagining what this would taste like:
have you guessed?
Can you feel it in your mouth? Yes? No? Want more? Sure....
Chicken baked rice
Now... you are so gonna hate me for doing this aren't you?
But please, have patience and enjoy the food porn while you can...
All right all right, I had better stop being so evasive about these gorgeous dishes. Sorry, but I was simply in a playful mood. haha...
Anyway, yes, I discovered this gem of a cafe recently through a friend's recommendation.
Miss Clarity Cafe is THE latest hot spot in town where you can dine at prices so reasonable your jaws might drop. Plus, they have free wi-fi and they don't mind if you chill out and study there with your laptops.
They serve a range of western and asian cuisine. Opened in June this year, Miss Clarity Cafe is run by a family who's quite adept in the F&B business. The chef himself used to work at Raffles Grill. Impressive eh? The amazing thing is that they don't even have service charge. But trust me, you'd def. wanna leave them a tip because they have such a personable way of serving.
The time I was there, I ended up chatting with Nora, the lady boss and her chef son and even her waiters - who were actually her nephews.
Why name it Miss Clarity you ask? Well that's the name of one of Nora's niece.
Okay I think I've digressed enough. Back to the food!
Yes yes, that which you saw at the top of the blog, that's Chicken Gordon Bleu, breaded chicken stuffed with ham and cheese. Can you guess how much it costs?
You wouldn't believe it if i told you.
It set me back only by a mere $5.50. Without svc charge too mind you! I mean, given the neat presentation and quality of the food, you would have expected to pay at least about $12 won't you?
But you see, that's the wondrous thing about this cafe. They don't aim to suck your pockets dry. All they want to give you is a satisfying meal which actually tastes and looks good.
If you do decide to drop by, don't leave without trying their Chicken Ballotine. It's chicken stuffed with mushrooms. It tastes great. Oh, and yes, their baked rice. You saw the amount of chicken in their baked rice didn't you? Yes, that wasn't a photo trick - there really was that much of chicken in that dish. It was yummy!
As for dessert, don't fret, they have some amazing stuff that will leave you speechless:
The chocolate fondue costs only $10. and their bread pudding:
It costs only $2.80. I didn't try the pudding but my friends who did, well they loved it so much that they keep going back for more!
I do think that this cafe wouldn't be seeing the last of me. I know that for a fact!
