All The Batter – Singapore’s Very First Avocado Cafe
Avocado is all the rage this century. After all, it’s avocaDO not avocaDON’T… With tons of avocado toasts and avocado smoothies gracing our Instagrams these days, it is clear that avocado seems to be a staple in the diet of millennials worldwide. Even we wrote an article about smashed avocado recently (read here).
There’s some food that people either love or hate. And yes, you guessed it! Avocado is a prime example. Those in the first camp appreciate the creamy richness of the fruit, while those in the second school of thought probably cannot fathom why anyone would enjoy this bland and slimy fruit. Well, if you belong to the camp that loves avocado and all things avocado-related, you will be delighted to know that there’s an avocado-themed café, All The Batter.
It takes guts to open a cafe revolving around one single fruit. As such, we decided to pop by All The Batter to check out their interesting concept. Located just a 5-minute walk away from Thomson Plaza, All The Batter is surrounded by residential estates. The nearest MRT Station is Marymount, but it is still quite a distance away. As such, for those making their way here by public transport, you may opt to take a bus instead.
Everyone knows it is hard to resist cakes. We ordered the Avocado Rhapsody Slice ($6.50), which had alternating layers of chocolate cake and avocado buttercream. The chocolate cake was moist and yummy, while the rich avocado cream was slightly buttery. Embedded in the buttery avocado cream are chunks of soft avocado. One thing that I appreciated about the cake was its level of sweetness — it was sufficiently sweet, yet not too cloying.
We also ordered a “recommended milkshake” — the Avocado Nutty Galore ($8.90). I would describe the Avocado Nutty Galore as a healthy-tasting, yet thick milkshake. True to its name, a very strong nutty taste prevailed. The slightly powdery drink lacked sweetness, so the nuttiness was a tad overpowering.
At $2.90, the Fresh Avocado Milk Ball is the cheapest thing on the menu. The fresh avocado milk ball is essentially a cream puff, filled with a generous amount of light and milky avocado cream.
The final item that we tried was the Beech Wood Smoked Salmon Smashed Avocado ($22), which was chock full of alfafa sprouts. The pieces of smoked salmon which sat atop the avocado spread saved the entire dish — it added some much-needed saltiness to the bland avocado toast. Overall, the smashed avo toast was pretty ordinary, and $22 is definitely way too steep a price tag.
In conclusion, if you love anything avocado and green, you will probably like this place. For those who do not have the time to enjoy a leisurely brunch in a cafe, you can also visit All The Batter’s takeaway kiosk at Anchorpoint. Note that this takeaway kiosk sells only avocado drinks and the avocado milk ball.
