Fifteen Nine – Say Hi to The New Kid that Replaced Rokeby
Before you mourn the loss of Rokeby Bistro, you’d be excited to hear that it has been rebranded to Fifteen Nine Cafe and Bar. Helmed by the original owners of Rokeby, Fifteen Nine aims to excite your palate with their new menu.
The unusual Mac & Cheese Escargots ($14) caught our eyes on social media. This dish is served in a hot ceramic pot that is served straight out of the oven, so do be careful! The macaroni was light and wasn’t too cheesy for my taste. I do enjoy the soft texture of the escargots, though it isn’t as flavourful as I would have liked. You might like to grab a cup of refreshing Autumn Sweater Black Tea ($4.50) to balance out the rich, cheesy taste. The mild-tasting tea has a tinge of vanilla flavour, which pairs nicely with the Mac & Cheese.
This local-western cafe and bar serves an Indo-Mee Burger ($16), which will appeal to diners with a penchant for the noodles. The chicken patty is fried and coated in crispy traces of Indo-mee. Ouch! If you’re planning to take a bite into all the layers of the burger at one go, think again. The Indo-mee bits will poke, but if you carefully navigate around it you’ll be greeted with the patty which is quite soft. Flavour-wise, the patty could have been a bit better marinated. The fries are sprinkled with a dash of pepper and cinnamon.
As you all know, I can’t leave a cafe without having dessert. Lucky for us, we snagged the last piece of their Molten Lava Cake with a scoop of Chocolate Ice Cream ($9). According to the staff, the in-house pastry chef only creates about 150-200 molten lava cake each month. Remember to drop by in the earlier part of the month if you want to try it! The cake itself is soft and chocolatey, and the oozing lava adds to the richness of the dessert.
A must-try will be the Kaya Butter Coffee ($5.50). It smells and tastes delicious! The concoction has a buttery smooth texture, and a subtle pandan aftertaste.
Come here if you desire a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, or if you need a space for personal endeavours. I’d definitely recommend the Kaya Butter Coffee. The staff also recommends The Riang Cheeseburger ($18) as it is a crowd favourite. If you’re looking to feast on their mains, take note that their kitchen closes from 3pm to 6pm. They do still serve desserts and drinks during that period, though.
