(Closed) First 25 Café – Chillax in the CBD
First 25 Café boosts a casual dining environment with an elegant touch and all white interior in the vicinity of Tanjong Pagar. It is just a stone’s throw away from the Pinnacle @ Duxton, as well as, Tanjong Pagar MRT station. The Victorian mirror you would notice on the left side of the café upon entering, contributes to the café’s elegance.
As you walk into the café, the bright interior welcomes you all the way to your seat. With acoustic music playing in the background, it’s a great place to relax and unwind after a hard day’s work. Although their Ala Carte Menu was pretty focused, be blown away by their Asian Fusion dishes. It’s a fusion between Korean/Japanese and Italian.
We started off with Ice Salted Caramel Coffee ($6.90) and Ice Orange Chocolate ($7.50). They have quite a reasonable number of coffee, tea and other beverages. The reason as to why First 25 Café stands out is due to the fact that their coffee and chocolate drinks are specially flavoured. While the former was soothingly sweet and satisfying, the latter was refreshingly chocolatey!
We shared a plate of Kimchi Cheese Fries ($10). On our first bite, we didn’t find it spicy but subsequently, the kimchi certainly packed a good punch! What a successful idea of mixing kimchi with fries and sinfully topped with truckloads of cheese!
When our mains arrived, we were awed by the onsen egg atop our Smoked Uni Carbonara ($26). This dish also consists of sage, slipper lobster and sea urchin. Simply fantastic! We love how creamy the sauce was.
Their signature First 25 Porcini Burger ($21) came with a generous side of fries in white truffle pumpkin mayonnaise. The meat patty was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Coupled with their home-made secret recipe sauce, we don’t mind returning for a second serving however sinful it is!
A pity we had dinner ‘cause having looked through their lunch menu, we felt very tempted. The good news is that their set lunch menu changes every two weeks! Good food puts everyone in a good mood right? If we were working in the stressful CBD or had a bad morning, heading here for lunch would instantly lift up our moods.
