SuperMilk – Bubble Tea’s Out, Bubble Waffle’s in!
Being a commercial area with many factories and offices in Tai Seng, I’m glad there’s a row of cafés to help lighten the serious work environment and offer a refuge to de-stress during lunch and dinner hours. With cafés such as 23 Jumpin, The Oven, The Boneless Kitchen etc, the working crowd would not lack variety of food items to choose from. SuperMilk has opened its doors, with their Artisan ice cream and a menu that differs from the other cafés. It’s easy to spot this brightly illuminated café due to its distinct contrast with other cafés that has a dark and tinted exterior along this stretch. They have a decent sized interior but might not be able to accommodate the crazy office lunch crowd on a weekday.
The Artisan ice cream comes in single ($3.90), double ($7.60) and triple ($11) scoops, with flavours such as Raisin Fantasy, Lime Sorbet, Japanese Matcha, Hazelnut and their signature Honey Lavender. Just approach the friendly staff stationed behind their ice cream displays for sampling before making your choice. My favourite was their Honey Lavender ice cream – lavender-infused milk with honey. Not sure if you’ll find it weird, but I like the floral flavour, which enhanced the sweetness of the honey. With my eyes closed, I could imagine myself standing in the middle of a large lavender field, with the gentle wind breezing across my skin. Okay, that’s too exaggerated, haha! Another hot pick has to be the Hazelnut flavour that’s distinctively crunchy, while still retaining its milky texture and not overly sweet.
The highlight of our meal was their unique bubble waffles ($10.90) – crisp on the outside yet soft and fluffy on the inside. It smells heavenly and we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into the waffles, topped with scoops of deliciously sweet ice cream.
Moving on to the mains, we had Tunisian Eggs ($15.90) and Deep Ocean Marinara ($17.90). Their signature Tunisian Eggs is slowed-cooked for 24 hours using spicy tomato herb sauce and consisted of minced beef, chicken and baked eggs, served with a side of baguettes. We feel that this dish was just the right amount of robustness in taste but texture wise, a little too watery. Nothing can go wrong when eggs are involved but instead of using processed hot-dog from NTUC, perhaps Merguez sausages would be a better choice. As for their Deep Ocean Marinara, which boasts tiger prawns and fish chunks with linguine, tossed in the chef’s special red sauce, we find it a tad disappointing. Pairing with the meals, we had a decent hot chocolate ($5.80) and refreshing Citrus Orange Fruit Juice ($4).
Speaking of convenient café-hopping, this stretch near the Tai Seng MRT might just be the place to go if you’re too lazy to travel, yet want to visit many cafés in one shot.
