Lola's Cafe

It has been a few times that we were turned turn by the full house and long wait of Lola's Cafe. We decided to give a try this time round since we were some kind of near to Simon Road.

It was full house and we entered our particulars into the Ipad to get a queue number for the next table. They have both internal as well as Alfresco Seating and there is a preference for you to indicate on the tablet itself. Though it was quite good enough, the service crew who saw us navigating at the devicce was friendly enough to tell us the estimated wait.

Ordering and Payment Counter

Interior
 When I took a look into the menu, there were a number of items that seem so familiar to On The Table that we had visited sometimes back. On a deeper thought, I recalled that Lola and On The Table are from the same team.

Menu
It seems like most people raved about Lola's cafe Brunch menu but just too bad that I'm here for dinner instead.

Ginger Beer - $6.50
Lemonade & Theme - $8
The guy had his indulgence on the Pork Patty, pulled and served with pickled vegetables, toasted burger buns and potato fries. Presentation was more or less the same as On The Table just that it was served in a wooden bowl instead. It was not anything special and did not have any wow factor in order to lead us in making a return visit.

Pulled Pork Burger with Purple Slaw - $16

Toasted with Spread
Spaghetti with pork bacon, white mushroom, truffle oil, parmesan cheese and cream perhaps can do better if the infusion of truffle oil scent got a little bit heavier. Pasta was good but there are still room for improvement.

Bacon & Mushroom Truffle Cream Pasta - $15

Chocolate sweetness level was in favor of us, bitter sweet taste and was not too cloying even in its creamy chocolate. The piece of dark brown dessert was adorned with 9 Toasted Meringue, brightening up the dull colors. Texture was soft on cocoa sponge and not too creamy from the chocolate cream and we get to feel the crunchy thin layer of Hazelnut Feuilletine within the cream. That's the kick!

Lola's Chocolate Cake - $6.50
Trying its dinner menu, we had expected something better than that. Perhaps most media comments were based on their Brunch Set, I guess it will be fair for them until I try out their Brunch Menu.
