Hei Kim Cafe

Hei Kim Cafe was introduced to me when I won a $50 Dining voucher through XINDOTS weekly food photo contest. Hei Kim is located just a few minutes away from Kembangan MRT station. It is a lifestyle retail cum minimalist cafe.

There's nothing fanciful about the decorations in the cafe. The place looks humble and old school to me with its Marble-top looking table and wooden chairs.

Scrambled egg on toast was nicely done up. One can opt to add Pesto aka Green Eggs on the toast at additional cost.

Scrambled Egg on Toast - $7
Ordering a cup of mocha is plain boring to us, thus we had it topped up with Iced Coffee at an additional $2. Mocha was strong and rich in taste but do not worry, as the sweetness is just alright without tasting bitterness.

 Mocha with Coffee Ice - $7
We were looking for some hot beverages to pair up with our food. Our tea by the pot using Chrysanthemum & Goji was not a bad idea.

Tea by the pot - $5
The crispy duck thigh confit in duck fat was served on aligot with some rocket greens. The sauce tasted like pineapple puree. Although the dish was full of aroma when served, it was not up to my expectation as the confit was too dry on both its skin and the meat.

Duck Confit - $20
 For those who are looking for some sour goodness, the Lemon Curd will be recommended.

Lemon Curd - $5
Each cake is baked inhouse. If you look at the cakes displayed through their glass chiller, you might be fighting over some emotional struggles on which one to order. We had the cake of the day, its rich in taste and big in size. It tasted not too bad afterall.

Cake of the Day - $9
Last but not least, here's our photo with most of our orders for the tea break.

Our Food
The ambiance of Hei Kim Cafe was perfect for someone who wants to pass their time by relaxing under the air-conditioned environment over some cafe food.  The place was so cozy and I can find myself slowing down physically without much stress. It seems an ideal place to enjoy some desserts and do some light reading. What's more, there are neither service charge nor GST required and these are the plus points for diners.
