Some friends would have already know that I've been wanting to start this blog for quite some time. I love to check out new places for food and taking food photos, so blogging about it seems to be the next most natural thing to do. I ended up eating and eating and eating and never got around to writing lol. However, I've been very zealous in taking food photos and uploading them up to my facebook page and instagram account. Now, it's time to tell the story behind my photos.
During lunch just recently, my colleague and I decided to visit this newly-opened cafe called Epilogue, located next to Prologue bookstore at Orchard Central. This is a much smaller branch compared to the one at Ion Orchard and was relatively quiet. It was exactly what we needed! ~ A quiet place to get some calm away from the stressful office.
It did not take us too long to decide what we want from their menu consisting mainly of soups, sandwiches and pastas. We get to pick a free book too as we've spent more than S$16 in a single receipt.
This is what I've selected. I admit I'm a food addict, are you?
My order of Chicken Rendang Sandwich finally came after a long wait. Usually I'm not a sandwich person, but the unique fusion combination of chicken rendang and focaccia attracted me to make this choice.. and it turns out to be a most delightful one!
The chicken was very well marinated and stewed until so so so tender. Every bite was extremely flavorful, juicy and goes very well with the toasted focaccia. However, if this can be a bit more spicier, it would have been perfect. The portion of chicken can be more generous too, considering the size of the focaccia... But still, this is a must-try!
My colleague who had the same sandwich also raved about it.
Rounding off the meal is a cup of refreshing Café Mocha Mint to keep me awake for the rest of the afternoon. I would have gotten a slice of cake from their gourmet cake selection to go with my mocha if I can afford more time to leisurely enjoy it.
We waited for a long time for our food and had to remind the service staff a few times to serve it faster as we had only an hour for lunch. But I guess every new place would have their teething issues. The service staff was obviously shorthanded but still smiling under the pressure to accommodate to our request. Well, good service kinda makes up for it then. This is a place I don't mind visiting again for some serenity in bustling Orchard Road.
