After my previous failed holiday trip to Bangkok, I was itching to go for a holiday getaway. I intended to go Kota Kinabalu (KK) on my own but Mom didn’t allow me to as it is not exactly very safe and transportation may be a bit of an issue for me albeit a friend of mine disagreed.
So, I decided to go Singapore instead for a weekend getaway. Not exactly a weekend getaway as I am arriving Singapore on Saturday morning and leaving on Tuesday noon. It is a day longer than my previous two trips to Singapore as I usually arrive on Friday evening and leaving Singapore on Monday morning when both Patrick and Andrea were at work.
Sister decided to join me to Singapore this time after much persuasion from me under the condition that I’ll sponsor her accommodation and in return, she will buy me dinner. LOL! I am still planning our itineraries but nothing is fixed yet as a friend of mine might be going Singapore too for a business trip. It is gonna be a group reunion gathering that comes three years late if he could make it this time round.
Let’s not talk about Singapore for the time being but focus on what I am about to write for today. I will do reviews of cafes and places which I visited in Singapore after I came back from my holiday. So, do stay tune if you are interested!
Yugo Dessert Cafe operates on a self-service concept. Instead of having staff members attending to you after you are seated, you will have to proceed to the Cashier counter to place your orders and pay for them too. You will then be given this thing in the above picture. It will buzz and vibrate when your orders are ready.
Iced Vanilla Latte | B$5.20
Banana Smoothie | B$4.50
San Diann ordered this and sang lots of praises about it. According to him, it was really really good and the taste of bananas was distinctive and original. And the addition of whipping cream made it even more superb. I intended to order this too in the first place but thank goodness that I did not. It looked very sinful to me. LOL!
Cafe Latte | B$4.20
My cup of Cafe Latte. It was okay but nothing to shout about. Texture was smooth and milky. I think the milk had overpowered the taste of coffee. But good thing is that their coffee was served steaming hot. Can you see the steam rising from my cup of Cafe Latte? xD
Tuna Mayo Panini | B$4.50
Love the side salad with raisins and Thousand Island dressing. The Tuna Mayo Panini was good albeit the panini being on the tougher side. The panini came with generous serving of Tuna Mayo fillings and greens like lettuce, sliced cucumbers and tomatoes.
Shibuya Honey Toast | B$4.00
So, this was the highlight of what we ordered at Yugo Dessert Cafe! This is buttered and toasted thick toast, sprinkled with some white sugar along with sides of two scoops of vanilla ice-cream and whipped cream.
The toast was extremely soft while still warm but tends to get a bit tougher when cooled down. Eating the toast alone without the whipped cream and ice-cream was good enough. What more when you ate it with the whipped cream and ice-cream??!!
Verdict: Yugo Dessert Cafe has a cozy ambiance and good lighting for food photography. As the cafe is still new, it can be pretty crowded during weekends from 2PM to 4PM. It was extremely crowded at the time when we arrived but less crowded at the time when we left at around 5PM.
Apart from their signature toasts, Yugo Dessert Cafe do also serve waffles, ice flakes and Taiwanese style desserts! I will definitely return to Yugo Dessert Cafe next time to try out their other menus.
Yugo Dessert Cafe is located next to The Letterbox and the same row as The Library Cafe.
