Tomorrow would be the first day of fasting month, which means no outside dining during fasting hours. Jennifer, Sister and I were supposed to try out this Thai restaurant called Mayura in town for lunch yesterday but it was the first day of lunar calendar month. So, I have to be vegan for half a day until lunch. Therefore, lunch plan was cancelled and turned into tea plan. LOL!
The cafe was pretty crowded at the time when we arrived some time past 1:30PM. But we managed to get a big table shared with some other patrons as the side tables were kinda stuffy for three.
Without further ado, it’s food pictures time!
Hot Lady Grey | B$4
Butterscotch Latte | B$5.50
I had tried their Cinammon Latte on my previous visit. I quite like their Cinnamon Latte previously but I was being curious on trying out other flavored lattes. To be honest, I did not like this as much as I did with their Cinnamon Latte. This tasted salty, sweet and yet bitter. The first taste I got was salty, followed by sweet and lastly, bitter. In short, Butterscotch Latte is definitely not my cup of coffee. LOL!
Pecan Cheesecake | B$5.50
This was a lot smaller in size than the standard cheesecake wedge slice. However, the cheese texture was extremely creamy and smooth. Best of all, the cheese taste was strong but not in the way that you will get “jelak” if you had too much. If you love both cheese and pecans, do try this. I would highly recommend it albeit the price was steep for a small slice.
Aglio Olio | B$8.90
Spinach & Potato (Large) | B$19
To be honest, the sight of burnt sesame on the crust was a bit of a turn off. Sister mentioned that it seems like Brunei is currently on a trend whereby the cafes are serving thin crusted pizza instead of like the thick ones from Pizza Hut. The pizza base from Verve Caffe is like the Indian bread Naan. Taste wise, this was good. The combination of spinach with potatoes and cheese was simply divine but sinful.
