After our unsuccessful attempt to meet up some time last month, Kaylie and I met up for dinner last Tuesday evening at Little Audrey’s Café with lil’ Keona. I could not think of any place new in town so decided try out Little Audrey’s Café for the second time.
Jennifer and I had been there for coffees shortly after they were opened last month but the pictures ain’t anywhere good so I decided not to do a blog entry of the cafe. But the lighting of Little Audrey’s Café at night was surprisingly so much nicer than during daytime. Even Jennifer agreed too when I showed her the pictures which I took.
Without further ado, let’s get this blog entry rolling …
Chai Tea Latte | B$4.50
Ordered myself a cup of Chai Tea Latte as I did not like the acidic after taste of their Latte. No offence here as it is entirely subjective to personal preference. Coffee addicts may like acidic after taste in coffees but I am just not one of them. Their Chai Tea Latte was not bad but it was rather too sweet for my liking.
Homemade Sweet Potato Fries | B$4.90
Kaylie ordered this for lil’ Keona but could not even finish a fraction of the fries. To be honest, it requires a bit of skill to get the texture right. I had tried two cafes for Sweet Potato Fries and the outcome were the same. It is hard to achieve the crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside kind of texture. And it gets soggy pretty quick too.
Trio Onion Rings | B$6.90
I think what they meant by “trio” is the three different frying batters. These were good but had to be consumed when hot as the batter turned soggy when they turned cold. These onion rings went well with the accompanying dipping sauce. I am not sure what was the dipping sauce but I think it was pretty close to tartar sauce.
Grilled Spring Chicken | B$19.90
with sambal soy sauce, sweet potato mash, coleslaw and grilled pineapple
This was what Kaylie ordered for dinner and we were surprised when we saw the portion. We never expected a whole chicken on the platter. They ran out of pineapples and they replaced it with french fries. The french fries were good and it had the kind of texture which I absolutely love – crunchy on the outside and yet soft on the inside.
The sweet potato mash however was not very nice due to the texture but I think it was a healthier substitute to the usual mashed potato. As the portion of the chicken was so big, Kaylie did not finish the entire thing and had the remaining as takeaway. The grilled chicken was well marinated though.
Nasi Lemak | B$5.90
with our house made sambal, choice of level of spiciness (mild or spicy)
Felt like having spicy food so I went ahead with their spicy house made sambal. It was indeed spicy for me but I loved it. Instead of the usual hard boiled egg, they served with sunny side up. The chicken wings cutlets were nicely done and deep fried to perfection.
Verdict: I liked the ambiance of the cafe. It has a Breakfast at Tiffany’s feel. Food was decent enough in my opinion and I would like to return to try out their pasta menu. It was stated on the menu that pastas are served until 3PM but I saw them serving pastas the other day. Cakes’ selection were the standard and almost similar to what other cafes are serving.
