Mon Bijou is founded at Claymore Connect, the shopping mall of Orchard Hotel. Entered the building by the entrance facing Claymore Road. Though the unit is located at the first floor, when entered via the Claymore Road entrance, take an escalator to the next floor.
It has a causal but comfy enough seating with soothing colours to my eyes.
Orders are to be placed at the cashier and food will be served.
One page on food, the other for beverages. I didn’t take notice of the beverage page, not knowing what other drinks than coffee do they serve. But I suppose wine is served at the cafe as I spotted a panel of bottled wine.
Ally Day Breakfast, with a good selection of Salad, a soup of the day, some light bites, pasta and burgers were all on the menu. It is kid friendly too as it provide a specific kids menu too.
When I stood at the cashier, on my right was a glass worth of cakes and pastries “waving” to me. I know I must try at least one of them. Since this was the case, I went for a Light Bites, the Sliders Trio.
When served, I didn’t felt that this was light at all. It was as good as a Main. Now, I begin to wonder what’s the portion of the Mains look like.
The Sliders Trio was a combo Mon Bijou Crabby Patty, Ngoh Hiang and Classic Beef Burger served with chilli dusting Fries. Among the three patty, I like the beef best, followed by the Ngoh Hiang. It would be perfect if the saltiness of the 3 were homogeneous. Personally, I find the Crabby Patty a little too salty while the remaining 2 were fine.
Lemon Yuzu Tart
I tried the Lemon Yuzu Tart. As expected, it was typical citrus tart.
A pity that I couldn’t savour the Yuzu flavour.
The coffee was full body with low acidity.
Despite it was an espresso based coffee, it was with a taste note similar to instant coffee.
Food was pretty innovative, at least for the Sliders Trio. I like the idea of having the ngoh hiang on burgers. Coffee and the pastry could be improved.
Before leaving the cafe, I requested to sample the Coconut gelato and was recommended the Yuzu. Both were equally fabulous. I am going back to enjoy the gelato and cakes soon. And the mains as well.
