#B2-25/26 Cuppage Plaza
Mom and I were wandering along Orchard Road and decided to check out the foodcourt at Cuppage. However, it has since closed down and the whole stretch is filled with fancy restaurants. Not wanting to break the bank, we went into the plaza in search of more affordable food. That's when I saw this lone cafe hidden in a corner at the basement.
The owner, Ms Vinitha Ang, was very friendly and warm. She started to introduce her menu to us and I was sold immediately. Though limited, some of the items on the menu looked interesting enough to warrant a try. I went with the 5 Spices Salad Tofu ($6) which was a new item. Firm yet soft slices of tofu were generously given and also well marinated.
The Not-Tuna Nori Sushi ($7) was a visual feast for the eyes with so many bright and different colours. Taste-wise, it was fabulous! Organic almond pate and wakame were creatively used to imitate the taste of tuna. Thus the name "not-tuna". Though not exactly successful, the savoury sushi was interesting and different from any others I've came across.
Mom had the Mushroom Ramen Soup ($6) as the 8 treasures rice set was already sold out. This had a very flavourful and sweet broth. Again, generous amounts of kombu, mushrooms, corns and other assorted vegetables were given.
Food preparation was a tad slow though as mom was already almost done with the ramen by the time the sushi and tofu were served. However, I took this as a good point as it meant that the food was freshly prepared on order. Tasty yet healthy, what more could I ask for? I'm always slightly partial towards organic food as they carry more flavour and are definitely more healthy than the usual cafe and restaurant fare. This is definitely a hidden gem which I will frequent often!
