Mad Nest

Found Mad Nest nested along East Coast Road, after knowing the initial café that I wanted to visit has the chef out of the kitchen after 4pm... What a sad fact..

Nonetheless, I found Mad Nest ambience quite cosy, and has a lot of seating space. It looks like a nice chilling spot for drinks and snacks. So I decided to give this place a try-out for my dinner.

Food is quite limited, or probably after narrowing down to my individual preference. They have a few variety of cuisines (Japanese, Northern Indian, Italian Asian, All-Day Brunch), which is similar to Ogopogo Café, which I have blogged before.

Nonya Curry Chicken Bolo ($16) consists of minced chicken, potatoes, cherry tomatoes & curry leaves in curry, coconut cream. This dish is under the Italian-Asian section, and their pastas do have a section listed under asian sauce. Of course,you are given a choice between spaghetti, linguine, penni, and fusilli. I had of course, chosen penni, for the sake of convenience. When the dish came, the smell of the curry is definitely aiming straight to my nose. It was a nice dish with a bit of sourness, probably due to cherry tomatoes. But as I continued with it, I'm starting to get sick of it.

Tamada Ramen ($12) has charsiew, spinach, egg, & bamboo shoots as ingredients. Soup base is not savory enough, and bamboo shoots probably has been boiled for too long. The only comfort is the charsiew, which has quite a few big pieces, and is the nicest of all ingredients.

Sake Kawa Maki ($4) is actually deep fried salmon skin. I have never tried this before, and I think that the salmon skin is rather sticky, and is not crispy at all. But I like how they prepared their Japanese glutinous white rice, as it is compact and does not fall apart easily even when being chewed.

On the left is their bar counter located directly at the entrance. Further to the right, they have another counter at the back of the café, which probably prepares & serves Japanese food.

It is rather spacious, and ambience is cosy and relax. By looking at their walls, I think they are having an event right now, which revolves around art.

Art about dogs? If you like these dog paintings, you might want to approach one of the crew regarding your interest in it? Nice as they may look, but stealing is definitely prohibited in Singapore... Well, not as if anyone would be able to sneak it out that easily anyway.
