Strangers' Reunion

Having opened since 2012, and seeing tons of reviews from foodies-alike, I finally paid Strangers' Reunion a visit.

For a cafe to be well-liked by patrons, I have always believed location has to easily accessible. But from the look of Strangers' Reunion, location is secondary when the moment you walked in and sniffed the aromatic coffees, as well as the pleasing main from the plates.

Strangers' Reunion does serve a variety of food, and also on the growing trend healthy eating, yogurt is also available in the menu, if you looking for something light, unfailing your diet routine.

Cafe Latte ($4.90). As mentioned earlier, aromatic smell of the coffees in Strangers' Reunion is sure to perk you up! While I am not much of a coffee drinker, my companion does agree with the mass that the coffee here is definitely to-order-for.

House Smoked Salmon Benedict ($18.90) with hazelnut bearnaise, fera, walnut crumble, petit salad & sultana bread. Generous serving of salmon slices and a pair of oozy egg benedicts. Both of these items have made up a wonderful brunch already. If you noticed, hollandaise sauce is not used, but something like a gravy type. Are you a yolk-cautious kind of person?

Truffle Fries ($14.90). I admit that the price is steeper than what you would normally expect in other cafes, and I do feel the ache too. Despite the price, it has a strong truffle smell, and the serving is deem suitable to be shared among 2 pax as a side dish.

Another recommendation in Strangers' Reunion is their buttermilk waffles! Buttermilk Waffles with Homemade Mixed Berry Compote ($14.90), with choice of either Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream. I had of course, opt for the Greek yogurt, as ice cream is too commonly used in other cafes.

Strangers' Reunion waffles are crispy on the outer, but fluffy in the inside. This enable the yogurt and berry sauce to get soak into the waffle when dabbed, allowing the sweetness not just on the outside.

We went around 3 plus in the late afternoon, but the cafe is still pretty packed. Although each of the crew are busy, they do also diligently attend to your requests when requested. Service is definitely up to mark.

It can be pricey and low ease of accessibility, but it did not really dampen the satisfaction of the food we ordered, as well as the crowd. In other words, it's quite worth to pay more for a satisfactory meal in Strangers' Reunion.
