Teatime @ Shokudo, Cathay Cineplex, Orchard

So, when you looking for a quench under the scorching hot Saturday afternoon, where will you go?

It so happened that we passed by this shop, so often, then we did not even bother to check out what is actually sevring in it. The outside of the shop was so plain whitish deco in which does not serve as an attraction to me!

But we've decided to give it a chance, also, to fulfill our thirst towards any icy or refreshment can ease our disappointment for not getting any tickets to the movie!
Shokudo, a Japanese Coffee House (so-called) actually offers a variety of Japanese-Western mix menu, ranging from the traditional katsu-don, to the weirdest unagi cheese pizza. So, since we were there for the tea-time, we pampered ourselves with a small dessert, a side dish and the appetizer.

For starter, we have this lovely Mango-Ebi rolls, served with slight spicy mayonnaise, rolled in a lovely rice paper.
The presentation was good, but frankly, we do not like this dish that well. Firstly lack of flavour which the main ingredient of ebi tenpura, mango which too raw to have the sourness overwhelm other ingredients.

Next we have our Unagi Cheese Pizza, topped with bonito flakes.


Surprisingly, the barbecued unagi match so well with the cheese toppings, along with the enhancement from the mushroom and bonito flakes, just well, if you put into your watering mouth with spike of tabasco. Yummy, highly recommended dish! The super-thin crust of the dish welly bake, and it is super crusty when served.

Lastly, wince our main mission is to refresh our thirst, the Macha Iced, topped with Japanese red bean and chestnut seriously will light up your day. The sweetness of the matcha syrup is well harmonized by the milk and red bean, along with the icy yet chewy mochi served. Yes, another highly reccomended.
Mochi that comes along has already has its flavour, which will even lifted up when scooped along with the matcha ice!

Well, if you are looking for a quench in the mid-noon, consider this place!
