After many trips to my work headquarters, I am surprised that I did not know about about this place sooner. The K Gourmet Cafe must be an insiders secret that there is even hardly any results from a search on google!
I was back at the HQ today to judge the finalists for a blog competition with my colleague Joy. It was noon when we ended and we decided to have lunch together with our other colleagues, Eka, Weilin and Rou Hui.
It was just a walking distance from Science Park II. We walked past a couple of condominium looking buildings which I found out later was the NUS hostels, and then we headed to a white nondescript looking building.
The inside revealed that it was already quite full of people whom were having their lunch. We waited for a moment for an empty table and I admired the surrounding scenery of the fountains as well as the bright, cheery and cosy interior of the cafe.
Being that we were there during lunch hour peak, the service was a tad slow. Nevertheless, the staff were friendly and hospitable. Impressively, despite the crunch, none of them appeared harried at all.
We queued up at the cash register to order what we wanted and paid for the food. There, I was most amazed when I saw the prices. The items here were pretty affordable. There isn’t even any service charge. I did not spend more than $10 for my food.
This was my grilled chicken pizza ($4.50) It was not the best pizza that I had but it was still pretty decent. I love that the crust was flat and the toppings were pretty succulent. The chicken was pretty juicy and the bell pepper and mushroom tasted fresh. I wish the dough was softer and warmer but really, for this price, I am not complaining 🙂
For drinks, I had ice lemon tea ($1.20) You can tell that this was home made as it was pulpy which I loved.
This was Joy’s fish and chips. It looks really good. When asked, the only issue that she felt that would make it better was if it arrived warmer and crispier.
This was Eka’s fried rice with fried chicken. The chicken looks appetizing doesn’t it? The fact that Eka finished the entire plate shows that she enjoyed her meal 🙂
And this was Rou Hui’s beef rice which he said was decent. Judging from the amount of meat on the plate, it looked like a hearty meal and filling meal.
And of course, seeing how affordable the place was, I could not help myself and bought dessert. Isn’t my ‘Last Man Standing’ ice cream colourful? My vanilla ice cream has a piece of wafer, slice of strawberry, sliced almond, sprinkles and even fudge! And its only $2! I am loving this place more and more 😀
I’m definitely coming to this place again.
