Nuffnang Lovin' x Criollo Cocoa Cafe

With the increasingly craze in cafe hopping, cafes are in high demand in Singapore. My Instagram timeline is always filled with foodie and latte art photos from different cafes in Singapore. Yeah, Latte Art is the in thing now! I am really amazed, how many cafes are there in Singapore? How can one has so many cafes to visit without repeating them???

Today I am going to introduce you a nice cafe to hang out at in town, 
Criollo Cocoa Cafe

Criollo Cocoa Cafe is located at Orchard Gateway, a perfect hangout spot to fuel and recharge for shopping sprees. They are selling all day breakfast, burgers, waffles, ice cream and drinks.

Here's what we were having:

Piperade

The dish was prepared with baked egg, tomato, bacon and onions. It was served crispy toast. The dish was shared among groups of 4. Mine was shared between 6 person because we have a larger group.

Portobello Mushroom Burger with fries

My favourite of all because the staff prepared an additional plate for our table so Grace and I have this all to ourselves.

We were skeptical about trying the mushroom burger initially because we were so used to have a meat burger. Upon the first bite, we immediately fall in love with it. The mushroom was juicy and delicious, and the cheddar cheese enhanced the flavour of the burger. It definitely does not lose out to the meat burger. The fries on the other hand was slight salty.

Seafood Tagliatelle in Spicy Laksa Sauce

A great combination of laksa sauce together with pasta. It immediately spiced up my appetite with the laksa sauce.

After filling our stomach, we then went on for a demo session on Latte Art, an up and coming hobby that many coffee enthusiasts are taking up.

The barista was patiently teaching us the steps and technique on making our fresh cuppa.

The barista demonstrated 2 different types of latte art. The one she was currently doing was free pour. The height of pouring and control is important.

The end result.

The second one she was doing was drawing a design on the white foam.

The end result. Which design do you prefer?

Thanks Nuffnang for organising this get together session.
