ARC Coffee: Academy.Roastery.Cafe at Kampong Glam
ARC Coffee at Kampong Glam is probably the first and only 3 in 1 coffee entity in Singapore. Serving coffee and a mini roaster (at the back) at level 1 and an academy for coffee classes in level 2, ARC Coffee is founded by Singapore’s coffee expert, Ryan Ting.
The meticulous effort invested in the art of coffee is demonstrated throughout ARC Coffee. With walls laid with white bricks, interior lighted with warm industrial lights and lined up with nicely furnished wooden table top, it’s all about the details.
Menu is neatly designed with a concise selection from Brunch, Mains, Sides and Beverages.
Calvin and I came from lunch just next door, thus coffee and snack were our only orders. Piccolo was served with double shots of ristretto to give that extra punch! Lovely flavours and smooth texture from the coffee.
Priced at $5.5, I guess that’s the amount one pays for a good cuppa from an expert?
We ordered Truffle Fries ($11.80) served with crispy fried thick shoestring fries doused with generous amount of truffle oil and tossed in cheese. Pretty awesome, one of the best I’ve eaten!
What caught my attention was Ray’s Ben (sounded like Ray-ban sunglasses) is actually Chef Raymond’s rendition of Egg’s Benedict. Although I didn’t try it, but it’s description was rather tempting.
Other two dishes were The Pork and Pulled Pork Burger. The former is basically roasted pork belly while the latter is the 8 hours slow cooked pork which is my Achilles heel when it’s available on food menu.
Will definitely try them when I am around the next time! Service was on the ball and efficient too.
