174) Little Part 1 Cafe: Comfort Food, Coffee and Bar At Upper Thomson
Named as the “The Third Place”, Little Part 1 Cafe (LP1) is an indie cafe located in quaint Jasmine Road serving comfort food, coffee and alcohol that make the world goes round. This place is a perfect spot for lunch, dinner or simple a chill out session with friends and family.
Hidden away from the main stretch of Upper Thomson road, this hidden gem can be located behind Thomson Plaza. Parking lots are free, but limited though.
Came here for lunch with Xuan Yi and we were fortunate to have the whole cafe to ourselves. However, it tripped my “skeptical” alarm as such luxury during lunch peak hours often speak of the eatery’s standard.
Mains served here are European/Western cuisine centric, has a wide selection of craft beers, some desserts and coffee. Alert to all alcoholics (I’m not judging =D ), special 25% discount promo is available during Wednesday dinner time to ward off your mid-week stress.
Looking for a change, I ordered Gravy Chicken with Waffles ($17.9). My first taste of this unique concept was at Sin Lee Food which didn’t impress me at all. Another place which I’ve known of its availability is at The Beast. Got to check that out soon!
Not only was the food photogenic, it tasted impressive and portion was huge too! The waffle was “chewy”, soft yet dense, was drizzled with maple syrup and complemented really well with the juicy slabs of fried chicken. Savoury and sweet, all packed in each mouthful.
The Scallopini Crepe ($18.9) contained grilled chicken, herbs, thinly sliced onions and generous portion of mozzarella cheese. Portion was great and was orgasmic (taste) too!
The crepe was a little chewy, the meat had substance, while the cheese and white wine sauce not just only whetted my appetite, but wet it as well.
The latte ($5) left me speechless! Reminded me of “never judge a book by its cover”! Good aroma, had hint of chocolate, medium bodied with a smooth and clean finishing. I enquired about the beans, but could only be disclosed that it is from a local supplier.
Amazing lunch session! Great food, portion and price. Definitely a recommended spot! Wonder if there is a Little Part 2 Cafe ?
