168) Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters (Singapore) At Upper Thomson
Previously at Thomson V and known as Oz Specialty, but now revamped and repackaged as Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters (Singapore). It has also relocated to 185 Upper Thomson Road, next to Shell Station. White washed and with a larger dining space, Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters now serves proper food besides coffee and desserts.
Coffee beans are mainly sourced from El Salvadorean Pacamara Arabica beans and for repositioning purposes, therefore the existing name.
Came here for brunch on the first day of 2015 (Not Chinese New Year 2015) and yes it is a supper back dated post. There was a massive crowd which left us 4th on the waiting list which took about 25mins before it was our turn.
Managed to get the window seats preferred over the communal table. The much extended menu now serves Starters (All day unless stated), Brunch (9am-4pm), Dinner (5-9pm), Pasta (All Day), Sides and Beverages.
Ordered the beautifully plated Truffle Benedict ($18). Without going into much details, I shall let the picture do the talking.
Satisfied? Spoke for itself? Just to add-on, the Hollandaise Sauce had traces of truffle which boosted my eating experience.
On the other hand, Tony ordered Pesto Cream Sauce Pasta ($16). Adorned with a thick and creamy coat of sauce (perfect!), spaghetti was al dente and generous cubes of chicken. Overall a delightful plate of pasta.
Coffee blend for the day: Roadster, which is their house blend. Cupping notes: Nutty, Chocolate, Butterscotch, Caramel and hint of floral. Managed to pick up Butterscotch, Nutty and Chocolate and not so much of the others. A nice balanced cuppa that isn’t too acidity and still had medium “Oomph” (strength).
Parking was an issue, nevertheless, it was a good cafe experience except for the pricing which is a little steep.
