155) The Daily Press: Sarnies & Coffee All Day All Night At Toa Payoh
Launched on 15 December 2014, The Daily Press cafe offers wacky sandwiches and perky coffee in the mature estate of Toa Payoh. In the midst of the contemporary theme lies a subtle touch of Peranakan flavour depicted from the tiles.
Despite a rainy afternoon, I managed to find this gem after my coaching session nearby.
After looking through menu, I decided to try the Babi Ponteh Sandwich ($12) which is a Peranakan influenced sandwich. In fact, the owner of the cafe is a Peranakan himself and the recipe is inherited from his mother.
The braised meat was succulent and tender. It would have been better if it was packed with more juice!
I was informed that there are numerous version of recipes for Babi Ponteh. Some would prefer it sweeter, some with an intensified flavour or a milder version like the one offered here at The Daily Press.
As the cafe is still at their infancy stage, so stay tune for their Babi Ponteh as they fine tune the recipe along the way.
Coffee was great! From the taste of it, I am guessing that there were beans from Ethiopia and Brazil.
After verification, I was partially right as the blend is Speakeasy (Brazil, Guatemala and Ethiopia Sidamo) from Liberty Cafe, one of the largest roasters in Singapore.
Each latte comes with a double shot of ristretto, therefore you are guaranteed a robust and flavourful cup of latte!
The Daily Press do offer food portions to share and artisanal tea by Allerines and freshly squeezed juices.
Great addition to the list of cafes in Singapore and a great place for brunch!
