Cooling down like a smurf at Mushroom Cafe

The Lions were thinking of going for a little run and could not really think of a place to run.... The usual running route? Nah... too boring... then Cute Cute had an idea of running at macritchie reservoir which was somewhere that both of them had yet to go for sometime. While getting warmed up, they noticed this little cafe that popped out to serve the visitors there. Mushroom cafe mushroomed out and had a variety of food for sale.
Having a stretch before going for a run
The only cafe there, Mushroom Cafe might be written off as one of those off the mill cafes, the items being sold are also rather similar to the ones that are sold outside. But take a closer look, Mushroom cafe does sell a few unique items.

Cuchi took a few items that her friends recommended which seem normal but they turn out to be rather good. Of course, later Cute Cute also found out that mushroom cafe is actually under the old chang kee group.

After trying out some of their food, the lions gave some reviews on the food that they tried.

Kaya Toast
Toast is nice and fluffy. Not very crispy but the corn flakes inside the bread makes it crispy when you bite into it.

Curry Puff
It's from old chang kee....

Chicken wing
Something that Cuchi likes because she loves the fried food from old chang kee.

Yam Cake
Do not bother with this.... the cake is too hard and not really tasty.

Mushroom cafe is a good place to hang around after your run or just to pop in for a meal. There's scenery abound and unfortunately there are also LOTS of monkeys. However, they do add to the ambience of the place.... just do not feed them!
