I was in anticipating since their facebook was up. It took them a pretty long time to start operation. I am not complaining. This may be a good thing so that they will be more prepared.
When I got to know that they have opened their door, I planned for a visit as soon as I can. For those who know Frozen By Thousand Blessing, it is at the same block.
The cafe has a vintage vibe due to the flooring with some industrial element that blended pretty well. It was a pity that there were a structural pillar that kind of hindrance for moving through the cafe.
Currently, they were serving only sandwiches for their soft launch. I certainly hope, they will have more variety when they officially open. Besides sandwiches, there are drinks and cakes too.
Their most popular items for now is the Korean “Fried” Chicken, but I was in the mood for pork so I went with Babi Ponteh. It was a sandwich filled with slice Pork Belly well cooked in dark sauce and some spice. The Pork Belly was nicely scented with the sauce. There was a bed of lightly preserved prickles of shredded carrot and cucumber with some chopped chilli and a leaf of lettuce together with the slice Pork Belly were on Ciabatta. Personally, though I felt a little disgusted by the thick layer of fat, it was simply delish.
For the coffee, I would say it was decent, medium to full body, medium to low acidity with some bitter dark cocoa and somewhat nutty taste note. And perhaps with a little dark berries too.
The sandwich I have was certainly fantastic and I am impressed. I am keen to return to try their House-Cured Salmon and the popular Korean “Fried” Chicken. Nevertheless, I hope The Daily Press could have a little more food on their menu when they officially launched their cafe.
