Froth Cafe At The Big Hotel at Middle Road

Froth is a cafe located at the basement of a hotel known as Big Hotel. Once you entered through the entrance at Middle Road, there is a stairs leading to the basement and you can find the cafe on your left.

Basically, the design is based on industrial theme with strong characteristics coming from the cement wall, metal chairs, pipes and cage lamp. It doesn’t have the organised looked from the usual cafe, more of whims and fancy.

The selection of the menu is pretty extensive; ranging from Soups & Salads to Rice & Pasta, Sandwiches to Meat & Seafood to Desserts. And of course the standard coffee and tea and some other beverages.

Cheesy Lobster Sandwich

I was in the mood for sandwich and so I ordered the Cheesy Lobster Sandwich. It came with fries, and that was awesome. The bread they used for the sandwich seems to be some Focaccia with a pretty generous  amount of lobster and a decent amount of cheese. The size of the sandwich wasn’t considerably big. The size of sandwich and fries ratio is about 1:1. Though the ingredient was certainly fresh but I find it a little bland.

Buttermilk Waffle with Earl Grey and Strawberry Ice Cream

I tried two of their recommended desserts, the waffle and Nutella Cheesecake. There are five types of waffles; Buttermilk, Red Velvet, Cheese, Taro and Banana. I actually find the Taro and Cheese interesting but I didn’t try these, instead went for something boring, the Buttermilk Waffle with Strawberry and Earl Grey Ice Cream.

The texture of the Buttermilk Waffle is more bread like with a salty hint. It doesn’t have a crispy outer edge like most waffle. I wouldn’t rate it the best but decent. I like the Earl Grey flavour in the ice cream, it was at the perfect level for me; not too choking or little. But the ice cream isn’t the creamy kind.

Nutella Cheesecake

Between the waffle and Nutella Cheesecake, I prefer the latter. It tasted especially awesome when eaten together with the Hazelnut. Some may find it a little too sweet but acceptable for me.

Lastly, the coffee. A light body with low acidity and medium aroma, nutty and black tea hint.

The service was warm and friendly and the owner is chatty and extremely passionate about food and particularly coffee. I am keen to return to try more of their food, especially the Doritos Crust Winglets and Clam Soup Soba.
