AEIOU Cafe At King George’s Avenue Lavender

* Updated with revisit on 30 Jan 2015

AEIOU Cafe is located along King George’s Avenue perpendicular to Lavendar Road, around Jalan Besar,. It has a very cute Dino as its mascot. You can find this little mascot literary at every corner of the cafe. I first notice it on the cup and then a wooden plate.

As I was chatting with a friend of the cafe owner whom helped to set up the cafe, I found that this little Dino loves Chocolate and it is signifying life, carefree and child-like so the theme is extended to the cafe and you can find colourful cute ornaments and cushy bright pillows with cute characters displayed throughout the space.

The entire cafe is filled with lots of cute ornaments made from the oil drums.

They have customise-made their cups and plates too. Lots of effort has been put into the every details and of course the food they served as well.

Mushroom Soup

I ordered a Mushroom Soup. It was served with 2 slices of Garlic bread which seems to be baguette. The Mushroom Soup was drizzled with quite some truffle oil and when served, I could smell the wonderful truffle aroma. The Mushroom Soup was slightly creamy and has tons of blended mushrooms in it. A very flavourful bowl of soup. The only complaint I have was there were some fibrous stuff in it that was a little unpleasant.

Osmanthus Jasmine Cake

I wanted the Yuzu Jasmine Cheesecake but was unavailable that day and so I settled for the Osmanthus Jasmine Sponge Cake. The sponge cake was awesome; soft and fluffy, lightly sweetish. It would have been perfect if the Osmanthus were stronger.

Cappuccino

Finally, my cup of Cappuccino. AEIOU is one of the rare cafe that chose to serve a dark roast instead of the medium or light roast. The coffee was robust with full body, low acidity and a nutty and nutmeg spice hint.

I revisited AEIOU cafe after its official opening with my Mom as they have their full menu up.

Good news for Vegetarian Cafe Hopper, AEIOU serves quite a good selection of Vegetarian dishes. And good news for Tea Drinkers, they have a about 2 pages of different Teas.

Spring Villes

We ordered a Side Dish, Spring Villes. We enjoyed this dish most among all our other orders. This is an adapted version of the Vietnamese Roll. It is a made up prawns, greens and interesting some brightly coloured edible flowers. It tasted great with the Sourish Peanut dip. It was absolutely awesome.

This Salad Is No Quack (Duck Confit Salad)

We have a Salad too, “This Salad Is No Quack”, which is basically a Duck Confit Salad. The dressing for the salad is a simple olive oil. The flavours comes mainly from the oranges. A side Honey Mustard sauce was accompanied with a good portion of Duck Leg. It is very much like a Main Dish to me. My Mom enjoyed this but I find the Duck Confit too salty even when it was eaten together with the salad.

Moo-licious Cheeks (Beef Cheek Tagliatelle Pasta)

Lastly (technically not our last dish), we shared a Main, Moo-licious. It is a Beef Cheek with Tagliatelle Pasta with balsamic vinegar. The sourish Balsamic vinegar went well with the Beef but not with Pasta. We didn’t enjoy this dish.

Blueberry Lemon Meringue

Finally, it was time for dessert. Among the mainly choices, we have the Blueberry Lemon Meringue. The cake was a little too dense while the Meringue was icy, it didn’t melt in the mouth. The Lemon flavour was stronger than the Blueberry. I wish it was better balanced. Personally, I felt there are rooms for improvement.

Thai Iced Coffee

l tried their Thai Iced Coffee this round. I tasted like our Kopitiam Iced Kopi that has a slight sourish tinge.

There are some changes to the cafe, lots of paintings were hung on the walls.

AEIOU cafe has pretty interesting food selection on its menu which is a little different to the cafe scene. And also the cakes were unique in flavours. But I think there are still rooms for improvement.

  1. dear blogger. Just one thing to correct in your post.The picture depicted that you labelled as a ‘cappuccino’ looks more like a latte to me

    1. Hi Annonymous,
      Oh really?! Interesting. I indeed ordered a Cappuccino and not a Latte. Latte is never my cup of coffee. Thanks for your feedback.

      By the way, how do you differential a Cappuccino and a Latte from the look? Hope you could give me a few pointers.

      Cheers
      NAHMJ (Michelle)
