HarriAnn’s Delight At Bugis Junction

HarriAnn’s Delight is a Kopitiam serving traditional coffee. It is located at a corner of Bugis Junction, ground floor, outside BHG departmental store, facing Victoria Street. It is kind of hidden, not very obvious.

There are mainly seats with no air-condition.

HarriAnn’s Delight offers 6 tea/breakfast set and 4 main meal sets with a Special of the day. Out of the 6 tea/breakfast sets served at HarriAnn’s Delight, I tried 2. The first I tried was the Set A5. It consisted of 4 pieces of Bite-sized Kueh and 3 Ondeh Ondeh (Chocolate, Yam and Gula Melaka, one each). The kueh were soft and it didn’t stick to my teeth and it has a strong enough coconut fragrance but unfortunately, they tasted very much the same with no strong distinct flavours. After trying the two other original flavours, the Chocolate and Yam, I still prefer the Gula Melaka. A pity that the Gula Melaka is a little too diluted.

The second was the A3 set with tea/coffee, 2 eggs & Chiffon Cake, choice of Orange or Pandan. The Chiffon Cake was soft and a nice orangish aroma.

I tried their Yellow Bean Paste Ang Ku Kueh too. Alternative, you could choose the Peanut ones. The bean paste is lightly sweetened. That’s the way I like.

There were much raving about its Laksa so I was curious to find out how it fare so I ordered a set and it came with a drink. I opted for Iced Honey Lemon. I didn’t quite like the Honey Lemon as it left an unpleasant aftertaste that linger for quite a while in the mouth. As for the Laksa, it was creamy and full of sweetness with decent amount of prawns, fish cake slices and Tau Po but a little lack of the Laksa fragrance from the Laksa Leaf.

Overall, HarriAnn’s Delight is a nice place to have kopi break or a quick lunch. I am keen to try their Curry Chicken and Polo Bun next.

LJJ Cafe (梁佳吉), A Kopi Shop, At Circuit Road

LJJ Cafe sounded like some western modern cafe, but it is actually some sort similar to Toastbox or Heavenly Wang or Killiney. Its Chinese name is 梁佳吉,  located on Circuit Road, an area with senior folks, I find it very apt. It is also a good addition with Nom Cafe nearby.

I find the menu intriguing, a Chinese vs a English menu. It was pretty cool.

LJJ Cafe has a very vintage feel as on one of the wall, it has all the vintage poster and games and of course the red metal gate added to the element.

For a change, I ordered the Steamed Bread but it wasn’t available so I got the Toasted Bread instead. It wasn’t a bad choice as I always prefer Toasted Bread. The amount of kaya and butter was pretty generous and the kaya has a good pandan and coconut flavour. If you prefer crispy stuff, opt for crackers. The coffee wasn’t as good as the food. I certainly think it could be better.

In LJJ Cafe, beside the Kaya Butter Toast, you can also find Nasi Lemak, Chicken Curry, Mee Siam and also Ham or Sausage with different type of Egg Breakfast Set. There are some cakes too.

I got 2 pieces of the cake. They were using fresh cream instead of butter cream.

LJJ Cafe offered delish food. A great addition to the area.
