Wilder Cafe At North Bridge Road

Wilder Cafe has taken over the space of De’Pop Culture Cafe and transformed into a cool, hipster look. From a colourful theme to an industrial theme. The two looks are a far cry.

You will see cemented wall with some plastering looks on it and chairs with metallic frame. As lots of wood material were used, it resulted in a softened industrial theme.

And now, it is a Halal Cafe, good news for all Muslim Cafe Hoppers. One additional choice added to the scene.

When I was at Wilder, it was in its soft launch and was serving only its Brunch dishes. When I saw this uninteresting Brunch Menu of 4 items, and some desserts and beverages, I wanted to turn my back and walk away. But I thought I should give it a chance.

I settled for Prawn and Corn Fritter, Avocado, Homemade Tomato Salsa Topped With Egg. Something which I don’t usually go for as I don’t really enjoy fritter because fritter consists of mainly starch. After my first mouth, I was astonished by this dish. The fritter was filled with sweetness from the corn and chopped onions. It was moist and soft with a crispy outer even though it was seated on a bed of Tomato Salsa. The salsa and avocado gave a refreshing feel to the dish.

The coffee served at Wilder is of medium acidity, medium body with a fruity flavour note. I don’t usually prefer the more acidity coffee but I could accept this as the fruity hint was pretty toned down. I believed they were using a blend with maybe some dark roast beans in it.

I am keen to try more of their food. I will return when they are fully launched.

Rabbit Owl Depot, an ice cream palour, considerably tiny is nestled opposite National Library. The highlight is of course ice cream. For the rest of the food offered, click here.

There are many owl ornaments and a few rabbits placed nicely throughout the cafe. And they have rabbit customized chairs too. Since it is a depot, Rabbit Owl Depot serves their ice cream out of a yellow container.

After trying three flavours from the dozen or more selection, I ordered a Snowflake Waffle set which comes with a scoop of ice cream and an additional scoop. I have the Earl Grey and Coconut. The waffle was nicely done with a golden crisp. It has slightly eggy fragrance though I find the waffle a little too airy as a result it was lacking of a little substance. It would be perfect if the waffle is a little denser.

The ice cream fare better. It was creamy, not too airy and has a nice flavour scent, particularly the coconut ice cream. In it, there were tiny coconut bites which intensify the aroma.

But I was only keen to try the ice cream. I will give the waffle a try at my next visit. For something unique, I was recommended for the the Honey Butterscotch and the Walnut Butterscotch. I tried both and find that it tasted similar due to the Butterscotch. The honey one was sweet than the Walnut one so Walnut Butterscotch was my choice. The other scoop was the Triple C (Coffee, Chocolate and Caramel).

Most of the other flavour that I tried, the feel is that the flavours were trapped, somehow it wasn’t released into the tastebud. It lacked of creaminess and it was on the sweeter end and it was somewhat chewy.
