Are you guys a fan of kopi like me too? For me, afternoon break is not a fancy cup of English tea, but something local like a toast and a cup of Kopi, just to freshen the mind. And boy, I was super happy when I was invited to a food tasting at Toast Box @ *Scape!
|I was told that the toys deco are exclusive to this outlet. Well, coz it's *SCAPE! A place for the youth.|
In conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival 2011, Toast Box has introduced 5 new toasts and 2 drinks to their family! We even got to taste some of the toasts that were already on the menu and let me 'walk' you guys through it.Established in December 2005 with its first outlet at Food Republic Wisma Atria, Toast Box has grown steadily to achieve cult status among fans for its coffee and toast concept. Toast Box has fast expanded with 33 outlets in Singapore and 12 outlets in Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia. ToastBox is owned and managed by the BreadTalk Group Limited.
|I ordered the Pepsi Calamansi.|
|They were generous with the Kamquat! There were at least 3 in there.|
The others ordered the MANGO ALOE VERA ($2.80). I had a little sip and it was sweet! Fans of mango should try this! It's a delightful mix of mango puree, fresh milk and ice topped with chunks of mango and aloe vera. Aloe Vera is said to have good healing effects, so I guess it's good for the ladies right?? *wink*
|The infamous mountain of butter!|
First toast of the day was HEBI HIAM THICK TOAST that's on their regular menu.
This is definitely one of my favourite toast. Well, maybe coz I'm a SPICE GIRL? LOL! The toast was 'burnt' till the right amount and the spiciness was just right to the average Singaporean. As I ate, I could even taste the mild 'Hebi' = dried prawn sweetness!
|Ok! A little commercial time.|
|We had another 2 toast served.|
This is the TOM YUM GARLIC THICK TOAST ($1.80). What's interesting is that the Toast Box's very own recipe Tom Yum paste and freshly chopped garlic, chilli and spring onion is spread across the toast and toasted on that side, so that you get the whole fragrance into the bread. It resembles alot like the garlic bread, but there was also a hint of spiciness. However, I find it a little too salty and I thought it would be better if there was more "tom yum-ness" to it.
TA-DA! The OTAH THICK TOAST. It's served with a leaf on top and the different thing about it is that the toast has the bread sides or 'skin' removed and toasted with the side with the Otah paste applied on.
|Uncovering the mystery of it all...|
This is the BUTTER MILK THICK TOAST ($1.80). On the top is a thick layer of toasted butter and fresh milk and same like the OTAH THICK TOAST, this is also toasted the other way round. It's super sweet and makes one feel in love! I chose the middle piece, the one that's been toasted the most and it tastes heavenly. This would definitely go well with a cup of kopi!
|See the thick crust on top? Reminds me of Bo Luo Bao! Actually it tastes much like that, just with a fuller milky taste.|
|This much picks was used!|
|On the left: Peanut Butter Ice Cream (light brown) and On the right: Kaya Ice Cream (white)|
|Then we have the coffee ice cream on the back.|
Usually, they are served by one flavour only. And I would highly recommend the PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM THICK TOAST ($4.80). Why? Coz, it contains crunchy bits of caramelised peanut, that give the ice cream texture and I couldn't stop eating it! It just tastes so much like peanut butter with milk and ice! I can't resist.
|Peanut Ice Cream is garnished with peanuts and topped with whip cream.|
Kopi Lovers will definitely love the KOPI ICE CREAM THICK TOAST ($4.80). It tastes just like the traditional Nanyang coffee Toast Box is well known for, and topped with whipped cream and almonds it's definitely great for the warm weather.
So as mentioned, for the Singapore Food Festival 2011, Toast Box has come up with 4 "value meals", so you can save money and enjoy their delicious food!
