It’s been a year since I first met Liverpool and blogged about his Ciabatta and Kaya Toast. How time flies. Ever since our first meeting, we have been tossing around ideas on what else would Singaporeans like to eat with their Kopi and Teh C.
If you all have been following the blog, you would know that I’d choose a good old fashion cup of Kopi over Cafe Latte anyday. In fact, our polls showed that 46.7% of those polled also prefer Kopi compared with 32.5% who like western style coffee. There have been so many occasions when I am having Cheesecake or Croissant that I wished I could have a cup of Kopi rather than a Cappuccino. Liverpool felt the same way too. So we have been discussing all sorts of stuff that we would love to eat with a cup of Kopi and one of them was freshly baked scones.
So after the idea had been brewing for almost a year, Liverpool finally shifted to his new premises in Chinatown Point installed a new oven and produced his first tray of freshly baked scones!
I have always liked scones since my trip to Bath in England. Slapping on some strawberry jam and clotted cream onto freshly baked, piping hot scones has always been my idea of the perfect afternoon tea. Now I can have it with my cup of Teh C which is even better!
The scones here are light and fluffy but the problem is that there was no clotted cream! (Liverpool’s thinking about it). However, the plus side is that you can have it with Kaya if you wanted. 4/5 (gotta get the clotted cream man!)
If you like you Kopi, you have to try the Kopi here. After going around tasting the various famous Kopi places, I would have to say that the Kopi here ranks as one of the best around. Seriously, I am not just saying this to help him promote his Kopi because he is my friend. I like his Kopi because it is smooth, creamy and fragrant with very little bitterness or acidity. It is just the way I like it. Not only I say, but you can ask any of the “Uncles” sitting around who come three times a day to get their Kopi fix! 4.5/5
Only place in Singapore I know of that you can get freshly baked scones with Kopi and Teh C. And if you pride yourself as a Kopi lover, you should come try the Kopi here and see if you agree with my verdict.
They will be moving to Telok Ayer Hong Lim Green Community Centre, 20 Upper Pickering St S(058284). Business should start next month.
