Recipes for Cakes

Recipes Bistro - Interior

15th November 2011. Eaten by Xin Li.
Recipes Bistro, previously known as Charcoal is managed by Shatec Institutes. It is where the students of the Shatec institutes get to hone their culinary to service skills. Attracted by their 5.00++ SGD High Tea Set, we decided to pop in for some coffee.

The bistro uses Boncafe coffee so if you are looking for gourmet coffee, just head over to Espressoul next door. The high tea set comes with a choice of coffee or tea with a slice of cake.

I had the Opera Cake while my friend had the Strawberry Shortcake.

The Opera Cake fared better in terms of flavor. Perhaps the bitterness of the chocolate helped to offset the saccharine cake a bit. Cracks on the chocolate coating of the Opera cake and a generally oily texture of the two cakes are the most glaring flaws.

Nonetheless, for the price and it being a bistro to train students, I am not expecting a Flor or Kki. Ambience is quite nice as you get to see the action on the street outside. However, it could be a little intimidating at times when you find the other end of the bistro crowding with the bistro crew. Service is okay, thumbs up for the well-informed waiter.
