The Coffee Academics, Scotts Square
We've been to Hong Kong a number of times and have for some reasons never noticed The Coffee Academics. Never had an inkling that such a place existed. Not a caffeine-y whiff. Nada. While I couldn't say that I was particularly intrigued, we came by the outpost here (#02-01/02 Scotts Square, 6 Scotts Road, tel : +65 6538 1940) for coffee and a bite.
That coffee that they have with black pepper and agave....needs better/more pepper. But that's just me. Or maybe just the one that I had. That aroma was there but not quite.
We tried something called naked torpedo. Some crusty fried tube of bechamel and crab with skin akin to goreng pisang. I actually kinda liked it.
But simply couldn't understand why it had to be served in a little wooden tray thingy. Maybe they just enjoyed cleaning up the crumbs.
