Café Ma Maison, Mandarin Gallery

Café Ma Maison, Mandarin Gallery

Café Ma Maison (#02-33/34 Mandarin Gallery333A Orchard Road, tel : +65 6235 6411) opened a while ago taking over the unit that was previously occupied by Antoinette. As the name implies, this was a cafe outfit from the Ma Maison group so it doesn't have the same range of food as their other restaurants.

Café Ma Maison, truffle tonkatsu sando

I was curious about their truffle katsu sando so we got some while wondering if these were really gotten from Tonkatsu by Ma Maison just next door. One could choose between rosu or hire. This was the former with the tell tale strip of fat. The katsu had been brushed with tonkatsu sauce, a smidgen of mustard and a bit of the fine strips of cabbage - but the truffle flavour was barely discernible. Meat was a little hard. Maybe hire minus the tonkatsu sauce would be a better configuration.

Café Ma Maison, fruits sando

Fruit sando was awesome. There was a lot of cream though.

Café Ma Maison, americano

Gotta remember that Ma Maison's Americano isn't the run of the mill diluted brew. This was stronger and more fragrant. With a couple of spoonfuls of the excess cream from the fruit sando, this was reminiscent of the Café Antoinette Crème that Antoinette used to serve here. A ghost of the past.

Café Ma Maison, root beer float

As mundane as their root beer float looked, it was actually pretty nice. As nice as root beer floats could get that is.
