Just when you think the Taiwanese cafe can’t get any hotter, what with their hyped-about stacked toasts and all, they’re about to send us in a frenzy all over again, with a new concept cafe, and second outlet, in Orchard. This time called Dazzling Café Pink, and located at Orchard Gateway, there’s also a new menu of savoury food and desserts to welcome us — but more on that later.
While the first flagship cafe at Capitol Piazza had a mint and pastel theme, and feels idyllic in comparison, this time, there’s a carnival-themed ambience, with the colours pink and black across the walls, tables, and bunny-eared seats.
The outlet will also unveil an interesting dining-and-shopping lifestyle concept, and will carry popular fashion accessory cult brands that will mark their debut here in Singapore. These include Vita Fede, Yun Yun Sun and Vanessa Mooney, which run the gamut of whimsical earrings, fine jewellery to stylish cuffs.
Now, we’ll get to the food. The cafe’s pretty renowned for their desserts, but looking through the savoury section of the menu’s worth it too.
They’re offering an array of brunch-style food, including a Lobster Risotto, Duck Confit Burger, and Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, and if we know anything about their toast, the brioche bun and charcoal bread on which the poached eggs sit atop should be toasted to perfection too.
As for the desserts, if you’re a fan of the matcha honey toast, you’ll love its waffle version — the Matcha Waffle with Azuki Beans, presented in a radial flower pattern for easy access and maximum Instagram potential. Of course, all their desserts look lovely. The towering Oreo Chocolate Honey Toast looks great too, and is bound to have yummy surprises hidden within, while the exclusive Pandan Milk Tea Honey Toast has probably all our favourite flavours stuffed into one, what with salted gula melaka, caramel, milk tea, and honey, topped with a local pandan twist. We can’t wait to head down.
