Here’s what was ordered.

Part of Drinks Menu

'Sou Mei' Tea with Wolfberry Fruits $1.00

Interesting cup that helps to filter out the tea leaves. If you are interested in getting one, I the shop name and address is in the first photo. However, I feel that for a lazy person like me, I will find it a hassle to keep removing the filter before drinking.

Sou Mei’ Tea with Wolfberry Fruits was fragrant and wolfberry provides lots of health benefits. You can request for the waiter/waitress to refill with hot water whenever you have finished drinking it.

Soup 'La Mian' topped with slices of classic marinated chicken $7.70

 

The Soup ‘La Mian’ topped with slices of classic marinated chicken as promised came with the la mian and chicken in the soup. The la mian is similar to the likes of crystal jade, however, it was slightly harder. The chicken was well marinated; fragrant and tender despite being soaked in the soup. Thought that the chicken was delicious!  Disappointingly, the soup base was a tad too salty. This dish would have been great and healthy if it was less salty and vegetables was added.

Spiced flavoured 'la mian' $6.70

The Spiced flavoured ‘la mian’ was topped with minced pork, peanut, seasame & preserved vegetable served in dry with special meat sauce. It was amazing delicious on the first few mouthfuls. However, towards the end, it got too spicy for us. If you have a good tolerance for spicy food, this is a good bet.

Overall, a decent place. During peak periods, be prepared to queue. Service was prompt and decent.

Good Morning Nanyang Cafe 早安南洋 (Sembawang)

*Been busy lately and am going overseas for work for 1 week. Next post is likely at least 1.5 weeks later* =)

First ate at Good Morning Nanyang Cafe at its Chinatown’s outlet. Back then there was only that outlet and I have not started this blog. The Chinatown outlet was too far for me to visit frequently. I was thrilled when I heard that they have recently opened another outlet at Sembawang Shopping Centre. I have been craving for their Orange Ciabatta Toast for sometimes!

Good Morning Nanyang Cafe is similar to Yakun, Killiney and Toast Box seling breakfast sets such as Kaya Toast, half boiled eggs, coffee/tea. Their differentiation point is their kaya(which is home-made) and Orange Ciabatta Toast.

Decided to visit this place for late lunch (230pm) on a Sunday.

Good Morning Nanyang Cafe seems to have undergone some changes. The signage has changed. The menu has changed with some new items. The price has also changed. One thing I must mention is that their location at Sembawang Shopping Centre is a prime location! It is located Just along the main entrance of the shopping centre. With the glass walls, anyone who walks into the shopping centre will definitely see Good Morning Nanyang Cafe!

Moreover, noticed that the shop was quite crowded (230pm to 4pm). More than Fish & Co next door which was virtually empty except for one customer.

Notice the sink hidden at the left? Now you can crack your half boiled eggs and eat your toast with ease without the need to walk to the toilets to wash your hands.

Menu

Menu: Toast Sets and Local Delights

Tea

The tea was too sweet. Should have ordered their coffee instead since everyone (online)  has been praising about its coffee.

Queue Number Tag

Queue number tag for the rest of the orders (Orange Ciabatta, Laksa and Mee Rebus).

Laksa $4.00

Surprisingly, the Laksa was served faster than the Orange Ciabatta. There were pieces of dried toufu, fish cakes, hums, 1 whole piece of hard boiled egg, a piece of prawn accompanied by thick bee hoon. The prawn was firm and has been de-shelled, it was fresh. The laksa gravy was slightly spicy. As a whole, it was not lousy nor was it fantastic. Felt it could have been more fragrant and that more dried shrimps could be added. For now, I would still prefer 928 Yishun Laksa (have been almost 1 year since my last visit there).

Mee Rebus $3.60

I am not an expert in eating Mee Rebus (can’t comment much). The sauce was not bad accompanied by yellow noodles, beansprouts,  toufu, 1 whole hard boiled egg, 1 piece of lime and pieces of green chilli.

Orange Ciabatta Toast $2.80

Ciabatta is an Italian white bread made with yeast and wheat flour.

The Orange Ciabatta is unlike the tradition toast you get in Yakun and is much softer.   It is baked with orange peel served with butter and kaya spread. It arrived warm and came slightly later than Laksa! (though that Laksa would come later as some cooking is required. Much effort has been done to make this Ciabatta.) Oh yes, did I mention that the kaya is home-made. The Kaya tasted different from Yakun’s and was much more fragrance (not overly sweet) with a hint of coconut. I can eat this everyday! Yummy!

The Orange Ciabatta is a must try! Because of this item, I would rate this as a ‘die die must try!’ store.

Shuttle Bus Schedule

The good news is that there is free shuttle bus to Sembawang Shopping Centre for residents living in Yishun, Sembawang and Woodlands. The bus service is quite frequent. Operating hours of the bus service is stated in the flyer above.

Domani Cafe

Domani is an Italian word which means tomorrow. They serve Spanish Italian cuisine and is located at Ngee Ann City ( Takashimaya). Quite nice interior designs. Looks like an expensive pace to dine in, but with the lunch time promotion, its not. There was a queue when we went there during lunch hours on Christmas Eve. Waited about 15-20 minutes.

Lunch-Time Promotion

There were having this lunch time promotion. (Not sure if the lunch time promotion is still on) Today’s Soup + Choice of Main Course + Choice of Drink from $10.90 onwards. Drinks include House Coffee, Iced Tea, Coke, 7-Up or Pearl of Orient. We both ordered Pearl of Orient which is Jasmine and Rose Tea.

Minestrone Soup

Minestrone Soup was forgettable. Nothing fantastic.

Spaghetti Gumbo Seafood

Spaghetti Gumbo Seafood $13.90

I ordered the Spaghetti Gumbo Seafood $13.90. Braised Prawns, mussel, squid in gumbo sauce. Its been sometime since I ate this. But I remember that the pasta is hard. The prawn was not fresh; the meat was not firm. The squid was rubbery and hard, most likely was overcooked.

Spaghetti Salsiccia Sausage Balsamic

Spaghetti Salsiccia Sausage Balsamic $10.90

She ordered Spaghetti Salsiccia Sausage Balsamic. Can’t remember much about this dish, except that the spaghetti was hard too.

Pearl of Orient

Tea bag in the Tea Pot

The Pearl of Orient; Jasmin and Rose Tea. Not bad quite fragrant. Luckily we both ordered this and did not order something normal like coke or ice tea. Guess this is the best ‘dish’!

As you can see read, my top of mind awareness of Domani Cafe is that the pasta is hard. Not exactly what a F&B restaurant would want to be associated with. Of course, you may find that the pasta is not hard, its all a matter of personal perspective. So do read this with a pinch of salt.
