Corduroy Cafe and scrumptious desserts.

Last Saturday, Shan and I went to Corduroy Cafe at Vivocity.

The entrance of the cafe is beautiful. It's not the local Starbucks with its trademark green mermaid you can recognise a mile away. It is rustic, tucked away in a corner, quiet and private. And the Parisien/European deco is a refreshing change for me. Clocks, photographs and paintings on the wall, and it is almost personal, like the inside of someone's home. Love the tiles!

Shan and I were spoilt for choice, which ranks as awesome in my book. Luscious desserts, warm and hearty soups and the smell of coffee are sooooo intoxicating!

We ordered quite a selection, because we might we well try lots since we were there.
  • Verdure - a selection of antipasti like grilled zucchini, roasted peppers, mushrooms and aubergine. Which is just another fancy name for eggplant.
  • Cafe au lait
  • Creamy Panna cotta with wild berries compote
  • Earl Grey creme brulee
  • Onion soup
Check out the desserts! Beautiful and almost too pretty to sink your spoon in.

Creamy Panna cotta with wild berries compote. The panna cotta is simmered to perfection and the sweet wild berries compote goes down so well with the silky smooth cream. It has been a week and I can still remember how divine it is.

Earl Grey Creme Brulee is unexpectedly divine too. The light lingering taste of Earl Grey after sets off the sweet custard. For the 2 of us who had been stuffing ourselves with desserts, we were sick from eating all the sweet sugary treats. The Earl Grey was a great relief.

Assorted berries dusted with sugar!

Shan and I agreed that a monthly high tea is only fitting after such a scrumptious spread. It is very girly, I know. Not to mention fattening but hey, you only live once and no better time to enjoy it!
