As far as I can remember, I've never really eaten anything from Coffee Club before, except for its signature Muddy Mud Pie which I adore very much. Other than that, it has always been for the teatime (or evening time) drinks as an accompaniment to friendly conversations. This time was still no different, we were here just to sit around for a chat or two, but to keep it going we naturally got little somethings to munch away as well.
Hazelnut Caramel Tart (above): 4.5/5
I admit that I enjoyed the hazelnut caramel tart more than others would, but the layer of sweet caramel amidst chocolate powder and a mix of dark and milk chocolate underneath wins my vote anytime. I must also add that there's more of them hazelnuts in the tart for that extra crunch. If this came warmer with a slightly thicker (perhaps less bland-tasting) biscuit crust, I would love it even more.
Grilled Cajun Chicken Salad
Elaine picked the salad because it looked "pretty" and "colourful" on the menu, and I kinda agree with the "colourful" bit. Of course, you will never find me eating a salad, not something a carnivore like me would say yes to, but I'm sure most girls simply love their salads.
And of course, if you're here at Coffee Club, have some coffee to perk you up :)
Contrary to Hungrygowhere reviews, the service here is actually quite good and they refilled our glasses with iced water pretty frequently.
