Chef Icon Nature Bakery revisited

After having nasi beriyani and ayam penyet at the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, our usual habit is to go for coffee next. The nearest place is either the Highlander, or Chef Icon. After last week’s disastrous trip to Arbite, where the coffee was so bad it’s best forgotten (I shall however post about it soon) I didn’t want to come up with more new places to visit. So it was back to the tried and tested.

We like Highlander, but the seating sucks there. It’s very crammed and almost always full. Chef Icon is just a few shops away and the coffee is also very good. In fact, Chef Icon buys its coffee beans from the Highlander, so the taste is almost the same. But, as mentioned previously, there is a little recessed room which is very nice to relax in while sipping the cuppa. Once again, Chef Icon was totally empty so we got the little room all to ourselves. I wonder why people don’t know about Chef Icon and rather squash themselves at the Highlander. People do know about Chef Icon’s chocolate Trovona cake though. I saw the stack of receipts the boss had at the cash register. One day’s worth of orders. Looked like at least 50 receipts!

Kaya puff thingy with sesame seeds. It was puffy, crispy, flaky, light, airy and damn tasty. Just wish there was more kaya in it!

After lunch at the railway station, we decided to have a cuppa nearby. We decided to go to Highlander along Kampong Bahru Road, which is very near the railway station. Highlander has really nice coffee and chocolate mousse cake. Unfortunately, it was closed for the Vesak Day holidays so we backtracked and stopped at Chef Icon Nature Bakery a few shophouses away.

I had always thought that Chef Icon was just a bakery selling takeaway items, but today I found out that it has a seat-in section as well. Behind the counter, there is a recessed room with a few cafe tables and chairs. We were the only customers just after lunch so we had the entire room to ourselves which was very pleasant. I loved the small cafe area because it was just so snug and cosy.

We ordered a cafe latte as well as an iced-chocolate. The prices are really reasonable. The cafe latte was only $3.50 while the iced-chocolate was only $4. The iced-chocolate was made using real chocolate flakes and not the usual sugar laden chocolate syrup.

Chef Icon also has a lot of cakes on offer, best viewed at the Chef Icon’s website. The Chocolate Travona cake with its glistening exterior looked absolutely decadent and sinful. Too bad they didn’t have slices on offer or I would have surely ordered one.
