Dann’s Daily Pescetarian Cafe Revisited

Dann’s Daily has added new stuff to their menu, yippee!!!!!

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - New Menu

There’s quite a few interesting things on the menu like the Eggs & Toasts, Fish & Mushroom Cheese Wholewheat Tortilla Wrap and the Mushroom Beet Burger to name a few. The Chef’s mood of the day is due to become a permanent mood!

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - Whitefish mushroom cheese wholewheat wrap

When I spied the Fish & Mushroom Cheese Wholewheat Wrap $9 on the menu, I knew I just had to try it, even though I already had lunch! This was 4pm, so it’s snack time lah! It looked a little plain and very flat at 1st glance!

But when you prise it open, behold the goodies inside!!! Mmmmmm!!!!! LOVE the white fish and how it goes with the mushroom and cheese. It was oozy juicy goodness. It’s a great thing that Dann’s Daily likes to experiment with spices, cuz there’s more to seasoning than just salt! Since the tortilla was toasted to a crisp, it felt a little like eating fish and mushroom cheese pizza. Love it that it doesn’t taste like whole wheat at all!

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - Fish Mushroom Cheese Toastie

Another of my all time favourites, the toastie. The filling is exactly the same as the wrap, but panini bread is used instead. This is slightly less messy to eat, but equally fantastic in taste. Also slightly cheaper at $5. It’s for the toasties and latte that we keep coming back!

Closer look at the oozy goodness. Seriously good stuff, and it’s HEALTHY!!!!

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - Cafe Latte

Xing of Dann’s Daily told us that they have changed their coffee beans to one that gives off a slightly less acidic and more chocolatey flavour. Didn’t manage to get a picture of the one we had on Sunday but here’s a picture of the latte I had some months back. If you want to know where to find the best latte in eastern Singapore (Bedok, Siglap, Tampines, Marine Parade), you won’t go wrong with Dann’s Daily. I assure you, I’m not paid for making this statement.

Dann’s Daily Pescetarian Cafe – Revisited!

Today marks my 4th visit to Dann’s Daily. Although I have a policy of not visiting the same place too often (so that I have more stuff to blog about), we really like going to Dann’s for their excellent coffee. If you’re living in the East, this is probably the only place nearby to get a good cuppa without having to go all the way into town. And of course, my parents in particular love it at Dann’s for the healthy fare.

They are always having daily specials, and one of today’s specials was the Durian Steamed Cupcake going at $7!

Dann's Daily - Durian Steamed Cupcake

This is the 1st time I was trying their steamed cupcake. To be frank, I was rather apprehensive about the “steamed” part as I am so used to baked cakes. The texture of the muffin turned out to be pretty okay and a little heavier than the usual cup cakes. The lady boss told us that the muffin is choc full of durian puree! But in my opinion, the thing that took the cake was the durian cream piled on top of the cup cake. It was SO GOOOOD. It had just the right amount of sweetness, it was light and fluffy and tasted like fresh durian. I mean it’s basically fresh durian puree with zero sugar added. Even the cupcake part has very little raw sugar used. So simple yet so good when the real stuff is used! If I go to Dann’s again I’m going to ask for more of the Durian cream!!

Dann's Daily - Vegetarian Curry with Wild Rice (2)

Dann's Daily - Vegetarian Curry with Wild Rice

Curry of the Day with Organic Brown & Wild Rice $10 – This is a vegetarian curry, comprising of tau pok, tau fu, tau kee etc. You know how the usual types of curry makes you feel like you’ve sinned after having a big bowl? This curry doesn’t give you that feeling. It’s light and refreshing and still packs a punch despite it having almost no “bad” ingredients. A well balanced curry that had just the right combination of ingredients. I dipped my sandwiches in them and it was good! All the ingredients are in the right proportion.

Dann's Daily - Wild Rice (3)

Closer look of the Wild Rice, which you can also order on its own for $6. I like brown rice so I’ve no problems eating this, but I guess it would take some getting used to for those who are accustomed to white rice.

BTW, I recall a time when I was younger and I loathed brown rice. We got that rice from NTUC and it’s almost reddish in colour. I suspect a lot of Singaporeans developed a dislike for brown rice after eating that brand of rice. Try switching to different types of brown rice and you may actually find yourself developing a taste for it!

Dann's Daily - Wholewheat seafood pasta in creamy sauce

Prawns Creamy Whole wheat Pasta $12.50 – Ok while I like brown rice, I realise I don’t much fancy whole wheat pasta. Find the pasta to be stiff and rough and a little unwieldy on the fork. They just refused to twirl! Maybe Penne instead of Spaghetti would be better. The prawns were quite good, had a nice crunch to them. Cream sauce was okay, would have preferred it to be slightly heavier to cover the roughness of the whole wheat pasta. On the whole, a very healthy pasta dish.

Dann's Daily - Wild Rice with Fish and Veggies

Dann’s Daily Special Fish with Wild Rice – I love the fish that Dann’s daily serves, be it with their rice or in their toasties. The fish is always so flaky and flavoursome. You know how fussy I am with fish. 

Dann's Daily - Fish Soup

Fish soup $8 – Fish tasted fresh and was accompanied by a rich yet light broth. Comfort food for a dark and dreary day.

Dann's Daily - Prawn and Avocado Toastie

White Fish, mushroom and cheese toastie $5 – Very nice, fish was once again very tasty. Mushrooms used were shitake I believe. I could have done with more cheese, as I just love overloading my sandwiches with cheese. I thought I would still be hungry after having this for lunch, but surprisingly I was rather full after this.

Dann's Daily - Kaya Toastie (2) Dann's Daily - Chocolate Toastie

Kaya Toastie $4 and Chocolate Toastie $4 – Kaya was quite ordinary. As for the chocolate toastie, I was already expecting something along the lines of Nutella. And everyone knows how sweet Nutella is, so I was fairly disappointed. Being the sweet tooth that I am, I wouldn’t order this again but I guess this would appeal to people who like chocolate for the chocolate taste and not the sugary sweetness oops… Also, considering that the toasties with savoury fillings cost only $1 more, I’d rather order those instead.

Dann's Daily - Alkaline Water

KYK Alkaline Water – This alkaline water is used in the dishes as well as for you to drink when you’re there. I don’t know much about alkaline water but these days the health experts all seem to be talking about it.

Dann’s Daily Pescetarian Cafe

Read about the existence of Dann’s Daily Pescetarian Cafe from Foodoshoot. I thought I had my tabs on all the cafes in the East, but Dann’s Daily managed to escape my notice! Nevertheless, I was really happy that I have a new cafe to patronise, especially if it is a good one.

Dann’s Daily Pescetarian Cafe, as the name suggests, does not serve meat but serves seafood. This suits me fine because my father is kind of like a pescetarian as well, so I have grown used to the idea. What I don’t think I’ll ever get used to is a diet of no egg and dairy. We went to Dann’s Daily on a Saturday Afternoon with the intention of just trying out their coffee. After scrutinising the menu, we got greedy and also ordered the toasties sandwiches. There’s quite a variety ranging from Salmon, Otah Japanese Cucumber, Prawns Avocado, Mackerel Mushroom Cheese and even Chocolate and Kaya, all costing $4-5 so it was pretty affordable. They also have some meal dishes such as Fish Soup (which I hear is so good it can wake up the dead), Curry Pasta, Prawn Pasta etc.

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - Cafe Latte

I found their name card and placed it on the coffee cup. Don’t be mistaken, this is not a sponsored advertorial (even though I wish it were!) Quite like this photo actually. Photos look the best when the lighting’s good, so I always love a bright and cheery looking cafe! The coffee itself was very good. Strong and with a nice flavour. Pretty much in the same league as the “Coffee Boys”40Hands, Papa Palheta, The Plain, Loysel’s Toy, Chef Icon.

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - Hot Chocolate - Toasties of the Day (Salmon and Cheese) (2)

Salmon Toasties - The colour of the salmon may seem pale, but don’t be fooled by the looks. This salmon was so fresh and flaky, we polished off the sandwich in a few seconds. As a mark of it’s freshness, this toastie is not available everyday, but only when fresh salmon is available. I love how simple food tastes so good. Notice the bread is whole wheat.

Dann's Pescetarian Cafe - Prawns Avocado Triangle Toasties

Prawns Avocado - Not as tasty as the salmon toasties, no oozy cheese here, but still quite good. Taste requires some getting used to, especially since the avocado slices are hard! i was expecting the mushy kind that is normally used for sandwiches. Nevertheless, the firm avocado slices lent a healthy flavour to the sandwich.
