But while the idea of having 12 cafes in one place was great, there was backlash when the organisers were not able to follow through on their premise of making it an exclusive event for the ticket buyers. I mean, that was the reason why we had to pay 25 bucks, right?
They were unable to secure the perimeters, so everyone could come in and buy stuff from the cafes, resulting in angry ticket holders threatening to sue them using the lemon law. So the organisers appeased them by refunding 20 bucks in kind... cafe vouchers from their choice of cafe from the list of participants.
We chose I am cafe, so after we got the vouchers via mail, Arlyn, Armar and I made our way to Haji Lane, near Bugis MRT. We were surprised to find that the cafe was the first on the street and even had tables on the street itself. I suppose there is something about that that is cute in the sense that it is unusual, but on that more humid than usual night, the idea of eating outdoors did not exactly appeal to us. There was a short wait before we were ushered to our outdoor table.
We were all just excited to try their rainbow crepe, but of course we couldn't just jump to dessert without having dinner, so we ordered some savoury dishes too.
But first, drinks!
|ICED MINT CHOCOLATE ($6) & ICED MINT MOCHA ($6.50)|
Like I said, it was a humid night, and after our long walk from the MRT, we were craving for refreshing drinks. These really hit the spot. I would highly recommend.
|FRIES & MAYO ($6.90)|
Signature crispy thick-cut fries served with mayonnaise
I loved the presentation of these fries. They tasted great, too. But Armar's issue with it was that the mayo should probably have been served on a separate plate because it didn't quite reach the fries below.
|BATTERED SQUID RINGS ($7.90)|
8 pcs of battered squid rings, deep fried and served with mayonnaise
|CHICKEN HAM PASTA ($13.90)|
Choice of lussory red tomato sauce or lussory white sauce or aglio olio (we chose red)
|SAUSAGE LOVE PIZZA ($13.90)|
Chicken sausage, mozzarella cheese and house-special pizza sauce
Then it was finally time for dessert. We were surprised that it wasn't on the menu, because that's what the place is famous for. Turns out their desserts are on display on a counter indoors. They look so appetising, no?
We were so happy to find that the rainbow crepe was available.
|RAINBOW CREPE WITH CHOCOLATE SAUCE|
I can't remember how much this is because it's not on their menu. I loved this so much. Arlyn liked it too but Armar not so much, because it tastes like chocolate, which he is not a huge fan of, and I am.
So since he didn't like the dessert, I suggested getting another one. Arlyn had been eyeing the red velvet cake right from the start, so we ordered a slice of that.

I would recommend their rainbow cake, which we didn't eat that night because we had already tasted it on my birthday. I loved its cream cheese frosting and it looks very photogenic too. Teehee. Here is a pic of it:
After we paid our bill and left, I enjoyed walking around Haji Lane and seeing pretty sights like these:
