Blue Mist Cafe @ Amara Hotel
Snug in a corner of Amara Hotel lies Blue Mist Cafe, bustling with business over lunch and after work. Lunch specials start from $12.90. Drinks are available all day long, occasionally spotting foreigners sipping beer over lunch!
My second visit at Blue Mist for a pal's birthday, my treat! Made my reservations on the day itself, reservations are a must...gets too crowded sometimes and queues start snaking.
Both of us had the lunch special; Fish and Chips with garlic bread, pumpkin soup and coffee or tea. Juices went for a dollar less than their original prices with every set lunch ordered. Garlic bread was served after an eternity of a lifetime, 4 large slices! Deliciously crunchy. Pity they used to have freeflow of garlic bread and now, it's scrapped. :(
The pumpkin soup was somewhat too thick.
The fish and chips came after quite a while...the fish portions are downsized. Fried lightly in crunchy breaded crumbs, thick wedges of french fries with a huge dollop of coleslaw. The fish was light, not overly oily. French fries were salted but tasted really good with mayonnaise. The coleslaw was just alright.
At $12.90++ each, it's quite a deal! Service is, painfully slow and somewhat lacking at times. Not a good place to catch up with friends because of the queues -- adds stress to lunch!
Too full for dessert, however.
