Curious Palatte | Imaginative, Quirky Food, Excellent Coffee

With a dish cheekily named ‘Magic Mushrooms’ on their menu, one might expect that the establishment that came up with it would not be a stuffy one.

And stuffy Curious Palatte is certainly not, as the bright and airy space with its high ceilings, funky light bulbs and quirky plastic chairs instantly give off a hip and artistic vibe upon entry.

Drinking Magic
Enjoying a sip of my magic coffee

Their coffee is ‘magic’ too – literally, as that was the name of their signature brew. Magic (S$5.50) was touted as their version of a perfect proportion of a double ristretto and milk, and in my opinion, it was pretty magical.

I also liked the Iced Coffee (S$7.90) which came with vanilla ice cream. It was sinful, satisfying and not too sweet.

Over my two visits, I tried both the regular Truffle Fries (S$12.90) and the Truffle Sweet Potato Fries (S$12.90).

Truffle Fries
Truffle fries – the parmesan snow was a bit too light for me

My thoughts on both – not bad but not great either, as the truffle taste is a bit faint and the fries are a bit confusing, neither thick nor thin cut.

The truffle mayo is sufficiently creamy and decadent though. Serving size is actually rather decent too.

I really liked the Sous Vide Salmon (S$18.90) though, as the various ingredients on the plate really came together for me.

The oozing egg, creamy avocado, umami halloumi and zesty citrus sauce were a great complement to the fish. I just wished that the salmon was a bit more pink inside and that there was more of that delicious halloumi cheese…

A tasty yet healthy tasting dish, thumbs up

The Scotch Egg (S$17.50) with corned beef hash was rather enjoyable too. The egg was beautifully runny and tasted yummy with the savoury hash and crunchy shell.

Would you just look at that gorgeously done egg

The pea and tomato salad was a bit on the dry side, but I guess if it were too wet the fried coating of the egg might get soggy.

Me with Waffle
Looking pleased with our pretty buttermilk waffle

Being by the same people who brought us Strangers’ Reunion, it is no surprise that a variety of Buttermilk Waffles took up half a page on the menu.

I tried one with vanilla ice cream and fresh fruits (S$12.50) and was pretty happy with it. Not quite the type I like but still good. Crispy on the outside and moist, soft inside.

Not too crowded on a weekday afternoon but was packed on the weekend

Curious Palatte has an interesting variety of delicious sounding dishes and a great environment to chill at.

I do find it slightly on the pricier side though so while I will likely return, perhaps not so often!
