We had:
Homemade Iced Lemon Tea - $5.50

Homemade iced lemon tea which really lived up to its name! Love how refreshing it was especially on the scorching Sunday I went.





Break Of Dawn - $22
(Pork bratwurst + Pork bacon + Cherry Tomatoes + Breakfast Potatoes + Scrambled Eggs with Chives + Mesclun salad with almond + Lemon Vinaigrette + Double Orange Salad + Sourdough)

This, my friends, is definitely one of the most scrumptious breakfasts I've had. I mean, it's comparable to the one from AnthesisThis, my friends, is definitely one of the most scrumptious breakfasts I've had. I mean, it's comparable to the one from Anthesis, just that it's not as expensive. Variety and portion wise, it was abundant and I was so stuffed by the time I managed to scrape it all off my plate. However, taste-wise, I have my doubts. The pork bacon was waaaaaaay too salty and the scrambled eggs were a little dry. Thumbs up to the pork bratwurst though!

Salmon Florentine - $20
(Norwegian smoked salmon + Sauteed baby spinach + Poached eggs + Homemade hollandaise sauce + Toasted brioche)

One of the top favorites! The eggs were perfectly poached while the hollandaise sauce was delicious with the perfect creaminess. Smoked salmon was great too. 

Paddle pop cake - $9

We were really intrigued by the looks of this cake and since we were craving for something sweet, we decided to go for this. The cakes at Maison Ikokku are sadly, not baked in-house. I really liked the cake batter though I couldn't taste much of the paddle pop flavoring. 


Service:
Service was rather slow that day, but okay it was pretty crowded when we went. Do make reservations before heading there because it can get really packed on weekends!

Atmosphere:
The cafe was rather small so it might feel a little claustrophobic if you're planning to go there in a big group. Other than that, I loved the vibe it exuded and it was perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I was supposed to post this post weeks back, but it has been sitting in my drafts since forever and I finally had time to edit it. I finally finished my midterms today (hehe my one and only) and presentation so I finally have time to take a little breather. 

Met my dear tako for lunch on a fateful Sunday and as usual, we spent our day lazing around and chilling indoors because the sun was a killer.




Till the next!
Toodles!
