Toothsome, a modern cafe along Tanjong Katong Road, is a place to visit for an interesting fusion of Asian-Western meals or if you are looking for a cool and quiet environment for a tea break around the Joo Chiat estate.
This cafe houses their own confectionary equipment to make sure that their cakes, breads and pastries are freshly churned out in-house. You may want to try their variety of home-style cakes personally created by the owner, Roger Tay and his wife. Biting into them will remind you of the cakes sold at heartland bakeries during my childhood times but with a creative twist in flavour and presentation. As the cakes come in relatively smaller portions than the usual cafes, it is great value for those looking for simple bite-sized desserts after a meal or for tea.
Their hefty investment in the automated coffee machine serves you great tasting coffee tuned at the right temperatures and pressure for a delightful coffee experience. For the adventurous, there's Laksa Spaghetti on the menu that you may want to try!
I tried their coffee sponge, the chocolate teacake and lemon mousse. Coffee Sponge @ $2.50 had a light and fluffy texture with a well-balanced combination of cream and sugar. The coffee cream taste was subtle. The Chocolate Teacake ($2.50) was made of light fluffy chocolate sponge with fresh chocolate cream. It was a light chocolate cake without the richness of the mousse-typed cake but I felt that it could do with less cream decoration on the top. The lemon mousse cake was mildly tangy and refreshing. It had a moderate amount of lemon taste.
