January 17th, 2017. After a nice breakfast, we headed to Tanglin area. There’s a boutique cafe at Phoenix Park. Opened since February 2015, I just heard about this place from Gaby and Darius. At first I thought it offered buffet, but turned out that the name just a combination between BOUtique and caFE. Boufe.
Boufe Boutique Cafe is the brainchild of Erik Wang, Sean Lee and Dennis Lim. Boufe’s minimalistic design indoors is also centered around this theme – Sleek, clean and chic. The target group of Boufe Boutique Cafe would mainly be coffee-lovers, cafe hoppers, fashion enthusiasts.. basically anyone who can love and appreciate the good things in life. Keep your eyes peeled because we’re dreaming big!
Phoenix Park. Strategically located along Tanglin Road on the fringe of the Orchard Road Belt. This prime office in between Orchard MRT & Redhill MRT stations, is a historic site by the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Heritage Board with easy access to the Financial District. Enjoy the convenience of the location as well as the peaceful and conductive green environment.
Fell in love right after I saw the swing at the entrance of the place. Minimalist Black and White dominated the facade. Very instagenic. Too bad I didn’t have an instagenic shape. So I just saw Gaby took #OOTD photos there with evil eye hahahahahaha.. Just kidding! I’m a very nice person with nice smile and nice attitude. *diabolical smirk* LOL. Enough with my craziness. I stepped inside and wowed by the white interior there. It’s not too fancy but it’s very cute. There’s a spacious alfresco area at the backyard of Boufe. Ideal for small party if the weather is good.
Piccolo Latte $ 4.80
Salted Caramel Latte $ 5.50
Twilight $ 7.00
Boufe’s colour-changing drink (No artificial colouring). Contains mint, elderflower & lemon.
I wanted to try a different kind of drink. That’s why I ordered this Twilight. Well, actually, it’s just another beautiful drink. I kinda disappointed with the taste. I prefer it’s sweeter or stronger.
Boufe Cake $ 8.50
64% chocolate mousse, passion fruit mango cremeux, rum syrup-infused chocolate genoise base & crunchy hazelnut nougatine.
It won my heart after one bite. The combination of sweet from the chocolate and sour from the passion fruit mango cremeux were incredibly insane. The texture was unbelievable light and silky. Gaby loved it too, but Darius didn’t like it because too sour for him.
Greentea Montblanc $ 7.50
Chocolate almond tart, chocolate chantilly, crunchy pearl, green tea mousseline, chestnut in syrup.
Pretty decent. Never tried the real mont blanc. LOL. But this greentea montblanc was too not-special for me. No worry, it’s good, it’s good. But, I was hoping there’s a special aftertaste from this one. Need more green tea, I guess. For me, the best of this dessert was the chocolate almond tart. It’s crunchy yet velvety. *clapping hands*
Milky Way $ 8.50
White chocolate yoghurt mousse, honey genoise, chocolate sable, calamansi jelly.
Continuous as the stars that shine. And twinkle on the milky way. – William Wordsworth. First bite and the tanginess of calamansi jelly brings out the flavor. It had the most interesting looks with a galaxy glaze. Love at first sight! I believe that every single ladies will try this peculiar dessert. It’s too beautiful not too order. Give a delicious story to the galaxy.
I noticed that they have saviour dishes. But we’re too full to try those. So let’s make a time at another trip to be back.
