McCafe delights

Mrs Eio is not promoting Mac Donald’s here but she has to blog about her pleasant encounters with a McCafe staff at the Mac Donald’s outlet located at Tampines St 32. 

During one of Mrs Eio’s recent visit to this mac outlet, she ordered a take-away latte (in case she can’t finish the coffee as she’s in a rush) & a “have it here” muffin. The outlet wasn’t crowded. Hence, this barista asked Mrs Eio to take a seat & offered to serve the Latte & muffin right to her table! That’s very nice of her… When Mrs Eio “received” her Latte & muffin, these were what she had gotten. 

   Ain’t these lovely. Mrs Eio don’t think many baristas will bother to “decorate” the Latte for take-away. But this barista makes an effort to do so. Look at the cream beside the muffin!

   
Mrs Eio was back to this outlet again few days later. She ordered a Latte & muffin again but this time she’s “having them here”. 

   
Nice Latte Art. The barista even decorated the plate for serving muffin. Well done! 

    
This is the barista that Mrs Eio is referring to (see photo below). A Lovely lady who takes pride in her job & Mrs Eio could see that she’s willing to go the extra miles to serve the customer. 

 
The latte tasted pretty good even though Mrs Eio asked for low fat milk. It’s less creamy, lighter in terms of its body but definitely good enough to perk up Mrs Eio’s day. 

It’s a delight to have such an encounter at a neighborhood Mac Donald’s cafe outlet.

Finally, Mrs Eio made it to  Chye Seng Huat Hardware. She noticed that many people in the cafe are taking photos. Let’s join the crowd!   
Mr Eio likes the Latte at CSHH as its not too acidic. But Mrs Eio finds it too milky & lacks “kick” for her. Nevertheless, everyone has different preference for their cuppa. 🙂

 
Barista at work! Make sure you don’t wait in vain while placing your order. There’s a queue for collecting your coffee orders & a separate queue for ordering your food. They are just next to each other so Mrs Eio went to the wrong queue while waiting to place her order at the cashier. 

  
 
Interesting concept. Rather crowded during lunch time. So Mrs Eio did not take as much photos as she would like to… She likes the window grilles. Lol. 

   
The Papa pork burger is interesting. Charcoal bun with pork patty served with wasabi chips. The patty is on the sweet side mainly due to the pineapple jam on top of it. 

 
Yes. They grill the burger bun! Mrs Eio thinks S$18 is consider expensive as the side dish is just chips (not fries or salad). 

   
Forest of Mushroom on toast is a letdown. It’s like having thick cream of mushroom on a simple toast. The poached egg white are rather tough in texture. S$15 for this dish. Mrs Eio will sure skip this if she ever visit CSHH again. 

   
EL enjoyed the chips though…

    
So much of the food… Mrs Eio went on to explore the second level. 

 
Apparently, part of the level 2 is used to conduct craft workshops & the Tyrwhitt General company sells leather & other items. You may visit their website to find out more about their craft workshop. 

Website: thegeneralco.sg

This company is not related to CSHH. 

   
 
This is where they conduct the craft workshop. Probably for 10-15 pax. You may sign up as individuals too. 

   

 Leather pouch – one can make this during the workshop. 

   
 
The C- platform is a coffee school under CSHH. 

 

All in all, do explore beyond level 1 to make your trip worthwhile. 🙂
