Food Review: Word. @ Upper Thomson Road

IMG_4441

Located behind the upcoming Springleaf MRT station of the Thomson-East Coast Line is a newly opened cafe called Word. It has an industrial, rustic theme going on.

Their menu focuses mainly on Asian fusion-ed with western cuisine, and quite punnily-named menu items as well.

Cut the Crab (S$15) which is their homemade crab cakes was nicely breaded and pretty salty on its own. The sauce tastes like a combination of a Thousand Island Dressing and a lemon vinaigrette. The pairing went perfectly with each other, toning down the saltiness from the crab cakes.

The Vongole Le Cream (S$14) was kind of bland and a tad bit more salt would have been nice. It has quite a large portion, pretty creamy and has a similar taste to a carbonara. However it lacks some sort of meat, so this dish is kinda pricey.

We also ordered the chix lollipop (S$14). The chicken was cooked perfectly. The meat comes off the bone nicely and was tender. It is quite an interesting fusion dish, using the Chinese stir-fry black pepper sauce over braised chicken. Overall very flavorful and tasty.

For dessert, we had the Churros Platter(S$12) which came with 3 different flavors: Original, Red Velvet and Pandan. The churros was quite dense but had a crunch to it. The Red Velvet did not have much difference in flavour compared to the original. The Pandan had quite a subtle taste which did not overpower the original taste of the churros. Their chocolate sauce was slightly too diluted, but the Gula Melaka sauce was pretty amazing.

Now their coffee.

The cappuccino(S$5) was woody, smooth and light. The flat white was pretty good as well since many cafes fail to pull off a good flat white. The latte tasted fluffy, light and smooth.
