I’ve never heard of Cafe de l’Orangerie until I saw the ad on Klip magazine. Although the name sounds French, it is actually a cozy, authentic Japanese cafe owned by two Japanese chefs.
Hamburger steak with curry sauce ($10 or around that)
I missed hamburger steak because I used to eat it quite often at 我家牛排 (steakmyhome) when I lived in Taiwan. This hamburger steak was very tender, flavourful with the curry sauce. It was so delicious that I finished the whole plate! For only $10 I think it was a great meal. Hearts: 9.1/10
Dango / Black sesame parfait ($5.80)
I loooved this! I was deciding between the black sesame or the choclate banana flavour but I chose this because I know Japanese desserts with black sesame cannot go wrong. It was really delicious, smooth and sweet. There were layers of ice cream, whipped cream, black sesame sauce, cereal flakes, granola, mochi and crunchy straws. It was totally my kind of dessert! Layers of awesome goodness. I would totally come back for this. The only thing I wish is a wider glass so it’s easier to scoop the ingredients at the bottom. Hearts: 9.4/10
