Aoyama Cafe is a casual Euro-Japanese style cafe located inside Aberdeen Mall. This cafe serves coffee, desserts, sandwiches, and Euro-Japanese fusion food like curries and pastas. It has an open, inviting atmosphere because of its clear windows/doors and warm interior colors.
P.S. This blog post is about the dining experience I had back in 2010, but the pictures of the store front and display are from 2011.
Hamburg Hayashi-Curry Rice
The presentation of the dish was nice, however, the hamburger steak was overcooked. Compared to the hamburger steak I’ve had at Cafe de l’Orangerie and Shibuya Nuts, this was nowhere as moist and tasty. Aside from the hamburger steak, the curry and rice were satisfactory.
The served portion was actually small, especially when it was placed in the middle of a very large plate. I tasted the shrimps and found that they were not very fresh. The rice tasted quite stale as well.
Banana French Toast – golden french toast cubes topped with whipped cream, chocolate and bananas
I really liked this dessert! The toast cubes were fresh, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I enjoyed the moist egg-soaked bread in the centre of the toast cubes. Despite the (semi-sweet) chocolate sauce and whipped cream, it was not overly sweet. The dish had great presentation and it looked really appetizing.
- the banana french toast was really good, and different
- the specials appear very budget-friendly. I might come back next time if I come by Aberdeen
- nice interior design
- the food looked better than it tasted
- the service was not good (long wait)
