Hi to all people who love food like me!! This blog is basically for me to post photos of the food that I enjoy and also, to discuss good food with fellow foodies. I am no food critic and I believe that taste of the food can be quite subjective. I have also decided to add in my travel blog and some bits and pieces of my life here. If you have the time, do drop by and feel free to browse around! Cheers! =P

Symmetry @ Jalan Kudor
I had initiated a dinner meet-up session with my friends Pauline and Sam before my holiday trip. Sam had been to Symmetry Cafe before for their lunch and she was full of praise for it. Thus, we decided to try out their dinner menu this time round. Do note that for dinner, waffle is not in the menu. Also, you can make reservation online from their website. :)
I met up with Sam at Bugis MRT and we took an approximate 10-minutes walk to the cafe. We passed by this huge art mural of a Giant Girl with a Lion Cub (Along Jalan Pisang), drawn by Penang-based famous Street Art Artist Ernest Zacharevic. I had seen many of his works when I went Penang for holiday during March this year and I like them a lot. They have brought so much life to the streets.
Seems that the Giant Girl is looking at you...
Entrance of the cafe. I nearly missed the door as the entrance was so small. Just push the Red door handle to enter, not the yellow one.
These two characters from "The Nightmare before Christmas" were seated at the entrance to greet you. Creepy?
Symmetry – A Taste of the Good Life.
Pauline had reached the place earlier than us and by the time we reached, a glass of grapes (Complimentary) was already served on our table.
Sam ordered a cup of Hot Chocolate and Marshmallow ($6.50) and she asked whether they can do Choco Art on her drink. Got a positive answer and her cup of hot chocolate was served with a Bunny Art on top and marshmallow by the sides on the saucer.
Not too adventurous with my drinks, I ordered Sakura Flower Tea ($8). A bit regret! Should have ordered coffee instead.
Pauline ordered "Symmetric" ($22) which contains vodka.
We ordered two starters to share:
Wakame Prawn Popcorn with Wasabi Remoulade ($17)
These "oversized" popcorns were very addictive and went well with the wasabi mayo sauce.
Asparagus and Bacon Sticks with a poached egg on top. ($20)
The asparagus and bacon were wrapped and deep-fried in "popiah skin". Quite tasty but a bit high on the sodium side.
Both Pauline and myself ordered the Symmetry Hamburger ($29) and we were both pleased with the burgers.
The burger contains beef cheek (Very tender!), chorizo (Didn't notice its existence), foie gras (Yummy!), lettuce, beetroot and caramelized onions. The dish was served with rocket leaves and truffle fries.
Sam ordered Baby Barramundi (Asian Seabass) $38. As the staff took our order, he said the fish was quite big and it was meant to be shared by two. Haha... He had underestimated Sam. Despite the "warning", Sam went ahead with the order and she could almost finish the whole fish on her own!
We spotted a beautiful cat outside the restaurant as we left and we spent some time playing with it. I guess it belongs to Symmetry. It has its own instagram account at @symmetrykitty.
