My Awesome Café is nested along one of the hippest food streets of Singapore… Telok Ayer. I decided to check this out based on a recommendation from a colleague.
At the onset, I found this place difficult to find. For one, from the outside, it did not look like a café. Second, the signboard said, “CHUNG HWA FREE CLINIC”. And third, I’m just really bad with directions *face palm*
The café has an open air concept and a really funky vibe. I completely forgot how gloomy the weather outside was thanks to the place’s bright-colored lanterns and quirky ornaments.
For lunch, I got their signature dish and drink, My Awesome Sandwich (SGD 17.5) and Awesome Bulb (SGD 9.5 / 6).
My Awesome Sandwich is basically four (4) sets of open sandwiches – herb chicken breast, smoked salmon, ham, and prosciutto all on toasted brie – served with a side of arugula salad.
This dish had perfect balance. Meat was savory and tender, the brie was light and crunchy, and the ~freshness of the arugula salad complemented the savoriness of the sandwiches really well.
Awesome Bulb, on the other hand, is coconut water with organic goji berries, chia seeds, and some coconut meat. You can have it in a normal glass (SGD 6) or in their light bulb glass (SGD 9.5), very cute.
The drink is refreshing but definitely overpriced haha! They do have a variety of other drinks though such as coffee and wine.
Overall, My Awesome Café is a really cool place with a unique concept and good food, certainly a must try!
