Vibe and atmosphere were cosy and comfortable, actually we’re hanging out there quite long.

We love the minimalist and modern interior design in this cafe with the natural sunlight comes inside from every spot.
We started off our food journey by having Cappuccino and Yuzu Lemonade.
The cappuccino was stunning, actually it’s one of the best coffee we’ve ever tasted around this neighbourhood.
The taste was balance and everything was perfectly executed.
It’s a top-notch and skilful baristas working behind the coffee machine led by head barista ‘Ki Yong Jung’ (well known barista in Korea).
The main dishes, We ordered:

The portion both protein and slaw were also generously served.

The overall taste was balance (sweet, savoury and sour) and it had rich flavours.
What a fantastic and healthy option to start off your day!
It’s a Korean-fried chicken burger with Asian slaw, Korean chilli mayo, cheddar on milk buns served with homemade potato crisps.
The chicken was perfectly deep fried and well seasoned. It was crispy from the outside, soft and tender from the inside.
The Asian slaw gave different texture and crunchiness when you bite the burger;
It’s a smart approach to differentiate from the typical classic burger.
Perfect choice of the high quality milk bun which kept integrity when pressed; The bun didn’t get soggy despite having massive sauce and mayo inside the burger.
This Asian Fusion Korean style burger definitely worked well and ticked all the boxes.
