Polo Pau Cravings

Dunno why after music class last sunday morning, youngest sis has a craving for polo bun at Oldtown White Coffee in SS15. Since she offered to pay, I offered my tummy. The Oldtown White Coffee is situated in the same row as Taylor's Business School.

The interior is simple with backwall portraying the old shophouses scenes and also dark furnitures to match the overall coffee concept. Having a look at the menu has already made your tummy start growling and your head start spinning because they really have a wide variety of toasts, dishes and beverage. My sis knew what she wanted - Ice Fire Polo Pau but I was undecided. i was thinking about choosing between the normal bread and kaya toast or the thick kaya toast. In the end sis ordered both! Good, no choices to make and no headache. She ordered a Xi Mut tea and me a cup of Enrich hot chocolate. I wonder why do they called it Enrich?!! Something to do with the act of making the chocolate drink rich by adding more chocolate? I'm still curious but was not bothered to ask.

The Verdict:

I don't like it.

Seriously, honestly and IMHO I think the food here needs improvement in terms of taste. Having been to so many kopitiams and "kopitiams look alike" I would have to say that this is just another franchise with concept but not the taste that I look for when it comes to authentic kopitiam food. The toast was not hot, butter too little and the food presentation is not up to my expectations.

With so many kopitiams mushrooming in the city, why not they copy from the best? A drive down to Kluang town is not too big a deal isn't it? Or send the worker to work at the best kopitiam to steal a trade or two?

The Toast

The Hot Chocolate and Xi Mut Tea

The Thick Toast

The Ice Fire Polo Bun

My ratings for Oldtown White Coffee will be 2 ** . Still running behind Kluang Station.

The two of us ate all this!

Accidentally dropped one piece!

Me having some fun with the toast that I tried to bite it into a heart shape.
