14th Coffee 拾肆室 has been taking social media channels by storm despite of its rather hidden location. The place is a residential-terrace turned cafe, with modern, chic and minimalist design. The place can be found behind AEON Mall at Alma; the exterior does not suggest much, especially to a cafe and the best part is, the entrance to the cafe is at the side, not the front... making it extra hard for first timers to come by. Being a vegetarian cafe, the place offers a simple menu featuring some mains (not the usual-boring vegetarian fare) including but not limited to, Shepherd's Pie, Sandwiches, Noodles and Souffle Cheese Cake. Good quality of food despite wallet-friendly prices.
Cold Sesame Noodles (Rm 11)
Souffle Cheesecake (Rm 7.50)
Matcha Au Lait Ice Cube (Rm 11)
The Cold Sesame Noodles consisted of a mixture of julienned Cucumbers, Carrots, caramelized Vegetarian Ham and Enokitake Mushrooms... served over Sesame Salad dressing. The noodles were silky smooth rather than the al-dente type but the concoction was most refreshing and delicious. They did a nice twist to the Mushrooms by adding Sugar to caramelize them, introducing a tacky-crisp texture and sleek sweetness to the dish.
If you like your Cheese Cakes creamy and rich, you must try 14th Coffee's. The Cheese element was bold and the texture was satisfyingly creamy. It may be a little too heavy for one to finish entirely though. We washed it down with a serving of Matcha Au Lait Ice Cube... steamed frothy Milk poured over non-sweetened Matcha-infused Ice Cubes.
