Studying at SMU would mean that I have pretty much exhausted most, if not all the food places around the vicinity. But we’re lucky that relatively new establishments like Froth Cafe are around to offer our tastebuds a refreshing spin.. so (ironically) before school starts, we decided to head down to Froth to give it a try.
For those planning to hop by, Froth Cafe is located at the basement of BIG Hotel, a 10 minute walk away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT, just opposite Sunshine Plaza at Bencoolen Street- a cafe fairly accessible by foot.
As students with a budget, we are always on a hunt for a place that offers great value for the amount we fork out. I’m glad to say that Froth cafe offers just that- a cosy and dim-lighted ambience ideal for a lazy afternoon meal, plus a price tag that offers novel food at reasonable prices.
At Froth, we decided to give its lunch menu option a try, (at an affordable price of $9.90++), whereas the 2nd main was the Seafood Tom Yam Risotto that was much raved about on most food blogs.
This risotto was quite a mouthful! The east-west fusion is stark in this dish, every spoonful was evident in its aromatic spice, and the seafood fresh and well-cooked. The taste swings towards the heavy side, and can make for a hearty meal for one.
This was off the set lunch menu- a grilled chicken thigh with mash and vegetables served on the side. We reckon that the portion of this dish is worthy for its price. This was very savoury, and filling at the same time. I liked the sauce though, it did complement the mash well.
As part of Froth’s lunch set, you also have the option of topping up $3.00++ to $8.00++ for to complete your meal with either just a dessert or a soup and drink.
Pity that we had to give Froth’s Taro Waffles a miss…as both of us were feeling pretty stuffed after the 2 mains! Made our minds up that we’ll definitely be back soon for that though since it’s just 2 steps away from our school compounds.
