The bread talk group has recently launched its latest concept and added a new bistro at the newly refurnished Capitol Piazza to the cafe scene - 1933. Serving a wide range of asian food, this classy looking place warps diners back to the days of 1933.
Was invited to a tasting and here's what we got:
1933 Power Carrot (4hands) $9.60
A French bread bowl - the bread was crunchy and absorbs the soup well. A hint of orange zest in the thick broth of carrots.We loved every mouthful.
Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice (2Hands) $16.80
Chicken was tender but as a whole, the dish lacked that flavourful kick. At almost $20 for this, your expectation of our favourite local dishes will likely soar to the roof. Unfortunately, it left us wanting.
Nanyang Curry Chicken (3Hands) $14.90
Generous serving of ingredients and the curry tasted pretty good. Similar bread bowl being used and we completely wiped out the dish. The bread was the highlight.
Grill Pork Loin (2Hands) S$28.90
A dish that's hard to perfect, and sure enough it wasn't up to mark. Grilled in thyme, bay leaves, honey and brine of the rack, the pork on the table somehow lacked in flavour. They offer you a choice of hainanese, black pepper or mushroom sauce. I'd go for the black pepper any day.
1933 Speciality Coffee (4hands)
Coffee was to our liking and much better than most bistros. You even have a latte art of their name if you're lucky.
Sinful but good. A mix of coconut, chiffon and cream.
overall review: shauneeie3hands. A good place for tea, coffee and a perfect way to catch up with friends in my opinion. Classy setting bringing you back to the days of your grandparents. The bread bowls are worth a try but the mains disappointed. More really needs to be done.
