Vanilla Bar & Cafe is a cosy cafe which is quite different from the genre of eateries occupying the shophouses in Amoy/Telok Ayer area. The mains in this eateries are mostly Japanese food along with a small selection of Jap skewers.
We ordered the ribeye steak in wasabi shoyu dressing with sauteed potatoes from their special menu and a few finger food: baked mentaiko crab cakes, bacon & enoki skewers and shrimp gyoza.
The one dish that impressed me the most was the baked mentaiko crab cakes with its nice presentation and great creamy taste. The steak was also well-executed and filling.
Not forgetting the main reason for visiting them: Vanilla Dirt Cake disguised as a potted plant. While the dessert tasted pretty ordinary I think its the novelty factor that was the key draw.
Nonetheless overall this small eatery provides a relaxing and quaint environment to enjoy dinner in the CBD area.
