The Assembly Ground


This café-hopping fever goes on and on with new cafes opening every month.

This time round, I went to The Assembly Ground at The Cathay.

For those who are thinking of making reservations might want to take note that they only take in bookings for big groups. I assumed to be 6 pax or more because they rejected our reservation for 3-4 pax. But, they assured us that it is not difficult to get a seat during dinner hours on a weekday.

I ended work early and went there at around 6.45pm. True enough, I got a table immediately. I like the set up of the cafes partly because I am into industrial loft design. And you can see this industrial feel in my house which will be ready next month.

I was so so so hungry while waiting for my friends and I was so glad when they finally came!

The food choices are not a lot and I was quite disappointed that they did not have Portobello Mushroom Cheese Sandwich or any other sandwich except for the Roast Beef Melt Sandwich on that day. And, I DON’T EAT BEEF….sobs sobs.

In the end, I settled with Eggs Benji ($16) which is poached eggs with honey baked ham with hollandaise. Clare ordered Rosti Omelette ($14.50) and Hui ordered Scrambled Eggs ($12) with smoked salmon and we ordered Truffle Mushroom Soup ($9.50) to share!

The mains are not one of the best that I’ve eaten but it is not bad though I hope they will give a bigger portion. I don’t fancy their truffle mushroom soup as it is kinda foamy.

And what’s a meal without desserts? I am not a desserts person until recently. Don’t know why but I will suddenly crave for something sweet especially when I am stressed or loaded with too much work. No wonder people say ‘STRESS is DESSERTS spelt backwards’ lol

We tried Earl Grey Lemon Pound Cake and Thai Milk Tea Pound Cake. I can’t decide which I like better but I find that a little too sweet for my liking but I like the moist and dense texture of the pound cake.

All in all, I like the décor and cosy feel of the café and I will be back again to try their Portobello Mushroom Cheese Sandwich and Green Tea Latte.
