It’s a good thing that we ain’t hungry when we had our breakfast (yes, for the first time we were up so early that it’s still breakfast and not brunch!!) at Anthesis, a brand new café along the river at Robertson Quay. If we didn’t already had our first breakfast at home before this second one (we have healthy appetites haha), I’d be one really unhappy and hungry girl…
It’s a sign when even the water tin cups (imprinted with Anthesis logo, nice!) are smaller than my palms (I have small hands, by the way)…
When this came, we had a moment of silence. Then K’s candid “waaa I don’t know what I’m paying for. Décor and toilet?” made me burst out laughing. The serving was pathetic.. Maybe snacking portion? Pale scrambled eggs which needed a lot of black pepper, one slice of smoked salmon, two mini toast soldiers, and I don’t understand what are the cheapo crispy noodles doing there, weird.

I wish Anthesis can get their menu right. It’s a sandwich. It’s an open-faced sandwich. There’s a difference. Obviously my tuna tataki sandwich is the latter, when I was actually expecting the former. I’ve got nothing to fault on its taste, but to top up $2 for one thin slice of dark rye (which was delicious) because it’s supposedly “premium”? Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice? Won’t happen!
