The Daily Roundup Cafe - Salted Caramel Sweet Crepes & Amazonian Acai Bowl @ Keong Saik Road [Chinatown, Singapore]

Aimless - the exact word to reflect the sentiment as we didn't have any specific place in mind to chill out after a hearty yet expensive nasi lemak lunch at Chinatown. That's when google map came into play and we managed to identify an interesting cafe that's within walking distance.

The Daily Roundup - an interesting name that means a gathering of people. As there were just two of us, a roundup may not be an appropriate description but i honestly didn't care; i just wanted crepes for desserts!

Upon stepping in, i sense that this would be a good place to relax and have a good chat with friends; the cafe was bright and i can see quite a number of people chilling out on their own with a laptop or a book. If i ever get a laptop, i think this would be the perfect (and peaceful) place for me to generate postings for this blog.

Aside from the usual hot and cold beverages from a cafe (menu to be included later in this post), there were also options for French ciders, beer, wine, cold brew coffee, spritzers. Being a cheapo who prefers to spend on food, i am glad to announce that plain yet complimentary iced water was provided beside the counter.

Salted Caramel Sweet Crepe - with seven types to choose from, the undecided me would simply ask the staff for a recommendation and it came up to be either salted caramel or hazelnut. I chose the former and topped up with a scoop of yummy vanilla bean ice cream!

I have never quite enjoyed crepes and preferred waffles over them. Would the one from The Daily Roundup change my opinion as it's supposedly "made with premium wheat flour and infused with artisanal butter by Jean-Yves Bordier"? Not too sure who this Jean-Yves Bourdier was but just the sound of it seemed to elevate the class by a huge jump.

Love it despite the lack of crispiness along the edges (not supposed to be the case anyway). It was buttery (must be the work of that Jean-Yves Bordier) with a rich, addictive flavour that was enhanced by the sprinklers of sugar and salted caramel. Simple, delicious and not heavy on the stomach!

Amazonian Acai Bowl - with fruits on top, i was thinking i might as well make this bowl myself at home! However, buried underneath was the strangely appetizing acai blend; it was an acquired taste and even though i would not consider it not my cup of tea, i believe it has the magic to clean the bowels eight hours later.
