Who says that the east is boring?! Situated right in between Eunos and Kembangan MRT, is Hei Kim Cafe. From the outside Hei Kim might look boring with its simple signage, but their food is definitely the opposite of boring and dull!
One main caught my curiosity the moment I read the menu. Its called Furikado $15. I asked the owner what exactly was it. The answer? ” Fusion of east meets west of avocado toast.” That totally piqued my interest and I ordered it right away! When it came, I was slightly weirded out by the presentation as I saw harajuku style eggs on top of my avocado toast but the flavour took me by surprise. As the eggs and furikake were on the saltier side, it perfectly balanced out the creamy avocado.
The other main I ordered was Avocado Pasta $11. When I saw that it is an Hei Kim original creation, I knew I had to get it! When it arrived, I was intrigued by the green sauce. There was also half of an avocado on top of my pasta! Talk about avocado overdose! If you find it too creamy, you can squeeze some lemon juice to cut through the creaminess!
When my pancake arrived, I was quite frightened by the bold red pancake but the owner assured me that they only used beetroot juice to make the pancake. By itself, the pancake is quite bland BUT the star is the of this dish is the unassuming avocado-gukkah. It was an unfamiliar flavour as it was salty, sour and yet creamy all at the same time. Turns out, they added yogurt to enhance the flavour! You must try this dish out to experience A WHOLE NEW WORLD~
Overall, Hei Kim is a pretty good cafe. It has all your basic Cafe needs like coffee, tea, cakes and mains. For the adventurous foodies, they have interesting dishes that can only be found at Hei Kim and it will be a place you don’t want to miss!
