Symmetry is another typical “hole in the wall” cafe that recently popped out, according to K’s theory. Indeed, it is inconspicuously located at Jalan Kubor. An easier way of locating the cafe is to tell your friends that it is just next to the prominent landmark – Santa Grand Hotel at Bugis.
The moment I stepped into the cafe, I thought it was a lil too dark for my liking. Unlike the name of the cafe, I couldn’t find anything that is symmetrical…hmmm…am I being dense to try associating the name with anything in the cafe? The crowd was mainly made up of youths (yes, I felt very out of place). A quick observation – the staff here are not only young, the girls are also in super tight shorts* (Have all the guy readers woken up at this juncture? Haha)
*when i posted this on my FB, my guy friends immediately became interested about the (err…) place
Back to the decoration, I was seated next to the window ledge and conveniently turned into a ‘photo whore’ 🙂
We ordered a scallop dish for starter and 2 main courses – steak and chicken. Frankly, I was very lost going thru’ the menu as the names of the dishes did not come out distinctly. Some of them have further descriptions and others, you just have to rely on your own imagination. To play safe, I ordered the chicken.
To our disappointment, we started with a WOW but that’s about it. The mains were not impressive. In fact, the chicken was a lil tough.
As one who seldom remembers price tags, this was one very memorable dinner for me. Friends whom I have shared this gastronomical experience with will hear the same from me – “1 starter, 2 mains, 2 drinks – $135!” AND “The food is not fantastic!”
That left me wondering what else could be the omph factor for the survival of this cafe. Maybe I shall ask my guy friends 🙂
