LeBan HK Cafe is the new kid on the block at Jalan Leban along Upper Thomson Road. The 1 month old cafe serves a wide range of Hong Kong inspired food.
LeBan HK Cafe has a youthful ambience with its contempoary colorful interior with walls painted in purple and white, red chairs and black tables. Even the lightings are in rainbow colours.
Chili Cheese Fries 3.5/5
The Chili Cheese Fries ($6.50) is topped with Chef's special chili and oven baked. I was confused as I did not taste any spiciness. The dish is a bit old school in my own opinion. I would prefer the cheese to be more liquid or even lava form.
Seafood Baked Rice in Cream Sauce 3.5/5
The Seafood Baked Rice in Cream Sauce ($9.80) came with fresh and big succulent seafood such as prawn, squid and mussel hidden inside a bed of baked cheese. It comes in either cream or tomato sauce. I felt that the dish did not have a body to gel all the wonderful flavours together.
Crispy Butter Bun with Condensed Milk 4.5/5
The Crispy Butter Bun with Condensed Milk ($4) brough back my childhood memories. I love having my bread with condensed milk. The toasted buns with the condensed milk spread was simple, sinful but yummy!
Savoury French Toast Bites with Ice Cream 4.5/5
I will definitely return for the Savoury French Toast Bites with Ice cream ($4.90). The deep fried breaded cubes comes with a scoop of New Zealand Natural ice cream. They are a total of 7 flavours to choose from currently. Bite into the breaded cubes and there is a little surprise. The french toast had peanut butter in it! LeBan definitely knows my weakness...we have condensed milk and now peanut butter.
Sizzling Crispy Noodles with Jumbo Prawns 3.5/5
I applauded the concept but not the dish. The noodles of the Sizzling Crispy Noodles with Jumbo Prawns ($8.50) had an unique crisp and crunchy texture. It reminded me of Mamee Monster Noodle Snack. The sauce which tasted like sweet and sour sauce was too sweet and overpowering.
Potato with Corned Beef Hash & Egg 3.5/5
When the Potato with Corned Beef Hash & Egg ($5.50) was served, I thought it was carrot cake with scrambled egg. Corned beef is salt-cured product hence the dish was a tad salty. An enjoyable dish but nothing fancy about it.
Sun Fried Ice Cream 4.2/5
Sun Fried Ice Cream with Green Tea flavour 4.2/5
The huge ball shaped Sun Fried Ice Cream ($4) is a must try. The ice cream is breaded, deep fried and topped with chocolate rice. Good quality New Zealand Natural ice cream is used with a choice of flavours. The hot and cold combination will leave your taste buds delighted.
Being a coffee addict and ice cream lover, the Affagoto ($4.80) is the mix from heaven that satisfied my weakness for them. A scoop of vanilla ice cream was dropped into a shot of freshly brew espresso. The coffee and the ice cream combination was so good that I selfishly finished the glass all by myself.
