Everton Park housing estate is slowing turning into a little charm by itself with small boutique cafe opening up one after another at the public housing void deck. One such entry into the cafe scene is The Provision Shop by hotelier Loh Lik Peng and Cocotte's chef Anthony Yeoh.
The Latte ($5) is served in a nostalgic glass cup as if one is having a cup of kopi at the local coffeeshop.
I have to say the latte art is really quite beautiful. However I did not enjoy my latte. I found the coffee too acidic to my liking.
Chocolate Croissant 3/5
As I was quite fun from my lunch, I did not try their hot food. Instead I ordered a Chocolate Croissant ($3.50). It was delightful to discover the wonderful flavour of chocolate with each bite of the croissant. Although the croissant is buttery, it did not have the flakiness I was looking for.
Frankly speaking I am not sure what is the hype about The Provision Shop. I like the fact that the cafe added some color to the old Everton Park estate but I was not impressed with the coffee and croissant I had. I reserved my view of the cafe as I have not tried most of the item on their menu. However noticing that they have a small kitchen and using chef microwave most of the time, I hope they can prove me wrong in my next wish.
