I finally have my weekends back, although it’s only this week that I can happily go out and recharge myself after a whole month of working every day. I still need to edit the photos of 2 weddings and a graduation shoot, though. But I did manage to steal some time off earlier today to catch up with a fellow Temasekian junior. The last time we met was 6 years ago, and I still remember him as the small cute little 13 year-old. He’s now taller than me. Sigh.
It all started when he instgrammed asking his followers if anyone would like to accompany him to Max Brenner. Me, being shameless and with no plans for the weekend (okay I lied I had my friends over last night), messaged him on Facebook and voila, Max Brenner here we come!
I knew what I wanted right from the start. I order the churros fondue after much hype over it all over social media. The churros were delicious and not too sweet, but I don’t recommend eating this as your lunch. We were there at 1pm, and it was quite empty, only to realise the crowd came in at 2pm, AFTER lunch. It kinda makes sense, just that we were two greedy idiots who wanted all the chocolate in the world for lunch.
He had the crepes (we debated on the actual pronunciation, and decided to pronounce it as craps, as in shit crap) which were divine. Caramel sauce was not too overpowering and the bananas and strawberries let you pretend you’re eating healthy.
Churros. Simply perfect.
Lesson learnt for my friend – put sugar in the macchiato.
Overall, the service was so-so (I had to keep asking for refills of iced water), but the ambience is cosy. Although try to come before the crowd comes in, which means eat chocolate for lunch.
