Discovered this lovely little restaurant hidden along Boon Tat Street, a quiet find amidst daily CBD crowd.
True to it's name, you will notice there is a subtle vanilla scent as you enter the restaurant. It even has a small outdoor sitting area for about 5 to 10 people, which looks like a totally different place with it's lush greenery.
Food served is a fusion of local and japanese, which I find quite refreshing.
I ordered the Mini Burger sampler , which is two mini burgers , one with pulled pork, and the other with pork katsu. Love the slight spiciness of the pulled pork... and would definitely go for the "full" pulled pork burger the next time.
My colleagues ordered the beef japanese curry rice, grilled cod fish with baked potatoes and sausages with rosti.... they all tasted yummy! I cannot seem to find anything really wrong with them... Oh! and i forgot to mention their bacon wrapped enoki is juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I can down 5 of them at a go!
Two things you cannot miss at Vanilla would be their signature desserts: Chocolate Molten Cake with Vanilla Ice-Cream.... AND... Vanilla Dirt Cake!! Their vanilla dirt cake is created to look like a potted plant... and really is chilled vanilla cream topped with crushed oreo!!! The pictures below say a thousands word of how delectable these desserts tastes...so I shall elaborate further....and encourage everyone to take a trip down to Vanilla if you want somewhere different for a satisfying meal away from the maddening crowd...
