A couple of weeks ago, Hammy and I were unable to meet up for a few days due to clashes in schedule. When we finally met, he was all cheerful and scarily happy, and feeling generous that he suggested eating at Bakerzin’s. Usually when we walk around in Northpoint, we wouldn’t think of going Bakerzin’s cuz it’s a little pricey. But with the lunch promotion – a main, soup and drink for $10.90 – it actually isn’t that harmful on the pockets!
Like a little girl who was rewarded with a good meal, I even suggested that perhaps I shouldn’t meet up with him for another few days and maybe we’d get to eat something good again! Haha I was just fooling.
I love the free-flow of bread at Bakerzin’s, you can choose to toast them manually at the toaster and have them crispy, or have them chewy without toasting. Accompanied by olive oil and balsamic vinegar, the bread was delightful, although I felt it went best with the pumpkin soup.
The set meal we ordered: Teriyaki Chicken, Pumpkin soup and Ice Tea ($10.90). It was our first date in Bakerzin’s and I’m not sure if this was the best dish to order, as the sushi rice was a little dry. But all I can say is it was very filling, for the both of us! Yes, we shared one set meal and felt so stuffed after that (must have been all that extra bread we had). The chicken was pretty sweet, but the pumpkin soup was REALLY GOOD.
Aha, then we decided to be a little adventurous and tried the Baileys Irish Cream souffle ($8.80). After watching Hell’s Kitchen and hearing Gordon Ramsay scold aspiring chefs for collapsed/watery/mushy souffles, we reckoned that it must be a pretty hard dessert to make, plus it has to be made on the spot. But Bakerzin’s apparently did it right, because we were bowled over, and that must have been the nicest dessert I’ve had. MUST TRY! It looks like a sponge cake, but tastes like foam that melts in your mouth.
Do you know how to eat a souffle?
– Open a hole in the middle of the souffle. A good souffle should not collapse nor sink into the cup.
– Pour in any sauces into the hole, in this case it was the Baileys Irish Cream.
– Dig in!!
We will certainly be back to try their other desserts, with eyes on their Creme Brulee next!
