"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Aerin’s

It’s the school holidays and my cousins brought along their kids to Singapore for holiday! This day, my cousin met up with her friend and we all joined in. We wanted to go Settlers Cafe at SMU campus initally, but due to the heavy rain, we were not able to walk over and decided on this place in Raffles City Shopping Centre.

Aerin’s offers modern classical European cuisine. There were 11 of us and the cafe wasn’t crowded on a Sunday afternoon. The seats were comfy and it was a quiet place to chat by the fountain. Here’s what we had:

Truthfully, the food wasn’t that great. I was only impressed with their Baked Apple Rhubarb Pie. It comes with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream on top of a layer of puff crust, covering a pot of piping hot baked apples, rhubarb and raisins. Hot and cold, sweet and sour, soft and crunchy, flaky and solid. It was a combination of textures and tastes that made me want to have more. It was indeed a special apple pie I’ve ever eaten. Will surely go back for their apple pie and drinks.
