It’s been a year since Cafe Felix popped up on our radar as the place for a continental food fix, we’re talking risottos, burgers, milkshakes, cocktails, and desserts. We’re not exaggerating when we say that pretty much everything on the menu is to die for (they’ve even made quinoa taste good).
So, obviously, we were over the moon when Cafe Felix announced that they had cooked up a special mango menu in commemoration of their first anniversary.
We started off with the cocktails, the Vodka Ripe Mango chocolate Ganache Chilli is perfect if sweet ain’t your thing, while the Sparkling Wine and Mango Passion Sorbet was the perfect Bellini twist for a hot summer day.
Next, we were on to the salads, we sampled all of them and would definitely eat a bowl of any of them cheerfully. We particularly enjoyed the Asian Steak Salad (disclaimer: contains beef) with its beautifully prepared steak, crunchy peanuts for that earthy flavor, and soba noodles combined with the sweet of the mango. Special mention for how gorgeous each salad looked – definitely Insta-worthy.
We couldn’t wait to try the gnocchi – it had been a long time since we had tried a decent gnocchi – and it didn’t disappoint. The pesto was amazing, while the light potato gnocchi was melt in the mouth, all tied together with a delicious mango-apricot nage. If you feel like splurging a little, the pan-seared salmon is sure to be a good bet!
Trust me when I say dinner is nothing without dessert. Honestly, you’ve mucked up if you haven’t had dessert at Cafe Felix. We were super excited to see the Mango Tart and Frozen Yogurt, but what really blew our minds was the Coconut and Chia Seed Panna Cotta. The panna cotta was perfectly set, a little creamy and not too sweet, while the chia seed added a delightful mix up in texture, and the fresh mango and home-made ice cream added tart and sweet respectively.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to hurry if you want to try the Dear Mango Menu at Cafe Felix because it ends with mango season. (Wo)man go, we promise you’ll regret it if you don’t.
