House of AnLi Bistro is hidden within the furniture cum accessories shop. Walk through the entrance and reach for the end and one will be wowed by the interior decoration. It is good that the bistro decided to place a signage at the entrance of the shop, otherwise, most would have missed this hidden gem.
It has full window panel as such natural lights entered to warm the space. Even though there are mixed and match furniture within the bistro, all harmonized as such it was pleasant. With green scattered, the space looks gorgeous.
Half the menu was devoted to breakfast kind of food. The remaining half was Starters, Mains and desserts.
Diners could order organic eggs ($6 for 1 / $9 for 2) cooked in their preference and add Smoked Salmon ($8), Greek Feta ($6), Famer’s Bacon ($6), Fresh Avocado ($4) or Mixed Mushroom ($6). Alternatively, from the bakery, yoghurt or tartines.
Otherwise select the Gorgeous-plated brunches items such as From The Farm ($24), From The Garden ($24). Lastly, From The Sea ($26) which was my choice consisting of Smoked Eel, Avocado, Asparagus and Avruga Caviar. Overall the food not only looks appetitising but tasty. It was the Smoked Eel that flavoured the dish.
Carbonnades De Chez Nous ($28) was a beef stew. Chunky beef cheek cubes were soften by the stew. Not only it was fork-tender, it literally melts in the mouth. The sauce has a nice aroma and was flavourful too. By the side was a fruit-like sauce, seems like apple to me. A pity bread weren’t served to dip the sauce.
A number of pastry and cakes were on the menu of House of AnLi Bistro, such as Tarte Fromage Blanc – Speculoos ($12), Gateau Au Chocolat ($10), Ice Cream and Waffles. Among the few others, I tried the Apple Tart Canelles ($10). I could appreciate this dessert due to the abundant cinnamon dusting while the apple slices were too thin. If you are looking for a lightly sweetened dessert, this is the one.
For drinks, House of AnLi Bistro offers mainly coffee and tea with a handful of other drinks. Cappuccino ($5.50) was low acidity, full body with nutty flavour note.
I like the homey feeling at House of AnLi Bistro, though it gets very noisy at full capacity. Both food and interior were pretty, lifting one’s mood.
