Finally, Fart Tartz Cafe has travelled all the way from the most Eastern part of Singapore to town, Singapore Expo to Chinatown. Now we have Fart Tartz @ Fook Hai Building. I was glad when I received news of this. Hence there is no reason why we should drag our feet on visiting them. We have never been to Fart Tartz @ Expo as such we couldn’t compare.
The entire space of Fart Tartz @ Fook Hai Building is whitish with lots of artificial flowers and greens decorating various part of the cafe. Interestingly, there is a mezza level in the ground floor space. And the cafe is facing the back of Parkroyal on Pickering.
We heard a lot of good things about Fart Tartz, hence we felt thrilled to try some of their signature dishes.
Our first Main was the Chilled Prawn Angel Hair ($11.90). After the first mouth, our response was tasty. It didn’t disappoint. The sauce that was tossed on the pasta was similar to terriyaki with sesame oil. It was genius to add shredded cucumber to provide the additional texture of crunch. Furthermore, the cucumber added a refreshing tone to the dish. It is perfect if it is lightly spicy.
On our second visit, we tried the Fusion Olio ($11.90). Despite it isn’t recommended on the menu, we went ahead to try. This is more suitable for the light palate since there isn’t any strong tasting sauce. It is the shallot that added fragrance to the dish and the mushroom does help a little. We find the pasta a little under cooked.
The Goldie Salted Egg Chix Grilled Flatbread Burger ($15.90) is with both love and hate. Fortunately, more hits than miss. We love the salted egg sauce as it is slanted to the savoury. We love the flatbread as it tasted like compressed roti prata. We love the amount of greens as it came as a stack. It was the fried chicken pieces which disappoint. The batter was too dense and soggy. Hence it lacks of the crispy factor. Should they improve the batter, it would score higher with us.
At Fart Tartz, they served a comprehensive drink list. It is almost like you named it they have it except lacking in the Matcha Latte. We tried one of refreshing Icy-blend, Lychee Lemongrass Freeze ($8 for small). Strong canned lychee flavour with subtle lemongrass fragrance.
My Mom as usual got the Hot Chocolate ($5.50) which she loves it.
Cappuccino ($5.50) was one of our drink order. The cuppa was nutty, low acidity and full body.
Fart Tartz @ Fook Hai Buidling offers an array of non-bake dessert. Flower-Potted Mud Cake ($5.50) with wide range of flavours were available with Nutelle Oreo and Cookie Butter as the recommended. We chose the latter. Our conclusion, it was typical cookie butter.
2 bloggers highly recommended me the Chocolate Lava Cake ($11.90) which turned out a little disappointing. Somehow there was flaw in the entirety which I couldn’t pinpoint. When I tried individual element, it tasted perfect. Anyway … maybe high expectation result in some disappoint. As such, we ate the components individually. After all, we did enjoy the dessert.
It is better to stick to the recommended dishes at Fart Tartz @ Fook Hai Building. Since we have not tried the Singapore Expo outlet, we couldn’t compare or comment.
Based on our 2 visits to Fart Tartz @ Fook Hai Building, we felt that there are some room for improvement for their food. But we like the concept of dinning in a garden.
