My first encounter with Rocky Master was decade ago when I worked around Alexandra Technopark where one of the earliest outlet was established. The good news is this outlet still exist today. And recently, Rocky Master @ KINEX was opened in the second quarter of 2019. Since they are Halal, I am sure it will be more than welcome in Katong, especially for the Muslim community.
Feature wall, vibrant vibes are words associated with the cafe. It certainly lifts up one’s mood when entered the cafe. What I really like about the cafe is the well-spaced table, giving some privacy and yet coziness.
Highlights From Rocky Master Menu
I remember fondly of the Asian and pizza items that Rocky Master offered in the early 2000s. Their menu has since expanded with a good mix of Asian, Western. I find the Asian-inspired Western items most attractive.
Yong Wei Kai of Sgcafehopping whom invited me along to Rocky Master @ KINEX, highly recommends the Pan-fried Carrots With Prawns ($8). After devouring it with the chilli, I fully understand why the choice. Aromatic and eggy together with the highly addictive chilli is the killer combination.
For those who love satay must try the Chicken Satay Charcoal Burger ($13). The thick luscious chicken satay patty tasted exactly like your chicken satay skewer. To make it more alike, the sweetish peanut sauce sandwiched between the charcoal sesame burger together with slices of cucumber and onion to complete the look, texture and flavour.
Wash down with either the Iced Yuzu or Matcha Latte. Both are lightly sweetened. If you prefer a fruity drink, the former is a good choice. The latter is certainly the prefer for Matcha fan. It did have a good sense of matcha flavour.
Without dessert is never a complete meal. Rocky Master offered a mouth-watering selection of dessert. I couldn’t decide what I want. With the recommendation from the service crew, we opted for Tiramisu. The lack of alcohol was not an important factor as it was made up for the perfect ratio of mascarpone cheese, sponge, chocolate and coffee.
Rocky Master @ KINEX offers not only delicious Halal food that won’t break the bank but also good service and ambience.
