Campbell Restaurant - Haymarket

Campbell Restaurant

I don't know why but after an hour of bike riding, all I could think about was coffee - strong yummy coffe of either the Gloria Jean's Voltage type or asian ice-coffee type. Since we'd also not had lunch yet, we opted for a honky style cafe in the city.

The first thing I ordered was my iced coffee-tea mix. It was deliciousness. I love also how they separated my sugar syrup so it wasn't too sweet and wasn't too bland. My partner chose the red bean grass jelly ice-cream float. He loved it (and so did I). There was ample grass jelly, a good portion of red bean, yummy coconut milk and awesome awesome icecream (the icey type that I, but possibly not others, love). He loved it so much that he ordered another one of these (and subsequently felt sick from the milky sugary overload).

In terms of food, I opted for an afternoon tea special. These were french toast bites. Lovely golden deep fried cubes of super soft fluffy bread. It tasted almost like fairy-bread from Japan on the inside. Sooooo soft. The bad thing about it is that I like my french toast with peanut butter. But this was not an option here. I could only either have chocolate or strawberry topping with it >.<

My partner chose the cheesy seafood baked rice. This was very yummy. A good variety of seafood on a semi-fried rice base. Topped with creamy sauce and lightly-browned cheese. It was tasty, filling but not overbearing. Mmm...

Overall, the food here was pretty good. The service was also not bad. A few waiters eyed us as we pulled out and played Monopoly Deal, but none stepped in to stop us which is good. The restaurant is also clean, bright and comfy. Not a bad place to dine.
