Hoshino Coffee (Plaza Singapura) – Orchard Road, Singapore


There are so many new restaurants and cafes that have been springing up from every corner in Singapore and to be honest I dunno this restaurant chain at all. Very famous in Japan, so I should think they should be good here too? I came to know about this place only after my 3 other girlfriends decided to meet for dinner here one of the movie nights. Read on for my story and reviews.

A long queue greeted us while there are empty tables inside. The turn around from the serving staff were not fast enough to enable the queue to shorten. Gimmick? Maybe. But that's so old skool isn't it?

Lobster Bisque Soup Spaghetti $16 - Very rich dish, very strong prawny aroma and taste. Some friends like it but I felt the 'stench' is a little too strong for spaghetti.

Rating: 3.5/5.

Taste: Overall ok only. Dunno what’s the hype all about. Coffee is not bad, beans can tell it’s very dark roasted.

Portion: Above average.

Service: Many peeps complaint about this saying how sucky their service is. Ours was pretty ok.

Ambience: Ok, not very comfy.

Price: About $30 per pax.

RTE: I would like to try the Tomato Cream Omu Rice with Shrimp and Mozarella. Other than that, really nothing special.

Location:  68 Orchard Road, #03-84,Plaza Singapura. Tel: 63383277. Apparently they take reservations.
