Carol Mel Café: Hidden Gem at Tai Seng that Serves Western-Asian Fusion Dishes


Carol Mel Cafe...

The first time I visited Carol Mel Café was ages ago when they were new to the café scene. Back then, they only serve a fair range of cakes and beverages. They probably had some light bites which I can’t seem to recall at all. The only thing I could remember was their lovely Lychee Martini Cake.

Recently, I re-visited Carol Mel Café and found out that they now offer an extensive range of Western-Asian fusion dishes which were impressive for a café standard. I was particularly drawn to their addictive Zi-Char Salted Egg Luncheon Fries! Also, they serve really good and affordable coffee that comes with adorable coffee art. Located near Tai Seng Mrt, Carol Mel Café is a cosy, quiet and dainty café where you can relax and spend some quality time alone or with your friends over a good cup of coffee.

Zhi-Char Salted Egg Luncheon Fries // $12
Only available after 2pm, this dish is my bias and my favourite at Carol Mel Café because it was so addictive that I do not wish to share it with anyone. It has the best of both world – Salted Egg & Luncheon Meat. This combination is deadly. The staff was right. He warned us on the addictive level of the fries. We couldn’t stop ourselves from finishing the entire bowl. Also almost wanted to get ourselves another bowl of this goodness! A must-try!

Buttermilk Waffle with Cheese Curry Katsu // $17
The name of this dish caught my attention immediately. I have yet to come across any place that serves their chicken & waffle with Cheese Curry Katsu. Most places only serve it with maple syrup. This is definitely a first. The buttermilk waffle was fragrant and very crispy. The fried chicken was very well-marinated; the skin was crispy & the meat was tender and juicy. The best part was probably the cheese curry katsu sauce which was so addictive! It was sweet and flavourful. The cheese also added flavour and texture to the overall sauce.

Neptune's White Laksa Pasta // $15
I could already smell the aroma of the laksa even though it was a distance away. The dish looked really simple but it was bursting with flavours. The spaghetti reeked strongly of laksa and to my surprise, it wasn’t as spicy as it looks. The only thing that I disliked about the dish was the fried tau pok which tasted a little weird to me. Other than that, this is definitely worth trying.

Carol Mel's Classic Fish & Chips // $17
The fish & chips were not too bad. It was crispy and flavourful. The fries were really nice as well. Remember to eat this while it’s hot.

Baby Creme Brulee // $3
This mini crème brulee was the perfect way to end the meal. All the ladies need not worry about watching their diet. The texture of the crème brulee was just right; it was not too soft or hard. Eating it chilled was simply shiok!
Besides their Western-Asian fusion dishes, Carol Mel Café also serves really good and affordable coffee. Just look at that cute latte art!

They also have these captivating colour-changing drinks which are so good during the scorching hot weather. You can request the staff for these refreshing drinks!
