Hey guys! I hope you’re all doing well in spite of everything. I’ve been feeling uninspired lately. Nothing I write seems to feel right, and I can’t think of ideas. Maybe it’s burn out. I hope it’ll pass.
Anyhoo, I still want to post something – so here’s a short and sweet one about brunch at Unicorn 25, a cafe at Skypod Square in Puchong, just across the road from IOI Mall.
Seeing as how dead the place is, I’m surprised the cafe has lasted this long. The cafe is apparently famous for its waffles and toast, but they also have Western dishes like pasta and sandwiches which are affordably priced and cater to the surrounding office crowd.
It’s a nice spot if you need a quiet place to work.
It so happened that there was a water disruption during our visit, so they weren’t able to serve any drinks other than the bottled ones. Which was a shame, because their menu has some pretty interesting beverages, like creme brulee latte and chocolate banana frappe, to name a few.
The waffles and desserts are on the pricey side, but the pastas are affordable.
Since the Moo and I weren’t in the mood for sweets, we ordered some pasta: seafood aglio olio for her, mushroom and ham carbonara for me. The portions were hefty, and the pasta was cooked al dente.
I enjoyed my mushroom and ham ‘carbonara’: it was creamy but not cloying, had generous amounts of mushroom and ham, and some cheese powder on top. Of course, no Italian chef in their right mind would call this actual carbonara, but most of the versions here are bastardised anyway. 😛
Pros: Affordable pastas, quiet environment, easy parking
Cons: Expensive waffles / toast
