The gourmet menu
We took the opportunity to try out the delicacies Cafe Calma had to offer, and sure enough, it was worth a try. One of the dishes we started with was the Whipped Feta with Cherry Tomatoes and Sourdough. Being a little on the lighter side the Cherry Tomatoes complemented the Feta cheese very well. The sourdough bread was crisp and lathered with garlic butter. Moreover, the dish was a small plate appetizer and sufficient enough for two people.
We tried the Roasted Sweet Potato and Bacon Jam as another appetizer. The roasted sweet potato was sliced delicately filled with cream cheese at the bottom and topped with a sweet and savoury Bacon Jam. Also, the sweetness of the jam and potatoes blends well with the Cream cheese. The quantity was sufficient and the potatoes were soft and well-cooked.
Cafe Calma has a separate section for Tartines. Tartines are deconstructed sourdough sandwiches with savoury toppings. The Katsu Tartine is an Asian-style Katsu Tofu with crispy tempura and pickled cucumber on toast. This dish was crisp and toasted sourdough bread, with toppings was evenly divided among two toasts.
The large plate menu by Cafe Calma has main course fusion dishes with a Mexican essence. For non-vegetarian lovers, we tried their homemade Nono’s meatballs. They were well-cooked and seasoned meatballs, and the potato puree balanced their texture.
Finally, to finish off our meal on a sweet note, we tried their recommended Orange chocolate Tart with Nova’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Gelato. The Gelato was less sweet, and the orange chocolate tart was a great complement. Additionally, the orange jelly top spiral design carving gave the dessert an aesthetic and gourmet look.
Overall the cafe was a great find and is good if you are looking to give yourself a gourmet treat. Being a rooftop cafe with ambient lighting, it is also a perfect date place with your loved one.
