One thing I love about social media is that you can find new food hunts from other people’s feeds. I happened to chance upon Gecory, which stands for GElato, COffee and pastRY, through Nicholas’ Instagram account (@stormscape) and saw that the cafe was actually pretty near my place.

It has been about two months since Gecory opened its doors here at Clementi Avenue 2, just opposite the MRT station.

[Newly Opened] Dazzling Cafe Has Come to Singapore!

Wow! I must say Capitol Piazza is looking spiffy these few days! And one of the first few tenants to commence its operation is Dazzling Cafe! This Taiwanese cafe is the first branch in Southeast Asia and some of us had been anticipating its opening.

Anyway, Dazzling Cafe has two storeys but is only serving on the first floor as they are still looking for more manpower to run its full capacity while sustaining quality.

The cafe is currently having it s soft launch, so opening hours are from 12 to 8pm (last order 7.30pm). We went there on a weekday around 4pm and the queue was not very long. The wait time however was about 30 minutes so we left our number with them and went to another restaurant for lunch first.

I liked the decor of the place but found it rather dim for photo-taking even with all the light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. However, the fact that the cafe does not charge GST and service charge kind of makes up for it.

Fries with Truffle Mayo ($8). Fries with truffle infused Parmesan mayo. Initially we read the menu wrongly and thought that it was the usual truffle fries. Imagine our indignation when we could not taste any hint of truffle on the fries.

However, after dipping our fries into the bowl of mayo, we realised that the essence of the appetizer was actually in the small dish!
