#22 - Chock Full of Beans @ Changi Village

You always hear about Changi Village for its apparent reputation of being a "purple party" hangout, or you hear about the amazing food at the crowded hawker centre, but have you heard about the little cafe hidden amongst the buzz?

Chock Full of Beans is a pretty cute cafe with limited seating room and if you ever travel that far for the good hawker food, you should also pop by the cafe for a dessert or after-meal coffee.

The Place

It has a pretty nice interior. The walls were laid with brick tiles and the choice of furniture is good as it blended well with the whole look.

There is also an alfresco area, but I didn't take a shot of it as it was crowded with people chilling out with beer. Yes, even though it's a cafe, they also have to take into consideration the kind of crowd that goes to Changi V so they have a pretty good menu of beers.

Actually, what attracted me to the cafe was a picture of its really cutely designed hot coffee.

They even had a dragon design during the Chinese New Year period, check out their albums!

I think they have a rather skilled barista, to be able to come out with so many new and uncommon designs on coffee.

The Food

As I went during February (oh yes, this post is like 6 months late 0.0), it was the Valentine's season and so they had a promotional menu, which included "Rose Latte".

In line with the romantic season, their coffee was of course, designed with heart shape. It was so pretty I took like tonnes of photos with it and by the time i drank it, it was mild warm.

I didn't know what to expect, as I have never drank any flower-flavoured coffee, and I was pleasantly surprised. It is very unique, and the taste of the rose flavour and coffee blended together really well. I did not remove the petals, so I could smell the fragrance as I sip on the coffee, and the sweetness of the flower and the coffee fragrance was simply heavenly.

It was so good, I had to feedback to the friendly owner and I told them that they should have it as a permanent menu item.

The non-coffee fan, ordered an Ice Lemon Tea, which was a pretty average Ice Lemon Tea.

{ In a nutshell }

This cafe is sure a gem in the otherwise messy district, and it's worth a visit if you ever go to the far east side of Singapore! However, do note that the space in the cafe is limited so do avoid peak hours if you want a quiet visit there!
