Halcyon and Crane Cafe Review
Halcyon and Crane cafe takes cafe food to another level. The food quality and uniqueness here are different from your typical cafe. The burrata cheese with ham salad has Spanish serrano ham, honey rock melons, mixed greens, olives, crushed roasted pistachios, and toasted pumpkin seeds with honey mustard dressing. Now that is fancy for cafe food and the best part is that it tasted great. The same goes for the chorizo dish, excellent sourdough bread with bursting umami flavors from the chorizo. Their drinks are also like an experiment with their signature Yuzu Passionfruit Coffee Cube.
Things I like
- Making cafe food taste like a proper high-end restaurant taste and presentation.
- Burrata cheese with ham salad was perfect. If you like those ingredients to begin with, you will definitely like this dish.
- Great sourdough bread with bursting umami flavors from the chorizo
Halcyon and Crane Cafe Food & Price
We were walking around paragon mall and stumbled upon Halcyon and Crane cafe. They had a nice Chinese/Japanese umbrella decoration throughout the cafe.
When I saw the burrata cheese with ham salad ($25.00) has Spanish serrano ham, honey rock melons, mixed greens, olives, crushed roasted pistachios, and toasted pumpkin seeds with honey mustard dressing. It has all my favorite items in a salad and it tasted as good as it sound.
Next, we also order their Chorizo Shashuka Dip ($25.00). My goodness, it was delicious, perfectly toasted bread, bursting umami flavor chorizo, and the combination of the egg and tomato, I wipe it clean.
For drinks, we order their signature, Yuzu Passionfruit Coffee Cube ($14.00). It was not the greatest but definitely interesting and was worth trying. You can actually taste the yuzu, passionfruit, and coffee so the mixture was done right.
Lastly, we order their hot chocolate ($8.00), I would prefer if they could add more chocolate to it as it tasted slightly diluted.
Did not know they were a Sichuan influence as well, would definitely like to go back and try that in the future.
Halcyon and Crane Cafe Service & Ambient
To our surprise, the shop was not crowded with a long queue during peak lunchtime on Sunday. We got our seats within 15 minutes. The staff was friendly and prompt.
The cafe had a nice and cozy environment with sofa seating. There were a ton of pillows on the sofa which takes up quite some space.
