Food Review: Boufe | Boutique cafe in Phoenix Park

The Place Phoenix Park has long been dominated by Spruce as the long standing restaurant in this compound, surrounded by old buildings. I always think this compound is under-utilised, so am quite happy to hear that a relatively new café has quietly opened recently. It is not difficult for me to draw a liking to Boufe (think boutique and café combined) on first sight, with its white-washed façade and interior. There is a rather spacious outdoor dining area at the backyard of Boufe, which makes it ideal if the weather is merciful, with the lush green surroundings.

The Food
Expect the usual café fares for brunch such as Triple B ($21) and Brioche French Toast, while there is a separate dinner menu after 6pm. I was drawn to the colourful dessert offerings at the counter, from homemade Macarons to Glazed Citron Tart to Chocolate Tart for the sweet tooth.

We were in the mood for something hearty, so we settled for the Triple B ($21), generously accompanied with croissant, assorted sausages, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, scrambled eggs and greens. The croissant was my favourite, being freshly baked with a nice buttery flavour.

The Truffle House Baked Baguette ($17) stood out more as compared to the Triple B in my opinion. The truffle mushroom ragout was so delicious, topped on the homemade baguette. Unfortunately, the poached egg was quite bland that day else this dish would be perfect.

The Latte ($4.80) I had was really good, strong and acidic, which perked me up instantly.

It would be quite a pain to get here without a car, as the café is located some distance from the entrance of Phoenix Park.

Will I Return Again? While Boufe’s location is charming and food is decent, I would probably not go the extra mile to re-visit unless I am in the vicinity. Afterall, there is really no lack of good cafes around Singapore which are more conveniently located.
