Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s, a cosy lounge cafe and bar located at the lobby of The Club, has launched a new menu featuring all-day breakfast (7am to 7pm), desserts, cocktails, adult shakes, juices and smoothies.
The refurbished colonial-style four-storey luxury boutique hotel, nestled along Ann Siang Road, is also home to three other restaurants and bars — The Disgruntled Chef, Tiger’s Milk and B28.
Ricotta Hotcakes ($14) – Thick and fluffy ricotta pancakes with fresh berries and slices of banana, topped with a quenelle of vanilla yoghurt. Served with truffle honey at the side.
Go for the Lobster Omelette ($16) if you prefer something savoury. Omelette stuffed with lobster bits and Gruyère cheese on toasted sourdough. Served with juicy vine-ripened tomatoes.
The omelette was done perfectly; golden-brown on the outside, soft and fluffy inside. The lobster wasn’t really fresh though.
Corned Beef Hash ($16) – Corned beef and potatoes on a toasted panini, topped with a sunny side up because everything tastes better with an egg.
For a more substantial meal, get The Club Burger ($24). Thick and juicy hand-minced angus beef patty topped with cheddar, emmental cheese and candied bacon. Served with garden salad and fries.
Mrs Maxwell’s Slow-Cooked Lamb Salad ($16) – Moroccan lamb shoulder slow-cooked for 28 hours, shredded and tossed with rocket leaves in a lemon-spiced dressing. A refreshing salad that is rich in proteins and fiber.
Crêpe Suzette ($16) – A classic French dessert featuring thin crepes infused with citrus and flambéed in Grand Marnier. Served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream. The orange sauce was too tart for my liking. I like the hot-cold sensation when the crepe was eaten together with the ice-cream though.
Watch how the Crêpe Suzette is made below.
Baked Alaska ($16) – Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s take on Baked Alaska with a twist. Here, the Baked Alaska is adorned with a tri-coloured fluffy cloud of cotton candy and fresh berries; flambéed with rum; melting into a gooey, sticky puddle, revealing the meringue covered ice-cream. A pity the dessert was too sweet with a slight bitter after-taste (from the rum).
Though the flambé desserts do create an impressive visual effect, I prefer the savoury food more.
Other than savoury food and desserts, Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s also serves cocktails, adult shakes and other alcoholic beverages. For those who don’t drink, non-alcoholic options like mocktails, juices, smoothies, coffee, tea are also available.
Vodka Peanut Butter ($16) – A boozy concoction of peanut butter and banana pairing, spiked with a splash of vodka. Being a huge fan of peanut butter, this tipple naturally caught my attention.And boy, it was love at first sip. Rich, nutty and creamy, with a hint of alcohol. Will definitely go back for this!
If peanut butter is not your thing, try the Chocolate Baileys ($16) or Piña Colada Breakfast Shake ($16).
Champagne Punch ($18) – A refreshing, fruity bubbly with fresh berries, peaches and lemon sweetened with gomme syrup, topped with prosecco. Perfect for an indulgent evening with friends.
Truffle Martini ($18) – Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s signature cocktail. An alcohol-infused pick-me-up, incorporating cold espresso with vodka and frangelico.
All in all, Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s is a good place to go with friends for decent food and amazing tipples, while ensconced in a relaxed ambience.
