There's this old saying, what goes around comes around. I was just gloating to my colleague the other day that being on Invisalign really is quite a breeze, compared to people who've had to ensure the pain of metal braces. Really, I should have kept my mouth shut. Having just started on my 6th aligner yesterday, I'm in pain. There's a lot more straightening movement of the teeth with the 6th aligner, which means that I constantly feel like I'm having my teeth pulled. Without novocain.
This also means that I'm on soft foods for now. Foods like ice-cream, which is both soft and refreshingly cold, helps soothe my very tender teeth and gums. So, I'm on an all ice-cream diet for now. While the Fiance had a proper meal at Coffee Club, I was relegated to the mudpies selection. Ah well, at least there's a silver lining.
There are 2 Coffee Club joints at Wheelock Place. While the open-air outlet facing Orchard Road is open 24 hours and offers the full menu, the air-conditioned one inside, just past Borders, is open only from 8am till late and offers a limited range of dishes.
I had the Nutty Frenzy ($10.50) a majestic combination of caramel, nougat and macadamia nut ice-cream, with candied macadamias and richly satisfying dessert that's nutty and sweet. I've always liked Coffee Club's mudpies, they're generously portioned and extremely value-for-money. Obviously, the Fiance ate the macadamias and shortbread crust.
The Fiance had the Country Pie ($10.50) a yummylicious combination of marinated diced chicken, root vegetables and mashed potatoes, topped with golden molten mozzarella cheese. This is so good, it's a must-try.
The Iced Lychee Passionfruit Tea ($3.60) was a tad too saccharine, sweetened cocktail lychees were added to an already sugared fruity tea.
