Poteato is nestled in Tiong Bahru together with some other cafes nearby. Second trip to Poteato! Their design revolves around brick and cement with a touch of modern. Previously only get to try their matcha tofu cheesecake and seeing their menu decided i should come back to try their mains one day! But quite disappointed that they changed their menu (top right hand corner). There’s less variety and more expensive now. ):
Ordered their poteato dippers to try ($10). The description was crisp potatoes skin with salsa and cheese dips. So in my mind, i was like is it literally potatoes skins only?! That will be quite funny, $10 for just the skins. But yup, its actually like wedges but the ‘healthier; version as its really cut pieces from potatoes. Good for sharing as its really filling. Overdose of carbo. Not too oily though, crisp outer skin with soft inner potato flesh.
As there’s really limited choices, so the mains that we ordered were only Teriyaki Grilled Salmon ($17) & Cheesy Melt Beef Burger ($21). The Teriyaki Grilled Salmon is served with mashed potato and asparagus. Thick and rich teriyaki sauce that was a lil too overpowering and i find it a little salty. But overall, it has that jap flavour i feel. So on my very first trip there, i tried their tofu cheesecake and a cup of hot lemon tea. Trying tofu cheesecake for the first time, was refreshing, and i find the taste quite light. It’s like an alternative choice to the usual cheesecake. Its not as rich as the usual cheesecake. Got the combination of mashed up tofu mouthfeel with dense cheesecake feel. To sum up, probably after a change of menu and prices, will not want to go again.
