Together with another intern, we decided to hop to Selfish Gene for our lunch towards the last few weeks of internship. Another small sized cafe with limited seating. Almost full-house during lunch hours. A very simple cafe with minimum decorations. I realized quite a number of cafes are including set lunches in their existing menu which is good, as it gives people like us more choices to choose from.
So my friend got the lunch special. Pasta Alla Olio with mini soup and salad ($18). Soup of the day was tomato soup. Not the creamy base kind of tomato soup but rather, refreshing, sourish with tad of sweetness. Salad was fresh, crisp and crunchy. The Pasta Alla Olio resembles the one i had before in Miam Miam, feel very chinese-like. I find that the pasta is a lil too oily probably due to the existence of bacon too. After mixing the hidden egg with the pasta, it smooth-ens the overall mouthfeel.
& i ordered the Smoked Salmon & Eggs ($15). Norweigan salmon with scrambled eggs and sauteed mushrooms. Creamy and fluffy scrambled egg. Sauteed mushrooms were buttery and aromatic. Generous portion of smoked salmon and it is not too salty, fresh, and goes really well with the scrambled egg and sauteed mushroom. Side salad complements and balance out the dish well.
