What, we are going to the red bean bag? That was my first expression when my friend suggested this place for our next hang out session. Apparently they serve good food and coffee which meets our requirement.
We were here on a public holiday and thanks to one of our friend who actually arrived there earlier at 11.30am (thank god!), which means he had queued for 30 minutes in order to get a table.
Anyway, the café is not in the Publika itself, you have to walk out of the mall and it’s on the upper floor of the shop lot surrounding Publika. The environment of the café is minimal yet functional design which was just ‘okay’ for me since I was keener with the food and coffee (hyped up by the reviews which I have briefly scanned through my IPhone).
Anyway, I ordered café latte and ‘Bella & the Jets’ which sounded catchy, don’t you think so? The waiting time for the f&b was ok. In general the food was presented well. I gotta agree with some reviewers in TripAdvisor that egg seems common in most food served here which is not to my liking. I have not been to ‘down under’ as RedBeanBag claims to serve Aussie style f&b. Anyway the taste of my dish and others (you can see from the pictures) are nice. Coffees are Okay for the price and presented well, but gotta say i’m not a big fan of Aussie coffee for now.
While we were having our lunch, I noticed that there were people waiting to get a table which was not very pleasant as we felt we had to leave as soon as we finished our meals. No, the waiters didn’t ‘chase’ us out but the ‘feeling’ was there as one of them kept asking, ‘anything else?’ Anyway the service was fine although the staff seemed busy the whole period we were there. We were lucky as our table was just in front of the barista counter. Overall happy with the f&b and service. Pricing was slightly above average for such café and the food portion although the beverages are well priced. I might consider coming back maybe on a non-PH, perhaps. Only if i don’t have to queue.
Visited in October 2013. How would I rate them? The atmosphere 3/5, Service 4/5, F&B 4/5.
