Just got back from an afternoon tea with D at Cedele. I was at AMK after catching a movie and decided to go all the way to VivoCity just for tea. I had intended to visit Corduroy's Cafe since I was having a craving for milk shakes. Actually I had visited previously on a couple of occasions to try their milk shakes and probably because it was always after dinner, I was told at all except one visit that they had ran out. On that one exception where they were still serving milk shakes, I was told they only had vanilla milk shakes left and I had to wait at least an hour for it. So up 'til today, still no milk shakes from Corduroy for me.
I thought today would be different cos I took the effort to travel all the way from the north to the west around 5pm which happened to be tea time and presumably the time where a popular cafe would have a buzzing crowd. Again, I went home empty handed cos they ran out of milk! At 5pm! On a Sunday! Erm... I think the last I checked, Corduroy's Cafe was supposed to have a Milk Bar??! Just because they ran out of milk, almost half the drinks on the menu were unavailable. There were no pies & no quiches. I understand that business is good but after months of business, I thought they should be able to get a gauge of how much their supply should be to meet the demand. If it was late like my other visits, I could understand but I was really a bit put off when they told me that a whole list of things were unavailable at 5pm on a Sunday knowing that their milk shakes are popular!
So I politely told the person at the counter that I was there just for the milk shakes and headed off to Cedele for their delicious soups instead. Am I going to visit again?? As much as I'm inclined to give up visiting, I'm going to say 'yes' just cos I want to know just how good their milk shakes are. The best I've had was at Uberburger because their's was so thick and rich, just like the ones in the US. Sadly, Uber's no longer around. I just hope Corduroy's milk shakes doesn't disappoint. That is of course when I can get a sip of it or rather IF I can get to one day.
