The Plain Jane @ Serangoon, Singapore

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

“Being plain doesn't necessarily means to be common, ordinary.” I believe this quote says it all. The ordinary swill rolls we know of in the past were the ones with white cream and vanilla roll. Then it started having multicolours roll and so on. Over at The Plain Jane, they take it up a notch with a modern twist of the classic swiss roll. Located opposite Serangoon Stadium and two bus stop away from Serangoon MRT station.  

Introducing the not so plain swiss rolls such as Earl Grey (in the foreground) and Thai Milk Tea (in the background) | $5.9 each. The flavours were delicate yet instinctive and I love the texture of the rolls – soft, dense and compliments the cream within.

We paired the rolls with the premium tea blend, Lychee Konnyaku | $8/pot. A great drink for palette cleansing if you are having more than one rolls and it’s also a great excuse to chill out in the cosy atmosphere. We later ordered Matcha | $5.9 from the not so plain swiss rolls selection. Although I’m a matcha fan, but this turned out milky when I preferred mine slightly bitter or sweet hence this is not to my liking as compared to the other two. This would satisfy you milky matcha lovers!

I was wowed by the effort in perfecting the cream bringing it similar to the actual flavour. However, it still depends on the individual on the preference of how milky or pungent the flavours are. Generally, I am still pleased with the overall experience and am glad that the calories are not wasted.

Moreover, what can go wrong in such a tranquil settings and the not so plain yet humble Jane (owner), who often come to ensure if we enjoyed our food.

Although it’s located all the way in the North-East Region of Singapore, I am looking forward to wet my taste bud over other awesome flavours like Yuzu, Meringue Roulade and Salted Caramel swiss roll.
