The hunt for the best mashed potato in Singapore, part 62
On 25 Sep 2009, I was at Cafe Cartel. I've found out that Cafe Cartel serves mashed potato with some of its main courses. However, I didn't like to try many of its main courses when I was there on 25 Sep 2009 as I did not want to eat red meat and anything that was fried that day. So I asked if I can have a special order of one serving of mashed potato, and was pleasantly delighted that Cafe Cartel allows for that!
One serving of specially ordered mashed potato costs $2 before taxes. The mashed potato has a fluffy, fine and smooth texture. From the taste of the mashed potato, it appears that real mashed potatoes were used to make this dish. I wonder how the mashed potato could be made so fine. This is a mashed potato that I won't mind having again if I were to dine at Cafe Cartel.
The brown sauce is slightly on the salty side, and it left a 'dry' aftertaste. However, overall, that was still bearable.
With this post, I wish my friend to whom this series of posts is dedicated to: pleasant surprises to cheer the day.
