Rainbow Cheese Toastie in Singapore, Epicurious at Robertson Quay
Following the hype of Rainbow cheese toasties in Hong Kong (Kala Toast), Epicurious Café introduced their version of the gorgeous cheese toasties this week. You can get one now in Singapore! There is just this magical effect of pretty food that makes one ecstatic, all the more when it involves cheese (at least for me, haha)
In case you are wondering about the colors of the cheeses, they are infused with vibrant colorings from beetroot (red), carrot (orange), spinach (green), blue (potato and garlic with blue butterfly pea) and violet (red cabbage) with minimal food colorings.
Bread is slightly buttery on the outside to a golden crust while remaining pillow-soft within. Generally, it is hard to distinguish the flavor difference between the vegetables as they are overpowered by the lactic flavour of the cheese and truffle oil. We felt that the melt and stretch ratio is not consistent so sometimes it might not stretch as well as you would expect it to be. And hence, no good picture lah!
Now, for some photo-taking styles you could try about while playing with the food. HAHA
The first shot: typically one where you stretches the two rectangular half toasties apart. You can do it either vertically (gravity-defying) or on the plate.
A top down shot: with the hands in frame, burger-shot kind of picture

For more cheese-stretchy shots, peel off the top layer of toasts (you have two chances here, one for each half toasty)
$9 on itself and $16 with fries and beetroot salad. We say, skip the fries and beetroot salad as you will probably spend a good 10-15 minutes playing and snapping pictures of the photogenic toasties? Unless, you are a fan of soggy fries? HAHA!
(Limited numbers per day, available for dinner as well)
