We had some work meet in the area and once that concluded, it was time for lunch. Now would be a good time to drop by and give one of the eateries at the Shoplex a go.
Initial plan was to head to VCR Bakehouse but ended up at VCR Stacks instead. It was an easy mistake to make. Both located on the ground floor with a Coffee Bean between them but considering the building curves, it was easy to miss one and notice the other. I for one was not aware that there were 2 VCRs here, in the same building. It was no biggie as we ended up trying both anyways.
VCR Stacks was pretty busy when we arrived but we were lucky enough to get a table. It was a rather small setting, with 5 tables indoors and the rest outside, I appreciated the fact that tables were well spread out from one another.
Classic Chicken Sandwich, RM 22 + Almond Orange Chocolate Slice, RM 12
The Chocolate Slice was delicious. The chocolate cake on the bottom was light yet dense, topped with a generous amount of almonds with sticky sweet orange glaze. The combination was awesome
The chicken sandwich was good too. You’d get two halves of a sandwich stacked one on top of the other. Sourdough bread with a good portion of avocado, greens and shredded chicken. It was tasty. However, as this was a sharing plate between us, we still had some space left for more food.
So, we left VCR Stacks and walked over to VCR Bakehouse located less than a minute away.
As VCR Bakehouse occupies a corner lot, this eatery seemed like it was more spacious then the other one, it had a more outdoor-ish feel to it, surrounded by greens. With the open concept, its fresh air with brightly lit environment. I liked it.
Strawberry Shortcake Croissant, RM 18 + Almond Croissant
The shortcake croissant was their special for the day. It wasn’t my favorite but my friend liked it. I generally do not fancy anything with a ‘whip cream’ texture and taste. Anything similar, I dislike it. The croissant itself was nice, topped with cream, crumble and strawberry. The inside had a similar cream filling except with small bits of strawberry scattered all over. My friend liked it and so, I suppose it was good.
The Almond Croissant was da’bomb. I loved it. The croissqnt itself was buttery and large. I liked that it wasnt too flaky. It tasted good and on the inside, there was some sweet glazed which complimented the croissant and the almonds very well. The almonds here, there was a very good, generous portion of it. Soo delicious. Yumm 😍
