The Castel Cafe at 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-1940 - The Signature Dessert Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream

This is the Signature Dessert Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream priced at S$5.00 per serving & is available at The Castel Cafe located at Blk 555, Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, Unit #01-1940. 
Tasting Notes - The Chocolate cake sponge layer is thin with a gluey fluid chocolate lava flowing out when you sliced the cake. The Chocolate sponge layer has a distinctly strong chocolate flavor. 
The dessert is drizzled with a generous dose of thick chocolate syrup. The lava portion of the cake has smooth silky texture consistency, & leeks strongly of butterscotch flavor in this recipe.
When you pair the Chocolate lava cake with Vanilla ice cream, it helps to balance & tone down the otherwise strong intense Chocolate flavor of the lava cake. 
Singularly thin shell lava cake with large portion of the Chocolate lava oozing out lends an altogether sweet chocolatety buttery taste which is a delight to all lava cake lovers! 


Now this is a typical example of a Chocolate Lava cake that is done perfecto! This dessert is so rich yet so under-priced! It happens to be my all time favorite dessert of the day whenever I crave Chocolate Lava cake I'd pop over to The Castel Cafe!
So Yum! 
So Slurp! 
So Smuck!

The Castel Cafe at 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-1940 - The Signatures Pescatora Pizza S$8 (S) & S$15 (L)

This is the Signature Pizza dish known as Pescatora Pizza at S$8.00(S), S$15.00(L) per serving is available at The Castel Cafe located at Blk 555, Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, Unit #01-1940. 
This pizza is made using Core Ingredients - fresh pizza dough made from scratch, homemade Pomodoro sauce, Mozzarella cheese, fresh squid rings, fresh prawns, fresh white clams, herbs & spices : Oregano. 
How it is prepared - The Castel Cafe Chef Mrs Lee home-makes the pizza dough & Pomodoro Sauce from scratch, layers the dough with generous shredded Mozzarella cheese, tops it  with fresh squid rings, fresh de-shelled prawns, fresh white clams, herbs & spices & bakes it in the oven till well done. 
Tasting Notes - The pizza crust is thin in the middle but slightly thicker at the edges around the circumference & has a  crisp texture, with nice air pockets to lend it a chewy bite, yet it is baked till well done but not overly dry. 
The Mozzarella cheese lends a cheesy savory flavor that blends well with the lightly sourly tarty Pomodoro sauce. 
The generous dose of seafood mix - juicy fresh white clams, chewy juicy sweet fresh squid rings, fresh juicy large prawns adds a decent seafood flavor to this Signature Pescatora Pizza. 
The Castel Cafe buys fresh squids, clams & prawns from the local market & does the Pomodoro sauce & pizza dough from scratch daily, does not use any preservatives nor additives for its kitchen here, & thus rightfully earns my respect for being so true to authentic Italian traditional culinary styles - homestyle, rustic, raw fresh ingredients, Pomodoro sauces & pizza doughs made from scratch. 
The Castel Cafe serves a decent fresh coconut drink that paired really well with the Pescatora Pizza.

The Castel Cafe at 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-1940 - The Signature Gnocchi di Patate S$8.00 per 120 gm serving (feeds 2)

This is the Signature Gnocchi available at The Castel Cafe priced at S$8.00 per 120 gm serving available at Blk 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, Unit #01-1940. 
Gnocchi (pronounced as Nyo-Kee) di Patate is a potato pasta (potato dumpling) where the potato is wrapped with a layer of pasta. 
This dish is made using Core Ingredients - onions, gnocchi, sliced fresh Shiitake mushrooms, celery stalks, fresh asparagus, fresh garlic slices, Bay leaves, Pomodoro sauce, garnished with coriander leaves.
How it is prepared - The Gnocchi pasta is cooked with fresh julienned Shiitake mushrooms, celery stalks, fresh thinly sliced asparagus, fresh garlic slices, Bay leaves, in the Chef's special Pomodoro  & cream sauce. 
Tasting Notes - The gnocchi has a chewy al dente bite. The Shiitake mushroom & asparagus are thinly julienned & the ingredients are served in a tomato cream sauce made using Pomodoro sauce & cream to lend a tomato tarty flavor. The fresh julienned Shiitake mushroom are lightly sauteed & still retain a crunch when you bite into it. They are infused with the Pomodoro sauce to give you a creamy savory flavor.  
The asparagus is so thinly julienned & cooked well done so that it is totally infused with the Pomodoro sauce. The fresh onions thinly julienned adds a sweet flavor to this dish. This is indeed a real comfort food in authentic Italian style.

The Castel Cafe at 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-1940 - The Signature Crespelle di Spinachi

This is the Signature Crespelle di Spinachi priced at S$6.00 per serving of 3 pockets, served here at The Castel Cafe located at Blk 555, Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, Unit #01-1940.
This dish is made using Core Ingredients - chicken meat, onions, spinach, mushroom, eggs & flour (to make the crepe), Pomodoro  sauce, fresh cream, fresh Coriander leaves to garnish. 
How it is prepared - The crepe is made using eggs & flour and is made ala minute as per order. Then to it is added the stewed chicken meat, spinach, onion & mushroom which are then wrapped & baked & served with Pomodoro & cream sauce.
Tasting Notes - the Crespelle di Spinachi is one of my favorite Italian comfort food whenever I visit The Castel Cafe. 
I love it that the chicken & mushroom are carefully stewed till they absorb the flavors of the broth & cooked till tender. They are then wrapped up in the crepes made fresh, & then baked with Pomodoro & cream sauce drizzled on top of the crepes. 
The onion lends a sweet flavor to the pocket. The cream sauce used in this recipe is likely made from cream, milk, Pomodoro sauce & this lends a tarty creamy tomato flavor. This creamy sauce pairs so well with the savoury contents of the pocket. 
The result is a heart warming savoury flavor of tender chicken & mushroom that blends with the tender eggy flavor of the crepe, & paired well with the creamy Pomodoro sauce.

The Castel Cafe at 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-1940 - The Beginning The Ambience

The Beginning 
The Castel Cafe at Blk 555, Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, #01-1940 is founded by Francis Lee & his wife Mrs Lee in 2010. 
The Castel Cafe used to be called "Sfigato Cafe" when it first operated from Beauty World Centre & 127 Bukit Merah Lane 1 & at its peak had total of 5 outlets in Singapore with its Chefs trained under the Italian Chef who used to be a minority shareholder of Sfigato Pizza (* now The Castel Cafe ) before his return to his hometown Italy. 
Due to changes in the foreign labour policy in recent times & labour crunch, The Castel Cafe operations has been streamlined to one main outlet at 555 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10.
