Flee Away Cafe to 70 Dunlop Street S(209398) - Le Char Kuey with All Day Breakfast Filling & Dry Laksa Filling

The Executive Chef 

Chef Adrian Toh brings with him close to 20 years experience in the F&B industry having worked for major F&B establishments. It was whilst working at Chjimes with Fan Hui Ling (Ling) that he got to know Ling and they became good friends. 

When Ling decided to establish Flee Away Cafe with her two partners  & invited him to come onboard to helm the kitchen at Flee Away Cafe, Chef Adrian Toh took up the offer. Together he & Ling came up with the Flee Away Cafe Menu 2015, featuring Le Char Kuey with 4 different Specialty Fillings as the Signature at Flee Away Cafe. Besides this Chef Adrian Toh & Ling also develop recipes on the Beef Hash Pie Tee, Tau Kwa Salad, desserts like the Gula Melaka Sago.

The Signature Le Char Kuey 
Le Char Kuey with All Day Breakfast Filling priced at S$ 15.50 per serving. 

Core Ingredients include - Bite size turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, baked beans, chicken sausage.

Tasting Notes - This Le Char Kuey with All Day Breakfast filling tastes exactly like the all day breakfast just that the ingredients are stuffed into the Le Char Kuey as fillings. The fillings lends a savory flavor to the otherwise fluffy crispy buttery Le Char Kuey. The 2 inch by 10 inch Le Char Kuey is generously filled with bite size turkey bacon, chicken sausage that together lends a salty savory flavor, coupled with the tarty flavor of tomato, eggy moist scrambled eggs, & when you roll these ingredients altogether, they give you a buttery, tarty, lightly salty savoury flavor all rolled into one. 
The Le Char Kuey is served with a cup of mini Pappadum that is very flavorful. This is indeed an asian fusion twist to an otherwise western breakfast - you have the Asian version of the croissant that comes in the form of the Le Char Kuey (dough  fritter You Tiao), the pappadum lends an Indian twist to it. 

The Signature Le Char Kuey with Dry Laksa Filling priced at S$15.50 - served with the Le Char Kuey (dough fritter or You Tiao) filled with dry laksa made ala minute.

Core Ingredients include - Le Char Kuey, laksa, eggs, fish cake, 

How it is Prepared - Notice that the Le Char Kuey is 50% cooked when the supplier delivers to the cafe. Chef Adrian Toh deep fries the Le Char Kuey as per order, till it is fully cooked, then drains off excess oil from the Le Char Kuey & adds the filling as per order. Flee Away Cafe buys customised laksa rempah from their supplier's factory and they come in 5kg vacuum packs. Chef Adrian Toh simply adds in coconut milk, with a dash of seasoning to flavor. 

Tasting Notes - The Le Char Kuey has a buttery flavor, but not oily at all.  The Le Char Kuey has texture that reminds me of the french croissant fluffy chewy, it is indeed the local's answer to the croissant with its chewy interior texture, with lots of air pockets to give it that fluffy extra bite. 
This dry version of laksa, retains the authentic laksa flavor, the coconut milk lends an added extra fragrance to the thick vermicelli. Within the thick vermicelli is embedded a generous dose of sliced hard boiled eggs & julienned pieces of fish cake that adds a localise twist to the Le Char Kuey. The Le Char Kuey comes in 10 inch length. The thick vermicelli with hard boiled eggs & tau pok, & julienned bits of fish cake goes very well with the buttery Le Char Kuey. The dry laksa is not overly spicy & has the rich, lemak flavor of laksa tht makes it very appetising. When you rolled the dry laksa filling with Le Char Kuey, it blends very well. Chef Adrian Toh uses coconut milk to lend aromatic coconut flavor in the laksa.
