Review: Soi 55 @ The Cathay

You didn’t read it wrongly. Soi 55 is NOW AT THE CATHAY! Finally.

I have always envied people for getting them, but I never had a chance to because I’m never at Raffles Place, let alone Golden Shoe Market where their first outlet is! I NOT WORKING ADULT YET. So I want to avoid going to the CBD area, because I just might hanging around in that area for the rest of my life. HAHA!

Anyway, I got really excited when I first heard that they have expanded to The Cathay about 2 to 3 months ago! But I haven’t gone there because I was so busy with school, I didn’t watch any movie for like 5 months. Ok except for Our Times, at JB. Meh. Very nice meh? So fairytale-ish. Sorry the world has made me a realist. HAHA! Anyway, I digress.

The Place

Located at Level 5 of The Cathay, you can now bring your milk teas into the cinema LEGALLY. No need to sneak it in like how I always do with my gong cha. HAHA! Photo 3-12-15, 4 12 04 PM
You won’t miss them because they are to the left of the ticket and popcorn counters with their monochromatic stripes!

LOOK! They even have snacks for you to bring into the cinema like their brioche! We didn’t get any because we just had our meal at The Assembly Ground!

You’d realize that the prices for their drinks here are a little more expensive than what they have at Golden Shoe! It was explained to us that it’s because of the rental (of course), as well as for the bottled drinks, they don’t add ice to it, and so you get more drink for your buck! Quite worth it, in my opinion!

The drinks

We ordered their Thai Milk Tea ($4.90) with sago (+$0.50), and their Thai Green Milk Tea ($4.90) + Grass Jelly (+$0.70)! I’m sorry you can’t really see the prices from the menu picture because of the reflection! There was a queue behind me and I was rushing to snap a quick picture of it! Haha!

I LOVED THE THAI GREEN MILK TEA. It wasn’t overly sweet and you could actually taste the fragrance of the green tea, as well as the slight tea after taste. How authentic! Seriously, the BEST thai green milk tea I’ve had in Singapore! The ones I usually have tend to be overly sweet and artificial tasting!

The Thai milk tea was also really fragrant and do go for the LESS SWEET OPTION, if you’re not too keen on something sweet! We found the original version to be a tad too sweet like what we usually get in BKK! Otherwise, taste-wise it was great!

If you’re curious about how they add the toppings into the bottles, like I did… Here’s a GIF of it!  soi55For a split second, I was honestly wondering about HOW THEY PUT THE TOPPINGS IN AH, but after seeing them do it, I was like ya hor, like that lah. I think I don’t have common sense. Hahaha! It’s also pretty therapeutic to watch, isn’t it?!

Anyway, we caught the last sequel to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. I’ve read the series before but can’t seem to remember anything about it. While I saw several comments on my facebook and instagram that the movie was a “waste of time” and “boring”, I thought it was too, in the first half an hour. After that quite exciting what! Apart from the lengthy conversations at the start, it was pretty action packed at the climax (DUH), but I thought it was pretty exciting!

To end this post abruptly because I don’t have anything to write any more – YAY NOW WE CAN BRING MILK TEAS INTO THE CINEMA! I actually intentionally came to The Cathay to catch the movie so I could try Soi 55. What a great marketing strategy ah, win-win for both parties. Not bad.
