Riding on the wave of salted egg, their Salted Egg Carbonara is tossed with creamy and savory salted egg sauce with mushroom and turkey bacon. The flavor is well balanced and does not leave a greasy after taste. This is definitely a must try for all Salted Egg lovers. Café Etc also offers an extensive range of appetizers, such as in-house marinated chicken wings, fries and salad that is bound to set your spoilt for choices.
