Everytime I walk past, the cafe is never full and tends to only have a handful of patrons.
Aporo’s decor is modern and simplistic with lots of tables, perhaps more than what is needed. We arrived shortly before 12pm, and were the only patrons in the cafe. Staff were friendly and were constantly reminded of their daily special, which started to get on my nerves. The menu is simplistic which consisted of a number of burgers, few salads and some counterfood consisting pies, sausausge rolls and filled breads such as panini’s.
We decided to order two burgers. The service was very slow, we waited around 15 minutes for our burgers to arrive.
Berry Smoothie – was good, cold and full of flavour without any dairy or banana as a thickener.
Chicken and Avocado Burger – was told the chicken was grilled, but the chicken turned out to be shallowed fried in a pan, which meant my chicken was full of oil and all I could taste was the oil. One slice of avocado was given, I was expecting more seen avocado was used in the title of the burger, along with one slice of tomato and a leaf of lettuce. It is a very simplistic burger. I was not entertained by the serving size or the presentation of the burger. It would be fair to say this is a very average burger where you would only order if you were desperate. I took two bites before I called it quits.
Cajun Beef Burger – consisted of two beef patties with melted cheese placed between the two patties, one slice of tomato and a leaf of lettuce. This burger is by far better than the Chicken and Avocado burger. The beef patty was well seasoned and cooked well.
I would have been more satisfied with a burger from burger King to be honest.
