Overall, we like this place considerably. The food is good, the coffee is great and the ambience just makes you park your bum there comfortably. A great café experience. The thick-cut bacon is a must-order here. Check them out if you are in the East, we’ll definitely come back to try the rest of their menu. Cheers!!
5 Oars Coffee Roasters located in Siglap is much more than your average Starbucks, superb quality bistro-style food & even Mead on sale....
We like the new Five Oars Coffee Roasters East Coast at Siglap. Stylish and charming aesthetics combine with its excellent coffee, variety of food offerings and friendly service make Five Oars Coffee Roasters Cafe a cafe you just want to visit and linger. It is a feel good place. Every neighbourhood should have one.
Serving quality coffee and a fair range of light bites, Stamping Ground Coffee House in Siglap is a very nice neighbourhood cafe.
In all, Stamping Ground Coffee House isn't quite an exciting place for coffee or food but at least it smells good (they've an on-site florist) and it's a pretty place.
Stamping Ground Coffee’s breakfast menu is limited to 3 items, yet you’ll find satisfaction in the simplicity of each dish. The all-day menu features 10 dishes and each dish costs no more than S$15 nett.
Wong is super friendly and warm. And the food is superb. Really enjoyed ourselves here. Highly recommended.
It is amazing how many firsts I gave to Lucky House, particularly when I went in without expectations and left so amazed. The big question remains - how to score another appointment without killing myself with the wait.
A signature is the Lucky House Roasted Duck. The duck is marinated in fish sauce and soy sauce for 2 days and air dried. It is then charcoal grilled in his hand-built oven. The result is smokiness, crispy skin and tender meat.
Service at Diamond Kitchen is friendly, casual, and efficient.
Overall, the current Sri Lankan crab promotions are value for money.
The spacious restaurant also has a lovely ambience, though I would have to say that the location of the outlet is far too inconspicuous for my liking.
Get a taxi now, get to Lagoon Hawker on East Coast Service Road.
The guys went cycling at East Coast Park and we met for bak kut teh & pork knuckle at East Coast Lagoon Food Village hawker centre. I was quite blown away by Han Jia's braised pork knuckle (though it's obviously not for everyone).
The next item to try is their braised pork trotters ($6). The pork leg is served in a dark rich herbal sauce that you can smell even without digging in. The skin of the pork legs has a sticky and gelatinous skin holding all the chunks of meat together. Packed full of deep soy herbal flavour and collagen. Although the leg is stewed till a very dark shade of brown, it is neither really salty nor savoury. Instead it is the herbal flavour that is very prominent.
Their homemade pandan kaya dip was worth a mention, with coconut taste that reminded us of the old-school traditional morning breakfast at our coffee-shops.
Overall, Thai Boat Noodle is great for a quick, affordable Thai food fix. Though I wasn’t particularly impressed by their boat noodles, their other dishes are definitely worth trying, especially the ka moo!
their new Lucky Clover is a puff pastry that pairs savoury bacon with garlic and spring onion for added fragrance.
Pâtisserie CLÉ is perhaps best known for its Tart Gift Box with a choice of eight tarts and you have to try the signature Orh Blanc Tart which is an interesting fusion of the French Mont Blanc dessert and the local orh nee flavour.
If the seafood version doesn’t quite hit the spot for you, then do what I did and ask for the plain old bak chor mee. I think you will agree with me that it is actually quite shiok!
