Food for Thought

Had a break from work today. So I decided to check out a place together with my wife. It was a place that I had been wanting to check out for quite some time already. It took a hefty amount of time because reviews by others were pretty mixed. Food for Thought, a cafe housed in the Singapore Arts Museum along Queen Street. They actually have another newer outlet within the Botanic Gardens too. My first impression upon stepping in was that its design was simple yet modern and contemporary (Chic). I think it is a great place for friends to chill out and have some great food.

Let's move on to the main topic now, shall we? ^^ On the left, we have a cup of hot chocolate. Not just any chocolate, but dark chocolate! Many places that I have been to doesn't serve dark chocolate drinks. The chocolate was just right and simply chocolicious. To the right, you wouldn't believe it if I told you that... it is Ice Lemon Tea with White Wine. Yes, White Wine! Can you imagine that? I just had to try it when I saw it on the menu. I was a little skeptical about it at first, but with my first sip, I feel in love with it. It was really refreshing! The amount of wine was perfect, giving the ice lemon tea a hint of grape and zestiness that would otherwise be missing. Try it!

My wife had the House Works. It consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon, toasted brioche (which my wife swapped with garlic mushrooms at an additional charge of $2), hash brown and thyme tomato salad. First of all, the salad was a let down. It came without any dressing at all. If we knew that, we would have swapped it  with chunky chicken sausages. Damn! However, the rest of it was pretty good. Not spectacular, but decent enough to wet our appetites.

Now for the main highlight! Duo of pancakes served with dark chocolate bits, stewed cherries, whipped cream and gula melaka syrup. This really made my day. Definitely the best pancakes I have had so far in my entire life. The pancakes were light and fluffy, tasty enough to be eaten on its own. The pairing of the other condiments were spot on as well. When you bite into the pancake topped with the cherries, dark chocolate and whipped cream, it simply lifted it to another level. Simply divine. A Must try!
