Oh man, this post is so belated, I hope my friend doesn’t kill me! Remember nearly 2 years ago, I posted about this tiny cafe called Room with a View tucked away on the 5th floor of a Carpenter Street building? Well they’ve grown up and they have a full fledged cafe complete with hot food, at the new Alexandra Retail Centre in Pasir Panjang!
I had the opportunity to try it a couple of months back and I have to say, it’s the perfect place to spend a quiet afternoon tapping away on your laptop and sipping a cuppa. There’s also free WIFI to boot and lots of power point sockets! There are so many office towers around Alexandra Retail Centre aka ARC, such as Mapletree Business City, NOL, PSA , HP etc… If only bosses would allow you to work offsite! If it were me, I think I would be doubly productive in a more conducive environment!
Delicious coffee. Strong and smooth. Packs a punch which is perfect for waking sleepy office workers up. Don’t you just love the cute bright red saucer? It put me in a good mood even before I’d drunk the coffee! And the biscotti that Room makes is very good too.
I had this for my lunch. I was afraid it would turn out to be just any old chicken sausage which I can cook myself, but this sausage was very delicious. It was really juicy, coupled with the cheesy bits oozing out. I liked that it didn’t feel fattening either. Also liked the rosti. The potatoes were cooked just right and retained a nice bite. The colour was a little darker than usual, because the skins of the potatoes were also used.
Is it just me or do you see something funny here….
The Partner ordered this and enjoyed his sandwich very much. It was chock full of ingredients that were threatening to spill out. A twist to the usual BLT, the creamy avocados made the sandwich feel more substantial than if it had just been plain old lettuce. If you order the panini sandwich for takeaway, you get a free iced tea!
This brownie would please dark chocolate lovers. As I have a sweet tooth, I thought it wasn’t sweet enough for me.
