Marmalade Pantry at the Stables Revisited

After the wonderful Valentine’s Day Dinner at Marmalade Pantry at the Stables in Bukit Timah, I was privileged to be invited again to sample Marmalade Pantry’s more popular dishes, as well as the dishes that are only available at this outlet and not at Orchard ION.

If you have the time, do visit Pantry at the Stables during the day as you would be able to better appreciate its unique dining location surrounded lush greenery which surrounds the Bukit Timah Saddle Club. Night time is also good if you are looking for a romantic evening. I will warn you in advance that it is really pitch dark beyond the restaurant area, so it is not possible to walk out unless you feel extremely brave. Hmm, the lack of light might actually make this a good place to catch some of Singapore’s night sky.

It was a nice quiet evening for me, Wilson of http://Gurkhason.wordpress.com and Melissa of http://Melicacy.com. We got to sample a great many dishes and it was a wonder how we even managed to stumble out the restaurant.

I always end up posting desserts last if I’m doing the post in chronological order, but I think I’ll give the desserts some airtime today because the cupcakes are just so pretty!

Marmalade Pantry at the Stables - Pretty Cupcakes! (2)

Don’t you think the cupcakes look so luscious??? My favourite has always been the Hazelnut chocolate cupcake, which is the one on the top right. If you’re a fan of Nutella you would love it! The nice thing about Marmalade Pantry’s cupcakes are that the frosting is pretty thick and flat, which makes for easy eating. I don’t really fancy those with sky-high frosting as it just seems a little hard to eat and most times you try to lick the cream off first anyway to avoid having any land on your nose.

A creamy one which I didn’t try, but it does look so pretty though!

This is the Elvis Cupcake, which is banana cake with a peanut butter frosting.

A favourite for many ladies, the Red Velvet cupcake. The redness comes from beetroot juice that is used. Marmalade Pantry at the Stables - (2)

Marmalade Pantry @ Ion

I’ve always liked the idea of going to Marmalade Pantry. Although I feel the menu is somewhat overpriced, and the service can sometimes be horrendous, I still like dining here once in a while. Dining at Marmalade Pantry gives me the “on holiday” feeling and it always feels a treat to come here, even though it’s just a casual restaurant. Maybe it’s the menu (Weekend Brunch Menu, Food Menu, Beverage Menu). They have a lot of all day breakfast/ brunch selections. And they also have a good selection of cakes, tarts and puddings, which they place prominently at the entrance of the cafe! Is it any wonder why you almost always have to line up like 1/2 hour before you get your seat?

Marmalade Pantry Scrambled Eggs, Sausages, Baked beans and toastMarmalade Pantry Scrambled Eggs, Sausages, Baked beans and toast (2)

Eggs any style $18 – I chose scrambled eggs, with grilled English sausage, sauteed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, home made baked beans and whole wheat toast. Can you see the ripples in the scrambled eggs. The texture was just right, firm yet somehow oozing with creamy goodness, although a little bit more salt would not be a sin. The sausages were a little salty on their own, but when eaten together with the scrambled eggs, they were a match made in heaven! The baked beans were also very good and I just love baked beans, even the Heinz ones from a can.

Marmalade Pantry Spice Grilled Lamb Sandwich

Spiced Grilled Lamb Sandwich $21 – With iman biyaldi (don’t ask me what this is), mint and radish on garlic flatbread. The dip was really nice, and the spices in the lamb were flavourful. The meat itself was tough and dry which was a pity. It would just be perfect if not for the dryness of the meat.

Marmalade Pantry Cafe Latte

Cafe Latte $7 – Expensive for a latte, but I’ll close an eye given the size of the cup. Pretty good. Smooth and strong but not as good as my favourite coffee places such as 40 Hands, Papa Palheta, The Plain and Chef Icon Nature Bakery.
