Real Food Revisited 3

In line with the healthy theme these 2 weeks thanks to Zespri’s Kiwifruit Challenge, I decided to take my parents to the new Real Food outlet that just opened at Killiney Road. The original Real Food cafe is at The Central just above Clarke Quay MRT Station and I’ve been there many times over the last 2 years.

It’s interesting how when you do something unappealing a number of times, it soon becomes more palatable, and may even turn into a habit? After having a Kiwifruit daily, plus the more or less raw dinner at The Living Cafe, my mind is more attuned to the benefits of eating healthily which was why I instantly thought of Real Food for Saturday brunch.

Real Food strives as much as possible to utilise organic ingredients in its food. Also, no meat is used. However, you would be really hard pressed to miss it because all the other flavours in each dish come together so nicely even without the meat! Another reason why I like coming to Real Food is because the prices are very affordable, and comparable to non-organic cafes!

Real Food - Dumpling Soup (Dumplings handmade with 10 ingredients like carrots, mushrooms, bean curd, french beans and chest nuts) $7

For example, this dumpling soup. There is no meat in the dumplings but because it’s bursting with other ingredients, and chestnuts to give it a bite, you don’t miss the meat at all. In fact, my mother asked me if the dumplings contained minced meat as it was so flavourful. The soup itself is also a delight to drink, and has a peppery base that warms you.

I almost always order this dumpling soup, or the dumpling noodles. I believe most customers who patronise Real Food consider the dumplings to be one of their signature dishes.

KPO – Killiney Post Office cafe bar

I don’t know who came up with the name KPO, but that person sure is a smart fella. KPO, if you don’t already know, is a cafe and bar situated at the Killiney Post Office building (yes the post office is still operational!). KPO = Killiney Post Office, what’s so smart about that you say. Well, how’s this? KPO is also happens to be situated on the corner of Killiney Road, Penang Road and Orchard Road. Now is that cool or what??? Word plays turn me on….ahem…moving along…

After my huge 8 eatery Gastromania Feast at Far East Square, I still managed to wobble to Orchard Road to meet up with my JC mates. Not only did I continue to have a drink at Oriole Cafe, I managed to down some Vietnamese beef pho at Killiney Road, and still have space for a peach Bellini at KPO. Nearly 10 hours of feasting…phew!

KPO Peach Bellini

Here’s the peach bellini I had for $22. Didn’t taste of peach at all. A little disappointing actually.

KPO unidentified drink

Here’s what one of my friends had. Didn’t manage to take down the name.

Exterior seating area

KPO looks cool huh, especially at night. Took this picture off http://www.imaginings.com.sg/, which owns KPO as well as Balaclava and Wala Wala. Taken from this angle, I can’t even recognise this as a place in Singapore!

There is indoor seating as well as outdoor. This was taken from the 2nd floor outdoor seating area.

See the Singapore Post sign?

KPO Cooked Food Combo

It seems that they serve cooked meals as well. Didn’t get to try any out for obvious reasons. Maybe next time.
