AEIOU Cafe

I hadn’t planned on visiting any cafes yesterday as the parents were going to take us to try this delicious fish soup stall in Jalan Besar that they had recently discovered. It’s at this coffeeshop that has a multi-storey car park attached to it. Alas, because it was the Labour Day holiday, the stall was closed!

Instinctively, the parents and the partner turned to me and said “what next”? As if I am a walking Google Map of all the cafes nearby! I did my usual thing, which is “Just drive until I see something interesting!” We were on Horne Road which has 3 cafes, but we’d already been to Two Bakers, and I really didn’t want to have to step into The Bravery (stepped in once and it was full of cooking fumes and noisy like hell).

You won’t find the AEIOU sign outside. I tried. They’ve kept the previous owner’s Oriental Antique House signage instead.

So we turned down King George’s Avenue, where we immediately spotted a tiny sign proclaiming “CAFE Restaurant”. The truth be told, the exterior looked really run down, with what appeared to be several of the oldest and dirtiest looking furniture placed outside. It was really Retro taken to the extreme if you ask me, but I later found out that these were all up cycled furniture! Certainly all very Instagram-friendly, but not very welcoming we all agreed. Still, the menu with an emphasis on clean eating did win us over eventually.

AEIOU Cafe - Frittata $12.90  (1)

Frittata with onions and bell peppers $12.90

The frittata was really tasty, not oily, with just the right amount of egg. The veggies inside were crisp and evenly distributed. Additional salad was also generously tossed onto the frittata. The only thing is, it was missing some sort of a carbo, so we ordered the $2.90 garlic bread to go along with it.

Antoinette Restaurant – Not just for desserts

Inspired by the famous last queen of France, Marie Antoinette, and exuding the style and private ambience of Marie’s favorite hideaway chateau, the Petit Trianon in the gardens of Versailles, a visit to Antoinette Restaurant, Pâtissierie & Salon de Thé lets diners embrace the same French elegance. Antoinette Restaurant was conceived by Chef Pang Kok Keong, with the 1st outlet at 30 Penhas Road opened in June 2011,  a second at Mandarin Gallery opened 2 months later; and the third and largest at 3100 square feet, opened in 2012 at Palais Renaissance.

Many people think that Antoinette is just a place for desserts, cakes and sweet treats, and indeed, they do serve these (my favourite being the Nougatine crepe!), however, there’s a whole repertoire of French inspired main courses waiting to be sampled as well in their recently revamped menu. Now, you needn’t just come during tea time, or after dinner. Anytime of the day would be just as good! The following are some of the dishes I tried at Antoinette Restaurant a while back. Can’t wait to return again!
