Stateland Cafe

After the awesome visit to My Awesome Cafe for lunch, we looked for a second cafe near the Telok Ayer area to hop to for our cafe hopping session. Unfortunately, because it was already close to 3pm, there wasn’t a lot to choose from. Gaest was open but the pork crackling sandwich we had our eye on was totally sold out. The boss told us that that sandwich is the first to run out everyday. (Hey boss, got so much demand, can increase supply or not!?!). We then entered SPRMKT, but it seemed a tad sterile and unwelcoming so we left. Finally, we spotted the elusive Sarnies after trying to locate it for at least 10 minutes. I don’t know how they name the units over there, but 136 Telok Ayer Street is not located next to 137 Telok Ayer Street! Alas, no more cooked food after 3pm!

So we had to give up on Telok Ayer street. Thanks to the new Downtown Line, we decided to take the MRT to Bugis instead and try our luck at one of the cafes at Bali Lane. Been hearing so much about Stateland Cafe from my blogger and Instagram friends that we just had to check it out. Thank goodness Stateland Cafe was open and serving its signature waffles, or else I would probably have called it a day.

Group Therapy Coffee – Revisited!

I can’t believe I visited the same cafe twice, in the span of 2 weeks! Well it was lucky I did or I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to sample one of the best waffles I have eaten in a very long time! The waffle is pretty simple, with a sprinkling of icing sugar, a splob of butter, 4 slices of strawberry and maple syrup on the side. There’s no ice cream or whipped cream to distract you from what is indeed the highlight of the dish, the waffle itself. On the outside, the waffle is slightly crusty, yet on the inside it is light and fluffy. It’s so good, I didn’t even need the butter or maple syrup. Regretfully, I only managed to eat 2 squares of the waffle, before surrendering the rest of it to my colleague, who was the one who actually ordered it.

At $8.50, I think it’s a good price, and if nothing else, you should definitely order this when you are at Group Therapy Coffee!

Breakfast Buffet at Conrad Oscars

Breakfast was included as part of the Conrad Singapore Hotel package we booked for my birthday last month. I have a love hate relationship with breakfast buffets. In order to get a good seat and have lots of time to go for several rounds, one is required to wake up early. But that is so against my philosophy on weekends! In fact, it’s against my philosophy everyday!

The Partner is more of an early bird so he’s the one summoning the energy to drag me out of bed. Overt tactics such as “IF YOU’RE NOT GETTING OUT OF BED, I’M GOING DOWN FIRST AND ALL YOUR PHOTOS WILL BE OF UGLY LEFTOVERS” usually works well too.

Conrad Oscars Breakfast Ice Cream

I find it really strange that there’s actually ice cream for breakfast. I suppose the freezer glass display is permanently there so why not just offer the ice cream. But seriously, who eats gummies for breakfast?!?

Conrad Oscars Waffle Guy

The guy will also whip up waffles for you with toppings of your choice. I don’t have a sweet tooth  in the morning. Things like kaya toast, jam on bread and even milo will instantly cause me to be so sleepy, I rather go hungry than to risk it. Kind of like the sleepy feeling after lunch, except it happens in the morning.

It must be quite stressful having to take orders, cook 2 or even 3 servings at the same time and as fast as possible, and have the customer watching your every movement.

Mmmmm egg. I love egggggg! Best omelette I had was still the one in MovenPick Resort Phuket. I remember it till this day even though it was 5 years ago.

Conrad Oscars Chawan Mushi and more

Conrad Oscars also has some Asian dishes such as porridge, dim sum and Chawan Mushi. The Chawan mushi was surprisingly quite good and not overcooked, like buffet types are apt to be. The dim sum was as expected, over cooked since it was all sitting in the steamer.

I have never in my life seen kaya and peanut butter in a packet like this before.
