It’s not that easy to find Necessary Provisions without a GPS/google map. The cafe is located at 21 Eng Kong Terrace which is somewhere between Bukit Batok and Bukit Timah. I was on google map navigating while Pakcik was behind the wheel.
Seating capacity is extremely limited, so we had to wait for people to leave before we got a table.
We were there on a Sunday afternoon, so not much selection on the menu.
I had one of the weekends special: Savory French Toast ($5.00+). Pretty interesting to have french toast with salt and black pepper.
Pakcik’s was Rosemary Chicken Sandwich ($9.00+). Love the olive oil on the toasted bread and the not-too-dry chicken breast~
I chose hot chocolate ($6.00+), while Pakcik had the Iced Espresso in Milk ($6.50+).
To enjoy the espresso, simply pour the Meiji milk over the iced cube, stir and wait for it to melt~
Next time, I shall go there on Saturday after 6pm to try the other menu~

We continued on our cafe hunt and landed in Flock Cafe.
It’s pretty crowded on weekends and it took us a while to get a table.
Initially I wanted to try the pasta, but Pakcik “forbids” me to. He said that since it’s brunch, I should order something from the All-Day Breakfast menu.
And that’s how I ended up with the Scrambled Eggs & Croissant with Smoked Salmon ($14.90).
I think I made the right choice because the croissant was really good! It’s buttery, crispy, and tastes great on its own~ Scrambled eggs were done perfectly as well. Thumbs up!
Pakcik’s Cheeky Eggs ($16.90) was pretty good. The 2 poached eggs sat on braised pork cheek and English muffin, and topped with Hollandaise sauce and rocket lettuce. Since I like rocket lettuce, this breakfast dish definitely wins my heart.
I did the “opening ceremony” for Pakcik~
Love how the yolk oozes out from the firm whites.
I took a video of the egg cutting ceremony. The yolk did a little peekaboo with me…
We had a cup of Long Black ($4.80) to end the meal~

Opening Hours: Daily 08:00 – 18:00
We were at Suntec for the bridal show a few weeks ago. I happened to see The House of Robert Timms at level 1 and I told Pakcik that we must go there for late lunch later.
So after signing the bridal package, we went straight to Robert Timms.
The first thing I ordered was the Cafe Mocha ($6.50++) and I specifically requested for the lion drawing. =)
It’s Pakcik’s first visit, so he asked me what’s so good about Robert Timms and I replied:”This lion loh~”
That’s me, admiring the lion, and couldn’t bear to stir it.
Pakcik had The Big Bang ($18.80++). It’s a huge plate of Bratwurst sausage, American sausage, smoked turkey breast, beef patty, bacon, toast, grilled tomato and baked beans. No eggs though.
The sausages and beef patty were yummy~ Pakcik love the multi-grain toast a lot. I think the portion size is so generous that even Pakcik almost couldn’t finish everything on the plate.
Then came my beer battered fish and chips ($19.80++). There’s a choice of criss cut fries and french fries. I went for the latter because I love big fat fries!
Anyway, as you can see, the fish is so big that you can hardly locate the pile of fries and coleslaw underneath.
I am already very fat. But look at the size of the fish compared to my face! Lol~
$19.80 is really very worth it.
Plus, the batter is light and crispy, and keeping the fish so juicy and tender. I had to fight the impulse to grab the fish with my hands and just eat it like a barbarian.
But too bad… Pakcik was around, so I have to maintain lady-like and eat it with fork and knife…
By the way, the menu at Robert Timms is very extensive and you will definitely have a tough time deciding what to eat. But one thing for sure, you must ask for the lion or bear coffee art!
