Wheeler’s Yard

Wheeler's Yard

Went to Wheeler’s Yard with Pakcik on one of the weekends. We had to use google map to find the place because it was so well hidden. Parking is also an issue because there is very limited parking lots in that street. One alternative is to park in the HDB carpark across the road.

It was pretty warm so we waited for a seat in the air conditioned area. Upon ordering at the counter, we were given this buzzer. When our food is ready for collection the buzzer will vibrate.

I must say that the cafe is well maintained and managed. Customers don’t have to stand around to wait for coffee because they will be notified by the buzzer. Utensils, iced water and sauces were neatly placed in a corner for the customers. From ordering to food collection, everything is systematic and neat. Great effort!

We already had lunch earlier so we just ordered drinks and cheese fries.

Cheese Fries

The cheese fries ($9) was great! I love thick fries and the generous amount of cheese. The food portion in Wheeler’s Yard is huge, so don’t be too greedy when you place orders. I saw quite a number of couples struggling to finish their 2 mains and fries.

Hot Chocolate

Pakcik had mocha while I tried the hot chocolate. Hmmm… think the mocha is better. The hot chocolate is not up to my expectation. It didn’t gave me the “happy” feeling after drinking it. Kinda too powdery?

Anyway, both of us like this cafe and will definitely be back to try the burgers and breakfast.

Drinks Night~

Our June gathering, only 3 made it, was fun with drinks~ LOL~ SK thinks that all gatherings that involved alcohol are fun~

We started off with 31 Bar & Kitchen along Keong Saik road. The super nice staff let us try a very smoky tequila shot when we asked her to recommend the drinks. This little brownish tequila was a killer. It’s so smoky, that I thought it must have been aged in burnt oak barrel. The charcoal taste lingered in our oral cavity for the longest time and I felt like 75 years old after sipping it. I don’t think any young pple (not that I am very young) would like the taste. Plus, it was sooooooo strong that it could probably kill all the microorganisms down the GI tract. LOL~ We said no, and chose the milder tequila instead.

Tequila Shot

So 3 of us had the milder tequila to start the night.

I had my usual Long Island Iced Tea. Min asked what’s in the drink other than Tequila, and I gave her a superb answer: a lot of things.

LOL~ That’s SK’s brain after just 1 tequila shot.
I can’t remember exactly what drinks they had, but I remembered the red one was quite tomato and tasted savory.

We were feeling very warm so the lady gave us the air con remote controller. LOL~

After that, we cabbed to Maison Ikkoku in Kandahar street.

Maison Ikkoku

Thanks to Min for recommending this very interesting bar. Basically, there is no drinks menu. So you just need to tell the staff what you feel like having and the bartender will create something for you. =)

I said I wanted something sweet but strong, and I received this pretty drink. It’s rum with lychee and edible flower petals. Can’t really taste the lychee but it’s a strong drink indeed.

Hua’s  drink was something sweet with mango and it came with a flaming rosemary. I like this drink~

Min wanted something clean with Gin and cucumber. That’s hers and it’s flaming too~

For round 2, I ordered peanut butter cup but since they didn’t have peanut butter, I got a super yummy hazelnut chocolatey drink~

It’s so creamy, yet with strong alcohol. I can only describe it as liquid dessert~

Hua’s 2nd drink was strawberry based. Supposed to have the dry ice effect but it was gone before it reached the table.

We had fun playing number games and that’s our semi-drunk selfie~ It’s weird that we always think that we opened our eyes damn big but the photo shows otherwise…

Necessary Provision 2

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.

Necessary Provisions

 

We were there on a Sunday afternoon, so not much selection on the menu.

Savory French Toast

I had one of the weekends special: Savory French Toast ($5.00+). Pretty interesting to have french toast with salt and black pepper.

Rosemary Chicken Sandwich

Pakcik’s was Rosemary Chicken Sandwich ($9.00+). Love the olive oil on the toasted bread and the not-too-dry chicken breast~

Hot Chocolate

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~
