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~
78 Moh Guan Terrace
Opening Hours: Daily 08:00 – 18:00
Was at Forty Hands on a Saturday afternoon. There wasn’t any tables left inside the cafe so we had to sit at the tables along the corridor.
The mocha ($6.50) was not bad. Glad the weather was really cooling and made it enjoyable to sip coffee outdoor.
I had the Eggs Benedict with steak and spicy roasted potatoes ($16). I must say that the roasted potatoes are really good. Very well seasoned and cooked to perfect crispiness. Yum yum~
The steak is kinda mediocre, nothing to shout about.
Here’s an egg porn for you.
See that yolk lava oozing out of the solidified white. Yum yum~
I really wonder how they managed to cook the poached egg so beautifully. How do they make the egg so round?
Anyway, I love the yolk and if the hollandaise sauce is slightly less sour, it would be perfect~
Pakcik had the Salmon Hash ($18). At first I wondered where’s the salmon, then we realised it’s in that container of creamy stuff. We dipped the toast in that creamy stuff, tasted it, and… OMG! It’s so delicious! Unless you are someone who doesn’t take cream, this salmon hash is definitely going to win you over.
The combination of salmon, potato and cream with mustard sauce is so good. Or at least, I love it max! We were dipping every strand of fries in the sauce until the container is wiped clean.
I am so going to Forty Hands again, and I will definitely get the Salmon Hash!
Here’s the menu to share:
