First time trying the seafood sandwich from Delifrance. Usually I would go for the tuna, chicken or egg mayo.
It tasted like the sweeter version of tuna mayo, with the addition of crab sticks.
The Delifrance in IMM has closed and so we were at the JEM outlet. The croissant is soft and slightly soggy compared to the usual. Plus, I don’t like my croissant compressed. Please handle my sandwich with more care. Thank you~
Pakcik’s is the tuna mayo which I regretted not getting.
I had black coffee to go with the sandwich. It’s quite bitter even after adding 2 sachets of sugar. This is really good in waking me up~
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~

Another cafe hunt we did last week brought us to W39 Bistro & Bakery in West Coast/Clementi area. It’s a small cafe at the corner of Jalan Mas Puteh with limited parking lots. We were there in the late afternoon so the cafe wasn’t crowded.
I had the Braised Pork Cheek Gruyere Panini with salad ($13). Love the crispy toasted panini and the melted cheese. The pork cheek was very tender with great flavor. The sandwich may look think, but it’s actually very filling. I shared half of it with Pakcik so that I could try his burger.
Pakcik had the Wagyu Burger served with thin fries ($20). Since he is scared of “blood”, I ordered medium for the doneness of the patty. He likes the fluffy bun and the juicy beef patty. Actually I think the burger was ok, except that I kept chewing chunks of salt in the patty.
As for the fries, it’s very crispy and dusted with spices. Very addictive indeed.
We had the mocha ($4.90). It’s served in a small glass which can be a little hot to hold onto initially.
Overall, it’s a nice cafe to visit. I don’t mind going again to try the egg benedict.
