Wednesday, December 06, 2006Whenever I get a Singapore layover, there seems to be a routine I get into. I have breakfast at this little cafe, because the food is good, and it makes the per diems we get go so much further. And next door, is Bakerzin.
I went there for my final dinner in Singapore. (I had BBQ pork wanton noodle soup at another outlet the first day I was there, and was quite disappointed.) It's very spiffy, modern, and it had pastries in the bench display that made me want to break the glass and make off with bagfulls of cheese cake.
The seats were very strange. If you wanted to sit cross-legged then you could. And the decor was very much nature-inspired, with green trees stenciled on the chair back and tables.
It has the most amazing non-alcoholic drinks I have every tasted. This one here is a lavender violet lime soda.
And this one is the raspberry mint freeze. Doesn't look all that exciting but they're very good (and very easy to make too, should you have sorbet lying around in your freezer.)
Sadly the service was very very bad. It took 20 minutes for them to clear a dirty glass. I gave my meal order with a drink order and didn't receive it, having to tell them again when they finally cleared the glass. I was by myself, and the dining experience took almost a whole hour. I made it to the hotel half an hour before my wake up call. Not really ideal.
I'd still recommend going there though, if only because the food is really good. The chefs do the place credit. If only the waiters would lift their game, i'd spend all my money there.
