Nestled within Singapore Botanic Gardens is the second outlet of the ever popular Food For Thought cafe. Personally, I have always been a huge fan of them since they are well known for their huge and readily-made affordable dishes. Their to-die-for pancakes laced with generous amount of sweet gula melaka syrup, awesomely good brunch menus and let’s not even talk about their desserts which I always find myself doing nothing but staring through the glass panel that separates me from them!
Since it’s the season to be jolly, what could be better to celebrate Christmas with a scrumptious brunch affair with your loved ones? Surely I wasn’t the only “smart” person that think that way because it was really crowded when we arrived by noon. Either way, the cafe’s free sitting so expect to share your space with someone else okay?
Brunch came in the forms of Basic Works ($7.00), House Works ($12.00) and Full Works ($18.00) which are just increment of more food if you really want to know. Personally, I like to customise my brunch and I am just glad Food For Thought allows that. Two thick slabs of toast, nicely sauteed garlic mushroom, a good dose of good old scrambled eggs and that’s how ZX loves her brunch.
Their scones on the other hand may looked unpalatable compared to hotel standards and it looked even harder to take a nice shot of it but trust me, it’s one of THE BEST SCONES I had in years! It was even made perfect pairing with their fresh light cream. Gosh, I just wished I had extra cash to spare for more!
Another must-try is their Creamy Mushroom Soup ($6.00). For ZX, it’s a must have every time she drops by.
Ever since my last visit to Burger Shack, I’ve been in love with pulled pork burgers! I have to say the Slow Roasted Pulled Pork Burger ($8.00) was tender and coupled with that smoky homemade BBQ sauce and violia! You have one awesome burger to munch already!
Much like you see in the show, Ratatouille ($4.00) is a French way of stewing vegetables. Served piping hot and in a stew of tomato sauce, this is as sweet as it gets! Although I would prefer my veggies sliced and arranged neaty just like how it was done in the movie.
Looking for a nice place to have a wonderful weekend brunch? Why not consider heading down to Food For Thought at Botanic Gardens instead and end off your lovely brunch affair with a sun bathing stroll by the park.
