Cafe Hopping to Brunches Cafe with Quaker, Chic Vintage Cafe and Bakery at Rangoon Road

Surrounded by chic vintage decorations, retro furnitures, sumptuous food and if you’re lucky to get the special seat in the house, you’ll be enjoying your meal on a sofa set converted from a mini-cooper. I wasn’t that lucky that day, but still it was a delightful lunch at Brunches Cafe along Rangoon Road, Little India.  The purpose of my visit was to check out their special limited time only menu, in collaboration Quaker Singapore.

The Cafe

Brunches Café serves All-day Breakfast Menu, Gourmet Sandwiches, Waffles, Coffee, Tea and other Beverages to the funky café-goers. They also serve limited High-tea sets suited for those who wants to gather, relax, chill and have light nibbles in the afternoon. Bakery and Pastries are freshly made daily in their kitchen.

Power Up Your Day with Quaker

In collaboration with Quaker, Brunches Cafe is now serving three special items in their menu. This menu won’t be around for long, so go try them before they stop serving these yummy and wholesome food.

Creamy Chicken Risotto, $15

Very well prepared and a good mix of risotto and Quaker Oats for Rice, adding a little more oomph into every bite. I was pleasantly that I actually enjoyed this dish a lot. I don’t usually order risotto but this one I like!

Quaker Sweet Corn Oatmeal Porridge, $12,50

Don’t get turned off when you see “oatmeal porridge”, it’s not at all tasteless nor boring! In fact, this porridge will make the young and young at heart go “ohhhhh…“. Served with sautéed asparagus, mushroom and a sunny side-up, this dish is suitable for vegetarian. Try this for a hearty lunch that’ll keep your tummy happy and filled for many hours.

Quaker Multigrain Cereal Parfait, $6.50

I’ve been eyeing on all the pretty creations and postings of variety of parfait on Instagram and always wanted to try make my own. But lazy me, always ended up with rojak bowl of everything in it and the serving isn’t worth snapping a photo of. This however was nice to look at, and nice to eat too. Layers of Quaker Multigrain Cereal, greek yoghurt and topped with mixed berries, this is a nice alternative to wrap up a hearty meal.

A hearty lunch

It was a relaxing and slow lunch, catching up with fellow blogger from Lemon-film Blog. Not sure how we managed to clear the plates, but we did finish everything you see below after almost 2 hours. That of cos include the mandatory photo taking especially when dining at such exquisite cafe for the first time.

Go check out Brunches Cafe one day and do give the special Quaker menu a try before the promotion ends.

Indulge in Halal Mexican Food at Afterwit Cafe with Quaker Singapore

I wish for more time, money and tummy space for cafe hopping because I miss taking photos of food and relaxing chill out meal time. Most of my meals now are done in a messy, chop chop and eat kind of setting. That’s why when given opportunities to slow down and just enjoy the moment, I will surely jump onto it.

That day when I had a slow paced relaxing lunch with two beautiful mums and we were treated with wholesome halal Mexican food.

Situated along North Bridge Road, housed a cozy cafe that could be easily missed if you aren’t searching for it. But if you walk close enough, you’ll be greeted by a huge red framed door, two barrels, some cactus and a Mexican hat. Yup! That’s Afterwit cafe.

Start the meal with selection of drinks from their periodic table of drink menu, or check out their special Quaker menu for some interesting dessert drinks. That day we tried both the Quaker Apple Pie and Quaker Cookie Monster ($8 each). I’m a cookie girl so that glass of blended Quaker Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, Fresh Milk and Vanilla worked well for me. Those tiny cookies on top are added bonus if you’re a cookie fan like me!

This serving of Quaker Quesadillas con Pato ($14) can be a starter or a main dish, you decide! Great for sharing with friends over a cozy afternoon of tea. This was my favourite that day, filled with duck meat, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, onions, Quaker oats for rice, all grilled within the 12″ flour tortillas. Served with guacamole, Pico de Gallo and sour cream.

At Mexican cafe, you must never miss having some burritos. And that day we tried two and also a serving of Quaker Huevos Rancheros ($16), poached eggs on mushroom quesadillas.

Shown in the photo below: Quaker Burritos ($15) served with our choice of Almuerzo (Musrhrooms) and Carne Picante (Roast Beef).

When the food were all served, we all knew we had over ordered! Three ladies and one little boy weren’t enough to clear these plates of Quaker inspired Mexican goodness. But we were told we must surely leave some space for at least one small piece of Quaker Chichen Itza ($12).

Just looking at the photo of this yummilicious dessert makes me regret not leaving more space that day for one more serving! This toasted butter brioche was super crunchy and adds a great punch at first bite. Topped with vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, crushed Quaker honey nut oatmeal cookies and slices of bananas. Mmmm…. I must go back to have this again!

All the above featured dishes are part of a special Quaker menu that is available at Afterwit till end of 2015, so you’ve got lots of time to go try them out.
