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.

Instant Food: CP Spaghetti and Chicken Sauce

Another lazy-to-cook-day for Miss Makan, this time she tried the CP Spaghetti and Chicken Sauce instant meal. Spaghetti is an art to master, till today, Miss Makan hasn’t master the right technique is making her ideal pasta. Miss Makan is not saying that this instant food is on par with the pasta she makes, but this is quick to cook and fast to eat.

Beside the serving being too small for Miss Makan, there isn’t much complain about this instant meal. The sauce with minced chicken is decent when eaten hot. Texture of the spaghetti is edible.

Personally, Miss Makan will not eat this again cause she prefers the other CP brand instant meals more than this.

CP brand products are available at most supermarkets.

Instant Food: CP Stir-fried Chicken and Basil Rice

Miss Makan stays at home a lot and is a very lazy person, especially when its time to fill her tummy. On days when her cooking mojo is low, she turns to instant food for quick-fix lunch. One of her favourite brand of such meals is by CP Food.

Basil Chicken Rice is Miss Makan’s favourite from the lot. She stocks them up in her freezer whenever she sees a promotion for them at the supermarket. She likes it for the spiciness and the tender minced chicken thigh meat.

Meals like this takes only 3 mins to prepare and 3 mins to gobble down. Not too shabby for a less than $4 quick meal at home.

CP brand products are available at most supermarkets.

Tang Tea House (Jalan Kayu)

Was super excited when I first learned about the opening of Tang Tea House at Jalan Kayu from my Facebook feed! Thanks Kassidy for the post! 😛 Now we can finally satisfy my weird once-in-a-blue-moon dim sum craving near our house and in comfort of air con cafe!

We used to have to drive to Bedok area to get decent Halal Dim Sum, now its just a 5 mins drive from our place. Run by the same people from the Bedok branch, Tang Tea House has got pretty decent Dim Sum to satisfy those cravings. And the best part is they have my favorite Golden Sand Pau!
