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.

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.

Crunchy Baked Chicken Cheese Balls with Oats

I used to have one picky eater and one who’s willing to try everything we feed her. But now the littest who used to eat everything is beginning to pick on her food too. When either my hub or me have got extra time in the kitchen, we like to experiment with new recipes and ways to make our meal more interesting for the girls. So I took the opportunity to experiment with oats and made an interesting discovery!

These crunchy baked chicken cheese balls with oats was a hit with both my girls! And the best part is that they are consuming healthy oats at the same time. I’m a happy mum and this recipe is a keeper in my books. And for the record, all the amount stated in my recipe list below are based on estimates ok, because when I cook, I don’t use any form of measurement but my own feel. I call it the feeliment. coughs
