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.

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

  • 1 big portobello mushroom (diced)
  • 1 small stalk of cauliflower (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp of flour
  • 2 tbsp of grated mozzarella cheese

  7. Bake chicken ball in oven for 20-25 minutes, beware of popping cheese!

After this successful introduction of oatmeal to my girls, I am going to experiment with more dishes just so the family can get a little bit of nutrients for better heart and better source of fiber.
