We initially planned to dine in at Jamie Oliver’s but having spotted it crowded and with the usual queue outside, we decided to look further in at The Orchard Forum. I have been in Singapore for almost six years now and this was the first time I ever set foot on this enclave. lol.
I was quite surprised that there seem to be a lot of good food options inside, but we were looking for some good coffee and snacks, not really on the heavy side. Lucky enough, we spotted this quaint nook which seemed enticing.
The thing with cafes now, interior and style are indeed the top elements. Most crowd go for the instagram worthy cafe and food. Benjamin Browns would definitely pass those qualifications.
I love fusion food and really find enjoyment in it. BB did not fail me.
This fusion of a french fries! Beef Rendang fries which is crispy sliced potatoes with gooey and tasty rendang gravy that go with the generous serving of minced beef, melted cheese and topped off with a dollop of sour cream. I can just indulge on it, it was really good but of course heavy. I would recommend it for three pax.
I am such a huge fan of anything salted egg and thus this one too sure wins my palate. There was just the right amount of saltiness to it, nothing really overpowering with pieces of bread that go with it. Yet another good nibbles.
Equally tasty order that night was the Quesadillas with beef, homemade salsa, mozzarella and sour cream. In addition to all these mouth watering snacks, they also serve “over the top” shakes, and by over the top I literally, really mean it. So much so that it is overflowing… =))
Told ya! They are a bunch of overflowing mug of goodness which make for a sweet tooth, milkshake loving, dessert connoisseur’s guaranteed selection. We were definitely mesmerized by the presentation and couldn’t wait until all our meals were over until we could give it a try. I ordered the Thai Milk Tea shake which was good although of course nothing really outstanding than your usual thai milk tea, they just made it in ice blended form. As for the coffee avocado, indeed a chef’s recommendation and I would second that as the balance of it was really satisfying. The coffee taste is not too overpowering, it was really a good ending to this fusion fare.
Would I recommend this bistro and bakery? Oh definitely. And I wouldn’t mind coming back again to it when I get to be in the infamous Orchard.
