Antoinette @ Penhas Road

Antoinette is the brainchild of Chef Pang, who now helms both the kitchen and the Sugar Daddy group which manages Antoinette and Pique Nique. While drawn by the opulence of their decor, I was hesitant to try Antoinette as I thought the prices must be out of my league for a casual dinner. I’m happy to report from this visit that it’s manageable!

Plain duo of pancakes, $8. Prices have risen a little since I was last here, still as yummy, fluffy and crisp around the edges though! Don’t judge me for ordering the same things, I like these a lot! There’s a slightly heavier twinge of citrus this round, which I don’t remember used to be there, almost as if I’m eating orange pancakes.

I’m so glad I’m here before the brunch crowd kicks in. Fft is better without the rush of crowds.

Side of Scramble Eggs with cream, $4. I can smell the cream as they set it down on my table. Eggy goodness but I personally would like less cream!

I’m halfway through my meal and I’m full already, tsk. Happy 2012 everyone!

Food for Thought @ 8Q

My search for comfort food on a cold angsty day led me to Food for Thought @ 8q. I’ve had their pancakes with mixed berries and plain ones previously and was instantly in love with it. Luckily for me, the place wasn’t packed on a Monday afternoon. (Note: Brunch menu available only from 9-530pm!) Reservations are highly recommended for dinner & weekends, though I have something to say about that at the end of this post.

The interior of this casual cafe is charmingly decorated in white, with high ceilings, glass jar lights and a corner selling little knicks and knacks.
