TGIF! It’s #FoodFri again on YQtravelling.
I feel like I do not write enough about Singapore so here’s an introduction of a nice cafe in the peaceful neighborhood of Tiong Bahru–Drips Bakery Cafe.
I found out about the place from J who has impeccable taste when it comes to nice food.
My breakfast platter #2 (S$15.80++) was gigantic. I especially love the buttered toast. The bread was sweet and the butter salty but creamy.
The sausage was a little unfortunate though. It was limp and the sausage skin was too tough to saw off with my knife. :(
The caffè latte was normal and it wasn’t burnt, which to my untrained palate is good enough.
Enough about the food (Wait a minute, is this not #FoodFri?), I want to show you the rest of the cafe.
The cafe is on the ground floor of a shophouse. In the front are the counters for food and drinks, the middle is where the table and chairs are while deeper inside there are couches.
At the coffee section, there was a sign saying: “TRAVEL”. I was wondering why it was there. I think it’s because the romance of travelling.
The walls were decorated with paintings that were available for sale. Most of them were semi-abstract and priced too high for me to support the artist.
Bonus tourist attraction
There’s a temple dedicated to the Monkey God from the Chinese classic Journey to the West at the corner of the road.
I wasn’t sure why Sun Wu Kong would be deified since he’s a made up character. At the altar, there were figurines of the Monkey God.
Drips Bakery Cafe is at 82 Tiong Poh Road, #01-05, S(160082).
The nearest MRT is at Outram Station (green line) and it’s just a short walk away. Checkout gothere.sg’s map.
