Riders Cafe

Date: 02.07.2015

This is super duper back dated, but if I don't blog about it, I 不甘愿 you see.  And no worries, this special cafe is still operating and doing well ^.^

Riders Cafe is one of the most romantic cafe  I had been to.  It's tranquil environment is something you can't find in other cafes.
Valentine's Day is less than a month away, so can consider.....

In front of Riders Cafe is this scenic sight.....

And behind, a stable.  So that's where the cafe's name came from I suppose.

Somebody was on "guard duty" at the entrance during our visit.

I took a few pics of this cute grouchy fellow.

A small flight of terracotta stairs that leads to the cafe.

Though non-aircon, it was cooling, thanks to the cottage high ceiling.

We sat at the balcony, overlooking the stable.
Breathing in and out (废话, else die already), no funny smell at all from the stable, in fact the air was filled with mellow fragrance from the greens.

We sat back and relax, truly and totally relax while waiting for our orders to come.
For the first time, I was secretly hoping our food would come later.  I enjoyed looking out doing nothing.

Lamb Shank S$29.00
Meat was tender with thick savory sauce with beans and potatoes.  Portion was so big that we couldn't finish.

Riders Burger S$18.00
Big fat beef patty was pink and tender inside that "kiap" with tomato slices, lettuce, saute onions, ham, cheese, pickles, and of course, bread buns which were warm and soft, yummy big time.  Fries were normal which really filled us up.

Death By Chocolate S$13.00
Super rich chocolate cake in a pool of melted dark chocolate with 2 big scoops of vanilla ice-cream.  It was highly recommended as their signature dessert.  Not bad but gets too jialet half way for semi-senior citizens like us >.<  lolxx....  Portion was huge, sharing with 4 pax was not a problem.

Another word for tranquil is 鸟不生蛋, which means it's far far away from the main road, no nearby bus or MRT, can't reach even if you could jog.  Directing a cab in can be a problem, getting out is another headache.  If you drives, all problem solved!

Despite of being so inaccessible, I heard that reservations are needed to secure a table during weekends.  Do let me know if you like this place after your visit :)
