So just wanna grab a coffee and chill. Not sure if they had improved, but the last time we went to Bee's Knee the coffee were either too acidic or taste like syrup. Only redeeming factor was the rich creamy glass of coconut milkshake!
Chanced on this cafe with a lovely ambience and al fresco dining area within Botanic Garden; and is one of restaurants closer to the gate at the Botanic Garden mrt. The pizza was topped with a sweet-salty combination of caramelised onions and bacon, but definitely not truffle-ly enough for my liking. And also, found the pizza dough a little too tough and chewy after awhile. Preferred the tomato-based pasta dish; the braised beef was well-cooked and really tasty 😊
Honey or lemon, I'm not sure either as they seem to use it interchangeably. If you're expecting strong zingy lemon curd then this isn't for you since it leans toward sweetness, though there is a distinct Rosemary taste. If only they taste as good as they look!
Despite its aesthetic appearance, this belongs to a type of Belgium waffles which was dense and chewy.
As much as I enjoyed the apple compote and greek yogurt pairing, the waffle was abit too much for me to handle.
Pretty decent sized pizza for its price however, overall taste was disappointing. Wished they were more generous on all the ingredients like the truffle carbonara sauce base as it was so thinly spread, we couldn't taste any hint of truffle. Not quite sure if there was cheese on this pizza as similarly we couldn't taste much. The lack of sauce & cheese was probably why the pizza turned out really dry & was tough to swallow without the help of a drink. Bacon bits were nice, savory & crisp. Rocket leaves were sparse.
A good portion. Pasta flavors were a tad flat, sauce was watery. Could do with more zesty tomato & rich lamb flavors. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't utterly disappointed. Much more after seeing they had a great swanky kitchen. 😕
Good coffee. Would drop by here to chill on a weekend afternoon for coffee & cake among nature. 🌳 Nice to see that they have alfresco seatings that's dog-friendly! 🐾
Located within The Garage at 50 Cluny Park Road accessible from Singapore Botanic Gardens are Bee's Knees and Botanico; the former an all-day dining cafe while the latter is a fine-dining restaurant opened only for dinner at the time of writing.
Currently on soft-launch phase, only pastries and tarts are available with the beverages (though there is only espresso and long black off their coffee menu) for now though they have plans to serve more substantial items such as pasta soon. The Honey Lemon Rosemary Tart is pretty much like your Lemon Meringue Tart but with interesting flavours of Rosemary running within the tart base. Lemon curd is hidden within the fluffy, airy torched meringue; though a tad solid, carries a manageable zing that is pretty subtle while the leaves come with herbed flavours yet dusted with sugar crystals for a crisp yet light sweetness. Pretty floral and definitely fits into the surrounding vibes well being in Singapore Botanic Gardens, while the place is also decked in a Wildseed Cafe-esque interior that is slightly more tropical and raw with loads of lush green and pebble elements alongside the a cemented wall that are used in the decor.
(PS: the nearest gate to The Garage at Singapore Botanic Gardens would be the Melati Gate, but I would let you guys figure out the way to the gate anyway because I am kinda selfish and it looks like a great spot to chill at after class ... 😂)
Also known as ginger flowers, this melodious blend of sweet and piquant flavours similar to that of ginger is the prelude to the main show.
The velvety confection below is undoubtedly the star. It is saccherine sweet and is a composition of cinnamon chantilly cream and dulce de leche (slowly heating sweetened milk till it turns brown). The resulting flavour could easily pass off as banana thus this explains the rationale behind the name.
It has an acquired taste that some might not be able to accept.
But do give it a try and pass your own judgement after.

The ones who love to make me work for my food yet supportive of whatever i'm doing. #gfgoals
Now does food really taste better when it looks good? Sadly, it's not the case for this dish.
Just enjoy it as it is as the yogurt will cut through the sweetness of the fruits quite nicely 🙌
