Havent been back here for a year! The whole place was packed full of people! It was like back to pre covid time! Very impressed with the decent pizza oven in a pub!

We ordered way too much food and the food portion was huge!

Nacho: so ok. The salsa and avocado on top were not spread evenly, a lot of plain empty trtilla trip.

Popcorn chicken: I didnt eat…. It was just me. I just dont like popcorn chicken

Pepperoni pizza: very amazing pizza , Little Miss W was very happy

Dukkah Cauliflower: nice one with indian spice. Just the size was double i would have imagined

Wagyu burger and cripsy pork belly were not my main. Had a bite of the pork belly. It looked and tasted like chinese siu yuk without the salt. Skin was very cripsy

Grilled octopus tentacles : very good for value for this big portion. It was very well cooked and the green sauce was nice to dip. Just wish it could be more char to give a extra grill flavour.

The whole place was packed. Food waiting time was told over an hour but all the food was about in about 45 mins to one hour. We had some nacho to nipple on so didnt feel that we waited long time.

Reowned for their unique flavour of carrot cake, made using curry powder, sweetened chye poh / preserved radish, and deshelled shrimp.
.
This gives each plate a unique layering of taste, yet it doesn't distract from the soft moist taste of the carrot cakd itself.
.
The white version is my preference here, smoky savoury spicy eggy sweet in flavour, the notes of curry and egg amd shrimp quite distinct.
.
The black version is also well loved, smoky sweet spicy eggy savoury in flavour. Here, the curry is tamed with the dark sweet soy sauce, though you still get the taste of the egg and shrimp. I find the contrast a tad jarring.

Plumped for the Breakfast Burger. Very filling and hit the spot, recommended. A little tricky to find but worth seeking out and great service.

For desserts, we decided to try something more mainstream and we went for a chocolate-based dessert, which was served in a container. There are actually quite a few layers to this dessert - the top and bottom layers are cookie crumbs, these are each accompanied by a layer of fresh cream! In the middle, you have a layer of dark chocolate cake and a layer of chocolate mousse. We liked the mousse as it was a little light, and we also liked the hazelnut taste in it. However, the dark chocolate layer above it was a little too rich and the two of us were unable to finish it! We accompanied each of the layers with some of the cookie crumbs as we liked a little crunch to go with each bite of our dessert.

Overall, while we liked the diversity of tastes in this dessert, we felt it was a little too much for two to finish! It might be easier to share this between three of four persons instead. However, given it's size, it is very worth it since it is priced at only $9.50.

Surprisingly, The Forage Cafe wasn't exceptionally crowded for lunch on a Sunday, but we still made a reservation nonetheless as we wanted to be safe! 😁

For over 10 years, this stall has been serving consistently reliable, if unassuming, plates of carrot cake.
.
Shaped in a distinct pyramid-shape, their carrot cake is soft and moist. I like the generous portion of egg within, nice.
.
I like the black version, which is a little softer, with robust sweet savoury eggy flavour. The white version is tasty too, with savoury sweet eggy flavour. Both carry a hint of smoky aroma.
.
Their chili is punchy, with a sharp spicy kick, making this all the more delicious.

We love the waffle sandwiches at The Forage Cafe and we are back today to try their beef ragu sandwich! To be honest, we were shocked at the amount of items on the plate when the dish was served - you get to experience the full waffle sandwich with minced beef in it; it is topped with a sunny side up and served with salad (with balsamic vinegar) plus a generous serving of tortilla chips! For $18.90++, it was a really huge serving and we were full after the meal!

The highlight was the waffle sandwich of course, and we like their fluffly waffles as usual! Add the honey served at the side for some sweetness on your waffles, although we felt that it was a little strange having honey together with beef ragu (and it's tomato base) in the same bite. While the tomato base used for the beef ragu went pretty well with the waffle sandwiches, we actually like the waffles with chilli cheese chicken better as we felt that the waffles were more yummy with a slab of fried chicken thigh!

Went to Five Oars Coffee Roasters about 3 months ago and ordered their Beer Battered Fish and Chips ($18), Iced White ($6) and their Five Oars waffles ($18) - image will be shown in the next post😍

Had a good experience there as it is a chill ambience and waffles were good!😇 Fish & chips however were just normal😅 However, overall ratings would be an 8/10 and would visit again to try other items on the menu!!

Classic cinnamon roll made with molasses sugar and topped with premium cream cheese frosting. The balance between the flavour and sweetness was just nice. The cinnamon roll is fragrant, soft and fluffy with the right amount of cinnamon in between the layers. It tasted good on its own and even better when served warm 》$3.40

I also tried the cinnamon apple where apple bits and sauce are poured over the roll. I love this fruity alternative for something more light and refreshing.
