Chye Seng Huat Hardware

Finally, Mrs Eio made it to  Chye Seng Huat Hardware. She noticed that many people in the cafe are taking photos. Let’s join the crowd!   
Mr Eio likes the Latte at CSHH as its not too acidic. But Mrs Eio finds it too milky & lacks “kick” for her. Nevertheless, everyone has different preference for their cuppa. 🙂

 
Barista at work! Make sure you don’t wait in vain while placing your order. There’s a queue for collecting your coffee orders & a separate queue for ordering your food. They are just next to each other so Mrs Eio went to the wrong queue while waiting to place her order at the cashier. 

  
 
Interesting concept. Rather crowded during lunch time. So Mrs Eio did not take as much photos as she would like to… She likes the window grilles. Lol. 

   
The Papa pork burger is interesting. Charcoal bun with pork patty served with wasabi chips. The patty is on the sweet side mainly due to the pineapple jam on top of it. 

 
Yes. They grill the burger bun! Mrs Eio thinks S$18 is consider expensive as the side dish is just chips (not fries or salad). 

   
Forest of Mushroom on toast is a letdown. It’s like having thick cream of mushroom on a simple toast. The poached egg white are rather tough in texture. S$15 for this dish. Mrs Eio will sure skip this if she ever visit CSHH again. 

   
EL enjoyed the chips though…

    
So much of the food… Mrs Eio went on to explore the second level. 

 
Apparently, part of the level 2 is used to conduct craft workshops & the Tyrwhitt General company sells leather & other items. You may visit their website to find out more about their craft workshop. 

Website: thegeneralco.sg

This company is not related to CSHH. 

   
 
This is where they conduct the craft workshop. Probably for 10-15 pax. You may sign up as individuals too. 

   

 Leather pouch – one can make this during the workshop. 

   
 
The C- platform is a coffee school under CSHH. 

 

All in all, do explore beyond level 1 to make your trip worthwhile. 🙂

Wheeler’s Yard for El’s birthday

Experience drinking your cuppa or having a meal in an industrial warehouse. Wheeler’s yard- a bicycle-themed cafe. 

One will not miss the cool blue front gate when you visit Wheeler’s Yard. Mrs Eio is sure many people will take photos in front of it so did Eio kids & herself. 

  

Mrs Eio is hoping to visit this cafe for quite some time. Eios finally got a chance to do so & celebrate El’s birthday at Wheeler’s yard. 
    
 

Inside the cafe… Helmets, bicycles, bicycle parts (with labels) …   

  

Have you ever place a bicycke on your dining table? How about placing 2-3 at the same time. Lol. 

  

Counter to order food. Self-service. Eios arrived early that day. Many people came after Eios ordered their food. Phew… Eio kids were very hungry. At least, They have to wait too long for their lunch.  
There’s a number of big table so one can have gatherings & short meetings in this cafe. 

 Em fascinated by the bicycle parts….   

The food are nice. Prawn Aglio Olio is tasty & not too salty. 

Mrs Eio & Eio kids love the truffle fries! Smells Good. Mr Eio goes for the Hanger’s steak. The portion is quite big. The mushroom sauce for the beef is impressive.     

You can see the mushrooms in the sauce. 

 

Yard’s Chicken burger. Mrs Eio likes their hamburger bun as its toasted. The meat patty is minced, not chicken fillet or whole piece of chicken breast. 

  

Lovely Miss El Eio…

  

Celebrating El’s birthday makes Mrs Eio teary… People who knows what Eios’ been through the past years can testify on God’s grace in this little girl’s life. Mrs Eio is so thankful that El is growing well now & she looks just like any other children of her age in terms of size right? 
  

Blessed birthday to El. 👏👏👏

  

Mrs Eio quite like their waffles. The taste, texture & thickness are good but it’s abit cold (probably due to aircon or the icecream) when they serve this dessert. 
   

One can either opt to dine in the aircon area or outdoor near the warehouse that Wheeler’s Yard is selling bicycles & accessories. 
    

An inspiration from them on how to do planting at Mrs Eio’s front balcony. 
  

Bicycle “carriage” behind or in front. Guess the price???

  

Eio kids get to sit on these barber chairs that exist since their great grandfather’s time.     

Busy Mr Eio… While Mrs Eio & Eio kids are exploring…
  

This is a cafe Mrs Eio won’t mind revisiting. If you love bicycles, old school & vintage stuff… this is probably a place you wanna drop by.

Don’t say Mrs Eio never warn you… If you are driving there, beware of “summon aunties”. Hee hee…

To-Gather Cafe

Eios has been to this cafe many times. Eio kids like to visit To-gather & sometimes it’s for their couples time. 

To-gather’s food is good & price-wise quite decent for a cafe. Eios’ at To-gather again for their Sunday lunch. 

Mushroom soup. A “MUST-order” soup for Em when he visits restaurants or cafes. His favorite!

   

Mrs Eio likes their coffee. Err… Hope the cup can be bigger. Lol. 

  

Seafood Aglio olio. Eio kids love speghetti. This is spicy but since they were hungry, it’s a good opportunity to push their ability to tahan (endure) spicy food further. 

  

Hungry guys…
  

Very very hungry girl…

  

Long queue…
  

Eliz kept saying,” it’s very hot…” But she just continued eating.

  

And drinking water…
  

Eio kids “all-time-favorite”- French fries. Think Eliz really loves the speghetti. She’s using the fries to scoop it into her mouth. If she didn’t like it, she would not eat it at all after having an alternative. 

  

Chicken chop. The sauce on the chicken has a strong pineapple taste. Not sure if you agree with Mrs Eio. She prefers saltish sauce for chicken chop instead of a sweet citrus taste. Salad & the dressing are good. Fries… Are fries lor. Crispy. Heehee.   

First time ordering the matcha lava cake. Mrs Eio is kind of disappointed as it’s really too sweet. 
  

There’s no doubt Mrs Eio will visit To-gather cafe again as some of her activities revolve around that area. Seems like they are taking in reservations these days. If you are keen to visit, their address & website are as follows…

Jubilee coffee house & bar

Mrs Eio’s good friend posted on Jubilee coffee house & bar on their fb during the Jubilee weekend. Yes, it’s time for her to try it out…

 Retro theme but it has a oriental feel not just because of the music they play & decor but the food as well. 

Don’t mind Mrs Eio saying… In short, she thinks Jubilee serves a combination of food one can find in a western food stall plus Chinese tze char stall. 


Well… Sad to say there’s no waffles for Mrs Eio. They serves Chinese desserts (like those you can find in kopitiam), cake & some pastries. 



Coffee is not bad…

Chicken chop portion is quite big. 


It’ll be better if they can serve the curry chicken & rice separately. 😊

  
If you are trying to getaway from the crowd in shopping malls, restaurants, foodcourt and don’t mind paying more for the food to eat in peace. This will be a good place to chill & relax.

The Bark Cafe

The Bark Cafe is located next to the Changi chapel & museum.  If you are looking for a place for Al fresco dining, this is a cafe that you should give a try.   

 Mrs Eio visited the Changi Chapel & museum before heading to the cafe for lunch. Good place for an educational trip for Eio kids when they are slightly older. 
   
  

No air-con but the dining area is rather cosy despite the heat. 

  
 
Ordered latte, chapel cheesy burger & of course, not forgetting waffle for dessert. 

   
Mrs Eio was really impressed by their chapel cheesy burger. One of the best beef patty ever- juicy & succulent. One thing Mrs Eio must highlight is that the chef toasted the burger bread which makes this dish even yummier. 

    
 
The waffle tasted good but it’s kind of too thin. Hence it gets soggy very quickly with the icecream, fruits & syrup.   
 Hmm… This cafe is worth re-visiting. 😊

Milk & Honey Gelato @ Bedok

Yes!!! Mr & Mrs Eio had sneaked out of the house after Eio kids fell asleep for the night. Mrs Eio trusted that Eio kids were in good hands of her sister. So, off they went to a cafe nearby – Milk & Honey Gelato. 

  
It’s really crowded that night but the love birds managed to find seats. Mrs Eio waited with great anticipation for the waffles. 

 
Well… You can see from Mrs Eio mega heavy eye bags & intense dark eye rings that she’s really done for the day… Hopefully for the rest of the week she supposed!!!

   
Mr & Mrs Eio often passed by this cafe when they sneaked out for Mrs Eio’s favorite minced pork noodles (bak cho mee) at Bedok block 85 market. After realizing that this cafe is open till late night. The couple decided to give it a try. 

 
The texture of the waffles are good. Crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside. Err… But The taste didn’t really suits Mrs Eio. It’s kind of too blend. Nevertheless the waffles go well with the icecream. The sweetness of this desert comes entirely from the icecream, not the waffles (if you get what she means).  Mrs Eio had chosen pistachios & sesame flavoured icecream. The milk & honey flavour is too sweet for her. 

  
Hmm… So why is this cafe worth sharing on Mrs Eio’s blog? Simply because it’s a good place to chill out in the east (near her home) after a long day. If Eio kids ever wakes up in the middle of the night looking for Mrs Eio, they can “zoom” back home asap! This cafe opens till late night, so Mrs Eio can lament to Mr Eio about her long day… at a cafe flowing with milk & honey…  Lol!

Lots Gourmet

Located at an inconspicuos area in the east, Mrs Eio is delighted to find another cafe that she can hang out in the afternoon. 

 
Mrs Eio loves ice lemon tea serves this way as she can determine the level of sweetness.   

 
Decent coffee…    

Prawn aglio olio. Nice scrap cheese on top. 


Lots beef burger. Mrs Eio thought this dish will be more “spectacular” if the chef can deep fry or at least oven/ toast the burger buns.    
 
Good service. If you need an afternoon break, LOTS has stuff in store for u…

Nice waffle at Refuel (Bedok Reservior) 

Mrs Eio was in need of a cup of coffee again days ago. Yes, she went to one cafe in the East – Refuel Cafe. 

 
  
 
Rustic concept. Spaghetti & coffee are average. But Mrs Eio is pleasantly surprised to with the texture & taste of their waffle!!!

   

    
Mrs Eio wanna eat waffle that day but her body was also crying out for protein. Wallah!!! Refuel serves smoked salmon, scrambled eggs & greens on waffle. This really made her day! Well, as some might know, as of now Mrs Eio’s favorite waffle is from Hatters street cafe (Hougang). She tried other cafe & didn’t find the texture & taste that awe her so she didn’t expect much from Refuel. As you can see, mrs Eio had changed the scrambled eggs to sunny side up because she simply needed to see the egg yolk & swollow them down her throat. Lol. That’s how desperate she was for protein & something rich that day. She can be quite picky & hard to handle at times. Haha!!

    
Ta-da!!! When Mrs Eio “plunged” her butter knife into the waffle. Wow, it’s crispy. After she took her 1st bite, she couldn’t stop eating the waffle. Unlike some cafes that serve crispy waffle but it’s hard & dry on the inside or some waffles are simply too soft & chewy. Refuel’s waffle is crispy on the outside & just slightly moist & soft on the inside. Lovely! It’s the texture that she likes. The staff said they serve the same waffle for ice-cream waffle dessert. So if you order ice-cream waffles, they should taste the same according to them. 

  Mrs Eio don’t mind visiting Refuel again for re-fuel if she needs one but she’ll probably “zoom in” for the waffles only. 😊

Time Table Cafe

Time Table Cafe.

As you can see from Mrs Eio’s dark eye ring, she really needs a cup of coffee to “tackle” Eio Kids later.
   
 
Nice ambience & cosy for a weekday afternoon.

 

Mrs Eio tried the cappuccino. Quite full bodied & bitter but she prefers lighter & slightly more acidic coffee. 

   
  

The waffles (S$8.80) are moist on the inside. The cafe staff said they make the waffles using the waffle maker but it’ll be more appealing if they can work on the presentation. The dark chocolate ice-cream taste good though.
