As we were standing along the busy street of Orchard Road, we were thinking on what to eat for our lunch. We wanted something quick since it was our last day and we needed to rush back before heading to the airport. Several suggestions on what to dine were thrown around but none were accepted. Not wanting to waste anymore time, I brought my friend to Cedele at Wheelock. I’ve dined there a couple of times and based on my previous experience, the food was alright and it was affordable.

Drinks

We arrived just before noon time and the crowd was still at minimal and we got to choose our own table. A couple of scroll through the menu, we decided on what to order. The drinks were normal but my friend complained about the Organic Soy Milk (SGD$4) being weird. There’s nothing much to say about my Iced Cappuccino with Irish Cream (SGD$6.50).

Double Mushroom Chicken Soup

The first to arrive was the Double Mushroom Chicken Soup (SGD$10). In honesty, I didn’t expect to be like this… in such presentation. There’s no sight of cream or milk in it. Nevertheless, it was good – hearty and comforting just like those home-boiled chicken soup. The bowl was filled with decent amount of ingredients such as shredded chicken breast, (portobello and oyster) mushrooms and mixed vegetables. The soup came with complimentary bread which was available at bread counter.

Beef Bacon Works Sandwich

For mains, I opted for Beef Bacon Works Sandwich (SGD$14.80) while my friend ordered Beef Aglio Olio Pasta (SGD$16.90).

Beef Bacon Works Sandwich

In the sandwich, there were the usual veges, crispy bacons and beef patty. Although the beef patty was cooked thoroughly, it was still alright but tad bland. I liked inclusion of wholegrain mustard as the sourish spicy paste suited well with the beef patty.

Beef Aglio Olio Pasta

The pasta dish was simple and light. The spaghetti was cooked perfectly with good amount of chopped garlics to be found in and around the dish. There’s bird eye chillis to give a little kick.

Beef Aglio Olio Pasta

The sliced beef steak was just alright – chew tender texture. I guess with such thinly sliced beef steak, it is hard to achieve proper doneness.

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

To end of our lunch, we shared an Apple Cinnamon Pancakes. For SGD$12.90, the freshly-made pancakes were decent in size filled with chunks of sliced apples. There were two generous scoops of ice cream (with one of them being Blueberry Cheesecake flavour). The fragrant scent of cinnamon was subtle yet it provided mild bitter-sweetness in every bite of the pancakes. The sweet sliced apples were slight crunch in the middle gving it a different complexion to the soft fluffy pancakes.

All in all, the meal was alright. They weren’t outstanding but they were just nice – simple and unprententious. Food aside, the ambiance was comfortable, ideal for casual dining but there’s a stale fried oil note lingered in the restaurant. It has been there since my first visit and I find it rather unpleasant most of the time. Or maybe it’s just me only…

  4. Sean : Yeah. Maybe it was the bad ventilation that caused the smell. The beef patty was alright though it wasn’t the best. Hehe.

    yusann : LOL! True enough. It’s more of ice cream and cake… a flat one. Hehe.

    Apple Foodees : Hi! Thanks for dropping by. Yea, the pancakes were good. :D

  5. Gosh…those sandwiches look like they’re to die for! Yummmmm!!!! I went to one place here the other day – they did not have sandwiches. In fact, we do not have any nice place here with such nice sandwiches, and no, we do not even have Subway. Tsk! Tsk! I had a burger instead – post on that coming soon.

  6. suituapui : Haha! Yes, they were quite good. Instead of buying, maybe you can D.I.Y and add lots of stuff in your sandwich. Hehe.
