bookmark_borderLunch At Cedele, Wheelock Orchard Road

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.


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.

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…

It was rather a heavy downpour when I reached Orchard Road from Raffles City Shopping Centre. I was cursing my luck as there was a flash flood on previous week and I was fearing that it might happen again (but luckily it didn’t!). Restricted to indoors only, I made my way to Wheelock – via underpass – to hunt for some food to feed my hunger.


And that’s when I remembered that there was a good restaurant inside there, all thanks to my friend who brought me there on my previous Singapore trip. A restaurant named Cedele.


Situated on third floor of Wheelock (a shopping mall along Orchard Road), Cedele serves some simple yet healthy western food. Ranging from soups to salads as well as pastas, main meals and desserts, the ingredients they used are all fresh and natural.

As it was rather late afternoon, there were only a few customers when I was there. Shown to my seat at a quiet corner, I begun flipping thru their menu and set upon what to have.

Mango Lassi

To quench my thirst, I ordered a Mango Lassi. It was chilled, thick yet smooth but somehow, it was rather tasteless. It would be perfect if they add more mango pulp in it to give it a distinctive flavour.

Penne in White Mushroom Cream Sauce

For the main, Penne in White Mushrooms cream sauce was my choice. The pasta was cooked perfectly – ala al dente – while the cream sauce, unlike carbonara sauce, was light and tasty, just the way I like it to be.

Best of all, there were abundance of beef bacon bits and mushrooms in it. A perfect comfort food for cold rainy day, if you ask me.

Caramelised Banana Pancake with Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

To complete the meal, instead of their sinful-looking cakes, I opted for something else; Caramelised Banana Pancake with a scoop of Blueberry Cheesecake ice cream. Slight crisps on the outside while light and fluffy in the middle with caramelised bananas hidden in between, the pancakes went well with the ice cream and chocolate drizzle.

Overall, it was a satisfying meal. The price was reasonable as their food were all notably good. This coupled with warmth quiet ambience made it all warrant for another visit.
