Perhaps this place was a kitchen wannabe that became a cafe instead? At first sight, it actually sounded painful, like someone being whacked. But fortunately, the experience was not.
The old place, Pit Stop, was one of the few restaurants to have a parking bay for bicycles. This restaurant is smaller and has used the space for seating. Also at one glance, one could see who needed attention – gone were the walls and blind spots where customers had trouble getting the attention of the wait staff. Alcoholic drinks are also served now, making it more of a hangout place after a meal perhaps, and helping them meet the rent.
I’d say the draw of the place is the location first, food second. I come here so I can pretend that I’m not really that close to civilisation for about 2 hours anyway.
This is along the Punggol Park Connector so one can enjoy a ride and fresh air before having something to eat, which was what we did. Or alternatively, one could chill over an evening meal, some drinks and enjoy the lovely view and cool evening breeze. I’m putting this on my keeper’s list.
