we were going for a family photo taking at a studio at king george avenue on 8.9.2013. the children had this thing about windowsill pies & of course they knew there was a horne road outlet which was just short walk from the studio.
we were early for the photo shoot so we had a nice afternoon tea break at windowsill. 🙂
my daughters ordered the popular pies – a banana almond, strawberry lemon & a coconut lime vodka. all the pies were very nice really. the strawberry lemon (which my daughter said was their best) was nice too but just a little too sour for me. my favourite was the banana almond, though i agreed with the others that the lime vodka was very good, as the sourness as tempered by the vodka, and had more of a lingering after taste. 🙂
also, here my flat white was very good, latte art barrista standard, unlike the 1/2 cup very “flat” white i had at bar bar black sheep.
well overall i thought it was a really great place to chillax & catch up with friends & family, have a relaxing cuppa & enjoy a bit of good pies. i am not much into desserts so you will not see me frequenting such places. if friends want to have a cuppa together with some bites, then this is quite great place to chill out! 🙂
i was joining couple nadal fan friends to watch the nadal-gasquet & djokovic-wawrinka us open semi-finals on 7.9.2013. we were gathering at 11pm to stay up for the unearthly hour (singapore time) matches. i intended to skip dinner to limit my calorie intake as we would be munching tidbits over the long night! 🙂 anyhow my daughter wanted to go bar bar black sheep so i decided to just tag along & not eat. 🙂
my wife & daughter ordered a butter chicken & garlic naan to share. my daughter’s friend ordered a mutton biryani & i ordered a flat white for myself. i had one bite of the garlic naan, a piece of butter chicken & 1 teaspoon of biryani with mutton to taste the food.
the biryani & mutton were very average & the price was expensive for indian dishes, either S$16 or S$18. the butter chicken tasted ok but had a strange red colour. the butter chicken i had previously were all yellow curries. price was S$12. i guess this was bar price, it would be like S$8 or S$9 at most indian restaurants in serangoon. 🙂 the naan was good.
i had previously had burgers & indian at bar bar black sheep at cherry avenue (old holland road). cannot remember the prices, but i think burger was good & indian food was also good & didn’t think the price was high. here at cluny court, it occupied the previous da paolo restaurant premises with a nice courtyard ambience. i guess rents are high so the food prices.
the food i tried was limited but based on what i had & the price (my flat white i think cost S$5 & it was not good too & initially i was served a black then it was replaced by 1/2 cup flat white in a very small cup), i would not come back again!
