a RI friend organised a makan & coffee eat-drink together on 2.11.2015. ^^

first we had the recently buzzing  ah hoe meepok at blk 710, clementi west street 2 by the japanese 18yr old girl & her father.

after a very satisfying bowl of meepok dry & soup, we proceeded to coffee nowhere (or pronounced coffee now here) at west coast plaza.

it’s the singapore outlet of a cafe that started in johore only 2 years back in dec2013. the name is supposed to evoke like when you are lost (nowhere) & then you are found (now here), i guess discovery of a place you have a connection with?? whatever!

they have 4 different ways of brewing coffee etc, and also sells coffee beans, coffee related products & offer barista training.

the same guy that brought me to aeiou for a good cuppa. we been hanging out a bit lately.

it happens to be a monday, and monday happens to be the day with 1 for 1 promotion. we ended up ordering 9 coffees for about S$35, not bad!

(btw i think the normal price is too ex w/o the one for one promo & i would not come here as there are so many good coffee places)

we were reading the promo advertising panel at the entrance to the cafe & the website but our ancient brains did not quite follow. it’s always easier to just ask. although in this case the servers (more than 1) seem just as confused how the promo works, whether we need to first spend S$30.

anyhow we got the promo instantly so not complaining except that we had 9 & ordered 5 coffees + 4 free, and only thought we should have gotten 5 free afterwards (i know what my son will say)…what a good laugh…hahaha!

i am quite surprised the coffee was really good. my flat white was very smooth & coffee had rich aroma. i had a very good flat white at habitat in upper thomson (my family favourite but just first time for me). we were rushing & bought takeaway so i did not take photos. i thought coffee nowhere was about the same.

the other great coffee place i had good coffee –

carpenter & cook has great pastries & assembly coffee has a great lemon meringue pie.

went to a friend’s relative’s wake at jalan rajah on 11.1.2015. was quite sad at the time.

a close friend & i left after the rites. at the carpark i was looking across at wheeler’s yard at lor ampas. we decided to go for a cuppa.

i have read about this place. my daughters had been there on separate occasions, and some friends had also posted on Facebook.

place was spacious & airy. i should add a really cool place to chill & unwind.

it was 5pm on a sunday & only a few tables were occupied. my friend bought 2 flat whites, & we walked outside & picked a high table facing sungei whampoa which flows into kallang river.

coffee was good, but no better than dutch colony, assembly coffee or chye seng huat. i think chye seng huat serves the best flat white, followed by dutch colony.
