Carpenter & Cook @ Lorong Kilat | Pique-Nique

The past 2 weekends' dinners with my family:

Last Saturday (25th August) at Carpenter and Cook @ Lorong Kilat, a cosy little cafe buried away in a corner of Bukit Timah. Do watch out for these signs placed outside, because it's easy to miss them by just walking pass:

They also sell these pretty vintage items which of course, are not cheap:

Cook's amazing mushroom Quiche (S$7):

Chocolate sea salt caramel tart (S$6.20) - yummy yummy mixture of sweet and salty, you'll definitely love it if you love thick and gooey caramel (Think: Mars bars). It got a little 'gelat' for me after awhile:

I can't remember what this is called and I didn't try it as well:

Most Chocolatey Chocolate cake (S$7) - and yes it really IS very thick and chocolatey! The portion's actually bigger in real life:

My parents' Hot cappuccino (S$4.80):

And my brother's Iced latte (S$5.80):

The interior's pretty small with limited seats, so it can get pretty crowded and squeezy on weekends. I don't think they take reservations on weekends (I remember reading it somewhere......), so I would recommend you to go on a weekday or reeeeaaallly early on Sats/Suns. Prices are pretty steep in my opinion, but food's good so they're worth a try! :D

And this was yesterday at Pique-Nique @ JCube:

Roasted Chicken Caesar Salad (S$14.80):

Cajun chicken (S$12.80):

Bacon Cabonara (S$16):

White wine prawn Aglio Olio (S18) - my kind of aglio olio (mmmmm!) with plenty of small prawns, but maybe just a tad too spicy:

Long Island all-day breakfast (S$12) - made up of 2 slices of toasts, half a tomato, baked beans (cooked with capsicum which I don't really fancy), ham, 2 sunny side-ups (you can choose to top up $2 to change them to scrambled/poached eggs) and a sausage:

Cappuccino (S$3 each):

Hot chocolate (S$7) with fluffy marshmallows, the combination's a little too sweet in my opinion:

And finally our desserts, Red velvet cake (S$7.80) and Chocoroco (S$8) - the 2 cakes that I've almost always been ordering because they're so good!:

    1. Hey Cherlyn! You can get them from Fairprice ^^ But usually only those big ones have them, and they get sold out vv fast (either that or get restocked really slowly), so you gotta check back now and then if you don't see them!
