The Ascot: British Gastrogrub | Cali Cafe

Thursday's lunch with Shane at The Ascot:


Mocha (S$5.50) and Apple juice (S$4) - The menu stated 'fresh juice' but it turned out to be from some bottled apple juice:

Cold Cut Platter (S$18) - 3 types of cold cut - ham, salami ham and parma ham - served with onions, gherkins, scotch egg and homemade bread. I loooove the scotch egg (which is molted eggyolk wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs then deep-fried)! Yummmmm. I really couldn't stand the taste of the parma ham though... I almost vomited it out:

Traditional Fish & Chips (S$20) - I've never been a fan of fish & chips and I don't think I'd ever be :/

Chargrilled Steak on Turkish Bread (S$18) - with tomato, lettuce, sauteed onions, mustard and cheese. I left out the last 3 ingredients hahaha so it was just bread, lettuce, tomato and the steak. It tasted pretty okay except that the bread's a little too hard for my liking:

And this was on Monday, when we wanted to visit 1-Caramel for their brunch but they don't serve it on weekdays. Headed to Cali Cafe instead just around the corner:

California Dreamin (S$6.80) - with a mix of strawberries, oranges (but I couldn't really taste them) and bananas, perfect for a post-workout boost or a hangover:

Bratwurst Spaghetti (S$15.50) - cooked aglio olio style, with bratwurst, capsicum, zucchini and eggplant. We ordered this because they ran out of fresh prawns for our Prawn Aglio Olio, and there's nothing special/fancy to it:

Pulled Pork Bun with Homemade BBQ Gravy (S$11.50) - shredded pork shoulder on grilled homemade bun, served with salad and fries. The BBQ gravy goes really well with the pork imo!:

Breakfast Pizza (S$23.50) - MY FAVOURITE!! Consists of baked tomatoes, cheese, sausage, bacon, mushrooms and sunny side-ups. Anything with runny eggyolks is goooooddddd :9 There were supposed to be 2 eggyolks according to the picture shown, but we were only given one. I feel cheated:
