Another gem located in the western part of Singapore, On The Table serves a wide selection of food, ice-cream and waffles which boasts for a worthy trip down. As a sister restaurant to Lola’s cafe, this place incorporates certain similarities but with very distinct variations. I find that the ambience of a place is significantly as important as the food, and naturally this cafe stood out for me.
On the Table retains a chic-industrial approach within their interior which is beautifully complemented with dimly lit hanging lights and dark grey walls. This down-to-earth aesthetic properties of exposed piping, industrial bar lighting and seating adds up to the urban and metropolitan vibe of this spacious cafe. The colours of the place are earthy (except for a few brightly coloured chairs), which makes everything very pleasing to the eyes. A cosy and sophisticated place to dine with friends but definitely not a place to chill as it gets extremely crowded especially during lunch hours.
Brunch is available from 11am – 4pm and Dinner is available from 6pm – 9pm!
Truffle Bacon Mac and Cheese – $11
A new dish recently added to On The Table’s dinner menu, the Truffle Bacon Mac and Cheese was a dish I instantly fell in love with. Topped with honey glazed bacon, this unpretentious dish was fragrant and rich, yet not too cheesy. A must try if you are heading down for dinner!
Gnocchi with Broccoli and Mushrooms – $15
Another new dish on their dinner menu is the Gnocchi with Broccoli and Mushrooms which is made up of potato gnocchi, shimeji mushrooms, broccoli, 63 deg poached eggs and drizzled with shaved parmesan cheese. A simple and comforting dish yet packed full of flavours, making it quite delicious.
Crispy Honey Wings – $10
A classic favourite which is available at both Lola’s Cafe and On The Table, these honey wings definitely lived up to my expectations. They were well-marinated, the exterior was crispy while the meat retained its tender texture. The paprika spices in the marination was mild yet complemented the wings beautifully. With a tinge of sweetness coming from the honey, it was a lip-smacking dish!
Waffle with Salted Caramel and Belgian Chocolate Ice-Cream
This was not too bad, not that fantastic either. It was crispy on the outside but it was a little too hard on the edges. The Belgian Chocolate Ice-Cream however was a delight to us. It was smooth, dense and so delectable!
Great food, wonderful ambiance and their friendly staff made our dining experience at On The Table an enjoyable one. Moreover, although the prices have increased, their dishes are still one of the most affordable ones and I am glad that they do not charge GST and service charge. Definitely one of the cafes to add to my list of favourites!
