The Providore is a café, a grocer and a bistro all at once – where cheese, dairy products, and spirits etc are retailed and we could have the option of dining in. Ambience was casual and relaxing, with a choice of indoor and outdoor seating. Service was surprisingly good – it had been painfully slow and inefficient when I visited around a year ago. Orders were taken promptly and the crew was very polite. The Providore brand does not just serve food, but also adore food; bringing some of the best locally-produced and globally-sourced products to us in Singapore where they choose to build their brand.We shared some Cheese and Ham Croquettes, deep fried. The exterior was a crumbly coat opening up to reveal bits of ham and melted cheese. This simple but palatable snack was perfect for munching during tea-time, over coffee or tea. And I really liked how it had the right texture - not too dry, not greasy, but the right level of softness.The Chai Latte (SGD$6.50) was presented prettily with a cinnamon stick. The beverage was made up of Providore 7 spice Chai powder and steamed milk, giving it a smooth, creamy texture and piquant aroma of Chai. I loved the tinge of spiciness amongst the bittersweetness of the drink.For full review and more detailed information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2015/11/afternoon-tea-at-providore-cafe.html continue reading

Now to the food, I ordered their English breakfast and my friend ordered their Spanish baked eggs. We both had MOCHACINO and requested with skimmed milk but only one came with skimmed milk. The scrambled eggs were bland, the mushrooms were sourish, the pork sausage is pretty tasteless the only thing that i thought were decent were the bacons and it is only because grilled bacon can't go wrong. As for the spanish eggs it was decent, the CHORIZO SAUSAGE wasn't too salty, the sauce was average. For me the coffee left a rather undesirable sour taste.: I went there with a friend for Brunch on a Sunday. I saw an empty table (4-seater) But there were still a Q so we went ahead to join the Q. After about 15mins i asked the staff why is it that we are not given that seat, his answer was that is a 4-seater table and we are only a group of 2 so they can't sit us there. I then told him but there is no one else and we have been waiting for about 15mins and there is an empty table, does it make sense? He then reply because it is a Sunday and they are anticipating crowds and it is management policy.After waiting for 1/2 hour they finally offered us the 4-seater table, not without telling me that he is making an exception and that he will bear the responsibilities if there is any. If this is really how the management is instructing their staff to operate then i can only say they don't know how to do business, I understand the logic of a 4-seater table is reserve for a group of 4. E.G. in the Q there is a group of 2 and a group of 4 of course you offer 4-seater table to the group of 4 even though they are Q-ing behind the table of 2, but in this case the only person who was behind us was a lady and she is a group of 1. What bothers me is that this restaurant according to the reply of their staff choose to reserve a table for a group of may/may not come customer instead of offering customers who are already there. I have been to many cafes this is definitely the one with the worse customer service, even wild honey's well-known bad reputation is better than them.I should have left when they gave me such an inflexible excuse. Never will i step into this cafe again. continue reading

Mandarin Gallery welcomes a new addition to their brood of elegant and swanky tenants with the launch of gourmet label- The Providore's flagship cafe on the second floor. From the same people who brought you Jones the Grocer, founders Bruce Chapman and Robert Collick's latest gourmet F&B venture involves both a concept retail store in a 3,000 square foot warehouse in Tan Boon Liat that carries over 500 private label items and this cafe which serves up western food with an Australian influence.Diners will never get bored with a myriad of offerings available at different times of the day. Breakfast from 9am-12pm on weekdays and extends till 3pm on weekends showcases primarily artisan breads such as Sourdough Toast and the Open Faced Breakfast BLT all freshly baked from BAO Bakery and free range eggs in their English Breakfast and Spanish Baked Eggs.Lunch from 12-3pm is straightforward with offerings of gourmet sandwiches and salads from $14.50 while the transition into evening from 3pm onwards is all about Sharing Plates and a choice of Small $14.50, Medium $18.50 and Large $22.50, ideal for communal dining.Organic Muesli Parfait $12.50For the health conscious, start your day with The Providore's toasted muesli with shaved coconut. Topped with natural yoghurt, fresh fruit and crunchy roasted almonds, healthy never tasted this good. The cinnamon honey brought it home for me with its thick consistency, sweet yet not cloying aftertaste and full-bodied richness. But the trick ironically is in stirring it all up with the milk and letting it sit for a bit before digging in so that the muesli absorbs all that flavor.Ricotta Pancakes $17.50The first item on the menu to catch my eye, pancakes with bananas are almost impossible to resist, especially when those bananas are caramelized and walnuts are candied. Using the label's Yellowbox Honey, which I believe was the same one used in the Muesli Parfait, it was a refreshing change from the usual Maple Syrup.Pancakes were fluffy and ridiculously light despite its thickness and lapped up all the honey we poured with its pockets of air. Do not be afraid to ask for more honey if your jar runs empty, in fact, we recommend it for a heightened sense of satisfaction with your pancakes.The entry of The Providore into our brunch scene gives places like Wild Honey a good run for its money. With such a strategic location, I can foresee crowds flocking here especially on the weekends though we hear that it is now already difficult to find a seat if you do not come early. While prices may come across as a little steep, one has to understand that you are paying for its rent in the heart of Orchard Road and the quality produce that goes into every dish on the menu.So the next time you are in town, you know where to go for some delicious and Instagram-worthy food.For full review and photos: http://gninethree.com/2013/10/15/theprovidore-cafe-mandarin-gallery/ continue reading

For full review and more photos, visit http://makanarts.com/2013/08/31/the-providore-mandarin-gallery/The Iced Cappuccino is disappointing. The coffee was bland as the taste of the coffee was not strong, even the milk taste wasn’t apparent.The Flat White's blend came from Toby’s Estate, so you know what to expect. Great coffee!The Roasted New Potatoes with Rosemary and Romesco Sauce was well sauteed and roasted to perfection, its enough to be eaten on its own. Have it, however, with the Romesco sauce for a mild spicy and tangy taste.The Spatchcock Chicken is a chicken that had their backbone removed so that it can be flattened before roasting it with lemon & thyme, garlic & shallots, verjus & Creme Fraiche sauce. This resulted in a crispy skin and each piece of chicken tasting juicy and flavourful. It is one that must be ordered here!The Red Velvet Cake had disappointed a bit. The cake did not crumble easily, the taste of the cake were alright, but the taste of butter/cheese was in near absence in the cream used. Nonetheless, the quantity was enough to delight both of us. continue reading

I chanced upon The Providore while hunting for desserts after my meal at Fukuichi. The decor was so chic and modern that it was hard to resist stepping inside. The whole cafe reminded me of Jones the Grocer, just 2 levels up, with its colourful tea sets and accompanying tea leaves stored in colour-clad metal tins. After a round of satisfying desserts and drinks, I aimed to come back to try the mains.For full review and more photos, please visit http://foodiepink.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/the-providore-mandarin-gallery/Enjoy continue reading
