Wheeler's Yard needs little introduction. Boss and cycling enthusiast Tommy Ong turned his family's old warehouse into a bicycle workshop and cafe back in September 2013.Ambience at Wheeler's Yard cafe is laid-back and rustic, with a retro and bicycle themed decor. Long, sturdy, communal wooden tables are surrounded by an eclectic mix of retro / nostalgic chairs. Magazines and music boxes are set on the tables, beside bicycle parts or whole bicycles. The counter is surrounded by old-school / olden items such as biscuit tins, while the rough brick wall is adorned with bicycle frames. Very photo-worthy, visually exciting and appealing. Also makes the place great for chilling!Even the surrounding area has interesting spots. The workshop has bicycle / cycling related products and items of interest, the yard behind has their trailer and a lush green hedge wall, the front has the iconic Wheeler's Yard blue door. They even have benches that double as a waiting area should the cafe be crowded!Service at Wheeler's Yard is partial self-service. Ordering and payment is done over the counter, as is collection of order, but if you're lucky and the cafe isn't crowded, staff may serve orders to your table. Otherwise, everything is self-service. Staff are friendly and can engage if necessary, though mostly they hang around in the background. The menu has apt descriptions of dishes, so you won't even need to ask them questions. Very minimal interaction, little service required, hence, they practise tipping here.Food at Wheeler's Yard is mostly Western style, influenced by American, British, and Italian cuisine, with some Asian influence as well, such as Indonesian, Chinese, or Singaporean. Generally, taste of food here is decent to above average, but nothing so special that you should go out of your way for. Portions are large, and can be shared. Prices at Wheeler's Yard are typical of a high-end cafe, budget about SGD $32 per person for a meal here.The Hot Chocolate (SGD $6) here is among the better ones I've had, rich and deep with pronounced chocolate flavour. Warm and comforting, yet not too sweet. Love the little retro gem biscuits on the side!The Or Lu Lu Sotong (SGD $16.90) features large chunks of fresh calamari squid, coated in a thin, crisp Asian spice and flour batter, and served in a thick, dark, sweet Indonesian kecap manis / black sweet soy sauce, and spring onions. Portion is large enough to share. I really enjoyed this, would order again!The Salmon Royale (SGD $18.90) has 2 lovely poached eggs over arugula / wild rocket leaves, large slices of smoked salmon, all on nicely toasted English muffins. Cut into the eggs and watch the yolk ooze out! Decent enough as a dish, and I like the home made Hollandaise sauce, which is thick and creamy. I also thought the touch of adding sweet slices of peach to the salad on the side is a good idea!Full Wheeler's Yard review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2015/10/wheelers-yard.html continue reading

Tonight, for the first time, we sat at the great outdoors this cool evening, where the courtyard was spacious, windy and well-maintained. I like the white patio tables and chairs.I ordered the Caesar Salad since I was not really hungry.- it consisted of the usual goodies such as lettuce, croutons, cheese flakes, a very small sprinkling of hard boiled eggs and the dressing, along with teeny bacon bits. As mentioned before, very few people could toss a Caesar wrongly, hence this was a rather refreshing meal.The Beau had the Spaghetti Carbonara (SGD$14.90) which was a rather huge portion, and had the standard shards of ham and creamy sauce. The pasta was a little soggy, and the cream was too rich in this case - after a few bites, it got kind of difficult to go on (unless we poured loads of Tabasco sauce or chilli flakes over it).We also tried the Horlicks Tart (SGD$5.50) - while the crust was nice in a crunchy manner, the flavor was lackluster in Horlicks' maltese aroma. There was a sticky layer inside the sweet tart that tasted like a suspicious cross between Horlicks and caramel. Well, it was our first Horlicks tart, so we couldnt really comment much, other than that the crust was nice and the tart was sweet with sticky fillings.For full review and more information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2015/02/dinner-at-wheelers-yard-cafe-revisit.html continue reading

Wheeler's Yard is a place where food & bike come together "hidden" in an industrial estate. I will not know this "ulu" place if not of the ravings from other bloggers. I love the spacious and unpretentious layout and I can totally imagine coming here with a group of friends to just eat and be fat. HeeheeMore seating outside the cafe!It's a self service concept here, so proceed to the counter to place your order. Get your buzzer and wait patiently for your food.Our orders: Hum Bao Bao - $23.90Grilled Chicken - $17.90Cappuccino - $5Root Beer - $3.90The grilled chicken was fairly normal.Super big burger with 2 thick patty & oozing cheese! The portion was humongous and I couldnt finish myself. No wonder most of those who ordered the dish were guys..I was deciding between Soursop Meringue Tart ($7.50) and Horlicks Tart ($7.90) as both sound more interesting than the commonly available fruit and chocolate tarts. Since hubby decided to "abandon" me by not sharing the load of the dessert with me, I went ahead to order the Soursop Meringue Tart which I know he will not like it being a boring and unadventurous eater. >.<Guess what? I loved it and I thought it was the best order of the day! The tart was crispy & hard, just the way I like the crust to be. The soursop filling was refreshing yet not overpowering. This is definitely something that I will order again. =)Visit http://fun-hideout.blogspot.sg/2014/12/wheelers-yard.html for more pictures and review ♥ ♥ ♥ continue reading

I have never dined in any of the cafes located in the industrial Estate and just recently, I decided to venture into such areas on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Facade was simple, cemented with dark dirty patches on the bricks, a common outlook of Singapore's warehouses.To emphasis its trade further, a red bicycle was mount onto one of its corner of the shelter.As you know, Wheeler's yard is a bike workshop concept with an incorporation of a cafe.We followed the arrows leading us to the cafe and saw a neat row of red old retro bicycles lined up along the walkway, leading us into the merchandise.Bike lovers, this should be one of the heavens where you can get to see parade of bikes and peripherals. There are also a wide range of helmets available.Bikes for the kiddos are on sale too. Do check it out!Besides having bicycles in Wheeler's Yard, you can spot the old school vespa parked there.Another rare sight of the old school barber chairs. However, no resting is allowed on these chairs. If you are coming from the neighbourhood, there is a side gate to enter into Wheeler's yard.It was Sunday morning and as I entered into the cafe, I was amazed by the amount of decorations hanging here and there. There were bikes mounted on the tables as well as hanging onto the walls, likewise for those colorful helmets.Place was simple without too much of paint work and it was all like dining in a clean workshop.Just at the front table in front of the cafe entrance, we have batman on the wheels. Whee! Most of the tables has a headphone attach, allowing diners to listen to the music.A buzzer will be given after ordering at the counter. Once it flashes and vibrates, we have to proceed to the collection counter.Self service is practised throughout, even its menu, we have to walk up to the counter. Menu was rather simple, printed on rough brown papers and clipped onto the board.It was quite innovative to make use of the bike's gear peddle as a door handle for the toilet.Our brunch started with cups of iced beverages, Cappuccino and soursop. Taste was lacking and for soursop, it was disappointing as it was quite diluted without the fleash of the fruits.While I heard so many people were raving about this place, I would say their food is average and expensive.Grilled chicken was one of the recommended mains. It was boneless with hints of cajun spice, paired with sauteed greens and creamy mash.Hum Bao Bao is another recommended dish on its menu, when translated from Mandarin, it actually means hamburger. It consists of double homemade beef patties, stacked with bacons, cheddar cheese, fresh lettuce, tomato and topped with caramelized onions.Buns were pillow soft in the inside and tanned on its crust with black sesame seeds. Though the patties may be juicy but taste was all lacking. Thick cut fries make up part of the dish, however, the oil used give out a smell that hint us that it had been overused.All in all, I felt that if you want a change in the usual dining experiences, then this would be a good place and chance. However, if you are here for food and have high expectations, then this is gonna be disappointing.Visit www.umakemehungry.com for more reviews. continue reading

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2014/11/wheelers-yard.htmlWheeler's Yard's menu may not have an extensive food items, but each of them does seem interesting enough to land you in an indecisive mode! Menu board is available near the indoor entrance, and you are welcome to grab one and head back to your table for "discussion".Ham & Cheese Panini ($16.90) with garden salad and fries. If you are a person who does not prefer cheesy food, Ham & Cheese Panini should not be an option then. But for those cheesy peeps like me, I am loving it! I also love their fries, because it is not the skinny ones!Otah Burger ($16.90). Wheeler's yard uses mackerel fish patty with cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato, stacked in between brioche buns and a side portion of fries. Brioche bun is about an adult palm size, which is bigger than usual burgers. Strong fish-flavored otah taste that I can't stop for another bite.If the usual cafe drinks are too mainstream for you, they do have a bar-like counter at the entrance of the outdoor seating. If you are dropping here at night, you might be able to catch a different side of Wheeler's Yard, where drinkers and cyclists-alike gather for a chat.Seems like a place ideal for pro-cyclists to drop-in for some filling food and purchasing add-on for their bicycles before heading back to track. I love how spacious it looks, and the planning put into the decoration.I have definitely heard of how bad their food taste and serving time is pretty ridiculous. Perhaps efficiency and improvements have been injected into the cafe, my waiting time was less than 15 minutes on a crowded weekend morning where I queued for an estimated of 5-10 minutes to have my food ordered, but food is definitely a thumbs!For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2014/11/wheelers-yard.html continue reading
