If you heard of Refuel Cafe which is popular in the East sides, you will probably know that they have opened another cafe in Telok Blangah area located at the foot of Mount Faber.
Interior has thrown a show case of Scandinavian inspired decor. The environment is bright and gives a comfortable feel to diner. If you notice the pipeline decoration on the wall, you will figure out that they are spelling out "Fuel Plus".
We ordered some bites while waiting for the mains and we were glad that we did as it took quite sometime for the food to come. Cheesy tortilla nibbles were not a bad choice and served with BBQ pulled pork topped with refreshing salsa, jalapeno and their homemade sauce.
While presentation is a plus point here, we also get to taste a different style of enjoying a glass of Ice Latte. Instead of having milk with espresso topped with ice. They did a reverse engineer way by having Espresso Freeze into cubes and served it with a glass of milk.
Fuel Ice Tea is surprisingly refreshing. Sweetness level was just right and pack full of citrus flavours. You get to taste the real strawberry fruits, kaffir lime and mint flavours in this drink. Definitely a boost to your vitamin C for the day!
The slow baked tender pork ribs were tantalizing! It comes with thai inspired mixed salad that contains rocket leaves, cauliflower, strawberries and even slice of fried lotus root. Yum! Taste and tenderness were definitely great and comparable to those cafe that specialized in BBQ Ribs. However, one thing that can improve on maybe perhaps the serving time. It was served cold and we preferred to have it at least warm.
It was the dish I looked forward to the most before travelling down. I was tad disappointed as it was served with egg fettucini instead. Nonetheless, the quality of the food was above expectation. Tender chunks of beef was a spot on. The slow cooked beef in rich hereby tomato sauce was generous and every part of the pasta was well coated in sauce.
Overall, food has been slightly above expectation and by looking at other tables orders, i'm kind of convinced that we have to make additional trip back to try other interesting bites, desserts as well as the Mains. Serving timing for the mains may take a while but good food comes to those who wait. Ha Ha Ha.
Keep it up!
