Oriole Cafe & Bar @ Somerset Road

I visited Oriole Cafe a few months ago, and am now back at this cute little cafe and bar in the heart of Orchard Road.

The place is quite dark at night, and it is difficult to access the cafe through Orchard Road. The best way is access through Pan Pacific Serviced Suites along Somerset Road. But once 313@Somerset opens in December this year, it can be easily accessed through the new shopping mall from Orchard Road.

Beetroot Salad - The beetroot slices are slightly warmed, therefore making it softer and sweeter. I like the bits of nuts and goat cheese with the salad.

My all time favourite Philly cheese and steak sandwich. The beef is wonderfully tender, and I like the shreds of panfried bell peppers. But the grilled onions is too sweet for my linking. Kuods to Oriole for adding chips and salad to the sandwich. Definitely one of the best steak sandwich in Singapore.

Risotto with Salmon. I am not a big fan of risotto, so I can't really comment on whether this dish taste good or not. But my fellow diner who had it enjoyed this dish.

Bread and butter pudding - The pudding was a bit too thick for my liking, but I like the slightly less creamy sauce. Overall, it was a good attempt by Oriole.

  1. We tried bread pudding in London and it was very different from the one at oriole cafe. It was softer, more spongy and moist. Even though we do not like the bread pudding at oriole, we do love the mains at lot! :)

  2. The Philly sandwich looks yummilicious! Had a meal there awhile ago... Good recommendation.
