So there we were two Fridays ago where I finally met Leng. I have to say that while Drury Lane has a very similar hipster vibe just like all the other new cafes opening in the city (there are more than 150, remember?), here's the place where you can go to when you want a bit of peace and quiet. It's not packed and you can head up to the second floor where you can catch up without having to strain your vocal chords or your ears too.
The menu was very simple. They serve all-day brunch classics, 3 types of sandwiches and 4 types of baked eggs. They also offer 3 different specials that changes on a daily basis. Perfect as I like uncomplicated menus. I zeroed in on the Smoked Salmon Pasta with Grilled Portobello and Spinach (S$16) while Leng went for another specials, the Smoked Portobello Grilled Cheese Melts with Avocado and an add-on of Steak (S$15).
It was indeed a fun lunch and it's so funny that the more we got to know each other better, we also found out that we share a couple of common friends too! How cool is that?! I can't wait to meet up with Leng again.
As for the other two, I tried the Banana Walnut and I wasn't sure if my expectations we just too high after hearing my colleagues raved about it or I ate it cold but it was a bit too dry for my liking. Paul's Nutella Muffin is still sitting prettily in our fridge so I'll see if it's better than what I got.
Another fun lunch at Drury Lane and I really do not mind going back there on a weekly basis. I guess they have the perfect formula: accessible location + reasonably priced menu + delicious food! On my next visit, I'll make sure to try the coffee, more muffins and yes, that to-die-for Banana Bread too!
Till next time, Drury Lane!
