Food For Thought

Food For Thought

Address: 420 North Bridge Road
#01-06 North Bridge Centre

  • Slow-Roasted Pulled Pork Sandwich $9.90
  • Shitake Mushroom Soup

Hand-Shredded slow roasted pork, drizzled with Tangy light BBQ sauce.
Delectable. Flavorful yet light tasting, without the feel of being Ge-Lad
Sandwich crust eludes a light crunch and reveals a soft moist bread
Crunchy lettuce and tomato brings a balance to the meat.

Shitake Mushroom soups shows traces of Shitake chunks in mini satisfying bite-sizes. Light in texture unlike the usual thick creamed mushroom soups in other places.
This soup review will be dependable on individual preferences.
If you are one that loves the *Pow Wow Bang* thick and very flavourful soup, than this may fall as short to what you are looking for.
However, if you are one that prefers for food to be tasty but on the light side, think you will find this soup pleasing to your taste palettes.
  • Old-Southern Style Red Velvet Cake $5.50
    Great combination and blend of Cranberry sponge cake layered with white chocolate

    Food for Thought is one of my faves. It is a great place for a close cozy catch-up and get togethers. Small cafe that sits about 16 people, tucked away in town. It is opposite Bras Basah Complex.

    The reasons i love food for thought:
  • Great food@ reasonable pricing
  • Cozy Bistro Cafe with a homey old-fashion look with a touch of modern creativity
  • they play jazz songs, and on the occasion when i went, they play OLIVIA ONG!! =D my fave jazz singer!
  • They serve the community with the profits they earn
  • The intricate and detailed thought they put into every single thing in this cafe, from the branding to the decor, menu and furnishing, especially love their self designed postcards.

The other Main reason why i love this little cafe is the Great service attitude of the staff/owners there. Their warmth and passion they possess for this cafe spreads through their service experience with you.

to me, great service adds to the overall experience and rating of a place. They determine if the customer will give a thumbs-down, a passing mark or a Thumbs-up.

Definately a place which i would return to. Whenever im thinking of a nice cozy cafe for a hang-out, food for thought never fails to surface in my consideration.

A pity they are closed on sunday, hope they can open for at least the evening period on sunday so that i can have dinner with my group of friends that love food for thought as well

Mango Tango

Bangkok is famous for their Mango.
Innovative ideas are blooming out by the young Thai entreprenuers, bringing the usual fare of Mango Sticky rice and all things Mango, up a few notches to a boutique Mango Cafe

I chanced upon Mango Tango.. being a sucker for cafes, i had to go in and check it out!
Couldn't resist ordering the below Mango Sticky Rice (comes with a scoop of refreshing Mango Sorbet)
The Sorbet Harmonizes the Mango and Sticky Rice

Their Menu consists of a huge variety of desserts/drinks with all things Mango
-Bangkok Siam Square (the above air-conditioned and well furnished cafe)
-Bangkok Chatuchat (non-aircon, more of outdoor road side stall)
Mango Tango will definately be on my List of the MUST-HAVES in Bangkok ;)
Cost: above the average road side stall, but considering Cafe with the Sorbet ice-cream, prive was actually very resaonable.
if my memory serves me right, it should cost between S$5- S$6
