The Fairways Drive or Stables as they call it has a very ‘countryside’ feel to it. It’s opposite to Rider’s Cafe if you know where that is. Depending on the time, you might see horses at the area too! A nice place to escape to if you want to get away from the city rush.
We booked our parents for brunch last weekend at the stables. We know they would like the breakfast / brunch fare here and it’s also quite near their home.
So much greenery, and this place is also the Central Kitchen for the Marmalade Pantry group. There are two main dining area here, the air-conditioned part in the building, and the natural air at the verandah of the building.
The Marmalade Pantry at the Stables only open for dinner on weeknights and all day weekends.
If you are coming here, I recommend you drive or take a taxi.
There was a choice of Grilled English Sausage or smoked bacon. MIL had the bacon.
It comes with quite delicious sauteed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, home made baked beans and whole wheat toast.
Green mangoes, basil, mint and chilled glass noodles. For those who don’t take carbo, this is a good option. Very delicious too!
The buns were spread with wasabi mayo and there was caramelized chunks of onions below the piece of steak and rockets above it. I am glad I ordered it, steak for breakfast, camouflaged like breakfast! I wished there was more wasabi though. 🙂
Honey baked ham, roast chicken, eggs, gem lettuce and roma tomatoes. There was also tasty yam and sweet potato crisp for sides too.
Note: At this branch, you will a nice big table that displays all the cupcakes. It’s like you are visiting someone’s house and they displayed all the cakes and desserts for you to choose. It’s so tempting!
We noticed FIL’s face was delighted with this cupcake. The caramel cream cheese was so tempting!
It comes served very cold and one bite and you can finish it all! A firm texture that melts into creamy goodness when it’s in your mouth. A sweetness with a slight saltiness really excites the tongue!
It goes quite well with the range of Gryphon Tea that they serve here. Parents in law shared a pot of White Gingerlilly that was so fragrant.
Liquid salad because it’s all veggies in it! Spinach, carrots and beetroot! The wife think it’s horrible, but I really love it! (She loves salad, but I think liquid salad’s not for her!)
We like this venue and the countryside view. You can see families coming here for their weekend brunch. It’s kids friendly place too. We were enjoying a nice quiet meal until one family came in. They have two very cute kids with nice golden hair, but they were screaming and running non stop for over 10 minutes! We know they are definitely not French, for French kids always sit quietly at dining tables. (You read about bringing up kids the French way right? It’s so interesting!)
Running outside in the grass area is ok, but not inside the restaurant when servers are bringing out hot food and liquids. Thank goodness the screaming and running finally stopped when the mum realised it’s an accident waiting to happen.
Tonight, if you are there, you get your 4th main course for free!
Some of you may ‘leap’ for joy with this offer! Only once in 4 years! A Leap Year offer!
Grab 3 other friends and head there tonight!
