Farm to Table Cafe at 81 Duxton

The Farm to Table Cafe is a quaint little cafe located at 83 Duxton Road, Duxton Hotel, Singapore 089540 and the number to dial is 6225 4381. Despite its rather elegant exterior, complete with plants parting at steps leading up, and golden door handles, the interior is actually pretty chill, with an artistic touch and cosy tones (of foresty hues). It was a little warm despite the soothing hues, but when we pointed it out and the restaurant manager shut the doors leading into Duxton Hotel's lobby, the temperature cooled gradually.

The first item we tried was the Open Chicken Sandwich (SGD$14.00) - chunks of chicken breast in homemade herb mayonnaise , with sliced avocado, eggs, tomato on sourdough bread. The sourdough crust was very hard so I couldn't cut it, and had to eat the sandwich with my hands. This sandwich comes with crunchy chicken breast cubes and the herb mayonnaise is light yet distinctly detecable. The combined flavors and textures of sourdough, egg, buttery avocado, crunchy chicken cubes infused with herb mayonnaise and sourish juicy tomatoes was a taste cacophony of delight.

Next, we tried tried their signature Farmers Burger (SGD$18.00) plus avocado (SGD$4.00) - grass fed beef patty on sesame bun , maple bacon relish, cheddar, tomato, lettuc and Farm to Table signature mayonnaise. We changed the hot potato fries to Truffle Fries. The truffle fries were pretty bland and I deduced that I'd prefer shoe-string fries anytime. The beef patty was somewhat dry, with a light touch of sweet beef flavor. Coupled with the rest of the ingredients on this tall burger, the overall taste was quite all right - not outstanding in any manner, but a subtle play of flavors burst. I thought the onions taste was too overpowering - followed me all the way back to office.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
