Backstage Café @ Kallang – away from the crowd!

Backstage café is located in the industrial area away from crowded teen hangouts.There is just something so mysteriously attractive about dining in areas away from the hustle and bustle of rushing crowds. (That, coupled with the fact that it was just a couple of bus stops away from the Aljunied train station, made it a lot more enticing!)   There were plenty of seats and the seating arrangement was very spacious. Another huge plus point! Since it was a weekday, their weekday 3 course lunch which consists of a soup, a main that you pick from 8 choices, and dessert.   On the whole, the food was really average, but the ambience and the friendly staff made up for it. It might have been because the lunch options were rather limited; we couldn’t try the other options on the menu which were only available after 2pm on weekdays.    Please refer to www.ieatandeat.com for details review.

Interesting hidden gem in industrial area

It was time for brunch and off I went with *Katherine, at this hidden cafe in an industrial area - Backstage Cafe. Backstage Cafe provides the perfect hideaway for busy executives to relax and have a drink or two, and the spacious cafe hosts a very relaxing ambience ideal for meals, chit-chat or hanging out. I heard that this place was started by media stars hence if one is lucky, they may catch sight of media artistes hanging out here or using this place as a location set. The Rainbow Cake (SGD$7.50) was the item I ordered first, since I have been having craving for it for a while. The bright colors were pure temptation, and I dug in happily. The first couple of bites gave us the impression that it was too hard and dry, but then we realized that a 7-layered cake could not be too moist - if not the cake would "sink". The texture grew on us, and the different colored layers provided different sweet flavors - the most prominent being lemon with its citrusy, sour charms. We had the Crabmeat Pasta (SGD$16.00) next, cooked in pesto sauce and garlic, with chunks of crab meat and springy noodles. It was a rather tasty dish, but we thought the sapid sweetness of crabmeat should've been more prominent, instead of being obliterated by the tiny garlic cubes. The Tori Karaage - fried chicken cubes (SGD$6.00) - were served next - a little disappointing. The chicken chunks were not crispy enough; in fact it was rather oily / moist, with lots of fatty meats. The taste was quite all right, but being a fan of non-fats meat, I nibbled on tiny slivers of flesh and discarded the rest (a sinful act of waste of food, yes, regrettably).

Spacious cafe for big groups

For more details, please visit http://foodesteem.blogspot.com/2014/06/backstage-cafe.html   Drinks - Iced Cappuccino ($5.50), and Iced Cafe Latte ($5.50). If you prefer to hot version, it is just a dollar less.   Main - Smoked Salmon Benedict ($15.00). Freshly poached eggs on toast accompanied with sliced salmon top with hollandaise sauce and mesculin salad. I love poached eggs which are nicely done with runny yolks. The one that came to our table, has one almost cooked, but another to make up for former :)   Main - Backstage Breakfast Combo ($15.00). Freshly toasted bread with bacon, honey baked ham, sauteed mushroom, grilled fresh tomatoes with melted cheese and mesculin salad, accompanied with choice of egg (scrambled/egg white/poached/sunnyside). Scrambled is a little overcooked, which wasn't the wobbling type I wanted :( Generally the rest of the dish is fine.   Crispy Fried Chicken Wing ($8.00). 4 pieces of wings which are fried to crisp and juicy in the meat. Thumbs!   For more details, please visit http://foodesteem.blogspot.com/2014/06/backstage-cafe.html

Keep it to the drinks. Give the food a miss.

Ordered crabmeat pasta and the recommended pork chop.
waffle ice cream for dessert.
both mains were disappointing.
pasta was slightly undercooked and it's too oily. Too jer-lak
pork chop was too hard. Got a feeling it's overcooked.
Portion is considered small given the price. Considered over priced

The waffle is thin and slightly burnt.

Signature Backstage Breakfast Combo

We ordered a Backstage breakfast combo @$15 each and cup of cafe latte and cappucino.

The breakfast came with a unique selling point of fresh tomato baked with mushroom and cheese. Added on with bacon on top. While the rest of the dishes i.e. toast bread with scramble egg, salad vege, ham and fries are more or less the same like American breakfast.

There are some other choices of main course (pasta, steaks, desserts or cakes etc) for lunch or dinner and one of the signature is Flaming Brandy Chicken. I will definitely visit again for this dish.

PS: There is a complimentary of 1 hour car parking with a minimum of $20 dollar spent. The cashier will provide the car coupon to scan for exit after payment.
