Before you start to think of Stirling Highway as a cafe at Stirling Road near the super awesome cereal chicken zi char place, think again. This Stirling actually refers to an Australian location where the owners - a merry young couple had learnt how to cook. And cook they did, so much so they had to bring all that goodness back to share with us! I was invited by a friend to give the place a good and I'm glad I did, even if the cafe is located in a very ULU-ated location at Ridgewood Close, beside a condominium (some might know it as where Haato was).
The menu is very uncomplicated and straightforward. Brunch, Salads, Pastas, Drinks and Desserts. The maximum you can spend on food was $16 -- pretty affordable I must say!
There's also a great selection of artisanal teas that are NOT FOR SALE. They also do not have any labels/brand. The owner actually got them from a supplier.
The highlight of Stirling Highway - their amazing Pulled Pork Pancakes ($14) was so amazing, you have no idea what you're missing until you tried it! I know I did. I never though the combination of pulled pork and pancakes can go so well.
Then, another favorite of the group that day - the Prawn Pesto Pasta ($16). It was really really awesome. Addictive almost! I think we could all have had a full portion each, if not for all the previous brunch dishes and salad. Plus there's desserts later. But I would say this is a simple dish done well. Choose this if you are there for lunch!
Yes I would recommend this place - but due to the location I don't see how I might get there in the very near future. You have to drive or cab there, but it will not be a wasted trip if you do. Check this if you live around the neighbourhood and support the owners in their venture would you.
