Necessary Provisions

Despite being located in the wild wild west, Necessary Provisions was brimming with customers when we arrived. By a stroke of luck, we found seats in a jiffy and were soon digging in to freshly baked savoury scones — our favourite since Henry Congressional’s. We loved their Pandan Chiffon Cake and Banana Nutella Panini too, although they were regrettably non-photogenic.

Henry Congressional

Henry Congressional is new pop-up store by the folks behind Smitten Coffee. It’s located at Henry Park Apartments which would become history very soon as the estate has been sold en bloc.

Warning: Numerous photos to follow. Blame it on the beautifully soft natural light coming through.

My cold drip coffee (above) was light-bodied with a clear citrus note. That day’s special was fried beehoon with luncheon meat (below). Feels almost like home.

We also shared a pot of Himalayan Darjeeling Tea. Look, loose leaves, yay!

Dark Cloud (above) was a double chocolate cookie which was soft, chewy, chocolaty and everything I wanted. Despite all the raves about their pandan chiffon cake, I was glad we chose the savory scones (below) instead. Baked to order, they arrived fresh and warm, cheesy and chivey. Tasty lil treats they were!

Say hello to X. While I’m flaunting the photographer’s wing in the reflection.

Henry Congressional will be around until Jan 2013 only. So do drop by and soak in the lovely neighborhood that is Henry Park.
