Wheeler’s Yard @ 28 Lorong Ampas | Miss Tam Chiak’s Review
I made a trip down to Wheeler’s Yard, FINALLY. My instagram feed has been flooded by #OOTD pictures at the entrance of this cafe. So I decided to check it out on a weekday lunch. Verdict? Impressed with the place, but not the food.
Wheeler’s Yard occupies an entire warehouse, it’s huge and the place is decorated with hipster bikes. For many cafes in Singapore, I feel like I am suffocating. But definitely not for Wheeler’s Yard. It’s spacious, with mixture of wooden tables and comfortable sofa. Even for me, I can’t stop taking pictures of every corner of the place because it’s not a typical cafe that you will commonly find in Singapore.
We were recommended to try Wheeler’s Yard Big Breakfast ($19.90) served with thick brioche, bacon, cheesy pork sausage, hush brown, sauteed mushrooms and toasted tomatoes, with a choice of scrambled or sunny side up. Nothing much to shout about.
Signature Hum Bao Bao ($23.90) had homemade double beef patty (infused with wagyu fats) stacked with bacon, cheddar cheese, fresh lettuce, tomato and caramelized onions sandwiched between the brioche buns with a tanned crust. The two huge and overwhleming patties were overcooked that day, resulting in a dry texture. I am a sucker for beef burgers, but unfortunately, this does not work me. I love munching on the thick cut fries though.
What’s probably acceptable is my cup of cappuccino ($5) with strong aroma and it certainly makes me happy. I was quite surprised by the crowd even on a weekday afternoon. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait for long. All the cool decorations aside, I personally think the food is nothing much to rave about.
