If anyone from Singapore is reading this, The Providore is essentially under the same label as Jones the Grocer, which is known for its yummy, yet non heart-pain inducing foods.
I opted for the lobster macaroni and cheese and a homemade berry tea. I was very impressed with the lobster mac and cheese; the lobsters were fresh and the chef was (satisfyingly) not stingy with the lobster. The cheese was very light and creamy, and what I noticed was that when I was done with the portion the cheese only left a slight film of oil on the bottom of the pan, as opposed to some restaurants where the mac & cheese is literally swimming in grease. The only (slight) criticism I would have is that the macaroni wasn't very well-cooked and was still slightly hard to bite, but I was willing to overlook that on account of how well-fed I was.
My other favourite was the berry tea. I'm slightly obsessed with iced teas during the summer-- regardless of what flavour or what kind. I chose a berry tea because it reminded of the Boston Iced Tea which I love-- cranberry juice, black tea and sometimes lemon or strawberry mix depending on your person. But this tea was refreshing, sweet-- and although I normally hate juicy bits in my tea-- the juiciness and the sweetness of the strawberry and berry bits was such a treat for the tastebuds
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the refreshingly minimalistic decor, so here are some pictures I borrowed off some Singaporean food bloggers (sources at the bottom of the picture). I wish I could eat this everyday, but unfortunately my wallet is connected to my bank account. If only it rained money ):
Any idea where I should eat next? Let me know (:
