EARL Canteen

I have always wanted to try Earl Canteen. I’ve read about it from reviews and people raving about their sandwiches. So I have been dying to try! And since baby had a lunch break before his evening shift, I met him for lunch at EARL Canteen! Yay!

I was so super happy when we arrived at this small and cosy little cafe. We were greeted by the friendliest waiter ever. Seriously! Service was really really good. No doubt that I will be a returning customer!

We were introduced to try this pressurised cold juices and they were really yummy! He was right to say the pink lady apple was the best! I had the passionfruit and apple one. Really good on a hot day!

there were so many to choose from but we decided to choose what hit our minds first!

the crispiest skin, and meat that will just melt in your mouth. With the combination of apple, cabbage and fennel coleslaw it was perfect! The only thing that baby wasn’t too happy about was that his baguette was not toasted proper. So was a bit tough! But other than that, the flavours were really good! I do prefer this to what I had.

I had the duck confit sandwich! hehe I have a thing for duck confit. haha so I had to order it when I saw it on the menu. When it came, I must admit, the colour of the duck meat isn’t that attractive. But let me tell you, never judge the food by only it’s looks! It was soft and also melt in your mouth. Together with the caramelised fig, walnut and onion jam, it was SO GOOD! sweet and savoury all in one bite! LOVED IT!

Will definitely head back to try the other sandwiches or even just to have the pork belly sandwich again. haha yes. that’s how much I loved it! (:

and im sure from this picture, you can see why!

and also from my baby’s super clean plate! (:

So what is your favourite kind of sandwich?

I love days like these. Nothing is planned, just a free afternoon to spend with my dearest mummy. No fancy restaurants, no high teas, just a simple meal and having a nice chat (: I’ve never had this before, but mum has and she said I would like the bee hoon. and I did. She knows me best for sure!

It’s located in Food Republic, at a corner. and it was yummy. haha It was just the 2 of us, but we ordered quite a bit! and in the end, we had to packet the leftovers. hehe

this is the fried bee hoon my mum was talking about. It’s thin, but full of flavour. Every bite you take, gives you a punch. A nice punch, not those that hurt, those that make you smile. (: plus the peanuts that are hidden like treasures, gives u the crunch!

pair it with their homemade chilli, match-made in heaven.I would so buy the chilli if it’s on sale. haha

i secretly love to eat pork floss. LOVE. really. i do. and it’s just genius to top fried egg plant with pork floss. The blendness of egg plant with the saltiness and sweetness of pork floss : perfect.

and this golden crispy delish i duck wrapped in yam. I love this combination. I had it when I went to Pacific House for the first time. So glad we could find it in Singapore! (: Crispy on the outside, tender and soft on the inside. The duck was cooked to perfection. Still tender and juicy, not a single bit dry.

A simple yet amazing meal. Absolutely love days like this. (: Thanks Mummy!

i can never get enough scones!
