The Providore

So a few weeks ago,
Puaysee, Kaikeng and me decided that we should have a meetup before the year end and also to celebrate Zhihan's 21st which was super duper belated.
Well, all of us are pretty busy and it's quite hard to have meetup with each other since the guys are in NS also. But no matter what, time spent with them are always filled with laughter and fun!!!

We decided to go to The Providore because when I was at Mandarin Gallery with Puaysee, we saw this cafe and I was telling her that I wanted to try out this cafe. So, we decided to have our gathering cum birthday celebration over there.

The place was pretty small but not too bad or maybe we were just lucky that there wasn't much people there.

Puaysee's drink and mine. 
The one on the left is mine and I ordered their Pineapple, blackberry and mint freshly squeezed juice. Taste pretty speical but not the best though. I didn't really like it.
While Puaysee ordered their Lychee, mango and orange fresh fruit smoothie. Not too bad! Taste just like mango smoothie!

For Zhihan's entrees , he ordered their Lasagna and this suppose to be their large portion. 
When his entrees came, he complaint that it was like small portion.

Kaikeng and Puaysee ordered the same entrees and once agian, they ordered the large entrees which doesn't really seem to be large. 
They ordered their Lobster Mac and Cheese. I tried a little from Puaysee and I didn't like it. Well, afterall I'm not a cheese lover so that might be why I didn't like it.

I ordered their medium entrees and mine seem to be much bigger than theirs. Haha.
But that might be because it's a sandwich. Anyway, this is their grilled mackerel crostini and crispy bacon. 
Not too bad but the mackerel was a little dry, also the bread is really tough!! I couldn't cut it and I just simply use my folk to shred it.

They bought a small cake for Zhihan and Puaysee bought the relightable(?) candles which totally FAIL!
He managed to blow it off. Haha
Super epic moment for Puaysee as she was super confident that he had to keep blowing the candles.
The cake was super nice!!!!!!!
I think it was earl grey flavour. Might be wrong but there's bananas!!! I LOVE IT!

Puaysee was using my phone to take photos because she need to use her phone to make insta video.
Tsk, this girl... 24/7 with her phone one...

In conclusion,
The Providore wasn't a bad place to dine it. The ambient is good, not too crowd and the staffs are friendly!
However if you wanted to have a proper dinner, I won't recommend it as the portions are quite small and pricey.
I think their cakes are worth the try though. Even though we didn't have it that day, but I heard pretty good reviews for their desserts.
They have a semi open concept for their cafe which I always enjoyed this kind of concept for cafe.
