We finally found our new home and we are moving to Farrer Road coming Jan 2014! The first thing we did was to check out if there were any vegetarian stalls around our new neighbourhood, sadly there were none at Empress Road Food Market. The only available vegetarian stall was Piore, a little cafe located on the second floor of block 3, Farrer Road. It is right next to the bus stop and mrt station and is really convenient and easy to spot. The cafe is quiet and really cozy when I dropped by on Tuesday afternoon. They also have a sofa lounge corner for people to read magazines and have tea. Talking about tea, they serve spa-style lemongrass hot drink for $0.50 (free flow)! It was quite a novelty as I have never been to any vegetarian stalls that served good quality tea at such a price.
I got Bah Kut Teh mee sua soup $5.50 and it was superb! The broth was herbal and filled with lots of ingredients like tau pok, tofu, mushrooms and 2 pieces of mock mutton meat. The best part was the mee sua noodles. They were springy and cooked so well. I finished the noodles first before finishing up the rest of the ingredients. The unique part was the extra dough fritters side dish that came with the set meal. Service was prompt and polite and I cannot wait to eat there more often when we move in!
