We decided to head to Marmalade Pantry for brunch after sending Waffles to the groomers since it was pretty near. Located next to Rider's is the pretty restaurant which we felt is covered by too much greenery. Parking is free and readily available in the compound.
Having been to their old Holland Village outlet and the Ion branch many times, I know how good their cupcakes are. My favourite has gotta be limonata! Keeps me going back for more!
We were really excited to see what they have to offer for brunch.
Sadly, we did not choose any of the seven items they have on their menu.
We sure weren't gonna pay $19 for Eggs Benedict!
Hot Chocolate $7
It was raining so X ordered my favourite hot chocolate for me when I was snapping pictures indoors.
Such a sweet boy.
Sadly, the hot chocolate wasn't very good.
There was too much milk and too little chocolate
I'm not a fan of cream-base pastas as I tend to get sick of them after awhile.
But I must say that Marmalade Pantry's carbonara is pretty damn awesome!
I cleaned up the whole plate!
The poached egg is a really good addition to the carbonara.
Also, we liked the fried bacon strips! They were salty and crispy and added flavour to the pasta.
Crabmeat linguine $22
I've had this before and I liked the interesting taste the pine nuts add to the sweet crab meat!
So I recommended it to X. Haha
It was pretty yummy but there was too little sauce as some parts of the linguine were quite dry
I've always had the cupcakes so we decided to go for something else this time round.
Having heard great things about their sticky date pudding, we decided to try it.
The sticky date pudding is moist and soft and it tastes really good with the icecream!
Highly recommended! $14
We really adore the location of Marmalade Pantry at the Stables. We love places that are hidden away from the busyness of city life. Spending a few hours here having good food and desserts with your loved ones is really therapeutic. Although the prices are on the high side, this place is definitely worth a visit!
