Drury Lane Café Singapore: where lunch was served with kilig moments

Momma J, the expert networking Queen Bee, suggested I hook up with food/travel blogger Fran (of Frannywanny) whilst I was in Singapore. It was another testament of how small the world is because Fran and I found out we shared some common friends.
Fran suggested lunch at Drury Lane on Tanjong Pagar Road in Chinatown, which I found quite serendipitous, as my office in London is very near a street called Drury Lane.

The cafe is set on two floors; downstairs has a rather quick-eat feel for those on the go whilst upstairs is laid for those who have a bit more time for bigger meals.

Fran was such a delightful person to meet. I couldn’t stop smiling throughout lunch as we discussed our blogging and love life histories. It was all very nakakakilig.

We opted for the daily specials. Fran chose the smoked salmon pasta with portabello mushrooms and aglio olio. It looked as picturesque as it sounded although I personally thought the serving was going to be a bit more generous. Nonetheless, I reckon she enjoyed it. 🙂

I got a smoked portobello mushroom sandwich with avocado (SG$11) and asked for extra steak (SG$4). This was under the “pasta dishes” so I was surprised to get a sandwich. I was too happy with my date to whine, though. Yay to the power of nice people talaga!

It’s like a glorified cheesesteak except slightly healthier. I love the combination of avocado and mushroom but it left half of the bread soggy and the other half hard. The steak pieces, cooked medium well were actually quite tender and seasoned well. It’s a decent sandwich, but I downed my last bite wishing I ordered the prawn pasta instead.

Drury Lane looks like a decent cafe and I’d come back to try their coffee and cakes next time… but if I’m being honest, the highlight of this visit wasn’t particularly the food, but my lunch date. Thanks, Fran! Can’t wait to come back and have more lunch dates (and yoga) with you! x
