If Marmalade Pantry in ION Orchard is your must-go-to spot to rest your tired feet after a hectic day of shopping, then their sister outlet, the Pantry at the Stables, located in a hidden corner of Bukit Timah on Fairways Drive, will be your best hideout place for a romantic date or any family gathering.

Set in a stylish colonial terrace with a seating of 64 diners indoors and 24 in the alfresco, this modern casual bistro is oozing rural charm and rustic character. This all-day bakery and bistro in lush greenery is set to delight its diners with its modern bistro cuisine, offering all-day a la carte dinner menus, a 3-course set dinner menu ($38++) with selections that change every 2 weeks, all-day bakery, afternoon tea set on weekdays ($20++ per person) and all-day weekend brunch menus. Kid’s menus are also available.

We started our meal with their Mexican Chicken Salad ($22), served with crispy tortilla, chunks of avocado, chickpeas, spiced corn and topped with salsa bits. Bursting with magnificent flavours, colors and differing textures, this Mexican-twist to the usual chicken salad has a new surprise in every bite. From the crunchy chips to the melt-in-your-mouth avocado and zesty salsa, this salad is like a fiesta on a plate.

Another starter we’ve tried is the Pan-seared Halloumi with roma tomatoes and watercress herb salad ($21). The Halloumi cheese has a mellow, mildly salty flavour and the combination of fresh tomatoes and herbs give this dish a real zing that works perfectly. However, we were kind of disappointed with the Halloumi cheese as it was a bit undercook and it was a bit too firm to our liking. If not, this dish would have been a healthy and perfect appetizer.

For the main, the Braised 120 Days Grain Fed Beef Cheeks ($32) is a must-try. Served on a bed of horseradish mash with field mushrooms, asparagus and pearl onions, the braised beef cheek was cooked to perfection and it was tender and melt-in-your-mouth. The horseradish mash was tasty yet not over powering.

Then came the Crabmeat Linguine ($22) with pine nuts, tomatoes and chilli, which at first looked like classic linguine pasta drenched in our favourite local chilli crab gravy. Putting a traditional Italian dish to a twist, this chilli crab linguine-wannabee was a let down. Although the pasta was cooked to al dente but the spicy tomato sauce lacked the spicy punch or the chilli crab flavours we were anticipating. It was also a tad dry to our liking. If you are a pasta lover, go for their Spaghetti Carbonara ($24) instead.

A meal at Pantry at the Stables is not complete until you’ve eaten their desserts. Choose from a selection of cupcakes ($4.50 each) such as their signature Red Velvet – a crimson cupcake with coconut and cream cheese frosting and the Elvis – a chocolate banana cake with peanut butter frosting. Their citrus twist on the traditional classic, Lemon Brulee Tart ($14) is one of our favourites on the dessert menu. The tangy lemon curd with a scoop of ice cream sorbet adds a nice citrus tang to this light and elegant tart.
