Oh Carol! Cafe & Bistro

31 October 2009


Mondays are usually "special lunch days" with the best friend as we try to find new places for lunch after our astronomy lecture. The latest lunch saw us at Oh Carol! Cafe & Bistro at Buona Vista Biopolis, a place we expected to find scientists in white lab coats but instead could only see ordinary-looking people. But hey, we're here more for the food of course.

Cheese Fries: 4.5/5


The cheese fries were delicious and really one of the best I've had. The fries came thick, hot and crispy just as I like them to be, and the cheese was not too sour nor pungent. People who prefer "soggy" fries could always head to Fromage at Cityvibe, which isn't too far away.

Seafood Cheese Baked Rice: 3.5/5


I really wanted to try their "homemade" beef burger but I just had a case of heartburn (too much fast food haha!) and decided to go a bit easy and get the baked rice instead. It turned out okay, simple indeed but with adequate portions of fish fillet, squids and a few prawns.

Salmone Pasta


The best friend's pasta, featuring smoked salmon in white wine cream suace. She said it was good, the taste of the smoked salmon managed to balance out the (slightly heavy) cream sauce. She also likes the addition of mushrooms as they give the dish a nice aroma, making it just a bit better than the one from Coffee Club.

Service
Very good.

Price
$4.90 for the cheese fries
$9.90 for the seafood baked rice
$12.90 for the salmone pasta

You wouldn't want to dine with people in their lab coats, trust me... Those coats aren't that clean...

*Sigh* They don't have the 1-for-1 pasta special anymore... if not you will be surprised how crowded this place can be...

The Carol burger used to be very huge but now it seems to be a normal sized burger, patty alittle starchy though... but I have to give it to their chocolate fondant, not bad for its price tag...

If u happen to come by Biopolis again, you might want to try Onaka, which is at Immunos. Olive rice on Thurs, Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Tofu and Avocado Salads are worth dieting for...

Hello Fen :)

You sound like you go Biopolis often, do you work there?? I saw the fondant in the fridge and it didn't look thaaat promising. Now that you said it, maybe I'll go try next time!

Do come meet us for an outing soon, prob in the middle of this month. We're probably do desserts, and I would think you're the BEST person to come! :)

I'll keep you updated :)

Tentatively its on a Sunday afternoon. Trying to get the attention of the rest as well, guess they might be a little busy these days haha.

Hang in there with work, busy weeks and months will always tide over sooner or later :)
