I think, out of all the brunch places in Singapore Rider’s cafe was definitely the one I look forward the most. It was also the most elusive as it gets incredibly busy on weekends and walking in without a reservation is risky since it’s located in the middle of nowhere.
I’ve tried making reservation twice before and was denied since I didn’t book them fast enough so this time I called a week before, and I can only manage to get a 2pm reservation on a Sunday, one hour before they end their brunch menu.
They have quite a range of menu, making it hard for me to choose, but in the end I settled with my usual brunch option – aptly named ‘The Usual’ with scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, grilled tomato, mushroom and a piece of (really good) sourdough bread for S$15 (or was it 16? i can’t remember for sure).
The food was really good. Bacon was the thick kind, not the thin cripsy kind. The mushroom and tomato were excellent. Sausage was delicious. I have to reiterate again how GOOD the sourdough bread is and i’m usually not a bread person! The portion was good for one person. I was really full by the end of it, though we did order a jug of Stella and I had 2-3 glasses of it.
Two of my brunch companions also shared their Rider’s burger, which was decent sized and came with a LOT of fries. The burger itself was also tasty but I didn’t get a picture of it.
The verdict? well yeah, i’ll come back here, but only for special occasions since it’s not like we can just walk in and their location isn’t the most convenient. I still highly recommend the place for its unique ambient and excellent food though.
