PARK, conveniently located right next to Holland Village MRT, is great for an idyllic afternoon of people-watching and coffee-drinking on your own before gathering a couple of friends together for a night of chilling out over a beer tower. In my opinion, it gives even east-enders like myself sufficient reason to return for more with their yummy food, friendly staff, reasonable prices and an ambience that feels young, modern and upmarket.
Firstly, PARK definitely scores points for being a lovely, versatile cafe-bar: in the day, it presents itself as an all-day brunch spot with brunch staples like Eggs Benedict and Toast Soldiers. Come night time, this cafe is transformed into a charming, swanky bar that offers exactly the respite that one would need from a long day of work with their extensive array of alcoholic beverages. While choices of mains were rather limited, PARK tries to make every one of its dishes count. Also, the place itself is reconstructed out of an old shipping container and there are even solar panels installed to the roof – talk about being eco-friendly!
Parmesan Truffled Fries (S$8.50++). RIDICULOUSLY addictive.
Pesto Chicken Linguine (S$15.50++) Josh enjoyed this but I found it to be a bit heavy. I usually loooove pesto, but this was a little too much for me. Guess that’s the thing about food for you – subject to personal preference. I say give this a go!
