Selected this place as the our yearly gathering location with my ex-SingTel colleagues as it as conveniently located in town and easy for all of us to get to. I was surprised that the place was relatively empty for a Sunday morning as we reached around 11.30am for brunch. Just go straight up the external escalator near Victoria’s Secret and you’ll find Providore.
Spanish Baked Eggs
Two free range eggs baked on grilled chorizo sausage in spicy tomato sauce with smoked paprika and shaved manchego cheese. I find it a bit too spicy but the eggs were pretty yummy but they were pretty stingy on the sausage. Bread was so so and not outstanding. Overall I find the dishes a tad salty.
Crab Linguini Pasta
With sundried tomato, bird’s eye chili, fresh basil and The Providore’s No.3 Olive Oil. This was the lightest tasting and was a pretty standard pasta dish. Did not leave munch of an impression.
Lobster Mac & Cheese
With shaved fennel & fresh dill baked in a cast iron pan. This was pretty rich due to the cheese and fortunately the serving is not huge else it will be quite jialat – this was the most salty dish.
