Oriole Cafe, 313 Somerset

Oriole Cafe at 313 Somerset is probably one of our favourite cafes. The vibe is relaxing and unique without the feel of a mall haunt. The food is pretty good and arguably reasonably priced for a Orchard Road cafe. The fish tacos and Cubano are right up there, but this time round, we tried different dishes. 

Without a doubt, one of the better Caesar Salads out there. I might have preferred a heavier crackling of black pepper but other than that, it was pretty much perfect. 

Yup, and this happened. Country fried steak, or more commonly known as Chicken Fried Steak. A slab of sirloin deep-fried, served on a heap of garlic roasted mashed potatoes, bacon, sunny side-up egg and truffle béchamel sauce. Hearty heavy stuff. Schedule a nap after this. 

Creamy and comforting, the Pukka pie is a not-so-humble chicken pie. Size makes for a good adult snack or kid's main dish. We ordered this for the kids but adults had fun with it too.
