Flock Cafe @ Blk 21 Ghim Moh Road

Following the success of their flagship outlet at 78 Moh Guan Terrace in the heart of Tiong Bahru, Flock Cafe has opened their second branch in yet another neighbourhood estate- Ghim Moh. Bringing cafe food to the heartlands seems to be Flock’s formula for success and evidently, it is working. We dropped by on a Sunday afternoon and found that the place was packed with families. Seeing elderly folks sipping on a cup of latte while their teenage grandchildren chowed down burgers and pastas was apparently not an uncommon sight here.

Though the menu here at the Ghim Moh branch is quite similar to the one at Moh Guan Terrace, there are some specials such as the Homemade Nyonya Fish & Prawn Patty and Spicy Chicken Katsu Burgers that are only available here. We ordered their pasta items- the Pork Cheek Tortiglioni $14 and Sauteed Prawn and Dried Shrimp Linguini $14 which were both modest in portion. The latter with its bits of dried shrimp and touch of spring onions added to the pasta an oriental flair that was quite refreshing. This was certainly fusion done right.

From their All Day Breakfast, we had their Cheeky Eggs $14 and Brioche French Toast $12– these two are also available at their flagship outlet. While I did think that the former was a tad smaller in portion as I remembered it to be, the french toast was rightfully hearty and even had chopped sweet apples in the mix for some crunch. Doused in maple syrup and topped with a couple of bacon strips, this was still as good as when I first had it.

For desserts, there were several cakes on display and we picked the three that caught our eye- Banoffee $5.50Carrot $5.50 and Chocolate $6.50. The cakes here are also from the same supplier as the one in Moh Guan Terrace so the choices are more or less the same too. My personal favourite was the Chocolate with its alternating layers of thick fudge and sponge that was not too sweet and sufficiently moist. For those who need your cup of coffee to accompany your sweets, the beans are from Liberty Coffee’s Speakeasy Blend.

I am really glad that there is one more cafe in the West that is also closer to home. Though its location is rather atypical, with its penchant for affordable pricing and homely fare, I am sure that the residents of Ghim Moh will begin warming up to Flock Cafe and embrace it as part of the neighbourhood.
