The WorkBench Bistro - Ang Mo Kio

There are gradually more cafes opening in the estates of Ang Mo Kio and a colleague happened to tell me there's one just near my block (which is nearer to AMK swimming complex). It is also located along the stretch of shops where I often went to the hair salon in the past. I think it is less than a year old. 

I have been to this cafe 2 times these 2 months for dinner & brunch with colleagues and sister respectively.

It's a very simple cafe with not much crowd the 2 times I went. AND you know what? I'm addicted to the truffle fries here! I do not have to travel far for truffle fries now. The coffee blend is good too, a place for quick caffeine fix. 


I had iced latte ($5.50) with colleagues the other time, while the colleagues tried the Citrus Crush ($6). We also ordered a truffle fries ($8) to share too.

The truffles fries are not oily, dry & very crispy which I liked alot! The colleagues also ordered Carbonara pasta & chilli crab linguine (I did not take photos) which I did not really like the taste.  

We also ordered a waffle with rocky road & salted caramel ice-cream to share ($11.50). The waffle is crispy with a thin airy feeling inside and the rocky road ice-cream is superb. The salted caramel doesn't leave a deep impression on me so I don't want to comment much.    

The sister and me went on another separate occasion and I ordered the truffle fries again and a crab meat  pasta ($16.00) to share. I had a Cappuccino ($4.50) while the sister had a Hot Chocolate ($4.50).

The pasta was so-so, maybe because the tomato taste is quite strong which makes it a little sour-ish. If the sour taste could be lessened, I think it would make a perfect pasta. 

I think I will only go to this cafe for their coffee, truffle fries & waffles whenever I have these cravings since it is so near my block. 

There's NO service charge & GST too! :)
