Lunch Uptown

Rounded up the girlfriends to lunch at the rather quiet DW Workshop. Actually, it's their idea, since they frequent the area at Buona Vista and Rochester Park. DW Workshop is an event and design space and bistro rolled into one. Very cheerful and brightly lit. No they don't offer wifi. But the coffee's pretty good. They do cold pressed juices too, which is a bonus to me. Freshly squeezed juices are my dessert.

During lunch hours, they open at 11.30am and close at 2.30pm. I understand its dinner and weekend brunch menus are different. At lunch, they only offer three versions of hearty salad-grain bowls, which worked fine for us. Vegetarian options are of course available, with the main of the day being a grilled Japanese eggplant. Meat mains would be either a pan seared duck breast or a grilled rib-eye. That day, they had a special of a savoy cabbage stuffed with pork. They girlfriends opted to try that. Grains offered are brown rice, red quinoa or basmati rice. Nice. At S$19, these lunch bowls are comparable to CBD prices, and the ingredients are decent.

Always a joy to sit down with these girlfriends. Glad everyone takes the effort to make and keep a date. Sometimes, I really miss having their reassuring company in a work setting. Oof. I've got a flood of new projects that I wanted some advice about. I can bounce off ideas with them, and we're in touch with one another's lives to offer practical comments and honest opinions.
