Singapore: Five & Dime

15 Mar

After dinner at UE Square we were looking for a dessert & drinks place nearby. Thankfully there’s Five & Dime along River Valley Road – a new bistro that is supposedly a modern take of an American diner in the 60s that is just a short drive away.

Stylish decor

Chairs with Tiffany blue legs

Cute flowers and sugar hearts on our table (it was V-day!)

Five & Dime serves food including a weekend brunch, but since we were there post dinner, we were just looking for some drinks and cakes. They have quite a big menu of drinks – cocktails, wine, beer (including some craft beers), mocktails, coffee, tea etc. Think PS Cafe.

We tried some of their cupcakes on display. These were the sea salt caramel cupcake and Guinness stout mini cupcakes. My friend found them a little dry, but I thought they were okay. I liked the flavour of the Guinesss stout ones – they didn’t stinge on the stout!

Iced lemonade

Little Creatures Pale Ale – loved it!

Iced mocha with marshmallow topping

And for me, a cocktail of course :) This was the Asian inspired Gin & Jade ($18) – lychee liquor, lemon, gin, pandan syrup. I’m a sucker for anything pandan and liked the light vanilla-ish taste here.

Since we didn’t eat there, I can’t comment on the food. But for a drinks and (some) desserts place, I thought it was a-okay, nothing to shout about but it’s a quiet place to chill at night. I wouldn’t travel to River Valley area for it but if I’m in the area, sure why not. I took a glance at the food menu and they have the standard fare like fish and chips, cajun chicken, steak, and a weekend brunch menu. If you do try dining there, let me know it goes!
