Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe, Seletar Airport: Ticking All The Boxes on the Hipster Checklist

soek-seng-1954-bicycle-cafe-seletar-airportSoek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe at Seletar is so far-flung that you must either drive or, if you’re an above-mid-20s facing a mid-life crisis, cycle there. Because the food is so terrible at Wheeler’s Yard, I thought Soek Seng would be the same, but I was wrong.

soek-seng-1954-bicycle-cafe-singapore-reviewThe food is something that can be found at hawker centres, from lambchop ($17.80) to beef rendang ($8.20), with prices ranging from $6 to $22.80 (ribeye steak). The most popular items are ayam pangang ($8.20) and katsu don ($6).

soek-seng-1954-bicycle-cafe-seletar-reviewMr Fitness thinks the katsu don ($6, below) is terrible. “The chicken cutlet is not even freshly fried and the rice isn’t even nice,” he said. But I thought it is edible for the price and I found it addictive.

bicycle-cafe-singaporeMany things on the plate of mega beef burger ($15.80, below) can be from suppliers: the chips, the fries, and the bun and cheese of the burger. And the burger is SOOO tiny. BUT the patty is super delicious. It’s charred outside, but middle-rare inside, cooked very well. It has crispy bits embedded in the patty, and tastes almost Asian, almost. It’s a unique take on burger, and I like it very much.

bicycle-cycle-seletar-airportIncluding two cups of not-bad coffee, we paid $30.80 for two persons. The overall experience is not bad, but I wish they can showcase more of the culinary skills, and make more things, rather than heat up items, and get from suppliers.
