The Providore cafe opened its largest store and also the flagship outlet at OUE Downtown Gallery. This outlet covers nearly the entire basement one and includes the deli, bakery, grocery and well, the cafe. It’s huge and makes a pretty good place to stroll around and browse through their produce and offerings. Menu at the cafe is somewhat similar to their existing outlets. The one thing that caught my attention was the array of cakes that was on display. They look so inviting!
It definitely positioned itself well as a lifestyle store with an array of products for sale
The cafe that was located in the corner
Woodbridge Smoked Salmon Bagel $15.50
Cream Cheese, Dill & Shallot Salsa, Watercress
Asked the friend how was her bagel, she said… not very nice leh
Well, I think it definitely looked better
Beef Brisket Sandwich $21.50
Sauteed Onions, Pickles, Dijon Mustard, Providore Cheese on Ciabatta
I had the beef sandwich which was quite bad. There was an overwhelming amount of mustard in the beef and there wasn’t any flavour in the beef brisket. The presentation of the sandwich on a long, flat board also makes it difficult to eat. Presentation, fail. Food, fail
Grilled Ham & Cheese Toastie $14.50
Double Smoked Ham, Fried Egg, Emmental Cheese, Grilled Zucchini, Tomato & Red Pepper Relish on Sourdough
The grilled ham & cheese toastie probably fared the best out of all. Well, I’m glad one tasted good. But honestly, you can make this yourself at home
Fortunately or unfortunately, all of us ordered sandwiches since we never tried their sandwiches before. I remembered their pasta fared averagely better. I think there are certainly better options elsewhere at Downtown Gallery, unless everywhere else is packed and you got nowhere to eat..
