Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan

It’s another cafe post! What can I say, I really like cafes.

There’s just something about kicking back to chill out and have a nice cup of coffee or tea, with some sweet and savoury goodies. Better on weekends, but hey, makes for a nice and relaxing weekday lunch too.

Stirling Highway takes the place of Haato at the sleepy Ridgewood Close condominium, tucked away at a corner of Ulu Pandan, so it is understandably pretty quiet during weekdays.

It is a small cafe and can probably only fit around 25-30 people at maximum. They could’ve laid out the tables more efficiently, but hey, I suppose they wanted to keep it as a casual, spacious place.

What a happy, colourful pasta!

We went for the recommended dishes, the Pesto Prawn Spaghetti ($16) and the Pulled Pork Pancakes ($14).

Both were quite pleasant and enjoyable, the pasta with a good kick of pesto and fresh crunchy prawns and tomatoes. I felt the spaghetti could have been a bit more al dente, but it was alright.

Mmmmm pancakes + butter + whiskey sauce, yummy!

The Pulled Pork Pancakes, wow. Not quite the usual thick sort but I liked it anyway as they were soft and fluffy, and went really well with the savoury tender pork and smoky Jack Daniel’s sauce.

The various elements of the dish came together surprisingly well – I particularly enjoyed the mild whisky aftertaste in every bite.

For desserts, we had the Salted Caramel Tart and a slice of the Strawberry Cheese/Shortcake.

The tart was lovely – it had a nice balance of salty and sweet flavours and was a great close to the meal.

I also tried the Ice Wine Tea, which was really fragrant and light. Very enjoyable!
