White Rabbit, Dempsey

We had a great time at White Rabbit to celebrate Swee Yan's birthday. This is my first time at White Rabbit after hearing loads of stuff about the place, mostly about how it is very beautiful and perfect for a wedding. It is indeed incredibly beautiful with its charming stained glass, high ceiling, large spacious dining area and sunny outdoor area. I can totally understand why people love the White Rabbit.

As with all other charming and beautiful places, White Rabbit (being in Dempsey) is rather inaccessible and you have to either drive or take a cab to reach there. It is also situated away from the cluster of dining establishments right in the center of Dempsey Road so you might take a while to locate it. I found myself lost somewhere along the winding road with the taxi uncle and ended up on the other side of the road at Au Petit Salut. The uncle commented that it was ulu. I have to agree. 

As White Rabbit is housed in a restored chapel, the stained glass was definitely an eye catching feature of the place.

I had a cup of Flat White ($8) and the White Rabbit Fry Up ($26). Pretty latte art with pretty decent coffee.

Truffle fries for sharing. It was not on the menu but we asked and we received yay!

The White Rabbit Fry Up ($26) came with eggs of any style (I chose poached of course), thick cut smoked bacon, pork sausage, grilled portobello mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, toast and greens. This was so good. The poached eggs were perfect and I am so in love with the thick cut bacon! Portions are huge and worth the price. I cannot stand cafes which charge $20+ for a miserable serving of pathetic food. The White Rabbit Fry Up was definitely hearty and happy!

After we finished our food, we headed outdoors and were so impressed by the well manicured lawn, and the set of black and white high stools, bar and deck chairs. Seriously, everything looked so pretty and... foreign. I felt like I ran into a country house somewhere far far away (although, of course, the weather and mosquitoes made me fully aware that hey, I'm in sunny tropical Singapore. Stop dreaming!).

Beauty comes with a price and the prices at White Rabbit are generally higher. But the service, deco and food more than made up for it. White Rabbit is definitely a place to be for nice occasions when you don't mind spending the extra dollar! Swee Yan's birthday was definitely a very good reason for us to celebrate a happy occasion :)))
