If you are an avid Instagram user, you might have seen insanely photogenic dishes of Paddy Hills taking the platform by storm. This Australian-inspired cafe by day and tapas bar by night prides itself in its choice of location by being away from crowd, so that diners can indulge in the food comfortably without the hubbubs of the city.
And by the way, if you recall, this unit used to be a part of many of our childhoods. It was where the former Lim Seng Lee Braised Duck used to be at.
Not only does Paddy Hills whip up gorgeously plated mains, you can also step outside to the famous doodle wall to capture your #ootd moments.
With its spacious seating and a coffee bar planted in the middle of the cafe, you will be sure to catch a glimpse of the barista in action. The coffee here are hand-brewed using Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee Beans.
For squid ink lovers, you have to try their Squid Ink Tagliatelle (S$24) that is served with pan seared scallops, and rice puffs for an added crunch. The ikura and tobikko added a creative texture to the tangy pasta with a resounding burst of flavours.
Alas, the widely acclaimed Berry Ricotta Hotcakes (S$19)! This beauty won our hearts with its crisp texture and crumbly batter, topped with an assortment of berries, mascarpone and flower petals. It was like a garden served on a plate; insanely gorgeous. Maple syrup was also tucked in between the batter to keep the pancakes moist.
