Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe is a hidden cafe that is situated far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The owner is a vintage bike collector who proudly displays his beautiful vintage bicycles all around the cafe. Needless to say, we were all in awe of the cafe’s lovely interior.
Besides that, having a meal at this bike cafe is a unique experience in itself. Diners are able to watch private airplanes take off from Seletar Airport which is located just beside the bike cafe. How cool is that?!
However as one of the most ulu cafes in Singapore, is it really worth the effort to make all your way there for a meal? Well, read on to find out more!
Grab a seat outdoors during good weather and have your meal while admiring the private jets parked at Seletar Airport. If you are lucky, you may even catch sightings of planes taking off or landing!
Psst… let us share a secret with you. Come around evening so you can witness the sunset. This is one of the rare few places in Singapore where there are no high rise buildings around so you get a complete view of the reddish and orange hues.
Visitors can also choose to sit comfortably indoors as it is air conditioned. Wander around the cafe and take pictures of these classic bicycles and artwork that have been artistically hung up on the wall.
Our first dish was the Katsu Don (S$7.80). Arriving piping hot in a stone bowl, the Katsu Don came with thick slices of juicy chicken slices, savoury egg, sauteed onions and bits of seaweed and carrots on top of warm Japanese rice.
While we enjoyed the dish, it would have been better if the sauce is less salty.
Just like what you would expect from a good plate of fish and chips, the Fish & Chips (S$11.80) at Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe had a crispy batter which we enjoyed with some tar tar sauce.
Every order of the Fish & Chips comes with french fries, fresh coleslaw and salad.
Their menu is a combination of local, western and Japanese mains that are mostly below S$20. Other highlights you can go for include the Sirloin Steak (S$15), Ayam Panggang (S$10.80) and Unatamadon (S$8.80).
A trip out to explore a hidden side of Singapore accompanied with affordable cafe fare? We would say that Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe is worth the trip!
