It’s happened before. We’d be wondering “Is there somewhere else we can go?” Other than Drury Lane and The Plain. Somewhere where we won’t feel fleeced, somewhere where the food quality is consistent… (I know everyone has their favourite place and you can be more forgiving if it’s a place you’ve already pledged your loyalty to. But ….)
So someone told us let’s go to Group Therapy at Katong and we weren’t very sure if we were gonna like it (mainly ‘cos we have cafe fatigue) but perhaps it’s always good to have an open mind.
It was that week that lots of trees flowered all over Singapore. We were due to arrive shortly before 12. Somehow we managed to find parking at Katong V easily, and we schlepped across the open air car park, so distracted because there were flowers all over the floor and our feet went “crunch, crunch” and Singapore looked so pretty.
Somehow we managed to get a table within 3 minutes. What a great start to a Saturday, I say.
And the food was good. The hash brown and its sour cream nailed it. Our friend (hi April!) had too many mushrooms, I actually ordered salmon and enjoyed it, and Siew quietly ate up her chicken stew (which wasn’t really a stew but a slab of chicken with a great sauce on top).
Things weren’t cheap but we are supposed to be happy that there’s no service charge. I would have ordered another coffee but there were too many people crowding the entrance, waiting for a seat.
If anyone wants to meet us in our neighbourhood, I think we will have to meet them at Group Therapy.
PS: If you have difficulty looking for it after coming in from East Coast Road, just walk through the NTUC Finest.
