Arbite @ Serangoon Garden Way
Arbite: A pun on the german/danish word for work (arbeit/arbejde).
Work? work?! Work on a weekend.. no, not this weekend! It is catchup time with my girlfriends as we have not met for ages and we have decided on Arbite upon my suggestion!
Arbite is located on level 2 of the shophouses behind the Serangoon Garden Circus round-about, directly above Guardian.
Entrance, is a tiny door in between Sushi Tei and Guardian, and you will have to climb up a flight of staircases, with “holes” in the wall filled with lego bricks, to reach the restaurant. Once you reach level 2, you can see the queue of people waiting for a seat and the entire cafe.
Lego Bricks in the wall.
We were lucky that we managed to get a reservation the night before and had no issues getting a seat when we arrived at our appointed time. Do note that your reserved seat will only be held for 15min after which it will be released to the walk-in customers. So for your own sake, do be punctual.

Another side of the simple interior. The restaurant was running at full capacity with a young crowd when we arrived.
Menu is simple, just 2 pages. For the full menu, refer here
As I had set out for the All Day Breakfast, I zoomed down on my order rather quickly. 😛
Close up of my Arbite breakfast, $15.90. A good spread of soft and yummy scrambled eggs , bacon (a little too fatty for my liking), baked beans, grilled tomato, veal bratwurst, sautéed mushrooms, toasted brioche and pommes noisettes (balls of hash browns).
You may be thinking where is the toasted brioche? Oh well, it was missed out and they made up for it on a separate plate. 😛
My friend order the Grilled Moroccan Chicken, $15.9
Close up of the nicely marinated chicken in thigh in Moroccan spices served with pilaf rice, salad and tomato olive salsa. The tasting piece of the chicken that I got from my friend was juicy and well marinated and you can smell the nice aroma of the spice even before you pop it into your mouth. 🙂
Ice Mint Tea, $5 that one of my friends ordered too. Icy and minty ;P
A nice cosy place for good food that does not put a big hole in your pocket 🙂 Will be back to try the Frittata or the Gardener French Toast that is recommended by “Singapore’s best daily breakfast” in Timeout Singapore!
How can a girls catchup end with no pretty desserts? Read on to see where we went.. 🙂
