Smoke Out at Sarnies

Feeling blah? Let's Smoke Out!

To celebrate their second anniversary, Cute Cute and Cuchi decided to partake of a Smoke Out at Sarnies along Telok Ayer Street. It's really rare that a cafe in Singapore would do something special like this just for the sheer thrill of it.

The Smoke Out started in the early evening as the diners sat casually around the small but carefully assembled smoker. It got off, quite honestly, to a rather slow and sputtering start. But there were no complains from the good-natured diners as they mingled, bantering boisterously and taking in the cool evening air.

Let's get the fire started man.

Cute Cute and Cuchi were rather thrilled too as they did not expect the wines that night to be from Portugal. Ah... it took them many years back when they backpacked in that beautiful country and they were introduced to the very friendly importers of Portuguese wines in Singapore.

Sarnies Coffee - one of the best in Singapore,
well-balanced and really smooth with fruity notes
and pleasant acidity.

accompanied by Port wine
It was certainly a most memorable affair. One rarely get the opportunity to sit alfresco under the stars in the midst of heritage buildings enjoying a casual Smoke Out session. In all, the 3 courses with wine pairing at $39 for dinner was also a steal.
