More than a little inconvenient to get to for a westie like me, Meyer House located in the Civil Service Club at Changi is worth a trip down just for their view and comforting spread. Overlooking the Changi beach, you too, can dine al fresco with their menu that features both western and asian delights. Great for a quiet, cosy brunch affair with friends or family.

Having a taste of Asia with their Indonesian Beef ‘Rendang’ ($18), the slow cooked beef cheeks, best with a spoonful of blue tea flower rice, was tender and nicely balance with the taste of mixed spices and herbs. The usual accompaniment, crispy discs of papadum, also added a fun texture to the dish. On the side, we had Devil’s Wings ($10) which gave a good spicy kick with the mackerel fish paste (otah) stuffing.

Paired with an elegant cup of Earl Grey, the strong and robust flavours of the meats went surprisingly well with the floral notes of the tea. With a tinge of citrus from the orange wedge, the tea was able to slightly cleanse the palate, cut the richness and really enhance the flavours.

Thank you Burpple for the invite as well as Dilmah and Foodcult PR for the hospitality!
