As the saying goes, the grass is always greener on the other side — this saying holds true especially if one is trying to look for light bites that are out of the usual in SIM; just head over to Ngee Ann Polytechnic from the rear gate (both campuses are interlinked) and options are aplenty over there.

From Food At The Source, taking over The Hotdog Stand at [email protected] or rather, Smooch Cafe @ 72 way back in the days when I was still studying there (they are now Cupplets btw); Food At The Source serves smoothies, waffles, Swiss rolls and sandwiches — easy, quick bites for students looking to sneak a bite in between classes or to munch on something while working on projects. The Houjicha Swiss Roll felt more spongy than light and fluffy, but the matcha cake carries a light but evident tea aroma that was of a balanced and tasteful bitterness which made the Houjicha buttercream taste of a rather flat roastiness without much depth. That being said, $2 is pretty much decent for a slice if you are looking for something light — spares me from eating one too many wanton on sticks (my guilty food) in between tightly packed classes.
