Checked out the new Prairie; a new all-day dining concept by the same folks behind Craftsmen Specialty Coffee which had recently opened its doors at Cluny Court where Bar Bar Black Sheep was formerly at — enter through the entrances either beside the car workshop beside Serene Centre, or the side alley beside the car park of Cluny Court for access into the cafe. While the outlets for Craftsmen Specialty Coffee are more known for their industrial design theme with heavy use of wooden and metallic elements for its furnishings, Prairie does give off a more soothing vibe that is modern and slightly rustic with the use of tiled walls and terrazzo-esque table tops — something pretty that is comforting and easy on the eyes; the cafe also comes with a rather well-sized alfresco dining that does remind us of Apollo Coffee Bar’s backyard space quite a fair bit as well.

Prairie’s menu is pretty extensive, with sections dedicated to brunch dishes, dishes featuring the land (meat), air (poultry) and sea (seafood), starters, salads, pasta, burgers and pizzas, with other items such as sweet treats (dessert) and pastries to choose from. The Shredded Duck Pasta was one of the items that stood out whilst skimming through the menu here — features elements such as Fettucini, Slow-Cooked Duck, Garlic, Sage, Cream Sauce and Shaved Parmesan. An item sure to appease fans of cream pasta, the Fettucini is done al-dente; all laced in a good amount of cream sauce that provides sufficient flavour without being overwhelming — the sage occasionally helping to add a herb-y note that provides the dish with some contrast, while the duck meat comes tender and lends a savoury note that gives the dish a slight meatiness with every twirl of the pasta with the fork. The shaved parmesan does help to add yet another dimension of savouriness, though would go even better if it’s shaved even thinner to further integrate it to the pasta, while the garlic also did not carry quite the flavour punch that I was looking for to cut through the savoury and creamy elements.

Despite the lack of prominence in certain elements of the pasta, those are probably just the more finer details that otherwise is not too big of an issue overall — the pasta is still pretty decent in its own right, and is an item that I would not mind having again. Prairie is almost like Craftsmen Specialty Coffee’s grown up sibling — a little bit more refined, and also certainly slightly more upmarket with prices inching towards $30 before taxes especially for the mains. That being said, it’s environment and it’s offerings would resonate well with cafe-goers in general — a spot that cafehoppers should check out!
