The Terminal Cafe

I wanted to dine near Seletar Aerospace and came across The Terminal Cafe, which was not located within the Seletar Aerospace Park (where all the hip food places are). 

It is located in the Airbus Training Centre. Scandinavian decor, with lots of natural light flooding in. 

We were surprised to find out that only two tables were occupied on a weekend- while the rest of the eateries in Singapore were packed to the brim, here we were on a Saturday afternoon, taking a leisurely and quiet lunch. A rare find! True to its location, there is a table shaped like a plane wing- how cool is that. 

Their menu offers European / Asian food and based on what the cafe uploads on Facebook, the menu seems to frequently change, which means that the people who dine there pretty often will not be bored with the choices available.

The Handmade Tagliatelle with Wild Mushroom in Truffle Sauce ($18) was cooked al dente and the truffle sauce was fragrant, without being overpowering. There was a homely Italian feel to this dish.

We were rather intrigued by the Linguine in Chermoula Sauce & Prawn ($18) and had to google what chermoula sauce was. It turns out that it is a popular sauce in Morocco. The sauce was like a breath of fresh air (because we never tried this before) and the generous portion of prawns was fresh and bouncy.

We also ordered a muffin and a scoop of ice cream thereafter, both of which were decent.

While our initial thoughts were that the prices were a little steep for an office cafeteria, we realised that the standard of the food here was far superior to your usual office cafeteria- this is a serious cafe with serious food and their prices reflect the quality of the food. If you want good food in a relaxing environment without the craze of the usual Saturday lunch crowd, this is for you.
