Review Summary:

NOM-Bistro & Bakery may not have their specialty in any of the main course, however, the desserts are something that can help to make up the gaps. There is no GST and Service Charge (voluntary) and fair food quality, for a neighborhood cafe, that will probably help to attract the customers.

NOM Bistro & Bakery (No Other Meaning) @ MacPherson Community Club

NOM Bistro and Bakery 1

NOM-Bistro & Bakery (NOM: No Other Meaning) is found in one of the oldest Public housing estate in Singapore, MacPherson housing estate may deed one of the oldest and smallest in Singapore but this little neighborhood town has never lacked of eateries, in fact, the small town has three food centres all within a radius of few hundred metres apart.

NOM Bistro and Bakery 2

NOM-Bistro & Bakery is located in the MacPherson Community Club, the cafe has relatively simple but spacious dining area with air conditioned in-house and outdoor sheltered area. The cafe has allocated a small kids corner for the young one as well. NOM-Bistro & Bakery specialises in cakes but serves Western cuisine to supplement pastries business.

Truffle fries $9.9

NOM Bistro and Bakery 7

My daughter kept complaining she can’t smell and taste the truffle, however, the rest of us may be luckier and able to taste the truffle oil’s fragrance. The fries were much meatier and not the usual off-the-shelves type thin and machined cut fries.

6AM $14.9

NOM Bistro and Bakery 6

Smoked pork bacon, sauteed mushroom, poached egg and drizzled with salted egg yolk. Waffle was fluffy but tasted to the bland side, the salted egg sauce was a miserably scanty portion that covered in just a bite size area. Salted egg sauce may not be cheap but the serving size has to be well complement the waffle size in order for the diner to enjoy the dish.

Beef Aglio Olio $16.9

NOM Bistro and Bakery 5

 

Main course is not NOM speciality and the Beef Aglio Olio likewise was ordinary, nothing exciting to short about.

Carbonara $14.9

 

NOM Bistro and Bakery 4

Nice cheesy flavour suffused the pasta with the al-dente texture.

Slow Roast Bird Leg $14.9

NOM Bistro and Bakery 9

The bird was not well seasoned with it overall insipid taste, more work required to perk up the flavour of this dull and featureless slow roasted bird.

NOM Bistro and Bakery 8

Classic Choc $6.9 Earl Grey Cheesecake $6.5

NOM Bistro and Bakery 10

NOM-Bistro & Bakery bakes their own cakes, one of our favourites is the Earl Grey cheesecake, the cake come with nice aromatic cheese further boosted by the fragrant of the Earl Grey flavour and the layer of lemon curd on top. A piece of lovely cake indeed.

Rainbow Cheesecake $7.9

NOM Bistro and Bakery 11

Compared to the Earl Grey Cheesecake, the Rainbow Cheesecake was aesthetically pleasing but taste wise somehow not as flavourful as the previous cake. The additional Earl Grey aroma made a clear distinction between the two.

Our verdict on NOM Bistro & Bakery

NOM-Bistro & Bakery may not have their specialty in any of the main course, however, the desserts are something that can help to make up the gaps. There is no GST and Service Charge (voluntary) and fair food quality, for a neighborhood cafe, that will probably help to attract the customers.
