This is for the fitness junkies.
The 4-storey Trapeze Rec. Club is a membership-based wellness club found at Tanjong Pagar, and features a curation of services.
These include yoga studio, gym, an outdoor sauna and cold plunge, reflexology, consult rooms, and in-class programming, what you call an all-in-one stop.
The team also has plans to bring together health practitioners from a myriad of disciplines including mental health, Traditional Chinese Medicine and physiotherapy under one roof.
You may ask, what does this got to do with food (which is what we solely write about)?
There is an in-house café called the “Canteen” hidden within.
Just so you know, the wellness-focused lifestyle company founded by former management consultant GJ Wee. If you find the name vaguely familiar, the fitness enthusiast is the youngest child of UOB chief executive officer Wee Ee Cheong.
Canteen by Trapeze Rec. Club features a limited menu of toasts, coffee, and smoothies made with healthy and organically sourced ingredients.
The menu also includes an array of sweet and savoury Ayurvedic yoghurt bowls, along with bakes from local partners such as Pickle Bakery.
Ayurveda? This is accordingly a traditional Indian system of medicine, and the café infuse Ayurvedic elements such as Ashwagandha, Macca and Moringa into their food products.
There are four types of toasts available for now, which include Hummus Avocado ($14.80), Smashed Avocado ($14.80), Eggs & Kaya ($8), PB&J ($8) and PB&B ($8).
I had the recommended Hummus Avocado ($14.80) with almond butter hummus and sliced of avocado, made more special with the topping of Lao Gan Ma – a popular brand of chilli oil called “old godmother”.
There is also an interesting-sounding Spicy Dan Dan Yoghurt Bowl ($14.80) which is a savoury yoghurt bowl with sous vide egg, chilli oil, sesame, peanut butter and more. This has been their bestseller.
I went for the safer choice of Honey Mango Lassi ($12.80), a refreshing tangy bowl of mango, bee pollen, granola and Greek yoghurt.
Still at its starting phase, I see this as a place of numerous possibilities.
