Fuel Plus rested under the foot of Mount Faber, surrounded with greens is the sister cafe of Refuel at Bedok. When I saw the address 16 Morse Road, I thought it was familiar and then realised that it took over the space of 93 Degree C Coffee. For those who have never patronised the 93 Degree, you can’t spot the cafe along Morse Road, instead, turn right into Wishart Road from Morse Road if you are coming from Telok Blangah Road.
The raw space where it was occupied by 93 Degree C Coffee previously has now transformed into a hipster looking Aussie-style one. Fuel Plus cafe has cleverly uses different tiles on various walls, pillars, counters and even on the floor to provide the different texture instead of just plain white cafe. It has elements that captivate.
Even though it has an A3 size one page, it has lots to offer. On the menu were 7 sections; Beverages, Desserts, Cakes, Eggs & Such, Mains & Burgers, Pastas & Salads, lastly being Bites.
The commonly found espresso-based coffee is also provided at Fuel Plus. There isn’t anything usual or special under this section. As usual my choice Espresso-based coffee is the Cappuccino ($5) which has a medium body, pretty low acidity and mainly nutty note.
For diners who prefer tea could opt for the Tea by pot ($5.50) or the recommended Fuel Ice Tea ($5). Other options include the Shakes and Sodas. I tried the Raspberry Basil Soda ($6.50) which is lightly sweet and nice basil fragrance.
I have not tried any breaky items under the Eggs & Such. I dived into the “Mains & Burgers” and picked What e Crab Burger ($16). Basically, this is a deep fried softshell crab sandwiched between a burger bun with a bed of shredded cucumber and wasabi mayo and lots of roe. By the burger side is shoe string fries. As long as you like softshell crab, you can’t go wrong.
We went for the Baked Chicken Stew ($17) as it is a recommended dish by Fuel Plus. I was surprised to find the chicken tasty and not too heavy in tomato sauce.
Beef Ragu Pappardelle ($18) was my pick from the Pastas & Salads section. This is a recommended dish by Fuel Plus. This dish uses Pappardelle as the pasta mixed with herby tomato sauce, mainly rosemary herb. The beef was cooked in the same sauce. It was tender.
Fuel Plus serves quite a number of pretty plating desserts. The Pump it Up Hotcake ($16) and The Wicked French Toast ($15) both are the recommendation by Fuel Plus has enticing look. We went for Pump It Up Hotcake ($16) as it is a dish great for the instagram square. It is a very pretty platting dish. The hotcake is fluffy and thick surrounded and covered with diced strawberry, whole blueberry, pomegranate and pistachio. This is a Fuel Plus recommended dish too.
Instead I went for the Homemade Apple Crumble ($9) as I thought this might be smaller in portion suitable. The granny smith chunk were perfectly caramelized and the crunchiness remains. It was topped with granola instead of the usual butter crumbs. Finally, it was topped with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream.
Limited cake varieties were served at Fuel Plus too.
I thought well of Fuel Plus. At the very least, the food I tried were delish though not sure about the rest. I like the ambience too and its location, since it is accessible by public transport with minimal walking in a quaint environment.
