Woody Family Café is a cozy located in a private estate just off Sembawang park. It used to be located where Handle bar first restaurant was located near the Singapore Canoe center. The location is rather isolated and getting there involves driving or taking an Uber or Grab in. There are no notable nearby MRT stations in this private estate. There are free roadside parking if may.
Interestingly, the restaurant cafe establishment is set in a rather quirky setting which looks like right set in someone’s private house front yard. After all, Woody’s is located in a residential private neighborhood.
Furthermore, Woody café opens till about 11pm, making the restaurant a rather compelling dinner place. At night it is lit with an array of outdoor lights. This is stringed all about the ceilings and draped on the wall with notable decorative items.
A fusion menu
Moreover, let’s take alook at their food offerings. At its heart, Woody’s is an Asian fusion restaurant, with emphasis on Peranakan food. There is À la carte Peranakan food which you can order zi-char style to go with rice or you option for a western menu.
Notably, Woody’s also runs regular set menu specials. They are typically priced at $60 for 4 pax. Also, it is rather affordable with servings of Perankan favourites, such as Sambal chicken, Fish fillet Tempua, Babu Ponteh, Masak Garam Chicken, Sambal prawns and even Beef Rendang. Do try their Beef Randang, though it is one of the more sinful menu offerings here. Also do have a palate for spicy food, as that is the signature flavour of Perankan dishes.
Try their burgers
I am more of a western burger person, so in this visit, I shall be covering less on the Peranakan food. Woody café homemade burgers and fried chicken wings with varying levels of spiciness. Their burgers are plain but effective. Topped in small off the shelf buns with a juicy patty and fired egg. It is also paired with a side of fries. They are similarly price to Wolf burgers, but not as awesome in quality.
Moreover, do try their buffalo wings, with 9 levels of spicy levels. They come in half and full dozen portions with prices starting from $18.90 to $38.90.
Burgers are priced in the range of $16.90 and under $20 per pop. Rendang Beef Burger, Satay Chicken burger, Otah, club and Mama Laska Burger. Wrapping up their western food selections are more pricey premium offerings, such as Angus Ribeye steak at $36, Fried chicken at $29.90, Guinness braised lamb shank $28.90. There are also Baby back ribs $28.90.
All in all, the food at Woody Café is something worth trying, especially if you are in the Sembawang area, and if you are craving Peranakan food. It would be worth the trip!
