Right in the heart of Raffles Place, Socks and Pans is a simple retreat from the hustle and bustle outside. It is not only a delight to coffee lovers, but also to those looking for quality breakfast and meals that's value for money in the CBD.
Socks & Pans is a catchy name that the owners adopted from the traditional fabric filter socks used mainly in the local coffeeshops to brew their coffee paired with fusion pizzas. Their coffee beans are roasted in Singapore and blended on site to ensure freshness and rich aroma and flavour in every cup.
If you want to try thin crust pizzas with truly Asian-inspired toppings, go for their Tom Yum fish, Asian-Pulled Pork or spicy Hebi-Hiam with soft tofu! I haven’t tried such pizzas before; the closest I ever tried was satay chicken pizza.
They also serve sandwiches, freshly made with soft white bread with a good variety of fillings to choose from. I tried their specialty Asian Pulled Pork sandwich($9.80) that's like the equivalent of 'Kong Bah Pao' in Chinese restaurants, marinated with a sweet flavoured sauce, painstakingly shredded to give an ultimate 'porky' experience. There's also a generous serving of salad for a healthy balance. The iced Lemon Honey ($2.30) complemented my sandwich well on a hot sunny afternoon.
To complete your meal, you might want to try their in-house Tiramisu, specially prepared by Bing, one of the partners. It’s quite yummy when you reach the bottom for that nice fusion mix of both Bacardi Rum and local coffee.
