Seok Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe - Themed cafe by the airpot runway in Singapore - Bumble Bee Mum

As I took flight on my journey to hunt down themed cafes in Singapore… It landed me in a place where I least expected to find a themed cafe: Seletar Airport.

If you are not from Singapore, you probably wouldn’t know that Singapore has a smaller airport, Seletar Airport, on top of the world-famous Changi Airport.   But unless you are part of the Singapore Youth Flying Club or something, chances are you would never need to use the airport.  At least I have never found a reason to go to Seletar Airport although it was super near my home.  Till now.

But WAIT!! Before you start driving down to Seletar Airport, the cafe I am going to show you was NOT located at the airport itself.  It was located at MAJ Aviation, along Seletar Aerospace View.

Seok Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe, as the name suggested, was a bicycle themed cafe located beside the runway of Seletar Airport.

Throughout the cafe, you would find bicycle and bicycle accessories donning the walls.

Check out the corridors, the doors, the counters… Everywhere you look, there was no lack of bicycle themed decorations!

What was most interesting about this themed cafe was that it didn’t just stop at being a bicycle themed cafe.  It was an evolving (okay, TOO MUCH Pokemon) bicycle themed cafe.

What do I mean by evolving themed cafe? You see.. The owner of the cafe was an artist.  So while he wanted a bicycle themed cafe, he used his artistic talents to paint the tables according to what was trending.   So when everyone was crazy over Super Heroes, he painted Super Heroes riding bicycles on the table.

When Avengers were a fad, he painted Avengers riding bicycles.

And now that Pokemon Go is a fad, he painted Pokemon riding bicycles.

You really got to give it to him for his creativity.  I mean.. Look at the wheels of the Avengers’ bicycles.  Captain America’s wheels were his shield, Thor’s wheels were his hammer, Spiderman’s wheels were webbed and so on.  Super cool right?

At Seok Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe, you could choose to dine outdoors facing the runway and watch the planes taxi and fly by.

We got lucky and even saw a fire engine driving by!

And the action didn’t just take place on the runway.  On the other end of the cafe, there was an aircraft movement area where we saw planes being transported to and fro the airport.

I think we were super lucky when we were there on a Saturday afternoon and there were planes taking off and landing continuously during our lunch.  I heard that sometimes, you can sit there for a long time and not see a single plane.

But if it gets too hot to sit outside (it was a good day for us as it was very windy when we were there, so despite the scorching hot sun, it was actually quite cooling), you can also opt to sit indoors.

Food-wise, I particularly liked their Sirloin Steak which was tender and easy to chew.

Sirloin Steak ($15 nett)

 

The chicken wings were also crispy and fragrant.

Chicken Wings ($8 nett)

 

I do not recommend their hot stone rice though.  The unatamadon (unagi and egg don) was still acceptable, but the gyu don was simply too dry.

Unatamadon ($8.80 nett)

Gyu Don ($7.80 nett)

 

Drinks were pretty standard stuff, with soft drinks at $2 per can and coffee and tea ranging form $4 to $6.50.   They also serve beer and ciders – I imagine this to be a pretty cool place to hang out with friends over a few drinks in the evening!

Ice Latte ($6.50 nett)

 

While the food did not blow me away, the atmosphere here definitely did.  There was space for children to bring their scooters to scoot around (you can read more about this on So.Natty.Sg) while parents relaxed by the side.

However, do note that you cannot let the children play with anything that could potentially end up with something flying across the fence and onto the airport runway. i.e. strictly no ball games, frisbee, throwing paper aeroplanes, kite flying etc etc.  You get the idea.

So if you or your kids are airheads (bwahaha… Not scolding you.. You know what I mean…), head down to Seok Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe for your next meal!
