Kyushu Pancake

This is apparently a very popular pancake joint in Taiwan and it being so near my office, I had to try it.

The pancakes here are made from 7 different types of grains and free of additives, artificial fragrance etc etc i.e. healthy. And yes they do taste healthy. But give me Mac’s hotcakes anyday, not going for healthy if I am eating pancakes.

image

The waffle with fried chicken was rather nice. This was a dish where I didnt mind the fried chicken to be on the “healthier” side.

image
That said, I found this place overpriced, for instance the chicken waffle dish was $19 while a big breakfast with pancakes and the usual eggs + sausage will set you back $22. I do like the cute pastel mugs.

Craftsmen Specialty Coffee

So great to have more decent cafes opening near my workplace. So now I can pretend its the weekend and have brunch food for lunch 😛

image

I like that they serve back bacon here, more meat less fat

image

Waffles here were great, this was the savory one with bacon and scrambled eggs topped with their signature sauce (tad spicy)

image

Smoked salmon + poached egg + brioche + avocado = cant go wrong what with everything i love on a plate

image

The salted gula melaka waffle is something that we keep ordering again and again, the perfect combination of salt and sweet, so good. But do share as it can be quite jelat to eat this on your own.

Curious Palette

Such a beautiful cafe, open and spacious complete with faux- industrial like decor. For some reason, there was a weird foul smell in the air that day when we popped by for brunch. Probably something in the aircon vent? The staff were busy spraying air freshener hah

image

A hot day calls for some ice coffee, aptly done.

image

E opted for probably the most unphotogenic item on the menu  (lol) – the baked eggs with toast

image

While I went for the most photogenic- the ricotta hotcake with berries,pumpkin seeds and ice cream. Look how pretty it is!! The hotcake was THICK and fluffy, too thick in fact that I could barely finish half but lets just admire how pretty it is

Marmalade Pantry

A quick lunch at Marmalade Pantry, I must admit I havent been here in ages, ever since my love for sticky date pudding disappeared.

image

We came here mainly for the discounts provided via the Entertainer App. At one-for-one I guess lunch here was affordable though nothing really special.

image

It was nice to eat something relatively healthy for a change, my salmon with vermicelli did that job.

GastroSmiths

One of those glorious weekdays where we are on leave and can afford a long leisurely lunch (yes that’s beer you see in the picture below). GastroSmiths has a pretty value for money – 3 course set lunch all for only $15!

image

I got the soup of the day – a nice green and flavourful broccoli soup

image

While E went for the more obvious choice, the truffled egg crostini, featuring sinful eggs + mustard aioli and a generous amt of olive oil

image

The beef don ($14 supplement) featuring a 63 degree egg and marbled beef was nicely done for its price. I love the addition of the seaweed; stirring the egg into the rice and slurping everything up made for one enjoyable meal. Of course the beef wasnt the greatest quality but I thought it was good for its price.

image

E got the smoked salmon don, essentially the same as the beef don, just swapping the protein.

For the 3rd course, one gets to choose either a dessert (vanilla bean ice cream) or beverage (coffee/tea). Go for the ice cream, its the good quality kind – u know where you can really see the vanilla beans, so good 🙂

Will definitely come back;would love to try the brunch menu or that cod mee sua I keep seeing around social media posts.

Sarnies

After a late night of mahjong and feeling slightly disoriented, I was so down for a nice big greasy brunch.  Sarnies – laid back cafe, aussie style was the perfect place.

image
E got the Sarnies’ fry up while I got the stuffed omelette.  Both portions were really generous.

image

My omelette was a tad overcooked and oily but flavours were still pretty good.

image

The fry up was the better of both in my opinion, featuring runny eggs, mushrooms, very crispy bacon and their own baked beans. The baked beans were done like a salsa and was nice and tangy. Def way better than those nasty orange baked beans in a can, I hate those!

Arbite

Determined to try new places with our entertainer app. I know Arbite as a cafe in Serangoon Gardens which serves pretty good brunch so here we are for dinner!

image
Started with salted egg fries, the ever popular complement to dishes nowadays. Very rich I must add, certainty for fans of salted egg dishes.

image

Not sure why (we are crazy) but we ordered another salted egg dish – soft shell crab with penne pasta and salted egg sauce. This fortunately was less ‘jelat’ than the fries though I felt the sauce was a tad too watery.

image

The slightly healthier salmon risotto with tea broth and some japanese pickles. Tasted as wholesome as it looks and a welcome change from the salted egg dishes lol

That said, I think I still prefer the brunch menu
