stuffed donuts Well known for its croissants, Brotherbird also serves a dessert menu at Stateland Cafe! We tried the mochi doughnuts with soft serve ($14). The doughnuts were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, with piping hot earl grey syrup spilling out from inside. The slightly-sweet tea flavour added dimension to the savoury doughnuts! The speculoos soft serve was a little icy and a tad too sweet, tasting more like regular vanilla than caramelised cookies. I’d deem this a one and done - I’ll be sticking to their croissants the next time!

Ferrero and Banana Creampie Crossaints Oh, for the love of crossaints. Pre-ordered a box of these delicious bakes, and boy was I torn amongst the innovative yet exquisite flavors on display. The pastries at Brotherbird are fun, visually attractive and generous in size. They also deliver in the taste department, made flaky and crusty, but slightly less buttery than a traditional crossaint- allowing the custard fillings to claim centre stage. Of my box of 6, the banana cream pie cruffin shone as it was generously pipped to the brim with a lucious creamy banana cream ganache, which I must applaud for its balance of fruity and milky notes. The flaky pasty was the perfect medium for the subtle-tasting cream, every bite was satisfying without being overwhelmingly rich. Another of notable mention is the Ferrero Crossaint- a timeless combination of chocolate coated crossaint filled with a viscous hazelnut rocher ganache. Biting through the crispy rocher ganache dusted with gold-colored flakes, layered sweet pastry and finally the flowy-middle- these were reminisent of good-old Krispy Kreme's nutella-filled donut, turned up a notch.

Standard single scoop [~$3.90] Standard single scoop [~$3.90] A little disappointed with the standard of the ice cream considering how the milky taste overwhelm the taste of the espresso. Pistachio is considered a premium scoop so it’s priced at $4.50 a scoop. Charcoal waffle [~$6] is something that hasn’t change and still has that awesome salted caramel sauce and lavender. Do note that they charge 10% service charge over here.

Ice Cream With Waffle Premium scoop $4.50 Brown butter waffle $5.00 with salted caramel sauce and dried lavender leaves on the side Ice cream wasn’t too sweet and was creamy! Freshly made from scratch. they do have interesting flavours but not as unique as Tom’s palette perhaps! Waffles are nice and crispy though we had better ones from Creamology in Jurong! And they do charge an additional 10% service charge! A little expensive for a neighbourhood ice cream joint!

Charcoal Waffles with Ice Cream Was adventurous enough to try the butter beer ice cream (signature flavour) but not that gutsy enough to add on a serving of salted egg yolk dip (comes at additional cost btw). Looking back, I should’ve just gone for it since I’ve travelled al the way from west to east just to try out their ice cream waffles! Butter beer ice cream was extremely creamy. Tho alcoholic, it doesn’t leave you with a nasty beer breath. Waffles lived up to expectations- crisp on the exterior while fluffy on the inside. As with all charcoal waffles, there’s no significant taste to the “charcoal”

Oh man, did the weekend just fly PASTA like that?! 🤣 Known for their locally sourced & freshly harvested ingredients, I was keen to try the Sweet Potato 🍠 Tortellini at @openfarmcommunity but unfortunately it was not available. 😭😭😭 The crew went along the line of pastas & proposed a swap to Bolognese, which was in the kids menu but they could upsize it to adult portion. 👌🏻 . Priced at $26++, the portion was decent & I must say that they were pretty generous with the ingredients - lots of bolognese sauce doused over the heap of pasta. 🍝🍝🍝 While I’ve always liked my pasta to be tomato-based, this was pretty one-dimensional & it got very heavy after a while. 😥 It was a moment of enlightenment of why this was in the kids menu - & why it should remain that way. . The pasta was easily half the width of a normal flat pasta, almost akin to yellow mee used in lor mee - a size that is good for kids' bite. 👏🏻 Albeit having a nice firm bite, I felt that the pasta rendered too thick a mouthfeel as compared to normal broad pasta which are thinner & flatter. 😐 . The plate was topped with some grated parmesan cheese 🧀, which added a light savoury element & some cheesy pull amidst the sweet meat sauce. 😋😋😋😋 This however also added to the heaviness of the carbs & meat which was a pretty dry combination to begin with, making the plate really cloying halfway through. 😥 . Would have appreciated an addition of some arugula/zucchini 🥒 or crunchy greens 🥬 to make it more refreshing but then again, I was once again reminded that kids do not like vegetables. 🤣 Perhaps this slight tweak for adults’ version would be good! 👍🏻 . Personally felt that there were limited choices on their lunch menu - perhaps they could act on expanding it. For now, I guess I have learnt my lesson - sticking to the adults menu should be the way to go! 👌🏻

BEEFing up against those viruses 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 with this Braised BEEF Open Facer! My picture doesn’t do it justice because you cannot tell that the homemade focaccia is close to a footlong! 🤤🤤🤤 Perhaps this helps to justify the price tag of this plate at $32++, which I thought was pretty reasonable for the portion. 👌🏻 . The focaccia was really well-done, standing firm to withstand the weight of that generous slab of pulled beef. ❤❤❤ Crusty on the outside & fluffy on the inside, this buttery homemade bread was indeed a delightful one! 🍞 . The star has got to be the slow-cooked pulled beef 🐄 that they lay elegantly atop the focaccia. Albeit being pretty robust in flavours 😋😋😋, @openfarmcommunity would have aced this dish if the meats were a tad more succulent. . It is then topped with pickled cabbage & mustard dressing which elevates the heaviness from the meats, making it a more refreshing dish. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 The side of fresh crunchy greens 🥗 helps to cleanse the palate before digging into this meaty plate again. 💕

🎶I’m WAFFLing on sunshine (wow!)~ And don’t it feel good~🎶 Almost the only time I hear of the word “Bakkwa” (Chinese pork jerky) frequently is during Chinese New Year 🧧, so it was really amusing to see it in a brunch menu! If you are equally curious about what that entails, you can try The Waffle Bakkwa & Egg Stack ($26++) at @openfarmcommunity! 😍😍😍 . Featuring 2 waffle toasts sandwiching a slab of homemade bakkwa 🐖, a generous portion of scrambled egg 🍳, finished with some tomato jam, this proved to be a rather interesting combination. 😉 . Unlike the usual bakkwa sold at Bee Cheng Hiang/Lim Chee Guan, this is not overly sweetened with a honey glaze, nor is it laden with colouring. 👏🏻 Essentially, it is a slice of barbequed pork belly that resembles the iconic tough texture of a pork jerky, like bacon. 🥓 Loved the smoky flavours & the char on the meat, but as I am personally not a fan of fatty meat, this was a tad too fatty for me. 🤣 . Those creamy scrambled eggs 🍳 were the winner - just look at how moist they are! 🤤🤤🤤 Just lightly seasoned, they certainly pair well with the robust-tasting bakkwa. 💕 The waffle toasts were fluffy & chewy, just wished they were more crisp on the exterior. The tomato jam 🍅 rendered a nice sweet & tangy zest, complimenting the savoury bakkwa & making the overall combination a more refreshing one. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 . Overall not too bad, something special i guess! 👌🏻 Do you like your waffles sweet or savoury, or both? 🤔

The soup tastes very pepperish, it also felt like there was a significant amount of MSG added to it. (S$15.50++ - ala carte) I like the kimchi mandu (dumplings). Filled with kimchi and minced pork, very appetizing. Eat it while it’s still steaming hot. (S$5.50++ - ala carte)
