Hot Chocolate Is A Better Choice Picked chili crab omelette with flat white while my friend picked hot chocolate. A bit sad that banana toast is removed on the weekend menu. The omelette is better for 2 to share as it is a bit too much for me to consume the whole omelette. Maybe it would be a better choice if I pick other coffees - flat white is simply not strong enough. However the hot chocolate my friend took was pretty nice - both the appearance and the taste.

Flat Iron Steak Flat Iron Steak ($21) Flat Iron Steak from @vxxcooperative served with salsa verde, roasted eggplant and potatoes and salad. Portion was generous but the steak was a little too well done. Roasted potatoes seasoned with rosemary were addictive though. Nice cafe to chill out at and loving the decor and flooring.

Reverse Affogato After learning about VXX Cooperative from Burpple Blog, I was very curious to visit this place and see what they have to offer, but because I already had dinner before visiting, I thought I can just come by for coffee or desserts. The struggle is real. The Reverse Affogato (S$9.00) appeared to be the most seductive dessert on their menu because of the collaboration with Apiary SG and the use of Nylon Coffee's Seasonal Single Origin Espresso. Other than that, the honeycomb crumble topping just added some texture to the ice cream. And this is a reverse affogato because the ice cream is coffee-flavoured and the liquid is spiced milk. So for every spoonful of ice cream I scoop into my mouth, there is this mild but pleasant spice taste. Just chillax and immerse in the ambience.

Banana French Toast ($12 nett) A pretty dish destined for Instagram, but sadly fell short of expectations. Instead of a comforting eggy French toast, this tasted more like normal toast sandwiched with jam and a couple of bananas, and it was on the drier side. The saving grace was the mascarpone and freeze-dried raspberries; we ended up eating only the top layer with the accompanying coffee custard. This dish definitely has potential for improvement.

Steamed Egg In Claypot (Gyeran Jim) 瓿勲瀫彀 (Gyeran Jim) - Steamed egg in a hot claypot. This Korean-style steamed egg came bubbling towards us. When we scooped into its fluffiness, it was a smooth eggy flavour full with the sweetness from chicken broth. Never knew a simple steamed egg can be elevated this way by so much. 馃挮 Team lunch at this Korean outfit. The place is crowded at lunchtime, so be sure to reserve. Pretty decent, authentic Korean.

Quite Worth It For Its Price I am rather a big eater, so at first I thought ordering 3 items wouldn't be enough. I ordered the pancake, chicken bulgogi and bibimbap. The price of the chicken bulgogi was $22.80, but there is a 17% discount promotion during dinner for certain chicken dishes and bulgogi was one of them. I almost couldn't finish my food as the amount was quite alot. I find the food quite tasty despite reading some not so good reviews online. For its price I would say it is quite Worth it. I would probably come back again to try other items on the menu or the bbq. 1 thing I think they could improve is to increase the number of side dishes.

Filling meal Between the two of us, we ordered kimchi soup, chicken bulgogi and Pajoen. The Pajoen ($14.80) that we ordered is really delicious! It was chewy and crispy and the accompanying sauce was tangy. It is slightly oily though but that didn't stop me from eating piece after piece. I would not recommend the chicken bulgogi unless ib groups of 3 or 4 as the dish had very strong flavours (mainly sweet tasting) and it felt very overpowering after a few bites. But overall, it was great and we both felt very full after the meal.

Hamburg + Free Flow Salad And Eggs For ~$24 after all the extra charge, you get to enjoy a bento + access to a huge salad/fruit range and free flow eggs (scrambled, sunny side up, tamago, omelette, hard boil, soft boil). You're guaranteed to fill your tummy! One thing, we though the beef was over minced and lacked the chunk. That being said, the taste is there;) really loved their cutleries and atmosphere馃憤馃徏

Go For The Ponzu I chose the ponzu sauce this time. Sour and savory, it was useful in cutting thru the richness of the meat. After stuffing my face at the salad bar, this sour ponzu was just what I needed to refresh my palate. I read belatedly that I could order ebi fry in place of the meat. Aiya..! Good reason to visit again. 鉁岎煆

Alternate To Hamburg Steak! I've never been a big fan of hamburg steak, much preferring a regular hamburger given half a choice, but the salad bar at this place is so amazing that I found myself back in line and when we finally got to the table, I asked the waitress hopefully whether there were any other options on the menu aside from hamburg steak... Imagine my surprise when she said, why yes, you can also order ebi fry! And these tempura prawns are awesome! Succulent and crispy with homemade tartar sauce! And free flow buffet as always, complete with unlimited eggs cooked how you want them! Bliss!

Angus Burger ($21.95++) When very reliable sources like Burpple, and Burpplers Jayne, Muriel and Shao, tell you one of the best burgers in Singapore can be found at Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro, you sit up and listen, then zip over there pronto. I have been a little slow in doing so (excuse me while I kick myself a little more) but it finally happened - I got my paws on a burger of theirs this evening. The Angus Burger, to be precise. And it was epic. XL in every aspect, from the toasted and buttered, soft brioche buns to the exceedingly juicy beef patty, it was full-on in taste through and through. I found it a little tricky fitting the entire height of the burger into my mouth for each bite because the patty alone must've been an inch thick, and it came stacked with tomatoes, a portobello mushroom, gherkins and caramelised onions. But the struggle was well worth it. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am against tomatoes in burgers and this had two slices. Strangely enough though, they didn't behave the way most tomatoes have under such circumstances. So I dare say I did like them here. It could be because they sat on a bed of melted cheese, which prevented them from soaking into the bottom bun. Yes, wet bread is my ultimate pet peeve. So burger fans, make sure you zero in on this if you haven't had it before. And by the way, excellent crispy fries and a salad are served alongside.

Kiwashi Meshi Decadent and luxurious seafood on top of plump sticky short grain rice. At $42.80++, it's worth every penny to savour the melt in your mouth umami of ootoro and the sweet briny taste of the sea in the uni. If I had to nit pick, I just wish that portions could be bigger and the slices of sashimi to be consistent because while the ootoro was a decent thickness, the other slices of sashimi were quite thin and didn't feel as satisfying. #burpplesushimonth

Sansyoku Meshi 涓夎壊銈併仐 ($32.8++) This is seriously one of the freshest cut you can get for anyone who wants to try maguro but not in Japan. If you just want to sample the 3 different cuts of tuna, this Don is one to go for. The Sansyoku Meshi comes with toro (銇ㄣ倣), chutoro (涓仺銈) and otoro (澶с仺銈). The otoro is buttery smooth and melts with little effort. The chutoro is somewhat like an umami bomb, which burst forth as you chew on it. I personally loved the chutoro out of the 3 different cuts for the experience and the flavor that it produces from within the tuna. It may seem a bit expensive but for the quality of meat, it is downright worth it.

Beef Sundubu ($17) 馃槝 Went for a healthy tofu hotpot lunch on a cooling Friday. This Korean stew with a Japanese twist not just enhances your health but also your beauty. The silky soft tofu is high in protein, low in calorie, rich in soy isoflavones stewed in collagen rich soup. The delicious basic soup seasoned with Tategi comes with shrimps, asari clams, tofu, semi raw egg and meat or seafood of your choice. There're 3 options of soup base: Salt & Ginger (my choice), Japanese Miso or Non Spicy. Level of spiciness can go up to 6 but I'm perfectly happy at level 3. Those who know me will know that I'm totally not a fan of tofu. This tofu however wowed me as it was indeed superbly soft without the 'bean' taste. And I super love the rich & thick soup base. Once in a while having this tofu is definitely fine with me for the sake of the capsaicin and collagen 馃構 #burpple

Pork Belly Confit So this dish was prepared by special needs people. The pork belly was extremely good cause the meat was tender and the skin was super crispy! The mash potato was very velvety and soft and it melts in the tongue. The price is very standard for a cafe but i support this cafe cause it really gives these special needs people a chance to work in the society. So thumbs up cause it's worth the try!!!

For Western Fare and Cheery Service in the Northeast Set up by the parents of Joan Bo Wen, a young lady with special needs, this social enterprise in Jalan Wangi (Potong Pasir is the nearest MRT station) trains and imparts kitchen skills to youths with special needs, and the cafe is run almost entirely by its team of young staff with special needs. The menu is pretty basic but the food is beautifully plated, generously portioned and delicious 鈥 it can certainly rival any cafe at the same price point! 鈥 and the service is cheerful and heartfelt. Out of our several favourites here, we highly recommend the Chilli Crab Pasta ($18), with a sauce that strikes the perfect balance between sweet, spicy and umami, and the delectable Rosemary Lemon Chicken ($12). For something less heavy, try the Oriental Chicken Salad ($12). Avg price: $20 per person Photo by Burppler Cedric Lim

Pasta Capretto ($18) While the super meaty Chilli Crab Pasta ($18) was my favourite here, this rarer find is worth a try too. We were told that an Italian chef shared the recipe and taught the kitchen staff how to whip this interesting dish up, so you know it's legit. 馃挭馃徏 Capretto translates to the meat of a kid (as in, young goat 馃悙) in Italian, but the waitstaff said that they use lamb here (though their menu online says herb-roasted goat meat so... the jury's still out on that). In any case, the chunks of meat were very tender 鈥 although a tad gamey, esp if it was really lamb. I particularly liked the rich cheesy sauce (enriched with Parmigiano-Reggiano, methinks) that coated the streamers of tagliatelle was an umami party in the mouth. It can get a little too much after a while, so it's best to share this with someone and get another pasta/main to share. 馃崫

Chilli crab pasta I've had many a chilli crab pasta and I felt that this was definitely on my must try list. The sauce is as authentically Singaporean as it goes. Sweet, spicy, full of umami and eggy goodness with loads of fresh crab meat and a shell or 2. My only gripe is that they do not serve buns for dipping. Perhaps I'll snuggle my own buns in next time. 馃槀馃槀 #hungryhungrymonster
