Inside Scoop
An oldie but goodie 🤤 Being around for some 4-5 years now says heaps, considering the volatility and high turnover rates of local cafes; and that @therefinerysg’s signature Refinery Gyudon’s been on the menu since day 1 shows just how reliably good this is. Each grain bowl comes topped with truffle shimeji mushrooms, tare marinated beef, pickled daikon, garlic chips, and an onsen egg. Very simple ingredients, with flavours and textures that balances out, it’s essentially a more modern take on the classic time-proven gyudon. If anything I found the rare sauce a wee sweeter than I’d prefer, but really there isn’t much to pick on with this grain bowl.

[The Refinery] - The seasonal special of the month is Cold Dip Tom Yum Udon ($16). It features cold Japanese Inaniwa udon with crab meat, ebi and enoki tempura, served with Tom Yum consommé. Reminiscent of Korean's cold noodles Naengmyeon, the chilled Tom Yum Consommé was piquant and pretty intense in flavours despite its seemingly light consistency, but not too assertive, which paired well with the thin Inaniwa udon.

[The Refinery] - Iced Coffee Ball. Available in 2 flavours - Macadamia or Praline, it can be a little sweet, but I thought it serves well as a post-meal drink.

Great Food & Vibes! We ordered the banana butterscotch pancake (think it was 18.5) and truffle fries (9.5). The pancake was rly impressive; it kinda reminds me of the ricotta hotcakes some cafes have, but atlas’ rendition rly puts the cake in pancake! It manages to be rly fluffy and not dense! The pancake itself wasn’t too sweet and didn’t get jelak even towards the end 😍😍 the truffle fries were great: strong consistent truffle taste (the actual portion is bigger than what’s reflected in the image as we were rly hungry and ate some), the price is decent but I’m a little sad that they raised their price (it used to be 8 😥😥). Nonetheless, love this cafe (esp the new decor and setup after their renovations) and will be back! 😍

Bacon Kedgeree Bacon Curried Rice, Raisins, Tomato Basil Paste, Organic Jammy Egg, Caramelised Onion, Sour Cream. One of the new items available at Atlas Coffeehouse which had since reopened after an extensive renovation which carries a different look from before. Essentially almost akin to Pineapple Fried Rice spiked with chunks of bacon all over, the rice comes slightly sweet yet with a hint of curry spice, made savoury from the bits of bacon that speckled throughout the entire bowl. The Organic Jammy Egg is done to a texture where the egg yolk is a little hardened but still creamy, though not oozy and flowy like a typical sous-vide egg; I would have probably preferred having it sous-vide or molten to allow the yolk to better mix into the rice for better flavour. That being said, the caramelised onions were extremely on-point with its sweetness — a very distinct note that works extremely well with the rice while the sour cream, though a little unnecessary for me, does help in providing a slightly neutral flavour yet adding some creaminess into the dish. Everything is still done as per standards familiar to Atlas Coffeehouse, Colombus Coffee Co., and Lunar Coffee Brewers; pretty excited to give the other new items a go another time.

Summer Chicken Stew ($18), Atlas Super Bowl ($17) Finally back at Atlas and glad that there wasn’t a long queue ahead of us. I had the summer chicken stew which was a huge chicken thigh that was slow cooked in a sundried tomato, herbed cream sauce. But this was closer to a Chinese type of soup that was thin, smooth and easy on the palate than a usual western type of soup that is thick. It also came with huge chunks of potatoes and carrots to make a filling meal on its own. The sourdough that came with it was also able to soak up the essence of the soup well. However, we found that the dishes here seem to be a tad too salty for our liking, maybe the speed at which dishes have to be churned out played a part in that.
