Finally here at Populus for brunch; The Populus Scramble ($19) Signature soft creamy scrambled eggs, fresh herb melange, marinated feta, back bacon and toasted crossaint. I love the eggs here! Spring Pancake & Fried Chicken ($23) Spring onion and corn pancake with succulent fried chicken thigh fillet with hint of cumin and house special ranch dressing. This is what Sundays should be like! 😀

Buckwheat Pancake Finally visited The Populus Coffee & Food Co after wish-listing it for the longest time ever and boy was I impressed with the food😍 I had the Buckwheat Pancake ($21), which comprised of a thick and fluffy buckwheat pancake served on a hot skillet with berry fruit compote, passionfruit curd, cornflake crumbs, butter, maple syrup and edible flowers. It was sooooo pretty (read: instaworthy) and more importantly, the taste was on point! The pancake had just the right amount of sweetness, was not greasy and the citrusy toppings went well with the fluffy pancake. Although it was a little pricey, it was quite value-for-money as the thick pancake was super filling - it was almost as if I ate a cake for lunch😂 To top it off, the service was great - they actually allowed my friends and I to dine on the 2nd storey (usually closed for weekday lunch) when the 1st storey was full, appreciated the flexibility👍🏻 This is definitely one place that I will love to return to:)!

Braised Duck Everything + Porridge ($38) Cheerful guys doling out all things duck at this Geylang coffeeshop. Pretty awesome braised duck — every piece was tender and bathed in that rockin’ sweet and hearty dark gravy. Innards like intestines and liver were also done well, sans the unpleasant offal taste. Love that it comes packed with eggs, beansprouts, peanuts, fish cakes and the oh so flavourful tofu. Extra points for that punchy sambal and lime chilli mixture!

Half A Duck + Many Add-Ons ($38) Can’t believe it’s taken us this long to try this amazing braised duck! We got half a duck and added on the works; liver, gizzards, eggs and a whole slew of other goodies. Everything was super yummeh drenched in the dark, aromatic gravy. The duck was tender and tasty, the liver was soft, fresh and had an amazing bite to it. There was even this curious flat “jellyfish” like item that had a springy bite that we enjoyed – turned out to be duck’s intestines! All this for $38, we’ll certainly be back. Friendly, affable service too though the midday Geylang sun is no joke, this was well worth a little discomfort.

Geylang’s Duck Rice Is Worthy Of Its Fame After the lunch at two-months-old “Banh Mi Thit” left us feeling rather underwhelmed, Burppler Dex Neo suggested we visit “Sia Kee Duck Rice”, a stall he has had on his Burpple wishlist, for lunch part two. So we walked less than half a kilometre down Geylang Road to the corner Sin Huat Eating House where the stall is located and in the spirit of true foodies everywhere, over-ordered. That’s how we ended up with a platter piled with half a duck (very tender of flesh), duck liver (superbly creamy), braised eggs, “tau kwa” (this was the best!) and fish cake topped with sweet, soft peanuts, cuttlefish and blanched bean sprouts. Over it all went the distinctive aromatic and tasty thick braising sauce. Tucking into this goopy-licious heap of protein lifted up our spirits. Coupled with the extremely cheery service from the Oh brothers - Ron, Laurence and Albert, who co-own and operate “Sia Kee Duck Rice”, we couldn’t help but be all smiles by the time we left.
