Heard from a friend that the favourite place had been serving up some new mains and a new donut at their East Coast Road branch — and needless to say, a trip down to try the dishes is pretty much mandatory, since I am quite into trying anything new that comes out from them.

Between the two new items (the other one being the Aglio Olio, Miso Garlic Prawns in White Wine Sauce), I found the Pan-Seared Salmon, Creamy Jap Udon with Sushikko Ebiko to be my favourite — perhaps because this was pretty much their take to the classic Carbonara with a twist. One could also easily argue that this item is likely to be a spin-off from the usual grain bowl (with Japanese Udon), considering some of the elements used such as the sous-vide egg, Kale, Salmon and Sushikko Ebiko — even the aesthetics of the dish seems to tell so. We really liked how the cream wasn’t particularly cloying with this one, even though they were pretty generous with it so that the Udon beneath gets laced with it. The Japanese Udon was also pretty chewy and provides for much of the textures going on in here, while the pan-fried salmon comes flaky and sufficiently moist with a crisp, savoury skin — essentially what I would have expected it to be. The crisp, shredded kale gives the dish a further textural impact with the Sushikko Ebiko whilst giving the dish a more wholesome feel; the former with its light crispness while the latter provides for that popping sensation as one chews upon them. Hidden amidst all of that within the cream sauce are slices of bacon — the part where the dish replicates the good ol’ Carbonara the most together with the sous-vide egg; the bacon providing that slight saltishness of cured meat that gives a further contrast of flavours to the cream sauce, while the sous-vide egg yolk giving the dish a silkier texture as one breaks the yolk and mixes it into the dish.

It seems that the folks behind Brawn & Brains have been revamping some of their menu items a little — while new dishes such as this and the Aglio Olio, Miso Garlic Prawns in White Wine Sauce have found a place in their menu, there are also other new items such as the Sea Salt Caramel Donut, and Dark Chocolate Babka with Ice-Cream and Caramel Sauce being spotted on the menu at their East Coast branch. The BB Sourdough Waffles has also seen a slight twist with the infusion of thyme as the BB Sourdough Thyme Waffles — perhaps a tweak made with the current trends of flavoured waffles served with ice-cream and herb-infused waffle cones. Always liked how they are always constantly coming up with new items gradually with a tedious R&D process here, keeping things fresh for patrons even though they have been around for 8 years and counting. Meanwhile, my eyes are probably set on the Dark Chocolate Babka with Ice-Cream and Caramel Sauce the next time I head to this outlet …

pork and beef meatballs, slow cooked egg, crispy kale, spicy and tangy tomato pasta sauce

Don't enjoy at all... dry meatballs and over-cooked soft pasta, more than half the portion left uneaten.

Having tried the B&B Classic Waffle some time back, Brawn & Brains had went even further with their waffles and developed a new sourdough variant which had replaced the former on the menu — something which I had been looking forward to try for a while but hadn’t had the stomach space to have it until fairly recently.

Given the various renditions of sourdough waffles I have tried from different establishments all around, I may not have had enough to make a fair comparison — but I would say the variant at Brawn & Brains is my favourite thus far. Unlike the sourdough waffles that I have tried previously which at times may turn out to be slightly soft and limp, the B&B Sourdough Waffle is surprisingly light, crisp and airy — even to the extent of being a lighter version of waffle as compared to their B&B Classic Waffle of the past; pretty easy to finish and comes even with a familiar tinge of tartness from the fermentation process of the sourdough batter similar to that of sourdough bread, which I found to be really impressive. Topped with a generous scoop of Vanilla ice-cream, the ice-cream is rich, creamy, smooth and sticky — a sheer joy to have at any given occasion, whilst also drizzled with salted caramel and sprinkled with pistachios for a crunch. Speak about the perfect tea-time dessert treat whilst enjoying a hot cup of Flat White here.

Some may argue about how Brawn & Brains is a favourite of mine — but it’s hard not to love them knowing how they put their heart and soul into the development of each dish just to give their patrons their very best; and the results show. Truly impressed with how the B&B Sourdough Waffles with Vanilla Ice-Cream was; absolutely excited with what might come out of their hands next!

For a hearty brunch, you’ll not go wrong with this juicy sausage and twin perfectly poached eggs. The star however is the slab of crispy potato hash with fresh thyme, fried to golden brown crunchiness on the outside, yet meltingly soft within.

Taste: 3.5/5
