Had the chance to dine alone whilst working from the office; wanted to drop by other places but found myself hitting Curious Palette instead — one of the spots that is rarely exercised even when eating alone around the office.

Wanted to go for something more substantial, but found myself eventually going for the Kaya, Coffee Butter — the very same item which I had went for when I first made my return to the cafe when dine-in was just re-instated after moving into Phase Two of the Circuit Breaker. The aesthetics of the dish had since changed — gone were the days of the square sliced toast stacked up with the soy sauce bottle one would often find in coffeeshops that contains their Espresso Shoyu; now the items come with toasts sliced in triangles, and the Espresso Shoyu comes in a saucer instead.

The Kaya, Coffee Butter Toast was what I remembered it to be — the crisp, old-school toast that it came with resembles that of Ya Kun’s Kaya Butter Toast; just sliced slightly different and comes slathered with ample portions of Kaya and Coffee Butter for a balance note. Perhaps of the way the toasts are being sliced now, the flavours of the Kaya and Coffee Butter are also a bit more pronounced this time — the Kaya being all smooth and carried a distinct note of the caramalised coconut jam; all that without being overly sweet nor grainy as the commercial variants available in supermarkets, while the coffee butter carries an alluring bitter undertone that cuts through the usual saltishness of butter which is an interesting flavour profile that brings the usual pairing of coffee with Kaya Butter Toast straight into the toast itself. The sous vide eggs that accompanies the Kaya, Coffee Butter Toast comes wobbly with molten egg yolks — the best sort of eggs with Kaya Butter Toast that we so much enjoy in the traditional Hainanese breakfast, and comes accompanied with Espresso-infused Shoyu; do go easy with the dousing of the Shoyu considering how the Espresso Shoyu comes with a rather deep, earthy and saltish note that is more intense than the usual light soya sauce that some will enjoy their eggs to go together with.

The Kaya, Coffee Butter is probably one of those items that is rarely seen being ordered at Curious Palette — after all, the other items on the menu would probably appeal to the cafe-goers a lot more and are also more substantial in terms of portion size. I do enjoy their twist to the usual Kaya Butter Toast though — one that can only be pulled of by an establishment that specialises in specialty coffee; and is something I would consider having again for a light lunch/brunch at Curious Palette.

Saw this being ordered at most tables so decided to give it a shot

On first look, the surface looked abit burnt to me but luckily there wasn’t any burnt taste. The sides of the hotcake were crispy while the middle remained moist.
Tastewise, the maple syrup and the jam gave the sweet and sour contrast with the occasional bites of the nuts. Oh and the ice cream was way too little and melted very quickly on top the warm hotcake.

Not too bad but it’s def a sharing portion.

Second time eating this truffle capellini and I still enjoyed it.

Strong truffle taste

This was pretty good.
Pork was on the salty side but complemented well with the veggies
Sourdough was not those hard kind. Poached egg was beautiful w the gooey centre.

I have been wanting to try the Truffle Capellini ($19) from Curious Palette. The al dente capellini is drenched in a truffle-infused mushroom fricassee and topped with grated parmesan, chives and an onsen egg. The sauce is rich, creamy and thankfully not too jelak, but it is a little salty. Each strand of pasta is thoroughly coated in the flavourful sauce and runny egg, and the generous serving of mushrooms adds a nice bite to the dish. Overall, pretty tasty and value-for-money in view of the large portion! P.S. There is a one-for-one deal on Entertainer:)

This is my first visit to Curious Palette and I’m loving the rustic-industrial vibes of this cafe. But what really won me over is the Prawn Mentaiko Belacan Pasta ($21.90) that comes with 3 charcoal grilled tiger prawns in tamarind glaze, sakura ebi and dollops of mentaiko. The sauce is rich, flavourful and packed with umami, and the al dente pasta soaks up all that goodness effortlessly. Such decadence!
