For Modern Comfort Food in Chinatown

For Modern Comfort Food in Chinatown

Taking over the grounds of long defunct Oriole Coffee Roasters on Jiak Chuan Road, .elia has joined the Keong Saik neighbourhood to dish out comforting bistro plates in a chic yet very welcoming and soothing setting. On the menu currently are freshly made pastas and hearty sandwiches. Come by for lunch and tuck into their Pulled Pork Sandwich ($17.50), which sees flavourful and moist pork slicked in Russian dressing, sandwiched with purple slaw between sourdough toast, or go for one of the pastas — the Scampi ($18.50) with grilled prawns, pink peppercorns and tomatoes sounds fresh and lovely. Add on $1 for the sandwich set, which includes a hot coffee or tea, or $2 for the pasta set, which includes a mini bowl of salad and hot coffee or tea. The Burpple community is also raving about their simply named Potatoes ($16), a brunch only dish of grilled potatoes on mashed potatoes, peppered with bacon and caramelised onions, and a fried egg on top. The brunch menu is available on Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays.
Avg Price: $20 per person
