Double espresso with chilled milk - that's what dirty is! & I guess the name stems from the muddy look it comes with.

This caffeinated drink does stand out with a name, but taste wise, probably just a stronger coffee option. It's served as it is, without ice, which then warms up quite quickly as it sits at room temp, making it a lil difficult to drink.

Nonetheless, it's definitely enjoyable with its double shot!

Located just a stone throw away from Potong Pasir MRT, Fuel X (sibling to Fuel Plus+) serves up an extensive menu of brunch staples, coffee & bites!

One of the sides that's a perfect sharing dish is their Mentaiko Bro-Cauli Nuggets! The perfect pun to showcase their use of broccoli & cauliflower as bite-sized nuggets which comes lightly battered & drenched with Mentaiko. If you didn't know, you wouldn't have thought that you're either veggies - which is perfect for kids, or non-veggie eaters like me! 😜

Visited the new Fuel X over the long weekend β€” a new cafe that had recently opened its doors at The Venue Shoppes situated at the busy junction where MacPherson, Potong Pasir and Bendemeer intersect. If the name does some familiar, that is because Fuel X is by the same folks who have brought us concepts such as Refuel Cafe (at Bedok Reservoir), Fuel Plus (at Morse Road; in between HarbourFront and Telok Blangah) and Refuel II (at Jalan Bukit Merah).

The menu at Fuel X is rather extensive β€” with items ranging from the eggy dishes that one would expect from a cafe for brunch, to salads, burgers, pasta and entrees, there is definitely something for everyone. Off their β€œEggs & Such” menu, the Cauli-Eggs Ben is one of the items that caught our eyes β€” a dish that is a spin-off from the usual Eggs Benedict that sees elements such as guacamole, fried spicy cauliflower, poached eggs, Hollandaise sauce and Feta Cheese served on naan bread, giving it an interest Asian twist. First impressions of the naan bread was that the bread felt a little dry, though we could see why the guacamole is being added β€” gives the naan a slight butteriness which improved its texture by quite a fair bit, whilst also being a vehicle to bind all the other elements together; the nuggets of fried cauliflower were crisp and not particularly greasy, whilst giving a soft crunch as one chews through the cauliflower within. That being said, despite its description of being spicy, we did not really detect much of a hint of spiciness with this one β€” could have been a easily brought out with a sprinkle of paprika and/or pepper. The poached eggs were a little disappointing in this one; cutting through the eggs only revealed soft yolks that do not seemingly flow (they did got it right for the other item we ordered though), and the Hollandaise sauce did felt a little too stark in its sourness and lacked creaminess. The arugula included helped to balance out the heavier fried items and the naan, but I did enjoy how the feta cheese cuts through the typical bitterness of the arugula for a more palatable note.

Despite the slight inconsistencies in this dish, Fuel X does serve up pretty decent cafe fare that were once-upon-a-time all the rage when cafes started to sprout up in neighbourhoods; dishes that cafe-hoppers are bound to enjoy and something which they are seemingly good in after all these while at their other locations. Given its relatively accessible and centralised location, Fuel X is a rather convenient spot to visit, though does require some walking from Potong Pasir MRT Station if one relies on the train to get around; do be prepared to wait a little for seats though β€” visited them on a weekend lunch service and we were placed on the waiting list with two other tables ahead of us when we arrived before 12 noon; just something to note if one intends to make the visit!

Midweek matcha treat! Check out FuelX, the newest cafe by Refuel group at Potong Pasir area. Their Matcha Pancake, which is fancier than your regular pancakes, is also available at this outlet.

Stack of matcha-infused pancakes served with banana, berries, matcha ice cream, a dusting of pistachio and drizzled in matcha sauce. Pancake is light but wishes there was a strong taste of matcha.
