Didn’t really cross my mind that I wanted to check out Habitat Coffee which had recently made their move out of Upper Thomson Road and into their new digs at King George’s Avenue near Lavender MRT Station — it all happened after taking a short walk down from a coffeeshop that I was intending to dine at, but ended up skipping on since it was too difficult to find a seat and I just wanted to settle somewhere for a light dinner.

The Chili Crab Mantou is served as a side here, which speaks of its portion size as depicted — I only found out subsequently after walking around the neighbourhood that Chye Seng Huat Hardware does serve up a rendition of the same dish as a main, though at a price of $22 before taxes (this one from Habitat Coffee is priced at $12 before taxes). Nonetheless, this works perfectly well for those who enjoys having the fried mantous with chili crab sauce, but are too lazy to deal with the crab (i.e. me 🙋🏼) — a perfect item to have at the table to share or even have alone whilst having a leisurely read with a cuppa. Coming with five pieces of fried mantou, the top piece does come with a dollop of truffle-infused mayo — an addition that is likely included only for mere aesthetic purposes rather than for its flavour. The fried mantous were pretty “meh” in my opinion; it has that sweet crunch and isn’t particularly greasy, though it lacks that structural integrity of fried mantous typically served at seafood restaurants that are served with chili crab — you know how some just simply stays firm and in shape even after taking on a bite. That being said, the focus here seems to be much on the chili crab dip — it’s sufficiently sweet and tangy; not too tomato-ey and feels like the de-facto chili crab sauce that we have come to love; quite on par with those served at seafood restaurants. What amazes me here is the generous amount of crab meat they had provided for just five pieces of deep-fried mantous; there is definitely enough to go around, not to mention scooping the sauce and meat out of the bowl using a spoon just to enjoy it as-is — pretty impressive for such a dish that is served in a cafe setting.

Noticed that Habitat Coffee does seem to be a little more playful and innovative in their menu here than they were previously at Upper Thomson Road — another one of the dishes that we found intriguing being listed on the menu includes the Pasta Lemak; essentially a pasta dish influenced by Nasi Lemak where they had replaced the rice with a “coconut skinny spaghetti “, which is served with chicken wings, fried anchovies, peanuts, egg and sambal. Given the direction they have taken with the move to King George’s Avenue, I am inclined to make my revisit here again soon to check out the other new dishes that they have to offer.


✨Pulled Pork Benedict✨
I’m usually not a fan of pulled pork as it usually tastes dry, but this was the complete opposite! There was just enough sauce in the meat, but not too much till it softens the toast👍🏻

✨Molten Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream✨
The lava cake was really soft and moist! They warmed up nice for you, which makes it a perfect match with the cooling Vanilla Ice Cream! This was a really good way to end the meal😋

📈: 9/10

✨Hazelnut Latte✨
As a person who cannot really take the bitter coffee taste, this latte was perfect for me!😍 It’s not too sweet, but it has a little added flavour which takes away the bitter taste from the drink!

💰: $6
📈: 10/10

🥙Food review:
Looking for an affordable cafe near town? Look no further! This cafe is not as expensive as other cafes and it still provides good quality food!💓I heard the pastas are good, sadly we didn’t order it this time around🥲

✨Big Ben✨
This dish has all different kind of flavours! The mushrooms has quite a smoky and roasted flavour. Also, I’m usually really picky about my scrambled eggs🤣; it needs to be soft, creamy AND buttery🤤 This scrambled egg is more soft and fluffy, tastes a little healthier than I would like😜 The sausage and bacon is quite juicy and meaty, which is a great way to complete this meal😋

💰: $19
📈: 8/10

@habitatcoffee has just moved into my hood (behind NTUC), and it’s pretty insane the variety of cafes in Lavender now! This comforting brunch item was everything I needed after a morning’s workout; a flakey grilled salmon fillet on truffle infused scrambled eggs over a slice of sourdough. Good food and good coffee, made even better by the modern minimalist decor.
