This is Kara cafe’s take on the quintessential big breakfast! Instead of toast, it’s done with waffles with bits of corn and spring onions in them, which I enjoyed. There’s the typical stuff in a big breakfast too like sautéed mushrooms, bacon, roasted tomatoes, some greens, scrambled eggs (which could have been more seasoned) and a grilled sausage which is thoughtfully scored (I love when the inside meat of a sausage is seared).

For those who prefer local food for breakfast, the kaya butter french toast is an option. They use a pandan bread for the french toast, with kaya sandwiched inside. It’s finished off with a giant cold slab of butter and some toasted coconut flakes. Think this would have been better with a thicker slice of toast!

This pretty sourdough french toast was topped with an ample amount of creamy ricotta cheese, granola, candied walnuts and figs. It’s also drizzled with 100% raw honey, which is a nice upgrade from the usual more liquidy syrup. It’s a good choice for people who prefer sweet brunch dishes and certainly very beautiful. Personally would have liked the french toast itself to have more flavour to contrast with the mild tasting ricotta cheese, maybe some cinnamon?

I was honestly sceptical about this because I don’t enjoy most fusion foods, but this was also one of my favourites. The fried chicken with the slightly runny egg, along with the sweet sambal (which was not very spicy), was delicious. I also love that they included some sambal-coated ikan billis inside because it really enhanced the flavour. The cucumber pickles inside the burger and the achar was also a nice contrast and cut through the spice.

The owner of Kara Cafe wanted to have a breakfast menu after having lots more Sunday breakfasts with her family during the circuit breaker, so they now have a new brunch menu! Their dishes have a slight spin on the regular brunch fare - in this case, a Korean shakshuka (baked eggs). The poached eggs are nestled in a slightly spicy chicken stew with bits of chicken, onions, and even chewy tteokbokki (rice cakes), which I thought was a nice touch. It’s served with a crisp sourdough on the side. A really hearty meal!

This was my favourite dish! The grilled cheese sandwich was topped with a seriously thick layer of mashed avocado mixed with corn, which added a lovely sweetness to the dish. Topped with runny sunny side up egg and fried kale chips, this was a great spin on a quintessential brunch dish. It’s definitely no ordinary avocado toast.
