Located in an industrial estate, Blu Hills Cafe appeals to those in the area with it’s simple, fuss-free menu, and affordable caffeinated drink options.

Their prawn Aglio olio comes with generous portions of prawns, sautéed with olive oil, bird eye’s chilli (aka chilli padi), and loads of garlic.

A decent portion of aglio olio if you’re looking for some light & simple!

For drinks, try out their iced chocolate! They get their Choco from Australian brand, Grounded Pleasures!

Apart from its industrial interior & extremely famous desserts & croissants from its sibling company, @brotherbird_bakehouse, @stateland_coffeehouse has a pretty exciting menu as well!

My new fav would be their Mentaiko Tiger Prawn Aglio Olio ($20)! The Aglio Olio is mixed with tobiko and topped with Mentaiko sauce & additional tobiko to give you small bubbles of saltiness amidst the juicy tiger prawns & the al dente spaghetti! After a good toss & mix, each strand of spaghetti is coated perfectly with mentaiko & tobiko, without being too overpowering.

Another option you can choose is the KFC & Waffle ($18). KFC aka Korean Fried Chicken, is soy glazed chicken seated atop their cinnamon scented waffle with a side of kimchi slaw to balance the sweet and savoury with a tinge of sour! Definitely a winner!

Also, a special mention to their side of Fried Cauliflower! Dehydrated, battered and deep fried cauliflower is tossed in curry powder to give you that crunchy but healthy tasty veggie dish that you need! Even non-veggie lovers (like me) do fancy this dish quite a fair bit!

Finally made it here after hearing a lot about it!

The industrial, all-white interior definitely draws you to the store. Apart from the counter seats which allows you to watch the action behind each pour, there are a couple of smaller tables around for groups or couples to be at.

The Iced Black was the perfect remedy to an extremely hot day. Their house beans were likely a darker roast, with hints of sweetness towards the end.

They also have simple cakes, carts & croissants available to pair with your coffee if you’re feeling peckish.

New on their menu would be their Aburi Mentaiko Salmon ($16)! Choose between garlic Japanese rice or quinoa salad (+$3) as a base which goes with any of their mains! We went for the Quinoa Salad for a lighter & slightly healthier option!
.
Perfectly grilled slabs of salmon were placed atop the chilled salad, before generous portions are spread on top of the salmon and torched lightly. Afterwhich, a sprinkle of garnished & a onsen ramen egg is set to complete the look.
.
A sure proof that healthy food can look gorgeous & taste super yummy!

Thank you @burpple for arranging this eat up!

Always my number one recommendation for coffee & brunch is at @onemancoffee 🙊 not because I was an ex-employee, but because of the affordable items & friendly team that works behind the bar. If you’ve been to either of their outlets (Upper Thomson or Fusionopolis), you’d know!
.
From the last that I’ve dined at this outlet, the menu has expanded with new favourites which includes the Smashed Avocado on Sourdough ($13) and the Spicy Mushroom Aglio Olio ($14).
.
The smashed avo toast came with a pop of colour using cherry tomatoes, and extra textures of feta cheese & almonds on top. With that squeeze of lemon, that’s one perfect toast.
.
On to the pasta, if you love your shrooms, this one’s for you. The umami earthy flavours of the mushrooms are being tossed together with the pasta, topped with pine nuts to give you that extra nutty flavour.
.
If you’re on #burpplebeyond, even better! You’d get 1 for 1 mains, which means both of these for just $14 (say whutttttt!!)! Don’t say I bojio, if you haven’t already gotten on to Burpple Beyond, click the link in my bio to sign up!

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we got pasta at two for the price of one!
.
The Pasta Bolognese ($16) was a simple, comfort-food like dish; made from minced pork, macaroni, roma tomatoes & meat sauce. The choice to use macaroni made it a simple, fuss-free dish, without worrying that you might get pasta sauce stains on your white tops.

If you’re lactose intolerant but still want your milk-based coffee, rejoice! One of the rare few places that serves their own version of nut milk is Oriole Coffee + Bar!

Made with almonds, macadamia and dates, Oriole’s M.A.D milk is sweet to taste, and actually much sweeter than normal milk thanks to the natural sweetness of dates.

Adding in their Taisho Cold Brew made from their Raven blend, you get a sweet milky coffee that’s perfect for the insanely hot weather without feeling too guilty or have a stomach churning from your lactose intolerance.

The gorgeous interior would probably be the thing that catches your attention as you turn into the carpark as it stands as a massive teepee tent, with sofas, carpets and wooden furniture that decks the interior.

Instead of offering you a menu at the table, join the queue at the counter where the food options are being laid out behind the glass display and pick your choice of pastry or bakes!

My personal favourite apart from the Kouign Amann (a must order!!) would be their Quiche Lorraine! It is packed with thin slices of ham within the egg custard mixture and is baked within their crisp thin pastry walls, kinda like a flan, but a savoury version of it.

Apart from the gorgeous exterior, the specials on their menu would be their caffeine-free drinks which we skipped cause everyone needs their morning cup of joe.

A definite order to have whenever you’re at Brawn & Brains! The perfect combination of a big breakfast I’d say!

You’ve got 2 perfectly toasted slices of sourdough (not in image), creamy avocado, molten eggs in cheese, smoked salmon and a generous portion of salad on the side.

If you’re not too hungry, this is just right for 2! Otherwise, you could finish it on your own!

Made it to @benjaminbarkercafe which is located at Orchard Cineleisure, where the old B Burger used to be! The space is so gorgeous & screams insta-worthy from possibly every angle.

Apart from the gorgeous interior, they also serve up pretty decent brunch items!

We had the BB Benedict ($15), Laksa Pasta ($19) & BB Cafe Brunch ($21) with a side of Mentaiko Fries ($13) to share.

If you’re starving or have a really huge appetite, I’d recommend the BB Cafe Brunch, because it came as a massive pile and will definitely save your starving belly. Go for the BB Ben if you’d like to play safe cause you’d definitely can’t go wrong with that! If you’re looking for an asian twist, the laksa pasta would be the right choice for you!
