It's been awhile since I last cafe-hop, but finally visited this popular spot that I heard of.

Tried one of their signature desserts - Grape & Ricotta Matcha Brioche ($13). One might find the combination of fruit & cheese strange, but this surprisingly works pretty! The sweet-sour tang of the grapes, paired with the savoury ricotta works pretty well! To top it, a sprinkle of lavender bits perfumes the dish & your mouth. It surprisingly doesn't overpower the other flavours, but gives it a light gentle flavour boost. Probably the thing that sets it apart from other fruit-cheese combinations.

That aside, coffee is pretty decent as they take it from @commonmancoffee ☕️ as their kitchen closes early on weekends, so it's a great tea time spot to be at!

With beans from 2 degrees north, Brotherbird Coffeehouse pours a chocolate-y base coffee ending with sweet toffee notes with a slight nuttiness.

The flavours are more prominent as a milk-based 5.5oz white, while the nuttiness is more prominent in the black.

Along with the coffee, do have a go at their selection of croissants or desserts!

Alternatively, go for their Croque Madame ($18) which comes with thick slices of brioche toast, filled with smoked ham, Roma tomatoes, bechamel, gryere & topped with a perfect sunny egg with the side salad & roasted garlic tomato.

If you've enough stomach, remember to get your hands on the all time fav - soft serve with mochi donuts, or their croissants! 🥐

This brunch staple comes with homemade sourdough, a generous heap of avocado, sprinkled with mixed nuts, topped with an oozy poached egg with a side of salad & roasted garlic tomato. The combination is the perfect simple harmony for a brunch dish.

An all time brunch favourite - the Avocado Toast! 🥑🍞

A generous portion of freshly squashed avocado, is smeared over homemade toasted sourdough, and topped with an assortment of sliced almonds & pumpkin seeds; and a perfectly poached egg!

It also comes with a side with salad, and grilled tomatoes to balance the dish out.

The best part, it's an entire avocado per portion 😍

Their new & improved brunch menu has this under To Share, but if you're a person with a huge appetite, I think this is perfect for you!

Freshly baked homemade sourdough is paired with in-house made & jarred duck rilette & gherkins.

The sourdough slices are thick, yet fluffy & perfectly toasted to give you that crispy crunch of the edge, which leaving the mid portion fluffy & soft. The rilette is soaked in its own duck fat, giving you that savoury burst before melting onto the toast.

Pop in half a gherkin with every bite to give you that sour punch to help cut through the savoury bites of it's too much for you, but overall a pretty great brunch dish!

Possibly the dish that's a hot favourite, as I saw it on almost every table; the Miso Mushroom Bacon Risotto did not fall short of its popularity!

It consists of miso bacon, oyster mushrooms, fried enoki, organic egg atop barley risotto that was soaked in miso-mushroom-bacon broth; making it extremely savoury yet somewhat healthy!

The portion may seem quite small, but as the barley expands with every mouthful, you'd realise you're almost filled to the brim after you're done.

But don't forget desserts, please have their Earl Grey Soft Serve to end the meal!!

Brought back this gem of a croissant & it still tastes amazing!!!!

Brotherbird is back again with this amazing croissant - Strawberry Daifuku. Daifuku is a traditional mochi dessert from Japan that usually comes with stuffings. So what they did was add daifuku & strawberry compote into a croissant.

This combination is pure genius, and oh, so delicious. The strawberry compote is slightly sweet with a hint of sour, paired with the q-ness of the daifuku & the savoury fluffy croissant.

Do let it before it runs out, otherwise you really might regret it!

Thankfully with #BurppleBeyond, this dish was free!

Promo aside, the Tom Kha Capellini packed the perfect Tom yum punch into every strand of capellini! It came with hints of lemongrass, with a slight sour tang, followed by a kick of chilli!

Topped with minced charred shrimps, ebi & shrimp floss, you’ve got yourself a great fusion of Thai & Italian!

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!
