Get your taste buds ready for a mouth-watering brunch experience. Finally visited Supernova, located along Tanjong Katong. Order their Fried Chicken French Toast that comes with maple syrup, a huge slab of crispy, juicy fried chicken and a slab of herb butter to enhance the savoury notes of the dish.

At this price point, I would say that it's extremely worth it based on the portion size & how well executed the dish was. Fluffy toast paired with perfectly deep fried chicken (and not oily as well, mind you), with that maple syrup drizzle that cuts through the savouriness. Mmmm, it is perfect 👌🏼

First up was their Breakfast Sando ($19). Think big breakfast in a sandwich-smoked bacon, scrambled eggs, avo, cheddar cheese & chipotle mayo. The combination was simple but hit all the right notes. The creaminess from the eggs & avo paired with the saltiness of the bacon & cheddar was well-balanced with the chipotle cutting through it, making it easy to go in for the next time.

On the heavier side, we had the Truffle Mushroom Sando ($18). The basic brunch person in me wanted the truffle mushrooms with hash & that's what I got-hash browns, mushrooms, truffle aioli, Mozz & scrambled eggs. Instead of a full on truffle oil drizzle, the truffle aioli added a nice touch, making the sandwich light yet flavourful without the overpowering truffle smell or taste. Overall, it was a decent sandwich which hit all the right spots for me.

On the side, we ordered their Dirty Tater Tots ($12) to share, thinking the sandos were small (huge regret). Their version of dirty comes with a topping of chicken floss, preserved radish (cai poh) & sambal mayo. While it sounds like a strange combination, the flavours goes surprisingly well together!

Probably one of the cheapest black coffee (cafe style) around, Balance Coffee is tucked on the first floor of VIIO Balestier, next to Zhongshan Mall.

Serving up beans roasted in-house, their americano was well-balanced with a nutty finish, without being too acidic, pretty easy on the palate.

It's probably one of the hidden gems in the Balastier area as there's not many cafes around.

It's not everyday that you'd order a decaf, but when you're heavily pregnant & really want coffee, this has got to do.

The Brazil Mogiana Decaf is washed naturally, and comes with a medium body & low acidity. Flavour wise, as with all Brazilian beans; it was a balance between nutty & chocolatey notes, making it really easy to drink & enjoyable. Be it iced or hot, both option tastes really good!

A comforting cuppa of hot white coffee to wash down the cold scoops of ice cream is the perfect way to end off the meal.

Using coffee beans from PPP Coffee, the Neighbourhood Blend is a blend between Pacum Estate Bourbon and Ethiopian Suki Quoto--giving you that chocolatey & fruity finish. With milk, the cacao stands out a lil' more, making it a balanced cuppa that's easily accepted by everyone.

To finish off the meal, wash it down with their @brewlander collab of Elderflower & Lemon ($4.50) or Grapefruit & Ginger ($4.50) soda. The former was a perfect blend of floral & tang, which is extremely refreshing! The latter has a hint of spiciness followed by fruity sweet bitterness, adding another dimension to the fizzy soda. If these are available as a 6 pack, I'd gladly take them 😂⁠

⁠Next was The Slut ($11), a specialty that many raved about. It consists of cage-free eggs as well, coddled on top of house-made potato purée, cooked with grey salt & topped with chives & served with thin slices of baguette. The combination is not mind-blowing as I've had this combo elsewhere, but it was fun to have as you go through the many layers & textures.⁠

Fairfax ($12) was a simple one, with cage-free scrambled eggs, chives, caramlised onions, cheddar cheese & sriracha mayo in between soft warm fluffy brioche buns. We added bacon (+ $3) & also added beef patty (+ $4) to another to amplify the flavours. On its own, its a stunner with the runny eggs no doubt, but with the addition of fatty meat, oof, the flavour changes. Will I have it again? I guess if I'm craving for it & if there's no long queue, then yeah sure.⁠

Coffee by the bay window for a lazy Sunday ☺️ this hole in the wall vibe is the perfect spot to kick start your Sunday while you laze in bed then have a coffee to perk you up.

The White is $5.50 & + $1 for the oat milk. They use oatly, which is usually the barista's choice for most oat milks.

The white was fragrant with hints of floral notes while the black had a liquorice taste followed by a sweet floral finish.
