Our original reservation was at 10+am, but we ended up leaving to return at noon for their bigger lunch menu. Went straight for this Pork and Pear Tartine and enjoyed it! It was a well-thought out dish - crunchy ciabatta bread topped with a generous portion of caramelised onions, roasted pears, bacon and ricotta. Bread was so nicely toasted and crunchy, and you get a medley of flavours from sweetness, savouriness to a subtle earthiness. That said, it’s best to share as it can get a little sweet if you’re having this all on your own.

Apollo uses farro grains for their risottos. This one came with miso bacon, oyster mushrooms, fried enoki and an oozy egg. The crispy bits of bacon especially, were a smart savoury touch! Pricey, but we did enjoy the earthiness and good bite.

This was like a platter of all the breakfast items - bacon, breaded parmesan tomato, spinach, sautéed mushrooms, sausage, scrambled eggs and a slice of toasted sourdough. Scrambled eggs tasted a little more like an omelette but I didn’t mind it.

Communal Coffee’s on Burpple Beyond for 1 for 1 mains. Thank you @communalcoffeesg for having us and @burpple for the invite! ✨

Every first weekend (Fri to Sun) of the month, Paddy Hills rolls out their buffet menu for two dinner seatings - 6pm to 8pm and 8pm to 10pm. There were 17 dishes on their menu this time round (check their Insta for more updates) from appetisers to mains, sides, barbecue and sweets. Liked that they minimised all the portions, which also meant you’d have more space to try out more. The two of us managed to finish everything on the menu!

We had some hits and misses in our dinner. Don’t think we’ll come back again soon but it’s also not bad a chance to try out some of their popular dishes like the Hei Rice, Truffle Capellini and Signature Berry Ball. Service was friendly and quick, even though not all the dishes were served as hot. Our favs were the fresh creamy Oysters with Grape Bubbles, crispy and rich PH Salted Egg Yolk Wings and chocolate-y Homemade Double Fudge Brownie that’s served with a beer milkshake.

A Western Japanese fusion dish, the Summer Pasta has tagliatelle done in bacon cream sauce with fennel, watercress, cherry tomatoes and Parmigiano Reggiano. Tagliatelle was al dente, even though I felt like it didn’t quite pick up the sauce’s bright flavours as much - but I still enjoyed the delightfully light ‘summery’ flavours and how it wasn’t jelak like what we’d usually expect cream based pastas to be. Nice mix of textures from the bunch of different ingredients too! The pasta’s available on their lunch menu from 11.30am to 3pm and the actual portion is bigger as this was the tasting portion.

Was super happy to see this on the menu - it’s what we missed out on in Japan! Grids & Circles does their version of the toast with pear sauce, homemade konbu mayo and a fluffy slab of Japanese style tamago egg sandwiched in between. Liked the light touches of savouriness and sweetness, along with the slightly tangy mayo. Looks simple but was a lovely treat, though I’d like more of that sweet pear sauce to better balance out the flavours. Actual serving comes with greens and salted crisps, and it’s available on the menu till 6pm!

To start of our meal, we were served with this bowl of Watercress Potage with Bacon, made from a blend of russet potatoes and watercress. Although it had a thicker stew-like consistency, it was kinda creamy tasting and wasn’t too heavy.

A reliable choice of sides here at Atlas, the crispy truffle fries comes in a good portion for group sharing and it’s not too oily nor overwhelmed with truffle.

No beef for me but here’s their Modanyaki Angus Beef Slider that’s up on the dinner menu from 6pm onwards - Angus beef patty with okonomiyaki sauce and cheddar cheese!

Came down just for this - it’s actually not a permanent item on the menu as they rotate their items daily, so make sure to check before making your trip! For the price, this was worth it - thick toast with oozy cheese (cheesiness leaned towards the lighter sort) and lots of cheese shavings on the top, with a side of peppers and rockets. Didn’t quite like that the dressing for the rockets was soaked up by the bottom side of our sandwich, but other than that, it’s a good sized dish to share!

Our first reaction to this was ‘so many scallops!!!’ This was pan-seared scallops with risotto in a creamy mentaiko sauce - the texture of the risotto can be improved, but it easily satisfied our mentaiko cravings. The generous portion of scallops were pan-seared well too with a soft centre.

Thank you @goodolddaysbistro for having us over! 🙆🏻‍♀️

The scallops here were chopped up and mixed with shreds of crab stick, topped with mayo and cheese. It was a mix of sweet and savoury, but unfortunately were a tad over cooked. Would have also preferred for the scallops to be served in whole to get more bite and texture.
