Was out for brunch on a weekend and wanting something different from the usuals. Truffle and eggs are both my fav so it was easy to decide.

The taste of the parma ham was overwhelming for me over here compared to the ones I had at other places so I left it aside.

Grated truffle on Scrambled Eggs was a good combination, they were not heavy handed on the truffle for people who may be concerned when it comes to overpowering truffle taste and smell.

Brioche was alright, gave way easily upon cutting so it wasn’t a hassle.

All Day Breakfast here starts at 8.30am, though limited items on the menu, the place has this relaxed atmosphere probably more evident during their non peak hours.

Pulled pork isn’t something I see on the menu at any other cafe thus it caught my attention whilst I was scrolling through the menu 🍳 Also because their menu isn’t extensive, and at $14 for brunch at a cafe is really good price point.

Peri-peri sauce has a slightly sour taste so it does not make the overall taste predictable and flat. Yet not overpowering so it plays a really good supporting role.

Pulled pork is good with a generous serving underneath the eggs benny. Brioche can be a little more toasted and crisp, otherwise its stellar.

Went on a weekend, perhaps they are understaffed thus the lack in service.

I like the idea of having half portions so we can try more items on the menu. Really surprised the half portion seems like a full portion at any other places.

Loaded with jumbo lumps of crab meat, it is eye catching and makes me want to dig in fast πŸ¦€πŸ The chili crab sauce did not lean towards the sweeter side, which I personally prefer. Its more tangy and tomatoey than spicy which is fine, the beaten eggs in it adds brownie points to this main.

All in all the sauce is legit good, better than how some seafood restaurants would have done it. Not to be missed!

Avocado, Feta, Tomato, Poached Eggs, Sesame seeds, Crushed Hazelnuts with Rustic Toast.

Runny poached eggs with really generous serving of avocado. Toast itself isn’t too hard to slice, a classic dish for breakfast at a cafe yet really hearty because each component complements each other when its done well.

Didn’t manage to try their desserts because I went there early for brekkie (10am - 3pm) but would love to go back again to explore more of the menu.

Ambience and service was good, a serene place to visit with sightings of horses parading around 🐎

Sprinkled around in Korea, this place serves pastries and the likes of coffee, lattes and iced drinks. The vanilla eclair attracted me because of the specks of vanilla beans. To my surprise, the inside is filled with custard which isn’t overly sweet and adds on layers of flavor to it. The valrhona hot chocolate here is also a drink to consider.

A savory, rich soup base, topped with parmesan cheese and a giant tiger prawn. Soup base was all good, just that I wished ratio of soup base to spaghetti could be more even. Also, at the price of $20.80 it might seem a little steep for just a giant prawn sitting atop. It was yummy nevertheless and would be good with some minor tweaking as mentioned.

Waited half an hour for my main but only the bacon is passable. Scrambled egg was rather bland and tasteless, while the measly 3 slices of mushrooms made it worse. Not recommended.

Super creamy, perfect scrambled eggs. The best I've had thus far in cafes. Buttered toasts goes well with it, the portobello mushroom (which could be done better) made it a complete meal to start the day right.

The truffle fries here are really good, beats lots of places and thus became my favorite so far. The fries are perfect, still crisp even after some time, the dip itself enhances the flavor which made it so yummy and addictive. Must try and must have, worth every penny.

Al dente spaghetti with creamy rich carbonara sauce was well done. Portion may look small but its actually very filling.

Consists of: hokkaido sashimi scallops, yuzu, koji.

Sashimi scallops itself was really soft, chewy & fresh. Food lovers who loves the kind of tanginess will like this dish. A little disappointed in the portion for the price, good to try but it's not a must have or to-go-back for.

One of those mains that doesn't look fanciful but the taste will win you over. There was this creamy texture, similar to what cream based pasta gives you. Pork itself were real flavorful, soft and there was a generous amount of it. I couldn't stop gushing bout it for each bite I've taken. Must try & I'll go back for it!
