Yet another amazing dish rendered by Gastrosmiths. This was an extraordinary dish and we were truly blown away by the quality of the ingredients. There were 4 kinds of Japanese mushrooms used (pardon my forgetfulness of their names), and they were sliced SO thick and fresh, and then layered with generous slices of Parmesan cheese that went so incredibly well with the al-dente pasta and mushrooms. There were also hints of truffle oil used. Just amazing. Will definitely be back for so much more.

One of the best poached eggs I've had in cafes! The slight touch of Japanese infusion was amazing. To start off, what stood out was the seaweed (who would expect seaweed on eggs?) it was marinated and flavored so delicately with a blend of sweetness, saltiness and a hint of spicyness. It was just the umami flavour. Moving on, the smoked salmon were so fresh, and portions were generous. They were not overly salty (like those typically found in cafes), and could tell that they were marinated before, as it bore saltiness and a tinge of sourness that rightly balanced out. And the eggs, oh goodness they were so good! Reputedly known as the 63 degrees eggs, they were beautifully presented as the yolks were large and yellow, and when slurped in one shot, it was just heavens. They were cooked just right, and just so amazing when paired with the seaweed and smoked salmon. It was extraordinary how the chef managed to infuse Japanese elements into such a western dish of poached eggs to make it so unique. And oh yes, the bread of the day was oatmeal bread, and as ordinary as it sounds, it was not. It was toasted just right, not too dry or hard, and still soft and fresh in the middle. Amazing combination. Will definitely be back for other dishes!

Wouldn't consider it a 'magic-al' cup of coffee as it was rather ordinary. However, it must be credited for the right balance of milk and caffeine, and it was neither too milky/ frothy or overpowering.

Just good old warm, plain milk that's so ever comforting and necessary to make my breakfast a complete one.

This was the most priciest item on the menu, but perhaps (or not) worth the tag. 3 thick pancakes arrived drenched in maple syrup, bananas, ricotta cheese and crushed pistachios. Pancakes were dense and not the kind of fluffy airy kinds that I was expecting. Ricotta cheese went surprisingly well with the pancakes. However, give me Macs hot cakes any day and I would be contented with them already - airy and fluffy the way I like them.

Found this not really worth the price tag, though the poached eggs were really good and soft inside and bursted in one slurp, and smoked salmon and avocado went so good. Spread the avocado on top the multigrain toast and taste was perfect with some salmon atop! Pity the toast were over toasted, being dry and hard.

Perfectly toasted ciabatta that was crunchy on the outside and soft inside, laced with generous portions of beef and mozzarella cheese!

A creative and unique mix that can be rather bitter to some due to the infusion of lavender bits on top. Beautiful presentation otherwise! A tad pricey though.

This was the first time we have seen such an incredibly cute shortcrust pastry pie stamped with the initials 'CM' that stood for Chicken mushroom. It was filled with tender chicken chunks, and the pastry wasn't too soggy. Came with greens and chips but we swapped all for chips instead.

Was a rather filling portion filled with bacon and mushroom. Garlicky and strong in taste. It went well with our add-on pork bratwurst sausage ($4).

Filled with hazelnuts, although it was supposedly a dark chocolate brownie, I found it rather sweet. It was slightly dry and kept crumbling as well.

Little tart of zesty lemony goodness! Adored the tangy lemony taste that wasn't too sweet.
