Aptly named to pay homage to the history of this street in which the Majies will swear in by combing up their hair and take a vow of celibacy, the Sor Hei is shaped as a hair bun. It is technically a black and white Danish pastry with chocolate chips hidden within in. It’s gonna be awhile before I can get these again once the circuit breaker kicks in.

By using soy milk instead of fresh milk, it results in the coffee having a slight tartness and thicker mouthfeel which elevates the boldness and nuttiness from the blend. On a side note, the passionfruit Danish is absolutely delish, with the perfect buttery crust and tangy flow of the passionfruit curd

Fortunately, this happens to be one of our favourites with the crispy exterior, chewy texture of the mochi donut with the earl grey ice cream. A perfect pairing of hot and cold.

For people that know me will know that I don’t really fancy raw fish as much to the point that I will not even go near the sashimi section in the buffet. However, the freshly cut barramundi cubes in the Barramundi Poke Bowl ($18) that have been marinated in a sesame oil blend is so addictive that you will want to have more of it. Probably due to the aromatic oil and the freshness of the fish, which was locally farmed in Singapore, these made all the difference and for me, a convert to raw fish. The pairing of the avocado and poached eggs adds creaminess while the roasted vegetables and padron peppers lends the slight charred bitterness.

For people working around the Lavender/Kallang area, you have a beautiful space in Banchong Cafe where they serve local favourites such as coffee and toast, nasi lemak and a good bowl of curry chicken. We suspect that the potatoes might have been simmering in the curry for many hours as it’s soft and the spices have seeped into it. The curry gravy is thick, creamy and flavourful, very good with rice or bread.

This might come as a surprise that out of the three that we have tried, my favourite is actually the Barramundi Poke Bowl ($18) over the beef and vegetable options. The poke bowl is everything Singapore as the barramundi is farmed and caught in our local shores. Freshly cut into cubes, the fish is marinated in an aromatic sesame oil mixture before it joins in the party of mixed roasted vegetable, avocado dip and roasted padron peppers on a bed of greens. A poached egg is then topped in the middle as the crowning jewel with the runny yolk providing a creamy mouthfeel. This is not to say that the Steak Bowl ($20) is not any good, but the marinated barramundi literally swam away with the gold medal on this day. Nonetheless, if you are in for something meaty, you still can get perfectly grilled to medium rare ribeye steak in a bowl or prefer to go all vegetarian with the Halloumi Fever Bowl ($17) that comes with a medley of roasted vegetables from aubergine, zucchini, padron peppers and artichokes.

And on my rest days, all I want is to some local food, coffee and toast, added bonus if the place is decorated as beautifully as Banchong Cafe.

Three reasons why I want to visit Banchong Cafe; firstly, I’m on leave, secondly, the cafe opens on Mondays and lastly, this cafe only operates from Mondays to Fridays which makes it almost impossible for me to get here if I’m working.

From today onwards, Sideways has launched a new lunch menu which includes soon-to-be-favourites such as the Smoked Brisket Sandwich ($18), Squid Morta Cigars ($13) and the Charred Scallops and Smoked Broth ($18), the latter a seasonal item in the menu and served with their homemade freshly baked bread. The vision of Sideways is focused on serving healthy, nutritious and sustainable food produce without compromising on the taste and convenience. Take for example the Squid Morta Cigars which uses no MSG or additives, and cooked in their home-built firebrick oven, served with sliced mortadella. Last but not least, for someone who wishes to have a meatier light bite, there’s The Big Souvlaki ($18); pulled lamb ribs joining forces with a mixed salad, cucumbers and jalepno hummus on a taco wrap.

This hole-in-the-wall bakehouse actually freshly bakes their croissants daily which you can reserve them in advanced or try your luck by walking in to the store.
