Besides their famous Pizza Fries, Alter Ego has now made available the Curried Salted Egg Yolk Fries ($14) and Mexicano Taco Fries ($16) in the menu. The base fries are the same but it comes drizzled in a different topping in which the former is doused in salted egg yolk sauce that’s sweet, salty and spicy while the latter pays homage to the Mexican culture with guacamole, grilled chicken, cheese sauce, spicy salsa and more nacho cheese. Order this to share and wash them down with their range of $5 bottled beers.

The idea behind this new menu, according to owner and award-winning barista Ryan Kieran Tan, is to showcase brunch food in a conscious and refined manner, while maintaining the affordability and comfort though the cooking methods and ingredients used. During the media tasting event, we had the opportunity to sample these new dishes that were prepared with fresh quality ingredients and homemade sauces. For starters, diners can look forward to the refreshing Snapper Ceviche ($13.90) and Roasted Cauliflower Salad ($14.50) before moving on to the Salmon Skin Chips ($11.90) which pays tribute to offcuts such as salmon skin as these ingredients have been upcycled and presented in a delicious way. For entrees, there’s the meat options of Pan Roasted Chicken Breast ($21.90) and Pork & Broccoli ($21.90). If you are in the mood for eggs and toast, there’s always the signature Strangers’ Reunion brunch classic of Strangers’ Coffee Smoked Salmon on Toast ($18.90, pictured), which the name suggests; salmon cured and cold-smoked with coffee grounds and hickory wood to represent the coffee-centric theme of the café. Served with toasted sourdough bread that has been slathered with an espresso infused crème fraiche, the salmon is joined by poached eggs that completes the entire dish.

The past few times it didn’t leave me wanting more, however, the McGriddles today did sparked a little more joy. I highly recommend going for the upsized version with cheese and egg as the savouriness helps to balance out the sweetness of the buns. Whether I’m lovin it or not remains to be told.

There’s two different coffee blends currently available at the Brawn & Brains East Coast outlet, and I definitely prefer the house blend which is less acidic with a nuttier flavour.

Talk about a bittersweet moment, this particular flavour has been my favourite from the beginning and I do hope they don’t take this away anytime soon! Next up on their seasonal rotational flavours are the honey pecan and coconut pandan.

Food can look good but does not necessary mean it will taste good and with the explosion of social media; people tend to lean towards Instagram-worthy food trends over such ugly delicious food. The Sloppy Waffles ($20) sure plays the part of an ugly delicious food as on first glance, it looks like a heap of items stacked on top of each other on a plate. All the things that you want in a savoury waffle is on this plate; from the scrambled eggs to grilled chicken thigh, with the bacon and cheese on top of what seemed to taste like a sriracha waffle (I might be wrong in this). Served with a side of Thai peanut curry sauce, it brings a bit of heat when drizzled onto the mountain stack. This plate can definitely feed two and after which the food coma will hit you hard. Forget about counting the calories and just head to the gym another day while you slowly enjoy what might be one of the best savoury waffles in Singapore.

I certainly am not aware as I will usually walk past (guilty as charged) Nick Vina Artisan Bakery to go over to Matchaya or Two Men Bagel House, but for some reason that day, I’ve a strong craving for pastry after my gym session and decided to pop by to take a closer look. To my amazement, they actually have a wide assortment of breads and pastries, all baked in-house in their large oven. As I was there in the late afternoon, most of the stuff was sold out and I settled for an Almond Croissant ($2.40). Perhaps it was baked much earlier and as a result the croissant sort of loses a certain freshness as the initial bites were met with dry and hard puff pastry. However, once I have reached the middle, the aromatic and buttery goodness shines through. Paired with the sweetness and nuttiness of the almonds, this is totally calling out for a cup of coffee to go alongside it. Best advice I can give on this experience is to go early and get the bakes when they are fresh out of the oven!

Since this is our first time trying the brown sugar drinks from this brand, we opted for their signature Brown Sugar Boba Milk, which comes at a rather pricey cost of $5.30. Recommended to shake a total of 15 times before drinking, I think we sort of did that ideal number of shakes so that the brown sugar mixes well with the fresh milk. Overall, the brown sugar when mixed in with the Meiji fresh milk was not cloyingly sweet and the fragrance from it makes it a very palatable cup of drink. The usage of boba, a bigger form of tapioca pearls, was the X-factor for me as compared to other bubble tea brands out there currently that uses the normal ones. The only downside was the price as it costs $5.30 for this cup, which I most probably will only get it once in a blue moon.

Dusted with some edible rose petals, this soft serve is a reliever from the recent heat wave, bringing a tinge of sweetness and floral fragrance from each scoop. Available exclusively at the Icon Village outlet, do get it before it runs out!

Titled the Valentine’s Day Gems, the lineup includes the candy-shaped Bonbons ($12) to the cutesy Teddy ($12). The former is an almond hazelnut feuilletine crust that’s filled with Hojicha mousse layered with black sugar crémeux and sponge fingers while the latter is the incredibly cute stuffed toy inspired sweet that’s made with a crust of almond Sable and a filling of mango mousse sponge fingers and jasmine crémeux with walnut nougatine.

Soaked in buttermilk and then deep fried, the chicken thigh is both juicy and well marinated. To up the ante further, you will be given both a maple butter syrup and salted egg yolk sauce so that you have the best of both worlds.

If you are there as a group, there’s also the Pulled Pork Sliders ($14.80); deep fried man tou sandwiched with an 8-hour slow roasted pork shoulder. This was so juicy that the meat juices are flowing out with the slightest squeeze.
