Forget about all the trendy and hipster cafes that serves most run-off-the-mill brunch items, this is one place that takes pride in serving good eats in a comfortable environment. As quoted from their website, the café is “dedicated to creating food that is both honest and of the highest quality”, which speaks volume to the dedication and passion they put into their menu so that you are consuming only the natural and premium grade ingredients from their in-house breads to the fillings and homemade sauces in their sandwiches.

Prior to this visit, I was recommended the Eggstatic Brioche ($5.50) which I duly got and this didn’t disappoint at all even though it might seem like a normal combination of eggs and bread, the creamy scrambled eggs in the brioche pullman is so good, you will want to take an extra bite after each mouthful. Another that totally hits the spot is the Lox & Cheese ($11.50), which is perhaps my favourite for the day and got me salivating at the thought of it. This sandwich is constructed with a base of wholewheat pullman with a spread of cream cheese, Löwe'f berry jam and lined with smoked salmon, pickled cucumbers, shallots and dill. The lady got the Portobello Burger ($14.50), a recommendation by the staff and it was equally amazing; a roasted portobello mushroom with other accompaniments of caramelized onions, mature cheddar, emmental, butterhead lettuce, roasted tomato, pickled cucumber and honey mustard, sandwiched between a brioche bun. We ended the meal with the Super Lemon Tart ($7), the tanginess that hits you from the get-go before the sweetness lingers in at the end.

You can relax your afternoons away with a cup together with a range of desserts, tea cakes or ice cream. Pictured is the café’s most popular creation and perhaps the poster child in Instagram, the Kopi ShakeTM ($12), which it’s a spectacle by itself during the preparation process as the barista will blend the coffee with evaporated and condensed milk, give it a good shake before pouring it into a cocktail glass and finished off with a line of cocoa powder.

The new kid on the block, City Donut just opened on Tuesday but has since received much fanfare for their locally inspired donuts with fillings such as Milo Dinosaur and Pandan Gula Melaka. Price point wise, they are definitely more affordable than the rest at around the $2 range. When we were there on a Saturday afternoon, they almost sold out their remaining donuts and fortunately we managed to try two of them. Between the two, the Pandan Gula Melaka fared slightly better with its generous palm sugar coconut but it can get messy while eating as the filling is too watery and the dough soaks up the liquid. To me, the donuts felt more like a bun as the texture was denser. As for the Milo Dinosaur, the chocolate malt filling was just too creamy and lacking the Milo powder taste.

There is probably only a small sticker at their door front which coincidentally is of a similar shade to their curtains, hence it might not be as visible at all unless you look carefully. All that aside, Kki Sweets probably has one of the most aesthetically pleasing cakes and plated desserts that you can find these days. So much so that their menu doesn’t come with any pictures, but a colour palette to “let your imagination guide your taste buds” – as quoted in their menu. With a minimum order of one cake or plated dessert per guest, and since there are three of us, we got three of their available cakes that day. Between the “J” ($13.50), Marronnier ($9.50) and Teh ($9.50), my favourite has got to be the latter. And not to frame any sorts of precedence, you should make a reservation and try it yourself so that you can let your imagination and taste buds run wild. All we can reveal is that the Teh is a dessert of earl grey, pear and hazelnut while the “J” is black sesame, yuzu and matcha, while the Marronnier contains chestnut, red fruits and cassis.

Butter Bean is a contemporary Nanyang coffee concept experience by the BreadTalk Group, targeted at the younger generation’s lifestyle by offering coffee-based beverages, toasts, sandwiches and other familiar local dishes with a twist, all with no pork or lard used. Evolving with the new digital age, Butter Bean offers an online ‘Order & Pay’ system for contactless orders and will be rolling out delivery options via GrabFood and Foodpanda soon.

The Arabica and Robusta coffee beans used at Butter Bean undergo the Torrefacto roasting method, by coating the beans with a layer of caramelised sugar to give it a nice sweetness. The beans are then grounded in small batches, brewed with hot water and goes through the sock method to create our local kopi-o gao kosong. This base is then used for the coffee beverages such as BBrûlée Kopi Latte ($3.20) and G.M. Kopi BBliss ($3.50), both with tea alternatives available. Besides the range of beverages, diners can look forward to a menu of food products such as the open faced toasts with a variety of spreads and toppings like PB&J ($2.80), Say Cheese! ($2.80), pocket sandwiches filled with omelette, slicked cheese, lettuce with a choice of battered fried fish ($4.60) or crispy fried chicken ($4.60). For a more substantial meal, the remaining hot foods include the Curry on Sunshine ($6.80), a piece of juicy fried chicken on top of a bed of steamed rice with scrambled eggs and a side of curry with potatoes, and the Hey You Hae Mee ($6.80), the twist of our classic prawn noodles served with braised chicken.

At this almost a month’s old store, they will be retailing fresh seasonal durians straight from their farm in Raub, Penang, that’s also available for delivery, and other durian snacks such as wafers, nougats, freeze dried purée, egg rolls and the soon-to-be-launched mao shan wang snowskin mooncakes, including a host of cute merchandise that will be available soon. Do keep a lookout at their Instagram page @durianbb.sg for more updates on their new rollouts including a durian soft serve bar in the store.

Pictured on the right are the new flavours with the top being the Raspberry White Chocolate to symbolise the colours of our flag while the bottom is the Coconut Pandan with Gula Melaka, paying homage to one of the traditional Peranakan snacks, the ondeh ondeh. The former has the refreshing tangy raspberry flavour notes while complementing the milkiness from the white chocolate. The latter has a floral aroma of the pandan and coconut milk with the sweetness from the gula melaka. When you’re there, do also try out their signature scoops such as the Roasted Pistachio and Green Tea Toasted Rice that’s pictured on the left.

At the same time, if they have good bakes to go alongside the coffee, that will be the ideal pairing.

The one dish that is iconic to PS. Café and something that most people can associate them with are their Truffle Shoestring Fries and without much surprise, the image of this dish appears frequently in their page. With a not-so-overpowering truffle oil fragrance, these fries are so enjoyable to snack on that they come in two sizes; regular and halved. If you are dining as a group or just feel super hungry, you can consider the regular portion which comes in a mountain-sized portion with generous shavings of grated parmesan. These fries are so addictive that you cannot stop eating them despite feeling full. Another default dish that I have been ordering over the past few visits is their Chicken Rossa Penne, which comes with grilled chicken, smoked bacon, spinach and mixed mushrooms. What makes this dish work is the balance of flavours as you have the cheesiness from the cheese and tanginess from the garlic-tomato cream sauce.

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.
