Pro-tip: Perching your container on the dashboard while you drive home may seem like a good idea to keep your food warm under the sun... But when you make a right turn, your container is gonna slide away & fall to the ground.

Thank God my bagel fit snugly into the container I brought. It emerged from the tumble to the ground unharmed. #saynotobaddriving #strapyourfoodin #seatbeltsplease

To make my journey worthwhile (& because I'm a little fatty), I also bought Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel ($9.50 nett) to go. Bagels generally travel & keep well. Even when biting in at room temperature, it wasn't stiff or tough. The cream cheese & capers within added creaminess & acidity to this breakfast delight.

Breakfast is available daily 7:30 - 11AM. Sarnies is one of the rare cafés that start their day so early - great for all you early birds who want to catch those worms 🙂

Breakfast Set = 1 Baked Good + Coffee/Tea. There are 2 different price points: $6.90 or $5.90 per set. I bought the more expensive one, choosing both options for baked goods to cover all ground:
- Turkey Ham & Cheese Croissant
- Smoked Salmon Quiche

Both of these are $5.90 on their own, so this set is really worth it. & when you swipe Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 deal, you save even more!

My croissant was deflated by the time I reached home, probably from being heated up before being packed away 😢 It looked sad, but was surprisingly delicious! Sufficient saltiness from the turkey ham, harmonized with the slight creaminess of the emmental cheese. The croissant wasn't crispy anymore, but if you saw this as a light & flaky piece of bread, I guess that's ok 😂

I thought I'd like the quiche more, but I wasn't a fan of the mushyness of the salmon. I'd prefer larger flakes of chunky fish.. But that's my preference. Taste wise, it was okay. It is pretty dense, with a good crumbly crust.

Which one would I order again? The croissant, actually. Even though the quiche is substantially more filling. I just liked the flavours a lot better.

Tucked in a corner of Onze @ Tanjong Pagar, an inconspicuous condominium nestled in a cul-de-sac, I don't think That Coffee & Beer Place gets much passerby traffic. It was Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 deals that brought me here.

Premium membership gives you 2 Coffee/Tea deals, 2 Set Meal deals. I originally wanted to just get a coffee, but the breakfast set (served 8 - 11AM, Mon - Sat) deal was pretty tempting.

With brunch options, pastries & coffee, I shall return here again for sure. I'd order at the counter on the 1st floor, & head up the stairs to the 2nd floor to chill my morning/afternoon away. While there aren't many seats in this small space, the floor-to-ceiling windows let in great ambient light to brighten the premises - although unfortunately there isn't much of a view, looking out towards Clementi Road & the neighbouring overpass.

There even is an easel for kids (& adults, I suppose) to draw on & express their artistic talents. But I'm happy to just sit in a corner, using their free WiFi & listening to their chill music playlist playing softly in the background.

But for now, everyone stay safe & healthy... We'll get through this crazy month together.

I'm honestly so glad to have had this unexpected discovery that The M Plot serves more than just macarons! They have cool 1-for-1 macaron deals on Burpple Beyond, & also are sometimes referred to as "The M Plot Macarons" in full, hence my confusion.

I bought some croissants home for my family - a sweet & savoury one. The Stego ($4.50 nett) is a roasted almond x almond paste variant, & the Mammoth ($4.90 nett) a pork floss one.

IMHO these are priced quite steep, but with Shopback GO's 35% cashback, that eased the pain a little. I bought these as gifts, so I didn't get to try them... But here are some pictures.

For my brunch main, I ordered the Organic Eggs Benedict ($18.00 nett), which is served on a single artisan sourdough bread. The 2 eggs were poached to perfection; as I cut into them, the yolks burst open with gusto onto the sautéed spinach & grilled ham underneath.

The grilled ham was unfortunately way too salty for me, coupled with the already-tangy Hollandaise sauce, I felt the flavours were very overpowering. If the saltiness could be tweaked a little, I think this would be a stellar dish. The sourdough bread was easy to cut into, without a struggle - which I appreciate.

The interior decor here is bare & minimalist; the floor-to-ceiling windows that face the main road (Dunearn Road) let a lot of light in, which makes the space bright & welcoming.

It wasn't crowded on a Saturday afternoon when I visited, & a nice chill playlist plays softly in the background while customers chit chat or do work. There is a study area of 8 small tables on one side, & the remaining other tables have "No Studying" signs next to them.

Parking is free (though limited) at Sime Darby Centre on weekends - the parking lot is on level 2 right outside Cold Storage. But if you're taking transport, Kong Cafe is right next to King Albert Park MRT.

Their menu is plastered all over their walls near the cashier, & I took some time to read through them. Eventually, I ordered the Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough Toast, which unfortunately is not available on its own. It's mandatory to order an add-on, which I think is quite a shame because I didn't actually want any of them - Hummus, Sausage, Homemade Chutney, Bacon.

I decided on the sausage in the end, making my Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough Toast with Sausage $13.50 nett.

This was served very quickly. It honestly doesn't look like much, but it tastes pretty good. The scrambled eggs are creamy & slightly runny, just the way I like them. I just admit that the sausage gives the dish saltiness in good proportion. The sliced sourdough bread was impressively toasted to perfection! Crust not too hard (still easy to bite into), & the soft part of the bread pillowy & fluffy.

I do hope they consider putting just Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough Toast on its own on the menu. I'd frequent this place more often if they did.

Discovered Kong Cafe while surfing Instagram - initially intruiged by their all-day happy hour promotion of 3 bottles of beer for $18.

I soon learnt that they also serve coffee, brunch & dinner fare so I decided to pay them a visit.a

I ordered a Portobello Sandwich & enjoyed it, which took me by surprise. The mushrooms were generous & juicy, with the cheese melted & still slightly oozy, being served hot. The lettuce & tomatoes inside were fresh & the bread was soft & really filled me up.

All sandwiches come with a side of chips, which were nice & crispy but a little salty. If these are regular store-bought chips from a bag, I doubt anything can be done about it, though. There is the option to change the chips to a salad, but that unfortunately costs additional.

I would order this again if I could get this at the 50% off that I had by booking with Eatigo.

Koda's Cafe's last day of operations at The Hillford is tomorrow, 15th Aug 2019. No regrets ordering my Portobello Sandwich as it was tasty. Would return here again if I could book with the same Eatigo discount.

I was going to say that this is, after all, at a convenient location for me (albeit many will beg to differ). But that might not be relevant to me anymore after they move.

Ordering a sandwich isn't something that I'd usually do, but nothing else on the menu really appealed to me. It might be just me... I usually like Burgers, but I wasn't feel any of them that day.

They have brunch items on the menu like Big Breakfast & French Toast, as well as Shepherd's Pies, too. Overall, I find the menu here on the pricey side, so I was glad to have the 50% #eatigosg discount.

All the best, Koda's Cafe, in your new adventures very soon!
