Amongst the 10 other cafes that opened up in the east within the past six months, @thebrewingground easily reigns as the spot that slings out the best food in my books. Looking straight at you @sebastiansjl @wc1993. They never disappoint.
Like this brunch favourite of mine: generous amounts of creamy burrata sitting on a bed of caramelized onions and toasted sourdough. Finished with some juicy tomatoes, pickles, balsamic for that zing and fragrant basil oil. Excellent option for vegetarians. On occasion, I’ll add up their maple bacon whenever I feel like having some meat.

Over the moon cause they obliged when our table requested for more of that delicious punchy spicy sauce which the salmon sashimi were tossed in. Also very generous with the mounts of Ikura; they added mouthfuls of saline goodness that balanced the fattiness of the fish with every pop. Extra soy sauce served on the side, excellent for folks who prefer an extra touch of savouriness to their food.

Another legitimate coffee house opens in the East. Hooray to that! This one even carries an array of sweets from @woodlandssd; think their fudgy Brownies, Blondies and Tea Cakes. Each of these will be priced at 5bucks a piece.
Housed in the heart of Katong/Joo Chiat, Homeground Coffee is currently in their soft launch phase and are only taking payment via tips.

4oz White | 4.5bucks
6oz White | 5.5bucks

Here’s something new from Burpple we’ve all been excited for, for awhile and can finally share with everyone! It’s two, for the price of one!

Lunch at The Coffee Academics [TCA] was a tasty affair digging into Bonito-flake-ridden Spicy Umami Pasta (21bucks) and massive Angus Beef Cheesy Burger (26bucks). Most of my folks/friends have always known The Coffee Academics to be the coffee shop with well decorated high ceilings and comfortable-zen ambience but their slightly overpriced menu keeps them from making return trips to this posh cafe. With the soon to launch #burpplebeyond program, you’ll be able to enjoy 1-for-1 deals islandwide, like our 1-for-1 Main Course deal at TCA. So yes! That’s 26bucks for both Mains reflected in image above.

Burpple Beyond will take flight from Tuesday, 3rd July with more than 100 participating dining outlets. Go on ahead, download the app and stay tuned for more updates and meal-worthy deals.

Quite possibly one of the best hand laminated Croissants around. Let them layers speak for itself!

Springy Pandan hotcake, slightly crispy on the edges, served with a luminous green Pandan Coconut Gelato, Sticky Gula Melaka sauce, knobs of Coconut Ricotta Cream and specks of Desiccated Coconut. Every mouthful capturing the essence of the traditional Malay Kueh its named after.
Thankyou Prashant for graciously hosting us and Burpple for the invitation x

The #Jhubby @jonathanleewe's go-to sandwich whenever we make a trip here.
A good ole toasted Reuben with slices of Corned Beef, crunchy Sauerkraut and rich nutty Gruyere.

Fluffy Earl Grey Pancakes drizzled with a smooth Nutella sauce, Macadamia crumble and a lightly poached pear to top off the sweet stack.

New offering at my favourite Hongkong cafe in town. Silky smooth curd was cold and inviting but lacked soy flavour. Felt more like a milk tart with a sweet pastry shell. Stick to their signature egg tarts if you're here!

Bouncy oversized Tiger Prawns and seared Scallops (not complaining!) on my Garlic and Chilli Aglio Olio, they've also incorporated an extra touch of savoriness with a dash of soy sauce. My lunch companions also enjoyed the crusty Reuben Sandwich (featured in the background; 14bucks) very much.
Punch is definitely fast reigning as one of my favourite frequents in town.

When you need cheesey goodness and a great view to the rescue. Cafe bene's Garlic thick toast drizzled in honey, with a layer of grilled Parmesan and finally doused in cheese sauce. The most wonderful afternoons are made of this, my trusty Sweet Potato Latte and a deck view of the sea.
