Nasi Lemak Set for 2 ($28)
.
Been years since my last visit to @sinpopobrand but my decision on what to order remained the same. Craving that luncheon meat crisps and the abundance of side dishes that came with the nasi lemak set, ordering this was a no-brainer. The set came with rojak, curry potatoes, sambal fishballs, luncheon meat crisps, marinated pork belly and har cheong chicken. Har cheong chicken here is one of the best I’ve had. Fragrantly pungent, plump and juicy with a fluffy light crispy crust. Luncheon meat crisps is such an addictive snack to munch on and the marinated pork belly portion was just so generous. Oh did I also mention the rice served with a soft centered egg? The rice is free flow and reminded me of the rice from nasi lemak packets wrapped jn banana leaf except this was served warm.

Pandan Pancakes
.
Pandan pancakes with a scoop of coconut ice cream drizzled with a generous dose of gula melaka syrup @tolidosnook . Nothing like starting the week long break on a sweet note! Everything was on point though it was a tad sweet for my liking.

The Tiramisu was to-die-for. Super luxe and indulgent cream in between layers of coffee infused sponge. The cup looked fairly large but we polished it quickly. Part of a 3 course lunch set made even more affordable with the burpplebeyond deal.

Roasted Shrimps ($14),

Shrimps were super fresh and the gravy was so flavourful that we just had to order a basket of sourdough bread($4) to mop it up.

Big Breakfast ($19.80)
.
Weekends be like this @thegardenslug . I should thank my baby @taro.the.dachshund for having diarrhoea 😂 since a trip to the vet also net me such an appetizing breakfast? This platter is just everything i want. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomato, 3 sausages, hashbrowns and 2 slices of bread. Also in picture is the tomyum pasta vongole ($19.50) that was so appetizing with its pasta noodles coated with a zesty and tangy sauce and a generous serving of white clams.

Meatball Pasta
.
Looking at this meatball pasta from @freetherobot.sg is just making me crave for the weekend so badly. Al dente pasta served with 5 giant meatballs that are juicy and delicious. Couldn’t ask for any improvements to this!

Almond Croissant ($4)
.
Sweet way to begin the Sunday @cshhcoffee ! Warmed up upon order , less of a puff pastry texture inside and more cakey and topped with chopped almonds and icing sugar. Pairs well with their camomile mint tea($6).

Flat white from @hinoki_sg now located @habitat_sg with a robust roasty flavour. Pleasant way to be chilling on Deepavali!

462 Laksa Prawn Pasta ($17)
.
Laksa Prawn Pasta @Tolidosnook not quite the way I remembered it to be but loving this wetter version just as much. I would describe this as laksa with the noodles replaced by spaghetti but missing some cockles and taupok. Well executed, slurp-worthy lemak gravy and a generous portion overall. Dining here just got better with the new #burpplebeyond ‘s 1-for-1 deal. We ended up opting for the NZ Striploin Roast Beef Sandwich ($17) for our other free main. Super worth it brunch overall.

Berry Matcha Lava Cake ($15)
.
Presentation on point, flavour checked, a matcha cake flowing with matcha lava served with berry compote to cut through the sweetness makes this dessert one of the best options to end of brunch @thuscoffeesg . I was totally smitten with the very instagrammable interior of the space and even more allured by the food selection offered.

Weekend big brekky @freetherobot to start the weekend right! In love with everything on this plate, especially the soft toasted brioche and the fluffy scrambled eggs. An absolute choice for big breakfast eaters

Salted Egg Chicken Burger ($16.90)
.
Tucked away in a rather quiet part of amk is @theworkbenchbistro which was surprisingly crowded probably due to the mouthwatering items they have available on the menu. They are famed for their salted egg items and just a look at the golden lava drenching that piece of fried chicken was enough to get me hooked! I also loved the pillowy bun served with the chicken. The fries did fall short as I think they just weren’t salted enough.
