Big Brekky ($17)
.
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.

Crispy Fish Fingers ($12)
.
Nothing like chilling in a nicely decked-out cafe tucked away in the quiet neighbourhood of sembawang hills on a long weekend. Excellent ambience and great food, our orders really wowed us. This crispy fish fingers is made from snapper fillet, each coated with a crusty and crispy exterior, the way I love my fried fish done. Dunk it generously in that tartar sauce for that’s what sinful pleasures is all about. Also, for $12, there’s plentiful to go around so thats a major plus for me!

“The Epic” Beef Gyudon with Foie Gras ($25)
.
This may seem pricey but with a generous portion of fine sliced rib-eye topped with truffle hon shimeiji mushrooms, an onsen tamago and a thick slab of pan-seared foie gras, the bowl is seriously satisfying. Consider sharing this as the portion is large enough for 2 to share and derive sufficient satisfaction whilst still trying other dishes on the menu.

Fab Fry Up ($25)
.
Time for some hearty breakfast from @thefabulousbakerboy with 2 eggs done just the way you want it, roasted potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, sausages, caramelized onions, grilled potatoes, baked beans, sour dough toast and turkey bacon. Sorry turkey but bacon ain’t bacon when it’s turkey 😂. Still makes for a wow breakfast though

Iced Praline Mocha ($7)

Keep calm and drink Mocha with this version @therefinerysg. So thick and subtly sweet, watching warm milk flow onto that gianl iceball of mocha has its satisfaction. Great choice for the crazily warm weather these days.

Duck Confit ($16)
.
Woot! New cafe alert! The menu while not extensive, has many eye-catching dishes like this neatly frenched duck confit served with a red wine poached pear and red wine sauce. The duck leg is done well with a light crispy exterior and a delicious bite from the fatty skin. There is also a bed of smooth velvety mash soaking up all that juices from the duck leg making it a superb accompaniment. The poached pear was good though the wine flavour was not exactly strong. Overall, a great dish for the price point!

Summer Chicken Stew ($14.50)
.
One very large and juicy herb roasted chicken leg sitting in a sundried tomato broth accompanied with potatoes and carrots served with 2 slices of toasted sourdough makes for a really hearty meal that’s not overly filling. The broth had a nice tangy flavour with a tinge of heat and after I was done polishing up the bowl, not a drop was left behind. Yummylicious! While dining @lunarcoffeebrewers , a cup of their cold tea macchiato is strongly recommended!

Iced Chocolate ($7)
.
Nothing like chilling and having an iced cold drink in this terribly warm weather. @punch.gram located along North Canal Road has a very nicely decorated interior with a swanky courtyard for people who don’t mind the heat. The menu is kept simple but the fruity slushies I had my eye on were sold out by 1.30pm! This iced chocolate whilst tasting chocolatey, had a rather sandy texture at the base even after incessant stirring.

Luncheon Fries ($7)
.
Never say no to spam fries and this one by @Oberstrassesg is hard to pass up on at just $7. Overall, decent but maybe it would be better if the spam was coated with a layer of flour before being deepfried. Also loved the accompanying aioli.

Chilli Crab Pasta ($14.90)
.
Penne coated with thick homemade crab bisque served with crab meat, cherry tomatoes and tobiko. This pasta surprisingly packed a decent amount of heat. There were also a few pieces of croutons (probably to mimic fried mantou?) which was an interesting first for me. The penne did a good job of filling itself full of that crab gravy. At this price-point, this would be one of my must-order recommendations!

Farmer’s Rosti ($14.50)
.
Not many places I know in SG serves up rosti besides Marche and really delighter to have tried @Oberstrassesg which specializes in Rosti. The Farmer’s Rosti was housemade, crispy on the outer layer with a nice golden brown and moist inside and served with a light sour cream. The 2 sunny side up topped on the Rosti was a nice inclusion as the soft yolk added that umami punch to the rosti. Also loved that jumbo and super juicy veal bratwurst which was enough to go around with every mouthful of rosti. Starting my day off here really made me happy! Also to note is that everything on the menu is at wallet friendly prices!
