Crispy Hot Chicken: a juicy chicken thigh enclosed within a soft potato bun, accompanied with slaw and chili mayo. The spice and honey together is strongly reminiscent of Korean Fried Chicken, but it seems Mexican-inspired. Not that I care, it’s ultimately a heck of a chicken sandwich. And it’s big. Hot damn, cluckers.

Missed this from Atlas! The eggs could be creamier, although it’s still a worthy add on at $3 for such a thick portion, and maybe more sauce on the plate would have made the dish more wholesome. Strange that it was prepared so quickly, but it’s still good. Just not as good as how it used to be.

A comforting snack in a charming and relaxing space. This dish appears to be plain and average but the notes of pear and the texture of mayo accompanying the huge chunk of tamago makes it extra palatable. The side of banana chips was a really thoughtful complement, affirming the savoury-sweet balance.

It’s always a feast for the eyes at Pacamara. The eggs are tucked away beneath a layer of mentaiko hollandaise, making it a deceptively clean plate until you cut through this wall of smoked salmon. Boom. Wish the mentaiko flavour was stronger, but the plating makes up for it. This is also one of those rare instances where no one notices the avocado on the side.


With a full brunch menu to choose from early in the morning and a really nice interior to boot, the food just has to be great. Almost. This dish could be fantastic but the execution fell short. The crab meat was bland with the taste being masked with truffle oil and the amount of meat got lost in the thickness of the english muffin. Surprisingly, the soft shell crab on the side was a delightful morsel of umami. A larger amount of fresher crab meat and lemon zest would really seal the deal. Till then, I’ll look forward to trying other things on the extensive menu.

A spin on the classic, the comté cheese adds another dimension of flavour to the ensemble. It’s certainly worth a try but it’s hard to justify the price tag for something short of spectacular. Perhaps a spicier otah would go a long way.

I get a little mad when the food is bad.
