Char grilled satay burger [$9.90] Grilled soy patty topped with satay sauce, pineapples, sliced raw onion rings, lettuce, cucumbers encased within a fibre fuelled bun.

The satay sauce is thick with a slightly gritty texture, infused with exotic spices and herbs that came with a lingering spiciness. Flavourful and aromatic, a complementary pairing to the dense, compact and tender grilled soy patty. Along with a sweet, juicy pineapple that added a tangy flavour, the raw greens added a pleasant crunch factor as well .

Creamy shrooms burger [$8.90 ala carte, +$3.90 for set meal] Fresh lettuce, crispy deep fried soy patty topped with button mushrooms in a dairy-free cream sauce sandwiched between a fibre-fueled bun.

The soy patty had a crisp golden brown exterior with a tender, juicy interior that highly resembled the texture of real meat. Love the creamy carbonara-alike sauce that paired well with the chewy and juicy button mushrooms that came with a pleasant earthy note. The artisan buns were soft and fluffy, embedded with pumpkin seeds and nuts for that extra fibre. For every set meal ordered, you get to choose between broccoli or seaweed fries for the side and a cup of cooler to go along with. My cravings for fast food yet trying to indulge with less guilt made possible with veganburg's plant based burgers that are both healthy and yummy!πŸ˜‹

Praline coffee baller [$8.50++] Iced coffee with a twist!

A huge sphere of praline and espresso infused ball that allows to you to DIY your own iced praline latte with a side of warm steamed milk provided. Prepare for the feast to your sight as the coffee sphere slowly melts and dissolves upon contact with the warm milk! 😍Not usually a coffee drinker but one sip of it got me sold! Amidst the milky caffeine aroma, the subtle nutty flavour and aroma of praline slowly seeps through, a lingering and pleasant sensation to the palate. Though I would personally for the sweetness to be toned down slightly more for a more distinct coffee flavour .

Brute brownie with single scoop [$8.90] / premium flavour [+$0.70] // A nut-less brownie (YAY for me 😍) that's fudgy, dense and chocolatey, topped with a single scoop of ice cream flavour of your choice!

I chose the genmaicha flavour, which is only available for a limited time till end of July. In case you are wondering, genmaicha is a roasted brown rice Japanese green tea that differs greatly from matcha, with a lingering roasted flavour and aroma. Texture was smooth and creamy, with a distinctive earthy note and roasted flavour that had a subtle lingering aroma. However, the flavour seemed to subside gradually which depleted my enjoyment ... or perhaps it's the rich cocoa flavours of the brownie that overpowered it? πŸ€” Almost 80% of the ice cream flavours are premium here hence do expect more damage incurred to your pocket. Samples of ice cream are provided upon request but the portion provided was really meagre that I could barely taste the flavours 😞. Prices are pretty steep for a neighbourhood ice cream cafe but makes a great refreshing treat for yourself when the weather shows no mercy(if you are in the vicinity) .

Carbonara [$16+] Linguine in a creamy carbonara sauce served with bacon, mushrooms and topped with a raw yolk.

A classic, simple dish that's well executed with an al dente texture of noodles, tender and juicy bacon, chewy and earthy mushrooms as well as a creamy, flavourful sauce. Portion was also substantial and filling for one, though I highly recommend sharing as the thick creamy sauce might get a tad overwhelming after awhile. On a side note, service is welcoming, friendly and attentive but hopefully the staff can be more well-trained to assist in our enquiries on the dishes prior to order .

French toast [$18] Two thick slices of fried brioche sandwiching rhubarb berry marmalade, served along with assorted berries, poached pear, vanilla ice cream lying atop a bed of nuts (not almond flakes as stated in the menu).

Scoring high on the visuals, yet another looks better than it taste dish that failed to impress my sweet tooth. Though the brioche was soft and fluffy with a substantial spread of rhubarb berry marmalade, it was just a run-off-the mill that could have been easily duplicated in your home kitchen. Coupled with tangy and sour fresh berries (raspberry, blueberries, blackberry and strawberries) as well as soft, sweet poached pears, the vanilla ice cream was yet another mediocre addition - smooth, creamy and milky but lacking fragrance and dairy aroma. Perhaps this would be an enjoyable dish for those who fancy fruity desserts but personally I don't seem to find any wow factor apart from it's enticing and kaleidoscopic visuals. The croque madame fared much better in terms of palatability, IMO. .

Thunder tea brown rice [$4.50] One of the cheapest thunder tea rice with a generous and fulfilling portion.

The stall is located within the hawker centre at queen street (near the temple) which is pretty easy to spot with its prominent signage (swipe to the end). The thunder tea soup had a robust, pleasant earthy note that actually exceeded my expectations for a hawker stall. Atop the bed of brown rice (white rice is also available), an assortment of greens: cabbage, long beans, spinach, tofu cubes, turnips, ikan bilis, floss and peanuts (which I requested to be omitted). The different elements provided a crunchy, juicy mouthfeel to the grainy brown rice which also resulted in a flavourful outcome. Pair it with the hot thunder tea soup for a hearty, wholesome yet satisfying and guilt/free meal! A place I would highly recommend for thunder tea rice, given its pocket-friendly pricing and substantial portion. πŸ’š

Surf & Turf okonomoyaki [$12++] A thick pan fried omelette stuffed with bacon, shrimps, beansprout and topped with pork floss, chopped spring onions, along with mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce.

The thick fluffy omelette filled with tender bacon strips, fresh juicy shrimps and crunchy beansprouts (swipe once to view the interior; pardon the messy outlook thoughπŸ™ˆ) surprisingly exceeded my expectations, despite its simple outlook. Coupled with a pleasant savoury tinge of saltiness from the pork floss and Worcestershire sauce, the overall combination was impressive and satisfiying to the palate. Great for sharing as a side or suffice as a main if you are dining alone. .

Panko ebi with salted egg sauce [Complimentary for reservations made via @chopesg] 
Panko crusted prawns drizzled with salted egg sauce, I am sad to admit that this was unfortunately a letdown.

The salted egg sauce was barely present, just a few drops and specks that could have been deemed negligible. Deep fried to an ideal crisp and well battered golden brown exterior, encasing fresh juicy prawns, it was a run-off-the mill that's definitely not worth the original price of $10 ($5 for each strand 😨). PS: Promotion for this complimentary dish is valid till end July only with promo code "SFFTR" when making your reservations. . .

Croque madame [$18] 
Toasted brioche, ham, gruyere cheese, topped with fried egg.

Comprising of 3 slices of toast, each layer was filled slices of ham and gruyere cheese and topped off with a sunny side up. Simple yet delectable combination, a soft and fluffy brioche that's coated with a fragrant egg batter - just like French toast πŸ˜‹ Coupled with a savoury pleasant tinge of saltiness from the ham & melted gruyere cheese, the combination was simple yet delectable. The sunny side up was nicely moulded, with a fragile, soft and slightly runny yolk. A filling brunch that is satisfying if only the price was less steep...

Spicy crab pizza [$20+] A thin crusted pizza topped with spicy crab meat, cherry tomatoes and thick layer of melted mozzarella.

Garnished with parsley flakes, the crabmeat (REAL and not crabstick) were substantially present, fresh with a soft and delicate texture. A spicy kick follows after, a slight numbing sensation to the palate but flavourful and shiok πŸ’₯! The pizza crust was thin, crisp and biscuit-like, though unfortunately some edges were charred and burnt. The top layer of melted mozzarella was thick, gooey and cheesy - an essential element to spice things up! .

Volcano cookie lava set [$9.90] Free single scoop with every cookie lava set purchased, from now till 31st July thanks to @snatchsingapore !

✨ Newly launched to the menu is this volcano cookie- charcoal cookie with salted egg lava ✨. I had this paired with salted white egg caramel which was a winning combination for fans of salted egg (which I am one✌🏻). Drizzled with caramel and topped off with sea salt flakes, the charcoal cookie erupted with a burst of golden yellow pool upon contact with the cold sphere - swipe to view! 😻 A standard 10-15 min was worthwhile for this soft, chewy and sufficiently moist cookie with a substantial filling. The salted egg lava was creamy albeit slightly grainy with a distinctive flavour; a pleasant lingering subtle salty aftertaste that was certainly a satisfaction for hardcore salted egg fans! ✨ Why ζ΅ζ²™εŒ… when there's 桁沙 cookie πŸͺ? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹ The salted white egg caramel further enhanced the salted egg enjoyment with a luscious, milky and caramelised flavour that had a slight resemblance to salted egg- a milder and sweeter version. As for the complimentary scoop, I decided to opt for matcha (since earl grey was not available 😭). It was thick, creamy and milky with an earthy flavour that I would have preferred for it to be more distinct and less sweet (as a hardcore matchaholic). .
