Finally jumped on the bandwagon of Eggslut and I was very lucky to be there on a Thursday afternoon when there was no queue😎

The Fairfax Sandwich ($12 + $3 for bacon) comes with scrabbled eggs, bacon, chives, caramelised onions, cheddar cheese and sriracha mayo in a warm brioche bun. The brioche bun is super soft and fluffy and it goes really well with the creamy scrambled eggs that is overflowing from the sandwich.

The sandwich is packed with lots of flavour and it’s really delicious. The bacon is a tad salty - might try adding beef patty instead next time. All in all, Eggslut definitely lived up to its hype for me!

We ordered Truffle Tater Tots ($13) to share - the bite-size hash browns are drizzled in white truffle oil with a generous sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano cheese and chives. The crispy hash browns are delicious and aromatic - can’t stop once you start on this.

Had a lovely Christmas brunch at The Glasshouse🎄! We ordered Hummus Sharing Platter ($24) and it came with a luxurious spread of house-made hummus, roasted eggplant, peppers, charred cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, olives and pomegranates drizzled in olive oil and za’atar herbs. The sweetness of the roasted vegetables complements the nutty hummus and they go really well with the toasted sourdough bread - so good😍!

The Crisp Skin Norwegian Salmon ($19.90) came with 2 sides of my choice. The salmon is served medium and is crispy and juicy at the same time. The sautéed mushrooms (+$2) and brussels sprouts glazed in butter with bacon bits are delicious as well.

For starters, we had Burrata N’ Tomatoes ($14). The burrata cheese is light and smooth - a perfect match with the cherry tomatoes and cranberries drizzled in balsamic dressing. This is unexpectedly refreshing.

We ordered the Weekday 2-Course Set Lunch ($15.90++) which comes with an appetiser and main of our choice. For appetiser, we had Pomegranate Feta Salad, which features a refreshing mix of baby greens, walnuts, olives, feta cheese and honey dressing. For main, the Crispy Seared Barramundi comes with a perfectly crisp skin and moist fish beneath, served with balsamic dressing, potato mousse and mango tomato salsa. There is no over the top seasoning here and the freshness of the fish really came through this dish.

This is my first time having cheese wheel pasta and it is absolutely delicious🧀 The Hokkaido Scallop & Prawn Fettuccine ($38) is cooked in an aromatic truffle cream sauce and tossed and twirled in a large Grana Padano cheese wheel before it is plated and served with a toasted bread drizzled in truffle oil and topped with cheese shavings. At first, I was a little worried that this will be too heavy for my liking but the sauce is savoury enough to carry the creaminess and the fragrance of the truffle is on point. The scallops and prawns are fresh and succulent and they definitely add to the umami of this dish. What a flavour bomb!

For mains, I had Duck Confit ($19.90) and I like that it is served with wok-hei infused horfun, mushrooms, a sprinkle of salted egg yolk and a drizzle of plum vinaigrette instead of the usual mash potatoes. The duck skin is fragrant and crisp and the meat is well seasoned and moist.

We tried the Christmas special starter: Pork and Foie Gras Pithivier ($20.90). The perfectly-baked pastry is stuffed with pork belly, foie gras and chestnut, and served with apple slices, cranberries drizzled in balsamic vinegar. This reminds me of a zinged up 叉烧酥 - the pastry is crisp and flaky and the filling is moist, smokey and flavourful.

Purple Cabbage ($16.90) sounds pretty ordinary but it is anything but that. The cabbage is very soft and it goes very well with the scallop paste, ikura, prawn head butter and dashi beurre blanc (butter sauce) drizzled in green oil. Easily the most luxurious cabbage I ever had!

The signature C&C&C&C Pasta ($16.90 for starter, $23.90 for main) features cold angel hair pasta covered in a generous portion of crabmeat, chorizo, caviar and confit lemon, drenched in a rich lobster sauce. This is packed with so much freshness, texture and umami - so glad we ordered the main portion to share as a starter!

The Crispy Pork Belly Burger ($8.50) comes with a generous portion of crispy pork belly. The skin has a lovely crackle, the pork is moist and flavourful and it goes well with the English mustard and hoisin sauce. Super impressed with this!
