We enjoyed the Roast Chicken with Quinoa ($16.90) which was succulent, tender and skin was crisp. Served with healthier option of quinoa but pretty darn tasty so G suspected chicken broth was used as it did taste like chicken rice😛

Also got the salmon mentai Don ($16.90), pretty generous with the creamy mentaiko sauce, tobiko, salmon cubes and comes with wakame (will probably ask for less rice next time). For those working in the CBD, @lecoqsg is a great place to dine at for a reasonably priced lunch/ dinner and even more so if you have #BurppleBeyond!

First time to the super old school @heapsengleong and the toasts + drinks are still kept at an affordable price at less than $4 for 2 drinks and a toast!

The golden brown kaya toast which was crisp and fluffy, with a slab of butter and a layer of not-too-sweet hainanese kaya was fantastic and I liked the extra effort scraping to remove any burnt bits after toasting.

Also tried Kopi Gu You for the first time and guilt aside, I liked it - the aromatic kopi was pretty smooth!

@newubin is known for tzechar dishes with an innovative twist (Foie Gras Satay anyone?), but haven’t been here since my first time a few years back - and I was more surprised to see Fresh Kaya on Toasted Baguette ($5) on the menu.

Served as a deconstructed kaya toast, the nicely toasted baguettes were crisp, not too charred with a nice smokiness to it; fragrant homemade kaya which wasn’t tooooooo sweet and they were very, very generous with two slabs of creamy French butter so you can go crazy with the butter! I liked that it’s unsalted, and salt is served on the side so you can have your toast the way you like it.

I have a weakness for toasts so I’ll definitely order this again the next time I’m here 😛 The other desserts definitely sounds interesting too, but there were only two of us - one a non-durian water - and the non-durian ones are for sharing up to 4 pax.

Going at $6.30 ala carte and $7.30 to $9.60 depending on the drinks you pick, (& addition of lettuce for $0.6) - found it pricey, but that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it.

The bread was soft and perfectly toasted till crisp; the thin marinated pork loin had a good bite but was tender enough and the thick layer of fluffy egg along with a very light sweet sauce (mayo??) made for a perfect breakfast! Wished it was even cheesier but that’s just me😂

Not mine but I had a teeny bite of it. The housemade sunflower peanut butter was real tasty, and well complemented with the slightly tart shrub jam; but my sweet-tooth buddy personally found it too sour when paired with the country loaf.

My favorite would be the scone, not too dense and was very fragrant! Wished we had clotted cream and jam the English way😛. The banana bread was a little sweet and denser, so definitely good to share, while the Morning bun was fluffy, flaky, buttery, with a hint of cinnamon.

With a cup of coffee, this plate of three pastries set us back by about $19. Pretty pricey but I’ll definitely be back for the occasional splurge and try their sandwiches!

Sandwiches start at 11am so toast it was. Price was also quite posh (and portion is small) but it was so good! Picked the rosemary sourdough, toasted till crisp while still airy with just a slight tanginess, making it a good complement with the sweet honey and luscious mascarpone, topped with crushed walnuts, bee pollen & a dash of Black Sea salt. 😍

Soft and eggy, (deconstructed if you’d like a atas label to it😂) with butter and sweet kaya served on the side so you can have it however you want😌 Kopi here was quite fragrant too!

Sought refuge during the crazy opening and this was definitely a good place for a quick break (good cuppa + there’s wireless charging for devices ha)!

Wasn’t sure what to expect for this Heibihiam cream cheese toast - but I liked the combination of savoury heibihiam (it wasn’t spicy though) and mildly sweet cream cheese on a crisp sourdough toast! May not look like much but I surprisingly managed to survive on this and a happy cuppa till dinner time😂

Will definitely be back - the bakes and kuehs look good too!

Got a little greedy because everything looked so good! 😛

The breads here are generally pricier, but quality also seems better. The mentaiko baguette was chewy (probably have to toast it a little to make it slightly crisped), but less salty (also less flavorful) than my favourite ones from Donq/Johan but I don’t really mind them. The croissant was buttery, flaky and fluffy (the air pockets!!). I actually liked the apple danish which was flaky + the fillings were not cloyingly sweet, with a little tartness.

For those who are looking to try, it’s a good time now as they’re having an opening special till 20 June - 20% off most breads (save for the giant, award-winning loaves that costs $20-ish, those are going for 10% off). Will probably be back to try their Singapore-exclusives. Wouldn’t mind a little splurge for breakfast here once in awhile😬

Soft fluffy, filled with shredded coconut that wasn’t too sweet. These coconut buns from a traditional bakery right smack in an old estate were pretty good! Preferred these to the red bean which were much sweeter.

Finally got around to trying this. I love me a good traditional toast and I thought this $1.20 bread was pretty satisfying. Crisp, light, fluffy thick loaf with your usual suspects of butter and a thick layer of hainanese kaya, fragrant and not too sweet. I liked the kopi / yy here too!
