TLDR: the more I had the ๐™‹๐™ช๐™ข๐™ฅ๐™ ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™š (~$16) the less I liked it. The Balsamic reduction, drizzled on one of the softest sourdough Iโ€™ve ever had, was brilliant. ๐Ÿคฉ
-
Now for the bad: with a lack of a meatier, saltier component, the mildy carby pumpkin on bread duo lacked any complexity. A blob of whipped goats ricotta didnโ€™t balance the dish at all, instead further accentuating its awkwardness. ๐Ÿž๐Ÿง€
-
Perhaps a saltier cheese wouldโ€™ve fared better. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you donโ€™t think about the fact that this is essentially a sandwich you could make at home yourself, the ๐˜พ๐™๐™š๐™š๐™ ๐™ฎ ๐˜ฝ๐™š๐™š๐™› (~$17) is quite decent. Taste wise, of course. The pulled beef held a slight sweetness to nullify the cheesiness, and I actually liked the bread crust (shocker! I usually hate the crust)
-
But all good things come to an end, as I found the Jaffles getting too dry as I continued eating. The poached egg (which was more ramen egg than poached) did little to save that.

If you thought your studying content is dry, the ๐˜ฝ๐™š๐™š๐™› ๐™Ž๐™๐™ค๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ž๐™—๐™จ ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™˜๐™ (~$16) is drier. I have no idea how a sandwich can be dry even with melted cheese, but youโ€™d be surprised.

Admittedly, I do love me a good grilled cheese and tomato soup combo. Punchโ€™s ๐™‚๐™ง๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก๐™š๐™™ ๐˜พ๐™๐™š๐™š๐™จ๐™š (~$11) was good, but it just didnโ€™t hit the spot.
-
The tomato soup had a thick consistency, yet lacked that tangy tomato kick I was searching for, tasting more of a โ€˜pasta sauceโ€™ than a tomato soup. ๐Ÿ…
-
The grilled cheese could do with being more grilled and toasted, since this had loads of potential to be comparable to the grilled cheese I had from ps cafe.

I was kinda indifferent about the ๐™๐™–๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™š๐™ง๐™จ ๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™š๐™–๐™  ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™˜๐™ (~$17) though. The flavours were no doubt there. Great portions and aroma, proper contrast with the caramelised onions and capsicum, but probably not a good takeaway itemโ€” the multigrain bread soaked up all the teriyaki. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

I mean, you canโ€™t really screw up ๐™ˆ๐™ช๐™จ๐™๐™ง๐™ค๐™ค๐™ข & ๐™Š๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™๐™ค๐™–๐™จ๐™ฉ (~$4.50), right?
To be honest, there was nothing particularly wow about this. The toast was crispy and thicc, but definitely too carb-y since the ingredients were inadequate. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
-
Caramelised onions were extremely muted taste wise especially under all that melted cheese, and I had to separate the ingredients to taste each one. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
-
Sure, they arenโ€™t charging $10 for this, (literally every bakery Iโ€™m looking at you) but they have better items, skip this.

Cheese for DAYS. Thatโ€™s exactly what Korioโ€™s take on the ๐™‚๐™ง๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก๐™š๐™™ ๐˜พ๐™๐™š๐™š๐™จ๐™š ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™˜๐™ (~$9) is. Melted cheese was stretchy and gooey, perfect for those of yโ€™all who are dreamy of that โ€˜cheese pullโ€™. ๐Ÿง€
-
Perhaps they went slightly overboard on the cheese, because the onions were somewhat scarce. I wouldโ€™ve liked a more obvious sweet piercing onion flavour to counteract the dense cheesiness.
-
The bread crust was HEAVENLY. And this is coming from someone who usually ditches bread crust. All round crunchy at the edges, the slightly burnt crust was superb. -
Iโ€™m still with Ps cafeโ€™s grilled cheese โ€” but korio is definitely a worthy competitor.

Was skeptical trying the ๐™ƒ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™š๐™ฎ ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™จ๐™˜๐™–๐™ง๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™š ๐™๐™ค๐™–๐™จ๐™ฉ (~$14), bc frankly, its pricey for toast, and how can everyone like it?
.
But oh BOY. The mascarpone๐Ÿฅฐ. Smoother than ricotta, fluffier and lighter than cream cheese, the mascarpone met its sweeter match in the form of honey. Spread out generously on the famous sourdough, and you got yourself the perfect brunch toast ๐Ÿž
.
The honey, though clearly visible, wasnโ€™t that obvious. Some parts were inbalanced and drowned out by the mascarpone.

You know itโ€™s good when you still think about the ๐™ƒ๐™ค๐™ช๐™จ๐™š ๐™๐™ž๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™– ๐™๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™š (~$12) hours after eating it ๐Ÿคค Homemade Ricotta was SO SMOOTH and creamy, and the sweeter dried baby tomatoes contrasted the dense ricotta amazingly ๐Ÿ… Also did I mention how generous they were with the ricotta? It was probably as thick as the toast itself ๐Ÿž Save yourself the trouble of choosing from the menu and GET THIS! ๐Ÿ˜›

Been craving this Creamy Mushrooms on Sourdough (~$14) with Scrambled Eggs (+$3) for months ever since I saw it on someoneโ€™s instastory.... ๐Ÿ‘…
.
A generous portioned of creamed shimeji mushrooms were presented on top of soft sourdough, anD DAMN IT WAS GOOOD ๐Ÿ˜‹ Sourdough never got soggy throughout the meal despite the creamed mushrooms on top, and the sweet sundried tomatoโ€™s disrupted the creamy texture of the mushrooms and herb cream ๐Ÿ…
.
Scrambled eggs were fluffy though slightly overcooked at the bottom, but hEY I would willingly pay $17 for this anyday ๐Ÿ˜›

Berry Yoghurt Toast (~$10) was not only visually pleasing but also pleasing to my tummy ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Different types/degrees of sweetness from the berries/yoghurt and honey worked well with together with the difference in their textures ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฏ
.
Sourdough toast was lightly toasted, crispy on the sides and soooo soft and fLUFFy on the insides!! It doesnโ€™t look like a lot but trust me itโ€™s filling! ๐Ÿž
