The best paofan I’ve had til date. Ordered the $9.90 combo (seafood paofan + fried crispy fish rolls) and I’m so satisfied with it.

Couldn’t decide which paofan I wanted so I got the seafood paofan which contains a mixture of prawns, clams and fried fish. The prawns and clams were really fresh and sweet, but the fried fish was a bit on the tougher side. The winner is definitely the broth, I was so full that I left some rice behind but slurped up all the broth 😂 The fried crispy fish rolls were also good! It was fried to a crispy texture and the fish paste in it was flavourful on its own. They were also very generous with the mayonnaise. Will come back again!

Bought a cup of hot latte ($8) (with oatmilk +$1) and this is honestly a very expensive cup of 12 oz coffee. I tend to get migraine drinking caffeinated stuff but this was smooth, didn’t give me a migraine and it’s a taste I could accept without any sugar (I like to add a pack of sugar in my coffee). Have to say it’s pretty good compared to most coffee places but it’s slightly acidic towards the end of each sip. Worth trying but maybe not my to-go coffee place.

Went on a weekday, price of sunbed rental has increased to $30 and comes with 2 cups of coke/ sprite/ ILT. Ambience was great and service was wonderful; staff was very attentive.

Ordered the Coastes Breakfast ($23) consisting of grilled pork sausage, thick cut bacon, sauté mushrooms, spinach, roasted tomatoes, creamy scrambled eggs, toasted sourdough bread and complimentary tea/ coffee (I had Iced Latte which was pretty good). Absolutely loved the dish, specifically the roasted tomatoes and creamy scrambled eggs!

Also had the Rösti With Smoked Salmon And Scrambled Eggs ($18); the eggs originally offered were poached eggs but my companion doesn’t eat poached eggs so we informed the cashier and made the order and payment online. Rosti was really crispy but shredded really thinly. On the good side, it didn’t get soft despite being topped with smoked salmon and eggs. Flavour was just nice as well. Smoked salmon was a really generous portion but made the dish really salty, we we paired it with the toast from our Coastes Breakfast.

The Breakfast Sammy (containing crispy spam, chives, American cheese and a generous heap of egg served in brioche) was their signature sandwich and every bite was truly an indulgence; no doubt I would recommend this to anyone who has yet to try Korio.

Also ordered their Grilled Cheese sandwich (containing cheddar, American cheese and caramelised onions in whole wheat sourdough) and despite being a huge fan of cheese, I feel that this sandwich can be missed out on. Had Oat milk Latte ($6) here as well which was average.

Honestly would come back for their sammies but the biggest con is probably how it’s more of a take-out kiosk and there’s only enough seat in the shop for 1. The staff told us we could sit at Teh Tarik Express but we were ‘chased’ by them twice, so wouldn’t recommend to sit there.

Presentation was great so I had high expectations for it, but this dish is too jelat for one person to finish. Crab cake was really oily and the hollandaise sauce was not up to standard (in my opinion).
