Thanks JZ for introducing me this pretty lil cafe which is few months old at Bukit Timah with books available to chill while sipping on your coffee and looking out of their huge glass windows, sounds perfect right? ๐Ÿค— This is what I just did earlier today, with their milky B&B pudding and a hot cup of latte ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

๐Ÿ˜‹ Their sister branch, @thecitrusbistro at Sengkang which is also located right inside the swimming complex. Talk about dining โ€œby the poolโ€ ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿ” Shiok Burger ($12.90, served with Cajun fries) โ€” Savour the crispy deep fried chicken thigh, sliced tomato, crisp lettuce and sunny side up egg, topped with spicy chilli crab sauce on toasted sesame seed bun. You canโ€™t finish it in one bite though ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ– Cajun Lamb Rackโญ๏ธ ($21.90) โ€” Pan-fried lamb was meaty and firm. Flavour wise, it was indeed substantial combined with the softness and juiciness of the lamb meat, topped with homemade brown sauce. ๐ŸŸ Catch of The Day ($16.90) โ€” Pan-seared salmon was fresh and served with seasonal vegetables, mashed potato and their newly invented cream sauce. ๐Ÿ Tom Yum Seafood Pastaโญ๏ธ ($13.90) โ€” Our favourite of the day!! Pasta was al-dente and soaked in their signature tom yum broth which was savoury and spicy ๐Ÿ˜‹

Thanks to @citrusbythepool for having me and Dawn for hosting us!! Anyway, did I mention that their serving portion is extremely generous, so itโ€™s definitely worth the moolah! ๐Ÿคฉ

๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿ Spicy Marinara Spaghetti ($17.90) โ€” Topped with a decent amount of seafood, do not be fooled by its color as it can be quite spicy which is the differentiating factor from other pastas ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
๐Ÿ” NEW: Lava CheeseBurger ($14.50) โ€” Really interesting dish, literally lava cheese because it was injected with a syringe of hot cheesy sauce melting into your burger!! Beef was also done perfectly and not too dry ๐Ÿ˜‹
๐Ÿ– Tender Baby Ribs ($19.90) โ€” Must try from the menu! Tender marinated ribs which was really easy to eat from its bones. However, BBQ sauce didnโ€™t really bring out the flavour for us, so it is highly recommended to get other sauces if possible โ˜บ๏ธ

Once again, thank you @tobys_the_dessert_asylum for the invite and for the friendly and accomodating hospitality of their supervisor! We really enjoyed our dining experience in Tobyโ€™s and left with a satisfied tummy, and will be back soon ๐Ÿฅฐ

The ambience here was exactly like a bakehouse, decorated perfectly for a cozy dinner โ˜บ๏ธ

All of us thought that the 4 spice Chicken liver pate ($12) was really something unique, great for sharing with 2 person.
The second best dish was the blue mussel and grilled prawn saffron-fennel risotto. Seafood was fresh and had the exotic flavors that we were looking for ๐Ÿ˜‹
For some reason, the Beef Ragu pasta took them so long, around ~30mins, which was even longer than the fish, chicken and seafood risotto โ˜น๏ธ Expected damage: ~$12-$23

Sundayโ€™s brunch was ๐Ÿ’ฏ esp with great coffee, food, service and company!! ๐Ÿค—
.

๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿ Beef Ragu ($19) โ€” This pasta topped with beef shin and cheese was well seasoned and had an al dente texture. Extremely generous serving too!! ๐Ÿ˜‹
๐Ÿž๐Ÿฃ Poached Eggs Salmon ($16) & ๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸฃSkinny Eggs Ben ($17) โ€” In general, their extensive eggs breakfast menu is a must try!! The smoked salmon in both of our dishes was flavorful and filling too ๐Ÿ˜€
Besides their beautiful poached egg, Skinny Eggs Ben had avocado smash which was not bland but well seasoned, to our surprise.

๐Ÿ– Breakfast Steak ($24) โ€” Unanimous agreement that this was the best dish. Beef was juicy and generous, couldnโ€™t conpile
๐Ÿง€ Mentaiko Mac & Cheese ($20.50) โ€” Second best dish that weโ€™ve ordered! Wasnโ€™t as jelat as we thought and we had best of both worlds, mentaiko and cheese ๐Ÿ˜‹
๐Ÿฆ€ Crab Benedict ($21) โ€” Before I forget, gotta give credit to their eggs, most of the eggs were cooked to perfection!! Topped off with soft shell meat and crabmeat everywhere, perfect!
๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅ‘Strawberry Avocado ($18) โ€” Creative dish if you are someone that likes to try something new, but slightly on the pricey side!
๐Ÿ— Chicken Rosti ($16.50) โ€” Chicken was bland and was one of the worse dish we had, we would have preferred if its taste wasnโ€™t as dull as it looks โ˜บ๏ธ Cafe Ambience: 4.5/5

Expected Damage: $22 (exclusive of GST, no service charge)
