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? πŸ€— This is what I just did earlier today, with their milky B&B pudding and a hot cup of latte πŸ™ŒπŸ»

πŸ˜‹ Their sister branch, @thecitrusbistro at Sengkang which is also located right inside the swimming complex. Talk about dining β€œby the pool” πŸ€—

πŸ” Shiok Burger ($12.90, served with Cajun fries) β€” 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 can’t finish it in one bite though πŸ˜‰ πŸ– Cajun Lamb Rack⭐️ ($21.90) β€” 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. 🐟 Catch of The Day ($16.90) β€” Pan-seared salmon was fresh and served with seasonal vegetables, mashed potato and their newly invented cream sauce. 🍝 Tom Yum Seafood Pasta⭐️ ($13.90) β€” Our favourite of the day!! Pasta was al-dente and soaked in their signature tom yum broth which was savoury and spicy πŸ˜‹
🍫 Molten Chocolate Lava Cake⭐️ ($10.90) β€” Must order here, every lava cake order is served freshly! 😍
πŸ₯›NEW: Mighty Milkshakes ($8.90 - $10.90) β€” Huge cups available in 6 flavours 😱: Classic Vanilla,

Thanks to @citrusbythepool for having me and Dawn for hosting us!! Anyway, did I mention that their serving portion is extremely generous, so it’s definitely worth the moolah! 🀩

🌢🍝 Spicy Marinara Spaghetti ($17.90) β€” 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 😬
πŸ” NEW: Lava CheeseBurger ($14.50) β€” 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 πŸ˜‹
πŸ– Tender Baby Ribs ($19.90) β€” Must try from the menu! Tender marinated ribs which was really easy to eat from its bones. However, BBQ sauce didn’t really bring out the flavour for us, so it is highly recommended to get other sauces if possible ☺️

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 Toby’s and left with a satisfied tummy, and will be back soon πŸ₯°

The ambience here was exactly like a bakehouse, decorated perfectly for a cozy dinner ☺️

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 πŸ˜‹
For some reason, the Beef Ragu pasta took them so long, around ~30mins, which was even longer than the fish, chicken and seafood risotto ☹️ Expected damage: ~$12-$23

Sunday’s brunch was πŸ’― esp with great coffee, food, service and company!! πŸ€—
.
.
πŸ₯©πŸ Beef Ragu ($19) β€” This pasta topped with beef shin and cheese was well seasoned and had an al dente texture. Extremely generous serving too!! πŸ˜‹
🍞🍣 Poached Eggs Salmon ($16) & πŸ₯‘πŸ£Skinny Eggs Ben ($17) β€” In general, their extensive eggs breakfast menu is a must try!! The smoked salmon in both of our dishes was flavorful and filling too πŸ˜€
Besides their beautiful poached egg, Skinny Eggs Ben had avocado smash which was not bland but well seasoned, to our surprise.

πŸ– Breakfast Steak ($24) β€” Unanimous agreement that this was the best dish. Beef was juicy and generous, couldn’t conpile
πŸ§€ Mentaiko Mac & Cheese ($20.50) β€” Second best dish that we’ve ordered! Wasn’t as jelat as we thought and we had best of both worlds, mentaiko and cheese πŸ˜‹
πŸ¦€ Crab Benedict ($21) β€” 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!
πŸ“πŸ₯‘Strawberry Avocado ($18) β€” Creative dish if you are someone that likes to try something new, but slightly on the pricey side!
πŸ— Chicken Rosti ($16.50) β€” Chicken was bland and was one of the worse dish we had, we would have preferred if its taste wasn’t as dull as it looks ☺️ Cafe Ambience: 4.5/5
Food Rating: 9/10
Expected Damage: $22 (exclusive of GST, no service charge)
