I love seeing more gluten free options popping up all over SG!! These buckwheat galettes were so tasty and crispy and go really well with their savoury toppings. I only wish you could also order their dessert crepes with the buckwheat batter too! Just to make the whole menu more gluten intolerant friendly.

Supposedly this is the Malaysian version which is on the spicier side, but to be honest I didn't notice much difference!!! It was very good thought and I loved the amount of egg given. The whole mini food court is not bad but feels a bit like a bougie food court...

Waffles definitely were reminiscent of churros in smell but not in taste which was fine, as they are usually deep fried and that was not the taste we wanted. The lemonade was delightful and did not have a bandung taste from the rose, which with the lemonade would have been strange. And the foam with the tea was delightful!!!! Lovely place to eat and work in!!

The gula melaka infused espresso shot enhances the tasty pandan coconut milk drink just a tiny bit, but even without the coffee it still tastes really good. It basically an expensive dairy free pandan milkshake. Still glad I tried it though!

I rarely drink black coffee and when I do it's a coldbrew with some kind of cream. This coffee though NEEDS to be had black. IT DOESN'T EVEN TASTE LIKE COFFEE!!!! I was told by the barista that it would taste silky and like a lemon tea and he was 10000% correct. AMAZING.

You know the falafel and pita are gonna be legit when the Israeli guy kindly shouts in your face to eat a the free falafel he just handed you. 😂 Pretty sure this sandwich had about 6 falafels in it which is AWESOME and I definitely prefer 6 small than 3 big - which some places do. Would have preferred less of the pickle though but that's just me.

Came upon this place while looking to have lunch with some vegan friends and was surprised with how good it was! I had the brinjal and lady fingers, vegetable and tofu nonya curry, and the lion's mane mushroom rendang. The rendang was a bit on the sweet side but the mushroom behaved so much like beef rendang!!!! Great value for vegans ans vegetarians in central!!

The amazing part here is how the rice tastes just like legit chicken rice AND the beancurd skin manages to taste like the real thing too!!! We ordered 2 portions so I think the single portion would be quite small unless you ordered something else on the side.

Worth the hype!!! The soup was not as thick as 328 Katong Laksa but just as good. I appreciated that there were no cockles and the inclusion of tender chicken was much appreciated. Wish there were more tau pok though.. :C

The bread is very seeded, which I am not a huge fan of. The avocado wasn't super ripe and soft but it wasn't hard either as I have experienced at other places - I think it's because they're so keen to serve avocados they don't seem to care too much if they're nice to eat or not... The eggs were a bit too soft/had very runny whites which I am also personally not a fan of. Overall not a great meal but not horrible either.

I've been here before and have enjoyed their eggs but this time was disappointing. The eggs were far too runny for a poached egg. The toast and avocado were fine though. Regardless this place is great for working with a laptop at - provided you get access to the power point. I haven't tried their other food as their sandwiches are pre prepared so I can't have them without pork.

I have high standards for bagels. Luckily these bagels reach it. The only downside is that the bagels are served hot regardless of your filling. So with my smoked salmon and cream cheese the bagel was hot and so it tasted a bit weird with the cold fillings. The lemonade was really tart and exactly what I expect for a lemonade!
