2 thick pancakes garnished with bits of pistachio, slightly saltish and really thick butterscotch sauce, fresh berries (Strawberries, Blueberries) and a side of maple syrup. A very lovely dish that was sweet and slightly tart. I think this paled in comparison to the bolder Candied Bacon & Grilled Cheese pancake. While I would have preferred more butterscotch sauce to balance the tartness of the fresh fruits, it is still a very enjoyable and definitely a lighter alternative to the other pancake option. Unfortunately, the pancakes here were similarly too dense and could have been fluffier.
Taste: 8/10

Not crispy, more chewy as well.
Very moist, buttery and sinfully delicious but again, nothing spectacular. The one I had at Starbucks previously was crispier.
Taste: 6/10

Not as crisp, chewy dense and hard. Almond notes could be stronger.
Overall, still delicious but nothing spectacular.
Taste: 6.5/10

Pulled Pork Benedict ($14)
Two poached eggs, Hollandaise, Pinto bean salad, Romaine salad, Peri-peri sauce, Hokkaido brioche
- Chilled Peri-peri sauce was slightly spicy, very refreshing, light and citrusy
- Well-seasoned and tender pulled pork
- Pinto bean salad had a hint of lemon juice added and provided earthy notes to the dish
Overall, the thick, buttery and fluffy brioche was the perfect vessel to soak up all the juices from the egg and the pulled pork. The bread was slathered with a layer of sweet chili sauce as well, tying together the savoury eggs and pulled pork.
Taste: 9/10 (Very satisfying breakfast)

Dirty Chai Latte ($6)
Thin consistency, aromatic, spicy kick at the back of your throat, cinnamon fragrance, with coffee that was not bitter.
Taste: 8.5/10

Cinnamon Bun ($3.50)
Bread was soft and moist on the inside though it is denser than normal, it is also more buttery than a typical piece of bread, similar to a croissant. A really sweet and thick coating of icing sugar on its exterior though it is definitely not as cloying as the thick gooey brown sugar glazed sticky cinnamon buns. While I like how the icing sugar provided sweet notes to the rich buttery bun, I think the bun could do without it. Perhaps a light cream cheese frosting instead? More cinnamon filling would also be appreciated
Taste: 7/10

'Grilled beef patty, Cheese, Fresh Lettuce, Tomatoes and animal-style sauce (Adapted from Sethlui's review at https://sethlui.com/revelry-cafe-singapore/#ixzz5xaXl51AS, it is a sauce made with a mixture of condiments, including mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, etc)'

The salad was dusted with a bit of black pepper, and vinaigrette. Consists of baby spinach, lettuce, almond flakes, cherry tomatoes. The salad, which is usually an afterthought at other food establishments, was quite delicious though I would have preferred more dressing.
The waffle was very airy and fluffy, consistently so throughout my visits to the cafe. Beneath the top piece, was a layer of melted cheese which helped to provide a subtle saltish and creamy contrast to the beef patty. Meanwhile, the beef patty provided was very thick, moist and juicy with lots of flavour. Though I would have liked more cheese as it can get overwhelmed by the bold flavours of the beef, it was definitely one of the better cheeseburgers I've eaten and not just another 'instagrammable' dish.
Taste: 8.5/10 (Should give this a try)

- Very buttery, crunchy on the outside but quite hard and slightly chewy (Thankfullly it was not as chewy as the ones at Brotherbird Milk & Croissants)
- Soft, pillowy and moist on the inside
I love how they offered to warm up my croissant while I was ordering. However, this croissant was excessively moist and buttery that it was slightly off-putting. It could also have been much lighter, airier and fluffier on the inside with a more crisp and toasted exterior.
Price: 8.5/10
Taste: 4/10 (Didn't like the croissant)
Overall: 5/10

Includes 10% service charge (if dining in)

From Wiki, Means small/thin leaf/layer; A shell-shaped filled Italian pastry native to Campania, sometimes called a lobster tail in English
- 'Fresh Italian Ricotta, Orange confit'
The exterior was very crunchy just like the curry puff I had moments earlier. Unlike the curry puff though, the pastry shell was thicker, slightly harder and less oily/greasy. The filling inside was absolutely amazing as it was loaded with light, subtly sweet, cheesy ricotta and citrusy sweet orange. The acidity of the orange confit helped to balance out the rich buttery and cheesy notes of the pastry shell and the ricotta respectively.
Taste: 9.5/10

Parmesan Scallion Scone ($5)
- Thick, moist inside, not too dense or buttery
- Very strong and unique flavour with hints of ham
Love how this scone taste and this was one of the fluffier scones I've had (Though it can definitely be more fluffy). Not sure if I will pay $5 for it though.
Price: 6/10
Taste: 9/10
Overall: 7/10

Carrot Cake ($5)
- Very moist and not too dense
- Icing sugar at the top provided more sweetness to the subtly sweet cake but I don't think it was needed, seems like its just for aesthetics
- Though I love the moisture in the cake, it could have been more fragrant
Pretty average piece of carrot cake
Price: 5/10
Taste: 5/10
Overall: 5/10

Chai Latte ($5)
Came dusted with cinnamon which I love. The Chai Latte was very aromatic with strong notes of cinnamon and ginger. Great accompaniment to the rich chocolate tart.
Taste: 8/10

(Part 1 of 2)
The Bread Board ($7)
- Assortment of signature breads (Rye, Country, Hokkaido White Bread), White Miso Hummus, Homemade Raspberry Jam, Butter (Heritage Salted Butter)
- Sourdough Rye: Crisp and very crunchy, Densest of the 3 breads and subtly sweet as well, very rustic bread
- Sourdough Country: Exterior had a slightly sweet glaze
- Hokkaido White bread: Most buttery, airy and light (Love this); Pairs very well with the raspberry jam and the acidic raspberries helps to cut through the rich bread
Some parts of the bread had a nice toasted caramelisation, increasing the complexity of flavours. Both the dips that came along with the bread were amazing and complemented the bread very well. The homemade raspberry jam was very thick, subtly sweet and tangy. The best raspberry jam I've tasted thus far. Meanwhile, the white miso hummus (Made with Miso, Chickpeas, Sesame, Olive oil) is earthy with a strong taste of chickpeas. The texture is expectedly a lot more grainy. Both spreads complemented each other and of course, the bread very well, elevating the dish significantly.
Price: 8/10 (Quite a significant portion was given for $7)
Taste: 9/10 (A simple yet highly delicious dish; Not 10 as I personally did not like some of the bread)
Overall: 9/10 (Must-try if you like bread)

Salted Chocolate Pistachio Tart ($4.50)
- Very smooth and rich bittersweet chocolate ganache
- Thick tart crust, surprisingly not too buttery
- Though you can see the pistachio shavings on top, it was noticeably absent tastewise
Taste: 8/10
Price: 8.5/10

Keong Saik Bakery 01/08/19
Matcha Almond Croissant ($3.90)
- Really buttery
- Strong matcha fragrance and yet only subtly sweet at the top, complements the rich buttery pastry
- Croissant was very crunchy, moist interior
- Very enjoyable to eat, feels quite light due to the matcha tea cutting through the pastry
- Not an airy croissant but dense and filled with matcha filling/cream
Price: 7/10 (Typical price)
Taste: 9/10
Overall: 8/10 (Worth a try if you like matcha)

Ihyo ($8)
- 'Matcha cheese mousse, Lime curd, Black Sesame Dacquoise, Black sesame cookie base'
- Sweet and tangy cheese mousse, strong matcha fragrance, very light and smooth
- Buttery strong black sesame cookie base. Buttery base helps to balance out some of the tangy cream cheese, but the cream cheese was still too strong for me
Overall, it tasted more like a matcha cream cheese cake. Base was either too thin or the cream cheese was too much to counter-balance one another. The black sesame was overwhelmed by the other elements of the cake.
Price: 6/10
Taste: 5/10
Overall: 5/10 (Will not order this again)

Pecan Tart ($5.50)
- 'Pecan, Honey, Brown sugar, Short crust pastry'
Sweet, sticky, loaded with pecans for more earthy notes; Didn't feel that it was overly sweet
Think the tart could have been thicker as the filling kind of overwhelmed the tart
Tastes exactly as how it is described.
Taste: 8.5/10

Kopi O Kosong ($1.70)
Always love the thick and strong coffee here

(Only ate this when I reached back home)
- 'Matcha meringue, Azuki cream, Matcha anglaise'
- Very fresh and light cream
Felt that the cake was too sweet, lacking in matcha and red bean flavour.
Nice contrast in textures from the crust of the exterior to the velvety smooth cream inside and finally the soft sponge base.
Taste: 5/10 (Unique cake but the flavours failed to deliver, will not order this again)
