This is nice! The cheese given I think was generous and perfect, the incorporation of sauerkraut definitely made this sandwich more unique. If u’re no big fan of sauerkraut maybe can simply request to remove it, will still result in a good grilled cheese!
Also served with some tomato jam that I feel makes this sandwich more special!

No rum detected in the banana at all but the bananas were still AMAZING! Loved how it’s pan fried to let the natural caramelization of the banana out!
French toast was PERFECTly soaked, super love it!
Paired with berries and fresh yogurt (non sweetened), this is a french toast you can have as a main
Overall, as a french toast mania I’m GLAD GLAD GLAD I put this on my french toast bucketlist!

I love salmons and I loved this even more because the salmon was cooked very nicely! It was juicy, full of its natural flavor. Pistachio crust indeed gave it more uniqueness, it was put on top of potato rosti which I think can be bigger (bc the name is Salmon Rosti). The rosti itself was great in the middle part but I think the exteriors were slightly over-fried, giving that smoky flavor which some people may not like at all. As for me, it was still ok since can just put the over-fried parts aside. On the bottom of it all are rocket salad which I think was nice, I rlly liked the addition of pomegranates that added some sweetness and juiciness that was essential in bringing balance to this whole plate!
Overall, at $24 it was quite worth it given the location and all, especially the quality (& how I enjoyed it). Still slightly bothered by the over-fried rosti tho.

This was AMAZING! Inside the perfectly toasted bread are some damn good melted cheese, coating the outer part of bread itself was another crunchy cheese layer.
Served on top of nice tomato soup that goes really well with the cheese toast
REALLY RECOMMENDED!

This was a nice Egg-Benedict-like dish! It had English Muffins as the base just like egg benedicts, on top are portobello mushrooms, delicious salty ham, spinach, and of course egg with runny yolk. On the side is salad consisting of broccoli, tomatoes, rocket, lotus roots, etc seasoned with sesame dressing that was towards the sweet side but I say it goes really well with the saltier things on top of the muffin

Brioche was perfectly soaky and soft, coated with crunchy cornflakes crust that totally made this french toast different from other french toasts.
What made this french toast outstanding, however, wasn’t the unique crunchiness alone! It was also accompanied by well executed toppings. The creme Chantily on top was nice and smooth, just mildly sweet. The fresh berries were fresh and adds some juicy tangy flavor.
Served separately are fragrant maple syrup and unsalted butter topped with dashes of salt so they can be suited to your palate. I really like adding some butter and salt, adds a buttery flavor to the toast and pleasant hints of saltiness!
Totally recommending this dish!

Salmon skin was nicely crispy, that was impressive! The salmon was quite big, kinda lacked flavor but complimented with the veggies surrounding it
The hummus was nice, cauli and bruised tomatoes as well.
I really liked the addition of few pomegranates and pistachio that gave some ‘surprises’ of flavor!

The ‘coffee’ comes from the coffee creme fraiche spread on the toast, although I hardly taste any coffee. I LOVE their smoked salmon and their PERFECTLY poached eggs 🍳 {swipe for some real good #yolkporn }. Switched sourdough to multigrain because their multigrain toast is 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻. Completed with dill capers and seasonal salad, totally a great dish for brunching. 🥞🍓🍨
On the third picture I present you their buttermilk waffles with berry compote and vanilla ice cream. Love the waffles! The outer part is lil crunchy and the inner part is soft and airy. Also love their compote because the sourness just goes perfect with the vanilla ice cream. {some people say @strangersreu have the best waffles in Singapore!}
Had a great time brunching here!

It appears that the Creme Brûlée french toast had been replaced by Strawberry Cheese french toast and here is it in the picture.
The toast itself is filled with some strawberry and cream cheese, then additional cream cheese, fresh cream, vanilla ice cream, berries, hazelnuts, and also honeycomb & honey drizzle are added into the dish.
While I like soaky fluffy french toasts more, theirs wasn’t very soaky and the bread wasn’t the fluffy type (maybe sourdough!). Still enjoyed the whole plate though! My favorite part are the hazelnuts and honeycomb which added different flavor and texture to the french toast.
I would also like to mention the awesome service. Even though it was crowded during my visit, my french toast didn’t take a long time to be served! ❤️👌🏻

(It was previously Hustle Co.)
In frame is the “Deconstructed Spanish Jamon Omelette”. Consisting of a bed of omelette, picuillo mayo, with some asparagus, rocket salad, and of course Jamon (ham) slices.
The jamon really leveled the dish up! I recommend adding a sourdough so you can have a DIY jamon egg sandwich! The saltiness and savory flavor of the jamon is very nice eaten together with other elements of the dish that have gentle flavors 🤤, even nicer between their sourdough (they have good sourdough!)

The risotto was nice 👍🏻 just a little cheesy and I really like the little bit of soup that added more ‘Hainanese’ element to it.
The chicken was thigh aaand I’ll still prefer chicken breast but I think they did a great job on the chicken! Even though it was chicken thigh I was still able to enjoy it, it was flavored nicely!
Really enjoyed the whole thing andd definitely coming back to try the other menus!
Conveniently located in Bugis near Haji Lane, @stateland_coffeehouse is somewhere you should go for fusion dishes aaand they’re a house with @brotherbird_bakehouse who’s famous for their mochi croissants and soft serves!

wagyu seared thyme, vegetables and grain!
Wagyu seared thyme, i believe it can be tender and juicer even though I requested for ‘well done’ meat
The vegetables were ON POINT! So well-executed and sauteed, with on-point seasonings.
Grains include a mix of barley, quinoa and other stuffs, truly making a healthy lunch option!
