I had a small bite to try, and I realised I don’t rly like dill so I probably wouldn’t order this myself. My friend felt that this was too jelat at the end, so I guess it’s not something we’ll repurchase!

The noodles served here are the hongkong-style egg noodles, tossed in a light sauce. We enjoyed how springy the noodles were! The charsiew was buttery, and it was pretty shiok when eating the crispy edges. The wantons are stuffed with shrimp, which is generous given that other stalls usually only add minced meat to their wantons. However, we didn’t really fancy the shrimp dumpling in the hk style wanton noodle, nor the wantons, as the skin was a little strange. The dumpling would probably be nicer with some water chestnut in the filling!

Overall, this is a pretty good bowl of wanton noodles, and I would definitely have it again :)

Have tried sausage fest previously, but I enjoyed it better this time as it was more cheesy! I feel that 2 sausage patties are a bit much for me tho.

The K-Town Gim contained a generous serving of braised short plate, which was nicely charred at the sides, well-seasoned, and not tough. However, it didn’t gel well with the asian pickles & gochugata sauerkraut, which I thought could be more sour.

Flower Power contains broccoli falafel, tahini yogurt, red onions, cucumbers & tomatoes. Had this with a sesame bagel. The spices in the falafel gave good flavour, and the charred bits at the sides were extra nice. It was moist, with a minced texture (rather than a purée) that I liked!

Warthog contains smoked pork belly, red cabbage slaw & BBQ sauce. This is currently our favourite Novena option! The pork belly had the perfect ratio of lean meat to fat ratio, where the fatty portion wasn’t too much / surfeiting. The cabbage slaw was sour & crunchy, and together with the BBQ sauce, was a good accompaniment to the pork belly.

This tasted as good as it looked! The scramble was fluffy and slightly runny, I was really impressed! Croissant was crisp as well. My lunch buddy had the bacon chop and offered me some, but I feel that the smoked salmon was a better choice (the bacon was a bit heavy for me). I’ve been to rookery a few times now and I haven’t been disappointed. Prices are a little on the high side if not for the 1-4-1 deals on eatigo/burpple/ShopBack, so thank goodness for that :)

A long queue for this, but unfortunately it was a little too salty for our liking. The meat is tender and not dry, but really salty. Thankfully, the bagel and pickles help to cut through that saltiness slightly. Probably would not queue for this again!

These were some pretty solid tarts, my family enjoyed it a lot! Crust was flaky, crunchy and buttery; not at all soggy. This is what an ideal shortcrust pastry should taste like. Egg custard was soft and creamy for both.

The crunchy pine nuts shone through for the roasted pumpkin tart, and the fragrance from the sage was very inviting. I liked this tart more than the other.

For the mushroom tart, there was a nice earthy flavour from the mushroom but the goat's cheese was a bit strong for me.

Maple sausage was rather nice, it was juicy and well seasoned. I liked the combi of the sausage w sunny egg, cheddar (yay cheese!) & mustard, but the seeded bagel was a little off-form that day.

Didn’t think I was going to like the scrambled egg white, but it was surprisingly good: tasty and not dry. But I would definitely welcome yolks. Tomato relish was great! Tangy, savoury and sweet. The turkey sausage was moist, and I liked the choc chip bagel (but it got soggy from the relish). Think childhood choc bread but upgraded & in bagel form.

The Indian spiced grilled chicken was tender, well-seasoned and had smoky crisp ends, delicious. The achar was very spicy for me, but shiok! Blood yogurt was interesting, and gave a slight sour taste. Couldn’t rly taste the garlic in the bagel, probably bc of the spice.

It’s hard to choose, but my favourite out of the 3 might be chick-a-boom, which edges out the other 2 very slightly, as I prefer chicken over sausage patties :)

The red peppers were delicious, roasty and soft. Egg custard was soft but not overly eggy; the top part had a savoury kick from the cheese and was great! The flaky pie crust however, could have been more crisp, but I liked that the base was chonky and buttery. Also, they gave a generous fat slice that was huuuge!

These were decent, plus points for the cheese pull for both. But the bread was just white bread toasted till it was rather dry, which made it crispy but ended up tasted dehydrated.

Fowl Play’s chicken wasn’t dry, and the ranch sauce wasn’t cloying! Pickle was extremely salty.

I preferred Fun Guy. Their balsamic on rocket was good but the poached egg’s yolk was half runny half fully cooked :( Mushrooms (shiitake + shimeiji) were nice!

I wouldn’t pay full price for these tho, and while the service staff were nice and attentive, the food took way too long to come.

The pumpkin seed crust was very crunchy and was my favourite part of the sandwich roll. The egg mayo, cheese & arugula went well with it!

I liked the babka a lot, as there were bits of chocolate and raisin in every bite, and the bread wasn’t dry. I love warm, cinnamony flavours and this was satisfying!

The roasted mushroom tartine was topped with different mushroom varieties, cheese, arugula and finished with pesto + olive oil. The pesto was great and I enjoyed how the mushrooms were juicy with textural variation as they were of different varieties.

Got the feather on a sea salt bagel. It was decent but we felt that it was a bit too salty for our liking but the chicken was not dry, so plus points for that!

We chose a blueberry bagel for our schmear and I liked it! The mild blueberry taste, coupled with the cream cheese which was pretty light, was good :)
