Thought this sweet potato chilli chicken bowl ($18++) may get jelat quick but it was enjoyable throughout! Loved the mix of textures and contrast of flavours from roasted sweet potatoes, mashed avocado with lime and spiced baked chickpeas. Wish there were more tomatoes - so juicy and sweet! Chicken was a little dry but surprisingly tender with a beautiful char and savoury marinate.

Tried the famed creamy chicken scrambled eggs ($16++)! The portion of chicken, mushroom and spinach is rather measly, but the eggs are stunning - smooth and creamy with the right balance of savouriness. It sits atop a buttery croissant which remained crispy even til the end of the meal. Enjoyed the added dimension of the chicken broth but this dish does get heavy after a bit!

Deviated from my usual orders and took a chance with the Chingon ($15+) on an all sorts bagel! The lamb shoulder was tender and incredibly flavourful, its smokey flavour enhanced by the sour twang of labneh and topped with a really refreshing salsa.

I’m not the biggest fan of rye but the toppings on the avocado toast ($18) stole the show!! The poached eggs were packed separately but I could have done without them - the avocado was so so! creamy and its flavour elevated by sweet tomatoes and savoury feta. Dukkah added some texture and a nice burst of flavour. Have been dreaming about having this again!

Thought the brekkie burg ($19) might be a touch surfeiting but it really impressed me! The party was juicy with a great bite, the scrambled eggs creamy and well seasoned. A very good medley of flavours once you add the garlic butter and onion jam!

Was inexplicably drawn to the HCP ($16.50) but it was a little underwhelming. The baguette had a soft fluffy bite but got stale when cooled, and the medley of cheeses sounded more vibrant than it actually tasted. Enjoyed the contrast of acidic giardiniera against the salted meats!

Rather expensive for a grilled cheese sandwich ($16), but this was enjoyable! I wished they used a cheese stronger than cheddar, but the ham was lean and not too salty. It was layered with caramelised onions and the sourdough had a great chew! The rocket and roasted tomatoes on the side helped to balance the heavy flavours.

Loved the smoked flavours in Primal ($15+)! The chimchurri spices complemented it well. However, the brisket was waaay too fatty with barely any meat and the wrapping was soaked with oil from the chimchurri. Would have liked more peppers to balance its heavy flavour profile!

Was really looking forward to TMBH, but it fell a little short of expectations! Each portion is evidently smaller than before, and the all-sorts bagel we had was rather dense and stale. Enjoyed the creaminess of the ricotta and the savoury tomato relish in Bobow ($12+)! It was rather one-dimensional in terms of texture, so I’d probably opt for something else next time.

Oberworks ($18) is your typical breakfast set. 2 eggs are in a style of your choice - the scrambled we chose was of a good consistency with a runny centre, but lacking in seasoning! Strong flavours from the spiced sausage and bacon thus complemented the eggs. The portion of mushrooms wasn’t big but it was certainly well sautéed! The brioche toast was a nice addition. I wouldn’t pay full price for this, but it’s certainly worthwhile with burpple beyond. Business has certainly picked up this week with Shopback’s boosted 35% cashback - it was crowded at lunchtime, even on a weekday!

Ordered the croissant with scrambled eggs ($11) during a return visit! There seems to be great variability in their scrambled eggs - I enjoyed it during my previous visits, but found this one too watery and sorely lacking in seasoning. Quite a pity given that the eggs are a feature point in this dish! The croissant here is however, one of my favourites. Perfectly crisp and glazed on the outside, with fluffy buttery layers inside!

The All-In Brekkie ($19) features an assortment of ingredients! I particularly enjoyed the scrambled eggs, which were fluffy and perfectly seasoned. The chorizo was good too, with hints of smoky spiciness! Otherwise, I felt that the portion didn’t really justify the price. It’s still great value, especially with burpple beyond’s weekday set!
