The chicken cubes were relatively tender, and were tossed in a savoury sweet sauce, was not bad! The edamame & cucumber salad, and pickled daikon were good accompaniments. Again, nothing particularly outstanding, but gotta say that their chicken is nicer than those standard food court Korean/Japanese stalls.

This rice bowl came with silken tofu that was battered and then deep fried, was kinda like agedashi tofu. The braised mushroom, and eggs were p standard. Thought they could have given more mushrooms. I liked this better than the teriyaki chicken bowl! A decent lunch option, and there was 1-4-1 with burpple beyond so it’s rather affordable. Not sure if I’ll come back again tho, it’s not particularly amazing - I’ll prefer to eat at other places nearby!

Just days when I am craving breakfast food for dinner…!!!

Was drawn in by this new cafe at holland village with its fanciful interior that screams AMERICA!!! And honestly I enjoyed the food and experience (plus it was reasonably priced). The food wasnt spectacularly mind-blowing but am very satisfied everything was great. Fried chicken was humongous and the skin was super crispy and meat was tender too (perhaps the only downside was the waffle… :( tastes like ikea breakfast waffle slightly rubbery…) Rosti was GOOD too!! Crispy edges of the potatoes :”) And we can’t go wrong with all star plate!! - special shoutout to the well-seasoned potatoes.

The brownie was moist and sticky, slightly sweet and chocolatey. Shout-out to the seasalt flakes that complemented well with the chocolate!

A good iced white on a Sunday rainy afternoon sounds real good and we found it here @ ballad of anna may!! JUST scroll right and soak in the atmosphere and vibes! A pity that they have limited seating capacity and shares the shop space with a barber but we really love the whole set-up. The iced white itself was tad pricey at $7.50 but it’s a pretty huge cup with strong caffeine kick and the coffee itself was smooth and easy to drink.

My fav acai place of all time! Have been a loyal fan since 2015, and I still believe their acai is the best. It doesn’t melt quickly (for this purchase, I did a takeaway and only started eating it 10 mins after and it hardly melted), it’s smooth and not icy, it’s good acai base.

The variety of fruits they provide is pretty wide, there’s banana, strawberry, mango, honeydew, grape, blueberry, dragonfruit. The other crunchy toppings were yummy too, there’s cacao nibs, granola, rice puffs. And coconut shreds + chia seeds as well.

This was very satisfying, had it for lunch and I was full halfway through. Acai is generally not the cheapest but at least at project acai, for $9.30 you get consistent quality, generous variety and portion. Had this the day after trying W Acai (which is more expensive?? higher price + smaller portions) so I was affirmed that this OG brand / place is still the go-to place for acai.

Got this with the burpple deal, which is for an acai + a drink. Thought this was average at best - the acai got melty halfway through even tho we had this in store (an air conditioned area), and the toppings were also just average. The granola is decent, pumpkin seeds gave crunch. But the almonds had lost their crunch and was pretty laohong :/ there’s 2-3 types of fruit which isn’t much variety. Would probably not return for another round of acai - we just wanted to try and it affirmed me that project acai is still the best (to me)!

This also saw a price increase from $11, but was satisfying as it was crisp outside, with a cheesy blend of emmental, parmesan and brie that was not too sharp or salty. The hot tomato soup was pulpy and was great for both dipping and drinking. The bread used was of decent quality but it could be elevated I guess. I don’t know if it’s just cheap plain white bread but they toasted it well enough!

The last time I had this, it was so yummy - fluffy fragrant earl grey pancakes, at a price point of $16. Fast forward to now: a price increase, and a dip in quality. There was barely any earl grey flavours coming through at all. Pancakes weren’t as fluffy and usually I don’t like too much sauce bc it gets too sweet, but for this it needed more sauce. The poached pear was decent, nicest thing on the plate was the crunchy crumble. So sad because it used to be something I looked forward to and enjoyed, but this experience unfortunately propagates the stereotype that *most* cafes serve overpriced cafe food.

Second time having this! First time I had it, it was very meh (the whole toast felt a bit stale, like it was out for a while) and I wondered why there were all these raving reviews. But I was determined to try it again and this time it was pretty delicious. Runny eggs, warm cheese on a toasted bread is a winning combination. Still not keen on the bacon jam, it’s okay but I wouldn’t mind not having it!

Not bad! Toast was very fluffy inside, and the caramelised banana had a sugar top you could shatter. Candied walnuts were crunchy, salted caramel was very rich so I didn’t have a lot of it but it was nice. Surprisingly the overall dish wasn’t too sweet, but also maybe because I shared it with a friend. Worth a try, and also made more affordable with burpple beyond :)

New addition to the list of beautiful cafes @ Chijmes πŸ₯° however, other than the aesthetics and the chill vibes, I felt that the food was just alright... matcha mochi bun was passable - matcha bits were crispy and mochi was chewy and generous but felt that the matcha taste can be stronger and honestly not worth for the price! Apple caramel cake - real apple bits on the surface but the apple oxidised by the time it reached us so didn’t really value add to the cake, the caramel was sweet and pronounced but then again nothing spectacular!! Friend got the matcha latte (in the background) and the milk was so much in comparison to the matcha - would recommend their matcha neighbour instead (iykyk) πŸ™Š I didn’t try their mains so can’t comment, might be good pls try and lmk! πŸ€—
