Is this just expensive cai fan? Maybe, but it’s absolutely worth the price to get cai fan with quality sides that are fresh, healthy, neither oily nor salty, and taste delicious.

This set gets you a choice of rice, 2 cold sides, 1 warm side, and a soup. The cold dishes were refreshing, and the warm dishes were hearty. My choices were:
🍚 16-grain rice (it’s either this or white rice or a bun)
🥦 prawn cous cous salad with yuzu-sesame dressing: fresh-tasting, the broccoli and prawns both have a great bite
🥚 vegetable omelette: this is packed with edamame, corn, carrots and mushrooms, which provided wonderful texture in every mouthful in the midst of plenty of egg
🍘 tofu patty with shiitake mushroom sauce: this was the only dish I wouldn’t shout about. It’s not bad, but I’ve had less dry tofu patties. The other meaty warm sides looked good though.
🥕 carrot and cumin soup: fragrant with the sweetness of carrots and creamy but not overly so

Overall a good and satisfying meal! Only downside was the lack of staff that resulted in long queue despite there being many empty seats (I went early, the seats get filled up at dinner time and the queue gets correspondingly longer).

Innovative of Just Dough to use their mantous in a twist on the classic scrambled eggs and toast set. I can't categorise this – I think it's meant to be more cha chaan teng style rather than western style, but it also comes with a local kopi or teh. In any case its unique.

The mantou exceeded my expectations. It's a plain mantou that has been buttered and lightly toasted, while retaining its soft fluffiness. Scrambled eggs were lightly peppered, silky and smooth. Mushrooms were unfortunately a let down – it looked like a single mushroom from a can that's been sliced thinly. Overall it makes for a satisfying and value-for-money brunch.

You can choose either half rolls or full rolls. Each has lots of ingredients and I am only listing a few here. The dos amigos roll (top picture) was amazing, containing unagi with cream cheese, avocado, tamago and crunchy tempura bits amongst other things. The flavour and textures complemented each other well. Caterpillar, with crab meat, jicama, avocado, and other ingredients, was also tasty but did not have the satisfying crunch of the other. Overall the rolls are pricey but worth trying!

The name comes from the use of two types of eel, unagi and anago, in crunchy tempura form. The roll is topped with foie gras, and laid in ponzu mayo. The textures and tastes complement each other nicely. Of the rolls we tried, this was my favourite.

One of the cold starters, you can either get AB Tuna Pizza ($26), AB Mushroom Pizza ($20), or a combination of both. The pizza is thin and crisp, and truffle oil gives it a delicious fragrance.
