Treated myself to this overflowing sandwich from Korio after crushing a particularly intense morning meeting. I want to say I love it, I really do, but it was just way too excessive. I waited 30 minutes, which is way too long for this simple combo of egg mayo + scallion + spam + cheese, even if it's made to order. While the flavours worked well together, I could only finish half of the sandwich before it got too overwhelming and greasy. Not too impressed by the service or the food. I ended up feeling worse after eating it. Go to one of the bagel places instead, they execute the concept far better.


Hiked up to the outskirts of Dempsey to try this al fresco, family-friendly, western home-style type brunch spot. Had the Green Shakshouka ($18 + $6 goat cheese), which was served in a soup bowl of spinach, kale, pesto and cream base, garnished with goat cheese and pumpkin seeds. It looks weird but it’s absolutely worth a try. Hearty, nutritious, comforting. Portion is good. Sourdough for dipping is impeccable. Ambience is a bright, pastel, flowery farmhouse that's all around feel-good. I will be back to try the rest of the menu!!

Pro-tip: Instead of a cheeseburger, get the grilled cheese ($8) + patty ($2) + whatever add-ons you like (FOC). You're basically getting a cheeseburger for ~$5 cheaper.

Messy, no-frills, grubby - it's an unrefined type of delicious. Pretty value too because of how highly customisable it is. Milkshake and fries were good but nothing to rave about, but this burger, all things considered, beats even the likes of Shake Shack/A&W. Though I did have to wait about 15 minutes because they had trouble fitting the toppings I wanted into the small grilled cheese. 😬

Pulled pork burger with coleslaw ($13.90).

This place is very much a typical western/fusion cafe (burgers, baked rice, pasta etc.) with a humble, unassuming old-school charm - coke bottles line the walls and you sit at board game tables that you can play on. Staff are nice. Empty on a Wednesday evening.

The sesame bun is thick and fluffy, and the easy-to-chew pork is generously soaked in a tasty BBQ sauce. This place doesn't skimp on fresh lettuce either. For this price? It's alright, but I personally would rather splurge on a quality burger to feel more satisfied.

This place is a good option if you're in the area and hankering for western fare. Otherwise, probably not worth a trip.
