Hidden behind the swathes of zigzagging paths that lead towards the top of fort canning hill, @lejardinsingapore is found in Fort Canning Arts Centre (where the bicentennial was hosted) -- a location enveloped in greenery. What adds to the ambience is the Victorian-style interior, which is covered in fresh flowers and wallpaper. This cafe is also by the same people behind @cafedenicolesflower but I preferred this cafe over the other because of its fitting location.

What makes a waffle a croissant? I suppose it's the various layers of flakes in the waffle itself. Quite an interesting creation but it wasn't crispy enough. The scrambled eggs, mushroom ragout and pork tolouse sausage were enjoyable but the rest were quite lacklustre.

This place's redeeming quality is solely its sublime ambience. I didn't even feel compelled to try their fancy overpriced drinks. May be worth a try if your an ambience kind of person but food wise, just grab something else at the city hall or bras basah area.

This pathetic excuse for brunch tasted as bad as it looks. The sunny side egg had absolutely no interesting qualities about it, and the mesclun salad was a sad few strands of greens that felt like residents of the bottom of a salad bag.

I didn't give a 0 rating because the mushroom ragout actually tasted really fresh despite its small size.

Situated near Telok Ayer MRT, this cafe boasts a semi-alfresco section with outdoors sitting but also a canopy and fans overhead. Perfect for enjoying a cooling breeze while catching up with friends. What's better, the food is extremely worth it with a 🌠1 for 1 with burpple beyond 🌠 I'll definitely be back soon!

Not skimping on cheese is an essential tenet of making a good quesadilla and this dish lived up to its name. Other than that, however, there was not much else interesting about the quesadillas because they were so simple.

That said, the roast potato chunks were amazing! Crispy outside and fluffy on the inside -- very well done. I loved dipping them into the variety of sauces I was provided with.

The photo may not look like much but the mushroom was fantastically juicy! It provided a toothsome firmness when I bit into it, which is a testament to just how fresh it was.

The caramelised onions were also great in texture and the right level of sweet. And again, the roasted potatoes were crispy and fluffy as well.

All in all a great burger. I almost forgot I wasn't eating any meat!

The cafe has a mini-masterchef showdown yearly so they can refresh the menu every year. That's right, you'll never be tired of all the quality cafe picks here. I also thought it was incredibly commendable how open they are to constructive feedback -- that's the makings of a fantastic cafe right there. Really enjoyed my time here and will definitely be back for more!

The moment this pizza was set down, the heady scent of truffle wafted towards my nose. The pizza itself was cheesy and deliciously moist thanks to the wobbly egg on top. The crust is quite different from the usual bready kind but was almost flakey instead. Can't say I prefer it but it added to the crisp factor.

Thanks Burpple and the Assembly Ground for hosting our eat-up!

Doesn't this look just delectable with its creamy mushrooms and shaved parmesan? The creamy cheesiness was married beautifully with the earthiness of the mushroom. I really enjoyed the daubing of truffle paste with the thick parpadelle but it could've been a little more al dente.

Thanks againnn @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!

This delivered everything you could ask for a burger. I particularly appreciated how the patty was was thick and slightly pink in the middle, and the organically sweet caramelised onions.

Sadly I had it when it had sat on the table for a while, so I can't really comment about how it tasted when it was hot. I'm definitely coming back to try this again, though! It's that good!

Thanks againnn @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!

This paled in comparison with the other dishes but still held its own. Pick this if you're vying for a healthier choice here, because the chicken was undeniably tender and juicy. That said, the truffle taste wasn't very strong here, but what I did taste didn't quite go with the chicken.

Thanks @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!

When I say I want salted egg yolk, I want it thick and gritty, with fragrant curry leaves. This definitely delivered! There's nothing special about the calamari itself but I can't complain about the firmness of the squid either.

Thanks @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!

I don't usually go for tomato pastas but this had me coming back for more! The tangy notes of the sauce countered the salinity of the crabmeat to deliver a well-balanced, refreshing pasta. There was also a very generous serving of real crab meat within.

Thanks @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!

The fish and clams were was tremendously fresh. I'm not usually a fan of seafood but I gladly gobled my tasting portion down. What really sold the dish was the thin but rich seafood broth that could double as a soup in it's own right. A must-order for seafood-lovers.

Thanks @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!

Though the crumble, fruits, and ice cream made for a sweet treat, the actual texture of the brownie was a miss. It had a strange overly-consistent feel to it that was neither cakey nor fudgy enough. Granted the brownie and ice cream came frozen but when it thawed, it didn't come through.

Thanks @burpple and @theassemblyground for the eat-up!
