Iโ€™ve tried Blue Label at both the Somerset and Ann Siang outlets, and have to say I much prefer the pizzas here! Had both the Original Famous (pictured) and the Summer in San Sebastiรกn. Must say Iโ€™m usually not one to pay for cheese pizzas because I always think theyโ€™re not worth but I really enjoyed the Original Famous. The cheeses paired well with their chaota not-thin-yet-not-thick crust ๐Ÿ˜‹ Found the San Sebastiรกn just alright, the octopus didnโ€™t have a distinct chewiness that I wouldโ€™ve liked but my friends did enjoy it! Will be back for more pizza ๐Ÿ•

Hands down the best dish of the night ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ A friend of mine recommended me this place, and it didnโ€™t disappoint! We got the chaota pork ribs and chaota belly good as well, and all the meat was tender and fall-off-the-bone soft. The lemongrass seasoning in this dish was definitely a stand out (the other two dishes started to taste a little sameish after a while) and the watermelon salad side which was so delish Iโ€™d order it individually as a side. Everything was great, if a little salty, but the lemongrass pork Iโ€™d order again in a heartbeat :-)

Good dish - and this is coming from someone who isnโ€™t the biggest fan of poached eggs or spinach ๐Ÿ˜‹ Would suggest you add on the espresso maple streaky bacon for an additional $5 if youโ€™re getting this cause you could really taste the espresso glaze and it was great! Their hollondaise sauce and crispy milk bread also deserves a shoutout. Probably wouldnโ€™t buy again though because given the price tag Iโ€™d definitely have expected a bigger serving ๐Ÿ˜… Also got their portobello melt, chicken wings and white coffee as well - all pretty standard brunch fare but done fairly well!

Been meaning to try this place for a while, but sadly because of covid they no longer have their free flow salad bar โ˜น๏ธ Nonetheless, while the hamburg itself was nothing mind blowing it was still a really satisfying meal! Shoutout to the free flow eggs though because the scrambled eggs and tamagoyaki were really delish ๐Ÿ˜‹

Thought this chicken parmigiana would be pretty standard fare but it turned out to be the star of the night! The chicken was crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and it came with toppings of tomatoes, cheese and mushrooms which I really enjoyed. We got their prawns and chorizo mac and cheese ($15) too which was yummy as well ๐Ÿ˜‹

Honestly didnโ€™t know Flagwhite sold this but was pleasantly surprised to see it here ๐Ÿ˜Š From the famous Keong Saik Bakery, so a good idea for the westies who are lazy to travel. Light and fluffy with a subtle earl grey flavour, it comes in matcha and original flavours as well. Contrary to popular opinion I found the cheesecake as a whole rather average and each slice was quite small, but can see why people would like it!

Glorious crispy truffle fries! The truffle smell is stronger than the taste but honestly at $8 for such a huge basket I canโ€™t really complain ๐Ÿค— Goes very well with their pale ale on tap which was light and fruity, and $10 during happy hour!

Was super excited to try their earl grey toast but sadly this didnโ€™t really live up to my expectations ๐Ÿ˜… Had a subtle earl grey flavour which I enjoyed and the bread was crispy and toasted well, but overall the jam didnโ€™t have much of a flavour, and possibly because the jam was cold my toast was served cold as well! Tried their Matcha Milk Toast too which was fairly similar except with a slightly more bitter taste because of the matcha. Would say try this once for the novelty factor, but maybe return for their other offerings (of which Iโ€™ve heard the PB toast is pretty good). Their drinks are also very affordable too at $2+ for a large cup of tea so will probably be back for that instead!

As someone whoโ€™s not a big fan of fish, I had a bit of a struggle trying to decide what to get in a place where everyone seemed to be opting for the Chilean sea bass ๐Ÿ˜… Would say this is a good option if youโ€™re trying their set lunch though! The pork was flavourful and the sauce added a really nice tang ๐Ÿ˜‹ Each set also comes with a serving of crispy fries and a dessert - both the tiramisu and blood orange sorbet were pretty great. Come early before 12 noon for an extra 10% off your bill too!

Felt like having some high tea after our meal so we headed on over to try Anti:dote! Pretty decent overall, and a great place to relax with your friends and some tea ๐Ÿ˜‹ Personally liked the savouries more than the sweets (though those were good as well) but probably wouldnโ€™t return here given the rather hefty price tag ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
