[A open faced sourdough sandwich with a hummus spread, curried cauliflower topped with onions and a sprinkle of dukkah.]
Thereโ€™s a very prominent spice flavour that hits you from the dukkah and the curried cauliflower, that I personally really liked, accompanied with the creamy and garlicky hummus spread. I loved the mix of textures, and overall it was pretty tasty and filling.

The portion looks small but itโ€™s quite filling as the dish is very creamy! The different sauces had distinctive flavour profiles that melded well together. But I just wish that the tomato sauce was fresher

For their burgers, you can pick either a side of salad, fries, or a half-&-half of both!

This was the most tender and fatty char siew Iโ€™ve had in my life ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. Pulls apart so easily, the soft and juicy meat coated with a sweet bbq char siew sauce that had a deep flavour. It sat atop a slice of foccacia bread coated with butter and mayo. However, I thought the bread to be a bit too soft, almost soggy, possibly from the amount of butter used. It took away from the dish and didnโ€™t serve to balance the soft meat well.

Iโ€™ve never been the type to pick the seafood option but this โ€˜๐๐จ๐ฎ๐ง๐ญ๐ฒ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐’๐ž๐šโ€™ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฑ๐ž๐ ๐†๐ซ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ฌ ๐๐จ๐ฐ๐ฅ ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘) has me reconsidering everything ๐Ÿ˜ณ. With roasted cod loin, shredded crab meat, and incredibly plump and tender Japanese scallops, this bowl screamed fresh, clean and delicious. The amount of pickled vegetables initially seemed excessive, since the fish wasnโ€™t very oily, but the sour-savory tang somehow did wonders to balance out and brighten the dish. The rice itself was also soaked in flavour, the harder grains lending a bite to contrast the soft seafood. If I were to be picky, the cod was a tad bit overcooked, but it really didnโ€™t take much away from the overall delectable dish.

The ๐๐ข๐ ๐ ๐ฒ & ๐„๐ ๐ ๐ฌ ($๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ) showed us how scrambled eggs should be done, with perfectly silky folds encasing a rich and creamy egg flavour. The eggs are paired with slow cooked pulled pork that had a deep flavour and a tinge of sweetness, along with a sausage that held an intense spice flavour. Surprisingly, the toast remained crispy even while sitting under the eggs, and was in itself really delicious with a nutty sweet edge.

Overall, I really enjoyed the food, and I think that Populus is worthy option for good cafe brunches in sg, and itโ€™s definitely worth the trip
