Experience the vibrant Melbourne cafe culture at @elixir.boutiqueroasters that serves good old full-bodied and straightforward espresso roast. That is not all. Besides its excellent brews, the food is great! ๐Ÿคฉ

Hereโ€™s another @burpple beyond 1-for-1 deal!
#notsponsored #justsharing as we find this really worth it. ๐Ÿคฉ

If you have been following my food trails, @elixir.boutiqueroasters should not be new to you. We love to get our brunch fixes here.

We went on a weekday morning and the staff was so nice to ask if we would like to have the WiFi password when my workaholic husband dished out his lappy. ๐Ÿ˜‡
Be prepared to queue on weekends tho. And yes, Iโ€™m thankful I get to enjoy this on a weekday without having to queue! โœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคช

Decided to explore a highly raved about cafe, @daizu.cafe ๐Ÿ˜‹ and of coz we had to try their newest addition, ๐—™๐˜‚๐—ท๐—ถ ๐—ž๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ถ ๐—”๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ป [$12] and I chose the ๐—จ๐—ท๐—ถ ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ท๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ [$7] that is not too sweet to go with the dessert; or rather a main as the portion was quite substantial for a meal. My kopi kaki chose to drink a bottled cold Hyogo Royal Milk Tea Brew [$7] to quench his thirst coz he just walked under the hot sun for close to 30mins to meet me ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜…

๐‘จ๐’ƒ๐’๐’–๐’• ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‘๐’‚๐’”๐’•๐’“๐’š:
This pastry, called Kouign(cake)-Amann(butter) is a round multi-layered cake, containing layers of butter and sugar folded in, similar to a puff pastry although with fewer layers. The cake is slowly baked until the butter and sugar puff up the dough in layers resulting in a caramelized croissant.

๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† ๐’•๐’‚๐’”๐’•๐’† ๐’•๐’†๐’”๐’•:
Pastry was so flaky and crispy [swipe left to watch video and listen to to how crispy it was when we cut through]. The matcha powder was a good match for the sweet pastry with its earthy yet not bitter taste.
๐— ๐˜† ๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜: I would prefer a matcha ice-cream instead of vanilla as it came off as a tad sweet for my liking in this combi. Pistachio nuts was a nice touch to add texture to the dessert.
Houjicha Latte had a thick texture with a nice smoky flavor to it. Yumz....

We were welcomed by the friendly and thoughtful staff; soaking in the conducive environment with aesthetically pleasing & yummy food (swipe left to see more pics).

I seldom come across cafes that serve really yummy food and I can gladly say, this is one of them!

Almost all the dishes were on-point!
The striploin steak ๐Ÿฅฉwas nicely seared and cod fish was super yummy in ginger soy broth that goes so well with the steamed short-grain rice.

The Confit Portobello with truffle oil would be what I call a ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑvegetarian steak; perfect for my meatless days. Likewise with the smoked salmon, it was coupled with their freshly house-baked sourdough ๐Ÿ˜‹. And swipe to see the silky smooth eggs ๐Ÿฅšon the smoked salmon plate!! Simply an art to cook eggs like this.

Seafood Arrabiatta was rich in flavor and creamy with the fresh seafood, definitely bang for the bucks.

Not only that, the lattes ๐Ÿตโ˜•๏ธwere โ€œgaoโ€ (aka strong) and aromatic. Desserts ๐Ÿฐ were good too.

Nitpick Moment:
๐Ÿš Would prefer the short-grain rice to be fluffier and softer. ๆˆ‘ๅ–œๆฌขๅƒ่ฝฏ้ฅญ๐Ÿคฃ

Honestly, I didnโ€™t expect much when I stepped into this aesthetically chic cafe except some simple pastries and nice tea.

To my surprise, @sodcafesg โ€˜s menu [starters, mains, build-your-own-pasta, brunch] was quite substantial ranging from only $6.90-$16.90 (including wagyu beef burger).

My personal fav would be the eggs Benny with brioche buns. Just love its vibrant colors (2nd pic). Love the taste of the sourdough in the big breakfast too!

Fell in love with @hvala_sg โ€˜s matcha when I first tasted it at @chijmes.sg outlet. Love their Zen ID and vibe; making the tea tasting experience very calm and soothing #moodlifter

For those who are lactose intolerant, good news! The drinks served at the Keong Saik outlet uses Oatmilk by default. Which is a healthier choice for me and vegan friendly too!

The aroma of their matcha is out of the world! Price is a little on the high but totally worth it, for premium ceremonial grade matcha! I wish I could drink this everyday! ๐Ÿฅฐ

๐Ÿต I love you so matcha

Brunch at @focr.sg on a relaxing Monday. Iโ€™ve always appreciate cafes that opens on Mondays as early as 8am! โœŒ๐Ÿป Food was yummy, company was great and a nice weather to walk around the hood [stay tuned for photos of our mini โ€œtourโ€๐Ÿคฃ]

Iโ€™ve ordered the vegetarian option:

SEA SALT RICOTTA AVOCADO TOAST $16 - sourdough toast, guacamole, avocado, ricotta, poached eggs , roasted tomatoes, dukkah, sea salt.

And my friend ordered the BAKED EGGS $19 - tomato sauce, bacon, chorizo, baby spinach, feta cheese, almond, sourdough toast

Mine was delicious and refreshing!
However, I wish the poached eggs were more flavorful as they were rather bland. Would definitely go back to try the other dishes.
