Chorizo Pizza ($18 Nett)
Have ordered 7 of their flavours and have always been satisfied.
Especially enjoyed the honey bacon pizza.

Chorizo pizza was very fragrant, with nice juicy slices of chorizo

Do note this place only has take away. Call in advance so theres minimal delay when you pick up.

Ultimate croissant - Huge portion of creamy scrambled eggs!
Pulled pork avocado Benedicts - Fucking good! smoky pulled pork combined w the creaminess of the avocado, Hollandaise sauce and runny egg
Honey paprika wings - crispy, sweet, yummy

For this dish, you get to choose the doneness of the angus top sirloin (medium for me!), and the beef was relatively tender and juicy. It was marinated bulgogi-style, which came through in the subtle sweetness of the beef.

The beef was served on top of linguine in a miso tomato cream sauce. The sauce tasted similar to marinara sauce, but you can detect the subtle unami notes of the miso. Definitely a filling dish too as the portion of sirloin was generous.

This pasta dish features linguine cooked in a garlic butter cream sauce mixed with gochugaru (korean red chilli pepper flakes). The linguine was accompanied by tender pieces of chicken also marinated with gochugaru, as well as fried garlic chips which were flavourful but not bitter due to overfrying.
While there was barely any heat from the dish, the addition of gochugaru did cut through the heaviness of the cream-based sauce, making it taste less cloying than a typical carbonara.

Regulars queue for this.
Lontong $3, not bad for the portion of ingredients offered.

Eleven Strands is a cosy cafe found in a quiet neighbourhood - great for getting away from the busyness and to enjoy some delish food. Utilised the burpple beyond 1-for-1 deal and it’s so worth it! The salmon was perfectly cooked and I enjoyed the bed of roasted potatoes. My boyfriend ordered the braised beef cheek ($25++) and felt that it was a tad too salty. Overall a decent dining experience.

Both meats were very tender. I especially like the mushrooms and sauce paired with the duck leg confit!

Wanton mee is quite good. Especially the Thai sausages.
