Obviously I had to make up for lost time on my first ever visit to their Novena outlet. So instead of one, I tried two of their bagelwiches today, including “The Ribs” shown above,
Mega flavours detonated with my first bite of it. Smoked in-house by @asian.jon, the pork rib itself was hardcore with a deep-like-Barry-White smokiness and intense flavour from a peppery spice rub. As with this kind of preparation method, the meat can be a touch on the dryish side. Fortunately, it was well-lubed with a generous amount of “Rib BBQ sauce” (a complex little number with bacon, brown butter, honey, dark brown sugar, dijon mustard, coffee and the rib spice), jalapeño and “hobo greens” (a mash-up of lettuce and rocket).
I also learned that “Two Men Bagel House” just rolled out their new menu a week ago - talk about coincidence. So the bagelwich I had today is its latest iteration, having been tweaked by the team to taste even better. I‘ve not had “The Ribs” in its previous incarnation so there’s no point of comparison for me but what I can say is I liked this a whole lot.

Two Men Bagel House has refreshed their menu and we picked this interesting little number to go along with one of our old favs – The Ribs. The cod fish pate is made with their in-house smoked cod salad and capers while everything is brought together with their special sauce and a herb emulsion. My first impression was that it reminded me of Swedish cured herring; salty, funky and moist, it went great with the creamy special sauce. One of their lighter bagels and tasty for sure (though it might not be up everyone’s alley). On a side note, please bring back the old recipe for The Ribs! 🙏

Fluffy Souffle Pancakes for the Fluffy Unicorn ^.^ #happiness #fatdieme #strawberries #japanesestylepancakes #soufflepancakes #fluffyunicorn🦄 #2018❤️ #burpple #burpplesg #dessert #cafehoppingsg #commercialized #lifeisawesome

Maybe it’s the appearance of how this noodle dish is served, or just the fun of having to put all the ingredients together into the bowl of soup, but for $8.90, it’s definitely worth it! The chicken broth is so flavourful, and the addition of the different varieties of ingredients just makes everything better! I particularly loved the roast pork, which still had a crispy crackling despite sitting in the broth for quite a bit.

Got very disappointed with the almond croissant $3.80 @workspaceespresso newly opened eatery in Velocity Novena
Quite dry with no almond filling. We won’t mind paying more to get a decent quality.😔

Medium: 2 Protein + 4 Sides + 1 Sauce - $11.90
Selected Sushi Rice as base, Raw Salmon and cooked Shoyu Salmon. Topped up Tobiko Flying Fish roe, half boiled egg, tamago yaki & broccoli. Picked Kaisentei Signature Sauce for pairing
·
The rice bowl is filled with goodness, very generous in serving. The fresh salmon sashimi is your best pick, unless you only eat cooked salmon if not please ditch that for their salmon sashimi. Dipping the sashimi into the kaisen sauce and pair with a mouth of Japanese rice, shiok! The sauce is salty so go easy. There’s wide variety of toppings to select from and they taste great too. Very worthwhile as they provide free flow cooked egg and spicy bean sprouts too. You can select salad as base if wanna avoid carbs overload

Look at that yolk...YUMZ! 😋 (and a greedy somebody stealing the appetisers)

This was a fabulous alternative to eggs Ben. The thick grainy toast was slathered with a generous layer of well-seasoned avocado. The eggs were amazing. Whites were perfectly cooked and the yolks were lava. I loved it. The bits of salsa looking things on top added a slight tang that made the whole dish refreshing. Would prefer more sauce on salad.

No GST or service charge here.

What looked quaint at first sight became ridiculous after a while. The tea was lovely. My fav earl grey with the aroma of lavender. But this set up practically ensured that the tea became cold in super quick-time. The server assured us that we could request for hot water anytime, but that seemed to miss the point. I don’t think I drank anything hotter than lukewarm the entire time coz I couldn’t concentrate on timing the hot water while chatting with my friend. And after I finished my eggs on avo toast, the first pour was stone cold.

suuuper filling and really really worth it. everything complements one another and the mustard gives it that little bit more zing. meant to be eaten messily (and shared! with a friend :D ). great location for a weekend brunch, would definitely come by again 😍

Gold spice chicken. Salted egg, basil, curry leave, chilli.
.

Salted egg aroma definitely there. Basil nonexistent. Curry weak. Chilli yes. Batter was a bit too thick and gets hard if you’re thinking of taking away. The crispy experience will most probably be better in store. Salted egg taste is weak. Tasted like spicy chicken + ____ salted egg powder. Brand name censored.

Definitely a must try to satisfy the curiosity but whether I’ll eat again.. I think I’m better off getting salted egg pork ribs at Hong Kong street zi char

Occupational hazard is when you can recognize the brand of the seasoning/condiment.
