New cafe in the hood at a cozy corner along Craig road 👐
Also, had a mushroom quiche and roasted white chocolate raspberry cake.

I find that most places non-vegetarians like to eat at usually have limited vegetarian options. So I was really happy to come across this new cafe on a quiet street next to Tanjong Pagar Plaza. They have quite a number of vegetarian options alongside the meat items.

I got the Pumpkin Penne that comes with feta, pine nuts and a creamy marinara sauce ($11.50 as a lunch set including a hot drink) which was so good. And I was pleasantly surprised that I could pick a matcha latte as my set drink as they usually cost at least $5 anywhere in Singapore.

My lunch buddy ordered the Truffle Chicken Lasagna with an Iced Flat White (add $1 for iced drinks). It comes with a side salad which tasted quite truffly.

A good quality and value for money lunch option in the area - go try it out!

While the experience with the coffee and The Bearded Eggs were less pleasant, it seems that the Dill Cured Salmon is perhaps one of the signature offerings here. Described as “Pommes Anna, Herb Mayo, Poached Egg, Fennel and Orange”, the dish would satiate those whom have a preference of savoury flavours. The salmon was enjoyable, flaky and moist while carrying its own distinct flavour and lightly perfumed with dill, it remains as the star of the dish while the other elements such as the fennel and orange played secondary roles to the other elements. If anything, my favourite item here had to be the Pomme Anna; thinly-sliced potatoes that is stacked and layered atop one another that provides an interesting texture, yet well-flavored with salt and pepper that is similar to a gratin. Thought the poached egg felt a tad lonely here; whilst being flowy and all, there is not really anywhere that it quite belongs with the entire dish, sitting alone in a corner of the plate. Otherwise, a dish that is certainly worth ordering at Bearded Bella!

Specials so not sure if it's always available

Pork was rather juicy but it was not flavoured lol so that's where the generous serving of mustard sauce comes in. First time I've learnt to enjoy mustard due to this dish but the pork can get rather dry once the juices flow onto the plate

Smoky, sinful, and absolutely stunning, if not for the deep beefy notes you wouldn't have believed it was beef for it was so impeccably tender(mostly because of the fat, but more fat=more flavour amirite). However, given the portion of meat it can seem rather pricey(definitely enough to feed one though since it's so fatty)

Subtle tinge of cheese with fluffy cake layers. My all-time favourite strawberry cake.

Confit mushrooms on sourdough bread makes for a wholesome hearty meal. Loved the huge plump juicy mushrooms and the hummus on the side that’s topped with sesame. This place isn’t officially opened yet so they are going on a tipping basis (cash only). Be generous because the food’s good and call to check if the kitchen’s still open (:

Having tried their cakes, we actually felt that Bearded Bella seems to be have a focus on their desserts rather than their mains. The Dark Chocolate Cake is a mousse cake that comes with raspberry gelee within; one that is significantly well-executed than most other similar cakes locally. For one, the mousse cake here does not carry that gelatinous mirror glazings that other similar cakes might have; the mousse itself being rich without being jelly-like and slightly more dense (though not bothersome) in texture. Here, the chocolate mousse is rich and luxurious; bittersweet without causing the throat to burn up with a consistent texture throughout — very elegant on its own, while seated atop a brownie layer at the bottom that could admittedly be slightly more fudgey (but that’s nitpicking a little too much). Inside, the raspberry gelee provides a light hint of tartness that cuts through the richness of the chocolate, adding a good contrast of flavour to the cake. Must say that Bearded Bella’s patisserie is certainly something I find that I would be glad to return for — quite looking forward to what they are able to come up with for the line-up of dainty cakes in the future if they do.

Did not really consider this option until my friend was actually keen to try this — this actually fits the non-chocolate lover in me better overall. The smooth mousse reveals a lingering caramalised banana sweetness that goes so well with the light hint tangy sweetness provided by the passionfruit gelee within which sits atop a layer of cake at the bottom; very delicious and delicate indeed!

“Slow cooked pork jowls on baguette with green hollandaise and pickled daikon”. A dish that I wasn’t exactly fond of from it’s aesthetics — not sure if the Green Hollandaise appeals to some visually but it’s probably the element that sits the least well with me in this case. That aside, the bearded eggs is a poached egg dish with a slight meaty twist; the pork jowl being crisp, yet melt-in-the-mouth but free from any porky stench, whilst maintaining quite a bit of fattiness within — thought the pork jowl could have fared a little better with some salt for better flavour. The baguette was relatively crisp, while coming with a bit of tension with every bite; the eggs being perfectly poached with flows egg yolks within. Wasn’t quite a fan of the Green Hollandaise however; whilst coming with a slight tang and creaminess of the usual hollandaise, there seems to be a lime-ish flavour infused with it that provides a zingy taste that did not sit quite well with the creaminess for my taste buds especially given how the pork felt particularly bland — didn’t quite cut through the meatiness as it seems to be included for. The pickled daikons also particularly lacked any tangy notes that refreshes the tastebuds, being particularly plain whilst carrying crunch.
