For Healthy, Vegetarian Meals In A Homely Joint Don’t be fooled by the name, Well Dressed Salad Bar certainly serves up a multitude of vegetarian and vegan dishes - and they are some good stuff! They’re housed in a corner unit with Eight Treasures Vegetarian (which serves Chinese vegetarian dishes) near the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. The staff will ask whether you’re here for WDSB or ETV, bring you to your table and provide the appropriate menus before coming back to take your orders later. Our young male server was a little blur about the menu items, but he was genuinely very sweet, friendly and earnest. Though some of the staff weren’t as friendly, the majority of them were proactive and helpful - even coming back to our table to check if we wanted ‘no onions’ in our other dishes as we’d specified that for another order, offering to take a family photo when all our food had arrived, checking if the sweetness was okay for my beverage as I’d requested for less sugar. The ambience at WDSB isn’t snobbish, it’s homely, welcoming, and with such delicious healthy vegetarian foods, I’ll definitely be returning. Recommendations: - Smokey Edamame Chia Nachos ($7.50) - The BPMH Burger with SeaSalt Seaweed Chips as a side ($16.50) - Veganlicious All-Day Brunch Set ($16.50)

The BPMH ($16.50) The BPMH burger stands for black pepper monkey head mushrooms, served with bell peppers, celery, cucumber, tomato and avocado slices, tucked between lovely vegan wholemeal brioche buns. We ordered these without onions. This dish comes with two sides where you can select from herbed potatoes, seasalt seaweed chips, Italian pasta salad and garden salad. We went with the seaweed chips and garden salad which were fantastic choices - the seaweed chips were akin to fried popiah skin wrapped around crisp seaweed, which was a favourite across the table and we all agreed that we should order a double portion of this next time. The salad vegetables were really fresh, not a limp leaf in sight - always a good sign at any self-respecting eatery. The monkey head mushrooms in this burger are sliced longitudinally which makes them all the better to absorb the black pepper sauce. I love the fibrous and meaty texture of monkey head mushrooms, and these were no exception. They were tender, chewy and oh so flavourful with the black pepper sauce. The vegan wholemeal brioche buns were toasted to crispness and tasted amazing. Not as buttery or sinful as regular brioche buns, but honestly they were so delicious in this burger I didn’t think I was missing out on anything. The vegetables in the burger were scattered quite haphazardly across the bun, so you won’t get a single bite with everything. That didn’t bother me much as the main star of the burger was the monkey head mushrooms, which were spread quite evenly across the whole burger. I did wish that the avocado was smashed and spread on the bun rather than sliced as the pieces kept slipping around. Eating this burger is a messy task, and I suggest just getting down and dirty with your hands instead of trying to be dainty and cutting it apart. Don’t expect that toothpick in the center to hold the burger together, and be gentle when putting the burger down as the fillings do tend to fall out. Overall a delicious and satisfying burger that I wouldn’t mind ordering again but with such a wide variety of delicious and healthy dishes to choose from, it might be a while before I order the BPMH once more.

Best Of All Worlds I’d say this is a really innovative waffle creation that truly speaks to people like myself who want to try everything by just ordering one dish. The Best Of All Worlds Waffle is an amalgamation of four different waffle flavours - classic, chocolate, matcha and charcoal, topped with an ice cream of your choice. Being a waffle that’s freshly made when ordered, it does take a while to be served. I wouldn’t describe this as the best waffles I’ve had, as I’m more of a fan of crispy exteriors and soft fluffy waffles. However, Brunches cafe waffles are on the soft and chewy side. They weren’t undercooked, it’s just the way the batter is. I actually enjoyed them quite a bit although I still prefer crisp waffles overall. The chocolate waffle fared the best out of all the flavoured waffles, and I could actually taste the chocolate in it. There was a very slight hint of charcoal, like a teeny bitterness, in the charcoal waffle, but otherwise the charcoal and matcha waffles were just like the regular but with different colours. You get to pick a scoop of ice cream to go with your waffle, so I went for the pistachio as always. There was almost zero pistachio flavour, which was disappointing, but I guess the main draw of this dessert was the quad-flavour waffle. In addition, the charm of Brunches Cafe lies in its vintage and retro decor (which are all for sale!). Stepping into the place was just a trip down memory lane wherever you looked. From old-school gramophones, tea sets, toys, even repurposed oil drums, scooters and a vintage car. I would recommend this for the ambience though I haven’t tried enough of the food yet.

Salmon With Hollandaise Sauce and Mashed Potato This was a large salmon fillet with crispy skin and a perfectly cooked pink juicy center sitting on top a huge dollop of creamy, garlicky mashed potatoes ($18.90). It was drizzled in bright yellow hollandaise sauce and paired alongside arugula salad and grilled tomato. Technically it ticked all the boxes and was extremely filling and hearty for me, but somehow it just lacked that "wow" factor in terms of flavor and presentation. It was simple, fuss-free but lacking that complexity I expected for paying that price. I have to praise the ambience though, full of vintagey, retro fittings and a bustling crowd. It certainly made a unique, pleasurable spontaenous dining experience for my dining partner and I. There were lots of other delicious brunch, desserts and dinner options that I wouldn't mind dropping by to try if I was in the area again. 7/10

Spanish Omelette Had heard a lot about this place and finally got a chance to visit it. I loved the decor of the place (specially the seatable cars) and it gives a sense of comfy cafe tucked away in a corner. As for the food it was just ok. I ordered the Spanish Omelette which was well cooked but it lacked the the concoction somehow. And for the pomegranate juice it felt a little blunt.
