Breakfast Sammy ($10) Where has Korio been all my life! Hot damn, was this Breakfast Sammy one of the best morning pick-me-up I’ve ever had. Brioche toasted perfectly, meaty slabs of luncheon meat, and don’t get me started on that amazingly addictive and eggy sauce gribiche. The menu might be small, but these sandwiches got SOUL. 🙌

Grilled Haloumi Sandwich ($13) For those CBD folks who are still working in office and not on WFH, check out Korio at Far East Square! They do good grilled toasties and doughnuts 🥪🍩 ! They have a few staples and have a special sandwich every day of the week. On Tuesdays, it’s haloumi sandwich ($13). I have a soft spot for haloumi and was immediately sold by the daily special. Grilled haloumi, rockets, tomatoes and caramelised onions, smouldered with a homemade sauce are enclosed within two toasted slices of sesame sourdough. It’s hard to get a good haloumi in Singapore. The haloumi was chewy and not rubbery but it could’ve been a bit softer and springier. What made this sandwich shine were the caramelised onions and the homemade sauce which tasted akin to a special blend of mayonnaise. This helped to mask any tinge it smell although the haloumi smell is fairly mild. I’ll be back to try the rest of the sandwiches and the doughnuts.

Definitely one of the cheapest Grilled Cheese ($8) sandwiches around — with quality, that is. Korio’s take sees nutty slices of really good whole-wheat sourdough, holding together some oozy cheddar, American cheese, and caramelised onions. They’ve got the stringy, melty cheese part down pat, I love their sourdough as well, and that’s basically the makings of a really great grilled cheese sandwich already. I do wish there was a little more oomph in the caramelised onions though: either an intense savouriness (think French onion soup), or a slight touch of acidity and sugar (balsamic caramelised onions maybe?). Would’ve added a lot more complexity to this!

Wagyu Beef Don 4⭐ Craving for egg benedict and found this cafe in burpple app which serves egg benedict. Moreover there's 1 for 1 in the burpple app and furthermore there's 35% booster cashback this week. The egg benedict is on point but I was served the bacon instead of salmon which I have ordered. They took back the dish and served the correct order. WB ordered mushroom bacon aglio olio which is spicy for me but he loves it. @pinky_kitty_snow ordered the wagyu beef don which is not bad but Waa Cow has set the bar too high. After the 1 for 1 and 35% booster, a main and a drink cost about $7 which is a steal. #Oberstrasse #BennysEgg #MushroomBaconAglioOlio #WagyuBeefDon #Cappuccino #CinnamonChaiLatte

Tonkatsu Sando I thought BAC had a lean mains menu, but they actually serve a decent number of appetising sandwiches, pastas, salads and French toasts. We ordered the tonkatsu sando out of the three sandwich choices available. Food was served really quick, and everything was toasty and crisp! The pork cutlet is really crunchy, plus it’s got not too much fatty meat in it which I really appreciated. I think the meat to bread ratio is great, plus they weren’t stingy with the tonkatsu sauce and shredded cabbage either. My only gripe is that the pork cutlet coating was quite oily, but that’s fried food right? This sandwich comes with gherkins (not a fan), and French fries. The fries here are good too! Crispy enough and well-seasoned. While I would probably want to order something else to try (pasta!) the next time I’m here, I definitely wouldn’t mind stealing some bites off a dining partner (once social distancing and non-sharing of food items is safely behind us).

Shiro Kuma Shaved Ice (Matcha) What’s a trip to Baristart Coffee without ordering their famed ultra-kawaii shaved ice? We ordered the matcha version, and almost couldn’t bear to pour it over the ice bear’s puffy cloud-like head. But pour we did, and we watched its head stain green under the watchful eyes of our smartphone video recorders. While I would’ve preferred the matcha (and probably all the pour overs too) to be less sweet, I guess it would suit an average person’s sweet tooth. The shaved ice wasn’t ultra fine like bingsu. It was more reminiscent of kopitiam ice kacang. Overall, this dessert is something you’d probably order for the gram as it’s nothing spectacular tastewise. It’s made a simple ingredients like an assortment of canned fruits, vanilla ice cream (nose), chocolate (eyes, nose), mini Marie biscuit (ears) and shaved ice. You can choose which flavour you want for the pour over, with the classic choice being Hokkaido milk. I wouldn’t order this again unless I wanted to post something nice on Instagram, but I’d try to visit again soon to try their mini kuma parfait in a glass!

Best Cream Puff I’ve Had I now know why the cream puffs at Baristart Coffee keep receiving good reviews. They are indeed very good. I’m not a fan of cream puffs as they tend to be too sweet for my liking, but the version at BAC won me over. It’s got a crisp, layered exterior that crackles satisfyingly when you slice it, and there’s a generous filling of thick luscious cream that isn’t overwhelmingly sweet. Despite how good it tastes, it does get jelak after a while. I can’t imagine finishing the whole puff by myself, so this is good for sharing with a dining partner or two.

John Lemon ($14) The buttermilk waffle was super crispy but I can’t exactly call it a waffle, it was almost like a softer version of a biscotti? It was not fluffy at all and pretty dry, so thank goodness for the ice cream which was weird bc it was cold with no vanilla bean flavour, but the combi was better than eating them separately. The thyme crumble and lemon curd w passion fruit purée were nice, but those were the only redeeming factors.

Fowl Play ($15) [Foreground] & Fun Guy ($14) [Background] These were decent, plus points for the cheese pull for both. But the bread was just white bread toasted till it was rather dry, which made it crispy but ended up tasted dehydrated. Fowl Play’s chicken wasn’t dry, and the ranch sauce wasn’t cloying! Pickle was extremely salty. I preferred Fun Guy. Their balsamic on rocket was good but the poached egg’s yolk was half runny half fully cooked :( Mushrooms (shiitake + shimeiji) were nice! I wouldn’t pay full price for these tho, and while the service staff were nice and attentive, the food took way too long to come.

Was Good!!! (But Overpriced, Very) Was goooooooood (but the waiting time was sooooooooo long!!! We were the first customers to enter - and our food only arrived after 30minutes. It was honestly yummy but really over priced if not for Burpple :’( after all, its 2 pieces of toasted bread with very little fillings.. Even with Burpple, I felt that it was not that worth considering the ingredients going into it (items were about $16 before 1-for-1).
