Believe it or not, this is my first time to Starter Lab ever since I heard of them (which was when they opened) ๐Ÿ˜…

On a rare off-day, this bustling bakery sits along an old neighbourhood but serves up simple yet tasty combinations of toasts.

With their assorted of bread options, ranging from seeded to fruity ones, you can choose to dine in or take-away your loaf choices.

Their Honeyed Mascarpone is made of rosemary toast (recommended pairing) topped with homemade mascarpone, honey from The Rare Honey Co, crushed walnuts & black sea salt. What you get is a sweet yet savoury combination of flavours, with an added crunch from the crushed walnuts. It's so so tasty & can be washed down with a side of white coffee.

We pre-ordered @starterlab.sg awhile back when Phase 2 had first started! We got their open-faced posh toasts and sandwiches to go for a weekend brunch!

First up we had the ๐Œ๐š๐ฌ๐œ๐š๐ซ๐ฉ๐จ๐ง๐ž, ๐–๐š๐ฅ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ & ๐‡๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ฒ (๐‘๐จ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฆ๐š๐ซ๐ฒ) $๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’, which was generously lathered spread on the toast. The drizzle of honey really brought out the mascarpone, which was light and creamy. We really enjoyed the contrast in flavours and gobbled it up super quickly hehe. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Next, we had the ๐’๐“๐€๐‘๐“๐„๐‘ ๐‹๐€๐ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐‚๐ก๐ž๐ž๐ฌ๐ž (๐‘๐จ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฆ๐š๐ซ๐ฒ) $๐Ÿ๐Ÿ—. Stuffed thick with 3 different cheeses (swipe to the last pic for the cross section), this was one of the best grilled cheeses we had!

Overall, we really enjoyed the toasts butโ€ฆ the price tag was a biiiiit steep. Is it really worth paying $19 for a grilled cheese? #lifequestions I guess we might return if weโ€™re craving their sandwiches.

Liked this a lot because of the generous amount of honey ๐Ÿ˜Š

Growing up in SF (aka in my humble opinion the โœจCAPITALโœจ of sourdough) I can state really confidently that Starter Lab does sourdough the BEST in Singapore. Although their products are definitely on the pricier side, they are really able to deliver in terms of tanginess and their crumb has a great moist texture too. As someone who makes sourdough at home, I always have a tough time to achieve the tang in Singapore and will always come here for my bread fix when I miss the tang.

Pictured here are two of their tartines. The mascarpone tartine with the honey and bee pollen was amazing but being more of a savoury person I loved the ricotta tartine with roasted tomato and the balsamic vinegar glaze because it has that balance of rich, tang, sweet, and savoury. But both are definitely amazing in their own right.

With the bakery craze of 2020, sourdough and the like are hitting homes like hot cakes. The sourdough here has great flavor and depth and is well made. The cheese doesnโ€™t feel too heavy with the drizzle of honey over and lots of crunch. My only gripe is that they over toasted the bread making the edges almost impossible to chew or bite off.
Monster has always been a big fan of sourdough
