Fridays are never too early for a good brunch. For those that are looking for where to eat, @thepopuluscafe is a place that I’d recommend.

Known for its rice and grain bowls, delectable brunch items, soft serves and coffee, I had The Populous Scramble which is a scrambled egg, bacon, fresh herb melange and feta croissant.

Don’t be deceived by the picture. It’s actually very wholesome and filling. The croissant was flaky on the outside while soft and buttery on the inside. Scrambled eggs were creamy and not too jelak (rich) that makes it easy for one to finish the dish without much issue. Bacon used here is back bacon although I personally prefer streaky bacon.

After all these years it’s been in operation, I’m still impressed by the menu selection and the quality of food here.

The Sticky Date Pudding used to be TO DIE FOR. But over the course of a few months, it seemed to progressively get sweeter and sweeter. It's still good but I would definitely hope they turn down the sweetness. The food is decent though variety seems limited and nothing to shout about. Truffle fries are a good side with the overly sweet pudding.

spring onion & corn pancake🥞, signature crispy succulent fried chicken thigh fillet, hint of cumin & house special ranch dressing

Listed under @burpple’s HOT100 2019, @thepopuluscafe is a gastro-café along Neil Road, serving up contemporary progressive café nosh as well as specialty coffee☕️ roasted by @2degreesnorth. Be spoiled for choice with their extensive menu that includes all-day brunch items, mains, pasta, grain bowls, donburi rice bowls and desserts.

Good food, good coffee, good company! I will definitely be back to try their Signature Populus Sundae🍨 on Buttermilk Waffles too.

This features a sticky fluffy base of 4 mixed grains (brown rice, black rice, barley, quinoa), with earthy grainy sweet flavour.
.
The vegetable garnishes include juicy pickled cucumber, crunchy pickled ginger, and crunchy red cabbage salad. These have bright vegetal sour sweet herbal spice flavours.
.
But the stars are the seafood; tender moist roasted cod fish loin, bouncy soft seared scallops, and flaky shredded crab meat. The seafood holds robust sweet savoury salty smoky flavours, so fresh and clean-tasting.

Enjoyed every bite of this.

You're warned this has a preparation time of 20 minutes, which is a nice touch so customers can decide if they still wish to order this.
.
Looks are deceiving, this large pancake is super filling and is best shared; we noticed most diners couldn't finish it (we ended up packing the remainder for takeaway too).
.
The warm, soft, moist, fluffy buckwheat pancake has a grainy sweet flavour, but the main taste profile comes from the toppings of juicy strawberry slices, sticky blueberry compote, wobbly passionfruit curd, crispy cornflake crumbs, thick maple syrup, and edible flowers.
.
When combined, this steaming pan has a robust floral fruity tangy sour sweet grainy flavour, so delicious.
