While this modernised version may not appease lovers of strictly traditional fried carrot cake, XYT Chai Tow Kway ($16) is a somewhat deconstructed take on the iconic Singaporean dish, with scrambled eggs, cubes of moreish crispy-edged homemade radish cake and radish slices (staying true to the main ingredient here I see).

In my opinion, the trio of spicy minced pork, dried shrimp and XO sauce takes centre stage here, with a hint of sweetness as well, giving the eggs additional oomph. This is a dish easy on the eyes, and also on the palate; an interpretation I can totally swing with. ☺

Arguably their most popular brunch dish, the Unagi Benedict ($16), consists of a low temp. egg drenched in yuzukoshô hollandaise with a slab of gorgeously glazed unagi (the soft, fatty kind) on top, sandwiched between fried mantou. Sounds like a perfect combination, but while I liked the Japanese-esque flavours used, the richness got rather overwhelming. Quite an acquired taste, I guess???

Came with a side of fried prawn & potato chunks (like croquettes), as well as a light ebiko-flecked kewpie mayo salad which helped to balance out the greasiness.

Get this to share (trust me on this) and with a drink from their vast selection of cocktails, mocktails, coffee and the likes on standby, as this tends to get very jelat, with some possibly experiencing an 'oily aftertaste'.

Second time here and this crispy mantou and Unagi combination is still the bomb 😻 the side potato/crab mayo is a welcome side

Enjoying weekend brunch with a twist. A step away from the usual cafe fare, Xiao Ya Tou jazzes up some local favourites for brunch.

Like this take on one of my all time favourite dishes — the simple Chee Cheong Fun is served with juicy, tender dongpo beef and home-made hoisin sauce on the side then sprinkled with shallots and toasted sesame. This will always be a comfort dish to me.

Weekend brunch at Xiao Ya Tou is available on Saturdays & Sundays 10:00am – 3:30pm. You can even order from their range of locally inspired cocktails if you're yearning for an early drink.

Favoured their Hokkien Mee over this, but this Char Kuay Tiao did not fare badly, just a personal preference of mine. It comes with a pretty hefty price tag, tho they kinda make up for it with their ingredients. Just look at their oysters !

Now, $16 for a plate of Hokkien Mee is slightly overpriced, but they make up for it with their ingredients! Besides the seafood, the Hokkien Mee also has a distinct wok hei smell, which makes the dish even more enjoyable

Not the most flattering photo, but man, Sous-vide for more than 30 hours, the melt in your mouth ribs seemed to be marinated in a char siew-esque sauce. Every single slice was mouthwateringly tender and marbled with fat. It has a charred crust and is accompanied by sesame butter. The cucumbers serve as a great palate cleanser to make sure that you enjoy every bit of the dish right down to the very last mouth.

mixed with pepper spiced lamb and pickled Chilli yogurt that worked surprisingly well

Love the twice cooked angus short ribs that melts in your mouth 😍😍

Xiao Ya Tou ambience is really nice with Chinese lanterns & umbrellas on the ceiling of the restaurant. Really friendly staff & food nicely executed! Price range is however a bit on the high side for food like Hokkien mee & char kuey tiao. Hokkien mee taste really good but wouldn't be somewhere I will frequent due to pricing. Chope is having a promo code for free Hokkien mee with minimum spending so remember to book from that app! ;)

Dessert from the weekend brunch menu.

Smooth coconut custardy "tau huay" topped with ice cream, cookie crumbles and tapioca pearls (similar to those in bubble milk tea!). Such an interesting combination.

Tastes exactly how you would imagine! Unagi is flavourful and rich, fried mantou is crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside! A very rich dish, so is recommended to share! I had 1 out of the 2 benedicts and felt just right!

I was really impressed with this dish because I could actually taste the mentaiko in the cheese sauce! A lot of places lie when they say mentaiko in their menu but it only appears as a drizzle on the dish. This was a whole plate of mentaiko creamy goodness with chunks of spam in it.
