Populus Cold Brew

Populus Cold Brew ($4)

Yay, got my cold brew fix for the weekend. This is good! Not too sweet nor too milky! 😋

'Heirloom Rendang' Donburi ($20)

This dish had me at heirloom rendang (okay, maybe the recommended icon on the menu too 😅) and I'm really glad I ordered this.

The beef slabs fell apart effortlessly and the delectable gravy drenched the Japanese rice underneath too. I liked the Peranakan achar on the side, as well as the contrasting relief provided by the slaw. Can't really say the same for the zuke pickles, so I will probably request to omit or substitute it with the zippier red cabbage and apple slaw next time.

Roasted Chicken Grain Bowl

It was a lot of flavours in a bowl. Give it a try!

For Nutritious Grain Bowls in a Gorgeous Setting

Despite new competition sprouting along Neil Road and Everton Park, this cafe decked out in beautiful tiles and classy rose gold furnishings is holding its ground with satisfying mains and good coffee. While the menu at Populus Coffee and Food Co. features a good list of delicious mains like the Rendang Donburi ($20), it also has a small section dedicated to healthier grain bowls that is easy to miss. Of the three bowls available (all have the same vegetable toppings but different proteins and bases), we enjoyed the Pulled Pork Grain Bowl ($18) the most. The meat is tender and well-seasoned, sitting on a bed of quinoa, bulgur wheat and pearl barley, and lots of vegetables like mushrooms, tomatoes and pumpkin. It is a well-balanced, nutritious bowl that will fill you, and is available throughout the week for both lunch and dinner. Swing by for a quick lunch with colleagues, or come in the night with your friends and catch up in this cosy space.

Healthy Brunch

Roast chicken grain bowl with lots of veggies. The plate was surprisingly good.

Christmas Day Brekkie

Feasted too much and tried to order something 'light', or so I thought.
'Scrambled eggs on croissant' and truffle fries sounded kinda mild right? Wrong, they were huge and so my hubb and kiddo ate them instead!
Love big portions nonetheless 😍
Lovely tea, too 🎄🎉

Roasted Cod & Soba Noodle Salad (SGD $24) @ The Populus.

Chilled buckwheat soba noodles, crunchy edamame, marinated mushrooms, pickled microgreens, and a sweet salty roasted cod loin that is beautifully oily.

Dressed in a tangy, sour savoury lime and sesame sauce. Clean, tasty!

Cold Drip Coffee (SGD $6) @ The Populus.

Smooth, light, and refreshing, this cool brew has a medium acidity. Sweet then bitter with a short finish.

Deluxe Seafood Linguine With Boston Lobster (SGD $38.50) @ The Populus.

Doesn't look like much, but this plate of al-dente pasta and fresh seafood is outstanding.

Chunks of fresh crab meat, plump scallops, meaty sweet lobster tail, in a rich seafood sauce. Shiok max.

Pulled Pork Grain Bowl (SGD $19.50) @ The Populus.

Utterly delightful and vibrant meal.

Base of quinoa, bulgar wheat, and pearl barley, topped with a vibrant medley of furikake baby corn, red cabbage & apple slaw, roasted zucchini, sauteed cherry tomatoes, mixed mushrooms, and roasted butternut squash.

Finished with slow cooked pulled pork that is moist and savoury. Happiness in a bowl.

Strawberry & Elderflower Sundae

Strawberry & Elderflower Sundae ($14)

My kind of Christmas tree 🌲! Smooth Tahitian vanilla ice-cream, strawberry sauce, elderflower jelly, fresh strawberries 🍓pieces, pistachio crumb decorated with sumac flowers and pomegranate. Light, floral, and refreshing. Great after a heavy meal! My only gripe is those pomegranate bits. Never could get used to the bite.

❣️Weekend brunch date at a bustling, geometrical modern cafe ❣️
Top: Wagyu Beef Grain Bowl - tasty Flavours, beef was done perfectly 
BR: Roasted cod with soba noodles and edamame beans -  again nice blend of Flavours that were sweet, savoury and refreshing.

Cod was lightly seasoned and blended well with overall dish though it did taste a tad overdone.
With one interesting Gibraltar coffee drink which really is a flat white with less milk. #weekendtreats #burpple #cafehunting
