Something as simple yet as good, Morning Goodness + Mashed Avocado from Tianns Bakery. Their slices of Paleo bread are amazing, it’s soft, fragrant and nutty. They also whipped up a nasty good scrambled eggs, it’s well-seasoned, buttery and runny.

& these combination goes really well together! Not forgetting that pretty good cuppa too.

Tried out Squid Game from Free the Robot’s brunch menu. Very intriguing and refreshing option. Grilled squid served with chincalok taste alike sauce, a little spicy, a little tangy bringing out the umaminess. It comes with a buttered thick brioche, fresh greens and a twin sunny side up. A brunch item packed full of flavors!

& if you’re both a matcha and coffee lover, go for their dirty matcha! It’s really good. Their matcha is a blend of different grades of matcha, giving you the all rounded flavors. You taste both the bittersweet matcha and aromatic espresso.

Start your weekend right or end your weekend right!

Beside a IG worthy place, we got to give some credits to the food Knock Knock cafe serve!

We had their Grilled Beef Steak taco, Tiger Prawn ‘Hei Bi Hiam’ Aglio Olio, Seafood ‘laksa’ pasta, Honey Thyme Grilled Chicken and their Knockknock brunch. The prices ranges from about $17-$20++ which is quite decent given their portion. It’s about a 5min walk from kallang mrt. If you have Burpple beyond, then it’s even a sweeter deal because it’s 1-1 for their mains and pasta!

Some of their flavors creations are interesting too like their Grilled Steak taco which is served with peanut sauce. It’s a combination of korean with local style that has that sweet nuttiness flavor. Their pasta flavors of hae bi hiam and laksa are well intensified, and probably a little too much. The giam giam and aromatic of hae bee hiam and coconutiness of the laksa is quite bright in the dish! If cutdown a little it will be just nice. Their grilled chicken is pretty much on point, grilled to perfection leaving it tender and juicy.

A quaint cafe place worth a little checking out!

Rather newly open pretty cafe decked in coat of pastel colors, with an interesting concept of multi-cuisine under one roof. It serves korean delights, thai delight and some local delights. We ordered their Crab Meat Omelette Fried Rice and their Blue Pea Nasi Lemak. Portion is quite generous but the wait can be quite long. Quality of food wise, it’s quite decent just that the chilli sauce were a little on the saltier side. Their fried rice is fluffy and fragrant while their fried chicken wing from the nasi lemak is crispy and juicy! Not a place I’ll keep returning unless I happen to be in that area.

Milligram has a medley selection of brunch, pasta with an Italian touch and heathy grain bowls for you to choose from.

If you’re not a fan of gnocchi, try their Prawn & Chorizo Orecchiette ($18.50). Pasta is cooked to al dente with a magical sprinkle of bread crumbs. The Neapolitan sauce was on the slightly richer end with a good pack of flavors between the savory giam-ness from the chorizo and the sweet crunchy prawns.

The Breakfast Works is recommended by them and highly recommended! Both the portion and variety is worth the price tag of $24. Love how their brioche despite thick, is toasted to golden brown on the outside and still staying soft and fluffy. Breakfast plate was overloaded with all things savory. A great way to start your day with and welcome the weekends soon! Deals made sweeter with Burpple beyond 1-1!

The duck leg was pan-seared to golden on their skin leaving it crispy while the meat was tender and tears apart easily. Flavor of the dish was well balanced between the citrusy orange sauce and savory brown sauce. Mash was buttery and creamy smooth. Complete your dining experience with their Taiwanese Chicken Bites! It’s amazingly tender, juicy and addictive!

Not only am I loving the loaves from Bread Yard, but loving their brunch food too! Went for their Steak & Egg Bowl. Except for their steak that is a little bit on the chewier side (but they kind of make up for it by slicing it thinly), the bowl is well packed with flavors that marries well together. A little savory with some truffle fragrance and nutty note to it. The bowl is good on its own, but the Garlic Bread stick has definitely complemented it well! The texture is like a mix of pretzel & puff pastry sort, with a nice crunch to it!

It’s being a while since I’ve visited a cafe with a brunch menu that sets themselves apart from the norm. Tried this Nori, Avo & Eggs. A simple dish with smashed avocado spread across the toasted ciabatta toast and topped with crispy kale has got the dish’s texture and flavors in checked. Scrambled eggs was served separately retaining the crispness and light flavors of the toast. .

Do make a reservation before heading down! It gets pretty crowded during the brunch hours.

Another of my find suitable for working purposes. There’s a wide variety of food choices to choose from and they serve pretty decent food. Chef’s Special Assam Seabass with Rice totally bring out the local flavors. Sweet and sour flavored gravy with that layer of crisp seabass skin atop the firm seabass, was really good. Good contrast of color and texture all in that one bowl.

Ps/ they have drinks as interesting as teriyaki avocado latte! Game to try?

Beside good WiFi connection and decent PowerPoint access, Wakey Wakey do serve pretty decent Grain Bowls and Coffee! Fresh and crisp veggies and a bowl full of flavors definitely makes healthy eating enjoyable. Though the texture of sous vide tenderloin could be done better but given the nature of a cafe, it’s still a job done well!

TGIF! What about some brunch at Merci Marcel? Went for their Marinated Crab Tartine with avocado and sourdough ($19). Enjoyed the added savoriness and sweetness from shredded swimmer crab tartine. For the branch at club street, they serve the basics and classics of brunch with added touch of french - charcuterie, cheese & wine. Their Ravioles de Royans is another not to be missed dish! It’s a french dumpling pasta filled with cheese! Its an ironic cheesy dish that keeps you wanting for more. It’s best enjoyed while it’s piping hot!
