Beef steak (180g), teriyaki onions, king oyster mushrooms, egg yolk, nori, Japanese rice

I didn’t try this but my dad enjoyed it, and it smelt p good. The beef, onions, and mushrooms were flavourful, with the yolk adding more richness.

Eggplant, tofu, king oyster mushrooms, crispy enoki, nori, togarashi, japanese rice

I only had a nibble of this but flavours were quite nice, ingredients were tasty. There’s soft, there’s crisp, I liked the different textures. However this small bowl is rather overpriced. I get it, cafe prices are typically like that. But at other cafes/restaurants the portions are better.

Chicken & gruyere veloute, oyster mushrooms, herbed potatoes, spinach, capers, puff-lets

I found it very average, it wasn’t bad but I found the dish quite disjointed - just felt like different ingredients that happen to be in the same bowl of veloute. Chicken was soft, mushrooms tasty. Spinach was average and I’m not a fan of veloute I guess, it’s too thin to be gravy and also isn’t soup/broth. Pufflets were airy and not crisp. I saw a nearby table being cleared and all 3 pufflets were left uneaten. Overall would not reco.

Cheddar & chive scramble, aioli, back bacon, caramelised onions, focaccia, tater tots

Not bad, eggs were at a nice done-ness, soft and not overcooked, and I liked the sweet caramelised onions. Focaccia was soft, tater tots were crisp.

However at other places I could get similar sandwiches that are tastier with a lower price point.

I quite liked Columbus before their menu revamp, but now the new menu options aren’t as attractive and most are rather overpriced, in my opinion. A pity! Lunar is already gone so the only place with the kinda ‘original’ menu is Atlas. Please don’t change the menu at Atlas, this is a sincere plea 🥲

These mini cookies were indeed chunky and fresh! We got the double choc with macadamia, and it was crunchy outside softer inside, enjoyed it!

The hojicha was also p nice - milky but with a distinct hojicha taste and aroma.

Was not bad, pretty earthy and mushroomy, texture was fine too! Overall, while decent, I wouldn’t come if they weren’t on burpple beyond, as I could get an authentic Italian meal at a similar price point.

I’m personally not a fan of vongole because it feels like pasta in soup to me, so I can’t write a fair review other than the fact that the broth was rather 鲜甜 and that my friends seemed to like it.

Prawns, squid, baby scallops, mussels were decently cooked. Toppings were fine but I didn’t like the thin crust of bread dough, it felt like an undeveloped pizza. I guess it’s supposed to be this thin, but in future I wouldn’t order it if I saw such a dish on the menu.

Texture of tagliatelle was a bit like meepok, and was a bit soft. I tried this dish at eleven strands (their sister cafe) and wasn’t a fan of the chopped up prawns, but thankfully the prawns were left whole, they were firm and not overcooked. Pesto sauce was alright, tasty enough tho not particularly outstanding.

Not bad, was crisp and didn’t get soggy easily. Kombu seasoning was tasty, but the truffle wasn’t v strong.

This was alright, the cod is quite firm and wasn’t dry, but I wouldn’t order it again - it didn’t feel very cohesive. I did like the housemade dill tartare and the buttery brioche bun. They gave quite a meagre amount of salad.

Classic type of brunch fare, but it was done well. The sous vide pulled pork shoulder was moist and flavourful, probably bc of the savoury sweet house bbq sauce, and wasn't salty! It went well with the scrambled eggs, english muffin, and hollandaise sauce. They gave maple bacon too but it was like 2 miserable pieces in total so it didn't make much of an impact. Honestly quite pricey but it was a nice dish so I’m glad I tried it.
