Seafood linguine...not bad, but I think it can be better...

Truffle Wagyu Don

Second time having it and I'm proud to say that the quality is consistent! The Wagyu was tender pink on the inside and the truffle further amplified the flavour. I seem to be a sucker for any truffle and wagyu combination ๐Ÿ˜‚

Grain Bowls

Have always dislike grain bowls 'cause I'm the least healthy person out there. But as age catchs up, one can't afford to eat chicken wings for every meal and expect the waistline to miraculously not increase. The grain bowls here proved that healthy eating need not necessarily be a pain. Do give it a try!

Roasted Cod & Leek with Dill on mash.

Not as pleasing as the Wagyu Beef Grain Bowl, but healthy.

Scrambled Eggs On Point

$18.50. Scrambled eggs. One of the fluffiest and richest among sg cafes. Huge love.

Crab & Grain Morsel

If you like crab cakes fully of that crabby freshness and crispy breaded crunch, look no further as Populus has absolutely nailed it with this side dish which for some reason has been inconspicuous on its menu. It was so good I could not resist taking a pic every time I break open one of these crab nuggets, all moist and fresh inside and crispy outside, only to find the couple across the table whispering: " what is that? I want..."

Everything But Pulled Pork Was Great

Pulled Pork Grain Bowl ($19.50+)
You might think grain bowls don't fill you up but this was SOLID! The pulled pork was on the dry side, but everything else was delicious & roasted to good texture & flavour.

For Tasty Grain Bowls and Excellent Coffee

Located across Pinnacle @ Duxton (nearest MRT is Outram MRT Station), this gorgeous cafe decked out in hexagonal marbled tiles, rose gold finishings and modern wood panels serves tasty brunch items that we would definitely return for. Seats fill up pretty quickly on weekends, so swing by early with your friends. You must order the crowd favourite Populus Scramble ($17.50) that sees creamy scrambled eggs and feta chunks stuffed into a buttery croissant, spiced with sliced red chillies. Don't be fooled by the compact portion size, which belies how filling the combination is. For something healthier, go for the Pulled Pork Grain Bowl ($18), one of three grain bowls available. It's our favourite of the lot, considering how tender and well-seasoned the meat is. Served with a trio of quinoa, bulgur wheat and pearl barley, the well-balanced and nutritious bowl also comes loaded with lots of vegetables like mushrooms, tomatoes and pumpkin. End your meal with one of their excellent coffees made with a house blend of beans from El Savaldore, Guatemala and Brazil. If you like your coffee milky but strong, go for their Magic ($5.50). If not, ask the friendly baristas for recommendation on their Filter Coffee (from $6)!
Avg Price: $25 per person

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Populous scramble $18.50
Perfectly seasoned and creamy scrambled eggs, the 'fold' kind. Crispy multigrain toast. Nothing to fault but abit ex leh.

Curry Chicken Stew

Thai curry has a big influence on new item on Populus refreshed menu. The whole chicken thigh is roasted and not really stewed in the curry, unexpecting but different in a good way. The curry stew has lots ingredient such as tomato, potato, carrots, zucchini and edamame. Served with half a Turkish bread, which I was very tempted to ask for the other half, to soak up all the curry in the bowl, that would have been my legitimate reason. Satisfying alternative to brekkie options.

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! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Spring Pancake & Fried Chicken  $21

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

'Heirloom Rendang' Donburi ($20)

This dish had me at heirloom rendang (okay, maybe the recommended icon on the menu too ๐Ÿ˜…) 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.
