Here’s one more place to note on your to-go list (yes, I believe everyone should have one!): The Missing Pan (for brunch next weekend)
Prices are on the higher side but why is it still packed all the time? Well, they obviously know what they are doing. Hearty portions, fresh ingredients, and a menu which spans beyond the usual big breakfast and eggs benedict.
Okie, I take back half my words. They do offer eggs ben but it’s with a special twist! Instead of normal smoked salmon, cubes of 45 degree sous vide salmon are paired with perfectly poached eggs instead. 62 degree eggs, 45 degree salmon, brilliant combination!
62 Degree Eggs Benedict ($22++)
smoked salmon, avocado, seaweed crumbs, sourdough, in-house hollandaise
For the carnivores (heard good feedback from the dining companions):
Pulled Pork Burger ($19++)
Beetroot and quinoa are a regular part of my daily diet so it’s great to see something familiar on the menu. Love the interplay of bitter, sweet and nutty flavours, plus the texture of the quinoa was just right (not overcooked and mushy)! Definitely the star dish of the day for me.
Beetroot Quinoa Salad ($12++)
candied beetroot, arugula, herby flatbread strips
K always say I’m wasting money whenever I order bircher muesli because it’s such a simple thing to make! True true, but whatever, I still like it! Not this though, unfortunately. Way too sweet and watery.
In-House Bircher Muesli ($10++)
yoghurt, muesli, granny smith, puffed brown rice, oats, maple syrup, nuts, cinnamon
Now, this french toast is really unique with a fabulous aroma and presentation (like the Taiwanese snack 棺材板, i.e. coffin bread). I wish there will be a seafood version soon!
French Toast Salpicon ($19++)
chicken, spinach and mushroom stuffed in French toast, banana nuggets, mixed berries, strawberry-smoked maple syrup
Within the french toast:
Other brunch cafes serve simple sweet treats such as cakes and tarts but plated “deconstructed” ones are quite rare right?
La Passion ($14++)
meringue, passionfruit, fresh fruits
Both desserts we tried looked very pretty! I prefer the la passion slightly more as it’s refreshing, light and tangy – ideal on a hot summer day!
Mela Con Formaggi ($14++)
granny smith, banana caramel sauce, chocolate soil, citrus mascarpone, parmigiano reggiano chips, homemade honeycomb
My thanks to Imen for arranging and Ivy for hosting brunch!
