Weekends always seem to be the best days ever in a week. As usual, I try to get my cafehopping-fix on Saturdays. My kind of relaxation and fully enjoying the beauty of work-life balance.
Headed down to Bugis for a (very late) brunch at the Symmetry Cafe. We intended to make reservations but somehow the hotline could not be reached when I tried calling on Saturday morning. Being really optimistic, we decided to try our luck and headed down. Reached the cafe around 2pm and it was so packed with people that there were 15 customers in the queue before us. Waited till 2.45pm and we finally got an outdoor table. However, the wait was totally worth it.
| Eggs Benedict $20 |
poached eggs, hollandaise, aged cheddar, onion, bacon
This is really the bomb! I like how the eggs are so wobbly and fluffy! Once you poke it gently with your fork and knife, the egg bursts open while oozing out slowly. The bacon is rather well cooked and is plain awesome with the poached egg. Don't you think that the eggs look cute, seated on the small round bread? One of the better Eggs Benedict that I've tried so far! The best is still from Choupinette ^^
| Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows $6.50 |
| Cappuccino $5.50 |
| Symmetry Eggs Sur Le Plat $22 |
Piquilio puree, paprika, pork sausage, garlic confit, brioche, creamed spinach, cheese, basil
Love the combination of the toast, wobbly eggs and the pork sausage, topped with a special kind of sauce. Place the ingredients on top of the toast and eat them together!
Had such a fulfilling brunch/lunch at the pretty cafe. It feels like overseas, where we get to dine outdoors and also do some people-watching. It isn't really warm as I thought it would be. Very breezy and the cafe is really considerate to place the big fans outside. We wanted to order their truffle fries but disappointingly, they forgot our order, and by the time we reminded them again, it was already their last order and they ran out of it :(
