The first time i spotted this new kid on the block was when we were on the way for tuina (Chinese deep tissue massage) session at Club Street. We were parked right in front of it. Back then, i merely thought, hey.. nice vibe there but very empty!
A couple of days later, raves reviews were everywhere and i knew i gotta try it pronto.
When the girlfriend came over for a short leisure + business trip last week, she told me to pick a nice place for our brunch. Immediately, i thought of this sandwich + cocktail bar. I tried making reservation for two but guess what, they don’t take reservation (unless you’ve got more than 8 pax going) but because it was a Saturday, the kind lady assured me that there will be plenty of seats available and she was right.

Because i was teeny weeny late due to my morning housework chores with the boys, the famished gf ordered a starter – Toasted ciabatta with dips $12, while waiting for me. First bite into the toasted ciabatta and we were sold. We loved the bread. It was really good. Crusty and a little soft in the inside, the ciabatta was toasted to perfection. We happily dunk our breads into the dips which varies from figs jam to coriander pesto and toasted garlic!
Then, the star of the day arrived – Pan seared lobster, avocado, yuzu mayo panini $28. It was orgasmic. Both of us went, “MMmmmmmmMMmmmmmm“, so so many times! Hahahaaa! Everything went so well together! The juicy lobster (gawwddd.. it was drip drop drip drop as i sank my teeth in and the gf couldn’t stop giggling at messy me!), the yuzu mayo.. oh the yuzu mayo.. and the avocado.. The whole combi totally rocked my boat.
Next, our Bacon, egg and maple butter panini $14 arrived. It doesn’t look much but boy oh boy, it sure packs a punch. I totally dig the maple butter panini. I ditched the bacon, ate the egg and vacuumed up the bread when the smart ass gf cleverly left the bread aside because we, erm.. were too stuffed. I mean, look at the amount of bread we had!! It was crazy!
Social, i’ll be back, promise. I still haven’t tried your off menu Bread & Butter Pudding which Miss Chan, the friendly owner, recommended. It looked absolutely divine! (both our neighbours ordered it)
In total, we paid $63.15 for two persons’ brunch. Once a while, it’s OKay laaaaaa, yeah? ;P
