So I was brought to this sleepy old housing estate just off Tiong Bahru for the best curry scissors rice ever. Ok caveat, this was actually my first time eating curry scissors rice so I dont really have anything to compare against but hey I have eaten curry, rice and pork before right.
Star of the day was this crispy crunchy pork pieces. Wonderfully spiced and seasoned and biting it yield a satisfying crunch.
And the rest of our table ( the wu xiang was an add-on from another story)
What I loved besides the pork - the lovely fragrant curry, the cabbage and runny sunny side egg (so perfect with the curry soaked rice)
I personally feel that the standards at Prive has dropped dramatically, sure it has a nice view but given its price-point, you would expect something better, especially with the intense cafe competition. The traditional big breakfast was very average, feels like something one can whip up at home. The baked eggs were basically raw eggs in tomato sauce and when we asked the waitress we were told "they are like this" ok...if you say so
Tried the Japanese purple sweet potato and miso chiffon cake, def a strange combination and an acquired taste ( as in I was the only one who liked it)
Was pretty darn excited when I saw L'Entrecote at the revamped Suntec City mall. No more queuing at Duxton! I had a pretty magical experience at the Duxton brunch, first time having steak frites (unlimited fries!)
Alas I wasn't able to mimic the experience here, perhaps it was the atmosphere - the Duxton outlet is small, crowded and very lively.
Skip the french onion soup - a little too watered down
Boy had the duck confit with rice. Was alright I guess, wasn't too interested when there was steak in front of me
So the main course to order - steak frites with a mountain of fries (seriously, would anyone go for another serving?) I like my steak thin and even better, pre-sliced (I'm lazy).
Of course, for this price ($29.90) you can't expect top quality meat but still rather enjoyable with the nice creamy brown herb sauce.
