Good grub!

I have been wanting to come here for the longest time and today, I finally made it. The rain in the morning meant that not as many people were out and about and that helped to reduce the number of people queuing for tables so when we got there, we got the last table for two immediately. That was a relief. It was about 11 a.m. on a Sunday morning and there were several families with their children there. It was clearly a weekend outing for the family, with scooters, strollers and small bicycles in tow.

We ordered from the weekend brunch menu. The portions were not large; in fact we had to order some more food after the first order came. Originally, we had wanted to share the breakfast set which turned out to be just enough for one person. However, the food was of decent quality and was not overly salty. We chose beef sausage in the breakfast set and it was a decent sausage, not overly processed nor overly salty as some sausages can be. The truffled egg cocotte eggs were like two half-cooked eggs in a little ceramic bowl. I was surprised that the French had their version of half-cooked eggs — similar to how we have our half-boiled eggs for breakfast — . The eggs were a good size and the flavours were really natural.

The cutlery that we were given were WMF ones and the plates were fine China. This was the first place that I had been to that used such fine cutlery and crockery and the food did not cost an arm and a leg. The scenery was especially nice. I’d certainly come back here again to chill. This place opened their doors in May 2013, with a belief that they only serve to customers what they would serve to their own families. I reckon that’s a good belief to have for a food business.

Grub Breakfast set with tea on the side. Toasted focacia, scrambled egg, portabello mushroom, side salad and a choice of pork or beef sausage.

Extra side order of focacia bread with a coffee latte.

Truffled egg cocotte. This is a French dish of half-cooked eggs. This was a simple dish, both in the way it is cooked and in the taste.

The restaurant is within Bishan Park. The stream here has been naturalised. It is part of a river. This park is nice as it was built much earlier and it is spacious. The design is more unique and it doesn’t look similar to some of the other parks that are more recently built.
