Located at Yong Siak Street, Forty Hands serves Western breakfast and lunch and their specialties are their aromatic house blend coffees and chewy fat hot dogs.
40 Hands; a cafe that is located in Yong Siak Street (Tiong Bahru). I was there on a Saturday afternoon for brunch, the place was really crowded with young adults chilling and enjoying their cup of coffee. The layout of the cafe is kinda small, but still manage to get a seat. Their brunch didn't not impress me much, honestly it actually disappoints me. Their truffle fries was only so so. The only thing which I felt was nice is the cup of ice coffee I ordered, good coffee fragrance and rich in the taste!
I will always order their ice mocha to go with the expensive tau sar pau! I love it becoz of the tau sar pau, it's just so nice to have for afternoon tea break and just chill. Although it's a lil small in terms of space for per table but still it's rather relaxing if you seat at the back of the shop, less noise as well. No regrets for sure!
It's Common Man coffee but in Tiong Bahru. The coffee is of course very good. The food menu is smaller and more ecclectic than at Common Man but still tasty and far more reasonably priced. It's not a big place so seating is tight and you may be uncomfortable if you're seated in the open-air section in the back. Still, not a bad place to swing by for a quick weekend meal.
This used to be my go to brunch place but lately the ambience and coffee is unbearable. The food is still great, particularly the big boy breakfast set. The coffee is not drinkable. If you get espresso or long black you will notice the very sour taste. I guess they source good exotic beans but they just don't know how do process them. The place itself still has a nice feel if you manage to get a table inside. The outside sitting area at the back is very humid (amazing how they made Singapore more humid).
