Brunch in the East

This bistro-carvery opened by the people behind One Man Coffee focuses on communal feasting over hearty roasts and comfort food. While roasts are the highlight, let's save that for another time because the time wasn't right and i wanted brunch. First up, my daily dose of coffee. Flat White ($5) with a dry crema. Nutty dark roast with a light sweetness at the end. A lean brunch menu, with a little more variety than One Man Coffee, is offered. The Paprika Candied Bacon Chips ($6) sounded interesting enough and reviews of it have been good. I do remember liking the toad in the hole at OMC pretty much and the Truffled Eggs Toast sounded like a good upgrade with the bacon chips as well so obviously i had to. Truffled Eggs Toast ($15) comes with bacon jam, cheddar, sous vide eggs, bacon chips and truffle oil. On hindsight, i think they forgot the bacon chips. I didn't check back with the servers because i thought the chips could be the little bits of bacon that were sprinkled. Disappointing. The brioche was bouncy and soaked up the egg yolk. I preferred the sunny side up at OMC instead of the sous vide eggs here as they were kinda underdone. The whites were still transparent and i don't think that was how it was supposed to be presented. As usual, loved the sweet bacon jam with a hint of spice. It tasted a bit like hae bee hiam! Truffle oil was well, just truffle oil. Next trip, i'll be back for the roasts which change every week. Portions are limited and specials written on the board. Do call ahead to book a roast in the event of them running out. Seats are limited as well (40 pax max).

Friday Dinner. Niceeeee

Visited on a Friday Night with 5 of my friends and myself. We decided to call beforehand to ask more about the menu and the staff recommended us a few dishes, mainly roast meats as they are a carvery and are mainly know for their roast meat. They are also known as a bistro that pairs "steak and coffee". Interesting concept I thought. Anyway, we decided to place a reservation, and boy was I glad we did! Upon our arrival , they were already 3/4 full and a few minutes later, they seemed to be having a full house and diners would have to queue for dinner. Lucky us.

We decided to have a Wagyu Beef Steak, 200 grams rib-eye cut, which according to the server was a portion for one. Wagyu was from Margaret River, Australia, Grade 7 Beef but it seems that they will alternate between the Australian Beef and Tajima Japan, Beef, from time to time.

The Wagyu was recommended to be done from the regular Medium Rare or to a Medium, to let the fat render and caramelised a little more and gives it a more beefy flavour. We decided to go with the advice of Medium and we can safely say, we really enjoyed it. Wagyu was tender and had a great mouth-feel as how good wagyu beefs are supposed to be like. It came with quite a huge portion of sides, which includes some side salad, nicely sweetened, bronzed, caramlised onions, the really smooth garlic confit and some chunky ,thick cut fries.

We also had a Bone-In Prime ribs, that weighed at 1kg, which was perfect as the price for the ribs are by weigh and it was $100/kg. We had this done medium rare and there was no going back. Really good flavours and seasoning. They had the same sides as the Wagyu, but with double the portion and we could easily share this within 3 medium eaters.

Lastly, we had the Carvers Plate for 2, was with one of their signature dish, that features a platter of roast meats. Meats featured on the plate would vary day to day, and the one we had was the roast chicken, roasted and marinated with lemon, sage and paprika powder. I enjoyed the refreshing citrus flavour in the chicken. There was also a Roast Pork Belly, roasted on white wine and orange. This was a killer and I really love how interesting the flavour was. Lastly, the bone-in gammon ham that was marinated in house, with some red wine and spices just reminds you of Christmas. Might wanna consider getting an entire leg of ham for the upcoming holidays. Portion was really big and again, easy to share among 3 medium eaters.

We had 3 glasses of their Housepour Cab Sauv to go with the beef and a glass of their Chardonnay to go with the roast meats.

We decided to have some coffee after the meal, since they have a high end espresso machine, the synesso, in store and they were having beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters. We decided to give it a shot and were really glad that we know we found a good Coffee place to hang out next time. The coffee was complex, yet delicate with distinct floral and fruity notes, very melbourne style. Really deliciou

Meat Feast

{Visit lazyfoodies.com for a full review with pictures}

There’s a new addition to the popular East Coast Road dining belt! It serves hearty dishes in a cosy and casual environment which makes it great for group dining.

Turkey + Porketta with Cracking 
When the roasts came out, it felt like Christmas all over again. Aromatically infused with thyme and rosemary and finished with a cider glaze, the whole turkey, paired with creamy mash as sides, can easily satisfy a party of five to six. Also known as ‘Porchetta‘, this is an traditional Italian dish not commonly seen Singapore. The accompanying crackling is so crispy it made loud snapping sounds with every cut.

Wagyu Beef Served with Caramelized Onions and Garlic Confit
This grade 6 ‘Wagyu’ is one of these specials and it was a generous portion for two. Juicy juicy beef went so well with the onions, garlic and rocket.

Too overpriced

● Communal truffle fries $10.90 I'm an avid fan of truffle fries, it's a must-order for me. When they served the fries I could judge by the texture if it's nice or not. it's literally soaked in the oil. I could barely taste the fries (too short, thin and meatless). The guy who came to check if everything was ok, I assumed he's the owner. He apologised and offered to serve a new bowl for us. We were to bloated from munching the oiled fries, rejected his offer. But anyhow plus point for service recovery. ● Paprika Bacon Chips $6.00 An innovative side dish, but to tough to chew. Taste slightly sweet and spicy. Overall not a memorable dish ● Apple crumbke cheesecake atop with vanilla icecream $12.90 i got a shocked when i received the bill... a slice of cake at 12.90?? Too overpriced T.T
