Curbside Cafe & Wine Bar is a great place to stay and bond with your friends or just spend your weekends here after along busy weekdays. Curbside Cafe & Wine Bar is located in Nucleos and it serves one of a kind Modern American cuisine to enjoy.
Located at the Nucleos building at Biopolis, this is a hangout from the high IQ scientists that work around the area.
For breakfast today, I decided to check out this out of town haunt.
I started with the Corned Beef ($12) hash with cube potatoes. I liked that the cubed potatoes were a little larger as it helped to defray some of the saltiness form the corn beef. The poached eggs were also done well.
Not so good was the Scrambled Egg Croissant ($5) as the croissant was quite flat and not buttery enough. I added a side of Smoked Salmon ($5). Here the smoked salmon was served in a thick slice cut instead of the usual thinly sliced pieces, which I felt made it harder to pair with the eggs evenly.
Better was the Chili Cheese Dog ($10) which had strongly spiced tomato based minced beef with a nice melt in the mouth oozing cheese from the sausage.
The Flat White was pretty good though. I liked that it had a strong natural coffee flavour and was not as milky.
Overall, expect simple food to go along with that good morning coffee.
I am not too famliar with the cafe culture but the overall experience once again convinced me of the extremely slim hopes of finding good food in café.
One can spare Spam Chips ($9) the accusation of being too salty since it's churned from the can (blame the manufacturer) but not for the Corn Beef Hash ($12), a brunch item that consists of salt-cured minced beef with two poached eggs. Even the accompanying sourdough were unable to divert the attention away from the sodium. The half-hearted Cheesy Fried Chicken ($18) which resembled the standard chicken cutlet set from the western stall at hawker centers, failed to impress with an awkward cheese blanket. The chilli powder did not impart any spice to lift up the fried fries in any way. The Cheeseburger ($18), an 180g beef patty on bun, remained dry and lifeless even though there was some melted cheese concealed within the meat. The homemade buffalo sauce for the Buffalo Wings ($12) had a lingering aftertaste of spice but made the wings too cloying to encourage a second piece.
