Located in Jun Xin Building on North Bridge Road, Rocky Maste serves great selection of American cuisine.

Today’s brunch location was Rocky Master, which has western type food. Their English breakfast was thoroughly unimpressive, from the chipolatas to the roasted tomato. They also called this an american breakfast, although i’ve never seen bacon like that in america. The lasagna was alright, but I detected a hint of ricotta, when it should be bechamel. I got a cup of iced chocolate with it though which was heavenly. They have these really mini thin crust pizzas and H said he approves. The coffee eclair was disappointing. Actually just by looking at the choux pastry one can tell it’s too stiff, but we manned up and ate it anyway just to see. The coffee cream filling was not bad, Would I go back? Just for the iced chocolate. And perhaps to try their other pasta dishes. The location is excellent if you're going to Bras Basah to buy books or to the National Library. However, about two doors down is entre nous, which has excellent galettes and crepes.
After a second aborted attempt to dine at nearby Saveur, we were searching for an alternative and found this. After discovering Rocky Master in a similar fashion when we randomly went past the Orchard Delfi one, we were happy to give it another shot. Looking at the menu it was tempting to have the pottie pie again, but in the spirit of trying something different I opted for the beef stew spaghetti. Although there was some repitition there as last time I'd had the beef stew pottie pie. The serving is generous particularly in the amount of beef, which is tender and falls apart upon softly touching with a fork. There are some carrots and the gravy also goes well as a sauce for the pasta. This is my kind of food ! The devils brew coffee is rather smooth and subtle, easy to drink. Overall another pleasing meal with Rocky Master which seems a good franchise for quality food at reasonable price, as they promote themselves.
Catching a show at Drama Centre and thought Rocky Masters will be a good place for a quick bite. We ordered:
1) Mushroom Soup - we ordered a large one to share and it arrived with 2 slices of garlic bread. The serving size could fight the Soup Spoon and I find their mushroom soup better than Soup Spoon's. It's got real chunks of mushroom bits in it and not watery like some canned versions. It's good enough to stand as a meal. Thumbs up.
2) Laksa - the bowl arrived with the ingredients very pretty arranged. But who cares about looks if the taste is bad right? Wonderful surprise as the gravy is lemak and the ingredients plentiful. Worth the $8.90 pricing. Very nice indeed.
3) Baked Spinach Macaroni - portion is large and again the ingredients of Spinach, carrots, onions and cheese were not stingy. First bite...I found it bland and hubby thought so too. With a few dashes of salt, it's much tastier. Good dish of you like spinach, carrots and cheese because it had loads of them. Hubby liked it ok but there's no meat so it was not great for him.
It was a nice place and we MAY pop in again to check out other stuff.
Located across the establish books hunting place in Singapore (Bras Basah), Rocky Master is a good place to sit down, relax and enjoy a good afternoon tea / coffee. We drop by at this place after spending our afternoon clamouring for books and past exam papers for the kids in Bras Basah.
Tried their Strawberry Cheesecake, priced at $5. It is portioned for single serving that goes well with you cuppa. Nice balance between cheese flavour and the sweetened strawberry + strawberry syrup on top. The texture also smooth and you can feel the strawberry exploding in your mouth when you bite on it.
They also serve their speciality coffee – Devil Brew, but it is too bitter for my liking. So stick with your cappuccino or latte if you like something milky. Service is warm, quick and efficient. They also serve quite extensive of local and western type of food, but I can't comment on this as I never try them before. :)
