"Pancakes are my favourite brunch food, and I usually go for the berry ricotta-flavoured ones. I was surprised to see fluffy pancakes with an Asian twist with lemongrass used, though the ricotta flavour came on stronger. The sourness of the berries and strawberry jam offsets the sweet maple syrup."

"I cannot get enough of the battle of flavours in this dish. The salty chorizo goes really well with the Romesco sauce, while the truffle-infused leek and mushroom ragout makes a great pairing with poached eggs on buttered toast. And isn't it such such a visually appealing dish?"

"The innovative espresso ice cream with Bailey's foam is rich yet refreshing. The blueberries and pomegranate bits lift the mango chilli tea ice cream. Initially, I thought that the dessert would look better than it tasted, but it is an unexpected combination that works."

"This bowl of al dente wonton noodles would be totally up my alley if the char siew slices were fatter and juicier. I like that the noodles here have an old-school taste, like those served at Kok Kee Wanton Noodles in Lavender Food Hub."
