How The Heck Does Eggs ‘n Things Make That Insane Whipped Cream On Them Pancakes?

James Chan

Eggs ‘n Things

Following their recent opening at the new wing of Plaza Singapura, with a name like Eggs ‘n Things, I couldn’t help but feel excited at the prospect of a high protein meal.

Eggs ‘n Things decor

The eatery couldn’t be any prettier with a strong Hawaiian theme evident to anyone who walks by. Instagram feeds are definitely going to explode with their pictures for sure. If you haven’t heard of them, let’s just say they’re really popular in Harujuku, Tokyo Japan.

Eggs ‘n Things Omelette
The Food

All their ingredients arrive fresh from Japan and they make most things in-house. I’m told that Japanese eggs are the best as they are tastier and a whole lot richer compared to our local eggs. You can easily spot a Japanese egg by their orange-hued egg yolk. Slurps.

Eggs ‘n Things Surf and Turf and Eggs

Meats & Eggs – Surf ‘n Turf ‘n Eggs, $27.90

You can choose how you want your eggs done but I went with scrambled. Nothing really stood out for me other than the prawns being a tad saltier than I would like them to be. It’s also the priciest item on the menu (probably because they use organic beef).

Eggs ‘n Things Spinach and Bacon Eggs Benedict
Eggs Benedicts – Spinach ‘n Bacon, $19.90

Just like that, a star is born. Everything about this dish is PERFECT. The bagel (made in-house), the pasteurized poached eggs with rich orange colored yolk and the bits of bacon strategically placed in the spinach. Wow. It’s a real eye opener and that’s saying something considering my Chinese heritage (I have small eyes).

Eggs ‘n Things Potato and Bacon Omelette
Omelets – Potato, Bacon ‘n Cheese, $19.90

This pales in comparison to the Spinach ‘n Bacon Eggs Benedict. There’s no going back after you’ve had a taste of heaven. I’m pretty sure this is why this dish didn’t sit very well with my palette. I felt it was a little dry to be honest. For the exact same price, I recommend the Eggs Benedict for sure.

Eggs ‘n Things Strawberry Pancakes
Pancakes – Fresh Strawberry, Whipped Cream and Macadamia Nuts, $19.90

Oh my goodness. Definitely the winner of the day (it was a close fight with Eggs Benedict). What won my heart or stomach rather was surprisingly the Whipped Cream. It was light, refreshing and just highly addictive. The pancakes themselves were fluffy and one of the better pancakes I’ve had in my life. If you want to take a picture of this dish in all its glory, you’d want to do it immediately as soon as it arrives. The tower of whipped cream loses its structural integrity really quickly (it starts collapsing in less than 5 minutes). This is a MUST ORDER.

Pair them pancakes with a series of syrups that they make in-house. Flavours include Guava (unique af), coconut and your standard maple. I personally loved the coconut.

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Hell yeah. The Eggs Benedict and the Pancakes are more than enough reason for me to revisit Eggs ‘n Things multiple times for sure. Also, based off their success in Japan (people can queue for hours to have a taste), I would say they can expect the same level of success here in Singapore. So check them out before things get too crowded!

Brunch on Budget

The Weekly Glutton (10/6 – 16/7)

The Weekly Glutton features dining delights that have impressed us one way or another (or not) and are places we highly recommend you patronize.

Tolido’s Espresso Nook – Brunch without Breaking Your Bank

It’s easy to find good brunch places in Singapore. However, it’s not easy to find ones that are not expensive. A brunch/breakfast and a coffee in Singapore generally sets you back more than 20 dollars!!!

When we come across a cafe which serves yummy and cheap brunches, we are ever so eager to recommend said cafe to our readers. It so happens that this week, we found such a cafe! Enter Tolido’s Espresso Nook on Crawford Lane.

Tolido’s Espresso Nook Salmon Carbonara

Salmon Carbonara, $17

The Menu

Tolido’s Espresso Nook serves all day breakfast, pasta and a few sandwiches. For breakfast, you get most egg variations here like omelette, scrambled egg or sunny side up. If you are vegetarian, there are few sweet selections you can choose from such as French toast or pancakes.

Fancy something more Italian in nature? They offer a decent variety of pastas albeit with a spicy twist. There’s also an interesting locally inspired dish like 462 prawn laksa pasta. Prices start from 10 dollars. We could not believe that our All American breakfast costs just 10 bucks. A great deal indeed!

The Ambience

The cafe is small and cosy with both indoor and outdoor dining options. Choose from a normal dining table or a couch to gobble up your brunch. The latter is usually occupied whenever we visit the place though. It can get pretty packed during lunch hour as there are many offices nearby so come early or after the peak hour if you want to avoid the crowds.

Tolido’s Espresso Nook All American Breakfast

American Breakfast Platter, $10

The Food

We’ve tried both breakfast and pasta here before. The food is decent although we would not say that they serve the best brunch in Singapore. Their serving of an American breakfast is relatively smaller compared to other places but how can we complain? It costs less than half of what most cafes in Singapore charge!

If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss their Pandan waffle, which comes with vanilla ice cream and Gula Melaka drizzled on top. We highly commend Tolido’s Espresso Nook for their effort in serving good and sincere food at an affordable price.

The Coffee

Their coffee is lovely. They source their coffee beans from Yahava Koffeeworks. If you are a coffee addict like me, don’t leave the place without trying their cuppa.

Where to Locate Them

Tolido’s Espresso Nook is located on the ground floor of an old building along Crawford Lane. Not many people may know where it is. It’s near Lavender MRT but I usually go there from Nicoll Highway MRT or sometimes walk from Bugis or Arab Street Area.

They are also open quite early in the morning on weekdays (8 AM). Do note that they are closed every Monday!

Rabbit Carrot Gun 

Singapore brunch rabbit carrot gun

Rabbit Carrot Gun no exception to brunch options in Singapore

The Singapore brunch scene is literally exploding with a wide array of options to dine at. Rabbit Carrot Gun, is no exception to this.

I’ve eaten at enough Brunch places to conclude that brunch is a meal that lacks originality. Simply put, what you’ll find on the menu of Brunch place A is never going to differ too far from Brunch place B.

At the end of the day, how you judge the worth of your time and visit will come down to the nitty gritties – Service, Ambience and of course the taste of the food.

The Food

Singapore brunch rabbit carrot gun menu

standard brunch fare at Rabbit Carrot Gun

Rabbit Carrot Gun serves standard Singapore brunch fare in a picturesque cafe (unfortunately they were packed and I had to sit outside in the sweltering heat). Expect to spend an average of $25 a person.

Gamekeeper’s Shooting Breakfast, $22

Singapore brunch rabbit carrot gun gamekeeper's shooting breakfast

sausage, bacon, baked beans, mushrooms, grilled tomato, 2 eggs of your choice, toast or fried bread

See how in the description the “Sausage” is singular? BECAUSE IT IS! You only get 1 Sausage so ration it well! They’re super generous with the Bacon though.

For my eggs, I went with Poached and they felt just a tad over but forgivable. Nothing really stood out here.

Koo Koo Ka Choo, $19

Sinagpore brunch koo koo ka choo for mushroom lovers

mushroom fricassee, potato hash, poached eggs, shaved gruyere, truffle vinagrette

If you like mushrooms, this will be your pick, think no further. Indulge yourself in the strong earthy flavors of mushrooms ever so slightly masked by a veil of rich egg yolk. The potato hash does the job of soaking any residue juices so you’ll have an extremely clean and empty plate at the end of the meal.

My only gripe, if you need more balance in this dish, the Gruyere and Vinagrette were not so obvious in this dance of flavors.

Sunday Roast, $16/$26

Singapore brunch sunday roast

tender and tasty beef for Sunday roast

This week’s Sunday Roast was Roast Beef. I ordered the kid’s portion ($16) just for sampling purposes. BEST IDEA EVER!!!!!!! It’s not even on the menu by the way.

The beef was tender and tasty, the carrots were pleasantly sweet, served with this croissant-ish pastry which was really fluffy and great with the beef.

Just to emphasize on the roast and all its goodness, the table next to mine (obviously regulars) ordered 2 whole adult sized portions of the roast. They didn’t bother even looking at the menu.

There were so many people in Rabbit Carrot Gun that it wasn’t even funny especially with the sweltering heat. Inversely, that also means that they’re doing something right. (Psst: It’s the Roast!)

Take a break from the work week at Club Street Social. Chill out in the relaxed and modern vibe of the place, as the waiters serve you delectable food and artfully-prepared beverages.

On top of the usual eggs and panini, they serve fluffy and light pancakes made with fresh cream. People with sweet teeth are gonna enjoy the orange maple syrup. Mmmm!

brunch at Epicurious cafe for unique knick knacks

2. Epicurious Cafe

Epicurious is a combination of the words “epicure”, meaning  a person devoted to fine dining, and “curio”, which refers to a collection of knick-knacks. At Epicurious cafe, visitors get to travel back in time with the collection of Singapore items that were mostly used in the 80s-90s. This is one great place for mom to relieve the good ol’ days.

For fans of Dr Seuss, this is the chance to try out Green Eggs and Ham, a dish inspired by the popular children’s book. Not to worry though, the green of the dish is achieved by using basil pesto, so you don’t have to worry about any artificial colourings.

5. Strictly Pancakes

A traditional breakfast staple, one can never really go wrong when choosing to go with pancakes. At Strictly Pancakes, they serve literally all types of pancakes, from sweet to savoury, they’ve got it. Spend quality time with mom over pancakes, and explore new and unique flavours of pancakes with her.

Apart from the usual flavours of pancakes, they serve garlic prawn pancakes. Made from a special garlic sauce that is creamy and buttery in taste, this pancake is the one that seals the deal for me.

brunch at Wild Honey

6. Wild Honey

As you approach the place, the let the saccharine scent of honey and flowers guide you to the front doors of Wild Honey. Take mom on a culinary journey, as the all-day breakfast here is inspired by the different foods from around the world.
