I have hardly been motivated with the food posts. It’s not due to the lack of culinary outlets here but many of them I have been to recently just lacked the oomph. Therefore, I simply didn’t have the impetus to share about these places.

Till Ramen Bar Suzuki, an unassuming eatery near Boat Quay, came along.

Let me first tempt you with photo of the Cardinal Red ramen, which is rather spicy but delicious!

Tucked at an area called “Phoenix Park” at Tanglin, I initially envisioned Spruce to be a building out of nowhere in the midst of the Tanglin greenery. The place was surprisingly easy to find and only a short drive away from town.

With its contemporary interiors and relaxed ambience, it didn’t feel like Singapore at all.

I had a Spruce Eggs Benny on Corn Waffle with Leg Bacon ($12). I never knew that waffles could be savory! The eggs benny were very well-done and blended well with the sweet waffle and the salty leg bacon. The affordable price is also something to smile at.

My favourite all-time beverage is hot chocolate. Spruce’s Hot Thick Chocolate ($6) did not disappoint. The texture was velvety and the taste was strong but not overpoweringly sweet.

Desserts were Spruce Sundae with Valrhona Fudge Sauce and Brownie Bits ($15) and Steamed Ginger Date Pudding with Chocolate Toffee Sauce ($12).

The brownie chunks and huge walnuts buried in the ice-cream were amazing, although we shouldn’t have chose sorbet. The ginger date pudding was moist and delicious. Of course, it didn’t go wrong with the vanilla ice-cream and warm chocolate sauce.

Verdict:

It is simple. I like Spruce and I would love to go there for lunch and dinner in future.

You know at Sex and the City, the 4 friends will gather for Sunday brunch to update each other about what’s going on? It’s the casual place that requires no dressing up and no pretence. And if you’ve noticed, all the very important conversations in the show usually appear at brunch!

Back in Singapore, if you yearn to experience brunch like the regular New Yorkers (as seen on SATC), go to Hatched – a newly opened all-day breakfast restaurant.

Located at Evans Lodge, the newly opened all-day breakfast place resembles a cozy tuck shop complete with wooden furnishing and chalkboard! Unassuming and unpretentious. And since Evans Lodge is a laid-back area, no dressing up is required! There is a great selection of food from the “2010 Catalogue of Eggs” (menu), so you will not go hungry after all the talking. All checked, great place for brunch.

PBJ (Peanut Butter and Jelly)

It’s so hard to find a place that sells PBJ here! I don’t understand why not many places sell PB&J sandwiches in Singapore since it’s so easy to prepare. Hatched’s version uses thick wholemeal bread slices. The jam had generous berry bits for texture but I think we could do better with more peanut butter. Somehow, this didn’t feel the same as the Peanut Butter and Jelly Bagel that I had at the cafe along 17th street at NYC.

The Sleepover – $12 with Hatched special (grilled bananas and bacon strips between Brioche French toasts)

The portion looks humble but it was really filling! Love the combination of grilled bananas and bacon. You could go without the maple syrup if you do not want your toasts to be too sweet. The Sleepover was tasty and not too oily – I expected French toasts and bacon to be a bit greasy but thankfully, this was not.
