January 15th, 2017. Another morning in Singapore. We went to Bras Basah area, near Selegie Rd, to find a place for brunch. Not far from Dhoby Ghaut interchange station, for sure. It’s not very easy to find the place, since there’s no big sign in front of the place. But we found it, finally. Curious Palette.
The facade was so cute with small smoking area. Oops.. there’s someone sitting there accompanied by his dog.. so I didn’t take many pictures. I went inside, directly, and surprised with the ambiance inside. It was lovely and very comfortable. I thought it’s a small space, but when you went deeper, you’ll see it was quite big inside. A very simple interior design with white finishing and plywood tables, it looked so simple yet chic. A comfortable dining experience.
Cappuccino $ 4.90
Piccolo Latte $ 4.80
Corned Beef Scotch Egg $ 18.50
with cauliflower cous cous, peppers, guacamole, grilled brussel sprouts & green mango salad (*contains peanuts)
A beautiful presentation of a dish was always my favourite. Served with cous cous and green mango salad, I prefer finished the corned beef and scotch eggs hahaha.. I’m not a fans of cous cous or salad. Actually the corned beef and the scotch eggs weren’t that special. It’s just one comfort dish.
A Scotch egg consists of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or deep-fried.
House Citrus-Cured Ocean Trout $ 18.90
with cauliflower hummus, lemon-infused yoghurt, poached egg & corn and cheese croquette
Actually, we cancelled this one. Well, we had our confusion which one should we ordered. So I guess, when we cancelled this dish, the server didn’t really understand us. Well, it’s fine, because this was one overwhelming menu. The beautiful salmon slices were the star. Melt-in-your-mouth. I love the corn and cheese croquette too. Perfect poached egg. Recommended!
Croque Madame $ 19.50
with arugula, semi-dried tomatoes, gammon ham, melted cheddar and mozzarella mix, pan-fried sous-vide eggs, truffled sweet potato fries & toasted brioche
For a croque madame, I think the toasted brioche was too thick. It’s quite annoying for us. Good thing, the ham and melted cheddar and mozzarella mix were perfectly fine. Still, I prefer the previous dish. *peace!!*
Gammon is the hind leg of pork after it has been cured by dry-salting or brining. It may or may not be smoked. Like bacon, it needs to be cooked before it can be eaten. It may be sold on-the-bone or without bone, or as steaks or rashers.
I was told that their Ricotta Hotcake was the superstar. Too bad, we’re too full for another dish. So, let’s try it next time!
