Japanese-French Café By Michelin-Starred Whitegrass and Hvala
The newly-launched Boyutei at Ann Siang Hill brings together tea artisans Hvala and one-Michelin star restaurant Whitegrass.

The main menu food items are conceived and exclusively crafted by Whitegrass Head Chef Takuya Yamashita, with the Boyutei offerings a ‘festival’ of Japanese-French fusion cookery.

Comforting and inspiring yet featuring familiar flavours, it includes an extensive range of soups, salads, Japanese sandos, noodles, rice dishes, as well as sweet and savoury crepes – go for the Goma Matcha Crepe ($14).

One of my favourites in the new menu, the Ebi Katsu Sando ($22) is an open-face Japanese sandwich with crunchy, golden-brown deep-fried prawns at its centre.

The centre was moist and made an unusual brunchy item for a lazy afternoon.

Adding to the texture of the sandwich is a bed of tomatoes and cabbage atop a thick and soft brioche toast.

Breakfast Hola 早餐好了
280 South Bridge Road, Singapore 058829
Opening Hours: 8:30am – 5:30pm (Mon, Wed – Sun), Closed Tues

Taiwanese Breakfast-Style Cafe With Egg Crepes At Chinatown
Breakfast Hola 早餐好了 specialising in Taiwanese-style breakfast has opened at South Bridge Road, of short walking distance from Maxwell Food Centre and Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.

Recommended items are the Strawberry & Egg Toast ($5.80), Pork Floss Egg Toast ($5.40), Ham & Pork Floss Club Sandwich ($7.90), Double Cheese Crepe Roll ($4.90), Lady Boss Pork Brown Rice ($5.80, $7.80), and Taiwanese Nabeyaki ($7.90).

No Lu Rou Fan at Breakfast Hola though. They serve up another version called “Rou Zao Fan” ($4.80, $6.80) which they term as “Authentic Taiwanese Braised Pork Rice”.

The key differences is that “Rou Zao Fan” uses ground pork instead of pork belly, and has a mellower taste with use of fewer aromatic spices.

Their version was considered decent, with braised savoury pork on top of fluffy rice with light fragrance that made it more appetising to have.
