Flock Café which has been around for 10 years at Tiong Bahru (considered long for the local café scene), has opened a new outlet at Tanjong Katong.

Expect the classic café fare of brunch items, hearty pastas, burgers, cakes and coffee to the food-filled stretch.

If you are Tanjong Katong, other cafes in the hood include Supernova, Bella People & Coffee, the Melbourne-inspired Little Rogue Coffee, 6 Letter Coffee, and Juz Scooop Ice Cream Gallery.

According to co-owner, the word “Flock” represents groups of like-minded people coming together, be it friends and or family members who share a common interest in food, coffee or music.

The family-run café keeps the atmosphere “deliberately relaxed” with unpretentious setting.

The modern industrial décor creates a fresh and clean ambience for that purpose: it is a good place to have a long lunch and a great conversation.

They offer an all-day breakfast and brunch menu, including Big Breakfast ($20.80), Eggs Sally ($17.90) which are poached eggs with smoked salmon, Scramble Eggs & Croissant ($17.80), Avocado Toast ($14.80), and Flock’s Scrambled Eggs & Toast ($9.30). The usual fare.

I was pleasantly surprised at the portion of the Big Breakfast ($20.80) which was relatively ‘big’ indeed.

It came sporting a full spread of eggs of your choice, sausage, roasted potatoes, baked beans, mushroom and more.

While the items were more or less standard fare (the egg could do with more buttery creaminess), the sauteed mushrooms with a light peppery touch was considered tasty.

Use the sourdough to soak up whatever is left on the plate.

Of all the burgers on the menu, Flock holds their Pork Cheek Burger in high regard. This is a burger with pork cheek braised to tenderness, sitting on top of layers of vegetables like lettuce and tomato.

The Chicken Katsu Burger is recommended too. The deep-fried breaded chicken leaves little to the imagination, but the interesting component is the spicy coriander yoghurt that packs a hit of sharpness, spiciness, and freshness.

The burgers come with Cajun fries.

Onto the pasta, there are choices of Bolognese Linguini ($17), Bolognese Linguini ($17), and Spaghetti Aglio e Olio ($19.80).

Apart from sauteed whole prawns, dried shrimps are mixed throughout the Prawn Linguini ($16.50) for stronger flavours at every bite.

Some cakes like the Carrot Cake, Banoffee and Orange Bundt are available here as a sweet ending after your hearty brunch or lunch.

The coffee uses quality beans from local specialty coffee roaster, Liberty Coffee.

Although Flock Café does not take anything in particular to unexplored realms, what is available are tried-and-tested classics that will do its job.
