Potato Head Folks— Entering into the wonderland of Alice’s.

Judging from the appearance of the building itself, it looks like an ordinary shophouse. What you expect is probably a one level cafe where the bulldog face indicates. But, hell no!
I was superbly amazed to realise it is more than just that. People, don’t judge a book by its cover.

Potato Head Folks has been highly rated and had attained countless positive comments and compliments from many cafehoppers and foodies in Singapore.
This large three level shophouse is enticingly entertaining with its unique hand drawn/ painted murals.

 With the spiral staircase and checkered boxes flooring, I felt like I had entered the wonderland of Alice’s.

The staircase leads you to their rooftop level which is open for nightlife/ bar purposes.— so guys, new hideout for a beer/cider night! 

We ordered their infamous chips, chicken wings and burgers.

 The FOOD

  • Smokin B-Boy— Burger with prime beef patty, doubled smoke cheese, bacon, BBQ ketchup, smoky mayo and crisp onions in a demi brioche bun. (Y) Although small in size, but with the multiple piling and stacking of ingredients in between the buns were just the right portion to fill up your famished stomach. Indeed, it does stimulate salivation by just staring at it. 🙂
  • Naughty Fries— Spiced with hot beef chilli, crisp shallots, parmasan and sesame seed. This was my favourite ‘kicks’, or rather one of the best chips I had tasted my life. The meticulous slicing of the potatoes to even thickness and  deep frying are a perfect replacement to the usual fat fries-shape. Two words: Must TRY!
  • Wings-it— This was good, but it is just good. If you know what I mean.

The PRICE

To be honest, the price offered for just burgers, wings and fries could be or possibly be a tad expensive. I would recommend once in a while visit is sufficient to satisfy sudden cravings . Too frequent visits would not only make you feel sick of their food and also burn a big hole in your pocket.  #thinkbudget
The Ambience 
 I think I made myself clear in the beginning that the cafe’s interior is equivalent to the wonderland of Alice’s. ❤

 Oh, I just want to post this picture because I just got my hair dyed— Black Ash green. It finally came out the way I wanted!! 😀 Teehee~

Luxe<3 Newtown— A Cosy Cottage filled with Love.

Fresh Food, along with friendly staffs, Luxe has expanded from a small bakery to a cafe in Newtown! Here, you can anticipate for delicious all-day breakfast, fresh salads, a warm cup of coffee and various artisan pastries.

 

The interior of the cafe has been designed in a way that it resembles a small cottage, with the brilliant idea of a black painted wall that is filled with chalks of artistic scribbles from that big red heart to drink menus.  

As you can see, the space is rather limited and the tables are mostly for sharing. Concept -wise, it is basically made like a canteen? But of course, a much more comfy one. 

I had been to this cafe once that is like two years ago. So, this time is my second visit and my purpose is to dig into their salmon meals that I remembered it was so good that I almost salivate to death! I KEED.
Oh, and good news for the non-meat lovers/ vegetarians, this cafe is definitely a choice for you! 

Eggs Royale with smoked salmon.

Ricotta with fresh tomatoes and avocado, with toasted bread.

The FOOD

  • Eggs Royale with smoked salmon: Too Good to be TRUE. From the fancy name given as ‘Royale’, it is of no difference to the usual eggs benedict that you can have from other cafes. But what made this meal stand out is the fact that their toasted bread… MMMMMmmmm. The crisp is just simply heaven. So, the hint here is, their toasted/ baked goods are DELISH~ Be sure to order them! 
  • Ricotta with fresh tomatoes and avocado: the highlight of this meal is their not too cheesy ricotta. Other toppings are just there to make the whole plate looks more colourful and appealing. If you are a meat lover, you will probably dislike this one. It probably looks like a plate of ‘something you can just slice and make at home’. However, as I just said, the toasted bread is a must have, so with that and Ricotta, its not that boring afterall. 

The PRICE
Well, I would not comment much about this section because it is fairly affordable? Depends on what’s your order like. But for just a cup of coffee, I would say you can just go for it (as their heart-shaped paper cup will put a smile on your face).

The AMBIANCE
What’s not to love about this amazing cottage? Unique, fancy and quiet. Brunch and chill yo~ It’s a cottage filled with love! And I love how they market their products with heart shapes everywhere. Spicing up the atmosphere suitable for all valentine~

Baffi and Mo Espresso.—Eggs Affair: Poached or Baked?

Redfern, known to be a rather ‘dodgy’ area, it is such a surprise that there is an existence of  this small, but classic and vintage kind-of feel cafe.

Baffi and Mo Espresso, easily recognised with their ‘moustache’ logo, makes the cafe outlook more quirky I suppose? Maybe ‘Mo’ means moustache? I wonder…

Oh well~ not the main point here. So, have a look at the Interior,

I can say, what I love most about this cafe, not just the food but this holy-messy layout of the counter that gives the vibe of classic and vintage. I mean, of course most cafes have counters that might be similar to this. But till, I just love this particular one!!

And the CAKES, ERMAGERD!

Good choice of wallpaper too!

An antique pot of sugar!

Coffee anyone?

Baked Eggs with sobrasada, roasted tomato, roasted capsicum, mozarella and grilled bread

Potato hash stack with smoked ham, topped with coleslaw, poached egg and asparagus

Corn and pea fritters with grilled haloumi and oven roasted tomato sauce

The FOOD

  • Baked Eggs with sobrasada, roasted tomato, roasted capsicum, mozarella and grilled bread: MMMmmm.. Doesn’t the name itself makes you salivate? This is one hell of Eggs OVERLOAD. I think there is about 4-5 eggs in the pan! Literally. If you love eggs, you will definitely fall in love instantly. The tomato sauce that they blend with….YUMs.  And I can say this is probably one of their specialty?! It goes so well with the grilled bread.
  • Potato hash stack with smoked ham, topped with coleslaw, poached egg and asparagus: This is one interesting dish. It is similar to Kakiage (A japanese tempura veggie dish). Exact same texture and taste, except that they uses sliced potatoes and coleslaw with a poached egg on top. Poached egg was cooked os perfectly that the egg yolks drizzles out…. =P
  • Corn and pea fritters with grilled haloumi and oven roasted tomato sauce: Probably not one of the best dish on our table, but still, FANTASTIC. Healthy choice I would say. Its just a typical corn fritters with peas. However, the combination with grilled haloumi is a brilliant idea tho. Without it, I don’t think it will be as fantastic.

The PRICE
Regular cafe with regular pricing. But, the portion served was indeed huge. So, it’s good if you come in groups so that you can share. For all the three dishes we had, I only paid $13+? That’s a pretty  good deal, I suppose. Well, for me that is.

The AMBIANCE
Summed up with the word: ‘ Classic and Vintage’. ME LIKE!! Although, it is small and maybe squeezy if you are to come in a big group, but there is still a choice of chilling outdoors instead! So, all good!

Le Paris-Go—-By the coastline.

Le Paris-Go, yet another open air concept cafe.– Favourite!
A buzzing cafe that is situated in the heart of Bondi Beach, serving a gourmet range of brunch menus and freshly brewed coffee!

Well, to be honest, I had been visiting Bondi for quite a few times. Besides knowing that Bondi is best known for their Fish and Chips, Gelatos and even Ben and Jerry’s, the thought of visiting a cafe had never came across my mind.

I end up getting to try this daunting cafe—-all thanks to my lovely friend’s cousin who had came to visit. That was our meeting point.

The Interior.


Another mouth-watering BRUNCH~

THE FOOD

  • Egg Omelete with Toast: A pretty outstanding PICK from the brunch menu! The egg omelete has a distinctive taste that its so good that it does not taste like any other ordinary egg omelete. omelete that is stuff-ed with tomatoes, kernels and melted Cheese!!! The cheese is the GODLY part! 
  • Eggs Benedict with Ham: Well, as much as I love eggs benedict, this ain’t the best eggs benedict I’ve tried though. It is just Norm. Ordinary. Simple. Nothing Impressive. 

THE AMBIANCE
Even though I’ve said a thousand times… Open air concept + wooden furnitures, that’s what makes a cafe, A CAFE. Get it?! Being able to dine by the beach, enjoying the limitless amount of Sea Breeze~ Ahh… Now, that’s Life.

THE PRICE
Like all cafes, this is no exception. The price of an eggs benedict cost about AUD$16.  So, I am sure you guys are smart enough to judge the cost of other dish on their menu. Well, regardless, for all cafes and brunch menu, the most important part is their food served are orgasmic!

2042 CAFE and DELI — Unique Cafe Concept.

Introducing: 2042, Cafe and Deli.  Named after the postal code of Newtown, it makes it so much easier to locate them on google map!

This was my second time visiting this cafe, because their all-day breakfast were so addictive that I can’t even resist!
I just had to bring myself and my friends here to experience the ‘semi-alfresco’ concept of the cafe.

When you first enter, the space is so wide that it feels empty. Like a cafe that could only be flooded with houseflies or mozzies…. Do not be deceived by its outlook! 

Unique Cafe Concept.– Why?

For many cafes that I had went in Singapore, usually they are under one roof, air conditioned because of the crazy/ blazing hot weather. However, many cafes in Sydney is different, they embrace the sun. In fact, they Love It! Sun bathing is prolly one of their favourite hobbies~

2042, utilise as an OPEN AIR concept cafe. No air conditioner. You can choose to be seated indoors or outdoors. Totally based on personal preferences.


And what’s appealing is their wide selection of different seats available. When I meant different, it is literally different.—- Wooden Chairs, to Pillow Seats, to Sofa Seats…

Their wall decorations were indeed fascinating, whereby many funny words are used and framed. They even have ‘world map’ kind of canvas. Vintage and Classic… mmmm… that’s my kind. Me like!

For instance, I could not get my eyes off this part of the cafe. As much as it is just the kitchen, but there is white-brownish shelves set up and nicely decorated.


A desk that is filled with tourists’ brochures, updates of Sydney Events and even donation drive. Aww,,, Ain’t they sweet? 


Seated neatly on the stacks of shelves were Honey, Jams and etc. They sell these spreads along side as a cafe itself.

Honey, can I buy you home? ^^

Comfy Sofa seats available to suit your mood of the day. Relax much?

More interior pictures…

THE FOOD

  • Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon—I must say that in my whole life, this is the #1 Eggs Benedict I ever had! The two poached eggs were perfectly heated whereby, the egg yolk oozes out when you slice it. Topped with the special creamy, cheese sauce, it makes the usual Eggs Benedict, seem like it is no longer just an ordinary Eggs Benedict!  Besides smoked salmon, you can state your preference for other sides as well.
  • Turkey bacon Wrap— After having it for once, I re-visted this cafe for twice! It was so good! The dough that wraps it was so intact! Meaning to say, the usual messy wraps that when you slice it and all the insides will just splatter all over, it does not apply to this particular wrap. In fact, it stays the way it is and you can slowly savour the BBQ sauce and turkey bacon along with the wrap. Seriously, it taste so heavenly. 

THE PRICE
Jaw-dropping price!! For such a big-fat portion of eggs benedict ($14.50) and Turkey bacon wrap ($10), it is hard to find in Singapore or probably other cafes. Super Affordable. (Y) Trust me, you can even share your wrap with a friend and you will still feel full! 

THE AMBIANCE
Super friendly staffs that stirs up the Bubbly mood and atmosphere! Did I not mention that they grind peppers on your food right in front of you?! That’s indeed good customer service. Open air concept makes the whole cafe much more refreshing and captivating. In addition, I really love their SEATS~
