[SG] The Missing Pan | generous portions with comfortable ambience

Monday, December 30, 2013

A new brunch spot just a few doors down from Choupinette, we were pretty mesmerised by their website initially and seeing how they’ve got eggs ben as their signature, we thought we just had to give it a shot!

With two level seating, it was surprisingly full on a Friday afternoon. We loved the cosy ambience and comfortable seating that was pretty spacious unlike most cafés these days.


The eggs ben was certainly a must-order for us, and thankfully we’d ordered one portion to share first before ordering more as we saw how big the mains’ portions were for other diners!

62-Degree Eggs Benedict with Ham (S$19/++)
Honey grilled gammon ham, sauteed spinach and mushroom, buttered corn, in-house hollandaise 

The first thing that came to our mind – this seems more like soft-boiled eggs than poached eggs! Needless to say, this was perfectly flowy yolks we’ve got. We were quite delighted with the generous servings though, with thick slabs of ham, spinach and our favourite buttered corn! The combination was great, with the corn adding that buttery touch to the eggs, the alternative to hollandaise sauce, and natural sweetness of the spinach that turned an anti-veg person like me eating up all my greens!

One major drawback for this – there just wasn’t enough hollandaise sauce! In fact, it was so little that we could hardly taste it. Not having hollandaise sauce was just missing the essence of eggs ben and through the little that we’ve managed to taste, it was more sour-y than buttery creamy like what it should be. If there could be more of the sauce with the sour edge to complement the whole combination of buttered corn, spinach and eggs, I think it would have been a much better one to balance the whole dish. A decent one nonetheless, and certainly generous with their servings!

Verdict: 7.5/10

Mela Con Formaggi (S$14/++)
Granny smith, banana caramel sauce, chocolate soil, citrus mascarpone, parmigiano reggiano chips, homemade honeycomb

This looked the most exciting out of the few in the menu and I was half expecting fireworks just like what the deconstructed black forest was like at Petite Menu. With cheese, granny’s smith, and homemade honeycomb, it tasted like an odd combination forced to come together. The cheese didn’t quite sit well with us, though we loved the honeycomb that was just slightly sweet and crumbly yet not sticky. A bold choice of flavours, try it if you’re feeling adventurous.

Verdict: 6.5/10

Flat White (S$5.5/++)

Its latte art sure didn't impress, but the coffee taste managed to shine. I'd enjoyed the robust-ness of it, and it wasn't too acidic. Quite a satisfying cup of coffee to go with our brunch!   

Verdict: 8.0/10
