Commonman Coffee Roasters @ Martin Road

It's been more than a week since I've last cafe-hopped and I actually felt weird and uneasy hahaha so yesterday we headed to Commonman Coffee Roasters for dinner!

I've read that the prices here at Commonman aren't 'common' at all, and indeed they aren't. Our juice + 3 dishes (1 starter and 2 mains) already cost us ~S$80+:

Orange & Grapefruit juice (S$8) - this soury mixture needs a little while to get used to:

Home-made Granola, Fresh Fruit and Greek Style Honey Yogurt (S$14) - I almost mistook the slab of yogurt for poached eggs from afar hahaha. The honey yogurt balances out the sourness of the raspberries, strawberries and blackberries. I really love the homemade granola bits, which are really crunchy and chewy at the same time. There are tons of raisins inside too which suits a raisin-lover like me perfectly!:

Organic Eggs Benedict (S$24) - 2 poached eggs on artisanal sourdough toast (which was a little burnt at the sides and realllyyy hard lol) and tender braised ox cheeks. I really love how it's different from the usual ham/bacon/salmon combination. The juicy ox cheeks give a really smooth and melt-in-the-mouth texture which kind make up for the hard toasts:

Just look at the eggyolk flow. Mmmmmmmm......:

Grilled Chilli 'Boneless' Chicken (S$25) - the meat is really tender and juicy, and the spicy exterior provides a really nice punch even for a chilli-lover. The crushed avocado salsa helps in cooling and bringing down the spiciness:

I love the food served here (though a tad expensive), but I was pretty disappointed with the service. The staff weren't attentive and they were really slow in clearing tables etc even though they weren't busy with anything else. A bunch of times too we raised our hands to get the waiters' attention but to no avail.
