ROUSE @ Dunlop Street | Revolution Coffee

Backdate to mid-July @ ROUSE for brunch with Leon and Eng Chuan. The cafe isn't easy to spot as there's no huge signage that spells out its name; I would have missed it if I didn't see Leon seated by the window haha:





Love the rundown, industrial look:







Peppermint Hot Chocolate (S$6) - one of the better hot chocolates around!:



Iced Peppermint Cucumber Tea (S$6.50):



Muesli Broiche Toast (S$14.90) - 2 slices of toasts and muesli served with homemade berries compote. I love the muesli a lot! They provide a crunchy texture to the soft bread, and also reduces the overall sweetness a little:





Spicy Crab Penne (S$16.90) - pasta with really generous portions of crab meat, baby tomatoes and rocket. I'd prefer if the penne portion was larger, or if a different type of pasta was used because penne is always not as filling for me:





Red Snappies (S$18.90) - red snapper fish served on a bed of baby potatoes, topped with creamy mushroom sauce. My favourite dish that day; I couldn't stop reaching for more. The fish is soft with its skin crispy, the potatoes are crunchy and very flavourful! Love how the mushroom sauce complements the fish as well:

And this was further back in July @ Revolution Coffee with Windy for brunch! Had pretty high hopes for this place because of many positive reviews but I probably wouldn't head back soon :(











Fresh Orange Juice (S$6) and Iced Mocha (S$7.50):



Pancakes with Gula Melaka Butterscotch & Bananas (S$13) - 3 slices of pancakes served with their house made gula melaka, butterscotch, bananas and coconut whipped cream. The combination of everything is actually pretty heavenly, but it got a little sweet for me after awhile:





Big Brunch Breakfast (S$16.90) - choice of eggs (scrambled/sunny side-up), meat (bacon/beef sausage/pork sausage/ham), sides (sautéed mushroom/tomato confit/caramelised onions) and sourdough toast. The pork sausages taste pretty weird to us because of the spices within, the rest of the items are average but the portions are so small I feel the price isn't justifiable:





French Toast with Kaya Reduction Sauce (S$14) - 2 slices of toasts soaked in beaten egg and fried, drizzled with their house made kaya reduction sauce (pandan-infused coconut milk + egg sauce) and coconut whipped cream. Was looking forward to this the most but the kaya sauce is too diluted and watery and the toasts are too dry. I had to spam a lot of the sauce on the toasts in order to taste the kaya properly:
