Sin Lee Foods – Unconventional Brunch in Hipster Neighbourhood

The friends and I had always wanted to try Sin Lee Foods but we never made it there. So I was glad we finally get to strike this off the ‘To-Try’ list after heading down one weekend. It was rather late when we met for lunch but the place was still pretty packed. Considering how tiny the place is with limited indoor seating, scoring one of their air-conditioned seats on a hot hot day is like winning a jackpot

Flat White $5.50

The coffee was pretty okay with blends from Papa Palheta

Salted Egg Sweet Potato Fries $12

Twice Fried Sweet Potato Fries, Duck’s Salted Egg Sauce, Crispy Curry Leaves

Probably one of their most instagrammable items alongside the salted egg yolk craze some time back, I was pretty disappointed with the dish. The sweet potato fries were somewhat limp and the salted egg yolk sauce just failed to stand out with its grainy texture

Sin Lee’s Breakfast Chirashi Toastie $23

Served on a Toasted Herb Focaccia, Creamy Scrambled Hen’s Eggs, Soy Sauce Cured & Flame Torched Norwegian Salmin and Tuna, Tobiko Roe, Mushroom Hash, Organic Peashoots, Wasabi & Soy

Not a usual breakfast you see on cafes’ menu, I thought this dish was pretty not bad though I would have preferred a crispier focaccia. I like the combination of corn hash with the variation of chirashi bits and the scrambled eggs for a different texture

The Durian Waffle $18

Mao Shan Wan Durian, Creamy Coconut Icecream, Coconut Jelly, Condensed Milk, Coconut Flakes

The waffle was decent as well, stuffed with chunks of durian flesh with an overwhelming sweetness of condensed milk

Sin Lee Foods serves an unconventional menu in a hipster environment. It probably is a place worth checking out if you are tired of your usual egg benedicts and big breakfast, though I can’t help but feel that this place is a little overhyped
