Strangers' Re­union

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Out And About -

Mel­bourne café-in­spired Strangers’ Re­union has re­opened with a new menu that of­fers din­ers clean eat­ing op­tions. While the out­let has be­come known for its de­li­cious Berry Ri­cotta Hot­cake and Buttermilk Waf­fles, new ad­di­tions to the menu pro­vide guiltfree dishes that are equally in­dul­gent.

For in­stance, the Salmon & Kale (S$19.90) fea­tures or­ganic lo­cally sourced kale with pan-seared salmon and poached eggs, dressed with salmon roe and home-made hol­landaise sauce. The com­bi­na­tion of flavours and tex­tures that come to­gether with the in­gre­di­ents is clearly not for the faint­hearted. An­other treat is the Strangers Smoked Salmon, which is the café’s take on the pop­u­lar brunch dish of Smoked Salmon Eggs Bene­dict. While the lat­ter of­fers sliv­ers of smoked salmon with poached eggs on toast, at Strangers’ Re­union, ex­pect noth­ing less than a 120g salmon fil­let that is smoked in-house with mesquite wood and com­ple­mented with a sweet hazel­nut béar­naise sauce and wal­nut crum­ble for crunch. Health-con­scious din­ers can also tuck into the tasty su­per­food bowls such as the Co­conut Chia Pud­ding, the Acai Smoothie Bowl and the Av­o­cado Smoothie Bowl (S$11.90 each). On the din­ner menu, the en­tic­ing Aburi Men­taiko Spaghetti (S$21.90) is a won­der­ful mix of cream and spici­ness, topped with aburi prawns and scal­lops. Meat-lovers can also en­joy the hearty por­tion of Crispy Pork Belly that comes with chorizo hash, pan-fried sous vide egg and sautéed sea­sonal veg­eta­bles. While a wide se­lec­tion of cof­fee drinks is avail­able, must-tries in­clude the sig­na­ture Magic (S$5.50), a dou­ble ristretto topped with just the right amount of milk for that flavour punch, as well as the White Magic (S$6.90), a milky chilled brew made with fresh espresso.
