Pictured above: Symmetry Eggs Sur Le Plat
Thinking of where to have brunch for the weekend? Look no further than Symmetry, located near Bugis. In Singapore’s context, 1 year is considered to be a long time when you’re talking about the longevity of cafes. These days, it’s quite normal to see cafes open their doors for business and have them shuttered for good in the short span of a few months.
Symmetry, has defied those odds and for good reason too. The 3 brunch items that we tried were good – good enough to plan for a return trip.
When the plate arrived on the table, I was surprised; one half of me was expecting something ordinary – a brioche, topped with ham, layered with a poached egg and drizzled with a dose of hollandaise sauce, the other half was hoping for it to be presented differently.
Symmetry did just that. Bacon wrapped around a perfectly poached egg, a dollop of hollandaise that did not seek to overpower and finely chopped mushrooms that brought earthy flavours to the dish.
Breakfast Trio consisted of a butter croissant, a yoghurt jar alongside a serving of perfectly cooked scrambled eggs. The perfect classic breakfast, don’t you concur?
The menus for the other meal times looked rather interesting, with bar grub on Monday nights, casual comfort dishes for dinners on the other nights and a proper lunch menu on weekdays.
It’s a small cafe, so don’t expect large tables or a place for those secret conversations. Reservations are a definite must!
