On the desk subsequent to ours was Lester Lee, a Taiwanese who was an everyday patron of the unique department that’s at present closed for renovation. “I simply occurred to be passing by and dropped in,” he advised us, “I’m so shocked that I discover the meals right here higher at than the unique place.”

Lester beforehand managed an F&B enterprise in Taiwan and a seal of approval from somebody intimately aware of Taiwanese meals speaks volumes concerning the authenticity of True Breakfast.

Earlier than I get into the meals, I wish to say that this location at Capitol is improbable. The world is shiny and open, and there’s a pleasant vibe to it. Actually a pleasant method to begin a meal.

What I attempted at True Breakfast

True Breakfast’s Signature (S$12.80) seems to be deceptively harmless. A beneficiant layer of pork floss sits on the base, sticking to the coat of peanut butter on the bread. Above it’s egg triple-folded, then a slice every of luncheon meat and pork chop. Aside from the peak, it looks as if an innocuous membership sandwich. Incorrect.

I took one chew and was blown away. The heat and umami from the pork chop and luncheon meat, the tender and barely salty egg, the sweet-savoury dance of the pork floss. And, sitting subtly within the background however nonetheless making its presence felt (tasted!) was the peanut butter.

Its stickiness and the fantastic tickling really feel of the pork floss dancing about my mouth was culinary leisure. My first thought was that True Breakfast’s Signature is the flagship on their menu for a motive. Every particular person ingredient performs its position fantastically and all of it comes collectively so nicely. Simply wow.

true breakfast - pork floss omelette

When it comes to visible attraction, the Pork Floss & Cheese Omelette (S$8.30) was way more flamboyant than True Breakfast’s Signature. It’s offered as 2 omelettes wrapped round pork floss and cheese.

It was packed so filled with pork floss that the grass-like shavings had been falling out in a cascade. The cheese was so shiny orange that I first mistook it for egg yolk. Coming scorching on the heels of the show-stopping signature dish, this was good however not overly particular. It’s undoubtedly a pleasant snack and, minimize into 6 items, designed for sharing.

true breakfast - bacon omelette

Additionally designed for sharing is the Hashbrown & Bacon Omelette (S$8.80). The hash was good and crispy on the skin and splendidly tender inside. I’m not an enormous fan of the bacon slices, although. They might have been barely higher performed. Of the two omelettes, this was undoubtedly the much less interesting by way of each presentation and style.

You possibly can add on 3 or 4 objects (as a lot as will match inside) equivalent to Cheese (S$1.50), Ham (S$1.50), Tuna (S$3) and Bacon (S$2) to all omelettes.

true breakfast - scallion pancake with egg

I additionally had the Scallion Pancake with Egg (S$6.80), which is served as 2 pizza slice-shaped items. I laughed as a result of the pancake a part of the Scallion Pancake with Egg seems to be uncannily like prata. Then I took a chew and it appeared to me virtually like they really do use prata. (Yeah, they don’t, lol!)

Our order got here with chilli sauce and a particular thick soy sauce, which apparently is written like this: 醬油膏. (Please inform me within the FB feedback if that True Breakfast is trolling me and that truly means one thing like “I’m a clown”)

I attempted them simply to pattern them for flavour however by no means felt the necessity for accompaniments with the dishes, which is kind of an accomplishment by the chef.

true breakfast - iced milk tea and coffee

Along with our meals, we had Black Tea with Soybean (Chilly) (S$3.50) and Cafe Latte (Scorching/Chilly) (S$5). My evil eating companion had requested for the chilly Cafe Latte however stole my soybean drink after making an attempt each.

The Black Tea with Soybean (Chilly) was undoubtedly the higher of the 2 however simply above common contemplating the meals was actually spectacular.

Closing ideas

My go to to True Breakfast has given me a brand new appreciation for pork floss. Sure, I needed that to be the primary level in my Closing Ideas. I don’t know if it’s the standard of the floss right here, in the event that they use some magical Taiwanese model or the best way they put together it however I cherished the best way it added to True Breakfast’s Signature and Pork Floss & Cheese Omelette, the two issues I loved essentially the most right here.
