Eggs & Berries

Adding on to the list of brunch places in the west is Eggs & Berries. Now west-siders can rejoice that they don't have to travel out of the way just for brunch, or in most cases - eggs benedict. The Westgate branch follows the first outlet at Changi City Point, which they opened a few years ago (east-siders, nothing to be sulking about either).

The only difference with the Westgate Eggs & Berries will be their gourmet burgers, which are exclusively made for this outlet. But of course, the egg infused dishes will ultimately still be the reason why i want to head down to Eggs & Berries. 

We started off with the Truffles and Mushroom Fries which were of right thickness but could have done with a bit more truffle oil to better bring out the aroma and taste. Nevertheless, it was something we enjoyed munching on.

One cannot come to Eggs & Berries without having any eggs. The Italia Eggs Benedict Doppio served with Rosti on the side was something both the partner and me enjoyed very much. The yolks were runny and of the right consistency and the caviar topped on each poached egg gave it the extra oomph. 

Exclusively at the Westgate outlet are the burgers, which i didn't really enjoy as much as the other dishes served. The portion was good, but i felt the patties could have done with better seasoning and the buns could have been a tad softer. 

We were surprised to find pasta on their menu and were more surprised that they executed it way beyond our expectations. The Aglio Olio King River Prawn was a tad spicy but not overwhelmingly spicy and the Cabonara had a creamy, thick and rich sauce which complimented the pasta very well. Both pasta dishes came with a poached egg as well, which i feel should be mixed into it before consumption. 

No prizes for guessing the dessert, which came in a form of an egg. The Homemade Creme Brulee at Eggs & Berries pretty much sums out how much egg is there on the menu. 

If you haven't realized by now, almost every dish on the menu has eggs within. From the poached eggs, fried eggs (on the burger) to eggs (quite literally) in their dessert. Which also means egg lovers will most definitely love Eggs & Berries, and for the health conscious ones - it just means having to check your cholesterol level more regularly.
