It was time for brunch with our clique and we decided to bring them to Skyve! Situated at where District 10 used to be, Skyve is not difficult to locate. However, if you're driving, do take note of which road you're supposed to turn into as it can get quite confusing! Parking is readily available in the compound.
We wanted to bring Waffles here for brunch before but they don't serve food in their alfresco area. Strange but yeah, that's what they told us.
Pretty and cozy area
Iced Cafe latte - $6
We felt that the latte wasn't very fragrant, and the taste of coffee was largely absent.
Perhaps its due to the ice?
Cappuccino - $6
My friends said that this was not bad. However, the collapse of the foam hints of this cuppa being left at the counter for too long before it was sent to us.
Croque Madame - $14
Sunny side up, brioche, ham, cheddar cheese, tomatoes.
This was pretty good! The cheese melted in my mouth and the egg was perfectly runny. The ham was a little dry but ham and cheese will never go wrong! Also, the portion of ham was pretty generous. And everyone said that the sauce on the salad was delicious
Skyve Sous Vide Egg Benedict - $16
Sourdough, portobello mushroom, sweetcorn, argula salad, hollandaise sauce
The eggs were perfectly poached. Seeing the yellow yolk burst through delights me, always. Haha cheap thrill. The hollandaise seemed to have gone under the blow torch. The slightly crispy texture left us intrigued and satisfied. The hollandaise was good! The mushroom were a little burnt though. I thought the sweet corn was a wonderful addition as it added a sweet touch to this savory wonder.
Special spoon for you to scoop up the yolk!
Classic Breakfast - $20
Scrambled eggs, mushroom fricassee, pork sausage, tomato, brioche.
This was pretty ordinary. The brioche was pretty good. It was crispy but not too hard.
Other than that, there's nothing really worth a mention.
Mini beef burger - $16
Sunny side up, sesame seed mini bun, marinated sliced tomatoes, gherkins, cheddar cheese, bearnaise sauce.
Guest food taster N had been targeting this ever since she saw pictures online. HAHA. She was so excited to finally get to eat these mini burgers. According to her, it was really delicious. The beef was tender and it was drizzled in sauce that enhanced the taste of the beef. The size of the burgers were just right for her and last of all, the sunny side up was perfect.
Ricotta Hot Cakes - $14
Maple syrup, passionfruit butter, caramelized almond flakes.
The fluffy hot cakes were a little crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.Yum yum!
We all gave special attention to the unique passionfruit butter which was sweet and sour.
The caramelized almond flakes were crunchy and sweet and I really liked them
Hot chocolate - $6
My hot chocolate arrived only after all the main courses were served. I wasn't very pleased with that but thought that maybe the hot chocolate itself could salvage the lack of speed in service.
Well, I'm pretty particular about my chocolate and this hot chocolate tasted more like sweetened warm milk. Minus points.
Skyve seems to be good with eggs but not their drinks. The runny yolks of the sunny side ups and the poached eggs made us happy haha. However, they should really step up on their drinks and service. It can be pretty difficult to get the attention of the service staff and I had to walk to the counter to get a copy of the menu when we were contemplating if we should get dessert. And even when I went to get the menu myself, the staff had their differences over whether I could get the menu? I was really puzzled. The place is spacious and pretty chill and we spent a good 3 hours there.
Overall, my friends enjoyed the food and their time at Skyve. So the experience here was quite a pleasant one for us.
