Hands is one of the pioneers of the cafe culture in Singapore. Back
when Tiong Bahru was still a sleepy estate, 40 Hands was already drawing
huge crowds all the time. I remember visiting it back in 2011 and
falling in love with their tau sar pau, when I don't even eat red beans!
40 Hands has come a long way since and has recently undergone a
coffee at 40 Hands has a sour note that I usually dislike but it was
just about as much as I could take and I quite enjoyed my coffee!
Eggs Benedict - $16
Eggs Benedict at 40 Hands is certainly a crowd-winner! What's not to
like about nicely poached eggs and juicy steak? Not forgetting the
roasted potatoes which were a huge hit! Certainly the dish to order if
you're popping by for brunch!
Muscle Mary Salad - $14 + $3(chicken)
chicken slices atop a platter of quinoa, pumpkin, broccoli, figs,
pickled beetroot, mixed greens, fresh mint, sunflower seeds and greek
yogurt with honey-lemon dressing
Truffle Mushroom Toastie - $12.50
Fragrant truffle mushroom puree, fresh mushrooms and arugula sandwiched between crisp toast. Satisfying and delish!
the Spa Esprit group, 40 Hands carries similar dessert items to the
other eateries under the group. So we've already tried some of the items
at the other eateries. I was tasked to pick items that we've never
tried and so I chose three unique cupcakes and their famous tau sar pau!
We had the Chendol Cupcake($4.50), Banana Jackfruit muffin($3.50) and
the Ol Fashioned Peanut Cupcake($3.50). The banana jackfruit muffin
surprised us all with the two seemingly contrasting flavours
complementing each other! The tau sar pau was, needless to say, the
highlight! Fluffy, soft and packed with a generous red bean filling, I
could have three of this at a go!
Thank you @gninethree for the invitation and the Spa Esprit group for this tasting session!
