Flavour Flings

Another new addition to the Singapore cafe scene. 3 months old Flavour Flings tucked away in a corner under the block of flats in Hougang focuses on breakfast and brunch. The owners have definitely paid detailed attention to the overall decorations of the cafe. Behind the main door, pebbles and wooden planks are laid on the floor leading straight to the ordering counter, a very refreshing concept that set it apart from all the current cafes.

Although the cafe looks spacious, but seating area is kind of small and closely packed with wooden tables and chairs used as the furniture. Walls are ingeniously utilized with hand drawn coffee menu and art works from the owners themselves.

We decided to order the following coffee and mains for trying.

Hot Mocha ($6)

Nacho Cheese Fries ($7): Straight cut fries that are a little cold and hard. I thought it will be at least warm as it took so long to be served.

MaChamp’s Breakfast ($18): A little of everything. Onion marmalade toast, pancake coin with maple, scrambled eggs, sauteed mushrooms, caramel-glazed chicken bratwurst and greens. For a usual big breakfast, it will turn out savory, instead, it’s rather sweet for the case of flavour flings. But i would say it’s quite a good rendition of the typical big breakfast, just that, more effort has to be made in balancing out the taste and flavors.

Atlantic Shirred Eggs ($16): Decided to order this dish for a try as it is something different and new from the usual. Made of cream, smoked salmon, spinach & shallots served with toasted bread. I was so looking forward to this dish as i saw from other blogs how runny the yolks were however it turns out to be rather disappointing. The waiting time for the food was pretty long, at least a good 20 minutes, so i expected something decent to at least worth the time i have waited for but when the food was served, i was dangs, the yolks and white are simply overcooked. I’m sure everyone could see from the picture itself. Shirred eggs are supposedly to be baked with the white set and yolk remains soft. Sadly this wasn’t the case. The salmon is a tad too salty too.

To sum up all, i believe what this cafe is lacking is the consistency in the food served. They really have pretty good menu containing all time favorites to some unique additions to start off with, and what they need now, is to work on the balance of taste, consistency and serving time of the dishes to bring about better dining experience for the patrons.
