I had brunch at Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar a few weeks ago, and I fell in love with the place the moment I stepped inside. The folks behind Table 66 took over the space which used to belong to District 10 Bistro, and I have to say that I am very impressed by the way they transformed the interior.
It was done in a classy and elegant manner, with glass panels letting in lots of sunlight during the day. I can imagine it to be a very pretty and romantic restaurant when night falls.
The bistro is divided in half. On one side is a casual lounge; on the other, is the bright, airy space which is perfect for a lazy weekend brunch. Skyve Bistro and bar is my new favourite brunch place in Singapore.
They have a breakfast menu (served from 8am – 11am on weekdays, and 11am – 4pm on weekends) serving items like Classic Breakfast ($18), and Croque Madame ($12); and a brunch menu which comes with a list of pizzas ($14-20).
We ordered Ricotta Hotcakes ($12), Sous Vide Eggs Benedict ($12), and Classic Breakfast ($18) to share. My dining companion wasn’t very impressed with the food, but I thought otherwise. They are definitely not out-of-this-world good, but it is decent for the price, and the lovely ambience makes everything better.
The Ricotta Hotcakes came with passionfruit butter, which I absolutely adored. The Eggs Benedict was nicely done with Sous Vide technique; together with the Hollandaise sauce, and sweetcorn – it was the perfect way to start my Saturday afternoon. The Classic Breakfast had everything we wanted: fluffy scrambled eggs, nicely grilled tomatoes, a light and puffy brioche, yummy sautéed mushrooms, and two lean pork sausages.
Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar is known for using Sous Vide to prepare their food, and from what I see on the menu, they have some interesting dishes like Sous Vide Duck Confit, and Sous Vide Crispy Pork Belly.
The brunch menu is probably not the best indicator of the food standard at Skyve Bistro; I definitely want to come back for dinner to try their main courses.
Naturally, the prices during dinner are much more expensive, with appetisers ranging from $14-24; and main courses are $30 above. For those on a budget, the breakfast/brunch menu is a great option as it allows you to enjoy the ambience of the place without paying so much. For those of you who don’t mind spending a bit more, go there for dinner and let me know how it goes. See you at Skyve Bistro.
