A wallet-friendly dining establishment you should be taking note of is 73@Hillcrest—one of the many options along Greenwood Avenue.
73@Hillcrest is a coffee shop by day where diners can delight in their multi-cuisine menu and a bistro by night for a chill dinner and drinking session with your mates. Most of the items on their menu are kept below S$13 and there is no GST and service charge.
We popped by on a Sunday afternoon to check out their weekend brunch.
Visitors can choose to sit in the alfresco area or indoors, but do note that the bistro does not have air conditioning.
Avocado & Poached Egg (S$12.80) is the most popular brunch item on their menu and it is not hard to see why. The presentation alone is enough to win our hearts and it surely is a dream for all who are into food photography.
The poached egg was done to perfection with a ’Boomerang-worthy’, runny egg yolk that spilled out almost immediately. And we loved the generous portion of soft avocado and subtle hint of bitterness from the kale.
The Truffle Scramble Bacon Toast (S$8.80) came with soft, buttery scrambled eggs, crispy bacon sprinkled with truffle salt and toasted brioche.
Swing by on a weekend to enjoy other All-Day-Brunch items such as Pork in Duxelles with Brioche (S$11.80) and Caesar Salad but Prawns (S$13.80). There are also kid-friendly choices including Waffle Double Delight (S$7.80) and Scramble Toast (S$3.80).
Otherwise, opt for their regular lunch menu featuring their signature 73 Angus Burger (S$17.50) and Chilli Crab Linguine with Soft Shell (S$19.50).
If you are not planning to drive there, the bistro is about 15 minutes walk from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station.
