Lots of indie cafes have been popping up around the island and Symmetry Cafe is one of them. Located along Victoria Street, this cafe serves pretty decent yummy items.
Café by day, restaurant bar by night, Symmetry is nestled in a serene spot within Jalan Kubor. Taking inspiration from both the Australian casual dining culture and French cuisine, Symmetry presents a unique dining experience with an emphasis on sharing.
Don’t miss out on this striking green door when you drive past the building. The frontage is pretty tiny and you may miss out on it!
The cafe was packed to the brim when we arrived, thank god for reservations. Do reserve a table in advance, don’t say I never warn you! :P
Pretty illustrated menu!
We opted for the safer dish Eggs Benedict (S$20). The eggs were perfectly poached with luscious looking whites and yolk. Most poached eggs are runny inside with slightly stiffer whites but this was extremely wobbly and runny all over. To be honest, I haven’t had such good poached eggs in a while. The muffins were topped with mushrooms to give a nice aroma and texture. Together with the crispy bacon and delish hollandaise sauce, the whole dish was perfect. Full marks!
Waffle (S$14) was warmly served with generous portions of berries, ice cream, bananas, peanut butter and nutella! The mixture of sweet, sour and savoury toppings was well-balanced.
The interior of the cafe looks rustic and artistic, this reminds us of the cafes in Melbourne! The ambient is great but can be extremely cramped. We were seated near the counter and the staff kept getting in and out of the kitchen and bumped into me almost half of the time. Do request for a seat closer to the window where you can get good lighting for better photos! :)
Left the cafe with bloated and happy tummies! :D
