1. Chiko Pollo

Located in the heart of Jalan Besar, Chiko Pollo is a Western eatery that offers a variety of mouth-watering treats. From XL Salted Egg Sotong to Smoked Duck Brown Butter Pasta, this cafe has something for everyone!

If you're looking for some good ol' comfort food, Chiko Pollo is the perfect spot for you. Run by the same founders of the famous dessert place Lola Faye, this new cafe has just started their soft launch earlier in April, which will be happening all the way till 15 May 2023. The best part?

Address: 28 Madras Street, Singapore 208422

Opening hours: Tue - Sun; 12pm - 10pm | Mon; Closed


2. Wooly's Bagels

The first bagel you should try is the Double Chicken Frizzle. At first glance, it might pass off as your usual McSpicy or even a plain ol' chicken burger, but once you sink your teeth into this chunky burger, we bet it'll change your mind. The star of this bagel would have to be the fried, crunchy chicken cutlets. Paired with the slice of eggy goodness you see in the picture, plus a heady mix of ingredients and sauces like jalepeno, parmesan, and nacho cheese sauce, it's truly satisfying, period ?

3. Pestle & Mortar Society

You’ve heard of beef wellington before, but Pestle & Mortar Society’s Duck Wellington involves a switch of protein and packs on many stronger, richer, earthy flavours ? Tender, juicy, and flavourful duck breast is wrapped in mushroom duxelles (an intensely flavoured mixture of finely chopped mushrooms, shallots, chestnuts, and herbs such as thyme and parsley), slices of turkey bacon, and buttery puff pastry, then baked. Served with a side of honey and red grape vinegar dressing, this sweet and savoury blend is an instant melt-in-your-mouth situation. You won't have anyone complaining about a tender, juicy cut of meat ?

GAMO has come up with 2 unique flavours - kaya and black sesame! First up, the Kaya Croon pays homage to a classic local favourite with a twist! Imagine the sweet, rich flavours of kaya plus crispy, flaky pastry swirling in your mouth; it's no wonder we love our kaya so much ? Their Black Sesame Croon is also a popular choice among patrons, who rave about the warm, nutty black sesame flavor ?

6. Mondays...

Located just a short walk from Haji Lane, Mondays... is a Muslim-owned café serving various kinds of canelé, crêpe and other dishes in skillets. ? Don't miss out on their Canele. Dark and caramelized crispy crust yet soft on the inside. Gently sweet, incredibly aromatic and goes superbly well with coffee! ? There are five different options: Original (custard), Matcha, Dalgona Espresso, Raspberry Truffle, Valrhona Chocolate Seasalt! ?Canele usually involves rum, but theirs are alcohol-free, a rarity in Singapore, and full of all things sweet and delicious! Caneles requires a lot of patience to make, but the result promises satisfaction - just like how you get excited when Fridays are here ? But do note, though, the cafe is open all days of the week, EXCEPT Mondays. Guess no one has found the cure to Monday blues just yet.
