The Missing Pan @ Bt Timah

Category : Afternoon Tea, Bakery, Bistro, Breakfast

The Missing Pan @ Bt Timah serves the BEST Eggs Benedict! There, I’ve said it. And they’re seriously good. Best Eggs Benedict ever!

Though I guess I’ll have to try the Eggs Benedict at Skyve Wine Bistro @ Winstedt Rd & Wild Honey @ Scotts Square to know for sure…

Anyway, I got to know about The Missing Pan though a television programme which focuses on their 62 Degrees Eggs Benedict, saying that the owners went through many trial & errors before concluding that 62 degrees is the perfect temperature to make the perfect egg.

I couldn’t agree more!

So when a decision is made to have our team lunch at The Missing Pan @ Bt Timah, I’m overjoyed and ordered their 62 Degree Eggs Benedict With Smoked SalmonAvocado, seaweed crumbs on sourdough with in-house hollandaise without hesitation.

The Eggs Benedict texture is perfect. It’s soft and velvety yet not runny. I can mix/stir the egg yolk and egg white and it’ll still stay in its semi-liquid form. It doesn’t drip off my utensils.

I can enjoy the Eggs Benedict on its own or use it as a dip for the sourdough bread or combine it with the smoked salmon and they’re all good.

As you can see, the Eggs Benedict doesn’t collapse even after I split it open. And yes, the salmon is still raw on the inside, just the way I like it. What can I say? Delicious, 好吃, Sedap, 美味しい, 맛있어요!

My colleague had another version of The Missing Pan’s Eggs Benedict, 62 Degree Eggs Benedict With HamHoney grilled gammon ham, sauteed spinach and mushroom, buttered corn, in-house hollandaise. He wasn’t wowed by it, commenting that it’s okay.

I have to provide some background though, he doesn’t like corn. See all those corn under the hollandaise? And the honey grilled gammon ham was too little for him aka not enough meat. Plus he’s not a vegetables person. So he kind of regretted ordering this instead of a burger. But hey, he just wanted to try something different 😉

Next up, The Missing Pan’s French Toast SalpiconChicken, spinach and mushroom stuffed in French toast, banana nuggets, mixed berries, strawberry-smoked maple syrup. Doesn’t this look sweet? Nice presentation with fruits nicely arrange over a thick French Toast.

First impression, we all thought this was a dessert dish until she cut into the French Toast. Lo and behold, a secret stash of chicken and mushroom spilled out. She commented that the French Toast Salpicon is quite nice and very filling. By the way, the banana nuggets are goreng pisang (deep fried banana) 🙂

Our vegetarian colleague had the Reza YoghurtGreek yoghurt, cucumber, radish, granny smith, raisins, mint, homemade chewy granola stick. She commented that it was okay.

She wanted to order The Missing Pan’s Beetroot Quinoa Salad initially but we were informed that they ran out. The last I checked, Reza Yoghurt is no longer on The Missing Pan’s menu.

And lastly, we also ordered a set of The Missing Piece to share. Mostly out of curiosity as to what is it. These chocolate cookies-look-alike are pretty nice with an interesting texture. Like a honeycomb.

Paul French Bakery Restaurant at Ngee Ann City Orchard

Category : Afternoon Tea, Bakery, French

Are there times when you simply run out of ideas on where to eat and you’ll just look at each other with no answers after a lengthy discussion? Today was one of those days and after an unfruitful debate, we decided to leave it to the buses aka fate.

And that’s how we ended up in Ngee Ann City Orchard Road, otherwise known as Takashimaya. Here comes the next problem. Where exactly to eat? Which restaurant or eatery? And there was silence…you can almost hear a pin drop. Ok, ok, I was just being dramatic.

The good thing is, when everyone is silent for too long, there will always be a leader to suggest and lead us. Yeah! *grin* So, thanks to our dear leader, we are here at Paul French Bakery Restaurant at Ngee Ann City Orchard. And boy must I say, “This is lifestyle!”

Paul Maison De Qualité is definitely the place to hang out on a lazy afternoon, chit chatting with friends over a cup of tea and their awesome looking pastries. Their price point is slightly on the high side, depending on what you order 🙂 However their food is pretty decent and the environment is great!

Most of us has no major complains about their food except for the price point which we agree is befitting of the atmosphere. Here are some of the highlights & lowlights:

Millefeuille fraises & Hachis parmentier received huge thumbs up.

Le grand macaron was a little too sweet for our liking. Not sure if all macarons are like that or maybe because it was “upsized”?

Pure Jee is reputed to be Paul Singapore’s ever darkest chocolate pastry in their range however it doesn’t taste like dark chocolate. The only taste I tasted was sweet.

Will I come again? Sure. However I will give Pure Jee a miss and just order Paul Singapore’s crusty croissant with butter. Yum Yum~
