Breakfast fry-up

Breakfast Fry-up (3)

Have I got your attention yet? Smile 

We were deciding as to which of our favourite breakfast joints we should patronise when the Partner decided that he would personally prepare a cooked breakfast instead. It was an excellent idea not least because of the money saved. The cafes charge more than $10 for an all day breakfast type of breakfast, even though the ingredients are really cheap, and the cooking methodology pretty simple. Another good reason is that we get to have our favourite sides and as much as we want!

See here, the sunny side up is done SO PERFECTLY. It’s a gamble what you get at the cafes. Sometimes the yolk is a tad too cooked, and more often than not, the fried egg is dripping with oil.

I loved these sliced Portobello mushrooms with sour cream, cumin and a few herbs. The Partner’s done the veges previously without the sour cream, and obviously the version with the sour cream gives it a damn good zing.

The hash took the longest time to make, as the potatoes have to be partially boiled, grated, formed into patties then fried. Better than any Rosti I’ve had in any restaurant, even if the presentation could do with a bit of improvement. The potatoes are cooked for just the right amount of time that there’s still bite to the hash. Hate those mushy Rosti types.

I am surprised that I haven’t done a post on Cedele after all this while. I saw it grow up from little old bakery shop called Bakery Depot at Siglap 10 years ago, all the way to what it is now, 2 bakeries, 13 Cafes and 4 Restaurants. I’ve always liked Cedele because of it’s use of healthy ingredients like nuts, whole grains and seeds in its breads. The one thing they should do more is to use more organic ingredients, without increasing their prices of course!

According to Cedele’s website, Cedele by The Bakery Depot was founded by Ms Yeap Cheng Guat in July 1997. After spending many years in the multi-nationals, Ms Yeap decided to put her baking passion to test. Well I think she certainly passed the test with flying colours, judging by how ubiquitous and popular the cafes are.

So what’s the difference between the cafes and the restaurants? The cafes serve soups, sandwiches, salads, pastries and drinks. The restaurants serve all of that, in addition to meal type dishes like rice dishes and pasta dishes. In my opinion, if you just want a simple sandwich, go to the cafe, or you might end up paying almost double for restaurant service on pretty much the same sandwich.

Something the restaurants also serve which I believe the cafes don’t, are the breakfast fry-ups and pancakes. I haven’t tried the pancakes yet but I will sometime soon. Something that is lacking in Singapore are really good pancakes. I have yet to come across a restaurant or cafe that is able to serve hot, fluffy and tasty pancakes looking exactly like the picture perfect photos you see on the discovery channel.
