If you’re thinking of a full day shopping trip in town, why not start your day with The Assembly Ground? Located at The Cathay which is a good landmark for the start of your shopping trip, The Assembly Ground serves coffee and food to start your day right.
The Assembly Ground has got a very relaxing interior. It is one of the better designed cafes in Singapore.
Truffle Scented Mushroom and Egg Pizza, $22.
You can’t really go wrong with this combination of truffle, mushroom and egg. While the crust was light and crispy, I would prefer if there were more mushrooms though. The pizza does get boring towards the edges, and unfortunately I couldn’t bring myself to finish the ends. The pizza was also served on a metal tray, which can be a little hot to the touch if you’re not careful.
Salted Yolk Chick ‘N Waffles, $19.
Southern fried chicken with waffles, my comfort food. With so many elements on the plate, you kinda don’t know which one to chiong first. I went for the potato gratin and wow! It went beyond my expectations. The potato gratin was soft, flavourful and nicely layered.
The main star of the dish, the southern fried chicken, was crunchy and not at all oily. Dip it into the salted egg yolk sauce for that oomph!
The charcoal waffle was a little disappointing because it wasn’t warm enough to melt the butter so I had to cut the butter into bits and fit them into the waffle squares.
I think the best way to eat this dish is to combine everything together – waffle, fried chicken with salted yolk sauce, and potato gratin on top. Yummy.
The Assembly Ground offers a rather extensive lunch menu with local touches such as Bak Kwa Carbonara and Rendang Mac and Cheese. Would love to be back to try these dishes out.
