More and more cafes opening in Singapore recently and there's one that stands out, literally. De'Pop Culture is a new cafe at the Bugis area, specializing in desserts. The owner, Adeline, loves home baking and wants to share her love of food with everyone, hence, opened this cafe called De'Pop Culture, with De representing desserts and pop culture referring to the pop art theme of the cafe. She hopes the bright colours will instantly brighten up one's mood when they step into the cafe.We were se
The Bacon Surprise came in 3 bacon cups, topped with mushrooms, scrambled eggs and a sunny side up. Personally find that there was nothing special about this; bacon were not crispy, sunny side up was not runny, scrambled eggs were so mashed it felt more like egg mayo. Truffle Fries ($7.90)
The truffle fries which was served next was not bad. Hot and crispy with a hint of truffle taste and topped with some cheese shavings. Wished the truffle taste was stronger though. De'Pop Breakfast Platter for 2 ($28.90)
The breakfast platter came in a hugeeeee lazy susan. Consisting of scrambled eggs, bacons, mushrooms, baked beans, salad, sausages and hashbrown, it will definitely fill you to the brim. I love the crispy hashbrown and sausages. Salad was also light and refreshing. The scrambled eggs and mushrooms were the same as those on Bacon Surprise which I thought was pretty mediocre. Crab and the Dog ($15.90)
Next comes the Crab and the Dog - hot dog bun served with chilli crab sauce. A smart incorporation of Singaporean flavours into traditional western items. The chilli crab sauce was spicy and damn shiok! I didn't quite like the choice of bun they used and would have much preferred a fluffier and softer bun. Nonetheless, one of the better dish I tried that night! Black Pepper Crab Spaghetti ($14.90)
Here comes my favourite dish! The Black Pepper Crab Spaghetti consists of Spaghetti in black pepper sauce, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and topped with real crab meat. I could totally have the whole plate on my own. The black pepper sauce was super strong and spicy, coating every strand of the spaghetti. There was still an after tingling taste!
As De'Pop Culture prides itself in its dessert offerings, I was excited to try out the desserts even though I was filled to the brim after trying so many dishes. French Toast feat. Banana-tella ($11.90) and Waffles Caramel ($11.50)
Was told that one of the more popular items is the Banana French Toast with nutella. Honestly, I was disappointed when I had it as I had set my expectations high for it. The french toast felt like it was made using some ordinary Gardenia bread and was not fluffy enough. Was also hoping that the bananas were more heavily caramelized but they were not.
The waffles were crispy on the outside but too dense inside that it felt slightly uncooked. Love the idea of serving waffles with granola though, it gives the dessert an extra bite. My fellow dining companions were raving about the ice cream but I felt it was not creamy enough. I prefer my ice cream to be thick and creamy but this was more on the watery side. Apple Crumble Pie with ice cream ($7.90) Panna Cotta ($6.90)
Would definitely recommend you to try their Apple Crumble and Panna Cotta if you are heading there though. My favourite was the Panna Cotta which was smooth and creamy. I'm usually not a fan of apple crumble but this was good; crumbly on top but moist and soft inside.
Overall, the food here is not bad though there was nothing really outstanding. I would say it's still worth a try if you are around the area. Adeline runs the cafe on her own together with a friend, juggling both inside and outside. So do give her some support as I can see how much effort she puts into her cafe and her passion to serve good food and desserts to everyone!
