The cafe was located just next to the bus stop, in the middle of a row of old looking houses. With huge plain window, it offers a bright looking clean look to the place.Although it was weekday just past lunch time, the place was packed with people, especially young people. Just the couple of young of gals who sat next whose main purpose were to have free wifi and power supply for their laptop.Menu was a simple clip board type.MAC & CHEESE ($15++)With creamy lobster sauce under melted cheddar, mozarella & parmesanWait 20 minutesThe mac and cheese was rich and creamy, with crunchy prawn roes in it. Lots of bits of the lobster meat. But it was quite oily at the bottom of the bowl.Golden Custard Lava Cake ($12)Molten chocolate lava cake with a salted egg yolk custard center*limited portions available*Served in a big dim sum basket. The motlen filling flowed out easily and smooth. The cake was pipping and moist. It tasted chocolaty and salty with bits of the salted egg yolk.Overall food was not bad and served quite fast too. Iced water was served to the table. continue reading

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/08/five-dime.htmlI have to admit that the location is not very accessible if you are visiting by train. With two nearest MRT stations stationed in town, Five & Dime can only depend on Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut MRT Stations. Luckily, there is a bus stop directly across the road, which a little more convenience to diners, as well as a carpark just right behind the cafe.Five & Dime does not have a lot of seats, so reservation is actually recommended, and they only take in reservation on every two hours (e.g. Table reservation at 2pm, 4pm, 6pm, etc.).French Toast ($16.00) with choice of either crispy bacon or chicken sausages and with fruit salad. It really seems to me as a very simple dish, but their French toast is just too fluffy and the syrup with butter makes the toast not too dry yet sweet.Braised Pork Belly Sandwich ($18.00), with the use of black Berkshire pork in between toasted French white and sweet potato fries at the side. I have no idea how many portions are available, but I'm glad that I am one of those trying out the limited portions!Pork belly is definitely yummy, dripping with sauce on the "tough-like-rock" French white. Well, the outer is hard, but the bread itself is still quite soft and the dripping sauce is acting like a jam to me.Golden Custard Lava Cake ($12.00). The only special out of the list of 5. Something like custard bun, but instead a "westernized" version. Love the soft chocolate-ty taste of the cake, mixing the sweet and saltiness together to form a smile on your lips.For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/08/five-dime.html continue reading

For pictures and full reiew, pls visit:http://madamechewy.com/2015/06/06/five-and-dime/Back again at Five and Dime to try their famous salted egg yolk custard lava cake! This popular brunch spot is not the most accessible; the nearest MRT (Somerset) is 10-15 walk away but that doesn’t stop the crowds from coming. For those who drive, free parking is available at the back.Five and Dime pride themselves for serving unpretentious, quality food at reasonable prices. The interior is small but stylish. Service is efficient, friendly and cheerful.We were taken by the enticing aroma of our neighbour’s Calamari ($9) and therefore ordered one too. Crisps batter, springy calamari teamed with tartar sauce, what’s there not to like?W had two beautifully poached eggs nesting on wagyu beef slices and brioche, accompanied with mesclun greens, spiced breakfast potatoes and a bowl of fruit salad. Five and Dime’s Eggs Benny ($18) was competently executed and gratifying.Five and Dime is well-known for their Mentaiko Pasta ($18) and this was on almost every table. The slightly soft spaghetti was tossed in creamy mentaiko and topped with more cod fish roe. The umami pasta is a good choice if you want to jumpstart your day with a bit carbo boost, however, if you’re not a fan of fishy aftertaste, this is not for you.The fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes ($15) adorned with fresh fruits came with butter and maple syrup on the side. Diners can opt for crispy bacon or chicken sausage to complement their pancakes. It’s decent brunch plate that will please most palates.The highlight of our meal was undoubtedly the rich Golden Custard Lava Cake($12), a unique east meets west creation that sent us to dessert heaven. Presented in a traditional dim sum basket, the chocolate exterior breaks open to reveal a glorious river of golden elixir- salted egg yolk custard.Ask the server for the flavour of the Crème Brulee ($12) prepared for the day. If its camomile, get it! The crème brulee is burnt enough on the top, and has a nice crunch of burnt sugar. We also thoroughly enjoyed smooth and creamy chilled custard which left a lingering trail of camomile in the mouth.Lovely brunch plates, captivating desserts and great service; I can see why Five and Dime was full house when we visited. Brunch is served from 10am to 4.20pm on weekends. I recommend making reservations to avoid disappointment. If you wish to try the Golden Custard Lava Cake, do arrive early as servings are limited. continue reading

Finally made a trip to Five & Dime! I’m actually looking forward to their Golden custard (Salted Egg Yolk!) LAVA CAKE! But its out of stocks when i reached. ): oh wells. But yes, back to Five & Dime. A very european exterior with red bricks ceiling, tainted windows and a white coat standing along the street. Open into bricks walls with wooden furnitures. Chic and simple design. Quite a small area too, probably around 8 tables for seating and a bar table top.Simple menu with a few starters, mains and sides choices. Their weekend menu is more brunch like while weekday menu is more western like with food like pastas, fish & chips, cajun chicken etc. They were having 1-1 for some of their drinks. So we ordered a somersby apple cider. Slurpss. We ordered one of their starters – Mac & Cheese ($15). Quite different from the usual where it’s just macaroni and melted mozzarella cheese instead, this had an additional lobster sauce. You can taste bits of lobster chunks too! Its quite creamy more than cheesy though.Then we ordered Seared Salmon ($23) and Mentaiko Pasta ($18). The pasta is cooked to al dente. It’s a creamy dish, and had good mixture of cod fish roe and mentaiko. Their portions are quite generous. Very filling after the meal. continue reading

I have been trying to eat brunch at Five & Dime Eatery for a while, but after three failed attempts (once no reservation, once I didnt take their 3 seatings on Sundays seriously, etc), I decided to forgo brunch here and take dinner with the Beau instead.Located at 297 River Valley Road, Singapore 238338, one could say that Five & Dime Eatery is located at the end of a row of shophouses - but its pretty exterior gives it a quaint, standalone appearance, doesnt it? I like the pretty, white, European-looking outlook that makes it stand out from the rest of the shops in the same row.The interior somewhat belies its quasi-elegant exterior, but exudes a warm, cosy ambience complete with chalkboard menus and colorful artwork adorning the walls. They have a cute clipboard menu, but their drinks menu is more adorable - resembling a passport.Then they served my Salmon Rocket Salad (SGD$15.00) - flame torched salmon sashimi wrapped with arugula leaves, with wasabi mirin dressing. It was a combination of two of my favorite things - salmon sashimi and arugula leaves! The salmon sashimi was saccharine and rather fresh, made all the more tasty with overtures of smokiness because it was torched on the underside. Next, our shared main course of Mentaiko Pasta (SGD$18.00) came - spaghetti tossed in creamy mentaiko topped with cod fish roe - the pasta was rather springy but dry - there was no sauce detected, much less creamy. The palatable spicy cod roe made up for the lack of gravy though.We also shared a side of Spicy Miso Wings (SGD$7.00) - 6 pieces of half wings tossed in spicy miso sauce - juicy, spicy and sapid in flavor. It tasted like tomato-paste chicken with a heavy burst of saltiness, so after the first few impressive bites, we both agreed that the taste was a little overwhelming. You have to eat it with bread, rice or pasta to neutralise the flavors.For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/06/dinner-at-five-dime-eatery.html continue reading
