785 North Bridge Road
Singapore 198753
By invitation from Hyde & Co cafe, I'm here with a few girl friends to try out H&C's new dinner menu together with new desserts.
New dinner menu available now from every Wednesday to Saturday, 6.30pm - 10.30pm. Reservations are recommended.

(a) Into the Woods - Iced berry tea with blends of ripe berries, hibiscus and rose hip.
(b) The Addams Family - Iced moroccan apple tea with fresh slices of granny smith and rim of glass coated with sugar.
- Both were refreshing cooler drinks great for hot weather like Singapore. My opinions, they're decent but I prefer "Into the Woods". The rim of sugar was too much for The Addams Family.

- For starters, we have chicken wings tossed in Chipotle BBQ sauce. This starter presents us with slight spiciness and a nice smoky jalapeño taste. Celery and carrot stripes on the side are accompanied by creamy homemade garlic aioli dip. A great finger food dish to start with before our mains.
(3) Assam Halibut $21.00

- We start off our mains with a fish dish. Recommended way of eating is to toss all ingredients together first before you eat as I tried tasting each seperately and it wasn't impressive. The halibut was fresh, soft but tasted bland. You have to compliment it with H&C homemade assam to get the flavour and to highlight, the sourish mild spicy assam was indeed gooOood.. Japanese soba was too soft and slippery for my liking, wish they were more firm. No surprises for this fish dish.
(4) Nasi Lemak Risotto $22.00

- A fusion yet familiar dish with great efforts behind. Risotto cooked in coconut cream and fresh coconut water, resulted in a more sweet than savory aftertaste. Risotto was grainy, al dente, more of the authentic style which italians would have prepared it. The deep fried leek slices together with the crispy ikan billis scattered around, adds more crunch to the overall dish. The yolk from the poached egg was too runny to be mentioned. Prawns cooked with H&C homemade sambal sauce were fresh, crunchy and blends very well with the sambal. If only the sambal can be more spicy, I believe it will bring up more punch. The infusion of lemongrass was also a great move as you could smell it along way while enjoying the dish. A great marriage between Asian & Italian cuisines.
(5) Beef Cheek Rendang $25.00

- This beef cheek rendang was the most pretty dish among all other mains. As told by the chef, this beef cheek rendang was slow-cooked for more than 4hours to achieve this tenderness of meat. It was flavourful and each bite is thoroughly immersed with the marinades. Sweet potato mash was nicely done with a smooth texture, not overly sweet and it disperses a buttery fragrance. The crostini laid on top not only beautified the whole dish, it's texture was really crispy and also made inhouse from scratch

(6) Truffle Mac & Cheese $18.00

- The overwhelming smell of truffle made my saliva drools way from H&C kitchen before this dish reaches our table. This truffle mac & cheese looked ordinary on appearance but tastes otherwise. From top, the torched panko gave an additional crisp to the cheese and I'm so loving the "chao ta" aftertaste in my mouth. The candied bacon bits were the source of saltiness, paired with the roasted mushrooms, this is savory!! Macaroni texture was good, not too soft or mushy. Put each different elements onto your spoon and gulp them down in a mouthful, it's da bomb! A very tummy-warming dish and also my most loved among all other dishes.

(a) Millie - Comprises of Vintage Earl Grey tea, Orange zest and Vanilla bean ice cream. Smells good and tastes mild minty with strong citrus aftertaste. It's quite a refreshing choice.
(b) Matilda - Comprises of Strawberry Ceylon tea, berry compote made inhouse and vanilla bean ice cream. Ceylon taste was very distinctive, with light fruity berries aftertaste, this is my no.2 love among all 4.
(c) Charlie - Comprises of Chocolate meringue tea, salted chocolate drizzle made inhouse and vanilla bean ice cream. No wow factor for this selection, it's just simply taste like creamy chocolate milk.
(d) Hamilton - My no.1 choice and I recommend you guys to try it. Comprises of spiced lapsang souchong, sesame segments and vanilla bean ice cream. This tea was heavy with strong smokey flavour, the dried chilli flakes gives you the additional punch along the way. This combi is something unique which I think you can't get it elsewhere but here at Hyde & Co.

- This creation was made from a gingerbread based waffle, topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream in the center, paired together with caramelized apple slices, wine poached raisins and drizzled with salted caramel sauce. I can feel Christmas came early

Gingerbread waffle was very crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. Cinnamon smell and taste was quite heavy, you could get it in every bite. Luckily, the salted caramel drizzle plays an important role by neutralizing the cinnamon taste in my mouth because I'm not a cinnamon person. If you are, this creation is made for you. The caramelized apple slices and raisins also brings up additional sweetness to this dessert dish and giving it more texture while biting. This Christmas waffle will be launched after 2nd of Dec so stay tuned!

- It's Hyde & Co first year anniversary and to celebrate the mark of this new milestone, new coffee blend, Magic, was introduced. Magic blend consists of beans from Brazil, Sumatra and Ethiopia. Heavier hazenut & chocolatey notes with slight berry sweetness aftertaste. This blend was more intense than their usual one and I'm loving this more. Come down to get your hands on it, no regrets definitely!!

Hawaiian Pulled Pork Tartine

Not much sure why the pulled pork is called as ten hour cooked pulled pork. Does it mean need 10 hours to cook this meat ? What i am sure is, it was inviting especially when it together with juicy sweet caramelized pineapple. The topped side of sweet potato chips make the food more appetizing.

The Full Works

Though it was not my first time saw a big mushroom, yet it was surprising when i saw a big mushroom served in the plate. That is what we called as Portobello Mushroom. The large Crimini mushroom was nice baked with cheese. Meat was firm and scrummy. As usual bacon is always salty! But its streaky bacon was just nice eating it with crunchy bread.

They are literally located in between Bugis and Lavender MRT, both aren't a far walk away and there's some public parking parallel spots along the stretch of North Bridge Road. Prior to this week, Hyde & Co served all day breakfast from 11am-6pm and never had a dinner menu. I've always passed by this place on a weekday night and wondered why they weren't open.

So here's their dinner menu. A single A4 page that may look very simple and typical to you, wings, pasta and waffles, but read the details and you'll realize that Hyde & Co has done well in researching and formulating a dinner menu to stand out from the crowd. Owner Derrick together with the team headed by Chef Naz, who has a background in malay cuisine and trained in Italian cooking; came up with an array of modern european dishes with a local twist. Situated in the heart of Kampong Glam, with nearby places of worship, most of the dishes have a twist of malay and peranakan flavours. 

1. Into the Woods $7.50

Into the woods is one of the few Hyde's special teas. These teas are specially sourced and imported directly and sold under the name of Hyde & Co, which means you can't get this tea anywhere else in Singapore. This Into the Woods is a very refreshing iced berry tea with blends of ripe berries, hibiscus and rose hip. It is subtly sweet and yet has a slight sourish taste due to the berries. It has a fragrant armor of arabic shisha! 

2. The Addams Family $7.50

The layer on the top of the glass, was sugar! I was surprised, as in a typical alcoholic drink, I would've expected it to be salt! This is an iced moroccan apple tea with sliced apples paired with the sugar, makes it a very light and refreshing drink.

These buffalo wings are not for the faint hearted! They are jam packed with chipotle BBQ sauce! They are what I would term as "mildly spicy". As someone who doesn't really like spicy foods, and yet still goes into Quaker Steak & Lube and attemps half a dozen of level 100, yeap. Not for the fainted hearted!

Chef Naz explained the sauce used here is from Assam Pedas which literally means "Sour Spicy". The homemade sauce is what gives this dish a local twist. Together with burnt cauliflower, french beans, soba and the halibut. I can't help but think about how it would all taste. The sour and spicy smells of the assam sauce was enough to make me want to dig in almost immediately!

I highly recommend you to toss and fold in the fish with the sauce and soba, as the assam sauce is seriously the best thing that has happened to that fish! The fish itself is so soft that you can't really cut it, so when you mix it together with the sauce, you'll end up with little minced fish slices for sure. But fret not, dig up a spoonful of halibut, with a cauliflower and soba and there you have it. The definition of modern european food with a local twist, which is what the owner Derrick is trying to bring across to the typical hipster crowd. Is this going to be a new trend?

Okay if you don't take beef, for whatever reason, you are missing out on life! This is a 100g 4-5hour slow cooked beef cheek served with sweet potato mash, slaw, in-house made crostini and homemade rendang sauce. The rendang sauce wasn't spicy at all! So no worries there if you don't take spicy! Look at that picture of the beef cheek! The beef was so juicy and tender. You pretty much don't need to chew up the beef at all, as it just melts in your mouth! Chef Naz did a great job with slow cooking the beef!

The sweet potato mash was a nice touch! I loved the sweetness level of it. The crostini was also a nice decoration but it was abit too hard for me. The slaw doubled up as a "crunch" for the dish, when mixed with the sweet potato, it was fabulous!

This is the first time I've seen a Nasi Lemak with a poached egg! Take about going on the extreme ends of western and local foods! Using fresh coconut cream, in-house sambal sauce with very fresh and crunchy prawns, there's also a lemon grass aroma to whet your appetite. The ikan bilis was also very fresh and crisp and there was alot of it! Every mouthful of risotto had at least some ikan bilis in it!

Unlike your typical mushroom risotto you find in Singapore, this is a more Italian take on risotto whereby it's more al dente with a slight crunch to each grain. The poached egg was a nice instagrammable point of the dish. Not to mention, the egg yolk adds as a sauce ingredient!

This is not your typical truffle mac and cheese. Take note! Chef Naz explained how he rendered the bacon till there's no more fat in the bacon and he uses the essence to cook the mushrooms! Topped with candied bacon, torched bread crumbs and roasted mushrooms, this truffle mac and cheese is set to satisfy your mac and cheese craving for sure!

The portion is actually quite large, I feel it's definitely more than enough for 1 person. The cheese itself wasn't too overpowering and the cream wasn't too gerlat either. I would recommend just scooping up some burnt mac with the sauce and bacon to get a more well-rounded sense of the dish!

Derrick gives his creative team the freedom to come up with their own menu and their barista came up with the itea of affogato tea! Typically, affogato is taken with coffee and this is my first time hearing affogato with tea. When asked why not over-the-top milkshakes, he goes, it's alot of money for a milkshake that 2 or 3 people would share. But an affogato at $7.50 is alot more affordable and the customer will be able to finish the whole drink. Rather than nitpick the ingredients in an exploding milkshake.

When it came to the teas, here are their offerings for the affogato, which are named after broadway musicals.

1. Matilda - Strawberry Ceylon with their own in-house berry compote. You could taste the strawberry subtly, and with the ceylon tea, it was like drinking a strawberry tea with ice cream! This is a very light and fruity drink.
2. Millie - Vintage early grey with orange zest, this was my favourite! As an earl grey lover, this tea hits the spot for me! Not to mention the citrusy after taste was very refreshing!

3. Charlie - Chocolate meringue tea, with salted chocolate drizzle. Sadly I couldn't really taste the salted chocolate drizzle and after the ice cream melted, this tasted more like a chocolate ice cream milk shake, still not a bad drink though!
4. Hamilton - Spiced lapsang Souchong with sesame segments. This was a very interesting drink. It tasted like a smoked drink! I watched as the barista gently sprinkled some chilli flakes onto the drink!

Overall, the tea affogatos are a new kind of drink, it's not too bold a move I feel. It may not be an overnight hit yet, but there's definitely chance for this to be the next "instagrammable" drink!

This is a new item to be launched on 2/12/2015. This is part of their christmas menu and will only be served in the month of december. The waffle itself is a gingerbread infused waffle, topped with caramelized apples, wine poached raisins, premium vanilla bean ice cream and salteed caramel drizzle.

The waffle itself stayed crispy despite our forever-long photo taking session. The ice cream was partially melted by the time we started to dig in. But nevertheless, the exterior of the waffle remained crispy and on the insides, fluffy and sweet! The sweetness was due to the cinnamon from their gingerbread batter! It's a rather ingenious idea, I must say!

The caramelized apples were sweet but the salted caramel drizzle helped to cut back the sweetness level. The premium vanille bean ice cream was very creamy and smooth and it was pretty dense! Their waffles are well made and I cannot wait to come back try and their pulut hitam waffle! This is probably one of my favourite waffles of 2015!

My flat white was slightly sweet and I could definitely feel a "kick" on my first sip. I wondered to myself, how could I be missing out on such an awesome cuppa all my life!?

I think Hyde & Co has what it takes to combat the already saturated hipster cafe market with their new dinner menu that is truly unique to Hyde & Co. You can witness a great teamwork from the owner to the chef and barista. They also take in feedback so humbly and work towards providing the best dining experience and value to a customer.

Verdict : (1) Great mix of modern european with tradition local twists (2) Quality food (3) Great drinks (4) even better desserts!

Other Info. : Dinner available wed-sat 630pm-1030pm

The rather quaint Hyde & Co., which opened in November 2014, has a rustic British English countryside cottage charm. They've since become popular for their high tea, with an extensive selection of over 45 types of tea, scones, crumpets, and brunch offerings.

Ambience at Hyde & Co. resembles a British English tea room. With white walls, rustic wooden furniture, fine English teapots and plates, faux green shrubs, and little potted plants, Hyde & Co. has an quaint, comforting atmosphere. Natural lighting during the day streams in through the large window in front, while warm ambient lighting illuminates the place at night. Great place for chilling and lingering over meals!

Service at Hyde & Co. is partial self-service, with ordering and payment over the counter, though staff will serve orders to your table. The menu has ample descriptions of each dish, so the only interaction with staff happens if you have a special change request, which they'll normally accomodate. They do have basic product knowledge if questioned, it's just that the counter is rather cramped, so you'll naturally limit interaction. Otherwise, rather forgettable service overall.

Food at Hyde & Co. is British English fare, and more. Typical breakfast / brunch favourites feature on the menu, several are given an Asian twist. Generally, I find food here to be average to above average in taste, with portions nicely sized for individuals. They also have pretty good desserts here. Prices are reflective of a typical high-end cafe, budget about SGD $28 per person for a meal at Hyde & Co., and I feel it's worth visiting.

Channeling the spirit of Singapore's British English colonial past, the artisanal selection of teas here are a fine blend. Created for the passionate, bold, explorers, the Tea The Hyde Co.llection (SGD $12.50) is a black tea adapted from a 150 year old recipe, a blend of assam tea leaves and ceylon tea leaves, infused with hints of citrus and bergamot. Smooth, rich, strong, with a slight spice taste, fragrant and calming. Great as a daytime tea! Highly recommended!

Loved the moist, soft texture of the Ondeh-Ondeh Cake (SGD $7.90), which features a pandan / screwpine leaf flavoured sponge cake, layered with sweet gula melaka / palm sugar infused desiccated coconut, topped with salted coconut buttercream and desiccated coconut. Looks sweet but isn't overly so, this cake is wonderfully light and totally delicious! Creative modern fusion cake, highly recommended!

- 100% handmade with no shortening, margarine or any preservatives. This cake not only looks pretty but taste of Lychee + Rose was distinctive too. Buttercream wasn't too sweet, cake texture was slight crumbly but overall I still enjoy eating it. Girls would fall in love with this shade of pink even by only looking at it.

- First expression of this cake is, it smells so gooood! Fragrance of coconut milk was strong! The greenie pandan layers were soft and fluffy, together with the gula melaka infused desiccated coconut sandwiched between the layers, it was nomnomnom! The thick buttercream and desiccated coconut on the surface may make you think the cake is very sweet but surprisingly its NOT
A wise choice if you're very into nonya-fusion creations.

- These scones looks good on plates but tastes otherwise. They were really plain, bland tasting and texture was dry. It's crumbs everywhere once you bite/ cut it. Personal preference, scones could be much more buttery. Otherwise adding raisins or cranberries might help.

- This dessert can get rather messy when you cut your way through, but it's an enjoyable one! Jam between 2 slices of brioche french toasts are some chocolate marshmallows puffs, caramelized bananas slices, nut bits and chocolate balls. Pairing of banana & chocolate together usually works, no doubt and the melted marshmallows gave the whole dessert an extra chewy texture. Sweet is a definite because there's also butterscotch drizzle but indulging it with the vanilla bean ice cream can balance out the sweetness.

- Mantou deep fried till golden brown, Hyde & co's version is crispy but dough is sweet. The slow cooked pulled pork fillings are tender but their homemade bbq marinades used is also too sweet for me. Even the coleslaw paired inside didn't render any help to lower the sweetness. It doesn't taste really oomph together as it's overly sweet rather than savoury. I didn't finish my portion.

Head barista Damien could pull out very pretty latte art too. Other than his specialty "twin swans" latte art, he's skillful with hearts and cartoon characters' latte art too.
Verdict: A comfortable cafe to chill at especially on weekdays afternoon as the whole place wasn't too fill up. I could do some writings while enjoying a good cuppa. Friendly and attentive staff here makes you feel at home too. Food served definitely has a certain good standards but pricings here may be slightly stressed on your pockets.

Prolly its name is derived by the speed that you can finish this plate. Easy to eat, roll it up and bite. Braised bbq pork with scrambled eggs and guacamole. The flavours don't complement each other though.

The waffles are different and not the norm. A take on Hyde's uniqueness. I must say I love the toasted marshmallows on the waffles.

'You can't buy happiness but you can buy tea, And that's kind of the same thing'. A quote that's so true, particularly for foodies.

A great place for girls to titter over tea served in white porcelain pots and plates.
I was excited to find that the lonngggg tea list had Devonshire Cream tea.Sadly though, I didn't try it due to majority votes. They also do scones as well. What's nice, apart from the brunch menu items, is the option of adding on other food items to your ordered brunch platter according to what you want.

We had a pot of the Sencha Granny's Apple tea, which had a hint of apple fragrance behind every sip of tea.

Gula Gula Crumpets

The cafe is known for serving crumpets, which is a British griddle cake not dissimilar to muffins, just that crumpets are cooked on one side and muffins are flipped to cook on both sides. Apparently, they are the first (and only?) cafe in Singapore to serve it in Singapore. So, despite the staff's not-so-encouraging words of it still being "in experimentation stage", I went ahead and picked the Gula Gula. The 3 crumpets looked like quarts of a cross between pancakes and crepes, and the texture was a cross of the two as well - slightly rubbery soft, but at the same time a bit too flat to claim fluffiness. The gula melaka and coconut cream combination was reminiscent of ondeh ondeh. This dish does have the potential as a strong differentiating one given further kitchen-testing and I hope to come back to an improved version in future.

Truffle Fries ($10)

The thick-cut fries were fluffy inside and crispy, with enough oomph of truffle scent. A fairly decent attempt.

Buffalo Wings ($8) - Glazed in Thai Sauce

The Buffalo Wings were glazed in a sticky Thai sauce, and delivered enough spiciness along with crunch. The inside was juicy as well. This may not be the standard flavour of buffalo wings, but it is a good side to order.

The Lady Hyde tasted as classic as its ingredients. Hard to go wrong, but not impressionable.

The Full Works ($17.90) - Baked cheese Portobello Mushroom, bacon, ham, sausage, baby potatoes, creamy scrambled eggs and sourdough rye.

The creamy scrambled eggs here in the Full Works, which I had also added on to my order crumpets, were just the right creaminess I like. The kind that is wet enough to be smeared on toast, but not too soggy. The baked cheese portobello mushroom also stood out in this platter, on the merit of that differentiating baked cheese.

What I like about Hyde and Co is its apparent drive in offering unique menu items, even if not all are hits. The 'English' teashop ambience and interior decor make it very ideal as a place to relax over afternoon tea - the English way of course. They were about to revamp their menu in January this year when I visited. I will like to return to try their new menu, particularly the tantalising cakes on display, scones. While pretending I am in a British teashop.

Peach Tea - $6.50 per pot (Refillable)

Hyde & Co offers a huge range of teas, similar to what you get at tea boutiques like TWG. I opted for Peach Tea because I wanted a safer choice and well, I doubt that can ever go wrong. The tea was fragrant and fruity!

Truffle Fries - $10

(Generously mixed with premium truffle oil and Parmesan cheese)

For $10, I must say that the portion was pretty small. Still, I love how the truffle scent was thoroughly infused even down to the last french fry. I would have preferred if they were more generous with the Parmesan cheese!

The Full Works - $17.90

(Baked cheese portabello mushroom, streaky bacon, honey baked ham, roasted baby potatoes served with Hyde's creamy scrambled eggs and sourdough rye)

One of the main highlights of this dish was definitely the baked portabello mushroom! The scrambled eggs were buttery, but a tad too runny for my liking. I loved the sausage and the crispy bacon, though I was also a little disappointed with the baked ham because it was too oily!

Odeh Odeh Cake - $6.50

At first glance, you would know this is unlike any ordinary dessert. This beauty features a pandan base with gula melaka dressing and coconut flakes which really got me wanting more! The cake was light and moist!

Atmosphere:

This English inspired cafe definitely won us over with its interior design. They also serve all their teas in pretty teapots that are the perfect setting for Instagram photography. This cozy hangout is definitely a great place for chilling on a afternoon.

Service:

The food was served rather promptly!

We went straight for the Lady Hyde ($12.90), which is Hyde & Co’s take on Croque Madame. They have added their own take to it, where they have added ingredients such as Haebee Hiam for a local fusion. Overall, this dish was pretty light; most of the ingredients had flavours played down, such as the cheese, ham, haebeehiam and pineapple bits so its quite refreshing and not overpowering. We love how the zesty pineapples were able to cleanse the palate after it gets a bit tiring; definitely worked well with the other ingredients.

Gula Gula ($12.90) is part of the sweet selection. Its a simple dish; Crumpets drizzled in Gula Melaka and sprinkled with dessicated coconut. It seemed to resemble a crossbreed between a pancake and Malay Kueh, though honestly it was seemingly pricey for its portion size.
