Food-wise, it was a hit-and-miss averaging on decent, and occasionally bordering on so-so. Methinks Paddy Hills would make a pretty worthwhile option if you're in the area, but I don't think the food was excellent enough to warrant travelling from afar.
The bistro is run by a lean workforce, but, for a place that doesn't have any service charge, service was fantastic - smiley and efficient. Another perk, no GST either!
That said, my grouse was mainly regarding the menu, it tended towards unnecessary and wasted pretense. If a menu requires Dr Google's assistance to make an informed decision, that's far too much posturing. I mean, how many regular people know what bagna cauda is? Or even how to pronounce it?!

Also, a girlfriend took issue with the mispresentation on the menu. What was named 'Hash Hash' with a description of "sauteed beef, mushroom, chorizo, doughstick and sous vide egg" turned out to be a beef bak kut teh. Calling a dish "hash", she said, and I quite agree, implies that the whole jin-gang is sauteed, as you would a breakfast hash. A soupy bak kut teh IS NOT a hash. Strip away the pretense, I think, and re-direct the effort to the food. That's what draws in the crowds anyway.
We had:
1) Berry Ricotta Hotcake ($23) adorned with blueberry sugar, pinenuts, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, yuzu gel, and maple syrup: Very pretty, and it tasted as good as it looked. Thick, dense, but fluffy, these were the best pancakes I've had for as long as I can remember.
2) Quesadillas ($20) stuffed with pulled duck and pickles, served with charred baby capsicum and sweet corn, and sided by a garlic aioli and guacamole: The quesadillas, in addition to being laced with parsley, were mediocre. My parsley-loving friend, who had this, said to give this a hard pass.
3) Hash Hash ($24): Misleading description aside, this was a reasonably commendable and very comforting bowl of beef bak kut teh. Meltingly soft and wonderfully fatty, the luscious hunks of meat could have passed off as pork if I hadn't been informed otherwise. I particularly liked the western twist of the sous vide egg, arugula leaves, and chickpeas.
4) Kimchi Fried Rice ($20): much touted, but turned out middling, even with the perfectly wobbly sous vide egg, and medium-well tender steak. I've had better

They have two different menus (day and night), but here's the day one for your reference. As you can see there're a lot of Asian-Western fusion food, and they offer interesting items rather than the common Eggs Benedict, e.g. Squid Ink Tagliatelle and Kimchi Fried Rice.

Berry Ricotta Hotcake (now $23++): A pretty-looking hotcake adorned with berries, pine nuts and mascarpone. The texture was light and fluffy, and a bit cake-like. The insides are stuffed with ricotta cheese, which was a delight as my fork and knife sliced through the thick pancake. The pine nuts added a contrasting crunch to the dish. However because of the cakey texture/taste, after a while it may get cloying for some people. Advised to share this, unless you really love pancakes like I do!

This place is generally expensive and I don't think I'll come back again. But I heard other dishes are worth a try too.

The owners named this café "Paddy Hills" (which represents rice and abundance) with the intention of positioning their café as a source of staple for their patrons. On top of that, this Australian inspired café is really the premium version of café. From dish ideas, interior design to equipment, everything is top notched!
Even the patch of wall outside the café was given much thoughts by having a large display of artwork which is calls for a mandatory #ootd photo!
Latte was great! Full of flavour and had moderate punch (intensity or gao) to it. Enjoyed every sip.
This probably is the BEST milkshake in town. Step aside Billy Bombers! Sweetness overload, but not jelak. I could also taste the finely blended ice which melted instantly with each sip. How cool is that?
Cakes were superb! 3 in 1: Thickness, Moist, Fluff. Brilliant Stuff checked.
With all intended purpose, the precise fluff in these pillows were meant to soak up the berry soup. Despite that, the moisture in the pillows was just right and still great in texture. What sorcery is this?!
The crew at Paddy Hills has gotten things on point! Just be ready to spend a little more while you indulge and lepak away.

If you ever been to Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice, you will see the vast differences through their transformation. They must have spend a hefty amount in transforming the old school place into such a modern and hip environment with a little hint of industrial theme.

Decor and environment was rather comfortable and pleasing to eyes. There is a long island counter in the middle of the cafe and leading towards the kitchen in the back end.

Taste Like Purple is something totally new to me. It is made up of cold pressed grapes, sweet basil & dehydrated lemon slice. Beverages looked cloudy pink to me and tasted rather refreshing topped with two blueberries. To enjoy the fullest experience out of this chilled beverage, Paddy Hills made use of a steel straw instead of those disposable plastic ones.

A quirky name the dish has which literally means a big chicken when translated from Mandarin! It's also best for sharing as the chicken was quite big, not those spring chicken size. It came in a large heavy porcelain plate with whole chicken deboned, brined and roasted.

And underneath the big slab of chicken contains a striking yellow bed of corn kernels. The dish is served with charred lemon, paprika salt, salsa verde & romesco. The chicken maintained its juciness under the roasted skin layer. However, I would prefer a version with more charred chicken skin.

Overall, this place is recommended who people who wants to check out the latest trend in cafe hopping. Especially those who likes to share photos on social media, management staff of Paddy Hills were rather thoughtful to provide Guest Wireless for patrons.

Though food combinations and name may gives us a new twist, I would advice not to have too high expectation. And being in this cafe trend, do prepare to spend more even though there are not GST and service charge.

 It's not too close to anywhere but still if you don't drive taking a bus you just need to walk for around 8-10mins.  Located in Pasir Panjang although it's next to some other restaurants, it's very full when I went there on a Saturday morning for brunch.  The decoration is very welcoming.

We tried the signature ricotta hotcake.  It's colour it's wonderful.  Decorated by various fruits and the hotcake is fluffy and made me think of Bill's hotcake in Tokyo.  It's not sweetened with syrup but with the berries.  It made the whole dish much more healthy.

Then we had the kimchi fried rice.  It's a nice surprise as its matched with egg and minced meat which made the taste with more variety than merely came with kimchi.  You could easily finish it as you don't want to stop once you started.

I also ordered a cup of chocolate.  You could see from my picture it's presentation scores full mark!  It tastes also very chocolately as well.

Very good and we would come again.

Btw it doesn't charge 17% so don't forget to tip for its good service!

Squid Ink Tagliatelle - $24

(Puffed rice, seared scallp, mentaiko, ikura and tobiko)

We ordered this dish since we been seeing countless of it on our Instagram feed, and it sure did not disappoint. The tagliatelle was tangy. though I felt that the seasoning was a tad salty. The seared scallops were fresh, and nothing can ever go wrong when mentaiko, ikura and tobiko fuses together in a dish. $24 might be a little pricey, but I would still recommend you to try this on your first visit.

Big Breakfast - $24

(2 slices of toasted bread, house-cured salmon, bacon steak, double roasted mushrooms, chunky avocado spread, caprese and eggs done your way. Choice of: 63 degrees, poached, fried, scrambled)

The visual spread definitely undermines its taste. The avocado spread was a good accompaniment with the scrambled eggs, which were creamy and light. What caught our attention the most was the bacon steak! It was a Western rendition of Chinese roasted pork (shior bak as they call it), and the juicy pork slice, together with its BBQ sauce got a major thumbs up from us. Not forgetting the ricotta and tomato slices! The only thing which we felt could be improved on were the salmon slices which could have been fresher.

Berry Ricotta Hotcake - $19

(Blueberry sugar, berries, pine nuts, mascarpone and maple syrup)

All hail the Berry Ricotta Hotcakes!

This reminded us fondly of the Madeleines at Delifrance, but with a fruity twist. Check out how fluffy and thick the hotcake was! I am proud to say that it lives up to its hype, and more certain to say that you'll definitely regret if you don't order this.

Do note that their Berry Ricotta Hotcakes take around 20-25 minutes to be served.

Service:

The food at Paddy Hills takes a little longer to be served, but I would gladly wait if the consistency of food remains. The servers took notice of our plates that were smeared with squid ink and promptly offered us a change of plates. Good and attentive service indeed!





Atmosphere:

Paddy Hills gives off various vibes with its brick walls, wooden tables, and rustic coffee machines. Their interior is pretty spacious so it'll be perfect for group gatherings. Just be sure to make reservations since it would get extremely crowded, especially on weekends.

Toodles!

For a side, we decided to go for the Cauliflower Fritters ($12); air-fried Cauliflower florets sprinkled with paprika salt and masala yogurt at the side. A dish that sounds relatively similar to the Aburi Broccoli Salad served at Sin Lee Foods, this is yet another dish that is bound to convert veggie haters to veggie lovers. Fried cauliflower was crisp and well-seasoned in paprika salt for the right amount of saltiness. Dip each floret into the masala yogurt and it gives a sweet tang to the vegetable. Really addictive because I was having it non-stop, while one of my dining partners instantly got converted to a cauliflower fan being one who does not touch cauliflower at all. Despite being a side, this was the last dish to arrive before the Berry Ricotta Hotcake; ain't sides suppose to arrive the table first?

I went with two other dining partners, and two of us decided to share a serving of Hash Hash ($24); a baked egg dish served with chorizo, sautéed mushrooms, baby potatoes, beef shank, polenta chips and shaved fennel with two slices of toast at the side. While it looked pretty manageable at first look, we realized there was so many ingredients loaded in it that we eventually found it overwhelming and ditched a few pieces of beef because we could not finish it. Think of it as beef stew, with tender beef that comes with beef which is not too gamey, loaded with an egg yolk to burst, sautéed halved baby potatoes with mushrooms and tiny cubes of chorizo. It gets overwhelming because of the dip gets more savoury over time, but the whole dish feels really well put together with a bit of everything; earthy flavours of mushrooms, the excitement of burst eggs and savouriness from chorizo and beef coming as one. Perhaps mixing the Hash Hash would help as the different condiments felt as though they were on their own respective side of the dish. Toast was also pretty impressive; crusty with enough tension to pull, speckled with walnuts for a crunch.

My dining partner ordered the Squid Ink Tagliatelle ($23). While the Squid Ink was really thick and creamy; strong in its savoury flavour, it feels a tad heavy after a while and he had difficulty trying to finish the remaining half off. Seared Scallops were fresh, while the Ikura helped in keeping the dish refreshing by injecting a umami flavour with each bite when it bursts.

While we were hanging around the comfortable seats after our meal, one of our friend coincidentally came by to try out the Berry Ricotta Hotcake ($19) which was served only after 45mins after he ordered. Served with blueberry sugar, mascarpone, pine nuts and a myriad of berries, the presentation sort of reminded us of a similar dish served at Stranger’s Reunion and Top Paddock in Australia. It was pretty luxurious; the hotcake was supposedly more cake-like, fluffy in between but surprisingly crisp on the outside; pretty interesting. The batter is also pre-mixed with maple syrup as it seems, so it has its own tinge of sweetness without having to drown it in any syrup. Mascarpone added a dimension of tartness and small hint of saltiness to it, which matched the sweetness well. Again though it gets overwhelming halfway through; perhaps the sweetness was a bit overkill, and the berries were somewhat warmed up by the hotcake so it gave the dish a weird temperature contrast.

Paddy Hills uses coffee blends that are specially roasted for them from Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee; a 99-1 blend which has chocolate and caramel notes and Spark which has berry-like notes. I ordered a 2oz White ($4) which I had initially expected to be really strong but despite its fruity body, did not turn out acidic nor leave an aftertaste.
