For more reviews, visit www.umakemehungry.comThe Assembly Ground is located at the first level of the Cathay suitable, an ideal place for coffee lovers to gather or even those who enjoy gathering over craft beers too.Interior was industrial themed with wooden tables furnishing giving a classic cafe vibe in a hippie atmosphere with bicycles hanging on the wall and LED lightings hanging down from the cable tray.While waiting for all members of the group to be present on our gathering. We started to chat among ourselves over their appetizers. There were not much choice for appetizers and Straight Cut Fries were Served with Parmesan and tartar sauce.These bite sized chicken tenders were bigger than what we had in the fast food chains. Crispy and served with spicy mayo.Having the best of its meat and crispy fish skin salad with Parmesan fries and Wasabi Aioli.Pasta was kind of overdone and soggy. It was served with slices of chicken sausage with bacon, chilli, basil in white wine as well as garlic.One of us termed this as "vegetarian" burger as it was mostly vegetables without meat. Created with U.S Portobello, mushroom jery, mozzarella, cheddar, cheery tomato, chutney and arugula.The staple dish that almost every table ordered was none other than their Brunch set, Assembly Brunch. The platter was served on a wooden board with scrmbled eggs, wiener sausage, sauteed mushrooms, potato gratin, roasted cherry tomatoes, toast, choice of smoked salmon or bacon.Pizza was the best order of the night, thin crust filled with ingredients like baked ham, sauteed mushrooms & truffle oil. What made this special was the runny egg in the centre.Overall, the service at Assembly Ground was friendly and efficient. I won't mind being back for gathering again. continue reading

Located right on the ground floor of Cathay is this hipster looking cafe. One must wonder how much do they make, to afford rent in such a prime location! But nonetheless, the staff greeted me politely as I walked in and showed me to a table.The bicycles on the walls were very strategically placed above each table with rather dim lighting. The whole cafe has a very rustic feel to it.As I was waiting for the movie to start, I decided to just grab a cuppa and this matcha latte hits the spot! Perfect mix of green tea and sweetness. The aroma itself woke me up! I am definitely getting another cup of matcha latte here! All in all, a great place to chill out without burning a hole in your pocket. continue reading

The Assembly Ground is the meeting point for coffee lovers to exchange culture, oh, and it is the cafe by Assembly the fashion label store right next to it - under the Benjamin Barker brand. A rustic, easy-going interior with friendly service crew and surprisingly good coffee, I must say this was a lovely chance discovery + beautiful mistake.Anyway, since *Kirk, *Katherine and I were already gathered here, we decided to make the most out of it and ordered our coffees first. So, I took the first sip of my Mocha (SGD$6.00) and widened my eyes in surprise. Okayyyyy... another sip confirmed that their coffee contained nutty notes, and was very aromatic despite the velvety chocolate highlights.Next, the Peanut Butter Banana Cake (SGD$10.00) was a burst of flavors from the first connection right to the last crumb. The creamy peanut butter layers atop, and in between the cake layers, was smooth and rich - peanut butter lovers take note. The cake was fluffy and soft, reverberating strongly with banana's aroma- the combination was simply amazing.Finally, we conquered an Eggs Zoey (SGD$16.00) from the brunch menu - poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce and smoked salmon on English muffins with greens on the side. The poached eggs were runny and warm, its yolk painting the muffins a luscious flavor when upon contact with the knife. The English muffins were solid with the right degree of hardness, making this dish a hearty meal for us.For full review and more photographs, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2015/02/lunch-at-assembly-ground-cathay.html continue reading

It's a great place to chill out with friends with it's laid back ambience like cafes in Aussie. Coffee brews starting from $5.50 feature blends by local roasters such as Nylon beans.Matcha Latte was decent, the powdering taste was quite overbearing that itches the throat. Truffle Fries ($10), The fries wasn't infuse richly with truffle flavor though. Otherwise, it's pretty pleasant. Carbonara ($18), the cream sauce was rich in flavor, the poached egg brings it to a whole new level with it's yolk. Rosti Omelette ($14.50), For that price, I wish they would be more generous with the portion.Heard that it was homemade pizza crust so we decided to go ahead with Pulled Pork Pizza ($18). Thin crust pizzas can never go wrong, pulled pork was well marinated and flavorful. Definitely works well for sharing. The Assembly Ground would be one of my choice for cuppa in town or probably before a movie at the Cathay.Full review: http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/11/the-assembly-ground-cathay-singapore.html continue reading

Located right on the first floor of The Cathay, Assembly Ground Cafe is a spacious classic cafe with its brown hues, laidback vibe and hippie interior decor. Right beside it is the retail store, The Assembly Store from the same arm if you want to do some shopping first.Assembly Ground Food MenuApart from the usual all-day breakfast, mains, and beverages, Assembly Ground also has an assortment of interesting cakes (think Thai Milk Tea/Earl Grey/Gula Melaka) for sweet tooths. There's no service charge and GST is already included in the prices listed, so you pay the amount as per the menu.Truffle Fries ($10) While awaiting our friend who'd overslept, we ordered the Truffle Fries to satiate ourselves. The smell of the truffle can be whiffed from a table away when it passed us. We didn't regret this. The shoestring-cut fries came piping hot and crisp with a fluffy inside. Served in a steel shovel, it was so good. A friend even commented that this was better than P.S. Cafe's. If you need an appetiser, order this.Iced Green Tea Latte ($6.50) and Green Tea Latte ($5.50)With a difference of a $1, the Iced Green Tea Latte comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Apart from the temperature, both versions are the same. The drink was creamy, with the bitter-sweet Green Tea flavour there, but it would have been better less sweet.Rosti Omelette ($15) - Eggs, Bratwurst, Grated Potatoes, Sausage, Sour Cream.The star of the Rosti Omelette is not the Rosti, but rather split between both. You will be disappointed if you expect Marche's standard of Rosti. This version is a little strange, with a part of the rosti too crispy (resembling crispy noodles in texture even) and lacking in the buttery fragrance rosti potato strips have. The omelette was average. Other brunch mains would be better choices.The Assembly Brunch ($19.50) - Scrambled eggs, bacon or salmon, wiener sausage, sauteed mushrooms, potato gratin, grilled cherry tomatoes, toast. The Assembly Brunch was happily, no letdown. The potato gratin was buttery and smooth with a slightly charred exterior. The 2 slices of toast that accompanied it seems to be the multi-grain variety, Scrambled eggs were done to a balanced consistency that wasn't too wet nor too cooked. You also get to choose between smoked salmon and bacon. This dish is reliably good, and though it may sound big, the portion is just right for one with a normal appetite. Earl Grey Cake ($4.50)The Earl Grey loaf cake slice was crumbly in exterior and evidently perfumed with Earl Grey scent. However, it was too sweet right from the first mouthful. Unless you are an ultimate sugar consumer, skip. Thai Milk Tea Slice ($4.50)Much better was the Thai Milk Tea loaf slice. It had the same consistency (same recipe?) as the Earl Grey cake without being overly sweet. We also enjoyed the crumbly Thai milk tea flavoured "crust" on the surface of the cake. The cake itself is more of the dense texture than fluffy.Going by cafe standards, the food definitely didn't pale in taste. I guess it shows since one of the chefs was from Wild Honey. The service here was friendly, and the staff didn't hurry us after we'd finished our food. Ok perhaps that's because it was not crowded on the Saturday noon we were there too, Great atmosphere, spacious and decent bites and drinks - all assembled here. This place definitely makes my list of cafes to return to.For the full review, go to http://herpenandfork.blogspot.sg continue reading
