The Assembly is a new boutique that opened its doors in late May at The Cathay. The Assembly Ground takes over its space from Gramophone and operates as the cafe wing of the boutique. Being a cafe, it is somewhat obligatory to serve all-day brunch, but other menu items include pizza, pasta and sandwiches. For beverages, one can choose from coffee, tea, milkshakes and even craft beers.
Rosti Omelette

We were somewhat on an adventurous mood that day, so we went for the Rosti Omelette ($14.00+) which also came with Bratwurst and sour cream. This was somewhat a fusion of an Omelette and Rosti, where the grated potatoes find themselves a home beneath a fried egg. While we could feel the texture of the potatoes, the light spices from its seasoning was the only flavours that went through the omelette. The omelette tasted rather Chinese; something one would probably expect from a tzechar stall instead. While it was not really terrible, it did not really hit the spot for me either.

We were expecting better with the Moroccan Baked Eggs ($15.00+), but we found the eggs cooked too thoroughly as the whites were completely stiffened. The Shasuka was of a below-average spiciness, which is good for those who cannot handle spicy food well. Lamb sausages came underneath the eggs, but a wee bit gamey. Toast were seemingly uninspiring; probably the use of artisan breads would help improve the dish.

The desserts menu was unavailable during our visit, but there were a couple of bakes and cakes available. We went for a Cinnamon Pecan Swirl Bundt ($7.50+); a combination of Cinnamon Swirl and Bundt Cake. Cream cheese frosting was drizzled atop, and anything cream cheese would never taste wrong. The toasted pecans had a tinge of nuttiness, and the insides were filled with crispy bits of cinnamon that was sweet and complimented well with the cake.

The Assembly Ground serves two blends for their coffee; one from Nylon Coffee Roasters and one from Common Man Coffee Roasters. There is also flexibility to choose between a single Espresso shot or a double shot. We went for the Common Man Coffee Roaster Blend for our Double-Shot Flat White ($5.50+) and it was a full-bodied and highly acidic cuppa which was great for a morning perk-me-up.
