New Brunch Resolutions? Try Lazy Susan
Made a resolution to eat “better” this year? Start with your brunch choices. Ditch those poached eggs and hollandaise and take a step forward with Lazy Susan, the all-new pop-up dining concept by Spa Espirit Group – the same folks who brought us Open Farm Community, HOUSE and Tiong Bahru Bakery.
Think sharing plates of Asian breakfast-inspired fare fused with flavours from around the world, as Cynthia Chua, CEO of Spa Espirit, travels the globe to unearth emerging culinary talents to collaborate with.
We daresay Lazy Susan has launched well for it's first pop-up stint, having roped in Chef Haan Palcu-Chang, a good-looking Chinese-Romanian, who certainly ups the ante on café food that remain unpretentious and slightly nostalgic despite its modern twist.
For someone who didn’t grow up scoffing down one too many har cheong gais, he executes the hawker classic perfectly in his Crispy Shrimp Paste Chicken with Rice Flour Waffles and Sambal Maple - “Stinky Meets Crispy” ($22). Same goes to the Fried Carat Cake ($9), which Chef Haan makes from scratch, transforming this Taiwanese-style carrot cake with the use of a light curry sauce, pickled mustard greens and jalapeños.
More dishes we loved: Muscle Cheese Surf & Turf ($11), Lotus Root Salad ($9) and Corny Bollywood Pancake ($12).
Lazy Susan will pop-up at Open Door Policy daily from 5 to 24 Jan.
