Common Chefs Bistro review: Soul Food That’s Perfect for a Weekend Brunch in Sembawang

9 November 2020

Just stone’s throw away from Sembawang Shopping Centre, Common Chefs Bistro is a homey café that serves an array of comfort food from pastas, burgers to juicy steaks that don’t break the bank. A cosy décor with bare grey walls juxtaposed with wooden tables, it’s a dreamy spot for café lovers.

Start with their all-time favourite Truffle Tater Tots ($8) – crispy and golden potato cubes mixed with premium aromatic white truffle oil, garnished with a generous portion of Parmesan cheese served with their signature truffle mayo dip. Or go big with their Lock N’ Loaded ($12) – fried potato with crispy bacon that sits beneath a sunny side up for that extra oomph.

Whet your taste buds with their mains and a must-try dish is the Soul Food ($12). A clever combination of sweet and savoury in the form of chicken and waffles, served with syrup and butter. This Asian-inspired dish is like a warm hug you need after a tiring week at work and will refresh you for the new week on the right food (pun intended).

If you’re visiting during the weekend, experience opulence and order the Rich Man Burger ($16). Chomp down this burger made from buttery brioche buns, chorizo patty, smoked cheddar, sautéed mushrooms, caramelised onions, scrambled eggs and truffle mayo. Served with melted cheese sauce where you can pour it over your burger - don’t forget to Instagram that moment! This is an elusive dish, but worth the wait.

Can’t get enough of cheese? Another favourite is their Shepherd’s Pie ($15). It may look small in size, but each bite is rich with flavour from the minced pork, mushrooms, onions which are topped with their homemade mashed potatoes and Mozarella cheese. Don’t miss their classic Marinara Pasta ($12) – tossed in their homemade tomato sauce. Pick your meat from shrimp, chorizo with mushroom or minced beef with mushroom.
