Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove has got to be one of my favourite spots in Singapore to shoot the breeze and escape the hectic bustle of the city. It’s a dining enclave situated just by the docks where glistening yachts make their berth. It’s quiet and romantic in the evenings and a great place for a stroll in the day especially on Sundays where all our furry friends come out to play.
It was pretty crowded and a line had formed when Sean and I arrived at Kith at 11am. There was a 30-40 minute wait ahead of us which sadly was quite a damper. But we whiled away the time chatting by water and people watching. Some of the best things to do on a lazy Sunday!
When we finally got a seat, we got right down to ordering. We started with a Seared Tuna Salad ($18) with sesame-coated tuna slices, baby spinach, cherry tomato, Thai mango, soy, garlic and chilli dressing.
While this dish looked beautiful, i found the salad to be a little boring and the dressing bland and oily. I don’t really like my salads drenched in oil so this wasn’t really something I enjoyed. The tuna was fresh though and if you like your spinach salads tossed in olive oil, you might like this.
I moved on quickly to our mains. First, the Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs ($20) which seemed to be the hot favourite there. Nearly every table had ordered it.
The scrambled eggs were delicious and with good reason. While it was creamy and had a welcome hint of truffle, there were still clumps of butter in there and it might be difficult to finish the whole portion because of how buttery it was. Nevertheless it went great with the smoked salmon, avocado, coriander salsa and spinach leaves. Especially when served over two slices of well-toasted multi-grain bread.
Kith also has a Make Your Own breakfast option which i decided to try out. It comes with two eggs, some bread and then Add-Ons like avocado, smoked salmon, sautéed mushrooms etc. for an additional price. This plate right here came up to about $18.
The ingredients were fresh and the sautéed mushrooms were delicious in butter so no complaints there. And finally, I must mention the coffee which was really the highlight for me.
We ordered the Iced Honey Milk Latte ($7) and the Ice Kith Kopi ($6.50) which comprised of four shots each. Yes, FOUR. While it was overkill for Sean and he asked for two instead, I like my coffee strong and went for the full four. The Ice Kith Kopi was very much in the style of Kopi Gao as you might have it in the kopitiam but twice as strong. The Iced Honey Milk Latte was deliciously creamy with that subtle sweet hint of honey that I really loved.
Overall, I’ve had better brunches elsewhere and the waiting time was a bit of a killer for me. But I might just come back to enjoy the area and grab some coffee with the girls. Kith also has outlets at Park Mall and Robertson if you’re looking to try something nearer to town.
