District 10

March 8, 2013

Although whenever I think of District 10, somehow The Hunger Games come to mind, this post is not about that. Instead, it’s about a late Sunday brunch review with Regina, Calvin and Darren at District 10 Bistro Restaurant and Bar. Located at UE Square, the environment is contemporary casual with a lovely large indoor and al fresco dining areas.

Before we even started ordering the food, I was already impressed with the ambience. I love the laid back vibe and I think it’s a cozy little place to chill out on the weekends or have late dinner drinks.

Our main mission of the day however, was breakfast foods and it’s no surprise that most of us ordered some variation of an egg dish!

Let me start of by the drinks.

Tropical Freeze with pineapple juice, mango puree, ice and a dash of Grenadine syrup. (S$10)

L

Lime Freeze with lime juice, sweet & sour mix and ice (S$9)

Lychee Mint Freeze with lychee, lychee syrup, peppermint syrup and ice (S$10).

I really like the drinks at District 10. All the freeze drinks are good with my favorite being the Lychee Mint Freeze. I can definitely see myself coming back to this place on a lazy afternoon with some girlfriends to do a quick catchup over drinks and fries. Currently my usual hangout is P.S. Cafe for drinks and fries.

When it comes to breakfast or brunch dishes, one of the staples in the menu has got to be Eggs Benedict (S$24) which Regina has a soft spot for.

District 10 has their poached eggs sitting on a toasted muffin with spanish Jamon Iberico ham and hollandaise sauce generously drizzled all over. It came with a side of salad, toasted tomato and hash-brown to complete the meal.

The guys ordered eggs as well and if you want fried eggs, you can try ordering Grease Spoon District 10 Breakfast.

You’ll have two fried eggs served with sausages, bacon, hash-brownsand baked beans (S$26). It’s great that they choose to use the leaner back bacon instead of the usual streaky bacon found in most breakfast sets.

Another variation of an egg breakfast is the Spanish Omelette (S$18)

The omelette is mixed with chorizo sausages, capsicum, white onion and chili. Its perfect for those who want to stock up on protein and anti-oxidants to kick-start their day. Served along with the omelette is some salad and hash-browns.

With so many egg dishes selected, I decided to break the mold and order the Wagyu Meatballs ($24) instead. It’s a simple dish with light mustard and a choice of fries or mash potatoes but to me, meatballs and fries have always been a sort of comfort food. Of course, this meatballs are not just your usual meatballs but one done with superior wagyu beef. Unfortunately, by the time we were done with the photo taking, the meatballs were a little cold and didn’t live up to the expectations I had in my head. Nonetheless, it was still alright and the skinny fries was good.

We ended the meal with a round of desserts to share. The Sour Cherry Pie (S$12) with Pistacho ice-cream was pretty good. I generally stay away from anything that sounds sour but the ice-cream and vanilla cream went really well with the sour sweet cherry pie filling.

The Pavlova (S$12) was probably the hot favorite. The sweet meringue came with a passionfruit ice-cream on top ans strawberry salsa.

If you are a fan of dark chocolate then the Bitter Chocolate tart (S$12) is probably up your alley. The tart looks more like a slice of super rich dark chocolate cake with caramel and orange sauce to enhance the flavor.

Last but not least, is the Warm Apple Crumble (S$14).  I love caramelized granny apples and the sweet scent of apple tarts. This one has a nice crumble loosely packed all over the top of those soft cooked apple slices and came served with vanilla ice-cream.

What a wonderful way to end our extremely long brunch outing!

    1. Always love your style! You look so good.
      I visited district 10 for last sat and the drinks were good but I didn’t find the food to be exciting. Your review is quite accurate.

      1. Hi Vandy,

        Thank you! I’ll be on the look out for places with good food to share soon. I recently tried a good Thai place.
