The Story

Baba Chews Bar & Eatery is an all-day dining restaurant serving modern cuisine with Asian influences, paired with quality brews from Common Man Coffee Roasters & TWG Tea. Head by Chef Alvin Leong, the culinary direction at the restaurant aims to make dining out a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone.

The Place

Baba Chews decor is classy yet homey. The restaurant is quite large with counter seats, booths and tables and but seatings can get quite limited during busy timings such as breakfast or dinner. Since Baba Chews provides a small buffet corner during breakfast, the place can get quite cramped with people trying to get at the buffet selections but that's typical of buffets.

The Menu

Baba Chews' menu is familiar and extensive. They serve a wide range of dishes, from local delights to breakfast favourites such as the Eggs Benedict.

Their Nasi Lemak was fragrant with coconut infused steamed rice and a variety of toppings, a sunny-side up, fried chicken wing and some anchovies with peanuts and sambal. A local favourite, the Nasi Lemak is a safe choice to go with for breakfast.

Their Eggs Benedict had perfectly poached eggs, served precariously on top of some english muffins with ham, grilled tomatoes and baked beans. It's always fun to break the yolk and watch the glistening yolk envelop the muffins. While aesthetically pleasing, it's also extremely delicious. The hollandaise sauce goes perfectly with the egg and ham, while the muffin gives the dish a great mouthfeel.

I also tried their Butter Brioche French Toast. While the previous two dishes were on the savoury side, this was on the sweeter side. The Brioche was fluffy and paired really well with the whipped cream and mixed berries sauce. It tasted really similar to a sugar donut and the extra crunch from the almond flakes made it even better! With a buffet corner for breakfast where they have cheeseboards, toast, juices and others, all of their a-la carte servings are slightly smaller so that you won't be too full up to enjoy the buffet spread at Baba Chews at well. This is a must-try breakfast regardless of whether you're staying at Holiday Inn Express Katong or not!
