I was invited some time back to the relatively new Plentyfull restaurant/cafe at Millenia Walk, which is a great addition to the mall as well as a central location for all-day weekend brunch, which they do from 10.30am to 5pm! Even though I have stopped going out frequently for brunch (preferring to sleep in and have lunch instead), Plentyfull is one of those places that will come to mind if I have a gathering and eggs have to be had.
Here's the Plentyfull brunch menu: notice the presence of Asian delights like the Indonesian Chicken Porridge (S$10) and Onsen Eggs with House Ponzu (S$5) amidst the normal brunch fare. What I like is that most standard brunch items also seem to get an upgrade, or a twist.
The space is very very comfortable and spacious, with super high ceilings and proper ventilation.
We sampled quite a lot of dishes that day but there was quite a few of us (shared the calories yay). I also got a flat white (S$5.50) to start my meal (not pictured).
First up, the delectably dressed Fresh Berries & Whipped Ricotta French Toast (S$16) on caramelized house-made brioche. I don't think I have seen flowers this big on a plate before. The whipped ricotta was light and airy - coupled with the tangy strawberries and jam on some fluffy brioche, perfect! 4/5
Then there was the Fried Organic Eggs & Kin Yan Mushrooms on Sourdough Toast (S$16) made with burnt scallion yogurt, pecorino cheese & cress. Eggs are organic in Plentyfull and bread is also made in-house. I really liked this as well as it is a vegetarian dish, yet gives you enough healthy energy to go do whatever it is you do on weekends! 4/5
Then, a dish that made me sit up - a surprising Indonesian Chicken Porridge (S$10) which is Plentyfull’s modern take on a childhood favourite. It was served with chicken roulade, sous vide egg, fried shallots, spring onions & sesame. Such comfort food, what did we do to deserve it! A welcome addition to the eggs and bread menu. The ginger slices in the porridge sure packed a punch too, though I wish the porridge could be a bit more flavourful on its own - I never liked the texture of chicken roulade (preferring if its shredded with some sesame oil). 3/5
Then we go back to the normal brunch stuff - in this case, Plentyfull's House-made Granola Fruit Bowl (S$16) with seasonal fruits, buttermilk yogurt & acacia honey. While $16 is indeed a very steep price to pay for granola, the fruits were generous and there's also a sprinkling of nuts in the granola which by now I know to be pricey. 3/5 (only because of price)
Lastly, how about some smashed avo on toast but with a twist? Sounds like a song. We had the Avocado on Sourdough Toast (S$16) with house-made plum salted tomatoes and haloumi. I really enjoyed the flavour bombs from the tomatoes, adding a nice counterpoint to the salty haloumi and creamy avocado. This is probably my favourite dish. Did I mention how much I LOVE avocados? I wanna avocuddle with them! 4/5
Here's a vlog of my experience at Plentyfull, where I got a taste of restoration:
Overall I gotta say, this is one pleasant place to enjoy a slow and restorative healthy meal. Everything was fresh and delectable. I do hope to see more local items on the menu, or interesting twists to them in future. I'll be back for some avocado toast soon!
