jewel

Jewel has been creating waves for brunch and brunch-hungry me joined the rest in this hype. Housed in a row of shophouses, it is hard to miss this outlet but parking can be quite a pain.

Jewel here, jewel there, jewel everywhere.

enter if you dare

No entry!

drinks

Clipboards of tatty paper.

counter

Order at the counter but call for the bill.

portland

Portland ($7)

This acidic number was unfriendly on first taste but accompanied the fried items pretty well! A swell number for coffee pairing!

smoked salmon

Smoked Salmon Salad ($12)
Mixed salad with smoked salmon, capers, onion, radish, orange vinaigrette

We had it at orange vinaigrette. The tangy sauce was fundamental for this dish. Rolls of savoury smoked salmon with the garden of greens, I could turn pescetarian for this. 

pasta

Umami Prawn Capellini ($22)
Capellini with grilled prawns, crustacean oil topped with Umami "magic" dust

I usually do not get floored by prawn pastas and I did. A pretty dish to begin with and then the flavours put together set off a gastronomical display of fireworks. Prawns are fresh and pasta executed well - satisfied!

swirl

Nom therapy.

truffle fries

Truffle Fries ($7)

For sure, the greatest deception in the eyes of gourmet cooks. Truffle oil does the trick yet Jewel does it awesome! Thick cut fries with a generous drizzle of truffle oil, does rival Clifford for my best truffle fries around.

OMG

OMG Burger ($20)
2 slices of crispy bacon, luncheon meat, cheddar, lettuce, onion, tomato, topped with sunny side egg

Infact, this was the deal that made it a must to check out Jewel. Bacon, beef and luncheon meat all in a burger has to be every meat lover's dream come through. I was surprised that the savouriness of the luncheon meat went well with all the other meaty delights.

burger

While it was not the best cafe burger, it was a hearty one.

To think I set my mind on trying out the brunch menu, we ended up eating lunch items. I suppose that calls for another visit!
