Bearded Bella, Singapore

I’ve been wanting to try out Bearded Bella for the longest time. I’ve heard tales about its legendary Corned Beef Maple Toast, enough for me to trek the quiet neighborhood in Hillcrest Rise just to try it out.

And it doesn’t disappoint.

Bearded Bella’s Corned Beef Maple Toast is what dreams are made of. It start with a brioche toast at the bottom, cooked in french toast and mozzarella cheese perfection. It’s drenched in the corned beef’s oils (so it’s really unhealthy, mind you), but the proteins don’t bother me. Tossed with smoked potatoes and onions, I thought it tasted a little bit like Katz Deli’s beef brisket sandwich, albeit a little salty. I wish there was something acidic to cut through it. Now, the poached egg feels like a finale, though it’d be the first you slice.

Egg lava. That’s a new food porn.

To be honest the eggs benny could use a little seasoning but then of course, the plate would be too salty.

It does need some balance. Some greens. But I liked this toast a lot. One of those gamechangers for toast lovers.

Bearded Bella also has a Tanjong Pagar outpost, but the Corned Beef Maple Toast is a Hillcrest exclusive.

Try out Bearded Bella, and don’t miss out on ordering the Corned Beef Maple Toast. French toast snobs can swap it for multigrain toast or sourdough… But I do think to stay put and eat something disgustingly delicious once in your life. Here’s to cheat days.

P.S. I hear their coffee is so-so, so I passed on it.
