Wow where do I even begin? It has been a busy busy month and haven't got time to update this little forgotten blog of mine.

Anyway I visited Symmetry quite a while ago. Symmetry had been on my "to eat" list for the longest time. In fact, this was the second time I visited. The first time when I went without reservations, I thought there was a queue for a free meal or something. So in the end I gave up.
Queue for free food?
So unless you want to take your patience training to a higher level, please remember to call and make reservations or book online.

Yes that's how insanely popular Symmetry is. Which I can understand why. I love everything about it. The brick walls. The cute lamps. The big windows. The menu that shows drawings of the food instead of real photos. The witty posters and quotes. The music that I don't know who is the singer but I like it because it makes me feel cool. 

I ordered my favourite drink of the century (DOTC) aka green tea latte ($6.50++). Hmmm Symmetry's version is a bit less sweet and a bit diluted for my liking, although I can still taste the green tea powder. I prefer the Starbucks version which is sweeter. My fellow diner ordered a flat white ($5.50++). It was good per my friend.

And here I present to you the die die must order: Symmetry Eggs Benedict ($22++). It comes with two poached eggs sitting on top off bacon, portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, aged cheddar and of course hollandaise sauce. I love the awesome hollandaise sauce and the golden eggs which flowed like a river. The fragrant toasted bread was crispy at the edges and fluffy in the centre to soak up the sauce and egg yolk. And I love the bacon which was savoury salty with a tinge of sweetness. The mushrooms were a bit bitter and  pungent which gave a different dimension in taste to the whole dish. The lonely looking tomatoes at the side tasted a bit weird and were strangely not sweet. 

My friend got the waffles with ice-cream $16++ (I don't know how come got people eat waffles with ice-cream for breakfast). The waffles were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Very substantial and will feel full half way. But I think I prefer Wimbly Lu's version much more. 

Service was not very attentive and I had to wave frantically to catch the wait staff's attention zzz. It also took forever for them to give us back our change. But overall they were polite and friendly lah.
