We have shared various Saucy collaboration previously such as with Caffe B, Jimoto-ya and this round Saucy x The Coffee Academics Singapore. In case, you do not know who Saucy is, in short, they are a start-up who work with big brands to create mind-blowing innovative dishes. As for The Coffee Academics, a cafe hailed from Hong Kong, with its first outlet at Scotts Square and followed with the second at Raffles City.
This round, they have once again surprised us with some unexpected combination of humble ingredient on a popular brekkie item.
Saucy x The Coffee Academics Singapore
In this edition, Saucy x The Coffee Academics Singapore offers the Umami Up Brunch Set ($30). Consisting of a Egg Benedicts and Iced Yuan Yang. Both the items has a surprising twist.
Instead of crowning the poach egg with Hollandaise Sauce, one is with Century Egg Lava Sauce and the other is with Salted Egg Lava Sauce.
Personally, I really love it with Century Egg Lava. Coupling the creamy acquired taste sauce with seafood was a surprise. I never thought this is a killer combination. With the seasoning on top, augmented the flavour further.
While the one with Salted Egg Lava Sauce and crab meat is pale in comparison. The salted egg flavour was masked by brininess. Maybe the sauce was lacking in curry leaves and an added chilli spice would do the trick.
The Egg Benedicts is paired with a Iced Yuan Yang with a twist. This classic Hong Kong Cha Chaang Teng beverage is the marriage of the TCA House Blend and Tea Academics Blend. The result was a smooth, velvety with complex flavours of nutty, chocolate, floral and fruity.
Umami Up Brunch Set ($30) is an exclusive dish specially created through Saucy x The Coffee Academics Singapore available till 31 July 2018. Diners could enjoy the brunch set at The Coffee Academics Raffles City outlet daily and The Coffee Academics Scotts Square from Monday to Friday and after 6pm on weekends.
Simply reserve the Umami Up Brunch by purchasing a $3 ticket on Saucy and pay the remaining balance at the restaurant.
I would certainly encourage diners, especially those who are sick of Egg Benedicts, to try out the Umami Up Brunch whipped by Saucy x The Coffee Academics Singapore. You may gain your liking for this classic Brunch dish again. Or be inspired to create your unique sauce to spice up this boring dish.
