40 Hands

Time Out says

If you manage to nab seats in this perpetually packed café, order the eggs Benedict ($18) for wobbly poached eggs with molten centres that ooze when broken into, charred bacon streaked only on the fatty edges, and soft brioche buns that bring together the whole affair. Too bad the accompanying spicy roasted potatoes are an unseasoned afterthought.

For a meatier dish, get your hands dirty with the 40 Hands Cubanos ($19). Fall-apart mojo pork, honey-smoked ham, melted cheese and piquant jalapeños are tucked into baguette halves from Tiong Bahru Bakery – except, unlike its menu description, the baguette doesn’t crackle a peep when teeth meet crust. Still, it’s greasy goodness with fries – or, if you really must, a salad – on the side. Best to come mid-afternoon to stave off the lunch crowd.
