Choupinette @ Bukit Timah Road

It's been some time since we came to Choupinette, and a few friends thought that we should do lunch here. It must be a great day to come here because everyone went on so smoothly!

1. We found parking so easily, on arrival we had a lot.
2. We did not book as it was a last minute decision, and the kind folks arranged a table for 7 so quickly!
3. Remember the last time we came here, we did not have all the eggs runny in the centre? This time, they were all perfect! (as in runny...) Oh yummy yummy...

We all had similar sets. It was either the Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine sets.
(It was more like we were all busy chatting that we just followed what everyone else ordered)

The sets comes with 1 hot drink and 1 juice.
I had hot chocolate.

And an orange juice.

This is the Eggs Benedict. Looks good eh? Taste good too!

I had the Eggs Florentine because I want spinach instead of ham. ;-p
I love.... eggs like this. Runny yellow centre and soft egg whites.

As usual, lunch tastes good because you are with great company.
Sets were around $20.

Choupinette @ Bukit Timah Road

Remember the wedding lunch the other day? After such a filling lunch a few people thought that we should go for coffee. There's always room for some drinks no matter how full you are. So during coffee, Eggs Benedict was suddenly brought up.

Someone said we should go meet for breakfast and let's have Eggs Benedict at Choupinette. The guy who has become our unofficial outing organizer was tasked to send out email to see who will be interested. As usual, he passes the task to his sub committee to do it. (faints!) Anyway, the sub-committee was efficient and within 24 hours, an email was sent out.

We met for breakfast this morning. It's beside Coronation Plaza along Bukit Timah Road.

So what's Eggs Benedict?
Eggs Benedict is a dish that consists of a half of a muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.

There are variations of it and you can see above. Replace ham with spinach and you have Eggs Florentine. Replace ham with smoked salmon and you have Eggs Royale. If you want to read more, hop over to Wikipedia.


This is not just an Eggs Benedict place. We came here just to satisfy cravings for Eggs Benedict. They have pastries and desserts that are famous too. Hop over to fellow food blogger LadyIronChef to see what he and his group of friends had recently.


Oh ya, some reviews of this place says the poach eggs are all nicely done with the yokes all soft and flowing. For the 6 sets above that had poach eggs, only 3 sets fit the criteria. Also, to get eggs shaped so nicely, the secret is to have vinegar in the boiling water when you poach the eggs, they were probably a bit generous with the vinegar today. The eggs tasted a little too vinegarish.
