With its overt mission statements, Food for Thought is one of those altruistic, philanthropic bistros that aims to give back to the community. When you're dining there, you feel as good and wholesome as their food. It helps that their food is actually pretty delicious, and cheap too.
To be honest, I've resisted going there because I thought that their food wouldn't be
much good, seeing that they needed such a kitschy ideology to draw in the
customers. But I'm glad I was proven wrong.
Save for a little kink in service (they'd forgotten one of our orders so it was quite the gap between the 2 plates) and a parking ticket(!!), we had a really good and substantial breakfast there last weekend. We were especially delighted that Food for Thought's prices are really competitive, the prices here are already inclusive of GST. What you get here may not be extremely refined haute cuisine, but the generous portions and wholesome food makes your money travel very far.
Oh and did I mention that breakfast here is served up till 5.30 pm? Now we have one other place, apart from Antoinette, to get eggs late in the day!
The Full Works ($18) is what we Singaporeans call "everything-bao-ga-liao". Perfectly creamy and fluffy scrambled eggs, streaky bacon (which the Hubs would have preferred crisp like paper), earthy, well-seasoned, juicy garlic shitake mushrooms, chunky chicken sausage (delectably full of texture and cut bite-sized for convenience), hash brown popcorn (I love how the small sizing just pops right into your mouth), toasted brioche (buttery and rich), and thyme tomato salad (couldn't quite taste the thyme in this).
For fusspots, there's the Customise ($12) to give you free rein in deciding what goes on your breakfast plate. Mine comprised focaccia ($2), which could do with a lot more olive oil, garlic mushrooms ($3) 2 eggs sunny side up ($3), which were perfectly done, and chunky chicken sausage ($4).
