We were spoilt for choice when we walked around The Paragon Mall looking for a place for brunch. In addition to the dozens of restaurants in the basement, there is a cluster of cafes at the old Promenade end of the Paragon mall. We ended up at O’Coffee Club Paragon which is sandwiched between Paul’s on the second level and 63 Celsius on the 4th. All three occupy the same spot on the planet, just vertically atop or below each other.
O’Coffee Club menu
We have to admit that one thing that sealed the deal for us was this “Celebrate GSS @ O’Coffee Club” two person meal at $24.90. Which works out to be $12.50 for a main course and a coffee in the prestigious Paragon mall. Sounds like a good deal on Orchard Road. Here are pictures of the GSS special menu and some portions from the regular O’Coffee Club menu. We decided on the Baked Yakiniku Chicken Thigh and the Croque Madame.
The baked yakiniku chicken thigh was a very good dish. The skin was nicely browned and the meat was moist. Even at its regular price of $13.90, we think it is something we will happily order again. By the way the coffee that was served as part of the meal was also a good tasting coffee. Not some weak diluted version that some places dish out during a promotional set.
The Croquettes Madame was a less attractive dish. First impressions matter and the dish did not do well on this score. It looks like a sunny side egg placed on slices of bread. It tasted better than it looks but it was still not exceptional. There is a nice cheese flavour and the gooey egg yolk did help boost the taste. We would try something else on the next visit.
O’Coffee Club at Paragon is a nice place for breakfast on Orchard Road. There are no exotic dishes but the prices are wallet friendly. Take a table along the atrium and it is also a good place to people watch.
