Thanks to me being a member of Tung Lok Group, I received an email informing me about the opening of their newest restaurant, CAMO Cafe & Bar in the new SAFRA Choa Chu Kang.
CAMO which is short for “camouflage”, is a collaboration between SAFRA Singapore and TungLok Group. It is a cafe by day and transforms into a bar at night.
CAMO Cafe & Bar sounds like a good brunch spot, so I made a trip to SAFRA Choa Chu Kang one find Sunday morning to check out this new restaurant.
SAFRA Choa Chu Kang is located at the far left corner of Choa Chu Kang Park. It takes around 10-15 minutes to reach there from Choa Chu Kang MRT station.
I spotted CAMO’s bight white signage before I even stepped foot into SAFRA Choa Chu Kang. The cafe is located directly behind the drop-off turnabout and underneath the indoor swimming pool.
I’m assuming the inside of the cafe is made to resemble the army canteen with metal stalls where you place your order and collect your food. Even the food are served on stainless-steel plates.
There is a small display cabinet towards the back of the room displaying army uniforms.
As you can see from the menu, brunch is available daily till 2.30pm. There are also other all day items on the menu, but cocktails are sadly not available yet.
No brunch is complete without an American breakfast, which is otherwise known as CAMO Brunch (Fall In!) Platter [S$19.80] here.
You have the usual sausages, bacon, baked beans, eggs (sunny side-up/poached/scrambled/overeasy), hashbrown and two toasted brioche bread balanced with a rocket salad and roasted vine tomatoes dressed in sweet balsamic vinegar. I love that the two smoked sausages are bursting with juice and the toasted brioche breads are so crispy.
I also ordered CAMO Burger [S$20.80] from their All Day menu. Sandwiched between the soft buns are a thick Black Angus beef patty, streaky bacon, emmental cheese, lettuce, sliced tomato, BBQ sauce, caramelised onion, relish and pickles.
Be warned, it’s gonna get messy easting this burger. The juice from the patty, BBQ sauce, relish and pickles are going run down your hands and fingers.
I really wanted to order a cocktail but the cocktails are not available yet so I settled for Osmanthus Sencha [Hot S$4, Cold S$4.50]. I was kind of disappointed that the tea was served in a paper cup but it’s probably to fit in with the army theme of the cafe.
CAMO turns into a bar at night. While I don’t think there’s going to be live music (I don’t see a stage), it’s still a nice place to unwind with a few beers and soju.
