More about Selfish Gene Cafe, Singapore

With a philosophy of not serving anyone food that he wouldn’t eat himself, hence the name Selfish Gene Cafe, the chef (call him Gene!) over at this cosy joint in Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar may be selfish but this results in a menu jam-packed full with quality cuisine. You will find everything from breakfasts – options include the Whole Lot breakfast which, as the name suggests, features it all – sausage, scrambled egg, bacon, hash browns, mushrooms, mesclun and multigrain toast, to lunch and all day choices.

On Fridays, the special dinner menu features a range of options from classic Italian pastas like carbonara and spaghetti Bolognese to Asian-inspired dishes such as grilled chicken or pork collar fillet served with pink slaw, soy-honey vinaigrette and truffle mash. Famous in Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar for their homemade cakes, this Craig Road cafe draws in a crowd after their sugar fix, and you will find a selection of tasty treats on the menu which changes daily, all freshly baked every day.

Relatively hearty portions and scrambled eggs are nicely done! Enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing catch-up over brunch without the crowd after 1pm on a Saturday.

Nice and quiet on a weekend afternoon for brunch. The breakfast platter was great and portion big enough even for a guy. Service crew was cordial and attentive. Thumbs up!
