Korio @ Far East Square, Telok Ayer – Grilled Sandwiches and New York Inspired Brioche Donuts

A fairly new entrant to Far East Square, Korio has been taking Singapore’s F&B scene by storm with its mouthwatering grilled sandwiches and New York inspired brioche doughnuts.

On my first visit to Korio’s hole-in-the-wall sized kiosk one weekend afternoon, nearly all sandwiches were sold out, and the display case was wiped clean of doughnuts. It took me another visit, also early on a weekday, to finally score those legendary sweets. Looking at the large crowd and 1-hour waiting times, one could easily forget that eating out ever took a hit from 2020’s coronavirus pandemic!

Come with an empty stomach and a generous amount of patience. The Grilled Cheese ($12) is a gooey amalgamation of melted cheese with caramelised onions. A true melt-in-your-mouth experience that explodes with the savoury and sweet notes of both ingredients. Amazing how such an unassuming combination could completely blow my tastebuds away on the first bite!

Another popular choice on Korio’s menu is the Breakfast Sammy ($12). An unapologetically messy sandwich, this hearty breakfast flavour oozes with sauce gribiche (eggs mayonnaise), American cheese, and crispy spam. While I found the sauce gribiche a touch too sour for my liking, the crispy spam sealed the deal with me and I certainly wouldn’t mind more of it in my  sammy!

Korio’s New York inspired brioche doughnuts are something to wake up early for, and for good reason. These doughnuts are usually the first to go whenever the kiosk opens for business. For something milder, go for the White Chocolate Coconut with Hazelnuts ($4.50).

My vote goes to the Caramelised Biscuit ($4.50), with its scattering of salt crystals and cookie butter glaze!
