Surrey Hills Grocer @ Upper Jurong Road, Boon Lay – Australian-Style Cafe and Grocer Situated in the Far West

Singapore’s cafe scene has expanded to the far corners of the west, with Surrey Hills Grocer, an Australian-style cafe and grocer setting up shop in none other than Boon Lay. Helmed by ex-banker Pang Gek Teng who first earned her food business chops in Down Under, it boast farm-to-table brunch staples and exclusive Australian produce at competitive prices.  


Surrey Hills Grocer’s brunch menu is straightforward, comprising usual suspects such as avocado toast and eggs benedict. The all-day menu is available during lunch and dinner time and includes mouthwatering selections of sandwiches, burgers, and pastas.

The Tasmanian Salmon ($26++) is the priciest item on the all-day menu, with slow-cooked sashimi-grade salmon that blends well with the earthy-tasting mushroom reduction barley grains. The texture of the barley grains is risotto-like, and the marinated roe adds a nice, umami touch to the dish.

While portions could be more generous for its price point, I did enjoy the freshness of the salmon, and the dish’s comforting notes. This is certainly a guilt-free option for avid cafe hoppers.

For drinks, the Strawberry Watermelon and Rose Oolong ($7++) is a refreshing concoction that is not overly sweet.

I’m all for new cafes popping up elsewhere other than the east and central areas, and Surrey Hills Grocer is a pretty decent entry as cafes go. A little on the pricier side, but great if you’re working in the area and looking to treat yourself to some good ol’ Australian-style brunch!
