Hoshino Coffee : NEW Brunch Menu and Seasonal Strawberry Pancakes!

Hand-drip coffee chain Hoshino Coffee has launched a new brunch menu that pairs its signature Souffle Pancakes and Omu souffle with familiar breakfast proteins such as angus steak, bacon sausages and salmon. There is a total of 6 different sets. If you aren't such a fussy meat eater, the Angus Steak Set ($19.80) offers decent quality meat without bursting your wallet.  
Arranged on a caramelized onion, the steak was succulent and tender, rich but not too fatty. As for the omelette, don't expect it to be like the semi runny form of Kichi Kichi but it was still cooked in the perfect oval shape with soft, moist innards- a mark of standard Japanese-style omelette.  

With toast soldiers and eggs gaining popularity in Japan, Hoshino Coffee served up its version called "Eggslut & Toast"($14.80) -- soft boil egg on a pool of mash potato and brown gravy with butter-slathered crusty white bread. The "Eggslut" was creamy and delicious but the bread could be given a longer toast in the oven for a crisp, buttery effect. 

If you like to go all-out for a sweet brunch, pick the Fruity French Toast ($12.80). Served with maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream, the French Toasts were pillowy and slightly on the chewy side. They were neither overly sweet nor greasy but it might be a better idea to serve them in a hot skillet, just like the French toasts from the regular menu, to keep them warm and fluffy. 

Both sets are served with a choice of soup: clam chowder, bisque or minestrone, as well as a side dish: marinated carrots or edamame and mentaiko mayo fusilli

In conjunction with Hoshino Coffee's 4th anniversary, a special menu has been launched and one of the dishes we've tried was the Fuwa Fuwa Hoshino Souffle with Beef Stew Doria ($17). While the egg melange was baked to a golden puffy state, I felt that the stew could be richer and more robust.

With its forte in souffle pancakes, one should not miss the seasonal Strawberry Souffle Pancake ($14.50 for single pancake/$17.80 for double pancakes). Resembling a beautiful strawberry shortcake, the thick pancakes were gratifyingly warm and tender, turning soft and moist after a while if you drizzle on some maple syrup.

There couldn't be a better finish to the brunch than this.
