The best avocado toasts in Singapore for brunch this weekend

It’s been called “healthy yet ever-so-slightly indulgent,” a meme, and the reason why Millennials can’t afford to buy a home. Enter the avocado toast, and some prime examples from these top nine places in Singapore.

Essentially an open-faced sandwich with smashed or sliced avocado spread across it, avocado toast (or avo toast to fans) became a global flashpoint in 2016 when an Australian columnist said “young people” should be saving for homes instead of spending “(AUD)22 a pop and more” on the dish. It’s similarly pricey at many restaurants and cafes here, but since 20 percent of our salaries disappear into the CPF blackhole, feel free to splurge away.

Do it at places like Avorush, which places the dish as its centrepiece, as well as Australian-inspired cafes like Bearded Bella, Common Man Stan, Sarnies and Toby’s Estate. Craft coffee joints also make it one of their brunch specialties, which you can have from Forty Hands, Grids, Group Therapy Coffee, and The Food Peeps.

1 /9


We’ll kick off with somewhere that’s wholly devoted to the avocado: Avorush. The restaurant puts the fruit into everything from breads to bowls, but the Back to Basics (smashed avo, chilli flakes, multigrain sourdough slice) is avocado toast in its purest form. Other variations include Goodfellas (with scrambled eggs and feta), and The Pacific (Moroccan salmon and cherry tomatoes).

From the alleys of Melbourne comes Bearded Bella, an Australian-inspired cafe that dabbles in global flavours. Likewise, their Smashed Avocado spans sweet potato crisps, quinoa and pomegranate together with feta and toasted nuts and seeds. Bacon costs extra, but it’s worth it.

Common Man Stan takes its Aussie roots seriously. The cafe started out as a partnership between Five Senses Coffee Australia and Spa Esprit Group here, and their food is just as vibrant as the atmosphere Down Under. Similarly, their avocado toast is brilliantly hued with pickles, chilli flakes, and micro-greens topping creamy avocado and umami Marmite mushrooms.
