Spicy Sausage Gumbo

1. Spicy Sausage Gumbo
Buried somewhere under all those grilled veggies, quinoa and our TGS no-flour, no-butter, tomato “roux”, is a juicy german bratwurst waiting to burst in your mouth with every bite. The kind that you save for last. This one is for you, Maria.

Portobello Lava Cloud Egg
2. Portobello Lava Cloud Egg
Because poached eggs are so 2015, gurl.
This is a lava soufflé egg white omelette, stuffed with roasted veggies and a RUNNY YOLK, all gently sat atop a giant parmesan portobello.
To enhance quality of life, ask to pair it with some smoked salmon, applewood bacon, or honey ham.

Avocado Mutant Ninja Cheesecake

Fanciest dessert we’ve ever made ~ our ode to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014!!! The dome-shaped very healthy, very light and fluffy Avocado Yoghurt Egg White Cheesecake is to resemble a turtle’s half-shell, as well as to celebrate the new stadium opening. 2-in-1 yo SUCH COWABUNGA, VERY MAJULAH! With fancy coconut macaroons as “feet” and Gula Melaka caramel for a touch of local flavour. So hipster hor? Gotta stay relevant lah hor.

Further mutation experiments in the last decade have turned ninja turtles into turtle-shaped cheesecakes.

The next couple of days we also have sausage-stuffed portobellos, atop a fancy tomato carpaccio salad, available as an all day breakfast. When we say all day, we mean all day, from the time we open until we close shoppe.

Feel like havin' cheesy stuffed 'shrooms for breakfast? Why not!

To kinda sorta celebrate Hari Raya, we’ve made a melty salmon croquette “bege-dill”. It’s basically our (in)famous Ugly Salmon Cakes made begedil-style, levelled up with lots of mozzarella and dill ~~ hence “bege-dill”…. Geddit?? GEDDIT??!!

BEGE-DILL hahahahahahaha  Are we the only ones who find it funny?

Next up – now, we’re not not saying this just cuz we own the place but honestly, this is SRSLY so so so so so so SO comforting ~ Anchovy Laksa Pesto Chicken, made by Jo-Anne “The Lady” Slug.

So comforting and no carb, so you can feel super extra good about it

If you have a chance to meet Jo-Anne Slug, you'll know why we call her The Lady. Jo-Anne exudes wisdom calmness dharma karma Aung San Suu Kyi loving kindness out of every pore.  If you ever meet Andrew Slug, you'll also know why he's called The Tramp... (not so much a spaghetti-and-meatball-eating kind of tramp, but more of a fabulous pink feather boa kind of tramp...)

That’s about it. Ending yet another pointless post this week with our weekly specials. We launch them every Wednesday although very often we don’t tell you until it’s too late and you’ve already made other plans. They’re usually available through Sunday, and sometimes Monday or Tuesday if you shower regularly.

Mon 28 Jul is a public holiday and we have a Flea Market happening. FIRST SLUGS, NOW FLEAS??! What other creepy crawlies are you guys gonna come up with next???

Note to self: stop imagining imaginary conversations with self on a public blog. Okbyez.

“I’m one of those X-Men with C-grade superpowers”

Do you have friends who take ages to reply to you? Like between 48 hours to never. And then miraculously one day you get an almost instant reply, and you’re like “Whoa they love me!” but turns out it’s only coz they’re on the porcelain throne and have nothing better to do. OR WORSE – ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE PEOPLES???

Well. As it turns out, yours truly always gets instant replies. Only because I have a sixth sense for when my friends are making that long distance call, if you know what I mean.

X-Men with C-grade superpowers

My superhero name is "Lucky". What's yours?

We all have superpowers. It’s all a matter of whether you care to acknowledge them or not.

As a collective group of SuperSlugs, our special C-grade superpower is… dreaming up weird combinations of food and giving them glamorous names and fancy descriptions.

Such as Low-fat Carrot Vichyssoise topped with toasted sesame. On Twitter we even add a #superfood hashtag to it. We’re so relevant it hurts.

It's just carrot soup, peoples. Do you even know how to pronounce 'vichyssoise'? I don't. (Speaking da English is not one of my superpowers)

Then there’s the Homemade Chia Seeded Honey Yoghurt. Selling point? Homemade (yes we make our own yoghurt). And chia seeds, the latest fitness foodie craze. We know this because we read the Straits Times.

This could be a C-grade superpower too. "Yo bro, I can have yoghurt for dinner without feeling like a wuss. CAN YOU, HUH, CAN YOU??" *flexes*

To further prove our C-grade superpower-ness, we held an innocuous mac & cheese hostage, pelleted it with hand-rolled meatballs, smited it with Marmite (of all things), and finally interrogated it with an egg and lots of mozzarella. It survived the ordeal, emerged victorious and is now known as a “Mac & Cheese with Muscle“.

Finally, you can’t go wrong with the Super Combo of Nutella, bananas and toasted almonds. Perfect as either a pre-run boost or post-run treat.

You can't go wrong with Nutella. Period.

We summon our superpowers every week on Wednesday evening and they usually last through Sunday.

9 - 13 July
available all day, every day 9 – 13 July

We’re looking for more people with C-grade superpowers to join our team of X-Slugs. We’ll be at the ST Jobs career fair this weekend 12-13 July, Booth E22 at MBS halls D & E. If you know someone whose superpowers are yet unrecognised and underdeveloped, sacrifice them to us. Or if nothing else, come say Hi to lovely Jo-anne Slug and affable Andrew Slug.

We're at Booth E22. In case you hadn't noticed.
