If there is one thing that Singaporeans are constantly griping about, it’s how our nation has become too over crowed. And it’s not hard to understand why.
As of 2011, the population of Singapore is 5.18 million people, of whom 3.25 million (63%) are citizens while the rest (37%) are permanent residents or foreign workers. Source: Wikipedia
Restaurants and cafes that offer more privacy these days usually requires a premium but not at this cafe which is nestled in the more quiet part of Singapore, Yong Siak Street.
Located just across Forty Hands cafe in Tiong Bahru area, Social Haus is one of the latest addition to the quaint neighborhood of Yong Siak Street.
Some of it’s neighbors include Books Actually.
Nana and Bird, a fashion & creative multi-label store that stocks fashion and lifestyle products. Strangelets, a lifestyle design shop.
Social Haus offers a very simple food menu. All it’s food items are listed on this black board at the entrance of their restaurant.
They also offer a weekend brunch with 4 options.
- Haus Breakfast
- Eggs Benedict
- Rosti and Sausage
- Bacon and Toast
I ordered the Rosti and Sausage ($12) from their brunch menu. While the sausage tasted decent, I felt that the Rosti was too thin and lacked any “bite”. Dieter’s portion perhaps?
This was my friend’s 一百分 , 100 marks breakfast 🙂 The Haus Breakfast Special ($15), which consist of bacon, sausage, sauteed mushroom served with toast and 2 eggs, done in the way you like them.
What I liked about the place:
- quiet location which was not too crowded on a weekend;
- ample parking space with a public carpark just behind Forty Hands;
- simple food that satisfies (but portions are too small); and
- no GST and service charge
Social Haus is also a pretty child friendly restaurant. With food choices like fish and chips and beef stew, which kid would not enjoy them 🙂 Sophie enjoyed her sauteed mushroom on toast and kept asking for more, so need I say more? They also have high chair for those with young kids.
After a while, Sophie got a little wild and started shouting…
Much to my disapproval and embarrassment and I had to literally place a “gag” order!
Social Haus is worth checking out for the weekends. I’ll definitely be back to Yong Siak Street to try, Open Door Policy, which is just next door and pop over to Forty Hands for their much raved about coffee. Another review then 🙂

Have you been to Yong Siak and have a place to share as well? Do keep me posted if you know of other less crowd brunch places around Singapore.
Have a great weekend ahead! 🙂
