The slang word “Skyve” conjures up memories of skipping class to enjoy the pleasures of youth, away from onerous duties and tedious work. And it’s these sweet stolen moments that Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar want to inspire once more in tired, busy executives. It’s not by coincidence that the bistro inhabits the former Monk’s Hill Secondary School on tranquil Winstedt Road. Just minutes away from Newton Circus and the Downtown, this is a very possible place to slip to for a few hours of “skiving”.
Head chef Vincent Teng is passionate about Sous-Vide cooking, and everything on his menu, from breakfast to dinner, is cooked this way, precise to the exact minute. The result is food that is extremely consistent in its flavours and preparation. The brunch menu here is especially strong, thanks to signature dishes like the Egg Benedict, which is cooked at exactly 62.5 degrees. And a leisurely meal is certainly the best way to appreciate the charms of Skvye.
