Samy’s Curry at Dempsey has Been Renovated & We had a Good Lunch There

Went by for lunch. It was packed and there was a queue as we left. This is quite the institution for Singaporean style South Indian curry on a banana leaf. I truly love the cabbage dhal, fish curry and Mysore … Continue reading

Patisserie G at Millenia Walk: Stunning Cakes

I didn’t have any cake but they were stunning to look at. The flat white I had was great, my partner found his latte too ‘heaty’ (acidic?). He can’t take stronger coffee like I can. The Cuban sandwich was nothing … Continue reading

#14. Simple Joys: trying something new on the menu & enjoying it

This was truly scrumptious. I am a creature of habit and always have the chilli vinaigrette dumpling noodles here. Usually when I choose something new I always regret it. But this time I was pleasantly surprised. Both the broth and … Continue reading

#13. Simple Joys: When they Don’t Forget My Spicy Condiments

A meal is elevated by condiments, like all kinds of chilli and sauces. I always need spice in my meals.

Angelina at Marina Bay Sands: Another Too Expensive Place

Staff were struggling here. We didn’t order the tiny cakes that cost at least $17 before tax and opted for a large basket of piping hot French fries instead. Pretty good but you could get much more for $13.50 at … Continue reading

Din Tai Fung Marina Bay Sands for the First Time

We’ve been to the other outlets many times and actually we prefer the paradise group for Shanghainese type cuisine – Xiao Long Bao and handmade noodles. Our opinion was confirmed once again that the Paradise group’s offering is superior. Not … Continue reading

Peranakan Meal at Pow Sing: Satisfying but Expensive

Decided to do a food post for a change. A lunch we had this month as my partner loves Peranakan food and anything that goes with steamed rice. He is not so into bread the way I am. Actually I … Continue reading

I Couldn’t Get Enough of the Special Chilli at Pu Tien (Jewel)

We ended up here because the other two China restaurant chains we tried required reservations or a very long wait. Have been to Pu Tien years before and thought the food was of high quality. Our usual fare is hawker … Continue reading

Afternoon Tea Buffet at Goodwood Park Hotel

I haven’t been here in a decade so the whole place looked quite different. We truly enjoyed the experience though and the sofa seating was cosy. The buffet spread was also not too far away and the server who attended … Continue reading

Miss Having Lunch Out With My Mum

She hardly likes to go out and even more so since the covid period, but when it comes to my medical appointments she likes to accompany me as my doctors and nurses know her well. She says they are always … Continue reading

Violet Oon: We Tried the Home Delivery to Celebrate a Birthday

It left us wanting more. The set was recommended for 4-6 people, but there were 7 of us. Everyone else said it was enough, but I guess I’m the greedy one because it was just so tasty. I à still … Continue reading

Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls at Dal Komm Cafe Centrepoint

I usually am not fond of salted caramel but these rolls were actually good and not overly sweet. A quiet and spacious place in town which is rare. Good comfy seats but the only downer is they won’t give you … Continue reading

Our Favourite Dim Sum at Crystal Jade Suntec City Branch

This was truly satisfying after a disappointing experience at Canton Paradise. I feel that the Paradise group does a superior La Mian or handmade noodles and spicy vinegrette dumplings, but for Cantonese food, especially Dim Sum, Crystal Jade can’t be … Continue reading

Dian Xiao Er at VivoCity

Pretty good meal as we haven’t had roast herbal duck in a while. The chilli always makes any meal better and I had 2 types so was very happy.

Nam Sing Hokkien Mee at ION

This lunch was extremely satisfying and I look forward to bringing my cousin here when she visits Singapore again. Portion size is small though and it’s very crowded at lunch hour. It was my first time at the ION Food … Continue reading

Marmalade Pantry at ION

Breaking up my posting on the Perth Trip to post some Singapore food adventures. Been craving for these cupcakes but felt underwhelmed this time. I’m not sure why. Perhaps due to some troubling news regarding my cathaport. Don’t care for … Continue reading

Char Siew Rice at Kim Heng Roasted Meat

This meal was so incredibly satisfying as I haven’t had this for more than 2 years (we both missed a lot of hawker food trying to stay safe during the covid uncertainty period). It was beyond tasty and I could … Continue reading

Feel So Happy Meeting with Two of My Cousins After Almost 4 Years

I have social anxiety, but I don’t feel it with people I’m comfortable with like my cousins. I practically saw them grow up, being the much older cousin. They were the cutest toddlers. It’s true what they say about cousins … Continue reading

Grateful for Relaxing Moments: Flat Whites & Lattes at Cosy Cafes

It’s when I feel the most relaxed outside. I like going back to the same places. Cafe Aux Bacchanale and Da Paolo Gastronomia. Familiar friendly faces, good quality and comfy chairs. I do have social anxiety as I imagine many … Continue reading

Tambuah Mas: Indonesian Food in Singapore (& A Visit to the Ophthalmologist)

This place has been around for decades, but I haven’t been here since the 90’s. Very delicious at the Paragon branch. My sister treated us after a visit to the ophthalmologist. Eyes were dilated, so everything was blurry. It still … Continue reading
