I had never heard of plant based calamari before and did not expect it to taste so good and be as chewy as squid. The ambience at Little Farms Bar and Grill at Serangoon Gardens is pretty nice especially after … Continue reading
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
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
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
A meal is elevated by condiments, like all kinds of chilli and sauces. I always need spice in my meals.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
I’m interspersing my posts about my very recent Perth trip with my current exploits in Singapore. I just had to post about the fantastic meal I had yesterday. This place is very popular and crowded and it’s a bit hard … Continue reading
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
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
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.
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
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
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
Had another wonderful day out with my cousin from Australia and B. So glad we could have a proper hawker meal and a wet version of Hokkien Mee which is what she likes best. There are also dry versions and … Continue reading
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
