The Coffee Academics


It was a quick coffee session at the Coffee Academics....

 

I don't know when they opened up at Raffles City but it had a rather nice interior. 

The Coffee...


 

I had the one infused with Pandan. I think it's called Java? It's not bad.

We shared a dessert and the server recommended the gypsy...

 


It's actually French toast with caramel/butter scotch. The caramel was so so fragrant. I can understand why the server recommended this!

Beauty In A Pot



A 2am supper thought after watching Charlene Choi eat steamboat, it was Beauty In A Pot! 


The previous restaurant manager redeemed himself by giving us the final last rock melon...

 



Beauty pot steamboat is one of our favourite! Be it soup or the selection of meat and their sweet rock melon!

+Sixty Six

We found the fluffiest egg omelette today! Over at +Sixty Six located at 1A Short Street...


 


It's located very near to the Rochor Beancurd, if you know where.


But sadly, as we enjoyed the egg and the rest of the food (which all was good!) and couldn't resist giving our compliments to the owner, we were informed that due to a slow down in business, they might have to fold soon. That is so very sad! We are hoping that they will shift instead of fold because this is by far the most authentic Thai place after that favourite street food stall in Thailand closed down too. 



This place is very small, a very cosy little place. The prices are also very reasonable. For lunch, they have lunch sets at $9.90 which includes things like a green curry with white rice and a drink!

Their ala carte drinks like Thai milk tea etc is $3.50, as my friend Purple would quote, it's even cheaper than pasar malam! 


Anyway, this is the amazing egg omelette with rice...


 


It was so fluffy and super yummy! With minced meat inside...

 



This was only $6! And the prices here are all nett, no service or gst charges!


We also ordered a fish maw soup which was going at $19.90...



 

The fish maw soup was really good. Although this wouldn't be something that I'd typically order, it was surprisingly very good. The thickness of the soup was just right and the soup was really tasty. Not a lot of fish maw but ok for the price.


This is one of my favourite here! It's their green curry fried rice!!


 


It tastes great! Slightly spicy and has that slight green curry taste. Portion is huge, good for sharing!


Their green curry...

 


Great in taste, generous in the amount of meat and reasonable in terms of prices!


Another dish that we ordered that proved to be super good was this salted egg fried 四季豆!

 


It was quite special! With the salted egg 'sandy' texture and the usual haybe hiam kinda taste, it's really good!

I really hope they don't chup lup but shift instead!

Geylang Serai 2017

Fulfilling our annual tradition to head down to Geylang Serai!

Every year there seems to be new food trends showing up here! We didn't exactly cover the whole area but we were lucky to come today. It's HOT but not as crowded as the weekends (or so we heard)

So here are some of the stuff we tried!


 

Anything rainbow or galaxy sells now, correct? I was torn whether to try it or not. I mean, how does it taste?

But I was sold the minute the lady told me it's Nutella milk shake!

 


It wasn't as pretty as the picture on display but ok, I can accept it. Taste was not bad for a gimmicky product. I could taste the Nutella except I couldn't help feel like I'm drinking a lot of colouring so we didn't really finish it. Haha

 

 


Q was too long for this rainbow bagel burger so we didn't get to try it but got this shot from their pick up point!


 



Fried milk! 


 

The fried milk tasted like fried panna cotta. Not too bad! Served with caramel sauce.


The pandan flavored ones were served with gula melaka. Both were not bad!


Raclette cheese!


 



 


 


$12 worth and u can have Raclette over sausages or roasted potatoes or both. I opted for only sausages. The Raclette wasn't charred enuff. The sausage were mediocre cocktail sausages. But good enuff for a try.


That's about all we tried, hoping to head down again this year!

Por Kee

Today, ah yee is giving me a birthday treat! Initially, she suggested JB Ah Meng but the thought of Cze Char just reminded me of Por Kee! I so miss the pork ribs! So Por Kee it was!




Dinner at Por kee was great! That's also why Por Kee is one-of my favourite cze char place!

Bean sprout with salted fish...



Essence of chicken frog leg...



This is really good! The essence of chicken became like a soup, so good in flavor! 



Roasted chicken...




The skin is so crispy, so thin, so good! The meat is tender and it's great! 


And of course, the champagne pork ribs! U can choose from the big or small ones. My big pork rib that's like a pork chop!




It's tender and juicy, oh so good! Por kee lived up to expectations!



And their signature tofu...




Homemade and incredibly good too!

They are very selective in offering the prawns in egg omlette. When it's too busy they refuse this dish so I'm glad we were early...

Le Castella

Sweet bunny went to Q and got me Le Castella Cake!






It's really soft and fluffy, reminds us of the old sch 鸡蛋糕!  But probably not worth the Q!

Nude Seafood


Dinner is with Kaizhi and Jiahao to celebrate mine and Jiahao's birthday! We are heading to Nude Seafood over at MBFC!



The dinner plates....










From Luzerne and can be purchased from www.luzerne.com !

We ordered two set dinners which included a starter, a mains, one ramen and a dessert per set!


For the first starter, we went for the scallop and Korean fried chicken...




The scallops were nicely seared, very yummy! The fried chicken was with a slight chilli like sauce but it's not very spicy. It's really good. The dish also comes with cous cous. Overall we liked it!




Our other starter was the soft shell crab and fried fish...



The chilli sauce that came with it reminds me of my old school Tuckshop Malay stall chilli sauce. It's a little sweet and goes really well with the fried fish!



For mains, we went for the Ocean Trout!

In fact, it was this picture of the Ocean Trout I saw on their social media that I couldn't get it off my head!



THAT SALMON!

Omg! Sous vide style for sure!








The salmon is awesome! As good as I visualized it to be! 

And our other main was the garoupa. It comes with a very light broth. The garoupa was fresh and lightly fried. The mushroom was great and it all went very well with the broth...








The next course was the matcha soba...





This is SO GOOD!! It's matcha and I can literally taste the matcha! Served also in a light soya broth, it's fantastic! I love it!

We ordered both choices of the dessert...




I really liked the mango, coconut and Thai basil. The coconut ice cream and the sago was so good! 

Chocolate, blueberry and thyme ice cream!




Yes, u heard right! Thyme ice cream! It's soooooo unique!! 

The thing about dining at Nude Seafood is also about their staff, the passion they have for the food they serve. 




Fukusen




The cousin and I celebrate our birthday over lunch! She was craving for omakaze but I didn't have the luxury of time, it was a strict one hour so we decided that Fukusen was it! Not like Fukusen was a compromise just that we've been there and we both enjoy checking out new places!

But really, Fukusen is awesome! It's quiet, food is great and it's near my office!





The very awesome foie gras chawanmushi. It's not like a tinge of foie gras only. Every mouthful you can taste the foie gras! It's very good!




Salmon belly...



Every mouthful a delight!

And right when we seated, the server updated us that the uni is fresh and just arrived today! It's almost a must to order their uni don! 


So we had both the uni don and the scallop don....








The scallop don had foie gras aburi and uni and its crazy crazy good! 


The uni don...








Generous, sweet uni! Some places their uni really suck but over here it's amazing! 


Fukusen is a comfortable lunch place with really good food!
