Unicorn Cafe (Bangkok)



We managed to find a pocket of time to fulfill my wish of heading to the unicorn cafe! 

I love Grab in BKK! It’s so convenient and I love that they have these cafe recommendations on the app itself! Makes it so easy peasy for tourists!

And if u can see, yes I’m wearing a unicorn dress! Upcoming on Juneoesque soon!


Inside, everything was all Things rainbow! Even the cakes and pastry!





Keeping in mind that we have lunch appointments later but we were so hungry, we shared a burger!

Burger with unicorn colors...


Honestly the beef patty was not bad!


The lychee galaxy coloured drink was ok too! 


Hot chocolate......



...... with loadddddddddssssss of cream! More than half the cup was cream!!! But of coz, Instagram worthy! Just not that good to drink?

The actual chocolate was thick n not bad!


Unicorn cafe, checked! Happy!

Royale

Because the birthday boy likes chap chai peng, birthday dinner i tried to explore places that feels like it. Peranakan somehow came to mind and upon checking on Chope, i found Royale! 

Located at Mercure Bugis....



They have a selection of cold seafood which honestly what really drew me over was the fact that they had scampi on their online menu! 


The prawns were pretty good and fresh!


The scampi however was a little too hard n small for my liking...


U can also make your own Rojak!


And some savory items...












There’s also a live bbq station area where you can order grilled sting ray, sotong and otah...



Overall quite value for money! Not the super atas buffet kind but good enuff!

Atlas

It was a long thought of activity - HIGH TEA! The venue was meant to be at Fullerton but we came across Atlas on social media and decided this place looks very instagram worthy too!

After booking the place, we also read some reviews of this place. Quite a few horror stories about the service but we decided to still try our luck! I will say overall the service we received was quite alright.

Here, at Singapore's Gotham City! Parkview Square!





The place is amazing! Wonderful ambience with a touch of class! 



we went for the high tea going at about $50ish... 






first to start is a mushroom soup like amuse bouche...



along with it is a tier of high tea canap├ęs... 



to end off, there was also some home made ice cream cubes...

Pura Brasa


Timothy and Jefrince asked me out and selected Pura Brasa! In fact, I recall this as one of the places they shortlisted for last year as well!

We finally made it this year! And I guess it’s good coz it’s probably much more crowded last year!! 

The first dish that arrived was the ribs. It was a huge slab and importantly, it’s sooooooooo good! It was meaty and importantly, it was savoury!!! It’s not Sweet like most other ribs. It’s savoury seasoned with salt and pepper!





The paella was seafood paella...


Which was nice but not extraordinary.

Dessert was some chocolate puff...


And the molten chocolate lava cake with ice cream...


Thank you guys! For the dinner and great conversations!

I will be back for the ribs!

All Things Delicious



Finally made it back to All Things Delicious for lunch! 



I have such affinity with the folks of this place and I really like how they well they do their food and their social media!

We were offered a nice serving of their raya biscuits..


They are soooo good! I especially love the sugee and the gula Melaka cookies! Sadly the sugee is sold out already! The gula Melaka cookies are crisp and very tasty!


Aside from the cookies, while waiting for our guests, we also couldn’t resist ordering the gula Melaka scone to share...


It’s sooooo good too!

Rachel had the beef sandwich and green pea soup....


Which the green pea soup was really good. Didn’t get to try the beef sandwich coz was too full.

For me, I had the crab cakes!


The crab cakes were good and the salad was refreshing. But what wow-ed me was the garlic bread! It was so good! The garlic flavour was intense and the bread was nicely toasted!

We were also recommended the Chee cheong fan...


Which has proved to be as interesting as the recommendation! It’s kale with chee cheong fan! 

The meal was a delight! 

But what came as a surprise was that Donna the pastry chef saw from my ig that it’s my birthday month and surprised me with this!


Awwwwwwww!!!


Thank you Donna! That was such a surprise and so sweet! Importantly the cake was so good! Moist chocolate cake topped with hazelnut cream. Love it!
