Muji coffee

In view of how hard it was to get hold of the Just Drink latte, seeing this muji coffee just made me want to buy and hope that it's just as good....


Which I did... But nope, nowhere comparable. The muji coffee was not thick enuff. It was also not flavourful enuff. The one with brown sugar tasted more like brown sugar water with a faint coffee taste. 

Kanshoku

always passed by this place and noticed they have truffle ramen, never got the chance to try it until today. 





There's a soup and dry version, I opted for the dry version...


I will say it's pretty good with a good amount of truffle. The charsiew was soft and a good amount of fats. I wouldn't say it's out of the world but it's pretty good for sure.

Portion was decent, service was pretty good.

The egg is the ramen egg and was nicely molten.

Also ordered a chicken karage...




Didn't quite like the chicken karage. Was a little too mashy for my liking. Couldn't really taste the chicken.

Rice & Fries

I have been missing the poached salmon from Rice & Fries! And the mashed potato that comes along with it. Brought van down and after one mouth, she said "this is homemade mash" and indeed and that's what I love about it! It's not those instant ones and it still has bits of potato in it. Super yummy! 


Van went for the crab risotto...


Also major thumbs up!

Always a good time and always like family at Rice & Fries!

Bingki

adjourned for bingsu!!

Love my watermelon bingsu from here!


they had the mango one.... 


and bunny's favourite injoemi....




Santa Fe Tex Mex Grill

Met Ken and her friend King for dinner. Ken sort of wanted to give me a belated birthday treat and she chose Santa Fe Tex Mex Grill at Marina South Pier.....




the restaurant we at level 3 of the boat and it was a very interesting place to have dinner. The view was beautiful but not for those with motion sickness and a pity, bunny has it! haha

so dinner was a relatively quick affair.



there was also live singing....



we ordered a truffle fries...



which wasnt fantastic.

the grilled pork belly.... the best item for the night!


the skin was crispy and i like that the bottom part was not overly marinated, it was pretty good though not the best. But best for the night.

sausage platter...



decent selection and taste.


salmon....



the salmon was also not bad.


requested for truffle mash potato that was part of one of their meat platter but was no part of the sides on the menu. they came like this...



i know from the angle it looks bit but its seriously miserably small. haha.. its like two and a half table spoon or less and they charged us $6. something that i probably can finish in 2 mouths..... :(



Brawn and Brains


In view of time and location, we decided to do our July date night at Brawn and Brains!



Quiet little cafe at Guillemard where the old badminton association was...



Bunny said they are famous for their cold brew...



Which was indeed not bad! It's not overly sweet and not overly acidic. Just that if I were to compare to Old Hen, Old Hen's one is much better, stronger in flavour and a tad bit sweeter. But overall Brawn's one is far better than a lot of others.




We ordered the molten eggs to share and it was amazing! 






The molten egg was topped with melted cheese, served with smoked salmon and avocado. It was a winning combo with rockets and very sweet cherry tomatoes on the side! We both loved it and will definitely be back again for this!


Langue De Chat


This is really quite nice! I can't say it's totally like 白色恋人 but it's that type of cookie and it's really pretty good! I wrongly bought the chocolate one previously which was still nice. Best thjng is, the inside is individually packed, great to keep in the office as a random snack when hungry or mouth itchy! 

Get it from your nearest 7-11 today!

Just Drink (7-11)

Noticed this popping out on my social media recently and it's another craze!


Proudly brought to you by 7-11, sold out almost nation wide. Brought a lot of business to 7-11 coz I already hearsay a lot of people have been going 7-11 hopping just to get a bottle. Also hearsay the prices have been speculated to $15 a bottle online (Duno how true, hearsay only).

Said to cost only about $1 in Taiwan, charging at $2.80 here in Sg 7-11 and 抄到 $15!! Sounds like a must try! Esp since I'm a milk tea lover! I mean, it's so hard to resist Teh Peng! 


So anyway I was so lucky, through a contact of mine, I managed to get a couple of bottles! 



It's like wow finally got my hands on them!

Hehe sorry can Hao Lian a bit...


I tried the milk tea first...



While the milk tea was nice, to be honest I wasn't impressed. It was just a not bad Teh Peng. 

But then the latte, that was amazing! The latte was so fragrant, can smell it even before consuming. We couldn't help but compare it to Old Hen's cold brew (which we really really like). Which this is a much cheaper alternative and much more accessible one (not now, after the craze is over).

And u know the biscuits on the top picture, there's a langue de chat. The white chocolate one is so good! Go check it out at ur next nearest 7-11!

Sin Hoi San


Headed down for supper with bunny and she was craving for rice and bitter gourd with egg so we went to Sin Hoi San...


bitter gourd fried with eggs....


which was pretty good and fulfilled her cravings.

the yue guang hor fun... 



also pretty good. it was wet. 

claypot tofu... 



the claypot tofu is very good. its soft and the sauce came with some saltish cube like fish. yummy!

the prawn paste chicken...


their prawn paste chicken was also pretty nice! Flavoursome enuff and the aunty was nice enough to help me request for no breast meat!

Mak's wanton noodles

Lunch after my course around the area. Mak's wanton noodles came over to SG probably awhile back and never got to come over till now...

Opted for the dry beef brisket noodle and a wanton soup on the side...




My verdict is it is pretty close to the Hk version. Noodle is springy and beef brisket was good. 

The wanton was decent.

Teppei

Teppei's DIY chirashi bowl!

Where I can opt for more whelk, scallop and add avocado! This is so divine, it can become an addiction! 



Obsessed with this now! Avail at teppei ion!

Breadsociety

Was over at ion for lunch and the queue for Bake Cheese tarts are as long as usual so I decided to try out those from Bread Society. There was no queue and there was a promo. $2.60 for one, buy five get one free!


It was actually pretty good! The crust was buttery enough, the cheese fillings were pretty good too. Best part was there was no queue!
