Bees Knees @ The Garage






Arranged a date with Ginny to bring her over to Bees Knees for the super awesome papardella, also to thank her for her help in helping to design my super pretty name card!

 
 

And yes, follow me follow me on instagram and Facebook!


So yes, Ginny did up the design for me! She was such a pro at it and today is an appreciation for her!


And so, we ordered our drinks...

Her latte...



My peanut butter Nutella milk shake...





The milk shake is so awesome! It's thick and not overly sweet with the fragrance of nuts and peanut better. It's super good! 

We tried their wagyu salad....




The beef salad is probably the only thing not to our liking today. The sauce is a bit sweet and the beef didn't have much of a beefy taste.

The papardelle that we came here for....




A closer look...




As soon as ginny tried it, she said "oh man this is awesome, I love it!"

It's true! Their pasta is so bouncy in texture! This is good quality pasta and the sauce is the very natural home made tomato sauce that's not overly thick. It just blends so well with the pasta. A must try!


We wanted to try their brunch food but we were a little late so we ordered another pasta instead....



With this vongole and my previous try on their carbonara, I can safely tell u, they make damn awesome pastas! Even their spaghetti is bouncy in texture! 

Importantly, the vongole was so fragrant! The clams were of a good size and the sauce married the pasta so well. The vongole was really good!

We also ordered a waffle to share....





The rice crisp and waffle was pretty good. Probably I didn't really like chocolate sauce but they had loads of it. But overall it was nice.

Bunny last minute came to join us and she rushed down simply coz she wanted that papardelle!


She also ordered her favourite churros....





I'm not a churros lover but she is. So I was initially disapproving of this order coz we already had the waffle but it was the best thing ever!


This is totally unlike any other churros I've tried! It's thick and the exterior is crisp and the inside is so soft!!

The texture is so divine! In fact Ginny said that like me, she doesn't really fancy churros but it was so good we almost wanted to make bunny order another one! It was really super good!





We are definitely coming back again for the churros and papardelle!! For sure!!

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!
