Fynn's



Lunch with Bunny at Fynn's! It was another impromptu decision, she came to pick me up after my appointment and she remembered how we saw this rather instagram worthy place on Bree's instagram!




this is the interior of the place and i love the marble tables and the modern decor. very instagram worth place indeed!










The cavetelli with octopus was not avail but they did it in beef ragout for us...



The flavour was good. Pasta texture was alright too. Not the bouncy texture I will wow over but it’s good enough.

The bbq pork rib bowl was special!




The pork rib can be a bit more tender but it’s overall decent. What’s so special is prob that they did a brown rice fried rice and it tasted good!



Overall, its a place i wouldn't mind revisiting. more for its decor though.

All Things Delicious



All things delicious is situated right beside Fika along Arab Street. And it’s also a Halal certified cafe. The gorgeous IG account was what drew us here for lunch, including their pretty plates used. 







The first thing that welcomed us was an array of Gorgeous cakes and pastries!




Like the name of the place, All Things look delicious!








There were quite a number of items on the menu to try! Lunch included choice of a free soup or dessert so we opted for one each!

The soup was some butternut squash which was really good. So good that someone refused to share!!!




Ordered the crab cake salad to start and it was surprisingly good. Salad was refreshing accompanied by the moist crab cakes. 











They have a very good soft hard boiled egg! I don’t know how they do it but it’s so good! Check out the soft yolk amidst the white!




Ordered the salmon rice bowl as well. Just the sight of the mushrooms they used won me over cuz it's Shimeiji! Hahahaha. Instagram worthy food in general. Not to the mention orgasmic soft boiled eggs. Lol






Bunny ordered the creamy salmon pasta with dill and her favorite capers. Nicely done as well. 







We also ordered a side of scrambled eggs to share and it was pleasantly runny and creamy. Not overdone unlike many places we've been to, and required us to give specific orders to have it done this way.







The sticky date pudding was really good too! Sweet and moist!






Oh something to note was how pretty their iced latte looked when served. Usually it's the hot drinks that's more photogenic but the iced hazelnut latte was gorgeous.

Osia

It was an impromptu decision to head over to Osia for dinner because we suddenly realised we had some vouchers to be utilized. It turned out to be a good decision because everything was great!







We were first served a complimentary Fermented Beancurd thingy...





Actually tasted like smelly tofu!



Bunny has been craving for tomato soup and this was their soup of the day. Great creamy texture. Ordered a second serving for bunny cuz she liked it so much. 






Actually, I loved it too! 


Cauliflower salad...




Despite being a fan of cauliflower, I wasn't particularly wowed by this. Not like it was bad, just not something I would think of coming back for.


Foie gras...





Loved the texture of the foie gras as they pan fried it with some flour/powder. Hahaha.The crispy outer.


Next up was the grilled seafood platter....






Decided on the seafood platter as it had the best of both worlds. Lobster and the grilled Fremantle octopus. Got to say the octopus is pretty good. Done just right where there texture is still springy. Bunny likes the visible charred taste (some places goes str to burnt) haha. 











Clams are also juicy and flavorful. Was so good that I was super tempted to order another serving for it too! 🤣🤣














The tenderloin was ok, juicy and not too tough but has reaffirmed my preference for rib eye. Tenderloin still a little too lean for my liking. Loved loved loved the hollandaise. Not overly sour with a strong fragrant buttery taste and creamy finish. 












We skipped desserts because we ordered too late and the soufflé takes about 40 mins to prepare.


Service is superb! We will so be back!

Punch

After our event, Bunny came to pick Ginny and me up! We were gonna go for coffee / brunch. A lady we met at the event overheard us looking out for Instagram worthy places and recommended Punch! 

We took the recommendation and got there! 

Tucked inside a small glass door along North Canal road...


The decor is simple and clean. I believe there are other corners with more instagram worthy areas but we just didn’t manage to head in to explore. We got seats around the second table and ordered away. 

But I really liked the service. The folks were so vibrant and friendly in personality! 


Food wise, they were good too!


This is their version of eggs Ben, only avail for weekends....






The overall combo of the poached egg, the smoked salmon and the toast was good. The toast was nicely buttered and there were apple slices above.





Grilled cheese sandwich!




The grilled cheese sandwich was not bad. Along with it is a tomato soup which was clear based that’s not bad too! It’s got bits of garlic like minced items in it.

Another item that caught all our eyes on the menu was the earl grey pancakes....




Topped with a poached pear coated with chocolate. The earl grey pancakes were good to just eat it on its own!

We ordered additional sides of grilled mushrooms....



The mushrooms are SO GOOD! 

So good we ordered 3 portions!!! It’s seasoned with rosemary and thyme and with different variations of mushrooms! Super good!

The drinks...






Definitely a place worth revisiting!
