Mon Bijou

And because the food at mon bijou is so good, I brought Detchie there!

the place was surprisingly much more packed than friday night.

cold crab truffle ramen...

the dish is chilled. The ramen is tossed in truffle oil, it tastes really really good! it wasn't overly oily and the texture was springy. Very awesome dish!

garden pasta which was a cream based mushroom pasta.... 

simple but very comfort kinda food. Simple yet done very right!

and finally got to try the crab cakes egg ben! apparently their speciality here.... 

which i can see why! the crab cakes were great, the poached egg was just right and the hollandaise sauce was amazing... 

i super loved the hash browns too! nicely fried with nice potato bits inside, very good!

their french toast is damn amazing! It is damn soft and has sugar crystals in some bites. We loved it!!


for me to revisit a place that quickly, the food must be good. and i must say everything i've tried here is just amazing and excellent! Price wise its damn reasonable as well. I think i will be back soon again!

Mon Bijou

really ought to thank my friend who brought me here last week for lunch. the french toast was AMMMMMAZZZZING! it was constantly on my mind so when we decided to head some place for a good dinner to end the work work, i suggested this place!

Mon Bijou is located at level 2 of Claymore Connect, operated by Orchard Hotel.... 

honestly, if not because my friend brought me here, i don't think i will patronise this place coz of the location. But after that day, the french toast won me over.

And after today, the food in general will keep me coming back!! Everything is good!

Like for a start, we had their cold crab ramen in truffle sauce.... 

portion was great! and every mouthful a delight! drizzled in truffle oil, the ramen was springy and texture was just right! We loved it!

we had wanted to try their signature crab cake eggs ben but it was out so we had the truffle scrambled eggs... 

tell me the yellow joyful scrambled eggs did not make your heart skip a beat! ahaha.. that colour and texture, MMMmmm! the hash brown that came with it was super good too!

the black parts were toast, i think some charcoal bread or something. Very yummy all day breakfast! If this was so good, i can't imagine how good the signature crab cake eggs ben must be!


the carbonara was so good! Simple comfort food thats so so good!

Duck confit!

Been awhile since i had duck confit and their duck confit is ON POINT! the duck is juicy and the skin is crispy! Very good! the mash was decent and overall very reasonable pricing!

Because crab cake benedict was not available, we ordered a crab patty burger instead... 

which proved to be fabulous! The crab patty had that strong crab taste, very very good. the truffle fries was also good!

and of course, we HAD TO HAVE THE TOAST!!!



they agreed with me that the toast was amazing! the brioche was soft and warm, drizzled with maple syrup and it was just sooooo good! a must try!

a great meal to end the busy work week! so fulfilling!

Park Bench Deli

I heard loads of good reviews of this place such that I just had to come by. I was lucky to be early so I beat the CBD lunch crowd!

The server was super friendly and gave out this really positive energy, I love the place already!



One top recommendation I got for this place was the cheese steak!


And it was as good as it was raved about. There was a generous amount of the cheese steak and they were a mouthful. The beef was cheesy and the texture was just amazing! A must try!

We also tried the cubano...


Great great sandwiches! U lucky CBD folks!

House of Seafood

After days of Taiwan food, we were craving for something more local and light. My friend suggested the 白米粉 from House Of Seafood at Punggol Waterway...





Dishes here were overall decent. The white bee Hoon was pretty ok as well. A place I will consider coming back.

Ikki (Taiwan)

This place came highly recommended by Bree. She said its cheap and good.

We googled and found the outlet nearest to our hotel...

i realised this place is very much the Tao Restaurant / Dozo / The Clan kind of concept. The set lunch kind.

and i also realised restaurants like these usually have very good service.

When we first seated, everyone was served a pot of soup...

it felt like some fish soup.

Shall let pictures do the talking.... 


















it was quite a spread and food was generally decent though nothing that really wow-ed us. Its probably worth a one time visit but not sure if i will revisit.

庙口猪血糕 (Taiwan)

Right outside raohe night market...


The very first thing I saw ....



Eagerly bought it! Tasted like some kueh, savory kind, couldn't taste the pig blood. Wasn't to my liking so I couldn't even finish it. Haha
