The dining venue tonight was set at D'Good Cafe, a lovely cafe with three stories, pretty decor and a manually-operated elevator. The 2nd story was where bar counter was, as well as the water and food collection points.We took the stairs up to Level 3, and I was surprised by the lovely little trinkets brightening up normal stairwell corners. It was really pretty overall - creating a little bit of fairyland cum vintage look to it all - flowers , postal boxes, etc. I glimpsed a long white swing on

We took the stairs up to Level 3, and I was surprised by the lovely little trinkets brightening up normal stairwell corners. It was really pretty overall - creating a little bit of fairyland cum vintage look to it all - flowers , postal boxes, etc. I glimpsed a long white swing on Level 2's seating area as well.

While waiting for *Sharona and *Nadine to arrive, we decided to start with cakes. I had the Strawberry Cheesecake (SGD$9.00) that came with a gelish / jellyish layer encrusting real fruits within. The cake was fluffy in its cheesy richness, and melted in the mouth. The red jellyish layer was not too sweet, and the strawberries added a lovely flavor to the cake.

*Chantal chose the Triplet Cheese Cake (SGD$9.50) - chocolate , cheese and rich dark chocolate (Oreo?) base topped with a chocolate macaroon atop. Texture was good - soft and sticky without being gooey, the cake managed to retain fluffiness despite its solid form. The flavors were lovely blend of chocolate and cheese, and the macaroon was not too sweet.

For mains, *Nadine had the Shimeiji Oysters Pasta - touch choice deciding between the Oysters Poached Egg Pasta and this, but this won eventually. The pasta was done well - springy and boungy, and the pearl oysters were fresh and chewy. The tiny mushrooms and salmon roe added to the texture and flavor of the pasta. It was a delicious treat, especially when *Nadine and I loved oysters.

I had the Baked Lemongrass Chicken (SGD$17.50) that was accompanied by mashed potato (with real potato chunks), mushrooms and zucchini. The chicken was rather tender, and the mashed potato was good. In fact, I'd say that the chicken was flavorful - just that the hints of lemongrass was weak, almost undetectable.
