Located along Robertson Quay, Soi 60 has indoor and outdoor seating. Ample tables and ongoing music, with the typical decorations of a Thai restaurant being scrubbed away in Soi 60, giving a more modern and vibrant ambiance.
Thai Iced Tea ($8.00). I'm not really a taker for extremely sweet-drinks, and Soi 60's iced tea is just well-balanced in terms of its sweetness. If you are fond of sweet drinks, Thai Iced Tea might leave you a little disappointed.
If you are of those who thinks salmon has a fishy smell, the seasonings added by Soi 60 can make you enjoy the soft chunks of salmon which still enable you to relish the essence of salmon.
Crispy Duck Pancake ($12.00). Besides the roll of duck meat wrapped together with Thai herbs and black vinegar reduction sauce aside for dipping. The surprise is with the lychee fruit in it, which may seem to be a weird combination, but turned out pretty fine.
Mixed Seafood ($24.00), consisting of scallop, prawn, squid, chilli, lime leaf, and glass noodles. Although the Mixed Seafood's glass noodles is not a gravy-intensive dish, each of the seafood is fresh, and the glass noodles though averagely moist, is elastic and tangy.
Iberico Pork ($26.00) is slow cooked with Thai spiced crust, pickled ginger, and young ginger salad. The overall dish taste to me like pork being sprinkled with crushed black pepper, and each piece of Iberico Pork is crisp on the outer and minimal juiciness in it.
Fresh Spring Rolls ($10.00), consists of northern Thai sausage, Thai herbs, and peanut hoisin sauce. A refreshing and nutritious spring roll infused with sausage to make the entire spring roll not so vegetarian.
Black Sticky Rice ($10.00) with fresh mango and coconut cream. The rice seems like a mixture of glutinous rice and brown rice surrounded by coconut cream, with half a load of really fresh mango fruit placed on top, and finished with coconut shredding. Overall it looks like the Pulut Hitam which used to be one of my favourite breakfast when I was still in primary school.
Thai cuisine is widely-known for its spiciness, but Soi 60 almost did away the conventional idea, as we did not really find any spicy food throughout our meal, making the empty red chilli a nice addition to the presentation.

Super Loco, is a restaurant cum bar, which focus to serve authentic Mexican food. I myself has not tried Mexican cuisine before, and thus I held a decent amount of excitement on my way there.
Wildberry Smoothie ($11.00) is a mixture of blueberry, raspberry, redcurrant and chia seeds. Personally, I wouldn't make another order of this smoothie. It isn't very sweet, but I don't find this thirst-quenching enough for me.
Super Rancheros ($20.00). It has free-range eggs served in a corn tortilla with bacon, ham, cheese and tomato salsa. On first look, it looks tempting and delicious to me. Unless you are a corn lover, this dish might disappoint you.
Pulled Pork Torta ($15.00), is made of juicy slow-cooked pulled pork, super slaw, Mexican beans, apple and habernero mayo. A burger-like dish, with indeed juicy pulled pork, and thinly-sliced green apples. Something unique to me, as I have seen decent number of burgers with tomato slices, but apple is still my first.
Super Churros ($12.00), is one out the three desserts available in Super Loco's brunch menu. Although we requested for the dessert to come together with the mains.
Well, it's freshly made to serve! 5 warm and fluffy churros coated with sugar, and with orange and mescal sauce for dipping. Again, this is the first churros of my life, and I think I have grown in love with it. Tad crispy outer (definitely not because of the crunchy sugar bits) and soft inside gives a resemblance of our traditional Chinese breakfast, Chinese Cruller. Super Churros is exactly the same as Chinese Cruller in terms of the way of eating, except you dipped with sauces. It might not be a favorable dish among the elders, mainly due to the sweet sauces and also the sugar coating.

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/07/le-halo.html
I was surprised to find that the table are those old-fashioned sewing machine which my family used to have it. In addition, the chair cushion is familiar to me too as my grandma love sewing something similar for the entire family.
Other than being a cafe, Le Halo is also a vintage retail shop. Most items displayed in the shop is available for purchase, while prices are not stated prominently, crew are always around to assist you with utmost patience and service.
Piggy Stew ($11.50) uses pork loin mixed with carrots and potatoes. Stew is not too thick but the amount might not be sufficient if you prefer to dip your 6 toasted breadsticks into the stew before consumption.
Otah Egg ($8.50) has a layer of Muar otah smeared on the toast, and topped with a sunny side up. While munching on this, Wheeler's Yard came to my mind, with it's Otah Burger that can't kept me eating without comparison.
Kueh Lapis ($1.50). A small portion of the kueh lapis, which I feel is below my expectation. I had kueh lapis before which is firm and yet taste a little fluffy and soft. Those at Le Halo is firm too, but taste like it has been toasted before brought to table.
Strawberry Mousse ($5.50). We had actually wanted Orange Mirror but was told later on that the cake was not found to be fresh and thus suggested Strawberry Mousse. We took their lead and I think it was a good choice.
Strawberry Mousse is much better than the Keuh Lapis, where the strawberry portion is made like pudding and the sponge portion is fluffy!
While food may be average, such vibrant-colored cafe is sure to be well-liked by kids, it is also a chilling place for teenagers and adults to gather on a table and chat away while eating on their food and embrace themselves into the "cosy corner". It can also be a place for vintage-peeps to drop by and see if any of the items interest you.

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/06/mortons-steakhouse.html

Located at Mandarin Oriental Singapore, the hotel beside Marina Square and opposite The Floating Platform, it can be considered quite accessible and a great hotel to view the beautiful Singapore Skyline at night. With such an amazing view, food contained is definitely more than just average!
Morton's Steakhouse is much popular for its steak of course. Serving only the highest grade of aged USDA & Australian beef selections and taking great effort into preparing the steaks for diners, only makes us go right for the steaks, and nothing else.
Potterhouse Steak at 24 ounces ($117.00). Served medium-rare.
Center-Cut Prime Ribeye at 16 ounces ($99.50). Served medium-rare.
Cajun Ribeye Steak ($102.00). Served medium-rare.
Five Peppercorn Rubbed Prime Strip Steak at 20 ounces ($138.00). Served at well-done.
Signature Cut Prime New York Strip at 20 ounces ($134.00). Served rare.
Center Cut Filet Mignon at 12 ounces ($99.00). Served medium-rare.
If you are not too keen with the steak, another option would be Chilean Seabass ($77.00).
Souffle for Two ($37.00) for our dessert. We were too full to actually care about whether it's for two or not, and just shared the entire bowl within the 8 of us. Everyone had a couple of spoons of the fluffy and soft souffle. Similar to egg tarts, and this is even better than just egg tarts.
This meal is definitely our most expensive dinner ever, and none of us have seen 4-figures amount in a single receipt before. But disregard the amount, the quality of the food is definitely worth what we paid for, and if I ever have the chance again, Morton's is definitely topping the list, or at least in the first few.
On another note, the serving is pretty filling even for a single pax to finish it up, which actually leaves all of us either too full or with a few grams of meat untouched.

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/06/ban-tong-seafood-restaurant.html
Ban Tong Seafood has once moved out of Clementi, in search of a new location. But somehow, they are back, and I was informed of how good their food was in the past. They are located in a coffeehouse, beside the Clementi Police Divisonal Headquarters.
Assam Fish Head (Seasonal Price) is not in the menu, but is a hot favorite back in the past. It is even so now, and luckily we tried asking if they still have the assam fish head. Fish is definitely fresh, and the assam gravy is sour and spicy at the same time. If you are not the kind of head-over-heels for Curry Fish Head, Assam Fish Head should be your first option!
Sweet and Sour Pork ($8.00). I have seen lots of places serving small chunks pork, but Ban Tong Seafood is neither petty nor are they super generous with it. The serving per chunk is just right, with the glittering sauce covering every chunk of the crispy outer pork.
Prawn Paste Chicken ($8.00). Although it is categorized under the Chef's Recommendation, I would gladly suggest it to be. Juicy meat and fluid flow of the savoury prawn paste deserved another plate!
Kai Lan ($8.00) served to has thick stalks but is crunchy. Leaves are not overcooked, and is crunchy too. "Crunch crunch crunch" is the sound you will hear. No, it is not raw.
Mixed Omelette ($5.00) has big pieces of shrimp despite its cheap price! It has crisp edges but towards the inside you still can feel the softness of the egg omelette. Thumbs up for this!
Cereal Crayfish ($18.00) is one of their Chef's Recommendation and it indeed serve up to it. There is no need to de-shell and the tender meat of crayfish could get you fighting with your dining companions.
Serving time is quite fast, perhaps due to the raining weather where most would rather stay home and catch some tv programmes. But even if the waiting time could get me to wait for 30-45 minutes, I believe it is still worthwhile.
