Located along a secluded alley of Dickson Road in the district of Little India, nestled the least expected Roots Kitchen & Bar, an European Restaurant. With an unpretentious exterior leading you into an interior made of bricks walls and wooden furniture brings about a charming rustic ambiance.

 

 
One of the best thing at Roots Kitchen & Bar is their menu. Featuring sumptuous dishes starting with some brunch food to starters and side shares followed by mains and desserts all at pocket friendly NETT prices! This has definitely set them apart from the typical more costly European Restaurants.

 
Egg & Truffle Mousseline topped with Cavier ($4). Smooth egg mousseline served in cute egg shell on a primitive egg carton brings our memories back to the good olden days for a split moment. It has a mashed potatoes alike kind of sandy mouthfeel and lingering traces of truffle with a blend of earthy taste from the mushrooms.

 
Loaded Sweet Potatoes Fries ($15) with truckloads of feta cheese, jalapenos and minced meat! A slight twist made to the usual crispy sweet potatoes fries was the melty cheese and exploding surprises in its flavors. A little sweetness from the sweet potato with a hint of kick from the jalapenos.

 
Ocean Crab Pasta ($18). Fine thread like pasta tossed and coated with rich umami flavored lobster bisque was served with generous servings of fresh shredded crabmeat. The pasta was cooked right to perfection with each thread sealed with the flavor of the sea. Definitely a like for seafood lover!

 
Nagano Pork Rack (200g, $27) revealing a refreshing compote of pickle sweet braised cabbage, mustard seed and grape that brightens the flavors of the pork rack. The pork rack with a pinkish center is tenderly soft and easy to swallow. One of the better pork rack in town i would say!

 
London Broil ($22). Flank steak done medium with a slight chewiness to it. Accompanied by red wine jus, smooth potato puree and some root vegetables! Flavors of different food has complimented well all within this one dish.
It was definitely a hearty dinner with such lip smacking delicious dishes and such good food has definitely been made more accessible with the new Rochor Mrt Station!

Online baker cum blogger turns hobby into reality, opening its flagship store under a block of flats along Owen Road. With a clean minimalistic interior and a Instagram fulfilling corner, Shiberty Bakes is all ready to welcome their customers! A cozy corner for a chill out afternoon.

 
Menu filled with sweet delights including Shiberty Toasts (also know as Shibuya Toast), Gourmet Waffles, Dessert Pizzas, Homemade Cakes, Macaroons and Milkshakes!

 
Red Velvet Gourmet Waffles ($14) – Daunting maroon red waffles reveals their crispy yet dense texture. Further topped with berries, cookies bites and 2 scoops of smooth creamy ice cream, are making people crazily falling in love over it. It comes in 3 flavors, Buttermilk, Red Velvet and Charcoal.

 
Matcha Shiberty Toast ($16) – You’ll find some similarity in the plating style of Shiberty Toast and their Gourmet Waffle. Both with berries and cookies bites. Cube of toast made up of a crispy shell and a soft and light interior filled with lingering sweet honey butter. Accompanied by 2 scoops of ice cream, vanilla and matcha. Be surprise to find some cookie crumbs mixed into these ice cream for an extra crunch. 3 flavors to choose from too – Classic, Rocher and Matcha.

 
Macaroons ($2 per piece) – Attracted into trying the bright yellow Salted Egg and brown with golden flakes Ferrero Rocher macaroons. Melty with the right texture. A little crisp airy shell with chewy fillings in between that are not too sweet.
Constantly seeing the improvements made by Shiberty Bakes to their desserts, is definitely giving customers the assurance to their desserts’ quality.

You got to nail this popular cafe, Populus Coffee & Food Co, along 146 Neil Road! It gets real crowded on weekends and the waiting time easily gets up to 30mins as there’s limited seating capacity. Strongly advisable to make a reservation before dropping by! A very vintage and classique storefront with retro prints flooring, opening its door to a chic and bustling coffeehouse brimming with vibrancy. A gastronomical cafe dishing out contemporary brunch signatures and specialty coffee.

 
The Populus Scramble ($18). I really love their signature silky soft creamy scrambled egg with a hint of cheesiness against the crispy flaky toasted croissant. The best combination you would ever ask for and definitely one of the best scrambled egg i have tasted before! Streaks of bacon adding a torch of savoriness to this brunch item.

 
Heirloom Rendang Donburi (Limited Edition; $20). This will be a perfect marriage of japanese and malay cuisine. Homemade heirloom recipe rendang, peranankan archar, daikon, carrot & zuke pickles and seasoned japanese rice. A usually light japanese dish spiced up with appetizing archar and heavier tasting tender rendang. It's a refreshing pairing to the eaters.

 
Seafood Linguine ($25). Linguine braised in seafood bisque?! Can you imagine how flavorful it actually is? Ingenious replacement of usually white wine base to something more umami in flavor enhancing and bringing the whole taste of sea to a next level. With the abundance use of real succulent solid ingredients is what makes the dish worth every cents of penny you paid for.
All in all, it’s a place filled with arousing interest and alluring you to give it’s remaining delicacies a try.

Nostalgic Chinese Flavors Smile Apr 24, 2016

Yum Cha has opened its first door in Chinatown away from the hustling city life many years back and now i’m back there for their Mother’s Day Menu Special. Imagine a picturesque of servers busily pushing carts of fresh, piping hot, mouth watering, delicately made dim sum delicacies right to your table or a busy scene of taking orders from the customers. Yes, that’s what you see when you’re at Yum Cha. That aside, everyone know Mother’s Day is just round the corner, wrecking your brain to see where you can bring your mum to for a sumptuous meal? Here's your answer!

 
(Mother’s Day Special) Braised Pork with Preserved Vegetables Bun ($2/pc) – A good balance of fats and meat with savoriness from preserved vegetables wrapped with warm and soft steamed bun. All is good but for a thin film of coat at the exterior of the bun that was a little off the usual softness.

 
(Mother’s Day Special) Pan Fried Salted Fish Bun ($5/3pcs) – With bottom of the bun seared to golden brown and flavorful filling made from salted fish paste and minced meat. Overall taste is light but with a distinct salted fish note. Definitely suit the palette of a salted fish lover.

 

 
(Mother’s Day Special) Almond Tarts ($3.20/3pcs) – Filled the core with sweet almond custard against the soft, flaky crusty tart. The custard is brimming with sweet almond flavor. It can be served chilled or warm.
Beside having to taste the special menu for Mother’s Day, we get to savor some of Yum Cha ala carte and dim sum dishes too!

 
Signature Salted Egg Prawns – This was a total hit for the night! Unlike the typical golden salted egg yolk prawn, Yum Cha has taken another innovative approach of incorporating the aroma and flavor of the salted egg yolk to the deep fried prawns.Loving how the freshness and sweetness of prawns is preserved yet with traces of salted egg scents and flavors.

 
Black Pepper Beef with Lotus – Tender beef slices that were extremely soft and well soaked up in the black pepper sauce makes it a good dish to go with rice! It will be much better if the lotus chips are a little more crispier!

 
Fried Carrot Cake – The perfect texture of crispy on the exterior, moist and soft on the interior.

 
Crispy Fried Beancurd – Another highlight of the night! Made up of 7 different flavor blend of ingredients as the dry mix gave the fried beancurd a sweet, salty and spicy flavor to it. A very interesting taste to the taste buds. A bite into the fried beancurd, sinks your teeth into a cube of piping hot, soft and smooth melts in your mouth seafood tofu! Indeed a delightful tofu creation.

 
Fried Vermicelli Seafood – Vermicelli filled with strong wok hei aroma and generous serving of succulent seafood consisting of scallops, prawns and fish slices. Perfect ending dish to a series of dim sums!Here the dim sum menu for dinner at a glimpse! Look forward to their ala carte dishes too, it will not disappoint you either. To sum up all, most of the dishes at Yum Cha are lighter tasting, and thus there will always be room for more!

I have been wanting to check out Kuvo, so the chance came by timely with Restaurant Week! Conveniently located at the second level of Orchard Shopping Centre, with Somerset as the nearest MRT station.

 
If you have not known by now, Kuvo is an original lifestyle and gastronomic concept by TCC. Kuvo is all dressed in a charming with hues of elegance for their interior and ambiance, an ambiance that makes it great for a date night with an overview of the bustling streets of Orchard Road.Dedicated dinner menu for the Restaurant Week.

 
Entree King Prawn on Crab Timbale – Lightly grilled crunchy king prawn on a bed of refreshing umami and sweet tasting with a hint of sour crab timbale. It’s good in a way you could taste and feel the texture of the fresh shredded crab right on your palette. A true delight entree of quality ingredients.

 
Main Course Char Grilled Angus Ribeye – Loved how the steak is done medium and well seared, with the right texture, tender and juicy but not at all bloody. The accompanying jus is just perfect and not too overpowering the ribeye. Did i forget to mention, the ribeye steak came in 2 slabs! Which i thought was pretty generous of themsmile

 
Main Course Grilled Barramundi – an interesting fusion of asian flavor to this dish. Angel hair tossed perfectly in curry pesto sauce, as though the pasta strands are curry pesto flavored in nature. Fresh and soft barramundi with it’s skin crisp was lighter in taste, which blended in well with the heavier tasting pasta.

 
Dessert Warm Summer Berries Almond Cake – prettily plated dessert but was a little too heavy for me to savor and appreciate despite the cake being moist and not too sweet. It was really good, but it’s just too floury for me to ingest after the 2 good courses! I would greatly prefer a much lighter dessert such as a panna cotta or creme brulee though.😀
All in all, it was a good dining experience with Kuvo. The service and food served was superb!
