CAFE REVIEW : Bucktile St Cafe OK Nov 22, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes | Ice Cream and Gelato

While google – ing a cafe that located nearby my place, i found a cafe situated not far away from my place. Tucked along the Faber hills Apartment - Faber Drive, though seems near from my place but I had a long way of walk to find out this hidden café.

 
The café name “Bucktile” is an anagram derived from Bucket List. Why said so ?
They have a Bucket of List for you to write on and paste it onto the Bucket List, as the owner hope that Bucktile St cafe can be one the places to visit. Btw, I have sticked my own smile

 
More details : http://cennds.blogspot.sg/2015/11/cafe-review-bucktile-st-cafe.html

If you are lucky enough and prefer to sit on sofa, you can aim the sofa seat at the corner. the sofa was quite cosy enough. It give you a feeling that you are lying down / sitting down at your own comfort sofa at home

 
PLEASE DO NOT BRING ME HOME ! Fine, we won't bring the table number home smile The calendar is adjustable so you can play around with the dice.

 
Earl Grey Lavender Cake.

Approaching the staff at the counter to recommend on what cake we should try. I was told to try " Early Grey Lavender " which is nicer as per her suggestion. I wasn't fancy enough with the Cake. The earl grey fragrance wasn't that strong and texture of the cake was not as smooth as per my expectation. Slightly dissapointed with the cake. It is more to instagram purpose.

 


Waffle drizzled with Maple Syrup


Original Waffle at the price of $4.40 is reasonable for the simple and plain waffle.

 
Chicken and Mushroom Pie with Fries

I would say the Pie is better than the cake. Crispy and puffy fries wtih a generous filling . The filling mushroom was nice with the fragrance sauce. I upgraded the fries to truffle fries

New Revamp Menu Harry's bar OK May 31, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bars/Lounges

From time to time, we heard about Harry's. It has grown become a well established bar and dining place for beers, extensive selection of wines and stylish cocktails.

Recently Harry's has opened a New Outlet at Clarke Quay on 1st May 2015 and more awesome with the launch of new revamp Food Menu !.

Proudly to announce that now Harry's not only a place for drinking but also offering 50 over International selection of Food, prepared by their culinary teams.

Blog Review : http://cennds.blogspot.com/2015/05/food-review-new-revamp-menu-harrys-bar.html

Food Menu is divided into different section from finger foods to desserts.

Let's Start with Beer And Small Plates

Harry's Premium Lager ( HPL )

Since Harry's is known as a well established bar, we shouldn't left out with their Signature Beer of Draught. Cheers with HPL ! ($13) It is not as gassy as other beers and lesser bitter

 
Fish Cracklings

Crunchy Crunchy !! Crackling of eel fish at the price of $13 per serving, tossed with their own spices mix and served with aioli, savory garlic mayonnaise.
The best part is no fishy or unfavorable smell founded.

 
Crab and Potato Cakes

It is not a cakes of dessert but it is a blue swimmer crab and potato cakes with a light crunch, served with a delightful home blended tomato dip. Texture is soft enough and could be your choice of an easy and convenient fingers food at $19 for 6 pcs

 
Harry's Signature Wings

Harry's Small Plates Signature of crispy wings, dressed in a secret spice and served with a sauce that tasted like a sambal belacan but it was not exactly a sambal belacan.
In fact it is Harry' unique homemade chili jam which tends o be more spicy.
All time favorites at the price of $13 for 6 pcs, $19 for 10 pcs

 
Platters for Sharing

Japaleno Steak Sliders

A little sharing with friends and families ($13).
A Grilled steak that cut into a small slice of beef for a juicy slider burger with a charred bell peppers and jalaperio cheese sauce which you give you the heat of the burger instead of spicy

 
Big Plates and Signature Cocktail

Like the structured Menu and the way they serve the Menu Tasting.
At different type of food section, different drink is served to suit for the every taste.

Dirty Harry

Enjoy a refreshing glass of Signature Cocktails of vodka built with brown sugar and lychee liqueur for a flavored fruits and desire touch of lime wedges ($16). 
One of my favorite drinks at the night.

 
Chicken Masala

If you visit an Indian food, masala would be always founded in their menu.
It is a combination of spice blended in Indian Term.
Nonetheless, it is not a curry but a spiced gravy for the grilled smokey chicken that cook together with their own marinated sauce. ($23)
The toasted Charcoal bread is great to soak at the flavourful and unique pot of Chicken Masala.

 
Crabmeat Spaghettini

Tossed Spaghettini with fresh handpicked crab meat in tomato sauce, pine nuts and fresh chili cuts. Tough it is warned with a chili sign, but the spiciness is really not much. The spaghettini was not savory enough and too watery. ( $23 )

 
Come to End of Dessert

Toffee Apple Crisp Tart

Perfect treats for sweet craving with glass of Fruity Moscato ($13.50). A lovely crush pastry topped with thin sliced apple, spread with a mouth watering salted caramel and vanilla ice cream for extra satisfaction ($14)

 
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Harry's Signature Wings,Crab and potato cakes

Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Teochew | Dim Sum | Seafood

Searching through google to look for Dim Sum places and we found there was a Dim Sum buffet at Swatou Seafood Restaurant . The Dim Sum is only available during High Tea Time. 
The place is located behind the HDB and we almost lost out track.

Review on my blog : http://cennds.blogspot.com

There are variety of dishes to eat and to pick but most of the food contains of PRAWN. It is advantage for prawn/shrimp lover but it will be a negative side for those have an allergic on prawn. Although i don't have allergic on it but since most of the food have prawn, we ate till quite afraid of their dishes especially if we saw a prawn.

However, the food quality is not bad and flavoursome

Prawn Dumpling

Prawn is fresh and wrapped with a soft skin dumpling

 

Bai Khu

Although it is a bit oily but it was delighted and well cooked with a great cooking sauce for pork.

 
Mushroom + Prawn Siew Mai

Great to have the mushroom on its home-made siew mai which i think that it is quite special because of the Siew Mai we eat at Dim Sum places, there is no mushroom added in the Siew Mai

 

Fried Bean Curd Skin Roll with Shrimp

Small pieces of shrimp wrapped in a crispy bean curd. Thanks that it was not oily and well supported texture

 

Egg Tart


Lovely the crispy tart and well soft textured.

 
Crispy Durian & Shrimp Roll

Waow ..It was my first time having dimsum contains of durian. Are you durian lover ? If yes, you should try it. Seldom there is a DimSum place, offer DimSum contains of Durian

 
Xiao Long Bao

What a awesome dish that couldn't be missed out during Dim Sum. Apparently, it was appetizing and well served

 
Mango Pudding and Tofu Pudding

A well spended dessert of DimSum because i have been a long time i never touch on tofu pudding.  The tofu was just nice and very soft while mango pudding is a bit plain

 

 

 
 
Spending per head: Approximately $20

Strictly Pancakes Review OK Dec 04, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes

Blog : http://cennds.blogspot.com

Googling through to find out about Strictly Pancakes since i am craving for pancakes. Reached at the places with my friends and it was quite crowded. Waited at queue line for around 15 minutes. So, to get rid of our boredness we took a look in their menu first. Their menu is really just strictly to Pancakes, corresponding to their name .. " Strictly Pancakes ". 

The environment is not as cozy as other cafes . It is a bit squeezy and noisy perhaps due to their crowd

Besides a normal pancakes. They have seafood pancakes such as prawn and crab pancakes.
When you order normal pancakes & would like to taste the chocolate flavour , you need to top up for $1

Chocloate Pancakes

It is the simplest and cheapest plain normal pancakes. Suggested to to eat together with the syrup , otherwise the taste is really plain and dry

 
Strawberry Pancakes

Strawberry pancakes with the topping of vanilla ice-cream at the side. It is definitely taste better than the chocolate pancakes. At least, it contains a bit sweet and not bitter

 
 
Spending per head: Approximately $15

While hanging out on Orchard Central and found a restaurant with the name of B.W.B from my friend?? I kept thinking what is B.W.B ? What food they serve ? .
My curiousty brought me to the rooftop garden of Orchard Central to find out this restaurant. It is an American-style restaurant , stands from Burger VS wings + bar.

More review on blog : http://cennds.blogspot.com

The menu :

 
Pork Burger

It is really a very big portion of burger. Imagine the layer per layer of the pork meat placed between the burger bread. How big it is. Picture and portion cant be judged on how nice the food it is until you really taste on it. The bread of the burger was soft but there was an unpleasant strong smell reside on the pork itself which made me don't really like it
