Criollo Cocoa Cafe located at Orchard Gateway, at quite corner, overlooking Orchard Road.
It is a quiet and ideal place to sip in coffee in town. If you need a silence place to cool dow or write something, it would be a perfect cafe. It is also a good cafe for studying while enjoying their specials student offer. Menu is shown as per below

 
Adorned by glass window and facing down to Orchard Road, you can people - watch, feel the fresh ambience and relax your mind.

Look at the Latte !! smile It's so cute. Enjoyed the latte and view much.
Thank You Criollo Cocoa Cafe staff for drawing its latte.

 
You can also purchase the Tea Sachet / box from them

 
As a cake lover, i was attracted by the adorable Rainbow Cake.

 
Piperade

Served as a strong fusion of middle eastern food, its dishes is also known as from Europe. Bread is crusty and its Baked egg dish was nice served as a entree for a small course with bacon and number of healthy vegetable such as onions, green peppers, and stewed tomatoes.

 
Portobello Mushroom Burger.

The burger was average and nothing much special except its tasty cheese and juicy portobello.  Light Brioche bun was nice to use for its burger that served with Portobello
Mushroom, grilled onion and capsicum, lettuce, and tomato. The fries was too salty with too much salt

 
Seafood Laksa Pasta

Favorite dish of the day! When i rolled the spaghetti with the fork, I could sense the familiar aroma of its heavens laksa. Gravy was thick and rich to form its spaghetti and seafood base with laksa flavor. Prawn is big and fresh in a special laksa sauce

 
Waffle with Fresh Fruits

End of the meal with favorite dessert, Waffle. Waffle was light with non-heavy butter sense. Delightful Waffle with the maple syrup and ice cream. Enjoyed the fruits much on top of its waffle

Frozen Korea Ice Dessert Cafe Smile Sep 09, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Café | Desserts and Cakes

Let it Go ! Let it go – its Frozen song appears on the immediate result when you googled “Frozen “. Well, we are not going to talk about Princess Elsa or Snow Queen but it rather what it looks cool and nice with Korean Ice desserts.

Frozen Café is a specialized in Korean Bingsu and Pastries.
Notice that the logo design of its café name and it’s ambience hue of blue and white are something familiar we found on what was featured in Frozen Movie. In other words,

Its café is inspired by Walt Disney Animation Movie of Frozen.

 
I was a little bit of cold when entered its cafe, followed
by the ambience, quite cold and quite perhaps that is what the café called as “Frozen”.

 
Here is the menu. What they have ?

* OLAF ( Fruit Castle )

It represents the entire whole fruits that served with ice cream at the top and cube ice at the below of its fruit castle, probably it is used to keep the entire OLAF and fruits cooler.

* ELSA

A rough snow flake that with different choice of flavours

* Pastry , Bread, and YoYo ( Yogurt ice cream )

 

 
Are you melted with the Dessert and Pastry ? !

 

 
Elsa - Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Flake

Look at the Ice Cream, Is it a sad or happy expression ? Well, i couldn't define it because its Frozen and too cute ! In a price of $17.90, isn't it expensive? It came with a bowl of bingsu, topped with Blueberry cheesecake and milk ice cream. The ear on its ice cream is Coco Crunch.

The shaved ice is rough but blueberry was flavoring. The proper way to eat it this is by crashing all the topping together and shown in their youtube displayed near the cashier.

 
Honey Melon Olaf Fruit Castle

The Fruit Castle came in look like a Half Snowman till its belly. The shaved ice within the honey melon is harsh and its texture was not easy to melt. So, we have to use spoon to crush it to have a better taste on its Olaf instead of eating the lump of harsh ice.

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)

On top of it, it is also famed for the longest sushi bar in town, offered an innovative variety of over 100 dishes prepared with the finest ingredients imported from Japan. Ingredients and seafood are personally bought by their staff in Japan from the Tsukji market and air-flown to Singapore daily

Pitan Tofu

It is a simple yet satisfying soft tofu. Lovely hick sauce made form yolk of the century egg topped with Crab Stick and Spring Onion is a good choice for appetizer.

 
Shrimp Tempura

A deep fried non – greasy Shrimp tempura is just nice for the choice of fried appetizer. Prawn is fresh and not much flour was tasted

 
Shime Saba

A nice hop on of grilled Saba in the mouth which known as Vinegar Mackerel, a classic dish from Japan and one of the popular fish in Japan. It is marinated with salt and rice vinegar but no worries it neither taste salty or sour but overall is mouth-watering

 
Sukiyaki

The set of sukiyaki comes with fruits of watermelon, light dish, raw egg, slices of beef and light fresh vegetables such as mélange of greens, tofu, shitake, carrots, and glass noodle
cooked in a pre-heated pot with a flavourful broth. The soup was a bit of salty but it was
superb and like the smell and taste of the broth. Some people prefer to dip their meats with the raw egg, but some prefer to let the egg cooked in the soup.

 
Seafood Fried Rice

It is a small portion of fried rice, smells good and served with egg, prawn, and squid. To some it is a replaceable of 1 bowl rice.

 
Wakadori Set

The deep fried chicken is marvelous. Love the juicy chicken meat and crispy skin. The set comes with fruits, soup and light Japanese dish. The Shredded cabbage with a light drizzle plum sauce was nice and sweet praises in my mouth.

 
Look at the mouth watering juicy chicken. It was damn nice fully chicken meat

 
Sushi set with Wasabi

The exclusive sushi set with complete type of salmon was just nice for salmon craving sushi. Shredded cabbage of plum sauce and watermelon came with most of the set. Salmon were fresh as well as the tasty sushi. However, Be aware that it contains wasabi for each sushi. If you don’t want the wasabi, kindly request them not put wasabi for each sushi

 
Chasoba Sushi Set Meal

Noodles are hard and chewy. Texture and doneness of noodles – cold was just perfect and like the sushi a lot.

Old Street Bak Kut Teh Smile Mar 19, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese Soup | Bak Kut Teh

Bak Kut Teh is known as " meat bone tea ", a familiar dish that originated from China
Fujian province. It is cooked with a meat pork ribs in a robust bowl of soup brewed with
various medicinal herbs and spices.
The founder of Old Street Bak Kut Teh, Jason Lim created the perfect formula for its bak kut
teh that is non oily and healthier. Besides, the traditional menu they also offered the innovativetwists of dry version as well as their freshly hand made dough fritters, bean curd, and herbal jelly.

 
Adopted from my blog : http://cennds.blogspot.com

Reaching the place at the good timing with lesser crowd and no queue yet.
We were assisted by their staff to the seat and start ordering dishes thru Ipad.
Different type of sauces are displayed in the middle of aisle bar.
All cutleries are kept in your table drawer .

What to eat :

To satisfy palate of Bak Kut Teh, dough fritter should not be missed out, hence Bak Kut Teh and dough fritter are must to order. Conversely with my friend, i would prefer Noodle - Mee Sua instead of rice.

While went through the menu, we saw the SET menu consists of rice, pork ribs soup, dough fritters, and bean curd for $11 which is cheaper and more worth it instead of ordering per dishes. Without hesitate, we chose SET menu that mainly consists of food we were going to have.

Pork Ribs Soup

Simple yet mouth watering soup of the spices ingredients.
The soup is free flow with no extra cost which assisted by their staff adding to your bowl.

 
Dough Fritters

You tiao is the must to have while eating Bak Kut Teh. The best to eat the Freshly hand made dough fritters is by dipping it into the soup. The skin is crispy and not much oil was founded.

 
Mee Sua - Noodle

Simple yet delicious Noodle, Like the sweet of the mee sua's soup.

 
Dry Bak Kut Teh

This would be the best dishes besides the You Tiao and also my virgin to Dry Bak Kut Teh.
It taste delicious with the spices herbal ingredients and stirred well with fried ginger, lady finger especially the innovative of their specialty dark sauce but it was really spicy .

 
Kai Lan - Vegetable

Besides, the Bak Kut Teh, their Kai Lan is also appetizer with right amount of soya sauce
and cooked in a way that satisfy your veggie crave.

 
Bean Curd

Set meal of Bak Kut teh included the  hand made bean curd was just mediocre.
Soft enough but it was not smooth enough yet of its curd.

 
 
Spending per head: Approximately $12
