Bread Yard Smile Nov 02, 2015

Situated in an environment with quite a number of offices around, you really can expect quite a crowd during lunchtime on weekdays. Two visits there and both days Breadyard was full house.
Prices between $7-$10

Prices between $7-$10

 
Selling point of this place, good yummy bread made in-house and also affordable prices on their menu. Tried the following food items on 2 accounts:
(1) Pumpkin Soup $3

 
- Pumpkin soup is thick and creamy, tastes semi sweet and light. It comes with soft pumpkin chunks inside and croutons scattered on top. A great start before the mains.
(2) Mushroom Soup $3

 
- This creamy-rich soup is full of mushroom bits. Flavour tastes just right for me, not salty and made me feel comforting when consumed warm on a rainy day.
(3) House Salad $3

 
- A combination of mixed greens, cherry tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts. Drizzled with sesame dressing which doesn't seem to have existed. It's was bland, dry and definitely need dressing pump up! Colours are pretty though smile
(4) Bettino Platter $10

 
- A hearty all day breakfast platter with back bacon, honey baked ham, salad, choice of eggs on Breadyard's Hokkaido bread.
Highlight here is the Hokkaido bread used. Made inhouse with natural leaven and flour liquid roux. First bite and I'm in love with its texture, so soft like a pillow! Bacon was pan-fried to give that slight crisp on the edges whereas ham was served as it is. I chose scrambled egg for my set but it was slightly overdone thus abit hard.
(5) Smoked Chicken Sandwich $8 with added Side Salad for $2

 
- Country bread used was on the dry side. Smoked chicken breast was rather tough and hard on my teeth. The french beans paired inside the sandwich wasn't a good idea too. Garlic butter and honey mustard dressing could be more, to perk up more flavour in the sandwich.
(6) Ham & Cheese Sandwich $7

 
- Honey baked ham, red apple slices, cheddar cheese, bechamel and honey mustard dressing on a slice of Hokkaido bread. A simple, light combi which you could easily make at home. I would suggest granny smiths instead of red apples slices used as the natural sourness can excite our tastebuds more. Luckily their soft and fluffy Hokkaido bread made in-house saved my day! Happy!
(7) Coffee $4

 
- Breadyard uses Sumatra blend from Brazil. Coffee was slight kicky and has a very mild fruity orange aftertaste.

Verdict: Dining experience at Breadyard was pleasant. Staff are attentive and friendly. Although not every food item was impressive but at least their price is competitive. A great lunch hangout place at Fusionpolis. If you're busy and in a rush, Breadyard does provides takeaways and deliveries to nearby offices too.

Two Bakers Smile Oct 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | French | Café | Desserts and Cakes | Burgers and Sandwiches | Brunch

Singapore

 

 
A pretty cosy place to chill at during weekdays as it wasn't really crowded. Location is quite accessible, its less than 10mins walk from Lavender Mrt or Farrer Park Mrt. Co-owned by two talented chefs from Le Cordon Bleu Paris, who love to bake and explore new recipes, thus the name "Two Bakers" came about.

 
(1) Purple Gold Tart $7.80
- What's in it? Lavender infused chocolate ganache, caramel ganache, roasted almond bits and caramel tuile. The wedd of chocolate + caramel results in this very sweet tasting tart, best suits chocolate lovers (like me). Almond bits didn't play much part because it was too little to provide with the additional crunch or nut fragrance. Tart shell was firm but teeth still manageable.

 
(2) Yuzu Summer Cake $9.80
- The Yuzu lemon yogurt mousse was smooth & creamy but tasted too zesty, sourish which i prefer to be less. The matcha sponge within is redundant as matcha taste was too weak and Yuzu taste was too overwhelming.
(3) Halloween themed baked goods:

 

 
(A) Greedy Val Cake $7.0
- The chocolate cake is very soft and moist. The cake itself wasn't too sweet, sweetness only comes from the vanilla buttercream. Love the melt-in-your-mouth Rasberry coated meringue.

 
(B) Wicked John Cake $7.0
- The content of the Wicked John cake is exactly the same with the Greedy Val, except that it is drizzled with Rasberry glaze instead of chocolate.

 

 
(4) Halloween themed Macarons $3.50 per pc/ $12 for 4.
-Flavours are Yuzu, Rose, Matcha and Lavender Chocolate. I can honestly tell you I bought them because they looked pretty in Halloween costumes, it is the appearance that attracted me first. Taste wise, the flavours are quite distinctive and shells are crisp.

 

 
Verdict: Quite love this place because it is quiet in the afternoon and I could have proper chat with my friends without disturbance. Staff are very courteous and approachable. Taste of baked goods are definitely above average but my personal choice are their cakes. I think their cakes flare better compared to rest. Two bakers also serve coffee, snacks and other mains. I will be back smile

Dunman Duck Rice OK Oct 28, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre

[Dunman Duckrice]
德明鸭饭
-Stall 10, Basement level-

 
Dunman Food Ctr
271 Onan Road
Singapore 424768
(1) Duck Porridge/ Congee $3

 

 
- This bowl of pipin' hot duck porridge is best suitable for a cold rainy day as it warms my tummy! Gravy was abit too salty for me but the stall owner is indeed generous in the portion of duck meat given.
(2) Duck Rice $3

 

 
- I was given the duck breast meat. But still, meat is tender, well marinated and not dry. Rice is fragrant and texture is soft yet still remains some firmness, not mushy.
(3) Kway chap $3.50 + Pork Belly & Duck Liver $3.50

 
- $3 for the kway chap ingredients and $0.50 for the "kway". For this price, the portion served was consider big. Drizzled with the braised gravy, the ingredients were full of flavour from the chinese spices. Bean curd skin "tau pok" soaked up a lot of the gravy that's why tasted abit salty when bite. But the pork skin and intestines were very chewy/Q which I like smile
The "kway" was plain as usual and additional flavour comes from the gravy broth it is soaked in.

 
Pork belly was very tender and just like the kway chap ingredients, meat was well marinated with the spices. Pork belly meat and fats ratio was quite balanced too. On the other hand, I don't really fancy the duck liver as the duck stench was pretty strong which I don't like.
Verdict: Dining experience here was pleasant. Stall owners were friendly and generous in the food portions served. Prices are very reasonable too.
The only negative issue here is, the food center is way too warm and you will definitely be soaked in sweat after eating.

The Holqa Cafe OK Oct 27, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

[Holqa Cafe]

 
Situated at 37 East Coast Road, together with a lot other f & b competitors along the same stretch, lies a tiny weenie cafe, The Holqa. "Holqa" actually means "link" in Maltese language. The cafe is quite small and space rather limited but could still cater up to 20 guests.

 
My partner and I ordered coffee, eggs ben and redeemed a set of wings we won on Instagram contest.

 
(1) Flat white coffee $5
- Coffee tastes smooth down my throat, presenting me with chocolatey nutty aftertaste. I didn't asked about their beans supplies though.

 

 
(2) Bearnaise Eggs Benedict with Braised Asian Pulled Pork $15.90
- Two poached eggs were served on a toasted brioche, together with braised asian pull pork, sandwiched in between and greens on the side. Poached Eggs were nicely done, love it when the yolks flows. The bearnaise sauce was supposed to be spicy but I can't taste any spiciness. Braised asian pulled pork was tender but flavour not strong enough thus tasted a little bland. It will definitely taste better if meat were marinated longer. I also preferred my toast to be more buttery.

 

 
(3) SnS Ji $9.90
- Six deep fried mid wings coated with in-house special sweet and spicy sauce. The sauce was like a combi of malt candy (麦芽糖) mixed in with thai sweet chilli sauce which sticks on your teeth like glue. The overall taste was much sweeter rather than spicy. The peanut bits scattered on top of the wings gave them the extra crunch and also leaves a nice peanut fragrance aftertaste in our mouth.
Verdict: Overall experience at Holqa was a pleasant one. The young lads on duty were very polite and friendly too. Although food tastes average but it's still a nice place to chill at. I didn't try out any desserts this time round so I might pop by again the next time.

Envy Coffee Cry Oct 26, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : English | Café

[Envy Coffee]
1 Fusionpolis Link #01-04
Nexus @ One North
Mon-Fri 7.30am-6pm
Cafe was quite hidden away in a corner at Nexus, quite unnoticeably. Its around 5-8mins walk from One North mrt station. The whole unit was quite spacious, with an estimate of 25 seats available. I went with my younger brother during lunchtime and the cafe is almost full.

 

 

 
We started off with ordering of our coffee. Followed by a Pesto Chicken sandwich, which we upgraded to set meal. I also redeemed a Sambal Prawn Paste chicken burger which I won in an Instagram contest and lastly, a slice of red velvet cake. The staff taking orders was rather slow and doesn't seems to know their menu well, probably a newly joined. By the way, all prices here are nett, no gst/service charge.

 
(1) Flat White $5
- Envy uses beans from Liberty Coffee. My flat white tastes smooth, chocolatey nutty and it's just the way I like it to be.

 

 
(2) Soup of the day $5.40
- Mushroom was Tuesday's soup of day choice. Warm, thick and creamy soup with loads of mushroom bits, it is a great starter to warm up my tummy.

 
(3) Pesto Chicken Sandwich $8.90
- Sandwiched between a ciabatta bread, there are greens, boiled chicken slice and pesto spread. Ciabatta was abit tough and chewy. Chicken is tender but portion was thin and pathetic (as you can see from my picture). Pesto spread did perk up the overall taste of the sandwich but really, i think amount of filling can be more generous for $8.90. Chips that came as side are not crispy too (lao-hong!!).

 

 
(4) Sambal Prawn Paste Chicken Burger $13.90
- Charcoal bun was used for this burger. Soft and fluffy describes the texture. Chicken thigh was tender but prawn paste taste wasn't really distinctive, can be heavier. And again, same as the previous sandwich, this stripe of meat was small enough to only occupy half the burger surface.
I did feedback to 1 of the owners and asked if he would consider increasing the portion of the meat as portion looks bad for a $13.90 but he brushed me off with answer like this "oh it's small? Oh ok...". And in order for myself to take a really nice photo of the burger for my Instagram, I even had to push the meat to the brim to get a great angle/view of it. Disappointed.
However, I noticed that Envy coffee don't have a proper kitchen doing the cooking. The hot food all comes out from microwave and toaster. That may also explains why the waffle fries they serve came out soft rather than crispy.

 

 
(5) Red Velvet Cake $6.80
- All the cakes at Envy are supplied from Bakery chef, none made in house. This red velvet cake texture was slight dry. The center cream cheese part was hard, texture like white chocolate block which you have just taken out from your fridge. Even the cream on top is harden. I can't be bothered to ask why after the unpleasant experiences with the 2 previous buns.

Verdict: Dining experience at Envy's was rather a disappointing one. Nice ambience but lacking in food quality. For the amount of food portions vs the price, I might not come visiting again. Thank god their coffee still works for me.
