chilling out OK Sep 28, 2011

A place for a budget meal and to chill out. Student meal cost only $6 for a main dish, a soup and a drink. Well good for the pocket is one thing, good for the tongue is another. This is really disappointing. A mistake in the salt measurement spoilt the taste. The tangerine fish fillet I ordered tasted more like sweet and sour fish and the garlic rice is too dry. Texture of fish is just nice though. Their soup too.

Service is considered efficient for a “two-man show”. Though they didn’t bring the menu to us, food was served promptly after ordering. Waitresses were also friendly and polite.

Overall, it’s a good experience. Value for money, with a cosy environment but a little inconvenient.

desserts, my love! Smile Sep 27, 2011

Categories : Bakery

It’s a piece of art. Lovely desserts placed together. It’s amazing! Warm chocolate cake, ice-cream, waffles, macaroon and a slice of cheesecake. Wow! It’s simply delicious (sinful too. oppss...). The warm chocolate cake is addictive. Very rich. It’s a must try! Their mango passion sorbet too! A little sour and a good mix of flavours from the fruits added. The rum and raisin ice-cream is a little disappointing though. Their waffles taste special. I guessed they fried it? It’s a good try. As for their cheesecake, it’s not the best option around but still worth a try. Tried the soufflé too. Fuffly and soft with espresso vanilla sauce to enhance the taste. Delicious! Their desserts are really good!

Had the creamy mushroom linguini too. It didn’t disappoint me! The cream sauce enhanced the taste of mushroom. Rich and creamy yet not too heavy in taste. Simple in appearance yet giving a high level of satisfaction. Try it for yourself!

Great service to round up the whole meal! Highly recommended!

It's my first time at Westgate and this cafe shined amongst the posh setting of the mall. Flipping through the menu, you will see burgers, pasta and desserts at a reasonable price but for a start, i decided to try the lunch special @$9.90++. 

This includes a main, a side and greens. To put it plainly, you can get a portion of carbs, a portion of meat and a portion of vegetable of your chioce. The main was nothing special and would have probably tasted better should it have been warmer. The meat is well-marinated but the portion was a little too small with the skin forming most of the volume. 

However, i must compliment them for the great service. I like how they bow and wear a smile. That is certainly what is lacking in many food chains nowadays. 

To sum it up, the set was far from worth it. If i were to visit again, i will try the normal menu rather than the special menu.

Right in the middle of the Central business district and overwhelmed by the business environment I was in, I hunted for a quiet corner to chill and relax. Having known that twelve cupcakes had a branch at golden shoe complex, I went to try my luck.

Being pretty much hidden (turn in from Subway), it took me quite a long time to find. Perhaps, they could put more obvious markings part from the small signboard that they placed. That would certainly create much convenience for customers who are trying to find their way there.

Despite the long search, I must say that they did not disappoint me. The little cupcakes placed in the display cabinet is certainly tempting and I would really love to try them all! But well… how much could I possibly eat? In the end, I chose two different flavors, namely red velvet cupcake and the chocolate chocolate cupcake. My all-time favorite, the red velvet one is really good. It is a cupcake that is made from topping the Classic Red Velvet cupcake with vanilla cream cheese. It is a perfect match! The taste of the soft cake is complemented and enhanced by the light yet flavorful cream cheese topping; it just keeps you going back for more.

 
The chocolate chocolate one is good too. It is really rich and chocolaty. The moist cake is again topped with a cream cheese but this around, a chocolate flavored one is added to the cupcake. As the taste of the vanilla cream cheese remains in my mouth, the chocolate cream cheese is comparably disadvantaged. The double chocolate combination is too heavy for me. I also prefer dark chocolate among the many types of chocolate. Thus, the ideal combination of double chocolate for me is chocolate cupcake topped with 70% dark chocolate. A good mix of sweet and bitterness, this is what I deem heavenly.

 
With good food comes great ambience? The decorations here are rather modern and the place is really clean, however, there are too few seats and the area is very cram.

As for the service, no complains. The price is reasonable too @ $3/cupcake.

Overall, it is a good place to chill and have high tea alone, in pairs or triplets.

jap cuisine Smile Apr 27, 2012

A Japanese style buffet that offers free flow of sakae and is available only on Saturday. It offers a wide range of dessert, sashimi and other snacks. A cost of $60 + is pretty reasonable. the good service was a bonus. Recommended for a wholehearted meal and for fans of jap cuisine.
