And so the famous dazzing cafe from taiwan has lifted its shutters here in singapore. Located at the first level of Capitol, you won't fail to miss it due to its snaking queue during the weekend. Thankfully, we came during the first few days and managed to get a look into its food and menuthe mains

Mentaiko Spaghetti with cream sauce 

 
A lovely use of the mentaiko. would have given it all 5 hands but there's still something missing which i can't tell myself. Great dish to share because it can be quite overwhelming.

next up comes the popular toasts ....

The Classic honey toast (3hands)

 
average at best. but the use of haagen dazs ice cream made the whole toast taste more premium. nothing much to rave good yet mehh.

The strawberry honey toast (3hands)

 
to me, it was the classic with an added strawberry topping. If you're a fan of strawberry, this toast should be your choice of order, otherwise, it taste exactly the same as the original.

Valrhona Chocolate Waffles (2Hands)

 
supposed to be a special waffle with mochi. You can choose various variants of flavours and as usual we chose the safest bet - the chocolate. What can I say - it is just not my cuppa tea. Texture was weird, tasted unique but not attractive. It may be me, but i stand my ground.

or else ,

 
you can just chill here with an order of their special mocktail.

house @ dempsey OK Apr 26, 2015

Categories : Fusion

Amidst the forage of greenery up at demspey hill, one might fail to notice this long colonial building all the way at the back. The curious however might chance upon this restaurant called House. Its interior stretches through the ground floor of the building, a bar and an al fresco setting give this cafe bar a feel unlike the usual eateries in Singapore today.

 
with its revamped brunch menu, read on to find what's new below. had a couple of drinks before the meal, first the alcoholic one followed by a mix juice which cleanses the body.

Macadamia-Crusted Pumpkin Salad 

 
a healthy yet flavourful dish to me. i like how the roasted nuts gives the mushy pumpkin a crunch texture, complimenting the dish perfectly. The light tangy dressing gave the salad a mustard finish.

Turkish Salad 

 
half of its ingredients seem alien to me, and it is almost house is giving us a vegetarian treat that afternoon. Tabbouleh, falafel, hummus and tzatziki, any one knows what ingredients are these? HAHA!

The Elegant Black Pepper Prawn Linguine 

 
this was the favourite dish of the afternoon. Linguine pasta tossed in black pepper sauced, sided with grilled prawns and a serving of carviar. It was a treat to the taste buds and a dish i fondly remember till today.

Lean, Green Pasta 

 
nowehere near my favourite of the day, but for vegetarians, it may be a happy belly dish for them. Gluten free fusilli tossed with pesto, asparagus, french beans and broccoli. Everything green is on this plate.

after the main course comes the cakes and desserts ...

 

 
From the pomegranate red velvet cake, the bitter chocolate tart to the grilled gluten free almond cake, these desserts were all out in force. The gluten cake was my favourite and yes, more healthy as well.

A new concept from ThaiExpress, Basil by thaiexpress targets the young, wild and trendy food goers. Its debut outlet at kallang wave mall aims to attract the young and wild generation seeking good and afforable food with a hip and rustic ambience.

 
so am told that the dishes at this new outlet are mostly whipped up from scratch. It is evident as I could taste that most of the ingredients such as the prawns and coconut used were really fresh.

the dishes

Papaya Salad 

 
Light refreshing and all so spicy. I was just back from thailand a couple weeks ago and i realise how a good papaya salad comes about is the need for fresh ingredients.

Thai Fish cake

 
You can't go wrong with fish cakes. The one my basil was a tad soft but still had that otah thai fish cake taste. Marries well with the sweet and spicy sauce provided too!

Thai style salted egg calamari

 
Fried calamari on a wooden dish topped with salted egg yolk sauce. I would say very different from the usual thai salted egg yolk calamaris dished out in Singapore, this is more dry and less sweet. Nonetheless, that taste buds wowing salted egg yolk still delighted the table.

Songkran chicken wings 

 
Wings made to celebrate the Songkran festival. Although it was quite salty, the wings were fragrant and juicy. The seasoning bits over the chicken gave the wings that crunchy sweet texture.

Stir-fried Phuket Bee Hoon 

 
Phuket style bee hoon which was my other favourite dish of the night. That lime gave the whole dish a zesty flavour, coupled with the bee hoon which (my guess) was fried with coconut sauce. Tiger prawns adding a seafood taste to the entire dish. A unique flavour all round.

time for desserts

Mango sticky rice

 
Coconut sauce and mangoes were fresh. Apart from that, nothing much to rave about.

Do.Main @ tanjong katong Smile Apr 05, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bakery | Café

As you walk down or drive pass tanjong katong, you will notice this monochromed, black and white like bakery along one of the shophouses. If you are curious enough to explore, you will find that it is actually a french bakery called Do.Main.

 
The brainchild of baker chef Frederic Deshayes, do.main serves up artisan bread and pastries. as well as savoury items for breakfast lunch and dinner.

What did I try ?

The cream puff aka Paris- Brest 

 
Rare for me to post my favourite item as the first dish, but i can't seem to help it. The crisp exterior with that very tasty cream. I can have 3 at one go.

Charcuterie Platter 

 
A combination of duck & pistachio pate, pork rillette and kurobuta ham. Sourdough bread is served together for the platter and that is when bread and meat comes together. Simply adored the kurobuta ham as well as the pate. Quite filling so its worth to share.

Tartiflette “Reblochon” with bacon and potato 

 
The pungent cheese was overwhelming to an extent. aside, it was a good compliment with the breads that were available. that bacon gave the dish this porkish salty flavour marrying well with the potatoes.

Broken eggs 

 
Coming in two flavours - sour cream or tomato, these are essentially the french version of our half boiled eggs but baked in an oven. The reason it is called broken eggs is because one has to use that stick bread and rigorously mix the contents together. A different take but for the price, i would rather have our kopitiam soft boiled anyday.

The elicars 

 
They have a variety of flavours to choose for the elicars. I chose salted caramel and it didn't disappoint.

Cassolette oven baked escargots 

 
Have never been a fan of snails, but this left me wanting for more. The homemade butter garlic blends well with the shallots. A very surprisingly find here. Chef Frederic Deshayes himself posing for us

Chir Chir @ 313Somerset Smile Apr 03, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Korean Fried Chicken

 
Chir Chir uses only fresh chickens in their outlets, which are married with different flavours and even whipped cream. Sauces are imported direct from the central Chir Chir kitchen in Seoul, giving us diners the exact same tastes as what you would taste in Korea.

 
the drinks

Chir Cream Beer 

 
Inspired by 'a latte kiss' by a hit korean drama, this half or full pint of draught beer topped off with whipped cream is suitable for any occasion. To many, this would be the best of both worlds. For the best taste, stir the foam thoroughly with the beer, but beware of the foaming which comes with the stir.

Tok! Tok! 

 
Comes in different flavours like passion fruit, blue lemonade and green grape, these jug of cocktails gives diners a refreshing choice besides beers

now, the clucking array of food begins ....

the chickens

Crispy fried chicken

 
Two words - Crispy, tender. These chickens goes well with that mustard dipped and for a more tangy taste, the salsa sauce. One of the better fried chickens around.

Garlicky Chicken / Tenders / Wings (5Hands)

 
My favourite dish of the night. The fragrant garlic sauce compliment the chickens really well. What made the dish even gorgeous was the chunks of roasted sweet potatoes and toppoki.

Spicy Chicken / Tenders / Wings 

 
The chilli sauce - SPICY! no joke, if you're no chilli person, it is hard to handle. A must try to those who love spice.

Nest Snow

 

 
The dish that won the most heart. Served on hot plate, cajun chiken tenders lying on a bed of sweet potato mash (the mash is awesome), surrounded by cream sauce and topped with parmesan, mozzarella, cheddar and fresh whipped cream. How not to like i ask you ? A very special and unqiue dish you won't find elsewhere.
