Fruit Juices served in cute test tubes. They serve water in beakers too!

We had:

 
Truffle Fries - $12

(Fries dipped with truffle oil served with truffle mayo dip)

Noone can resist good old truffle fries. At $12, some may find this to be a litle pricey, but I felt that it was one of the better truffle fries I have had. I was sold to their truffle mayo dip too!

 
Masago Caviar Pasta - $20

(Baked half shell scallop topped with fresh quail egg and caviar masago)

This caught our attention when the table beside us ordered it and nope, no regrets. The pasta was lightly tossed in aglio olio style and the scallops serbed were huge and really fresh. The quail egg added an amazing finishing touch with its broken yolk. A tad pricey, but high recommended!

 

 
Messy Breakfast - $17

(Truffle infused scrambled eggs on a toasted english muffin, roasted sweet potatoes, bacon-wrapped pineapple, oxford sausages, roasted tomato and fruity salad)

I felt that their breakfast was a bit of a disappointment. The truffle scrambled eggs were too strongly scented and I felt that it was overpowering. The bacon-wrapped pineapples didn't catch my liking too. The only thumbs up were their oxford sausages!

 

 
Fruity Berries - $17

(Seasonal berries pancakes with apple compote and strawberries, drizzled with maple syrup)

Loved this!!! One of the few pancakes I have had that infuses fruits into their pancakes. It was so fluffy and moist! Loved the batter that they used too. You should really try this, together with the Masago Caviar Pasta when you are there!

 
Service:

The servers knew that we wanted an indoor seat and was so attentive to our every need. The orders arrived really quickly too!




Atmosphere:

A really cosy cafe though it might get a little squeesy indoors. Outdoor seating is available too, though I wouldn't recommend it as it's just beside the dusty roadside and under this scorching heat.

Morganfield's Singapore  Smile May 07, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Bars/Lounges | Restaurant | Steaks and Grills

Morganfield’s is known for their signature Sticky Bones – prime pork ribs basted in sweet tangy hickory BBQ sauce. Recently, we were hosted to a Bloggers’ Party at Morganfield’s brand new outlet at Suntec City. True to the spirit of Southern hospitality, we were treated to an American feast like no other.

The friendly people at Morganfield’s served up their best dishes for the evening. Here are some of the highlights of what we had.

 
Bacon wrapped prawns

 
Candied bacon

 
Sauteed Mushrooms - $9.90

(King mushroom sauteed with merlot garlic butter, sprinkled with parmesan cheese)

 
The Caesar - $12.90

(Fresh romaine lettuce tossed with homemade Caesar dressing, topped with crispy pork bacon bits, croutons and Parmesan cheese. A classic favorite!)

 
Pop Corn Pork - $8.90

(Pork cubes marinated with Morganfield's secret spice mix and deep fried till crisp. Served with homemade Garlic Aioli and BBQ Ranch Sauce)

 
Russet Potato Skin - $9.90

(Baked potato skin loaded with mixed cheese and crispy pork bacon bits. Served with BBQ Ranch Sauce)

 
Classic Mojito - $15.90

(Rum, Lime Chunks, Mint leaves, Brown sugar & splash of soda)

Virgin Lychee Mojito - $9.90

(Lychees, Mint leaves, Brown sugar topped with soda)

 
Bread Pudding - $9.90

(Comforting homemade bread pudding. Served warm with ice-cream and whiskey sauce)

 
Chocolate Lava Cake - $14.90

(Moist, warm chocolate cake filled with rich molten chocolate. Served warm with vanilla ice-cream and caramel sauce)

Special mention goes to the Carnivore platter that we had. Consisting of a full slab of their signature hickory BBQ pork ribs, half roast chicken, grilled sausages, corn bread, and a truckload of fries, the Carnivore platter certainly lived up to its name. Needless to say, the Sticky Bones stood out as the highlight of the platter. Succulent and juicy to the bone, we couldn’t get enough of it.

This sharing portion serves up to 3-4 people.

 
The Carnivore - $95.90

1) Choice of any full Slab Sticky Bones

(Hickory BBQ, Tuscan baked spicy, Smoked peppercorn, Garlic BBQ or Spicy Asian BBQ)

2) Choice of any 1/2 Roasted Chicken

(Herb roasted, Tequilla spiked, Honey stung or BBQ)

3) Grilled Sausages

4) Garden Salad

5) Grilled corn on the cob

6) Corn bread

7) French fries

 

 

 

 
Morganfield’s also has a range of specialty American craft beers on offer. We rarely see American craft beers in Singapore, this is surely a bonus for any beer connoisseur out there. Our favourites were the Dead Guy and Hazelnut beers, which paired absolutely well with the smoky ribs.

 
Morganfield’s offers a value-for-money Set Lunch promotion, priced from $9.90++. You get to choose from a selection of 17 mains, thumbs up for variety indeed. Each set comes with free Soup of the Day or House Salad and a soft drink or hot/coffee tea.

For the alcoholics in us, do rejoice as Morganfield’s has a Happy Hour promotion from 11am – 8pm (Mon-Sat), and all day on Sunday. Happy Hour Carlsberg Draught Beer at $10 per pint and for $9 per glass of Happy Hour House Wine or Spirits. Located right outside Promenade MRT station, the outdoor bar at Morganfield’s Suntec outlet is perfect for an after-work chill out session.

 

 

 
Special thanks to Juliana Iskandar for the invitation, Alex for bringing me along and Morganfield’s Singapore for the warm hospitality.

The Burger Office Smile May 07, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Burgers and Sandwiches

 
I was invited to The Burger Office a while back together with foodies like Ace, Carolyn and Wen Hui thanks to Yummypin! The Burger Office is a little burger shack located at Goldhill Plaza (Nearest to Novena MRT) and it serves a variety of mouth-watering dishes - from burgers to pizzas and even fried mars balls! Oh and not to forget the caramel donuts we tried. They've a wide range of sides which will definitely leave you spoilt for choice!

 

 

 

 
Burger Office Burger - $12

(Fresh Lettuce, tomatos, pickles, beef patty and homemade burger office sauce)

The beef patty was juicy and it was served with freshly toasted buns. The burger office sauce had a sweet tinge to it, but it complemented the patty well. Thumbs up to the fries too btw! Couldn't stop munching on them.

 
The Burger Office Burger was also available in the chicken version!

 
Pepperoni Pizza - $20 (For 12")

(Tomato sauce, mozerella, pepperoni, bell peppers, onion and garlic)

Loved the pizza though the pepperoni was a little overcooked. sad The toppings were generously spread on each slice of pizza as well!

 
Donuts with caramel dip

Oh the caramel dip! This was by far one of my favorite dishes served to us (apart from the burgers). I'm an avid fan of donuts and these were fried to perfection. Another plus point was that they weren't oily too! Heh didn't felt too sinful enjoying it.

I forgot to take a picture of the Fried Mars Balls that we tried, but they were extremely delicious! Definitely something I would order when I'm back at The Burger Office.

 

 
They also serve a wide range of beer and other alcoholic beverages, so it's also a great place to hang out after work!

And foodies being foodies, we even went to the extent of standing on chairs to perfect our burger shot. Thankfully there were no one else there who would have judged us hahaha. But I mean, #foodiepride man! Heh and that means going all out just for a good picture.

Another food-tasting session held at Blackbird Bistro + Bar thanks to Yummypin! For those who don't know, Blackbird Bistro + Bar is a New Zealand inspired cafe that offers a wide variety of NZ inspired dishes. They also have happy hour from 4-8pm and you'll be sure to get selected alcohol at discounted prices! We were given a variety of dishes to sample, and boy were they mind-blowingly good. Most of the items came with a certain East meets West fusion which tickled my taste buds, and they were priced really affordably too!

I was really trying to limit the number of "favorite" dishes I had, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. One of the main highlights of the tasting session was definitely the Miso cod fish, which literally melted in our mouths. Thumbs up to the crispy pork belly and Marc's kiwi burger too! I don't usually gush about cafes like that, nor did they pay me to write this post, but the food served were really impeccable.

I'm pretty sure I'll return for them again!

Food Review: Revelry Cafe Smile May 07, 2015

Menu

We Had:

 

 
Waffle Royale - $17.50

(Poached eggs, smoked salmon, baby spinach and hollandaise on Belgian waffle)

One thing I loved about Revelry was that their waffles were light, so it served as a good accompaniment with either the sweet or savory toppings. The hollandaise sauce was flavorful and creamy, which definitely got a thumbs up from us. The smoked salmon wasn't too salty, and was just nice for my liking. Eggs wise, it was a pity that only one of them was poached well.

 
Chicken and Waffles - $16

(The classic soul food: crispy chicken thigh on our Belgian waffle, served with maple syrup on the side)

One of the signature dishes that lived up to its name!

The fried chicken thigh was really crispy and definitely not oily. We drenched both the fried chicken and waffles in maple syrup and they went perfectly with it. I would highly recommend you to order this when you visit Revelry!

 
Atmosphere:

The cafe was rather spacious, and it would be a place where I would head to chill. Good for group gatherings as well. The hanging lanterns added a whimsical vibe to the cafe.

Service:

The waffles took longer than expected to arrive. But good food is definitely worth the wait!
