Haato & Co. Smile Aug 29, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

 

 
It was not easy to decide what to order because there were so many yummy options! Eventually, we ordered a Chocolate Fudge with Marshmallows ($8.50) to share. The presentation of the waffle look so attractive we could not wait to dig in!

It is alfresco seating at Haato & Co and the wind kept the chocolate sauce that we were supposed to drizzle on the waffle flying. Nevertheless, we managed to devour this divine waffle without making a mess. The waffle was crusted on the outside and soft on the inside, making a perfect combination with the vanilla gelato. However, we felt that the gelato melted too quickly.

We only left the place after a good solid 3 hours and that was probably the longest time I have ever sat down with friends by the riverside with some good waffles.

Kith Cafe Smile Aug 22, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Brunch

Exams are over and the holidays are finally here! Met up with Hui Yin and Celine for brunch at Kith Cafe on a Monday morning. Yes, a Monday morning! The luxury of waking up on a weekday for brunch simply spells awesome.

 
Looking at the handwritten menu on their chalkboard wall and deciding what to eat.

 
Toast with poached eggs - $7.50

Despite knowing that their Big Breakfast is highly raved, we decided to just have toast with poached eggs because we have never tried poached eggs (or simply because we wanted to leave room for desserts) before!

 
Took this picture before we added a dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper to our poached eggs. Look at that golden goodness flow and those grill lines on the toasts! And then when you dab the toast with the runny egg yolk, oh goodness gracious me, that morsel just taste so good. Not to mention, the toasts went very well with the cold butter.

 

 
The cafe was rather empty when we reached at about 11am. We soon found ourselves to be surrounded by Caucasians and their kids when it hit noon. Kith Cafe seems to be a favorite with the expats. Great location to chill out with friends, food are served at affordable prices and without GST and service charge, who wouldn't like the place?

The Fabulous Baker Boy Smile Mar 15, 2013

For full review, please visit: http://gastronomicalbliss.blogspot.sg/2012/12/the-fabulous-baker-boy.html

I was supposed to meet Vanessa and Yong Lin for brunch at Rider's Cafe but (I woke up late) we had a change of plans and decided to meet for desserts at The Fabulous Baker Boy instead.

 

 
Expect to dine al fresco style because there are only 3 counter seats indoors. Initially, we were afraid that it would be warm but it turned out to be quite cooling. Hurray!

 
Just look at all those cakes on the cake stands. So tempting! FYI, these were not all that they were serving, there were some more cakes in the fridge so do check out their fridge as well when you are there!

 
Big Lub's Carrot Cake - can't remember the price

This was our favourite. I like how it is full of raisins, dried fruits and nuts! It is like eating an energy bar but a moist cake version. I thought everything, from the coconut slices to the cream cheese frosting was just nice and complement each other so well.

 
Green Tea Cake with Almond Praline - $7.50

The green tea butter cream was so good that Yong Lin couldn't stop eating it and the butter torte was so fluffly!

 
Ab Fab Red Velvet Cake - $8.50

I would say that their red velvet cake hit the spot but Vanessa and Yong Lin think otherwise. They commented that the cake tastes normal to them. Then again, it is a personal preference.

I wouldn't mind going back again for their cakes or even try their lunch/dinner menu items. The place is pretty laid back and good for catching up with friends over delectable desserts.

Grin Affair Smile Mar 15, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bakery | Desserts and Cakes

While I was researching on how to get to the internship company which I was suppose to have interview with, I was thrilled to know that Grin Affair is in close vicinity!

Grin Affair specializes in jar cakes and the first time I had some was on my 20th birthday this year. Glenn knows that I have been wanting to try their cakes so he surprised me with two jars that day! <3

He bought me Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut flavors. But I kinda forgot how they taste like so I decided to pop by Grin Affair after my internship interview! I was a little too early when I reached (about 11am) because they only open for business at 12 noon.

 
But I must be in luck that day because Grin Affair opened (while I was still lingering around and waiting for my bus) shortly after! First customer of the day is me. YAY!

 
Grin Affair promotes recycling so you are more than encouraged to return your jar to get a ticket! You can accumulate your tickets and redeem those items. Other than the jar, the string can also be reused.

 
Check out these nice packaging for the jar lids!

 

 

 
Dark Chocolate - $5.50 (4.5/5)

Grin Affair only accepts cash so I put together all the loose change I had and bought a jar. It was a treat to myself after my internship interview, even though Glenn said I should only celebrate after I am being accepted into any of the companies. Haha! Ok la I admit, I just want to eat. No other reasons.

 
I thought the amount of sea salt dulce de leche was just nice and I was literally scraping the dark chocolate mousse down to its last bit. Mmmm so goooooood. I'll pop by again soon to try other flavors!

Porn's Smile Mar 13, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai

After a day of shopping at Bugis, we were contemplating between Porn's and Itacho Sushi for dinner. Decided on Porn's!

 

 
Cha Yen - $3.90 (4/5)

So for the iced lemon tea lovers, this iced tea is a milk tea, not lemon tea. The tea is much sweeter than our standard milk tea, so people with a sweet tooth would probably find this to their liking.

 
Tom Yum Gai - $8.90 (5/5)

Looks like some herbal chicken soup, no? It doesn't look spicy at all, right? Don't judge a soup by its colour! Those with a low tolerance for spicy food will definitely miss out on this awesome soup. This soup is a flavour burst! Sour when you first taste it, sweet after the sourness subsides, then the spicy-ness kicks in.

 
Pad Thai Talay - $10.90 (4.5/5)

DIY Pad Thai! Don't like spicy? Like spicy? Don't like peanuts? Like peanut? Add in your preferred amounts. The Pad Thai is light and not oily, which is how a Pad Thai should be

 
Green Curry with Chicken (Gang Kaew Gai) - $10.90 (5/5)

The tender slices of chicken that came with it were succulent and the brinjal seems to have absorbed the sweetness of the curry and were very soft and juicy. The curry was quite thick, but as the dish got colder, it got a wee bit watery. No issues there though, still as delicious, especially when paired with rice.

Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost full, and there were only 3 waiters, the service was very prompt and our food arrived in less than 20 minutes from the time we ordered. Porn's is definitely worth the try!
