What I like about Sun with Moon is the modern decor, reasonable price, decent japanese food, value for money set lunches, what more can you ask for? But do bear in mind and try to make a reservation during the peak hours, as getting a table can be quite a hassle. I've had a number of meals here and not been disappointed; I feel that the quality in relation to the price of the food, I'm pretty much satisfied with what Sun with Moon has to offer.

We had the California crunch roll which I felt as pretty good, as it had a good bite to it on the inside, and the crackling burst of flying fish roe gave the usual california maki a nice twist. The avacado roll was pretty good as well, however i do prefer the former. The rolls here come in 4 pieces of 8 pieces, giving theirs customers a choice to have more variety especially when eating in smaller groups.

The chirashi don came with a rainbow of raw sliced sashimi, though most of it was salmon sashimi. But what I like about it is the mixture of sashimi and glazed salmon, hence adding another layer of flavours to the usual chirashi don.

The service here is pretty decent, however don't expect tip top service during the weekends or peak hours, as they seem shorthanded at times, hence unable to attend to the tables promptly. However, food is always served promptly when i make a trip down here despite peak hours or not, lunch or dinner. All in all, it's a place worth dropping by if you are craving for a simple japanese fare somewhere in town.

awfully chocolate OK Aug 04, 2012

Awfully chocolate started off as a small plain white empty store selling take away chocolatey fudgy cakes coming in only three flavours-plain, rum and raisin and chocolate banana, and they have now expanded its wings into cafes, and sister restaurants, offering a wider variants of chocolatey desserts and other sweets. We decided to pop by Awfully chocolate along joo chiat one rainy afternoon, hoping some rich and thick chocolate would chase away the weekday blues. The white-washed cafe is a 3-in-1 concept: awfully chocolate, mooshi bakes and mooshi bistro, which means we could order different desserts from 3 different (one in the same actually) cafes, whatever the case is, it was good news for us!!

We had Hei ice cream which was extremely sinful but I do not regret at all, because it was overwhelming with chocolate, real chocolate!! Accompanied with moist and warm super stacked chocolate cake is best suited for die-hard chocoholics!!! The extremely soft chocolate cake melts in your mouth and its smooth velvety texture leaves you craving for more. Guaranteed to chase away any blues of any sort.

We also had the banana cream pie which caught me by surprise with its fragrant banana caramel and amazing blend of flavours and texture. It was dry nor soggy nor overly sweet. The custard wasn't too sweet, hence the sweetness came from the caramel and banana, giving the pie a nice balance to it. Definitely worth the try.

The pear Fragipane Tart was also good, not my top choice though. Especially not when it lack in frangipani essence or flavours. It seemed more like a normal pear tart to me. (Wasn't really a tart to me, the base was more of a cake.) Not something I would go back for.

XLB OK Jul 26, 2012

Though Din Tai Fung has been around for awhile but there is somehow always a queue during the peak periods and weekends. I guess you can never go too wrong with Din Tai Fung as the menu is pretty standard with the occasional feature dishes such as chocolate Xiao Long Bao or Red Bean rice dumplings, which i find are pretty good and do add an interesting twist to the usual flavours. The food quality here is rather consistent and prices are reasonable which perhaps explains the perpetual queue.

One of my favourites here is the Shrimp Fried Rice (S$10). The rice has a nice "q q" bite to it with generous servings of fresh prawns and golden egg. Nothing extraordinary, but it is a satisfying dish.

The precise 18 fold xiao long bao (S$10.80 for 10) is meaty and soupy on the inside, do be cautious when popping the whole XLB into your mouth! The XLB skin is thin and light which soaks up the the flavour of the pork soup encased in it.

After being overwhelmed by the pork fat, we were curious to try the vegetable dumpling. I find it rather bland and boring. Perhaps it's something you might want to give a miss.

Another dish worth trying is the spring roll. The crispy skin was surprisingly not oily and the salty sweet fillings in the "spring roll" added a nice crunch to it.

I have always enjoyed weekend brunches with a group of good friends, sharing unpretentious food in a relaxed setting, laughing and talking all afternoon. I wanted my first post to be memorable and nothing is more meaningful than having a good food with great company. We decided to try out Group Therapy-A cosy little cafe nestled on the upper rows of shophouses along Duxton Road. We were greeted by a some very friendly and laid-back ladies who really harmonized with the atmosphere, making it a perfect weekend brunch hideout.

S. and I decided to go with the Ravioli Roasted Wild Mushroom In Black Squid Ink Pasta with Tomato Basil Sauce and Truffle Oil ($20). It was refreshing and light, and roasted mushrooms and tomatoes came through as a simple home-cooked dish that had layers of vibrant flavours to it.

I realized T.S. has a thing for scrambled eggs, and so he had the Eggs Done The Way You Like It Served with a Toasted Bagel ($11), scrambled of course. The eggs were light and fluffy, but it was probably not salty enough for him, as he seemed to be adding dashes to it. It was basically a what you see is what you get brekkie. Straightforward.

T. had the famous Grilled smoked Ham Mushroom and Mozzarella Cheese Panini ($14). This classic sandwich won T's heart as its so simple but so satisfying. My apologies on the rather blurred pictures of the sandwich, thus leaving them out. But this sandwich is definitely not to be missed!

ZY had the Beef Shank Stew with Carrots and Potatoes served with Bread ($15). It was a very hearty stew that was well-cooked and has definitely been stewing for sometime as the beef shanks had a nice robust flavour to it and the veggies in there soaked up the beef essence. This beef stew is something I would like to have on a cold rainy day, when I'm all comfy in my pyjamas, accompanying me while i watch a good ole' movie.

A weekend brunch won't ever be complete without its sweets. We all tucked into Granny Smith's Apple Crumble ($10.50). The apples were nice ad tart, and the crumble was just sweet enough not to overshadow the slightly sour granny smiths. It was served chilled and was a nice ending to happy brunch for a happy bunch

swirls OK Jul 11, 2012

Singapore seems have bouts of fad food fever, and I think the cupcake crave has been getting on quite well recently. There has been numerous designer and boutique cupcake shops spouting out at nooks and corners. After brunch one Saturday afternoon, we happen to pass by this little cupcake shop along robertson quay and decided to give it a try. Since they had both mini and regular sized cupcakes, I think it wouldn't be too difficult to stomach one or two after such a heavy brunch. Personally I like mini cupcakes, because it's less filling and we get to try more flavours.

The array of colourful display is really attractive, making you feel like a kid in a candy store. As I was very full from a big breakfast, I decided to go with the mini red velvet (regular S$3.95). The chocolate flavour came out quite nicely and blended with the not overly sweet cream cheese frostings. However I did find the cupcake a tad dry. Which I'm not sure if it's because of the mini size, perhaps mini cupcakes are usually drier in texture as the regular ones.

The taste was alright. Nothing much to rave about. But perhaps i could give Swirls another shot and have the regular ones instead!!
