the cafe was buzzingly busy on a Sunday afternoon and the indoor seating area was totally filled. I'd totally opt for an al fresco in this gorgeously picturesque marina.

picture this. a brilliantly blue sky forms a back drop for numerous pristine white yatches of different shapes and sizes docked at the marina reflecting off the sunlight into the distance.

pictured? perfect.

we were immediately shown to their available tables in the far end of the cafe. I liked being able to choose my tables.
and my view of course.

 
nice big fans that don't blow off your wig (!) but keeps diners cool while taking in the great outdoors.

 
the silhouette of trees of the clear blue skies as you ponder over your meal choices. almost too surreal in the usual hustle and bustle of daily life.

 
Let's indulge a little shall we? Thick cut fries served with truffle mayonnaise. $10.
There's something really attractive about truffle. Truffle in anything except in its original form. Trust me, I've had a whole truffle stuffed under my nose and what happened after was not a sight for sore eyes. This dip was delicious. The bits of truffle were visible and tasted like mushrooms. Nary enough to share. We had to ration it. There's no seconds. But there was mayonnaise and chilli sauce available. Settling for second best.

 
They serve all-day breakfast and the menu runs from 930am-5pm daily.
And Eggs Royale. $16.
Traditional English Muffins with savoury Norwegian smoked salmon slices and two gently poached eggs. Drizzled with creamy hollandaise sauce with a side of rocket. Mmm. Eggs. It's a skill to cook these easy ingredients well.
If you didn't already know, Prive runs their own bakery so these soft and fluffy English muffins are are made in house. And these muffins are what I would come all the way here for.

The staff are also quietly attentive, topping up the glasses of water and clearing plates once we were done. It was a pleasure to dine here.

Ending Sunday with a quiet stroll along keppel marina. Every Sunday should be like this. smile

lunch Smile Sep 29, 2013   (Related Review)

Lunch was decadent.

 
crispy roast pork.
eating them in bite sized portions like this with mustard drops at the side was yums!

 
the stir fried longevity noodles with seafood was well fried with flavour without an oily aftertaste. the amount of seafood was also satisfactory.

 
and we couldn't resist the peking duck.

 
here, the staff does the carving and wrapping of these parcels for you. of course you could opt to do it yourself. but we were dining with a mummy of a crybaby. these conveniently packed parcels were a simple blessing for her.

need MEAT. Smile Sep 29, 2013

I gotta say.

 
The chilli here was addictive. And just between the three of us, we finished an entire squeeze bottle of it. oops.

 
we went for the ala carte buffet on the waitress' recommendations. At about $36 per pax, you get your pick of meats and other steamboat items on the menu.

 
i loved the cheese tofu, but that was really taking up tummy space. the crabstick was not the normal round ones, i liked these a lot better.

the meats were not very heavily marinated but they were all delicious when grilled. a little charred on the sides but juicy in the middle.

then dip it into the sauce.

and repeat.

a hidden find Smile Sep 29, 2013

This was at the end of Smith Street on the second floor.
I wouldn't have stumbled on this place except on a friend's recommendation.
It was a lazy Saturday afternoon and the sweltering heat outside was just forcing us indoors.

 
I decided to get myself a fish and chips.
The batter was well, oily. But in spite of that, it was a nice crisp shell with creamy dory fillet encased within. The wedges were thick cut and addictive but only good when hot.

 
while he got the house burger. done medium. the caramelized onions were yum! but because the patty was well done instead of what we wanted, it was a little dry. The patty was thick though and I could taste the meat juices. The bun was nicely toasted. Soft on the inside. Perfect with melty cheese.

and i happened to drop my knife midway into my meal. I was all prepared to continue eating without the help of a knife but in just moments, the attentive waitress brought me a replacement. boy, was i impressed!

For a man with heart.

This is a post for him.

Celebrating 30th years of Plum Village, he decides to give back to society in his own way. By serving up Hakka delicacies for an all-you-can-eat buffet from Friday- Sunday (27/9-29/9) at ticket prices of $30. All proceeds go to Red Cross Society.

 
And this was a feast for both the eyes and the tummy. He had such a wide variety of Hakka foods on offer and at almost 8pm, I could still see them topping up some dishes and the soup just to make sure everyone gets their food piping hot.

The white noodles were fried with minced meat. Although seemingly colourless, it was high on the taste factor. I'm assuming there was oyster sauce and soy sauce in this.

The fried abacus seeds were a little cold when i had them but otherwise savoury. The double boiled chicken soup looked nondescript but tasted absolutely delicious. I had thirds on this.
