Recently, there has been a craze over PV cupcakes. After listening to the many positive feedbacks, I decided that I should have a try at these cupcakes too. It is located at Holland Village just beside the El Patio Mexican Restaurant.

I decided to buy half a dozen to have a try at the cupcakes. Of course, Red Velvet is a must-try for me. The cupcakes are priced at $3.50 for one, and $19 for 6. Some flavours that attracted me were the Banana Chocolate cupcake and the Strawberry Cream cupcake.

Personally, I feel that Plain Vanilla has one of the best cupcakes in Singapore. Of course, there are many rising cupcake stores nowadays. I think most of us are familiar with Twelve Cupcakes but why not have a try at PV?

Coffee at the best temperature! Smile Oct 17, 2012

With the recent craze in cafes around the city, it is really hard to find a nice and peaceful cafe where you can chill with a cup of coffee and slice of cake. 93 degrees C is a place to go if you are looking for such a deal. It is located within walking distance to Harbourfront train station and just at the foot of Mount Faber Hill.

If you enjoy drinking black coffee, have a try at their Siphon Coffee! It is not something that is available in every cafe.

What can be better than being in the company of a cup of freshly brewed coffee and your favourite book on a Sunday afternoon? tongue

We absolutely adore the interior of Cove Stadium with it's open and spacious interior, coupled with a clean modern industrial look. We could imagine how alluring it is at night especially for sports fans who would like to catch the latest matches with a group of friends.
They have Happy Hour from Mondays to Fridays from opening to 10pm. Besides that, they have other drinks promotion ongoing daily. You can visit their website to find out more about their drinks promotions.
For their Weekday Lunch Deal, you can choose from 2 courses at $18 or 3 courses at $21. We went for the 3 course deal.

For starters, we chose the Salad over the Soup of the Day. The salad consisted of Greens served with some grilled pieces of chicken. We liked that the greens were fresh and the chicken well-marinated.
For mains, if I am not mistaken, you get to choose from some selected dishes. We chose the Bacon Spaghetti in Aglio Olio Style. We felt that the pasta was cooked well and well-flavored. However, our qualm would be that the ingredients were not as generous as we would like.

Desserts wise, we chose the Strawberry Compote. The dessert was good. It wasn't too sweet yet preserving the natural flavour of Strawberry.
Overall, we felt that Cove Stadium's Lunch Deal was really good! Plus, their drinks promotion was really attractive as well. If you are with a large group, you may consider their bucket deals. A bonus to the place is that you can choose the al fresco seats to enjoy the beautiful quayside scenery! The food and drinks here are without any taxes as well. We would love to visit this place at night with a group of friends again!

Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is an all-day diner and bar that serves up a wide range of American-style dishes and drinks at affordable prices in an ambient setting. When we stepped into Roosevelt's we felt that we entered a diner in New York; with it's full length windows, industrial-chic interior and cozy ambience.
We were there at evening time and the restaurant was lighted up with warm, orange ceiling bulbs and candles were placed on every table. Patrons could truly feel relaxed and at ease in this warm environment. We also really liked that the furniture were nicely spaced out as it allows diners to have sufficient personal space to engage in conversations comfortably.
We got to find out that Roosevelt's pride themselves for their extensive Wine Menu. Apart from that, they also serve up a few types of Beer and cocktails. As both of us enjoy White Wine better than Red, we sampled all 3 of their Whites. The lightest of the three is the Blanc-Combard ($6 for 75ml) from France. It is slightly acetic with some fruity aroma. The next in line is the Sauvignon Blanc ($7 for 75ml) from New Zealand. It has a fruity taste and I feel is the least spicy wine of the three. The strongest is the Chardonnay, slightly woody with fruity flavours and a buttery note.
We ordered the Garlic Prawns ($12) as one of our Side Dish. Roosevelt's sides range from $7-$12 each. We would love to try their other sides such as Truffle Fries and Fried Oysters the next time we are here. Z's favourite is the Garlic Prawns. She likes is so much that she had 2 servings. The prawns are evenly cooked with an aromatic garlic flavour. The prawns are crunchy whichI would prefer to the soggy ones.
Another side that we tried is their Jalapeño Bacon Mac and Cheese ($11). The Jalapeño flavour was really strong and it added a spicy note to the dish. What was different from Roosevelt's Mac and Cheese is that the added a layer of Bread Crumbs on it, which made the whole Mac and Cheese drier in nature. Personally, I would like the Mac and Cheese to be less dry.
For our dessert, we ordered the Flourless Chocolate cake served with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream as well as Mixed Berries and Apple Crumble also topped with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream. I like that they pair their dessert with Ice Cream as it gives the desserts a balance.
Overall, we had a good dinner, completed with great drinks and desserts!

Good coffee, good ambience Smile Apr 18, 2014

Percolate has a small seating capacity, probably enough for only 20? The walls of the cafe are painted in Black and White with wood-textured furniture. I like the vibe of the cafe - simple, small and cozy. As it is still a relatively new cafe, we were quite happy that the cafe was not crowded. It is definitely difficult to find an empty cafe these days where you can simply just sit, read a book and chill the afternoon away.

 
We decided to try out two of their desserts that were offered. Besides desserts, Percolate also serves up simple sandwiches for those who are looking for something savoury.

Chocolate Espresso Tart was one of our choices. My friend really like this tart. The tart is not very sweet which was good. I like the crust of the tart whereby its quantity was quite balanced with the Chocolate Espresso filling in it.

 
The coffee was good and strong. We all agreed that the coffee was affordable and value-for-money. The coffee comes in either black or white; hot or cold. The white coffee comes in two sizes (3oz or 5oz). Hot coffee are priced below $4 and teas are priced at $5.

 
I saw two other patrons ordered Iced Chocolate and was so tempted just by the look of the drink. Look at it below! The iced chocolate has chocolate infused in the milk. It was appropriately sweet with the right amount of chocolate. I like that it can be refreshing and chocolatey at the same time.

 
Overall, I enjoyed my time at Percolate. We also appreciated that the staff were very friendly. One of them even waved goodbye to us when we left the place. I would definitely be back at Percolate for its coffee and warm ambience! Would love to try their bundt cakes the other time round.
