I am not a fan of TSP until I came across Loong Fatt TSP so..... please have a try!

The best part is probably that they prepare their TSP on the spot so every batch you buy will be hot from the oven! Of course, that said, it is best eaten when its hot. The buttery taste is best savoured hot and flaky!

Yes, this is my favourite TSP in town! Normally, I will only get the salty ones as I feel that the sweet ones are a bit too sweet for my liking. Look at those pastry! They are calling out to you, readers! Have a try and understand why I am so excited!

For full review, please visit http://thumbsforfood.blogspot.sg/2012/12/brunetti-tanglin-mall.html

Brunetti originated from Austrailia and is well known for its desserts as well as coffee. It also serves breakfast menu where it's specialty breakfast set is available till 2pm. It also has an all-day breakfast menu as well as an all-day dining menu which serves main courses.

When you step into the restaurant you would be greeted by a cozy ambience with rows of desserts, pies, pastries, gelato lining on the right. It makes me excited to see the different variety of food placed in glass displays. It just whets the appetite. Your will have to get your own seat in the restaurant and order straight from their counter.

We didn't manage to catch the breakfast menu available till 2pm. However, if you get to Brunetti's in time for it, do try the Italian Breakfast ($14.90). It is highly recommended by my friend for its generous portion.

We decided to order dishes from the all-day breakfast section as well as main courses. The food is pretty affordable with most prices ranging from $10 to $20+.

Seafood Stew was one of our favorite dishes that day. It is served with two slices of bread and a handful of greens. The delicious thing was it's flavorful gravy and portion of seafood. The gravy is thick and most suitable to be eaten with bread. There is pasta that is inside the dish as well. I really like the pasta as it was well-cooked and thus have a good texture. Definitely a must-have when we visit this place again.

Red Snapper was a recommendation by the waiter. The fish is served beautifully on the p[late which makes it look extremely appealing to the tastebuds. The fish was cooked well and fresh. What I really liked was that the fish complemented really well with the mushrooms, slices of fruits, olives and gravy that was served. It is really quite an appetizing and refreshing dish.

The Yuzu Macaron I felt is quite special and it's yuzu flavor really permeated the shell of the macaron. The filling is chocolate that we felt complemented the yuzu flavor well.

The Lemon Meringue Tart was highly recommended in online reviews. So, we had to try it for ourselves. I felt that the lemon feeling in the tart was good and went well with the meringue on top of it. The meringue wasn't too sweet which was good because I am not fan of sweet meringues. Do try the tart if you're there for desserts!

Overall, we would be back for it's brunch before 2pm. The brunch here as quipped from a friend is one of the most affordable, good quality and generous portion. The mains has some hits and misses. For the desserts, we found it a bit too pricey in relative to it's other dishes. However, if you're a dessert lover, you'll sure be spoilt for choice in Brunetti.

Lastly, they have a 1-for-1 promotion after 7pm from Sunday-Friday on selected desserts, pastries and stuff. So, if you're in the area, no harm swinging by to see what's on sale!

One of the best waffles!  Smile Apr 10, 2013

For full review, please visit http://thumbsforfood.blogspot.sg/2013/02/haato-co-clarke-quay-thumbsforfood.html

Haato & Co. is situated at the riverside, outdoors of The Central building. It is an outdoor concept where diners get to enjoy the riverside view while enjoying a drink, waffles and some icecream. Perfect ambience for those who are looking for a spot to chill and people watch.

They serve 3 different combinations of waffle, as you can see below! You can choose your ice cream from the ice cream counter depending on your preference.

They have drinks at reasonable prices as well. Whether it is alcoholic or non-alcoholic, they do serve up a variety!

Having said that, I would definitely be back for their waffles! And who can resist the opportunity to sit by the riverside with a cuppa and some good waffles while enjoying the scene at Clarke Quay? They have branches at Thomson Plaza and Ridgewood Close as well!

For full review, please visit http://thumbsforfood.blogspot.sg/2012/09/he-zhong-carrot-cake.html

Most commonly found carrot cake are the loose sort which allows choice of black or white carrot cake. But, for me my top most love is this kind of packed into a layer glued by egg in between of carrot cake and chye poh (salted radish).

I can just eat this every morning if its situated near my house. YES, this is a must-try for all carrot cake lovers! If not you'll definitely regret! Minimum order is $2.

Beef noodle is one of my favourite hawker food. But, it normally doesn't come cheap. I think most of us are familiar with Hock Lam Beef Noodles. One bowl of noodles would set you behind by about $10.

Well, if you are looking for value, visit the stall at Bendemeer Food Centre. It is only 5 minutes walk from the Boon Keng MRT station! There was a slight queue when we went there at about 1 pm on a Saturday.

We had the Sliced Beef + Beef balls noodles as we do not eat the other parts of the beef (e.g. tendons) They have the $3/$4 options which is really affordable. I especially like that they added sesame oil to the black sauce. The taste of the sesame oil is strong enough for me to spot it! Their chili is different from that at Hock Lam but I liked it.
