Eggs & Berries #3

Sean called me while I was on my way to the Australian University Open House which was hosted by IDP. I was having lunch at Kenny Rogers when he called me, asking me if I would like to have dinner with him. 

I met up with him at CityLink Starbucks and we made our way to Eggs and Berries (I was given a choice of Eggs and Berries and Food For Though at Botanic Gardens, I chose Eggs and Berries because it is too far for me to go alone) after I finished the hot chocolate that he bought for me at Starbucks. 

This time both of us were not hungry, so we ordered one portion each, and two starters.

We ordered Mushroom and Fresh Mushroom Cream Soup for starters. The Fresh Mushroom Cream Soup is still one of the best I have tasted. Sean doesn’t like the Mushroom, which is deep-fried mushroom, saying they are too oily (he actually squeezed the oil out before he ate them), but I really liked them. The mushrooms are fresh and juicy, the juice from the mushrooms covers the oiliness.

Sean ordered his favourite Beef and Cheese Omelette, but he says that it doesn’t have the “wow” factor like the first time he had it. I kind of agree with him. The beef pieces are still delicious, but there’s not enough cheese this time, so it doesn’t taste as good.

I ordered Bacon, Onion and Mushroom Omelette. The bacon pieces has such a heavy flavor, I could taste it in every mouthful. Even the onions are tolerable, and I have never liked onions. All in all, it’s a wonderful dish.

Both Sean and I agree that Eggs and Berries make the best omelette. Their omelette is packed with eggs, unlike the uncooked and watery ones served at Cedele.  

I ended the meal with Crème Brulee. It’s delicious, but I don’t remember it to be so watery.

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.

I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.

Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.

The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.
For drinks,…

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.

The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
