Coffee Club #1

I decided to try out the True Fitness outlet at Chevron House, which is just beside Raffles MRT station, which make it very convenient for me to go home.

I was hungry, so I decided to have a good meal at Raffles Place before going to the gym.

However, to my dismay, the only restaurants open were Starbucks, MOS Burger and Burger King. I didn’t come all the way here to have fast food!

After walking for a bit, I finally managed to find the only decent restaurant, Coffee Club. I have not eaten there for quite a number of years, so I decided to have lunch there.

I ordered Baked Shrimp-crusted Salmon and Exotic Passion Earl Freeze.

The Exotic Passion Earl Freeze is absolutely delicious. The menu described it as “Earl Grey lovers’ delight – ice blended tea lavished with bits of passion fruit”. I was prepared for the bitterness of tea, but all I could taste was a delightfully refreshing drink with a hint of vanilla and crunchy passion fruit bits.

The Baked Shrimp-crusted Salmon, however,did not quite meet my expectation. I love the presentation, but the mashed potato still cannot compare to Fika’s. The lemonade sauce is a little too strong. The shrimp crust is a really good idea, but it overpowered the taste of the salmon, which is the star of the dish.

I will definitely be back again. There are so many delicious foods to eat here, how can I not come back?

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.
