Good Ol' Cafe

The only reason I know about this place is because I used to work part-time as a waitress at the other outlet. I only worked part-time because I was too bored and in need of something to do. 

Do you know what is the worst thing for a food lover like me? It's seeing plates of delicious food being served and I can't eat any of them. When I stopped working there, I decided to bring then-boyfriend there to celebrate our anniversary. 

The outlet I brought us too is called Good Ol' Cafe is located in YESS Centre which is somewhere around Pasir Panjang area. 

We started the meal with squid calamari and this I-forgot-its-name starter platter. The squid calamari are fried to a beautiful golden, and they are a delight to eat. 
I don't really remember much about the starter platter, so most likely it is not that good.

For the main course, then-boyfriend had Baby Back Ribs while I had Rack of Lamb. I am no expert on ribs, so I shall not give any comments, but the lamb was really not bad. The meat is tender, yet it has a slight firmness which makes it all the more enjoyable. The sauce, however, can be improved. I remember eating lamb with this sweet peppermint sauce which left a very lasting impression on me.

For desserts, I ordered Creme Brûlée while then-boyfriend had an assortment of cakes. Nothing special about the desserts, everything is just average.

Good Ol' Cafe is well-kwown for their steak, maybe I should have that the next time I visit.

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.
