Boyfriend has been wanting to bring me to Ippudo for quite a while. He kept telling me that this is one of THE BEST ramen in Singapore. 

If the length of the queue and waiting time is any indication of the quality of the food, Ippudo's ramen must be fantastic because we waited for about 45 minutes even though we were quite early (according to Boyfriend) and the queue never seems to get any shorter!

I ordered Shiromaru Tamogo because I love Japanese braised egg and a hearty broth. It is a little salty for my taste but it is otherwise a superb bowl of ramen.

Boyfriend ordered Shrimp Bun and said that I had to try this. The buns are soft and fluffy, the shrimp are fried till a beautiful golden colour, the whole thing is just so delicious. 

Boyfriend also ordered Spicy Shrimp Mayo. I was a little hensitant when I saw the word "spicy" but it was not that spicy after all. The juicy prawns are wrapped in flour and fried till the whole thing puffs out. When you bite into it, the puff deflates and the tenderness of the prawns makes me just want to eat on and on. 

I agree that Ippudo serves good ramen at affordable price, the only thing is that it is a little too crowded and the queue is a little too long. Just a little, but not enough to hold me 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.
