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, I had Stir It Up. This is apparently their signature drink, but I am not impressed. The presentation is good, but the chocolate-milk is not chocolatey enough. It tastes more like diluted milo.

The desserts are not listed on the menu and when the waitress said Seasalt and Caramel Cake, Mariem and I immediately decided on it and we were not at all disappointed. The cream on-top and in between the layers were all made of seasalt and caramel. The saltiness of seasalt and sweetness of caramel matches perfectly. The sponge cake is soft and fluffy. The only complain I have is that it is too big a piece and we have problem finishing it.

Water is free-flow and self-served, dispensed from this giant glass flask filled with lemons, strawberry, and mint leaves. This has got to be the most delicious water I have ever tasted! 

The food served at I AM Cafe is definitely not the best I have eaten but the relaxing ambience and liveliness of the place makes up for it. The fact that there is a cute waiter working there is probably one of the most important reasons Mariem is going back there again and again.

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 …

Company Hong Kong Trip (30 April 2016 - 2 May 2016)

The clinic has decided to have our annual company trip on 30 April 2016 to make use of the Labor Day long weekend. After much debate, it was decided that we shall go to Hong Kong, the land of food and shopping. 
Although I did not join my colleagues for the last company trip to Hong Kong, I know that the only thing they will want to do is to shop. They don't have to eat, they don't have to sightsee, they only want to shop! That's not the way I like to spend a holiday. I am more of a eating and sightseeing kind of girl, so I decided to plan my own itinerary. My colleagues from the Suntec City branch and Susan from the main office decided to follow my itinerary. 

Kinetic Rain is a new art installation at Changi Airport Terminal 1's Departure Check-in Hall. The iconic moving structure is made up of 1216 bronze rain droplets controlled by 1216 individual motors, swirls and dances to form 16 different shapes that depicts the joy of travel.
