Oyster Bar & Grill Wharf: Brunch Menu

The Brunch Menu was restarted on 19 April 2014 but I did not have the time to try it out until today. My roommate Stella is supposed to have dinner with her colleague, Brandon, so I decided to join them.

I did my homework and I already know what I was going to order before I even reached the restaurant. I am going to order the Big Breakfast. 

When they say big breakfast, it literally means that the breakfast is big (I think huge is a more appropriate word here). There is salad with sesame dressing which is absolutely delicious, french fries which I thought I opted out but they stubbornly remain, a slice of thick bread which is baked till crispy in every bite and taste so good with butter, mushroom soup that can be a lot better, Italian sausage (you can choose between Italian and cheese), bacon that is done just right but a little on the salty side, scrambled egg (there is an option of scrambled or sunny side-up) that goes perfectly with the buttered toast, a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice, a piece of watermelon and a cup of ratatouille that is really good. At $19.80, it is such a steal. This shall be my second favourite place for big breakfast after Food for Thought (Botanical Gardens).

The other item I was eyeing on the brunch menu is the Giant French Toast. Since I am not full yet, I decided to have that too.

It came in a curved rattan bowl. According to Brandon who did the marination, he used 15 eggs and sugar and milk. It sounds good, but I am a little disappointed with the taste. It is not eggy enough, it tastes like I am eating bread soaked in sugar syrup. They put it on the house, that is a sweet gesture. It looks kind of different from what is shown in the flyer, apparently they decided to make it smaller and more compact.

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.
