Saveur

Saveur
[Throwback] Always heard about this place serving cheap French cuisine and finally had the chance to try it on day after work.

Saveur
We arrived early so the line wasn’t too bad for a weekday evening.

Saveur
Due to its popularity, they have also extended their space with an adjoining shop next door.

Saveur
Pasta with sakura shrimps.

Saveur
Foie gras with lentils.

Saveur
Duck confit, a staple in French cuisine but not exactly my favorite as I always feel that it is too dry for me.

Saveur
Crispy pork belly with poached egg. I still haven’t figure out why the runny egg is paired with the crispy pork belly.

Cherrykoko 18

CK
Been almost a year since I bought something from Cherrykoko. Now that I am back in Singapore, might be doing the spree on a more regular basis since I still get email queries from time to time. Though, I feel that they customer service has lapsed a little since my last order. They used to send an email informing of shipment but no notification was given this time. I received my package about 3 weeks from the time I placed my order (it used to be about 1-2 weeks in the past) Scrolling through their Facebook page, it looks like delayed ship and no communication after order is placed is the main grouch now.

As usual, their stock availability is super not updated real time as this batch we had at least 5 items out of stock…..Means, another spree is coming soon as I have so much store credit now. =/

CK
Designs are still pretty much the same on Cherrykoko but it seems like loose airy blouses is the trend in Korea now? Got this loose cotton blouse that ties at the waist to create a slim look.

CK
One of their sweet looking dresses from this spree.

CK
I am still a sucker for their plain chiffon tops.

Jade Fullerton

Jade Fullerton
[Throwback January] Since it was close to CNY and our birthdays, a big group of us headed over to Jade Fullerton to try out their dim sum buffet. They have 2 seatings, each lasting about 1.5 hours. I guess age had caught up with us, the same group that could pile plates after plates in Seoul gardens was way back in history that we were all too stuffed beyond words in the hurried sessions. I guess, relax slow eating is more apt for our age.

Jade Fullerton
There were extensive dim sum choices but there were some items that could only be ordered once. For examples, the shark’s fin soup, Lobster congee and chilli crab buns.

Jade Fullerton
I am really a big fan of the deep fried yam dumplings and of course there were the usual mix of chinese dim sum like siew mai and chicken feet.

Jade Fullerton
Steamed pork ribs, xiao long bao, prawn dumpling and chinese chives gyoza.

Jade Fullerton
More savory items like the roast pork, wasabi prawns etc

Jade Fullerton
The most popular item from our group would be the carrot cake as we ordered at least 15 of it.

Jade Fullerton
By the time the chao siew buns and coffee ribs arrived, we were like….who ordered this?!

Jade Fullerton
Would recommend for big and quick eaters else it would too taxing on your tummies. I still prefer to sip my dim sum tea leisurely and relax.

Pasta Brava

Pasta Brava
For our birthdays (yeah, we all share the same birthday month in our family so we have this big eat out if the 4 of us are in town), we headed to Pasta Brava at Craigs Road.

Pasta Brava
We had reservations made earlier so we were quickly seated. This place was filled up by 730pm on that Saturday evening.

Pasta Brava
Hmmmmm, feeling hungry already

Pasta Brava
The table was laid with big sheets of white paper and chalks were provided for us to doodle while waiting for everyone or in between food servings.

Pasta Brava
Parma Ham with rock melon, my favorite Italian appetizer :)

Pasta Brava
Scallops sauteed with white wine and bechamel sauce. One of my favorites from tonight’s menu.

Pasta Brava
Grilled egg plant with cheese.

Pasta Brava
Chicken leg with mushrooms and white wine sauce.

Pasta Brava
White sauce pasta is always my favorite (pouting at my expanding waist line)

Pasta Brava
One of their home made pasta with seafood

Pasta Brava
Mushroom risotto.

Pasta Brava
Thumbs up to their creme brulee dessert cos it was so yummy.

Pasta Brava
Tiramisu was a little average in my opinion.

Pasta Brava
Chocolate lava cake is a must order if you are a fan of the cold outside, hot inside dessert. Overall the meal was quite good except the service was little curt in my opinion. Might be due to the crowd that night but it was just my personal opinion.

La Ristrettos Coffee Boutique

La Ristrettsos
Who would have known that a cafe lies inside the Novena Medial Centre. I wouldn’t know if I wasn’t in the vicinity and did a quick search on google on some food recommendation in Novena area.

La Ristrettsos
A cafe inside the midst of various medical centers, definitely sound intricating.

La Ristrettsos
There is a choice of indoor and outdoor seating, we opt for the outside out their lush green garden with water.

La Ristrettsos
Breakfast set with fresh grape juice.

La Ristrettsos
chicken salad, though the chicken was a little dry….The big breakfast set was yummy though. Quite an interesting place to chill.

The Pelican Seafood Grill & Bar

The Pelican
[Throwback Dec] My friend have this app called The Entertainer where after you purchase the app, you get a lot of 1-1 deals with dining, leisure and wellness. Definitely the app for those who like to eat out pretty often. So we headed down to the Pelician for our Xmas celebration (yeah, now you know how much back log I have) with the intention to use the 1-1 deal.

The Pelican
Nice place to chill out by the bay after work, with their extensive bar.

The Pelican
I always love a loaf of fresh warm bread.

The Pelican
THE PELICAN LOBSTER THERMIDOR which is their oven baked lobster rice (SGD88++)

The Pelican
BIG OL’ BOUILLABAISSE which was a stew of prawn, scallops, mussels, clams and fish (SGD 98++). The meal was pretty worth it considered we have 1-1 so we only paid for the high valued item.

The Pelican
Their lemon meringue is definitely something worthwhile to dig in if you have stomach for some sweets.

Song Kee Fishball Noodles

Song Kee Fishball Noodle
My friend brought me here quoting this place serves the best fishball noodles in our island. Off we went, waiting in line outside the store at 640pm while waiting for the store to open at 7pm but it didn’t open till 715pm and the line had already snaked by that time. By the time we were done with our dinner at 8pm, the place was packed.

Song Kee Fishball Noodle
If you like a bowl of traditional taste, yup! I love the pork fats mixed in that bowl of oily fishball noodles. As a first timer, I got the bowl of all mixed means you get 2 types of fishball and the fish dumpling with a dou pok

Song Kee Fishball Noodle
The noodles was quite chewy

Song Kee Fishball Noodle
But the fish dumpling was the best, very flavorful and full of meat unlike most versions that has more flour taste than fish meat inside.
I would like to visit this place again only if I get to drive there as I feel it is not very accessible by public transport unless by bus.
