Restaurant Story

Hello (:

The hols are about to end and we are feeling pretty good because we were away for about 2 weeks. It's been a while since we spent such a long time away from Singapore and more importantly, work. So it's not wrong to say that we're in much better shape compared to before the hols (:

Before the hols end, I think I'd like to share about our elaborate and interesting lunch at Restaurant Story. I especially liked that the different components of the dishes were thoughtfully put together, and that there is some element of surprise when it comes to how certain dishes were served and/or how certain dishes tasted like. It definitely is one of the most memorable meals that we've had thus far (:

We'd 2 'full story' lunches - one pescetarian and the other normal. Most of our dishes were similar but there were some variants when it comes to serving meat. I really appreciated the fact that the staff took effort to create a pescetarian menu to accommodate my dietary preference! (:

























Alright that's all for now (: Have a great weekend everyone!

Chez West

Hello (:

We recently went to Chez West with our good friends to try their dinner set menu and it superseded our expectations on all fronts! (: We particularly liked that the atmosphere is pretty relaxed and that the pace of the meal was comfortable. The pre/post-meal tour of the campus was also a nice touch!

Here are photos of the dishes that were served that night:






We might drop by again in the near future to try other cuisines/ dishes! (: Happy holidays, everyone!

Pizzeria Mozza...

gets it right every single time!




We love it. We will always love it. Especially the heavenly budino that isn't featured here.

Have a great weekend, everyone! (:

The Coffee Academics

Hello (:

We've survived the marking season and have been taking a short break from rigorous work before we jump back in to planning for next semester (:

One place that fed us well and served us surprisingly good coffee to help us pull through the marking period is The Coffee Academics. Truth be told, our first visit to The Coffee Academics was not planned: we happened to be walking around Scotts Square, looking for desserts, and chanced upon this establishment! We had coffee and pancakes the first time we visited and their coffee was so good that it got us hooked! Heh

We've dropped by on two other occasions cos we simply wanted to try the other coffees that they have on their menu as well as to give their savoury main dishes and other desserts a go as well.

Here are some pics of our food & drinks:





 




I'm pretty sure we'll visit this place again in the near future, especially when we want strong coffee and an overwhelmingly large serving of pancakes! Heheh (:

Happy weekend, everyone! (:

Fynn's Cafe

Hello (:

I feel really bad whenever I come back to visit this space because I'm always reminded of how much I've neglected it this year! =| I guess it is inevitable since I post mostly on instagram and this space only gets updated when I'm free or when I want to remember a particular meal for certain reasons.

Last weekend, we went to Fynn's after reading much about the multiple rave reviews. Our opinion is that the food was slightly above average but it wasn't mindblowingly awesome! In fact, what we both liked most was their salad because the dressing and the ingredients worked exceedingly well together! (:

I was slightly taken aback by how simple their pancake stack was, cos I had expected more fruits and a 'more special' kind of fruit compote but I guess they might have wanted to keep things simple and to just allow us to enjoy the 5 pieces of pancake with yummy coconut butter and maple syrup! (:



I think I might go back for lunch/ dinner to give it another go to see if my liking for this place will increase after trying other dishes! (:

Have a good Friday and weekend! (:

The Populus

Hello (:

It's been too long since I last updated this space simply cos I've been waay too busy! So much so that sometimes all I wanna do after work is to eat a big, decadent pancake, which I did one night at The Populus. I'm not kidding when I said I managed to eat the ENTIRE pancake on my own =P I feel super good when I eat such a pancake cos 1) it tastes nice 2) I feel like I deserve it 3) I need to stop the hunger pangs but I sometimes regret a teensy bit after because I get too full! Hahaha


Shall hang in there for 2 more months before the next breather (: For now, we shall cherish the little breaks in between the madness and eat more food to stay happy and sane (:

Happy long weekend! (:

BOCA

Hello (:

My good friends and I made a trip to Boca cos we wanted to try some exotic food so we were a little disappointed when the food that we got was pretty average? I guess we had high expectations after reading a few reviews so we wanted our tastebuds to be treated to a novel and exciting experience but I guess our selection of dishes didn't allow for that to happen! Their famous egg tarts were alright though I must say that they tasted more like custard puffs compared to the usual egg tarts that we're accustomed to eating! Here're some photos of the food that we had that night:




I think my favourite dish, ironically, was the relatively nondescript pumpkin bread (featured in the first photo) cos I liked its dense texture and the light pumpkin whiff.

The great service and ambiance made up for the average-tasting food though and I think it's not a bad place to go for dinner if you want a change in cuisine and a nice place to catch up with your friends (:

Alright that's all! Happy weekend! (:

New Ubin Seafood

Hello!

I've been terrible ill-disciplined when it comes to updating this space because I honestly don't have as much time as I did in the past to sit and blog. Another reason is also cos I update my instagram account more often to commemorate how each day is spent/ the highlight of each day (I try to post everyday) so this space becomes a back-up storage space of sorts (:

Nonetheless, I think it's still good for updates on the new and yummy food that we've been trying, and this was one of them! We had dinner with our two good friends to New Ubin Seafood not too long ago and I think it can possibly rival the Jumbo experience! For the longest time, whenever I think of seafood, I always think of Jumbo Seafood Restaurant but I think New Ubin is its close rival! (:

Love the variety, love the freshness of the food, and thoroughly enjoyed the company! (: We'll definitely be back to try other dishes! (:




Happy weekend (:

Salt Tapas and Bar

Hello (:

It's almost the end of a superbly long week, and I suspect this is the first of many weeks of its kind. January has spoilt us rotten partly cos of the festive break(s) so we've to adjust and get back into the rhythm of school all over again.

Thankfully, weekends are filled with both rest and exploration of some kind - be it visiting a new place or trying something new for the first time. Last weekend, we visited Salt Tapas and Bar and we were impressed with their interesting dishes (: It was also the first time that I've eaten barramundi since my previous food poisoning incident (caused by some barramundi I suspect) and I'm super grateful that I felt alright after that (:







Really can't wait for Friday evening to come because that's when the weekend arrives and we can get to catch up on rest again (:

Have a good rest of the week!
