What sweet dreams are made of. Busy yet fulfilling Monday!
This is surprisingly delicious! Sate Kambing Betawi from Sama Sama by Tik Tok in Jewel - traditionally grilled Jakarta style baby lamb skewers which is not at all gamy from its overnight marination. Even the usual non-lamb eaters enjoyed this!
Don’t chicken out. The signature Grilled Chicken at UYKD tasted like char siew, except it’s chicken. Perhaps we held too high hopes for this namesake dish, but it had not actually transported us to foodie nirvana. Still a satisfying option, that's for sure.
Spent half a day at Jewel today and it has been all good fun. More on our insta stories! After our Indonesian meal, we had the customary @BOPGelato, almost being to the point of boring by having our customary flavours - hazelnut and white chrysanthemum, with the aromatic thyme cone no less.
Other than Afuri ramen in Funan, there’s also @GodmamaSG. This brand new Peranakan concept serves hearty Peranakan fare at accessible prices. This Egg Skin Popiah is prepared from co-owner Christina Keilthy’s recipe that was handed down by her Godmother, and is served with chilli if you need that additional punch.
Our dining companions were very hungry so we had this two huge platter, for breakfast! Happy Sunday all, it’s real sunny today!
Finally, we had a glimpse of the brand new @RafflesHotelSingapore! Checked out the two weeks old Raffles Afternoon Tea concept at The Grand Lobby this afternoon, a three-tier affair along with scones, a choice of tea and optional @Champagne_Billecart_Salmon to go along. It’s quality over quantity, and suffice to say, this is definitely one of the best afternoon tea experiences in Singapore for us so far. Great catch up session too! The Raffles Afternoon Tea is available daily from 12pm to 6pm at $68++ per person.
We saw a queue and joined. The prata is surprisingly good and crispy, along with the delicious fish curry. This is from the coffee shop in Bishan Street 22, but there are other outlets in Hougang and Serangoon North as well. A not so healthy way to start the morning, but no regrets!
Concluding the work week with this delicious Braised Flat Noodles with Pork Collar from the One-Michelin starred Jiang-Nan Chun! This noodle is served with the restaurant’s signature char siew, and is part of the specially curated six-course Summer Menu (available for lunch and dinner) which runs till 31 August 2019. TGIF!
Can’t resist some gyoza and chicken karaage! Have you tried Afuri at Funan yet?
As Chef Eric puts it, this is like the taste of first love. Popped by @MadAboutSucre after a meal nearby because we were deprived of desserts, and this San Domingue has the qualities of first love. A somewhat bitter experience, a little sweet in the heart, one which you thought you have left it behind but it still lingers. This brought us back memories when we first tried it 4.5 years ago when the patisserie just opened. Time flies!
Another new restaurant opens at Bukit Pasoh! @Mai_By_Marusaya specialises in dishes incorporating dashi with affordable set lunches like its shabu-shabu hotpot from $29++ onwards.
Sukiyaki don for $13.90? A mini mountain of tender beef, where we drizzled the accompanying onsen egg all over the rice for the best flavour. This is probably one of our favourite Keisuke concept so far, located right beside Tanjong Pagar Plaza. Good morning!
Can’t resist a good belly! This Braised Sea Cucumber with Grandma’s Braised Pork Belly is served in a claypot, one of the new highlights at the revamped Crystal Jade Palace.
Mee Kia or Mee Pok? Was thinking between the two, though the staff recommended Mee Kia to go along with our fish maw soup. The noodles is actually quite delicious!
