Word Cafe @Springleaf

2016-11-20 12.31.18We have been reading quite good reviews about Word Cafe, a Muslim-owned cafe, and especially it’s rainbow bagel, so we decided to check it out while strolling from our last makan place.

It was quite easy to miss this place because of the on-going Thomson-East Coast Line MRT Springleaf Station site construction.

The exterior looked like a red container building, and the interior was decorated with wooden boxes, paintings of crates, and the tables had pipes for legs. We liked the industrial vibe here!

Bincho @Hua Bee

2016-11-05-14-21-26

We caught up with JY at Bincho today!

We got lost trying to figure out how to reach this place because the shop front was actually Hua Bee Restaurant, a mee pok stall (This coffee shop was the set for Eric Khoo’s 1995 movie, Mee Pok Man.), heh *confused*

We actually passed by this place when we went for Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail but didn’t went in to try.

It was fairly quiet during lunch time on a Saturday, and I decided on the Wagyu Roast Beef Don set, while hubby could not resist ordering Whole Chicken Leg and Cheese Curry Katsu set. Each set comes with appetizers, salad, pickles, karaage, soup and dessert.

How should we describe this?

We liked every single item and wiped everything clean! The meats were cooked to perfection, and there was always something magical about egg yolk mixing with beef slices and rice…. YUMS! There was a choice of mochi or sesame ice cream for dessert, which worked well for me, haha 😛

​老北京四牌楼涮肉百年老店 Lao Beijing Si Pai Lou Hotpot Restaurant @ 东四 Dongsi, Beijing

2016-10-27-11-55-35Our last meal in Beijing was 涮肉 (typically mutton shabu shabu), and we wanted to try the 老北京铜锅 which is a traditional bronze hotpot with charcoal inside and a trench of water at the rim for shabu-ing the meat.

We found one near our hotel that looked quite traditional (because it’s housed in an old traditionally-looking building which we later realized was what the name of the restaurant 四牌楼 referred to) and had a few customers and has the words 百年老店 (which meant that it was a time-tested brand and literally around for 100 years), so we figured it should not be too bad.

Of course, there were also many restaurants that claimed to be 百年老店 or 老字号 as we had found out in this trip, haha.

四季民福 Siji Minfu @Dongcheng District, Beijing

2016-10-26-22-52-46四季民福 Siji Minfu was another highly recommended place to go to for Peking Duck, and there was a relatively new outlet near the East Exit of 故宫博物院 The Palace Museum where one could savour the majestic beauty of the palace while munching on the delectable ducks (if you can get a seat by the window, that is).

It was almost 3pm when we left 故宫博物院 The Palace Museum (6 hours of walking and we still couldn’t finish all the exhibits), and we were starving!

We still had to queue despite the odd hours, but there were snacks available while we waited, so it was not too bad.

​云海肴亭云幸福馆 Yun Hai Yao @Haidian District, Beijing

2016-10-25-14-03-42After a delightful morning at 颐和园 Summer Palace, we exited through it’s East Exit and took a short stroll to a nearby Yunnan restaurant for a late lunch.

This is a restaurant chain specialising in Yunnan cuisine with 18 outlets over China (mostly in Beijing).

This year happened to be the restaurant’s 7th anniversary, so we opted for the Anniversary Set at ¥177 (usual price ¥210), which consisted of 黑松露牛肝菌焖牛蛙 Braised Bull Frog with Bolete and Black Truffle, 原味汽锅鸡 Steam Pot Chicken, 鸡丝凉米线 Cold Rice Noodles with Shredded Chicken, 盖菜炒山药 Sauteéd Leaf Mustard with Chinese Yam.

​北京大董烤鸭店 Beijing Da Dong Roast Duck @Dongcheng District, Beijing

2016-10-24-13-16-16Peking duck is one of the must-try when one is in Beijing. With prices ranging from relatively cheap ¥100+ per bird to exorbitant (¥888 for roast duck coated in real gold), we are really spoilt for choice!

After much Googling and getting recommendations from friends, we decided to narrow down to 大董烤鸭 Da Dong and 四季民福 Sijiminfu.

Our first duck stop was at 大董烤鸭 Da Dong, for the main shop was quite near our hotel.

We reached the restaurant around 12.40pm and did not have to wait too long for a table.

This was a huge place and decorated beautifully, with menu thicker than my Mathematics textbooks 😮 The prices were also rather steep, but this restaurant has won multiple awards before too.

We decided to stick to basics and ordered Half a Duck (¥144 ~S$30) with Duck Condiments (¥12/person).

Lokkee @Plaza Singapura

2016-10-10-13-50-51There was a special 25% discount off Lokkee’s ala-carte menu today, special thanks to Nathan Hartono and his excellent performance in Sing! China.

Lokkee is TungLok Group’s latest F&B venture offering global Chinese cuisine.

The restaurant is a witty and cheeky play on favourite Chinese recipes which have been given a unique tweak to include a dash of Western influence.

The interior of the restaurant is very contemporary but the tables were too close to each other and waiters had a hard time maneuvering their way.

Arteastiq Boutique Tea House @Plaza Singapura

2016-09-09-08-43-46We were in town today and after checking out the whole of Plaza Singapore, the comfortable plush seats here at Arteastiq called out to us!

We decided to try out the weekday set lunches here (available from 11am to 1.30pm) which consists of a main and a specialty tea (or coffee) from $16++ onwards.

We got ourselves The Prince of Monte Carlo ($25++) and Golden Sands Big Breakfast ($24++). For drinks, it was Honey Lavender Tea and Latte.

So what exactly was Prince of Monte Carlo?

PeraMakan @Keppel Club

2016-09-05-12-49-45Keppel Club certainly brought back much memories for us 🙂

From VivoCity, we took a 30-minute stroll into Keppel Club… It was a fairly long walk in!

Since we had already tried Peony Jade a couple of times before, we wanted to check out PeraMakan this time.

Being a Monday, it was a really quiet day, and we had seats by the windows.

We enjoyed each dish, and like that the flavours were very balanced, without being overly spicy or sweet. We also liked the crackers that was served as appetiser.
