We had wanted to use our voucher for Eat At Taipei and so we met at Raffles City after work today. To our surprise, Eat At Taipei had been replaced by Bangkok Jam! Faintz! The voucher had indicated an outlet here… But I guessed it’s our own fault for not checking out prior to coming down 😦 Oh well, this gave us a chance to check out other places that we have yet to try though 😛

We were looking for early dinner and Strictly Pancakes was just around the corner! We arrived at 5.50pm and were the first in the queue… Within the next 10 minutes, the queue was completely filled 😮 was it really so good?
While waiting for the place to open, I used the 10 minutes to surf the web for food recommendations… It appeared that there were very extreme reviews! Seems like food and service were not so great, while some said it was very nice for the first few bites and it was probably difficult for an individual to finish 3 pancakes (medium). With so much advice from the Web, we decided to share the Garlic buttered prawns with Pancakes.
We were hunting for food at Holland Village when we spotted One-for-One Australian Beef Buffet (usual price $43.90++) that was available every Wednesday and Saturday. We had to show the waitress that we had “Liked” their Facebook page before we could start the dinner. There was a time limit of 90 min, but we only had 60 min, since the buffet ends at 10pm… yeah, it was a super late dinner for us!
We liked that there was live music indoors, but that meant that we had to sit outdoors because it was too noisy indoors. Luckily, it was quite a cooling night, so it was pretty relaxing to chill outdoors with live music in the background, and we could still engage in a decent conversation.
A wonderful Saturday and we woke up early to challenge (yet again) ourselves to Bukit Timah hill, and of course the wonderful Liu Sha Bao after that! But the highlight of the day was definitely not only the baos, but the yummy Italian food that came after the baos!
We made our way to the nearest bus stop to Greenwood Ave (one of the outlets), and low and behold, it started to rain!! And very very heavily at that! Between the few of us (and the few umbrellas we shared), we were totally drenched by the time we walked in to the rustic-feeling place…
(This post in re-written in absolute frustration at stupid WordPress app which seemed to kill off my every other post despite multiple saving. So names may not be correct since it has been a while since I ate the food… Not too sure how long I can live with it…!!)
This is probably a pretty nice place to chill out, with the darts machine in one corner and 1 huge screen for soccer fans indoors. There was supposed to be live music outdoors, but we didn’t stay late enough to hear it.
We were at this area for a book launch (very proud of Ms V’s daddy :D) and decided to all pop by for drinks and desserts.
What a crowded place on a Saturday afternoon!! Completely packed and slightly chaotic within the air-conditioned area, we had to make do with outdoor seats on a sunny afternoon…
Enjoyed the music, but it was a very noisy place with people shouting at one another over the music. Not suitable for chilling on weekends perhaps? While we find the place quite interesting, it was really too noisy for our liking, and the fans at the outdoor seating area were simply insufficient.
Happened to attend a conference at Expo today, so we planned to drop by Changi City Point to check it out.
Decided to try out this place coz hubby read that the burger is good! It was pretty crowded at 7+pm on a Friday, so reservations may be a good idea.
The restaurant is divided into a small indoor area and a bigger alfresco dining area. The tables are lined up into one long curved stretch rather than individually island-ed, and diners sit on both sides of the long table, very much like in a canteen. This gives the diners a very communal friendly ambience and everyone feels like we could be friends instantly!
It’s a wonderful day and I finally met up with The Fabulous Baker Boy!!
Have been reading and seeing sooo many yummy photos on Instagram about TFBB so I have to try it out. So on this day, on a rainy Thursday afternoon, after running around finishing final errands for our upcoming Taipei trip, I finally found TFBB at the foothill of Fort Canning Park!
It’s really located in a very obscure corner of the park (find your way to Liang Court and TFBB is just opposite in the park, though you need to find the entrance to walk in to the park in the first place!) and the decor is really unpretentious and simple. It’s alfresco dining with lots of fans around to blow the heat away. But what caught my eyes were the rows of yummilicious cakes that were displayed on the cake shelves!
