Signature Bak Kuk Teh
In the area to meet friends and decided to check out the food options along this stretch of road (which has changed a fair bit due to the construction of Downtown Line, and sadly, our favourite Liu Sha Bao is GONE!!).
The bak kut teh signboard caught our attention and we decided to give it a go, despite the lack of crowd.
The interior was simple, and kind of reminded us of the Malaysian-styled kopi tiams which we saw in Malacca and Penang – simple in ambience but winning customers over through good food. Would this BKT shop give us the same experience?
Here for dinner after a stroll from office… I wanted to jog, but old le… 😦
We walked from Botanic Garden MRT along Bukit Timah Road and passed by our usual hunt in Cluny Court, and then a changed in sign made us looked up. This used to be Burger Shack, but has now revamped itself into Little Hiro, a Hawaiian-Japanese BBQ & Grill eatery. The owner is the son of the owner of Island Creamery, and Little Hiro was the result of his creative juices after attending a wedding in Hawaii which ended with a Hawaiian-style BBQ. Little Hiro is a tribute to the groom’s father and chef at the BBQ (whose name is Hiro).
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…

Third season already!
We saw an episode of 超级小吃赞 3 (Snack Attack 3) on Channel U a few weeks ago recommending chocolate buns, coffee buns and custard buns.
So we came here after our leisurely stroll at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve 🙂 on this bright Sunday morning!
We decided to go healthy today and came to Miao Yi Vegetarian Restaurant.. wow, haven’t been here since JC days and it’s still going on strong!
Claypot Tofu with Assortment
Claypot Tofu with Assortment ($10): The tofu was very smooth! But the fried skin tasted a tad sour-ish. The gravy had a hint of herbal taste, quite delicious! Assortment refers to the peas, mushrooms, yam bits, carrots and wong bok. Continue reading
No service charge, No GST, No tap water
It was a quiet Monday evening and we were the only diners indoors. Got a couple of Caucasians outdoors, so we practically had the entire place to ourselves.
Western, Thai and Indian cuisines are served here, so we ended up ordering a beef Phad Thai, Butter Chicken, Palak Paneer and some garlic naans. There was a beer promotion, so we ordered a glass of Kronenbourg 1664 to share (mineral water costs $1 nett per bottle).

A simple place for meals
It’s a Monday evening and I had just finished a walk/jog from workplace to Botanic Gardens, and met hubby at Botanic Gardens for a meal at Cluny Court just beside Botanic Gardens.
Incidentally, Cluny Court is a 2-storey old building located just next to Botanic Gardens MRT, the French Embassy, Serene Centre, and across the road from Adam Rd Hawker Centre. This beautiful building houses a variety of shops, including Cold Storage, da Paolo Gastronomia, Brill, Bar Bar Black Sheep, Simply Bread, and of course relish by Wildrocket!
