Since we were seldom in this area, we decided to have our lunch here too… And of the many places that G suggested, we thought that Zaffron Kitchen looked pretty interesting.
We ordered a Zaffron Tandoori Platter ($39.50) and Garlic Naan ($4.50) to share… Wanted to try the Masala Tea, but had no idea how to enter it using the tablet menu… Seemed like it was not available.
It was a rather slow wait of close to 25 minutes for our food to arrive… We were hopeful that the food was worth the wait.
We were not disappointed!
The chicken items were tender and not at all dry. The lamb was just mildly gamey, and the fish was tender. The garlic naan was quite fragrant. We were happy with our lunch 🙂

Cosy after dinner set
Since we were rarely in this region, so we thought of searching for a resting place after my disappointing dinner, and hubby was attracted by this little sign board that said “We used Yahava coffee beans here” and suddenly, I found myself in Baker’s Well 😛
Ordered a Flat White with Carrot Cake Set ($9.10, note the set is cake with Americano for $7.50 and top up the difference for upgrading of drink), and a Hot Lemongrass Drink ($3.20).
Oooh! The lemongrass drink was very fragrant! I think they overdid the sugar though, because it reminded me of sugarcane drink 😮 The coffee was aromatic but quite acidic.. A good complement to the cake.
This has gotta be the nicest version of carrot cake that I have ever tried; not overly sweet or moist, and is more dense than other versions. I loved the nutty-ness, and the cake was topped with 4 huge walnuts! Now I just want to try the rest of the cakes…
After a really dissatisfying dinner, we decided to stroll around to make some space for another meal :p
Mongkok Dim Sum caught our attention with steam bellowing out within their glass windows.
Dim sum!! And so we made the decision to cross the road :p
I was in the east to visit a colleague, and so hubby decided to come over to the east for dinner 🙂 While I was having a blast at Ms L’s place, hubby endured a 1.5 hours bus ride 😮
Luckily, there was a cafe nearby, so we took a quick walk over to Penny University!
This place was rather popular when the cafe culture started in Singapore a while ago, but we never got around to come here. Simply because it’s in the East and we are very North people. Haha…
A very simple place with smooth lighting, and soft music. One thing good here is that there are newspapers and magazines lying around which also means that they expect you to nua here… 🙂
