Gemmills @Amoy Street

2016-05-04 18.12.52We popped over next door to Gemmills for some drinks after our delicious burger at Burger Joint.

Well, we had initially wanted to have drinks only, but plans are always subject to changes 🙂

  • The Duck Rillette ($10 nett) was like a paté, which reminded us a little of tuna mayo, but with a much more intense flavour. It went very well with the bread, and the crunchy pickles was refreshingly sour.
  • The Quiche ($8) was pretty standard in our opinion, quite nice but without the wow factor.
  • 2016-05-04 18.06.37Hubby enjoyed his Flat White ($4), which was strong and acidic.
  • Unfortunately, I felt that the Aurora’s Lemon & Ginger Tea ($4) was a bit weak, and I could barely taste any hint of lemon.

Iced water is available for free, and the service was friendly and pleasant. There was no free WiFi though.

We did enjoy just lounging around, enjoying the music and food. What a lovely way to end our mid-week!

Carpenter and Cook Jr @Upper Thomson

Having only just a coffee at Whale & Cloud is definitely not enough, so we venture on to find breakfast!

Carpenter and Cook (in Lorong Kilat) opened a new takeaway outlet in Jasmine Road and they named it Carpenter and Cook Jr. The website says no seating here, but there are still some counter seats inside and a couple of alfresco chairs if you want to just laze around and watch the world pass-by…

Besides selling freshly home-made baked goods and confectionery, they also sell curated vintage furniture, home decor, as well as provide dessert tables, styling services, vintage props and decor for weddings, parties, photo-shoots and more!

This interesting place was setup by 3 friends, a Carpenter (Phoebe who picks out beautiful vintage pieces), a Cook (Shenn who trained at the prestigious Cordon Bleu in London) and a And (Eunice who likes to dabble in a bit of everything). 🙂
