A new pizza joint has appeared in Upper Thomson after Crust Pizza closed. Hubby was most excited to try out this place!
- Rosticciana ($28 nett): This was a rather small rack of oven-roasted, herb-marinated baby back ribs (5 ribs), served with leafy salad and wedges. The wedges were not bad. While the baby ribs were quite tender with a sweet glaze, there was a rather overpowering pork smell that made this dish less than satisfactory.
- Salmone ($19 for 9 inches): Fresh salmon, caramelised onions & capers as toppings, we enjoyed the thin-crust pizza very much!
I suspect we will be back here again to try out the rest of the pizza flavours 🙂
We 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?
Our friend offered to drive us somewhere ulu for dinner, and we figured that the Handlebar was definitely located at an ulu enough place, and almost inaccessible at night without a ride. We did walk to this place during broad daylight before, back when Bottle Tree Village was still around, and it was a fair bit of walk! So much easier with a car 😀
We were seated by one of the benches, and it was fortunate that we had called in advance to make reservations, for it was full house tonight!
- Blossom Onions ($12++): Crispy and sweet, this was an very enjoyable starter for sharing.
- Cocaine Wings ($14++): We opted for 3 mild and 3 medium heat levels. Depending on your taste buds, mild was too hot for hubby, medium was very acceptable to our friend, and I thought that medium heat had a lingering spicy aftertaste that lasted quite a while.
- Righteous Ribs ($28++): The meat was tender, and potatoes were very nice! The side salad was a welcome green for our overly carnivorous meal.
- Slap Yo Momma Pork Chop ($26++): We opted for a mix of both fried and grilled bone-in pork loin. The fried version was really good, but inside the crispy surface lay a very thick and juicy pork loin. The grilled version was a tad too dry, except for the fatty parts.
We liked the environment, and it was very relaxing to chill here. Water was available freely.

- Hrs: 5pm – 1am (Tue-Thu), 5pm – 2am (Fri), 3pm – 2am (Sat), 3pm – 1am (Sun)
Teddy’s US Beef Burger
BBQ Baby Back Ribs
Conveniently located just next to Exit H of Outram MRT station, hubby wanted to try out this place because of the waffles, but we got distracted by other stuff instead 😛
(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.

Daddy read about this zichar stall in the newspapers and thought the food looked pretty good! Some of his friends also said that the food was not bad, so off we went to try!
Located just a few blocks opposite Ang Mo Kio MRT Station and the Town Garden, Hai Zhong Bao Live Seafood occupies the corner stall of this kopitiam at the void deck of Blk 422. Like many kopitiams in Singapore, the environment is homely, lively and a little noisy at times, especially when a soccer match is going on. 🙂
