I was attending a conference in Grand Corpthorne Waterfront Hotel and so we ended up in Great World City for dinner!
We were just walking around and sighted Pepper Steakhouse which looked promising (plus there is a One-For-One starters promotion… 🙂 hehe).
I wanted to order a lamb dish but they ran out of lamb. So we ordered:
- Crispy Blue Swimmer Crab Cake ($12) – The crab cake was done perfectly with the outer crush crispy and the patty juicy.
- Australian Grass-Fed Beef Carpaccio ($10) – The beef slices were so thinly cut and marinated with vinegar and olive oil to give a delectable crunch when you bite it in with the cheese flakes and arugula. Very nice indeed!
- Australian Grass-Fed Angus Tenderloin ($36) – The beef was prepared medium-rared but you don’t get the blood oozing all out. Paired with the mushroom sauce and we got a satisfying piece of meat. The steak-cut fries were free-flowed but we could hardly finish the first helping. 🙂
- Caramelized Kurobuta Pork Chop ($28) – The pork chop was just normal.

After so long, we finally tried it!!
While we were still dating, my then-boyfriend said that he wanted to bring me to this authentic Italian restaurant, Pontini. Boyfriend became hubby for 6 years… And today, we finally had the chance to go 😀
Pontini has undergone several changes since those days but it remains one of the top Italian restaurants around. The decor was inviting and full of warmth with tables far apart enough to not give a congested environment. The lighting was soothing and provided a cosy atmosphere for casual conversations among diners.
Wonderful after-dinner delights!
We ended our evening with a Super Light Cheese Chiffon Cake ($7, inclusive of GST), a Cafe Latte ($5.50) and a Match Latte ($6), at this little cafe by the corner.
The cake was really light, with the very addictive fresh cream…!! Made us feel like wanting more 🙂
I also loved the slightly bitter, and not so milky matcha latte 😀 It had a hint of toasted seaweed, and was really quite yummylicious without being too filling.
The rather aromatic cafe latte was quite strong and acidic, and hubby considered this a better-than-average brew.

Gyu Suji Omu Rice
We were wandering within Liang Court and found Pecori Japanese Egg Restaurant rather appealing, with the huge omu rice menu!
The staff offered us samples of the cream, curry and mentai sauces so that we knew what we might be getting ourselves into 😛 Finally, we decided on a Gyu Suji Omu Rice ($16.80, inclusive of GST) and a Roast Demi Omu Rice ($15.80).
Roast Demi Omu Rice
The tomato rice with the slightly undercooked omelette was quite delicious! The beef stew chunks had looked quite tough, but was much softer than it looked. The beef pieces were quite fatty though, so the meat with fats was quite a good combination for hubby, but I was not such a fan. The roast demi omu rice was 3 deep fried items – prawn, mashed potato, and fish fillet. Eaten while still hot, they were delicious!
For this price, we also had free flow salad (+$2 during lunch), soup and coffee/tea. Really quite value-for-money! The salad bar was quite simple, with lettuce, seaweed, corn, shredded cabbage and spaghetti, and today’s soup was seaweed soup. The salad was a good complement to the omu rice, and we enjoyed the meal!
Note: The shop accepts cash only.

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!
