Chope had a 1-for-1 deal, and so we ended up here for dinner 🙂
Seated at the counter, we had a great view of the chefs in action. We wanted to try so many things, but our waistlines had been expanding… *ouch*
Anyway, we still ate a lot, haha 😛
- Tuna Tartare ($20++): This was rather addictive, with well balanced flavours and very fresh tuna. The papadum was very crispy and went well with the tuna.
- Soft Shell Crab ($20++): We liked the crunchy batter, but the saltiness overpowered the Thai green curry flavour.
- Assam pork ribs ($22++): The pork ribs were very tender and delicious!
- Tom yum cereal salmon ($22++): Our favourite item, the salmon was oven-baked to perfection, almost melting in our mouths. Gosh.. salivating just thinking about it 😀
- 10° vermicelli ($2++): This was quite refreshing, not bad at all.

There was a special 25% discount off Lokkee’s ala-carte menu today, special thanks to Nathan Hartono and his excellent performance in Sing! China.
Lokkee is TungLok Group’s latest F&B venture offering global Chinese cuisine.
The restaurant is a witty and cheeky play on favourite Chinese recipes which have been given a unique tweak to include a dash of Western influence.
The interior of the restaurant is very contemporary but the tables were too close to each other and waiters had a hard time maneuvering their way.
It’s Ms. V’s last day in Melbourne and she had a plane to catch at noon so we entrusted the decision of her final breakfast to her!
She decided that we should try out Grain Store which was quite near Southern Cross Station, where she would be taking the SkyBus to the airport.
Apparently, many people who were also going to the airport thought that coming here was a good idea too, for there were many customers with pieces of luggage!
After seated comfortably in the beautifully-decorated cafe, we combed through the menu and ordered:
We were running out of ideas on a nice Sunday afternoon. So we decided to head north this time, and found ourselves queuing at Senjyu 千寿 because it looks new. 😛
At 2+ in the afternoon, the Sashimi Maki and Kanikyu were already sold out (we could place our orders but the waitress came by to tell us that they were sold out), while the Yari Ika was unavailable when we tried to order, which was quite a pity since they looked pretty delicious on the menu.
[UPDATE: Batterworks has ceased operation at Everton Park wef 18 Oct 2015]
Super loooong weekend is here, and we went on a staycation in our sunny island amidst all the haze!
This was our first stop of the day and we were the first customers at Batterworks! We started our day with:
We went shopping with Ms JJ and decided to have some healthy dinner with beauty benefits 🙂 After all, somebody is getting married soon!
Healthy and Beauty Hot Pot served in Special Chicken and Collagen Stock
Hot Tofu served with 3 kinds of salt
Thinly sliced Kurobuta Pork Shabu Shabu Salad
Salmon and Avocado Carpaccio with Hyaluronic Acid Jelly
Home-made rich Soymilk Pudding
Wifey left office rather late today and met me at Upper Thomson in the hope of having more food options in the late hours. We found that La Petite was rather quiet and empty tonight and since we had a pretty good experience the first time we tried it, we decided to give it another go!
La Petite Cuisine has 2 branches with the other one being at Serene Centre (strangely we walked past the Serene Centre branch twice last year and it looked like it’s closed down). They served quite affordable French cuisine and do not charge service charge and GST. Decor and ambiance is homely with red-white checkered table cloth, French paintings on the walls, and free-flow of self-service water. Menu is a simple piece of paper and you need to order and pay at the counter before food is served to you. There are indoor seats (6 tables) and alfresco seats along the walkway just outside the restaurant.
The month is ending and so is our Ichiban Rewards Card, so we are here at nex to spend it away at Kabe no Ana!
This Japanese pasta and pizza restaurant is part of the RE&S Group of restaurants and this outlet at nex is part of its Japanese Food Street called Shokutsu 10. The restaurants/cafes here in the food street are Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery, Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery Café, Kabe no Ana Japanese Pasta, Tontei Pork Restaurant, Shimbashi Soba, Ichiban Boshi Japanese Restaurant, Men-Ichi Japanese Ramen, Yaki Yaki Bo Teppanyaki Restaurant, and Kuriya Japanese Fresh Fish Market. We often had a hard time deciding which one to try.
Today we let the complimentary items in our Ichiban Rewards Card decide and those on offer at Kabe no Ana looked more pleasing to us at this moment. 🙂

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…
