Quarter to Three @Tanjong Pagar

After our not-too-satisfying dim sum dinner, we decided to go look for some coffee… As we walked past many, many Korean restaurants, we suddenly spotted a cafe! There were still a couple of tables available, so we quickly went in.

We shared a Tiramisu in a Jar ($9.80 nett) and an Iced Latte ($6.40). The Tiramisu was definitely alcoholic 😛 Full of flavours and not overly sweet, we were happy with our dessert! The iced latte was a strong with a hint of acidity, not bad at all 🙂

With free WiFi and a rather relaxed atmosphere, this was a rather lovely place to chill out for a couple of hours 🙂

Luxe Singapore @Keong Siak Road

I was around this area waiting for hubby, and was looking around for dinner places. There were actually many food choices around this area, and I decided on Luxe because… The signage was appealing and the interior looked very welcoming!

Luxe originates from Sydney, Australia and this is their first overseas restaurant-bar, serving contemporary Australian cuisine with a Southeast Asian twist.

So we ordered:

  • Burrata with Cabbage Relish and Grilled Broccoli ($16+GST): This was surprising light and blended very well with the relish.
  • Grilled Barramundi with Rojak Flower Butter Sauce ($36+): We totally loved this fish! It might be a little low in the quantity, but definitely up the scales in terms of quality! The skin was oh-so-crispy! The fish was very fresh and cooked to perfection, and the sauce complemented it really well. An excellent recommendation by the staff!
  • Luxe Burger with Grass-fed Beef, Cheese, House-made pickles, Lettuce and Fries (replaced fries with salad, $28+): Charcoal bun was used and it kind of gave an interesting feel to the burger concept. The patty was juicy and hubby enjoyed it very much!
  • Freshly Cold-pressed Green Apple Juice ($6+): Surprisingly sweet, it was quite refreshing.

This was quite a nice place to chill out and we had a lovely time here 🙂

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 😛

The Lokal @Neil Road

Romantic decor

Romantic decor

Yet another late afternoon meeting in this area, so off to The Lokal we went! Ms J was visiting here on a super regular basis previously, so we figured that the food must be pretty good 🙂

This place is right at the corner of a small side road so its easy to miss. Once inside, the front part of the restaurant is a bar and the rear is the dining section. There is soft lighting and smooth music to accompany the diners to give a very romantic feel to the whole place.

While waiting for hubby to arrive, I had a freshly squeezed yummilicious Pink Grapefruit ($6++)!

It was rather difficult to catch the attention of the staff though, as I was seated in a corner on the sofa and the place was basically empty at 6.15pm.

Sakari Sushi Restaurant @Tanjong Pagar

Chef Paul-san with fresh sushi

It was our long-awaited Omakase dinner at Sakari!

Located at Orchid Hotel (where the famous Teppei and its infamous queue was also located), we had previously came here once for omakase dinner, also organized by Ms J. This time however, we had specially requested for pitan tofu, with the tofu homemade by Chef Paul-san, so we were totally looking forward to it!

We had also requested for the $120 omakase instead of the $100 one, so we were looking forward to even better food this time round 🙂 Just a disclaimer that since J was a super regular customer, we might have gotten a discount for the omakase. Also, J said that there is always something new that she has yet to try whenever she comes here (and it appears to be at least once a week), each omakase meal is different.

Cafe Hopping @Everton Park

So I took a one-day leave and ventured all the way to the East for Sitex 2014. Nothing much to see, but I managed to buy a pair of Timberlands from Timberlands Outlet sale in another hall. Haha…

So while waiting for wifey to end work, I travelled all the way from the East to Everton Park. This area has grown to include many of the artisan cafes that Singaporeans flock to. And with The Pinnacle@Duxton just opposite the road, you can be sure that there’s bound to be huge patronage. But most of them closes quite early, around 6-7pm so it was quite a challenge for us to try them out, since we stopped work at 6pm.

Les Bouchons @Ann Siang Road

Les Bouchons front

Les Bouchons front

Hubby had a craving for steak and he had been reading rave reviews on Les Bouchons, so off we went to Ann Siang Road (of course we had to make reservations first because apparently this is a very popular place)!

Les Bouchons was actually opposite Lolla (which we went with G and friend the last time), and reviews were full of praise on the steak-frites (steak and fries). This chain of French restaurants started in 1998 and there are now 5 of them along Club Street, each serving a slightly different clientele with their different offerings, and some more in Robertson Quay.

The place is quite small, with only 6 tables or so inside and a couple more alfresco tables. Interior deco has an European-like with heavy chairs, wooden tables and oil paintings. Lighting was not excessively bright but rather soothing and comfy to make dining a cozy affair.

[closed] ReStore @Tanjong Pagar

Note: ReStore has ceased operations at this location.

A cafe and a furniture shop!

A cafe and a furniture shop!

We were milling around the area and discovered a still-open cafe nearby! At first glance, ReStore looked more like a furniture shop than cafe 🙂 Turned out that they do serve waffles, coffee and tea, as well as restored furniture!

This little space was filled with tables and chairs of various sizes and styles, with an additional row of chairs hanging by the walls. Seemed slightly cluttered and a little squeezy, and I didn’t feel particularly safe sitting under the chairs, but it was quite empty when we reached, so we managed to find a nice spot to chill. It was a Berry Good Waffles ($9.80), Skinny Latte ($5) and Straits Chai Tea ($5) for us 🙂

Gyoza King @Tanjong Pagar

Big banners

Big banners

We wanted to try our luck at Teppei because I was attending a course nearby but the queue was incredible! And the place is ridiculously small, and with a waiting list of at least 4 months (and the impossibility of getting through the phone once the reservation starts), I am guessing it will probably be in our next life that we get to dine at Teppei. … provided there’s a Teppei in our next life, that is…

So we looked around the corner and here is Gyoza King! The big banners are really very inviting and since there is no queue, we decided this would be a gyoza night!

This is one of the 5 Ramen Keisuke Tokyo outlets, the others being:

  • Ramen Keisuke, Tonkotsu King at Orchid Hotel,
  • Ramen Keisuke, Tori King at Amara Hotel,
  • Ramen Keisuke, Tonkotsu King at Four Seasons at Bugis Village,
  • Ramen Dining Keisuke Tokyo at Suntec City Mall.

Drury Lane Cafe @Tanjong Pagar

Relaxing time

Relaxing time

Hubby was at a seminar today and had plenty of time to spare before meeting me for dinner. He had initially wanted to go to Department of Caffeine but unfortunately, it was closed 😦

He searched high and low for a cafe that didn’t close by 5pm, and finally found Drury Lane Cafe to chill out while waiting for me to knock off.
