Tanjong Pagar

Tanjong Pagar was a historic centre for Singapore's Chinese community. It is now a cosmopolitan area within walking distance of the CDB with a wide range of old and new shops. It is a good place for a lunch time meal with office workers, a post work hangout area for pubs and fine dining and a pleasant place to explore cafes and eclectic shops on a lazy weekend afternoon.

My Japan trip from a few months back..

I chomped my way through Osaka and Kyoto...


Cold Ramen with Sesame sauce. Very Chinese

One Michelin (Diamaru Osaka)

This was good but too expensive for what we ate… I won't go back there for that price.

Crab Restaurant

We had 8 courses of crab including crab sake below!

Seafood at Nishiki Market (Kyoto)

Seafood in Japan is ultra fresh. After that I will never view sushi and sashimi the same way again...

Kikunoi (3 michelin, Gion, Kyoto)

This was the pinnacle of my trip. There is a reason why this place is 3 michelin. the food, presentation, ambiance and service is impeccable. The lunch is not just a meal but an unforgettable experience.
My pictures just cannot do justice to the meal...

Dessert cafe (Gion, Kyoto)

Beef restaurant (near Nishiki Market)

I am deeply saddened that I don't have the address of this place and can't find it on the internet. The food was so affordable for such delicious beef. It was our last dinner in Kyoto and I was delighted to have ended it with such a good meal.

Sweety moments is no longer there!!

I always said sweety moments won't last!!

I was right. There is another shop in it's place that I have to check out.

Thyme and Parsley

I have no pictures of this meal as it was a sudden decision to try the place.

The food is not fancy but it is delicious, well seasoned and generous.

Which is a big plus for Singapore where there are full of fancy looking places that cannot even season their food properly.

I had a smoked duck salad, sirloin steak with potatoes and berry pannacotta for $38. If that is not value for good well seasoned food, I don't know what is.

The steak was grilled very nicely.

Even my mother who is picky with food (but who is also a very good cook in my view) was satisfied.

The set lunch with the steak is apparently $25. If I worked closer to this place, I would frequent it more often for lunch.

Meii Sushi has moved to International Plaza

Lil Papa's Wieners - closed and moved

Sorry that I haven't done entries for so long… But my entire family has been infected by BABY SUPER VIRUSES… so more important things had to take priority.

Back to this place…

I'm sure the person who set this up, choose the name to make people do a double take…

But anyway, this hotdog place has opened in the area in place of Meii sushi.

The place isn't really direct competition for the other hotdog joint in the area- Purple Mustard

This place is distinguishes itself as a beer and hotdog place.

The hotdogs aren't bad but I like Purple Mustard better for hotdogs alone.

I choose the hotdog with cheese, onions and bacon.

As you can see from the picture, the bacon isn't crispy enough. But it's not a bad hotdog and the combi comes with lemonade.

In Place of Meii Sushi

In Place of Meii Sushi, it is rumored that there will be a take away shop…

Wednesday, May 23, 2012


This great little spot is situated in Everton Park HDB.

I had a chat with one of the owners who was very friendly and gave me a lot of information about their coffee.
It should open at 730 instead of 830 on weekdays to attract people on the way to work.
I only wish I had this place right below my block so I could have take away coffee every morning.
