Me thinks that this is the year of the come backs … Guess who’s back too?

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore on August 17, 2012 at 07:33

2 come-back posts in the row with more to come!!! Its really nice to see our the chefs that we like come back from either retirement or from setbacks!

For those of us who have missed Pips and Charcoal Grill and Chef Simon who helms the grill there since they closed in the earlier part of 2012, there is some good news to share! They are back!!!

With a new name and a new place, the sambal chill chicken chop and the sirloin steaks are back! Are they as good as they used to be, well yupz in fact I feel that things have improved as they now have a much bigger variety of food available. In addition to the grill menu that they are known for, they have now gotten a bigger menu that includes desserts too!

The only gripe that I have about the new location is the same one I had in their previous one, I’m so not liking the lack of parking spaces around!

There’s what we had that day!

The classic sambal hot wings which were the hot hot hot fav! So good that we almost forgot to take its photo before we attacked it!

The grill salmon … one of the better ones we had in ages … Don’t you hate salmon that over cooked and dry? I’m so glad that the salmon that day was grilled to perfection with a plump pink centre that was moist! Yummy!

Who could forget the chicken chop and sirloin steaks? They were just like we remembered!


Remembered what I said about dessert in the beginning of the post. Pls don’t forget to leave some space for the desserts here. We had the Bobo Hitam that is served in a coconut with ice-cream topped wif durian puree and served with coconut juice in test tubes …

Brasserie Les Saveurs @ St Regis‏

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore on May 12, 2012 at 23:38

Dinner with the folks is one of the times where we really have time to catch up and connect with each other. These are times that I have grown to enjoy as I mature. I used to have 101 reasons to excuse myself from such dinners haha.

An amuse-bouche of chilled tomato soup and our basket of freshly baked breads.


For starters dad and I had Foie Gras Terrine with roasted figs and balsamic vinegar.

Mom had the Salade aux Endives, Moutarde a l accienne. Chicory salad, roasted walnut, lardons, emmental and blue cheese and mustard dressing. I’m not a salad person so I didn’t try it but mom loved everything but the taste of the blue cheese.

My aunt had the Soupe de Tomates Roties Epicee. Spicy roasted tomato soup, olives and tomato tartar with basil. Love the way the soup is presented in an empty bowl and poured infront of us …

Dad and I had the Filet de Boeuf translated as Roasted beef tenderloin, polenta sticks, sucrine salad, tomatoes and olives, red wine jus. It was served medium rare and we enjoyed the tender beef.

Mom and aunt were the fish people and so they settled on the Vivaveau en Piperade or simply put Oven-baked red snapper, confit of capsicum, parma ham and herb coulis

Time for desserts, my fav time of the meal if you could have guessed by now, dad and I had the Chocolat, Trio of chocolate mousse with coffee ice-cream pepper anglaise sauce

Mom and aunt had the Pomme verte(deconstructed apple pie), Slow-baked apple, calvados custard cream and green apple sorbet

Some yummy petits fours to end the dinner on the high …

The Prime Society

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore on May 7, 2012 at 10:08

I think the last time I had dinner at The Prime Society was in 2007 and it was restaurant week Singapore that has bought me back to this place after 5 long years.

Met a friend for lunch and we decided that the additional 8 dollars top up required for the wagyu minute steak was what we wanted.

We had a wagyu beef Carpaccio as an entree and it was nothing spectacular. There was a tinge of truffle oil but we both feel that it would have tasted better if they had been a little more generous with the truffle oil.

It was surprising to not have the service staff ask for the doneness of our steaks but thankfully they came to us cooked just the way we liked it. The steaks were medium rare and came with a side of handcut chips. They will not beat Mortons but they were definitely good value for the price that we paid.

Desserts came to be a mixed bag of good and bad. We had the chocolate orange cake which was so bad we left more than half of it untouched. The Panna cotta fare much better, we loved the lychee and passion fruit salsa that was spooned over the dessert.

The Coffee Club

Look at what-else I managed to find from my photo archives. Another late nite outing with the 2 Es …

They love their sweets and you can see it from the way that they are enjoying their desserts.

Sun with Moon

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore on January 23, 2012 at 11:22

It has been an age since I have eaten at Sun with Moon and was there because it was the choice of the birthday gal.

It was the tofu cheese cake that brought the us to them today. We had 2 little guests with us and they seemed to enjoy the kid’s meal here. So maybe I can consider bring them here again since they really enjoyed the food!


Little couz loving his little meal …


Not so little fren enjoying her “airplane” bento …


Highlight … tofu cheese cake

One of the hardest things for me while I’m sick is the issue of explaining to the 2 little cousins why big sister aka me is in town but we are not heading out for meals and outings. The meals and outings have somewhat been a tradition and bond between us for years and it just gives me a break from work and them a break from school. Don’t really want to scare them with what’s happening with me right now so I guess we just have to be on the lookout for cookouts and stuff that we can do at home for a change.

St Regis Brasserie Les Saveurs – The sweets

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore, snacks n bites on January 20, 2012 at 10:30

Yay found yet another nice dessert outing that I didn’t manage to blog about earlier, dated Oct 2011 I reckon.

Met my bestie for dessert after a long flight home and we decided to meet at a nice little place that was great for catching up. Haven’t met up in a bit due to the craziness of my schedule but that as you already know is the story of my life.

St Regis Brasserie les Saveurs is a great place to for tea and desserts in general and I must say that prior to this visit, I hadn’t been back for quite awhile. The place was still nice and cozy but I guess it is past time for them to replace their cutlery as they seemed kind of tired to me.

I ordered the Pomme Verte or simply the green apple pie keke … it was made up with baked green apples, calvado custard cream and green apple sobet. A departure from my usual chocolate based dessert but I was looking for something different that night. It was light and easy on with a tangy and sweet after taste.

My bestie ordered Chocolate Moelleeux that was basically a chocolate and passionfruit based dessert. It turned out that she didn’t enjoy the taste of passionfruit and so we traded desserts and yes I got the chocolate fix that night anyway :p And she enjoyed my green apple pie …

Chilling with the gals @ TCC

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore, snacks n bites on December 5, 2011 at 22:44

Check out one of the latest dessert TCC has introduced recently. I wanted to checkout the ‘caterpillar’ like dessert that is made from coffee cheese cake. Did I enjoy it? Yes I did but is it a new favorite? Nope. It was nice but not nice enough for me to make a trip down to TCC just for it!

Reconstructed Cake

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore, snacks n bites on September 28, 2011 at 10:35

What would you do if you had a cater a cake for a group of friends who had different dietary restrictions for various reasons? We had 1 who cannot have any chocolate, 2 who hated to eat cream and 1 who only eats cheese cakes?

I present my solution! The Royce Nami Chocolate Cheese Cake. Got the champagne nami chocolate from Royce and a soft-cheesecake from the cake shop located inside The market place.

Glad to say that all of them enjoyed the cake!

Ci Nai Hong Kong Café – East Coast Park

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore on September 19, 2011 at 12:28

I used to like to chill out at this HK café sometime ago and this is the 1st time that I’ve returned since my return home. The menu has been revamped and I have to say that I’m not too happy about the changes made as they have removed quite a few of my favorite dishes like the salted egg softshell crabs, durian pudding and the saliva chicken to name a few.

Thankfully, they did retain my favorite fried rice, the lap mei chao fan or the simply Chinese sausages/salami(waxed meat) that is fried with rice, egg and anchovies. The waxed meats add another dimension of flavour to the taste of the simple egg fried rice by adding the smoking savoury aroma that tantalizes your taste buds.

The chef has managed to maintain the standard of his lap mei fan has presented me with a drool-worthy plate of his signature fried rice and I enjoyed every last bite of it!

Marmalade Pantry‏

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore, singapore on August 25, 2011 at 09:55

It was a long overdue catch up with one of my oldest friends, our friendship dates back to our preschool days and hence the term diaper-mates.

Haven’t seen her for the longest time and it has been even longer since we had a decent catch up session.

It was a fine thurs that we both happened to be free and in the same city, this combination is indeed hard to achieve.

We went to Ion and it was a tough struggle but we decided on Marmalade Pantry over TWG on the virtue of an environment that was more suited for a long overdue catch up session!

I wanted to have my sticky date pudding but D persuaded me to have the tea set with her instead as it offered better value and we were both hungry as we didn’t have time for lunch.

A nice selection of sandwiches, scones, cookies and a choice of 1 cupcake each awaited us with our choice of tea.

Not a bad spread and we did enjoy it but if I have to choose I prefer the english tea @ Goodwood park even though it costs more. And I kinda miss the old marmalade pantry outlet at PR as it was cosier and is more comfortable for long chats!
