Perhaps it's not the wisest; but I wish I had a bigger appetite so I can try everything in this place! From the wide selection at the πŸ₯— bar, to the 🍳 counter & finally our main course of Hamburg steak, not one thing failed me in terms of taste and it's quality. Word of advice: hold back on over-trying what's offered at the salad bar lest you can't finish the 🍚 like I did. πŸ˜‹


Didn't know how this cafe escaped my notice, or why it took me this long to visit them because I walked out with a happy, satisfied feeling from the meal I had with them.

At Good Thyme Bistro, there's no fancy interior decor that would wow you when you step in, but the hospitality of the staff did make me feel like home. They were really friendly and warm, offering to help us with anything we need and even asked us if our dishes were up to standard. Though orders might take a little longer to serve, but the quality of food served makes up for it. What took me by surprise was that in the 1.5 hours I was there, I actually saw many elderly folks entering to have their lunch, which isn't a typical sight at other cafes. Price wise; across the menu it's pretty average as compared to other cafes. Would I return again? Definitely.


I've seen so many people profess over and over their love for tacos (to the extent of marrying one?!), but I never did understood their innate love for it because I've never tried Mexican food. But last Friday I finally had my first taste of it at Vatos, and probably because it's Korean-Mexican fusion food I fell absolutely head over heels with it!

I ordered: Spicy Chicken Quesadilla...
that's wrapped with spicy chicken chunks & topped with sour cream, arbol chili sauce & diced onions. It was such a delight to have, since all the ingredients blend and compliment each other so perfectly!

Vanessa ordered: Chimichurri Chicken Taco...
that consist of spicy chicken, Mexican cheese, lettuce, onion, chimichurri salsa and sour cream served on 100% corn tortilla. I had one and it was pretty good; it tastes much healthier than mine since the ratio of meat to veg in the tacos was probably 2:1? Hit my week's quota of veg intake after that! :)

Side order: Honey Tequila Chicken Wings...
Wings coated in sweet & spicy honey tequila sauce, served with deep-fried masa-battered jalapeΓ±os, cilantro & blue cheese dipping sauce. Yup! The blue cheese dip caught our attention and it was practically a must-order-and-try for us. The wings were superb by itself; really well-marinated and it though drenched with sauce the skin's still very crispy while the meat inside retained it's freshness and juiciness to it. The blue cheese dip wasn't too bad since there wasn't the pungent smell that I recalled of it having, but I'd prefer to eat the wings without the dip.

Must-mention: their Iced Peach Tea
Maybe it's because the weather outside was scorching hot, but boy did I regret not getting the large glass because it tastes really good! Just order that and tried it if you do visit them to know!


Today's meal was just average, or probably because we didn't order their BBQ meats (which I remembered to be really good). If you want a good budae jjigae (army stew), I'd recommend Seoul Yummy's!


What are we in a rush for from day to day?" I don't know his story, but I'm boldly betting that for him to keep doing what he's doing for this long (even till now at his age), it takes love. And passion. And determination to fight through the days when he wants to give up. It's not a glamorous job nor does it promise riches or fame, but ultimately if it brings him purpose and joy in life, then isn't that the biggest achievement and best choice he could make? Shouldn't we too? πŸ’­


Miss: sambal potato leaves/stingray.
An oddly satisfying meal nonetheless, all thanks to my favorite company. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜πŸ’•

😊 Thank you @brunchescafe & @samplestore for hosting this food tasting session, and having Rachel and me over! We really love the interior decor of the cafe, and the extensive menu made it really hard for us to decide what to order! More on the blog soon! 😁
