Meat Platter ($42.50) Many plans to eat pasta but, this was on the Daily Specials board. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It said for 2-3 but, there were just 2 of us and we had it as our main (though I imagine a very hungry person could clean this off easily). This platter included a very tasty 180g beef hangar, 160g crispy skinned pan fried barramundi, a roast beef sausage and 1/2 a spring chicken. These also came with sautéed veggies and a beautiful peppery mash. My faves were the barramundi (so well cooked with a little saltiness that I like with fish) and the beef hangar. Though it was slightly more done than I would have it, it was so nicely prepared and tasted great. Such a nice quiet spot, decently priced menu and not crowded on a week night. I need to come back to try the beef fettuccine as originally planned though. 👍🏼

Complementary Lavender Creme Brulee (From Burpple, When U Order Mains) Very much prefer a crackling caramelisation but rather well done custard base that was served cold. Despite the coolness, the custard's lavender fragrance came through sharply and was very much appreciated. Cost 4.9++ normally i think and very much worth the price. It's a pity the norwegian salmon capellini was not available during lunch as i really looked forward to it. However the adorable cheery service staff more than made up for it, and the pasta didnt disappoint. Overall a great experience especially at a rather reasonable price point

Duck Pasta (Main Of Set Lunch) The duck ragu was pulsatingly meaty and while seemingly lacking in meat, each bite was substantial and the pasta was filling. Really good bite too. Actually preferred this over the beef stroganoff

Steak And Fries(Main Of Lunch Set) Ordered medium and glad they cooked it right. Steak was fine but nothing to shout about. The barbeque sauce was really superb and tangy though. Fries were not bad as well and went prefectly with the bbq sauce.

Brioche Toast [$12.90] Of the two desserts we had (the other was waffles), the brioche toast’s the more interesting one since it’s not as commonly found. The toasted bread is coated with lots of cinnamon sugar (kinda felt that it was way too generous and can probably be cut down by half) and paired with a scoop of Ferrero Rocher ice cream. First impression of the ice cream was that it looked very icy in the display, but thankfully they turned out decently smooth! Not really my kind of dessert but it’s good to know that the toast was done nicely fluffy while still being crisp outside.

It’s hard to go wrong with carbs, cheese and truffle oil. • Nook and Cranny serves up a good mac and cheese ($14.50) that would appeal to everyones tastebuds. Served sizzling hot on a casserole dish, it comes with a cracked egg that makes it even more creamy! I loved the little nuggets of ham and bacon nestled within the dish, almost akin to digging for treasure. • To celebrate their first anniversary, @nookandcranny.sg has an offer whereby on weekdays, you can order any two mains and get the second at 50% off! Promotion is valid for the whole day on weekdays until the end of August 2017. • Thanks to Nook and Cranny for the hosting and @burpple for the invite!

Hot Japanese Matcha Latte [$6] This may not be the one for you if you like your Matcha Latte sweet, but I really enjoyed it. Nicely bitter without any artificial sweeteners, it was smooth and comforting to sip on, even though I did hope that the matcha notes were a teeny bit stronger! Also heard from the owner that their matcha latte was voted as one of the best ones in SG!

Ribena Lychee Fizz [$7] Though this fizzy drink was more on the sweeter end, it was a rather refreshing and fun cup to have. It came with 3 whole lychees and loads of yoghurt pearls (I think that's what they are called) that pop on bite.

For the fitness junkies 4 munchies: I always look forward to my usual order at The Daily Cut after my yoga practice at Pure Yoga. Featuring the large bowl ($15), my picks are the chicken breast, barramundi (+$1.50), romaine lettuce, broccoli, onsen egg, and sweet corn. The chicken breast is nicely marinated and never too dry; the barramundi is peppery and meaty. Portions are always generous, so why not give yourself a treat without the guilt? #Burpproved Ditch the salad dressing because this is so good to be eaten on its own! In fact during my first 2 visits, I had no clue there were self-serve dressings available at the entrance. So I never get them anyway.

This salad can really make you full! I'm always envious of the working class in the city area because they get to pick up salads like this. The Daily Cut is always my top choice when it comes to eating clean. With S$12.00, one can get a regular set which comes with one protein, one complex carbohydrates and three supplements. Today I got for myself chicken breast and romaine lettuce, supplemented by broccoli, almond flakes and couscous (silly me mistook this for sous-vide eggs). Fortunately, this bowl provides me with sufficient protein and fibre to make it a satisfying post-workout lunch, and the couscous also contains protein and fibre for the record (I read this from Wikipedia). The chicken breast tasted a little too salty today for my liking, but thank goodness for having two portions of greens in my bowl. Honestly, with great texture and flavour, there is no need for additional salad dressing for me. Perx users can also pick up an e-stamp for loyalty rewards.

Grilled salmon With Romaine lettuce As far as salads go, this one is decently priced ($9.90) by CBD standards. Loving the roasted mushrooms and huge portion of grilled salmon(add on of $3) and asparagus. Go with the pesto sauce.

White Wine Prawn Spaghetti [$17.90] Done with white wine, this aglio olio style spaghetti was tossed with crunchy fresh plump prawns and sweet cherry tomatoes, topped with shaved parmesan cheese, chilli flakes and chopped fresh parsley. Liked the garlicky flavours here, not too spicy but good enough to be appetising. Was an easy plate to finish!

Tom Yum Cremoso [$18.90] Craftsmen’s rendition of a tom yum pasta has flavours that are a lot more muted down, compared to the usual ones that go all out with that spicy, sourish and tangy sorta kick. The house made tom yum base here is not as thick and gao too, with the tom yum and spice elements much more subtle. That aside, there was a good portion of prawns, mussels and squid with its al dente pasta!

Smoked Salmon Pizza [$21/$25] Exclusive to their Clarke Quay outlet, Craftsmen has up to 15 types of hand stretched pizzas on their menu, with choices ranging from the more familiar Hawaiian and Pepperoni to others like Wild Mushrooms with Sausages and Curry Chicken. The Smoked Salmon Pizza came topped with shaved parmesan and mesclun mix. There was a generous portion of smoked salmon and I liked that it wasn't too salty. The thin crust base was crispy all around, decent although I very much prefer mine with a slight chew!

4 Cheese Pizza [$21/$25] The favourite of the night for us, the most simple looking pizza but also the most flavorful. Using a mix of mozzarella, smoked scarmoza, taleggio and gorgonzola, it sounds really overwhelming but Craftsmen did theirs well with a nicely managed balance of the 4. It wasn't too intense, you get a good taste of each cheese and a punch of blue cheese between mouths. I would have preferred the crust and dough to have more of a chew, as this was a tad too crispy all around. Do note that their range of hand stretched pizzas are only available at their Clarke Quay outlet. A huge thank you to Craftsmen for the warm hospitality and @burpple for the kind invite! 🙆🏻

Forget What You Knew About Gratin Kani Gratin ($7) Too good to not to burn your lips, creamy and well-balanced, I'd like one more! Shukuu Izakaya has a well-crafted menu (not huge, but very complete) with everything you can wish for in an Izakaya. I will highly recommend the squid ink calamari, iberico charshu, and the 6pc Oden soup dish!

Complimentary Salad Bar W Purchase Of Lunch Set(one Time Only) Came here for the kani gratin but it's only available during dinner. Same for the yaki gyutan and all other ala carte menus so q disappointed. They really need to make it clear Otherwise the food is pretty decent. The eggplant skin was rather leathery but aside from that the salad bar was good. Japanese style Potato salad and tofu were pretty standard but the actual salad was surprisingly addictive! Probably the most impressive item on the salad bar today. Sweet, sour and crunchy, they even made the usually bitter lettuce palatable.

Where to have brunch on a public holiday morning? Maybe The Market Grill. The CW Cod Fish Burger (SGD$28.00) - if I was expecting some sub-standard deep-fried cod patty, I was in for a surprise. Toasted parmesan bun clasped a generous fillet of grilled pommery-marinated buttery Atlantic cod - all flakey and tender and freshness. Other ingredients flanked together by the buns were vine cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce and lemony herb mayonnaise. Every bite was a palate adventure and discovery of how good tastes come together.

Charcuterie Connoisseur Board ($32) Assorted of speciality spiced & dry-cured meats served with sourdough bread on the side. Essentially a great atas appetiser to start with full of many things I can't pronounce like: rosette superieure saucisson, chorizo iberico, pate forestier & duck rilette. Thanks @oo_foodielicious for feeding me again 😂

Mussels In A Pot ($25++) So many reasons to love this: HUGE mussels. Kickass house-made crustacean bisque that's got white wine, brandy, chili padi and a truckload of garlic. Toasted ciabatta to mop every drop of it with. Yes, it's ideal for sharing but the question is, do you really want to?

Chargrilled Fresh Lobster ($48++) One bite was all it took to confirm the obvious succulence and bouncy-flesh yumminess of this lobster. Not that it should surprise as minutes prior, this creature was blowing bubbles with its buddies in the glass tank across my table. As eager as I was to indulge in its bare naked sweetness, the accompanying garlic butter oil was such a sneaky temptress I had no choice but to succumb.
