From the takeaway kiosk at the small stalls located at isetan scotts supermarket , this Saba set tastes as good as it looks.

I love the variety of items which adds such a touch of colour and variance to the tastes and textures of the meal . What attracted me were actually the hijiki and the burdock salad 🤩.

Having said that , the Saba was juicy and well grilled and not overly seasoned while the ginger soy chicken was tender and tasty .
Since this is run by a Japanese , high grade Japanese rice is used and this is a plus plus plus 😊 .

All in all , a very pleasant meal and at 7.80 , very very affordable too .

Mocha in what looks like a soup bowl .

Such a generous portion and very smooth coffee I must say .

A nice place to catch up with an old friend or simply just sit and watch the world go by .

No Monday blues ...

When you have beautifully cooked scrambled eggs and a hot and fluffy steamed mantou.

Go for the option to TOP up 50 cents for the homemade kaya .

It is kaya so aromatic and smooth and most importantly not sickeningly sweet - Beats the ones from Yx xxx and Kxxxxx Kxxxxxxx hands down.

My favourite place to have a pocket friendly fuss free brunch and watch the world go by .

Back to sushi hanamaru after my first extremely pleasant experience with them.

Fish is still very fresh but the rice was not done as well as the first time - slightly mushy this round and lacking of that piquant Japanese rice flavour I was looking for .

Still a nice hideout for a very value for money set lunch .

Paired with a salmon miso soup and fresh salad ,
Where else can you find this quality at 18 dollars ?

Restaurant is quiet and comfortable to dine in .

Service can be improved - sense the server’s impatience when I asked for a change of tables for some privacy .

But no complaints for 18 dollars ... really . Just a feedback 😂.

Outstanding quality

I walked past J65 to get to the bus stop 🚏 to get home but this huge baked salmon stopped me in my tracks .

It was too big ( and fresh ) to ignore . I picked up my phone , called my Sister and asked her for an impromptu dinner.

I was thinking of having salmon the whole day and what better than a freshly baked one covered in fresh tomato chutney ?

J65 was having a 2 for 88 plus plus eatbook discount ( instead of 58 plus plus per pax) . This offer was too good to miss and my rambling tummy gave in .

The variety at J65 is not huge but surprisingly they had all the items that I fancy .

The baked salmon was Uber fresh and moist - kudos to the Chef given that this is a huge fish and quite difficult to cook perfectly .

Paus so colourful and cups so cute to satisfy that inner child within you ....

I used to like Khong Guan’s purple bao in my student days because that was the only thing closest to an Orh - nee look a like .

These days I go to just dough for my yam pau fix .

Extremely creamy and Luxurious yam filling and yes - authentic yam 🥰 wrapped around with a fluffy cloud like pau .

The best afternoon treat 😊

Croissant lover 🚨 alert

For those of you who have been hunting high and Low for a good croissant and don’t want to travel too far out to get one .

I assure you - you will be very delighted with Pullman bakery’s croissant .

It has a good balance of flakiness on the exterior and a good moisture inside and it is so aromatic - not some cheap baking butter that some bakeries use .

Better still , it is huge and even better it is only 1.80.

Go get yours today !

This quiche is done so well - it deserves a solo write up ( despite my earlier posting ).

The quiche was so jam packed with ingredients a topped a crisp and buttery base which was fragrant and surprisingly light and not greasy ( unlike some soggy quiche bases which I have had in many cafes ) .

The ratio of tart pastry to filling is also perfect . The highlight actually goes to the texture of the tart - it was almost like a cross between a shortcrust pastry with a puff pastry - one of the best quiches I have eaten in a Long while .

For 3 dollars - this was such an affordable tea time treat . So Glad that the quiche was kept in a warmer and unlike Hans or coffee bean which warm their quiches up in a microwave - you don’t get a soggy tart base at M bakery .

Every cake , tart and quiche is made with so much love 💖 and attention .

A nice change from the usual Brand names that we are so accustomed to seeing.

Homemade goodness

A lovely takeaway kiosk with limited seats but a showcase full of handmade love .

M bakery is situated at basement 2 of PLQ ( near the entrance of Fairprice finest ) and I assure you that the variety of homemade cakes , dessert tarts and Savory quiches are so plentiful - your eyes begin feasting even before your stomach does.

The spinach and mushroom quiche was so packed with ingredients that although it may seem like a slim slice - you will sure be filled up in no time with that decadent buttery pastry. One of the better quiches I have eaten in a Long time - definitely a must order !

The desserts here are also less sweet so you don’t have to worry about a sugar high. The Bakewell tart is quite hard to come by - a traditional English pastry with jam and frangipane - simply but delightful .

The lemon 🍋 meringue tart was also very well made - with a good balance of citrusy note from the lemon cream balanced off with a well made meringue torched for an elevated oomph .

My eyes couldn’t take themselves off the homemade carrot cake and the gula Melaka cake so will come back for these the next time round .

The cakes , tarts and quiches are priced so reasonably given that we can expect the type of rents PLQ charges .

A very lovely local start up - will definitely be in my list to order cakes and pastries for my next gathering .

There’s something really alluring about the breads from the fresh bread shop at Shunfu .

Specialising in mini buns which are not exactly cheap for their size but still worth every cent considering the quality.

Unlike bread talks buns which stick to your teeth and smell of cheap margarine, the buns here have a good elasticity but still soft and fluffy .

Best curry potato bun paired with the best coffee from de fa coffee stall . That’s the advantage of eating at a Hawker - you get to choose the best item from the best stall 😊

Breakfast for champions.

Hans always do their omelette perfect.

Forgot being overcharged at cafes and come here for your omelette treat .

Accompanied with a hot drink of your choice 😊

At 6.50 - this is really value for money .

Set next to the bakery at 313 Somerset is an open seating area where you can grab a quick lunch or tea or breakfast set .

At 6.90 nett - this tea Set is really value for money .

I find marches cakes and pies made full of love and quality ingredients. In comparisons to cedele’s cake sets which have gone up to close to 10 dollars , I say that the cakes and pastries here present so much more value especially when you get them in a set.

This dark chocolate cake is decadent without being too sweet and the Long black is smooth and aromatic .

It’s my top spot to come for a quick tea with no fuss . Try the marche Apple pie as part of the tea set if you have a little more stomach space because the Apple pie is huge but it is really one of the best Apple pies I have eaten.

The best part of having tea here is that you get to check out all the action in the bakery 🥯. Hot breads streaming out from the ovens and queues forming to but sandwiches and breads and muffins and cakes - almost like a carnival feel .

Weekends are meant for this .

I dream of food .
