My first post all the way from Amman, the capital of Jordan. Spring is fast approaching and here I am enjoying a Cappucino, a lazy cake and a Halloumi sandwich. Cafe prices here are exorbitant with 16% taxes and also the exchange rate is 1.90 SGD to 1 Jordanian dinar. This whole thing set me back at 22 SGD (11.60 JD). I miss singapore....

Burdock so good!! Never imagined a walking stick-looking root vegetable can taste this good! You can help yourself to the different types of condiments available so for this I added just a pinch of yuzu chili. The broth became slightly spicy and was a hearty bowl of lunch for me!

From the Teppei Group, this newly opened udon place is a hidden gem. When I was there before the lunch crowd, I got to really enjoy the udon in a super quiet environment with Jap pop music in the background. Udon was not the usual IMO, very wholesome and springy. Broth was slightly sweet-salty yet clean tasting on the palate and slurp worthy! Fishcake was not bad. Overall a 8/10. Price: Half bowl at $7, Onsen egg additional $2 (not including GST.)

This is newly opened, a couple months back. When I arrived at 9am, there was already a tantalising display of food available. Place is adequately airconditioned and clean. The mee siam was very legit! Delicious just with the right punch of spicy- sweet and sour! Place accepts cash only. Slurrrrrping goodness! Tip: Don't wear white unless you want red dots on your shirt.

Taco was served freshly made and it was quite good. Its piquant salsa sauce with a dollop of smashed avocado was also very delicious. Service was good too. The only downside was the wait. Be prepared to wait! There were 4 other diners and I had to wait almost 40 minutes for my order to finally make its appearance 🤣

Wow! Talk about not eating junk. I felt so satiated after finishing this whole plate. I doubt I'm having lunch today. The scrambled eggs were very creamy and jiggly, just like how it should be. The edamame beans were doused with truffle oil. The shiitake mushrooms were flavourful and juicy. Waffles were not the crispy type, but still, it made the cut. The sauce was also delectable - tangy and salty. Overall worth the calories and paying $12.79 (GST included).

Help! I think I need a restraining order against waffles 🤣 Yes..I love them so much I can have them in their savory or sweet glory. Pictured here is Chicken and Waffles ($13.80). Verdict: Satisfaction guaranteed! Mashed potatos was a wonderful texture and buttery. Chicken was crunchylicious. Waffles were on point. Pro tip: For a less guilt ridden meal: I requested to not have the fries and switched it to mashed potatoes instead and I even brought my own kimchi sauerkraut 😂 oh the background was Fish and Chips for my Mom.

At $5 and with a generous spread of avocado and sprinkles of cheese, I must say I am pretty satisfied with this! A very quiet cafe with the usual range of lattes and coffee. I also tried their Mocha ($5). It was very good! Will definitely be back to scour their menu items and try them 😁

The waffles were of the right bite. The orange mustard maple syrup sauce was spectacular! The duck was moist and tender. If only there were more of that arugula then it would be the perfect dish of the month for me 🤣 What a lip smacking and fulfilling lunch! Filled with gratitude and quacking with delight now 😁

At $8 (single), it's rather on the pricey side given the half of a cute sized boiled egg and perhaps 1/4 of a smashed avocado and a pinch of cheese, melted. Having said that, it's very standard cafe price so I ain't complaining. (We pay for the trendy cafe experience and ambience IMO). Also, it was delicious actually. Place accepts NETs and no GST or service charge 😃

This pizza at $11.80 with a mini side of yoghurt, is on the pricey side IMO. Taste was ok, a little peppery. The crust was croissant-like. I'd give it a 3/5 on a scale of yummy-ness.

The Mad Sailors has this "Meal Deals" option where the Easy Peasy Linguine dish went for $15 and the Cod Fish and Chips; $16, including a drink each. The linguine was ok, nothing memorable. The Fish and Chips were a hit and a miss 'cause the batter was scrumptious and fish moist and juicy but overall a tad tasteless. The chips were legit and quite Bri-ish!

I eat to live but sometimes it goes the other way round! 🤣 Sadly I have relocated to Jordan.
