[17 Feb 2020] I can't remember if this was the spicy chicken stew or Wonda's army stew, but i reckon it's the latter because I would be keen to order if it's listed as army stew in the menu. Anyway it looks like army stew too so yeah.

Basically it's a hearty pan of stew, filled with the usual ingredients you would expect in an army stew. I like how the cheese is folded in already! Initially I thought it wouldn't be filling, but I was wrong. And I was very satisfied by the flavours. It's so hard to find army stew for one, and I'm glad I have found this! Can't wait to go back and have another round after the CB is over! (and if they have cold noodles that would be the best, because I went there back then for the cold noodles.)

[17 Feb 2020] I found it quite adventurous to try such a combination - cold brew + orange juice - and I was really pleased to find it so refreshing! It's suitable to drink in the hot summer days because adding milk would make the drink heavier and can get jelak after a while.

Went to the Clueless Goat on the day PM announced the Circuit Breaker (3 April) because I was in the neighbourhood. The original order was seasalt Nutella, but they served me Belgian Dark Chocolate. Not complaining because it tasted yummy as well! (just that it didn't have the typical bitter taste you would expect from dark chocolate..) Had it with my usual flat white because I thought I wouldn't have access to the cafe coffees for a while 😎

Went there last month (4th April) to try the watermelon rose cake before the start of Circuit Breaker and I wasn't disappointed! The cream is very light and with the watermelon chunks, the cake was so yummy that I cannot stop eating!

The espresso tonic is refreshing and slightly fizzy! Thus the combination wasn't jelak at all And now I crave for it again hah. If only this cafe is located under my block!

Headed over to Ristr8to today because I just read about the main shop in Chiang Mai recently and I thought it would be nice to try it out.

Being located in Chef Avenue (a food court basically) means you can order from the other stalls and sit at the bar counter of Ristr8to with the food and the coffee, while watching the barista doing the latte art. I sat elsewhere and I kept turning back I think the barista kinda noticed me haha.

Ordered the (latte art) award winning drink - Satan Latte ($5, and see how they have promoted that on their wooden plate). In the menu, it is noted that the strength is 2/8, probably because there is extra milk added to make the latte art. Indeed, the drink is quite milky and very smooth. I didn't really taste the coffee at all 😆.

The menu is quite extensive, from their signature hot / cold drinks to the 'coffee in good spirits' (aka alcoholic coffee), even though the list seems to be lesser as compared to the original shop. But hey, there is still a lot to try! Can't wait to come down again to try the other drinks.

Stumbled upon this place while searching for nearby cafes on Burpple after discovering that Apartment Coffee is closed for Idk what reasons. Anyway, I'm happy to come here because the cafe is quiet, has couches and some of the couches are by the glass doors/windows so I can people/traffic watch. It felt extra cozy today, probably because it was raining heavily when I arrived at the place.

Ordered a simple flat white even though there are other interesting specialty coffee to try - Irish Coffee! But I wasn't in the mood to try new stuff so maybe I'll try that next time.

There's free WiFi here and no service charge & GST! Definitely a place that I will come back again, to do work or just to curl up on the couch with a good book 😌

When I saw the lemon meringue tart in the display after I ordered my food and drink, I regretted. But because the food wasn't that filling, I decided to #YOLO and order the tart because I love lemon meringue tarts and I would order them whenever I see them in a new cafe.

But sadly, the meringue was not the stiff kind of meringue that I'm used to eating. It was kinda liquid-y, and it came with a small thimble of whiteness which I assumed is sugar because it tasted sweet (yes I didn't try asking the staff again). I would scoop some and put it on the tart.

As for the lemon, it wasn't hardly sour, but then again I can take sour stuff quite well.

All in all, it's the most disappointing lemon meringue tart that I had so far. But if you like it sweet with just that hint of sourness then maybe it's the thing for you.

Burpple you took too long to update your database (went there on 7th June but I can't upload anything because there's no location found)!! A couple of days after I saw that Century Square is open again, I went there to explore (for Hey Long Cha actually haha) and I stumbled upon the pretty cafe! It does have the Korean cafe vibes, with the foresty backdrop + slogan at one side one of the cafe (near the kitchen).

Initially I wanted to try the pasta but I (randomly) decided that I shall have the seafood Cioppino, without even asking the staff what exactly is that. They did ask me if I wanted it with tofu or rolls, and feeling kinda puzzled, I chose tofu #healthierchoice. Imagine the surprise that I had when I realized it's just soup. 😂

It's quite flavourful, and I imagine that if I had it with the rolls it would be nice eating the rolls soaked with the soup. But then again, because there is no carbs in this soup, I gleefully went for the lemon meringue tart (in next post).

I ordered the hojicha latte because I developed a liking from it thanks to Matchaya, ironically. And I was pleasantly surprised (again) when it came with a miniature 'carp bread', which was slowly collapsing to one side as I snapped away, so I recommend taking individual shots of the food instead of trying to take them as a set like what I did here. I can't remember what is the filling (should be the basic one), and the hojicha is just.. A decent cup of hojicha 😂 (pardon my lack of vocabulary)

It's quite a nice place to chill, and I would love to have it up in the North because of the variety of dishes that they provide. One minor complaint is probably that there is no glass panels at the main side of the cafe, and because it's located just beside one of the entrances of the mall, I experienced bursts of hot air from where I sat (the couch chairs facing the main counter)
