This is my 3rd visit to Two Men Bagel House and this time I tried the Bo-Ssam Bagel ($14), featuring roasted pork collar, house kimchi, pickles and aioli sandwiched between toasted plain bagels that are oh so soft and delicious. The korean-style pork collar is tender and well-seasoned, and every bite is a delightful burst of flavours:) Surprisingly, even with such strong flavours, it is not greasy or jelat right till the end of the meal - another win for my favourite bagel joint! P.S. Pardon the poor lighting as I was sitting next to a huge neon light😅

I have very low resistance for laksa pasta😬 I have been wanting to try the highly raved 462 Prawn Laksa Pasta ($17) from Tolido’s Expresso Nook and I finally made my way down to the bustling cafe today:) The place was pretty packed on a Saturday afternoon (had to wait in line for 20-30min) but the laksa pasta was worth the wait😍 The laksa gravy is rich, flavourful and infused with the fragrance of coconut milk, and it goes really well with the al dente pasta and succulent prawns. I polished my plate clean! Given its quality and quantity (portion is pretty big), the price is quite reasonable👍🏻 Officially one of my favourite laksa pasta in Singapore:)!

Took a break from work on Monday and found myself back at Tanjong Pagar area for a bagel treat at Two Men Bagel House! Bad news: All the bagel options except Rye has sold out by the time I reached at 2pm. Good news: Despite the lack of options, the Rye bagel turned out great! The bagel is perfectly soft, bouncy and chewy. I like that it has a great bite without being tough. I ordered the Lox Bagel ($12) which consists of a generous serving of smoked salmon, cream cheese, beet, pickled red onions, capers and dill - the ingredients complemented one another really well and it was delicious! Easily my favourite bagel place in Singapore😍

I must admit that the DIY healthy meal ($12 for 1 protein, 1 staple and 2 veggies) I got from Gentlebros Cafe does not look like the most appetising lunch option out there BUT it is surprisingly delicious! The pork sausage is savoury and juicy and a great match with the tasty curried cauliflower, mixed cherry tomatoes in balsamic vinaigrette and brown rice😋 The portion is pretty decent for its price. I heard that the Boneless Chicken Thigh is very good too but unfortunately it was sold out when I was there. Looks like I need to revisit soon:)!

Attended my first Burpple Eatup (woohoo!) recently and I had the chance to feast on 3 variations of the 4-Course Set Meal ($60++) from Coriander Leaf Grill🤤. For appetisers, the Falafel (fried chickpea patties) goes well with the spiced tahini yoghurt while the Paneer Shashlik (fresh cheese marinated in spices and grilled in a tandoor) reminds me of a well-seasoned grilled tofu. But the star of the night would have to be the Charcoal Grilled Red Snapper Fillet with Green Chilli Pesto, Wok Fried Eggplant and Steamed Rice - the fish is fresh and moist (love the grilled skin!) and the eggplant is really delicious. The Angus Striploin Steak with Wakame Butter is also grilled till medium rare perfection, and turned out to be juicy and flavourful. Although the meal is on the pricier side, there is a one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond:)! Thank you Burpple and Coriander Leaf Grill for the lovely dinner!

It’s my first visit to Rookery and the cafe is surprisingly spared from the CBD lunchtime crowd! The Fish N’ Chips ($24) is pretty good - the batter is thin, the Haddock fillet is fresh and the potato crisps are crispy and airy - I love how the texture is almost a cross between potato wedges and potato chips:)! The menu is a little pricey, but the deals are sweet with Burpple Beyond!

The Spam and Cheese burger ($9.90) from Scrambled comes with creamy scrambled eggs, fried spam and melted cheese in curry mayo sauce - a pretty good burger lunch I must say:D I didn’t order fries for sides, but the Scrambled Signature Fries And Truffle Fries that I koped from my friends are pretty yummy as well! The portion is also bigger than expected - wouldn’t mind coming back to try the other burger flavours;)!

Now this is starting 2019 right🤩 Dragged myself to wake up at 8am on New Year Day to have breakfast at Common Man Coffee Roasters and was rewarded with a really good stack of Common Man Fluffy Pancakes ($22)! The caramelised bananas and walnuts, salted caramel sauce, nutty crumble and berry coulis go really well with the moist pancakes - I like that it has just the right balance of sweet and sour:)!

The Tiger Prawn Aglio Olio ($18.90) from Saveur is pretty good! The angle hair pasta is tossed in fragrant garlic oil and goes really well with the crunchy tiger prawns. The richness of the poached egg and crunch of the sakura ebi are also plus points for the dish:)

Love having my cheddar toast soaked in the French Onion Soup ($5.90) from Poulet😙

We ordered Golden Wham! Fries ($14.90) for sharing - the sweet potato fries with salted duck egg, mozzarella, gruyere and sour cream is quite addictive! The fries are on the softer side but still good nonetheless:) Will be back for more!

Had a hearty lunch at Equilibrium today! I ordered Maiale Orientale, which is a bak chor mee inspired Aglio Olio comprising of minced pork, mushroom, chili and red wine vinegar😬 It’s hard to go wrong when you marry two of my favourite noodle dishes - it’s very tasty and satisfying:)! The vinegar could have been a little stronger to have more semblance to the typical vinegary BCM. The $15.90++ lunch set comes with small bite of the day, petite antipasto, cheese of the day and homemade bread, which is a pretty good deal to me👏🏻 We also ordered Garlic Truffle Fries topped with hand shaved Grana Padano ($16) to share - I love the baked whole garlic cloves that are served together with the aromatic thick cut fries:) Would love to go back to try the other items on the menu, such as the salty egg dirty fries🤩!
