Perfectly cooked scrambled eggs for a perfect brekkie ... ...

Yes in face of the virus - please keep your hands clean 🧼 and hence my disinfectant is always within reach especially when I need to enjoy my Soft fluffy mantou with my hands.

The set comes with a mantou , scrambled eggs , sautéed mushrooms , grilled pineapple and a hot drink of your choice .

I asked to TOP up 50cents for a side of homemade kaya . Yes - I like both salty and sweet in my meal 😁.

Yes -McCafe is officially my choice place for a reliable and very moist chocolate muffin ( that’s actually surprisingly good ) and a pretty wicked cappuccino. For that magic coffee ratio, ask for less milk in your cappuccino and TOP with extra cinnamon and cocoa powder - you will thank me for this . ...

This is after Starbucks withdrew both their carrot cake muffin and the chocolate molten muffins - very very sad . Why must the good things go ?
So no more Starbucks for me now ....

At 4.95, this McCafé muffin set is really value for money .

The child in me still screams for MacDonald’s - and there’s just this special feeling of revisiting MacDonald’s - just this special anticipation - something old , something new .

Just when you had a Long day and need a place to hide - MacDonald’s always has a place for you .

All for 10.90 ++ 😱

The ebiko shrimp ball la mian in homemade chilli vinegar sauce , cold cucumber salad and the green tea came together as a tea set that was pretty value for money I must say.

The problem was that the noodles were so soggy till they actually reminded me of ( straight) maggi noodles . And people who eat with me Long enough will know that I don’t tolerate such standards especially if I know that the established ent ought to do much better .

I asked for my noodles to be replaced and the replacement bowl was definitely a far cry from the original bowl. The noodles now had a nice bite and tasted closer to la mian.

The shrimp balls or shrimp oblongs like you may call them were average and a little too salty .

The best part was probably the chilli vinegar sauce which went very well with the noodles .

The odd thing though was that I actually found the noodles under taste paradise’s lenu brand of noodles much much better and prices of the noodles at lenu seem to be much more reasonable too .

For a quick lunch - this met all my requirements .

Hot and fresh ✅
Appetising ✅
Good variety ✅
Fast ✅
Reasonably priced ✅

The subtle flavour of scallops in the porridge was alluring - pretty unbelievable- I don’t see any trace of scallops though 😆

Perfect meal that won’t break the bank for a rainy weather like this .

The braised condiments were done well and the Tau kwa has an interesting texture with many porous holes within - like the Tau kwa done in the good old days .

Add on a crispy you Tiao for a fuller meal 😊 if need be.

What could be better than a fluffy omelette with a Handmade steamed pau , grilled pineapple and sautéed mushrooms to start the day ?

I always enjoy dining at just dough because they put together such wholesome food - like it was served out of your mum’s kitchen .

With a hot drink of your choice , this was just 5.90😊 very value for money .

Who says you can’t eat well and eat cheap hahaha! You can have your cake and eat it !

Am enjoying this Mexican quesadilla tea Set from salad stop ( 3 pm to 5 pm , selected outlets only hor ....) with a freshly brewed organic coffee.

Well toasted quesadillas filled with avocados, tomatoes , black beans , chicken and corn and cheese of course .

Paired with an organic coffee or tea , this afternoon tea Set is only 5 dollars .

Save more to eat more 😛

I used to dream of flying to Hk just for their dim sum and bolo buns ( at the ubiquitously famous mongkok ) bur not anymore after having tasted the best bolo buns in singapore .

Go between 230 to 5pm and get your warm bolo buns with an authentic yuan Yang at a value set meal of 3.80 . The food and ambience makes you feel you are already in hk .

Just be sure to present / pay bill before 5.29 pm - they are very strict with timing issues ..ahem...
( dim sum items are at 30 percent off during weekdays 230pm to 5 pm )

Best Bolo buns in singapore . Light flaky crust and airy feather like buns .

I assure you this is the best .

There’s something about Kopi and tarts that screams out to me every time I see their stalls ...

It’s almost like an automatic trigger to your mind - telling you that you need to get your tart and Kopi / teh .

Maybe it’s just a marketing strategy that so simple but a name that’s chosen so well because it’s so easy to relate to .

I love supporting home grown Names from the likes of “mr bean “to “just dough “ to “ Wang cafe “ ( even though this brand has been bought over by the ntuc group - the same group that manages ntuc food fare 🥺... pardon my expression - I leave you to figure out ... , to “ coffee and toast “ etc ...

The egg tarts at Kopi and tarts are well sized for a good afternoon treat and not too sweet ( that’s a must ! These days because people are running away from sugar as though they see ghosts .... ) .

The egg tarts are baked in batches to maintain freshness . If you like short crust pastry then this is your kind of egg tart . For those of you who prefer a flaky pasty - sorry - you won’t find them here .

I must also make mention of the high quality of tea dust Kopi and tarts use . It’s not bitter and it is aromatic - unlike some Chain coffee places that use cheap tea dust .

Very very satisfying afternoon tea break.

It’s one of my happiest moments in a day 😊

Breakfast time @TheAffogatoLounge, where they serve a selection of paninis, bowls and baked quiches other than affogato.

Head back there the second time and can’t resist getting the mouthwatering Blue Swimmer Crab Quiche ($13). However, for a belly-filling option, Spicy Italian Panini ($15), toasted ciabatta sandwiching salami, red peppers and fontina cheese, is an excellent choice. Grab a cup of Bittersweet Symphony or Dark Mocha to go along tooooooo.

Same same but different

It’s nice to switch to a Mian jian Guo , peanut pancake instead of the usual toast .

I like that the regular coffee / tea could be switched to green tea because I was a little under the weather.

This has become one of my choice places for a no frills breakfast .

I would have loved the pancake to be a little more fluffy and less dense ( although the not so sweet granular peanut filling made up for it ) . The eggs would be nice hot too ....

But for 3 dollars 💵- and for a quick fuss free meal - no complaints 😚

Coffee bean is having a breakfast promo of scrambled eggs and toast and a latte for 4.90.

Order 2 sets and you get a further discount at 9 dollars for both sets.

The toast set was good and eggs were well done but the cappuccino was too thin and the chocolate muffin was tough and dry - the pastries at coffee bean needs major major improvement .

Their muffins used to be much much better - change of suppliers ?

For those of you whom can’t make out what this is ... 🤣

This is not tandoori thought it looks like ...

It’s an oven baked barramundi with tomato ragout , artichokes , sundried tomatoes , capers and roasted potatoes .

The fish was extremely fresh and flakey and enveloped in a generous amount of tomato ragout . I would have liked it a little more balanced in the sweet and salty ratio since all the elements were salty ( ie capers , artichokes and sundried tomatoes ) . The salt content was probably too high .. 🥶

Something more neutral tasting like a broccolini or baked squash , pumpkin or asparagus would have added balanced the flavours better .

Having said that, 30 dollars for a set meal with your choice of appetiser , mains and a dessert in a beautiful, sophisticated yet casual setting at Andaz hotel is just extremely value for money.

I dream of food .
