Not A Car(rara)e In The World While the search for a cuppa comparable to Aussie coffees still continues, Carrara ain’t half bad. The cappuccino is a little more bitter than usual, but it’s offset with a stronger cocoa scent and taste. Pretty creamy and tantalizingly thick in body too. Not half bad as a posh(er) pick me up, really.
What’re You Wafflin’ On About? Carrara (which is also ridiculously difficult to get the spelling right) Cafe seems hopelessly out of place in an old industrial neighborhood, but they seem to be getting on just fine. Besides the usual café fare offered, their pride seems to be their waffles, which are either very conveniently paired with artisanal gelatos, or offered up as a savory option as part of their all day breakfast. The waffles themselves are decent, albeit rather run of the mill. A nice fluffy, eggy and slightly savory interior is encased within a mildly crispy exterior that’s nicely browned. However, when a scoop (or three) of gelato is situated on top of the waffle, that’s when the magic happens. Y’all probably know by now what happens when ice cream is fused with waffles, so I’ll just skip that part and announce that Carrara’s gula melaka gelato is enticingly enjoyable. It might be a little too sweet on its own, but when it’s married to the fluffy, fresh and hot waffle, it’s perfect. Just like that soppy Ed Sheeran song.
Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Lemongrass Gelato Blue butterfly pea flower lemongrass tea was an in-thing previously, known for its nutritiously and attractive blue hue. Carrara has creatively replicated the butterfly blue pea flower and lemongrass flavours into a gelato that is pretty and quite delicious. We also ordered the earl grey flavour, together in a single cup. Would hope to try their mains in our next visit to the cafe.

More of the fabulous food we had at @nakedfinn during lunch yesterday. This Chilled Somen in yuzu ponzu sauce was refreshingly delicious, perfect for the hot weather and when we wanted something light yet flavourful. Diced salmon and scallops were lightly seared and added to the house-made Ikura that popped with amazing taste of the sea. We also had their grilled baby squids and daily special Uni “scallop risotto” that were awesome. Our lunch ended with a refreshing Lychee pink grapefruit sorbet that had such great texture we could taste the meat of the fruits. Their home-made Chendol with coconut sorbet was the next-level from the usual ones, tasting wonderful without the jelakness.

I’m a big fan of prawn mee and this bowl of Hae Mee Tng by @nakedfinn was just a big indulgence. At a premium price, the bowl of prawn broth was dark and packed with intense, complex and rich seafood umami. Absolutely awesome flavours so good no drop of it was spared by the end of the meal. While there could be more of the sliced pork collar, the 3 huge and super fresh tiger prawns were totally delicious. Along with many other tasty seafood dishes, we have been drawn back here and know that we will come back again for more.

For a Treat-yourself Meal with the Crew Round up the gang for a splurge-worthy meal at Gillman Barracks. Must-tries include their comforting Hae Mee Tng ($25) where slices of pork and fresh prawns swim in a sweet broth. Also good is the Locally-farmed barramundi and the super popular Chilled Piquant Rice Vermicelli ($8) topped with a mountain of Sakura Ebi, both of which can also be found in their Dinner Menu (from $68). End the night on a high by hopping over to the bar next door, Nekkid, for a night cap or two. Photo by Burppler Vanessa Kou

Grilled Iberico Pork Chop ($26++) This is one of Vineyard’s signature mains. Pork is very tender despite the size. Sauce (winner of the dish) is on the herby side which I like a lot - could be a bit salty but manageable. It’s served with roasted potato and veggies. Place is secluded and good for quiet dates with a nature view :)

Grilled Iberico Pork Chop ($26) 250g Bone in Pork Chop, Cajun Roasted Potatoes, Roasted Vegetables, Mustard Brown Sauce. Pork chop was nicely seasoned and well cooked. Every bite of the meat was flavourful and not too tough. Potatoes was mildly flavoured. Roasted vegetables consisted of carrots and zucchini. Carrots were crunchy and the zucchini was tender. Mustard Brown sauce tasted similar to black pepper sauce. Overall really like this dish and would recommend it. I also ordered the Crispy Battered Mushroom ($10) served with Garlic Aioli and Truffle Mushroom Alfedo Pasta ($20). The batter of the mushroom were crispy throughout and didn't turn soggy. Mushrooms were unseasoned, only giving off its natural umaminess. The aioli somehow tasted more like mayonnaise to me. Overall found this dish so-so. Pasta was Linguine Pasta cooked in Truffle Mushroom Cream Sauce with Medley Mushroom, Onsen Egg, Shaved Parmesan. Pasta was slightly on the harder side which I prefer. Mushroom was ok. Truffle was detectable. The dish gave me a home-y feel because of the rich, warm creamy sauce. However it became a little overwhelming at the end because of the creaminess. Overall I think it would be better to share this dish.

look at that chocolate lava 🤤 // had a lunch date with my mom today after i accompanied her to her office to run some errands. it was my first trip to Anchorpoint and it was a cool mall tbh, there were so many nice shops like Ma Maison, TCC, Duke Bakery & All the Batter!! there was a real cool japanese mart too 👍🏻 but anyways,, for lunch we shared a crayfish & scallop baked rice, croquettes & a chocolate lava cake! the baked rice used risotto rice and it was a refreshing concept! i thought the crayfish were mini prawns lmao #onebraincell the seafood were juicy but honestly this baked rice wasn’t my fav. / the croquettes were good tho, it had whole corns in them and were served with a tangy dipping sauce! mayhaps it’s because i love croquettes and anything citrusy lol but i loved this one! it wasn’t too oily too. / as for the lava cake, it was super rich & chocolaty, momsie & i were like “MMMMMMM” during the first few bites but i lowkey got a little sick of it towards the end... the batter tasted a little too doughy after a few bites. i wish the ice cream wasn’t vanilla flavoured, i dislike most vanilla ice creams bc they taste artificial and weird (i’ve had good vanilla ice cream tho but those are super rare) and TCC’s tasted a little artificial too ☹️ i ate some anyway bc it feels good to pair cold with hot when having desserts lol / i also ordered a caffeine-free melon & mangosteen tea and it came with a cookie!!!! (which was good btw it was so buttery 😍) the tea itself was fruity & floral with a unique scent (since i’ve never had mangosteen tea before) some other things in the teabag: marigold, rosehip, apple... & a few other things but again i have one brain cell so that was all i can remember. my mom got a peanut hazelnut chocolate latte which was sweet, comforting and full of texture but she said it made her feel sick halfway through the cup 🤷🏻‍♀️ probably from the huge amounts of sugar in it but well it tasted yum. / it felt nice going back to TCC after a long while as my mom & i used to frequent there after my hospital appointments a few years ago (at another outlet) and i felt like i relieved some nice memories hehe.
Mentaiko Chicken Burger [$18.80] So glad that we chose to get this even though it wasn't a best seller or one of those items that are specially "badged" on a menu. We were pleasantly surprised by the thickness and juiciness of the patty coupled with just enough mentaiko sauce to make it a delightful dish. The truffle fries were also a welcome additional unlike the normal ones we usually have elsewhere. 😋

Sour Plum Mojito ($18++). The stylish Aqualuna of Park Hotel Alexandra actually serves affordable cocktails and bar snacks that is also open to public. I could totally imagine myself swimming in the pool while occasionally stopping by the side to sip on these cocktails or munch on their cauliflower chips.. Or parking myself here while wifey does her Ikea shopping next door. 🔸 This is taken during a tasting.
It's Fridayyyyy! Time to unwind plssss! 🙋🏻 This hidden gem offers a quiet bar to meet your drinking quota as well as decent bar food! Overlooking the swimming pool and the quaint neighbourhood, the reason why this place makes an awesome hangout is the semi-open air (love the smell of fresh air). Definitely makes a good chillout and it's conducive for chatting too. Now you know! . #parkhotelalexandra #parkhotel #sixthsensepr #tgif
Stuck for ideas for Valentine’s Day? Pop in at Aqua Luna at Park Hotel Alexandra and sip on their Valentine’s Day cocktails ($19.99++ per set) by the pool on 13th & 14th January. For him… a concoction of Hendricks gin, elderflower liqueur, cucumber and a squeeze of lime. For her… Belvedere vodka, pineapple and mango juice, violette liqueur, BOLS Yogurt Liqueur and grenadine garnished with a slice of candied orange and a toasted marshmallow! I personally enjoyed the refreshing cocktail for “him”. These cocktails are complimentary if you’re indulging in the sermi-buffet Valentine’s day dinner ($188++ per couple) at The Carvery. #AquaLuna #ParkHotelAlexandra #Cocktails
