Eggs & Berries #1






Since I have a willing companion, I decided to try out the restaurant Eggs and Berries (there’s little chance that I will travel all the way to Changi City Point by myself).

We took the route that Street Directory provided, taking bus 858 and changing to bus 31 at the Tampines Bus Interchange (that’s the long way, the better way will be to take the MRT to Expo – Changi City Point is just beside the Expo MRT station.

The restaurant was relatively easy to find. It’s a cheery little place with colorful striped chairs and tablemats. It was dinnertime by the time we arrived, and they had this cute egg-shaped table light (that is lighted by a light bulb). We were seated in a cozy corner seat.

Oh my, the whole A3 size menu on one side is dedicated to all-day breakfast, it looks like I will be coming back here quite often. I was famished, so I ordered two main courses – Cheese and Beef Omelette and Eggs Benedict, with pancakes as side dish (as suggested in “
Singapore's 5 Best All-Day Breakfast Joints” and hot chocolate for drink, while he had Grilled Chicken and Steak.

The hot chocolate came first, arriving in a small glass mug placed on a glass dish. It’s delicious, exactly how hot chocolate is supposed to taste like, all creamy and chocolaty.  
Next, my Cheese and Beef Omelette arrived, with the pancakes in a small side dish, and there is a rattan basket of chocolate sauce, raspberry sauce and maple syrup for the pancakes. I dug into the omelette – cheese and beef make such a wonderful combination (Sean loves it, evident from the words of praises coming from someone who is so stingy with praises when it comes to food).

After polishing off the omelette, I went on to the pancakes. Just like it was described in “Singapore’s 5 Best All-Day Breakfast Joints”, they are ‘extra light and pillow-like’. Since there are three of the pancakes and I have three sauces, I had every pancake with a different sauce. The maple syrup is normal, it’s just like the ones McDonald have. The raspberry sauce has a slightly sour taste to it, which I rather liked, but I have to say the one that stands out is the chocolate sauce. It’s not those chocolate syrups that you get from supermarkets, it’s thick like real melted chocolate (but I could be wrong).

My second main course arrived shortly. It is just as described in “Singapore’s 5 Best All-Day Breakfast Joints” ‘The Eggs Benedict have yolks that are done to perfection –sunshine-orange that flows like lava at a poke. Served on toasted English muffins with bacon, ham, hash browns and salad, it comes with sides such as lima beans and a carved tomato topped with garlic, breadcrumbs and herbs’.

Learning from Sean’s mistake, I scooped the whole yolk using a fork and stuffed it into my mouth. The egg yolk burst in my mouth like fireworks.

I am one of those people who feel that a meal should end on a sweet note, so I had Crème Brulee for desert. There was nothing special about the crème brulee itself, but it came in the cutest egg-shaped glass vessel.

I had a very satisfying meal. I am sure I will be back for more.

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.


I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.



Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.


The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.
For drinks,…

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.




The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
