La Salsa #2


I was rather impressed with the food and service the last time I was here, so here I am again, this time with a different date.

For starters, I ordered Beef Quesadillas.


Honestly, I’m not impressed. The green sauce at the side of the plate is called, which is a sauce/dip made mainly of avocado. The one I have tasted when I was working part-time at Senor Taco is slightly spicy but this one just tastes of avocado, I had to resort to adding Tabasco sauce to it. There is too much cheese and it completely covered the taste of beef. To my horror, when I lifted a slice from the plate, I could see the layer of oil at the base of the plate. Epic fail. Senor Taco does it so much better. I am really missing their beef quesadilla now.



I had Chuleta De Cordero for main course, which is grilled lamb chop. I love the presentation. The lamb chops are given in three small portions, so I don’t have to struggle with a huge lamb bone. The lamb chops are grilled to perfection; slightly charred on the outside but tender on the inside (I asked for the meat to be done medium-rare). The best part is the mint sauce that accompanies the lamb chop. Although it is a little too sweet for my liking, it goes perfectly with the tender lamb. The mango salad is refreshing, but I wish the Mexican rice could be more fragrant.


I had a Sangria (I saw the staff making it and it looked delicious, so I had one). As according to Wikipedia, “it normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. Chopped fruit can include orange, lemon, lime, apple, peach, melon, berries, pineapple, grape, kiwifruit and mango. A sweetener such as honey, sugar, syrup, or orange juice is added”. It’s not as nice and sweet as the one I had when I was working part-time at Giovanni’s Mediterranean Restaurant, but I got used to it after a while. 

All in all, it was a good dinner. The staffs are very attentive and ambience of the restaurant is great with live music in the background.

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.
