Fern & Kiwi

This post is way overdue. I had dinner at Fern & Kiwi with my polytechnic friends probably about two years ago, that IS a long time ago. The good thing is, I remember food very well, how it tasted on my tongue, it's all on record.

Singapore is Fern & Kiwi's first overseas outlet and we (I) welcome them with open arms. I don't have to fly all the way to New Zealand to have New Zealand food, that's one of the things I love about Singapore.

The waiter suggested that we get a few dishes and share because the portions are big, so we did.


This is 12 Hour Braised Lamb Shank. I have and will always have a weakness for lamb and mutton. I am sorry but I love to eat my own species. The fact that there are not that many places in Singapore that can make a good lamb shank makes me crave all the more for it. This is braised really well, the meat falls right off the bone without much effort and it was so tender. The mashed potatoes, however,  is anti-climax. They really should work on their mashed potatoes. 


This is Pork Spare Ribs - The Lone Star Classic. This was highly recommended by the waiter, but thought it was only just alright. I am no expert on ribs, so I shall just keep my comments to myself.


This is Green Lipped Muscles. I love the tangy tomato sauce that goes so well with the perfectly cooked (but not overcooked) mussels.


This is Rustic Hand Cut Potatoes with Truffle Oil. I don't remember much about this one, which means it probably is not much of a shocker since it didn't leave an impression on me.


This is Sea Salt & Pepper Squid. The squid is fried to a golden brown and it is delicious, but the sauce was a little too salty for my taste.

The service here is excellent. The lady who welcomed us into the restaurant was all smiles and friendly, and the waiter who attended to us gave good recommendations and attended to our every request with a smile. Now that is what I call service.

I have been meaning to dine there again, but my wallet and schedule has not made it possible so far.

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.
