Marche

It has been a long while since I last ate at Marche, I decided to have lunch there when I was there to run some errands.

Marche is a Switzerland restaurant with an interesting way of giving each diner a Marche Guest Card. You just give your card to the counter after ordering your food and you make payment for your meal at the exit. It gives people more time to decide and seeing the food being prepared right before your eyes gives you the assurance that everything is fresh.

I decided to start my meal with a bowl of Cream of Mushroom .


It is more thick than creamy. It is delicious, but I do wish it has a slightly stronger taste.


For mains, I had Mushroom Crepe. The crepe is made fresh upon order, the mushrooms have been sautéed beforehand. The crepe is ready, first is creme sauce, and then a generous amount of cheese, add on the mushrooms and some fresh vegetables, fold the crepe and cut in half - it's done! Eat it with the creme sauce provided (I always ask for at least two extra cups) and it tastes absolutely divine.  


For drinks, I wanted something light and refreshing, so I opted for a glass of Calamansi with Sour Plums (Calamansi is basically lime juice). It is exactly as I wanted it, light and refreshing. 


A meal is not complete with dessert, at least that's how I feel. I actually wanted something else for dessert, but a lady with a tray of Fruit Cake came to my table and asked if I wanted a piece. The Fruit Cake looks so pretty, I decided to take one. 
The fruits are very fresh and juicy, there's no sign of oxidation at all, so I believe it was freshly made. However, I do wish the sponge cake at the bottom could be softer and creamier. 

I used to love Marche, and I still do. It's difficult to keep the quality of the food consistently so good all through the years, but Marche has managed to do exactly that.

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.
