Outback Steakhouse

I have heard of Outback Steakhouse ever since I started working at K N Chin & Associates because Millennia Walk is just opposite Suntec City Mall, which is where I work. I have heard of many positive reviews from colleagues and friends but I was too poor then, but now I finally have a little spare money to indulge myself.


I was a little surprised when they gave me this breadboard, but this is so good! The wheat bread is still very warm, I am not sure if it is freshly baked but it definitely feels like it from the temperature. It is so soft and moist, it tastes so good with the melted butter. This should be the way to start a good meal.



This is a steakhouse so their speciality must be steak, I ordered Outback Special 13OZ (medium rare) with side dishes of baked potato and seasonal vegetables. The beef is really cooked to perfection, the meat is tender and so good. The baked potato is really really good. It is very moist and soft, add on some sour cream and bacon bits and this is easily one of the best backed potato I have eaten so far.


I couldn't decide on which dessert, so I decided to go with the Sweet Adventure Sampler Trio where I get to try three of the desserts in one go. The three are (from left to right) Banana Cake, Classic Cheesecake and Chocolate Thunder From Down Under. The Banana Cake and Chocolate Thunder From Down Under are basically the same with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream drizzled with chocolate sauce and finished off with a scoop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings - it is a little too sweet. The Classic Cheesecake is a big let down. It is too dense that is actually taste a little bitter and the raspberry sauce is too sweet, they just don't match.

Just the breadboard, steak and baked potato is more than enough to make me come back again and again. The price here is a little more expensive, but I feel that the food is worth every penny (except the desserts) and I am more than willing to fork out extra money for a good meal.

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.
