Poulet (Raffles City)

I have always wanted how French cuisine tastes like. Over the years, the number of French restaurants have been increasing, but French food has always been more expensive than other cuisines, and poor people like me can't afford them. Poulet came into the scene and now even poor folks like me can get to enjoy French food. 


 I like the design of the table-top, I think it's very classy.


Isn't the menu just so pretty? It's simple and elegant, the French definitely have class. 


This is Poulet's signature dish, Poulet Roti with Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce. Oh my god, the chicken is so tender, the meat just fall right off. I am not talking about the thigh meat, I am taking about the breast meat. I personally feel that the Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce is too creamy with the chicken, it gets a little sick towards the end of the meal. I would like to try the new Poulet de Cranberry, I think it might be better suited for my taste. 


Peach Clafoutis is a French-baked dessert served with a half-peach and a generous serving of vanilla ice-cream. It tastes very similar to bread-pudding. I am not sure I really like the peach to be there, but the dessert and vanilla ice-cream combination is heavenly. Vanilla ice-cream just makes everything taste so much better, don't you agree? 

For food of this quality, I would have expected it to be slightly more expensive than other restaurants, and I was willing to pay for the difference, given that it is French food. I was pleasantly surprised at the prices, they are even cheaper than many other Western restaurants. 

The staff are very attentive and responsive. They smile and notice what you need before you even notice yourself. Now, that's what I call service. 

Dining at Poulet is a pleasant experience, both on the stomach and on your wallet.

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.
