I eat too much for my own good. But I guess it’s also in part due to my work – it makes me hungry easily since I have to run after children a lot.
If ever there’s a sin I’m highly guilty of, it’s gluttony. Food is so good.. But I need to resist it.
I was on leave on a Friday in early March, to rush out assignments. I was having a serious craving for the pasta base at Toss and Turn, so I decided to just make a journey down to Ion Orchard for it. That’s how crazy I can get when it gets to food sometimes – I don’t mind traveling just for good food!
Jem and I drove over to Jack’s Place at West Coast after he finished work that same day I was on leave. That place is old school and has been there for so many years, but yet there’s something about the location that I love. It might be the fact that there’s usually not a lot of people there in general, but to me I think that’s what makes the place so peaceful somehow. Sharing steaks while sitting next to each other (rather than opposite) is really heartwarming. There’s nothing like a good steak to kick off Friday on a good note 🙂
Here’s bringing you slices of rainbow cake and red velvet cake from W39! We didn’t really think about cafe-hopping, but we were so near there after dinner at Jack’s Place, and I was telling Jem about rainbow cakes in general and casually mentioned that W39 had it, so we decided to stop by there for dessert 🙂
In honesty, I think rainbow cake looks nicer than it tastes.. Or maybe it’s just me who hasn’t found the right kind of rainbow cake that would strike the perfect note for me. And I’m a sucker for red velvet and cream cheese – this combination will never go wrong no matter what!
And when Jem and I were looking through the menu in general, we found that their main courses were quite reasonable priced, and I told him about how their brunch is a good deal cheaper than other cafes – how often can you get a full breakfast set at only $13.90!?

This was MEDZ at Millenia Walk with Li Ying, cos I ended my class at 1pm and I didn’t have to go back to work.. So being free in the afternoon for the first time in almost half a year, I texted her and asked her if she wanted to meet up.. And we were good to go! They have 1-for-1 student deals on weekdays and we made it in time for it 😀 Thank God for us still having our matric cards 😀
Cherie, Shi Hui and I hit Crust at Holland V on a Monday night after work, and we had salmon, cajun chicken, (Moroccan?) lamb and another that I just can’t remember. They were in half-and-half style, which makes it more worth it for sharing. The salmon one was really good! And overall it was therapeutic to have some girl company on a Monday night after work – not something we get to have very often because we’re always so busy.

A night out where we had a really huge Korean BBQ dinner. We ordered dubboki (rice cake) and when it came, our jaws dropped because of its epic proportion – I had no idea Koreans really went big with the dubboki! Talk about go hard or go home, literally. And their beef and pork were mouthwatering and succulent 😀
Stupid me didn’t take note of the name of the place, but it’s at the very end of the long stretch of eateries at Cheong Chin Nam Road (think Al-Ameen and Al-Azhar). The interior of the place was cozy, and not too crowded despite being a Sunday night at the time when we went there 🙂
Okay enough of foodporn. Posting food pictures only makes me hungry! :p
