Nana's Green Tea


Definitely more of a dessert place than anything else. The savoury dishes were edible at best, rice a tad too tough ( blasphemy for Japanese food!) and too much sauce on my sushi! 









Best thing was the parfait. So glad we made room in our tummy for this. Layers of ice cream, corn flakes, mochi and red bean

Revisit : Fatboy's


Back at Fatboy's, this time for a more adventurous burger.




The Elvis - Bacon stuffed pork patty with bananas, peanut butter, honey oat bun.
Weird combi but strangely pretty good. Somehow the honey oat bun tied everything up neatly.

Revisit :Lots Gourmet Cafe


Back at my favorite cafe in the East. Its great to be able to indulge in a good eggs benedict without having to travel all the way to central/west area. 






Loving the portobello fries. Thick cut juicy strips of mushrooms paired with mayo, mmm


Eggs ben served on crusty bread, simple and good.

Beo Crescent Curry Rice


So I was brought to this sleepy old housing estate just off Tiong Bahru for the best curry scissors rice ever. Ok caveat, this was actually my first time eating curry scissors rice so I dont really have anything to compare against but hey I have eaten curry, rice and pork before right. 




Star of the day was this crispy crunchy pork pieces. Wonderfully spiced and seasoned and biting it yield a satisfying crunch. 



And the rest of our table ( the wu xiang was an add-on from another story) 
What I loved besides the pork - the lovely fragrant curry, the cabbage and runny sunny side egg (so perfect with the curry soaked rice)



And another one from the side.

Be prepared to queue but hey damm worth it

Revisit: 40 Hands


Having visited so many cafes, 40 hands still remains one of my favourites. 


Coffee here is still wonderfully fragrant, rich and just the right amount of acidity 


And of course the salmon hash with fries. So good that all of us got the exact same dish. Cubes of salmon coated in the rich decadent cream sauce, I love dipping the fries in it.

Prive Cafe





I personally feel that the standards at Prive has dropped dramatically, sure it has a nice view but given  its price-point, you would expect something better, especially with the intense cafe competition. The traditional big breakfast was very average, feels like something one can whip up at home. The baked eggs were basically raw eggs in tomato sauce and when we asked the waitress we were told "they are like this" ok...if you say so


Tried the Japanese purple sweet potato and miso chiffon cake, def a strange combination and an acquired taste ( as in I was the only one who liked it)

One Man Coffee


Day off for wedding prep = cafe scouting!
We drove past upper thomson road several times trying to find One Man Coffee, turns out they share a storefront with Crust Pizza Bar and that was the only sign we saw, get a bigger sign please!


Coffee was rich and fragrant, just the way I like it


Loving the presentation of breakfast. Yes true hipster at heart, I like eating off wooden blocks
Gashouse egg is essentially toast, cheese and a gooey runny egg in the middle. Simple but oh so delicious, esp when paired with that bacon jam.

Big breakie features poached egg on spinach, several cherry tomatoes and ham on bread. It looks quite healthy as far as big breakfast goes. I love how generous they are with the tomatoes.


And the much raved about Brioche French toast. Maybe I had too high expectations but I didn't think they were fantastic, a bit too soggy for me though I liked the berry compote. 

Overall, I like this place + everything was reasonably priced (<$15). Quite a small place though I imagine finding seats must be a nightmare during the weekend. 



Took a detour to the nearby reservoir. Singapore can be so pretty!
