Dont you just love brunching at CBD area on a weekend? So empty and parking is so effortless

SPRKMRKT is an airy bright cafe featuring a small retail space (with super overpriced cutlery and kitchenware I must say)

Overall I found brunch here to be disappointing but maybe I just ordered the wrong stuff?


Curly fries was tasty (and what a huge portion!) but tad too oily and salty after awhile


Eggs benedict



and poached egg with corned beef hash

Both egg dishes were slightly underdone and tasted ok, somewhat lackluster. Would also prefer a bun instead of mashed potatoes, the overall effect of the dish was just too lacking in crunch for me. (no the tiny bits of croutons didnt help)

Ah Chiang's Porridge


Theres nothing I like more on a cold evening than a bowl of minced pork congee and runny egg. Twirling the yellow yolk in your porridge till it partially cooked then scooping everything in your mouth mmm... Ah Chiang porridge was pretty good, creamy just the way I like it


The raw fish was disappointing though. Not well seasoned and came in a pathetically tiny portion; I guess I am too used to the awesome portions at Hoe Kee

Group Therapy Cafe

I am so glad that there are more and more cafes popping up in the east (although as of writing this, I am no longer staying in the east but the north-east fml)

I like Group Therapy at Katong V because it is not overly crowded (plus you get to wait in the comfortable air-conditioned mall, rather than at the sides of a street) and has a nice cozy vibe.


My luscious eggs ben came drowned in hollandaise sauce and with several generous slices of smoked salmon mmmm 


Another smoked salmon breakfast (less sinful but not as shiok)

Coffee here was decent as well. Some how the cakes here dont look too appealing though, usually I am unable to resist getting a slice but here, nah..

Fat Cow

If you are still on the fence about whether to get the Entertainer App, get it because of Fat Cow.
 Where steaks can go for as high as $288, the Entertainer App that gives you 1 for 1 offers on all main course is super worth it. Put it this way, the discount received from a meal at Fat Cow more than covers what you paid for for the app.


At the counter, watching the chef fire up our orders. It was fun watching the chefs cook and horrified when they sliced away large chunks of meat from cuts of steak and threw them away (probably cos not acceptable quality but those are Wagyu bits, I will gladly eat them!)


Starting the meal with a cocktail, this had champagne in it and went down easy.

Crab cakes which I love ordering at steak houses. This was decent but the ones at Morton's kick its ass.

BBQ eggplant with miso. Too much miso makes for a too salty appetizer


Finally. The star of the show - this was the half cut grade 4 ribeye (look at the fat!)

Served with tomatos and some sauce which you need not bother with.
The beef was tender, melt-in-your-mouth buttery good


Pair it with fat rice - steamed rice seasoned with wagyu beef sauce.
Seriously good rice. I am not fan of plain white rice but this entire bowl, yup I can eat it on its own just like that.


Innards shot. Perfectly medium rare. So good.

The Lokal

Somehow the food at the Lokal just taste healthier, I love it! Ok maybe because most of the food is done inhouse, like the smoked salmon which was fantastic.

We pimped our own breakfast and went with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, spinach, bacon and pumpernickel. Every single item was delicious, esp that smoked salmon. No as salty and stringy as those store-bought ones, you got to try it.

The chicken salad topped with avocado and bacon was really good too, basically we wolfed down the food in seconds lol

Roasted beef on rye sandwich came stuffed with delicious sweet onions and tasty beef.

I am quite bored with the usual branch places serving the usual eggs ben and waffles so the Lokal manages to give brunch a more unique twist. One of the better places to breakfast, will definitely be back.

Day & Night (Previously Two Face)

So I came here when it was called Two Face but apparently it has since closed and reopened with a different name (but similar food and concept, huh?)

Pretty ingenious concept I must say - coffeeshop in the day, pizza joint at night and transformed simply via black chalk boards covering the other stalls whilst doubling up as the specials menu.


Smoked duck pizza came with delicious silvers of duck meat and soft sweet garlic. Tasty! Though I wished there was more meat.


Har Cheong Gai was decent but give me the original at zhi char stalls anytime.
