Le Kue is located along Haji Lane and the desserts displayed is good enough to make you walk in and take a closer look at it. Yes, it’s that attractive :) As I was waiting for my hair appointment, which is on the same stretch of Haji lane, and I was early, I popped by the cafe to stay away from the heat. However, instead of taking the seats indoor, which is fully air-conditioned, I decided to take the outdoor seat for some people watching as well as enjoying the vibe in the area. I was glad that I made that decision :) As usual, I ordered my favourite latte and it comes in a interesting glass.

Monochrome Fusion Bistro at Chinatown

Last month, after our tiring gym session, we’re so hungry and craving for some good food. Since we’re quite near Chinatown and I’ve seen quite a few good reviews and photos on Instagram about this place, I suggested to visit them for our late lunch, or I would say early dinner? :X It’s not that difficult to locate the place as it’s along the main road, just opposite the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, beside Lomography store. love the interior where it fits nicely with the name of the restaurant. Most of the things you see are in the classic black and white colours. Looking serious selecting on what to have from the menu. :P In the end, we decided to go for the set meal which solve all the issue on what should we have since it covers almost all the best seller there :) Option to choose between coffee or tea, but unfortunately the coffee machine is not working that day, so we both got ourselves tea instead.

Chir Chir 치르치르 Korean Fried Chicken at Somerset 313

I’ve heard quite a few of my friends telling me about this Chir Chir Chicken which serves yummy Korean Fried Chicken, and since there isn’t any queue when we arrived at 5pm, just before the long queue starts to form, we decided to give it a try. I wouldn’t say it’s a very spacious restaurant as most of the seats are quite closely packed. Probably they are trying to save more space for more customers. As it’s our first time there, we are not sure if the food portion is big and how much food we should order. So we decided to get a Salad and a Spicy Chicken to test test first. haha~ Mango Salad ($11.90) was served first. Personally we find the mango salad average and the only thing I like from the salad is the Mango. Not a must to have but good to have if you prefer something less heavy. Next the main! Spicy Wings! with Sweet Potato and Fried Toppoki ($28.90). This got to be our favourite. A combination of spicy and sweetness …

Tian Kee & Cocopy

A Weekend in the Dakota Neighbourhood

Because of the SEA Games’ Nila Run sometime ago, my friend and I headed to Kallang to collect our race packs. We ended up looking for nearby cafes to explore as well. First on our list was the Instagram-famous Tian Kee & Co., followed by the lesser known Brawn & Brains on Guillemard Road. Tian Kee & Co. Converted from an old provision shop, Tian Kee & Co. is located in a quiet corner of Dakota Crescent. Despite the sweltering heat, there were many people there on the day we went. We ordered the rainbow cheesecake, two lattes and a “Half Day Breakfast” to share. Coffee was decent, but what I really love was the rainbow cheesecake. It was light, not gelak like how dense cheesecakes can be. This is their signature dessert. If you head to the café in hot weather, I’ll advise you to eat the rainbow cake fast because it melts into a puddle when it gets warmer! The Half Day Breakfast could be better, though. Both the potatoes and egg weren’t …
