A French Royal High-tea with Délifrance Award-winning Heritage Croissant

Delifrance was a constant presence in shopping malls when I was growing up, even before the onslaught of hipster cafes and coffee joints. Even now, I am still a big fan of their madeleines, which I like to dunk in milk before eating. I also remember their croissants, which I will always order with either egg or tuna mayo! Last Saturday, I attended a tea party organised by Delifrance to launch their new Heritage Croissant, which will be replacing the butter croissant from now on. I was quite wowed by the taste of the croissant – super buttery and fluffy! As you can see from the tags, the new Heritage Croissant has won three stars in the Superior Taste Award from the International Taste and Quality Institute. During the test, it was complimented for being a genuine top-quality croissant with a splendid taste, delicate with a nice tasty finish.

Carvers & Co along East Coast Road

Looks like Katong is getting more and more vibrant nowadays with cafes, pubs, massage parlour, shopping malls and hotel. One of the cafe that caught my attention got to be Carvers & Co. They served different menus on weekdays and weekends for both lunch and dinner. So there’s something different whenever you visit the cafe on different days ;) Menus are pasted onto old books which is a good way to recycle them. Deep fried sweet potato chips which can get so addictive… Anchovy Pasta Beer battered fish and chips Dark chocolate tart served with ginger nut and fresh cream which I think is really good ;) Not forgetting to order a cup of latte brewed with beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters. Or you can choose to grab a bottle of beer to go with the roast meats, their signatures.

Frankel Ave? Where is it at? That’s the first question that I asked my friend when he told me about visiting this cafe at Frankel Ave. It’s actually located at Siglap and it’s accessible by bus. So here we are at Dutch Colony Coffee Co. The moment i step into the cafe, other than going WOW~ the other thing that came across my mind was it looks a little similar to Wimbly Lu, with the extension at the back covered with a glass rooftop with daylight lighting.

An Epicurean Journey through India Menu at Punjab Grill

If given a choice to choose from, I would usually go for either the western, chinese, japanese, thai and korean cuisine while indian cuisine would probably be the last in my list. After a tasting session at Punjab Grill, I guess it’s not going to be the same anymore! Dining at Punjab Grill is like taking an epicurean journey through Indian’s richly diverse Northwest Frontier Province – the undivided Punjab region, where the source of inspiration for their menus come from. Love the overall ambience and decor and you may not notice that you’re actually dining in a Indian restaurant. Not to worry if you have a big group as there’s long tables available. Let’s move on to the food! We started off with the Smoked Tandoori Duck Shorba Laced with Burnt Garlic Oil. It’s really interesting to have soup in a Indian restaurant as I supposed it’s not common? I love the soup and it’s really good. Rich and savoury with the burnt garlic aroma, perfect! For our appetizers, we have, starting from the left,  the Pan …
