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. Instead of having the B&W Chorizo …

GastroSmiths, so far the Best Food served in the Cafe

Gastrosmiths was known as The Humble Loaf, which used to be located at B1 of Katong Shopping Centre which i didn’t visit before. Previously serving mainly simple sandwiches, cakes and coffee, Gastrosmiths is currently located along Beach Road and Tan Quee Lan St, serving dishes and desserts with a slant towards French, Italian and Japanese influences. I guess it’s one of the longest time we spent browsing through the menu, though there’s only one A4 page, but every single item on the menu looks soo damn good! We’re really having a hard time deciding on which to order. SO, we grab hold of the super friendly, and cute waiter for his recommendation. I must say, I love his recommendation as they’re all so good! while waiting for the food, let me take a selfie :P This is one really unique mains that we had for the night.

carvers & Co cafe along east coast road katong

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. Carvers & Co is a cosy-bistro cafe, with the intention of encouraging parties and groups of people to connect over hearty meals and comfort food. So probably you might want to try this place for your next …

Supply & Demand @ OrchardGateway

Not long ago, my friends decided to bring me out for dinner as I was kinda down and they brought me to this restaurant hidden in a corner at the newly opened Orchardgateway, Supply & Demand. From what my friend to me, it’s not easy to get a seat there as it’s always full and you need to make reservations online. If not, be prepared to queue up to more than an hour for a seat. We’re lucky as we didn’t wait for long, approx 20 mins on that day, though my friend made a booking online and only to know that he booked the wrong date LOL!

We settled down for lunch at PappaRich as it’s the only restaurant open with local food. Most of the restaurants there are selling western food, more like a chillax place with beer and wine.
