Chong Qing Chicken Pot Bugis Food Junction

With the rise of the foreign population, we are blessed with the introduction of their local cuisine into the country and further adds to the diversity of variety we have here.  No longer do we need to dine in expensive restaurant to have a taste of Chong Qing, now you can enjoy a good Chong Qing Chicken Pot at affordable prices in a food court.  How cool is that?   Chong Qing cuisine has a characteristics of being spicy and numbing to the tongue.  There has been a proliferation of fragrant hot pot, but this Chicken Pot is something extra with that extra oomph!  The menu here has origins that was created by legendary “Ji Gong” or crazy monk and hails from the city of Chong Qing that is widely regarded as having the best cuisines in China.

CAD Cafe 23 Haji LaneIt was quite some time back that I visited CAD Café with my friend.  It took us a little effort to locate the café that was in a small alley of Kampung Bahru District.  Cafés are plenty around the area, but they seem to be a little understated as compared to the Tiong Bahru café.  Check the list of café at the end of the entry.

CAD is a very small and cosy café with just two or three tables within the café interior but you can sit alfresco style outside.  Even so, tables are few.  But I like how the café is, serving some honest breakfast, sandwiches and meals.  The coffee is awesome, the kind which you know they took effort to make every cup of coffee to your satisfaction.  CAD stands for Coffee, Art & Design.  The founders of the café have background in Art & Design, with equal passion for coffee.  Expect to see art pieces from renowned international artist to local upcoming and student work.

Hakata Ikkousha Japanese Ramen Restaurant Shio Tonkotsu

For those who love Japanese ramen, Hakata Ikkousha is not an unfamiliar name.  Emerging as Singapore’s Ultimate Ramen Champion in 2011 and defending champion in 2012, Hakata Ikkousha has braved on to open a standalone eatery at Tanjong Pagar in December 2013.  Despite the competitive Japanese ramen landscape in Singapore, it marched on to open its second outlet at the charming CHIJMES, providing an unparalleled Japanese ramen experience with its signature favourites.

Tolida Espresso Nook Breakfast

Tolido’s Espresso Nook is one of the café that opens around the area of Bugis/Beach Road.  Located at one of the shop house at Textile Centre, this quaint little café is a humble and non-pretentious café that serves good coffee and value meals.  I got acquainted to the café because of many beautiful latte art at instagram.

Mikuni Japanese Fairmont Hotel Grill

Amongst all the cuisine in the world, the one that I personally love the most would probably be Japanese.  I like the simplicity and freshness in a Japanese cuisine and; in a high end Japanese restaurant; there is great showmanship in how your dish is presented to you.  That’s what you get at Mikuni, a Japanese restaurant that is tucked away at the third floor of Fairmont Hotel, adjoining to Raffles City Shopping Centre.  I was treated to Mikuni Grand Tasting Tour Course, a delightful sampling of 7 course Japanese dinner priced at $220 which my friend and I continue to adore till this day.
