Wimbly Lu Chocolates

Address: 166 Tyrwhitt Rd, Singapore 207570.

It is my second visit to this cafe which is located near to Lavender MRT stations and closely nearby to other famous cafes such as Chye Seng Huat Hardware and VXX Cooperative at Foch Road.

It was an unusual evening for my friend to off work before 7pm for her shift. She called for dinner and I suggested to meet up at Lavender MRT station. I brought her to this quiet cafe which I discovered with my colleagues days ago.

She ordered the Cottage Pie and I ordered the Aglio Olio with Bacon for myself. She liked it. I liked mine too. Simple, small portion and delicious. It allows us to have some snacks or desserts after the main course. That is the main purpose.

We ordered the fried sweet potato as snacks. It looked like overly fried when it was served. The lighting at the cafe at night it slightly dark and it may not be suitable to take great pictures of the food.

The atmosphere in the cafe at night is slightly noisy than the afternoon time as there are more people visiting the cafe, however, it is a great place to have dinner for two, chill out with couple of friends, enjoy the music and the cozy environment.

So, if you are planning to bring your date out, do consider this cafe for a good dinner without burning your wallet.

Wimbly Lu Chocolates

Address: 166 Tyrwhitt Rd, Singapore 207570.

After a Vietnamese lunch nearby this cafe, my three colleagues and myself wanted to have something sweet for the day and we ended up at this cafe, Wimbly Lu Chocolates.

The location of the cafe is surrounding by those budget hotels and other famous cafes such as Chye Seng Huat Hardware, Tiramisu Hero and VXX Cooperative which is located at Foch Road and it is not far from the Lavender MRT station.

We ordered the Lemon Meringue Pie and the Waffle with Single Scoop Ice Cream. I could not remember the name of the ice cream but they do have have rum and raisin ice cream as they serve alcohol.

The crispy and hot waffle topped with chocolate syrup and a scoop of our choice of ice cream, which tastes similarly to the butter cookies is really nice and satisfying. I just feel I want more waffles!

For the beautifully presented Lemon Meringue Pie, it is mild sweet, just nice and acceptable. We liked both of our desserts.

The atmosphere in the cafe during our visit was quiet and there was just a few people only. Low noise, cozy, and relaxing ambiance. I almost wanted to apply work from home but continue to stay in this cafe to do work. I am not sure if Wi-fi is provided, maybe can check it out next visit.

It is definitely a place to be recommended.

Lang Nuong Vietnam

Lang Nuong Vietnam, Foch Road, Singapore.
Address: 18 Foch Rd, Singapore 209260.

Another try of the Vietnamese food at this authentic Vietnamese restaurant which is located at Foch Road, next to VXX Cooperative cafe and the famous pig organ soup shop.

The setting of the restaurant is authentic with low height’s tables and chairs. They are famous for Vietnamese BBQ. During lunch time visit, there is no people around except my colleagues and myself. I think they are doing night business more than the afternoon session.

The beef pho has the almost equal quality with the beef pho at Mrs. Pho. The soup broth is good but they added some pepper into the soup, it gave extra kick. I am not sure whether it is original.

The noodle and ingredients are generous, the price is same as Mrs. Pho and if want to compare with Mrs. Pho, perhaps, Mrs. Pho will be the better choice for me.

Hawker Food

Recently I have been trying a few of the hawker food and I would like to share some of them here.

Kang Le Fried Prawn Noodle, Changi Village Hawkers Centre, Singapore.
Address: 2 Changi Village Rd, Singapore 500002.
The hawker centre is full with people during my visit on one sunny Saturday after my marathon. When I approached this food stall, there were six plates of fried prawn noodle in queue. The cook prepared all the fried prawn noodle at one go for seven portion including mine. At first, I am a bit worries about the quality of the fried noodle because he cooks in big portion. When the fried noodle is served, they put the chili paste and it is superb as per said by auntie, his wife. She said the chili paste is homemade and she even told the foreigner the chili paste is better than other chilies.   I’m not sure if it is home made or not.

Kway Teow Soup, Eastlink Food Court, Tampines, Singapore.
Address: 8 Tampines Central 1, Singapore 529543.
Although I feel its slightly pricey for a bowl of noodle which some minced meat, fish cakes and fish balls, I feel satisfied for having a bowl of hot soup after a long day in the cold office. The soup broth tastes normal in the beginning and as it cooled off, I am able to taste the sweetness of the soup broth. I almost finished the soup. The uncle cooks with care as how I see him cooking for the first two customers.

The Western Co, Singapore.
Address: 30 Foch Rd, Singapore 209276.
Our colleague wanted to try this food stall which offers TWC Raclette Chicken which waited for an hour. The making process is more interesting than the chicken itself. The amount of cheese on top of the chicken chop is just right, however, the overall taste does not really match or blend well.

Yew Chuan Claypot Rice

Yew Chuan Claypot Rice At Beach Road Hawker Centre.
After a jogging session with some of my colleagues, we decided to stop by at the newly reopened food court, the Golden Mile Food Court at Beach Road for our dinner. We went around the food court and we settled down at this stall, Yew Chuan claypot rice.

I let my colleague to order the claypot while the rest of us look for table and ordered drink. The waiting time for the claypot rice to be ready seem quite long even though I do not see many customers around.

Well, good food is worth to wait. We conquered the whole claypot rice which comes with generous amount of ingredients such as chicken meat, some salted fish, Chinese sausages, vegetable and I couldn’t recall the name of the black colored sausage. I added some black sauce, mixed them around and let the ingredients’ essence immersed into the rice before start eating them.

Address: Golden Mile Food Court, Beach Road, Singapore.

Diandin Leluk Thai Restaurant

Diandin Leluk Thai Restaurant, Golden Mile Complex, Singapore. 
Sometimes ago, I went to search for restaurants that serve nice, authentic and reasonable price for Thai food in Golden Mile Complex after my friends suggested to meet up there. I short-listed the Nong Khai Beer House and Diandin Leluk Thai Restaurant and suggested my friends to look for a table in either one of these restaurants. They selected Nong Khai instead. During my next visit to the Golden Mile Complex, I decided to try Diandin Leluk to check out their food with my cousin.

Mango Salad is one of the first dishes that we ordered. It is appetizing because of the sourness from the mango salad sauce and the green mango itself. They put a bit red chili so it is a bit spicy. If not mistaken Nong Khai’s waiter asked my friend before how spicy we wanted our mango salad last time 🙂

The green milk tea taste is just right, not too sweet and not too strong milk tea. As the ice melt, the drink maintains it tastes. Meanwhile, my cousin told me her lemongrass drink is boiled mild lemongrass water and added syrup. 😦

Next, the clear tom yam soup with seafood is served. It looks pretty good, right? It is generous with ingredients such as fish, squids, prawns and vegetables such as mushroom, tomato, red onions and lemongrass. My first sip of the tom yam soup is a little disappointed because it tastes salty. Where is the hot and sour favours?

The Pad Thai and Hot Basil Chicken Rice are served. The presentation of both food is not really appealing especially my hot basil chicken rice with a fried egg and my photo is not well taken and I am not able to share it here. The taste for both the Pad Thai and the rice are just normal and plenty of improvement is needed because I tried the hot basil chicken rice served by 7-11 in Pattaya and it tasted better than this one.

Two Bakers

Two Bakers, Lavender, Singapore.
Again, I revisited this cafe after the last Christmas visit with two other friends. Wow, I cannot imagine it has been so long since my last visit. During my second visit, I went with another friend and we targeted to have more for dessert and shared one main course. Okay, these are what we tried during the visit:-

Bagel with bacon, egg, hash brown and salad with special sauce. And, I forgot the name of this sandwich. ^^ Anyway, our main desserts are these two beauties in which both of us caught in first sight.

The Matcha Swiss Roll contains strong green tea taste which I feel slightly overdo. First few bites are great but when the green tea taste covers all over my mouth, I need to find other things to balance out.

Here is the next dessert we ordered:-

The pear almond pie. The pie isn’t sweet, taste just right and nicely presented.
Address: 88 Horne Road, Singapore.
