Chicken rendang pasta ($17) was the nicest of the lot. Even though it doesn’t look like there is much, the taste of the rendang was really strong and the chicken was sooo tender!
Fried chicken and waffles ($17) was the absolute worst LOL the chicken was crazy hard and quite burnt. I had so much difficulty trying to bite into it. Waffle was the frozen kind then also came out burnt and so also super hard. Hopefully it’s just a one-off thing.
Peanut butter and jelly cake ($9) was quite nice but got super jelat after awhile. I felt that there was way too much jam and too little peanut butter. And the cake is not the spongy kind but was more moist and hard? Not really my cup of tea or should I say slice of cake HAHA!
Rose latte ($4) I loved this!! This was not overly sweet and it came in a pretty pink colour which is great for pictures.
Iced mocha ($6) came with coffee ice cubes so even if you leave it there throughout the meal it wouldn’t be diluted! They also lined the cup with chocolate so you’d get the best of both worlds.
Really nice interior and friendly staff! Great spot to study or hang out with friends or just chill with a cuppa and some desserts

Location: Knots Cafe and Living
Located just a stone’s throw away from MacPherson MRT Station, Knots Cafe and LIving is a harmony of food, flowers and furniture, all at one cosy space. Having garnered a strong following of loyal customers throughout the years, I’d suggest making an online reservation first before heading down. 1.Salmon Benedict $17.90 2.Fish & Chips (Top Up $2 For Truffle Fries) $15.90 3.Flat White $4.60. Featured are just the pretty standard café fare, nothing much to shout about. But nevertheless, I still enjoyed their well-executed Salmon Benedict!
Location: Warung Ijo
Iberico Hoho Don vs Buta Don
Can’t get enough of the slices of iberico jowl, could really use with a lot more slices! Yum! The additional dish of ikura definitely bring the meal to the next level. Decent yet satisfying meal overall!!
Location: Warung Ijo
They have wide range of interesting menu for vegan & vegetarian. We tried their Sambal Balado Fish, Nasi Padang, Satay Padang & Bakmi Ayam. They also served good coffee, avocoffe & affogato! Love their friendly welcome especially from one of the lady there. Definitely will come again!
Location: Genki Sushi(Orchard Central)
Yes, I’m here mainly to enjoy the train that serve the food. I was here for my meal alone and when every is electronically run, I really had my quiet alone time to enjoy the food without troubling any waiter for services. The prices are pretty reasonable too. Good for eating with friends or family. The quality of the sashimi is generally good and fresh. Love my crabmeat, Yuzu chawamushi. Different from the usual one but if you don’t fancy having yuzu’s taste in a savoury food, then I suggest you stick to the normal one.

1.Smoked Butted Chicken with White Short-Grain Rice( $15 + $2 Iced Lemon Tea) Smoked Chicken & butter tomato sauce. Not so spicy, somehow taste like a gentler version of curry. So generous with the number of chicken I couldn’t finish the whole thing. 8/10
2.Truffle Fries ($10) White truffle olive oil, truffle salt, served with garlic mayo. Can’t really taste the truffle and the salt. But the texture was awesome. 4/10
3.Fried Sesame Chicken with Organic Tri-colored Quinoa and Baby Spinach, add on Half Avocado ($15) Comes with shimeiji mushroom, cherry tomato, broccoli, furikake. Everything fresh, broccoli was tasty, warm quinoa and unique taste of sesame chicken. 9/10
4.Lily Of The Field ($4) Surprisingly good! It’s oolong tea, but I can get a hint of jasmine in the scent. Which is just, awesome. 10/10
5.Homemade Crispy Wings Comes in 6 pieces, served with nacho cheese. If you’re looking for that one appetizier, I would recommend this compared to the truffle fries. Real crispy and saltiness level suits my liking. Also, don’t underestimate the size, actually quite filling. 9/10
Location: Wooloomooloo Steakhouse
4 Course Brunch Meal available on weekends at just $48++ (top up additional $20 for their rib eye steak!). Definitely taste better than what I had at Black Angus but nothing beats Morton’s so far.
Location: ITE (College West)
The restaurant is fully booked for the Chinese New Year, but they still maintain the good flavour and quality of the dishes. However, due to Chinese New Year, the servings of each dish is very slow. We started at 8pm and ended the 8 course meal at 10:30pm. But, the staff did diligently came over to refill the tea. I particularly like the Pork Trotter and the Cereal Creamy Prawn.
Spicy Beef Noodles – $10.90
Banh Xeo – $12.90
The beef noodles wasn’t that spicy, however the portion is quite huge Banh Xeo reminds me of Korean pancake, with ingredients such as minced meat, prawns and bean sprouts. Good for sharing! There’s also lunch sets for $16.90 Really love the interior of this shop too, it’s very quaint and has a very homely vibe to it!
