So I finally had a relaxing morning to help myself to the breakfast menu at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
I ordered Brek 'O' Day that consisted of scrambled eggs, toasts, salad and sausages. What a class combination. It even comes with a cup of premium coffee.
The pleasure of sitting down at a cafe and taking your time with my breakfast helps determine the quality of my life.
Although the food give you a feel that it is prepared before-hand, it does not taste that way. The salad was really fresh, not too sour and is a really refreshing addition to the others on the plate. I had my toast with butter topped with the scrambled eggs. The combination is simply delightful.
You can even re-fill your coffee till 11am!
The set costs only $7.70. Good value!

My mum recommended me to try out this yong tau foo that she has been eating at least once every week when she is working at Raffles Place. What makes it special are the unique ingredients/dishes that you can pick from. Most of them are fried ones which I think are made by the owner(s) as I have never seen most of them before. Aside from the uniqueness, the flavour of these supposedly home-made dishes packs a punch in the mouth. This is unlike those regular ones where there is only plain simple fish paste.
The portion is also incredibly huge. A pig skin that I picked is about 2-3 times the size of those you see outside and the owner only charges 40 cents a piece. I barely finished my big bowl of noodles that costs only $3.50.
I would recommend everyone who likes Yong Tau Foo to try out this famous stall at Golden Shoe Hawker Centre. It is beside Raffles Place MRT and is easily accessible. I did not take down the stall name but if you want to find it, just go to the 3rd floor and look for the stall at the corner of a row of stalls.
Went on another regular outing with my friends and decided to head to Timbre for some drinks and food. I liked the ambiance, the music and of course the food.
We ordered the Italian pizza (recommended by staff) and the duck pizza (famous).
First of all, the serving was huge. Three of us shared two pizzas but still could not finish. Personally, I don't really like the duck pizza although its unique. I feel that to bring out the flavour of duck, there must be a good deal of duck fats (skin). However, I only found duck meat on the pizza which did not give the pizza that 'duck' taste. The only thing that helped was the presentation. The pizza was covered in spring roll skin which was rather special.
I find the Italian Pizza average, not much to comment on other than the nice crispy base.
The drinks I had were of good quality. Although I'm not yet qualified to critic wine, I could say that the wine they serve are of good quality and really pleasant to the senses.
The only setback is the below-average service. At one instance, one of the staff totally forgot to bring me a glass of ice water that I requested so I had to call for another one.
In conclusion, Timbre is a nice place to chill out with friends and even family at really reasonable prices.
This is the first time I tried this anywhere. Actually I didn't see anyone eating this before. The shopkeeper had to ask me several times to make sure that I am ordering this dish.
"really ar...? squid with noodles. this one right?" x3
I wasn't disappointed with this dish. The cold noodles were alright accompanied with a little sesame oil. It tasted even better with kimchi and anchovies; well... everything else does. A combination of warm squid and cold noodles made my dinner a little special this evening.
