First Wedding Anniversary at Pidgin

Just how time flies. 13th February 2014, the most important day in my life.

Being together for 5 years, I am truly blessed with all the love and support from W. He have been the pillar of strength in times of need. It have been a truly blessed journey with him although our journey wasn’t the easiest.

We had a simple dinner at Pidgin Kitchen & Bar after work and it was fantastic! The fusion of food served enticed our taste buds, especially the Quail Egg Maguro Mix and Uni Angel Hair Pasta! ♥14948_10152772030497746_3566404363772341255_n

Twentyfour on the 25th

I have turned twentyfour on the 25th of November! The Saturday dinner with W. He made everything right, from the restaurant location, to the gift. Everything touches my heart on the right notes.  It was a fantastic dinner at The Clan Restaurant, and highly recommended for any celebrations may it be birthdays, anniversary or just any special occasion! The food is good and relatively affordable as compared to other fine dining places.

Few highlight dishes for the night;

One of the cold dished we ordered was The Alaskan king crab with homemade karashi dressing, this simply fresh and succulent.

Crab Bisque Cappuccino & Prawn Twister, personally thought this was a interesting concept to serve soup from a wine glass. Love the thick texture of the soup!

Another soup we had was Cepes Mushroom w Truffle Paste, savoring the bits of mushrooms with truffle paste. Heaven.

The rich and delicious Herb Crusted Mushroom Escargot was a perfect match together.

A very unique taste of the Foie Gras Terrine w Focaccia & Lychee Crumbs, it was uniquely special. It wasn’t like the conventional pan fried foie gras, tasted like cheese fusion.

Another main we had was The Kurobuta pork jowl in pistachio puree with pickled zucchini & 64 degree egg yolk. The egg was cooked to perfection and oozed over the pork.

What catch my love for The Clan’s Restaurant were the 48 hours Beef short ribs on Hoba Leaf with Lava Stone. The meat is absolutely tender and I love the aroma of the Hoba Leaf was infused into the meat.

The cake and the perfect dinner companion. We paid about $69.80++ per pax for a 6 course dinner. To sum up, I had an awesome meal with a fantastic price.

All about Egg Benedict

I am an avid lover of eggs and tend to look out for places that serve the best egg benedicts! It is definitely a MUST HAVE for every brunch session. I love how the yolk always ooze out from the egg whites, heh! After exploring a few places, I am here to give my humble opinion;

1. Canopy Garden Dining & Bar

canopy

Portion was tad small for the prices paid. Like what you see, is what you get. Would prefer if they would add on an additional side to this plain-looking Egg Benedict and improve the taste overall. Eggs a little watery, salad a little plain. But the dinning environment was pretty awesome especially after an early workout in Bishan Park! Definitely a good hide-out or weekend brunch place if you wish to skip the buzzling town or are looking for somewhere with tranquility.

Verdict : Mediocre food standard and service couple up with an awesome dining environment

2. Hatched

425671_10150595548762746_1453329555_nHatched serve one of the best Egg Benedict, in my opinion! Love their cute website and menus! (Ham looked char because of the editing filter) The eggs were cooked perfectly to taste. With the additional side, brunch like this is definitely filling. The outlet at Evans Lodge is really small and customers were asked to seat around the apartment lobby area. It’s not too “pretty” for any photos to be taken unless you are seated in the cafe itself.

Verdict : Waiting time is slightly longer if you are heading Evans Lodge branch, but the food is worth the wait 🙂

3. Choupinette

The best egg benedict in Singapore. The delectable and yummy taste for a hearty breakfast still tingle in my taste buds. Instant pleasure at looking at the picture! Almost perfect. Choupinette serves other bakery and desserts like ice cream, tarts and macrons as well. Heh, it is also one of the most expensive brunch I ever had.

Verdict: A little out of town, a little on the high side but it serve the best egg benedict! What say you?

Located near the neighbourhood of Serangoon, Arbite’s Egg Benedict is one of the most wallet-friendly around. I like how their Egg Benedict taste really clean, with the light-tasting hollandaise sauce making the overall really healthy tasting. Adding on would be my favourite sauteed mushrooms, portion was good enough for two!

Verdict: A hidden gem around Serangoon, a quick-fix brunch that’s wallet friendly and definitely worth every cent of your money!

One of the most highly raved place on the list, Wild Honey. Famous for their breakfast/brunch dining, it is always fully booked especially on the weekends. The beautifully yolk laying on the curled ham, make everyone salivates upon looking! Food appearance is definitely a 9.5/10. I love it as the texture of the bread compliment the overall taste, which I personally feels it’s one of the important factor Wild Honey stands out. Awww.. look at the runny yolk! *glups*

Verdict: Food price slightly on the high side, but conveniently located in town and the cozy environment to sit in. Love the huge variety of breakfast choices too!
