Met up with Qian before she flies off again on Monday. poor babe got stuck in a jam pre dinner but anyway she found a place to get her fries fix - well these were not potato fries, unfortunately. House (Dempsey) recently launched a few items - in particular non potato fries. This place brings back good memories of truffle fries, sweet potato fries, and of cos the 7 layer pancake right miss Pek ? ;)

Taro fries that was truffle scented ! I'm sure Kelly would love these.

Hazelnut pumpkin fries.. I like the thick batter but Qian sure doesn't ...

I liked the barley salad with the puny bits of crisp fried quinoa... Idea J ? ;)

Mushrooms of all sizes unite in this !
Sure would love to return to House to try the other 2 fries including the carrot one !

La Cantine

From a double date to a triple date, we had our next French grub date at La Cantine at Asia Square. Attempted to go to one raffles place to shop but was dampened by the rain .. Literally !

Headed back and sat at the al fresco area ( the indoors was closed for a private event... Pity )

The highlight was prob the French onion soup with foie gras ( it melted into the soup !). Cod and scallops were a tad small. Also pleased with the sorbet with lotsa lotsa berries ;) Service here was great despite them holding another party indoors. Felt very at home and the hosts were always checking on us.

Next would be the French place at pandan valley !

Yan Ting

Church with grams after waking up early (despite late night show !) and bib class, we headed to Yan ting at St Regis for lunch. Love the spaced out, quiet ambience here. Not too full, surprisingly and there is alot of private space - we were separated from other couples by heavy duty luxe curtains. Food selection was not massive, but we stuck to the same few usual suspects. Again she says she can cook the cod for me at home ;) we are both fans of the chewy Chee cheong fan with scallops. And the mini bowls of porridge was 9 bucks a pop. Gulp.

Had dinner with J's family that night at Imperial Treasure super Peking duck at my suggestion ( after Yi Qian intro us to it ... Hehe) and od on meat +++. Beef, duck, soon hock, but my new Favourite is the pepper prawn vermicilli... Very smokey and peppery I took all of Justin's vermicelli in exchange for my prawns ...

Hand in hand ;)

Malaysia boleh

Recognize the franchises?
Secret recipe brings lotsa good memories of cakes and Japanese soba at Henry park apartments... Giant sponge and cream cakes and the cheese cakes...
Must say the old town white coffee kaya toast is super duper.
And the soy mocha in Starbucks used a different breed of soy from that in sg !
Recent overdose of nandos(fourth in the past months)... Everything I have the extra hot peri peri I'm reminded of the lip burn lol. This was a super dramatic presentation, and in a way cost us our flight back( we missed it ! We were at sogo after kl cc instead of mid valley yet we couldn't make it ..:( )
And of cos... Miss the twister fries...

Future music festival was a blast ! D1 with cosmic gate and armin and aly and fila) (one of them was missing !) and second with temper trap, psy, fun., Andy moor. Missed out on prodigy( who was at our hotel pool earlier!) and bloc party but was still awesome possum;)

Swapped clinic for eot/dot for my first tkr, then to asc for 3 tums(1 of which was a real egg like neurogenic one !), met the girls for some katsu at Saboten, Parco Millenia walk. Unlimited supply of shredded cabbage went fantastically well with the yuzu soya sauce whilst short dressed ( actually drenched lol) hers in sesame sauce. The girls order tenderloin and loin and I had the salmon katsu. Love the breaded croquette but I think the highlight was still the wonderful yuzu soya;) the green tea ice cream that came with the set took forever to melt so didn't manage to finish it :(
Keisuke Tokyo next date ;)
Looks like the tiny bento place that I went with the siblings is now replaced with ma Maison/monster curry :(

Our korner

The end of posting venue was courtesy of checking out the Restaurant Week site during breakfast and fatherhood talk at BS. Our Korner at Scarlet Hotel is a restaurant bar and we sat at the area previously belonging to Desire. Always been wanting to check out the Asian fusion food ( ESP the chili crab stuff) but it always closed too early for supper snacks.

My team loved the quiet ambience ( towards mid dinner we kinda seem to own the place for ourselves ) and the warm wood decor, and it was a great place to catch up- away from the rest of the ruckus at Ann Siang and Club street.

Laksa clam chowder was essentially like an ultra creamy laksa latte. Chilli crab sliders was a favorite, and I liked my crabmeat-soft shell crab-poached egg linguine. Think the poached egg is supposed to substitute the eggy sauce of the chili crab dish. 'twas fun mixing it all up.

But the most stylo dish has gotta belong to C - they torched her smoked duck pizza and it was in flames momentarily. Quite spectacular if you ask me though I am not sure how searing it this way adds to the taste of the pizza. A's crusted lamb chops looked super impressive too, the size and plating.

Ended with the chocolate tart which was quite a substantial , gao portion. Pity this place looked empty on a Friday night ( though the bar was filled ). Good food and ambience and great for big group catch ups. Would love a drink on the rooftop bar someday ;)
