Prince Coffee House: Careful, that plate might be older than you!
Coffee Houses were all the rage back in the 70′s. Those were the days when “Western” food simply meant steak with baked beans and potato chips. The good old Coffee House is a term that you seldom hear of nowadays. I think for many Singaporeans of my generation, the term “Coffee House” would conjure up […]
Roadhouse: The 1 kg Terminator: Finish it and it’s on the House!
The Terminator! $48 to take up the challenge Look, its hard to be a foodie and a doctor at the same time. People often ask me how a doctor can be a foodie. As if insurance agents never go sky diving. I do struggle at times between the need to feed and preserving the wealth […]
Macaroon Snowman Can’t believe how time flies. I first wrote about Gobi Dessert back in 2007, since then, they have opened a store at Central where they were for 3 years and now they are back in the Katong area in a shophouse in Joo Chiat! I have been looking at Gobi Desserts again because […]
Reviewed by Damien The Chocolate Travona Cakes ($28.80/500gm and $56.80/1kg) First established in the far eastern enclave of Changi Village, the proprietors of Chef Icon heeded the calls of their regulars to centralize their operations and moved closer to the CBD. I’m extremely glad they did. Now nestled in a quaint conservation shophouse along Kampong […]
This Stall is Closed Orange Ciabatta $2.70, Teh Si $1.40 Our good friend Liverpool has opened his brand new Cafe over at Robinson Road. The kakis went down to check out his new joint today right after we ate Ramen at Men Tei which is just across the road. If you are a regular reader […]
One Egg Soup $3.90 I remember the time I started writing the blog over 3 years ago. One of the restaurants that really got everyone excited was Astons Specialties which had just opened their first restaurant at East Coast Road. Everyone loved the idea of Western food at great value. Since then, quite a few […]
Oriole Cafe and Bar: Arguably the Best Cup of Coffee in Singapore…. Arguably
Where can you get the best cup of coffee in Singapore? As I hinted in the title, this is a very contentious question because everyone has a place for their favourite cuppa. To make any assertion, one must have a basis. If the basis is personal taste, then we can argue till the cows come […]
Cafe AG: A Socially Responsible Dining Suggestion for New Year’s Eve
For our Christmas Eve dinner this year, we had a four course set dinner in an exclusive, by invitation only, eatery set in a rustic kampung environment. What makes this particular eatery so special is that it is run entirely by the girls of AG home.We have been supporting Pastor Andrew’s work with troubled teenage […]

Jacky Chan’s Cafe: Kung Fu Cappuccinno and Dim Sum!
I still remember my very first Jacky Chan movie. It was none other than “Drunken Monkey”, the good olde Kung Fu movie back in 1978 with a predictable storyline which only serves as a backdrop for the Kung Fu actors to display their Kung Fu skills. You know the story…….. young disciple’s master gets killed […]
Good Morning Nanyang Cafe: Freshly Baked Scones and Kopi!
This Stall is Closed It’s been a year since I first met Liverpool and blogged about his Ciabatta and Kaya Toast. How time flies. Ever since our first meeting, we have been tossing around ideas on what else would Singaporeans like to eat with their Kopi and Teh C. If you all have been following […]
Laksa Sphaghetti $12.90++ I am a little apprehensive about reviewing Fusion cuisine because I seldom hear people raving about it. In fact, most of the time people tend to utter phrases like “Fusion Confusion” instead. The thing about Fusion cuisine is that people tend to compare the new dish with the original and if the […]
