I was psyched to have discovered Jewel Cafe + Bar last night :)
A couple of Saturdays ago, Sher and I checked out PasarBella, Singapore’s first concept market, and one of the city’s largest dining and lifestyle destinations!
Here’s an interesting marketing idea I stumbled upon in a cafe yesterday :)
Earlier tonight, as I was craving a certain dessert after a great dinner at Prego’s, I made the effort to travel 3 MRT stations (that is, from City Hall to Orchard) just for a lemon tart at Paul.
Sitting somewhat indistinctly in a pre-war shophouse along River Valley Rd is Spathe Public House, a gorgeous little cafe serving food meant for sharing :)
‘Word on the Street’ is back! :)
It’s an entry written like an interview, introducing one or more attractions on a single street in Singapore. Avorylane’s first ‘Word on the Street’ (hill, really) was about a Russian Bar atop Duxton Hill.
This time, ‘Word on the Street’ is gonna feature a lorong (= lane) popular with foodies, known as Lorong Kilat.
This is a BFB, otherwise known as Big F*#%king Burger, otherwise known as Big Fucking Burger. Haha. No kidding. The BERGS poster below is proof :)
If you haven’t noticed, the latest trend in restaurants/cafes now is communal dining (aka sharing of food).
It’s 3pm on a Tuesday, and I’m chilling at d’GoodCafe with Sher after our late lunch at Holland Village. Ah, the perks of being unemployed! Hehe.
Saturday - Chell and I met for brunch at Upper Thomson Rd’s littlest hangout, Little Part 1 Cafe:)
Arab Street is hands down, one of my favourite areas in Singapore. In the day, it’s a Malay enclave and cultural haven. By night, it becomes an exotic destination for shisha and drinks, and just the place for a happening post-dinner walk. One of my favourite finds there is Maison Ikkoku.
I <3 Keong Saik Snacks! It is a British-inspired snack bar set in a gorgeous orange shophouse in Chinatown. The food is awesome. The service is great. Plus a part of the cafe turns into a secret cocktail bar at night. What’s not to love? :)
I finally had the chance to check out this super talked-about cafe one Sunday noon. That day, Chye Seng Huat Hardware was seriously hopping, like a cool Manhattan coffee place. But it was also a little intimidating, and I left still not knowing what the hype was about. Haha.
On the last Saturday of 2012, I met the tennis girls for brunch at Cafe Melba, a really pretty and peaceful cafe along Mountbatten Road, also in the cool east. Haha. It was a really nice catch-up where G, PQ, S and I spent a good 4 hours making plans for the new year :)
Merry Christmas guys!
This Christmas eve, I had dinner with my family and paternal grandma at The Garden Slug, a quiet cafe in the charming eastern part of Singapore.
