Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Festive Afternoon Tea

If there’s one thing I love doing during the Christmas season, that’s having afternoon tea. There is an unexplainable pleasure just sitting around sipping cups of tea and savouring dainty morsels amidst Christmassy decor. I’ve been meaning to visit Marriott Hotel for its Afternoon Tea as they have the 1-for-1 promo using the Entertainer App. Good to know that the promo was still applicable during the festive period. Did a spot of shopping at Tangs before and after our afternoon tea. What a really convenient location to rest your feet for a while, say if you’re waiting for a ride home or waiting for a friend.

Edward’s 4th afternoon tea outing (previous ones were Goodwood Park Hotel, Grand Copthorne Waterfront and Chef’s Table at Capella Sentosa). He loves going out because of all the attention he gets, and for some reason, he loves people watching too! He especially loves watching people deep in conversation, wonder why? He had an early Christmas gift too, a little Marriott Tang Plaza monkey soft toy, which he promptly decided to lick….

Ok here are the pictures of the afternoon tea. The teas are refillable and you can also order as many different pots of tea as you wish. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the food items were refillable, as it wasn’t stated on the website!

Merry Christmas 2016!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to more great eats, travels and activities in the years to come!

Lawry’s The Prime Rib– The Prime (Rib) choice for special occasions

Even though there are many steakhouses and restaurants serving steak in Singapore, we still like to go back to Lawry’s The Prime Rib every so often, for the simple reason that the steak is consistently good, and we like the steak there. Yes, even food bloggers crave consistency once in a while, especially when you have a baby in tow and need to know that the restaurant is spacious.

Specifically, I like the Prime Rib at Lawry’s. The steak is always tender, and it comes with a whole pool of special gravy that I like, and it’s one of the few places that provides creamy mustard as a condiment! I could eat dollops of that creamy mustard, it’s so good! It’s not at all cheap to dine at Lawry’s, but if you have the AMEX or CIMB credit card, you could get 50% discount if it is just 2 pax dining.  Click here to see all their promotions. They are also having a Christmas menu. Scroll down to see the entire menu.

[Christmas 2016] Mandarin Orchard Singapore–Festive discounts if you book early!

Did you know it’s less than 2 weeks to Christmas? At the start of the year, it always feels like such a long time to wait till Christmas comes, but before you know it, the Christmas season has descended upon us full blown. How I wish Christmas was a week long so that I may have time to indulge in all the festive treats! Don’t you feel like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is just not enough days to celebrate?

It’s not been my practice to buy log cakes for eating at home because I’ve always been so caught up in making my reservations to dine outside. But this year, just to make the house a little more festive (for Baby you know), I might just purchase a log cake to “adorn” the house. Smile

Mandarin Orchard has FOUR log cakes to choose from, each one sounding more decadent than the previous! The Valhrona Chocolate log definitely has my name on it, me being the chocolate lover…. But really, the hazelnut mango yule log sounds good too. How to decide?

Otto’s Deli Fresh at Raffles Holland V–One of the best Eggs Benedict in a long time!

Otto's Deli Fresh (1)

Otto’s Deli Fresh

Yesterday, Straits Times gave Otto’s Deli Fresh at the recently opened Raffles Holland Village a glowing review. I wouldn’t be surprised, because when I was there a couple of weeks back, I really loved the Eggs Benedict that I had. In fact there were quite a number of dishes that sounded really interesting and I would have liked to try such as the Norwegian Salmon Cappelini, Braised Beef Cheeks and Wagyu Beef Rump.

Otto's Deli Fresh - Valrhona Hot Chocolate $9.50  (1)

Valrhona Hot Chocolate $9.50 with sea salt, crunchy pearls, hazelnut cream espuma

Actually, what first brought my attention to Otto’s Deli Fresh was their Valrhona Hot Chocolate drink, which I chanced upon on Instagram. It looked so decadently good, and festive in the striking red cup that I just had to make a trip to Holland Village. And the perfect opportunity came up after my good friend gave birth at NUH. Lunch at Otto’s, followed by a visit to see the newly minted little one. Would have tarpowed a cup for her too because we had actually planned to visit Otto together but she popped early. But alas, post-pregnancy confinement rules are complicated, and she was worried that hot chocolate might not be allowed.
