Craftsmen Specialty Coffee Siglap Revisited

Since my first visit to Craftsmen Specialty Coffee at Siglap, I’ve been back a couple of times especially at night after dinner at one of my favourite cze char outlets nearby. It’s a nice cafe to go to because it is more spacious than most other cafes, and I can usually find a seat to huddle in with my parents. The older folks don’t really like having to wait you know.

If you’re an Eastie and like Craftsmen Specialty Coffee, you might be glad to know they have opened another branch at Eastwood near Tanah Merah. I’ll blog more about that in the next post, but first, some pictures I took of our visit last week during the 1st day of Chinese New Year.

[Chinese New Year 2015] Antoinette’s Ang Moh Yu Sheng!

Chinese New Year 2015 reviews

I guarantee you, this will be the most intriguing Yu Sheng that you will see this year. No there ain’t heaps of lobsters, crabs, abalones, uni or other manner of seafood. In fact, this Yusheng has no raw fish in it! If this isn’t the most creative Yu Sheng for 2015, I don’t know what is! But to keep you in suspense, here’s a picture of some of Antoinette’s Chinese New Year goodies. You’ll have to go below the fold to see the picture of the Yu Sheng I’m talking about. Smile

Antoinette Restaurant – Not just for desserts

Inspired by the famous last queen of France, Marie Antoinette, and exuding the style and private ambience of Marie’s favorite hideaway chateau, the Petit Trianon in the gardens of Versailles, a visit to Antoinette Restaurant, Pâtissierie & Salon de Thé lets diners embrace the same French elegance. Antoinette Restaurant was conceived by Chef Pang Kok Keong, with the 1st outlet at 30 Penhas Road opened in June 2011,  a second at Mandarin Gallery opened 2 months later; and the third and largest at 3100 square feet, opened in 2012 at Palais Renaissance.

Many people think that Antoinette is just a place for desserts, cakes and sweet treats, and indeed, they do serve these (my favourite being the Nougatine crepe!), however, there’s a whole repertoire of French inspired main courses waiting to be sampled as well in their recently revamped menu. Now, you needn’t just come during tea time, or after dinner. Anytime of the day would be just as good! The following are some of the dishes I tried at Antoinette Restaurant a while back. Can’t wait to return again!

Parkland Green at East Coast Park (Now Open!)

With 8 F&B establishments, 2 sports retail stores and a laser tag arena, Parkland Green has finally opened at East Coast Park. If you find the location or name familiar, this is because this place used to be occupied by the former Parkland Golf Driving Range / Singa Inn.

As an Eastie, I have been watching the development grow with great interest, and now that it’s finally open, I couldn’t be more overjoyed. I have to say, Parkland Green is probably one of the few places in Singapore, where you can dine al-fresco (under cool shade) while enjoying the sea views and sea breeze, while your children play in front of you in the open lawns. I was there just last weekend, and it was heart-warming to see little kids running around blowing bubbles on the lawn.

Here are some pictures of the development and the outlets. Will progressively update this page with more photos and information so do stay tuned! 11 outlets in total, pictures start from the outlet nearest the sea, to the last outlet next to the underpass leading to near Marine Parade NTUC.

See the stairs on the right of the photo, that’s leading into the huge plunge pool they have right in their restaurant! The pool is not ready just yet (as of 25 Nov 2014), but I can’t wait to see it when it is filled with water and people!

Oh Deli (Cafe) at East Coast Road

Oh Deli is one of those places I simply have to recommend as it seems to be off the radar of most cafe hoppers, even though the food served is really value for money. The reason it is off the radar is because Oh Deli has been around for years. It’s not one of those new cafes that have popped up in recent times that people keep instagramming about. In fact, the 1st and foremost business, as the name suggests, is the deli business.

As the story goes, a bunch of sisters, having lived in Australia for a number of years, found good meats to be lacking in Singapore, and hence started this business. It was probably in recent times (more than a year back), that Oh Deli ventured into the cafe business. And because they have the adjoining meat business, the cafe boasts a really value for money menu. You will find that the sandwiches and brunch items are very generously laden with ingredients, and reasonably priced, if not cheaper than usual. In fact, I almost hope that this remains a secret, because as it is, they have already increased their pricing slightly this year as compared to last, although the pricing still remains very attractive.

Check out this power packed chicken sandwich filled with chicken slices, avocadoes, bacon slices and lettuce on a multi grain bread. Only $7. Where can you beat that? We almost fell off our chairs when this mountainous pile arrived!
