Rabbit Carrot Gun

Yes… the name is weird for a cafe I know, but apparently this is the British version of Scissors Paper Stone. Here’s how it’s played:

Gun wins over Rabbit : Gun shoots Rabbit

Rabbit wins over Carrot : Rabbit eats Carrot

Carrot wins over Gun : Carrot can be stuffed into the Gun

So my question is…why can’t the Carrot win over the Rabbit by stuffing it up the Rabbit’s….

Okay I’ll be good, won’t go down that road… Smile Smile

Rabbit Carrot Gun - (1)

Easties rejoice, for we now have another cafe in the Eastern part of Singapore. Rabbit Carrot Gun is along East Coast Road, you know the row of shop houses directly opposite 112 Katong Mall. When I was there a month back, they were still in the midst of renovating the next door unit to turn it into a British Pub. I should return to check it out again.

As for Rabbit Carrot Gun itself, the food is British inspired, because the owner is from the UK. I was there only for brunch on the weekend, so I didn’t get to peruse the main menu, but I think there are a lot of interesting items. The brunch menu is unfortunately, extremely limited. If you’re not the muesli, then there’s basically only the big breakfast or the eggs benedict in several ways. This is what we had.

My father as usual had the eggs florentine, which is poached eggs served on a bed of spinach served with homemade hollandaise sauce. As he almost always chooses eggs benedict/eggs florentine at all the brunch places we go to, he is the expert when it comes to eggs benedict. The portion at Rabbit Carrot Gun was a little on the small side for the price. Also, the bread base looked rather plain, as compared to the homemade bread types or brioche that you can get elsewhere. The eggs florentine tasted quite okay, not too bad, but certainly not something you would be keen to return in a hurry. I suppose this would be good for people who like their eggs benedict mild, and not covered in a ton of buttery hollandaise sauce.

Marks & Spencer British Goodies

I don’t know about you, but I have a soft spot for all things British! I love the country, I love London, I love the quaint countryside, I love the British cooks  (Nigella, Jamie, Hugh Fearnley). Three times I’ve been to the UK for holidays, and I still yearn to go back again. I have also been to New Zealand 3 times, and next week will be the 4th trip. But I always tell the kiwi Partner that the grass in England is greener. Serious!

Did you manage to catch the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on TV? My parents were glued to the TV even until past midnight! Such is the fascination for the British Royal family, who aren’t related to us in any way! The Partner likes to tell me that he has royal blood, but what’s the use of that if he can’t show me my room in the castle?

Anyway, one place in Singapore you can indulge in a bit of British is at Marks & Spencer. I love it when it’s Easter and Christmas. All their goodies are packaged so nicely and always so festive looking. This time round, thanks to the Queen’s Jubilee and the upcoming London Olympics, Marks & Spencer has also churned out quite a few new British treats.

Marks & Spencer - Family Biscuits for Tea (2)

These Family biscuits for tea were going at $37. My GUY friend was lusting over these tins for the last 1 week and he finally succumbed to buying one today. It certainly is a pretty tin but is it worth $37?

Marks & Spencer - Milk Chocolate Rosette Lollipops

Something cheaper if you still want to buy something. Milk Chocolate Rosette Lollipops. Great fun for wearing too. Like so.
