Meats & Malts– Affordable Western food and you must try their fabulous Tom Yam pasta!

Meats & Malts opened earlier this year but surprisingly, I haven’t seen or heard much about them on the social media sphere. In fact, when I googled, the only mention of them is from the Straits Times! That’s a shame because Meats & Malts is one of my best finds this year so far (food & relaxed ambience), definitely worth a visit if you’re nearby, or even if you’re not!

Meats & Malts Seating Area

So spacious!

Meats & Malts is tucked away at the corner of the BreadTalk IHQ at Tai Seng, next to Food Republic. The seating area is massive, because BreadTalk IHQ is massive. I love the high ceiling, so spacious! Thanks to the humongous ceiling fans, it’s a breeze sitting outside, literally!

Ok so here’s the most memorable dish that we had. To think I was really reluctant when my dining companions suggested to order this. I wanted something more “cafe food” style, but they ignored me and went ahead! Everything was great about this dish, but what I loved most about it was the bouncy texture of the pasta and the really delicious tom yam cream sauce. It was good that the spice level was just right too. I could just eat oodles and oodles of those noodles with that sauce.

Bee’s Knees (cafe) amidst lush greenery at the Singapore Botanic Gardens

Bees-Knees---Lush-Greenery_thumb1

When I say lush greenery, I do mean lush greenery!

Last month, we brought Baby to check out the the latest dining establishment at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, ie the Bee’s Knees. It’s located in this conservation building called The Garage, which houses Bee’s Knees cafe on the ground floor and a more atas restaurant called Botanico on the upper floor. We thought it would be a good opportunity to expose Baby to nature and greenery.

Btw, this 1920s era Art Deco building is called The Garage because it was actually used as a garage back in the colonial times, hence its seven vaulted entrances for the parking bays back then.

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf – New Food and Drinks!

I have a soft spot for The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf because it was there that I tried my maiden ice-blended coffee drink all those years back. When they first opened in Singapore, there were few other places to try such stuff, Starbucks being the main competition. There are multiple options in various permutations available today, however The Coffee Bean’s mocha ice-blended coffee is still one of my firm favourites.

So it was good to know that they have updated their food and drinks menu. From now until 24th May 2017, you can try two new Mexican Chocolate beverages. There’s the Mexican Chocolate Latte if you want a hot drink, and the Mexican Chocolate Ice Blended Drink if you want a cold drink.

The Coffee Bean - Mexican Chocolate Ice Blended $7 and Mexican Chocolate Latte $7

Mexican Chocolate Latte – Small: $7, Regular: $7.70, Large: $8.20

Mexican Chocolate Ice Blended Drink – Small $7, Regular $8, Large $9

Botanist (Cafe) – Pretty food, pretty plants, pretty good

I have been craving cafe food lately so I went back to look at my old pictures and realised that I have not been blogging about cafes in Singapore for the longest time! So to make amends, you will be seeing more cafe posts in the coming weeks! Hold on tight because there’s going to be a deluge of pancakes, eggs Benedicts, waffles, grain bowls, hot chocolates and flat whites coming at you! I’m sure you won’t mind, would you?

Botanist -  (8)

Visited Botanist late last year when my friend was still pregnant and on early maternity leave. Run by the same guys who also run Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters and Alchemist, Botanist is probably well known in the cafe hopping scene because of its garden-like decor. Aside from Instagram opportunities, it is quite soothing to see the touches of greenery all around.

We had intended to visit more cafes but she popped soon after, about 2 weeks after this picture was taken! One hardly thinks about it but there’s a lot of nice cafe food that you can’t have while you’re pregnant. Think coffee/caffeinated drinks, dishes with runny yolks, smoked salmon, salad…. the list can be long depending on how strict you want to be!

Botanist - French Toast (fried brioche, rhubarb berry marmalade, fresh berries, almond flakes, poached pear, vanilla ice-cream) $18 (1)

Caffè Vergnano 1882 Singapore

After our lunch at Real Food at South Beach, we decided to look for a cafe to have some dessert and coffee. Even though South Beach looks sprawling, it actually has only 2 cafes specialising in coffee! Dimbulah was closed so the default option was Caffe Vergnano.

Caffe Vergnano (8)

Lots of charging points for those who need juice for their devices

Thanks to the super high ceilings at South Beach, Caffe Vergnano looked very inviting. They made good use of the extra height by installing a historical timeline of their business. Very interesting I must say. I had no idea of Caffe Vergnano’s illustrious background. This is a cafe run by Italy’s oldest family-owned coffee roasters, and the roasting business started all the way back in 1882! They source and procure the finest quality coffee beans from around the world which are then slow-roasted to a time-honoured tradition. The Singapore outlet is the 100th outlet that they have opened!

Chai Tea Latte $5.50
