Percolate Coffee – The croissant sandwiches look good!

Did you know that Percolate Coffee is 5 years old? Percolate Coffee’s probably the cafe that I have visited the most since my cafe hopping journey, thanks to its location in the East. And in this fickle F&B industry where customers continually search for new places to Instagram rather than to keep patronising the same place, 5 years is indeed a laudable milestone.

What happens when the toddler wants something different from what you want? Who wins?

The coffee is good (and so is their iced chocolate which is what I always order), somewhat more affordable than town prices, and always friendly faces here. I thought I should cobble together the photos I have taken in my numerous visits here. They also have a broader food menu now as compared to when they first opened. Some of the interesting sounding things they have include prawn curry mash, unagi soba, cheese croissant + curry dip and a number of croissant sandwiches with various fillings. So far, savoury food-wise, I’ve only tried the curry egg mayo a couple of times and loved it.

People & Places Cafe [Johor Bahru]

Quick post on this super instagrammable cafe that I visited in JB during a quick daytrip to JB. It’s called People & Places, and according to my friend who has been to JB countless times, this is a very popular cafe especially on the weekends. Food in general is also above average. And as with most things in Malaysia, the cafe food is cheaper than in Singapore, which is always appreciated!

I have to agree that this cafe as many instagrammable opportunities because of the layout and decor. There are lot of plants around, there is a special cosy seating corner and there is also a long flight of stairs leading to the 2nd floor where you can take overhead shots of the cafe too. We spent 10 minutes eating and drinking but nearly 1 hour taking pictures, we were that crazy! Scroll down for all the nutty pictures that we took!

The super popular pancake. It’s not bad but not the best. Would have liked a sweeter topping to drizzle over as the pancake was a little dry. Also the bitter veggie garnish totally did not go with the pancake, although it made for a lovely shot… The drinks were good though, no complaints there.

Antoinette’s new menu for 2018 scores again with its savoury dishes.

[Media Invite]

Dining at Antoinette is always a very pleasant affair. In this Instagram era where F&B’s pop-up and close down as fast as you can count, Antoinette gives you the feeling that it is here to stay. I’ve personally visited at least 10 or so times over the last few years? What amazes me is that Chef-Owner Pang Kok Keong seems to show no limits when it comes to introducing new dishes to his menu. All restaurants have to do that from time to time, but Chef Pang comes up with numerous dishes that are not only pretty to the eye (or camera), but taste good as well. Simply put, these are dishes I would return again to have.

This time round, I thought the new appetisers and main dishes stood out. My favourites from this lot has got to be the double prawn linguine, the wagyu beef tagliatelle, the baked rigatoni and the black bait. I’m quite sad to see last year’s Hakka inspired dishes go, but at least we have these new ones to look forward to.

Kakuida’s Kurozu : Healthy yet delicious donuts, it’s true!

[Sponsored Post]

If you walk past the newly opened Kakuida’s unassuming storefront at Icon Village opposite Tanjong Pagar MRT station, you might be forgiven for thinking that this is yet another shop selling donuts and tea drinks. But the key difference here is that every single item sold at Kakuida’s is infused with a dose of healthy Japanese black vinegar, aka Kurozu in Japanese.

Kakuida's Kurozu (4)

Kurozu has been around for more than 200 years, dating back to the Edo period (1800s). The health benefits of kurozu include:

  • Detoxifies the liver
  • Relieves stress and body fatigue by breaking down lactic acid
  • Stabilises blood pressure
  • Boosts metabolism and facilitates better blood circulation
  • Promotes digestion and reduces constipation

and the list goes on, of which you can read about here.
