Kara Cafe & Dessert Bar now serves breakfast!

KARA Café & Dessert Bar at Bukit Timah, known for its popular Sogurt self-served frozen yogurt and iconic dishes like its Pork Belly Miso grain bowl and Matcha Berry Mochi Waffles, has just launched a breakfast menu for the first time. I was invited to Kara Cafe to sample the breakfast menu, which is available from 8am – 11.30am. My previous visit was a couple of years back when I sampled Kara Cafe’s main menu.

It was a wet and windy Sunday when I made my way to Kara Cafe. To be honest, I was wondering if I should postpone my visit since the forecast was for thundery showers for the first half of January. I had intended to kill 2 birds with one stone with this journey across the island, by visiting the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, but that hope was washed away with the gloomy weather.

Cake Delivery Singapore – Get a cake at 12 midnight?!

Cake Delivery Singapore contacted me awhile back to ask me if I would like to try their cakes. I scrolled through their website and was instantly intrigued by the Build Your Own Cake concept. No it’s not a cake that you assemble yourself, although that would be interesting and fun too.

Build Your Own Cake is a cake where instead of choosing just 1 flavour, you can actually cobble together 10 – 12 different flavours. If you get the 8 inch cake, you get to choose the flavours for 10 slices. If you get the 9.5 inch cake, you get to choose the flavours for 12 slices.

Fullerton Hotel Town Restaurant G’Day Sunday Brunch

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore present a taste of Australia to mark the first anniversary of sister property The Fullerton Hotel Sydney. From 18 October to 30 November, guests can look forward to Aussie-themed, Singapore-inspired dining promotions that draw on the rich culinary cultures of both countries. Interestingly, the Fullerton Hotel Sydney also shares a similar history as a previous General Post Office.

I tried the G’Day Sunday Brunch at Fullerton Hotel’s Town Restaurant, which is only available on 18th and and 25th October. This is not the usual Sunday Brunch with a cursory nod to the Aussie-theme by featuring just a couple of Aussie-linked dishes. Many dishes feature ingredients brought in from Australia and there are also dishes that are quintessentially Australian. If you plough through all the Australian dishes, you would probably stagger out of the restaurant a very satisfied person.

Here’s a list of all the dishes that are Aussie-themed or feature ingredients from Australia:

  • Australian Brekkie
  • Australian Moreton Bay Bugs
  • Tasmania Mussels
  • Australian Peaches / Australian Beets
  • Australian King Fish Tiradito
  • Crackling Australian Pork Belly
  • Wok Fried Australian Yabbies
  • Australian Swimmer Crab
  • Slow-Roasted Australian Dorper Lamb Leg (My favourite!!)
  • Pan-flashed Stanbroke Australian Hanger Steak
  • Hickory-smoked BBQ Australian Pork Ribs
  • Cheeses such as King Island Dairy Ash Brie, Berry Creek Riverine Blue Chese
  • Anzac Biscuits, Pavlova, Lamingtons

and many more

Thank Goodness It’s Seafood – Nasi Ulam jazzed up!

This is my second time collaborating with the Thank-Goodness-It’s (TGI) concept where they present a different culinary concept every couple of months. After the previous rendition which was Nasi Lemak, this time round, It’s Nasi Ulam 2.0. This is the brainchild of Gastrogig, and they have yet again tied up with Chef Shen Tan who is famous for her twice-steamed Nasi Lemak and sambals.

Makan for 4 set – $108

Now the first thing that always comes to mind is why pay so much more for something that you could get for cheaper at the hawker centre or some casual eatery. The thing is, if you already have a favourite Nasi Ulam eatery that you always patronise, and you just want something similar, then you’ll find it difficult to justify paying a premium.

8 Durian– Fresh durian delivered to your doorstep de-husked

[Media Collaboration]

I have always been a bit apprehensive about purchasing durians. During my younger days, my father would be the one to procure the durians. It was a pity he did not take me along, but I guess he would simply purchase from his favourite durian shops or sources in Geylang. I have never purchased durians myself and would be totally clueless as to the correct price to pay so as not to be ripped off. Not to mention that good durian stalls are usually not conveniently located.

8 Durian (2)

Lately, I was asked to try out 8 Durian, and online purveyor of the King of Fruits. They have their own durian plantation in Pahang, where fresh shipments of durians will be delivered to Singapore twice a day. In a way, I was relieved not to have to face any rough and tough durian seller. Just click click click online to choose my durians. It may not be the cheapest around, but I like the fact that I don’t have to haggle.
