Rocky Master (Biopolis)

What's for lunch?  Rocky Master is one of those sandwich joints.  The gourmet iced chocolate is something to shout about.  If you have not tried it, I strongly recommend that you give it a try.  It is very different from other iced chocolate from other cafes including starbucks, CBTL. 

Since it was lunch, I decided to try their mushroom soup and curry potty pie.  The mushroom soup was surprising thick and filled with small bits of minced mushroom.  Good value.  However, the potty pie was obviously a frozen pie, heated up in microwave oven.  Forget about ordering the pie.  It was a disappointment =(

Dessert Indulgence at Brunetti (Tanglin Mall)

The dessert was surprising crowded on a working weekday with customers who are students, business executives and tourist.  Tanglin Mall isn't a very convenient location, being quite a distance from the MRT station, yet this manages to draw an impressive crowd. 

I suppose the reason behind this might be the wide range of beverages. Besides the usual coffee and tea, beer is also available from this dessert bar. But, I think the biggest draw is the range of desserts that look so irresistable.  Pretty-looking cakes, cute pastries, drooling chocolates/pralines, gelato that comes in usual (chocolate, tiramisu, macha) and un-usual (hazelnut, caramel) flavours.  The experience seems incomplete, if you walk out of the dessert bar without a taste of their gelato.  But if you already had more than you should, perhaps just ask for some sampling and hopefully, that satisfied your curiosity and craving about the gelato.

Chili's Restaurant (Tanglin Mall)

Chili's has been in Singapore for the longest time, at Tanglin Mall.  In the recent years, they opened a second restaurant at Resort World Sentosa.  For their years of existence in Singapore, I've never had the chance to try their food until last November.

It was a lunch set meal - Monterey Chicken with baked potato soup.  The chicken steak, which is a marinated and grilled chicken breast in BBQ sauce was tender and juicy.  It was served together with smoked bacon, cheese and tomato cubes.  The freshness of the tomato cubes took the "jer lat-ness" away from the fried stuff.

Had to say that the baked potato soup was totally unique and delicious.  The soup may be too thick for some but I love it perfectly.

Next is the tostada chips.  The warm and crispy chips is something that you should not miss.  The salsa sauce is heavenly.... infinitely better than those you can from supermarket.  Try it!

CNY 2012 - Pineapple Tarts from Bakery Hearts

What's your favourite pineapple tart for CNY 2012?  My pick for this year is Pineapple Tarts from Bakery Hearts.  $16 for a bottle.... the price is very reasonable, isn't it?  Furthermore, it is food for a good cause during this festive season!  Quality of the pineapple tart is actually quite good!  Not too sweet, not too jerlat.

Lo Hei

It's the time of the year again... to Lo Hei!  捞啊。。。捞个风声水起啊!I've heard that the dish Yu Sheng originates from Singapore.  Yes, unbelieveable, right? 

What do you like best about the dish?  The shredded vegetable, the raw fish, or the crackers?  Me loves the crackers... love the crispiness and best of all, it is called 黄金满地 which can literally be translated into "land full of gold"!

I've just head my first Yu Sheng yesterday... certainly don't mind if there are more to come =)

Ya Kun (Kaya Butter Cracker)

Life can be just as simple as kaya and butter with toasted crackers.  The crunchy crackers tasted extremely good with the thick slab of melting butter in between.  That's the type of simple pleasures that our parents and grandparents had experienced when life was so much simpler and unsophisticated.  Highly recommend that you try this during breakfast or afternoon, if you haven done so at Ya Kun.  $1.60 for this set of crackers.

Delcie's Desserts (Mud Fudge Cake)

I have been wanting to try the cakes and cookies from Delcie's Desserts for a loooong time. The opportunity finally came when Groupon was selling a coupon - $25 for $60 worth of cakes or desserts. The cakes from Delcie's aren't cheap, minimally $50+ for a small cake. This is because organic ingredients aren't cheap. More than 85% of the ingredients used are organic, according to the baker herself.

The Groupon coupon expired end of last year (which was like yesterday, haha) and I decided to use it to get a cake for a gathering which came up. Since the Mud Fudge cake was a popular one among the customers, I decided to give it a try. Here it is!

It came with thick layer of real chocolate (not cocoa). Besides being organic, the cake was baked egg-free, gluten-free and dairy-free. How will such a cake taste like? It was suprisely pretty sweet, the real chocolate was really good. Perhaps the best way to eat it is to heat up in microwave for 10 secs so that the chocolate will melt and the cake is warm. And there, you get a warm chocolate cake! Other than that, if you're someone who needs a cake to have butter taste, then sorry, I think it is not for you then.

The price for this cake was $70. =) The shop has moved to Upper Serangoon Road since Nov 2011. It is about 5 to 7 mins walk from Kovan MRT station, opposite Heartland Mall.

Since CNY is just around the corner, they have also started selling healthy CNY cookies. Tried some of the cookies while I was there to collect the cake, my personal favourite is the cashew cookies. Very fragrant cashew taste with cookies with the right crunchiness. The cookies aren't cheap either - $28 to $30+ per bottle. But for the reason of good health, it may be worth the investement =P
