For a joint that calls itself Momo Café, I had imagined it to be all of pastel, girlish cuteness, as "momo" means "peach" in Japanese. But reality is very different. Dark, sombre, the most uplifting sunshine element in the café could possibly be the helpful and friendly service that was rendered to us.
Adjacent to Group Therapy Coffee at Duxton Road, the quiet Momo could be the alternative chillax place should its neighbour gets too crowded or noisy.

If there is only one patisserie which you have to spend your precious calories on, make it the best. Make it Mad About Sucre!
I thought my friends were exaggerating when they started raving about how good this European-inspired cakery at Teo Hong Road (2 minutes walk from Outram mrt) is. But guess what, I went a little crazy too, from the moment I stepped into its chic minimalist space, to the moment of truth when I lifted a spoonful of artisanal creation into my mouth and felt bursts of orgasmic delight. This place is a must-visit!

From the name "Pizza Fabbrica", it sounds pretty straightforward that the restaurant takes a focus on pizza, but there's nothing cookie-cutter about it even though "fabbrica" means "factory" in Italian.
Instead, the kitchen team approaches the well-loved Italian cuisine with an artisanal and creative flair, cooking up an array of dishes that marry tradition and innovation. The man leading them all is executive chef Matteo Boifava who has honed his culinary skills in kitchens around the world, including Heston Blumenthal's 3-Michelin-starred The Fat Duck in London.

Westies, rejoice! Miam Miam has launched a Lunch Exécutif Menu, and that is exclusively available at the Jurong East's Westgate outlet only (sorry, those at the Bugis Junction branch don't get it). For just $17.90++ per person, we get to enjoy a Soup of the Day, Choice of Main Course, before finishing the meal with Coffee or Tea.
Wait, better grab a colleague or friend along (unless you have a voracious appetite to eat double portion) because an order of 2 set lunches comes with a complimentary Matcha Red Bean Cream Pancake (worth $12.80)! Ahh... ending any meal with dessert is a must (at least for me :p).

Our Sunday was made more beautiful with a drive into the tranquil surroundings of Phoenix Park. A Historic Site which used to house several important government agencies, the beautifully preserved buildings are now leased for commercial use and one of its occupants, Boufé, is the reason for our visit.
Boufé = (Bou)tique + Ca(fé). Yay can shop, can eat! Happy!
The name says it all, though it really sounds like 'buffet' haha.

Long Chim Thai Street Food Restaurant @ MBS ~ Acclaimed Chef David Thompson Of Best Restaurant Nahm Ventures Into Singapore!
You might wonder, what's the fuss about? Afterall, Marina Bay Sands already has a stellar line-up of celebrity chef restaurants such as CUT by Wolfgang Puck and Waku Ghin by Tetsuya Wakuda, mostly expensive indulgences which many can't afford to splurge on regularly. Well, with the opening of Long Chim, your perception might just change.
Long Chim, meaning “come and taste”, is an invitation to sample a modern yet delicious take on affordable Thai street fare. Yes, delicious and still affordable even in a upscale setting. We each forked out only $36 after splitting the bill among our dinner group of three.

We can never get enough of hotpot, especially when it's collagen hotpot! Another restaurant to offer this beauty enhancing deliciousness is Torikin 鶏金, a Mizutaki ~ Japanese chicken and collagen hotpot ~ specialist that has its origins in Hakata, Japan. I was told that the boss himself is from Japan, and Torikin is his very first Singapore venture. Must thank him and his team for bringing us such a wonderful dining experience. ありがとう!!!

What's brewing at Rochester Mall? It's Doi Chaang Coffee! I was at Star Vista and very much in need of an afternoon perk-me-up when I remembered that this renowned specialty coffee joint from Thailand had opened its flagship Singapore outlet in January 2015. Just 5 minutes across the road from where I am, I can still drag my feet over lah. Besides the organic arabica coffee it serves would be a nice change from the usual coffee chain offerings in this area.

The address reads: 5 Tan Quee Lan Street, but I can't find it! Blur me actually walked right passed the understated entrance of Joo Bar which is located along the same stretch as Sawadee Thai and GastroSmiths (right across Bugis Junction). Glad I did managed to get myself there eventually, because this modern Korean makgeolli bar and restaurant is one of the more promising establishments to open recently. I love the place!

For the last couple of weeks, I've been having my lunch (sometimes dinner) almost everyday at Zion Riverside Food Centre! If you happen to be a regular there and saw a girl letting her camera inhale multiple shots of the food before enjoying it herself, yes, that would most probably be this PinkyPiggu (I ate everything you see in the pictures here!) Lol!
Situated along Zion Road directly opposite where Great World City is located, Zion Riverside Food Centre serves as an affordable dining option for office slaves (like me) and residents nearby. Local food warms our heart, and fills our soul like no other cuisine, but the myriad of choices can be a tad overwhelming considering the limitation of tummy space one has at any one time. So, where to start huh? Here's my personal guide on Best 10 Stalls To Try!
