Au Chocolat

Following our lunch, Troopie Plonks and I went to try out this new place called Au Chocolat.

See how huge this place takes up! This is just the restaurant part of it …

I will  just let the pictures do the talking

We started from here

and many other deserts ++++

So with so many choices, I felt like a kid lost in toy’r’us .. but even better! A HUGE CHOCOLATE SHOP!!!  .. 🙂

We proceeded to the restaurant part and started our orders. We decided we wanted something to balance out the chocolate drink, so we ordered:

Caramel Apple Skillet topped with walnuts and Vanilla Ice-cream


Have you heard of a literal frozen hot chocolate? frozen hot chocolate does not = to ice chocolate. They are two different things altogether. See, from my experience, ice chocolate means, cold chocolate flavoured milk, cream/sometimes ice-cream and chocolate syrup + powder blended up and topped with ice cream. Frozen hot chocolate is literally, hot chocolate frozen, topped and decked with cream. As below:

Frozen Hot Chocolate

and let me just take a close up of one spoon of this delight

Chocolate goodness indeed 🙂

Verdict: 2/2 of us will definitely return here! Especially for a chocolate fix! They also serve high tea (which we regret not trying), menu seemed quite extensive.

The apple skillet – I only wished the base was slightly more heated up .. if not for that, overall this dish was pretty good. Nothing to niche pick about but just something nice to go along with this super uberly rich chocolate drink.


The literal Frozen Hot Chocolate is so going down my chocolate drinks dictionary! It was so rich and after one sip, we just started giggling at each other. Immediate Sugar high?  perhaps. The feeling of bliss – all condensed into this drink 🙂

my dear troopie plonks asked me out to celebrate my birthday! Blessed indeed to have friends that want to celebrate my birthday 🙂

because I had something on earlier in the day, she came down to Marina Bay Sands to meet me for lunch. I am so glad and thankful for her! 🙂 yesterday was such a crappy day for me – had to survive through a rude crappy interview, but really, am thankful she made the effort to come down and meet me 🙂

I was really craving sushi after watching this documentary on sushi.. Its called Jiro Sushi, about this sushi master in Japan who is 80 over years old, and awarded 3  Michelin stars! We have very much to learn from him, his attitude towards his work.. It is just amazing.  “Even at my age in my work, I have not reached perfection” – Jiro Ono

ok.. so back to this place, we just walked in since we seem to only find this place around (that doesn’t do much damage to the pocket as well)


Peek inside


This place is very nicely situated. The view is just fantastic.


Imagine this place at night!!!

ok.. so we just ordered a few dishes to share (because we are aiming for the desserts at this newly opened chocolate shop within MBS)

Salmon Sashimi

and we thought we try the fusion ‘singapore style infused Japanese sushi’

Crunchy Tuna Roll : Chopped Fatty Tuna, TEMPURA Crunch, Garlic Chip, Salsa & Chilli Sauce

Singapore Chilli “TEMPURA” Crab Roll : Snow Crab Leg TEMPURA, Iceburg Lettuce, Tomato, Homemade Chilli Crab Sauce

Verdict: 0.5/2 of us will return.
The sashimi was just ok .. it did not look very appealing .. the rolls, well for the tuna roll, we were expecting it to be slightly different. From the description, we thought the whole thing together would be like a sashimi and a little crunch to it? but .. it did not turn out as such .. it was overall mushy .. and just the sauce was disappointing as well.

The crab roll, hmm i would say is the better out of the two .. It’s quite an interesting experience to mix chilli crab sauce and Japanese snow crab together. I just didn’t think to use the rice paper roll was necessary. Should have just stuck to seaweed instead.

But nonetheless, am feeling so grateful and thankful she took the time and effort to have a meal with me to celebrate 😀

Osteria Mozza

We headed down here to celebrate my brother’s graduation + birthday as well as a farewell for my lil sister that shes back to being an international student ( aka trained maid)

its quite nice to have the whole family dressed up for an occasion .. and sit down and have a nice dinner .. 🙂


We were quite excited to try out this place! after all we hear so much about these top culinary chefs that come to Singapore and set up their restaurants.. So we decided to head down and try it out .. we also didn’t find much reviews for this place so was quite excited to try it out ..


So to start off our dinner, we ordered to share amongst us appetisers:

Grilled Octopus with potatoes, celery & lemon

Close up of the Octopus

Butter Lettuces with hazelnuts, bacon, gorgonzola dolce & egg

Grilled Bone Marrow

Burrata with grilled asparagus, guanciale, brown butter & almonds

Then following that, we ordered 2 pastas to share as well:

Porcini mushroom

And following that, we ordered some mains to share:

Rabbit con salsiccia, roasted garlic, lemon & rosemary

Grilled Whole snapper with herbs & extra virgin olive oil

Grilled Wagyu Beef Tagliata with rucola & Parmigiano Reggiano

Duck al Mattone with pear mostarda & corn

pear mostarda & corn

and of course, some side dishes to accompany :

Grilled japanese eggplant with mint & yogurt

Verdict : 4.5/5 of us will return only for the appetizer! our favourite is the asparagus with burra cheese. I thought the dish was very nicely co-ordinated. The salad was also not too saltish, and the butternut was very crisp and seasoned well. The octopus was a little slightly over grilled- hence it was pretty tough and rubbery .. and was not as spectacular as we thought it would be.   The bone marrow was presented in a very neat way, and tasted as good as it looked! rich in flavour and very well accompanied with their homemade sour dough bread 🙂

The pasta of the two, I think we all prefered the creamy porcine mushroom one. I liked how the texture of the pasta was just slightly more undercooked, as well overall as a dish its very light and not too heavy. The other pasta on the other hand, was a little too saltish from the cured ham, but the spiciness of the sauce gave it a nice kick to the dish.

The mains: I thought all was alright .. The duck was well cooked, but we were told before ordering that the skin would be crispy, but it did not turn out to be as such. We sent the dish back to the kitchen and the chef sent it back out to us saying that its the way it is.. So I guess thats it .. but nonetheless i like the sauces that accompany it.  The Rabbit – bravely eaten by my siblings – they complained that the marinate had drowned out the texture of the rabbit meat. One of the meat however, was over cooked and tough. The Snapper was nicely cooked but overstuffed with mint leaves .. so made it a little … minty .. ahahha …

The sides: the grilled eggplant was awesome – even my brother that does not usually eat eggplants gobbled it down. we didn’t really take tot the other vegetable very well ..

Good dinner nonetheless :/

High Society Cafe

We walked around MBS before waiting for our thai dinner.. And decided to go with something sweet since we were both feeling up to it

We thought we try what we couldnt get in town, so we went to High Society Cafe and ordered:

A strawberry shortcake to share, and also


A nice change in environment. Cake was not bad . Maybe might come back. Lychee tea was also good – but i found them doused in too much syrup I didn’t even dare to stir much of the bottom
