we decided to have a pre-dinner snack before heading to check out platinum mall for a while ..
So we explored nearby and went to the paragon food basement..
THIS PLACE IS SO HUGE!!!!
So we bought to share and try
And troopie philies and I shared the yoghurt:
And the rest of the troops bought the assorted milk to try too
Thai Milk Tea
Matcha (Green tea) Milk
Verdict: I think the yoghurt was the best 🙂 hahahaa followed by the matcha, thai milk tea… troopie beat complained the chocolate milk was not thick enough .. so .. Yoghurt the best 😀
Following that, I had one of my ‘cheated by the picture’ hazelnut ice-cream…
This was a ‘*wrinkles nose’ moment.. Hazelnut taste was faint 😦 so a big no for me 😦
So, the troops went on to visit the temples of thailand. .. Because of religious purposes and also I don’t really have a keen interest to visit temples, so I thought I just go and explore around the food basement of Siam Square!!! Well why not?? 🙂 In the air con and away from the heat :p so I found this place from trip advisors .. as reccomended ..
Entrance of the Shop
Shop Interior – Nostalgic feel 🙂
So lazing the afternoon away, I ordered myself:
Mushroom and Ham Crepe With Cheese
Verdict: I will totally go back for it ! Pure awesomeness and creaminess to the max!! but for 1, its a little too much after a while! I couldn’t finish eating the whole thing. The creamy texture however, it was like a mixture of cheese and cream + milk?seems to be I think .. But awesome combination 🙂

Rama 1 Rd.,
So then thought I have a quick snack before I commence my study session:
Headed down to this place to check out :
and a peek inside:
So I decided to try something different:
I won’t order this again. Potato and laksa gravy somehow just doesn’t go together.. By the time I scooped to the bottom, the gravy has thickened? And the seafood taste is a little too strong and puts me off for my liking… The ambience here however is very nice for a chillax and relaxing hangout. Maybe I should have just stuck to their chicken pies instead
Pies & Coffee
33 Rochester Drive,
So I was walking around taka basement and chances upon this! The smell was too buttery and enticing! Just had to get it!!! Decided to buy back for my family!
You can smell it when you enter the basement
Verdict: 4/5 of us will return. My bro said it was just ok but after eating one that was baked on the spot, I thought it was quite good! Probably not as buttery but light and make a convenient snack nonetheless 🙂

Ngee Ann City
My very dear friend of mine knows my fascination about chestnuts, so she chanced upon this in giant and bought it for me!
Am super blessed to have such sweet friends 🙂
Verdict: the first bite the chocolate tastes like coffee chocolate. I like the size! It’s so cute and small! And of course the thought behind it 🙂 nice to have once in a while 🙂
Another snack that I found at Katong 112 .. Vegetable snacks! I mean they are supposedly (maybe not but) “psychologically” healthier snack form since its vegetable based? ahhaha so I bought 2 to compare:
A peak insidee
sweet potato. pumpkin
Verdict: end of the day, if you want to be healthy, just eat the vegetable instead. Seriously! hahaha… the vegetable flavoured one, its like a nice saltish snack to have to make you feel psychologically better that you are eating something healthy. The second one however, is like .. I think the sweet potato chip is fine – its like potato chips and just sweet – (on second thought I think I had rather cooked one sweet potato and eat it instead of this) .. the pumpkin just tasted weird. .. I don’t really know how much more to describe it .. but just weird. Wont Go back to buy both
112 East Coast Road
I think the readers of this blog (a big thank you for your continual comments and support) would probably have guessed apart for my undying ‘love’ towards chocolate chip cookies, I blog quite frequently about Japanese snacks.
I am probably one of the suckers for their neat and cool packaging – and most of the times they do deliver what they promise on the packaging – looks and taste.
that being said, I found this at this jap supermarket at katong 112
I thought it reminded me of ritz bits, so I bought a small packet of it and did a comparison
now a comparison of the two:
Side by side comparison
Verdict: The Japanese biscuit has a more saltier texture to it, and the size is bigger than the normal ritz bit ( as seen). The cheese was slightly sweeter than the ritz as well. But I think I still like my ritz the best. I like ritz in that its like balanced (ok abit more to the saltier side but not as saltish as this Japanese Biscuit) of sweet and saltiness combined in a biscuit. 🙂
