Food Hopping

Hi guys! How's your September going? I'm leaving town tomorrow but before that I'm going to tempt you with some food pictures! I have visited many foodie cafes and restaurants the past few weeks and I just wanna share the ones I loved best with you!

Jes and I actually went over to catch the Anthesis's brunch menu but we were too late so we ended up getting finger food cos we were too early for dinner menu! :( But the finger food was so delicious we weren't disappointed at all! I loved their overall rustic, industrial and laidback setting the most.
We had their signature truffle fries, spicy chicken wings and thick creamy delicious fruit milkshakes!
Also to add on, their service was excellent, the staff were very prompt and helpful. Don't forget to avoid any time between 4-5pm unless you're there for their small bites!

Seafood Spaghetti in squid ink at Pasta Brava. It's quite salty even for someone like me who lovesssss salty food but I would say overall it has a great taste. I feel that they could be more generous with their ingredients - prawns / scallops, etc. Italian food is something I will always enjoy; hearty and really tasty!
Can I have another bowl of this delicious lobster bisque right now?
Sauteed scallops have never tasted better with white wine, bechamel sauce.
Thin pieces of pasta loaded with scallops, prawns, white wine and thick saffron cream sauce.
Pasta Brava has a romantic ambience and is dimly lit. Something I would like to highlight is that they allow you to draw on their table papers with chalks so I did a quick sketch of Sen and I before the dinner was served. And I took the drawing home for keepsake! I'm never good with realistic drawings, I'm always so much better with abstract illustrations but since it was a fast sketch, I guess its still passable laaaaa. :p

I've heard a lot about Hatter Street Bakehouse & Cafe from friends as we are all the North-East siders and I've always wanted to try their cakes. But before I could head down to try, Sen delivered them to me since he was passing by the shop! Their Chaitea Cheesecake was quite heavy for me, the cheese was strong and too sweet for my taste but I absolutely loved their Ho Lok Tin (Horlick x Ovaltine) cheese cake, it has a special delectable taste that is rather unique and hey who doesn't love Horlick and Ovaltine? I love Ovaltine drinks and Horlick sweets so a Ho Lok Tin cake works brilliantly for me. <3

Closes on MondayWe visited River Safari 2 weeks back, I've been there before so it's not super exciting since it was only few months of difference but I had to go again because I didn't get to try their legendary Panda Paus and Sen was itching to go. We bought both flavors - Red bean and chocolate custard. Luckily for us, we didn't queue for long as it was a weekday. I heard these baos can sell out fast. I'll admit I won't pay $2.90 for a bao on normal days, but it's their signature bao and the taste actually exceeded my expectation, they tasted pretty good, especially the chocolate custard. The paste was very smooth, it's not too sweet and thick, and the texture was just nice, not dry at all!

And lastly, something that we whipped up when it was pouring outside recently. We had nothing much to eat so we made soup, heated up overnight sushi and drank hot tea. (please do not ever eat overnight sushi like us!)

Now I'm gonna go pack my luggage for my work trip tomorrow, see u guys really soon! (:

Love,
A
