[HOTEL] Concorde Hotel at Orchard Road Singapore

September 25th, 2017 – September 28th, 2017.

Finally, I visited Singapore again. Hooray. It was hard to find hotel when you stayed in so many kind of hotels. But, after some considerations, we chose to stay at Concorde Hotel. Actually my sister stayed there and she didn’t really like the place. But after that her hubby stayed there after renovation, and he said the hotel was in a better condition. So, there we were at Concorde Hotel.

A 5-minute walk from the Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut MRT Stations, the Concorde Hotel Singapore is a 10-minute train ride from Little India and Chinatown. It is a 25-minute drive from Changi International Airport. The lobby was spacious. A little bit old school, but still lovely. When we came the lobby was full of people. We checked-in and after finished our welcome drinks, we went right away to the room. We were too tired, and hungry. LOL. But hubby still had to go to office. Poor him.

You don’t wanna come out too quickly from the bathroom. LOL.

[SINGAPORE] WANNA CUPPA at New Bridge Rd Clarke Quay Singapore

September 27th, 2017. After a nice bakuteh breakfast, I stopped by at WANNA CUPPA, just beside the restaurant. I didn’t know anything about this coffee shop. My sister told me that she wanted to go there on her last trip to Singapore, but didn’t have a chance.

IMG_5910

Inspired by the 1920s Gatsby glamour, WANNA CUPPA creates a unique environment for customers to come and relax in an atmosphere of a secret garden. WANNA CUPPA provides our customers with a great ambience with smooth-jazz music and fresh bouquets of floral arrangements. Designed by Enpuro, an architect and interior designer based in the UK, WANNA CUPPA features fresh interpretations of the classic art deco 1920s designs.

Actually, I wonder why nobody ever tell me about WANNA CUPPA. But, I still visited the place, since it was raining and I didn’t have anywhere to go. When I came inside, I really felt the atmosphere like they wrote on their website. Atmosphere of a secret garden. After some times, I saw people come and go. And it seemed they were really enjoyed the coffee shop.

IMG_5911 IMG_5909 IMG_5900 IMG_5902 IMG_5904 IMG_5905 IMG_5906 IMG_5901 IMG_5903

Latte $ 5.50

One big cup of latte served with a delicious petite biscuit. WANNA CUPPA serves award-winning Signature Blend coffee beans from Justin Metcalf World Barista JudgeTM. Definitely a perfect time to drink a perfect coffee at that rainy moment.

Ondeh Ondeh Cake $ 7.90

Love the ondeh ondeh cake. It’s a fluffy pandan sponge layers, sandwiched with a rich sweet gula melaka (palm sugar) mixture and finished off with a smooth coconut buttercream. Served with a sprinkle of gula melaka sugar crumbs and grated coconut on top. I found it not too sweet. Perfect companion for my latte.

Next time I go to Singapore I will visit this place for their savoury food. Please hubby take me there soon!

[SINGAPORE] Tarte by Cheryl Koh at Shaw Centre Scotts Rd Singapore

September 26th, 2017. When in Singapore, I met Nicholas Tan @stormscape. OMG OMG OMG! I admired him so much. He’s very nice, and after our Takashimaya’s journey, he took me to Tarte by Cheryl Koh. Yaaaay.

IMG_5829

One of life’s greatest gastronomic indulgences can be found at Tarte by Cheryl Koh, a spin-off by the Les Amis Group with Les Amis restaurant’s pastry chef Cheryl Koh, which opened in April 2015. In a span of a year, Chef Cheryl was awarded ‘Asia’s Best Pastry Chef’ in the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards in 2016.

Located in Shaw Centre, Tarte side by side with Caveau Bar. We can take away the cake or sitting at Caveau Bar, kinda obtaining their tables, and order drinks. Tarte itself is a petite cakeshop with lovely frames on the wall. Tarte by Cheryl Koh is the Les Amis group’s pâtisserie in Singapore. I wonder if they will come to Indonesia. Hmmm..

IMG_5837 IMG_5835 IMG_5838 IMG_5834 IMG_5836 IMG_5833 IMG_5831 IMG_5830 IMG_5832

Earl Grey Tea Latte $ 6.00

It was Nicholas’ order, and I didn’t try it. But Nicholas said it’s good.

IMG_5839

Latte $ 5.50

My latte. Better latte than never hahaha. Love the latte art. Beautiful. Tasted mild with milky texture. Just perfect for my taste bud. Served in big cup, I was very satisfied with the size and the flavour LOL.

IMG_5842

Ardèche Chestnut $ 10.00

Ardèche Chestnut with vanilla cream and dark rum

Nicholas chose this one. It was sooooooo delicious. The chestnut mixed perfectly with the vanilla cream and dark rum. Ardèche is the largest chestnut-producing department in France, with nearly 5,000 tonnes a year. I just found out about the chestnut. Cool! I think everybody loves chestnut. Actually they can put an addition of dark rum to the tart. I prefer more. LOL. The texture of the tart was priceless. Perfect.

IMG_5841

Lemon Meringue $ 10.00

Fresh lemon curd topped with meringue

I chose this one. Love the sweet and sour flavour in this tart. Well, I always loved lemon meringue in everything. Cake, tart, pie, everything. This cripsy base tart is bursting with fresh lemon taste and a sweet, creamy fluffy meringue on top. It was to die for.

Thank Nicholas for taking me there. Great job Tarte!

[SINGAPORE] Descendants of Dragon Chicken Rice at Cavenagh Rd Singapore

September 25th, 2017. Yeah, it’s been 3 months ago LOL. Like I said all the time, I was very very busy with everything. I went to Singapore with hubby. He worked, I shopped. LOL. We stayed at a hotel in Orchard Rd. I will tell you later about the hotel. And, I found out that we stayed near street food at Cavenagh Rd, and I went there before with my friends. I was very happy since I loved the food there. It was when I found Descendants of Dragon Chicken Rice.

IMG_5734

It was actually a stall. Not a fancy one, of course. It’s like food court but outdoor. Cool, aight? The funny thing, we could see birds stealing leftover food hahaha..

IMG_5736 IMG_5735 IMG_5732 IMG_5731 IMG_5733

Roasted Pork Rice $ 5.00

Hubby’s order. Crispy crunchy tender juicy roasted pork. Hmmm.. yummy. Succulent pork with fragrant seasoned sauce and warm rice. They roasted the pork perfectly so it’s tender and juice on the inside and browned and crunchy on the outside.

IMG_5725

Char Siew Rice $ 5.50

My favourite!! Sticky, sweet, savory and deliciously perfect with steamed rice. Think about such a tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat with well-seasoned sauce. Char Siew literally means fork roast. ‘Char’ being fork and ‘siew’ being roast. I was named after the traditional cooking method for the dish: long strips of seasoned boneless pork are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire. Unique. Deliciously unique. Addicting! Trust me. You should try it when in Singapore.

[SINGAPORE] Kurasu Singapore at Odeon Towers Singapore

September 25th, 2017. I went to another coffee shop not far from the previous one. Kurasu. And it’s also recommended by Nicholas. Thank you @stormscape. 🙂 It’s not easy to find the place, but it’s not that hard. I just needed to concentrate with the road. Evidently, it’s inside Odeon Towers. Yaaaay, found it!

IMG_5766

Occupied a small area on level 2 inside brand new co-working space DISTRICT6, Kurasu gave a lovely addition to the floor. It’s a petite coffee bar with beautiful lady inside the bar. Fyi, Kurasu means living or lifestyle. Cool name, right? It came from Kyoto to Singapore not long ago. You can find coffee table and several tables with sofas.

Flat White $ 5.00

It’s quite heavy for me, but the texture was pretty smooth. I could taste a lil bit of nutty flavour. It’s only my second cup of coffee at the day, so I tried not to finish it instantly. LOL. Enjoyed it sip by sip.

IMG_5776

What a nice place you have, Kurasu. Keep up the good coffee.

[SINGAPORE] The Glasshouse Specialty Coffee and Toast Bar at CHIJMES Singapore

September 25th, 2017. I knew about Glasshouse from Nicholas Instagram @stormscape. 🙂 He’s a writer at @DanielFoodDiary. They’re famous bloggers in Singapore. So, yeah, I visited Glasshouse as soon as I had time on my first day in Singapore.

IMG_5743

Located in CHIJMES, Glasshouse occupied a simple place surrounded by glass, filled with plants and wooden furnitures. Well, from my hotel, I took bus to Raffles Hotel, then I walked to CHIJMES. When I arrived, I kinda got lost finding Glasshouse hahaha.. It’s far away from the entrance. It’s only 1 table left, but lucky me, another table available yaaay.

IMG_4206 IMG_5742 IMG_5746 IMG_5744 IMG_5750 IMG_5747 IMG_5745 IMG_5757 IMG_5756 IMG_5749 IMG_5748 IMG_5759 IMG_5760 IMG_5761

White $ 4.00

I loved the coffee. Super love. It’s light but not too creamy. Not too coffee. In fact, for me, it’s perfect. I also loved the after taste. It’s velvety and very smooth. Definitely a keeper.

IMG_5755

Heavenly Croissant $ 4.00

It’s basically a plain croissant. No filling at all. The texture was a little bit crumbly. But that’s fine for me. I love crumbly croissant. Those buttery layers.. hmmm..

IMG_5754

Wow Glasshouse, I love your place so very much. Definitely a must-visit coffee shop in Singapore.
