REVIEW: One Man Coffee at One North

Dropped by One Man Coffee for a coffee break after having lunch at envy coffee. This is their 3rd outlet. Their first and second outlet is at Upper Thomson road and myvillage @ Serangoon Garden. I have never been to their outlets but they have one communal table and one standing bar here. Pretty small space for a coffee joint. I guess this is more for people to buy back coffee to their work space or grab a quick lunch. They do serve sandwiches here as well. 

KINESIS #01-15
Opening Hours: 8AM - 5PM (MON - FRI)

Ordered a cup of latte. They serve really good coffee here, Good for sleepy workers who want to stay awake. :)

REVIEW: The Dream Cafe at Toa Payoh

Went to this cafe after exercising with my friend at Toa Payoh Safra Energy one last week. I have always wanted to come to this place as I always jogged past this place during night time.  It was an unexpected find. I guess this place must be popular among students with their close vicinity to a few nearby schools. They offer free wifi too, along with student promotions. Although I did ask them about this, but they say there aren't any at the moment. Oh well. 

Address: Blk 163, Toa Payoh Lorong 1, #01-1016
Singapore 310163
Opening Hours: Mon to Sun: 1pm – 10:30pm

My friend did comment that the welcome kitty sign did imply that this might be a cat cafe. LOL Anyways it serves its purpose as it is. 

No one on a weekend lunch hour!! :o Pretty spacious place. 

As with other popular food choices among cafes, they offer the rainbow cake as well. Did not try that though! May be back to try out their cakes another day. 

Their menu is not really extensive though! 

I ordered the fish and chips! It comes with curly fries, mixed greens and sauce for the fish. The fish is fried to a golden brown and wasn't bad at all but not so fantastic as well. I guess it's just a normal dish. Did not find out what is their hot favorite here.

REVIEW: Big Bern's American Grill at Toa Payoh

Not sure what ever happened to Botak Jones but i was informed that this was created by the same boss behind Botak jones and they're back at Toa Payoh! The new located is quite near to their last location at the industrial park. I feel that their new location is not bad as it's air conditioned. 

Address: Blk 978 Toa Payoh North
#02-01 (food court/ canteen)
Opening Hours: Mon - Fri 11.30am-8pm 
Sat 11.30am-3pm 
Closed on Sundays.

Their portion is still as big as ever!! Their style has never changed. You pay extra and get to choose 2 sides. I am having pasta salad and spicy fries here. They gave me too much fries. I think i did not finish this! :) Ordered Cajun Chicken as always! It's grilled chicken breast topped with mozzarella cheese and spicy sauce. Find that the texture of the chicken is just nice. 

Here's my big bern's beef cheese burger. Sides are pasta salad and double baked cheese potato(mashed).  I saw that they have different pricing for small patty, single patty and double patty! Here's my single patty order. Juicy beef patty covered in cheese with tomatoes and cabbage.

REVIEW: GRUB cafe at Bishan Park

Went to GRUB for dinner with a friend awhile ago. I would not say this is ulu as there are 4 buses that goes to this place from Ang Mo Kio MRT. I have heard raving reviews about their Sakura Ebi Pasta so i decided to grab my friend to try this out with me. He ordered other food instead though. lol 

Address: 510 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, 569983 (Bishan Park)
Opening Hours: Weekdays 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM, 5:30 – 10:30 PM
Weekends 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM, 5:30 – 10:30 PM

Anyways, Did not quite like it. This was cooked in the agilo olio style. It was rather dry to me, Feels like like dry BCM. This was drizzled in mentaiko sauce with fried sakura ebi and big succulent prawns. I feel that they can be more generous with their mentaiko. :)

Sakura Ebi Pasta ($17 SGD)

Also ordered this churros. It comes with dark chocolate and tangy creme anglaise sauce for you to dip on. This was served warm, with  a cripsy outer layer and  soft on the inside. I quite like this. Good for a afternoon tea break. :)

Churros ($9 SGD)

REVIEW: The Daily Press, The Coffee Daily and Han's

Gonna lump all these into 1 post! 

This was back when it was still the halloween period where everywhere else is introducing their halloween inspired menu. Not sure if The daily press will bring this back next year though. 

This was Beetroot spaghetti with turkey bacon and green apples. I guess the redness of the pasta was caused by the beetroot cream. This taste a tad too salty for me but i finished it nonetheless. Green apples does nothing to the overall taste.

Went to the coffee daily cafe before my exams! The location of this cafe is quite ulu IMO as it is not near to any MRT station.

Address: 75 Brighton Cres, 559216
Opening Hours: Monday - Thursday and Sunday 930am - 1030pm
Friday and Saturday 930am - 1130pm

Really liked how this cafe is so conducive for studying. The inner part of the cafe is filled with people with their laptops. I ordered this All time american set. This consists of scrambled egg, pork bratwurst, streaky bacon, croissant and mixed greens. Did not managed to finish this! The bacon was too salty. Pork bratwurst was too difficult to chew. (Probably because of my braces) Was difficult cutting the croissant as well. Only the scrambled egg was good.

Did not know Han's has breakfast menu! I was at travelling to Joo Koon previously to walk to my camp for reservist. I went to the new mall (The Warehouse Club by NTUC FairPrice) for breakfast! Initially i was eating at toast box but level 2 had Han's. This was okay. Scrambled was overcooked on the outside but it is creamy inside. Ham was hard and not yummy. :(

REVIEW: Atmosphere cafe & bistro at Alexandra Central

Went to IKEA last week and decided to drop by this fairly new cafe & bistro for dinner. This is the second outlet by Atmosphere, with their first outlet at East coast park. Not sure about their ECP outlet but this one was particularly focused on their coffee art. They made used of a tablet for ordering of food and they provided an additional $1 cost for a 3D art for your drink. The whole cafe is exquisitely decorated to resemble some sort of a posh restaurant with chandeliers, European styled chairs, marbled tables and checked floor tiling. 

321 Alexandra Road #02-01 Alexandra Central Singapore 159971
Opening hours: 11am – 10pm

All my drinks comes with a 3D art! Mine is a adorable sleeping bear while the one is frog! Btw since this is my dinner, we didn't order any coffee. Both drinks are hot chocolates ($7.00 each).

Both of us ordered the same dish. This is their Seafood Aglio Olio($16.80). The pasta dish comes with sotong, prawns and bacon. Pasta was not al dente but it was satisfying nonetheless.

REVIEW: Toastbox at Woodlands, Causeway point

My work starts early at 8am or 9am every weekday as I don't like to rush for breakfast everyday. I always make it a point to set off for work earlier so I can have some peaceful time and enjoy my breakfast. I have been to Toastbox numerous times as it is one of the shops that open super early! 

The shop is located at Level 1 of causeway point but it is not within causeway point. It's located at the far right end when you exit the mrt station. It's towards the right when you enter causeway point. Not difficult to spot as there's always a snaking queue. Although the queue maybe long, but the waiting time is quite fast. They also have different sets such as their nanyang deights sets and toast sets. Spoilt for choices!  

Address: Causeway Point L1
1 Woodlands Square, #01-38 
Causeway Point S(738099) 
Opening hours: Daily: 7am to 10pm

Here's a simple egg noodle with egg and sausage. Oh you can see the tip of the sausage peaking out from the surface. 

Laksa! Look at how vibrant the color is! Just the right spiciness for this dish. 

Nasi lemak for breakfast? Cucumber, egg, chicken wing and ikan bilis with white fragrant rice. 

I think they call this po luo you. It's just a bun with butter in between. 

Whole wheat toast with kaya and butter, paired with coffee and eggs. This is actually one of the set. 

Mee reubus!! This is my absolutely favorite! It is not spicy at all and the noodles are always so springy. Prawns are a hit and miss as it may not be fresh sometimes. There's also tofu and hard boiled eggs. 

Mee siam! Don't really like this dish as the bee hoon is too soggy. I guess the problem is the sauce? 

Butter sugar thick toast! They sliced it nicely for you so you can just pick the cube up with the stick and eat. Very convenient. :)

Same dish but this one is kaya flavored.

REVIEW: Joe & Dough Cafe at Square 2

Joe & Dough was founded in 2009 with the dream to deliver the best coffee and sandwich experience to many people.It is another one of the cafes that i visited recently with free WIFI! I think i can have another list of wifi cafes already. Anyways, Joe and Dough is known for their coffee and gourmet sandwiches. Their coffee comes from the best quality Arabica beans.They also serves cakes and all-day breakfasts. 

Address: SQUARE 2, 10 Sinaran Drive #01-156 
Singapore 307506
Opening Hours: Monday - Sunday: 8.00am - 9.30pm

Here's what i ate : Truffled egg mayo with lumpfish roe (SGD $8.50)  and Latte (SGD $5.60)

The truffle in the egg mayo was not prominent and lump fish roe did not accentuate the breakfast set at all. I did quite like how creamy the egg mayo is and its nice to eat together with the bread.  The coffee is good though! How nice it is to bring your lappy here for work or just to chill with your friends. :)

This is one of their quotes on their wall which i find meaningful. Eat. Sip. Love.

REVIEW: Jewel Cafe and Bar at Rangoon Road

I have been wanting to visit this cafe for ages but they're always closed when i was there. The alternative was always to visit brunches cafe. :X Anyways so they're finally opened, their dining space was so spacious, it spanned into the second floor as well. I was here after my first paper 2 weeks ago. One of things that made me come here was their Free wifi and the other was their chili crab pasta! 

Opening hours: Closed on Monday
9am - 1030pm Tuesday - Thursday and Sunday
9am - 11.30pm Friday - Saturday
Address: 129 Rangoon Rd, 218407 (Near to Farrer Park Mrt station)


Outdoor seating for smokers or people who just want to sit outside

The cafe was pretty dark so.. it's a miracle the pictures turn out so vivid and bright! Thanks to photo editing apps. :X 

 Anyways this pasta wasn't very spicy as compared to the one i had at Nassim Hill Bakery & Bistro. It is more of a moderate spicy after taste. It would have been better if the crab meat were served in chunks instead of slices. Mantous for you to dip into the sauce as well. It was overall a good dish. I ordered a latte and it was not bad as well. 

Chili Crab Pasta (SGD $20)
Latte (SGD 5.50)
Close up!

Look at how big this place is! Definitely conducive for studying or meetings!

Oh yes, the staffs do not walk around enough, Did not refill my water. >_>

REVIEW: Rainbow Cottage Cafe at Ang Mo Kio

Wanted to try out neighbour hood cafes at Ang Mo Kio so i decided to grab my friend to go to this place! Not sure if their cafe name "Rainbow Cottage Cafe" is planned in conjunction with their menu as they are selling the famous rainbow and paddlepop cake! IMO, paddle pop cake is brought famous by Tian Kee & Co. Anyways, their interior is not very packed and tables are neatly spread out. Love that they decorated that little area with clouds and cute bears! 

Address: 452 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, 560452
Opening Hours: 11am - 9.30pm daily

Close up! 

Different kind of cakes! Paddle pop cake only left one! 

I guess this gives them the 'cottage' vibes? lol 

Different kind of ice cream! Unfortunately, didn't have the stomach space for waffles! Waffles should be paired with ice cream.

They served my cake first.. Should have told them not to serve this first, but their aircon is sufficient to keep the cake intact. Did not melt at all.. unlike my experience at Tian Kee & Co. Nothing special about this cake though, but i have to say that the color is quite vivid. I wonder what kind of coloring goes into this. 

Ordered a latte as well! Very nice latte art to go with my cake. 

A dinner must always go with a main dish! Here's my creamy carbonara pasta. Although the pasta wasn't al-dente, the sauce was very good. :)

Will be back to try their waffle and ice cream next time! :)
