REVIEW: Brunches Cafe (2nd Visit)

Went to brunches cafe for lunch again before heading somewhere near. This cafe is just so photogenic in anywhere possible but their pasta is kind of meh.. at least the 2 that i have tried. 

Seriously memorized with all these beautiful decorations! look at the car behind! its actually converted to become a table. 

Their coffee was alright though! Love that they put little motivational notes in these flower vases on each table. :)

Pasta wasn't horrible but it is not the best carbonara that i have tasted. Although i have ordered the creamy carbonara but it's too creamy for me!! Could taste the strong milky taste in the sauce. It is overwhelming.

REVIEW: Letoile Cafe at Farrer Park

I went to letoile cafe quite some time back to work on an assignment. talk about endless assignments!! It was a short walk from Farrer park Mrt to this cafe. It's located at the intersection between owen road and dorset road. Not very difficult to spot this. L'etoile cafe is inspired by the indie cafes in Japanese. It's influenced by Japanese and French style. 

Address: 160 Owen Rd 218953
Opening Hours: Weekdays 11am - 10pm 
Weekends 9am - 10pm 

I went there on a weekday morning as I do not have work that day. The place is rather quiet and spacious with a second storey! Hardly see any cafes that have second storey unless you're referring to McDonald or Starbucks. Crowd starts to comes in during lunch time so secure a seat first! 

Here's my carrot cake with a nice iced latte! Don't really enjoy eating carrot cakes but i ordered one there. It was moist and easy to chew. :)

What really brought me there is because of their free WIFI!! 

Black and white photos all framed up adorning a white wall.

Very bad panorama picture of the cafe! But you can see the nice and cozy environment this cafe provides and perhaps a glimpse of the japanese/french influences here.

REVIEW: Kagari Ginza Ramen (篝) at Ginza, Tokyo

So I was at Ginza on 2 occasion to try out Kagari Ramen. I have mentioned that if there's a long queue the food there should be super delicious. Look at the long queue!!! 

Downside of this space is there's no shelter!! What if it rains? And also its summer when I went to japan so it is super hot with the sun shining down at max power. Nonetheless people still queued. There's a mix of locals and tourists in the queue too. The shop is located in an alleyway so don't miss it besides it will be recognizable when you see the queue!

Address: 4-4-1 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
Opening Hours: Mon - Fri: 11:00-15:30, 17:00-22:30
Saturday and Holidays: 11:00-15:30, 17:00-21:00
Closed Sundays

Not sure how long i queued but i think it was more than 15 minutes. The space is quite small. I think not more than 10 people can sit inside.

Most ramen shops in Japan have an open concept Kitchen.

Uncle hard at work preparing my delicious ramen.

Menu! They will pass you this menu for you to see and will take your order while you're queuing so you wont have to wait too long when you're seated inside. 

I ordered this on my first visit as i did not know what was the most famous dish there. This was good too! It comes with a bowl of Nimboshi Shoyu both. It is made with dried small sardines and soy sauce consomme. It also comes with A bowl of egg, roast pork, yam, corn and not sure whats that green thing and also the noodles topped with seaweed.  The broth was rich and thick just the way i like it. Noodles was the thick hakata kind here and was al dente. 

After reading up on their most famous dish and seeing people ordering this while i ordered the dipping soba, i came here for a second visit! >.>

I was served with this bowl of rich, thick and creamy chicken broth(Tori Paitan (鶏白湯))! This is the best chicken broth ramen i have ever tasted!! Seriously yummy!!!!! It comes with an egg, chicken meat, cherry tomato, corn and yam. Noodles was aldente as well. My experience here was nothing but the best. I normally don't go back to the same store for a second visit as i wanted to try out new food but i will consider coming back here. <3
