A place that was recommended on New City Beat (城人新杂志) and it really caught the eye of EVERYONE in the family. In fact it was mummy and daddy that asked me to book this place for lunch with them! (: I was overjoyed and when I was there I really wanted to try everything! haha it’s an Italian wine bistro that is opened by Koreans! It originated in Seoul. How cool is that!

I love the decor of the place. Filled with wine and wine glasses, bulbs and bulbs of dried garlic. Very cosy, especially the booth seats. (: AWESOME.

As there were only the 3 of us, we had to limit our choices to the following three :

The Anchovy Garlic Cream Fondue : served with whole baked garlic cloves, vegetables and bread. This was a crowd pleaser I tell you. SO GOOD. Dad didn’t leave a single drop. You see, he is a garlic lover. (:

small but mighty.

the waiter in the background squeezing the garlic out. YUMS.

next up : The Garlic Bread Tower

how cute is this yummy little thing? STUFFED with heaps of garlic. But not too overwhelming for some reason. PERFECT!

press the garlic in well then…

cut it into 8 pieces and pop them into your mouth! (:

how pretty is this pizza? it’s the Garlic Snowing Pizza (:

mayo base, so it’s a little sweet to the palette, crispy slices of garlic, prawns, pineapple bits and the snow? Parmesan! This came in second. The Anchovy garlic cream still top the chart!

roll it up, and CHOMP ! see how thin the base is?

love them both to bits. (:

prepare for my return at the end of the year. MORE THAN ONCE !

A Sugee Cake Just To Say Thank You.

29 Jun

I recently stopped work and really wanted to thank my boss and I knew from the very start sugee cake was her facourite cake of all time. So I couldn’t not bake it for her. I never really baked it before, and was a little nervous to be giving her my very first attempt to be honest. But as I was leaving for Melbourne very soon, I didn’t have much time to bake another. So a successful first attempt was what I was praying for!

Thankfully, I read Ju’s post on The Little Teochew (yes the same awesome person who baked and shared her Japanese Cheesecake recipe, thank you!) a couple of months ago, and bookmarked the recipe of the sugee cake she baked (adapted from Cherry on a Cake) and hers looks amazing! So I took a deep breath and plucked up my courage and gave this a try.

Ju did use almond silvers but I didn’t have that, and used pumpkin seeds instead. However, they didn’t stay on top and sank all the way to the bottom instead! hehe I must say it didn’t look very pretty, but it did taste pretty good! and goes well with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Thankfully, my boss enjoyed it very much! (: So thank you Zurin, for sharing the recipe, and thank you Ju for giving the tips!
