A Celebration.

12 Jun
Hard Rock Cafe
Festive Terrace
Resorts World Sentosa

It has been 8 years since I’ve met up with them. And it’s been really nice to be invited to celebrate their birthdays with them! (: and even better then the celebration is at a place I’ve never been before : Hard Rock Cafe at Resorts World!

I totally felt like a tourist, cause I got lost. I pretty much covered the whole RW in like 20 mins. haha But well, it’s all worth it! The catching up and having the company of a few of my ex-classmates were just awesome!

Thanks for inviting me babes! (: It was really good to catch up and I’m very happy to hear all of you are doing well! Hope to meet up once more before I head back!

For the life of me, I still can’t believe Hard Rock Cafe is not located in the Hard Rock Hotel. Although Mish told me it’s because they have their own signature restaurant in the hotel, so they had to move Hrd Rock cafe somewhere else. Oh wells. Love the atmosphere, but the lack of staff resulted in overcooked beef, and slow service. But nonetheless, it was a really good night!

(ps : thanks Choy for the photos!)

the starter which I missed! Looks good aye? hehe Huge portion though! Everyone was kinda full after sharing this!

Choy’s bacon and beef burger! Was yummy! (:

Love how they used the toothpick with the flag to keep everything together.

My steak sandwich! (: It was well done though I asked for medium. But the flavours were good! So I shall not complain too much! (:

Emma’s and Ven’s mac and cheese! (:

and I can’t remember what’s the name of Jem’s dish! But it looks yummy! hehe

Boulangerie
Festive Hotel
Resorts World Sentosa

our dearest Mish was so sweet to buy cakes from Boulangerie that are made from a French pastry chef! (: And they not only good good, they tasted yummy! Thanks babe!

I took this one home! (: Always have been and always be a chocolate person! hehe

Can’t wait to meet up again and have more yummy food and good company! (: Haven’t laughed like that for a long time! Always good to meet up with old friends!

Even before I got home, I have been seeing and hearing about Everything With Fries. So when I got back, I just really needed to give this place a try! I decided to head there with Stephie one night and we really ate ourselves silly! Sadly, we were so stuffed we weren’t able to have the nutella tart that we planned from the start. haha guess we just have to head back again soon! (:

We started the night with floats! (: I had root beer and steph had coke!

we haven’t had floats in a while and when it first came, we poked our straws in and it started flowing out! haha by the time we sucked on our straws to stop it from overflowing, the drink was more than half gone! heh

our starter was a recommendation by the waitress (: Skinny wings! she said it was their signature, and so we tried it! It was really yummy!  Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. A really good recommendation indeed! We realise the reason why it’s called skinny wings, it’s not cause it’s healthy. haha but cos it has only one bone! they took out the other (:

Steph ordered creamy salmon in a cup! It’s like a thick and creamy stew that will allow you to dip the fries into it and indulge! (: I liked it, cause I am someone who loves gravy. haha and to me, this was really yummy! and tasty hehe

how good does that look? (:

my pork cutlet sandwich! (: it was so good. and I chose to flavour my fries with sour cream and onion. hehe really good i tell you. (:

and every main comes with a side of caesar salad! which i love!

definitely going back for nutella tart. SOON! (:

Nandos : Pre-opening Singapore

18 May
Nandos
Bugis Junction
(Malay Street)
200 Victoria Street
#01-85 Bugis Junction

Thanks to Twitter I got a chance to enter the competition of winning pre-opening tickets for Nandos!

YES! Nandos has arrived in Singapore, at long last! (: And boy was it good!

Although there are only limited things we can order. but everything was freee! hehe (: What we were given were Nandos dollars, hehe so cute! 300 dollars to be exact.

So, almost immediately upon arrival, we were greeted by an enthusiastic bunch of people and were shown to our seats. It was a little different from the Nandos in Melbourne, as it’s not self-service. Rather we were served. They gave us a brief but clear explanation as to how the night was going to be and which are the dishes we could order.

As a starter, we were recommended to order the the peri soup and I was so glad you took that recommendation. It was really quite good! (:

and the food came very quickly too!

the happy faces (:

I had an extra ticket (I was given a table of 4) I asked Stephie to join us! (:

out chicken! (: hehe We ordered the HOT! we kinda felt that it’s actually spicier in Singapore as compared to the one we had in Melbourne. (: to suit the taste buds in Asia i suppose? it’s good! not complaining at ALL!

our sides! (: we were given a choice of 2 sides each! The must have that we all ordered as one of our sides was the peri peri chips. Then we ordered a different second side each.

I had the peri corn, steph had the peri potato salad, dad had the rice and mum had the coleslaw.

We all really enjoyed ourselves! (: Everyone who misses Nandos should really go give it a try! You won’t regret it!

Easy Pork Chops with Apple Sauce

3 Mar

Sorry about the recent fascination with pork chops. haha Baby and I got it pretty cheap at Footscray market and we just couldn’t resist buying! We ended up buying almost 3kg of pork chops. haha

so that’s why I’m experimenting on different recipes that I can get my hands on! (:

Tonight. I decided to go all western! and what goes better with pork than apple sauce? it’s like a match-made in heaven!

The apple sauce could be done in less than 10 mins or you could even do it the day before and make it hot just before you serve your pork chops! (: and it’s not difficult at all!

Recipe (Adapted by Heat Beads)

Apple Sauce

2 Grannysmith apples, cut into small pieces

25g butter

2 tsp caster sugar (or alter to your liking)

Steps :

1. Peel and chop the apples into small pieces. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a moderate heat.

2. Add the apples, cover the pan and cook down until the apples have softened. Sweeten with sugar to taste.

3. Using an electric stick blender, process the apples until smooth. Alternatively, push the apples through a sieve. If necessary, add a dash of water to thin down the apple sauce. Leave on one side while you fry the chops.

Pork Chops

3 Pork Chops

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Olive oil (for frying)

Salt and Pepper to season

A dash (or more) Tabasco sauce

Steps :

1. Make light incisions in a criss-cross pattern on one side of the pork chops.

2. Brush the chops with olive oil and place on a plate scored side upwards.

3. Squeeze over the lemon juice and push the  garlic into the incisions. Leave for about twenty minutes.

4. Just before you fry it (or on the barbecue), add the tabasco and season well.

5. Cook the chops, scored side upwards for about 5-7 minutes on one side – until slightly charred and crisp. Flip the chops over and cook for a further minute or two. By this time, the chops should be tender and cooked through. The shorter cooking time helps stop the garlic from burning. (Don’t worry about cooking it longer than this time especially if your chops are on the bone, it will stop it from over-cooking!)

Bon Appetite!
