8 Degree Taiwanese Bistro ~ 八度空间 ~

八度空间 (Ba Du Kong Jian), to most Chinese-pop fans, can easily relate to Jay Chou, Zhou Jie Lun. As true as it seems, the theme of this bistro that is located in a small corner along Serangoon road, is very much related to Jay Chou.

But first of all, let's see what this bistro has to offer us.

Of couse, what else can you expect other than a list of mouth-watering Taiwanese delicacies?! I have been to Taiwan before, and I can never forget waking up early in the morning & kick-start our day with a feast of Taiwan street-food! Although the items in the menu is kind of limited, but it's not hard to fill your stomach to its brim. Together with its narrow variety of side dishes, it is still able to satisfy late-night supper craves for Taiwanese delights.

奶茶 (Milk Tea) is not be missed. On the left is the usual Bubble Tea with mini pearls, and followed by Grass Jelly Milk Tea. Basically is grass jelly pudding poured over with milk tea in the cup. Would like to try other milk teas in the future, such as the Rose Milk Tea.

Fullhouse {CLOSED}

As far as we all know, 'Fullhouse' is quite popular over in our neighboring country, Malaysia. There was quite a hype going on when news has gotten to us they will be opening a flagship cafe in Singapore!

Well, I agree I'm kinda late in visiting this nice, cheery cafe. But, better to be late than never.

Before heading to 'Fullhouse', I had myself checked out some reviews by others. It seems that mostly gave thumbs up for the cafe environment, theme, and cosyness. On the other hand, little was given to the food. Hence, it intrigued me to try it out, and see whether my tastebud agrees with the others!

The cafe wasn't hard to find, due to its colorful mini cooper model car parked in their "car porch". Walked in, and realized it's just a shell?? Further realized it's located at level 2. Perhaps more directions can be shown to customers like me? :P

Service was not bad, and the lighting and environment suits the likes of mine. Food variety wasn't that wide though.

Ordered Forest Mushroom Soup for starter. They have clam chowder and soup of the day for options, but mushroom soup is always my main choice.  With almonds topping on it, it doesn't really mixes well with the soup. But the soup itself is kinda thick, and hence, I enjoyed it quite well.

On the left is Honeydew Milkshake, and of course, on the right is Mango + Grape topped with green apple jelly. In my opinion, I think honeydew milkshake is too bland and milky. But I love the Mango &Grape! The sweetness is just nice, and the fruitiness of both fruits literally flew down my throat smoothly :)
