Dian Xiao Er (Healthier Dining)

Needless to say, majority of diners are gearing towards healthier lifestyle and nutritious dining options. Yet saying of healthy food, most would relate to more vegetable, less meat, and even less tastier food. All in all, ruining your appetite and unable to justify the money spent!

When Dian Xiao Er (店小二) sent out an invitation to me, in conjunction with their partnership with Health Promotion Board (HPB), I am quite skeptical to the kind of food served! Yet, this seems like a considerable move to attract a new group of diners to Dian Xiao Er - Health Conscious Diners.

Taiwan Railway Bento

When people hear of bento, most would link it to Japanese Bento, where parents will prepare interesting food patterns for their kids to bring to school for lunch. But, what about railway bento?

Having originated all the way from Taiwan, and as the name describe, such bentos are usually seen in railways or trains, consumed by the Taiwanese while buzzing their way around. While in Singapore, we have to suffer the heavy fine even for sucking on sweets in trains, the best we can enjoy it is to visit Taiwan Railway Bento, a small shop space located both in CT Hub and International Plaza!

Yong Kee Seafood Restaurant

Yong Kee Seafood Restaurant may not be easy to locate as it is housed in a coffeeshop, Shing Boon Hwa Food Centre. Furthermore, it is pretty much hidden behind the construction walls. But despite this, I manage to locate it. Yong Kee Seafood Restaurant, or rather Shing Boon Hwa Food Centre, is at the edge of a conjuring junction between Dickson Road and Jalan Besar. For a more prominent building as a reference, it is opposite Sim Lim Tower.

Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen

I believe most would have already knew that Liang Court is like a Japanese nirvana, as most of the stores in there such as food, mall activities, etc are Japanese Thus I strongly conclude that for authentic Japanese food, Liang Court should never go wrong. Chanced upon a Japanese style noodle soup restaurant, Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen, which translates to Volcano Pork Ramen. Apparently, this was what intrigued me trying it!

Headed for an early dinner, and the usual lively Japanese greetings will really lift your mood up. Remembering entering several Japanese restaurants and having to hear those monotonous greetings? Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen spared your eyes from it, and you can literally feel the happy workers buzzing all around the shop to serve the diners.

November 8 Coffee & Company

I have known and been to this area, Thomson, for years, but not even once I took notice of this building called Thomson V Two. It is kind of like a hidden gem where it houses several cafes in this humble site. Needless to say, with the numerous sprouting along the main road of Upper Thomson Road, Thomson V Two can easily be forgotten.

It took me several turns and getting my navigation on track to locate this building (all blames credited to my GPS)... Was there early, thus took a walk and realized there is nothing except cafes, which took up a majority of the spaces. November 8 is the minority of the cafes opening at 1200 hours, but we decided to stick to our choice whilst walking around the others.

Wood Shed

If you have never been to Rangoon road, it is somewhere off Balestier road. I have been there before with my parents to try the bak kut teh many years back.

Wood Shed Cafe is located at around the secluded corner of Rangoon Road, at least it is to me. If you have heard of the Bak Kut Teh in Rangoon road, Wood Shed Cafe will be easy to locate! Plus with their color-rotan chairs placed outside, they sure know how to provide "eye-candies" for onlookers :)

Miska Cafe

Took a day off from the hectic work week that was about to start, and landed myself by the "sea", indulging myself in the land of the rich!

Miska Cafe is one of the affordable cafe in Quayside Isle, as what I've briefly researched, besides Kith Cafe. In addition, Miska Cafe is set to be the concept of Mediterranean, offering fresh with quality ingredients.

Backstage Cafe

Cafe set in an industrial area, wasn't what I thought would be sloppy service and food.

Backstage Cafe can be easily seen from along the street due to it's big signage!
