Park Road Kitchen

We seemed to be constantly eating lately.  It must be the festive season and time to pamper ourselves, time to be jolly. “Keep calm and carry on eating” is our temporary tagline for December. After a delicious nibbles of Gozleme at Titirangi Village Market, we sat down for a proper brunch.  There were two very nice village…

Titirangi Village Market & Visitor Centre

Time out on a good sunny weekend always starts with a market. Last Sunday, we visited Titirangi Village Market. This is an awesome market of about 130 stalls selling quality local arts and crafts, produce, food along with live music. There were not too many food stalls but we found one stall selling the best…

Everything in a pie

The long German Bratwurst sausage didn’t get all eaten at our Jolly BBQ last evening. It did not taste as good as most German sausages as that particular one seemed to be a bit dry (maybe we overcooked it) and looked and tasted more Currywurst than Bratwurst, perhaps too much curry seasoning.  It wasn’t too bad,…

Dine with a view

Eastern Beach is my local beach, my favourite and a safe swimming spot in summer.  A nice place to relax, smell the breeze, strolling and walking my dog, a place where families come for bbq on the beach. Once upon a time, there was an Italian restaurant where diners get spectacular views of the water especially when they got…

Kim Chiam and Kiam Chye

I found some Kim Chiam and Kiam Chye in my fridge. Kim Chiam (lily flower buds) and Bok Gee (dried black fungus) are synonymous with Peranakan or Nyonya cooking.  These two ingredients are the essential in cooking Nyonya Chap Cai (mixed vegetable stew).  Since I have no Bok Gee in my pantry, today’s dish is a creation from Kim…

Goode Brothers and goode food

Whether dining out (or in), it is my habit to quickly take photos of the spread before everyone dug in.  Good presentation are only temporary before the food gets eaten up. Goode Brothers is our local hangout, for drinks, brunch or dinner when I don’t feel like cooking.  Besides the refreshing cocktails, this restaurant serves…

Kumara, Spinach & Bacon Quiche

I love to cook whenever I have a weekday off. Today, I bought a bag of spinach and there were bacon, eggs and three orange Kumaras (Beauregard) aka Sweet Potatoes in my pantry.  Trying to minimise carbs in my diet lately, I did away with pastry sheets and used the Kumaras as the base for…

Three in One

I call myself a foodie. I love to cook and I love to eat (obviously). I believe “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.” I am not often bothered about calories but lately, I have to admit that I could lose some weight hence I decided to go for…
