And, I have also been quite let down by a number of surf n turf dishes when eating out, which is usually a lackluster steak and seafood combo.

So, this post is actually meant for the guys, for if you ever need to appease your lady, you should go on reading ...
And for me personally, nothing tops making the woman of my life smile more than putting a pack of Royce chocolate in front of her.

Yet, even more amazing, more and more new brands have sprouted offering very identical experiences, and Good Morning Nanyang Cafe is one such new offering.

And to make it more interesting, I decided to end it with some oriental dressing to give it a lighter touch, making it a light supper to go easy on the tummy.

The main attraction here is really the price, which is really surprising, considering that this is quite a pricey location, rental wise. But the bistro seems to fetch a very healthy young crowd.

Undeterred, we finally managed to get there on a Saturday morn (very early indeed!) to try out their very popular pork congee and noodles.

The thing is, she had never used to like pasta dishes, and so it was rare that she enjoyed pasta this much, and hence, I relented.

The best of these, however, still resides within Chinatown, and my favorite one is the one referred by my friend of 20 years, called Mei Heong Yuen Dessert at Temple St.

Zion Market itself has a couple of char kway teow stalls, but the one that is most notable happens to only operate at night, to cater to the partying crown nearby.

It is situated at one corner near the main road, and despite the less than adequate surroundings, we were treated to a wonderful concoction of chicken rice balls and Hainan Chicken Rice.

I wanted to do a simple recipe for some of you out there who have recently taken to cooking (thanks for the emails!), and I encourage you to try this out.
So, funny enough, the other place did not turn out positive, but we were intrigued by the seemingly unending traffic that was resonating at this chinese outlet just nearby.

A good friend of mine who lives in Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 brought me to this corner stall at Kebun Bahru market one morning and I was hooked.

It is one of the most distinguishable local dishes, and one that not many can get it perfectly.
The one place where we really fancy our hokkien mee is the one at Joo Chiat Place called Kim's Seafood Place, and in fact, they have a sister branch very nearby as well.

We understand that Skinny Pizza has been around for some time, and has its first outlet sometime in Suntec, which unfortunately, we haven't been to for ages.

There we were, standing in the middle of a supermart at Thomson, thinking of what to whip up for dinner. And then, I turned to Pauline and asked, "Why don't you choose something?"
And I happen to have a good friend who often sends his daughter to classes here and it was him who introduced me to this somewhat new place called Jonker's Nyonya Deli.

What has transformed from a personal library, has somehow taken a life of its own.
This marks my 40th post, in this food blog that just started a little less than 2 months back in mid August.

It is classic steak and potatoes, but with a small added twist that can make a whole of difference - bacon.

We were there on a Sunday evening and as expected, there was a sizeable queue, which meant you had to wait about 20 mins or so before you could get a table.

Here, I will just touch on our own personal rave, which is Kampong Chicken Rice at Upper Thomson.
Kampong chicken differs from conventional chicken in the sense that the chickens are reared as free rein, which tend to result in a more tender and succulent meat, and less fat.
The first one is Songfa which is just located opposite Clarke Quay Central, and has 2 outlets almost next to each other.
The other fav of mine is Founder at Balestier, but I will leave that for another post.
