Hello! it's been awhile since i posted a 'what i eat in a day' food post. just sharing some ideas on what everyone can make for your everyday meal. enjoy~

1) Eggs benedict. The poached eggs are nestled nicely on a bed of portobello mushrooms, smoked salmon and butter toast with 3 cherry tomatoes as sides. I garnished the eggs with a generous serving of Hollandaise sauce and also mentaiko furikake. Link to how to make the poached eggs here.

2) I recently re-posted one of my most fav risotto recipes~ Balsamic risotto. I made it again and it was so yummy. Get the recipe here.

3) Made some red pesto pasta with mushrooms and ikea meatballs! 

Making Egg Benedicts at Home

Hihi, i am back with another #myeverydaybreakfast post~ Here i am making poached eggs according to Jamie Oliver's video. I bought the hollandaise sauce from fairprice finest at the outlet at Katong. I used white bread instead of burgers. I also put ham and portobello mushrooms on top. According the video, you're supposed to cling wrap the eggs and cooked in boiling water for 8.5 minutes. The thing is it is difficult to tie the cling wrap together. I managed to get some nice eggs after trying 2 times. XD I sprinkled some red pepper powder on top coz it looks too plain. 

Tai Cheong Bakery - Egg Tarts from Hong Kong

These egg tarts has been on my wish list for quite sometime now. So i have already tried the BAKE cheese tarts at Ion, it's time to try out the famous egg tarts from Tai Cheong Bakery. I have not personally tried the ones in Hong Kong so its not fair to do a comparison. There was also no queue when i was there in the morning. The custard center leans to the sweet side, while the crust is full of buttery goodness. $7.60 for 4 pieces. It comes with a gorgeous emerald box.

Bake Cheese Tart at ION Orchard

Hmmm.. i wonder why i did not try this in japan? dk the difference between the jap ones and sg ones so my review is solely based on this local version. I only ate 2 tarts without refrigerating, the rest are shared or eaten the next day. It has a soft cottony cheese center with a crispy outer pastry. Best to eat it when it's hot!

Dinner at Foxhole Cafe at Hougang

I went to foxhole cafe at Hougang for awhile before meeting up with a friend to attend some Buddha teachings class. It was enriching. haha. I didn't i will like it but it is not so bad as compared to the scripture reading where they made us stand up and bow many times. Anyways this cafe has a very beautiful unicorn mural on the second floor. You make your order on the first floor and make your way up to the second floor for your meal . I wonder why its unicorn instead of a fox? 

I ordered the Carbonara. My first reaction to that was how come portion so small? :( The presentation looks good with the poached egg in the middle. The sauce could have been more creamy and be more generous in their portion size. You can sit by the window and admire the view outside. It overlooks a huge field.

Waffles at Baby Moo Creamery

412y Moo Creamery is a relatively new gelato cafe at Toa Payoh. They took over from The little prince creamery. I don't remember which flavour of gelato i ordered but the waffle was surprisingly okay. The exterior maybe crispy and seemed hard but the interior is quite soft but needs a stronger buttermilk flavor. Overall i think it is not bad but it is quite hard to stand out these days with so many well established cafes around like creamier in Toa payoh which draws a lot of crowd daily.

Pancetta Fungi Pasta at EagleWings Loft

As you all know, i am a huge fan of pasta and i saw this review on this Pancetta Fungi Pasta at EagleWings Loft. I knew i had to try this! I went to school one day to work on assignments and this cafe was along the way wor, why not right? The cafe layout was rather narrow. haha. The al dente pasta was arrived in a waft of hot tantalizing smoke. The food may look very good but the taste isn't. It is salty AF.

Mi Le Vegetarian Breakfast at Toa Payoh

Mi Le vegetarian has been around since i'm young. Can say i ate this as i grew up. :X They are basically like a cai png store but vegetarian version.

Lunch at the Masses~

I came for the C&C pasta~ I ordered the FANCY 忧 lunch set and it allows me to choose between 3 starters, choice of egg, C&C pasta and Chargrilled Pumpkin. The C&C pasta is served cold and it features al dente angel hair pasta noodles drizzled in luscious lobster bisque with crab meat and topped with caviar. 
I also have a choice of 3 main dishes. Duroc Pork Belly or Pan-Seared Barramundi or Angus 200-Days Grain Fed Striploin (180g), I chose the Barramundi but it seems like i made the wrong choice. haha. It comes with Vegetable Bohémienne, Clams, Fig-Infused Clams Jus. The fish was oddly chewy and difficult to break apart. Not nice!

Breakfast at Botanist Singapore!

I think i actually had this before Antoinette. haha. I ordered the highly recommended Breakfast Platter and got them to change the corn to salad coz hard to eat corn with braces. I have nothing to complain about this well executed platter. The platter consists of bratwurst sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, hashbrown, salad, avocado, bread and framboise macker raspberry jam. Everything on it was good but i didn't eat the avocado. lol :x This cost $23 which i find slightly on the pricier side? But maybe it will make you feel better if you share it?
