Coffee Club, Singapore

Two years ago I chanced upon this open concept restaurant on Orchard Road on my Christmas visit, being a vegetarian I was, I ordered the only sandwich that's completely vegetarian on the menu, and fell in love with it.

The Swiss Mushroom Melt sandwich.


Two years have passed and the food has changed since (from good to bad :( ), but it was a journey down the memory lane. I missed the experience tremendously.

My sandwich did not disapppoint completely.

My brother ordered the Really Huge Chicken Sandwich.

Which wasn't that huge and wasn't that grand.

However the smoked salmon Caeser Salad was rather pleasing.

Their star menu list, a dory crust thingy, was a disappoint though.

They might as well made my Swiss Mushroom Melt the star product instead of this.

For dirnks, my brother had the Pina Colada, which was ALRIGHT.

But anything better than the 1 dollar 50 cents too small Evian mineral water.

Hooters @ Gold Coast, Australia

hooters gold coast

Hooters in Gold Coast was much better than the one in Shanghai, experience and food wise.

One thing I adore and despite about Australia is in the proportion of their food servings. They're insanely and ridiculously huge.

Me and Stuart ordered the Tuna steak and Fish and Chips respectively, a combining order that can feed at least six Asians.

tuna steak

Medium rare tuna steak tasted a lot like beef steak and sashimi. It's tough, and chewy. Nothing like the tuna sashimi I used to have in Tokyo.

Stuart fish and chips was not a disappointment either. It was huge, and came with, not one, but TWO huge fish fillets.

I do sometimes wonder how the Australians dine. Their appetites are scary!

One thing I DO love about hooters, are their curly fries. They serve everything on a bed of curly fries. Which is a PLUS PLUS point for me anytime.

Services were great, food's good, portions big, definitely money worth.

Shake Shake McDonald Thailand

God I have not been updating this site for how long d! Jeez.

Too busy with my boutique and moving back and forth of KL and Bangkok and updating my nicolekiss blog till I no more time to scout for new place to eat.

Actually that's a lie. Just most of the time lazy to bring camera out only. Kekeke

Today I want to tell you just how much (for the N times) I LOVE LOVE LOVE McDonald in Thailand.

They always have sooo many varieties.

I decided to pop by McD today in Bangkok just before I leave this country, and found a whole new menu items available. It was amazing. If only I have so much stomach space, I would have bought everything.

15 baht pies
wow, 15 baht only.

Anyway, the reason I went to McD today was because few days ago as I passed by an McD outlet in Siam Paragon, I saw this promotion they're having in conjunction with Madagascar 2.

Now the best part is... Shake Shake promotion in Malaysia only has the shake shake fries.

In Bangkok, we (or they) have shake shake fries, shake shake nuggets and shake shake chicken strips. It's like OMG dream come true.

I've always wondered when they are ever going to come out with shaker nuggets.

And now not only they have shake shake fries and nuggets, they even have bloody chicken strips!!! Woo hoo!!!

price for my shake shake set

Without hesitation today, I ordered all three. :D

Because the McD at Robinson didn't have any seating, so I brought my take-aways to Starbucks to chill, over a good book of course. ;) (I'm so in love with Sherry Thomas right now, she writes some of the best romance novels)

Oh, and BBQ sauce in McD Thailand is different too.

thai bbq sauce

It's spicy. And tasted like a combination of Sweet Thai Chilli sauce and Msia BBQ sauce.

The fries was delightful.

seasoned fries

Better than the previous seasoning. I remembered they had Shrek before this, and it was seaweed seasoning. I'd say this paprika taste seasoning tasted way nicer.

It got even better with the nuggets.

shake shake nugget

For the first time, I was not tempted to dip my nugget in any sauce at all. No ketchup or bbq, nothing. The seasoning was perfect.

But I have to say the chicken strip took the cake. When eaten warm, the crispy skin was so orgasmic with the seasoning powder, which was thickly coating the whole strip.

shake shake chicken

Soft, tender, juicy.

I have never liked fried chicken that much before.

mcd and starbucks for lunch

Over my favourite cup of ice chocolate and a good book, I'd say it was a lovely lunch. :)
I should do this more often.
