My gf has just found out that Mr Chew Chong Meng, one of my favorite local celebrity has set up a cafe business in Singapore recently. d’Good Cafe has been operating for a few years in Singapore. We decided to head down to the Holland Village branch as we want a cozy area to chill and relax.
My gf ordered a Green Tea Cream Frappe while I ordered a cup of Maple Seasalt Latte. The Green Tea Frappe was sweet to a certain extent, while the Seasalt Latte was simply quite salty to a certain extent.
To be honest, we were super full from our buffet lunch. Unfortunately, the smell of the pancake from the other table was wafting to our table.
After much persuasion to the reluctant bloated gf, she finally gave in to my incessant whining about us sharing a pan of pancake. Yay! We both decided on the same Strawberry berries flavor.
Oozing in Strawberries, cherries and Vanilla Ice-cream
I was shocked by the size of the pan. I was expecting it to be a dainty looking size but it was the size of your Mother’s saucepan. Fresh and hot from the oven, the staffs were nice enough to place the pan on a serving tray for easy transportation from the counter to the table.
We were looking at it with heart shapes forming around the corner of our eyes until we realized that the Ice cream is melting at the side. One bite of it was simply spellbinding. There was a hint of sour in the strawberries and a bloom of sweetness developed soon right after that slight tinge of piquant flavor. Its taste was as good as it looks!
First and foremost, I love meat. I believe it’s a god given right for us to eat meat as we the human species are omnivorous by nature.
My gf and I were craving for some tender fried crispy chicken last Sunday. So we headed down to Arnold’s Chicken at Yishun to satisfy our craving.
It’s one of the pioneer Halal eateries in Singapore back in the 80s and is still going strong for 30 years. Hurray for them!
As usual, we ordered our usual meal, the 2 pieces meal. It’s $7.30 for a plate. =)
It has 2 pieces of specially marinated chicken, which are deep fried till golden brown and served alongside with their crunchy potato fries and coleslaw. In this case, we preferred the mash potato as can be seen from the picture above. =)
What I really liked about Arnold is that their Fried Chicken meat has a homely taste to it. It’s taste like a dish, which your Mum or Dad has just fried it for dinner. A smooth tender chicken meat nestled up in its delicate crispy golden brown skin is just too perfect to let it go away.
For those who are feeling hungry after reading this, below is the address for you to hop over for tonight dinner.

It was an interesting film of an acclaimed Bosnian-born Australian barista Sasa Sestic who traveled to various origins in search of coffees of the highest imaginable quality and how he managed to win the Barista Championships in 2015.
An inspiring film really. His obsession, his hard work and passions toward coffee is something to learn. The crowd was cheering for him in and out of the screen.
Gf and I were supposed to head down to AMK Coffee Bean for some chilling session when she told me she want to try Chocolate Origin Lava Cake. It costs $5.50 for a cup. =D
Oozing with Lava
My eyes widen when I took a bite of it. The warm brownie with the sweet lava spot in the middle on top was baked to the right temperature and the vanilla Ice cream at the bottom was creamy and sweet. When you combined both of the flavors together, you will get an unforgettable sinful experience. =)
My gf and I were craving for a drink in the middle of the week and decided to head down to DTMM for their 1 for 1 Beergarita promotion.
I order a Summerita while my love ordered a lycheerita. There are 3 choices of beer such as Hite, Soju and Negra Modelo for you to choose from. We both decided on Soju, as we love to take on a drink challenge every now and then. (Yes to 16.9%)
*We headed home like a pair of high donkeys after that. (It’s pretty strong)
But of course, it was a Wednesday night. So we paced our drink to 2 hours plus while chomping on our Bulgogi Tortilla Pizza and Bulgogi Fries.
It was a wonderful blend of flavors bursting at the tip of our tongues. It was dripped with bulbobi sauce and sour cream. On top of that, the slight spicy taste of Bulgogi Beef certainly added an extra punch in such a big basket of bar bite.
Bulgogi Tortilla Pizza
It was served in a nice saucepan onto our table. That was delicious enough for us to eyes feast at it. I really need to talk about the cheese on it. It’s fantastically cheesy! Every slices you pulled up from the pan, you can see the cheese lining from the side. The Bulgogi beef was tender in all the right places and the crust was just nice to my preference. Not too crusty and not too thin. A perfect thickness for my teeth to bite into. Yumz~
