Quiet Lunch: Dean & Deluca

image

Decided to break off from my colleagues for lunch as I need my own quiet moments of peace and tranquility.

Usually when I dine alone, I will prefer to treat myself with more expensive food to satisfy my stomach.Ā  So I went to Dean & Deluca located at the dying yet surviving Orchard Central 4th floor. I ordered a take away since the place looks crowded. But there are empty tables and seats so I decided to ask if I can dine in instead.

Salmon & Spinach Quiche. 8.20 & a cuppa of hot Green Tea Latte. 6.00

I am not a big fan of quiche but this made me a fan. The ingredients are nicely placed where every mouthful of the quiche is filled with smoked salmon and spinach. The crust is nice to my taste. It is not too hard or watery.
Green tea latte is on the milkier side. Purists green tea fans might not like the taste of it. It does reminds me of green tea kitkat after taste. I do love it, however I would ask for less sugar if possible next time. It is not overly sweet like Starbucks, but I ain’t a sweet-tooth person.

Well this sums up my first post here and omg. I am suppose to blog other stuffs here before this. My bad.

Hehe. šŸ˜‰

The Tasty Table

20120713-162140.jpg

The Tasty Table is a small eatery tucked away in a corner of Mckenzie Rd in Little India. Sandwiched between a Thai restaurant and Pizzeria it is easy to miss, but you probably wouldn’t regret ever discovering it.

Ran by 3 Danish ladies, the food served is predominately danish/european style. The ingredients are fresh and and flavours are light. Even heavy food like their Steak & Shiraz pie is well seasoned and does not leave your mouth dry and thristy like some pies do.

The only draw back of the place is its limited sitting. Where you can either choose to sit outside by the road or the bar seats indoors.

They do a variety of takeaways though. Not only items on the menu but home cooked meals that are frozen for you to buy back to the office or home when you are feeling hungry.

All in all The Tasty Table is a good find and a highlight for the lunch goers in the area

Opps!

Realise that I have been nelegecting the blog for 2 weeks. Partly due to be being a lazy ass as well as me having a short attention span and getting distracted by fanfictions.

Anyway…Previously I wanted to blog about the bloodtype diet, because on an night out with my fellow fishies, we came across a shop that sold vitamin supplements according to your bloodtype. So I did some googling about the blood type diet (although my mother actually bought the book “Eat right 4 your type”). Well..I discovered that I actually eat a number of stuff that is not very suitable for my bloodtype (if you are interested it is O), and I feel fine.Ā Besides a lot of the material are based on western culture, and very hard to apply to an Asian setting (seriously?! It will be very hard for me to not eat grains..rice is at least in 1 meal a day).

So I guess overall I still think that a balance diet and execrising is the key to losing weight.Ā Even if you are not, it is still the key of maintain good health.Ā

Robert aka Mr. Grassjelly and I had an epic conversation about my colleague called RH. RH creates issues that our client has with our system and assigns to us. And at the rate he is assigning to us, we all got a bit fed up. Last week, Mr. Grassjelly suggested that we should fire RH because he is the source of all issues. And this is the continued conversation …

(Btw. it’s just before lunch)

Had a drink with salt&vineyard on Friday evening atĀ teadotĀ at Nex. Despite living so close, it was my first time there! I hadĀ LavenderĀ and Earl Grey ice tea with fluffy blueberry pancakes while salt&vineyard had Matcha Gravity and we shared aĀ citrusĀ cheesecake.

The drinks are pretty good and sweet enough for me. (haha I have a sweet tooth actually.) I actually had the combination of Earl Grey andĀ LavenderĀ before in Starbucks Japan but that was a latte. Teadot’s blend is actually much more refreshing and has this cool after taste which is perfect for Singapore’s weather. However, my tongue started becoming a bit numb. I wasn’t too sure if it was the drink or because it was too cold.

S&V’s Matcha Gravity actually reminded me of a drink that I had in Uji, Kyoto, Japan. With that, it means that their green tea had a certain standard and quality. After all, Uji is known for their matcha.

The pancakes, we suspect, was from one of those pre-made packets and warmed up when served. But not that it is bad. In fact, the pancakes were really fluffy and yummy! Makes me want to know what brand did they buy. :X Not to mention it smelled amazing too. And a plus to the fact they served a brand of butter that both of us loved. :X

The cake stole the show. It was soft and fluffy and very very refreshing. It was a surprise to me when I first tasted it. I was expecting an “omg cheese!” reaction when I ate it. But it turned out to be not very cheesy at all. It is soft and fluffy and reminded me of those Japanese cheesecake. I think it should have went very well with S&V’s Matcha Gravity.

I think, we found a new place to hang around. šŸ™‚ And also next time, we are going to have the warm drinks so that we can get a polar bear tea art in our cuppa.
