Fart Tartz Now Has An Outlet at Chinatown!

I am so happy that Fart Tartz has expanded and now has an outlet which is more centralised! The cafe’s flagship outlet is at Singapore Expo, which is too far east of Singapore for most of us. Now, people will be delighted to know that we do not have to travel all the way to the end of the East-West Line because there is an outlet at South Bridge Road!

It was really hot, so we started off with two types of refreshing Icy-Blend in large size. Fresh Watermelon Freeze and Lychee Lemongrass Freeze ($16.90 each). The serving size is good for three to four. I preferred the more conventional watermelon ice blended, but I must admit the lemongrass one was something special. It tasted a bit of lemon and ginger, but with bits of lychee.

Initially when I saw the words “Bird Nest Bruschetta”, I was thinking along the lines of the Chinese delicacy. However, this appetiser comprises of six crunch yam nests, topped with herbs, tomatoes, garlic, onions, olive oil and shrimps. Really worth the $9.90!

Baguette Balls ($9.50). Six miniature baguette balls filled with creamy minced chicken and mushrooms, topped with melted cheese. To be honest, I could not really taste any chicken, it was more like a thickened cream of mushroom soup.

Eggs & Berries at Jurong Point (Media Tasting)

Untitled

While Eggs & Berries is not exactly a new restaurant in Singapore, I had never made a trip there prior to this because the reviews from my foodie friends were not very positive. However, I received an invite, so I thought ‘why not?’.

We were there to try ‘The Heavenly Four’ buns–Smoked Paprika & Beetroot (pink), Turmeric Curry (yellow), Spinach Pesto (green) and Charcoal Squid Ink (black). The colour of the buns are natural and take on the colour of the individual flavour.

The interior is brightly lit and filled with colourful chairs. In fact, the lights were so blazing that my pictures were mostly blown-out.

I ordered the Green Mountain Bee ($6.50) while waiting for the others to arrive. This avocado, bee pollen and vanilla smoothie came highly recommended. What was interesting was that there was no accompaniment of gula melaka (which is quite common in Singapore), so all you can taste is the natural creaminess and sweetness of the avocado.

The burgers were as vibrant as the interior of the restaurant. The chef made the pairing for us, but you can choose to pair one of the buns with one of the four types of patties: beef, lamb, pork or chicken.

Common Man Coffee Roasters & Fat Boy’s

Last Saturday, we made a trip down to Robertson Quay just to try Toby’s Estate, however they were sold out before 1pm! We were told to return at 3pm after the kitchen replenished their stock. Hungry us, we were not willing to wait, hence we headed to another popular hangout, Common Man Coffee Roasters.

Even though it was after lunch, the atmosphere of the place was very lively and every table was filled.

I had the Organic Eggs Benedict($24). I think I took too long to take pictures, so my dish was all mushy. It was an interesting idea to include braised ox cheeks, but it can be quite heavy if you intend to order this for breakfast.

I loved my hot chocolate ($6)!
