Full Day Out: Carnivore Appetite, Lady M & Cedele


This was probably the first weekend in a long time that I managed to spend the whole day out without having to think about work. I first went to Takashimaya to do some shopping, then Marina Square for lunch and movie, and lastly Great World City for dinner. It felt really good not having to do work on a weekend.

After Takashimaya, we went to Carnivore Appetite for a buffet lunch. The concept is similar to the actual Carnivore, except this was a definitely more affordable one at $24.90++, but the quality was also reflected in the price difference.


This is interesting because I expected to pay before entering (like Seoul Garden) as there was a cashier at the entrance and it was a fixed price meal, but it was not the case.

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse


I have been putting this post off for almost a month because I did not have a very good experience at the restaurant. It was my first and only time being disappointed at a mid to high-end steakhouse. And it shows how much it fell short of that we did not even stay for dessert.



It was meant to be a birthday celebration for me by my family. I was actually looking forward to the dining experience there because Wooloomooloo Steakhouse was fully booked for Restaurant Week even before it was opened to the public, which I took to be an indicator that the food was exceptional.

Curbside Cafe & Wine Bar


It seems like I have been a regular visitor to Biopolis these few weeks. Curbside Cafe & Wine Bar is another new find at the Buona Vista area. It is hidden in one of the newer sections of Biopolis and there is still construction ongoing. Being not very adept at finding my way, I had to use Google Maps for directions.


Once you are able to find the correct building, Nucleos, it is not very difficult to locate the cafe as it is one of the few places that are brightly lit.

The Lawn Cafe


I have returned to The Lawn Cafe, not once, but twice since my first visit. It has quickly become a huge hit with my family due to its proximity, affordability and healthy eating factor. I know that when we go there for lunch or dinner, my mum has no need to nag at us about fulfilling our daily intake of fruits and vegetables.

So here are some of things we have tried…

Pepper Steakhouse & Bistro



This post is late in coming! My good friends and I had a meal at one of my favourite steakhouses, Pepper Steakhouse & Bistro, some time back in April. Pepper falls comfortably within the medium price range for steaks and it also has a variety of cuts to choose from.


We tried their set dinner which costs only $30++ (not sure if it is still available this month)! You have to ask for their set dinner menu, which is featured at the front of the restaurant and is slightly different from the American Express one.

Open Door Policy


Before I start on my meal at Open Door Policy, I would like to explain how we got there. 


Our initial plan was to eat at Forty Hands, which is just across the road from the restaurant. However, they stopped serving dinner a month ago (though they still have not updated their menu), as they are concentrating on their brunch business. One of the staff told us that more updated information can be found on their Facebook page.

 She then suggested for us to try Open Door Policy, which I have been putting off for a while due to the mixed reviews I have heard. It was still early then and we managed to secure a seat without any reservation.
