Caffebene Singapore ( A Popular Korean Café)

ABBEY: We visited CaffeBene at VivoCity for light snack. But come to their store, I noticed that they are serving an All Day Dining Menu which consist of pasta, bento, salad, wraps, and toasts. 

I tried their Soy Chicken Bento for $10.90 an order. The chicken comes with a cup of brown rice and broccoli. The vegetable is crisp and not overcooked. The chicken went well with the rice. Not too sweet or salty. But I hope they put more serving on the plate :)

We haven't tried the bingsu as we know we're not able to finish it when we saw the cup.

WILL: Abbey and I decided to go to iLight, but the problem is it is too early. So we decided to drop by at VivoCity for some snacks. 

We supposedly going for hamburgers but I remembered that there is a Korean Cafe that we haven't tried. Just in front of FOX kids, this Caffebene located. 

I am astonished with their price but still go though and reasoning that maybe..maybe there is blast of flavour that will happen later. 

I ordered Japchae for $5.90. I am expecting that the serving is small.. but hey!!! Not that too small! The taste is bland. It seems that there is no pepper, sesame seed oil or even a salt was added. Gosh! All I can do is shake my head in disappointment. Luckily, the Caramel Goguma saved my day. 

No second chance for this.

Big Fish Small Fish @ Punggol Promenade Riverside Walk

ABBEY: My wife was away from a couple of days so when she returned, I admit that I really missed her. So to make up for lost time, we spent a dinner date at Big Fish, Small Fish (10 Tebing Lane ; Riviera LRT nearest). 

It is a restaurant built in a cargo container. It got alfresco dining and 3-4 tables indoors. Be there early or wait for 30-45 minutes to have your meal ready. That's what happened to us. Don't fret though, you can enjoy the the nature within the Punggol Promenade Riverside Walk and occasional "airshow" of the flying machines from Selatar. 

I got Salmon, one of their mains, for 12.9SGD. I can tell you that its worth the wait. The batter is crispy but the salmon is moist and delicious. It comes with a serving of thinly-sliced potato chips. Dip the chips into salted egg, then you have an Irvin chips-killer :) They also have mayo, chili sauce and cheese. 

Clean as you go for other customers. I hope they can serve faster so they can cater more customers.

WILL: After my very short visit to my Mom, Abbey missed me so much that he asked me out for a dinner date.. instantly. 

Few bus stops from our home, we went to Punggol Promenade Riverside Park to checkout the "container" restaurants. The name of the diner is Big Fish, Small Fish. 

I ordered fried dory which comes with a freshly cut potato chips. We waited for almost an hour and my belly starts crumbling. Yup! It is 45minute wait. 

Is it a hype? For me, it is not a hype! The dory taste explicitly delicious with their cheese dip and the potato chips are perfect with their "unlimited" salted egg dip. Delicious! 

Another Abbey's to dine list was ticked off! Totally recommended! We will come back for sure :)

Javier's Rotisserie & Salad Bar - Suntec City

ABBEY: This is new concept of dining we went into at Javier’s Rotisserie & Salad Bar located at Suntec City Mall (B1-128/129). We were warmly welcomed and assisted by Andrew. Choose one of the main entries and you can have all you want in their salad bar. 

Don't be fooled by the size of their plate. Fill it up and you'll get full. Their salad bar has lettuce, tomatoes, chops of corn on cobs, potato wedges, nachos, mac and cheese and many more. For 2.80SGD you can have free flow of drinks. Please make coffee and sodas be both included in a single payment. 

I got a quarter of a chicken for 12.90SGD. But it seems like half as I had difficulty finishing it due to the side dishes which almost become the main meal :) The place has a touch of almost green/yellow-green and white colors. They also have baked rice, lasagna, roast beef and poached salmon.

WILL: Abbey went to our office and I am craving for something a food that I do not know! Haha! So we headed to Suntec City Mall. If you are not aware, Suntec is a food haven from basement to its 3rd floor. 

We found out Javier's. A newly open diner located at Fountain of Wealth area. 

We were delighted to know that there will be a free plate of salad (self-service) for every order of roasted chicken/beef, bbq ribs or sausage. Great idea! 

I fell in love to their salad bar which includes baked mac and fried onion rings. Oh! Beets is there to allure my tastebuds! 

This is value for money! Do you know that I went back in this diner the day after? Haha! Friday, I ordered their huge pork sausage and Saturday I went for their ribs. Yum, yum, yum!

Drop by and indulge your cravings on food at Javier's.
