Wow, sort of my last day with Compass today what with CNY next week and getting Monday off and Tuesday in lieu. That was that. A sad day actually though. The job was just not what was explained so I start a new life on 3/2. Again, I was supposed to be in the UK this week, but due to the exit, it was of course cancelled. This, in turn, has had me home and able to see the family without the very late night calls – so today was Lunch with Wifey @ NineThirty @ Katong.
OK, Lunch with Wifey @ NineThirty @ Katong was not our usual style as we had the kids with us as they have half-day from school due to CNY. More like Lunch with the Goonies @ NineThirty @ Katong. But, it did give us a chance to explore a fair bit more of the menu due to the extra mouths. There we go, always a positive.
Like I said in my first blog about this place, I really can’t believe how many times we have walked past without coming in. It was never a conscious thing. Maybe we were just confused? Is it chocolate only? Is it a bakery? Are they the same place? Is it a restaurant too? Who knows. But we have been here twice now in a very short period of time. Remember our Virgin visit? Also a Lunch with Wifey haha. A very quick lunch in fact. Over in the blink of an eye. But still so damned good.
“Started in 1998 selling only the All Chocolate cake, Awfully Chocolate has grown from one indie store into a group of shops, cafes and restaurants bearing our love for dark chocolate, both in Singapore and overseas.
The flagship Awfully Chocolate store in Singapore, Ninethirty, offers a contemporary selection of well-loved comfort food and (of course) Awfully Chocolate desserts. Inspired by Awfully Chocolate’s philosophy of fresh bakes made by hand and from scratch, Ninethirty’s dining range also incorporates fresh ingredients and handmade elements with a twist.
Always the best place in Singapore to get that perfect chocolate cake, come get the full experience of what the Awfully Chocolate life is when you dine with us at Ninethirty.”
Could not agree more with what they say. And love the start-up to success story too. Just wonderful. Still though, one thing from me. I WISH they would do the extended menu of Deli and the like not just at weekends and public holidays. Come on NineThirty… I get that for the Brunch menu, but… I suppose though that is a ‘hook’ to get us back again, this time at a weekend!!! Clever buggers!!!
Let’s check out the grub, shall we? A few news ones…
So there you go folks. Lunch with Wifey @ NineThirty @ Katong. The kids were very impressed with what got served up today, as were Wifey and I. This really is a must-try East Coasters. It’s such quality food with really superb staff. So hospitable and caring of all without being over cheesy. It really is great and smack bang in the middle of Katong. Plus, those bloody choco-cocktails are to die for believe me. Just for them, it is worth popping your head in haha. Oh yeah, and that Creme Brulee, OMG. I cannot fault today in any way, it is more fault on us for not having been to here more often. Be proud Lyn Lee, you have built a cracker here. Everyone reading this, get down here. It really is a must-try, just come down and – ENJOY!!!
