My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu

My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu So a little out of the blue, I get a message from my great Chef mate Greg. Remember him from Siglap Khun Mookata days. He then went to CBP for Mikawa #2, the one we usually frequent in Siglap too. And now he has set up on his own. He had some 'spare' Wagyu, just 3-4Kg slabs of Japanese Grade A4. "Did I want some?" said Greg. "I am on my way over now!" said I. This is how My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + ...

Scouser’s 60th Birthday & Leaving Do – ChillaxBBQ

Scouser's 60th Birthday & Leaving Do - ChillaxBBQ Our great mates Kev and Joan have decided on pastures new and at the end of September they, sadly, leave us for Portugal. Nearer to home. Nearer to the kids. We just hope to be seeing them once a year on their trips back to the lands of Asia. Bless them both, as they chose ChillaxBBQ to host their event. An event we were truly honoured to do. This became Scouser's 60th Birthday & Leaving Do - ChillaxBBQ. On the crew were Big Bird and ...

The Botanic @ Raffles City

The Botanic @ Raffles City We finished our little trip to see Amy's Gold Winning Entry for the "Draw My Stamp" competition at the National Library. As we were nearing dinner, but not quite I thought we could wander and have a drink and sit somewhere 1st. So I took us off to Loof, the rooftop bar over from Raffles. A nice little family sit and chat and look at the photos of dinosaurs. Across the road is Chijmes and Raffles City and I was thinking perhaps Carnivores for dinner, post watching the ...

Sandwich Saigon Cafe @ Katong

Sandwich Saigon Cafe @ Katong I wrote about this place years ago. Do you remember? All about how incredible the owner is, and her making her own baguettes every day and her own soy and fish sauces. Clearly it has been years and it was time to re-visit. Wifey and I had the chance to have lunch too as I was working from home this day after the trip to Melbourne for work. Stars aligned and so did the food stars at Sandwich Saigon Cafe @ Katong. Everyone raves about Long Phung down Joo Chiat, as ...

Two ChillaxBBQ’s in Finland Gardens for two different reasons

Two ChillaxBBQ's in Finland Gardens for two different reasons So our new neighbour Mr McCartney has been a busy boy with his family over from the UK and China, and so we spent quite a bit of time over the last week or so pool-side with them. We ended up having one impromptu ChillaxBBQ and one planned ChillaxBBQ, and that is how we ended up with Two ChillaxBBQ's in Finland Gardens for two different reasons for James McCartney and family and friends. First up was caused by a play-date at the ...

Wolaa @ East Coast Road, #workisover-rated dinner with family

Wolaa @ East Coast Road, #workisover-rated dinner with family Yeah, baby another exciting little find. Our good mates the Breens have been here and really liked it. Every time we go past on the bus we see it and think; "Oh yeah we must pop in there one day..." And today was the day. After much badgering from #1 to go we did. He had had his extra Chinese lessons, and we had just been to see The Lion King (pretty good actually). So in need of a feed, we walked up to Wolaa @ East Coast Road, ...

Rakuya @Katong, lunch with wifey #workisover-rated

Rakuya @Katong, lunch with wifey #workisover-rated These opportunities for date lunch with wifey are fast disappearing. Work starts again soon on 29th July, and I am sad. I'll miss our lovely long days together, seeing the kids, and basically just having uninterrupted fun. So this is one of the remaining days for us. We again chose somewhere different to keep the variety barometer a swinging. So today we visit a place we have walked past many times Rakuya @Katong, lunch with wifey #workisove...
