Bakerz@Work – Macpherson, Singapore


I discovered this place recently near where I work and I believe it commenced business not too long ago. Located just below Citimac Industrial Complex, opposite the huge Cross of Trinity Church, this bakery cafe shop is quite a saviour for me especially when I need my fix of caffeine at the end of a busy day. This place has not just gourmet coffees but also crafted breads and cakes for customers. On top of that, they have a good range of baking equipment for sale in their little shop. Further in, there is a room for baking workshops that … Continue reading Bakerz@Work – Macpherson, Singapore

Chiang Mai To Pai – What We Ate Along The Way


Continue from the previous post http://wp.me/pCcuC-KZ: So we left Chiang Mai and headed towards Pai, which is a mountainous village 3.5 hours north of CM. You know, it’s terribly hard to write about places when you’re on the roads. So I can only lump them together and let the pictures tell the story. Below are pics that we ate and what the locals eat.

Sun Dance – Xiamen, Guangdong, China


This last entry wraps up my write ups for Xiamen good foods. Too much to eat, too small stomach! Will definitely be back! Anyways, came to know about this place as it’s much talked about in Xiamen. So I decided to check this place out for lunch before I head back. Went in the place, pretty empty on a weekend lunch, found a table near the door as I had my luggage with me. And boy did I regret that. It was warm near the door and the air-condition was not strong enough during summer. Nevertheless I placed my orders … Continue reading Sun Dance – Xiamen, Guangdong, China

Cottage Cafe @ The Berry Farm – Margaret River, Western Australia


Was here in 1995 and 2008 and this time I finally am writing about this place. Reason because I haven’t started this blog back then. ;P. This place changed a lot since and a lot more well laid out and more spacious. Few things didn’t change though; that is the freshness of the food and the company of the birds. 🙂 This is a must-go location for a nice brunch and buying back in house made relishes, jams, ciders, vinegars, fruit ports, friut wines, etc., for family and friends! Rating: 5/5. Taste: Taste of nature. And the sauces and relishes … Continue reading Cottage Cafe @ The Berry Farm – Margaret River, Western Australia

MQ Coffee Slayer Lab – Shanghai, China


After reaching Shanghai in the afternoon today, I rushed to check out this cafe which has a roasting factory, 2 cafe outlets and a training center for aspiring baristas. I found them online and know that they roast their own beans. I took the cab and headed to their training center and realized they don’t serve coffees there after I made a call to them. Then I headed to their outlet at fengxian lu which is the only outlet that opens on weekends. The walk under the 39 deg celsius sun is no joke even though it’s like only 3 … Continue reading MQ Coffee Slayer Lab – Shanghai, China

Riverside Roadhouse – Bannister, Western Australia


Whenever I drive down to Albany from Perth, I would stop by this place for their homemade burgers and soups. They have loads of pies and sausage rolls too. This petrol kiosk basically is a place for people commuting along the Albany Highway to take a break and refill their tanks and stomachs. This trip, I stopped here again to have my favourite burger and to pay my visit to Andy and Robbo as well. Rating: 4/5. Taste: Burgers are awesome. Homemade soups are awesome too! Latte is a let down though. Portion: Burger is big. It fills me up. … Continue reading Riverside Roadhouse – Bannister, Western Australia

Jean Pierre Sancho Cafe – Perth City, Australia


Was here on my second day in Perth after my grueling first day at the coffee school. It was a Sunday so many places were closed. I spotted this place while driving and all really by chance. So I parked the rented car on the side of the road and went into the cafe to place my order. To my surprise, this cafe has many awards for their bakery and also some business of the year for 2012. Rating: 4/5. Taste: Pretty good but could be better if they can heat up for us. The raisin and croissant were good! … Continue reading Jean Pierre Sancho Cafe – Perth City, Australia
