KUVO @ Somerset/Orchard – Lavish Dining Experience

KUVO Singapore

KUVO Singapore

My friend and I got to visit KUVO Singapore to try out their new Seafood Pot, Seafood Pot SocialLite. Situated along the streets of Orchard Road, KUVO is a lifestyle dining concept by TCC. the restaurant offers not only dining but bar, vine lounge and even a gift shop!

Truffle Fries

Truffle Fries

We started it with their classic Truffle Fries. My friend felt that the scent of the truffle was just right, yet I feel that it certainly can be stronger!

Melon Mangosteen Fruit Tea

Melon Mangosteen Fruit Tea

I was recommended to their out their Fruit Tea and indeed, it was very pleasant! I ordered Melon Mangosteen Fruit Tea. Though it sounds exotic, it was sweet-smelling and inviting. I really love it! You got to try it out!

Bar

Seafood PotSocialLite

Seafood Pot SocialLite

The showstopper for this meal was KUVO’s new Seafood Pot, Seafood Pot SocialLite. It’s a sharing pot that was meant for 2 to 3 pax. You get to choose 4 different types of sauce base, White Wine Garlic Chilli, Bonito Broth, Spicy Chorizo Tomato, or Brandy Beurre Blanc.

We chose the Brandy Beurre Blanc sauce for our base. It was creamy and delightful! The aroma of the Brandy was certainly strong enough, but not too overpowering that will make you feel nausea. 

Make sure to add-on their in-house artisan bread to go with the sauce! It will be so satisfying!

Vine Lounge

Vine Lounge

KUVO’s Vine Lounge looks classy and sophisticated, isn’t?

Belacan Crispy Wings with Sambal Belacan Dip

Belacan Crispy Wings with Sambal Belacan Dip

We ended it off with their Belacan Crispy Wings with Sambal
Belacan Dip. If you are a spicy lover, you got to give it a try! The Sambal dipping sauce will sure to make your mouth on fire!

Receive a bottle of White Wine or Moscato with any Pot SocialLite purchased! Limited daily, while stock lasts.

The Seafood Pot SocialLite will be available until the end of January 2017, subject to changes.

All in all, it was definitely a lavish experience. The ambiance was very elegant and posh. I enjoyed my time there and it’s certainly is a place to go if you are looking to celebrate a very special occasion, or trying to find a soothing place to catch up with someone.

Cha Thai @ Telok Ayer

Pad Thai Noodle

Pad Thai Noodle

Stunning and jaw-dropping Pad Thai Noodle from Cha Thai. Situated in the street of Telok Ayer, this Thai Food restaurant is worth taking a look.

I love their Pad Thai Noodle. Initially, I thought that Pad Thai Noodle should have a strong wok smell. The smell and aroma can be produced with very high heat and a good well-seasoned cast iron wok.  Yet, I was told that original Pad Thai Noodle should not have it.

How do I know? The original creator of Pad Thai Noodle is actually by Chai Thai owner’s ancestor. She is the 5th generation of the family! So, an authentic Pad Thai Noodle should have a sweet fragrance, accompanied by sourish unripened mango and a squeeze of zesty lime.

Drinks

Drinks

Of course, when you are in Thai Resturant, you expect a wide range of selection of Thai drinks, right? You will be spoiled by what they can offer you. I really liked their Thai Green Tea, it was strong and creamy!

Prawn Cakes

Prawn Cakes

Crispy Prawn Cakes to be paired with rice. It was juicy and delightful. But, I do feel that they can be heavier on their seasoning. Yet, I still enjoyed much, especially with the sweet plum sauce!

Papaya Salad

Papaya Salad

The usual Thai Papaya Salad. I know you can’t see, but it was served with Salted Duck Eggs. I don’t recall having Papaya Salad with salted eggs, so this was unique for me! The salad dressing was zingy and refreshing, while the salted eggs give extra depth of flavor to this dish. Definitely should try if you are a sucker for Papaya Salad!

Tom Yum Soup

Tom Yum Soup

Spicy Tom Yum Soup with Noodles and Seafood. Yum! It was so spicy, even I was taken aback. However, the soup was dead additive! I simply just loved it! Strong flavor and very spicy, must try!

Cha Thai

Cha Thai

I think it is worth trying out if you are around the area. Maybe a casual weekday dinner after work with a small group of friends would be great! I love spicy food and this is a place I would really consider when I’m feelin’ for it!

Make sure to try out their Toasted Bread with Milk Tea/Kaya Sauce too! I heard it was quite popular there.

Dallas Restaurant & Bar @ Suntec City Sky Garden

Dallas Restaurant & Bar

Dallas Restaurant & Bar

Suntec has been offering a wide variety of restaurants and Dallas is one of it you should totally check it out. Dallas is a good place to hangout as the bar/bistro concept restaurant offer casual dining ambiance for your after-work drinks and a glorious city view.

Pineapple Punch and Cherry Peach Cooler

Pineapple Punch and Cherry Peach Cooler

Refreshing mocktails before dinner starts. Didn’t want to take alcohol as it was a weekday.

Snapper Fish Tacos

Snapper Fish Tacos

For starters, I got to try out Snapper Fish Tacos. The fish fillets were lightly battered fried till crispy golden brown. Paired with lovely cheesy nacho cheese, pineapple chutney and a finishing of lime juice. It was heavenly amazing. I love it!

BBQ Chicken Parm

BBQ Chicken Parm

Next, I got to try out BBQ Chicken Parm. Pan-fried chicken breast, wrapped with grilled bacon and caramelized onions, and topped with a generous amount of melted mozzarella cheese. 

BBQ Barramundi

BBQ Barramundi

This got to be my favorite main dish, BBQ Barramundi. Crispy skin, yet tenderly soft meat, served with Garlic Mayonnaise and a finishing squeeze of lemon juice. It’s a great choice, yum!

Meat Platter

Meat Platter

When you are in Dallas, you should totally try our their Meat Platter when dining with your friends. Though this Meat Platter is for 2, I find that it is more suitable for 4 people. The Meat Platter consists of Braised Pork Ribs, Australian Lamb, Prime Rib, and Roasted Chicken. It comes with Mint Jelly, Mushroom Sauce, and Black Pepper Sauce. The Mint Jelly goes delightfully with the Lamb Cutlets, while the other sauces should be paired with the Roasted Chicken.

Keylime Pie

Keylime Pie

If you love sourish dessert, this is for you. I highly recommend you to get a slice of Keylime Pie to share at the end of your meal here in Dallas as it was very zesty and sharp.

Warm Chocolate Brownie

Warm Chocolate Brownie

THIS IS THE BEST BROWNIE I EVER HAD! TRUST ME! It was so rich and indulgent, even I was embarrassed with my own brownie recipes. I was told that all their desserts were made in-house, I wonder why they did not open a brownie shop because this brownie really deserves some recognition.

Apple Pie

Apple Pie

Lastly, I also got to try their Apple Pie. I do like the Cinnamon Apple filling. Yet, the crust was a little too soft and lacks flavor.

Jack’s Cola Cafe @ Paya Lebar Square

My trip to Jack Cola Cafe @ Paya Lebar Square was pleasant. They offer delicious comfort breakfast sets that are very reasonably priced, yet does not skimp on the quality and quantity of the ingredients.

Distressed Cheesy Ham Toasty consist of classic Ham  and pan fried Eggs sandwiched between golden brown French Toast. The French Toast was lightly crisp on the outside but soft on the inside. This cheese and ham toast combination will sure not to go wrong if you don’t know what to go for.

Truffle Fries

Truffle Fries

Thick style French Fries drizzled with Truffle Oil and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan Cheese. You got to order this when you are in Jack Cola Cafe as it’s a bargain! This is one of the cheapest you can get in Singapore.

Popcorn Chicken

Popcorn Chicken

My personal favorite is Jack Cola’s Cafe Popcorn Chicken. Bite-sized Chicken Breast Meat coated with well-seasoned batter, deep-fried till golden brown. The end result is just wonderfully crispy. Yum!

Eggs Ben & Smokey Sam

Eggs Ben & Smokey Sam

Stunning, isn’t?

Perfectly Poached Eggs served with Smoked Salmon and French Toast. The ultimate comfort food! You can actually see that the chef actually used a blowtorch just before serving it! You get the wonderful aroma from the smokey charred surface. So good!

Mango Cake

Mango Cake

I got to try some of their cakes and this was the one that caught my attention. Not only looks exotic, it has very interesting texture too! On the outer layer, the cake has the sponge-like texture, yet the crust feels a little rubbery. On the inside, it’s filled with delicious mango mousse and sauce. It totally blew my mind, I love it!

Strawberry & Chocolate Classic Milkshakes

Strawberry & Chocolate Classic Milkshakes

They also have really sweet Milkshakes for sweet-lovers. It’s over the top yet reasonably priced!

Jack's Cola Cafe

If you are looking for a hipster yet affordable cafe, this is a great place you should consider. I really enjoy the woody environment. It feels like having a meal in a country-side. Very homey, very cozy.
