Itsara

Itsara

It was a busy work week for both Stan and I, so we thought what better way to reward ourselves than to indulge in a upmarket Thai restaurant. After reading up some rave reviews and visiting its Facebook page, we decided to give Itsara a go. […]

Seafood Char Kway Teow

Seafood Char Kway Teow

I’ve been wanting to try making char kway teow, otherwise known as stir fried flat rice noodles, for quite sometime now. Back then, I’d seen one of my aunts attempted this hawker dish several times but it always ended up in a big sloppy pile. […]

Gusto Food

Gusto Food

It was pouring as Stan and I made our way to Gusto Food last weekend. Thankfully, the weather cleared up when we arrived despite it continued to be chilly. Unsurprisingly, the cafe was packed and there was already a line outside. Perhaps it was due […]

Dry Wonton Noodles Recipe

Dry Wonton Noodles Recipe

Stan and I have been trying out several recipes from the cookbooks that we have bought a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, we often fail to take any pictures of them as we were usually famished by the time we finished cooking. If it were not […]

Valentine’s Day Special: Chocolate Crepe Cake with Nutella and Whipped Peanut Butter

Valentine’s Day Special: Chocolate Crepe Cake with Nutella and Whipped Peanut Butter

Frankly, for some reason Stan and I do not have much recollection of what we did for Valentine’s Day throughout our 3 years of being together. February is the month of several celebrations for us, which include my birthday, Stan’s dad’s birthday, Chinese New Year […]
