Ivy's Travel: Singapore Food Diary

Singapore has always been one of our favorite for short trip. No matter how many times we've been there, personally Hubs and I never bored with the city. Our trip to Spore mostly unplanned so I always have these list of restaurant or cafe to try saved in my mobile. :) Just like our last trip to the city last month, super impromptu and super short. So, instead of reviewing the places we tried one by one, I make it in one post as we didn't try much in each restaurants. Well, happy reading then!

Po Lim Cha Chaan Teng

It's funny how I am so in love with Hong Kong. The people are rude, and it's not really the prettiest city on earth, but there's just something about Hong Kong that captured my heart since I was a kid until now, and pretty sure, forever. I wouldn't say it's my favorite city in the world, but it's definitely one within Asia. So when I found out about Po Lim Cha Chaan Teng, I was so excited. The images of sweet crispy bun and thin crisp noodle popped up just like that and I hope so much that the place will somehow cure my never ends missing Hong Kong blues.

Woodpecker Coffee Jakarta

The minimalist touch got me hooked within a heart beat. I love how the place is clean and sleek with homey feel. Personally, being a reserved person, I always enjoy a quiet place rather than those hipster crowded spot. That is also one of the reason of why I feel the need to visit a new place at early stage, to have that privilege of sitting wherever I want, for as long as it takes, and as silent as it can be.

MAMACITA The Wine Kitchen

There are always these places that you just aren't really up to try, probably because of the location, the food or the simple but important fact that their marketing just not great enough on promoting the restaurant itself. For me personally, one of the reasons of why I was not that eager to try Mamacita until several weeks ago is more on their location. The place isn't located in an ideal spot as it is inside the Crystal Lagoon at lower ground of Senayan City. Not the area that mostly people will pass by. The quiet surroundings are excellent though for people who wanted a more intimate meals.

The Royal Stag Bistro Bandung

If you are into British culture, The Royal Stag Bistro in Bandung would impress you. It's located hidden from the main street but once you turn into the alley, you will spot the place immediately. It's a big house turn into a classy restaurant. I absolutely adore the whole black and white color.From outside, it looks like a big classic ranch.
