Don't Miss (Muffet) This!

I've been wanting to post about this cute little shop at Icon Village for a while. It's called Muffet's Room. For those of you who's familiar with nursery rhymes, yes it's the Little Miss Muffet who was startled by a spider while having her bowl of soup (porridge? I've never heard of the story until I Googled it because my nursery rhyme was 三只老虎,三只老虎). So far no creepy crawlies had been spotted on my various visits there but good food!

Their signature Fish & Chips is quite something, as an Australian husband of a friend commented that it's the best fish and chips he's had so far in Singapore! Comes in 100g or 200g of fish, with the options of having your fish battered or breaded. They have daily specials of pastas, chicken escalope, etc. I had a nice chicken stew on my last trip there. The portion is quite huge with a whole drumstick and generous servings of beans and veg in the stew. I like the stew not being too tarty. Served with 3 slices of bread.

They also serve blended fruit drinks, coffee, tea, sandwiches (try the chicken salad sandwich), snacks (fish fingers, chips with melted cheese and spicy chicken wings if they went ahead as planned after they let us sampled the wings last time) and desserts (if they bring back the Belgian waffles, please!).

The shop seats a max of 12 pax (I did say it's a cute little shop!) so go early during lunch. They also deliver within Tanjong Pagar area. Prices for savouries range from $5+ to $11+. No GST or service charge even though their service is super friendly! Now go say hi to Ms Muffet and show your support! Also check out their lovely chalk art! Oh, and I LOVE their homemade tartar sauce!

King Kong Tower

Today CK made a King Kong Tower of two dark chocolate brownies stacked together with caramelised banana chunks dripped with chocolate ganache, served with vanilla ice cream! Damsel is in distress over to eat it or not.

Guo Mei Mei will be interviewed at Caramel around 4pm today! I heard she's releasing a new album soon!


Next, kitchen cabinet!

So we dumped the microwave oven which went on strike yesterday and replaced it with the one from our house. Thank goodness it worked fine albeit a bit old and a bit tiny. We're just glad we don't have to cook using tea light candles and we do enjoy the extra space in our home.


Microwave Oven 1; Caramel 0

Today the microwave oven died on us. No, actually it didn't just die but refused to perform its daily duties. The protest came in the form of light and sound: there were flashing yellow sparks coupled with loud crackling voice that said: "Ima release the Kraken!!" we pulled the plug immediately before Caramel was blown to smithereens. We soon realised we were back in the 1800s without a high frequency heating device.


Very Vegetarian

We've expanded our vegetarian menu! Lalala~~~

Matcha Cake

CK made a scrumptious and yummy Matcha Azuki (green tea & red bean) Cake today. A Cantonese-speaking lady walked into the shop...

OK I'm just joking if you don't get it.
