When I found out the cafe in place of My Secret Garden is aptly named Artichoke, I immediately like the intended pun. Having this urgent need to confirm my understanding, I skipped there to make sure that it is not a cafe specialised in cooking artichokes. Indeed, it is not. Located in Scuplture Square amongst NAFA, SDT and YMC, this cafe is named with its location rather than the vegetable in mind.

Dense and cloyingly sweet chocolate cakes are a dime a dozen while elegantly chocolaty ones are rare. I was literally hopping in joy when I saw Mrs Multitasker's Chocolate Velvet Cake Recipe. Go try it if you are jaded by chocolate cakes that are just butter, eggs and chocolate chips crudely put together. Mrs Multitasker's rendition simply smells and tastes so sophisticated.

Pizza, gourmet pizza, healthy gourmet pizza, healthy gourmet pizza from Australia, healthy gourmet pizza from Australia now at Holland Village.
And I thought it was just on a whim I actually accepted Charlie (Orion PR)'s invitation to the soft launch of Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar. On hindsight, I do subconsciously or consciously want to be one of the first to have a taste of the Australian chain located conveniently at my hang-out.

When I found out about Eden Sanctuary's move to China Square Central, I was mildly disturbed. For someone who live and breathe Rochester Park, a healthier alternative to North Border is essential. I really love the space Eden used to occupy and glad that Onaka of Biopolis fame has taken over.

The story goes like this. A British friend of ours visited last week and we just did what we do best aka brought him to all sort of places and engage in our fave activity - EAT! After an ultra-spicy sichuan lunch at Chinatown, Mr Britain commented Singapore must have a rather sad cake scene because no one can stomach a rich chocolate cake after all our yummy hawkerfare! I totally disagreed and brought Mr Britain to Flor and K-Ki to show him there's much cake life after a chocolate cake. The kind of brownie-wannabe-chocolate-cake-made-crudely-by-slapping-on-butter-eggs-chocolate-flour is such a passe in our little cosmopolitan island. People these days are much more sophisticated than to be satisfied with just another chocolate cake.
K-ki's Antoinette, $8
Antoinette according to Mr Britain is like a white chocolate and mango molten lava cake. Mr Britain likes the taste of mango so this ain't exotic to him at all. Me? I always love An. Move over chocolate molten lava cake.

Fangie and I chanced upon Restaurant 88 one evening after our shopping and we just hopped into the restaurant. Helmed by chef-owner Luke Duong, Restaurant 88 dishes out vietnamese cuisine with a modern twist. The decor of this dark, dark restaurant is almost like a pub with green lanterns which I somewhat still unable to comprehend the vietness of it. Thankfully, my gripe about this place simply ends there.
Stuffed Chicken Wings
I like how neat the chicken wings were arranged in a row. The wings may appeared light in colour but they were adequately fried to a comfortable level of crispiness. The juices remained in the meat as well as skin and the vegetable stuffing was refreshing and crunchy. I found the sauce drizzled on the wings a tad too heavy and synthetic in taste. Otherwise, this could jolly well be the best stuff chicken wings I ever have in my life.
