Chicken Up latest outlet at Centerpoint + Giveaway!

We all know Chicken Up as the place to go for Korean Fried Chicken and Soju, especially their Watermelon Soju at the Tanjong Pagar outlet. But Chicken Up has arrived at Centerpoint too! Now you can visit for your korean food craving fix! 

Together with a few friends, we visited Chicken Up at Centerpoint for some Korean food fix. We had the Ugly Tang, a.k.a Army Stew ($30). Filled with ingredients enough to serve 2, we watch with all eagerness for the soup to boil and the ramen to cook! I LOVE the ramen which soaked up the soup base really well. Also, you can ask the staff to add in more soup for you if it is turning dry. Hehe.

We also had a really instagrammable dish, the Snow Squid Topokki ($39). This portion is huge to serve 2-3 ladies depending on your personal eating habits. Haha. The beautifully fried squid is imported from Korea and it taste really fresh. Perfectly battered squid and the squid comes in rings, so it is easier for you to eat. Do not worry as the staff will provide a table side service to help you with cutting the squid so that it is easier to eat :)

Just a little snack at the side while waiting for the other dishes to arrive, we had the Bulgogi Fries ($18). Served with slices of bulgogi beef and topped with special sauce and mayo, it is a delight to share with friends before you dig in to the main dishes later.

If you wanna have soju and don't wanna get drunk so quickly, try this Grapefruit Sojurita ($20). The sweetness of the grapfruit slushie at the bottom is so delightful that you will forget about the grapefruit soju stuck to it. Pull the bottle of soju up bit by bit to release the soju within to add the alcoholic kick to your drink and slowly enjoy it throughout your meal. No bitter taste at all from this grapefruit soju, SUPER Recommend for ladies!

If you wanna go for something non alcoholic, you can take a look at their wide range of lightbulb drinks menu. From mocktails to smoothies, I'm sure there will be something for everyone.
Here we had: Mango, Strawberry Banana, Blue Lemon, Matcha Latte ($6/each)

Last but not least, it's dessert time to end the meal off on a sweet note, I always believe in this and we had the Watermelon Bingsoo! It is filled with Milk shaved ice, topped with watermelon balls, red bean and a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Cool and refreshing dessert to coll off the heat from the spicy food earlier on.

Banana Tree Cafe

Valentines is near and what a better day to treat yourself or your loved ones something sweet. Cotton Candy Latte or a Flower Pot Dessert sound creative enough? Check out Banana Tree Cafe located in Tanjong Pagar!

The beautiful cozy design of the cafe makes you want to stay in here forever. With a glass panel that allows natural lighting in makes it perfect for food photogaphy or even selfies and wefies! Look at those cute little pots waiting to be filled up and delivered to you.

To cut the heat, we ordered the Green Apple Non-Alcaholic Mojito ($7.50). Super refreshing and not too sweet at all, a very natural sweetness which is really enjoyable.

Highlight of the day - Flower Pot Pudding($6.50) and Iced Som Som Latte ($7.00)

Also something amazing here at Banana Tree Cafe is their Pot Bingsoo ($12.50) which includes a scoop of ice cream and deliciously soft red beans. Would recommend you to share it with a few friends after a dinner, a great dessert to chill out with while engaging in real life conversations rather than looking at our phones.

I would love to visit Banana Tree Cafe again. And they do take reservations with Quandoo! So do make your reservations early! :)

CHEERS with Caffe B and many more on the latest CHEERS App

Cheers! The most common phrase that we hear every time we raise our glass in an joyous occasion with friends over some alcohol. It is such a positive words which makes it a joy to hear. But you know what's better? It is to have 1 for 1 drinks when you're out with friends to raise the happiness bar. We all know the Entertainer App has tons of 1 for 1 dining deals, but did you know about the newest baby - Cheers App ? You'll be glad you landed on my page.

The Cheers App is the alcoholic's version of the Entertainer App. The Cheers app offers tons of 1 for 1 deals like 1 for 1 bottle of house wine, 2 for 2 glasses of cocktails, or 1 for 1 glasses of house beverage. I'm sure there is something for everyone. I was invited for a experience at Caffe B for their wonderful range of cocktails. 

We started with the Yuzu Mojito ($19), which was paired with the Appetizers. The light and refreshing Yuzu taste neutralised the high sodium content of the Italian cold cuts. Yet however, it complimented really well with the scallop Carpaccio to bring out the sweetness of the scallops. Yums!

Caffe B not only does really great cocktails, their mains are worth your visit as well! We had the 2nd cocktail - Ume Gin ($19) paired with a Spagetti Carbonara and also Risotto Singapore. I love the Risotto for it's wonderful flavour, it might be too gelat if you consume it all at once, hence the Ume Gin comes in to cleanse the palete.

Sake Cucumber Cocktail ($18) with Pernod King Prawns. The Fresh and crunchy king prawns were a joy to me. The sake cucumber cocktails was a rather bland cocktail, which was neither too sweet, or too sour, a very mild taste.

My favourite of the night, Berrytini ($16), the sweetest of them all too. When paired with the Wagyu al Porto, Queen Magarita Pizza as well as the I am crazy in Singapore pizza. Yes, that's the exact name of the pizza. With crazy loads of topping on this one, it is the one pizza to try at least once in your life!

Last but not least, a dessert cocktail. The Espresso Martini ($18) uses the... yes.. you've guess it, Kahlua, the coffee flavoured liqueur to bring out the whole composition. And what better dessert to pair this with non other than the Tiramisu. Fun Fact: Caffe B's Tiramisu is crispy yet addictive. What do I mean? Come try it for yourself!

Do note that some photos of the food you see here are in tasting portion, please do not worry. Another great deal is that Caffe B is also on the Entertainer App! Which means you get to get 1 for 1 deals for the delicious food here too! Double Cheers!
