So the sis and I had our afternoon tea the other day at TWG Tea Garden at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. We have been meaning to visit TWG for a long time cause of its pretty set up and its endless tea list. There are two TWG Tea Salons at Marina Bay Sands itself, and both of  them always look packed, especially during weekends. We were lucky to get our seats at TWG Tea Garden when it was tea time but the seating were quite humid there, we can't fully enjoy our hot tea.. Anyways, pictures of the pretty tea time:

We ordered the 1837 Tea Set (SGD 19.00) which include a pot of tea from their tea list and a choice of two scones/muffins/1 patisserie from their trolley. I chose two scones, and I also tried two flavor of their macarons (SGD 2.00 each). The sis ordered Choco Fudge from their dessert menu, which was perfect consider how hot the place is. Love their tea, forgot tea name that we ordered, something with "night in Paris"..=p Though we should have ordered The Grand Wedding Tea, heard it was the most popular from the Tea List..Their tea-infused macarons are not too sweet, which are perfect for my taste bud. Overall a charming tea experience and would be back to try Grand Wedding Tea!! =`)

Ranch 57

CJ and I went to have dinner at Ranch 57, Plaza Medan Fair, Medan, Indonesia, the other day when I was in my hometown. The place is kinda nice with its own distinct concept, and the waiter kept telling us that Ranch 57 is under the same management as Lekker. I haven't been to Lekker yet, but heard that it's quite popular in Medan.

Love the place's concept..=`)

Nasi Goreng Balado was nice, but I found it too spicy for me. I love spicy food but I just can't handle them well nowadays I don't know why.. CJ's Chicken Fiesta was slightly burned, but was good flavor wise.Food are reasonably priced, however I found that their signature beverages are a tad too steep in price. Heard that they serve good coffee, so coffee lovers, you might want to give this a try..=`)

Tjong Koffie

So I visited Binjai, a small town outside Medan last month. CJ told me there's this pretty cafe just a stone throw away from his cousin's house. It's Tjong Koffie Coffee & Resto at Jl. Pattimura No. 46S, Binjai, North Sumatra, Indonesia. The interior of the cafe is indeed pretty. As I was quite full, I ordered a side dish while CJ was having his main..

Habitat Coffee

So we love to hang out at cafe and we have always passed by this Habitat Coffee at 223 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore, and notice its clean, all white design. We went there on a Saturday, so it was pretty packed. We were seated at slightly "upstairs" side of the cafe where the lights are pretty dimmed. Though it was crowded at the cafe, but the ambiance was pretty nice.

Dim Sum at Crystal Jade Kitchen

Whether I'm in Medan or Singapore, Dim Sum feast can always literally "touch my heart".. Because of the sis's craving for Dim Sum, we had ours at Crystal Jade Kitchen at NEX, Serangoon Central, Singapore. Crystal Jade can never do wrong when it comes to Chinese Cuisine. There was a long queue when we visited, but we didn't have to wait too long before we were seated.

Medan Town

To all Medanese in Singapore..rejoice!! You can now have your Medan food fix at Medan Town, 253 Tanjong Katong Rd, Singapore, when you are feeling home sick.. I chance upon Medan Town's ad in Cleo Magazine, and we went there when the sis was craving hometown food.. Oh who am I kidding, we crave for Medan's food ALL THE TIME!! =p

We were stunned when we were at Tanjong Katong Rd.. The whole place basically is a food street now!! There are a lot of chic and nicely decorated food places along the road, and some are really popular names like Punggol Nasi Lemak, Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh and Eng's Noodles House..
So Medan Town was kinda easy to spot when you are in Tj. Katong..=`)

Menu.. Basically all of Medan's favorites!! Yayy!! =`))

We love all the food!! Of course we can't compare it with Medan's popular names, but the food are all pretty decent and we did have our hometown craving satisfied..=`))
Our favorite would be the Nasi Rendang Ayam and Soto Udang. The Nasi Rendang Ayam was spicy and flavorful we can't wait to go back!! The Soto Udang came with generous amount of shrimp and really paired well with rice. So Medanese, if you long for hometown food, you know where to find them..=`))
