So in my utterly mundane life of eat, sleep, work, repeat, I’ve come to realise that I do appreciate a nice chillax breakfast outing. Polished wooden tables, bright natural sunlight streaming through the windows, this is exactly what Clinton Street Baking Co. & Restaurant is. Continue reading
Months ago, I had briefly mentioned about my failed attempt to visit the Fabulous Baker Boy. Didn’t leave me with good first impressions, but not that bad that I struck it off my “to visit” list altogether. It took a while, but finally the opportunity came for me to visit the cafe for a meal. This time, I took care to make a booking.
To celebrate my birthday, I requested to check out Janice Wong’s newly opened restaurant at the National Museum. E and J kindly acquiesced. We visited the place on a Saturday evening.
