Austrian, Hungarian and Bohemian (Italy) are the main cuisines on show at this newly opened restaurant at Capitol Piazza. I was extremely excited to try it when I first heard it was happening. Situated at the 2nd floor, you have a clear view of all other eateries around. Its own ambiance was relaxing, but yet oozes sophistication in my opinion.

 <Tomato Soup>

 <Beef Goulash>

At just $17++, the set lunch came with a soup, a choice of mains and beverage. Normally, I wouldn't order tomato soup as some are too watery and while some might be too tangy. This tomato soup was robust, tasty and leaves you for more. The beef goulash, my my my... OMG! When you can just eat this dish with a fork, it is a sign of awesomeness. Full of depth, flavour and slightly spicy, this goulash is to die for. Definitely one of the best I have eaten in Singapore. However, some might find similarities between this and our Asian sambal chilli. And if you are not a fan of any types of onion, even the sweet ones. Beware... this goulash is FULL of them~ Again, this is my first time trying out an Austrian style beef goulash. I'm not sure if it tastes like home, but it tastes darn good. ^^

<High Tea Set for 2>

Haha, Yes! I am back again with my wife. This time for their high tea set. O.o Yup, the waiters gave me the same look as they were exactly the same bunch on day 1. LOL! At just $28++ for 2 pax, You get 2 slices of their signature chocolate stollen, a choice of awesome looking cakes, organic rye sandwiches and pastries. Delicious and totally worth it. It fills you up pretty fast too. My favourite was the horn pastry. It was light, sweet, buttery and flaky~ Nom Nomz! And a high tea wouldn't be complete without choices of coffee and tea. 

Psst, they do serve good cup coffee. I'll be sure to visit Kaiserhaus again with my family to try out their emperor meals and sharing platters!

Bottura, a newly opened Italian concept restaurant at the recently renovated Suntec City. It has been a while since I took time to blog about food. But I think they deserve a shout for their simple, honest but yet delicious food. And yes, they do make their own pasta fresh daily!

 <Crunchy polenta with mushrooms and house-made stracchino cheese>

Tofu tofu? Nah~! They are crispy pan-fried polenta! Who would have thought this plain looking dish could be so flavoursome. The polenta, mushrooms and the cheese goes well with one another. Especially without the cheese, some may find the polenta too dry.


With my recent inking to try whipping out my own carbonara pasta, I decided to take a dive and tried theirs first. It looked good, smelled good and tasted even better. It wasn't overpowering and was well balanced. You could still taste hints of black pepper amidst all the cheesy eggy goodness.


Well, I have to say my favourite tiramisu is still L'Atelier TiramiSu. This probably ranks 3rd or 4th on my list. It's good, don't get me wrong. But I just prefer others. ^^

Head over to Bottura for more Italian goodness!
Oops! did I forgot to mention that the prices are extremely affordable for such quality food.

Two Bakers

Hey guys, I haven't been writing a lot lately as I've been down on my passion on writing about food. However, that doesn't mean that I haven't been trying to fill my food passion constantly. I'm going to write a bit more than usual in this post simply because I felt that the owners were genuine in asking for feedback. So, hopefully I will be of some help here. ^^

Okay, so, Two Bakers is a pretty new cafe in Lavender along Horne Road. You might already know that there are a few other cafes along it such as The Bravery Cafe and Windowsill Pies. This new cafe has quite a modern look to it that reminds me of the cafes I've been in Australia. I went to the cafe with pretty high hopes as the I understand that the owners were trained under the famed school of Le Cordon Bleu in France (Please correct me if I misunderstood). However, like all cafes, there are some hits and misses. On to the food!......

 <Flat White>

Coffee was really good. I would say it is quite full bodied and the ratio of coffee to milk is just right.

<Ham and Cheese Croissant>

This was really disappointing in my opinion. The kind of croissant I like are the ones that is flaky and has many layers of buttery goodness. This however, it felt kind of like a toasted bread. To make it worse, the ham was dry and the cheese cold and un-melted. I would say that they need to try on improving the texture of the croissant and also, to keep even simple dishes' standard consistent.

 <Beef Stew>

This was one of the special items they had on the board beside the counter. One of the owner actually stopped by my table and asked how was it. I couldn't give a really good answer then, but as to why I couldn't? You'll find out at my concluding paragraph later below. This stew had a very unique taste, but it could be that I'm unaccustomed to it. First bite, I was hit by this very strong alcoholic taste which I didn't enjoy. Next, a smoke like sensation engulfed my entire mouth. Personally, I think they might need to cook down the red wine (I know it because the owner told me) in it much more to reduce the alcoholic taste. And I think they should try and reduce the amount of smokiness in the dish so that the wonderful ingredients in the stew do not end up overpowering one another. On the bright side, the beef were cooked to perfection and extremely tender. Last but not least, the ciabatta bread on the side tasty light, chewy and airy. Awesome!

<Key Lime Tart>

This tart was easily the star of my meal. I am not an expert in key limes, but I do know a good tart when I eat one. Lime curd was not overly sour and velvety, It was expertly balanced by the slightly sweet Chantilly cream. The tart itself was buttery, crumbled and easy on the fork. (You know how some tarts are too hard? Or sometimes, they just break apart like dust, making it hard to pick them up) *Thumbs Up!*

As for the atmosphere, most part of the cafe felt very comfy. However, I was a little light headed from my meal as my table was directly under a glass window (I didn't exactly look up). And with the sun shining brightly outside, it sort of amplified the heat onto me. *Sigh* I sweated while I ate. Hahaha~ Anyway, if you are along Horne Road, remember not to give this cafe a miss. You might just find something you love in there. ^^

The Beast

 <Southern Sweet Tea>

Texas's version of ice lemon tea I suppose? It tasted somewhat different with a different texture to what I know. The tea was smooth, felt thick like milk and finishes off slightly minty. It was awesome to be honest. But if you are keen to read more, you can check out "Sweet Tea" from wiki.

 <Pulled Pork Sliders>

Not too shabby. Buns were lightly toasted and in between, laid a bed of smokey pulled pork top with bbq sauce and coleslaw. If you are just hunting for a small bite with a glass of good beer, this might be just your best choice. But for me, it wasn't that memorable.

 <Buffalo Wings>

I would say this is one of the better buffalo wings I've had. They come in 3 different heat, I ordered the mid-range ones. The wings were crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Perfectly cooked. The hot sauce that covered them was tangy and spicy. If you don't mind getting a little messy, I'll strongly recommend this. I'm going to try the spiciest the next time I visit! Haha~

 <Shrimp & Grits>

One of the classic comfort food from Southern USA. Gravy was awesome and savoury, I could almost lap it all up. There were a lot of grits which tasted good. But I would have love to have more or bigger shrimps to accompany the dish. It was almost like Grits with Shrimps rather than Shrimps & Grits.

 <Blackened Pork Collar>

Spices were good and intense. Mash and gravy spot on as well. But I found the pork a tad too dry for my liking. Nevertheless, it is still a decent dish.

 <Catfish Taco>

An excellent dish with no flaws in my opinion. This was my first time having catfish and I had no idea what to expect. But the flesh was so soft, fresh and succulent. The batter was also excellent. Just lightly coating the pieces of fish, enhancing the overall taste. The condiments such as the salad, the salsa, tacos and others also blended well, creating a very balance and satisfying meal.

 <Country Fried Steak>

For those who are unsure, country fried steak is actually quite a staple in the southern part of USA. It is actually a battered beef steak deep fried. As you would suspect, deep frying a steak would cook it well done and the meat might be tough. But the way they do it is to beat the steak thinner so that it cooks faster and stays more tender. Personally, unless you are ultra picky about the way you eat your steak, this dish is still an enjoyable one.

 <Chicken and Waffles>

A portion size of monstrosity! When the dish arrived at our table, we were all shell shocked at the sheer size of the meat. Don't get me wrong, it was good!!! The waffles were decent, But the chicken was awesome. Super super moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Some of you may find the batter a little to thick though. And they could improve the dish more by removing the skin from the chicken before covering it with batter. It was steaming soft under the batter as well~ LOL

<Bourbon Pecan Pie>

Too sweet for me~ It is the 2nd time I hate a pecan pie and both times I found it too sweet. Maybe pecan pies just ain't for me.

Ambience - Good
Food - Great
Cost - $35+
Overall - Must try!
