Antipodean Cafe

menu only available on blackboard...

Antipodean is a Kiwi/Australian style of cafe serving the best quality coffee and food. It was shortlisted in the Best for Coffee and Best New Restaurant categories of the Time Out KL Food Awards 2011.

I went there for lunch with Lushia. The restaurant is quite crowded even during weekday.

Let's see what we ordered:

Cappuchino RM 8 , Ice Cappuchino RM 10

Thai Chicken Satay RM 15

Grilled Chicken served with tomatoes, green beans & balsamic vineger RM 18

Antipodean Cafe do served good food & coffee i would say. Both dishes we ordered tasted good but the portion are probably too big for both of us as we can't actually finish all. :p

We heading there for dinner at one of the famous japanese restaurant - Hokkaido Santouka Ramen.Expect some quieng & waiting for Hokkaido Santouka Ramen as the restaurant is quite pack during the weekend!

Let's see what we ordered:

Aburi Tokusen Toroniku (Roasted Premium Pork Cheek) RM 17

This is strongly recommended. The meat was so tender & juicy. Two thumbs up for this one.

Tori Karaage (Fried Chicken) RM 10

The Crispy Fried Chicken was good too. Definately a good one for appetizer.

Hiya Yakko (Japanese Tofu) RM 6

Small Ramen & Fried Rice Set RM 33

I had Small Ramen & Fried Rice Set. It comes with a small bowl of rice, ramen, salad, chawanmushi & tea. A great one to share with your kids! :) Hokkaido Santouka Ramen claimed their soup "The perfect temperature for the perfect soup". Well, the pork broth was very tasty indeed.

Kara-Miso Ramen (Spicy Soybean Paste Flavor) RM 27

Steven had Kara-Miso Ramen. I have not been to Japan before, and not sure the authentic taste for the japanese ramen, but according to Steven, Hokkaido Santouka Ramen is definately a great place to try if you are looking for an authentic Japanese Ramen!

Universal Studio Singapore

I still remember our previous trip to Singapore, we wanted to visit Universal Studio Singapore, but we only get to know we must buy ticket online first in order for us to visit this theme park due to its high demand during weekend/ public holiday! So, this trip, we purchased online in advance, ticket cost around SG $57.80 (age 13-64), SG $42.50 (age 4-12), price quoted after 15% maybank credit card discount. Click here for more info about tickets price.

Where we stay?

If you are looking for a hotel located at the heart of Singapore, Royal Plaza on Scotts is the one you may consider. The hotel was one of the special, 100% smoke-free hotels in Singapore. Just 1 minute walk to the Orchard Road MRT Station, besides, the hotel is also surrounded by the shopping mall such as ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City (Takashimaya). DFS (Duty Free Shop) is just located adjacent to Royal  Plaza on Scotts. Definitely the best location for those shopaholic. :D

Have you try the Garrett Popcorn before? It's available in Malaysia though but this is our very first tried in Singapore. 

We had Macadamia Caramel Crisp, combined with exotic macadamia nuts. Tasted sweet. It's the perfect getaway I would say.
