Tokyo Deli Cafe

Its been some time since I last visited Tokyo Deli Cafe (at Raffles City).

I like the bright interiors and its usually not crowded even on weekends.

A delightful way to cool down in the hot Summer weather.

The dark chocolate is too sweet and cheese cake too rich.
Tea would have been a better choice.

Some Japanese magazines for browsing while you sip your drink.

More than Coffee

Whether its the name or exterior, Coffee Stars by Dao looks like a coffee and cakes place.


Some weeks ago, I popped in for a cup of coffee and sandwich.

a very strong cup of coffee

It was a pleasant surprise to discover that they have one full page of vegetarian menu. I made a mental note to come back again for their Thai food.

It was yesterday that I finally met up with a friend there for dinner, a friend that I haven't met up for years!

vegetarian tom yum soup

I find it hard to find clear tom yum soup in Singapore, more so the vegetarian version. It is a must order item when I see it on the menu. And it turned out great, loaded with different kinds of mushrooms. Certainly much better than the red-tom yum, which I always find too oily.

Wanton Pra Thai

I actually ordered this by mistake, thinking that it is wanton skin with the pra thai noodles, so I was a bit disappointed when it came only with the wanton skin. Tasty but its better shared with 3-4 persons as the taste does get monotonous after some time.

A nice pot of lemongrass to round up the dinner

Unfortunately, we were too full for cakes at the end of the meal. So that will be for the next trip.
