My experience at Eighteen Chefs (The Cathay)

Eighteen Chefs has opened another outlet at The Cathay! Whoohooo! If you read my blog, I previously blogged about Eighteen Chefs at Cineleisure . I'm happy to be invited again to try out a new set of food that they will be introducing. Now at The Cathay, you will have another option to dine at with so many f&b choices, you would definitely have a headache deciding where you wanna eat hahaha! The new outlet is located at the basement of The Cathay at Dhouby Ghaut. I have been a loyal "fan" of Eighteen Chefs since they opened their first outlet at East Point (Simei). Used to be my favourite place to chill after school!

Entrance Of Eighteen Chefs 

The food tasting kicked off with a demonstration of teaching us how to make a perfect salad. We then got a chance to make our very own salad (provided if we follow the correct instructions). There was a mini-competition because we were separated into 2 groups! The winning team that makes the best salad gets a small token! I was paired up with Cheryl and Xue Ling. 

Basically it's only 3 simple steps lah: 

Step 1:
Picking the vegetables & ingredients 

Step 2: 
Seasoning the salad 

Step 3:
Tossing the salad 

It does not seem as easy as it looks. You will also need to have the "chef feel" in order to make the perfect salad! I was kinda skeptical because I do not know how much seasoning I'm supposed to add. You know sometimes if you add to little, then the salad will have no taste, or if you add to much then the flavour is too strong. So I guess you need to have the "instinct"!! 

#team2 for the win! 

*drum rolls* TAHHHDAHHH!! Salad ready to be served! 

Chef Benny did the honor of tasting our salad! It's not some usual salad you know but the amount of ingredients they used are very generous. One of the premium ingredients are pine nuts which are very expensive in the market but extremely delicious and has it's health benefits because it's high in it's nutrition and also rich in vitamin A that helps you to boost your strength for your bones.

Vegetarian Aglio Olio

Price: $5.80

For the health conscious and vegetarian, Eighteen Chefs do offer vegetarian pasta!! Filled with hearty amounts of broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower and seasoned with Aglio Olio seasoning. For a price of $5.80, I feel that it is definitely value for money! The pasta was delicious and the taste of it was slightly peppery and it was full of it's flavour. Something that I would recommend you guys to try out! Remember to add the *cheese powder*!!

Dory With Lemon Caper Sauce

Price: $12.80

Craving for something creamy?! Well this has got to be one of your choice! The slice of dory fish is topped with fragrant lemon sauce which enhanced the entire taste of it. It was one of my favorite dishes and I would be coming back for more. Despite, small in portion the fish tasted fresh and succulent, it  wasn't disappointing as I was highly enticed with the dish. It's something that I would be willing to spend on. The dory fish is also accompanied with generous amount of vegetables.

Eighteen Beef Burger 

Price: $13.80

Next up, we have the tempting Eighteen Chefs Burger which is also one of their signature dishes. It was beef burger filled with tomatoes, potato wedges and salad! I have to praise this dish because  the meat was soft and tender making it very easy to chew. The portion can be shared by 2 pax and you have got to try their chili sauce given! The burger simply makes me feel comforted and extremely satisfied. Lastly, it's not as oily as you think! *Thumbs Up*

Sambal Cheese Fries / Double Cheese Fries

To end off with the last dish, you got to try their sambal cheese fries as it is one of their popular side dishes. The amount of fries given is able to be shared among 3-4 people.

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay!

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving  Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt.  You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme.  Ambience: 7.5/10  Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme.  Tropical Smoothies  (Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20  I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-ba

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -
