Pantry at the Stables – Father’s day dinner

Daddy was invited to a food tasting session at “Pantry at the Stables“. With a name like that, you would be expecting dining somewhere near to exotic horses?

During the drive in, you will feel a sense of “countryside”, right here in urban Singapore. The journey is made more authentic when we spotted some horse poo 🙂
(Daddy Kelvin has graciously offer a ride)

Located at the Fairways Drive Green. Daddy suspect this is one ulu (remote) destination which Taxi drivers might try to avoid.

Daddy ordered Cookies and Cream shake for his beverage. Who can resist Oreo dipped in chocolate shake? Indulgence at $9.

Pantry at the Stables had a special offer for Father’s Day set at $49.

#01 Starter : Crab cake on celeriac remoulade, topped with wild rocket and shaved fennel salad
If you love crab, you will love this starter. Rich Crab fillings will surround your taste bud.

#02 Mains : Linguine alio olio with crispy pork belly , mushroom and parsley parmesan chilli crumbs
The crispy 烧肉 (roasted pig) is so sinfully delicious. You can hear the crunchiness. Who would have thought of 烧肉 in a western restaurant?

#03 Dessert : Bitter sweet chocolate torte with poached figs and vanilla bean ice cream

We did not try the torte, but we went for “Sticky Date and Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream” ($12). We heard this is Pantry’s all time favourite dessert since 1999 !

For $49, the above three dishes were offered as part of Father’s Day celebration.
There are more to share from the Stables.

Spaghetti Carbonara ($24)
Thick creamy sauce for those who love their Spaghetti sweet. We had to consume this while hot, or the spaghetti will taste bland and overbearing once it cools.

Mexican Chicken Salad ($22)
There are are so many ingredients in this salad, crispy tortilla, avocado,
spiced corn and salsa. They mess really well in our mouths. Hard to describe the taste, but Daddy love the texture and refreshing bites.

Steak and Eggs ($38) – on a skillet with smashed peas
Delicious! Daddy always prefer his beef well done, but he was tempted by the medium rare steak. We heard this is one of the popular dish at Stables.

Cupcakes ($4.50 each)
Although we were quite full already , we could not resist some dessert attacks. We gobble down an Elvis (chocolate banana cake with peanut butter frosting), Red Velvet (red velvet cake with coconut cream cheese frosting) and cupcake of the month (June banana and passion fruit cupcake).

Must admit the Red Velvet’s coconut sweetness won Daddy over.

More than the food, Daddy gives 8.5 for the ambiance. Sunday brunch at the Stables should be very desirable for families. Imagine dining in the “country side”, with the occasional sightings of horses.

We would like to take this opportunity to thanks the nice people from FoodNews (Janice) and “Pantry at the Stables” for hosting us.

Pantry at the Stables is located at 55 Fairways Drive, Singapore 286846

Charly T’s for Mother’s Day celebration

We went for an early Mother’s day celebration at Charly T’s 112 Katong branch.

Daddy had earlier won a tweeter contest, which entitles us to a whole Rotisserie chicken. The staff at this outlet is super friendly, and keep our kids entertainied throughout, thumbs up 🙂

This is Charly T’s signature dish. The chicken comes with a a tad bit of herbal and maybe pepper dosage. But our kids love the chicken, leaving no skin or shreds behind. Not too oily, and one chicken with side-dish can serve three adults.

We thought their Jumbo Schnitzel Burgers look impressive on their LCD screen, and since the kids need more fries, we went ahead to order a Jumbo Schnitzel burger.
(Wiki mention Schnitzel is an Austrian way of preparing boneless chicken fillet)

Love the breaded chicken burger style, with crispy bacon on top, enough juicyness to make two person happy 🙂

Happy Mother’s day to 奶奶 (Nai Nai) and our Mummy, and all the wonderful mummies out there !

Love the food, love the mall, but the only negative feedback must be the horrible traffic jams in and and around Joo Chiat and East Coast road. Carpark is always full at 112 Katong, we recommend you to cater 20min for evening jams.

If you feel like dining at Charly T’s, our fanpage is running a $30 voucher giveaway.
Do pop by to support 🙂

Food Revolution Day, Singapore

On 19 May 2012, the Jamie Oliver Foundation will launch its first-ever Food Revolution Day, a global day of action to inspire, educate and empower people everywhere to stand up for real food.

  • What: Food Revolution Day Dinner Party
  • When: 19th May 2012, 4:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Where: The Lawn, Biopolis Way

In Singapore, a group of passionate food lovers, are putting their heads together and organizing Food Revolution Day. This is an attempt to help spread awareness about the importance of what goes into our food.

Why we’re starting a revolution
These days, the majority of the world’s population is more likely to die from obesity than from hunger. In fact, in America, more people die from diet-related diseases every year than drugs, alcohol, and war combined.

That’s why we want to inspire change in people’s food habits and to promote the mission for better food and education for everyone.

You can expect to see cooking demos, food photography and healthcare talks.
We will be looking forward to catch up with our food blogger friends.

Hello to Ms Tam Chiak, Derrick, Ms Lobster and Melissa 🙂

Food bloggers are a special breed of people, besides taking awesome make-you-hungry pictures, their vocabulary is very powerful. They can use 10 words to describe cheese, when Daddy can only say cheese is “sweet or sour” wahaha (get it?)

Oh, and food bloggers are mostly fun people who love to share their photography and culinary insights. Everybody is welcome, come down with your family, kids, and friends.
Have fun, eat healthy and simply ENJOY the day 🙂
