Happy Valentine’s Day-Part 1

Hello there, how did you spend your Valentine’s Day? (:

I spent 3 days with 3 different people for Vday meetups and I missed them so much!

Meetup #1: Wifey J!

Caught up with her before I went to Malaysia, and we went to Cafe Cartel because we really love the food there! So, for the two of us, we shared an Oriental Chicken Salad, with Herb and Vinaigrette Dressing (for her) and Thousand Island Dressing (for me), with a St Louis Baby Pork Ribs, and topped it up with a Soup of The Day, Garlic Bread and Drinks! It came up to $34.40 after GST for us, and I guessed it was a good deal because it was really filling (:

Oriental Chicken Salad ($11.80++)

St Louis Baby Pork Ribs ($14.80++)

And you just have to top up another $3.90++ for the soup, bread and drink, quite a deal eh? (:

I loved the salad because they were absolutely fresh and yummy with the sesame dressing for the chicken, and the ribs were cooked such that the meat separated easily from the bones. Succulent meat and the tangy dressing made the meal a really satisfying one!

These two items made up the must-eats in Cafe Cartel, do try these two items if you’re going there! 😀

And presenting to you, my pretty Wifey! ^^

Meetup #2: baby J!

Met up with baby J at Cartel again hahah! It was a last minute decision and we just decided to pop in there without any reason haha. So I was trying to decide what to eat, and decided on a Pan Fried Linguine (no photos because my Memory Card was corrupted 😥 gahh) with the top up again.

The linguine was basically similar to an aglio olio with sauteed mushrooms and succulent chicken, and I liked it pretty much! However, nothing still beats the pork ribs heh!

Spent the hour with baby J as my Valentine’s before heading home to continue my date with my research paper! (: Love you girl, and thanks for the present!

Bakerzin!

Had lunch with M at Bakerzin yesterday because we needed to find somewhere nice for a meeting.

I always liked Bakerzin because of their free flow bread (I love my breads), but I can’t really say the same for the food.

M ordered a Teriyaki Chicken Rice ($12.90++)

And this is my Aglio Olio with Bacon and Ham ($12.90++)

I loved my Aglio Olio, pasta was al dante, the seasoning was perfect with the spicy kick from the chili padi, and the servings for the Bacon and Ham were adequate.

M on the other hand didn’t really like his rice, he said the chicken was overcooked, and not as tender.

One of the reasons that I will go back to Bakerzin? The free flow of bread. I love my bread yumyum 😀 And their bread is so fragrant that I cannot stop chomping on it!

I was impressed by their standard of service as it had improved since I last visited and the captain was friendly and approachable, which was something very different in my Bakerzin experience.

Felt it was a little overpriced at the quality of food though. They didn’t have any set meals on offer and hence we decided to stick to the mains since everything else was so expensive.

Verdict? Let’s just give it a 2.5/5 since I love their bread. ❤
