You and Me. You, are so pleasing to the eyes. Me, just wants to behold your beauty. You, are like a breath of fresh air. You, bring a smile to my face. You, get me coming back for more. Me, just wants more of you. Me, hates it when we part and wonders when we’ll ever meet again.

Japanese cuisine and Me.

I’d like to call it a match made in heaven.

Brunch, breakfast and lunch combined together, or otherwise termed as “late breakfast”. Brunch, this word alone gets me thinking about poached eggs, the image of molten custard yolk oozing out from their delicate whites is priceless. A wave of tranquility washes over me at the very thought of brunch. The peaceful almost-picture perfect ambience must have played a significant role. Time doesn’t seem to be of the essence anymore, the sweltering heat doesn’t even bother me, now that’s the power of brunch, comfort food for the hungry soul.

Robertson Quay, quiet by day but thronging with crowds by night. Every visit to the Quay holds a certain purpose, a memory worth recollecting. The wasted nights at DBL O, the discovery of a fantabulous slice of Le Royale at Canale for a dear friend’s 21st, my 21st birthday “tart” from Laurent Bernard’s Chocolatier, the delightful brunch and high-tea sessions at Epicurious and last but not least, the sight of grandma enjoying her very first bowl of Ramen!

Nestled within the historical national museum lies a culinary establishment. Novus – Restaurant, Bar & Cafe. With the 12 o’clock Sun blazing overhead, it would have been too early to hit the bar. Being an unemployed student, having a meal at the restaurant would have been too fanciful, or rather, a splurge. A visit to the cafe, now that sounds more like it.

After slogging in the kitchen and preparing tray after tray of pork floss buns, the trainee baker from BreadTalk is in dire need of a well deserved break. Instead of thronging the streets and joining the GSS crowd, the trainee baker refuses to get off her seat and decides it would be worthwhile to update this space.


The brightly lighted entrance, the human traffic spewing in and out of the restaurant and the dozens of mouth watering dishes on their food display, its so vibrant, its so inviting, it so calls for a visit.

Here i am, back again, at Epicurious. Epicure and curious, that is what we are. The clock strikes 4 and the 38 foodies arrived promptly, gathering for yet another one of LIC’s food outing. Early dinner or late lunch, you decide.
