Jumbo @ Dempsey

When my sister returned from the US for a visit, mom insisted on taking her to Jumbo @ Dempsey for a meal. Mom had previously had a good meal with guests from Thailand, and thought that my sister would like the food.

1A Crispy Puffs: Chicken curry puff, goreng pisang

Curry puffs with multi-layered, flaky skin are sometimes a welcome textural change from the usual curry puffs with thicker, more doughy, single-layered skin. They are fun to eat too - you can break off the crust layer by layer, like eating rainbow kueh lapis.

Nut stash from the US

If you are a nut lover and are in the US, or someone can carry nuts from the US back for you, do give Costco's Kirkland-brand nuts a shot.  Everytime my sister visits from the US, she carries with her a few bags of Kirkland's nuts, and every single piece has tasted really fresh compared to the nuts I have bought in Chinatown. In August, my sister returned from the US again and brought back these bags of nuts for us.

Awfully Chocolate: All Chocolate cake

Yes - this is the first time I am trying Awfully Chocolate's chocolate cake. I know Awfully Chocolate has been around for a few years and I am behind on the cake scene (laugh). I have been wanting to try it ever since people were saying it tastes like Lana Cake Shop's, or even better, and might have sooner if it sold by the slice.

Straits Kitchen, Grand Hyatt Singapore

Before getting into the review proper, I will explain the drab-looking pictureless post.

When my friends and I arrived at Straits Kitchen at Grand Hyatt Singapore for their hawker buffet, I began taking photographs of their various stations using my trusty Samsung Galaxy SII. After a few snaps, a waitress suddenly appeared and told me "You're not allowed to take photos in here." My expression must have been "???" because she repeated herself, and said that the exception was that if I, or other people, were in the picture as well.
