Today I wanted to go to Auntie Kim’s Korean restaurant for dinner. But I arrived at the door a little too early and it was totally dark inside. So instead I stopped by Miss Clarity Cafe just down the road for a breather and to avoid the heavy road works that was taking place at the same time. I have always wondered about the vibrant hues and fanciful artwork of “Miss Clarity”. And according to Nora (owner of the cafes), the place was named after her niece.
The cafe specialises in a mix of both French, Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Most of the cooking is helmed by the head chef Jonathan, and he bakes the desserts himself. (Especially the rich coloured macarons.) For tea, I had the tea time deal (2pm to 5pm) where you could get a cake/tart/pie from the counter and a hot beverage for a steal at $6.

Today’s lunch was a Food Blogger’s meet up with the girls. Angeline and Janelle (SistaFooD), Elaine (Divine Essentials), Kaelyn (My Food Sirens II) and me decided to get together and warm our stomachs, eyes and cameras. We chose to dine at Rakuzen, one of the more popular Japanese restaurants in Singapore to start off.
Maguro Yukke – Chopped Tuna Sashimi with Avocado and Sesame
Rakuzen as a Japanese eatery features dishes that contain fresh ingredients, skilled craftsmanship and delicate taste that aims to rally devotees of traditional Japanese cuisine and perhaps those looking for a fusion between the East and the West.
A very wide variety is available in the menu and choosing what to eat would probably be very hard to decide. For me, I chose to go with the crowd and decided to order the Maguro Yukke as its uniqueness and pairing tuna with avocado called out to me.

The humongous Moo Moo II Burger ($12.90) – Juicy, succulent and definitely meaty!
Vittles opened in 2007 in a little suburban area at Sembawang Cottage. Serving up a concoction and variety of Western, Italian and fusion food, it is a homely establishment that will grab your attention for its very affordable and delicious dishes.
The Moo Moo II Burger and the Pistachio Herb Crusted Lamb Rack was recommended to me as being the House’s specialties.
For starters, I had the soup special for the day – Mushroom soup. Now this is wholly hand made with it being creamy, savoury, and the best parts were the chunky bits of mushrooms in it. The whiff of mushrooms smothered with a hint of butter emanating from the soup was enough to whet my appetite till my stomach growled.

Doria With Meat Sauce – Perfect Indulgence for the Cheese Lover
J2K3 Award Winner : Doria With Meat Sauce
Saizeriya passes off easily as a restaurant catering to the likes of families, students and young adults. With a casual dining atmosphere, it is definitely an alternative to popular chains such as Pastamania when it comes to quick Italian food.
The Doria with Meat Sauce attracted my attention as it was the “No. 1” dish in the menu as stated by the restaurant. Top it off with the picture showing a crown and I was hooked into ordering a dish.
It was served piping hot and you can literally see the melted cheese bubbling on the surface. Enough to whet any cheese lover’s appetite. A Doria for the uninitiated is actually cooked rice served with ingredients on the top and in a white sauce. The Doria with Meat Sauce was simply heavenly. Each bite was hearty and brimming with melted cheese and the savoury taste of meat. Definitely a favourite for almost anyone.
At $4.28, it is a complete meal without a burst to your budget.
