Pictionary with emoticons


Sayesha and I started playing pictionary with emoticons (pats self on the back for the fantastic idea!) and as expected, the theme had to be Bollywood related - hindi songs in particular! Can you guess the songs?

And my favourite  -

Real Food

I think I first heard about 'Real Food - Cafe, Grocer, Books' in a vegetarian group meet up list. Since then, I have been wanting to visit the place. On saturday, I finally did. Located in the basement of Central Mall at Clarke Quay, it took some searching amongst the different outlets before we could locate it.

Orders were quickly placed. While waiting for the food to arrive, we looked around the place. Within the restaurant, they have a huge bookshelf with many books amongst which, some were about healthy eating and living. Its the kind of a place where you can pick up a book to give you some company while you eat your meal.

Oh, they also have magazines if that is more of what you would rather read over a meal :P

Brushcetta with grilled Zucchini and Pesto

Spinach tomato spaghetti

Blueberries and Banana French toast

The food was very tasty. The bread was perfectly toasted. The pasta was cooked perfect. And the crumbles of feta cheese over the pasta -Yum! The French toast didn't have an eggy taste either. I think maybe it was the banana which masked the eggy flavour. 

I will definitely be coming back for more. There were so many interesting items that I want to try out. Only vegetarians will understand how relieving it can be to visit a restaurant (in a meat loving country) and be able to order anything on the menu!

Oh, cost wise I felt it was quite reasonable. For the items the two of us had ordered (and some coffee), we paid about 35 bucks.

They also have lots of organic products on sale. Do check them out!

Gym tales

Do you guys remember in F.R.I.E.N.D.S when Chandler wants to quit the gym? And they bring out Maria?

I am so screwed!

PS: I don't intend to quit gymming/exercising. I just want to shift to one which is not as expensive as the current one.

The Flyin' Bread

The Flyin' Bread is a nice and cosy eatery located in the basement 3 of Somerset 313 (one of the newest malls in Singapore), right above Somerset MRT, on the very popular Orchard Road. Although they don't provide any seating, patrons are free to use tables and chairs conveniently located around the eatery.

Our visit to The Flyin' Bread was decided very suddenly, when we were wondering where to eat before we headed out to watch "Up In The Air". Initially, we didn't even have any plans of featuring this on Foodie Express, but we all liked the food so much and its been a while since all the core Foodie Express foodies met up to explore restaurants.

They are mainly a take-out eatery and serve up some fantastic rolls. While most of the rolls are non-vegetarian, they do have a paneer (cottage cheese) roll and I think a mushroom based roll too. Oh, they also serve some refreshing fruit smoothies.

Between the five of us, we ordered a variety of paneer, egg and chicken rolls. The rolls come in three sizes - Small, Medium and Large. Small rolls have one kebab stuffed inside the roomali rotis (flour tortillas which are soft and thin as a handkerchief), where as the medium one have two and large ones have three.

Since its a completely open kitchen, we can see the chef making the rotis. He even does  the trick of flinging the dough into the air and then catching it.

I ordered a paneer medium roll along with a mango smoothie and had a very memorable next 5 minutes relishing both the items. The roll as such was very very tasty with a hint of Indian flavour in the stuffing. Even though I had two kebabs inside the roll, I didn't feel it to be heavy. Quite a light but satisfying meal.

The food and the drinks can either be ordered separately or as a combo meal, which definitely works out to a dollar or two cheaper. Price wise, if you order the combo, it will cost you about 7 to 8 dollars. Definitely value for money. I will definitely return back. My only grouse is that there were just two vegetarian options - paneer and mushroom. I just wish they had a couple of more. Maybe corn, potato, etc..

All photos are courtesy of the owners, who very graciously let me use their photos. Since this was not a pre-planned Foodie Express outing, I hadn't taken my camera.

Shorry Shorry!

Presenting my current obsession -

I am kind of hooked onto Korean music since the past couple of days. Must ask my Korean colleague for some nice songs.

Obsession of the month...

is this song -

The first time I heard it and was LOLing about "ni woofer tu meri,meri, mein tera amplifier". But then, the song slowly crept into my mind and now refuses to get out. Not that I am complaining
