the thai chilli lobster was the best, at a special promo price of S$88

prawn fun cheong – S$7 

all the dimsum were good, very pleasantly indeed above our expectations.

har gao was good. skin & filling both good. no better than the good dimsum places like crystal jade & imperial treasure.

steamed prok ribs

steamed pork ribs – S$6 

steamed pork ribs better than many places. yam very nice, pork ribs not too fat.

chilli crab bun

salted egg custard bun – S$6 

the skin though, both my daughter & i felt it was thicker & not as soft as the better ones at crystal jade etc.

i also had a S$100 chope voucher for S$90, so S$10 discount which could be used here.

lunch came to S$143nett. so with S$10 chipe duscounts, it was S$133nett

less the lobster, that would be S$33.60++=S$39.50nett!

quite good eh?

breakfast @ tartine

we had a long & fun day on 27.3.2016, waking up in the wee hours to catch a taxi to luton to board a flight from london to lisbon.

so we all had a restful sleep, and planned for a later breakfast on 28.3.2016. ^^

wife & daughter had done their yoga.

daughter read about tartine (a short walk from our apartment) so we decided to go there for breakfast. 🙂

it was past 9am & not so many customers…

egg cream pastry - the best!

egg cream pastry – the best!

the pastry counter lady said this egg cream pastry was a popular item here.

i think it was the best, better than the natas & other portugese pastry we had & subsequently…

natas @ tartine

natas @ tartine

the natas here were good too.

i would say this was better than the natas we had at paradia portuguesa @Praça Luís de Camões.

& perhaps pasteis de belem’s was a bit better than this

portugese sweet croissant

portugese sweet croissant

we ordered the portugese version of croissant just to try.

this however was disappointing. the french croissant is much better for my palate.

soft boiled egg with toast

son was hungry, so he ordered a soft boiled egg with toast. not my kind of food.

expresso with cream

wife took a expression with cream & i took my usual flat white.
