Roti Canai

Roti Canai

Mamak’s roti canai is amazing. Two curry dipping sauces and a dollop of sambal with a light, fluffy roti to rip apart with your fingers and dunk. There was a hint of spice to the curries and the roti was sweet and perfect for soaking up the flavours. This is a roti not to miss, even though I’m usually against ordering entrees!

Like last week, I had to have milk tea. It’s so comforting and sugary. It’s great to have something to calm the fires if a curry happens to be too spicy, as well!

Kari Ayam and Nasi Lemak

Kari Ayam and Nasi Lemak

We ordered nasi lemak with a side of curry fish. That was a great idea, although the bones were something to keep an eye on (same for the kari ayam!) I loved the crunchy fishies and the coconut rice. The chicken curry was fantastic, with cardamom pods and star anise floating around, a salty, tasty curry. These mains were great.

We waited a while before managing to capture the wait staff’s attention. This place is busy! We ordered the pandan and coconut roti, although there were plenty of desserts that looked tempting! This was soft, tasty and a perfect way to end the meal.

I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening feeling sluggish and full, but very content. I’m glad I got to visit Mamak! They have great food, reasonable prices and a very loyal following. Get there early, it’s usually busy around lunchtime. It opens at 11:30!

N2 Extreme Gelato, Haymarket

I went to N2 Extreme Gelato for some extreme gelato – Pandan crème brûlée! At $8 a serve the pricing was a little high but hey – it’s extreme, and exciting!

Apologies for the extremely poor photography! I loved the crunchy topping and the yummy pandan flavour of the gelato.

N2 isn’t just gelato – it’s about the experience. I’d recommend trying it out, especially for some of the more wacky flavours! It’s fun watching them use nitrogen and the blow torch they use for crème brûlée! The gelato itself is smooth and creamy, and it’s a little different from your average gelato as each serve is made individually!

Eggless Delights

Eggless Tasting Platter

Eggless Tasting Platter

Eggless Dessert Cafe is this fantastic, popular, sugary sweet cafe catering to those of us with delicate constitutions. You know, the gluten-free, vegan, polarising souls in society. Poor dudes. Their menu indicates helpful options/items with soy substitutions, gluten-free and vegan options. Maybe eggless options as well?

They open at 8pm from Wednesday to Sunday. It’s common to have a line up before 8, even on a Wednesday. Usually if you get there 10 or 15 minutes early, however, you’ve got a good chance of getting a seat.

Every month, Eggless puts out a tasting platter of four of their dishes for the month.

You see, every month, Eggless has different dishes. They rotate through a few and others are new.

Eggless is a dessert café, one of the first of the new wave, as I like to think of it. There is a decidedly Asian influence to their desserts – such as, the Pandanmisu situated third in this picture. Like a Tiramisu, but with pandan! They also do yummy doughnut balls with different flavours, like rosehip. Different and still tasty.

I’d recommend going there – the prices are fair, but servings are not large. It all balances out. Happy eating!
