[Food Review] Dolce Tokyo x Paris Baguette @ Bugis

Last Monday during the Public Holiday, the bf and I met up with my bestie and her bf for a double-date to celebrate her bday!

I got the bday girl to choose the venue for dinner and boy, I am glad she made the right choice!

These were what we ordered :

We ordered a large pizza to share and by topping up $2.50 more, you get to enjoy 2 flavours!

I can’t describe how much I LOOVVVEEEEEEEEE my smoked salmon so much s0 that even my bf loves it because he kept eating mine!!! >=[

Anyway, I thought the food at Dolce Tokyo was great but their drinks were…

I ordered Cold Azuki and it wasn’t that nice because too much milk was added, and the bf ordered a cuppa Hot Macha which was rich in its green tea flavour but not to our liking. And I forgot to snap pics of the drinks because I was busy savouring my yummy pasta…heh.

Because we were intending to drop by Haji Lane to try out rainbow cake but couldn’t due to the Public Holiday, I felt that something was still kinda missing even after dinner.

So to satisfy my craving for cakesssss, we settled at Paris Baguette at Bugis Junction.

The coffee-addict bf’s hot mocha which the staff at PB forgot about until we reminded them…

The cakes were quite delicious, save for the cheesecake because I’m not a cheesecake fan! The hot mocha was quite rich in flavour too! 🙂

What is a bday celeb without peektures!

5th Anniversary @ Moonstone The Jewel Box

Despite having faced disruptions to our initial plans, our moods were not very much affected in light of our celebration for our long awaited 5th anniversary!

Our initial plan was to head down to RWS Sea Aquarium and then proceed to Mt Faber for our dinner via cable car, which at the same time, we can enjoy the scenic view as well.

But bf was informed beforehand that he might have silent recall on the 9th/10th. We were hoping that it would actually take place on the 10th instead of the 9th on our anniversary.

But life’s like that and is never fair.

He had to head down for his mobilization during some weirdass timing at 4pm. So we could only make do with our romantic dinner.

We wanted to postpone the RWS event to the 10th but both of us were feeling kinda lazy on a Sunday (actually it’s just me).

So here goes with the pictures! 🙂

Sorry for the grainy poor reso picture taken at night with a self-shot camera of iPhone5. 😦

Lighting wasn’t ideal for photography as well.

Sapporo Premium!

Asahi Orion!

This Garlic Fried Rice is a MUST-TRY!

But be prepared for small portion to be served. It was too little for us and we had to order another bowl.

It costs 5bucks. Quite pricey for the portion served 😦

My Wakame Udon.

I’m seriously a udon lover. It’s a must-have dish for me at every Jap cuisine.

But this Wakame – Noodles with seaweed costs 8bucks!

It’s considered expensive for such plain noodles. Other places sell them like 5bucks only! 😦

These yakitori sticks are on the average 4bucks per stick which is quite expensive considering the fact they are so small and shriveled. 😦

The most expensive stick is the 2 pathetic scallops which costs 8bucks! I could have had another bowl of Udon!

Bf said that we might as well get those frozen stuffs from supermarkets and grill ourselves.

Plus, the sauce tasted somewhat like terriyaki sauce can be bought off shelves too.

It was really expensive. I tried googling for more info on Moonstone on its reviews and prices, but nothing much came up. I’d thought 4bucks per stick was alright until I saw the portions. 😦

Reviews

Food : Taste so-so, nothing special, but garlic fried rice is a must try! Oh yes, and there were loads of dishes NOT AVAILABLE!!! I was quite pissed because it was on a Saturday and unavailability of dishes shouldn’t be the case.

Price : Not pocket-friendly at all! But I guess you’re paying for the location, rental and most importantly, the ambience.

However, we were quite lucky because they were having some promotions for the ladies in conjunction with International Women’s Day last Friday on the 8th March! This was only eligible for ladies who dined with 1 full-paying male and was only valid from 8th to 9-10th March (couldn’t remember)! So yes, free dining for the ladies who come with a male companion. So we ended up paying only HALF the price!

I was quite delighted because I was initially upset over the price for the small portions served.

And because of that, we decided to order another garlic fried rice. Haha!

Money ain’t easy to earn and it’s not that we are that poor/miser/cheapskate la, just that we’ve to save up for our future 🙂 ❤

If it’s not for any special occasion, I would have preferred a plate of satisfying chicken rice, over expensive cuisines which do not even fill up my tummy for the price paid. Am not a fussy eater actually, as long I fill up my tummy 🙂

Ambience : Not bad a view but the buildings, sentosa etc were all quite tiny as there was quite a distance. Other than that, not much wind either.

Customer Service : Alright, until 1 of them actually showed some ‘attitude’ when I misheard 50% as 15% and she gave that ‘Are you freaking deaf and we are not so cheapskate’ kind of look when she clarified it as ‘50%’. Whatever.

But another waitress was friendly when requested to snap a picture of us a few times using digi cam and polaroid.

Accessibility : Places such as Mt Faber/Dempsey Hill are inaccessible if you don’t drive/cab.

We wanted to walk down to Henderson Wave but in the midst of doing so, the remote dark roads filled with lots of trees sent shivers down our spines. It looked quite scary. So we detoured back.
