the last coffee 2005  
tony was in town from taiwan! :) we caught up @ coffee club, raffles city on NYE arvo.

ok, so i lied. i didn't have a coffee. i had a vanilla milkshake. which was very good... with a generously big blob of vanilla ice cream in it. i slurped it all up in less than half an hour. it was one of those 'once you start, you can't stop' thingies.

tony's tiramisu latte was apparently not too bad too.

ps. i was actually going to check out epicurious @ robertson quay, recommended by [Hairy Donut]. but dang it! it was pouring like elephants' piss and blindly stumbling around in such conditions to find a cafe i've never been before didn't seem like a smart thing to do. ahem.

feelin': hungryhungry

!! Epicurious!
I'm flattered that you wanted to check it out! They're closed on Mondays, but open the rest of the week for lunch and dinner. It's a great neighbourhood - there's also Simply Bread around the corner with outside seating, right next to that strange looking thin glass hotel with a pub downstairs (name escapes me). I'm not describing this very well, am I. There are also 2 Japanese restaurants flanking Epicurious that seem extremely popular with Japanese people but I've not checked it out as that would be disloyal to Epicurious (am weird that way).

oh hey! i've eaten at the japanese place, the one where you grill your own choice of meat on a little barbie on the table! [here]'s my old post on this place... it was really good! definitely worth checking out... (maybe you can do lunch @ epicurious and dinner @ aburiya to dispel feelings of disloyalty... heh)

the thin glass hotel would be gallery hotel? with coco latte and moloko beneath?

Re: !! Epicurious!
Yes. And it only took 4 hours for me to remember the name of the pub is Liquid Room.

I can't goto Aburiya - it's really too close to Epi and I know the owners of Epicurious from my trips there - it would just be too disloyal.

Re: !! Epicurious!
