16072017 / Singapore 2017 Day 4

On the second and last day of our home searching, I had my breakfast in the room while Sister had her complimentary breakfast buffet at Prego. The realtor picked us up from the lobby entrance around 10AM and off we went for our second series of home searching. We covered 9 properties that day and basically had no luxury to have lunch properly. We made do with Cheers and had wraps on the go.

After we were done home searching for the day, the realtor sent us back to the home of Sister’s colleague and we went out for afternoon tea together. Sister’s colleague (let’s call her J) intended to bring us to another pet friendly cafe in the neighborhood but we stumbled across Flock Cafe on the way. So, we decided to just have our afternoon tea at Flock Cafe instead as it was one of the highly recommended cafes in Singapore by Andrea.

FLOCK CAFE
78 Moh Guan Terrace #01-25, Singapore 162078

This was my second visit to Flock Cafe as I had been there couple of years ago on my second visit to Singapore. As we have a pet with us, we need a place which has outdoor dining and Flock Cafe was just perfect at the time.


Say hello to Stanley! I am not sure what breed Stanley is but I think he is a Terrier. Correct me if I am wrong. I snapped a few candid shots of him but this was the best one in my collection.

Genmaicha Latte | S$6.50

I requested for a regular Matcha Latte but they did not have it. One of the staffs recommended me their Genmaicha Latte instead. It was pretty good despite being tad bit sweet. I think the sweetness came from the matcha powder itself. So, it was all good.

Carrot Cake | S$8

Sister wanted to try their Matcha Cake but the customers before us snapped the cake while they placed their orders. So, I got us the last piece of Carrot Cake available. It was good but the frosting was sweet. All in all, it was a good slice.

Pork Cheek Burger | S$18

braised pork cheek, cheddar, slaw, tomatoes, lettuce, Dijon mustard, mayo served with side of Cajun fries

I always crave for fries whenever my time of the month is approaching. Upon ordering, I asked if they serve regular fries and was being told they only have Cajun Fries. As I was checking their menu, I told Sister that Flock Cafe is well known for their Pork Cheek Sandwich. So, we got ourselves a Pork Cheek Burger to share and it came with Cajun Fries on the side. The texture of pork cheek was extremely tender. It has the texture like mashed up cooked tuna flesh with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

After our tea break at Flock Cafe, J walked us back to Tiong Bahru MRT Station and off we returned to Fairmont Hotel to freshen up a bit before heading out for dinner later in the evening. I was telling Sister that I will bring her to Tanjong Pagar MRT Station as I came across a shop selling air flown perishable goods at an affordable price. Unfortunately, the shop was closed early for the day. For your information, majority shops around Tanjong Pagar close pretty early on Sundays.

I was craving for Korean cuisine that day. So, we exited the station and walked to Amoy Street as I remembered seeing lots of Korean restaurants in the area. Most of the restaurants were close at the time but Korean restaurants are mostly open. I chose Hyang Yeon Korean Kitchen as it was the one restaurant which I saw with quite an number of patrons as compared to other Korean restaurants in the area. So, I guess their food must be better?

HYANG YEON KOREAN KITCHEN
80 Amoy Street #01-01, Singapore 069899

Hyang Yeon Korean Kitchen is operated by a Korean family if I am not wrong. The place was nicely decorated with Korean ambiance. The menu is extensive. I was craving for Budae Jjigae (Army Stew) but I doubted that the two of us would be able to finish the whole thing. So, we got ourselves other dishes in smaller portion.

Sikhye | S$4

Complimentary Banchan that came with our food. The eating utensils were wrapped nicely with a Korean touch. For your information, the Kimchi was good and I asked for a refill.

Hand Made Dumpling | S$15

I requested for Kimchi Mandu upon ordering but the staff came back informing us that they were out of Kimchi Mandu. So, we made do with Pork Mandu instead. To be honest, I did not find anything special with their Pork Mandu. I think I like the Chinese version of Xiao Long Bao better. LOL!

Jjajangmyeon | S$18

I was telling Sister if this restaurant serves decent and authentic Jjajangmyeon, we could always bring Mom to try it out the next time she visits Singapore. However, their Jjajangmyeon has been improvised to cater the local taste. It was pretty sweet in my opinion when the real deal was so much saltier.

So, this summed up the fourth day of my Singapore trip. I still have an overdue third and last day. So, do stay tune if you are interested.
