It was a random Friday night, after work, hunting for dinner. A friend suggested me dropping by at De Burg (not knowing where or how to get there), I decided to give it a try. Yes, all the way from Pasir Ris interchange to Lavender, missed the stop, ended at Kallang then back to Lavender. Then, followed by the most reliable mode of transport, on foot! Turned out to be a nice evening stroll, accompanied by the reddish-orangey sky!

As soon as I found the place, I was then ushered to my seat and the waiter gave me the menu, a whole long list of various burgers! As I am here for the first time, hence, the golden finger pointed at the signature burger on the menu.

Cozy inside and I love spending time to myself in cozy places especially on Friday nights. photo 20150313_220707_zpssibrkqkf.jpg

While waiting for dinner to be served, the next thing in the house which drew my attention was the Asahis! I may not be a fan of beers but I never knew that there are three types of Asahi. All I remember is Asahi is Asahi. :P But now, I learnt that there is Asahi Premium, Asahi Dry Black and Asahi. photo 20150313_221023_zpse3c2ksa4.jpg

All of these Asahi can be mixed. Half Asahi Premium Jukusen and half Asahi Premium Black Kuronama ($11.00). #SuperDry ! Besides Asahi, De Burg serves Beer Lao too! The last I had was 3 years ago in Laos itself.

Here you go, the signature De Burg ($18.50), with unlimited fries served. The highlight is having my tiny mouth chomping the burger all the way! Super juicy grilled portobello mushroom! De Burg is served with 200g of Aus beef patty, BBQ sauce, grilled crispy bacon, greens, tomato, onion and mayo. Love the flavourful blend of the patty. It has to be some secret recipe from De Burg!

Fret not if you are not a beef person cuz De Burg serves lamb burgers, pork burgers, chicken burgers, seafood burgers as well as vegan burgers!

And finally, yours truly pen down a few words too :D photo 20150313_221053_zpsvajutjkz.jpg

[SINGAPORE] Lime Deli @ Telok Ayer

Lime Deli, located strategically in the midst of CBD in Singapore. Its a casual place serving Caribbean delights where you are able to catch up with friends. Also, here is where you can do a quick takeaway, mainly catering to the CBD folks. It is also learnt that the deli is an extension of the Caribbean food serving restaurant; The Lime House.

Prepping up with the mixing corner! photo DSC_0902_zpshmogfjyb.jpg photo DSC_0896_zpswfjqwpfi.jpg

Peaking into the kitchen, where everyone is busy preparing food for us. photo DSC_0898_zps97ookvjb.jpg

The non-spicy Chicken Curry ($13) is marinated in Trini which suits the locals’ taste buds. photo DSC_0910_zpsz5ozfaog.jpg

Jerk Chicken ($13), seasoned overnight in Jamaican Jerk seasoning, grilled and served with BBQ sauce. I love the tenderness of the chicken and it is not heavily boosted by the BBQ sauce.

 photo DSC_0911_zps1vshsnx4.jpg

The Caribbean Chef Hasan Defour, the person behind all the scrumptious food served for the night. He might probably look familiar to you as he had been featured in various media.

Aside from meeting new friends and learning more on Caribbean cuisine, I picked up something new. Ever wonder what #weliming is all about? Lime actually means “lepak” in our very own Malay word, basically a stress-free time spent chilling with family and friends.

The meat was braised to the perfect texture and tenderness with just the right usage of herbs.

I can never had enough of Lime Deli Rum Punch ($10). Just too good especially right after a long day at work.

 photo 20150226_192330_zpspnxbxvvr.jpg

If you ain’t looking for something heavy, Rasta Pasta Salad ($7) would possibly be the right choice!

 photo DSC_0918_zpsewna2wrj.jpg

Sandwiches anyone? There are three flavours, mainly Jerk Chicken ($6.50), Smoke Salmon & Guacamole ($6.50) or the Fillet Steak Sandwich ($11). A simple munch for grab-and-go meal for those who are always in a hurry.

Dessert is love.

Hanoi On Foot

I heart sights like this. Nothing feels as good as you. Pretty weather, nice people, great travel partner. Here you go, bits and pieces of Hanoi.

 photo DSC_0012_zps8f33b32c.jpg photo DSC_0014_zps6ad1c623.jpg

The traffic in Hanoi can be cranky, having all sorts of vehicles coming from every corner with very few traffic lights and no accident occur.

 photo DSC_0028_zpsff168ad7.jpg photo DSC_0029_zps590e4d6a.jpg

I kept calling this as Comot. Hence, Jalan Comot it is, in my own terms :P photo DSC_0072_zpsf137dc69.jpg photo DSC_0086_zpsd6bc86f4.jpg

Too many street shots and I love every single one of them! photo DSC_0088_zps6c8bcf5a.jpg

… and I can never get enough of the street food in Hanoi. Simply awesome!
