    [Review] Paris Baguette Cafe Takeaways

    I was dizzy for the past few days. In case anyone wonder, nope I am not pregnant. Tested few days back and these are just the symptom of my pre-mensuration cycle. Ever since I screwed up my mensuration cycle, whenever it is going to come I will be in an extremely weak and bloated stage.

    Back to my short review, I had a takeaway from Paris Baguette Cafe at JEM branch. For this review, I will only be reviewing on the food as I think it is not fair for me to review on the cafe design and service since I did not dine in.

    Sorry if it looked misty as I store it in my fridge.

    I like how the way the label their sandwiches.

    Not sure why there is some Korea wording on the tape.

    The Mini Croissant Family. (It is just as mini as it looks)

    The Mini croissant sandwich family consist of two ham and cheese croissants and an egg and bacon croissant

    Saw this on the way I was paying. It was my favourite type of bread.

    Guessed it? Walnut Cream Cheese Bread!!

    Total Damage: S$9.90

    It was quite a high price cafe despite locating at a heartland mall. I tried it due to my curiosity but the taste was not as fantastic as the price. Let’s start with the mini croissant family, I was quite surprise how the ham and cheese tasted. I thought it would taste awful because I saw the stalk of veggie coming out but to my surprise, it taste great. It is unlike those typical ham and cheese croissant whereby it is just salty but there is a tingly flavour of freshness inside which i believed came from the veggie. However, I do not like the egg and bacon croissant. The ham and egg croissant taste great so I was hoping that the egg and bacon one taste great too but the taste was disappointing. I find it too bland and lack of savoury taste.

    Next I bought my favourite Walnut Cream Cheese Bread. It was awful. I expected more creamy taste in it but it didn’t reach that kind of creaminess. There is a strong stench of oil in the walnut like when the walnut is kept for too long. Not to mentioned it cost much more than the others which is cheaper.

    My new “portable” camera

    My G11 decided to betray me before I did. It must have known that I was ogling on other camera and got jealous. 😛

    This is the second time something happen to the G11 LCD screen. I seriously dunno how did it become like this. My friend told me that my screen got into contact with water which I have no idea how water get into my bag. The camera was in the pouch and the pouch was in my bag. No rain no water in between. I guess sometimes when the relationship is about to end, all the ridiculous thing will happen.

    Actually I was thinking to get Panasonic GF6 initially as Cheesie bought this camera and it looks just amazing. But but but!! I have some concern with the screen. Unlike Canon powershot G series whereby u flip in and out easily. When u flipped GF6 back when it is facing the front. The structure kinda of popout. You need to push in after you flip it back and I being a not so gentle person might break the camera in no time.

    In addition, I was able to pay lesser money for G1x as I am loyal to Canon. I was quite reluctant to pay for another S$160+ for repair and so I paid S$634.00 for the new camera. The suggested retail price is like S$799. (Used to be S$999 when it was just released) So without considering much, I told the person I want to buy G1x. I have actually wanted this camera since its released like 2 years ago. I know it is OLD but it has good sensor.

    Sunday double food review [Poulet and Auswine]

    My niece is finally back to Malaysia. Just what Joice told me, the whole Singapore seems to quieten down. Life is back to just 2 couples boring life. Like most Sunday, I really just want to relax and just do nothing at all. Sometimes lazing on bed is just so good. Kk and I woke up later so we had out brutch.

    We head out to Poulet. They just opened their new branch at Jurong Point. Kk and me actually had its main course before but they fail to impress us the previous time but still decided to try again. Since we do not want to have its main course again. We ordered

    Can’t remember the exact name but it is a Tuna Sandwich.

    Long Black and English Breakfast Tea

     Smith chicken and egg mayo sandwich

    Honestly, this is the first time I ate such a crispy croissant. The sandwiches that are used for Kk’s and mine are the same. The taste is perfect with the respective fillings. I can’t really review Kk’s part because I only had one bite. Kk’s tuna sanwich was nice. I guess the Croissant add a lot of the marks to it. As for my sandwich, I do feel that the egg mayo could have more mayo or seasoning as it was quite bland but the chicken filling with the sandwich managed to bring the flavour out. It taste more like a chicken sandwich then an egg mayo chicken sandwich. In addition, my food portion is big for me though I still manage to finish it. At least Kk and me will still go back for another visit. Maybe some day we will give another chance for its main course again. Or maybe poulet has good main course for steak but not the chicken or duck meat.

    After lunch, we watch the Wolverine. Hugh Jackman’s body is so so so attractive. I was asking Kk if he could train till such a body. 😛 Since it is a blockbuster so it was quite a great movie. Though I was quite shocked that the Japanese who Wolverine saved during WWII attempted to kill him to get his immortality. Though I expected that the ending and also expected that they will show a preview of the next Marvel movie.

    Went back home and decided to try the Magnum I bought…

    Can you believe it? It is pink!! Magnum Pink (Marc De Champagne)

    The taste was quite special. The chocolate crust still taste pretty much the same. However, the ice cream has a slight hint of champagne in it. It is not overwhelming.

    Slack at home till night. Decided to have something different for dinner. Joice, 2nd brother, Kk and me went to Farm Mart. This is the second time there and the first time to Auswine. I swear once you are at the door of the restaurant, you are already drooling already.

    In case u wonder, this is just plain water. 😛

    Soup of the day (I believe is cream of chicken)

    Kk ordered this. I swear the meat is just juicy and so delicious~

    Kk’s brother ordered this. Dory fish with prawn. Delicious~

    How can we forget about wine. Seriously this is the first official time I had wine with dinner.

    How can we forget the pork knuckle?? I can only say you have to eat it to believe how good it is.

    It is bigger than my fist.

    I ordered this. Baked scallop with Hollandaise sauce.

    This is the wine we ordered~

    The bill~ It cost S$136.60 for 4 of us with wine. Talking about how cheap wine and dine place.

    Even when blogging about this, my mouth is filled with saliva!!

    Let’s start with the soup. It was quite good though I wouldn’t say it is the best but I will still say it is better than average.

    Next is the chicken. I love the grilled chicken, it is grilled so well, slightly crispy on the skin, tender and juicy meat and super delicious flavours. Really very very delicious.

    Then the dory fish is fresh, I almost feel the fishy taste but no it was the fish taste, the taste of the sea, the meat is tender and when you put in your mouth, it melts there. I did not have the prawn so I can’t comment on the taste.

    Next is the pork knuckle. This is really the star main dish everyone must try if u like pork.The skin is so crispy and the oil under the skin taste so nice. The meat is so juicy and with the sauce, it just taste perfect. This is the first time I have eaten such a pork knuckles. But the portion is big, 4 of us shared this and only managed to force ourselves finish because it is just so delicious.

    The baked scallop with Hollandaise sauce is good on the first taste but become slightly oily after the first one. It might be because I ate it after it is not so warm. However, the scallop is really very fresh. I was kinda of preparing for a not so good scallop but it turned out to be very delicious~

    The wine Moscato d’Ast is something I like. Slightly sweet and aromatic~ But I think it might taste better with dessert. 🙂

    This Auswine is definitely a great restaurant out of nowhere. It is really inconvenience to go there but it is also because of its location, it is really a great place to chill but try to go earlier as parking is quite a problem there.
