Indulge in Flavours of the World Epicurean Event @ Plaza Singapura

Hi Loves!

How’s your eve of Deepavali evening coming along?
I had a wonderful evening at Plaza Singapura’s 40th Anniversary for their inaugural epicurean event “Flavours of the World” held in conjunction with Cold Storage. Shoppers will be delighted with beers & wines from across the globe, Wagyu Beef, Pineapple Sausage (3 for $5), fresh oysters ($15 for 6) & Hoegaarden Rosee on tap ($8 per pint)! My drink picks: Terra Vega Chardonnay, Chianti Classico Red Wine, Rekordelig Strawberry & Lime, Strongbow Red Berries Cider. (See photos below) Also I highly recommend the Torres Black Truffles chips, aptly called the King of Chips (2 for $11.95) Attractive discounts for the produces are only for this fair held from today till 2 Nov, so stock up all your favourite snacks & alcoholic beverages! 😉

Happy Deepavali in advance folks!

Popular La Tour Coste Cotes Du Rhone Red Wine, slightly spicy and well-bodied, great to pair with Asian food & steaks.Plaza_Sing_Cold_Storage_Flavours_Of_The_World_Blogger_Review11

My favourite red wine of the lot for the night: Italian Chianti Classico, very smooth.

Chilean Luis Felipe Edwards Reserva Carmenere, one of my sister’s pick of the night. Balanced, smokey and not acidic.

Another of my sister’s pick of the night, which I like as well. Californian Red Wine Apothic Red, velvety smooth, medium-full bodied, not acidic.


Rekorderlig ciders in Strawberry & Lime (part sweet and part refreshing, my fave of the three flavours), Wild Berries & Winter Cider (pictured above with the chips).Plaza_Sing_Cold_Storage_Flavours_Of_The_World_Blogger_Review12

Thanks Plaza Singapura and Cold Storage for the kind invitation and goodies!

Since indulgence was the theme of the night (>u<), my sister and I shared a portion of Chippy’s (which is not at the Epicurean event, it’s at Basement 2 of Plaza Sing) Mars Bars in Vanilla Icecream. We are both probably the last ones to have tried this since we passed by for the Nth time, and we are glad to report that it lived up to our expectations!!!

CoCo Ichibanya Curry House @ Star Vista | Food Review

Recently I was invited down for an intimate food tasting session at
CocoICHIBANYA Curry House at Star Vista!

I was delighted to be invited for this food tasting session
because I am a fan of Japanese curry rice
which is flavourful and yet not too spicy
and I’ve previously dined at CocoICHIBANYA outlet at 313Somerset!

Star Vista is conveniently located close to Buona Vista MRT station
with sheltered walk way all the way till the mall.

Let’s take a look at what’s on the menu shall we? 😉
CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista Review CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewAs you can see on the menu above,
First you select the curry dish from the various selection available,
then you select the quantity of rice,
choose the spice level,
& lastly add toppings if you’d like! 😉

By asking for less rice, there’s a $1 deduction!
Best for ladies who wants to enjoy Jap curry rice
without busting their waistline
& extra savings, woohoo~!

For the spice levels, level 0 is standard.
We also tried level 1 and 3.
More on the various levels in a bit!

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewHere’s another pic of the toppings available on the menu,
such as cheese, kimchee (!) & mushroom.

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista Review Here’s our lovely host Lucas ordering delicious Japanese curry dishes for us. \(^▽^)/

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista Review
With my sister, Jia Hui. (^▽^)

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewOur salad greens that came with our mains.

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewLucas’ salmon croquette with cheese
less rice
& spice level 3!

We had the a taste of the curry and it had a  stronger pepper/spice taste,
definitely recommended for those who’d like their curry that pack a punch! 😉
CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewOur pork cutlet curry rice
less rice
spice level 0.

The cutlet was fried to a golden perfection,
but it was a pity that it slightly on the overcooked side
and a tad too tough for our taste.
We gave our feedback to the staff and hopefully it won’t be too tough for others in the future!

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista Review Our omelette rice aka Omu rice with mushroom & cheese toppings
with less rice
spice level 0 standard.

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewWe ordered chicken karaage to add to this dish~

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista Review As mentioned, I am a fan of Japanese rice
and I am also a BIG fan of omu-rice!

The combination of eggs, mushroom and cheese with the curry was yummy!
I liked that the mushroom tasted fresh and flavorful in diced pieces
& the chicken karaage was also perfect!

I probably had too much of goodness in my belly that day.
So this has got to be my FAVE dish of the day.
☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewWe also tried beef curry, on Lucas’ recommendaiton
with extra spinach topping that added a sweetness to the dish
with spice level 1
My sister noted that this dish had a stronger tumeric taste to it!
Definitely recommended combination for people who like beef and spinach. 😉

We also ordered a strawberry yougurt smoothie
which was sweet & refreshing!
Def’ a hit with folks who love strawberry + yougurt. 😉

CocoICHIBANYA Star Vista Enabalista ReviewA selfie picture I posted on Instagram after the lunch and
I commented that my face was bloated
probably because I pinned my hair back
but also probably because of too much delicious jap curry rice!
