April 3 (Yao & Hez's 23rd @ Artichoke Cafe & Bar)

2 Cuties.

Breakfast with bb.
He got prawn noodles from the market.

And I had my vermicelli from Telok Blangah Mall.
The aunty gave me lotsa fried anchovies but I also brought mine from home.
LOL. I even brought a jar of fried shallots cos homemade ones are always the best!!

It's just beside the drink stall.
I LOVEEE their ban mian.
Tom yum / original or dry ban mian.
All shiok.

I didn't wash my hair for 2 days just so I could retain the grey tint on my freshly bleached and dyed hair.


In a few more years I cannot act cute alr so just let me act cute la.

Saw this kitty and I thought it was Sweet Pea!
You know the one that used to hang out with Sweet Cheeks.
He's gone now.
I got so excited at first. I carried it to where Sweetcheeks was and she seemed to not recognise it.
I was also wondering how come the tail is crooked and why did it shrink it size and mass..
Turns out to be another cat.
This one is really cute. Haven't named it yet.
Don't even know the gender.
Really miss Sweet Pea..
Wonder what happened to him..

Dinner with Strangers at Artichoke!
We were celebrating Yao's and Hezron's 23rd!!!

The tall and skinny couple.
They eat like pigs!!!
But they never ever grow horizontal.

Cutie Yao :)

It was my first time at Artichoke Cafe & Bar and I have got to say.
This place serves reallllly awesome greek/mediterranean/middle eastern food.
They all came out looking really pretty as well!!! 
I love the interesting flavours and textures from all their funky looking mezze. 

Left: Roast Pumpkin, $8 (Marmite honey, pumpkin seed dukka, sriracha yogurt)

I never liked beetroot! But this dish was amazing.

Warm Pita bread.
1 serve of pita bread has 2 in a basket, $4.50.

House-made feta 'burrata', $22
(Creamy-salty cheese, turkish toast, tomato, rooftop basil)

This was lovely.. Easily one of the best burrata dish I've ever had.

Fried cauliflower, $16

I've always only seen fried cauliflower on tumblr. LOL.
That was my first time having it and it was really good!

Smoked chicken, $26
(Lebanese pickles, garden herb relish, toum garlic sauce)

Not a fan of chicken unless it is grilled patties or DEEP FRIED CHICKADEE WOOOOOO.
So of course my comment would be bias.
However, this was pleasant.

Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder, $36
(Mechoui spice, soused cucumber, fermented butter sauce, kewpie yoghurt.)

Wow, this was so good!
The lamb was done very well. The outside is crispy, slightly charred so it made the whole dish even tastier.
The lamb was fork tender and goes well with the gravy that was soaked in it.

Hot Skillet Prawns, $36
(Green chilli harissa cream, fried onions, coriander)

This was so pretty and yummy too.
The prawns were bloody huge.
You can share one with a friend!

Everyone loved this dish!
It was alright for me only but to each his own la.
It's reallllllly pretty though.

Moroccan BBQ whole fish, Not sure of the price.
(Chermoula paste, preserved lemon butter, grilled lemon)

I liked this.

Kranji countryside mushrooms, $18
(Local farm spinach, za'atar breadcrumbs, thai basil)

This was very chinese lol but it was delicious.

Charcoal grilled pork belly, $26
(Shish kebab spice, coffee-date BBQ sauce, yuzu pickles)

I like how they play with different elements of flavours in a dish.
This of course was as tasty as it looks.
