Baker N Cook @ Hillcrest Road

Opened by New Zealand celebrity baker and cookbook author- Dean Brettschneider, Baker N Cook joins the ranks of international bakeries such as Maison Kayser and Paul Bakery that have recently opened their flagship store in our sunny Singapore in the past few months.

Nestled among the restaurants and shops of Greenwood Ave, Baker N Cook blends in so beautifully with its surroundings at the junction of Hillcrest Road and Greendale Ave that you would almost miss it if you were not looking for it.

This artisan bakery/foodstore/cafe displays its wide variety of pastries, breads, pies and cakes on the counters, tempting you even before you walk through the glass doors. Freshly baked croissants, meringues and muffins are just some of many goods offered as part of their handcrafted signature range amongst others which include jams, chutney and granola which are packaged for easy takeaways. Get ready for a carb-laden morning/afternoon when you get here because you will definitely be spoilt for choice!

Between the four of us, we first ordered the Pain Au Chocolat $3.10 which was crisp, buttery and well-flaked. Unfortunately, being a chocolate croissant, I would have appreciated a little bit more chocolate inside and it would have been perfect if this was served still warm from the oven.

Guide to Rundle Street Restaurants and Cafes

Happy 1st Birthday to Gninethree! It has been officially 365 days since this baby was born and the 285th post I have posted. Here’s to many more years to come!

To celebrate this one year anniversary, I have decided to put together the list of restaurants and cafes that have been very close to my heart and my home literally. Having been fortunate enough to stay in the Rundle Street area for the past 2 years and being at the heart of where the best foods are, even till late at night, this is my guide through my favourite one road street.

According to rundlestreet.com.au, Rundle Street East is the heart beat of Adelaide’s ever popular cosmopolitan East End District. Specifically located between Frome Street and East Terrace, this area is known for the many cafes, restaurants which offer many affordable lunch specials, quirky shops and Palace Nova with $6 movie tickets for Monday movies before 4pm!

Instead of using the website’s definition of Rundle Street (between Frome Street and East Terrace), I will be including places from the start of Pultney Street as well i.e. once the Rundle Mall stretch ends, to the beginning of Rymill Park. The places are categorized according to the various types of meals- mainly Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert for convenient referencing.

Ah Mei Cafe @ Railway Mall

Railway mall is like THE supper place for the family whenever we get hungry at night because EAT and Ah Mei Cafe are both 24/7. So it’s like prata/kaya toast/bak chor mee at any hour of the day. Used to come here for super early morning breakfasts after Zouk as well in the past, back when I could stay up all night..back when I was younger.

Anyhow, we came here for brekkie at 7.30am today after sending daddy off to school because he has a retreat for the next 3 days! And nothing makes a morning better than teh-si with prata!

Prata plain + Prata with egg

3 sets of 2 pratas and 3 teas only came up to $11.20. Dont you just love Singapore? :) I know I do.

Adelaide Eats: Scoozi Caffe Bar

So Ive eaten at Scoozi more than a thousand times for mostly dinners and suppers because 1) they are open to really late 2) they have the most amazing cakes at only $4.50 each 3) their pizzas are yummy 4) it’s conveniently less than a 5 min walk away from home. And I think I have given enough reasons. But anyway, Scoozi isnt exactly the first place you would think of having brekkie at yet they do serve up a pretty decent meal and I was pleasantly surprised.

Muesli with Strawberries and Bananas $6

Eggs Benedict $11.50– poached eggs with Virginian ham, sauteed spinach, mushrooms, topped with hollandaise sauce served on toasted muffins

Oven Baked Omelette $9.50– ham and cheese served with toast

And somehow seeing a well done poached egg always makes my morning!
