Bringing the whole village over to Bees Knees!

Because the churros were so good, we had to bring the whole village! So we set a date to come here for the churros!


Everyone agreed it was good! It was thick and had a moist center and it was served hot! Oh so good with the cinnamon sugar!

Since we were here for this, the churros deserves more ootd shots! 


Dressed in glittering cinnamon and sugar!



And I know I have raved abt the beef papardelle and today I can conclude for sure, all their pasta are good! 

All their pasta, regardless of forms, were super good in texture! 

Something new on the menu we tried today was the pesto sauce with bone marrow pasta....


The bone marrow had a layer of charred cheese above and it was good! The bone marrow was ok but the shell shaped pasta was so good! The sauce is good if u like pesto like we do! The texture of the pasta was bouncy! Love it!

The prawn pasta...


Love the taste once again! It's got the prawn bisque kind of broth, very little gravy (wish there was more). Texture of pasta was again bouncy! The prawns looked not so fresh thou with all the black parts...


And of course, the beef papardelle we love and have raved so many times about!


The carbonara was also the hot favourite....


Amazing pasta at a great price! Sadly they close really early (8pm) even for a weekend night. Else it's a great place to hang out with good food!

Menu variety also would like to see them have more stuff since the chef obviously does very well!

Rebel Chefs

Did you know, beside Katong 112 there's a new Katong Square? Filled with quite a few new eateries!

The place seems quiet for a weekday night probably it's still pretty new. 

Tonight's dinner is over at Rebel Chefs! Located very inside the mall, look out for Baikohken or Killiney and you will see it!


The menu...


We were first served the focaccia....


It was soooo good! Home made according to the chef, Richard. One of the better focaccia I would say is at Prego and this is close to it! The thyme adds a flavor to it and it's so good! The bread is easy to tear and every mouth is a delight!


The burrata salad with a generous amount of rockets, black olives and very sweet cherry tomato! 




Mushroom soup...


Thick creamy mushroom soup with a charred mushroom that's so yummy! 

When evaluating the menu before I got there, I was very keen on the calamari coz it's got squid ink mayo! Today was even better! They had baby squid!


It was so good! The texture of the squid was great, the sauce had the squid taste too! Very good!


And here's what we were here for! Mussels! Saw quite some good reviews of their mussels and chef Richard also told us that their mussels are fresh from a local supplier...



It was really good! Particularly the sauce! A bit white wine and saffron-ish! The mussels were indeed fresh! We finished all the sauce!


Delightful meal!


For meals, we went with the beef stew...



The flavor was full and the beef was so soft. Very yummy!

We also went for the pork belly!



The pork belly skin is crackling! The meat was also tender. 
Limited portions everyday!

Dessert was homemade ice cream!


It's like kinder surprise! It's got raisins and chocolate inside, every mouth there's something. 

A short catch up with Fiona!

Happy birthday Xin!

It is Xin's birthday today! The family has celebrated it for her over the weekends so I wanted to do a little something for her today.

In fact today is supposed to be my dinner get together with JJ but I had a Duno is bak zam or Duno is pimple or Duno is infection thingy on my eye yday. It was a little painful so we rescheduled the dinner. Luckily we rescheduled coz I tried to head over for xin's surprise during lunch but there was just way too much work today. 

I effectively only got to end work at about 8 and luckily bunny was available to pick me up and we literally dashed to get the cake and over to Xin's! Luckily I had Guan as spy and the surprise was semi successful! 

She spotted me while I was trying to call Guan at the door!







It was a quick and nice surprise I guess. Hehe coz she really wasn't expecting it and the boys were excited over the cupcakes! Dylan immediately said he wants the salted caramel while Thaddeus went for the red velvet!

And yes I was 素颜 coz of my eye. I am indeed photogenic! In person look so cui but on photo looks ok leh! Hahahahaa

Glad to have managed to do this for xin with bunny's help! Happy birthday xin! May u continue to spread your positive energy around!

We found the best churros ever!

Arranged a date with Ginny to bring her over to Bees Knees for the super awesome papardella, also to thank her for her help in helping to design my super pretty name card!


And yes, follow me follow me on instagram and Facebook!

So yes, Ginny did up the design for me! She was such a pro at it and today is an appreciation for her!

And so, we ordered our drinks...

Her latte...


My peanut butter Nutella milk shake...


The milk shake is so awesome! It's thick and not overly sweet with the fragrance of nuts and peanut better. It's super good! 

We tried their wagyu salad....


The beef salad is probably the only thing not to our liking today. The sauce is a bit sweet and the beef didn't have much of a beefy taste.

The papardelle that we came here for....


A closer look...


As soon as ginny tried it, she said "oh man this is awesome, I love it!"

It's true! Their pasta is so bouncy in texture! This is good quality pasta and the sauce is the very natural home made tomato sauce that's not overly thick. It just blends so well with the pasta. A must try!

We wanted to try their brunch food but we were a little late so we ordered another pasta instead....


With this vongole and my previous try on their carbonara, I can safely tell u, they make damn awesome pastas! Even their spaghetti is bouncy in texture! 

Importantly, the vongole was so fragrant! The clams were of a good size and the sauce married the pasta so well. The vongole was really good!

We also ordered a waffle to share....


The rice crisp and waffle was pretty good. Probably I didn't really like chocolate sauce but they had loads of it. But overall it was nice.

Bunny last minute came to join us and she rushed down simply coz she wanted that papardelle!

She also ordered her favourite churros....


I'm not a churros lover but she is. So I was initially disapproving of this order coz we already had the waffle but it was the best thing ever!

This is totally unlike any other churros I've tried! It's thick and the exterior is crisp and the inside is so soft!!

The texture is so divine! In fact Ginny said that like me, she doesn't really fancy churros but it was so good we almost wanted to make bunny order another one! It was really super good!


We are definitely coming back again for the churros and papardelle!! For sure!!

Ginny bought a skirt from me!


This is the black Paris story skirt!

Am thankful to Ginny for her sound beauty tips on skincare and her generous personality, always offering to help when she can! 

Am so glad we rekindled this friendship!




The top I'm wearing is our Lora Tropicana offshoulder top! Reach out if anyone is keen! :)
