Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay is a new cafe that opened along the Singapore River. This is their second outlet in Singapore. Their first one is at Loewen Road in the Dempsey dining area. Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe is run by a Melbourne expat, mother of 5-year old twins. Her food photography skills are also very good. The pictures on her website / blog are amazing and played a role in enticing us to go have brunch at Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay recently.
The opening of the English House by Marco Pierre White in Mohamed Sultan Road Singapore was an eagerly awaited event. There are many notable facts about the place. The chef was the first Briton to be recognised with a three star Michelin award at the age of 33. He appeared in one of the last rounds of the Masterchef Singapore competition. Former nightspot Madam Wong’s used to occupy one of the houses. We remember Madam Wong’s as one of the first places to open in the area, a pioneer in the gentrification of the Mohamed Sultan area. It was therefore with some anticipation when we finally went to The English House for lunch recently.
The Little House of Dreams and Ben & Jerry’s at Dempsey seem like a good place to host a children’s party. They are neighbours in Block 8 of Dempsey Hill. They have two separate entrances but once inside, their spaces are interconnected. The Little House of Dreams is a cafe which has been done up in a very cute way and some parts of it look like the inside of a doll’s house. With Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream available on demand, we think that the young and the young at heart will have a good time.
