Little Ice Cream Kafe


Tanjong Katong Road is home to many eateries.  After a meal, you can get some ice cream at Little Ice Cream Kafe. 






Ice cream here are made in house and daily.  There are also many interesting flavours to choose from.  Besides ice cream, customers can choose to have waffles or brownies.  I was there on Thursday and it happened to be Brownies Day.  Brownies are sold at half the usual price if you top it up with a scoop of ice cream.

   





I had the brownies with Hersheys Dark Chocolate ice cream.  The ice cream was fantastic and the brownie was rich.







Besides Half Price Brownie Thursday,  there is also Free Mix-in Monday,  Half Price Waffle Tuesday and Eat-All-You-Can Ice cream Buffet on Friday.

Ice Edge Cafe

 
Ice Edge Café is located at a quiet corner near Kovan MRT station.  The place was almost filled with diners when I went there to celebrate my daughter's birthday.  
 
We had our all time favourite .....Agilo Oilo.  It was quite good and had lots of mushrooms. 
 
 
 
I had Presto Cream Chicken.  The chicken was tender and well-marinated and the sauce was creamy.   
 
 
 
 
Calzone was huge.  However, it was filled with air.  The fillings were quite miserable. 
 
 
 
 
We love the lava cake here as we like to observe the warm 'lava' flowing out of the cake gracefully.  The chocolate cake was moist.  The ice cream which accompanied the cake was a perfect match for the lava cake.
 
 




I was disappointed with their service.  Well... at least with one of the younger waiter.  If have a choice, I will not patronise Ice Edge Café in the near future.

Kok Sen Resturant at Keong Saik Road


 
 
 
I like to go to the older estates for meals.  I find the food at these estates taste better than newer estates.  There were many eateries along Keong Saik Road.  Most of them were cafes.  One of the eateries that stand out among the 'Westerners' was Kok Sen Restaurant. 
 
 
 
We managed to get a table despite the dinner crowd.  The dishes on the menu were almost similar to any usual zi char stall.  
 
We loved the stir-fried black pepper beef.  The black pepper sauce was hot and really whet our appetite. 


Stir-fried black pepper beer

Our favourite was Sambal Chilli Kang Kong.  The chilli was spicy and very shiok.  It was not a problem finishing a bowl of rice with only this dish.

However, I was disappoint with the Prawn Paste chicken.  I was expecting chicken wings but small parts of chicken were served instead.

Beware..... there is no AC.  If you have low threshold for heat...avoid this place.
