Jamie Italian @ Vivocity


Jamie's Italian at VivoCity has started servicing breakfast on weekends from 930am to 1130am. I thought this is a fantastic idea. I can have my breakfast in the morning until 11am before proceeding to do my shopping at Vivocity when the shops' open.

Latte 4/5

I an the type that needs a cup of coffee to kick start my date. Hence the first thing I ordered is a cup of Latte ($5.50). The coffee used at Jamie's Italian is from Musetti, a family run Italian company since 1934 that roasts their beans in a strict artisanal way over three generations. The body of the coffee is not too strong and acidic. It was bitter sweet coffee was smooth and easy to drink.

The Works 4.2/5

The huge servicing of The Works ($19.50) comes with Toulouse sausage, pork & honey sausage, outdoor reared streaky bacon, choice of freedom range egg, vine roasted cherry tomatoes, homemade baked beans, garlic & thyme oven roasted portobello mushroom, fresh spinach & toast. This is like the Italian style of big breakfast, you basically have everything in a plate. The creaminess smooth scrambled eggs and the sweet vine roasted cherry tomatoes were the highlights in the plate. There is also a vegetarian version on the menu.

Bacon & Egg Buttie 3/5

The breakfast menu offers three choices of breakfast butties. I decided on the Bacon and Egg Buttie ($9.50) that comes with streaky bacon, roasted tomato and a fried egg. A typical English breakfast but it was not something memorable with the price tag.

Smashed Spicy Avocado 3.8/5

Catering for the vegetarian is another dish on the menu, the Smashed Spicy Avocade ($12.50) with toasted ciabatta, vine roasted cherry tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce.I like the whole concept with the flavours working in harmony with one another. However I felt the avocado was a bit too runny to my liking.

American Style Berry Pancakes 4.2/5

Adopting from Jamie's original receipt was the American Style Berry Pancakes ($14.90) which comes with thick, fluffy pancake stack. The pancakes are Jamie's daughter's favourites which he makes for them regularly. Topped with maple syrup, mixed berries and orange mascarpone, this is one of my favourites in the new breakfast menu that I have tried.

The new breakfast menu at Jamie's Italian is ideal for a leisurely meal with the family or over a weekend paper, or grab a cup of coffee and some freshly baked bread before a full day of shopping. I would recommend trying The Works and pancakes.

Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (天天来炒福建虾面) @ Toa Payoh Lorong 1


When we mentioned about Singapore street food or hawker food, one of the favourite local's hawker dishes is the Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. It is quite obvious as we can find this dish in almost every food courts and hawker centres. Even so that everyone has its own favourite stall or best fried hokkien mee list. Today I am at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 to check out this popular fried hokkien prawn mee stall called Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (天天来炒福建虾面).

Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee 4.2/5

When I visited the stall on a weekend morning, I noticed a young man behind the wok frying the fried hokkien prawn mee. I could not remember the price of the portion I ordered but it did look very appetizing when it was transferred from his wok to the servicing plate. I could already smelled the aroma from the pork lard from a distance.

Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee 4.2/5

The fried hokkien prawn me here is the moist or gooey type which I like. The delicious stock is well infused into the noodles giving it a very rich and sweet flavour. I personally felt the stock was on the sweet side but from its popularity, it seems like it is well received by many. I would prefer something that is more garlicky. The spicy sambal also comes with a kick that goes well with the slurping good noodles.

Fried Hokkien Mee 4.2/5

Overall I felt that Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (天天来炒福建虾面) gets my thumb up for a delicious plate fried hokkien prawn mee. It will easily made it into my top 10 fried hokkien mee in Singapore.
