In conjunction with their launch in Singapore, Hong Kong-based juice cleanse programme Punch Detox and Flutes at National Museum of Singapore came up with a juice pairing menu for a blogger session. This menu is not available for public (unfortunately) but I thought this was such a novel idea to inculcate healthy food and diet!
Here’s a run-down of the menu, just to share my experience. Perhaps some of the restaurants here in Singapore can considering coming up with such a special menu for the public.

Indeed, this photo is reminiscent of one of the many taverns at Mykonos.. the stone walls, the dominant white and blue colours..
But don’t be fooled, this is in fact a newly opened restaurant at Quayside Isle in Sentosa Cove. Mykonos On The Bay may not face the Aegean Sea, but the waterfront view at Quayside Isle is pleasing and relaxing too.Comment?
I have never been too hot about French soup. Typically, I would order a soup only when it is part of my set lunch or dinner menu.
But the onion soup at La Cantine in Asia Square is no ordinary affair.

Located at Asia Square Tower 1, this casual French restaurant is helmed by 3 Michelin starred chef Bruno Menard. Accolades aside, La Cantine is tucked in a corner beside a more prominent “The Exchange” bar. From the exterior, it feels like an unassuming cozy bistro with contemporary interior.Comment?
Two of my great food loves are coffee and ice cream. During my younger days, I could savour three large scoops of ice-cream at one go – although this is a phase that I have grown out of and hopefully would not revisit again.
One’s warm and bitter, the other is cold and sweet. It’s the perfect juxtaposition you could have at the end of a meal, or on a warm summer afternoon.

Let me tell you a secret. Sometimes, in the midst of some emotional ups-and-downs at the workplace, or in a bid to fight drowsiness, I would rely on a simple cup of Green Tea (Matcha).
Matcha contains caffeine, so it could keep you alert. But its caffeine content is different from coffee. Caffeine in coffee impacts on the adrenal glands and causes spikes in adrenaline glucose and insulin levels, causing nervousness, sleeplessness and hunger pangs. On the other hand, caffeine in matcha forms bonds with nutrients to enter the bloodstream in a time-release fashion, leading to a steady level energy over 3-6 hours.
Based on the above, I would imagine an eatery dedicated to Matcha to be a happy place – and the name “Nana’s Green Tea” sounds irresistibly cute!
