Le Spa At Chun Tin Road, Upper Bukit Timah

I was invited to experience a 90 minutes massage session priced at $90 with Le Spa located at 16 Chun Tin Road, at Upper Bukit Timah. I was pretty excited as I enjoy massage but I could hardly find one which, in my opinion, is good enough. As most masseuse did not have enough strength to exert a good enough pressure. Thus, I never really enjoy at the end. Nonetheless, I still accepted the invitation and hoping it will be good.

Though the address is 16 Chun Tin Road, the entrance is by Yuk Tong Avenue. Enter via the glass door and turn right, you will be greeted by a flight of stairs, leading to the 2nd floor where Le Spa is perched.

When entered, you will find a soothing lobby with a friendly staff welcoming you to Le Spa.

There were quite a number of individual rooms for massage and the corridor were pretty oriental in design.

I was led to a room with a simple but comfortable massage bed. Nothing fanciful. Cabinets were provided for you to put your belongings.

A masseuse entered and her name is Gigi. When she started, I could feel enough strength exerted onto my body and through out the massage, the right amount of strength was given. From the massage on my body, she could tell me which part of my body I am having aches and pain and she seems to have helped to relieve lots of the aches, especially on my shoulders which I have most problems with.

At the end of the session, I was relieved of the aches and my body felt lighten and a cup of Ginger Tea was served.

Though everything was simple, no fanciful Jacuzzi, neither bath was provided at the end of the massage but I truly enjoyed the session. In a nutshell, this is the best session I have ever experienced so far.

The good news about Le Spa is that it is run 24 hours, you can pamper yourself any time round the clock, at your convenience and at a very reasonable pricing. Beside the outlet at Upper Bukit Timah, the other outlet is located off Club Street (Gemmill Lane).

The Udder Pancake At Lorong Kilat

The Udder Pancake by Udder has this cafe on the left of its Ice Cream cafe. I was quite surprise to find them having a pancake cafe since down the street there is Nook DIY Pancake Cafe.

My first visit was while they were having their soft launch. I tried their Naked Pancakes. The cafe wasn’t quite ready yet as the red boxes that you see in the cafe now wasn’t there then. Interestingly, some of the tables there is box with glass cover over in with some ornaments. I find it a little creepy for some of the stuff.

Now their menu are in printed booklets which look more presentable. There are mainly pancakes with about 7 different creation and sides & starters, drinks and Mille Crepe Cakes

I like their Naked Pancake very much. It is soft, fluffy with melt in your mouth texture. Most importantly it wasn’t too sweet, with a nice maple syrup it was perfect. Their butter was with sea salt. With these butter added onto the pancake, it tasted a little briny which I enjoyed to the max.

On my second visit, I tried the Pulled Pork Egg Benedicts, one of their signature item. It was with Poached Egg, Bacon, pile of Barbecue pulled pork on two pancake sandwiched with grilled cheddar cheese and a side salad.  You can choose either full or half portion. I was greedy so chose full. I was hoping that the cheese was mixed with the pancake batter but it wasn’t. I find the pulled pork a little too wet. The sauce soaked the pancake and the top pancake that came in contact with the pulled pork, very quickly turned soggy. This was something a little disappointing for me. I didn’t like my pancake this way.

For the coffee, pretty decent. It was with medium to low body, low acidity, medium to low aroma and it has black tea flavour note and a sweet nutty finish.

After my main, I was very full but I didn’t want to miss on the dessert so I have it for takeaway. I got a Baileys Tiramisu home for sharing.

I like the idea of “injecting” the Baileys into the Mille Crepe with a syringe. I find the Mille Crepe delish. It was with a good balance of tiramisu creme and chocolate dusting. And it was very slightly sweetish. And with the jab of Baileys, provided more fragrance. We enjoyed it very much.

Overall, The Udder Pancake serves decent pancake and drinks and delish Mille Crepe and I will choose to return if I am around the area.

Revelry, Waffles Cafe, In Lorong Kilat

After a number of Pancakes specialty cafe, finally we have a Waffles Specialty Cafe, The Revelry Cafe at Lorong Kilat. Somehow, I always prefer Waffles to Pancakes, probably due to the texture. I was certainly excited about it. I planned to visit them on their first day but as my inertia was high on that day, plan got postponed to the next day.

Revelry is started by a pair of sibling (a sister and a brother). I have the honour to chat with the sister and understand that they wanted to create a Circus themed cafe and with the name Revelry with is supposed to mean merry, loud and noisy, they chose Elephants which they feel is a Happy animal as the featured animal for the cafe.

The design is very different from the hipster cafe that we were getting. It is very much family oriented, lively and certainly casual. The cafe has both indoor and outdoor seats catering to either preference. I like especially the lantern lighting that are up in the ceiling, making the entire cafe feel so bubbly. With the red against white wall, brighten the cafe ambience.

Revelry has a really cool menu and they are settled in a container at the corner of the counter, nearest to the entrance.

The featured item in Revelry is of course the Waffles, that comes in savoury or sweets, lots to choose from. They serve sides and some pastries and cakes with various drinks.

Ordering is to be done over the cashier and food will be served.

Revelry Signature Burffle

I was keen to try the Prawn & Cheese but it wasn’t available yet. So I switched for the Reverly Signature Burffle. It is very much a Beef Burger in Waffle as the Bun. The waffle isn’t the buttery or milky kind. In fact pretty bland but it was good for the Burffle. The entire Burffle is very tasty.

Cappuccino

The coffee is of medium to full body, medium acidity with sweet and very milk chocolaty flavour note. I like it.

I will certainly return for the sweets and other savoury waffles again and also the desserts.
