Review: Cheap Eats at Hawker’s Delight

by gigi on July 31, 2008

Tricia and I decided to meet up one day for a cookie baking session but first, we had to grab some dinner.  We decided to go to Hawker’s Delight by King Edward and Main because it was a cheap and fast option.  I had never been to Hawker’s Delight before because I always tried to […]


Review: Corner 23 Bubble Tea

by gigi on July 29, 2008

After my birthday dinner at Bistro Sakana, we decided to continue the evening and go for bubble tea.  We were all in the mood for something new so Lucy suggested Corner 23.  She had bubble tea there the other day and said that it was pretty good.  Corner 23 is a new-ish Taiwanese eatery that […]

Review: Poking Some Fun at Po King

by gigi on July 8, 2008

I first went to Po King a while back when my grandparents introduced it to me.  It’s a relatively cheap Chinese restaurant that opened a few months ago and offered dim sum for $2.99 per dish.  As such, it’s pretty busy at lunch and it’s best to get there a bit before 12 (at least […]
