Who let the dogs out

Entering Doggiestyle Cafe, you’d note that the door can only be opened by you. The people-only door ensures pets are allowed to roam freely and are not able to escape from the cafe.

Allowing your dog to mingle with others in a small enclosed environment can be very nerve-wrecking for a first-time dog owner. But getting over this fear can be rewarding as it allows your dog the opportunity to make friends with others. My heart melted a little when I saw Sweetie, my little English bulldog, play with the two resident French bulldogs, Tofu and Pickles.

We ordered dinner for ourselves and cupcakes for the dogs. Pet food came in cardboard boxes so that pets can gobble up to their hearts’ content without making too much of a mess.

What makes this cafe different from other pet-friendly cafes:
– there is a pee pad and water fountain at the side of the cafe
– grooming & dog sitting services are available
– there are other food options for pets from food to custom made cake

… and you can eat in peace and be sure no one will be giving you weird or angry stares when your dogs run havoc around! 😉

A bit of everything

International buffets are usually a hit-or-miss for me because different cuisines don’t really go well with each other. Thus I didn’t have high expectations when we went to Todai in late November. The place was packed when we arrived, and we were really lucky to be offered a private room for the five of us.

My first instinct was to go for the rows of sushi that caught my eye when we were walking in. The california rolls and sashimi were great! I could just fill up on them and be happy without venturing into the other sections.

But I headed over to the roast counter after my first plate. Everyone was raving about the roast beef and I had to try it. I paired the roast beef with some cold cut meat and broccoli before grabbing an oyster to try too. Then came more roast beef and potato gratin that will remind you why you can’t live without carbs.Everything was well replenished all the time except for the chilli crabs where there was always a queue. I was in my lil happy bubble eating a year’s worth of cheesy prawns and scallops that I didn’t even consider about the crabs which were limited to 2 pieces per pax.It is a pity that the dessert section was very forgettable, or I wouldn’t mind going back again in a few month’s time.

Todai
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Avenue, #b2-01, Singapore 018972
Lunch buffets start from $42++ & dinner buffets start from $54++

PS: Todai was in the news recently because of a food poisoning incident. I think it’s probably a one off-thing as we had a lot of raw food that day and we were fine.

Fun in the sun

These instagram photos are telling us to make full use of the endless summer days here in Singapore, so have some fun in the sun!

My checklist includes:
– chill out at the pier with a good cup of latte
– cycle to an old school kopitiam for breakfast
– potlucks, picnics and barbecues with homemade lemonades and frozen magaritas
– take up a course on kayaking, wakeboarding, surfing (wavehouse) or windsurfing
– rent the different types by bicycles, skates etc at east coast park
– weekend trip to Nikoi Island at Bintan
