Thank you for your support!

Dear all,

During this short hiatus from food blogging, the sisters have been thinking a lot. When we started this blog 6 months ago, it brought us so much happiness and joy as we went around hunting for the best food in town. But as time goes by, we faced challenges, challenges that we never imagine before.

Sometimes we wondered,
Do we eat to blog or do we blog to eat?
What is the main purpose of the blog? Taking nice photos or the food?
Looking at food that had already turned cold, sometimes we can’t help but feel that there is no enjoyment in eating anymore.

It is not easy to maintain a blog, let alone a food blog.
Whether a blog is managed by one person or more, you will face the same challenge as we do. No doubt everybody started off with their passion for food. But blogging is not just about passion, it is about commitment.

To all the food bloggers-to-be or current floggers, do you have what it takes to keep it in the long run?
It takes lot of effort and time in maintaining a food blog. It may strain you financially or even physically. At some point of time, you may even find it strenuous to carry on.

I guessed many of you are curious. “Did something go wrong between the sisters?”
No. We are still the closest sisters ever. In fact, it was this blog that brought us closer than before. However, when one finds it a struggle to carry on with the blog, it is best to let it go and take a break. 

We thank each and everyone of you who stayed with us during our short flogging journey, and we certainly hope that you will continue rewarding your tastebuds with wonderful food like we do :)

Hiang Ji Roasted Meat & Noodle House - Nice dumplings!

A's sharp nose picked up the trailing scent of roasted meat and drew us to Hiang Ji along East Coast Rd. She simply can't resist roast duck, unlike J who has not been a duckie fan since young as she found the meat too tough.

We settled down in the little shop, waiting to be served. Without any hesitation, A ordered her Roast Duck Drumstick Noodle ($6) delightfully.

SF On Budget Part 2 - Scoopz Ice-cream!

Despite trying to save as much as we can, we still can't bear the thought of forgoing desserts totally. Where else to satisfy our sweet tooth, other than the ice-cream store we used to frequent so often back then during our secondary school days?

Scoopz had been around in Parkway Parade for many years and still standing strong. They have definitely won the hearts of both the old and young with their smooth, creamy handmade ice-cream. 


SF On Budget Part 1 - New World Mutton Soup

What happens when food bloggers are on tight budget?
Time for a switch to affordable and of course, delicious hawker food!

Apparently, SF had overspent this month and in need of some serious financial planning in December!

We stopped by Bedok Interchange Food Centre for a quick lunch before heading to Tampines Mall. Saw a couple of people enjoying bowls of piping hot mutton soup and we were enticed by the sweet aroma drifting from New World Mutton Soup.

1 Caramel - Food Bloggers' Sensual Sweet Indulgence

What does a food bloggers' outing mean? Food talk and camwhoring of course! Snap snap snap, munch munch munch, "How do you find the food so far?" "Which is your favourite among all?" Yea, this sums it all...

It is definitely enjoyable to meet fellow foodies where all of us have one thing in common, FOOD! And sampling cakes make the perfect outing for food bloggers because we do not have to worry about our food turning cold and we have ample time to capture our perfect shots, with the exception of baked souffle of course oops =P

Strawberry Shortcake ($8.90++)
Layers of fresh juicy strawberries, vanilla genoise and strawberry creme coated with puff pastry flakes baked to a golden brown perfection.

We love pancakes,
We simply love breakfast,

SF's Food Tasting @ Cafe Oliv

Boy were we glad that the torrential rain failed to dampen the spirits of those who had signed up for Sistafood's first food tasting session at Cafe Oliv.

Thanks to all who came despite the bad weather and distance. Sistafood's food tasting session finally kicked off on a Halloween night at 7.15pm in high anticipation and excitement. Whoosh here we go~!

Everything With Fries - Shoestring or Straight Cut?

Hidden at a quiet corner of Joo Chiat Road, Everything With Fries (EWF) has attracted much crowd since their opening about a month ago. We are frequent visitors of East Coast Road area but we only came to know of EWF's existence last saturday. Clean and slick white decoration stood out among other restaurants. Chirpy young service staffs certainly added vibrancy and cheerfulness to atmosphere.

As expected from its name, every main comes with fries. You can either choose shoestring (Mcdonalds) or straight cut (MOS Burger) fries. There are 5 different flavours available- namely the original, curry, salt & vinegar, sour cream & onion and garlic & herbs. Fries for you?!

Red Mango - J's No.1 Frozen Yogurt in Singapore~

The latest craze in Singapore is the blooming yoghurt chains within the tiny dot on the world map. Big names like "Yami Yogurt", "Yoguru", "Frolick", "Yogurt Place" etc have dominated the shopping malls. Yogurt is indeed ladies' best friend, as they are low fat and contain live probiotics which promote intestinal health, strengthens your immune system yada yada... (Food bloggers don't really care as long as its delicious and worth the calories right? :P) We are definitely not missing out on this yogurt craze, and having tried from the various yogurt chains, we are proud to announce that Red Mango has found its way to the first 2 spots in our hearts~

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar


"More than anything, I'm in love with chocolate
Chocolate is part of my childhood memories, reminding me of my Mom and Dad
Returning from trips abroad with a suitcase full of chocolates wrapped in cracking colourful paper.
It reminds me of Grandma, hiding chocolate candies in a tin box inside a big wooden cupboard.
It's part of my youth.
And it reminds me of Ana, my first love.
I'm mesmerized with the history of chocolate, and I'm entranced by the nostalgic stories around it, which carry me back to long gone romantic days.
Chocolate is passionate. It's sexy and prestigious, and I always start my morning by eating a tablet of milk chocolate with nuts.
I invite you to watch, smell and taste my love story."

Magnum by the sea...

Our minds are at ease, so relaxing and comfortable....
Taking a short break from the bustling city, a little getaway...
With the sun peeking through the dense clouds...
Feeling the cool breeze on our faces, it's such an enjoyment looking out at the vast sea...
Making us feel so insignificant and all problems seemed to have vanished momentarily...
What's even better is having MAGNUM by our side!

Checkers Deli - Happy Birthday Angeline!

Thai Express - Hate it or love it

Thai Cuisine is well-known for being hot and spicy and the ability to balance each dish with sweet, sour, spicy and salty flavours. For some, the flavoursome spicy food always get you hooked. People either love it or hate it. We can’t really say that we love spicy food but we just enjoy the thrill of hot sensation warming our stomachs.

Glory Catering - Hail to this victorious popiah queen~~

Recently, we started exploring other cuisines which we rarely try in the past. For today, we had decided on peranankan/malay food for lunch. Never did we expect to find a close competitor to our no. 1 Qi Ji popiah! Introducing the star of Glory Catering, Nyonya Popiah $2.20~

This must be the juiciest popiah we ever had, we were literally sucking on the popiah, no kidding! The sweet sauce was extremely delectable and immediately got us on sugar high! Don't get us wrong, it's not overly sweet, still the usual popiah sweetness =P Even without our must-have crispy fish bits, this popiah won our hearts over with the moist turnips, carrots, omelette and prawn, well soaked in the essence of the sweet sauce and tightly wrapped inside the slightly chewy but thin popiah skin (even though its still thicker than Qi Ji's). Only grouse would be that the prawn was not fresh and crunchy. But still, thumbs up to this popiah!

We couldn't discern a clear winner between Qi Ji's popiah and Glory's popiah on this day. However, it was evidently clear to us that Glory emerged victory when we went back for our Qi Ji popiah fix 2 days later. Never did we once feel that our no. 1 popiah will taste this ordinary. Guess our expectations for popiah had been raised once again. We missed the juicy sweet popiah from Glory. Enough said :)

A & J's ratings: 4.75/5

Keroma Chicken ($5)
The keroma chicken was unexpectedly delicious. Tender pink flesh which almost made us went "CuckooOoo". Alright, that was a little exaggerating but we love eating it with the curry and rice.

A & J's ratings: 4/5

Beef Rendang (Front), Mutton Rendang (Top left), $3 per piece
Beef and mutton rendangs were huge disappointments. Meat were tough and hard to chew. Even the spices used could not mask the strong mutton smell.

A & J's rating: 3/5

We realized that actually not many people enjoy eating lady finger because there's this sticky thing oozing out once it was cooked. But we love its crunchiness and this dish here was definitely a hit for us too. Even thought that it tasted better than the one we had from Punggol Nasi Lemak. Sinking our teeth into them immediately squashed and spurted their tiny seeds into our mouths, very shiok indeed!

A & J's rating: 4/5

While the rendangs were a disappointment for us, we will definitely return to Glory Catering again for their popiahs. And next time round, no sharing! One for us each, then end the meal with our lovely brownie from Cafe Oliv =P

Gurkha Palace Restaurant - Satisfying Indian Cuisine!

This week, for no reason, we decided to go "Indiana"! There we were, strolling down the streets at Little India, we found our small palace located right at Chander road. Ghurka Palace Restaurant caught our attention as they serve authentic Nepalese and Northern Indian food. We never had Nepalese cuisine before and hence we decided to try it out! Sitting in the "palace" made us feel homely and cosy.
We were indeed just like Queens to be served.
*We were the only customers in the restaurant then. Haha*

Complimentary Papadum with Mint sauce was served swiftly after we placed our order.
The mint sauce was really refreshing and good! It went pretty well with the keropok. Salty, sweet and minty.
A unique taste indeed!


Chapati, $1.50
For only $1.50, you get 2 large pieces of chapati! The soft chewy texture goes very well with the butter chicken. However, our jaws were aching from chewing the chapati as we left it to the last.


J's & A's rating: 3.5/5

Cheese Naan, $3.50
The cheese naan here tasted like plain naan. We couldn't detect the taste of cheese, only a thin layer was spread onto the naan which added slight saltiness to it. However, we do love the softness and crispiness of the naan.

Cheese Naan

A's rating: 3.5/5, J's rating: 3/5

Kukhura Makhani (Butter Chicken), $8
We ordered this dish as it was highly recommended by the waiter. Kukhura Makhani is actually chicken marinated with Nepalese herbs, tender cooked and serve with creamy butter gravy. The creamy and tangy gravy reminded us of japanese curry except that it was non-spicy. The gravy infused with herbs and spices was very addictive! We kept dipping our naans and chapti into it. Besides, the chicken morsels were very tender and succulent!

*The butter here refers to 'malai' or cream*

J: I can't really taste the butter from the sauce. The 1st mouthful actually turned me off as I felt it was too salty for my palate. However, I eventually found it to be a better dip than Daal Makhani! Perhaps due to the thicker gravy used in Kukhura Makhani, the full-bodied taste left a lingering aroma in my mouth, which made Daal Makhani taste more bland after a while.


J's & A's rating: 4.25/5

They gave generous amount of chicken morsels! So much that we actually ordered additional garlic naan later on to go with the gravy dip.

Butter Chicken

Garlic Naan, $2
The garlic naan was much better than the cheese naan. Intense garlic flavour was so satisfying that we can almost keep zombies at bay lol. It tasted exceptionally palatable when eaten hot!

Garlic Naan

A & J's rating: 4.25/5

Our way of eating: Tear off a small portion of the naan and wrap with it around the chicken morsel. Yummy!


Daal Makhani, $5
Daal Makhani is a delicacy from Punjab in India. This thick stew was prepared using black lentils and red kidney beans which were cooked and simmered for hours. This savoury stew has a slight sweetness with a minty flavour. It was a great match with the naans, and even on its own. Love the beany bites! Perhaps due to addition of the various spices, for the 1st time we could actually accept the Makhani even though they added lots of disgusting coriander leaves!

Daal Makhani

A's rating: 4.25/5, J's rating: 4/5

Dinner at Gurkha was pleasant. The service here was attentive and fast. Food were served promptly. In addition, the waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave excellent recommendations and took effort to explain each dish to us. Kudos to him!

Besides, Gurkha already have their groups of loyal customers. We could hear many regulars saying
"We are back again!"
We've yet to try out the butter chicken and daal from other restaurant. The rating given is based on our first impression of the dishes. But in general, we must say the food here is really reasonable and delicious!
