TOGETHER AT TO-GATHER CAFE

I have a ton of backlog entries pending but I'll interrupt my own scheduled programming to share with you guys my wonderful experience at To-gather Cafe in Bedok. It's too good not to blog right away! That isn't to say that the others aren't as good (they are!) but go through this entry and you'll understand why.


I first learned about To-gather Cafe when Miss Chocoholic posted her link on Singapore Eats. Shortly after that, my colleague mentioned this cafe to me because he knew how much I loved food. My colleague frequents this cafe with his kids because they absolutely adore the lava cakes so when my friend Jerni and I finally decided to meet up, this place popped to mind.


First things first, if you can, MAKE A RESERVATION. It was a Tuesday night yet it was full house. I tried to book a table but they said they were already fully booked and I could try to walk in instead. Lucky for me, I didn't have to wait that long but yes, there was a queue of roughly 15 people (and counting).

my new motto!
pretty much everything I ate, hahaha please read on for clarification :p

Atmosphere was really charming and cozy with a lot of quotable quotes lining up the walls (did you see my new motto above? hahaha!). You have to go to the cashier to order, and water and cutleries are self-service. But the food was good, the staff were friendly, and the prices were reasonable. :)

my "date" for the night, Cromly's Jerni Camposano

If my "date" looks familiar, it's because you've seen her on this blog before! We used to work together on shoots for The Philippine Star's Allure section in which she worked as an Editorial Assistant (which is most likely why you know her, haha!). I'm so glad we finally got to gather (pun intended) as this long overdue meet up has been 6 months in the making!

And now, on to the food!

Cream of Mushroom Soup

Hamburger Steak

Chicken Chop

The yummy yummy YUMMY Matcha Lava Cake. I am so in looooove!

Okay, so piggy story, after eating our mains, I asked Jerni what kind of lava cake we should order. She said chocolate and I replied somewhere along the lines of "okay good. I'll get both, you have the chocolate, I'll have the matcha." And she was like "whaaat?! that's too much!" Hahaha I don't regret that decision at all! The lava cakes were deeee-licious!


Oh and one more thing, her birthday is coming up in a couple of days and being someone who love love loves birthdays, I couldn't resist asking if they could write a simple happy birthday in the chocolate lava cake. To my utter delight, they responded positively and even asked if I wanted a candle. 


Of course I wanted a candle! :)) They took it a step further by playing the birthday song in the cafe's speaker system and had 3 of their staff come sing for Jerni. I felt like it was my birthday too! Hahaha! I love birthdays!!!!! :)

If it was me making a wish, I'd wish for all these mouthwatering lava cakes (without getting fat), hahaha

with the birthday girl
Happy happy birthday, Jerni!!! I hope all your wishes come true and that we may have more frequent catch up sessions. Cheers!

To-gather Cafe is located at 84 Bedok North Street 4, #01-25/27 Singapore 460084

With levelled up comfort food served in a warm and friendly atmosphere, it's easy to see why this cafe promotes "togetherness". Everything about it - the interiors, the staff, and the food - makes you want to come back and share that warm, fuzzy experience you've just had with those dearest to you. It's no surprise that they are packed, from families to groups of friends to reuniting amigas (that's us!), people wanted to be together with each other and with To-gather. There's still so much I want to try and so much people I want to bring, I will definitely be back!

DACHIE DAY AT GARDENS BY THE BAY



Hi guys! Here's a little photo diary of the afternoon I spent tagging along with my boyfriend and his mom at the Singapore Dachies' August 2014 gathering to hopefully perk up your Monday. It's gonna be cuteness overload below so prepare to "ooh" and "aah" at all the gorgeous doggies I met and if that isn't enough for you, you can also marvel at the sights we saw in Gardens by the Bay. :)





 
with the fairest of them all, Toffee ♥︎

Hope you enjoyed that little break from the Monday hustle. Cheers! Now go hug a doggie today, I guarantee it's a stress reliever. :)
