Grub at Bishan Park Part 2 – Food Review

After we sent Al for her tuition this morning, we headed to Grub again, this time for weekend brunch!

We reached early at about 835am, Grub opens at 9am. We took a leisurely walk around.

I’ve been exercising regularly for about 2-3 months now, so I was glad to perspire a bit while walking under the morning sun. Hehe.

Entertaining myself while hubby ranted about some stuff lol.

Ten minutes before 9am, we parked ourselves right in front of Grub haha.

Their Q system. Register with them, go for a walk, then they will call u when you got a table!

We sat inside at the aircon area in a nice corner. Hubby ordered Grub breakfast set with additional carameliZed onions while I ordered roasted portobello with tomato salsa and rocket salad πŸ™‚ (Note: I’m starting to follow the Paleo diet!)

Here’s my portobello!

The other angle showing a better picture of the tomato salsa – it’s not filling at all, but ideal for me cos I don’t wanna be too full πŸ™‚

Hubby’s Grub breakfast set!

The other angle – he has a portobello too, with a beef sausage, scrambled eggs, focaccia bread, salad etc. Don’t think he was very full either lol.

Bill was $31.70, I think price leans towards the high side as portions weren’t great. But love their service and the local smiley staff!

And I’ve managed to hit 58.1kg this morning πŸ˜€

Grub at Bishan Park – Food Review

When I jogged through Bishan Park two nights ago, I passed through this restaurant called Grub. I’ve heard of it before but didn’t know that it’s so near my place!!

So we went there for an early dinner just now. They open at 530pm for dinner and we reached there at 530pm.

It was nearly full already!! 0_0

We got an alfresco table cos its 4 of us with a baby chair (inside area quite small, couldn’t really fit parties more than 4). Thankfully it was quite breezy with a few ceiling fans and the cool weather helped too.

My mum ordered crispy fish burger, hubby ordered steak & fries, I got risotto for Al and myself, tomato rocket salad and truffled egg cocotte (both appetizers with minimal carbo).

My mum’s crispy fish burger. Looks good eh?

20131102-184857.jpg
My tomato rocket salad – which is really quite good!! They add feta cheese and pine nuts in too.

Truffled egg cocotte – it’s poached eggs with truffle oil and some bacon – it’s heavenly for those who love soft boiled eggs!! Al shared it with me as she loved runny eggs πŸ™‚

20131102-185202.jpg
Hubby’s steak & fries – he has super high standards for steaks and he said it was normal – to me it means good liao πŸ˜‰

The staff are very friendly and polite too – and most of the staff are locals which is such a big plus to me πŸ™‚ the overall experience is a great one – only downside was that hubby got a mosquito bite lol.

Will definitely go back again πŸ™‚ now on the way to expo – both Al and Am KO-ed already haha.

Hazy? Foggy?

20131102-075446.jpg
Crisp chilly Saturday morning – I hope what I see is FOG and not HAZE. No smell of haze though πŸ™‚

Happy Saturday everyone!! I’m feeling good after the dose of Sambucol last night! I’m thinking of where to go for lunch and dinner today.. Wondering if I should visit Grub which is just a bus stop away my place?

Their menu is rather limited, but good enough, given that they are so near πŸ˜‰ wonder if it’ll be crowded? According to their website, they don’t accept reservations. Maybe we will go for dinner at 530pm when they open – like that sure got seat bah?

Despicable Me 2 DVD is finally available for sale and it comes with a set of stickers and this cute soft toy minion Dave haha! So cute leh! Hubby bought it and both Al and him have watched it last night. Maybe I’ll watch tomorrow night πŸ™‚

I finally saw some loss this morning.. Keeping it up!!

But if I go grub later….?

My first run

20131031-232846.jpg
Looking ready to run!

I think I did quite well for a first timer in running. I did not run the whole 2km.. I half ran half walked. I’m actually proud of myself cos I think I ran half the journey!!

I started running at 10pm from my place. Cut through bishan park and then to ang mo kio central. Reached my destination at 1020pm. Yay!

Actually I met up with belle to pass her something. We chatted for about an hour (lol) and then decided I better go back haha. It’s too late (dangerous) to jog.. So I’m on the bus home.

Was thinking if I should jog at this time on a regular basis. Even though bishan park is well lit, it’s really quite quiet at this time of the day.. Was quite empty when I cut thru it just now, save for a couple of cyclists and runners. But it’s the only time i am free to jog after I make Am sleep. Haiz.

Oh well.. Let’s see how things work out. Maybe I can start jogging on weekends first!
