Food Review : Food for Thought (National Museum of Singapore)

Last week was the bf’s bday and we decided to take a day off from work to enjoy the day with each other ๐Ÿ™‚

We had brunch at Food for Thought at the National Museum of Singapore. Okay, it wasn’t exactly brunch timing, more like a super late lunch period…

We actually thought of other places to dine in but settled with FFT.

These were what we ordered :

I was kinda disappointed that they didn’t have eggs benny so I’d settled with this instead. I really loved the fried potato balls because they were so crispy and yummy! Sauteed mushrooms were good too and so was the scrambled eggs. But I guess both of us were too hungry till we became full. You know that kind of feeling? And I felt so guilty when I saw a Caucasian lady (bigger size than me of course) ordered the classic set (bread with scrambled eggs only but the scrambled eggs was like quite alot too anyway) for the all day breakfast whereas greedy me ordered the biggest full set. -.-”

Of course I struggled and struggled like mad. Actually, both of us struggled to finish whatever we could.

Oh yes, I didn’t really like the bacon because it was filled with fats! Like lotsa of them! It’s like 99.9999% were fats instead of meat. I know bacon contains fats but this has got to be the fattiest bacon I’ve ever seen!

For all of you who do not know, I’m trying to eat healthier now (besides of course for weight loss/fat loss purposes), I finished all the yucky veggies. I said it’s yucky because unless you’re ok with the raw veggie salad taste, you wouldn’t like it. So nowadays, whenever there’s veggies, I would force myself to eat them and of course, have bf’s share too. He doesn’t like them anyway.

Another thing is, the tomatoes served were quite disappointing. They were quite over-riped and mashy. ๐Ÿ™ Anyone would prefer crunchy tomatoes anytime anywhere!

I didn’t finish the bread (as usual) because I was really exploding.

This was what bf ordered :

The portion is really huge. My jaw literally dropped when I saw how huge the curry chicken cutlet was! Which you can’t really see from this picture. And because it was too ‘breaded-ly crusted’, it was a little jerlat for bf to have the below side dish of fish fingers as well. We didn’t know it was gonna be crusted in bread crumbs. ๐Ÿ™

This fish finger side dish was a waste of money.

Firstly, we were already struggling with our own mains.

Secondly, as per above, it was crusted in bread crumbs as well.

Thirdly, it was $6 for 3 pathetic pieces! That’s like $2 for 1 piece?!

ARGH.

Mocha has got to be my all-time favourite coffee when I’m out at cafes. Unless I’m really in need of strong caffeine to keep me awake for whatever reason, I would then order black coffee. I prefer iced ones of course, but the ah pek bf loves his drinks to be hot.

My iced mocha was a little disappointment as well.

Firstly, I’d expected a sweeter version since mocha is a mixture of coffee and chocolate? It was quite bitter, should have perhaps asked for some sugar syrup ๐Ÿ™

Secondly, I’d only managed to finished half of it? And pushed myself a little further and finished approx 3/5 of it. LOL. I guess I’ve only got to blame myself for this. Ordered waaaayyy too much or either that, was too hungry till the appetite was gone. ๐Ÿ™

Bf’s hot mocha.

But one thing’s good about this FFT outlet at the National Museum is that the food was served quite quickly after ordering! So if you’re starving, like we were initially, this would be good! ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course, I can’t guarantee that it would be the same for peak hours since we went on a weekday on a non-peak hour.

Spent about $60 for this meal alone.

After stuffing ourselves, we caught the Internship like finally and bf had to attend a school orientation so we couldn’t have a bday dinner celebration ๐Ÿ™

But nevertheless, we managed to save it for Friday last week! ๐Ÿ™‚

More to come so stay tuned ๐Ÿ™‚

*psst, am also planning to hold another beauty giveaway soon, what do you guys suggest? ๐Ÿ™‚

*ps, sincere apologies to those who received their gifts late! ๐Ÿ™
