Wine and Dine

When we were in the US, our friends brought us to Door County, Wisconsin. It's full of B&Bs and some outdoor activities. There were some shops where you can try/taste some of the stuffs they're selling. These includes cheese, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cherry preserves and wine. We tried all except the wine tasting. I bought some of the cherry salsa... they were yummy! Hubby's now so addicted to it, he's eating chips everyday since we got back.

Speaking of wine, Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel here in Singapore is having a wine and dine gala event called the The Grand Mercure Roxy Wine and Dine, Gala Event. There will be food and wine served during the event. To tease your tastebuds, some of the food that will be served during the event includes

Jia Wei Deluxe Combination
A perfect way to begin your exquisite culinary experience, this Jia Wei Chinese Restaurant signature is an appetising and colourful dish of bite-sized lobster paste roll, smoked duck, seafood dumpling, wasabi prawn and marinated octopus.

Steamed Cod Fish with Special Sauce
Steamed to perfection while retaining its texture and original flavour, the cod fish – specially flown-in from Norway – is bathed in an appetising special sauce made from a variety of vegetables.

On the other hand, some of the wine collections includes
FAMILLE CASTEL, Sauvignon Blanc from Gascogne, France
Fresh and liveky with green highlights and aromas of tomato leaf, aspargus, exotic fruit and lychee. Ideal for drinking on its own or with grilled fish and shellfish.
BASCAND, Pinot Noir from Waipara, New Zealand
Bright berry fruits overlay a complexity derived from old aged vines and intelligent use of oak. Deep, boldly- colored with a big plum and vanilla aromas.

If you're in Singapore and you're planning to stay in a hotel soon, complete The Grand Mercure Roxy Survey and you can book a weekend special accommodation package at Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel. Readers will also be automatically entering a lucky draw to win a weekend staycation at Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel with 3 dining vouchers at the award-winning Chinese restaurant, Jia Wei.

US Food Trip: Phoebe's Cupcakes

Before leaving for our trip to the US (read previous post Back from Vacation), I included Phoebe's Cupcakes in our Chicago itinerary. Just found out about it from Cupcakes Take the Cake from the blog's list of cupcakes.

We went to the shop on our second day in Chicago. Lloyd and I bought a cup of coffee and the Death By Chocolate cupcake - Chocolate Cake with a Fudgy Chocolate Frosting. Rommel & Alina bought the Tuxedo cupcake - Vanilla Cake topped with Chocolate Sugar Cream (sorry no picture of the Tuxedo... I thought I had one though). The Death by Chocolate is to die for. Chocolate lovers will love it. The Tuxedo's yummy too.

Death by Chocolate

Their flavors change every week. Their flavors for this week: Pumpkin Pie and Apple Crunch Cake. Did I mention they also sell dog treats?

How I wish I'm not that far away from Chicago.

Back from Vacation

After three long weeks I'm finally back! Hubby and I went on a three-week vacation in the US and just got back last Saturday.

Before hubby and I left Singapore for our vacation, I did my research: check for restaurants, fast food, bakeries, etc. from other blogs/websites.

I'll be posting some of our food escapades during our trip... not in a chronological order. Whichever picture I'll see/edit first will be posted. :)

FYI I am not a food critic, and I won't be posting reviews or whatever. Just some photos and the food/drinks I've tried.

So keep visiting to check on updates. :)
