Le Bistrot

Umami was the one who first brought Le Bistrot to my attention. But before I had a chance to try it while it was still at Katong, the restaurant moved to a more central location, at Stadium Walk.

The restaurant popped to mind when a girlfriend and I wanted to get-together to celebrate our birthdays while yet also trying to maintain a budget. Because I remembered Umami's comment on the "solid unpretentious food at affordable prices", I proposed to the girlfriend that we give Le Bistrot a shot.

Indeed, we were not disappointed. We felt right at home once we stepped into the restaurant. It was classy with a casual touch. Tables were sufficiently spaced without me having to listen to someone's life story and the whole time we were there on a Friday night, the floor was packed. Amazingly the wait staff remained efficient, attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and if I had anything to complain, it was the huge portions - I struggled to finish my food.

We started off nibbling on slices of 2 types of hearty European bread before our entrees arrived. When I saw the daily special was grilled goat's cheese, I did not have to think twice about having it. It was just as expected but delicious all the same. It did come as a shock to see such a huge log of cheese though.


It was a coincidence that I chose to have the daily special for my main course as well. It was another simple dish - pan fried salmon fillet with a herb butter sauce. The fish was fresh and done very well such that the salmon was just barely cooked and had soft, soft innards.


The icing on the cake, for me at least, was when Amy, our waitress, brought out the dessert, with 2 lit candles. Without any privvy information, she managed to pick up hints of a birthday celebration and took the liberty of adding the candles. I was genuinely surprised and happy. As it turned out, Amy overheard me say "happy birthday" when I passed my gift (of homemade macademia & white chocolate cookies) to the girlfriend early on. I appreciated the thoughtfulness and it is a heart-warming, personable gesture like this that makes me want to return :) Thank you Amy!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
