The Clef Cafe is so homely, and the staff are so friendly and welcoming it actually makes lunch an immensely enjoyable experience. This was the minced mushroom noodles - the sauce matched the chewy, thin noodles so well! The prices are really affordable, do drop by if you haven’t been there.
A new vegetarian cafe at the West, and it’s rather close to NTU too! The Clef Cafe at Nanyang CC labels their vegan options. We got the duck congee ($4.80), mushroom soup ($5.80) and the chicken cutlet rice ($5.80 - not vegan). The duck congee makes use of mushrooms instead of mock meat, and the flavour reminded me of the duck noodles I used to eat years ago. The mushroom soup was rich and intense - kinda felt like mushroom essence haha. The chicken cutlet is really delicious too, if you’re not vegan!
made a rare trip to the east and happened upon Grove, so I ate the signature truffle noodles ($8.80) and dad got the tomato noodles ($6.80). The crispy spicy monkeyhead mushrooms on skewers are also a must-try (not pictured). I normally dislike truffles, but this was one of the most amazing noodle dishes I’ve ever had. Somehow the noodles and the truffle oil just went really well together. Grove, come to the west and take my money 💸
It’s the best time in our homeschool! We ditch our regular Curriculum and focus on family, faith and the season in front of us. This year we are using the Notgrass curriculum that we love so much again! We have yet to find anything that remotely comes close to how amazing these are. We are also adding in a Unit Study on “A Christmas Carol” and can’t wait to get started. One of the best things about homeschooling for all these years is being able to decide what we study and when. I’m so thankful for having this choice!! #homeschoolingrocks#homeschool#notgrass#besttimeoftheyear
Today’s dinner at Jurong West Hawker Centre! Got this kway chap for $3.50 from Zi Ran Vegetarian (for the daily menu, swipe to the 3rd pic), vegetarian rojak for $2+ and bubur pulut hitam (not pictured) for $1.60. The kway chap was pretty decent, with almost no mock meat. I liked the fried, crispy bits in the gravy. Remember to ask for no egg!
So two things.....
1. Its is 2:47pm and Memphis is still not done with his work and his Notgrass history/literature is still sitting on the table. He on the other hand is playing with Legos. He is going to be awfully sad when he finds out that EVERYTHING will be done before he goes to sleep or I am stealing all of his Halloween candy tomorrow.
2. Sawyer is doing rather well with his cursive. Although, he has asked when he can stop. I then stated when he starts writing everything in cursive. He then asks me what happens if he doesn’t. I let him know that handwriting without tears has a crap ton of cursive lessons books and I am sure when we are done with those I can then start on Abekas or maybe even BJU’s. 🤣 I am SO mean.
chicken rice at Chinatown, from Pu Xiang Vegetarian stall. No chicken rice can beat the one at Ang Mo Kio of course, but this was pretty decent too. (I’m not a fan of mock meat though...) Also reminder to self to bring my own cutlery 👀
hor fun for $2.80 at Koufu @ South Spine, NTU. I'm alternating between bringing home cooked food to school/eating at the vegetarian stall at koufu. Also today in class the subject of veganism came up, and I heard remarks about how hard it is to be vegan. Obviously there are drawbacks, like the lack of choices at certain places, having to check ingredients at the supermarket, but it really does get easier when one gets used to it.
