“A little daily makes a difference. A little difference makes your day.”
Inspired by how a pescetarian diet (a healthy diet that consists of fish and no other animal meats) has benefited them and their loved ones, Christina and her husband Xing, took the first step to start Dann’s Daily Pescetarian Cafe, named after their son, Dann. The philosophy at Dann’s Daily is to provide an experience that is beneficial to customers. Their inspiration is driven by simple ingredients, fuss-free cooking with care and passion. Ingredients are of the finest quality, nothing more, and nothing less. I really must salute Christina for coming up with all these delicious and healthy dishes!
Light and wholesome, the Triangle Toasties are bound to impress. Organic wholemeal bread was lightly toasted, resulting in a nice crusty texture. Tuna with lettuce? Yes. But tuna with avocado? The Tuna Avocado ($4.50) sure was a nice change from the tuna with lettuce that my mum usually prepares for breakfast. The slices of avocado had a very smooth and creamy texture. Apart from this, Chewy Charles and I also enjoyed eating the Otah Japanese Cucumber ($5) very much. The winning combination of fresh and chunky Mackerel, together with slices of crunch Japanese cucumber is highly recommended.
A Set Meal at Dann’s Daily comes with Organic Brown & Wild Rice with Sprouts and Curry of the Day ($10). The rice grains were very solid and had a very nice bite to it, unlike white rice which is sticky and starchy. Curry of the Day was Vegetable & Tofu Curry. Other than tofu, there was also tao pok, tao kee and diced carrots. The curry was watery but it had none of those oiliness. I didn’t feel guilty dribbling some of that curry onto my rice :P
Chewy Charles and I were a little puzzled at the color of the Fish Soup ($8). If milk was not added, we would be expecting a clear broth. Xing came up with this recipe and told us that the stock was made using vegetables and was left to simmer overnight. That explains the the color of the soup. You can have my word that the broth was very rich and full-bodied. Just one sip of this fish soup can bring the dead back to life. Haha.
Moving on, it was time for desserts! Dann’s Daily showed us that it is possible to still be able to enjoy sweet treats while eating healthily at the same time. Nothing can go wrong when you pair chocolate with banana. The moist and dense Banana Steamed Cupcake ($3) was drizzled with delicious chocolate sauce. Surprisingly, it was not overly sweet.
The Gula Melaka Steamed Cupcake ($3) would be a good alternative if you prefer something lighter. Not as moist and dense as the banana cupcake, this on the other hand was stickier and chewier. No fret, there’s really something to keep everyone happy :)
Do you heart Latte ($4)? Hehe :P Alkaline water had been used to make this cup of latte that was rich and frothy.
What in the world is a Teeccino you ask? A first in Singapore, the Teeccino is a great caffeine-free alternative to coffee. Dann’s Daily is the only café in Singapore offering this. Teeccino boasts of a rich full-bodied, complex flavour that is slightly sweet and nutty from dates, figs and almonds. A guaranteed hit with coffee fans and non-coffee fans alike. I was lucky enough to try the Teeccino Mocha Latte ($5). Although I couldn’t quite put a word to how it exactly tasted like after my first sip, the subsequent sips had a nutty fragrance.
For something refreshing on a hot and humid day, the Pear Calamansi ($6.50) is a lifesaver! No sugar is added into this natural fruit juice. A special juicer is used at Dann’s Daily and you get a high concentration of pulp in your fruit juice!
Here’s a lovely photo of Christina and Xing, together with Dann. Thank you for the invitation and for sharing your knowledge about healthy eating with us!
