Ahem.. Have I ever mentioned that July is my favorite month? :P My birthday! And this year, we had other awesome events like our One Year Anniversary & BB Chew’s Convocation which also took place in July! Anyway, I left Mr Chew to plan the itinerary! So lunch it was at OChre Italian Restaurant which is located on the 11th level of Orchard Central. Look at this cute little reservation card! It made us smile :) Shucks, we forgot to bring it back as a form of keepsake. Oh well! :)
OChre Italian Restaurant has a very lovely and intimate ambience that makes you feel at ease with its open kitchen concept where you can watch the chefs if you’re seated indoors. We passed by the place a couple of times earlier this year but we never went in. We prefer simplicity on usual days. Hehe. Ochre was kinda empty on a Saturday afternoon. Less than half the place was filled.
How many of you out there are currently dating a food blogger? Haha is it really stressful when it comes to special occasions when you’re the one who’s doing the planning? The boy confessed that he spent an entire day doing his research at home and had a few back up plans before finally settling on OChre! We were both in for a pleasant surprise upon finding out that there’s this Eat-All-You-Can Pizza & Pasta (selected items only) at just $22+ (yup only one + because there’s no service charge!) per person on Saturdays during lunch from 11.30am to 3pm ! :D :D :D Now you know where to go this Saturday, don’t you? ;)
Thanks BB Chew for my very first birthday present of the day! A plate of pasta! Hahaha! XD
Nicely infused with flavors from the sea, the seafood linguine in white wine sauce had a nice, firm bite to it and was well executed. If my memory doesn’t fail me, I think it was my first time eating pasta with red chilli slices? Yup but it doesn’t matter. I licked my plate clean. The portion is just right to make one feel satiated.
Now, THIS is my biggest birthday present! Haha kidding! No wait, I’m darn serious. And that’s the cute and handsome Executive Chef Kentaro standing in the background. Haha Mr Chew is going to kill me!
I say, tagliatelle is like the equivalent of our chinese meepok ta and I’m always very amused when I see one. Tomato cream sauce is perfect for people who simply cannot decide between a tomato based and cream based pasta. It’s actually quite nice because the tomato flavor wasn’t that intense. Mussels were fresh and bouncy! Boing boing! :P
What did I say about eat-all-you-can? Ok la we weren’t that hungry so we had just one more pizza to share! :)
Enough of seafood! Besides, we have this tendency to pick seafood pizzas over everything else. We wanted change! Chewy Charles suggested having the mushrooms pizza and I didn’t have any objections. The pizza definitely did not come out of the wood fire oven but it was decent nonetheless. Biscuity thin crust and the mozzarella cheese were heavenly! Can’t say much about the mushrooms though.
Thanks for the birthday lunch treat BB Chew! Now I must think of how to celebrate your birthday. After our solemnization of course! :D
We took the stairs and went up to the rooftop! Nice place to take pictures :)
My very awesome Mummy got me this LV Damier Azur Canvas in cream color! She bought this about a month back and it’s my first time carrying it :D
The boy is still crazy about doing levitation shots! -___-
I know there’s this change face game on some Taiwanese gameshow. Can’t really recall but here goes! My very own missuschewy version! :P
Spotted this exhibition thingy by students from Republic Polytechnic while walking towards Plaza Singapura. Very cute mascots!
BB Chew promised a MAGICAL birthday celebration and he was being really cheeky because he booked tickets to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in 3D! So confirm got magic. Ahlamak! Ok lor, at least I finally got to watch it after so long! :D
