Two weeks ago, we ventured down the street to Pearl's little sister, of more relaxed dining, Cafe Pearl for a satisfying lunch. Once again, mouth-watering dishes braced the menu - we had to restrain ourselves from ordering every one of them! Freshly squeezed juice is on offer all day (apple for me!), and the breakfast menu is available until 11am. Next time, I would love to try the "Golden Chinese Roast Duck Broth with Egg Noodles and Bok Choi."

Heirloom Tomato Pizza with Buffalo Milk Mozzarella, Rocket Salad

Rare Thai Beef Salad with Tomatoes, Rocket, Thai Basil, Hot Mint, Chilli and Lime and Spearmint Nam Jim - absolutely scrumptious! So refreshing and aromatic with a subtle hint of chilli.

Valrhona Chocolate Crackle - a challenge to eat, because it was so hard from being chilled and bits kept falling off with every bite!

Affogato - Pearl's coffee is from Gravity and it's their Six Degrees Darker blend: "smooth, rich, creamy and luscious with chocolate notes"
