Sacha & Sons

Sacha & Sons is Singapore's first New York Delicatessen located in Mandarin Gallery. They offer hand rolled bagels, house cured and smoked pastrami and house cured pickles.

Being one of the new additions in town (based on this link on Burpple), we chose to try out this restaurant for a gathering with my ex colleagues and also thinking it will be more spacious (cos of the boss's stroller) and it accepts reservation. It does has space to put our stroller, but only for those two large tables which are a step up and through a small opening. We have to carry out the boss, keep the stroller, go up the step and open it back. The other smaller tables are just too cramp to place a stroller.

After much deliberation, here's what are mine and the hubs' orders. The others had beef. 

Toasted Bagel with Smoked Salmon and Caramelised Onions Scrambled Egg [S$18.00++]
I like how the scrambled egg with smoked salmon and caramelised onions taste. Really delicious. But the bagel, I'm not too sure whether it's because it had gotten cold (It was left awhile as I was away to nurse my boss) or it is as it is, HARD. The sandwiches the other had were hard too. 

Chicken Schnitzel w Mustard and Coleslaw [S$16.00++]
The chicken is pretty normal for me though. The hubs likes the pickles. The sandwich, as the bagel is, was hard. Too hard to cut through with fork and knife. 

Located on level 3 of Mandarin Gallery, next to the escalator. There are loads of waiting seats outside. Long waiting queue eh? 

Menu on the board. Oh. Ordering and payment is made at the counter. And plain water is served only after we moved our butts to the counter. Haha cos we were all seated down and waiting for all to come. Then we were thinking, why no service for water?

The reservation was made via Chope online. And they have the tablet queuing system at the main entrance. Guess this system is more frequently seen at restaurants nowadays. 

Generally, this will be my only trip there, unless friends specifically request to come here. The hard bread is quite a turn off for me. Our jaws were very overworked.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
