Was at the media launch yesterday afternoon for TheShiokBook launch which is held at The Laneway Market.

TheShiokBook is a booklet (they have digital version too) of coupons of either 25% off total bill or 1 for 1. There are over 65 restaurants/bistros/cafes and over 100 coupons, they are valid till 31st June 2016. Head over to there website, click on ''The Flipbook'' and you will be able to view the whole booklet.

This is the list of merchants you can find in TheShiokBook.

There are many such discount/1-for-1 apps coming up, I personally feel the merchants for TheShiokBook is not too bad for the price of S$45, maybe 2 visits to cafes/restaurants is enough to cover your cost of the book.

Hoping to see more merchants in the next edition of course, humans are greedy :p

Apart from book, we were pampered with food!

Aburi smoked salmon, microgreens, citrus, pickled radish, smoked capsicums, garlic soy.

Quite a appetising dish with thinly big slices of smoked salmon.

Double Valrhona Chocolate Tart S$4.50

A pity my Christmasy looking tart is quite hard, and the crust isn't buttery enough for my liking.

Pistachio Honey Vanilla Cake S$6.50

Texture of the cake is pretty good, however the pistachio taste is not distinctive enough. It tasted more like lavender cake to me.

Raspberry Lemonade Cake S$6.50

This on the other hand is refreshing with a slight hint of sour, the combination of sweet and sour is just right.

Thank you TheShiokBook and The Laneway Market for having us! Saturday afternoon well spent!
