Original Farmers Market to try out new restaurants, so we ended up at Singapore's Banana Leaf. There was this family that ordered all these dishes from there that looked amazing, so my brother and I decided this was the place. We both ordered the Mee Goreng w/ Chicken Skewers and Fried Egg, which happened to be pretty good. I cracked open the egg yolk that way the yolk would get all over the noodles. The chicken skewers were so tender and tasted even better when dipped in the mildly spicy peanut sauce. I really recommend trying the Mangosteen Juice, which has this creamy, almost floral taste to it.
Normandie Bakery. The Apricot Tart was intensely creamy and cutard-y, while the lemon tart was wonderfully sour. The only thing I would've fixed with the lemon tart is change the chocolate pastry surrounding it to a buttery pastry, since the chocolate one left a bitter aftertaste. However, my dad thought it helped balance out the sourness of the lemon curd, so maybe I'm just crazy.
Petersen Automotive Museum, since my brother and him are really into cars. One of the most interesting cars there was this airomobile, which was from the 1930s. With its streamlined design, it could reach up to 80mph and 43 mpg. Truth be told, I kind of want one of these that way I can paint it to look like a humpback whale, while saving gas. It's a win-win. The Petersen Automotive Museum is really fascinating, even for someone like me who gets bored at car dealers. It showcases cars ranging from 1897 onwards plus various cars from big movies like Batman and Gangster Squad. One of the best sections in the museum was one on Italian design. Literally every car was beyond perfection and I hope to see my car there one day.
