Sticky sweets! Smile Dec 19, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Australian / New Zealand

I was in town recently and while passing by Sticky's, i decided to get some of their signature colorful sweets (70g for $3.90)

 
The colours used by Stickys is often very colorful and vibrant. Very effective in attracting the younger crowd.

I love Pandas and so i squealed in delight when i saw these sweets. They have a panda face design which just looks so cute! Their sweets come in resealable bags so you need not worry about getting cavities when you have to pop these sugar-loaded treats at one sitting.

Gyoza Set Meals. Smile Nov 19, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese

The newest outlet by Keisuke Tokyo located at the corner of Orchid Hotel, a stone's throw from one of their other outlets.

 
This is a 18-seaters all-gyoza restaurant offers 3 different kinds of pan-fried dumplings to match with various side dishes, soup and rice as a set meal.

 
How to order:

STEP 1: Choose your Gyoza (5 pieces).

There are 3 different sets for selection:
Tonkotsu King Gyoza (Pork): Fine minced pork mixed with rich & thick tonkotsu broth to give it the excellent taste.
Tori King Gyoza (Chicken): Minced chicken mixed with rich chicken broth to nice and juicy feel.
Keisuke King Gyoza (Prawn): Minced prawn and pork mixed with strong flavor of crab stock to provide the excellent springy palatability.

 
STEP 2: Choose 2 side dishes

1. Chicken Nanban with Tartar Sauce.
2. Stir-fried Egg with Chinese Chives.
3. Stir-fried Pork and Cabbage with Miso.
4. Deep-fried Tofu with Minced Pork Gravy.
5. Deep-fried Chicken with Spicy Sauce and Mixed Sesame.
6. Stir-fried Egg with Tomatoes.
7. Stir-fried Eggplant (Brinjal) with Miso.
8. Deep-fried Potato with Minced Pork Gravy.

 
STEP 3: Choose the size of Koshihikari Rice and soup (Miso / Vegetable)

. Rice. Small, regualr, large and extra large at the same price.
. Soup. Vegetable and Miso.
. Marinated bean sprouts and cabbage pickles are available on the table for free.

 
Gyoza set is priced at $13.90 and a-la-carte order is $8.00 per set.

While queuing up, i completed the order chits. We selected the Tonkotsu King Gyoza (Pork) and Keisuke King Gyoza (Prawn). We opted for Chicken Nanban with Tartar Sauce, Stir-fried Pork and Cabbage with Miso, Deep-fried Chicken with Spicy Sauce & Mixed Sesame and Deep-fried Potato with Minced Pork Gravy. The size of rice is Regular and Large respectively and Miso Soup for both set.

Glasses of plain water were served immediately upon seated down and followed by Rice and Miso Soup.

 
The Koshihikari Rice served is the Japanese short-grain rice. Its texture has got a slight stickiness coupled with a desired softness. It tasted particularly good when using the Japanese Dry Seasoning available on the table to sprinkle over it.

The main ingredients of the Miso Soup were tofu and wakame. The wakame has got a likable sweet flavor with a slippery texture that complemented the smoothness of tofu. It tasted slightly salty with a distinctive miso taste.

 
The Gyoza served next. Both sets came at the same time. The lightly flavored filling was wrapped in a thinly rolled piece of wrapper. It was nicely pan-fried on one side to give a slight crispiness leaving the upper part with a steamed texture.

 
Tonkotsu King Gyoza (Pork). The lightly seasoned minced pork and the richness of thick tonkotsu broth was a pleasant combination.

 
It tasted good though not outstanding.

 
Keisuke King Gyoza (Prawn). The sweetness of the prawn complemented the light flavor of the minced meat and the intense flavor of the crab broth was a delightful surprise. This is a much prefer choice to the Tonkotsu King Gyoza.

 
All the dishes were prepared upon order and right in front of us in the open kitchen.

Chicken Nanban with Tartar Sauce. The chicken came in 2 pieces. It was nicely deep fried to give it the delightful crispiness and still succulent in texture. The Sauce tasted more like the Japanese Mayonnaise and not quite like the Tartar Sauce stated.

Stir-fried Pork and Cabbage with Miso. Slices of thinly sliced pork belly were stir-fried with cabbage as well as red and green pepper. It was a tasty dish though not too special.

Deep-fried Chicken with Spicy Sauce & Mixed Sesame. This is the nicest amongst all the side dishes. The 2 pieces of deep-fried chicken were mixed with Spicy Sauce then garnished with sesame. The Spicy Sauce did not taste too spicy and the taste was further enhanced by the bits of sesame seeds.

Deep-fried Potato with Minced Pork Gravy. The deep-fried potato pieces were then served with the Minced Pork Gravy. The taste of minced pork gravy was rather appetizing.

 
The service was friendly and attentive. We were greeted upon enter and leaving. It was an enjoyable lunch.

Red in Taiwan! Smile Nov 16, 2013

Categories : Taiwanese

I've been wanting to try out Lee's Taiwanese for a long awhile but couldn't find any chance because of the further locations but I finally got to try it this time when I visited Star Vista! 

The interior design was really Taiwanese night markets' inspired and even from the outside, the restaurant is so distinctive nobody can ever miss it!

The menu is also very Asian and reminds me of Chinese New Year.

Have ordered the Braised Minced Pork Rice ($10) and although the pork isn't what we can really consider as 'minced' but rather pork belly styled, it's kind of nice because it kind of portrays the higher quality ingredients. The dish also includes different kinds of vegetables, snow bean curd and braised egg. Give everything a good mix then eat in big mouthfuls, it's really good. However, I still personally feel that it should probably be priced around $6 instead.

Have also ordered the <b style="line-height: 1.6;">Iced Red Milk Tea ($4.80) and <b style="line-height: 1.6;">Iced Green Milk Tea ($4.80) and we were probably mistaken that there's no pearls in these, we later learned that the ones with pearls cost $5.80 each instead. Furthermore, it's kind of weird that both red and green ones tasted very similar and there's no distinctive difference which was disappointing.

Overall, although my main tasted great and I really love that kind of ambience the place provides, I might probably not visit again because everything are slightly overpriced. They do provide set meals below $20 but items are limited to what I want to try. But the place would be great for people with no budget limits though!
