I'm no expert on Fish Head Bee Hoon, as it's not one of my usual hawker choices. However, after trying this one from Beach Road Fish Head Bee Hoon, it has become a favourite! I love the light, milky, fish stock soup, as well as the slippery, thick rice vermicelli. The meat from the fish's head is cooked to perfection, stiff enough to grasp with chopsticks, but not tough or rubbery, and it falls apart nicely when eaten. This particular stall is awesome, because there is a generous serving of sliced fish. It is infuriating when you get lots of noodle, soup and vegetable, but just two pieces of meat. There's another version in which the fish is fried in batter, which I'm eager to try – an excuse for another visit!

A lot of Filipinos here in Singapore got so exited when they
knew that Jollibee is opening in Singapore. Of course count me in together with
my house buddies who try to find their way to free their one friday night schedule
just to see and taste by ourselves our all time childhood favorite fast food chain.

I choose to order the chicken spaghetti meal and happy to say their chicken joy
crisp and tenderness is so real as the one in Philippines! I also enjoy the spaghetti which really satisfy my cravings for the sweet and spicy Filipino style of spaghetti. The gravy reminds me also of home and makes me homesick because fastfood outlets here do not consider gravy as a staple condiment for chicken. #Jollibee smile

Yummy soft bone chicken Smile Nov 23, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indonesian | Halal

As you may have figured out from the name of the restaurant, the specialty of this place is cooking the chicken to the point that the bone is soft. So soft that you can eat the bone.
But why would you want to eat the bone anyway? Well, they say it's good for you, full of calcium and other nutrients.
That's less important for me, the deliciousness is more important.

So we tried the salted egg for $7.9 and grilled soft bone chicken for $6.9. The chicken was served golden brown and slathered with salted egg gravy so rich and delicious I could have eaten a bowlful of it. Never would I have imagined salted egg sauce would go well with fried chicken, but I think this plate of chicken easily beats most ayam penyets in Singapore. The chicken was still crispy underneath the deluge of salted egg sauce and the meat easily fell off the bone. It was finger lickin’ good. Add the plate lickin’ too as this is one chicken dish that would leave your plate clean as the bones are so soft and crispy they’re good enough to eat and leaves nothing on the plate. Yup, I was in calcium over drive that day thanks to all those yummy chicken bones.

I ordered some vegetables dish as well. I didn't expect to find that the kangkung with sambal sauce from this restaurant would be the best one I'd ever have. But, there it was!
The kangkung was fresh and still slightly crunchy, the sambal was addictively spicy.
And what better to wash it all down than with a thick avocado juice.

This is the price tag for three pax, if you relish dining in a celebrity chef-run restaurant.

 
Gourmands can enjoy the 14-course degustation menu which many famed food critics have described as pure ‘magic’, or make selections from the ala carte menu, & be awed by Robuchon’s famous bread, cheese, dessert, ice-cream & tea trolleys.

Well, my group of three were simply electrified by their Degustation Menu @ S$565 each, glass of Champagne @ S$45/each & 3 bottles of mineral water @ $18, amounting to about S$2,200 incl tax.

 
We were impressed from the start, with their magnificent most talk-about bread trolley. Never have I seen such a huge selection of bread!

 
I picked 3. Ladies will certainly fall in love with their petit bread sizes. It’s great, since I could select more given that they’re small in size.

Service was immaculate. The Maitre d’ asked if we like our bread to be warm before serving. Yum! Even their bread tasted different & they’re sooooooooo good!

What we had:

 
Imperial caviar on a shivering corn velouté
with golden croutons

 
Foie gras & potatoes carpaccio,
topped with shaved winter truffle

 
More delicious bread while waiting...

 
Black truffle in a hot pastry, onions & smoked ham

Be awed by the 14-course dinner & more @ http://luxuryhaven.blogspot.com/2012/03/s2000-bill-at-joel-robuchon-rws.html!

 
Well, my 3-hour French affair ended with a goodie bag containing a Lemon Cake to take home & share with my family. The dining experience was divine & the gastronomy meal is sure to please any discerning palate, if you have the money to indulge.

Relaunch party food menu Smile May 29, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Bars/Lounges

Before I could start on how jealous I am of people who stay in the East, Kakis Bistro Bar pops out and tilts the scale over officially on Singapore's cool places to hang out. Located at a stone's throw away from Changi Village, home to classic hawker food and cafes, Kakis Bistro Bar promises a night of in-house specials, drinks, music in a forest-like setting with no GST/ service charges.

 
Booze time! I like Asahi better than most others like Tiger Beer/ Heineken/ Carlsberg, but guess what? Meichers White Beer tastes even better - sweeter with a light tangy taste. Although I don't normally like beer (vodka is my preferred poison) but I guess Meichers is not bad too! During Happy Hour (4 - 8pm), you can get Melchers/ Asahi/ at 5 bottles for $40; Corona at 5 bottles for $45, and Kronenbourg 1664 at 5 bottles for $35! Guinness Draught goes at $14/bottle and $24/2 bottles. This is much cheaper than most bars! There are also other alcohols available.

 
Onto the food menu! The first dish was the enticing Prawn Alioli with Homegrown Lemongrass & Coriander ($9.80), lightly stirred in garlic and oil. This dish is said to be the top-favourite of the bar, and I could understand why! The prawns are juicy, springy and fresh - really addictive. The best part is that the herbs used are entirely grown and harvested in the agricultural farm near the bar, which means that there are no preservatives used at all.

 
The next dish served was the Stir-Fry Button Mushrooms with Homegrown Kaffir Leaf, Shallots and White Wine ($8.50). This dish was very mouth-watering as the kaffir leaves jazzed up the taste and made an otherwise ordinary dish more interesting. Nevertheless, I couldn't taste the white wine at all and this dish could also be taken to the next level by adding different types of mushrooms like portobello.

 
The third dish was the Fries Addiction ($6) which tasted more like McDonalds shaker fries with overly piquant chilli seasoning - it can potentially cause a sore throat when eaten in excess. It might be better to offer thick-cut truffle fries on the menu instead which would be more popular with the mainstream crowd.

 

 
These little triangular-shaped tapas are the Chicken Quesadilla with Homemade Salsa ($10). Normally served with tomato salsa and sour cream dip, these quesadillas are stuffed with chicken breast meat seasoned with pepper and salt. I found this quite tasty but it would better if the fillings are more generous.

 
Kakis Bistro Bar also has their version of Traditional Fish & Chips ($17) - a dish I was truly quite impressed with. I've had a fair share of eating lackluster fish & chips, but this is on a league of its own. The fish is very tender on the inside, only possible if it was fresh. The crispy batter on the outside was also perfectly done and really enjoyable to eat! The coleslaw on the side was also chilled and delicious to have. This is the one dish I'll definitely recommend on the menu.

 
Another dish that was more memorable from the line-up was the pasta selection Alio Olio Peperoncino with Homegrown Kaffir Leaf ($16). The spiciness just danced about my tongue instead of piercing through like many alio olio pasta, which meant that it will be suitable for a larger proportion of dining audience. The pasta was also cooked al dente and evenly mixed with the garlic sauce tinted with the taste of kaffir leaf. The prawns were also icing on the cake - don't we all love prawns?

 
Desserts to top off the night - Red Velvet Cake ($9.50/slice) - but I wasn't much excited about it after the first mouthful because somehow it was rather flat and drier than I wished it was. There was also almost no cocoa taste and some potential textures of the English carrot cake, and hence it didn't give me the impression of Red Velvet. They also offer Chocolate Lava Cakes at $8.50 a slice here.
