Completely below our expectation Cry Dec 22, 2019   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Fast Food | Burgers and Sandwiches

As normal Singaporeans do, this one was always with a long queue when it first opened.  Now the hype is over, we finally tried the first time.  
We ordered a creamy cheeseburger, chicken burger and fish burger, set with curly fries and root beer float.
I must say, I am completely surprised by the so-so standard of the food (and why people will queue up in the first beginning).
The first deadly sin is - my beef burger is COLD, okay if not cold, then room temperature.    Well we did wait for 5-10 min to get the food, and I thought it was meant to be freshly made.   I can only say all the burgers are nothing worth to try again, or to recommend.  The curly fries are crispy, but that's all.  Root beer is the signature, so I will say is okay.
Overall, this only worth to try for one time only.

I am a very picky Japanese food lover.  I admire the Japanese devoted way of cooking, and only serving one and only one cuisine, not sushi, tongatsu, ramen all over the places but just one type, their competent type.  I like this devotion, and it gives me confidence.
Tempura was claimed to be the most difficult cuisine in Japan.   Tenjin only have a few selections, but the quality of the ingredients, and the price value of the menu are so good that this is simply the best I've tried in Singapore.  Highly recommended.

As one from HK, of course, I can have a 'better' comment on Cantonese Dim Sum restaurant.  Even I am from HK, I never tried Tim Ho Wan for one simple reason - it used to be a small shop and now expanding crazy and also regionally (to Taipei, Singapore).   This is also a sign of deterioriating quality against the speed of expansion.  To my surprise, there are a lot of positive reviews but I can only say from my first try, it is definitely just so-so Dim Sum, there are much more better Dim Sum shops in HK, well, maybe Dim Sum is a considered a rare specialty in Singapore so people just ranked them high.  Sorry, it is just plain so-so.  The portion is small, the taste is plain, the fried rice is not HK style (it added with a bit of garlic).   I understand the need of localization but I am a fan of respecting authentic and traditional recipe so sorry, this is not my restaurant and I will not come back again.

Lack of choice, and quality Cry Aug 18, 2019   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Multi-Cuisine | Seafood | Buffet

I have been in F&B, and I definitely know the quality of buffet food will be inferior.  
So here, it looks like there are plenty of choices, but actually not:
- sushi and sashimi - only 3-4 choice??
- fresh cold seafood - maybe the most attractive in the whole restaurant - and one rare selling point is they have fresh oyster
- american - only pizza and grill pork, not steak.   
- tempura - 3-4 choices
- japanese grill - mainly selling salmon head - no wing no other meat
- satay - yes, typical beef and chicken
- wok fried - too many veggie but lack of meat
- long boil soup is good
- chicken rice and laska.....no nasi lemak?
- desserts - kacang, icecream, waffle etc.

I can say this is definitely for quantity, not quality.  

Not worth trying again.

Good for taste and value Smile Aug 17, 2019

Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

I felt there is not much choice of food in Marina Link, since I am more a hot food, Asian food guy.  Also food here are generally expensive.One Bowl Man is one of my normal choices because first, the price is very reasonable, and the quality is good.
At the Pork section - the pork is Japanese style Char Siew, with soya sauce and some dried onion, the taste is very good.
Even the noodle are good.
At the rice section - I like the kimchi rice and pork.  The tofu is a bit tasteless and dried.  
Overall, this is a very good choice in term of value of food.
