After my meal at Zaffron Kitchen, I was thinking where to have my dessert. I saw the Egg & Berries and walked in for my dessert.

The restaurant setting has 2 areas.  The inside is air-conditioner.  The dining table is small.  It can only accommodate 2 persons while the outside has long tables arranged which can arrange up to 6 seaters.
I had Home made Crème brulee ($4.90).  It is one of the cheapest signature dessert.  It is served in a egg shaped glass.  It is good for Easter dessert.  There is a layer of coated sugar on top of the brulee.  Its texture is smooth with its milk, egg and vanilla.  At the base, I find see Almond seed.  I asked the waitress for the bottle of the Almond seed used.  He was helpful to show me the bottle of Almond seed used in the preparation of brulee.
The brulee is not sugar if the layer of sugar coat is not mixture with brulee.  It is a light dessert for afternoon tea.
The restaurant charges GST and service.

I enjoyed this dessert as it was cheap and good.

Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi | Halal | Salads

I was at Cathay and ordered Maki San salad. 

I was given ordered form to fill and select the choices that I wanted.

I ordered the Mega salad at $11.90 with the mixed letture, 6 essential like cherry tomatoes, shredded carrot, apple, peach, parmesan cheese and boiled egg.  I have salmon sashimi as my special.  raisins and seasame dressing to fill the salad bowl.

The salad is fresh especially the sashimi, vegetable and fruits.  The dressing is not tasty and yet thick in texture.

I had a wonderful steamboat at the newly opened Beauty in the Pot.

As the name of the shop, eating for beauty which many women desire for it I entered the restaurant and ordered a wonderful dishes.

I ordered a twin flavours broth ($25) comprising spicy soup with herbs like gingsing, dried longan, red dates and wolfberry seeds.  The soup though mild yet it is still spicy for my tastebut.  The other broth is the concentrated pork broth.

The following items will go with the broth :

- Sliced chicken thigh (half thigh at $5).  The thigh meat is tender.
- Crunchy gourmet chicken sausage ($2).  The chicken sausage is not salty and crunchy in the skin.
- scallop Paste ($12) - This is a paste for me to roll into a ball.  The paste is soft.
- Fried fish skin ($5) - This is one of the best dish.  Can be eat raw like cracker or dip in the hot broth.
- Sliced Pork Collar ($5)- The pork is fresh and crewy.
- Sea cucumber ($11) - This is the real cucumber and bite is spongy.
- Babyt chinese spinach and Baby Romanine Lettuce ($2.50 each). The vegetable is fresh.

Zaffron Kitchen serves an excellent mix of North, South and local Indian favourites. The restaurant displays pictures of Indian lifestyle.  It is a modern restaurant does not give the impression of dining at Little Indian or Race course type restaurant.  The restaurant is very IT savy as menu is presented in iPad.
I was at Westgate and  wanted to try Indian Cuisine and ordered the followings  :
Rice :
a) Naan :  It is plain Nann.  It is just as good as Roti Prata except that it is not oily.       The Naan is very crispy.
b) Basmati Biryani Rice : The rice has not have fragrance.
c) Plain rice : The rice is soft. 
Tandoori Mixed Grill (Vegetarian) ($29) comprises Panner Tikka, Tandoori Gobi and Tandoori Mushroom.  Most of the dishes are very done.  The dish is spicy for Chinese diner.
Okra Masala ($10.50) is a delicious lady finger dish flavoured with an array of spices like coriander, turmeric, cumin seeds, cayenne.  The lady fingers is not the ordinary long and 10 cents width lady finger.  The finger is very thin and short.  I did not taste of the gel of the lady finger.  
Palak Pareer ($13) is a vegetarian dish with Indian Cottage Cheese served in rich spinach  gravy.  This dish is good to dip with Naan as the gravy is thick.
Mutton Rogan Josh ($15.50) is a low fat and mildy spiced lamb curry.  Usually, there is a smell for mutton but this dish does not evolve any smell. I believe the works of spices do a great job.  Its meat is tender and really no fat.  As for the gravy, it looks oily but forget about it.  Taste it to believe that it is really good.
Butter chicken is the signature dish.  Chicken Tikka marinated in a delightful yogurt and spice mixture and simmered in a rich tomato, cashew nuts, butter flavoured gravy accented with dry fenugreek.  This dish tastes better with served with rich or Naan.  The chicken is well marinated.  The bite of chicken was tasty. The gravy is thick and buttery and yet not strong in spices aroma.
All the dishes were prefect.
The waitress was fast in serving and also display its art of making Teh Tari.
