boCHINche for brunch Smile Oct 12, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Steaks and Grills

The whole place looks pretty "ATAS" (high-class). Separated by wooden planks walkway, left side is the drinks bar, while right side is more to the teppanyaki concept. In addition, one side of the outside seating is more to chilling at night for drinks, with low tables, while another side of the exterior is more for normal dining. Interior seating is available as well at the far end of the restaurant. It seems that boCHINche has took great effort in their designing concept and able to accommodate the different needs of their patrons, be it for food or for drinks.

Pan & Manteca ($7.00). House-baked bread and their salted butter is one of the best starter before the mains. Freshly-baked fluffy bread and spread with butter makes it awesome with both kids and adults.

Classic Provoleta, Almonds & Honey ($17.00). If salted butter is not good enough, chuck a piece of this on top of your bread and it works just as good as the butter!

Yellow Fin Tuna, Grilled Pak Choi, Spicy Humita & Crispy "Aji Molido" Tofu ($30.00). Big fat and fleshy tuna, dabbing against a light amount of cheese set aside, is definitely worth the price paid for.

Brioche French Toast, House-cooked Ham & Bacon Ice Cream ($19.00). What's unique about this dish is the bacon ice cream! With the "concoction" of bits of bacon with vanilla ice cream, it may receive both praises and criticisms.
House Chorizo Sausage, Malbec Braised Ox Cheeks & Caramelised Onions ($25.00). Pork sausage is quite tasteless to me, but tried it with the sweet dark sauce will be able to compensate for the blandness.

"Chimichurri" Burger v2.0 ($28.00). With the provolone cheese, tomato, onions, pancetta and fried hen egg, the burger is pretty much a hot favorite in boCHINche.

Grilled Pineapple, Mate Tea Granite & "Arroz Con Leche" Sorbet, Lemon Crumble ($18.00). Ended our meal at boCHINche with a dessert. I do love their rice pudding sorbet, which is of the right balance for its sweetness.

Azmaya Shabu Shabu Smile Sep 28, 2014

Categories : Japanese | Japanese BBQ/Teppanyaki

For mthe soft bite, adding that eggs are always my favorite.
Squid which comes in whole. Another dish that I favored because of its firm and springy taste, which makes me go for more.
Gyoza, another must-order item in Azmaya. Lightly pan-fried, with thick gyoza skin encompassing the juicy fillings.
Tempura, a Japanese dish of battered and fried seafood and vegetable combination.

Ah Dong Teh House in Punggol Smile Sep 22, 2014

Entering somewhere along Punggol East, in one of the not-so developed area yet, housed several restaurants and is deem quite a lively place to hang out at, with a park connector by the side. One of it is Ah Dong Teh House, 阿东茶餐厅.
Mango Ice Blend ($5.90). Love this drink as it has my favorite mango in it, and the presentation look so interesting! Stirred it well and the sweetness is just nice, in mix with the soda.
Chicken Chop Noodle ($8.90), with a stalk of vegetable and sunny side up. I had wanted the Curry Chicken Noodle, but it was out-of-stock, thus I decided on this in a rush to order. It was pretty good, with the strong seasonings on the "maggie mee". This can easily be prepared at home, but saved me the hassle to get the chicken chop done up!
Mushroom Cream Pasta ($9.90). Had expected more mushroom than what was served, but overall still an acceptable dish. Although a little over-cheesy, pasta is still springy!
Sea Platter ($15.90), consisting of a pair of prawns, fillet, calamari, fries and coleslaw. Quite a big yummy serving, but menu stated good for one pax! I expected butter rice to be served, but turned out otherwise. Rice aside, the meat is good.

It was crowded when I went around 11-12 plus in the afternoon, but managed to grab a seat soon enough. Although non-air conditioned, it is still cooling with the fans running at speed, above you.
Iced Pink Lady ($6.00) consists of rose syrup with steamed fresh milk. Basically taste like we usually know as Bandung, but mixture of syrup and milk is of the right balance, depicting a "healthier" choice of drink.
Snag ($5.50) is exactly the same as Pink Lady, but with an addition of espresso for the caffeine lovers. It tastes just as good as the pink lady, but with an attachment of "wakening" effect.
All Day Breakfast ($12.90) consists of Cheese Prata, Hash Brown, Chicken Cheese Sausage, Sunny Side Up and Turkey Bacon. Love a simple meal like this where egg yolk is runny and bacon is not crisp and hard to chew. Plain prata with a piece of cheese placed on top and substituting egg yolk for my curry. Definitely a happy meal for me!
Toffee Caramel Salted Cheesecake ($6.50). A layer of sweet toffee on top of the salted caramel cheesecake, with the overall taste leaning to the sweet side, but a favorite of mine!

Nam Nam Noodle Bar Smile Sep 02, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Vietnamese | Noodles

Simple menu, consisting of baguettes, noodles, side dishes, desserts and drinks of course. They also have breakfast and lunch value set, which is a super great deal when their ala-cartes are already priced so reasonably, targeting the general audience.

Vietnam Coffee with condensed milk ($2.60), and Lotus Tea ($2.60). I had the Vietnam coffee and loved it, as it tasted like drip coffee.
Pho Chicken ($7.90), with choice of either rice flour noodles or instant noodles. Strongly recommended to select the rice flour noodle, which looks like our "kway teow", but in white. After tasting both the rice flour and instant noodles, I believe you will begin to nod your head in approval.
Quang Style Egg Noodle ($10.90), which already uses egg noodles with pork rib, prawn, squid ball, fish ball, rice cracker and chopped herbs. Very much like this dry noodle. I interestingly shaked several drops of the Maggi seasoning on my noodles, and realized it added a sweeter twist to it.
Crispy Fried Banana, Sesame Seeds and Smoked Coconut Sauce ($3.90). Exactly like our traditional Malay snack, Pisang Goreng, but Nam Nam Noodle Bar also has warm coconut sauce to go with the banana, which I think is pretty unique and gives a different taste to the usual ones we had.
