Good Value Set Meals Smile Jul 25, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

 
Watami offers a choice of about eight set meals before 5pm that are priced from $9.80++. These are great value as the rice sets are served with a simple soy-dressed salad, miso soup and yourchoice of hot or iced beverage. We tried the Hire Katsu Rice Set $11.80++ which came with a choice of chicken katsu or pork katsu served with rice. A portable stove is brought to the table with a small wrought iron pan containing the katsu. A raw egg is supplied and the diner adds this to the pan when it is sizzling hot so one gets a scrambled egg gravy drenching the sliced katsu. We picked the yuzu soda which was refreshing with a heaped tbsp of yuzu marmalade added to the sparkling soda.A heart and satisfying meal. For those with small appetites two set meals suffice for three persons.

Japanese Tapas Smile Jul 25, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

 

 
Ichiban Boshi Japanese Casual Dining Restaurant occupies tge premises vacated by Pizza Hut. Besides conveyor belt sushi and bento sets, a range of side dishes or tapas has progresively been introduced to its menu. Good for times when diners want to skip on the carbohydrates and opt for something that tickles the taste buds. We ordered the tempura $9.90++, takoyaki $5.90++, pumpkin croquette, creamy potato croquette and crispy salmon skin (all at $2.40++ per portion).

Tempura was rather disappointing as the prawns were skinny and all the fritters were too thickly and not evenly coated by the tempura batter. Grated radish instead of being served on the side had already been sparingly mixed into the soy dip. Creamy potato croquette (one big patty per portion) and pumpkin croquettes (2 pieces) were moreish. Served with two dips - tonkatsu sauce and a creamy dip that had the consistency of guacamole but tasted like 1000 island dressing. Tonkatsu sauce complemented the croquettes well.

Takoyaki were quite small - half the size of those normally sold at food kiosks in shopping centres. Tasty but the chef was rather stingy with the bonito flakes which I like.

Service was polite and attentive, with the wait staff topping up our glasses of iced matcha without being prompted.

Desserts on a budget Smile Jul 23, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Fast Food | Burgers and Sandwiches

After lunch at Lai Lai Taiwanese Casual Dining on Saturday, we had a dessert craving but unfortunately no desserts were available on the menu. We were not inclined to splurge on desserts so MOF Sweets, Swensens and Baskin Robbins were ruled out. Sweet toothed dining companion suggested Burger King and we had no regrets. Burger King outlet at NEX B2 near Serangoon MRT exit is always busy because of its great value F&B plus free Wi-fi. We were blessed to get a corner table vacated by another couple, and ordered a coffee, a Hershey's Sindae Pie and a Coke Float.

Coffee $1.95 from Seattle's Best provided a badly needed shot of caffeine to beat drowsiness after a heavy ramen lunch. The highlight was of course the Hershey's Pie $2.90 which was an irresistable wedge of meringue, Hershey's rich velvety chocolate fudge, whipped cream, choc chips on a crunchy oreo biscuit base. Best shared to spread out the high carbohydrates and high calorie content.

Coke float is currently on promotion and costs an unbelievable 95¢ only. Not to sound like a stingy poker ah pek or ah soh but the coke float sure beats having just a vanilla soft serve ice cream cone at 70¢. Even a small cup of coke will set one back $2.30. The choice is clear especially on a hot afternoon.

So desserts and coffee for two cost only $6, or just $3 per head. Satiated and it was time for our movie.

Kopi & Mee OK Jul 22, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Noodles

 


This local cafe chain has many outlets in different shopping centres. It offers kopitiam style beverages along with popular local hawker favorites like fishball noodles and bak cho mee (minced pork noodles). This is theirbak cho mee $4 which is full of sliced pork, minced pork, pork liver (can be omitted) and some thinly sliced braised mushrooms. Taste wise, the noodles were springy but the chilli and vinegar mixture used for tossing. The noodles is just ok, not great.

Best Chicken Pie! Smile Jul 22, 2013

Don probably serves the best chicken pie in Singapore - it tastes of homemade goodness with light flaky puff pastry that is not oily at all and is chockful of chicken chunks. The NEX outlet unfortunately has no seating area - only a takeaway kiosk. A whole pie costs $19.00 and can be cut into six generously sized wedges, each filled with a scrumptious filling of half a hard boiled egg, lean chicken chunks and diced mixed vegetables. A wedge is a meal in itself, though those with big appetites would want some fries and salad to go with it. The signature chicken pie is seasoned with white pepper whick adds a hint of spice to it; there is Don's Kkids Pie (same price) withput any pepper at all to cater for those who just want a creamy chicken pie filling. The black pepper chicken pie packs a punch and is not for those with low chilli/spice thresholds.
