Taiwanese Ramen Smile Jul 22, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Taiwanese | Restaurant | Noodles | Rice | Kids-Friendly

Lai Lai Casual Dining is a cheerful bistro decorated in bright hues. Service is brosk, polite and friendly - just like what you wpuld expect in Taiwan. The specialty here is Japanese style ramen served up with popular Taiwanese toppings like crispy chicken cutlet, crispy fish chunks, braised beef, chashu or braised pork. The beef ramen here needs no introduction. We decided to try something different this visit. The chashu ramen $8.90 is very good. Pity it does not include a braised egg as shown in the menu; it is a separate order item at $1.80 - rather pricey for something that costs no more than 80¢ at the food court. The crispy fish ramen is nice $9.90 but the fish had been marinated too long so ended up being too salty.

For those who wish to skip the ramen for a light meal Lai Lai serves a small selection of street food typically sold at Taiwanese night markets such as oyster omelette, pancake or jian bing and tempura, starting from $4.90 for 3pcs of ebi fry.

The milky bubble tea at $3.50 is the best I've tasted in Singapore - silky smooth, thick and frothy and not saccharine sweet. Nice place to come to when you have cravings for Taiwanese food. Pity the menu does not include any desserts.

Prawn Noodles Smile Jul 15, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chicken Rice

Next to the chicken rice stall at Esplanade MRT Mall's Nom's Cafe is a new corner stall selling prawn noodles. I opted for the regular/standard portion which costs $4 - good value in the heart of town. I got a big bowl of prawn beehoon soup with lots of thinly sliced lean pork, bean sprouts and whole (not halved) shelled prawns. The soup was tasty if a tad salty - not the best but it passed muster. What will get me coming back here is the bright, clean environment, with tables cleared quickly, friendly and brisk service from the noodle vendor and the generous toppings for the noodles.

Lychee Milk Tea Cry Jul 05, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Taiwanese | Bubble Tea/ Tea

Gong Cha has launched a limited time summer offer of Lychee Milk Tea at $2.50. Visited at off peak time of 4pm when there was no queue, but waited about 7 minutes for drink to be assembled. Although I asked for 50% syrup/sugar level the drink tasted overwhelmingly sweet - so saccharine sweet that its taste exceeds the regular 100% sugar levels of Gong Cha's other types of milk tea. Not worth trying as the tastes of neither the tea nor milk could be discerned - just an excessive overload of lychee syrup. Overrated as the bubble tea chain's summer special.

US Independence Day Offer Smile Jul 05, 2013

Flyers distributed at the Buona Vista MRT Station advertized this week only offer of Dory Fish & Chips or Grilled Dory with Butter Rice at $3.99++ or $4.70nett. Sounds like a great deal as each dish would usually cost at least $10++.

What we didn't expect was being served our food in small paper cartons ala Long John Silvers fast food style ie the picture in the flyer is not representative of the actual portion served. But no complaints since the price was cheaper than Fish & Chips sold upstairs at Koufu's 'The Kitchen' food court. The portion is 2/3 the usual serving sized of grilled dory with rice Food is tasty and meets expectations of regular MFM fare. For this promotion, ony cash payment is accepted and you dont get any Polo mint after the meal.

Creative Thai Tapas Smile Jul 05, 2013

Bangkok Jam by Creative Eateries Group is the quirky cousin of Siam Kitchen - identified by its witty, electic decor theme reminiscent of a traffic junction, and a selective but representative menu. It offers many one dish meal options of noodles and rice.

Bangkok Jam stands out from other mass market Thai restaurants with their moreish and attractively plated appetizers or tapas.

Yum Som Oh or Pomelo Salad $10.50++ is rarely found nowadays and Bangkok Jam's version is excellent - the salad is a refreshing contrast of tastes - sweet pomelo sacs, fresh taste of QQ shrimps, crispy shallots, tangy hints of finely shredded lemongrass or kaffir and the spicy kick of birds eye chilli flakes.

Tod Mun Goong $9.90++ for four pieces of the popular prawn cakes. Here the prawn cakes are creatively served - skewered on a lemongrass stem, in keeping with the aim of serving finger food to go with its cocktails and wines. The prawns were fresh and the breaded patties were crisp fried to an attractive golden brown colour. Good enough on its own but was served with a piquant homemade plum sauce for those who want a dip for their tapas.

Tub Tim Krob or Red Ruby Dessert at $7.50++ may seem pricey but imho is worth every cent. Lots of crunchy water chestnut morsels wrapped in a thin chewy coating of tapioca flour offers a delightful contrast of textures and instead of being immersed in coconut milk and topped by shaved ice, Bangkok Jam serves it with three scoops of their creamy not-too-sweet homemade coconut ice cream. Brilliant.

Service was attentive, friendly and prompt. Will visit agaon soon to try other items on their menu.
