Premium sushi here Smile Jan 19, 2014

Left: Aburi Salmon Roll $19.80
Right: Rainbow Roll $19.80

Kaz Jap Sushi has always been my favourite. Although they are a bit pricey, but the quality of their food is really commendable. Their sashimi rolls are really premium topped with fresh ingredients.

They do takeaways too! smile

Japanese-western fusion meal Smile Jan 19, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

Brewbaker's kitchen and Bar is under the JP Pepperline, the one managing Jack's Place too. The chef has created the new menu including Japanese-western fusion food that he hopes to entice more customers to try out their cuisine.

 
That night, the first dish we had was the Sashimi Caesar Salad. Adorned with cubes of fresh sashimi and mixed with tangy salad dressing, it serves really well as an appetizer. The salad dressing is made up of yuzu sauce with a hint of wasabi to perk up the tastebud.

 
The Atsu Age, fried tofu drizzled with soy sauce and spice flakes managed to satisfy most of us. Instead of being consumed plainly, the chef advised to sprinkle some chili flakes to bring out the taste even more.

 
I would suggest consuming this as soon as it is served to enjoy the most out of it - crispy skin with soft tofu inside.

 
Another amazing rendition of cabornara was the carbonara udon. Although it was a simple replacement of western spaghetti with Japanese udon, it proves many skepticism wrong. As much as I like the pleasant rendition, I would still recommend sharing this dish to avoid feeling nausea after consuming a whole plate of creamy food.

 
The pizza is really what I call as Japanese-western fushion. The supposedly western pizza comes with shitake, inoki and shingi mushroom types topped on a soft airy layer of dough. The tonkatsu sauce was what that made it special. Sweet from the mayonnaise and sour from the teriyaki sauce, perfect match!

 
The beef ribs taste as appetizing as it can be as seen in the photo. The succulent meat makes the chewing process easy and enjoyable. Although this is actually one person's serving, it would be perfect for sharing!

 
The shabu shabu was pretty good as well with its rich broth served with bountiful amount of ingredients like inoki mushroom, tofu and vegetables. The thinly sliced newzealand beef will be cooked at your own discretion, depending on how raw or cooked you want it to be. I personally like to dip the slice in the broth was a short 5 seconds to ensure tender juicy beef.

 

 
Unfortunately, I didn't quite enjoy the sushi despite the really fresh ingredients I would say. The sushi rice was the black sheep for it's too mushy and sticky.

 
The second last dish was yaki niku where we get to barbecue the beef and pork slices. The process is pretty self-serviced hence you decide the cookness of the meat.

 
To end off the meal, we had the cheese cake in a chocolate cup! I adore the presentation. very very much although the dessert itself wasn't as good as it looked. Perhaps it wasn't their specialty after all.

Overall it was a really satisfying meal!

Decent standard Smile Jan 12, 2014

This is like my third time heading back and I kind of ordered the similar things.

 
Italian Chocolate
$8.80
The Italian Chocolate is really thick! It was very thoughtfully paired with some cookie strips to allow us to dip the thick chocolate with it.
This is a nice dessert, but take note you'll get very full if you finish it before your meal comes.

 

 
Truffle fries
$6.90
Truffle fries that come with truffle cream sauce. The truffle taste is there and most of us love this. Most truffle fries from other places do not differ much from normal fries, so I would really recommend this if you would like to try real truffle fries with the taste being there. The fries are thick fries instead of those 'macdonald's' fries.

 
Mushroom soup
The mushroom bits are grind into very tiny pieces so the soup generally take creamy and grainy. This version of mushroom soup relates to those thick authentic ones. Although there aren't any visible chunks of mushroom, the tiny bits of mushroom was good enough to bring out the mushroom soup taste lollol

 
Saffron and Caviar Risotto
$19.90
Saffron infused and certainly hand-made risotto, inclusive of char-grilled juicy prawns and scallops. The risotto is thick and clumpy, which wasn't really nice. But I have to say the huge chunk of prawns and scallops were really awesome! Everything was perfected with the hill of caviar, giving the risotto a salty touch to the tastebuds.

Platypus are very popular and well-received for its handmade pastas. I think same goes to the risotto as well.
The restaurant are beautifully adorned with lightbulbs on the ceilings and cushioned chair, giving diners a relaxing and enjoyable night. However, it may get really crowded during peak periods, like when i went on a friday evening!

Super nice rojak!! Smile Jan 01, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre

Now let's see, how special can a plate of rojak gets?

First, the ingredients. From fried doughstick, raddish and pineapple, everything blends well so nicely with the rojak sauce. It's so addictive, I think I can have another plate! The ingredients are so crunchy and fresh. The pineapple is reslly sweet and juicy, while the fried doughstick isn't too hard or dry.

Second, the rojak sauce.
The special concoction that makes it the rojak sauce is the key success of the dish. It has a slight tangy taste which makes the rojak very appetizing and addictive. Aside from the sauce, the peanut crush enhanced the sauce texture and gave tasters a tasteful experience.

The whole combination of fresh ingredients and special rojak sauce makes the rojak a rare gem at old airport road hawker centre. It's no wonder the stall owner has installed a digital queue number system for customers to order. This is a really popular stall and they really serve nice rojaks, so must give it a try! madmad

Decent kwayteow OK Jan 01, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Hawker Centre | Chinese Noodles

Lao Fu Zi kwayteow is pretty famous and it always has a long queue. I've tried this several times and honestly in my opinion, the dishes are alright only. They have both white and black kwayteow, and I presume white kwayteow is healthier.

One thing about their fried kwayteow is that their ingredients are quite fresh. The cockles especially! Large, juicy and yummy haha.chopstick
