Kim Tian LV Carrot Cake OK Jul 14, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/07/kim-tian-lv-carrot-cake.html

It was a good time having enjoyed an old school plate of Fried Carrot Cake in a humble market & Food Centre on a Sunday Morning. Kim Tian LV Carrot Cake was the only stall seen with long queue. Like most of the carrot cake stall, patrons get to have a choice of white or black version of fried carrot cake.

Carrot cake comes in $2 / $2.50 / $3 version. the cutting of cakes comes in irregular sizes unlike those prepacked factory made carrot cake that come with identical shapes

There are mix texture in the bites with edges and top being crispy while the carrot cakes are soft and tasty. Generous amount of egg was used to sweeten up the taste despite the use of sweet black sauce. Sweetness level is perhaps catered more towards the elderly in the area as I find that the sauce can be added more to enhance the taste!

The RawR Kitchen Smile Jul 14, 2016

Categories : Singaporean Western | Fusion | Bars/Lounges

More reviews on http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/07/the-rawr-kitchen-invited-tasting.html

The RawR Kitchen is somewhere I would have never imagine that I would have visited since its located in the Industrial area of Bukit Batok and in an obscure part of the building in The Splendour. However, once you have found this place, you will be glad that you have discovered it as it is a good place to meet or even chill up after a hard day's of work.

Furnishing are simple and I am amazed by the restricted area that contained huge tanks of beer. The area fenced up and only authorized personnel are able to access with the use of biometric security system.

I like the part where they did their local craft beer and with funny beer signages around.

This portion of the cafe was rather interesting as it has different kinds of taps stating kinds of beer available in The RawR Kitchen.

Let's explore the food dishes by the Kitchen...

It's not your usual kind of Bolognese with tomato sauce all over. The way they prepared was authentic and delicious! I was impressed by the way how minced meat was generously spread in the Al Dente pasta and topped with shredded cheese. And a little background from the kitchen: the meat was stewed for 5 hours and if you step into a cafe in Italy, this will be the exact same taste.

While enjoying our dishes whipped up from the kitchen, some of the dish is good for pairing up with certain type of beer. I was totally stunned when I saw them filling up the chilled mug with beer from the taps. Aren't those tap for show only?

Perhaps we should put our mouth there instead.
We had a first try on the Wheat Beer, it was light tasting. Our second try is the root beer, yes this is not your usual kind of A&W root beer, it is sweet with about 3% of alcohol content and tasted with hints of the softdrink. Well, this is the preferred drink by the lady.

Our 3rd drink will be apple cider that has a mixture of red and green apple. Taste is mixed too, a little bit of sour and sweetness with alcohol content at about 3.5%.

Ah! My comment as someone who did not touch beer so frequently. Brown Ale did taste like a cup of Hojicha to me! Bitter and containing 6-7% alcohol.

Pilsner, to me is "sugarless tea", kind of reminds me of "Pokka Ayataka" and somehow similar to the Wheat Beer.

Dunkel is rather common to me and its closer to stout and of course heavier than Pilsner. This is best to go with the molten wings if you are ordering some.

IPA which also known as the India Pale Ale is intense and spicy. It kinds of clear cut, either you like it or you hate it.

Stout containing about 8.8% is known for its "coffee flavour".

Not taking alcohol, you can choose to have some plain water.

However, if you prefer hot beverage, do not worry, as you still can enjoy a cup of cappuccino with latte art .

While everyone was busying socializing, we had a look over into the kitchen and saw the butter corn kernels went through the raving flames. Guess what dish are they preparing for?

The New Zealand Air-flown Sirloin steak was delicious! Rubbing with just simple salt and black pepper, it goes good in its grilled medium rare form. Dish is served with flamed corn kernels and sprinkled with herbs. However, the picture shown is not a complete version of the Striploin Steak at $16 as the actual one will be served with Flame Grilled corn cob, mash and mixed veggies.

While the stomachs were still groaning after the dishes, we turned our heads around to check out the next dish in the kitchem... Guess what is this lady doing?

While Salted Egg dishes are in the trend, its hard to leave such dish out in the menu. The hand-made creamy salted egg sauce brought a little bit spice to the wings.

Salted Egg Wings (3 Pics) - $8

Wondering what's the helper up to at the kitchen island? She preparing us for a challenge!

I gave up eating this after licking its sauce on my fingers! Can you imagine how spicy it is? WARNING! This dish is definitely not for the weak - like me.

Molten Wings (3Pcs) - $8

Tears immediately welled up a few seconds after I tasted the sauce. It was a terrible experience and in fact most of us could not take that level of spiciness. Luckily we took some sugar as a remedy to let the spice subside.

Deep fried and originally dressed withing any sauce. Comparing to the 2 others wings, I preferred this special recipe of such golden fried wings.

Original Rawk Wings (3pcs) - $7

Beware of burning tongues. These are really good stuff!

If you want to quiet down after a day's of work and enjoy some local craft beer, look no more, visit The RawR Kitchen and you will be surprised by the amount of F&B outlets had increased among the industrial estates over the years.

Pete's Western Food OK Jul 14, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre | Steaks and Grills

Pete's Western Food is one of the senior stalls amount the rest in the food centre. With not many stalls opening during the weekends, I would say the demand for Pete's Western Food is definitely there and visible with consistent stream of customer walking up to make their orders.

I have never had Western food on the usual "Nasi Lemak" plate and this had caught my attention. Chicken chop is fairly good and if you were to go back into the 90s, such spread of food is a common sight of how hawkers prepared the western food.

Chicken Chop - $5.50
Chicken is tender married well with the peppery mushroom sauce.

While the mixed grill is an upgraded version of chicken chop. It consists of lamb, chicken and beef with sides like a toast, sunny side up egg, baked beans, fries and coleslaw.

Mixed Grill - $8.50

Sauce that was covering the meat was generic, sharing the same taste as chicken chop, mushroom and with a peppery kick.

Comparing to most western food stall today, Pete's Western Food may not have the trendy "Wow-factors" instead, they still humble keeping to the old school taste that many of us might be missing sooner or later for such comfortable and home-style hawker food may not be there in future as the newer generations might not be taking over.

Gui Lin Food Stall OK Jul 14, 2016

Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Coffeeshop | Noodles

If you are in Bukit Batok in the evening, you may want to check out this delicious plate of Fried Kway Teow with cockles at one of the coffeeshops.

Gui Lin Food Stall mainly sells the standard economical rice food items with bee hoon, kway teow, noodle and Nasi Lemak. However, Char Kway Teow will only be available in the evening.

A good mixture of noodles and kway teow whipped among the use of sweet black sauce. The plate of Kway Teow had a consistent sweet taste with generous use of eggs. I like that fact that it's not dry but was kind of on a greasy side that one may felt "gelat" after sometime. Nevertheless, the plate of Kway Teow is still have it shining charms that attract people to return after consuming them. My friend is one of such example!

Fried Kway Teow - $3

Three Little Pigs Smile Jul 14, 2016

Categories : Singaporean Western | Pasta | Steaks and Grills

More reviews here http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/07/three-little-pigs.html

The restaurant name is named after Three Little Pigs, a popular childhood story among us. After the recent renovation of the mall, there are many new shops and eateries around and Three Little Pigs are is of them. They are specialized in mainly pork of course.

Environment was rather causal and I like about its spacious environment with simple decors in the surrounding. In fact, I was attracted by the whiff of the pork chop as i passed by its corridor.

Being the recommended item on the menu, the forest mushroom soup was light and filled with chunky bits of mushroom. It might contained the taste of mushroom but the soup contain was light and watery but not till the extend of having bland taste. Perhaps cream had been used sparingly here.

Forest Mushroom Soup - $5.80

Let's us take the role of big bad wolf but of course we are not going to huff and puff and blow the house down to eat them.

Cheesy Pork Fries was served in a aluminium round tin with grease paper. Simply love the thin slices of pan fried pork that topped the golden fries and with a bit of sour cream on them makes this appetizer went addictive.

Cheesy Pork Fries - $7.80

Signature dish came with the used of pearl rice, Goma Japanese leek and the combination of sunny side up egg with the aromatic sliced of pork chop. You will be surprised that Pork Chop was done by so well that its marinate permeates, such that they are tasty enough to be eaten without any other additional sauce.

Signature Pork Chop Rice - $10.80

Pork Chop is good alone enough without sauce!
Pork Chop of the dish is the cream of the crop, tender slab that gave surprises to the taste buds. Every pork chops are hand pounded with home spice marinated. If you like the famous Pork Chop Burger in Macau, most probably you will get hook onto their pork chop. Interestingly. The dish is served with house greens dressed in roasted sesame sauce and if you are not really into the rice dishes, this is good alternative as you get Macaroni Soup here.

Signature Pork Chop Macaroni Soup - $11.80

Over experience was present and price was relatively within the average fare. This will be a recommendation to my friend who love pork chops!
