Balmoral Bakery Smile May 24, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bakery

Balmoral Bakery is one of the old school bakeries that we look upon to as every visit here bring us good flashbacks to our younger times when having such simple stuff on earth makes our day. In the current environment that we are in, it is less often that we will come across such down to earth design of the cakes.

With many bakeries keeping up with the modern equipment and modern look in their shop, this facade of the Balmoral bakery remains humble with red bricks by the side of the walls. Walking into the shop is like a walking back into the past with the time machine.

Made up of Multi layers crispy "biscuits" with the top as chocolate and icing. In its buttery fragrance and the flaky thin layers, one tends to get addicted over it.

The nostalgic feeling when you saw the blueberry puree topped the cake with a cream layer in between. To be frank, I was never a fan of blueberry cake when I was young as many of my birthday cakes were all covered with similar blueberries. However, it brought back a lot of good memories with cake having a old school taste!

The traditional flavour that I love most is perhaps this Swiss roll that topped with peanut chunks and sugar. I always find this special somehow as compared to the usual Swiss Rolls cradling the creams.

There are quite a few flavours of Swiss Roll to choose from like Pandan, Vanilla and Chocolate. These little Swiss Rolls were being shrink wrapped and placed in the chiller to maintain the moist. We had the most basic flavour of all.

Besides selling cakes, they have pastries like Beef and chicken pie. I will be back again for other items.

Beside Char Kway Teow, this stall sells other popular Singapore delights like Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle and Carrot Cake.

Char Kway Teow is moist, smooth and sweet with adequate amount of black sauce coated on it. It has generous amount of bean sprouts and smell of wok flavour. Even though the portion is of right size to the price that I'm paying for, such delicacy is still addictive and leave me wanting for more when I have cleared the plate.

 
Yummy!

Food is cook upon order, thus ensure the freshness and heat on these scrumptious delights.

 
Spending per head: Approximately $3.50(Dinner)

Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle Smile May 17, 2016

Categories : Chinese | Food Court | Chinese Noodles

A recent visit to Boon Lay Village gave me a stunned with the presence of a couple of new stalls around and one of them was this Fried Hokkien Prawn noodle stall. There was already a few similar stalls around and with one reputable stall that I always patronize. Therefore, to whip up a good plate of fried hokkien prawn noodle there is the only thing to keep the business sustainable. With the FBI 好吃情报 indicated on their sign board, I was automatically attracted to buy a plate from there.

Portion comes in $4 / 5 / 6 / 8 and we bought ourselves a $5 plate. From the number of patrons siting on the nearby tables staring at the stall, we knew that we are definitely not the first in the queue. Despite of the queue, our food was served rather quickly.

Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle was yummy and was delectable in the mixture of yellow and white noodles with prawns, squid and sweetness from the eggs.

Without any additional condiments, the plate of Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle was already good by itself. Perhaps the taste will be more interesting by adding more chilli and lime myself.

Formosa Delights OK May 17, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Zi Char | Chinese Noodles

The row of eateries along Clementi Road is the common meet up place among the NUS students who are studying nearby and also used to be one of my hang outs for Cheese Prata. Just today when we were there for our lunch we realize that Formosa Delights do have a shop space just beside the popular chain Wanton Mee, Fei Fei.

I know of Formosa Delights through their outlet in West Coast Plaza for their handmade noodle but unfortunately they had shut down their premises about a year ago and we were quite disappointed to lose a lunch alternative during then.

The interior over here looked rather upscale with bars available. Interior was air-conditioned as compared to the neighboring eateries and with a disco kind of ambiance.

There was another menu which serves promotional dishes especially for Rush Hour Special apart from the usual menu.

Even though we ordered sides, the main courses came first and this portion of Handmade Noodle in Taiwanese Stir Fried Sauce was big even though we had it at discounted rate (usual price $7.90). The bowl was filled with handful of noodle covered by minced meat with mixed vegetables and little toufu cubes as well as shredded cucumbers by the side.

Similar to the former dish, Traditional Braised Meat Noodle cost $7.90 at its usual pricing. Ingredients serving of braised meat was unexpectedly huge and on a oily side. However the taste was good with a thoroughly braised hard boiled egg and preserved vegetables.
Look out for lunch promo!

Since I first known Formosa for its handmade noodle, I'm tempted to have this finest handmade noodle on their menu with a choice of thick or thin noodle. The entire portion was quite big for a pax with 3 prawns, 2 delicious meat balls, mocked abalone pieces, vegetables and mushrooms. The broth of the noodle was definitely a good one, going well with the chinese parsley which elevates the dish. A thoughtful gesture seen was that these parsley was served separately from the dish and diner may choose to add or skip them.
Fantastic!

Fantastic!

 
Though it was not the best Taiwanese Fried Rice I ever had, the quality was there. Rice grains were relatively short and plum. Eggs and vegetables were the only main ingredients here. Even without the use of meat the dish was fragrant and scrumptious, most importantly, not greasy. Recommended.
For the vegetarian!

The layers of the crepe was not very even and you can feel as if you are still biting on the dough. Also, there was not much taste of green onion even though hints of green onion can be seen on its top layer.

Handmade Dumpling was paired with ginger strips and vinegar. Elongated and with a thin layer of dumpling skin, the fillings were made up of fine minced meat but was not to my liking.

Don't judge the book by its cover. These little white baos may look unappetizing and boring without its usual pleats and guidelines, the taste of them were simply above an average fare. Trust me.
Xiao Long Bao - $5.90

The overall menu seems to differ from the Formosa Delights we used to have and had kind of enlightened us. Food that we ordered were generous in portion, however on the greasy side.

Hai Xian Zhu Zhou 海鲜煮粥  OK May 16, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Chinese | Hawker Centre | Chinese Noodles

Personally going down to Bukit Panjang for the umpteenth times all for a bowl of Ke Kou Mian but in agony as they were either closed or sold out. And finally, I went early in the morning and got a taste of the so called famous bowl of noodle among the Bukit Panjang Estate.

I still remember the first time that I was looking for the stall of Ke Kou Mian in the coffeeshop but had a hard time locating it as it was hidden behind the porridge sign board.

Well, since porridge are the main display of the signboard, we bought a bowl of Century Egg and lean meat porridge with egg which includes a handful of cut fried fritters (you tiao).
Century Egg Porridge with egg - $3

Consistency of porridge was even and texture was rather ordinary. Each spoonful of the porridge was loaded with ingredients. Though there was nothing much to rave about, it still have the very old school and home cooking taste if you are looking for one.

I'm not a person who is keen on spicy food on an empty stomach especially breakfast but it seems that these words of mouth recommendation are irresistible. Spicy Ke Kou Mian with egg was not something out nor within expectation. Broth looked spicy but in fact it was not so.
Spicy Ke Kou Mian with egg - $3.50

What I like about was that the portion of noodle was generous and ingredients consisted of liver, minced meat as well as vegetables. Dish may look very simple and served in a small bowl but it was a pocket friendly meal.

With the city that never sleeps the night, this stall gives a very good alternative for supper if hunger pangs in the night. However, if you are going there for breakfast or lunch, be prepared to wait for about half an hour and as for lunch, be early as they usually close about 2pm.

 
Spending per head: Approximately $3.50(Breakfast)
