85 Redhill Food Centre is one of my favourites hawker Center One. Convinced by the media adverts under his signboards and the certificates awarded to them, I dedcided to tried their carrot cake. Revealing the curiosity in me, I had ordered both the black and white version on a plate.
While most of the hawkers have their carrot cake bought from the factories, Fu Ming had theirs made and steamed by themselves which stands up among the rest.

Chai Tow Kway (Carrot Cake) were cut into large chunks unlike those we saw in most food courts, the sizes are almost the same and consistent. Portion ranges from $2 - $4 with the choice of black or white.
As a whole, the steamed radish cake was significantly softer and spongy than the usual ones. The stark difference is perhaps the cripsy char that is attached to the pieces of Kway which striked a good balance of the softness nature. The black version of carrot cake was coated with sweet black sauce, even after having them, they were not cloying at all while the white version has its own traits, it was wrapped up with egg, lending additional sweet flavours to the plain steamed cake!

 
Just being homemade, they had already won my vote, not to mention that they have won quite a number of awards and starring in the media.

For more reviews, visit http://www.umakemehungry.com/2014/04/feedlot-steakhouse-bar-grill.html

Many thanks to my pal for arranging such a scrumptious meal over a cool lovely Saturday afternoon in Feedlot.
Some histories on Feedlot Steakhouse Bar & Grill: They are a re-branded name after Swiss Grill which was located in Bukit Timah for about 3 years, back then whose parent company was Swiss Butchery.
Feedlot focuses on comfortable European food taking importance of meat served with an array of 8 home-made sauces as selection. The meat imported were of chilled quality from Swiss Butchery. Let's whet your appetite for more!
Leather-clad menu

We started with the soups: The cream of forest mushroom played a good stomach warmer for a rainy day, featuring an anchor drawn with thicken cream in the blend of portobello, shitake and button mushroom. Simply love the chalky and rough bits texture on every spoonful consumed.
YummY!

YummY!

 
A great reminisce of what I had in Paris! Nothing beats this classic and traditional bowl of french soup rich in beef taste and accentuated with onions finished off with a sliced chewy cheese and croutons on its top.
Best!

Best!

 
With only Spaghetti Bolognaise under the kid's Menu, a special request sent to kitchen for a kid's portion of Aglio Olio kitchen with less spice. And they were very accommodating. Spaghetti was cooked to Al Dente Perfection infused in olive oil, garlic and topped with shaved parma ham.

With Jim-beam sauce lending the tender medium ribeye with slight liquor and sweet BBQ sauce enhancing its flavour. Just imagine the juiciness of the tender Angus that comes into your mind as you sink your teeth into its flesh. Perfect!

 
The grill set is not completed until we had some sides added on. Look at these glistening sauteed mushrooms that shone under the orange lighting. With minced garlic added to taste, it definitely gave a punch to the main course.
Yums!

Yums!

 
Truffles fries came in thick cut, drizzled with truffle oil and shaved Parmesan cheese.
Love it!

Love it!

 
Let's beef up! We had the burger with the lot with medium well doneness. Angus beef patty was both juicy and delish stacked with, sunny side up egg, crispy bacon and aged cheddar cheese accompanied by rocket leaves in vignette and thick cut fries.
WoW

WoW

 
The burger buns came with oatmeals clining on its the pillow soft top still packing a fluffy outlook after coming out from the kitchen for long.
Pardon the ''mess'' of the Egg yolk

Service was good and organized despite that there were events in house, servers were still attentively taking care of us. Everything including food and service came to a memorable dining experience, perhaps the only peeve I had was the bites from the mosquito due to the weather. So do bring some mosquitoes patches if needed.
If you are looking for quality food with a nice ambience, Feedlot is a good choice though its a tad pricy.

Monster Curry Smile Aug 21, 2014

Categories : Japanese | Food Court | Curries

Visit http://www.umakemehungry.com/2014/04/monster-curry-food-republic.html 

As I walked into the bustling mall in Somerset 313 on a Friday night, I was rather lost as I usually find it quite difficult to secure a seat whenever I dine alone.I decided to give the food court a try and was surprised that there were still a number of seats available, perhaps, I still quite early for dinner.

The usual cuisines from Food Court had bored me till I walked a few rounds in Food Republic, it was until I noticed Monster Curry and decided to walk closer to that area. The bright lited menu and the mock dishes on display had caught my attention, what's more, they had bar counter dining which fit me most as it was hassle free finding another table.

Though Monster Curry was lauded for their Japanese curry rice where patrons get to choose the spice level of the curry, I decided to order something else and that was their pasta.
Having glancing through the 4 kinds of pasta categories, namely tomato, Miso cream, Mentaiko and Japanese style based, I had the most traditional choice with the tomato sauce pasta. I did not have too much expectation since the stall main focus / signature dishes was its curry and especially when I saw people carrying mega-sized plates of curry rice around.

Upon ordering, customers were given an alarm so that they can return to the counter when the food is ready.

Ingredients used were from Italy and that includes their pasta, tomato, olive oil as well as Italian salt. My portion of sphagetti was served with a big bowl with pasta contained in sunken portion of it.

 
Surprisingly, the pasta was cooked to Al Dente perfection which totally wiped off the thought that they were only good at Curry.
Tomato Sauce were consistently spreaded the soften but firm sticks of spaghetti, I was impressed by how well the taste went with chicken, mushroom, broccoli altogether sprinkled with cheese powder. The strong fragrant of its mushroom had raised the standards of the dish.Yums!

 
Given the chance to dine in two or more, I dont mind trying out their curry in the next round given since I find that the level of spiciness is kind of interesting.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Chicken Mushroom & Broccoli Tomato Sauce - $6.80,Closer look of Spaghetti

Loo's Hainanese Curry Rice Smile Aug 08, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hainanese | Coffeeshop | Curries | Rice

I'm always amaze by the length of the queue outside Loo's Hainanese Curry Rice whenever I pass by Seng Poh Road as it is real exagerrating with those hardcore fans of Loo's standing under the hot sun and even at the roadside.
The storefront of Loo's looks rather humble, just an ordinary looking stall tucked at one corner of an old school coffeeshop.

The sweet tantalizing sauce over the deep fried fish was as good as the zi char sweet and sour pork with capsicums, cucumbers and onions added, definitely lending a welcome sweetness to the meal.

 
One of the staples in Hainanese Curry Rice which I stumbled upon is its Hainanese Pork Chop. Instead of using bread crumbs, these pork loins were coated with cream crackers and deep fried. The pork chop crispiness was coated under the sweet savoury gravy with a perfect balance between its saltiness and sweetness of the meat. It was really enjoying. At a closer look, the layers of meat, fats and batter were distinctive which I conclude that the quality of the meat was good.

 
The Hainanese Chap Chai which we ordered was simply made with cabbages boiled till softness. Standing alone as a dish, it was nothing special.

 
Besides the pork chop, another dish that hit me right in my stomach was its curry Sotong / Squid. The squid was cooked to perfection whereby each bite was not too rubbery or raw, instead it was easily chewed and swallowed, really tender! Well, it kept us wonder how they were done. Not forgetting that the curry gravy given was generous and blended in well with a little spice.

 
For the masculine who needs more carb, the portion of their rice drenched with gravy may not be at your ideal serving. Do order additional bowls if needed.

 
After trying two famous Curry rice, I will conclude that both of them have their specialties and fans. Some of the dishes were sold out during my visit and this will be one reason added for me to patronise them again. Well, i really enjoyed such Hainanese fare and emphasize that it is definitely worth your while!

Tong Yi Congee Smile Mar 27, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre | Porridge/Congee

Hungry for porridge? Here's a recommendation for you at Pasir Panjang Tong Yi Congee but one thing is that you have to join in the queues during lunch hours. They have 15 kinds of porridge available and for those who love raw fish, its available, as well as Frog's porridge in claypot.

Every bowl of porridge was cooked to order and half a pair of fried fritters ("You Tian") is given to every order. Patrons will have the choice of having it as a whole or in smaller pieces. To add on, every pair of fritters were fried by themselves.

Enjoy every bowl of steaming hot congee over the lunch hours. If you have limited lunch hours, that will be a challenge taking the time for queuing and the temperature of the food into consideration.
Besides "You Tiao", seasonings like fried shallot oil and spring onion were added to bring in more fragrance to the meal.

 
I had a good stir into the congee and notice the amount of meat given. The liquid content had a good balance with the rice thus the congee in overall was not too watery nor was it too starchy.

 
For those who like minced meat, this is another recommendation for you. 3-5 pieces of minced meat balls were given in the bowl and what's more, they had went through they fryer before sinking themselves into the congee. Just look at those browish meat balls with the congee, simply slurpilcious!

 
Although the shop was manned by 2 ladies, they were considered quite fast and efficient during lunch hours. For those who are queuing, do remember to queue behind the yellow line in front of the stall to prevent knocking over the bowls of porridge while they were serving at the counter.
