Bringing the Original Taiwanese Flavours to Singapore, we have Woo Ricebox located in Basement 1 of Jurong Point Shopping Mall. Woo Ricebox is one of Taiwan's oldest Chains Restaurant and if you dont know, Gong Cha is also housed under the same unit as Woo's too.

Even though they are sharing the same shop space, orders are made separately at their respective cashier and each has their own kind of electronic buzzer.

Using quality biodegradable wooden boxes, it is good in the sense that the rice will not turn out too soggy after some time. With 10 over types of rice boxes from Woo Rice box menu, featuring Taiwanese mouth watering braised pork chop to fried spicy drumsticks.

Every Ricebox comes with seasonal vegetables, pickles and a braised egg. If you are craving for some Taiwanese snacks, Woo Ricebox also offers a variety of them like Fried Sweet Potato, Salt & Pepper popcorn chicken.

Complete your meal with Double Boiled Soup too.

 
Let's give Railway Pork Chop Ricebox a like! Pork chop was evenly braised in its marinates and was absolutely tasty.

Woo's signature Rice Box comes with the standards like braised egg, vegetables, tau gua, slice of sausage and cut slices of lean meat.

Pairing with the meals, we had ordered Taro Milk Shake and Mango Smoothie.

Taiwanese Cuisine is often known for their braised meat and one of their staples will be none other than the bowl of braised minced pork rice. Simple and straight forward meal, with 3 items combination like preserved vegetables, braised egg and minced meat on top of the fragrance and soft pearl grain rice. Enjoy the delicious non greasy Minced Pork Ricebox in its authentic Taiwanese Flavours.

The fragrance of the Spicy Drumstick was way too addictive. Portion is generous per se and its crispy exterior were awesome. Underneath its skin, when revealed, we get to taste the tenderness and hot meat.

To let customers enjoy the best, Woo's drumstick is fried upon order, therefore a 15 minutes of wait is definitely required.

Another item on the menu will be their Taiwan Roast Pork Ricebox, the fried Roast Pork is as addictive as the chicken drumstick, packed full of fragrance. They are sliced into pieces, thus more convenient to patrons who don't want to make their fingers oily, this will be a better choice. Other than the meat, other items in the ricebox are pretty standards.

For those who have been to Taiwan and had their Railway rice box, you will notice the authenticity of what Woo had offered from their Tau Gua to Sauteed Vegetables and even the taste of the braised pork if you have tried.

Overall, Woo Ricebox is definitely my kind of choice when it comes to Taiwanese Cuisine. Without going to Taiwan, having them in Singapore is a good way to reminisce the times I was in Taiwan digging into these packed meals on their railway.

Sean Kee - Dine In  Smile Nov 29, 2015   (Related Review)

After a few tries again, we finally got our butts in the Coffeeshop where Sean Kee is located - Dine In. The previous visit to Sean Kee was a takeaway and within few weeks from the last visit, we managed to visit them on a Public Holiday. We did a comparison among our visits from take away to trying out them in the Food Festival. Experience was different but I would say their braised duck was remarkable.

For Dine In, though the braised rice portion is considerably half a portion lesser than take away. However, the sweet & salty gravy cradles each grain of rice well.

During this time of visit, besides the 3 big brothers who was manning the stall, their dad was there too.

 
As a soup lover, the best part of dining in the coffeehouse itself is to get a bowl of soup. Soup was tasty and with hints of herbs smell, however it also gave us a sense that it was filled with lots of MSG based on the strong taste.

 
The mix platter was generously done with braised peanut, cucumber and beansprouts on top of the sweet braised duck meat, braised hard boil egg as well as braised Tau Gua. The tick and lucious gravy had spread all over it revealing a little sweetness which appeals to my taste buds.

Cut on the braised duck was relatively even with meat being tender and tantalizing to the palate.

If you like your braised duck to go with some porridge, its also available at Sean Kee. The texture of the porridge was smooth and gooey, almost like a small bowl of Congee. Once again, their dark brown gravy do wonders on the plain bowl of porridge too and seriously, I dont mind having extra bowl of it apart from a bowl of rice.

Having experience both dine in and take away from Sean Kee, I would say that I would prefer having the dine in method as we get to have a good feel and taste of braised duck at its best condition. The portion of duck and rice marked a big differences between dine in and take away too. Thus, Dine In is definitely recommended.

It's all about the best braised duck find! The crave for love of braised duck just got stronger over one weekend that I suddenly felt the urge to try Sean Kee's braised duck immediately after having my braised duck meal at South Bouna Vista Famous Teochew Duck Rice along Verdun Road. Braised Duck has been always my comfort food since young be it its in the Teochew or Hokkien Style. Through words of mouth, I was told that Sean Kee has the best braised duck in Singapore.

Due to the trouble of securing a parking space in the area, we decided to do a take away instead of dining there.

The stall is manned by 3 big sized man who are brothers. Do not feel inferior about their size as they are friendly and enjoy some good laughs on job. One of them took my order and as a team, packets of duck rice were ready in no time.

As he scooped the rice onto the grease paper, I was totally attracted to it as every grain of rice was in consistent brown color. Portion of rice given was far more than generous. I added Tau Gua and braised peanuts together with their special chilli sauce. The first mouthful was impressive. It has a kind of unique taste that the usual braised duck stall do not have. Meat was tender, definitely better than what I had earlier. It does not have an overpowering of herb taste and was perfect on the go when you dab them onto the chilli.

The chilli too has a very special taste, it tasted like a mixture of sweet sour chilli together in sambal. What a unique blend!
Packet of Braised Duck Rice - $4.50

Sean Kee is closed on alternate Saturday and since this time round I haven't got any chance to dine in, I will find to make a return in upcoming Saturday to have a good taste of their soup and other add ons to the plate.

Creamier Smile Nov 10, 2015

For more reviews, www.umakemehungry.com

Not to be exaggerating but its kinda true based on my factual experience that I'm actually queuing up for Ice Cream on a Sunday Morning. Coming from the West Side of Singapore, I'm rather amazed by how Creamier's fans diligently waited for the doors to be opened while the crews were still preparing the necessaries with quarter of the shop shutters still unopened. For the moment, I could not recall that we have such scenario in Jurong.

It was actually an impromptu meetup with my friend as we were in Toa Payoh area and she suggested Creamier as our meeting point. Just imagine someone recommended this place and have ice cream for breakfast, it so out of the usual lifestyle but I believe it was so good that it worth to do a little tweak in the lifestyle.

Queues swarmed into the restaurant immediately as their shutters were fully drawn up and orders were made in an orderly manner. No doubt the tables were abit narrow and "kid-sized", I would say it was intelligently catered in efficient use of the space.

It was all about waiting for Creamier and we were given a Table Tracker to alert us if our orders were ready. As tables were rather limited in Creamier, patrons were tend to wait outside the shop in front of the playgrounds where affixed public tables are. However patrons are reminded to stay within the vicinity in order to be alerted as the tracker will only vibrate in silent mode.

Belgian Waffles are the must try! Waffles were good, crispy at the exterior with buttery fragrance and they tasted, eggy with sweetness. Presentation is definitely inviting with 2 pieces of Waffles stacked together sprinkled with Icing Sugar and Chocolate syrup as its base.

Thai Milk Tea was good but lacking in the intensity in flavour of what Thai's Tea supposed to be. Earl Grey Lavendar was one of the hits too! Simply love the decent scent of the Lavendar that also brings out the Earl Grey Essence in such lucious ice cream.

Sea Salt Gula Melaka was my favourite too. Besides being dense & silky like the rest, though Gula Melaka suppose to has a strong taste, I would say its combination was a perfect marriage and with sweetness not too overwhelming. Recommended!

Guten Tag! The way of saying good day in German. Visiting Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique Cafe has always been in the back of our mind. With years working in a German firm, I learn that German Cuisine were not just about beer and pork knuckles though it was being portray in such way.

Having visited Germany a year or two back, Stuttgart is one of the place I heard and still yet to be checked on my visited list. All I heard was their reputable black forest and cuckoo clock factory. S-Cafe was decked out with woods, giving a quaint environment. There were even large green pine trees to mimic the forest environment or even those beer gardens in Germany. Atmosphere was generally interesting and definitely relaxing. For those who love nature, this might be a good choice for you.

How can the trip to a German Cafe be completed without a sip of their beer? Food was all washed down by the bottle of Engel Radler.

 
While the partner is in need of some caffine to perk himself up with a cup of Iced Cappucino. It came as a little surprise as cookies were given and syrup was added separately.

Braised Beef Short Ribs was introduced by one of the server and that was not from the menu. I guess that dish was available on certain days only. Braised Beef was cooked to its tenderness which allowed meat to be easily removed from the bone and was supported by a bed of mashed potatoes and 2 slices of vegetables. It was crunchy and kind of reduce the smell of the beef Short Ribs. I was told that those vegetables were called watermelon carrot when I asked about them.

The more than 100g large slice of Signature Black Forest Cake did not disappoint. It was rich and creamy but not cloying in its chocolate sponge and kirsch soaked cherries. Every layer was well define, given a good texture of what a Black Forest Cake was supposed to be. It's the best so far that I had ever eaten in Singapore.
