Llao Llao Yoghurt Smile Dec 16, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Frozen Yogurt

Llao Llao Yoghurt which is pronnouce as "Yao Yao" as finally hit the shores of Singapore. Started in 2009 and considering the leader in the frozen yoghurt market, there are already more than 70 outlets in Europe and counting.

Since its opening, Llao Llao Yoghurt is always seem to have a long queues no matter which outlet they are at. Being a fan of Yoghurt, the curiosity in me has make me wonder how are their standards if were to compared with local Yami Yoghurt and other Yoghurt outlets.

Having Llao Llao Yoghurt is quite interesting with many combinations such as its sauce and choice of fruits, if you are game for something more cool and soothing, you can try out their smoothies too.

With its wide range of fruits and unique sauces, patrons are simply spoilt for choices.

 
Having the Sanum at $6.50, we were given a choice to have 3 fruits to go with crunch, a choice of sauce and the frozen yoghurt that sits on top of everything.

 
The original Yoghurt was very creamy and portion was generous. The milky addition to the ice cool yoghurt is very soothing when consumed. While the chocolate fudge with a little coating on the Vanilla color Yoghurt.

Green spoon that was being provided are very long, suitable for the dept of the cup. Fruits portion for us were rock melon, strawberry and blueberries.

 
As a Yoghurt lover, I think that the portion is quite big and can be shared among some friends. Comparing to other Yoghurt I had, firstly portion did not go by weight which is quite comfortable to me and their varieties available can beat others hands down.

After seeing some of the renovations and its outlets, in the West I think I will most likely be addicted to such stuff!

Located in a historic landmark in Singapore, Clifford Restaurant is surrounded with a relaxing environment along the Marina Bay. By words of mouths we learn of this restaurant for its fantastic ambiance and its delicious food.

Charmed by its 10 metres high ceiling and the elegance of the entire environment, overlooking the inspiring water at the bay, it had already won my heart over. To add on, their vintage furnishings with its solid herringbone oak flooring made the environment gorgeous. Though it may seem a little quaint but definitely a charming place presenting a homely feel to all diners, a great spot for romance as well as business.

Dining with Sparkling water Badoit (750ml) - $13

 
Ordered some sparkling water to quench our thirst and to prepare for the incoming meals ordered, Clifford Restaurant had lend their welcomes with a plate of complementary breads (baguette and multigrains buns), served warm with chilled duck rillette and butter.

 

 
The start of our Gastronomic indulgence!

Kicked start with a bowl of awesome french onion soup! Authentic and packed full of the French's Traditional Onion Soup! Rich, filled with caramelized onions and melted gruyere cheese as well as croutons. Just cant help falling in love with the softened crouton with those sticky cheese.

 
Served with Truffle Ravioli, Porcini Mushroom Soup was stunning in its foamy parmesan with mascarpone cheese. Tasted light of mushroom and was very smooth, a total addiction!

 
220g of grilled Angus beef Entrecote (premium cut on beef) with Beurre Maitre D'Hotel (parsley butter) and a side of Fries infused with the great truffle scent.

 
Yummy!

Yummy!

 
Medium Well!

Medium Well!

 
3 Hours Home made Duck confit is one of Clifford's signature dishes. Served with a dollop of puree black garlic with and sides like sauteed broad beans, filed greens and truffle potato mousseline. Duck confit was cooked to perfection while potato mousseline was smooth and creamy.

 

 
We had a long wait before this signature apple tart tartin appears before us (I guess they baked it from the scratch). Tart was cut into smaller pieces on the pan and served upside down. The friendly server than placed one piece of it onto our plates which were already adorn with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and dash of caramel on the plate.

 

 
A cup of long black to round up the meal with the desserts and Clifford Restaurant threw in some surprises to us with a plate of petit four (In French, meaning "Small Oven") consisting of Kueh Lapis. Macarons and White Chocolates. Sweetness from petit four complimented the aromatic cup of long black.

 

 

 
Considering its price tag, perhaps many would have turn off after looking at its menu. However, I will like to emphasize that for the excellent ambiance, food quality and personalized service, its all worth the money spend for a memorable session here in Clifford.

 
Spending per head: Approximately $150(Dinner)

Tan Hock Seng Smile Dec 10, 2014

I have never heard of the place until my pal showed me yesterday. Tan Hock Seng is really a gem hidden along Pekin Street selling traditional chinese pastries.
Tan Hock Seng

Tan Hock Seng

 
Perhaps one of the oldest shop there, Tan Hock Seng has already over 70 years of history yet still maintaining its old school style of shop interior and old-fashioned way of arranging goods, reusing its carton boxes as storage boxes with hand written signage indicating the items.

They have a variety of pastries like Beh Teh Sor, Tau Sar Piah, green bean cake, white cake and many other Hokkien pastries that I had never come across. I'm amazed. Perhaps such confectioneries are at risk of extinction in the next generation if such legacy is not being pass on to the younger generations.

One of the interesting finds I saw was its "老妈糕 Lao Ma Gao". In a box of 4, doughy texture with flour coating, it somehow gave a very familiar fragrance which is too hard for us to recall its resemblance.

 
Opted for its salty Tau Sar Piah over the sweet ones in looking for some traditional taste. Instead of having them packed in the commercialized box, they had it packed in translucent SKP plastic bag. Everything was so down to earth and straight froward, just like the good old times. Its flaky layered of crusts in its butter fragrance with salty Tau Sar paste cradled in its core was simply divine.

 
I was pretty happy to find little piglets too! I never had thought I would have seen them in such season as they only come out in the market during Mid-Autumn Festival.

 
While white rice cake are most common items on the shelves or can be found at a small corner of super mart. A sweet and salty combination from the traditional rice cakes.

 
Truly love this nostalgic place! Recommended!

One of the hot spot to romance your date.

Salt Grill & Sky Bar by Luke Mangan (One of Australia Leading Chefs) located at 55th and 56th floors of ION Orchard, serving contemporary Australian cuisine in a spacious environment with magnificent view of the bustling Orchard Road.

Accessing to the restaurant was make easier with the helpful staff, just proceed to the concierge desk at level 4 and they will direct you to a exclusive elevator that will take you up to level 55 directly in a short moment.

Sitting by the side windows with an overall breath taking view was really an indulgence. I didn't expect that the windows seats was all taken up on a Monday night. However, if you want to secure a seat by the windows and surprise your loves one, just fork out another $95++ for their WOW Package.

The tall ceiling and its glass panels looking out into the wide dark sky added sensational mood to the elegant dining environment. On top of that, service was polite and friendly with attentive waitresses / waiters who attended to our request without further ado.

With the panoramic view and the impeccable service from the staff, our mood was eventually tuned to the right frequency, throwing away what we had for that moment. Ambiance was definitely a perfect spot if you want to impress your date.

Upon ushered to our seats, we were greeted by a plate of warm bread with extra virgin olive oil and a plate of mix spices.

 
Special thanks to the chef for preparing 2 spoonfuls of surprise for us, so sweet of them.

 
A signature dish across Luke Mangan's restaurant. The 'glass' Sydney crab omelette was impressive with the smooth yellow omelette cradling fresh succulent crab bits. And Miso mustard broth was poured into the plate upon serving. Simply love this dish with enoki mushroom & herb salad as its garnishing. Yummy!

 
Tasting of pork is another interesting dish that comes with 4 items on plate. I was advised to dine from the left to right with the first item starring confit belly where its top layer was crispy while the subsequent layer was soft and chewy, not too oily.

Next was its caramelized apple which reminds me of apple pie. A not too sweet version with an apple crunch.

Following the 3rd item from the left, the braised cheek did whet my appetite for more, it seems like the small piece of it was just never enough. Braised and infused to its meat yet retaining itsnatural sweetness and juiciness. Meat was soft and I wish I could have more on the plate.

With the bacon wrapped loin as the last item, it perfect the dish to the so called named "Tasting of Pork".

 
All items were complimented by sweet red wine sauce and spring cabbages as its base.

 
While off the grill, we had Sirloin weighing 250g on the plate, medium-well doneness. The chef did do a great job to have it done at our request. What a tantalizing treat I had with the steak added with moroccan spice, sauteed spinach, eggplant puree and red wine sauce. Awesome! On a side note, the Sirloin comes from Rangers valley, New South Wales and is 300 days grain fed.

 
We had chosen the dessert with Chocolate delice, salted caramel, honey comb, praline ice cream.

I did a last minute birthday request and the quick witted lady took me to one side as I revealed that I need to have some birthday wordings on the dessert. She was very professional in handling the request and it took me last than a minute without my partner noticing.

Birthday greetings were written on the plate with romantic candle pierce through the creamy ice cream.

 
It started with a warm welcome and ended well with a good bye from the team.

Dining experience was great however one challenging task throughout was that I find it difficult to capture the items under a low light condition thus pictures taken were not too favourable but still, having dine in Salt Grill & Sky Bar was enjoyable. I will be back for their set lunch.

The disgruntled Chef has its own block down the hill and is looking a quiet and relaxing place to dine in with soothing music playing in the background. Owned by award-winning Singaporean chef Daniel Sia, The Disgruntled Chef
is a restaurant and bar that serves mouth-watering Modern European
cuisine. If not for the points accumulated in our Telco plans, we would not have discovered such enjoyable dining experience in the wild.

As we did a last minute reservation, we only get the outdoor seats.

The staff had prepared mosquito coils at corners on the outdoor dining area. Even with the presence of such deterrence, I was still heavily attacked by the mosquitoes. But one point to note that the duty staff was indeed very attentive to our needs and I would like to compliment her for her on the ball service.

Tilley lamp was placed on our table but instead of the old fashioned way of getting light from the lamp, candle was used. I just cant imagine how romantic if the sky turns darker in the night.

As we are not taking any of the cocktails which are alchol in content, the assistant had recommended that we could try out their mocktails. Even though the drinks on the menu was limited, she further explained that their bar is very big and they can provide customized drinks based on our preferred tables which somehow enlightened us.

We have a fruity flavoured mocktail with lychee bits below the rocks and a stick of grapes. Pandan leave was included on the drink too. I'm totally satisfied.

 
I was asking for something refreshing and it came out that I have orange with seeds of the passion fruit among the lime leaves. That was what I really wanted, refreshing and surprising.

 
A fusion of Japanese flavours into the western's. The Scallop was thinly sliced and seared to its perfection coated by sweet soy brown butter paired with Ikura, Kobu and Lime. It was light on the palate and a brillant small plate to start with!

 
With the vouchers, we are entitled 1 for 1 main and we had the grilled seabass. It was a juvenile fish roasted to its perfection, rubbed with tapenade on its body. The dish was paired with artichokes, sweet cherry tomatoes and garlic puree sauce.

 
As a fish lover, Im very pleased to have tasted such a dish.

 
Oven Baked Miso Cod was recommended by the lady who served us. The dish was perfect with Cod slightly burnt in the exterior yet retaining the smooth and moisturized fleash, coupled with a bed of chopped spinach, braised shimeji and topped off with Olive Vegetables.

 
Ah... This is way too tempting!

 
Even though the chefs are disgruntled, the food were served at their best quality and skills. Now I begin to wonder how's the standard of food if they were not disgruntled. Ha!

I would said what you paid for is what you will be getting. I recommend this place best for romantic dinner and for celebrations.
