The Nautical Theme Cafe and Bar has been attention catching whenever I passes by. It is located in  the building of King Albert's Park Residences Mall. This establishment is done up by a popular yacht Charter in Singapore - Eagle Wings.

Its quite surprising that the Cafe has constant flow of crowd despite being located in the quiet mall with a handful of shop spaces still untenanted.

Interior features a cozy and relaxing environment in its charming Nautical Theme Decor, switching us to holiday mood.

The Menu is rather extensive with Asian as well as Western choices ranging from Salad, burgers, pasta to Singapore Famous Fish Soup and Indonesian Fried Rice Paradise.

The Rich Lobster Bisque is the Captain's choice aka recommended dishes. Its not your usual bisque packed strong of crustacean taste but the savoury broth is creamy and comes with chunks of poached lobster meat. It is also served with a slice of buttered bread.

This reminds me of our local Singer-Song writer, Dick Lee, for Fried Rice Paradise. The fried rice is not the usual ordinary plain rice with egg but added with Crab Meat. It was served with delicious chicken Wing, Chicken Satay with peanut sauce, fried egg with crispy salted egg fish skins on the side. This dish requires at least 15 minutes of preparation time as indicated  in the menu.

The dish is welll executed and if you love cream base pasta, do give it a try!

 A fusion of Asian taste into the Western Dish. The sweet sour marinated chicken chop was served with hearty roasted red capsicum, broccoli salad with the choice of shoestrings fries or rice.

Their mixed batter consist of brown butter waffle mixed with Charcoal waffle. Texture of waffle was fluffy and not too bad. Its pretty plain but good to pair up with the sweet scoops of Gelato we ordered.

Mixed Batter Waffle with a scoop of Gelato - $10.50 / $12 (Classic / Premium)

 Dishes served tasted above average as compared to most Cafe in Singapore. Service was sincere and friendly. I will recommend it to anyone who wishes to enjoy Cafe food in such a lovely ambiance. Private Dining is also available at second floor with Karaoke System and big screen projectors.

We have observed the craze of Fried Oysters Cake in recent Food Fairs and Pasar Malam of the neighbourhood. There will be a snaky long queue in front of the stall without fail everytime we pass by. Well, these traditional and brilliantly good oysters pancakes are rare of its kind as not many places are selling it.

The traditional fried Fu Zhou Oyster Cake comes in a sphere size like an UFO, making up of  ingredients like flour, spring onion, peanuts, anchovies, minced meat, oysters, prawn and Chinese parsley. Each is sold at $2 for the original flavour and if you want additional filling, it will be $2.50.

Best eaten when its piping hot with its crispy thin golden brown crust enveloping the generous ingredients. The aroma whet our appetite for more with every mouthful bursting full of flavours and riots of texture ~ crispy from its fried batter, crunchiness from the anchovies and peanuts and not forgetting the juiciness from the fresh plump oysters. What surprised me was that these traditional cakes were not that overly oily.

Delicious!

Delicious!

If you heard of Refuel Cafe which is popular in the East sides, you will probably know that they have opened another cafe in Telok Blangah area located at the foot of Mount Faber.

Interior has thrown a show case of  Scandinavian inspired decor. The environment is bright and gives a comfortable feel to diner. If you notice the pipeline decoration on the wall, you will figure out that they are spelling out "Fuel Plus".

We ordered some bites while waiting for the mains and we were glad that we did as it took quite sometime for the food to come. Cheesy tortilla nibbles were not a bad choice and served with BBQ pulled pork topped with refreshing salsa, jalapeno and their homemade sauce.

Nacho Pulled Pork - $12

 While presentation is a plus point here, we also get to taste a different style of enjoying a glass of Ice Latte. Instead of having milk with espresso topped with ice. They did a reverse engineer way by having Espresso Freeze into cubes and served it with a glass of milk.

Ice Latte PLUS - $6.50

 Fuel Ice Tea is surprisingly refreshing. Sweetness level was just right and pack full of citrus flavours. You get to taste the real strawberry fruits, kaffir lime and mint flavours in this drink. Definitely a boost to your vitamin C for the day!

The slow baked tender pork ribs were tantalizing! It comes with thai inspired mixed salad that contains rocket leaves, cauliflower, strawberries and even slice of fried lotus root. Yum! Taste and tenderness were definitely great and comparable to those cafe that specialized in BBQ Ribs. However, one thing that can improve on maybe perhaps the serving time. It was served cold and we preferred to have it at least warm.

Honey BBQ Babyback Ribs - $20

It was the dish I looked forward to the most before travelling down. I was tad disappointed as it was served with egg fettucini instead. Nonetheless, the quality of the food was above expectation. Tender chunks of beef was a spot on. The slow cooked beef in rich hereby tomato sauce was generous and every part of the pasta was well coated in sauce.

Beef Ragu - $18

 Overall, food has been slightly above expectation and by looking at other tables orders, i'm kind of convinced that we have to make additional trip back to try other interesting bites, desserts as well as the Mains. Serving timing for the mains may take a while but good food comes to those who wait. Ha Ha Ha.

Mui Kee Congee OK Nov 22, 2019

https://www.umakemehungry.com/2019/08/mui-kee-congee.html

Chanced by Mui Kee Congee while we were around Shaw Centre area and decided to give it a try as there was no queue.
Mui Kee Congee

Mui Kee Congee

 
To begin with, Mui Kee has its very first outlet in Mong Kok, Hong Kong. It had begun with a young 30 years old lady , Mak Mui. Her son then took over the reins by putting in his same amount of passion and efforts as his mum. Over the years, Mui Kee has steadily built up its reputation among locals as well as tourists. Three generations later, Mak Mui's grandson (known as Ah Tung) took over the business. He took over the recipes and heritage cooking techniques during the 2 years of training from his grandmother at the age of 22 before he was allowed to be in the kitchen.

Congee is definitely the traditional Cantonese way of preparation. It was silky till no grains of rice can be seen. They were not watery and best was that each mouthful of it was permeated with so much of charred flavours in it.  While I expect the dace fish balls to smell abit fishy but I was thrown with some surprise here.

There were about 6 dace fish balls in my bowl and we were quite comfortable with the taste. It was bouncy and tasted refreshing. Seems like that one of the ingredients included were orange zest.

Innard were cooked to the correct texture, not too tough. As for the intestines, they were well handled. We added some pork balls for another $4 and we were glad that it did not disappoint.

Steamed rice noodle was thin and smooth by itself. Adding on the sweet black sauce had boosted its moisture and lifting the plain rice noodle a delectable one with its ingredients. Besides the mixed mushrooms, it does come with a few variation like the chfe recommendations, Sakura Ebi or Roasted Duck with preserved vegetables.

Mixed Mushrooms 杂菇肠粉- $5

The Chrysanthemum Red Dates tea is not your usual kind of sweet herbal tea. Instead it tasted bitter and may not be a liking for all.

Each Overall, Mui Kee had brought the culture from Hong Kong into the shop where service staff take order conversing in Cantonese. However you can get them to switch into Mandarin or English too if you prefer this way. Apart than that, service is quite efficient and luckily the atrocious Hong Kong Service culture was not being brought here.

https://www.umakemehungry.com/2019/06/whampoa-keng-fish-head-steamboat.html

Friends were mentioning that we should try some Fish Steamboat for the evening and we went through a list of popular eating places and decided that we should explore the shop house in Balestier as its has been popular and long standing in that area.

It was nearing dinner time and for walk-in customers we had to join the snaky long queue as we did not make any reservations.

While waiting for our tables, we were told to look into the menu and decide what to order. There were seats outside the restaurant to let customers rest while waiting, however the number of seats could not accommodate all the people that were waiting. Some of them have to stand on the pavement which is just next to the road and we find it quite dangerous, also blocking the pedestrians who were passing by us.

The Queue

We waited for quite sometimes and while watching both human and the traffic, we managed to catch the beautiful blue hour during that day.

About an hour of wait, we finally got our table. Order taking was fast and soon, our dishes were up on the table.

Spinach has a well balanced with depth of flavour coming from the mixture of normal, century and salted eggs. I'm the one who usually love to grab some of the vegetable gravy with my rice but not in this case as it is more of diluted and too much water content in the dish.

Har Cheong kai aka Prawn Paste Chicken's depth of flavour is there and it was marinated long enough with the fermented prawn paste. Wings were plump and crispy at its first bite, letting out its hot juicy flavours.

This was what we were attracted to Whampoa Keng. The steamboat stock was milky and tasted great. Ingredients include the chunks of fish, fried yam, cabbages, seaweed, herbs and hints of fried sole fish taste were spotted. Charcoal as left burning throughout the session in the middle of the pot.

Let's dig in

The entire eating area was cramp and servers have to be extremely careful not to knock over the hot steamboat into others. Not only that, the entire place was smoky with steam rising up from each table's hot pot.

Their prices are on a steeper side if we were to compare the same meals to other Fish Head Steamboat. For that time taken for us to queue and grab a table, I would not mind exchange Whampoa Keng Fish Head Steamboat for other eating places. However, taking a look at the crowd, it seems like big families with elderly were enjoy such dinner sessions. Perhaps this traditional name of Fish Head Steamboat already have a group of their die hard fans who love Whampoa Keng's style of preparing the Steamboat.
