Toby's The Dessert Asylum OK Jul 15, 2016

Toby's Estate has come to the West! Cheers to those who are residing or working in the vicinity.Toby's The Dessert Asylum is located in TradeHub 21 just directly on the right of the carpark entrance, thus there is no excuse of missing the unit.

The Spicy Hot Wings was a modified version as we requested to have it done without spiciness for the kid, therefore the chilli was separated out. Fried to golden brown perfection, these chicken wings were not too bad as an appetizer.

Spicy Hot Wings - $8.90

Texture of spaghetti was cooked to our expectations with amount of spicy tomato sauce consistently covering up the pasta. Ingredients of the dish includes green mussels, prawns and calamari.

Spicy Marinara Spaghetti - $17.90

The thin crust pizza was nicely done up with shitake mushrooms drizzled with sweet savoury Hosin Sauce and generous amount of crispy spring roll. The amount of crispy spring roll on the pizza reminds me of the crackers we have from the Crackers on top of the Yu Sheng we had.

Smoked Duck Pizza - $16.90

As much as I like Smoked Duck Pizza, the duck was kind of dry and lacking of flavours. Other than that, it will be perfect if the base of the pizza is thinner.

Under the Batter and Biscuits, we ordered the recommended Waffles that come with a choice of ice cream and a choice of fresh fruits. We chose macadamia out of strawberry, mocha almond, double chocolate, rum and rasins and vanilla while we have strawberries out of banana or apple. We only came to realize that the waffles machine was not working normally when we feedback that the waffles tasted abit beyond expectations. Nevermind about that, we will be back for this!

Wacky Waffles - $13.90

Service was friendly and most importantly the place was child friendly, suitable for meet up session with my friend. They have attractive promotional items on the weekdays menu and if you are looking for a not so crowded place to dine during a weekday night, Toby Estate is a good place to enjoy your dinner or desserts.

Cacio e Pepe Smile Jul 15, 2016

Cacio e Pepe is a hidden gem tucked away in Hillview District serving authentic Italian cuisine using quality ingredients. Many times when we were having breakfast just at the stretch of shophouses, we spoke about making plans here and finally we are here.

From words of mouth, we knew that pasta here was something that we should not give a miss and even before entering the restaurant, the number of articles plastered on their glass door had revealed several media reports. You will be surprise that in this quiet area, the 50 pax restaurant during night time is lively. Due to our impromptu decision (as always), we did not make any reservation and was "punished" to take the non reserved seat at the Alfresco area way back into the restaurant.

Before Blue Hours at Alfresco Area
Though it was equip with powerful fan blowing towards us, the weather was still very hot and humid.

While waiting for our order, toasts was efficiently served with vinegar and oil on the wooden board.

Soup of the day was cream of broccoli with a piece of fried cheese tucked by the side of it. There was moderate taste of greens here luckily and was quite appetizing indeed.

Zuppa Del Giorno - Soup of the Day - $8

Quite a number of pasta item on the menu was recommended by staff on duty and the method of preparation of Linguine al Cartoccio as explained by her had impressed us. Pasta was cooked to al dente perfection with seafood like crayfish, mussel, clams, calamari, prawns and home made marinara sauce and was then placed in a baking bag and baked.

Linguine al Cartoccio - $24

The 2nd part of the preparation (baking) actually brings out the rich flavours of the sea. I came to realise this when the baking paper was opened right in front of our eyes.

The hitting sound of meat from the kitchen had indeed make the pork loin tender breaking the fibres in the meat.

Scaloppine di Maiaie alla Romana (Pan Fried Pork with Mozzarella) - $24

Besides being a thin slice and tender, it uniqueness comes with the combination of Mozzarella cheese, parma ham and sage accompanied with potatoes and mix salad.

We didnt get the chance to try out their pizza as they mentioned that the kitchen could not cope with the efficiency during crowded timing. Thus we ended up ordering desserts before we bid good bye.

Tiramisu - $12

Couple with Cocoa Powder and yummy pillow soft mascapone cheese. Every mouthful of the dessert is to die for!

You get a tinge of zesty citrus flavour in between the taste of cheese and cappuccino here.

With 3 distinctive texture, you get to enjoy the middle portion of the dessert without soaking up with Cappacino and got a good taste of the spongy madness. Totally Yummy!

Service was professional and friendly. Our ice water was promptly topped up even though we were the only customers in the Alfresco area. Too bad that we did not get to try the pizza this time, I guess I will be back for them!

Thai'Ny Town OK Jul 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Seafood

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/thainy-town-invited-tasting.html

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Located at the humble corner of Junction 10 (Previously known as Ten Mile Junction), you will find this causal family corner name Thai'Ny Town. If you have heard of D's Kitchen Mookata in the premises of Woodlands Industrial Park E2, Thai'Ny Town is actually one of the stalls branching out from its Traditional Thai Barbecue business. In fact, Thai'NY is more specialized in serving ala carte dishes.

With a group of supportive Thai Locals working in the kitchen, there is no doubt about its authenticity. Moreover, having said that, we have met the boss, Demise, who shared a fair bit about D's Kitchen. When asked why is it called D's Kitchen, he mentioned that "D" is actually the starting alphabet of his kid's name and his.

Environment was simple with wallpapers sticking to the back of the wall.

Starting of the meal with the commonly ordered Thai Appetizer, Mango Salad. Although I'm not someone who can really take spiciness, this dish is perfect on spot for someone like me who cannot take high level of spice.

Set your preference of the Tom Yum Soup! Red or clear? We had the red version and to be honest, the soup itself was indeed spicy even though it was said that they have altered their recipe with use of more onions.

Though I'm not a person with high tolerance in spicy food, I enjoyed the soup with its generous serving of seafood like prawns and sotong.

Fish and prawn cake will be something I will vote for. These cakes were made from scratch, with fish cake holding its uniqueness for its bouncy texture.

Dip these golden fried cakes into the sweet and spicy sauce to elevate its taste!

Gearing away from the mainstream of Thai Spicy Minced chicken with basil, Thai'Ny Town had actually did a improvised version of this dish. Carrot cubes were added to give a sweeter taste of it with a lighter taste of basil.

The usual pineapple rice had the usual ingredients like meat floss, rasins, cashew nuts but still lacked the fresh, juicy and tangy pineapple that burst the flavour of the turmeric rice.

Moving into another common dish in Thai cuisine, the Green Curry. It's best to pair along with a bowl of plain rice covering the grains with the savoury curry. Curry gravy thickness was not too thick which is perfect, however I will prefer a stronger green curry flavour.

What I like about Thai'Ny town is their innovations, a little here and there, driving and getting us away from the usual Thai Food scene we all see in the restaurants. We had the tasting portion of Pla Too (Short Mackerel) coated with a teaspoon amont of Belachan. The spice was great on the Mackerel without being overpowering but on a salty side. Perhaps one thing that diner has to be careful is its fish bone. Presentation on the other side was beautiful with the right use of colours.

The stir fried rice noodle dish was simple and an average fare that will go well with other ala carte dishes.

Larb Gai, a common dishes served in Thailand. "Larb" which means Salad and Gai as "Chicken" in Thai is often a easy and straight forward dish they make. However, it can be extremely spicy but the use of lime juice and mint leaves had given this dish a splendid combination.

And of course, dont forget to have cups of milk beverages like this as it aids in washing down the spice through your digestive system.

Awesome! The sweet and smooth mango is the must try. With creamy coconut milk adding on to the fragrance of the steamed rice, they are definitely addictive and toothsome, just like those which I had from in the streets of Bangkok.

Glancing through the menu, the prices of the dish is rather affordable keeping in mind we are dining in a air-conditioned environment and in the mall. If you are looking for simple and not overly commercialized Thai Food, Thai'Ny Town could fit the bill.

Blanco Court Prawn Mee Smile Jul 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Chinese Noodles

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/blanco-court-prawn-mee.html

The prawn mee that I have always been wondering of everytime I pass by Beach Road. It was an impromptu decision on a Saturday Morning and we made a trip down for breakfast, finally!

The man prefers to have a bigger bowl for his stomach and got himself a big portion at $5.80 instead of the smaller portion that cost $1 less.

Prawn Noodles - $5.80 (Big)

Prawn noodle soup was topped with fried onions in oil, enhancing the flavours of the original bowl of noodles. The broth of the noodle plays an important role and at a very first mouthful of it, the taste of it had already stolen all my tastebuds away. It's sweet and rich flavourful soup was awesome.

There are not too much prawns in the prawns and pork ribs noodle. Sharing the same taste in the soup, this delicacy is undeniably one of the best in Singapore. Pork Ribs were cooked to such a way that meat fell off easily from its bone.

Prawns and Pork Ribs Noodle - $5.80
Yummy! I'm glad a trip to Beach Road is all worth while afterall, the taste was real good!

There are a few handful of tasty prawn noodles I have known and Blanco Court's prawn mee was somehow comparable to those. If you have more to spend, try ordering the 3 in 1 Noodle that consist of Prawn, Ribs and Tail to enjoy a full dining experience or if you are keen on bigger prawns, try out the Jumbo Prawn Noodle!

East Coast Ngoh Hiang OK Jul 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Chinese | Coffeeshop

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/east-coast-ngoh-hiang.html

If you are visiting Blanco Court Prawn Mee stall, it is unlikely that you will miss out this Ngoh Hiang Stall that is right beside the famous Prawn Noodle in Beach Road. It seems to be a common practise for patrons having East Coast Ngoh Hiang while waiting for their bowls of Prawn Noodles to be served.

Picking out the favourite items from the display rack, we had the usual few with century egg, meat, prawn cracker as well as fish cake.

Ngoh Hiang - $8.20

Having Ngoh Hiang was a good way to fill the empty stomach with some food. Surprisingly the plate of fried Ngoh hiang Items was good. These items were warmly served and prawn crackers were crispy.

Chinese with sesame seeds were given and if you ordered the "chinese sausage" the starchy sweet sauce will be provided too.
