Visiting the old school building, Beauty World, it is less likely you will skip this Thai Boat Noodle Shop that is tuck at the corner of the 1st Floor. Food menu from Thai Boat Noodle is pretty extensive with the usual Thai Snacks and common beverages.

Both the Lemon and Milk Tea are pretty satisfying.

The presentation looks like what I had in Bangkok in somewhere near victory Monument. The soup that comes along with the boat noodle is rich and in dark brown color, totally identical to what I had. Not only that, it was tasty and I am so please with the meat ball too.

Boat Noodle Pork - $5

While for the Beef Boat Noodle, the texture of meat is similar to what we have in the Pork Boat Noodles. They are tender and tasty.

I find that this is the closest Thai Boat Noodle I ever had in Singapore that has the taste of what I'm looking for. Service wise, they are friendly and most of the staff in kitchen are Thai workers thus the quality and authenticity of taste are for sure verified. Now that we need not fly direct to Bangkok for a bowl of Thai Boat Noodle, just head down to Beauty World and it will definitely fix your craving.

Thye Hong Fishball Noodle is one of the recommended to eat places in Bukit Batok. Although I'm not a fishball noodle lover, I'm trying to appreciate and find out what has kept people coming back and join the queue. This was my second visit and the first visit I felt that their fishball noodle was nothing out of the ordinary.

On this visit, I can finally understand why. Their fishballs are supple and bouncy, with no uniform sizes. Why? If you do not know, these fishballs are all handmade from scratch from Yellowtail Fish. Besides that, Thye Hong Fishball Noodle has a long history with recipe passing down from their father.

Bee Tai Mak Dry - $3.50

Beside selling the noodles, if you like their hand made fish cakes, you can also order separately as an additional topping to your meal.

Aroy-Dee Thai Kitchen OK Jun 21, 2018

Categories : Thai | Coffeeshop

https://www.umakemehungry.com/2018/06/aroy-dee-thai-kitchen.html

Another Thai Food Restaurant Off the list! We used to talk about having Aroy Dee for meal everytime when we pass by Middle Road especially when this Kitchen is just located next to LE Cafe. We all heard good claims about the kitchen and perhaps why it was there for such a long time.

Interior is rather modern with semi open concept kitchen. Furnishing are made up of metal chairs and wooden table with tiles flooring. They also include a mounted television for diners to watch and enjoy their meal.

Clear Tom Yam Seafood Soup was appetizing and even though we forgot to instruct the server to make it less spicy, I would say that spiciness was mild and the soup really whet my appetite for more. Ingredients include fish slices, tomato, lemon grass, coriander and Sotong, which were nothing out of the normal soup we had.

Pineapple fried rice portion was generous and good for sharing. Tasted mediocre with chicken floss, raisins, eggs and mixed vegetables. A bit disappointing!
Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken Floss - $6.50

 The pandan chicken leaves were fried to crisp and required some efforts to unwrapped before we can get hold of the meat. The turmeric used was a tad too much and meat was rather soft. Overall, tasted like chicken satay to me. Dip them into the sweet and sour chilli sauce and enjoy it.

Pandan Chicken - $10

 Phad Thai, which is always one of my favourite under the Thai Cuisine Menu was really to my liking as we prefer to have a dryer version than this. However, in terms of taste, it was still alright with the fragrant of peanuts and sweet savoury sauce coated on the noodle.

Phad Thai - $6.50

Thai Fried Fish was something I always wish to order but always get turned off by its expensive pricing. Due to promotion, it cost $19.90 instead of $28. Fried Garoupa was well presented with vegetables as sides sprinkled with few stalks of coriander and soaked mildly in their three taste sauce. The sauce was not too bad with sweetness, saltiness and a little sourish.

Garoupa with Special Three Taste Sauce - $19.90

Garoupa with Special Three Taste Sauce - $19.90

 
Last but not least the papaya Salad with salty crab. There was a promotion to this item at $9 instead of $15. I'm kind of fool by the menu as I thought that it was salted egg crab. This appetiser wasnt too pleasing to us, firstly it was served when we almost finished our meal and secondly, the papaya salad was too spicy for us. In the end, we left almost 90% of the food on table.

Thai Papaya Salad with Salty Crab - $9

The good thing about the eating place is good for supper goers as it opens till as early as 6am in the morning. If you want to have pocket friendly food that comes with generous portion, this can be one of your choices. However, if you are particular about taste of Thai food then you have to be selective of what you are ordering in the menu. Personally, I have expected their standard items like Pineapple Fried Rice and Phad Thai to be better. Therefore, it is less likely I will be back for other items on the menu.

Kotobuki Smile Jun 06, 2018

Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

For more details visit https://www.umakemehungry.com/2018/06/kotobuki.html 

Kotobuki has been around since decades despite being located in an old school building in somewhere quite inaccessible. While translated from Japanese, Kotobuki means Longevity and perhaps so, this restaurant has been living up to her name. I could not remember when was the first time that I have visited their first restaurant which is this in Jurong. Till now, it still remains a very popular dining place with 8 private dining rooms and have approximately of seating capacity of 100 pax. An hour hour of dining there with our observations, you will realize that the number of Japanese expats patronizing the place.

Interior furnishing was something that left me a great impression and perhaps the reason for my return now. They have a woody old Japanese style furnishing and environment is cosy. Apart from that, they are airing Japanese Channel on the TV too.

For dinner, enjoy the Happy Hour at 20% discount from 5.30pm to 7pm.

For drinks, the green tea is refillable and I pretty enjoy their service with Green Tea promptly refill by their attentive staff.

Yuzu Soda - $6 & Green Tea

Set comes with appetizer of the day (which is potato salad), fruits, miso soup and rice with each item occupying one corner of the tray. With the main dish placed in the center of the tray with shreded cabbages and tomatoes as sides, as a whole, i find that its appetizing. Ginger sauce were evenly coated on eat piece of pork in the "just right" portion. Each piece of meat is generously served in its rights thickness and do not worry, you do not have to bite on any tough meat as they are quite easy to chew on.

Pork Ginger Set - $16

Presentation was the same for the Teriyaki Set. Main dish was wonderfully created with charred grilled edges on the teriyaki chicken thigh. Chicken Teriyaki Sauce was given sparingly however, the dish was made perfect with dab on the Mayonnaise.

Chicken Teriyaki - $18

It will be good to enjoy such meals once a while as they are unique from the mainstream dishes that
the chain restaurants are offering. Price may be a little bit steeper than the usual ones but I would say it is value worth for money.
 
Spending per head: Approximately $20(Dinner)

Im not a fan of brownie but this dessert scored some marks. It's from Auntie Molly's recipe that comprised 70% of Dark Chocolate with Salted Caramel and Apple Cinamon, Hazelnuts and Walnuts topped with choice of Italian Gelato. Sweetness was well balanced with the tad bitterness of the Dark Chocolate.

Molly's Brownie - $8.90

Though food is quite good, with its far-flung location, it is less likely we will be there often but for view and tranquility environment, it will be good that we should come here and dine once in a while.
