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.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2019/09/fu-zhou-poh-hwa-oyster-cake.html

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.

Hualong Fishhead Steamboat has been established since 2003 famous for its heartwarming fishhead charcoal steamboat and this is their 2nd branch in Bukit Batok. There were also featured on Channel 8's TV Program couple of years back.

Its hard not to give this a try when this is raved one of the best fishhead steamboat in Singapore and also their their specialty. Pledge themselves the using a top grade soup without having MSG added and having it sold out daily. Their secret recipe was said to be using old mother hen,  anchoives, yellow beans, rock sugar and many other ingredients slow cooking for hours under the charcoal fire.

We enjoyed the smallest red snapper version of their charcoal steamboat pot. Other than snapper, Red Grouper and promfret option are also available for the choices of fish.
Red Snapper - $23.80 / $38.80 / $48.80

Red Snapper - $23.80 / $38.80 / $48.80

 
A small portion is good for 3-4 pax sharing with other side dishes order. Ingredients almost filled to the brim together with big chunks of fish. The soup tasted milky and with hints of fried sole fish. Simply yummy!

We got a few pieces of cross sections of the fish.

Having something out of their printed menu. They called it "Ham Yu Fa Lam Pou" in the dialect. Sizzling hot delight of pork belly slices topped with salted fish and placed in the claypot makes the a hearty meal. The ginger, onions and slices of dried chilli makes the dish looked a fiery combination but it turned out that together with the tender slices of pork belly, dark soy sauce, its actually a mixture of savoury flavours. They only have this randomly on its special menu. There are other out of menu items too.

Having Cze Char gave you more choice of how you want the dish to be done. Just like the omelette, there were a few variations to choose from. From plain egg, Fuyong, Shrimps, Onion, Bittergoud, minced meat or even Chinese sausage. We have the minced meat Omlette, it was fluffy and definitely

Their Signature Wok fried Noodles comes with a selection of either Bee Hoon or Kway Teow. Noodles were moist and tasted different. It was said that their top-grade soup was added and permeates into them. Ingredients were plentiful and that includes tasty morsels of fish, squid, prawn, lala and meats. It made a great choice that we traded our white rice with this.
Signature Wok Fried White Bee Hoon 招牌特制百米粉 / 白果条 -  $7.50 / $10 / $15 / $20

Whenever rainy day comes, it would be good to enjoy such warm steamboat over the cold weather. We do not need to travel far and queue for those very popular Charcoal Fishhead Steamboat in the City and we can just fall back on Hualong's dishes.

Soi Thai Kitchen Smile Apr 29, 2019   (Related Review)

Lately, Soi Thai has been my frequently visited eatery. Having visited Soi Thai Kitchen in Tampines & Soi Thai Kitchen in Jurong West quite some years back, I'm glad that they are spreading the wings further creating more outlets offering more wallet-friendly authentic Thai Cuisine.

This is our all time favourite and with request of less spiciness so that we won't be swallowing down the chilli seeds. We prefer the clear version and customers can have the choice of chicken Tom Yam or Seafood Tom Yam Soup. 
Clear Tom Yam Soup 冬炎清汤 - $7

Mango Salad is one of the recommendations in the menu. Its appetizing and too we requested for the less spicier version. Shredded mango is tossed with the peanuts, fish sauce, coriander, carrot, onions and lime juice. It's quite addictive and make a great side dish.
Mango Salad 芒果沙拉 - $6

Their fishcakes come in a plate of four and is recommended to order especially if you have kids. Its fried and crispy at the exterior, different from the ones that most Thai Restaurant would serve. Fishcake is springy and great to go with their sweet chilli sauce.

 
If you are looking to order greens from their menu, the Stir Fried Kai Lan is of excellent choice. It is fried together in minced garlic and oyster sauce with slices of carrot.
Stir Fried Kai Lan 芥蓝炒蚝油 - $7

 We simply love the Premium Fried Pork Cheek as its roasted to perfection, crispy outside with crunchy edges and was not too dry. Meat was chewy and best combination if you dip them into the given chilli sauce.
Premium Fried Pork Cheek - $12

If you love the scent of basil, you may like to order this dish and pair along with rice. This is one of the popular ordered dishes among the diners especially if you are dining in a group and sharing dishes.
Basil Pork九层塔炒猪肉碎 - $7

Basil Pork九层塔炒猪肉碎 - $7

 
If you are going for individual portion, you can try ordering their Thai Fried Kway Tiao. The "Wok-Hei" together with the kiffir Lime had spelt a difference on the dish. Ingredients are simple slices of  carrot, chicken, Kailan and egg. 
Thai Fried Kway Tiao with Kai Lan 泰式炒粿条 - $6

A dish that you either like it or hate it. While I enjoy the fragrance of olive oil, I find that the dish is tastes great though it might looked plain without much ingredients.
Olive Fried Rice 橄榄炒饭 - $6

The soft sweet savoury pineapple fried rice was a spot on. Ingredients lend a good texture with chewy raisins, crunchy cashew nuts and fragrantly prepared together with meat floss.
Pineapple Rice 黄梨炒饭 - $6

We had Red Ruby dessert to complete our meal. Glad that dessert tasted alright without having overpowering coconut milk taste with sago. What's more, I love the crunchiness of the rubies.
Red Ruby 红宝石 - $3

 The milk tea has subtle tea fragrant, not too strong and a good milk taste, likewise for the Ice Thai Green Tea, both level of sweetness is great.
Thai Iced Tea & Thai Ice Green Tea - $3 Each

Thai Iced Tea & Thai Ice Green Tea - $3 Each

 
Soi Thai Kitchen is serving authentic Thai Food at affordable pricing without GST charge. Basically that's the main reason why we are returning there so often! I guess its queue also tells us that its well-liked by many.
