Food

Decided to visit my Favourite place as a fan of Hard Rock. Every diner will have a piece of hard rock cafe serviette placed on the table with the dinning utensils on top of it.

 
16oz of Mango Berry Cooler at $10.00 consist of tropical blend of mangos, strawberries, pineapple juice, orange juice and sweet & sour mix topped with lemon-lime soda. Totally refreshing , a mouth filled with fruity taste!

 
For starters we ordered POTATO SKINS, these are large potato shells, fried till golden brown with cheddar cheeses, crisp seasoned bacon and green onions. Sour cream is provided in the saucer. By reading "potato skins" on the menu, initially i thought that it is thin like chips but it is actually not. It dont really taste like you have biting on potatoes and I simply loves the big square bacon bits scattered onto them.

 
A close-up of the potato skins. Looks Yammy.

 
16oz of Wildberry Smoothie at $8.00.A frozen delight of fresh bananas, piña colada mix, orange juice and raspberry syrup finished off with a slice of fresh pineapple. Dont really like it as its thickness of smoothie and rich smell resembles coconut cream. Nevertheless, I had finished it!

 
HICKORY SMOKED BAR-B-QUE COMBO! Its a very good choice to order if you are unsure what to order as the Trio Combo at $35 consists of HICKORY SMOKED BAR-B-QUE CHICKEN, SMOKED BAR-B-QUE RIBS, SMOKED PULLED PORK SANDWICH, 3 types served with seasoned fries, ranch beans & fresh coleslaw. Surprisingly the ranch beans is hot and not directly just from the can.

BBQ chicken is their famous Southern-style, half-chicken, rubbed, grilled and basted with their authentic Hickory BBQ sauce.

For Smoked BBQ Ribs, it comes with a full rack of West Tennessee-style ribs rubbed then basted with their authentic Hickory BBQ sauce and cooked to perfection. Easy cut for us!

Last but not least their HICKORY SMOKED PULLED PORK SANDWICH is what I like most. I love the biting sensation that resembles shredded chicken. Smoked pork is hand pulled, its tender and juiceness taste left me utterly speechless. Definite MUST TRY! It has a crunchy toast laid below the pulled pork. Yammy!

 
A full rack of ribs !

 
Pulled pork that hides under the ribs.

 
Service
Service is definitely good. waitress offer to help me hang my bag on the chair and mentioned that it will be more comfortable sitting that way. During meals, she will come up to us and check if the food is ok.

Ambience
Two stories high cafe area. No one would say HRC is lacking of ambience! HRC is a good place to celebrate your birthday at. Everyone in the cafe will sing you a birthday song if you go up the stage and they will cheer for you. During certain scheduled hours, you will get to see live bands on the stage. And for normal timing, there will be TV display everywhere around the corner in the cafe that shows some MTVs. Its a crowded area well-liked by us.

Price
Price is definitely alright with such big generous portions of food.

Recommendations / Tips
Good place for group gathering especially. Call in advance for reservations.

Food

 
Through words of mouth and social media, it seems like nam nam noodle bar is the talk of the town.

I ordered a bowl of Pho Brisket , Stated P2 in the menu which costs me about $8.90. Served with a slice of lime on the spoon and the colors on the bowl seems very appealing. Orange red sliced cut chilli, green ganish floating on top of the soup and underneath, you can see 90% cooked sliced beef with some blood. We waited about 10 minutes for the food to arrive.Generous lean pieces of beef soak in the fragrance of the Nam nam's beef stock! The Pho (noodles) are slipperly, smooth and silky.

 
On top of that, we have ordered small plates Fresh southern rolls with sweet shrimps, egg, fresh herbs at $4.90. Wrapped up by moist rice paper with its kind of special sauce. It's delicious.

 
Service & ambience
I have Queue for 20mins to get 4 seats on a saturday afternoon around 1pm. To refrain from waiting longer, we have agreed to take the bar counter liked seats. While we walked into the restaurant, we have to be very careful not to knock over onto someone meal has narrow aisles.

Just on top of the bar counter, there is a dish filled with sauces available for customers which is within their reach. What is common for vietnamese cuisine should be the Viet Fish Sauce.

 
Luckily there is a hook under the bar table to hang our back packs.

 
Since Im Sitting on top of the bar top, its a very good view as they have open kitchen concept. I can see the staff preparing the garnish and every bowl of pho. The beef are only cooked when they scooped the ladle of soup and placed them into the bowl.

 
A very old school day kind of metal cup with modern kind of straw filled with Lime Soda at $3 makes my dinning experience so special. It's a fusion of olden and modern days.

 
Take a look at its cup, with "xi" wording. Sounds so auspicious. The serviette has Nam Nam's logo printed on it. Soooo Cute.

 
Price
Reasonably price as one bowl of noodle is very filling. Cheaper than 'Pho Hoa'.

Recommendations/Tips
(1) Take the bar counters if you want to avoid waiting longer.
(2) It mentioned that there is no MSG added, however I felt very thirsty after the meal.

Dinner OK Feb 01, 2013

Food
There was only a few eateries left after 9.30pm. We have chosen Malaysia Boleh thinking that it may not be crowded as dinner time - we can eat those we had missed out the other round but we was all round. There are still long queues everywhere and to make things worse, some of the food has sold out!

We have orderd a plate of Fried KL Hokkien Mee - $6.00, firstly because there is no queue at that time and one of us love dark sauce very much. The very dark sauce spoonful depicts the origins of KL fried hokkien mee served in the olden days kind of steel oval plate. This thick mee is totally different from what we have seen from ordinary singapore hawkers. It is smooth and silky, another version of Bee tai Mak but just that its fatter.

 
The thick Mee is coated with sweet dark sauce, each plate comes with a few pieces of cabbage, prawns, meat and every mouthful consume consists the fragrance of pork lard. Bear in mind that each plate is fried base on per order and you can still see the steam coming out from your plate.

 
One lady walked passed me and I thought the bowl of food that she was holding was quite appealing - its color catches my eyes, orange carrot, green vegetables and brown sauce soup.
That's the Asam Laksa which costs $4. There are no other size given except for this! Asam laksa is well known for its sour and spicy taste and yes! this is what you get in the bowl.

 
After sipping down a few spoonful of the sour soup from the laksa, I find that my appetite had actually grown in size suddenly. The asam is definitely the culprit! tongue Overall the taste is somehow there but you can have a more closer try in malaysia if you want to have a taste of how penang laksa is.

 
Paired with turnip, it makes the bite more crunchy and the greens protray a feeling that it's healthy.

 
The glue! Fried Oyster - $4
$4 for a miserable plate of Orh Luak! Well, comes with a few orh luak with the slimy and gooy eggy prepared starch. The Oysters are somehow "divorce" from the island of egg, laying flat individually on top. This plate of Orh Luak is close to ordinary but it definitely has the malaysian style in it. There is no cripsy or crunchy bites from this plate!

 
The chilli that comes with it is rather special. It's not watery and quite strong in smell. Try it with the orh luak.

 
Service
Overall service is moderate with self service. Well, the cleaners are well trained to clear up the used dishes fast.

Ambiene
Very difficult to get seats. Just imagine you still have to queue after 9.30pm. For the drink stall we also have to queue, it's maddness. In the end we gave up queuing for the Mata Kuching Drink.

Recommendations
There is a lady outside selling those traditional ice cream at $1.

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.

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.

 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.

I'm so excited!

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!
