Stew Küche Smile Apr 20, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : German | Swiss | Coffeeshop

Stew Küche also known as Stew Kitchen when translated from German is located in one of the hipster coffee shop in Singapore. If you feel that enjoying your European meals from air-conditioned Restaurants or Malls is too mainstream, try visiting here for a different experience, also skipping the additional service charges.

The Swiss Farmer Platter is good for sharing for about 2 - 4 pax and consists of the Bavarian / Germans Staples like whole crispy pork knuckled, 2 selected German sausages, Achar, mashed potatoes, harsh browns and darkbeer sauce for pairing. From the look at it, the Asian Cuisine had somehow influenced the "supposed-to-be" German platter as the sauerkraut that I'm looking forward to has been exchanged for our Asian Achar. Portion are large and definitely economical as compared to the usual ones.

The scene-stealer was perhaps none other than that salivating big pork knuckle that were cut into pieces. Meat was moist and fare better than the chain German Bistro that I had visited. Meat was marvelously tender and best to go with the given sauce.

The Bavarian Pork Sausage was perfectly served in its plump texture and lend a good savoury bite with its juice bursting as we sank our teeth into them.

Though those shredded potatoes that make up the Rosti may not be as fine as what we had from Marche, it was more fragrant and not very oily. Together with the platter, we topped up this at $5.50 only.

Having good memories from Hofbräuhaus München in Germany, I had the Hofbräu original. This is brewed by the brewery in Germany and the acquired taste was refreshingly light to go with some good german food! While for my guy friend, he prefers something stronger in flavour and went for the darker beer.

Stew Küche may not replace the restaurant environment and have limited seating but you can still call in for reservation. Overall, with menu being extensive, I find that its a good alternative if you are looking for more German Food options in Singapore.

Someone raved about the delicious Hong Kong Roast Meat in Bukit Batok and I immediately thought that he was mentioning about the stall in Bukit Batok's industrial estate. This is the 2nd time having dinner from them with the first round being "Tabao" back home without actually looking at the stall.

My return to the physical stall was triggered by the urge of their impressive Char Siew Meat which I thought thought was remarkable in the neighbourhood and their generous gravy was something I look upon to.

Noodles were sold out and we have a meat platter consisting of BBQ Meat (Char Siew), Roast Pork and Roast Duck. The advantage about dining in is that, customers get to self help with the gravy from the pot themselves.

Char Siew Meat was commendable as it was not too oily and it was also not to the extreme of using lean meats and ending up compromising its texture. Instead, the meat had good consistency of charred flavours and rights amount of fats.

Having braised sauce drench over the duck meat was awesome! Skin was crispy and absolutely fragrant without being too greasy, for extra kick, dab them into the spicy chilli given.

Though with distinctive layers of fats and meat on the crispy roast pork, it did not really suits me as I find them on a dry side. Since roast meat was their specialty, I believe this is a one time off thing and since most probably I will be back again in the day time for another try!

The chance is here! And this time round I was here on a weekday morning in Toa Payoh for a plate of so called one of the best carrot cake in Singapore. In the past I was there in the evening and was rather disappointed as by the time I was there, Chey Sua Carrot Cake Stall was already closed for the business day.

There was no queue in front of the stall which caught me by surprised and immediately i went up and order a medium portion at $3 but was asked for a table number. They provide the service to your table and no wonder there was no queue to be seen.

They are one of the few carrot cakes stall left that insist in preparing their own carrot cake from the scratch instead of adopting the factory packed carrot cake. And if you are looking for traditional taste like this, Chey Sua Carrot Cake may suits the list.
Carrot Cake - $3 (Medium)

Though most of the Carrot Cake comes in white or Black version, for Chey Sua, their default will be white. I was absolutely surprise when the lady took my order over. Carrot cake was fried to crisp and you can see the distinctively layer and amount of eggs used. The combination of crispiness and softness of their carrot cake was heavenly. Not forgetting about the consistent use of chai bor that had been mixed with the carrot cake, elevating its taste. Unlike the usual carrot cakes we had in rectangular and cube shapes, theirs remind me of Korean Kimchi Pancake.

Spelling another difference in their carrot cake will be the style of chilli used. If you realised, chilli was only a final touchup on the exterior crisp layer. The uniqueness of Chey Sua Carrot Cake had really won my heart! I don't mind travelling here in the morning for a plate of this again!

Ippudo Express 一风堂  Smile Apr 14, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Ramen | Burgers and Sandwiches

By now, Ippudo should need no further introduction as they are one of the popular chain ramen stalls in Singapore. Apart from the full scale restaurant they have in the malls, this express setup in the departure hall of Changi Airport Terminal 3 has a concept that caters to diner for quicker dining option without compromising its quality.

We had our express order via the counter just before our long haul flight to Europe. I had a hot bowl of Mentai Tonkotsu Ramen. Disposable bowls and chopsticks were used and its very convenient to both diner as well as the business owner. Stock was as flavourful with ramen cooked right to its perfect texture and amount of roe given was absolutely generous. With sesame boasting its fragrance in its soup, I do like about the shreds of black fungus included and also the pieces of half soaked Wakame (Seaweed) in their stock.
Mentai Tonkotsu - $10.90

The guy who was worried that the portion might be too little had his portion upgraded with more Chasu and Ajitama (Japanese Soft Boil Egg). No doubts about their quality and I'm simply in love with the melt-in-your-mouth charsu. The stock was enhanced with a slice of butter and was not too dilute nor thick. Ingredients includes corn kernels as well as shredded scallions.
Miso Butter Tonkotsu - $8.90 + $2 Ajitama + $2 Chasu

For those who will be missing Asia food for a while, Ippudo Express is an excellent choice during your departure to other countries.

Monochrome Fusion Bistro Smile Apr 14, 2016

Categories : Fusion | Café

Making this Valentine's day special, we had our lunch over in Monochrome Fusion Bistro which is quaintly nestled among the row of shop houses at the Chinatown district, directly opposite the Buddha Relic Temple. As photography hobbyists ourselves, the word Monochrome speaks close to our heart and somehow we found ourselves closely related in there.

Interior is modernly design to taste, with colors making up of black and white which is in line with their Monochrome theme. The dining area is a long walkway from the entrance and all the way to their cashier counter.

In fact it is divided to two section, the one nearer to the entrance has dining on bar counters too. However, the temperature is much more cooler if you were to have the inner seating.

As we were ahead of our reservation timing, there were Keeping our order to a convenient way, we took up the Valentine's time day set at $68 ++ for 2 pax. The package comes with a choice of salad and soup of the day with 2 main courses (mains or pasta) and a dessert for 2.

With Mushroom Soup as their soup of the day to start our Valentine's Day Meal. Soup was not too thick and was quite hearty with mushrooms bits. Looks like it had short of some toast to go along.

Perhaps one would say "Ah, not just another Caesar Salad again!". Indeed it is but a modified version with warm slices of healthy sliced chicken breasts apart from the usual ingredients like fresh greens, roasted olive, hard boiled egg, croutons and bacon bits.

Starting our main course with this truffle infused Squid Ink Risotto and this was absolute stomach grabbing. The pan-seared scallops were nothing out of ordinary and was rather tasteless, not even giving a sweet bite. However the winning focus all went to the crunchy quinoa, parmesan cheese, edamame beans and alfalfa sprouts that had accompanied by every grain of creamy black ink coated risotto. Yums!

As they were dishing out the order, I thought they were serving some spaghetti with fried chicken stips from far and was kind of interested. Who knows, they actually walked up to our table and placed the order in front of us, thus we realised it was the chilli Crab Linguini we had ordered.

Spicy not? Well, i was quite adaptive to the level of spice and I would rate a level of 1 out of 3. Linguini had perfect texture and coated with Singapore's favourite - Chilli Crab Sauce with hints of stir-fried crab meat. Just alone with the pasta is good enough as a recommendation even without the deep fried soft shell crab that looked like fried chicken to me initially.

Ending the 3 course meal with sweet note by this in house dessert created solely just for Valentine's Day. The platter is make up of a fruit cake and 2 scoops of ice cream.

The fruit cake was decorated in according to the color theme of the bistro, black and white and was lovely done in heart shape showered with raisins, almonds and cashew nuts. Cake was quite dry and collapse into even smaller portions easily when we cut into bite size.

Not sure if the ice cream suppose to come in the shape of roses. Chocolate ice creamed is showered with romantic heart shapes of icing and oreo crumbs were added to enhance the chocolate flavors.

What I like about monochrome is the way that food was prepared even in a festive day. Instead of serving and cook in by mass order to save the amount of time used, they chose to served their customers base dish by dish ensuring that the standard of food maintains without compromising any factor. Unlike my past experiences during Valentine's day, waiting time was long with food came in a rush and dining period was limited. Monochrome was well organised with prompt service from servers and situation was more in control. The overall experience was great and left a good impression in me. A return visit is definite.
