I have been reading Tanuki Raw somewhere and it kinds of remind me of Donburi with onsen egg. (Their marketing advertisement has been good to give me such good impression). We was looking at Minions Cafe in Orchard Central and it wasn't appealing to us and by chance we decided to dine in Tanuki Raw instead.

Tanuki Raw is modernly furnished in an industrial interior tempered by eye-catching furniture.
and has 80 seats spread across an outdoor balcony overlooking Orchard Road.

It was fun sitting at the bar side observing how the tenders mix and prepare variety of drinks. As for our glasses of Water Melon Yuzu. Fresh watermelon juice were already prepared before hand and kept in the fridge. They just have to mix portion of it with yuzu and served them on the "rocks".

Water Melon Yuzu - $10

While Tanuki Raw is having a house promotion for happy hour daily from 5-8pm, we get to order Oysters at $2 each, limited to 6 pcs per glass of drink. The fresh raw oysters they served were brought in from Canada, France and Japan.

 Besides having that, we ordered a plate of 5 slices salmon that falls under the happy hour promotion too. It was great having Sashimi again with Wasabi and Soy Sauce!

For bites, seeing Sweet Potato Fries excites me. These thick-cut sweet potato fries were deep fried with Tanuki Raw's spice mix, truffle oil and served with truffle aioli in an aluminium tin.

Truffle Sweet Potato Fries - $10.90

One of the recommended rolls on the Menu is none other than the Golden Kani Maki with deep fried house seasoned soft shell crab, fresh snow crab, cucumber and crispy mozzarella all in a roll. Divided into portion of 4, these delicious rolls were topped with toasted seaweed and drizzled with generous amount of golden salted duck egg hollandaise sauce.

Golden Kani Maki - $18.90

 Well, we just did not have enough of salmon and here comes the seared salmon roll topped with Mentaiko sauce over some crispy mozzarella cheese, seasoned flakes and Tanuki's Oko Sauce! Yums!

Superstar Roll - $12.90

 It was my first time there and would not be my last. Simply love the environment. Best of all, if you are having gathering with friends who are vegetarians, there are food for them too. Hope to be back soon.

Bayswater Kitchen Smile Nov 27, 2017

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/11/bayswater-kitchen.html

Bayswater Kitchen is a restaurant on Keppel Bay Island by The Prive Group located right by the side of the waterfront at the scenic Marina at Keppel Bay. It does have a relaxing and laidback atmosphere inspired by the seaside.

The decor and furnishing of Bayswater Kitchen is bright and breezy themed with nautical accents. With the alfresco dining section, the place is rather popular in the evenings as you can enjoy a good view of Keppel Marina.

Let alone with good seafood, it would be best to pair with alcohol.

In fact the fisherman's feast is recommended by the restaurant as Seafood Lovers "Wet" Dream.

Their menu is dated with a stamp and that suggested that items on it are subjected to change base on season and what is available in the kitchen.

To start, we had the Chargrilled Octopus. It was smoky and grilled to perfect tenderness. The dish was awesome with smoked roe, Gremolata, Borlotti Beans.

Chargrilled Octopus - $22

The Fisherman's Feast was a scrumptious meal for us. Their homemade hand-rolled linguine was commendable as it was lightly soaked and cooked in their seafood stock. Fisherman feast was not completed without the main ingredients like lobster, prawn, mussel, clams and fish of the season.

Fisherman's Feast - $38 per pax

The feast requires a minimum order for 2 pax, that also means you can order similar dish if you are dining in a group and portion will be serve accordingly to per head. Thumbs up to the Fisherman's Feast!

 All were good from food to environment, perhaps a little shortcoming might be the lights in the restaurant which was quite dim, not an ideal environment for taking pictures. Other than that in terms of service, I would comment that they were very "on-the-ball" be it checking on the taste of the food or topping up our glasses of sparkling water.

This place is recommended for a good date and for occasions be it in pairs (couples) or groups. Do remember to make a reservation before heading down.

Rong Cheng Delight Smile Nov 08, 2017   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre | Seafood | Chinese Soup | Zi Char

Rong Cheng Delight is located in the same row as Ron Sheng Fish Head Bee Hoon in Jurong East. Having spotted Rong Cheng Delight ever since I had its neighbour Fish Head Bee Hoon, we always have such plan to dine there after seeing so many plates of Cai Po Fish Head doles out from their kitchen. However, it was always tough to order Cze Char with just 2 pax.

We were going to the near by Famous Fish Cze Char, unfortunately it was closed for the day and we had decided Rong Cheng Delight as an alternative.

The Cai Po Fish Head did impress. Fish head was fresh and heavily covered with cut spring onions, chilli and Chai Po (Preserved Vegetables bits) in sweet gravy. If you are thinking that the dish will be salty because of the generous use of Chai Po, this isnt the case here. Reversely, I find the dish tantalizing and ends with a great sweet frehness note.

Cai Po Fish Head - $28

Fresh and yummy, these Crayfish were cook in the style of local chilli crab with eggs in tomato & chilli based gravy that was so addictive. Believe me, you just won't leave your bowl of rice plain without scooping the delicious gravy back onto your bowl. We had 3 big crayfish and these meat were tender and went easy to de-shell with the forks.

Sambal Crayfish - $26

Not the usual Dou Miao I had that was in little stalks. This was the bigger version of Dou Miao and was stirred fried with minced garlic.

Dou Miao - $8

Awesome minced meat egg we had! Love its fluffiness and adequate amount of meat stuffing in it. Though egg is a common home cook dish, once a while we will still order this as we will never get such texture of egg if we do it at home. Cze Char Stall's egg has always been much better as they have a better wok and flame power to achieve such delicious fluffy egg.

Minced Meat Egg - $8

No doubt about them being reputable and popular in the Market. If Zai Shun is closed, Rong Cheng Delight can be a good alternative if you want to have some "Fishy Eats".

Craving for porridge? Have you visited the Taiwan Porridge place that has been in business for more than 38 years? Oasis Taiwan Porridge is previoulsy located next to our Indoor Stadium in Kallang opposite the old National Stadium. They have relocated to Toa Payoh Town Park that is opposite the HDB hub and also next to Toa Payoh Swimming Complex.

 A homely taste of velvety porridge with sweet potato included. Best that its free flow and a big warm pot of it was kept by the side table for you to refill.

The Prawn Roll looks abit dry here rather than the glossy appearance but we were all glad that it was not greasy. The fillings were hot and we took caution when sinking our teeth down into it.

 "Chye Poh" egg aka Preserved Raddish comes in a beautiful round shape and was yummy. It was not salty and even taste as good alone without the porridge. Texture was crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. Wow!

Chye Poh Omelette - $10

This was one of the signature Teochew dishes that we had ordered. Braised duck with Tau Kwa was soaked in sweet savoury braised sauce. I will recommend the dish as the meat was not too "old", easily chew and succulent. Every piece was well immersed in the "Lor Chap" aka Braised Sauce and just goes very well on the plate.

Braised Duck with Tau Kwa - $16 (Small)

If you eat Pig's Intestine, you will definitely like this as these braised intestine was well handled and does not have any gamy taste. In fact the combination of salted vegetable and intestine had executed well.

Braised Pig Intestine with Salted Vegetable - $9 (Small)

Forget about the calories, the stew pork is definitely awesome. With distinctive layers of the pork that melts in your mouth. Biting on them is effortless with such fork tender meat and the best thing was that it was not greasy at all.

Stew Pork - $10 (Small)

 If you are planning for a family meal, Oasis Taiwan Porridge will be a good choice. For its simple and no frills meal with nostalgic environment, moreover they have big round tables which is good for families with kids too.

If not for the recommendation by my friend, I would never have discovered such place for braised duck and fish soup. Well, what a combination!

Although there are so many eateries in Geylang, be surprised that the coffee shop environment is actually crowded by office workers from nearby. Luckily we were there earlier and did not have to worry about seating. After which, we went up to the counter and order our food.

 We choose our braised platter based on the items we like. We had braised duck, pork trotters, eggs, intestines, Tau Gua and Tau Pok. The duck meat was braised till so tender that we almost mistaken the meat as pork. However, we love the braised meat over here including the intestine as they were well handled and tasty.

Good to go with rice or porridge as it might be very salty and oily to consume alone.

Was rather please to have a bowl of lukewarm porridge with braised gravy and chunks of braised duck meat. The style of the porridge had the kind of homely taste which you normally wont find it from usual hawker stalls ~ Teochew Grandma Style Dish.

The other dishes not to let your stomach go empty with will be their fish soup. They provide fresh sliced pieces of fish in clear soup. Dish was simple and straight forward with preserved greens, cabbages and seaweed. Plain light meal but broth was tasty and flavorful.

 I like the nostalgic taste of food especially the braised duck. Since operating hours of Hong Qin Fish & Duck Porridge is till mid noon on the weekdays (Batang Fish sold out fast), it will be more likely that we will be visiting them in the weekend instead.
