mi Casa is actually an upgrade from a nearby hawker stall in Bukit Timah market and food Centre. They have transformed from a kitchen into kitchen and bar now. On top of that, the upper level of miCasa provides a different type of ambiance.

 

miCasa While waiting for the food, we had some Australian Juices to accompany us. They are cranberry and lime juice.

 Ciabatta was lightly toasted and served warm with mushrooms.

Mushrooms Glistering top layer of pork cheek is crispy and definitely addictive with its melting texture. Put the cube into your mouth and gently press it down with your tongue and enjoy it. It may look the our Chinese version of "Sio Bak" but this is way healthier as these cheeks are less fatty, tender and richer in flavor. Try and you may like it!

 Live clams in white wine sauce was their Local Fresh Catch and nicely done up consisting buttery flavours of wine with garnishing like garlic, spring onions and cut chilli.

Yummy

With the natural sweetness from the clams, the stock was made delicious and I cant stop at the first helping.

It must be crazy to order Clam Pasta after ordering the live clams but the love of having clam just didnt stop us. Pasta was cooked to Al Dente perfection and in light stock. However we would prefer the stock of the pasta from the white wine above. Perhaps so, the dish will be made perfect.

The thing about ordering striplion here is base strictly on its weight. If not for the wait on Tomahawks that will take about 45 minutes, we would have skipped the striploin. Nonetheless, having striploin also means that we may be back for the 1kg of Tomahawks. With the good crowd at night, if you want to order Tomahawks, it would be best to order in advance.

Striploin in medium rare doneness as requested was pretty well prepared as seen from the pinkish layer of meat in between, acommpanied by mashed potatoes and some garden greens. Meat was tender and awesomely done.

This is not the usual carbonara that get soaked in a pool of cream (even though I prefer that style). One of the perks of this dish is the generous use of sausage as well as pork meat.

Carbonara - $14

Given the homely ambiance and relaxing environment, its hard not to be back again. Food might not be the most authentic Spanish or Italian ones but at least it somewhere we know that will not hurt your pocket in terms of such cuisine.

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".

Eng Kee 榮記 OK Nov 08, 2017   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Coffeeshop

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/10/eng-kee.html

We chanced by this place the last round while we were on our way to 2 Chefs Eating Place. We were caught by the pleasant surprise with a good long queue line up in front of Eng Kee. Where curiosity kills the cat, we walked forward to the old school coffeeshop and checked that it was actually selling some economical fried bee hoon with the standard sides / finger food that we can get from the supermarket.

Lauded for its delicious and tasty chicken wings that was classified as one of the best 20 in Singapore, we find it hard to resist without ordering more than one portion for each of us. While many of us will think that economical Bee Hoon is best eaten in the morning but for Eng Kee, there are only operating from 12pm in Weekdays and 12.30pm to about 10 pm in the evening.

We had some plates with bee hoon and some plates with Bee Hoon Mee and the staples food items like fried eggs, cabbages, Otah, Ngoh Hiang, Taiwan Sausages, Fish cakes and Tau Kwa.

The chicken wings were not ready at the point of our order due to high demands from the diner. It was quite amazing that the kitchen was actually frying chicken wings non stop as I could see the continuous batches of wings coming out of the kitchen during my queue for food.

Otah and Assortment

 As I sink my teeth into the piping hot golden brown wings, I fell in love with its crispy thin crunching skin. As I sink my teeth further in, I realized the juiciness of it. However, if you are talking about the Chicken Wing's taste, it was not complicated as the marinate was simple. You do not expect something you can get from Prawn Paste Chicken's fragrance. However, its more like home cooked dishes that includes, pepper, soy sauce and some MSG for its marinate.

Chicken Wings - $1.20 Each

If you are talking about the plates of Bee Hoon, I would say that they did really have the old school plain taste with QQ texture.

Bee Hoon Mee

 Beats me regarding the long queue but if you are looking for some simple and old school economical bee hoon, do not forget about Eng Kee. Where car parking lots are good enough, the only thing that turns one off may be the hot humid heat trap in the coffeeshop space after the afternoon sun shone so hard onto it.

Hajjah Mariam Cafe OK Nov 08, 2017   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malay | Halal

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/10/hajjah-mariam-cafe.html

Hajjah Mariam Cafe was recommended by my colleagues for its unqie dish - Nasi Ambeng. The dish is quite popular Javanese-Malay Cuisine seen during festive seasons and served on a tray sharing to up to 6 pax. It signifies togetherness and peace at meal times.

They are located in the basement of Westgate and payment counter and serving food are of different counter.

Nasi Ambeng is quite similar to nasi padang with me just that the ingredients or dishes are rather fix. It consists of a good amount of fragrant white rice for the number of pax sharing, served with meat, vegetables, fried coconut flesh, sambal goreng and other dishes.

Great Portion for 2

It was my first time tasting Ambeng and will never be the last. I like the way where the portion is being served in the old school metal tray that give me good memories of childhood. Portion of rice might me too much for me but I'm save by my friend who can really take the amount of rice. Coconut flesh, Ah Zhar, tampe and as well as bagedil was given in 2 parts proportionally. For the middle portion, you can choose to have the choice of beef or chicken or even both. The meat was cooked long enough and was fork tender.

Duet Ambeng Standard - $17

Duet Ambeng Standard - $17

 
It was a stomach filling meal with great satisfaction. My favourite item other than the 2 meats on the plate is none other than this potato, bagedil, a must have in most of my halal meals. Nasi Ambeng is really worth a try although the price may be a step over here.
