Dim Sum OK Dec 26, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Teochew | Dim Sum

 

 

 

 

 
My family wanted to dine in another Dim Sum Restaurant in the same shopping mall but there was very long queue. Hence, we went to Crystal Jade Dining Place to have Dim Sum instead.

The dining area was cosy and premium look, though I felt the lighting was slightly dim for dining. The staffs were very attentive, it seem that a staff was assigned to a table ready to refill the tea or clear the used plates. Everytime a new dim sum came, we were given new plates.

We ordered some Dim Sums and a plate of Fried Carrot Cake. The Fried Carrot Cake had "Wok Hei" aroma but the texture of the carrot cake was soft and mushy. The carrot cake though looked dark in colour, it was actually quite spicy. 

The Dim Sums such as Steamed Prawn Dumplings was good, it had fresh and spingy prawns. The Steamed Pork Ribs was average and not meaty. I felt that the marinate using fermented beans was only on the outer layer of the meat. 

Their chilli was very good tasting. The chilli was more of the spicy fermented bean taste with heavy saltiness. The staff told me that they are not selling the chilli separately.

Overall, the Dim Sums here was average taste. I liked the Steamed Prawn Dumplings but not the rest.

Mini Peanut Puff Smile Dec 26, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Bakery

 

 
Since Chinese New Year was coming soon, I bought another Mini Peanut Puff from Tai Thong Cake Shop in Chinatown. 

Mini Peanut Puff from Tai Thong Cake Shop cost slightly more than others, it cost $20 per box!

When I opened the box, I could smell the deep fried pastry aroma, it was not oily. The Mini Peanut Puff was nicely deep fried and had a golden brown color.

I liked the taste of the Mini Peanut Puff, the crispy skin was not powdery and the skin thickness was just right. The filling  had the right amount of sugar and roasted peanuts. My palate did not feel dry or sweeten after eating several Mini Peanut Puffs. 

Overall, I think this bakery has the best Mini Peanut Puff, though the prices are slightly higher, it was still worth to buy.

Apa Rojak OK Dec 26, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Food Court

 

 

 

 
After shopping at Westgate, I wanted to buy some snacks for supper. I came across this rojak stall in the foodcourt. The storefront looked attrative with a small lorry vehicle. 

I ordered the Apa Rojak at $4. The wait was about 5-10 minutes as the Rojak was freshly prepared. The ingredients like taupok and fritters were freshly toasted. 

The Rojak had a heavy aroma of penang style prawn paste. I liked the fishy smell but my mother said it was too heavy. The taste of the Rojak did not have such heavy prawn taste, instead it was a bit sourish. I saw the stall holder squeeze a whole lime into the Rojak when mixing. 

I liked this Rojak, it had different mouthfeel. There were crispiness from the taupok and fritters. There were also refreshing and juicy crunch from the green apple, cucumber and buang kwang. 

Overall, although the price was slightly high for a plate of Rojak, the taste was quite good.

6pc Classic Wings Set Cry Dec 26, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fast Food

 

 

 

 
Hearing how popular was Wingstop and its unique Fried Chicken, I went to Bedok to have a try. The Wingstop decor looked like a normal fastfood, the queue was short. 

I ordered the Teriyaki 6pc Classic Wings Set at $9.90, it came with a drink and 2 sides. The wait for the food to be ready was quite long, about 15 minutes. To my surprise, the 6 pieces Chicken Wings set was not 6 whole chicken wings but was break into 3 winglets and 3 drumlets. The size of winglets and drumlets was also quite small. 

The chicken wings smelt very nice with rich teriyaki sauce. The chicken wings were hot and crispy on the outside, but there was little meat. The teriyaki sauce was sweet and salty with a bit of caramel. However, I found that the taste of the teriyaki sauce was too salty. 

Overall, Wingstop Chicken Wings was not to my liking as the marinate sauce was too salty and the size of the wings were too small.

Gyoza Smile Dec 26, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese

 

 

 

 
There was a gyoza specialty store in Westgate. Whenever I walked pass this restaurant, I always can smell the pan frying of gyoza.

It was early evening and there was no queue. I went in to order the 1 dozen gyoza. The wait for the gyoza was quite long about 15 minutes to be ready.

The suace for the gyoza was quite strange, there was no vinegar or ginger provided or available. The only available sauce was their special soya sauce. I liked their special soya sauce. It tasted mild salty and oily, with some sweetness and spiciness. Seems like all in one sauce. 

The gyoza smell and tasted very good, crispy on the outside and piping hot, juicy minced meat inside. It did not have an oily mouthfeel. I liked the minced meat inside, there was some ginger mixed with the minced meat fillings and there was sweetness in the meat.

After eating the gyoza, my whole body and clothing smelt of pan fried gyoza. Hopefully, the restaurant can improved on their ventilation. 
 
Spending per head: Approximately $7.80(Dinner)
