Kelong Seafood Smile Jun 22, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Seafood

It's been a while since I visit No Signboard Seafood restaurant, hence recently I decided to recommend the place once again for our weekly family dinner. Despite the misleading name being Kelong - which is located at Robertson Walk - is no kelong at all, with no canal nor river in its vicinity. Yet, this restaurant do serves good food, especially their speciality - seafood.

 

 

 

 
Recommended for family gatherings; they have a few semi-private areas as well, but be sure to make reservations early.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Shark's fin
 
Spending per head: Approximately $20(Dinner)

Good food, Greater service Smile Jun 21, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Burgers and Sandwiches

After a fun, fulfilling day exploring Sentosa's newest attraction - Adventure Cove, as well as S.E.A Aquarium which features the world's largest aquarium, one is definitely expected to be hungry. If not, your stomach would probably tell you otherwise.

With a humble beginning as a Dallas burger joint, Chili's has seen developed and expanded with restaurants situated all around the globe. Despite having four outlets nestled at major shopping malls locally, it was actually my first time having Chili's, partially because of the huge quantity of negative reviews about both their food and services. However, since the birthday girl has made the choice, I went on with it.

I am sure my avid readers would know that I don't usually start reviewing on desserts, but when I do, it means that it is real good. And that is the case for Chili's Molten Chocolate Cake (S$15) - a huge, satisfying classic French dessert topped with chocolate-encased vanilla ice cream. I am sure everyone knows what is the best part - warm chocolate fudge flowing out gently. So much so that Todd Wilbur, an American cookbook author decides that this is worth "cloning" into his bestseller titled "Top Secret Recipe".

If you are a molten chocolate cake lava, be sure not to miss out this.

 
Tostada Chips (S$8.00) is all filled with crunch and crisp, and is simply addictive. Served with their flavourful home-made salsa, I wonder if anyone has the willpower to stop just at one chip. Well.. it is not me, for sure.

 
Besides a wide variety of burgers, pasta, quesadillas & fajitas and Chili's signature tantalising grilled backribs, classic chicken such as Crispy Honey-Chipotle Chicken Crispers® (S$25.00) makes a good dinner as well. Tender chicken meat are marinated by honey and chipotle, a clever combination of sweet and sour flavours, with a hint of spiciness. It is completed with a corn cob and fries. For small eaters, this dish could actually fill two persons.

 
Seafood lovers like the birthday girl herself might want to opt for Chipotle Salmon (S$28.00) - salmon filet seasoned with Southwestern spices with a smoky chipotle cream sauce. It is served with rice and roasted jalapeno & corn salsa. Not exactly amazing for the price though, if you asked me.

 
All in all, my visit to Chili's was a really pleasant one, completed with good food and greater services. I wouldn't comment much on the other outlets, but the one at Resort World Sentosa has gotten my vote.

Highly Recommended Jap Food Smile Jun 19, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Ramen

Men-ichi Kyoto located at Yishun's Northpoint serves one of the best ramen I have ever had. Other great Japanese cuisine on the menu includes a la carte items such as fried gyoza, sashimi and soft shell crab, and promotion bentos and value-for-money sets, which oftenly include a main, side, together with either chawanmushi or miso soup.

 

 
The queue is a testimony for its popularity. Highly recommended. lol

Hidden Gem in the East Smile Jun 17, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes | Ice Cream and Gelato

The eastern side of Singapore is somewhere that I would rarely head to. Firstly, I reside in the west and secondly, I barely see a reason why should I travel to the other side less for a good reason. Well, they say good thigns are worth travelling for, I guess good ice cream is one valid reason.

Located at Simpang Bedok, somewhere about a short 5-minute walk away from Tanah Merah MRT, BLIC Ice Cream Cafe is well-known for its good service it has done for the residence at Tampines, serving authentic homemade ice-cream and sorbets of various creative flavours, such as SCaM (Soursop, calamansi and martini), Seasalt Malt, Dino Milo, Mao Shan Wang (Durian King) and the list goes on, reaching unimaginable flavours with a local twist, take for example - Sambal Sorbet and Chocolate Chip Chicken Rice.

Prices are affordable as well, with a scoop of classic flavour and premium flavour going as low as S$3.20 and S$5.20 respectively. Diners can also opt for BLIC's speciaility milkshakes, waffle or brownie combination as well, dosed with a lethal satisfaction for your sweet tooth.

 
All in all, BLIC proves to be a hidden gem in the east (and I bet that there are many more for myself to discover), as well as a great hangout place to chill-out after a dinner at the nearby Simpang.

Fries Galore Smile Jun 17, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fast Food | Burgers and Sandwiches

Established by the owners of Awfully Chocolate, EwF is slightly different from its origins, or rather a spin-off from the main branches of Everything with Fries. Nestled at the ground floor of Orchard Central, EwF is a conceptualised fast-food outlet decorated with the simple elegance of pink and white furnitures. As I was saying, EwF is a fast-food outlet, like MacDonalds or MOS Burger, hence it is all free sitting. Having said that, EwF is usually packed especially during meal times, so do expect hungry people waiting to occupy your table when you are more than halfway done.

The thing I like about Everything with Fries (as well as EwF) is that they make their food and sauces from scratch, using only the freshest ingredients. Besides their burger classics (S$6.90 - S$7.90), such as Battered Fish Burger and Slider, EwF also serves unique creations such as my personal favourite Har Jeong Kai, which is whole boneless chicken thigh marinated with Cantonese prawn paste, as well as the newest addition of Pork Belly Burger.

 
Thick, juicy marinated pork belly served between two caramelised burger buns. Oh, what good gracious! I wouldn't admit that I'm a health conscious person, but for health's sake, I decided to remove the fatty layer. Okay, I admit that I stole a bite... just a bite. I mean who could ever resist the succulent bite of the best portion.

Bacon Cheese Omelette Burger (S$6.90) is a popular choice for people who adores brunch. Good ol bacon and eggs complemented with the melted cheese, again - this is not exactly healthy, but oh well. Everything with Fries is not called Everything with Fries for no reason, at here, pairing the burger with your favourite flavour of fries (together with a regular drink, meal for S$9.90) is the most sensible thing to do. Choose from five variety of fries, such as garlic, curry and sour cream & onion.

 
As a sister company of Awfully Chocolate, expect a decent selection of desserts, like the nutella tart and vanilla crepe. All in all, EwF is a fuss-free fast-food place, great for gatherings, or perhaps a quick meal in between office hours.
