Not a pleasant experience Cry Oct 13, 2010

Categories : Japanese | Ramen

I admit, the setting of this restaurant is really attractive and I can't help but to think that the interior designer of this store is really smart to make a open-view of the restaurant while people are walking up and down of the escalator near it and to and forth outside. Every time I pass by, I said to myself that I have to go try their food someday! It is really tempting.

However, after trying... I don't think I would make a visit there again.

2 Reasons of not going to this restaurant again:

bowl Weird service:
I have no idea how they trained their waiters/waitresses. When I went there with my boyfriend at dinner time (around 7pm), there were still a few empty tables of six and the waitress that was serving us told us to sit with another pair of customers just because "it is dinner time so...."

We were closely packed between two pairs of customers with a very narrow space to walk through. Even though their service is readily available, the waitresses seem to be quite blur and do not get the situation well. Boyfriend made a quirky request to have some sugar because he does not drink the plain ocha... unless it is sweet. The manager who happened to take the request looked shocked and puzzled (as if there's no sugar in the kitchen -.-) and the waitress took our sugar to other tables. It was totally not that kind of service that I expected.

For customer service to be like this made me felt unimportant and not respected as a customer. I am fairly reluctant to pay for service charge, especially after they mistook our request as other table's.

bowl Food is not as nice as I expected
Ordered the Curry Cheese ramen set with gyoza (main course + side dish + hot/cold ocha) @ S$15.90 (without GST and service charge) and he ordered Spicy ______ ramen set with fried chicken pieces.

I almost fainted when I tasted the gyoza. There's ginger in the meat filling instead of the usual vegetables, ALL meat and ginger, how nice can it be to someone like me who do not like to eat ginger?

Limited choices of ramen and their ramen is only so-so too. Nothing special nor heavenly delicious. I would probably prefer thicker curry base with udon instead AND WITHOUT BEANSPROUTS.

Stick to the fishes OK Dec 30, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Restaurant | Seafood | Kids-Friendly

Something must have gone wrong with me that day to order something that is not fish and chips in their menu. Haha.

I have absolutely no idea why they would include dishes that they cannot make it delicious into the menu. I still love their fish & chips, but never I am going to order something else than that anymore.

Play safe.

The seafood baked rice was... quite terrible. sad

Oh, I like the pizza though. It's quite one of its kind. Not bad tasting it.

Awfully chocolate-y banana OK Nov 10, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Desserts and Cakes | Ice Cream and Gelato

When we think of celebrating birthdays, there is ALWAYS a cake to cut!

The problem now is, which cake to choose from? Well, a lot of people are chocolate lovers... so it was not such a big hassle to choose the flavor except that if you do not want the plain chocolate only, the choice of other flavors to match the former is crucial.

I am not a big fan of mixtures in food/drinks because I think it loses the originality of the food so maybe that is why I prefer the plain Chocolate rather than the Chocolate Banana cake from Awfully Chocolate.

Nevertheless, Awfully Chocolate's chocolate cakes are still as awesome! lol

With the taste of Mum's cooking OK Nov 10, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fusion | Halal

At first when I saw the catering service's name is called "Mum's Kitchen", I was already anticipating the quality of food and the touch of Mum's cooking (it's not that I want someone who cooks like my mom because she doesn't really cook much, but I refer to the essences of homemade cooking that makes food a little bit more humane).

The food definitely is good even though some dishes were not to my liking. Probably because it was cold already.

I especially love the noodles which has an unique spices kind of taste that I never tasted before. It is more awesome than mee goreng! And of course those little snacks like scallops and nuggets are always girls' favorite! lol

Virgin Experience @ Bakerzin OK Aug 17, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bakery

Due to my grumpiness and sour feeling that a few of my friends deserted me on my grand opening + mini birthday celebration last month, two of them dated me out to Bakerzin for a belated meet up which I have been ranting over and over again. Lol. I know I sound creepy and clingy now. Haha. Anyway! All 3 of us ordered the set meal -> Main course + Soup of the day + Drink and thanks to my friend’s voucher, we get to eat one of their side bites.

Frankly speaking, I have never eaten at Bakerzin restaurant before and I only knew about their cakes (people I know usually will buy birthday cakes there) so I was quite amazed when I saw the menu. Pardon me for my “mountain-turtle-ness”.
The environment of Bakerzin @ Northpoint is quite nice, despite the service was not what I expected to be “good”. I guess the trainees need more training. :\ So yup, here comes our dishes! The first dish is usually the superb “Soup of the Day” which I usually love <3, but this time round, this soup taste more like pasta sauce than “soup”. -insert sad face- Not really my type of appetizer so I just skipped to my main course: Ham & Bacon Creamy Pasta (it has a frigging long name that I can’t really remember)!!!

The pasta is quite delicious and absolutely for cheese / creamy sauce lovers! I like how they sprinkle the mini cheese strips onto the pasta and it looks really pretty with the layers of white in my plate. Least to say, it is extremely filling. I can’t even finish up the whole plate, though it might also be because of the overwhelming creaminess that got me to stop.

All three of us were feeling too full to finish up the pizza that we got for our free side bite! I only managed to eat one piece of it and it taste really unique!

My friend said the crust taste like curry puff crust and I agree! It’s like pizza ingredients in a dissected curry puff! :X Not bad as a side, but I am never going to order anything else if I already had my main course! Hahahahaha… But I will definitely order my favorite part of the course – DESSERTTTTTTT next time round!

I won’t mind going back there to try out their desserts and hang around with my friends there. It’s quite a nice place to have mini gatherings. You know, girls have a thing with “high tea time” and Bakerzin is one of the most convenient place for us since it has so many outlets around Singapore.
