Recently, I and my cousins went to the fairly well-known "Strictly Pancakes" after hearing many reviews from different people!

Opened daily with ample supply of pancakes for the pancake lovers like us, not only the pancakes are delicious, the atmosphere of the whole environment is so cosy and relaxing for gathering/meet-ups with friends.

Even though the price might be a little too steep for normal pancakes, I think the environment has increase the value fairly too.

We ordered a custom made pancakes with rum & raisin butter and maple syrup (of course) and another plate of Garlic Leeking Mushrooms (thick pancakes that are filled with leeks in it) with garlic butter and maple syrup. And of course, 2 plates of pancakes were not even enough to fill 3 stomachs so we ordered another custom pancakes with bacon & mushrooms.

Oh, did I mention that I extremely love the garlic butter?

As a savory person, I prefer more salty or spicy food rather than sweet. However, I really like the pancakes there with the normal rum & raisin butter and maple syrup too.

I would definitely try out the sweet pancakes in the future when I visit the store again.

Nice and cosy, I like!

ORTU @ Borgata! Smile Oct 14, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Pasta

Thank you OpenRice for ORTU to Borgata, I enjoyed the meal. lol

For those who do not know, Borgata is a very homely Italian restaurant located at the stretch of Clarke Quay's bars and clubs along River Valley Road. I was quite pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant to be so homely in such rowdy environment. The interior is sweetly decorated and the staff are friendly.

The different pastas and pizzas that were served to us were awesome and I especially love the latter! Psst, I have a fetish on thin-crust pizza so if you like thin-crust too, go try their pizzas!

However, I think the most special thing about this particular restaurant is they take special orders and make an unique pasta/pizza right for you! Ain't it cool? Not many places offer this skill and I really felt very important when I saw the specially made dishes for us OpenRicers.

By the way, I love their desserts: molten chocolate cake and tiramisu. THE TIRAMISU IS ESPECIALLY QUIRKY! It was the most cool tiramisu that I ever tasted, with a tad of orange taste and crunchy nuts that added to the layer of taste. Oh, and look at the molten chocolate! The waiter will just set the fire on it and let it burn. The burnt crust taste especially good with hot chocolate cake. Yum yum! I like! (P/S: I have a thing with desserts. Heehee)

Not a pleasant experience Cry Oct 13, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
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.

Whee! I have been wanting to post this up since MONTHS ago but I can't find the time to do so. Haha.

Anyway, in case you didn't know... Gelare organized a Gelare's FB fan day to gather all the Gelare fans to enjoy a privileged promotion of half-price waffle ice-cream! lol

Awesome not?

I wish they could organize more of these promotions though, so that I can gorge myself and die as a pig but do not have to wait till Tuesday promo. mad Just kidding. tongue

Look at the cookie and cream ice-cream with the "thick-skinned" waffle with chocolate sauce sliding down the ice-cream... The best commoners' indulgence!

BA CHOR MEE Smile Oct 02, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Food Court | Kids-Friendly

Recently, I had a meet up with an old friend at Northpoint for dinner. Due to the lack of money, the most "expensive" good food we could eat is at the food court at basement 2. mad

To my surprise, I thought Ming Fa Noodles were a new food stall because I don't even remember it was there! Nevertheless, its promotion of its ba chor mee set appeals to me. Heehee. Around $6 for a set meal of Ba Chor Mee + Soup + Ngyo Hiang, quite a good deal I would say for a meal at shopping centre.

Not exactly those kind of delicate dishes, but something that you can eat comfortably without caring about dining etiquette with a full stomach at the end of the meal. Delicious and affordable noodles plus the oily small mouthful of ngyo hiang. YUMMEH!!!!!!!!!
