Under Expectation Cry Jun 11, 2014

Categories : Taiwanese | Bubble Tea/ Tea

ShareTea is originated from Taiwan, the pioneer of the bubble tea. Claimed as 'Taipei No. 1', they have various selection of drinks, from classic milk tea to ice cream floats. The queue was quite long when I went there, but it didn't take long to serve my order.

 
Classic Pearl Milk Tea (medium size) - $4. We can choose our sugar level. I chose half sugar level, just like I always did in any other bubble tea stalls. But, I felt like I had made the wrong choice. Share Tea's half sugar tasted weird in my mouth. Seriously, it's really annoying! In Surabaya, I used to choose half sugar level whenever I bought ShareTea, and it tasted so good. Why in Singapore, it tasted way more terrible? At the end, I ended up throwing the tea to the dustbin, unfinished. Is it just my tongue that went numb, or ShareTea milk tea in Singapore tasted weird? Ah, next time maybe I will just choose full sugar, or stick to another drink.

Disappointment Cry May 26, 2014

Gong Cha Milk Matcha Tea - $3.20. I added pearl topping for 30 cents, because for me it's not complete without having pearl. Unfortunately, the drink was a huge disappointment. Choosing 50% sugar, it tasted very weird, like liquid soap huffy. I didn't know what cause this drink to be very wrong. At the end, I just ate the pearl on its own without drinking the tea. Not gonna order this again!

Overrated Cry May 13, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Western | Restaurant | Pasta | Steaks and Grills | Halal | Kids-Friendly

Eighteen Chefs has just opened their latest branch in AMK Hub! Located next to Cathay Cineplex, Eighteen Chefs was basically a self-service restaurant. You write down your order, make a payment at cashier, pick up your cutlery, and wait for your food to be served.

 
Water is freeflow here, but please help yourself for it.

 
Fresh Mushroom Pasta - $10.80. Spaghetti in classic French bechamel sauce with fresh mushrooms. My friend said it didn't look like exactly like in the menu. Tasted just average.

 
Chicken Sausage Cheese-Baked Rice - $7.80. This was taken from their 'Be Your Own Chef' menu. Here, we can pick our base (cheese-baked rice/pasta), sauce, main ingredient, and optional top-up ingredient(s). There are over 8 kinds of sauce (I chose tangy tomato sauce) and 12 kinds of ingredients (I chose chicken sausage). The price of this menu depends on what main ingredient you choose. The combination of tangy tomato sauce and cheese turned to be great. The portion was quite fulfilling, although I found only 3-4 pieces of chicken sausage inside.

 
Waffle with Blueberries & Vanilla Ice Cream - $7.50. Plain waffle with blueberry sauce, whipped cream, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The appearance looked not so appetizing yeah? The waffle was super tough, it was very hard to cut with the knife. The amount blueberry sauce poured was also very little. The only thing I enjoyed was the ice cream, which surprisingly combined nicely with blueberry sauce.

 
Black Beauty - $4.90. Homemade chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce, vanilla, whipped cream, and chocolate ice cream. Apart from its mouthwatering presentation, which was Instagram-worthy, the taste was a disappointment. It strangely tasted like charcoal. Again, the ice cream was the lifesaver of this dish.

Verdict : the desserts here failed to impress me. I think this place is a bit overrated. Many people queue up for it, but even after my dining experience here, I still don't get what's so special about this restaurant. Thankfully no service charge here, because I found that their service was not really friendly and nice. So here is my experience: I mistakenly returned back the entire order sheets when I was paying at the cashier, instead of just mine (I didn't know that I only needed to give them mine, and leave the other sheets on my table). The staff then asked me to return the other sheets back to my table, without saying 'please' at all (which I considered impolite, but not actually rude either) huffy I know it was my fault, but hello, could you at least use 'please' in your sentence? I would gladly do it if you asked me in a friendly and polite manner. They should improve more on the service.

Probably Will Not be Back Again Cry May 12, 2014

Categories : Japanese | Bakery

I was interested to try upon seeing the cute petite size of the donut.

 

 
8 pcs Petit Doughnut - $4.80. I decided to mix all flavors except sweet potato (the flavors were chocolate, raspberry cream cheese, custard, red bean, and 3 others which I forget). I like their Merlion-shaped doughnut with custard filling in it (doesn't it look cute?). However, my friend and I agreed that it was a letdown. The doughnut was not served fresh, it was rather cold instead, therefore the dough was not soft. Price was a bit steep considering the small size.

Overall, I probably would not give a second visit, as I was disappointed by the quality of their doughnut.

Indonesian Street Food OK Mar 07, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indonesian

Bf brought me to a place where he said he had a very good mee soto there. When I heard mee soto, I thought the place sold Malay food. Then he added that the place's called Jtown. Straight away what popped inside my head was that 'J' should be related to Japan. But wait, Japanese restaurant serving mee soto? Sounds legit. But I was completely wrong when I knew that Jtown was an Indonesian restaurant, and 'J' actually referred to Jakarta!

Jtown sells Jakarta street food like mie ayam (chicken noodle), mie bakso (beef meatball noodle), gado-gado, and martabak manis (sweet Indonesian pancake). The menu is not really extensive, but the price is reasonable.

 
Bakmie Ayam - $5
chicken noodle
I opted for a simple bowl of bakmie ayam. According to them, the noodle is handmade and freshly made everyday. Unfortunately, the seasoning didn't really suit my tastebuds.

 
Mee Goreng - $5.30
fried noodle
Bf ordered mee goreng, which I thought they would use Indomie at first but no haha. Beside chicken, they also put mushroom and half boiled egg. Of course I helped him eating the mushroom lol.

 
Martabak Campur (large) - $6.20
indonesian pancake with mixed topping of chocolate and cheese
We call this 'martabak manis' or 'terang bulan'. Bf had tried this on his previous visit and loved it. Beside chocolate and cheese, other toppings available are Ovomaltine and D24 durian (eww). The large size is actually equal to small size in Indonesian street food context haha.

Overall, I recommend this to fellow Indonesians in Singapore who are craving for Indonesian street food, especially martabak manis!
