MEDZS concept is about the same as Marche, just that MEDZS offers Mediterranean food (such as Greek, Moroccan, and Turkish food) while Marche offers Swiss food. This was my second visit to MEDZS. My first visit was only to buy their churros to sneak into the cinema haha oops (btw their churros was quite good plus cheap, seriously it's just $3.90, although it resembles youtiao a bit).

 
Tropical Paradise - $7.80
pineapple, apple, orange, and lemon
This drink is under 'Detoxifying Juice' section. Look at how the pulp's floating on the surface! This was my friend's order, no complain from her though.

 
Strawberry Smoothies - $7.50
strawberry, milk, and vanilla
When it comes to strawberry and milk, I'm totally a sucker! However, I think it's quite dear to pay such price for smoothies. And seriously, it's not really satisfying. The smoothies was hard to suck, it tasted too diluted for my liking. Hais, Smoothie King is just a few distance away.

 
MEDZS Signature Rainbow Cake - $6.90
It's undeniable that many people have been raving about MEDZS' rainbow cake. Ladyironchef even put this on Singapore's Top 8 Rainbow Cakes That You Must Try. Indeed, no regret ordering this! Served on a stone board, the cake looks tidy and visually pleasant. On top there's a slice of strawberry, two tiny chocolate sticks, and dollop of whipped cream, also accompanied by salted caramel and vanilla cream garnish. The cake was decent, it was moist with right amount of cream in between the layers. I like the vanilla cream, I don't mind them to pour it all over the cake lol.

 
Very neat is it? Did they slice it using a ruler? Haha.

I've tried MEDZS' desserts twice and all didn't disappoint. No service charge becomes another nice factor, despite that it's the staff who will deliver the food to your table. However, it's quite hard to catch staffs' attention. The waiting time was relatively slow, took like 25 minutes for my rainbow cake to come when I thought they would just slice and take it from the cake display! Fortunately it's all paid off within my first spoonful of the cake.

Ramen Paradise Smile Dec 21, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen

This place has drawn my attention since some time ago. Yesterday, I got a chance to try it. Ramen Champion concept is probably best described as 'food court', with 6 choices of ramen food stall. After seeing around, I decided to order my ramen from Shodai Kuji stall, which was just in front of my table (I did exploring already ok, it's not that I was lazy).

 
Upon arrival, we will be given an entry card. Don't lose it, as you will need it to order food, as to record your order(s) for payment later. A buzzer will also be given after ordering, signalling the time when your order is ready to collect. Self-service system is implemented here, therefore there's no service charge, only GST.

 
Triple Chashu Ramen - $16.80
Were I too greedy for ordering this? I also dunno. But for sure, no regret ordering this! Triple chashu represents three kinds of charshu used for this ramen (chicken thigh, pork belly and pork collar), all of them were outstandingly yummy. The thin noodle that I chose was springy. The egg was boiled just nicely, neither overcooked nor raw. The pork bone broth was slightly too salty for my liking though, or maybe this is one of Yokohama ramen characteristics? I'm no ramen expert.

Overall, I would like to recommend Ramen Champion for all ramen lovers out there. I still have 5 more stalls to try before I can figure out who's the champion. This means I should come back 5 more times! Ahh, I will never get enough of ramen...

Social Media Ice Cream Smile Dec 21, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Ice Cream and Gelato

While the Llaollao craze is still on, a new craze has appeared: Honey Creme craze! Honey Creme is situated at 313@Somerset (near taxi stand, previously it was Gong Cha), which is on the same building with Llaollao, which also means there are currently 2 crazes at the same place!

Honey Creme is originated from Taiwan, selling Korean-style soft serve ice cream as its specialty. It's been opened since like 2 months ago, and shame on me, yesterday was my first time trying it. Not because I never knew about its existence, but I'm the type of person that would rather wait some time for the craze to subside before trying. As you know, typical Singaporeans, everything also queue. I saw some pics and videos of the queue on Instagram, and my first thought was 'don't these people have something else to do aside of queue-ing over ice cream?'. My friend told me she was in the line for an hour...WHAT!!! To me surprise, there was no long queue as I had expected.

 
Comb Honey - $5.50
All menus here use vanilla soft-serve ice cream as the base (don't expect other flavors like chocolate, strawberry, etc.). For the Comb Honey, the ice cream is drizzled with honey. It's not my cup of tea. The honey hardened super fast one and it became sticky to my spoon until couldn't move.

 
Organic Cotton Candy - $5.50
Bf chose this and he's fascinated by the height of the cotton candy. I'm not really sure what's the best way to enjoy ice cream with cotton candy, but what bf did was that he finished the cotton candy first then ate the ice cream on its own haha.

 
Honey Comb - $5.90
Don't mistaken this with the previous Comb Honey. This one is served with chewy honey comb block.

 
Dark Chocolate - $5.50
No comment on this one. Tasted exactly like McDonald's Choco Top, just the ice cream wasn't fully covered with chocolate. Soft-serve ice cream with chocolate coating is not my kinda thing.

 
Caramel Popcorn - $5.50
This was my most favorite among all! It was fun crunching on the popcorn while the creaminess of the ice cream entered my mouth at the same time. The caramel sauce hit the right sweetness.

 
Verdict : Honey Creme got the insta-genic appearance, that's it. For me, it's just another McDonald's soft-serve ice cream taken to a whole new level by adding fancy toppings on it. The shop is rather cramped, but the plus thing is that they provide free-flow hot (bf said it's more like boiled water) and cold water. End of the rant, I declare that I would rather queue-ing over Llaollao downstairs coz it's more worth it.

Affordable French Dinner Smile Dec 09, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : French | Restaurant | Seafood | Steaks and Grills | Burgers and Sandwiches

Been wanting to eat at Saveur for a long time already, but every time I see people queue-ing outside the restaurant, it always turns me down. Today, the restaurant door was unusually closed, and it didn't look that crowded, so my friend and I decided to have our dinner there. As we opened the door and went in, I saw a machine to dispense the queue number (no reservation allowed at the Far East branch btw), and here I was thinking it would take so long. Moreover, there were some people on the waiting list already. But then the staff straight away led us to sit. Lucky us, first visit without waiting time hehe.

The place is not really spacious (the seats are really close to one another) and it's too crowded inside. The ambience actually looks nice with the chandeliers and elegant black color, but due to the noisiness, I guess it's not a suitable place for romantic dining. Talking about the menu, there were not many options to choose from, but the price is very attractive. French food is usually identical with high price, but thanks to Saveur, they have made it affordable.

Each of us ordered one dish from the main course selections and a glass of iced water. The staff kindly reminded us that warm/iced water is chargeable at 30cents. Our food came quite quickly, took less than 15 minutes...

 

 
Duck Confit - $12.90
duck confit served with mashed potato, sauteed shitake with parsley, orange segments and orange-infused natural jus
It must be one of the restaurant's best-seller dishes, since I saw every table ordering it. It kinda reminded me of Indonesian 'bebek goreng' (fried duck) haha. The duck was nicely fried, the outer skin was crispy and it was such a tender kind of meat. However, it was a bit too salty for my liking. The mashed potato was a perfection. It was so creamy and tasted differently from others I've tried before (different in a good way of course), and it blended nicely with the orange jus. The sauteed shitake mushroom was so-so though.

 
Chicken Rolade - $9.90
chicken thigh stuffed with foie-gras infused chicken farce, creamy basmati rice and parmesan sauce
It was my friend's order. Upon seeing the word 'foie gras', I was a bit doubtful to try it. She ensured me to try. I detected a bit of weird taste (maybe it was the thing?), but overall, it's not something that would make me refuse to give a second try. The rice was creamy and went well with the cheesy sauce.

Overall, it was a good experience trying French cuisine. I was delighted with the service as well, that's why I didn't mind paying 10% service charge. The service was prompt and friendly, the staffs always put a smile on their faces even though it was a busy evening. Definitely will come back!

K-Pop Buffet Smile Dec 01, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Buffet | Korean BBQ

It was a Sunday, and bf suddenly craved for Korean BBQ. There are so many restaurants serving Korean BBQ, be it buffet or ala carte. Thanks to Google and recommendations from local food bloggers, we finally decided to eat at K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet at Orchard Central.

Perched on the 7th floor of Orchard Central, this restaurant has indoor and outdoor area. If you choose to eat at outdoor, you can enjoy a great view of Orchard Road and its vicinity. As a K-Pop lover, I really like this place because they play K-Pop songs the whole time haha. There is also a big screen showing Korean variety shows, concert, or MV, but unfortunately it was off during our visit. There is a kind of queue machine, which will tell you whether there is still available seat. If there isn't any, you can leave your phone number, get your queue number, and they will call you once there is a vacant seat for you (keep your eye on your phone haha).

Included in the buffet are free-flow BBQ ingredients, cooked food, canned drink, rice, and fruits. The BBQ ingredients themselves are rich in variety. There are beef bulgogi, beef rib eye, pork belly, pork collar, spicy chicken, squids, prawns (just to name a few), all of which are marinated nicely. From the cooked food section, there are japchae (Korean glass noodle), pajeon (Korean pancake), and tteokbokki (Korean rice cake).

 
Instead of using charcoal grill, K.Cook uses non-sticky flat pan, so don't worry about the meat being charred quickly. The wide size of the pan allows us to put and grill many slices of meat at a time.

 
More kinds of meat being grilled

 
Fruit cocktails for the dessert

The service turned out to be good as well. The staffs were friendly and prompt, they immediately cleared our empty plates. Overall, I highly recommend this place for all Korean BBQ lovers. From as low as $14.90++, you can enjoy the scrumptious Korean BBQ buffet with a great ambience. Oh ya, there is 10% discount if you finish within an hour or below.

Buffet Price :
Lunch : Mon - Fri (11.30am - 3pm) / Sat, Sun, PH & PH eve (11.30am - 5pm)
Adult : $14.90++ / $24.90++
Child (4-12 years old) : $8.90++ / $18.90++
Dinner : Mon - Thu (5.30pm - 10pm) / Fri, Sat, Sun, PH & PH eve (5pm - 10pm)
Adult : $24.90++ / $26.90++
Child (4-12 years old) : $18.90++ (both)
