Jajangmyeon (Blackbean sauce noodle) has always been a common food eaten by Korean. You can practically see the actor and actress eating it in every single show. Being an avid Korean food lover, I have been craving for delicious Jajangmyeon and Tang Su Yuk.  

Tae Woo was located in level 3 of The Central. The restaurant was really cosy and quiet to dine in. You will be served the traditional buckwheat tea and Korean side dishes upon seated. Though there isn’t much variety being served in the restaurant, the food was really decently nice.  

Upon ordering, the food came within 10 minutes bof wait. We order the Jajangmyeon, tang su yuk and fried dumping to try. 

 

The Jajangmyeon’s serving was quite big for this price. For diners with smaller eating capacity can choose order 1 serving and add an additional $2 for extra noodles to share. The combination of chewy noodles with the thick Jajang sauce, it was really mind-blowing. During my visit, every table order this dish. It’s definitely a must order!!  

 

Jajangmyeon ($12)

 Eating purely Jajangmyeon may be too boring, so why not order some tang su yuk to go with it. The crispy pork served with sweet and sour sauce makes it a very appetizing dish. It makes you crave for more. One tip while eating this dish is to prevent over-coating the pork cubes with the sauce
to prevent feeling too “jerlat” (too sick of the dish).  

 

Tang Su Yuk ($26)

The fried dumplings are crispy and non-oily. It was great that they are non-oily thus reduces you guilty of eating too oily food. However, the filling within tend to be too little.  

 

Fried Dumplings ($8)

If you are craving for decent Korean Chinese food at an affordable price, why not give Tae Woo a try. I believe you would not regret visiting.

Non Entrée Desserts, a name popular for serving its unique and interesting desserts. It was located in Rangoon Road where there are an uprising number of cafes sprucing up in the same vicinity. It takes about 10 minute walk from Farrer Park Mrt station.

 
Non Entrée Desserts was located beside a condominium, away from the rest of the café. It has a very brightly-coloured door for easy recognition.

 
It does not have any fanciful interior, only simple decoration that gives an industrial vibe.  

You will be tempted by the prettily decorated cakes in the display. This is what happen to my friend and I, hoping that we have enough tummy and money to indulgence in these delights. 

 

 
There are also a variety of ice cream flavour for diner to choose . 

 
In this café, it serves only desserts and beverage. There is a wide selection of desserts to choose – Cakes, waffles, ice cream, etc. I love how they display their menu. It was in a photo frame for easy referencing and acts as a decoration.

 
We have order a Matcha Avalanche, a Rubber Ducky, a lemon tart and a pot of tea (Sakura) to share. Despite the place being crowded, it was not noisy. You can have a easy time having small talks and chill around with friends.

 
Rubber Ducky consists of wrapped “exotic ducky sorbet” with the crème fraiche pudding. It was topped with chewy sago pearls and fresh mango puree. To create the bubbles for the rubber duck to swim in, the cloud was made from lemongrass. The entire desserts taste like a mango sorbet within a pudding. Delicious and sour~ Love the cute presentation of this dessert.

 

 
Lemon Tart was pretty decent. The tart base was crispy and buttery. The baked lemon custard was sweet and sour. A nice blend of sweet-sour taste. Those big white droplets are actually solidified sugar. As we are not a fan of overly sweet food, we removed these droplets before consuming.

 
Matcha Avalanche was our favourite. The cake was soft and fluffy. Upon cutting, thick and warm matcha lava oozes out of the cake. You can even see red beans within. Love this slightly bitter and sweet dessert.  In case you are wondering what was included in the dessert, it consists of warm matcha green tea lava with azuki beans flowing onto smokey roasted green tea gelato, crunchy almond nougatine and chocolate soil.

 

 
Non Entrée Desserts really serve cute and delicious desserts. Despite it being slightly in accessible, I will definitely revisit for their yummy desserts.

For anyone visit Hong Kong would definitely has heard about Tai Cheong Bakery which is super famous for their egg tarts. They have opened a permanent store at Takashimaya’s food hall on 1 July 2016.

Just like the famous Jenny Biscuit from Hong Kong, Tai Cheong has drawn crowd queuing for it too.

Tai Cheong Bakery sells three different product- Egg Tarts, Chicken Pie and Cocktail Bun. The Egg Tarts in Singapore goes for $7.60 for 4 pieces, Chicken Pie $2.80 per piece and Cocktail Bun at $1.80 per piece

 

 

 

 
Although Tai Cheong Bakery is not Halal-Certified; it contains no pork or lard. I must say, the egg tart was really delicious and make me craving for more. My friend queues for 45 mins for these delights.

The tart base was really buttery and crispy while the egg custard was softy and yummy. It was fragrant and not too sweet. The combination is fabulous.  

 

 

 

 
These delights really worth your calories and money. They are delicious and consider “cheap” for their taste.

Masizzim, which specialize in Korean meat stews and pancakes has reached Singapore. Masizzim means delicious stew.  It is conveniently located in 313 Somerset. There is a variety of Korean food to choose from – rice balls, Korean stew, Egg roll and more...

 
The entire dining space was spacious with kpop songs being played throughout. By about 9pm, you will realize that the staff would be starting to clean up the place
Korean Signature Stew is their specialties given their shop name. To order their stew, it is simple.
Step 1: Choose beef, pork or spicy chicken
Step 2: Soy or Spicy from Levels 1 to 4
Step 3: Choose noodles – Korean style udon or glass noodles
Step 4: Choose optional add ons such as cheese, toppoki, or extra noodles 

In this visit, we have chosen the spicy chicken stew with spicy level of 1 with glass noodles. I must say that the stew is very different from those served in other Korean restaurants as this version was much drier. You can scoop out any soup. In the stew, it consist of toppokki, chicken, glass noodles and radish. The meats are well marinated and tender. The glass noodles were my favourite as they are chewy, soft and springy~ I would prefer a more soupy version.  

 
The Korean stew comes with two bowls of brown rice.

 
To quench our thirst, we have order a grapefruit yogurt. It comes with alcohol version or non-alcohol. For us, we have chosen the non-alcoholicversion.  The taste was really refreshing. It tastes sweet with tinge of sourness from the yogurt. The serving was also huge as it allows us to pour six small cups. Value for $$ for taste and huge serving. 

 
Many of my friends are egg lovers, so we have ordered Tuna Seaweed Egg Roll  and Honey Mustard Cheese Egg Roll.

The egg roll was really soft and fragrant. For the tuna seaweed version, it was drizzled with ketchup sauce. Within the egg roll, it was filled with tuna and seaweed. The tuna and seaweed generally taste bland, but the ketchup helps to enhance the taste. 

 
My favourite egg roll goes to honey mustard cheese egg roll. The honey mustard sauce makes the egg roll tastes more moisturize while the cheese within give a chewy texture. It was a good combination. 

 
Food always tastes nicer when you are involved in the making. That’s why we have chosen the Crabmeat & Roe Rice Ball & Anchovy Rice Ball to try.  You will be served with a bowl rice together with the ingredients. The steps to making the rice balls are easy. 
Step 1: Put On Gloves
Step 2: Mix Well
Step 3: Mould into Rice balls and enjoy. 

 
Both rice ball taste great. For the crabmeat and roe version, you can taste bit of crabmeat in each rice ball. For the anchovy rice balls, you can taste anchovy in each bite. The anchovy is crispy and slightly more salty thus it gives more flavour and texture. This is also the reason why I prefer anchovy. 

 
All in all, it is worth visiting Masizzim for a try of different style of Korean cuisine in a cozy, convenient and spacious dining space.

Hidden Cafe Near NUS Clementi Smile Jun 17, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Bars/Lounges | Steaks and Grills

Cheng's Gourmet Food Bar is located along the same stretch of shophouses which is a popular night-owl haunt like Fong Seng Nasi Lemak, Al Amaan… It was great news for students studying at NUS or living in Clementi area. It was located just beside the kent Ridge Bus Terminal. 

The café has undergone a recent revamp.  I love how quiet and cosy the place gives. You do not have to rush your meals and you have the luxury to have catch-up session over at the cafe.

There are two different menu – morning and evening to offer a larger variety of food. 

After a struggle of trying to decide what to eat, we set down for Smoked Duck Quesadillas, Yuan-Yang Fries, Gula-Mela Hotcakes and Ultraviolet Floral Cooler.  

 
Ultraviolet Floral Cooler ($6.20) was really gorgeous. It changes colour from sapphire blue, to purplish pink upon mixing in the ice. The drink has sweet and tangy flavour. I believe it is the lemon juice on the ice that helps change the acidity of the drink. 

 

 
Smoked Duck Quesadillas ($14) was one of our favourite.  The cheey coupled with thin slices of smoked duck was really delicious. It tastes really great as the smoked duck does not have a very “raw duck taste” and the meat was really tender. 

 
Yuan-Yang Fries ($14) consist of truffle fries and sweet potato fries. It gives us the best of both worlds. The fries were crispy and well-marinated. We preferred the sweet potato fries as it is sweeter and crispier.

 
Gula-Mela Hotcakes ($14.50) is another delicious yummy dish. The pancake was thick and fluffy. Couple with the Gula Melaka sauce, it was heavenly. Best of all, it was does not give a “jerlat” feel. 

 
West-side residents don’t miss out this “hidden café”. It serves really delicious food in a cosy environment.
