Gingerly Chicken Rice Smile Jan 16, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Coffeeshop | Chicken Rice

I must say again that Bugis area is truly a gem in the middle of the city! there are quite good stalls around and this is one of them - although of course, not as fragrant and popular with long queues of other hainan restos.

my friend favorited this place to go for the generous portion and chicken pieces. True to form, in the mere fan-only place it was full with people to order rice dishes from the menu.

The rice was steamed piping hot but like most rice it has only a tinge of flavor from the chicken broth. However, the chicken meat made it all up as it was one of the softest chicken steamed breast I know! There was also bits of ginger that made it different than the rest and those sour bites pickles which is good to mix with the rice!smile

Although the place is quiet, and you feel like owning the entire place, Hanis is a cafe which also joins Starbucks to open 24 hours in this branch.

Portion to fit a king in the evening (where you should eat like a pauper instead) the set meal consisted of the dessert, which first I thought was warm bread to accompany the appetizer cream soup and the main meal and a choice of drink. And garlic bread too!

The turkey set meal for $13.90 included the vegetables and potato as your carbo fix! The meat, was just like any other chicken/white meat as if you're curious what's the difference. The meat was not as hot and juicy and soft, but it was paired with a good complement of fruit jam (strawberry or blueberry) to smear all over with eating your poultry.chopstickchopstick

Eating this hearty meal the day before war (read: exam) gave a sense of fulfillment and releasing the relaxing endorphines when I ate the dessert which I thought was the warm bread for the soup - my favorite, CREAM PUFF! IT WAS HUGEEEE FILLED WITH sous cream, just the way I like it. It made my night at least smile

Authentic thai fried rice Smile Jan 13, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Coffeeshop

Pretty legit and authentic for a mere hawker centre stall, a new favorite of mine after the Thai Lion Kitchen at TB market! tongue Although a feat to come about around here.

The brunch hour called a heavy portion for rice, which the Thai fried rice looked enticing enough to give it a shot which the price should be around $5-6! With shreds of carrot and cucumer as the fine setting on the plate, the thai fried rice was cooked on spot, promising that it would be served warm and ready without it being sticky after prolong hours.It also had quite a small queue out.

Top of the rice when served was the touffed up floss which I would believe its pork. (but you probably can request beef I suppose) and it gave a sweeter mix, although the floss portion should have more as the rice (salty, just as i like it) was like a mountain!mad

Should I be incorrect, this Guan chee chain is pretty famous for its pork delicacies. Coming down with my tourist friend, I was craving for samchan, the ugliest most sinful part of all pork chops a shop can offer, with it being fried and basically it was the skin. mad

Ordered a mix of meat platter for two, consisting from the roasted duck with the delicious crispy skinsmile, red grilled ones to the fried ones of my favorite ( I dont know the name, just see the pics will do, no Hehechopstick ) and smartly, they offered if I wanted vegetables. I forgotten should we had vegetable platter of greens, we should cut down the meat portion for just one because we had another one to share!

Rice was covered in their sweet duck sauce. Although it would be much better for the meat to be warm and not cold with the rice, but the vegetables were just reboiled and was streamed with oyster sauce and fried garlic on top.

The variety is fantastic so to say, but a bowlTIP! is to get extra sweet dipping sauce for the meat because one saucer is not enough (and they know its two portions, duh!) I wont have to move back and forward.

For $30 altogether,
it was tad pricey (as I thought it we could be just eating at a resto instead of food court) but the meat platter was huge too!
come to think of it, the rice portion was pretty huge too.

sweet pour (poor) pork Smile Jan 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Hawker Centre

if it only was that the rice was all warmed up but the sweet sour pork which of course, is cooked with the sauce all over and it's cold when I received it because it should've been cooked out earlier in the day, a pop in the microwave solved the problem because I tapaod.

Generous in the rice portion, I had left a lot of rice left because there wasn't a bit left of the pork. Ordered a sweet sour pork rice to go for $4, this mini wok space is also famous for other rice specialties.

Pork was chewy and the sweet sour sauce was flavorful with the paprika and tomato bits!

but then, the price of course was higher compared to other stalls around the same vicinity. Although this was the usual standard of rice dishes, I object where it's a market and I can get for lesser price tongue
