Veggie galore Smile Jan 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Food Court

The best thing I like when looking at those mixed rice stalls is the fresh green vegetables that I do not miss the chance to eat my veggies on the particular day where they serve the greenest looking veggies ( shine with the oily sauce of course, long gone is the healthiness ) tongue) at the rice stalls.

This one was cooked just right, not making it too salty either for the sauce at a just right balance and the tofu was delicately cooked with mushroom clear gravy.

The rice was also on a generous portion. smile

Groupon Offer of FIsh palate! Smile Jan 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Seafood | Halal | Kids-Friendly

As said, the Groupon offer gives off 50% off the original price from $30 for getting a combo meal of soup and main course meal of lemon fresh herbs steamed fish with rice.

We were given soft drinks as complimentary drinks as part of it too.

The dish came at a very long time and to my surprise as it was my first time eating at Manhattan, rumor has it that their portion is fairly huge. To my dismay, it was in a special smaller bowl of wok, which I felt 'cheated' because of the discount given. I'm not so sure if this is the original portion size so Openricers, give a say if you order this steamed fish menu and it is this size.tongue

The pumpkin soup tasted bland. I added a load of salt and black pepper.

Taste however can't be cheated as the fish is very much softly cookedchopstick, dissolving in your mouth in an instant with the fresh appetizing herb sauce spritz with lemon!! Vegetables were boiled of carrots and brocolli in a small sized portion. The rice also, was in small portion.

Other than the service and portion, I have to give chopstickchopstickchopstick for the taste. It's goooood!

And a Japanese one some more

Well, its no surprise when Singapore is now bombarded with a lot of new Japanese franchises of eateries, and CoCo Ichibanya has taken a lot of attention with queues and tables in majority filled even during weekday dinners.

I wasn't enticed myself as I have a champion of my own in curry rice but my friend invited me for dinner here.

Why I wasn't enticed with it as first was because the sample dishes looked generally the same from any other kare raisu restos around - definitely you would be seeing pork chops and chicken breast cutlets around for sure.

I ordered the uniquely named clam in tomato sauce curry $13.90++ and the most interesting part, different than other places would be how you concote your own curry sauce. Choosing the curry base, spiciness, broth, and the rice to pick at a standard portion, smaller (which they deduct the price!shocked) or add more rice, and should you want vegetarian or meat.

Surrprisingly, I would have to give it a thumbs up and bowlbowlbowl of rice please! The rice should be from Japan - or the texture that is only known for that expensive gohan by tasting every bead of rice grain! But again, the curry, which I ordered spicy, wasn't spicy at all. As expected of any Singaporean stall.sad But you could taste the 'seafoodness' of the clam and the tomato paste is just balanced enough with curry.

The only minus point was service was a tad slow, by asking water refill that took too long in this weekday night.

Price point... there's somewhere cheaper and the portion is much more fulfilling. Sorry guys, this is cookeeatmonster talking after all!mad

Soft steamed chicken Smile Jan 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Hawker Centre | Brunch

I must say again that this Albert court 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.

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 from a hawker center!

I miss my Pho Smile Jan 09, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Vietnamese | Food Court

AND TO SAY, to present you the best pho that I miss so much.

I dont' know where else to eat pho or vietnamese food around town as its not generally found in most food stalls and such, and pho noodles with beef brisket slices has the most aromatic and refreshing soup noodle broth I know, more than ramen.

It's been a while since I've eaten this, and passing over the SMU KOUFU and to see a lone stall with an auntie serving up, the hot soup is filled to the brim of the big pot with the signature onion rings.

Not exactly as the ones I've eaten best back in town in a more flavorful broth, this cured my dreaming of eating pho. For $4, and an additonal $1++ you should get rolls but it was sold out when I came. This is then a place to bookmark to get some good for your wallet and vietnamese food fix! Sure to come here again and get some inner energy!
