On the dry side Smile Jan 09, 2012

Categories : Hawker Centre | Noodles

Without hesitation, I asked for the dry version of the ban mian in mian kuey version (square noodles) because of the hot, hot, weather these past few days after my trip from Mustafa! Goodness gracious, how the noodle looked small and little compared to the usual full bowl of soup and noodles that it looked like a huge portion of noodle.

For $3, the usual style with egg, pak choy and a dash of garlic and an additional wanton was not giving any sickening too-full-over-flour-meals. The dry soup taste was rather sweet and I added more vinegar and soy sauce and it kinda muddled into the taste. It was a good break and for the price, it was a hearty portion!

Nothing comes out good this except how I could say its the best most sinful taste those Taiwanese street snack peddlers can ever make. How can they be such a genius over simple food but really, no good at all tongue

Voted, praised, and awarded the best snack in my grade, this tofu fried sticks are like the no.1 snack to go for $3.5 (which is quite ex to say in this small packet).

Nonetheless, you can't resist. Once you take a finger, your cannot stop anymore.

The crispiness and spicy goodness with empty filling - as its the tummyless bouncy squishy tofu is just so apt and it could be the reason why I'm going to have sick heaty body in this weird weather.

My cousin sis, a good eater too, brought me for such a good hideout just a block away from my house where I always passed but never gave a try because it looked too al-fresco and high expensive-y.

We had our tums filled with a good dinner popular choice and their unique dessert style.

Before watching WICKED, I had then a properly wickedly good healthy meal ending with a strawberry cheesecake sweetness.

His deep fried battered fish fillet - forgot the name of the fish - in potato wedges and salad was in a fresh and healthy proportion of meal. The big fillet fish, fried in herbs, was visibly seen in the fried skin, which added a delectable smell and properly soft, melting white meat in your mouth, with the flavored wedges hidden underneath the fillet which was utterly ghooood, and the fresh salad in light oil dressing. The meal was priced affordably in a chic corner of the city for $13.90.

In town, I tell you, can't find this price and place, anywhere else.

The chef, Jason, which my sis introduced and knew him well was only the one-man cook and coming in to say that "this is not your mere fish. Fresh water wish compared to the dory fillet which eats trash like catfish, this one eats clean hence the very white-colored meat."

I ate it off like there's no tomorrow as fish fillets are my home menu by day. Of course, as its more well done and far better in food styling than home cooked.

Desserts, desserts, desserts, hear hear. Their new style soft strawberry cheesecake has such a soft texture that it is creme brulee style cheesecake, as so to say, and approved by the chef of course (hooray, points for me there). That was the hot dessert. The other was the traditional sliced cheesecake strawberry, but in this case where you expect such thickness, this one was on the milky side where it isn't too salty and gives a fine, soothing not overpowering finish.

It was a good early dinner where we own the place with no one else and just the chef chatting and serving away. I'm not overrating this review, as this place is too good to be true.

Gooey favorite Smile Jan 09, 2012

Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Hawker Centre | Noodles

I have eaten this in the past, but then I started picking it up and then it ended as a favorite whenever lunch hour is around going to the office.

The gooey soup with kway tiao (choosing rice instead of egg noodles as a healthier version and to avoid acne pimples) and the shark fritters which I don't believe (poor sharks but I dont mind if its normal fish) is just as addictive the more you eat it.

It doesn't need to be introduced again, with a bowl of $2.50, the gooey soup gives you the sense of fulfillment in your tummy with a tablespoon++ of black vinegar and chopped spring onions, adding that zing of freshness and eliminating the fishy after taste.

Even the lady now knows me asking "are you studying here" and with the articles pasted all over their board, again, no introduction needed as even Singapore-based mangaka artist (i forgot the name but i've met him for real) drew this famous lor mee as a Singaporean dish must-try!

Crunch yer buck 'ere Smile Jan 09, 2012

The cookieatmonster is back! And let me tell you if you have the biggest appetite ever like I do, having a men's stomach in a girl's being, this is a stall you can't miss for being its A grade cleanliness score seen on the front side of the stall and the two men chefs who, I asked where did you guys go, sometimes you guys open, sometimes you're not even around.

"Well, we sometimes feel that it's not so full with people so we don't open, then if we wake up early we'll open."

like a slacker like me, their cooking skills don't reflect that, rest assured.

I ordered the fried fish with veggies and rice set because it looked huge in the picture. And it came out as expected. chopstick

I have to say thumbs up as the veggies are fresh and has a lot of varieties which I dont find much where else - carrot, mushrooms, paprika, broccoli and some cabbage here and there with bbq sauce is awesome.

Fish is fried to perfect crunch, I assume its dory fish fillet, streamed with mayonnaise.

Rice portion is also quite generous.

Tastewise should be pretty plain and straightforward as the taste meddles and heavily depends on your ketchup and chilli and mayonnaise usage dose (my case, its all three in one and adds up a mountain) but given on a big white plate, I felt like I was at Fish and Co half the price.
