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.

cooling for a korean bbq! Smile Jan 22, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Korean BBQ

Being used to smell like meat after a round of huge buffet gathering of korean BBQ, this new place just opened at the corner of marina square food court (hence the name THE CORNER PLACE doh) it was a coincidence to be invited with a colleague to have dinner there.

Boy oh boy did I went wild.

With the indoor setting and in the mall, the place was much cleaner, cooler, and much neater. For $25, it's cooling and it won't make you smell meat after. Placement was neat but only the tables were fairly too small to occupy what cookeeatmonster eats. tongue

The place to take your marinated meat and other carbo menu was minimal and clean, making it easy to know what is what, and what meat it is stated at the poster that labels which meat is what.

And the BBQ pit was ultra clean with the staff to change the aluminum foil each time the foil burns out, keeping your BBQ hygienic and edible and deliciously juicy. Service was pretty fast that night because there were lots of staff in hand while the place wasn't too crowded.

Samgyeopsal (pork belly) was juicy with the fresh cabbage with whole garlic just popping in your mouth with the soy paste is just... heavenly.

What's more is that for all K-pop fans, this is the place for you to gape and go fangirl as they always play the weekly music concerts on the big screen TV! Total heaven.

most heavenly cream puffs ever Smile Jan 20, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Bakery | High Tea

I tell you, this is the cream puff where no one else has too look any further and to fly to seventh heaven if once bitten in.

If you say Beard Papa is good, you're wrong. Just for $1.30, this deliciously more handmade creampuff is the best combination of both worlds of whipped cream and vanilla vla.

The magic is within, like a golden ramen egg yolk, this cream puff has a yolk inside - the vanilla vla.

From outside, you only get to see the whipped cream and the puff, but once you dig deeper to finish it off, the 'yolk' gives the sweetness you've always cherised.

Cheap and freshness! Smile Jan 19, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Frozen Yogurt | Desserts and Cakes

The promotion of $1 buck off trailed me to give it a try, having a mere stall with colorful decorations and blue-colored ambience and the polar bear as their logo.

Whyogurt's original price of $3 for a cup was already cheap, so $2 getting even a flavored berry yogurt was damn cheap!

Taste was very much refreshing without damaging your wallet and tummy for its a healthy dessert! It retains the sour flavor of the berries and original taste together, making it a light delight for the afternoon snack!

The server was also very friendly, she was helpful and kind when I asked for tasters. smile

Seems that I'm the only openricer that frequents this place (duh, I live above).
But over the past seasons, they grew to become so successful they have now two stores to add more seats, which proves how famous they are for their original recipe, freshness, authenticness and the good service always given by the duo hubby and wife without other helpers.

I was back here again today, before peak hour around 5pm, starving to mad.

Looking at the more extensive menu and some omitting the old menu, they have increased the price for slightly $1-2 in the past, compared to my old post.

What's new was the extension and the new set menus, which I ordered their chicken katsu curry rice for $9, included the miso soup, tiny potato appetizer and the main dish.

I LOVE THE APPETIZER. Wish it wasn't just a bite. It was light, cold, creamy, bright. I thought it was mayonnaise at first.

I understand why how they maintained their popularity with the main dish. Thick curry sauce delved into the well-done fried chicken breaded piece, chopped and nicely placed on top of the japanese-like rice was heavenly. There was no secret to addiction rather than how the taste was not because of preservatives/fake flavorings.

The chicken was fried well done and it was soft, crunchy, thick and meaty, whatever you're looking for in a katsu.

The rice I am surprised, that I managed to finish the meat first before i got to the rice, where I thought the other way around. So it was that much! So it was a fairly large portion all good!

Miso soup was really flavorful on the very salty side, so a random TIP bowl would be to just add a small spoonfuls of water should you want to dilute the saltiness. Other than that, ask for mayo - your katsu would be much more heavenly, and that makes up No. 1 eating place, "Ichi Tei".
