takeaway mini 'steak' Smile Jan 19, 2012

Categories : Restaurant | Pasta | Steaks and Grills | Burgers and Sandwiches | Kids-Friendly

The place where I can always count on when wanting to eat pure western and protein and not spending too much money at my school's cafe; just a run off away is Astons Express.

With $6.5 nett, I ordered the chicken teriyaki sauce with side dishes of pasta salad and baked potato.

bowlThe good part: you know when its freshly served as it took about 10 full minutes before my order came out in a very non-peak hour ( I was the only one ) and waiting for them to cook it out and boil the potato.

The potato was given whole, very hot and soft as the butter melted down. The pasta was just cooked al dente but i expected more vegetables, this was just pasta with some light cream sauce.

Chicken was at the right portion between juicy and hard for its fibers, and sweetness for the teriyaki. Of course, it was sort of destroyed with the tomato ketchup and chilli. lol

chopstickThe bad thing: You NEED PATIENCE FOR THE BEST FOOD TO COME, bang for yer buck.

Cheap and freshness! Smile Jan 19, 2012

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

The buffet is why everyone returns.

Other than the part where you can have unlimited sweet soft drinks and ice cream parfaits, sundae and ice cream scoops and do whatever you want to your drink, the food in reality, really is just en passe.

It is really worth your money supposedly for the place where it is located in the city and for the price and buffet, sure, it is a good deal!

ordering steamed ginger dory which comes with rice and miso for $7++, the meal was just dissapointing that the fish portion was small and it was dead and almost to cold because they've cooked probably a whole school of fish at one time.

Maybe other menu would be better such as the fried stuff, and bowl TIP to PLEASe don't order any ramen. Like hello, there are a ton of authentic ramen stalls our there, even the semi-authentic franchise ones would still be a good pick.

Red Mango Promo Smile Jan 19, 2012

Categories : Frozen Yogurt

Having a set of coupons for Red Mango Wilkie branch, I used up for the buy one get one medium cup. Seeing the menu, they change flavors daily and I would always pick the flavored one in the end compared to the plain one as it is very sour! tongue Just a heads out.

Flavored one today was the pink berry which had the icy tinge sweetness and sourness just right. Topping I ordered was the granola bits, which were generously given by a uber friendly staff - not the usual staff I see. So lucky me, and good for the hot days these days!!!

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".
