Great pricey food Smile Jul 29, 2012

Categories : Swiss | Pasta | Seafood | Steaks and Grills | Paella | Kids-Friendly


As we walked in, each diner will be given a card where they charge your purchases to. This is an excellent place to dine in if you want to go for Dutch. Nevermind, that they have alot of Swiss flag hanging around.

 
The first on our list was the pork. Nothing on the plate except for some light brown sauce. You have to order their sides to make it complete. I like to eat the meat on it's own without the sauce as I felt the sauce didn't quite complement the meat. The thick juicy grilled pork is really chewy.

 
This little bowl of vege cost me $5.50. Not worth the price but I like the mushrooms so I filled 3/4 of the mini bowl with mushrooms. Only one piece of zuchini left and I took it. They should top of the vege more often especially when they know the stock is low.

 
Rosti is not my favorite. But apparently, it's eveyone's favorite. Don't get me wrong. They taste quite nice except that I don't really like potatoes. Except for those mushy type that melts in your mouth, I don't fancy an entire dish of potatoes. The sausage is pretty ok.

 
Root beer is a must especially when it's my favorite brand.

 
This is Spanish rice and this is the first time I have spanish rice. It looks really messy. I kept on eating the rice so much so that I hardly touch the ingredients they included into the rice. I like the taste and the fragrace.

On the whole, the food was good but a little pricey. For that price, I could have gone to a better restaurant. Just my thoughts.

Snoopy meal OK Jul 26, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Burgers and Sandwiches | Kids-Friendly

After our dinner, the girlies decided to complete the night with dessert. We walked all over 313 but couldn't find something we like until one of the girls suggested Charlie Brown Cafe. Having been to the one in Hong Kong, I immediately agreed.

 
First on the menu was the lava cake. It was slightly disappointing. We were expecting the chocolate to be flowing out but it was more cakey then flowy. Another point to note is that the 'lava' wasn't hot.

 
The drinks were cute. They came with 4 different colors and flavors depicting 4 seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. Spring is green (mint), Summer is orange (orange and pineapple), Autumn is red (apple) and winter is blue (lychee). The waitress will serve the drinks and wait for the sparkle to sizzle out before removing sparkle stick and leaving the table.

 
We had autumn (there's a piece of apple in it), winter (there's 2 lychees in it) and summer (a piece of orange in it). It's only $5 per cup!

Yummy ramen Smile Jul 25, 2012

Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

 

 
Met up with some ex-colleagues for lunch and decided to go for Watami since it wasn't that crowded. Ordered the Kara Miso Ramem because I like spicy stuffs. The menu showed one chilli. It wasn't too spicy and the soup was delicious. The best part is the pork which is so soft that it actually melts in your mouth. The springy noodle absorbed the soup and yet wasn't very soggy. The set comes with a plate of very fresh sushi and a hot drink. On the whole, the meal was worth the $15.80. Will go back for more.

YFT in soup OK Jun 14, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian

 
It was after our class in Katong area and we decided to try out the famous Ampang Yong Tau Fu (YTF). The ordering process is abit weird. Instead of getting to choose our own item visually, we get to choose the items from a piece of paper. So you basically need to be quite familiar with YTF food items, if not, you won't really know what to order without being able to see what to choose. The YFT came with yellow bean soup which surprises me. I always thought that Ampang YTF is dry with light brown sauce. So this is abit different. Also, I have to mention that they don't serve noodles. They only serve rice.

 
Ordered ice lemon tea for our drinks. When we ask what drinks they have, the waitress replied that they have barley and ice lemon tea. So we choose the latter. Not sure if they have soft drinks though.

Not an experience I would like to go back to.

Roast pork OK Jun 13, 2012

Roast Pork

Roast Pork

 
Walked past this stall a couple of times and tried their Peking duck as well as their suckling pig. But when I walk past today, I saw that they have started selling roast pork as well! So I decided to try. The price is $6 like that of Peking duck and suckling pig. I had always been a big fan of roast pork so I had my expectation when I took my first bite. I wasn't disappointed as the skin was quite crispy. I mean, after having hung on the rack for awhile, the skin of the roast pork is still able to maintain it's crispiness. However, the price is rather steep for that amount of meat. Then again, the price is normally dependent on it's location.
