Food court standard beef noodles OK Jan 29, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Food Court | Chinese Soup | Noodles

 
This is really food court standard (ie. so so standard with a price that didn't fit the food). I tasted better beef noodles in Raffles Place area. I like my beef noodles with really yummy soup and chewy beef slice. They have many different variety of noodles to choose from and of course, you can opt for one with a mixture of meat and insides. I only have the courage to go for the meat ONLY. The soup is blend compared to what I have eaten elsewhere but the taste is still quite ok. Won't say it's bad coz I manage to finish almost the entire bowl of soup. The beef slice is abit light on the color. I was expecting it to be more reddish. Maybe it's a different part of the beef they are using. They didn't cook the kway teow too long so it's not soggy at all. I might go back for a second try.

Gui Lin Gao Smile Jan 29, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese

It was an early morning and right after breakfast, we decided to go for some healthy food. Drove pass this shop with a huge golden pot near the entrance and absolutely no one in there (we were probably too early), and decided to walk in.

 
We ordered the normal gui ling gao. The menu had many different flavors but nothing beats the original taste. Service was pretty fast. Consuming gui ling gao is suppose to be good for the skin and detox (that's what I heard) so it's not surprising that people are able to swallow such a bitter jelly. Aside from the nutritional values, gui lin gao taste good with honey. I like it fresh from the fridge.

Not so sweet experience OK Jan 29, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Desserts and Cakes

Met up with an ex-colleague to shop in NEX coz neither of us had really walked around that place well enough. And since we both didn't need to work that day, we decided to put our meeting place as NEX. After strolling around that place for a while, we got tired and finally chose this little shop as our resting place....mainly because it wasn't too crowded and we wanted some dessert.

 
I ordered the mango pomelo sago. Still can't beat the ones I had in Hong Kong. There was a little bit of pomelo, a little bit of mango fruit and alot of sago. I think this should be renamed to Sago with diced mango.

 
My friend ordered the black sesame paste with almond paste. Nice presentation. Can't comment on the taste because I didn't taste it.

 
Our dessert.

Night snacking again Smile Jan 29, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong

 
As my partner isn't someone who likes to squeeze with crowds and doesn't like to celebrate festivals, we decided to go somewhere quiet to have a drink. I ordered teh-o and my partner ordered coffee.

 
For night snacks, I had the thick toast with butter and condense milk while my partner has the kaya and butter toast. Mine was extremely thick and as usual, I ask for additional condense milk. The butter was also too thick for my taste. I should have just gone for thick toast with milk that I ordered the previous time. My partner's snack was not really interesting. I would have preferred the ones from Yakun. Nonetheless, it was good to get us through the night and kept us awake. We were still there at 1.30am.

Catching up with an old friend Smile Jan 29, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Multi-Cuisine | Restaurant

Finally got the chance to catch up with an old friend. Decided to choose TCC as that is the only place that wasn't too crowded.

 
I ordered the Tiramisu. Not the best I have tasted but it was good enough for me. This dessert wasn't too sweet and the cream that was added in the cup was yummy. I quite like the presentation also.

 
My friend ordered the high-tea set just because she wanted to have scones and we were told that they don't sell scones separately. She has to order the afternoon high-tea set in order for her to have the scones. The set comes with tiny little pieces of cute food produce. I find the presentation extremely fascinating especially the green tea macaroon. We have no idea what the rest of the items are but they tasted great.

 
It is my tradition to order lychee jazz whenever I dine in TCC. This time is no exception. I like how I get the stir the syrup that is sunk at the bottom of the glass. I cleaned up the entire glass of sryrup drink.
