chi ni tou fu Smile Aug 26, 2013

The name of this stall immediately got the attention of ours and we ended up buying the cold beancurd dessert from them. There are a few variants available, the original, durian, chocolate, almond etc. I originally wanted the durian soya beancurd but it was sold out so I bought five tubs of almond soya beancurd back home to try. The almond flavour costs $2. The almond soya beancurd is quite strong in the almond taste and almond lovers will surely like this flavour. It is also not too sweet so it is healthier. The texture of the beancurd is smooth and eating it is very effortless as the beancurd just melts in your mouth with every spoonful. I haven't eaten much of other brands' almond beancurd but I just know that the ones by Chi Ni Tou Fu suits me very well.

Be prepared for a long wait Smile Aug 25, 2013

It is a very very long wait at Melben for our food. We had to queue for around 1 hour before we are finally seated and then wait another 20minutes before our food is finally served. That said, the staff will some around and ask you for your order when you are queuing, so our ordered are placed quite early in the queue. Of the 5 dishes that we ordered, my favourites are the Yam Ring and Salted Egg Crab.

The yam ring, although is quite commonly found in other places, I found that the yam ring here is really good. The yam is very very smooth to the taste as it is very well blended and mashed. The exterior of the yam ring is crisp and the batter is not greasy so there is no oily aftertaste. The yam is also well flavoured and the ingredients in the yam ring are also ample. There is a mix of bell peppers, prawns and more. The only slight thing to improve on is the cashew nuts as it is not crisp.

The salted egg crab is also very yummy. The balance of saltiness and sweet is just right and it is creamy even. The crab meat is also firm and fresh and it has managed to absorb the salted egg seasoning quite well too. However, the long wait is quite off-putting so it will make me think twice about coming.

Ayam Penyet  Smile Aug 25, 2013

We haven't tried the ayam penyet before even though we had been to Jurong Point countless of times so we decided to dine in there for our dinner. We did not have long to wait for seats and for our order as we are there quite early. I ordered the Ayam Penyet which is fried chicken and fried tau kwa set while my hubby ordered the Udang Penyet which is fried prawn and fried tau kwa set. Sorry for the smaller photo of my ayam penyet as I accidentally pressed something on my camera and the following shots are all very much smaller. Anyway, the fried chicken is very tasty. Although it is deep fried, but it does not feel greasy and the chicken meat rather tender and moist too. I love their chilli, it is a must have with my rice, the chicken and basically everything. My hubby said his set is good as well, so people who love prawns may want to try the udang penyet. The portion is quite alright, I was full after my meal. I will definitely come back to try other dishes. I think it is around $7.90 for my set.

Pumpkin cheesecake Smile Aug 24, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : International | Restaurant

I went out shopping with my hubby a few weeks back and we stopped by tcc for a light snack as our lunch is not very filling and we are tired from all the walking around. My hubby made the order while I went to find seats. He bought the pumpkin cheesecake as it is quite a novel cheesecake rather than the normal new york cheesecake.

The cheesecake's colour is quite vibrant and it looks and smells good. The cheesecake is quite rich in that the cake did not sink with the push of the fork into the cake. On first bite, the pumpkin taste gets to you immediately in a good way. The cake is also not cloyingly sweet and we polished off the entire slice in no time at all. Even my hubby who is not really a pumpkin fan loves it. I am not sure of the price as my hubby paid, but no matter what, I think this is worth a try.

Must try! Smile Aug 24, 2013

This stall is quite famous for the XO fish head bee hoon. It is quite a long wait for our food during weekends and you can see that most empty tables with people are all waiting for their orders to come from this stall.

We ordered the prawn paste chicken and the XO fish head bee hoon to share among the three of us. The star is no doubt the XO fish head bee hoon. There is a choice of it being served with fried or sliced fish and we ordered the slice fish. The soup base is really tasty, with depth in the flavour from the hours spent in boiling the soup and I could also distinctively taste the XO alcohol. The fish slices are thick and fresh and firm, and it is a delight eating it with the soup. The ginger slices in the soup helps to balance out the flavours, making the taste of the soup well balanced and non fishy. It is hard to describe how nice it is, you simply have to make a trip down and try it yourself.
