BBQ chicken Cry Dec 19, 2011   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Food Court | Zi Char

After my first visit to this stall where I tried their fried chicken + spicy beancurd and absolutely LOVED the food, I had to go back again to try another dish!
However this time round, I was disappointed sad

I ordered their BBQ chicken which came with a lot of gravy.
However it was too salty and the chicken had mostly fats and skin on it which was disgusting!
I couldn't bring myself to finish the chicken and ended up eating the rice with soup.

Shall stick to their fried chicken on my next visit!

Ayam Penyet Smile Dec 19, 2011   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indonesian | Food Court

Being a fan of Ayam Penyet, I was rather delighted when this new stall at Munch in Ngee Ann opened!
It is a common sight to see the longest queue at this stall, sometimes with 20-30 people queuing during lunch period.

The Ayam Penyet is very crispy on the outside and really succulent and juicy on the inside.
The portion of rice served is generous as well.
The staff is very friendly and always smiling, obliging when you request for more gravy.

Definitely a meal I would keep going back for.
Afterall with their great service, generous portion and affordable price, what's there to not like about it? lol

Japanese Crispy Chicken with Rice OK Dec 19, 2011   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Recently, I tried the Jap Crispy Chicken with Rice from Zesty Tomato as there was no queue for once!
However, I ended up waiting almost 20 minutes for my food whereas others who came after me received their food first.
WHY? Because the staff forgot about my order although I was standing there waiting for my food for so long.
When I finally asked them about my food, then only did they realise they had given my food to someone else who ordered after me.
As I was already starving, this horrible service made me all the more frustrated.

Being able to watch the cook was a huge turn off as his hygiene level is very poor!
He did not have gloves on and kept rubbing his nose and flicking his hair and speaking while handling the food.

Despite being disgusted, I was too hungry to complain and just ate the food, trying my best to not think of the poor hygiene.
The food was of a rather average standard.
The chicken had too much skin on it and the rice was too dry as they were not generous with the gravy.
Also, they put a scoop of baked beans near the middle of the rice, which spoilt the taste of the rice with the tomato flavour.

Overall for the high price and rather poor quality of the food, this was definitely not worth it and I doubt I will be going back to Zesty Tomato again due to the poor service.

Chocolate Banana Cake OK Dec 19, 2011   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Restaurant | Desserts and Cakes | Steaks and Grills

It was around tea time and I was craving some dessert so I headed to Secret Recipe, where they sell quality cakes!
However, their choices on that day was rather limited and they didn't have my favourites sad
Hence, I settled with the Chocolate Banana cake despite not being a huge fan of banana.

The serving of the cake was extremely huge, enough to be shared among 2 which I did!
The top of the cake comes with a thick, fudgy layer of chocolate followed by alternating layers of chocolate cream and sponge and banana slices within these layers.

The layer I loved the most was obviously the topmost.
Afterall, who can resist such chocolatey goodness!

Overall, I feel that the cake was rather average perhaps cause I'm not a huge fan of bananas.
I've definitely tried way better cakes at Secret Recipe smile

Customised Baked Rice Smile Dec 19, 2011   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Western | Restaurant | Pasta | Steaks and Grills | Halal | Kids-Friendly

Eighteen Chefs used to be a popular hangout for my friends and I when we were back in Secondary School.
We just couldn't get enough of the baked rice!

To reminisce those days, my friends and I met up at Eighteen Chefs for dinner on Friday night.
As always, I stuck to ordering their baked rice.
I ordered the student meal which comprises 1 Cheese Baked Rice/Pasta, 1 Iced Lemon Tea and 1 Ice Cream.
At $6.40, that makes a very affordable yet extremely filling meal!

The student meal only has 4 options for the main ingredient in the baked rice; Chicken Sausage, Mushrooms, Baked Beans or Scrambled Eggs.
I chose Chicken Sausage and for the sauce, I chose Black Pepper out of the total 8 choices of sauces they have.
Also, I added Chicken Slices which cost an additional $3.50 but comes with 1 additional free ingredient of the same or lower cost. So for the third ingredient, I chose scrambled eggs.

From what I recall from my secondary school days, the portion of the baked rice is exactly the same!
The amount of cheese and meat served is generous and it is perfect for all those CHEESE lovers out there!!
However in terms of quality and taste, it is definitely not as delicious as back then but still of a high enough standard.
As always, it was a struggle to finish the baked rice.
Once you're about halfway through the baked rice, you tend to feel really really full but since it's really cheesy and yummy, it's rather difficult to resist finishing it!

Once I was done with the baked rice, I couldn't imagine eating anything for the next few hours.
I had completely forgotten about the ice cream that was to be served!
But as a saying goes "there's always another stomach for desserts" and I hold true to that!
I was served a scoop of chocolate ice cream, which although was rather normal, was exactly what I needed after eating so much cheese and meat!

Lastly, the Iced Lemon Tea served is rather refreshing and not loaded with sugar.
Rather it's pleasantly sweet and thirst quenching.

Definitely a nice place to chill out at with friends ;)
