Club Meatballs @ China Square  OK Jan 05, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Pasta | Brunch

This space at China Square serves up meatballs as their specialty dish hence the name - Club Meatballs. With its chic modern setting, this new F&B joint gives us, city workers, one more reason to stay around the area for dinner and chill out after work.

Calamari 

 
Calamari served in a traditional dimsum basket. You don't expect more but the sauce for the deep fried squids is so different from elsewhere. The mojo picon and garlic aioli compliments the calamari perfectly. Worth the stomach.

Pimp my balls 

 

 
We diners get to choose between 5 diferent types of meat. Next, you get to choose 5 type of sides to compliment the meatballs and lastly a sauce finish the dish.

Personally, I felt that the pork was a tad too blend and dry whereas the beef was the better of the meat balls. Truffle mushroom was my choice of sauce while tomato & basil could do no wrong either. To end off, I prefer the freshly made papadelle and the roasted veges. The risotto was poor in my opinion. A meatball dish is good for 2 if you're not hungry. A dish to yourself can make you feel very 'gelak'.

The Lokal is finally serving up dinner. We have for some time, heard rumours of this, but nothing has happened. Thankfully, all has been sorted and this popular Aussie inspired brunch cafe will start serving dinner from 11.11.2014.

 
Although priced slightly higher than the average cafes during brunch, Lokal's dinner menu is more aligned to the normal restaurants around the area. Seeing how passionate Darren and his team go about preparing their dishes, as well as, adding that personal touch to get feedback from us ordinary customers, I decided that I would want to share with ya'll their new menu.

Well, we almost got all da dishes

The starters:

Parfait of chicken liver 

 

 
Seared Wagyu beef carpaccio 

 
Beetroot cured Norwegian salmon 

 
wait, where's the drinks?

 

 
The Mains:

Wagyu beef goulash 

 
1/2 Kampong chicken 

 

 
Slow Roasted lamb shoulder 

 

 
Lokal sausage platter 

 

 
overall review: Definitely worth the try. Starters should range from $17 to $20 while mains would range from $25 to $30. Drinks are a tad pricely but that is the price for having great food with a warm evening setting. Portions are huge though so be prepared to be fed.

Teppei @ Tanjong Pagar Smile Nov 08, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Hotel | Sushi/Sashimi | Omakase


Teppi has been taking Singapore by storm recently and after months of waiting (the queue i last heard was 4 months & also thanks to rachel for booking the place) finally got the chance to savor Japanese omakase at such an affordable price. Omakase dining simply means letting the chef decide your menu for the day, whipping up food which he feels like serving.

 
The appetizers

 

 

 
Salad greens, grilled peas and that very yummy fried salmon skin. 1 piece really ain't enough but that was what we got.

The Starters

 

 

 

 
Japanese poporn on the stalk! Photo worthy and really crunchy too. The plate of fresh sashimi was as good as it gets. Great quality fishes - the tuna was not tiny bit tough as you might expect from elsewhere. You bite down and it melts in your mouth. As you can expect, the salmon was really good too. The only item which i felt wasn't to my liking was the yuzu clam soup. Still not a fan of yuzu.

Those cooked fishes

 

 

 

 
It was to my surprise that we had more fish dishes than I orginally thought. Those who know me well knows that I am not a fan of cooked fish - and I guess this is the part which I really didn't enjoy. However, the seared codfish was excellent. Tasted more like pork than fish to me where the distinct codfish odour was almost non existent. Can't really say much about the yuzu salmon soup, soy braised fish & tempura fishhh because they had that overwhelming fishy taste which I dislike. Nonetheless, all wasn't wasted as there were many peeps to eat them up for me.

Almost there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Yes, more food on the way. A maki roll with fresh choppped sashimi. That Japanese tomato which was sweet and juicy - unlike those sold in Singapore, was really awestuck by this seemingly unpretentious item. The grilled chest nut tasted meh but the foie gras, puffer fish skin, beef and salmon aburi were mouthwatering.

The Game.

 

 
Mashed green peas and eggs served on a spoon. The catch - outta of 20 spoons, 10 were infused with lots of fresh WASABI. So, will you be the lucky or unlucky one. Thankfully, I was the lucky few to make it out from the challenge without tearing. However, greedy me decided to volunteer to have another go at the last spoon because there was short of one person that night. All i can say, i almost choked and teared uncontrollably for that one minute. Thank you for the experience Mr Teppei

Almost at the end - The Mains

 

 
Yes, for mains, we could choose from a selection and out came kimchi fried rice and spoonfuls of aburi. In my honest opinion, go for the spoonfuls of aburis - from monkfish, salmon, raw prawn and some slimy part of the fish, these items will leave a mark on your palate instead of that ordinary looking kimchi fried rice.

Desserts

 
Very average ice creams - seaseme, yuzu, calpis, but it was fine because we were so full from the other items.

Lola's Cafe @ Simon Road OK Nov 05, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : European | Café | Desserts and Cakes

Just a short random post on Lola's which we visited during the weekend. I can't believe people will actually queue for as long as 2 hours for this? My last visit here was when there were lesser souls around the estate, when even on a Sunday afternoon, I would be able to choose the seats i want. Sadly, this isn't the case now. As you can see, it was sometime ago and I finally made the time to review this popz cafe.

Cheese Fries 

 
Generous with their cheese, the fries were unexpectedly one of the better dish here. Almost finished it on my own.

Mushroom and cheese toasties 

 
Hole in the middle of the brioche, stuff it with cheese and mushrooms. Stuff more cheese and bake it in the oven til toasted. I think even my sister know how to make it ?

Wings 

 
Justifiable that their best dish is the one being that is being madly raved about. The wings - deep fried til golden brown, glazed with honey and a sprinkle of herbs. At S9 it is probably quite reasonable and worth the pocket.

Breakfast Croissant 

 
Very average in my opinion. The croissant were not as fragrant and flaky as I remembered it to be. The eggs were in need of a tad of salt and pepper. The bacon which was once crisp turned out soggy. It's probably my taste picky taste buds, but i expected much more of this dish.

Categories : Australian / New Zealand | Café | Frozen Yogurt

 
Frozen by a thousand blessings, a yogurt shop from Melbourne has landed on our shores in Singapore. Located at Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, a block opposite from Creamier, and is fast getting its fair share of regulars.

 
Frozen's yogurt is more creamy, a mix between Sogurt and Yammi. Coming in 6 different flavours : Green Tea, Mango & Soy, Coconut, Pomegrantate, Chocolate and Original

 

 

 
The yogurt here are self served. At $3.80 per 100g, you take a cup and dispense as much as you would like. You can mix and match, but i found that their pairing on the machines are the best. Yes, the price is a little steep, but for that quality of yogurt, it is worth it (nontheless, eating everyday though will burn a hole in your pants).

 

 
After dispensing, walk over to sprinkle some toppings. With over 20 different types of varieties, you'd be spoilt for choice. However as always i stand my ground that these toppings shouldn't be put out in the open. The toppings will go LAO HONG (leak air).

 
Lastly, add some sauce if you might - chocolate, hazelnut and original. As always, imma chocolate fan so chocolate works well for me.
