No surprise OK Dec 31, 2010

I had my first meal at Iggy's when it was still at Regent Hotel and it was great. Now that it has moved to Hilton Hotel, it's time to see what new tricks does Iggy's have up its sleeve =)

Unfortunately, I think I went expecting too much. Overall, the meal was nice, but nothing fantastic. Since it's priced at a premium, I was hoping for something more but I can't remember any single dish that's outstanding. Perhaps, only the desserts leave a lasting impression on me. The rest, I can't say the same.

Like prata, only healthier! Smile Dec 31, 2010

My quest for crepes in Singapore ends at Keen On Crepes, not that it has the best crepes but cuz it’s the last of the 4 creperies I know that exist on our little island. This is a new creperie that has opened since April 2010 and has quite a low profile so far. Which makes me wonder how long it can survive, given the competitive F&B environment in Singapore, hmm.

Like Out of the Pan, these are not the authentic French crepes. More like fusion crepes, filled with spices and homemade legume-based spreads. The crepes are freshly made to order and prices are extremely reasonable (less than $10). Great for a healthy and light meal!

To show you how healthy the crepe can be, take a look at this crepe named “Light yet Wholesome” ($5), a hearty wholewheat crepe with egg, cheese, vegetables and pesto.

I, on the other hand, didn’t have anything that healthy. Rather than choosing the fixed combinations on the menu, I decided to build my own crepe. Easily done by following these 4 steps: 1. choose a crepe (whole wheat, 7 grains, persian spice); 2. choose a spread (hummus, dhal, egg); 3. choose fillings (chicken, beef, mushroom); and 4. choose toppings (beetroot, cheese, sprouts).

Ta-da, here’s my customised crepe: buckwheat crepe with mushrooms, spicy hummus, vegetables and basil pesto ($8)! It tastes surprisingly good, hee.

We feel that the crepes here are like Indian roti prata, only much healthier! And I thought I needed to eat two to be full initially (I was very hungry that day, you see) but it’s filling enough! Good value for money, I’ll be back.

Only recently did I know that there’s a minimum spending of $50 if you wanna make a reservation at Itacho Sushi. Doesn’t that mean a lot of sushi at one go? No wonder there’s usually a long queue outside, besides the fact that there’s always a discount of 50% off some of the sushi!

Like this salmon with soy sauce, which was only going for $0.40++ each. 40 cents per sushi, where to find in Singapore?! Of course, don’t expect too much. The cut is very thin and it’s mostly fats without the flesh.

The salmon inari sushi ($1.30++ each) has a sweet beancurd skin filled with rice topped with a spicy salmon mixture. Quite tasty!

I usually like any tamago ($2.40++) but I find this too dry to be even considered average.

Pork chop don with scrambled egg ($12++)! Big portion, small price~

Without a doubt, this is what I came to Itacho for. The “supreme sea eel” ($6++), a looooong piece of thin eel hiding a minute ball of rice, which is just my kind of thing. The eel has a perfect melt-in-the-mouth texture, and the seasoning is not too sweet. I reckon I’ll just get multiple plates of this and skip the rest next time!

Imo, my love Smile Dec 31, 2010

With its long opening hours and numerous outlets islandwide, MOF (Ministry of Food) is a handy choice to satisfy the craving for sugar at odd hours. I’m no stranger to their desserts and will always get a few predictable items, like this Macha Kurian ($8.80+) with kanten jelly, fruits, Japanese dumplings and Japanese red bean paste. The soft serve and green tea gelato (additional $2.50+) melt super fast though so remember to eat first, then talk! =)

And this matcha soft serve ($6.80+) is my MOF favourite since it has everything I like: a mix of fried imo (sweet potato) and yam, topped with a scoop of black sesame gelato (additional $2.50+). Love the contrast between hot and cold at the same time~

2nd time, still the best Smile Dec 31, 2010

If you love Japanese cuisine in omakase style, you gotta check out Nagomi! It’s one of my best hidden finds of 2010 and it’s definitely going to be one of my top picks for ”places to recommend for dinner” this year too.

This time, the Hokkaido king crab is in season and it’s HUGE. Like seriously, the leg is about the size of my forearm! So naturally sweet, fresh and meaty~

Otoshi of burdock and radish was a nice starter; my usual dose of simmered pumpkin from the bowls of cooked food laid out on the counter was good comfort food; ikura don was rich and briny; and I was most impressed with the Japanese tomato with sea salt. Beautifully sweet and juicy, quite unlike any I’ve ever tasted!

Then chef prepared the ultimate protein feast! So many different types of fish, from deep fried crispy fish (can’t remember what’s the name) and simmered kinki, to super fresh sashimi (love the plump scallop most!) and grilled fish cheek, oishii!
