This is one of the restaurant opened under the Soup Restaurant group. The 3 "sister" restaurants are actually situated next to each other in IMM. You get the most expensive one (Soup Restaurant), the average cost one (Pot Luck) and then Café O. You can actually have your 3 meals there too! For breakfast, try the Cafe O for roti prata, etc. for lunch you can frequent the pot luck store which serves a variety of different dishes and then have dinner at Soup Restaurant! Pretty cool concept huh!

So let's start with the review for potluck! this new establishment at imm seems to be a hot favourite as you can see long lines being formed during the lunch/dinner hours.
I believe what attracts most is that they have free flow drinks ($2.80) and free flow rice ($1.50). However, on hindsight, unless you're a really big eater, this may be seen as more expensive than cheap as they discourage sharing of food so if you calculate, you actually have to poslish off 3 bowls of rice before the price is about $0.50 per bowl of rice.
Before ordering, you may want to consider this economical point!

We ordered this curry fish head for $17.90 as it seems to be the best-selling and it's a chef recommendation. They even framed it up and put it as perhaps a permanent promotion item (U.P $23). I smell a marketing gimmick! (which I gladly fell into as the picture looks really enticing!)

 
This dish came in a hot pot (Extremely hot pot! Please be careful when handling!) and was exactly like the picture being advertised. The aromatic curry hits your nose and you came feel your mouth watering. I wasted no time in piling the curry onto my rice and quickly dug in.
I think the fish should've went through some QC as it was still really scaly, making it a hassle to eat as you have to slowly remove the scales as you eat.
If without the scales, this is definitely a very fantastic dish as the curry was thick enough and the fish was really fresh!

Looking around, I saw many other dishes that were being served out and most if not all, you could see the steam rising from each hot pot! This is definitely one place I'm going back to!

Alright..  OK Jul 30, 2013

Went to dine with my friend at this eatery as she wanted to try this ramen place after trying the other ramen places in this area.
Both of us ordered the Ladies' Set meal ($10.20++) which comes with a smaller bowl of ramen, 1 set dish and a drink (you can refer to their facebook page for the full menu)

 
As a fan of sesame seed, I anticipated this dish to be really good as sesame seed with anything always tastes nice! The broth of the soup is boil with pork bones, simmered over a few hours and you can distinctively taste the pork taste in the soup.
There were some garnishes which tastes like onion and I didn't really like it.
The noodles were quite springy and I feel that the portion size was just right for a small eat like me! I do like that like sprinkle a lot of black sesame seeds into the bowl but I couldn't really taste it.
Other than bamboo shoots and bean-sprouts, there was also 1 slab of pork (San Chen Rou) in the middle of it. I didn't really like eating that so I gave it to my friend who says that it's mediocre.

My friend claims that the other restaurants serve better ramen but I like the ambience of this place. A cozy eatery with the waiters being Japanese and speaking with a Japanese accent. It felt like I crawled into a mini Japan.

P.S. The reddish oragney lights in the restaurant made my photo turn out as so! The soup is NOT spicy at all.

Pork and Sushi! OK Jul 30, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

The queue here at vivocity is so much longer than the one at JEM! If you waited really long at JEM, be prepared to queue an even longer time here!
After my successful dine at JEM the other time, my friend recommended me to try the branch at vivocity! SO here I go!

I think we were supposed to order the yakitori sticks but we decided against it as we felt that it's a little more pricey that we hope it would be. One stick of pork meat could cost about $2.40, I think it's better if I'm eating the Don(s).

We ordered the Buta Don ($14.80) - Grilled Pork Rice Bowl

 
I wasn't really a fan of Pork in the first place but I really like the sauce for this! I think this is quite worth it as the meat is soft and the serving is quite generous! I also like to eat the pickle with the pork, quite a nice combi!

We also ordered the California Temaki (hand roll)($3.00)

 
The price is a tad higher than other Japanese place that I've eaten at. A great disappointment as the seaweed is already soggy when they served it! ): But I like that the filling inside goes all the way down and isn't like what you see at the top is what you get.

If you like pork, I think you will love the Buta Don, but skip the california temaki as I don't think it's worth it.
Also, make a reservation so that you don't have to wait too long!

Fluffy! OK Jul 30, 2013

Categories : Bakery

 

 
Bought these 2 breads for breakfast the other day as I was walking pass this stall. I feel that it's a tad unhygienic due to the layout of this place. As the store size is quite small, they had to cram many trays of breads into the transparent shelves. This caused some of the breads to be quite low in the shelf and being fairly near to the human traffic, I felt that it is quite a hazard when taking the bread.

I bought the pandan sponge cake and polo bun. Did not really enjoy the pandan sponge cake as i felt that it's a little dry although it is quite light.
The polo bun was quite good! I love the top part of this bread as it's sweet and when eaten together with the bread, it's quite a good combination. Fluffy and light!

Chicken Penyet (: OK Jul 30, 2013   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indonesian | Food Court | Rice

 
I ordered this Chicken Penyet (not the fried version), as I was enticed my the queue again! I also saw many people eating this dish after walking 1 round around the food court. This cost $5.90.
The chili is extremely potent, similarly to the time that I ate it. The tofu wasn't as bad this time round. A little softer on the fried part. And for the main star! The chicken! The sauce was quite sweet, even sweeter than the last time, you definitely need to pair it with rice so that the effect is not as strong. The chicken is quite soft but I think they might have grilled it a little too long as it was juicy.

OVerall, this is definitely better than the fish penyet as firstly, you don't have to deal with messy bones and this is much easier to eat.
