It is not difficult to find French restaurants in our little diversified island. But to discover one that is affordable for the masses prove to be a challenge! I chanced upon this restaurant at Vivo City the other day. My friends and I wanted to try Jamie Oliver's newly open restaurant but the queue was way too long and we were getting hungry. Opposite Jamie Oliver's restaurant is Poulet which specializes in serving roast chickens!
I quick check of the background of this place shows that it is opened by the Thai Express company. The waiters there are aplenty but they seem to have a limited command of English Language. Yet, this did not deter them from serving the customers with the best service. They were very prompt in their service and you can easily catch one of them lingering around, ready to serve you.

 
I ordered their signature Poulét Roti (Half, $15.80. Whole, $28.80). Ordered the Whole one to share with my peer as it was cheaper than getting the half version. The roasted chicken was juicy and palatable even when eaten on its own without the sauce. But if you dip a small piece of it into the rich and luscious mushroom cream sauce, it achieves a much better taste! I like that they did not use the canned button mushroom and you could see the whole bit of it. The raw vegetable provided also helps in decreasing the saltiness of the sauce if one feels that it is too salty. This is definitely an arm workout as you'll want to carve out every single piece of chicken meat on this piece of chicken, it is simply too good. This chicken has also broken my rule of not eating the chicken skin! This definitely proves how wonderful it is!

 
We also ordered the Banana Bread and Butter Pudding, $6.80. I have converted to being a banana lover after tasting this. The taste was not overwhelming and was definitely a good dessert to have after the meal. It left a pleasant taste of this delicious and healthy fruit at every spoonful.

I love that this place is very affordable and the service is good. Not only that, the food is sensational as well! I will definitely recommend this place if you want to try some French cuisine.

Have I ever mentioned that I love love love Thai food? During the GSS sale, my family bought some vouchers which entitles us to 50% discount on all the items and can only be utilized in july! This led to us to frequent the restaurant many times in this month and the waiters were able to recognize us! haha!

I went over by myself the other day and had the Masaman Beef Curry ($12.90) and a plate of Jasmine Rice to complement it.

 
The curry was HEAVENLY!!!! I was in cloud nine as I slurped down the curry bit by bit, savoring the taste in my mouth. It has all the flavors: sweet, sour, spicy and salty bursting with each bite. The beef was extremely soft and I swear that even people with no teeth will be able to eat it (I kid!) as it melts in your mouth. There were also carrots and potatoes in it which doesn't make it to overwhelming after awhile. I also like that they were very generous in the serving of the curry as you can see that it's more or less filled to the brim!
After eating this meal, I did a quick research on how to prepare it and the procedure looks really tedious and requires many many kinds of ingredients. Kudos to the chef who was able to make this dish hit all the tastebuds perfectly!

As with all the delicious thai food I've eaten, I'll always seek to be back for them to tantalize my tastebuds lol

spicy-licious! Smile Jan 09, 2013

Categories : Shanghainese | Restaurant | Dim Sum | Noodles

I went for lunch at around 2+, after the lunch crowd? Because i know the queue takes forever during the peak hour. Evident from the throngs of people gathering around outside the restaurant during peak mealtimes.

The waiters and waitresses are crazily friendly! smile Once you enter the restaurant, they greet you with an arousing "huan ying guang ling" (welcome to patron, lol direct translation). It gets annoying after all as they do it for every single customer. huffy Especially for me as they sat me next to the kitchen and everyone passes through there. But the service was prompt as there were so many of them! However, they seem to have little knowledge of the specific dishes, so it's better to ask those with more senior position.

The environment was very lively due to the random welcoming by the waiters, decor was bare-minimal as the restaurant was catering to more patrons at once. Thus, the lack of many ornaments around. It was an open kitchen concept so patrons can see the chefs pulling the la mian and wrapping the xiao long baos.

Food ordered:

 
1. Radish Pastry - $3.90 lol
I tried this dish before and i absolutely loved it. The radish was sweet and crunchy and the outer fried layer was crispy! NICE NICE NICE!
Sadly, there was something wrong with the whole batch of radish pastry that day. The radish was sour and we complained to the manager who quickly apologize and went to the kitchen to taste the dish. Indeed, the chef felt it was sour too and changed the whole batch! The manager couldn't compensate a new radish pastry so he just kept apologizing. STILL! I'll recommend this dish!

 
2. Steamed Vege Dumpling - $3.60 smile
OK dish, nothing too special about this. Filled with chives and spring onion? not sure of the particular vege. This dish is meat free as well, so it's not too filling. The skin was just nice, not too hard/soft. Try it with the ginger, quite a nice mix.

 
3. La Mian Steamed with D/boiled Chicken Soup - $10.80 smile
Noodles with separate soup. The double boiled chicken soup was simple and nice. Nothing fanciful about it but the soup was delicious! It has only about 2-3 pieces of chicken inside but the main attraction is the la mian. Very springy! and it doesn't let the eater feel tired of eating it.

 
4. La Mian with Dried Shrimp & Scallion (Dry) - $6.80 lol
We ordered this to share as we wanted a plain noodle to go with the other dishes. The dried shrimp and scallion smelt soooo nice! MAybe i was a little hungry but i thought that this was indeed simplicity at its best! They gave a small bowl of soup too, i think just in case it gets too dry after being exposed when patrons chat and eat at the same time.

 
5. Sautéed Kai Lan with Ginger Sauce - $12.00 smile
Very overpriced!! ): 9-10 stalks of kailan and it cost $12! I recommend the other vegetables, although they only have 4 (sautéed spinach w minced garlic, sautéed australian lettuce and the other 2 we ordered) to choose from. This one will be one of the more expensive one. Luckily, it was sweet and fresh enough.The kai lan was all very young, more juicy too!

 
6. Sautéed Cabbage - $12.00 lol
More worthy of the price since there were relative more stalks. Eating veggies at restaurants always cost a bomb seeing as how cheap veggies are. The cabbage was on the softer side and not as crunchy, might have boiled for a little too long, but it was still juicy.

 
8. Poached Slice Fish in Szechuan Style - $18.80 mad
This was definitely a szechuan dish. The number of chillies in the dish was uncountable. Practically a chilli soup!! Definitely not for the faint-hearted. The fish was very smooth and soft, felt like jelly! There was this indescribable layer of coating around it? Gave the fish an extra taste. Wonderful! The chilli added an extra oomph! to the dish! Look at the amount of chilli we fished out from the bowl
lol

lol

 
tongue, it could be a dish on it's own!

I will definitely patronize paradise dynasty 2 again for the great food and service! bowl chopstick lol

BeeHoon galore! Smile Jul 30, 2013

Putien always manages to serve delicious food at an affordable price with exceptional service! Order the XingHua Fried BeeHoon after the recommendation of one of the waiters. This cost $7.90 and as you can see, it has an abundant of seafood, from prawns to clams to squids. Most restaurants only add in prawns and squids in their seafood dishes but not putien! It distinguishes itself for being able to be creative and special by adding more than the normal things into their dishes.
The BeeHoon is not very oily and was also very springy. SeaFood is fresh and I love that the prawn is those crunchy type that I like!
tongue This dish is suitable for all meals, from breakfast to dinner, it'll leave you craving for more!

VERY GOOD! Smile Jul 30, 2013

This was the most number of dishes I ever ordered from a nasi padang stall. I ordered 3 vegetables, and 2 meat! HAHA! It was really funny too see the shock on the macik’s face as she saw this girl ordering more and more! I had a reason though, I was sharing with a friend so I was given the liberty to order whatever I want!
I chose the brinjal, spinach and ladyfingers for my vegetable and sotong and beef rendang for the meat.
The smell was absolutely amamzing! Vegetables all tasted really good as usual due to my love of vegetables. All of it tasted really fresh and not extremely spicy. The sotong was a tad too spicy for me but I was able to ingest it as the rice made it less spicy. Even if it’s way too spicy for me I’ll still swallow it happily as it was really good! Lastly, the main ingredient that I really like is the beef rendang. I love how the beef is really soft and in small cubes for easy ingestion. The gravy that accompanied it had a very strong distinctive taste which leaves you wanting for more!
If you’re ever in this area, stop by to try the malay food! With the friendly service from the macik and this absolutely tasty food, you won’t regret wasting some calories here!
