Pasta with a twist! Smile Jan 10, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Japanese | Fusion | Restaurant | Pasta

I went for the standard chartered promotion! Set meal cost $16 each and comes with salad, soup and drinks (soft drinks/ apple juice/ orange juice).
We ordered pasta w olive roast duck, pasta in soup hokkaido and cream shrimp and squid pasta.

The restaurant has a very jap feel as there were some wooden decorations around and we used chopsticks to eat the pasta! I thought that the tables arrangement was a little cramped and i was practically sitting right next to the customer next to me. One of the staff that served us was not so fluent in English and so we had to point out what we wanted. Can see her trying very hard! So kudos to her!

 
Salad: Felt like onion salad as the veggies that forms the base of the salad was actually onion sliced into thin strips. It was a little too raw for me and but the salad sauce which had a tinge of saltiness covered up the rawness of the onion. Overall, very refreshing.

 
First few sip of the soup tastes quite nice, after awhile, i thought it was increasing salty so i dipped the pasta into the soup and ate it like cold soba.

 
The pasta was not presented as so! Had to arrange it as we were eating away happily and forgot to snap a pic! Pasta was springy and the duck meat was soft and tender. Olive oil added which boost the taste of it. 1-2 strips of corn to enhance the aesthetics of the dish.

 
Again, pasta was not served as so. Have nearly finish eating this dish. The soup was creamy and flavorful, quite a lot of milk added i think. Generous serving of ingredients added includes carrots, potatoes and asparagus, bacon. The carrots and potatoes were cooked to the right temperature, not too hard and not too soft

 
Lastly, the shrimp and squid. They gave 4 shrimps and 3 squids, had bacon in it as well. They also provided a slice of lemon to add to the pasta. I think the sourness of the lemon enhanced the taste of the pasta. chopstick Shrimp and squid were deep fried but the batter wasn't that thick, could taste the 2 ingredients very well.

What i didn't like about the restaurant is one has to go to the counter to make payment. The counter was right next to the kitchen so while you wait for the bill to be printed out, you have to keep dodging them as they come out with the piping hot dishes. This might be a business trick as you'll see the food being prepared and it smelt so nice; which makes you want to go back again!

MEAT MEAT & MORE MEAT! Smile Jul 30, 2013

Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Buffet | Korean BBQ

The recent opening of their relocated novena branch has met with a small change in price, the only price increase was for adult's lunch which increased by $2, but it is still very affordable.

Take a look at their updated price list:
Lunch: $14++ (Adult) , $9++ (Child) [Monday-Fri]
Dinner: $22++ (Adult) , $18++ (Child) [Mon-Thurs]
For Friday Dinner + [Weekends(+PH and eve) - whole day]: $22++ (Adult) , $18++ (Child)

Operating Hours:

Weekday lunch: 11:30AM - 2:30PM (2:00PM LAST ORDER)
Weekday dinner: 5:00PM - 11:00PM (10:30PM LAST ORDER)
Weekend : 11:30AM - 11:00PM (NO INTERVALS IN BETWEEN)

 

 

 
As usual, we took a lot of meat as it is the most worth it! I love the juicy meat which has its very own unique taste. You can also take as much as you want as its a buffet style. I love the BBQ the meat by myself as I can control its consistency and I can eat it fresh out of the "stove"!
I also enjoy the attentive service that the staff here provides. Once they see an aluminum foil which is close to being charred and toxic, then swiftly change it. I also like how they are able to maneuver the meat and slide it down quickly onto the new aluminum foil.
There's also a very sweet rice drink which is very very addictive! I still crave for the taste everyday since my last visit.

Do bring a change of clothes if you're going somewhere else as this place really stinks up your clothes, unless you want to smell like a walking BBQ stove! mad
Do also queue earlier than your estimated time of eating as the queue tends to get really long during the lunch hours due to its very cheap and competitive prices for adults!

The baby ribs here are absolutely amazing. Drenched in Chili’s famous sauce and slow cooked to perfection. The meat is really soft and juicy, easy to pull apart from each bone along the ribs. Every mouth of these ribs brings you closer and closer to heaven as you chew the meat without much effort.
You’re allowed to choose 2 side dishes for the main course. I chose their classic French fries and corn on the cob. The fries were piping hot when served, filed with potato; it was really fat and nice! The corn is wonderful too, showered in butter and baked slowly, it leave a nice residual taste in your mouth. It is not overly buttered but if you’re on a date, you may want to avoid this as eating corn can get pretty mess. A trick that I always use is to use the knife to grind the corn out, like a corn grinder. Moving your knife as though you’re cutting a piece of meat. You not only look lady-like/man-like,, you can impress your date without looking like a pretentious person/a barbarian.
This place gets pretty busy during lunch/dinner hours especially on Friday-Sunday as people come out to play. You may want to call in for reservations to avoid the long queue.

Dainty Crodos Smile Jul 29, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | European | Café

Pasarbella at the Grandstand seems to be an up and coming place, I saw people taking wedding photos in there! And this marketplace kind of store had only revamped itself recently! It has a very rustic feel where you'll definitely feel like you aren't in Singapore.
I heard many reviews and saw many instagram pictures reviewing these crodos and I had to try it for myself!

 
Chocolate Crodos ($4.90)

 
I think this was already the last few left from the batch of the day as after I bought one, the next person who came swept up all the remaining 3. Lucky me! This hybrid baby born from a croissant and donut tasted really brilliant! The chocolate was really smooth and ooozes out, engulfing your whole mouth with rich and thick chocolate, talk about sinful indulgence!! I like that the crisp surface still tasted really fresh and was quite flaky, baked to perfection!
I envision that this will be the next food fad as it's really awesome and the love such hybrid foods!

Yangnyum Galbi: Beef ribs marinated in BORNGA’s special sauce, $45!

Finally, I was able to try the long-awaited BBQ beef after soooo long! I came with my family instead of my friends! I absolutely love this place for the BBQ beef! I also love Bornga's special sauce which I can dip into and we were allowed to get more special sauce!

 
We're supposed to roll out the meat and let it cook. The bone was really hard and obviously inedible but I feel like I was having the real deal! Being able to see the bone part. This is really really good and I also like the presentation of the raw lettuce and carrots that were giving so that we can wrap the meat in the vegetable and eat!

 
It's really the best combination in the world: Beef, vegetable and Bornga's special sauce! HEAVENLY. I felt that every penny was really worth it! I urge you to give it a try!
