It seems like this Restaurant is more well-known for its dim-sum, but the time I went to, it was already at night. Hence, we could only get the dinner menu which didn't include any dim-sum. The crowd at night was really thin, other than my table, only 3-4 of the available tables were occupied. With the air-con blasting at high speed and the random mix of English and Chinese songs playing overhead, one really wonders how they survive for so long. I must say though, the ambience was there. Quiet and gentle, i could really cut the silence with a knife. They also have a strict dress-code which can be flaunted easily as my company and I were all wearing flip-flops which wasn't allowed. I guess they didn't really care anymore with the few patrons they have.

We ordered Braised Asparagus with Bamboo Piths - $21.00

 

There wasn't anything special about this and the sauce wasn't that nice either. Normal for a simple dish, although the price was a little steep for vegetables. This was a medium sized portion. But I guess we paid for the service and environment we dined in. The asparagus was quite juicy though, which was really nice.

We also ordered the Braised Cod Fish with Dried Bean-curd - $18.00

 
I think this dish was more worth it as Cod fish is one of the most expensive fish in the market and they were not very stingy in serving Cod fish that was quite a large thick chuck. The dried bean curd was mediocre though, only enhanced by the sauce which was not too bad. The broccoli was a little tasteless, luckily it's not the star of the dish.

Overall, if I had a choice, I don't think I will frequent this place often. Although parking is not a problem as there is free parking, the food there is purely mediocre and the only saving point is that it is quite high-class so the staff are pretty attentive.

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

After the bubble tea craze, came the cafe-hopping craze where diners choose to partake in this high-class lifestyle: sipping coffee/tea whilst enjoying the world go by. I popped into this branch of Hatched the other day after hearing a lot of positive reviews about it. I must say I was really delighted by everything in the quaint little shop.

The decor of the store was really cozy and channelled a really adorable vibe. Pictures of eggs were scrawled onto the blackboard where diners could check out what's on the menu quickly and decide on the specials of the day. The menu that was given was also really cute, i felt like i was reading a children's story book as it was smaller in size than other places and has a lot of cute egg pictures around!

I finally settled on the Shrooms Overload ($18.00)

 
I changed the bacon to zucchini instead as I wasn't a fan of bacon. I loved the egg as the egg yolk oozes out as you cut into it! Perfection! lol
There were also pickles inside which i HATED which made the bread a little sour and I didn't like it. But the huge portobella mushroom which sat right at the bottom of the burger was a delight! It complemented very really well. The zucchini was fantastic, (I might be bias due to my addiction to zucchini) it was soft and was really unique as I've never eaten it with in a burger. I also love their big thick cut of fries and the light olive oil that was sprinkled onto the salad at the side was a nice addition to the burger.

I love the whole concept of this cute little cafe but as most would know, the prices at cafes are usually a little pricey and one would usually grumble at the price for simple and cheap things mashed up together. I would hope that in due time, albeit wishful thinking, the prices will start to decrease so as to cater to a wider audience who would appreciate their egg-tastic food!

Categories : Korean | Food Court

This store is one of the stores in the food court of JEM. Situated at the uppermost floor, the food court boosts a large variety of different cuisines. From mini hot-pots to korean, it seems larger than the normal food court at other shopping malls.

After walking around the food court twice, I decided to try the korean stall as I could see them slowly brewing the ddeokbboki (korean rice cakes) at the counter! The steam that was rising from the pot felt like a tiny volcano waiting to erupt! Upon deliberation, i decided to try the hot stone bulgoli with vegetable soup ($7.30). I did not pick the ddeokbboki as it was about 5 rice cakes with cup noodles type of noodle for about $5.90 or so which i felt wasn't that worth it.

 
I choose the with with beef (option of chicken/beef/pork). The picture doesn't do the food justice as it was really good! I think it was worth the price. Just felt that there should be a tad less pepper sprinkled in so that I can taste the sweetness of the beef. As it was a vegetable soup, the vegetable was in abundance. They also added glass noodle in and I felt that for a small eater like me, I could do without the rice. The kimchi as a side dish also woke up my tastebuds and left me craving for more! It was not extremely spicy and was refreshing at the same time.

I also really like the auntie as she was a Korean (strong accent!) I asked for some sesame seed on my rice and she gladly obliged and while I was taking my cutlery she gave me even more! So generous smile

Although the food were mostly on the pricey side at that food court, I would go back to try this korean stall after I've finished trying the other stalls as the service and food they provided was really top notch!

Delicious! OK Jul 28, 2013

The A1 claypot house outlet chains seem to be opening one after another! This is evident of how good the food is! This branch that i went to seem to open not too long ago, maybe around june to july? The novelty of it attracted many people and one could see long queues at times during the peak lunch hour as office workers dash around for their food!

I decided to go for something light today and ordered the Cai Pu egg and spinach with 3 kinds of eggs.

 
Cai Pu egg ($8.90). This egg was normal and it wasn't the a little liquidy quite that i prefer. The egg was also a thin slice which doesn't explain the cost. As cai pu is quite cheap in the marketplace, I think that just threw a bunch of it into the wok as it was really quite salty! I had to drink the soup from the vege that i ordered.

 
Spinach with 3 types of eggs ($8.90). The soup was not up to standard and it wasn't as flavourful as the other places that i tried. Perhaps they show use the superior stock to enhance the taste. The vege portion was quite generous and one could see the large amount of salted egg floating around. The 2 other types of egg were not so evident.

The service staff were all very friendly although they were very busy attending to each customers. They had smiles on their faces despite of the business of the eatery.
I would definitely go back for the service but I think I would try the other dishes as there were more misses than hits this time round.
