Prawn Noodles OK Jul 28, 2013   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Coffeeshop | Noodles

 
Prawn Noodles ($3), not that good.
The prawn was not very fresh as the shell was sticking to the meat a little. One good thing about this is that there were quite a lot of vegetables inside (kangkong and bean sprouts). Oh! Another good thing about this is that the fish cakes were quite thick and there were more than 3 pieces! I think i was given more as the owner seems to know my parents now. haha!
The soup broth was a little salty and didn't have the nice and strong prawn taste which i prefer );

Maybe i should stick to the bak chor mee the next time if I'm going back there to have breakfasts with my parent's friends. haha!

Back for more! OK Jul 28, 2013

I came back to try the ngoh hiang dishes at night after sometime from my previous visit.

 
What I like the most was the sauce with peanut provided to dip the ngoh hiang in! It smells really fragrant and adds to the taste of the ngoh hiang in your mouth. There was also numerous peanut bits which further enhances the taste. I choose the tofu, some type of fish cake with garnishes in it and the acclaimed ngoh hiang. (P.S. this ngoh hiang store is quite famous for it's ngoh hiang)
The tofu was ok, deep fried to a crispy brown but I felt that the corners were a little too hard and dry.
The fish cake was quite interesting due to the little garnishes in it, not to bad.
Lastly, the ngoh hiang was pretty good. It taste a little different from the other places as it was handmade but i wouldn't say it's out of this world.
Beehoon taste the same as the one from morning so they probably keep frying the whole day through which makes it very fresh.

The total cost was about $3.50-$4 which I felt was a little pricey for these few ingredients. I should probably stick to their breakfast 'menu' so as to avoid the heavy cost.

Nostalgia OK Jul 28, 2013

Categories : Coffeeshop | Noodles

Eating at a coffee shop always brings me back to the younger days where uncles would gather at a table, drinking their coffees and talking at the loudest volume ever imaginable in their hokkien language whilst the drinks stall auntie would shout out random words from a mile away to take people's orders.
My family and I went to this coffee shop situated near out house which my parents seem to frequent with their friends. Surrounded my HDB flats, this was a place to meet for a quick chit chat with your neighbours.
We were there went the place was very packed and diners with sleepy children were waiting around for their food and there was surprisingly a long relatively long queue at this stall!

 
I tried the bak chor mee for $3 and I must say it is very flavourful. One could taste the nice-smelling sinful pork oil in your mouth as the individual gulps down mouth after mouth of mee. The fishball was a little salty though, but since it's not really the main ingredient, it shall be forgiven. The soup was laden with MSG which makes you want to drink it but know you should't. I love the combination of tomato ketchup and chilli with the springy noodles and the meat was not tough which makes it pretty good.

Overall, I think that this place would be a nice place to dine with your friends and neighbours but i don't see myself travelling all the way from a far as the food is not extremely superb.

Oishi! Smile Jul 28, 2013

I couldn't resist visiting this branch since I was so near to the school! Japanese outlet in a school!? The students must either be getting more pocket money or the prices at this branch is relatively cheaper! Sadly, the prices are the same, haha! Guess the younger generations are able to afford more and more!

 
Being adventurous, I decided to try the Teriyaki Chicken Sumi Udon: Tender chicken slices and vegetables cooked in our sweet teriyaki sauce dipped in steaming hot broth ($13.99). I think Sumi means black charcoal? I was quite apprehensive about trying this dish as it was made from charcoal and one would usually think that charcoal = inedible. I could not taste the difference between the normal udon and sumi udon, was was a little different was perhaps the soup broth? It tasted a bit sweeter. There were about 4-5 pieces of chicken strips and some fishcakes, no more no less than outside.

 
I also ordered the kakiage (Shredded vegetable tempura - $2.29). As i wanted some vegetables to go with my meal. The only tradeoff was that it has to be fried :[ Decreased the healthy value of it.

 
Lastly, the mandatory the deep fried salmon slices ($2.29). The pieces given here was more or less similar to the branches outside so they didn't give lesser just because they taught that students wouldn't eat so much. haha!

I would most probably try the promotional items they have on which seems to attract most students in the next time round!

Vietnam gem  Smile Jul 27, 2013

Categories : Vietnamese | Café | Halal

After craving for vietnamese pho for so long after my trip back from vietnam, I've been meaning to go to one place that could match up to the standards there. Sadly, I have yet to find one that's as good as the one there!
The opening of SO PHO @ JEM was a delight to me as it is relatively near my house and most of the vietnamese food are pretty far away.
Decided to try it when the queue wasn't as long during the lunch/dinner hours.

I think most of the staff there were very new and hence they seemed a little clueless about the menu. My server had to flip the pages when he was repeating the orders back to me. Forgivable as i believe it is a new establishment and they were mostly newly employed hence the unfamiliarity.

 
I ordered the Beef Brisket and Beef Balls Noodle Soup which cost $9.80. I think it was quite worth it as the amount of beef given was very generous. I wanted to ask them to cook the beansprouts for one first but I was afraid they won't know what to do and would tell me that the vietnamese style was to eat it kind of raw. haha! Beef Ball was springy and nice to chew and the beef were all pretty big portion. The noodles they gave was also very slow and was a nice complement to the beef. The soup itself was really good! But I felt that it was a little too sweet, maybe there were too much beef goodness inside. haha!

I think that this dish is not too bad but I wouldn't say that it reminds me of vietnam. Maybe with a better touch to the environment, the owner could boost the ambience of the place? There are also other similar dishes such as beef brisket itself/beef balls itself if i'm not wrong and it's a little cheaper than the combination of both? Perhaps those who are not that hungry could opt for those dishes instead!

With the close proximity to my house, I will definitely go back and try the other dishes!
