Any later than 5.30pm, the entire Teck Chye Terrace would be occupied by cars.

 
8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro is the first shop at the lane. The shop front with glass panel and you can see almost all tables were taken. No extravagant interior and number of tables are limited due to the small area.

8 Degrees bubble tea S$3.80

 
Fried Intestine S$6.80

 
Over fried and were very dry sad For the first time we were grateful that the portion was small.

Fried Oyster Omelette S$7.80

 
Besides oysters, there were bean sprouts inside the omelette too.

 
XO sauce Wok Fried Chee Cheong Fun S$7.80

 
Salt overdosed T_____T

Plain mee sua S$3.80

 
Mee sua with flavourful soup base, didn't order Oyster mee sua since we already had Oyster omelette.

8 Degrees Snow Ice S$7.80

 
If I ever visit this place again, it's going to be this dessert's credit.

The mild sweetness of the milk flavour snow ice was really yummy, I felt like baby craving for milk.
Assorted fresh fruits of strawberries, kiwi and mango gave the snow ice a colorful presentation and soothing to one's throat after a meal.

Other than the Snow Ice, the rest of the dishes we tried were either normal or below average.
Not sure if it was our sheer luck, or that's their kitchen's usual standard.
If it's the latter, it's gonna be another example of "Crowded doesn't mean good" :X

Nana's Green Tea  Smile Jun 12, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Desserts and Cakes


Sounded like a tea-house, Nana's Green Tea serves Japanese food as well.

 
Some dining tables are designed like dressing tables, so special.

There isn't much variety in the menu, perhaps they are still new, but they serve really fast!

 
Lcocmoko Don $15.80
Beef patty served over warm Japanese rice garnished with lettuce, tomato, broccoli, and soft boil egg, accompanied with miso soup.

 
The soft boil egg was seducing me to suck it, beef patty covered with savoury sauce was yummy, and yes I gobbled up all the veg. The taste was very similar to what I had at Aloha Bugis+. As such, although the taste was consider good, but there wasn't any excitement for me.

Hairy Arms Monster (le hubby) finally came. He was too bloated to have dinner, so we shared dessert.

Macha Shira Parfait S11.80

 
Macha Ice cream with red bean paste, added some crunchy cereal and topped with whipped cream

Sharing this sweet little tower of parfait with Hairy Arms Monster turned out to be a romantic affair <3

Qi Wei Ji Bao 奇味鸡煲 Smile Jun 12, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Coffeeshop

Yi Restaurant 奇味鸡煲 is an "accidental" find when I went for food tasting at Domino's Pizza. The two eateries are next to each other.

 
When it comes to food, both my hubby and I are "adventurous". We believe in trying new things instead of patronising the same place for comfortable familiarity and "safe" food. We dashed into Yi Restaurant not knowing what to expect, just got an rough idea from the signboard that we would be having chicken in claypot.

I gotta use the word dashed, cos' it was freaking crowded! I was like flew towards the empty table and glued my butt on the seat in gan chiong style. After my victorious act, I saw a queue formed outside, phew...........

Much like an old coffee shop but the whole place was filled with exciting aroma from the claypots.

The restaurant owner had tried his best to make the place as cool as possible with many wall fans and aircon units. Perspiring was still unavoidable with a hot claypot on the table.

 
Instead of steamboat with clear soup, their signature 奇味鸡煲 comes with thick spicy gravy. They have 3 grades of spicy gravy base - MILD SPICY, MID SPICY, VERY SPICY, chose according to your preference and level of "spicy tolerance". Choice of frog's legs, whole chicken, half chicken or 2 chicken drums. We ordered 2 chicken drums with mid spicy base @S$25.50.

 
Beside chicken, green peppers, spices and cloves were soaked in the thick gravy. Chicken drum were cut into chunks and were braised with a nice color and texture tongue~~~ The fantastic gravy was obviously the main attraction of the crowd.

Help yourself at the fridge with assorted add-ons to your claypot @S$3.30 per plate. There's another fridge besides this with canned drinks @S$1.70 per can.

 
The big plate of fried bean curd skin was good enough for 4 pax.

 
I did a very clever thing, we shared it with the next table with a young couple. We gave them half of our fried bean curd skin in exchange for their mushrooms, heeheee.......... They found the portions too big for them to finish as well, so we made ourselves happy with this private exchange.

Didn't mind the big plate of green veg but $3.30 wasn't justify.

 
2 cakes of egg noodles were over-charged @S$3.30. But the egg noodles was cooked to perfection with the gravy, yummy-licious big time!

 
Besides sharing the fried bean curd skin with the next table, we shared this too lolxx.......

 
Not too glam, but very practical, heehee.......

As you can see, Yi Restaurant resembles Chicken Pot Restaurant in some ways.
The differences are Yi Restaurant's -
*pots are bigger, containing more gravy and it didn't dry up so fast;
*the gravy is more aromatic with interesting taste of different spices;
*side dishes were in big portions, which is too much for couple diners;
*the place is warm, not much of ambience.

While this may not be a ideal place for first date, it's definitely a place for food lovers.
Do come in singlets and shorts to beat the heat and be early to beat the crowd.

We had given our feedback on the big portions of the side dishes, hoping that they will take into consideration and make some changes. Meanwhile, it's better to gather 4 pax or more for this 奇味鸡煲 feast.

Discovered this place when we went NTUC X-tra at Changi Business Park

 
Decor in 1960s nostalgia feel.

There is a clear big board at the side of entrance with mouth watering pics of dishes, but no prices indicated -___-

 
Interior with tables and chairs/stools in 1960s coffee shop style. The high ceiling created a spacious environment to dine in comfortably.Interior with tables and chairs/stools in 1960s coffee shop style. The high ceiling created a spacious environment to dine in comfortably. There's a decorative wall very nicely done up but I was the only one taking pics and gotten weird stares from people -____-||| The menu is like a table mat, same mouth watering pictures as the board outside, but with prices of course.

Premium Loin Ribs S$8.50

 
Pepperish garlic soup with tender ribs, a very simple dish, yet it's so enjoyable.

Purpose of this pic is to show the size of the rib.

 
Soup is refillable upon request.

 
Drinking soup with spoon is a hassle. I know it's bad table manners, but I'll forgo manners for pleasure.
Gobble straight from the rooster bowl!!!

Braised Beancurd Skin with Chicken Feet S$3.50

 
Bean curd skin not fried till golden brown, but the pair of chicken feet was crazy delicious. Some "skills" acquired to eat this: Bite the claws into your mouth, suck out all the skin and meat, spit out the little bones like bullets, heehee.....

Salted Vegetable S$2.20

 
This is my all time favourite dish with rice, porriage or rice noodles.

Braised Pig's Trotters $6.50

 
Came with chewy pig skin and nice portion of lean meat. It's tender but not mushy, nicely braised without being too salty.

We order a bowl of plain rice S$0.70/bowl and lime juice for S$1.70. Total bill was $23.50, which I think it's very reasonable with a comfortable aircon environment.

Brotzeil offers German beer which almost every table was having.

 
Chic and contemporary setting.

 
Had to give German beer a miss cos' hubby need to drive.
He insisted on ordering this Apple Spritzer @S$8.50.

 
Schweinshaxn (Pork Knuckle) S$36.00

 
The enormous pork knuckle came with generous serve of yummy potato salad, greens and a dip sauce.
Good for 2 person, unless you have a boundless appetite.

 
The pork knuckle was as crunchy as it looked. Each bite was accompanied with crunchy noises lolxx... The meat was surprisingly juicy, won't consider it very tender but it's chewy without being tough. It's very much like our chinese roast pork belly, very sinful indeed. But we aren't saints, we aren't super models, so we are allowed to sin and eat, YES!!!

This is totally worth it and the price is reasonable too.

Napkin Dumplings S$5.00

 
It's a mistake to order this as the Pork Knuckle was already more than enough for the 2 of us.

It tasted like nothing but flour, so we didn't finish it.

 
Overall, it's a nice dine and wine place without ripping you off, happy.
