an evening in Amazonia Bistro OK Feb 22, 2016

Categories : American | Burgers and Sandwiches | Kids-Friendly

I recently went to Amazonia in a group tasting organized by our good friend. The place is basically a large playground for kids and the bistro is one corner to serve food and drinks for both parents and kids when they spend fun time inside

The place is nice , cosy, just a bit nosiy , expected because kids are having good fun.

The first is apple juice , provided by the bistro, it cost about $5 per glass, taste sweet. With slices of apple

The next is Caesar Salad, we had 2 plate to share among the group , so each have a bite , it taste fresh, tasty, and the bread is crispy. You can see photo that I uploaded for the dishes I mention here
Salad price is $13.80 each

The main course is CHEF NASI GORENG, fried rice. The portion offered was larger than usual portion , with 2 drum stick instead of just one in a standard serving. Also the satay is 4 stick instead of 2 stick in standard serving. Each standard serving is $12.70 .

We had 3 of these fired rice to share among the group so each got a small bite to taste. The rice is nice, moist and not too dry. The fried drum stick is very tasty, not dried, and goes well with the chilli. The satay is also very nice. I like that it is serve hot , unlike some places the dish are put together with the rice pre-fired and the drum stick pre-fried, so its served cold. At least the one we had was hot and tasty.

Another main dish we tried is SPICY GARLIC TIGER PRAWN, which is consist of 2 tiger prawn and white rice. Each standard serving is $15.20
While the tiger prawn is indeed look big but since its fried with garlic, the meat shrink to small portion, so dont be surprise that if you remove the shell of the tiger prawn you dont see much meat. Also we had 3 plate of this to share among the group of 11, we each have half side of the prawn to have a taste. It is tasty, with the spicy and garlic smell. But since its not much meat, really this dish is not that exciting. Since its serve with white rice, I dont think the white rice can do anything to help elevate this dish.

Lastly we get to taste the dessert , a smallish CHOCOLATE FONDANT with ICE CREAM. each of us has one quarter of the dessert with is a spoonful and its enough to taste the rich chocolate and the vanilla ice cream is a good pairing. Would recommend this .

In summary, this is a nice place for some games, we tried a mini golf game in the dark and visited the Party room. So the bistro is really a complimentary to the whole place. Nevertheless, the dishes is tasty, and I recommend the dessert.

Fu Lin Men Dou Lao Food Tasting  Smile Jan 10, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese Steamboat/Hot Pot

Fu Lin Men Dou Lao is a 3 storey restaurant along the North Canal road row of shophouses. Its behind the Boat Quay area. The restaurant serves dou lao hot pot, the soup base is special and there are 4 type to choose from.
I have taken some pictures and post on my blog, http://andyip68.blogspot.sg/ you can click to view the close up picture of the food served. Overall the ingredients are fresh and tasty. The soup and the sauce is also authenthic because they hire a chef from Chine who are well know in imperial dishes. Definitely a must try.
We tried a few dishes and following are the review

1. Fortune Chalice which is premium sea cucumber, abalone, mushroom imperial sauce on rice $38. Delicious but I feel the taste did not infuse into the rice, so you get sauce on outside and steam rice on the inside. Also did not find any slice of abalone. But the taste is there.

2.Wild Bamboo pith with Fresh Prawn Paste $18, this is delicious and the prawn paste is indeed very fresh.

3. Freshly culutured sae prawn with marbled beef $18
This is signature dish and the beef and prawn are fresh, good presentation and delicious. I recommend this dish

4 Family bliss freshly handcrafted Dou Lao Meat balls 6 pcs, $7
This is value for money and fresh paste I will recommend this as well. One of the meat ball has chocolate inside, so its a unique taste

5. Bountiful Blessings of Three teasures $ 28
(Morel, Matsutake, Lion's Mane mushroom) these are freshly served and once go into the soup base, its very soft to the taste

6. Roars of success Lion's mane mushroom and Chicken fillet. $12
Great name and the mushroom and chicken fillet are deep fried but after its dip into the hot pot, the soup base fuse with the meat and makes it so delicious.

7.Beer Marinated Marbled Beef $28
This is a must have and must try, beef dip into bowl of beef before dip into hot pot, you can still taste the beef and soup fused meat. Dont dip too long to prevent overcook the beef

8 Premier Oxtail $10
This is quite ordinary and can do without actually.

9 Fresh beancurd pockets with fresh seafood paste $10
The presentation for this is great and I recommend this dish as its delicious , melt in your mouth, just dont over cook it in the hot pot

10- Fresh Oriental greens and wild and and cultivated mushroom $10
More fresh greens  , I do recommend this so as to balance the meat with fresh greens

11. House of gold Pineapple glutinous rice $9
This is very sweet dessert. If you like sweet dessert you can try this .

12. Grand imperial premium bird's nest $28
Yes bird nest but the texture is not the clear soup type but like glue. So actually you have a slight taste of bird nest without actually seeing it.

Hot pot soup base there are 4 type 
There are the spicy one, the clear soup one, herbal one and the special soup base

 
Recommended Dish(es):  Beer Beef,Prawn with Beef,Imperial soup base,6 type of meat balls,Imperial abalone rice
