Toast Box OK Sep 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Coffeeshop

There are not many food choices at the Pasir Ris Sports and Recreation Centre. Other than McDonalds, the other choice is Toast Box which is a causal place for dining after workout or just have a simple meal here. On their menu, other than the normal bread and coffee, they also serve "heavier" Asian one-dish meal such as Laksa. This time, I ordered Laksa and my hubby ordered curry chicken which comes with rice.

Laksa was fairly nice but of course, cannot be compared to Katong Laksa.

 
Hubby said the curry chicken was nice. I said if it comes with bread instead of rice, I would order that in future.

We booked a table at Ban Heng restaurant which is situated at Aranda Club, near Downtown East in Pasir Ris.
Cold platter of fried spring rolls, bak kwa, shrimp salad.

 
Braised duck meat. The meat was quite tender and well-flavoured. The rest of the dishes were decent but not really very outstanding. Generally, we felt that the food was on a high sodium side. My aunts did feedback to them.

 

 

 

 
This is my all-time favourite Chinese dessert - Yam paste. They served it together with pumpkin paste too. Nice combination.

 
Will only come here for family lunch or dinner celebration, probably is not really a good place to come with friends.

My colleague suggested going to Pizzeria Mozza for dinner after our trip to the ArtScience Museum. Initially, the rest of us were quite skeptical as we thought he was joking, to dine at a celebrity chef restaurant at Marina Bay Sands. However, it was for real. We then thought, since it was our pay day, why not gave it a try? smile

The restaurant was very crowded but luckily, there was no queue forming yet. The environment was quite dim but very vibrant. Compared to the high class sister restaurant next door, Osteria Mozza, this restaurant is more casual. We felt very relaxed and comfortable in there. Their table mats were very interesting, all having different designs, some with quizzes, for you to ponder before your meal is served. Many of the words in the menu were in Italian, and we couldn't quite understand. We asked the staff to translate and explain to us the names. They were very willing to help us and always served us with a smile. At first, we were attracted by an item in the menu, ie fried pig's ear and we actually ordered that. unfortunately, the item was not available.

Since this restaurant's specialty is their pizzas, we definitely had to order that! They have so many different pizzas and the price ranges from $24 to $37. We were seriously spoit for choices. There were 5 of us and the staff told us to get 3 pizzas first, should be suffice. We ordered friend potatoes with rosemary and chickpeas, and also mussels for our sides. The potatoes tasted really good but the mussels were quite small. We loved the sauce that came with it though.

 

 

 
Complimentary crackers were served to us in a brown paper bag before our dishes were served. Nice gesture!

 

 
Funghi Misti, Fontina, Taleggio, Thyme ($30)
Generous fillings of a variety of mushrooms with herbs. Lovely!

 
Bacon, salami, fennel sausage, pancetta, tomato & mozzarella Pizza. Definitely a hot favourite for carnivores! A galore of meat! ($37)

 
Pizza alla benno: Speck, pineapple, jalapeño, mozzarella & tomato, really nice as well. ($35)

 
All the pizzas tasted so superb! I would definitely come again with other friends or family members to try out the other types of pizza here! Moreover, it was affordable. Each of us paid only $32 for the great meal.

Little Durian Stall at Pasir Ris Smile Sep 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian

This is a small durian stall at Pasir Ris neigbourhood area. In fact, I didn't really think much of it and having stayed near this area for near 6 years, this was the first time hubby and I tried the durian here! The shopfront doesn't have a proper signboard. It was under the signboard name of the barber shop next door "Ten Dollar.Com". However, after I had read famous blogger, Dr Leslie Tay's (http://ieatishootipost.sg/2012/07/kong-lee-hup-kee-trading-tale-of-durian.html) new food guide, I the realized that this was actually a hidden gem!

 

 

 

 
It was the durian season and hubby had a strong craving for durian. Thus, he decided to buy "Mao Shan Wang" from this durian stall. The uncle was very friendly and he asked us whether we wanted him to open the durian and packed the fruits in the styrofoam box. We paid $35 for the durian and it was charged according to weight. Thus, it was different from what Dr Leslie had reviewed last year. In his blog, he said that it was charged around $30 per styrofoam box.

Supper at Geylang Smile Sep 25, 2013

Categories : Coffeeshop

It had been quite a while since we patronized this Yong He Dao Jiang You Tiao Da Wang. I remember it used to create hype here but nowadays, as we went more globalized, we can find more similar items being sold here in all parts of Singapore.

 
They now introduced more varieties of dim sum into their menu.

 

 
You Tiao used to be much bigger size, I think. Now, it seemed quite normal, like those that I can buy from the neighbourhood food court/ market. Nevertheless, it tasted good when dipped in the soya milk.

 
Soya pudding was smooth. Not bad.

 
Intestine mee sua instead of oyster mee sua is being sold here. This was quite good and you just need a spoon to eat this.

 
Pork Floss with Egg Cripsy Puff. Quite nice.. I used to like it better.
