Taiwanese Food OK Dec 24, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Taiwanese | Chinese | Restaurant

5 Little Bears is located conveniently at Far East Plaza, and serves popular Taiwanese food like Oyster Mee Sua, Braised Pork Belly Rice & Salted Crispy Chicken.

 
The inside of the restaurant is free seating style where you have to order your food at the counter, and they will call your number to pick it up when the food is ready.

For my meal today, I ordered a portion of the Salted Crispy Chicken & a bowl of Oyster Mee Sua.

 
For the Salted Crispy Chicken, I felt that it was too dry and very hard. I was quite disappointed with this dish as all I could taste is the flour and hardly any chicken.

 
The Oyster Mee Sua however was not bad. It's flavourful and silky smooth, easy enough to eat with just a spoon.

Even though we visited the restaurant during lunch time, there was plenty of seats and not much of a crowd. Great place to get a quick meal.

Japanese Yakiniku Charcoal Grill Smile Dec 19, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | BBQ

 
Arashi Yakiniku Charchoal Grill is located at Boat Quay along Singapore river, a popular location among foreigners & Singaporeans alike for great seafood and some beer.

 
The restaurant emits a strong Japanese ambiance with their spotless clean wooden furniture and Tatami rooms. Their high quality grill system were also specially imported from Japan to ensure that customers do not leave smelly at the end of their meal.

 
The Ninniku Gohan ($4.80) is a must-order. The Garlic Fried Rice is light with a hint of saltiness + the fragrance of fresh garlic. Very yummy indeed. At only $4.80 for a bowl, this is definitely one of the nicest yet super value for money Garlic Fried Rice that I've had.
Japanese Tenderloin ($68.80)

And of cos, we can't miss out on the BBQ meat.
Kurobuta Pork Collar ($20.80)

The meat served at Arashi is definitely the best. Look at how pretty they look with the nice fats distributions.

 
The meat cooks really fast due to how thinly sliced they are, but yet they not too thin that you can hardly taste them. In fact they are just the right sizes to enjoy mouth watering juicy meat that literally melts in your mouth.

Meat are also served with various dripping sauces and my favourite is a ponzu sauce that is just a little tangy - perfect for bringing out the flavours and open up my appetite for more food.

 
Other than meat, Arashi also have the Assorted Seafood Platter ($28.80). The salmon comes marinated in a Japanese sweet-ish sauce, which I'm not really a fan of. However I do enjoy the scallop & tiger prawns which were very fresh.

Overall, I would say that the food here is really fantastic with one of the best services I had received.

We came in a group of about 10 pax and had one of the rooms to ourselves. 2 very polite service staffs attended to our table and throughout the meal, and they were very attentive to change our plates, the charcoals and topped up our tea.

They seems well-trained as well, and was able to recommend sauces to go with each type of meat.

Definitely highly recommended for high quality Japanese Charcoal Grill at affordable prices. A great place to hang with a group of friends.

Worst Fruit Juice Ever! Cry Nov 27, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Juices

 
This fruit juice stall is located at the 2nd floor of Far East Plaza, near to where a few of the mobile phone shops are.

The fruit stall had a open kitchen concept which allows you to see what is happening from in front of the counter, and this is what I saw:

I ordered a cup of Honey Drew juice from the only staff in the stall and watched as he cut up a SINGLE slice of Honey Drew, and blend it together with a full cup of water & some ice. It's not even a juicer, it's an ice blender!

The slice of Honey Drew wasnt even big, it's the same as what they are selling for $0.80 in the stall. The cup of Honey Drew "juice" caused me $2, so am I paying $1.20 for a cup of water?

 
So this is my cup of Honey Drew "juice", which tasted exactly like what it is. A cup of water with bits of blended Honey Drew.

Never ever going to buy anything from this stall again and I would highly recommend everyone else not to as well.

Expensive Seafood OK Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Seafood

Nested along Sembawang Road, near Nee Soon, The Famous Kitchen is a Singapore style Chinese restaurant with live seafood.

 

 
The restaurant have both inside and outside seatings. We chose to have the outside seating as the weather was great with the sky still bright in the early evening.

The place was rather empty as we were there at about 5.30pm, not quite your usual dinner time yet.

 

 
We ordered a plate of Salted Egg Pork Ribs ($12) and was surprised to see that it's rather different from the ones we normally see in Singapore. Usually the salted egg yolk is made into a sauce, but here at The Famous Kitchen, it's more like a topping of minced Salted Egg.

I do taste salted egg yolk flavour being infused into the pork ribs though, so I guess it's probably marinated before being fried as well. Quite nice & something different.

 
Garlic Stir Fry Kai Lan ($12)
The Garlic Stir Fry Kai Lan here is quite fresh & crispy, lightly flavoured with chunks of garlic. A great palate cleanser.

 
We also ordered Singapore iconic dish - Chili Crab at $58 for 850grams. Rather expensive in my opinion.

The Chili Crab is great, but not exceptional. The sauce leans towards the spicier type and goes great with the small fried man tous ($3 for 6). Good thing is that the crab is very fresh & juicy.

The service here is okay, there wasnt much customers around when I was there so they were pretty quick. But you can tell that the staffs here are trained to sell when they recommend you dishes and drinks, trying to get you to order more.

Most of the seafood here are marked as seasonal prices, so you should probably find out more from the staff before ordering.

A small little cafe tucked away in a corner of Robertson Quay, Bridger's Cafe is owned by a Korean couple & had a seating capacity of about only 20.

But don't let it's appearance fool you, this little cafe serves great quality food at humble pricings, lovingly made & served by the Korean owners themselves.

 
Turkish Eggs with Premium Sausages and Mozzarella Cheese ($5.80)
The Turkish Eggs is quite a delightful item on the menu, with a thin layer of slightly runny eggs with tomato paste, topped with Mozzarella Cheese & Premium Sausage. I especially like salty & slightly tangy flavour of this dish. The toast is abit hard, but does goes well with the eggs.

The downside for this dish is that the portion is quite small. But it's really cheap so I guess it's okay if you treat it as an appetizer.

 
Smoked Salmon Carpaccio Salad ($12.50)
I'm absolutely in love with this dish! Comes with Norwegian Smoked Salmon, lettuces, Mesclun leaves, poached eggs & potato, with a red wine + sesame dressing, a delicious plate of salad if you like Salmon.

The sauce is what really sold me. It's tangy & bursting of flavours that I cant get enough of. Dont forget to use the toast to soak up the remaining of this savoury goodness when you are done with the salad! lol
