Japanese bento Smile Nov 13, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi | Omakase

Affordable and high quality Japanese food that located at Tanjong pagar. I personally find the salmon set most value for money. The salmon is super fresh. I love their torch salmon and teriyaki salmon fin. Is full of collagen. Yum yum. Comes with a bowl of pipping hot thin udon for a rainy day. The chawamushi is full of roe and it adds on to the freshness of this dish. Value for money and must try

The pancake is very crispy TOP with very fresh seafood. The Chef is very generous with the ingredients and you can taste seafood with each mouthful of pancake. 
The Cha Jiang Mian is another one that is worth trying. Not too sweet and the noodles is very "q"

It been a while since i visit Beauty world centre. This place is a super old shopping centre that used to be very famous and popular. They are also well known for food at their food centre that is located at the top level of their mall.
little i know that there are also new restaurants open there now. there are 2 korean restaurants next to each other and this time round, i try JooMak as it is highly recommended by my colleague.

The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. i tried their korean pancake, black bean noodles and their fried chicken. personally i love their korean pan cake and the black bean sauce noodles. the fried chicken is a little too dry for me.
As usual, they usually serve a lot of side dishes like kimchi..and is refillable.

 
Black bean sauce noodles ~ $12 (small). this one taste better than the one i tried at lotte world haha. despite this is cooked in Singapore. The noodles is very Q and the black bean sauce is just nice.

 
Korean seafood pancake -$15 Super generous with the ingredients. Not too oily and you can taste the egg with lots of seafood in each bite. thumbs up

 
fried chicken ~ $20 (half). i ordered the original version but they also do offer the sweet & spicy season chicken / garlic soy sauce seasoned chicken / sliced green onion seasoned chicken with mustard sauce too. the chicken outer crust is too dry for me but overall the chicken is ok

 
overall
Food : ***1/2
Customer service : ***1/2
Price : ***
Will i come again? Definitely. they also sell korean BBQ which i am dying to try!

Back for more @ Bali Thai Smile Apr 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Indonesian | Vegetarian | Halal

Return for more Thai food @ Bali Thai. I have tried many Thai restaurant and Bali Thai is definitely one of my favourite ones so far. I have been to their outlet @ Suntec and very impressed with their food. so there i am again, this time round ~ Nex.

We ordered their set meal of 58 dollars for 2 pax which i feel is quite value for money. However, my stomach actually craves for some glass noodles ( tang hoon) so the total bill adds up to about 90++ inclusive of GST and service charge.
The set meal comes with Tom Yam soup, green curry, fried vege, thai fish cake, desert and also sweet and spicy fish.

 
green curry. not too spicy and too thick for me. the sauce goes very well with rice. chicken meat is very tender and well cooked

 
sweet and spicy fish. Overall the chili sauce is ok for me except i find the fish is too oil after deep fried.

 
fried vege. nothing special but just add some greens to your dinner lol.

 
thai fish cake. their signature. =) love this

 
tom yam soup. i still prefer those not clear type. generous with ingredients. very light taste but slightly spicy for me

 
stirred fried glass noodles ( tang hoon) . not in the set meal but we order it seperately. the noodles is so good that u will ask for more.

 
desert. Mango pudding.somehow i feel the pudding is those off-the shelve type lol.

I am honoured to be invited by Street directory for this food review session. and Many thanks to Vincent from Wan He Lou for recommending to us the yummy dishes from the restaurant.
Wan He Lou is a well known household name for their signature lobster porridge despite they are only open for less than a year ( going to be a year soon). They have built their reputation with many fusion Chinese cuisines and aim to share the joy of enjoying food with you! A cosy set up restaurant that can sit approx 70 - 80 pax including 2 VIP rooms aim to serve you savoury dishes with sincerity. According to Vincent, they serve dishes across all dialect groups and their creative chef will experiment with new dishes from time to time. So fret not, new items are added to the menu to give you a different dining experience.
They also do offer customized menu for your special occasions which is especially good for those who wants to hold corporate events or having special guest. As they are pretty crowded during weekends, reservations are preferred.

so here are some of the highly recommended dishes by Vincent. they are also the most popular dishes among their customers.
Signature Lobster Porridge ~ something not to be missed! 2 pax (approx 350g) from $29.90 onwards

 
According to Vincent, it is very important to tke the lobster out of the porridge when it is served. The lobster will be overcooked and the meat will be too tough. They only use spiny lobster that is approx 300g each as the lobster meat will not be too tough and the meat will be very sweet and juicy. The preparation of the lobster porridge is broken down in to many stages which the most important one will be preparing the broth for the porridge! My first taste on the porridge is that broth brings a very refreshing and rich. The porridge is cooked in teo chew style which means you can taste the richness of the broth on its own! The lobster is well cooked and not tough. with the fragrant taste of ginger, it not only remove the fishy smell of the lobster, it also enhance the taste as well. Thumbs up for this dish!
Crispy Lotus with salted egg ~ A great snack for beer / TV session!!! (s) $11.90 (m) $19.90

 
A wonderful snack that is still crispy even when it is cold. According to Vincent, the preparation time for this dish is very long especially for the lotus. The smell of this dish is so overwhelming that you can smell it from a far distance. It is cooked with salted egg ( just like salted egg prawn) , sprinkly with curry leaves. This dish is so addictive that i couldn't stop eating it! Thumbs up for this dish too!
Fresh Vegetable Juice ~ Healthy Refreshing juice for a hot and sunny afternoon! $3.00

 
i was quite sceptical on how good this drink will be especially when Vincent introduce the ingredients of it. but to my surprise, this drink taste heavenly. the after taste is very refreshing and cooling. It gives a cooling sensation every single sip lol. It is also very appetizing too!
Cod fish with spicy sauce ~ Choose how you want your cod dish to be cooked! (s) $29.90 (m) $46.90

 
Not many restaurant offers the option of how you want your cod fish to be cooked,seriously. They are either black pepper or steam or deep fried. But here, they provide you the option of how you want it to be! How nice! Personally i love this dish too! the fish is very crispy despite it is covered with sauce. it is extremely fresh and according to Vincent, they only use premium ingredients in all the cuisines! Perfect dish to go with a plain bowl of rice!
Vincent also took this chance to remember two new dishes to us. Salt Pepper San Yao ( also known as huai san) and also Prawn ball with aloe vera and Osmanthus.
Salt Pepper San Yao

 

 
Honestly speaking, my mum always cook san yao soup but not deep fried them and this is my first time tasting this dish. This dish is very special as San yao is quite tasteless and you use the salt and pepper to bring out the flavor of this dish. It is very crispy both inside and outside. Personally i quite like this dish too!
Prawn ball with aloe vera and Osmanthus.

 
The prawns are very fresh and the texture is very good. So you can see that the chef actually control "the fire" very well to ensure that the prawns are not overcooked. However, the sauce may make the prawn loses a little crispiness on the outside (not sure if it is intentional but it is still as good). Also,the fragrant of the osmanthus brings this dish to another level! If you love osmanthus and aloe vera, you will like this dish.
