Wheeler's Yard Smile Dec 27, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Steaks and Grills | Burgers and Sandwiches | Brunch

Wheeler's Yard is a place where food & bike come together "hidden" in an industrial estate. I will not know this "ulu" place if not of the ravings from other bloggers. I love the spacious and unpretentious layout and I can totally imagine coming here with a group of friends to just eat and be fat. Heehee

 

 
More seating outside the cafe!

It's a self service concept here, so proceed to the counter to place your order. Get your buzzer and wait patiently for your food.

 
Our orders:

Hum Bao Bao - $23.90

Grilled Chicken - $17.90

Cappuccino - $5

Root Beer - $3.90

 
The grilled chicken was fairly normal.

 
Super big burger with 2 thick patty & oozing cheese! The portion was humongous and I couldnt finish myself. No wonder most of those who ordered the dish were guys..

 
I was deciding between Soursop Meringue Tart ($7.50) and Horlicks Tart ($7.90) as both sound more interesting than the commonly available fruit and chocolate tarts. Since hubby decided to "abandon" me by not sharing the load of the dessert with me, I went ahead to order the Soursop Meringue Tart which I know he will not like it being a boring and unadventurous eater. >.<

 
Guess what? I loved it and I thought it was the best order of the day! The tart was crispy & hard, just the way I like the crust to be. The soursop filling was refreshing yet not overpowering. This is definitely something that I will order again. =)

Shangri La - The Line Smile Dec 20, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : International | Hotel | Seafood | Buffet



Eating buffet is definitely an art. How to eat everything, making every penny worthwhile, and without making yourself uncomfortably full..... Well, FOLLOW ME as I embarked the journey for your eye feasting!

First Stop --> Seafood

Well, obviously this was the most expensive session in the whole resturant. As a seasoned buffet eater, how could I not start off with all the sea treasures? What The Line offered was nothing fanciful, but juz a pure heart in just serving fresh seafood! Hmmm.. I could almost taste the sea salt myself! Ha..

 
Prawn, Mussel, Crabs

The crabs were a bit, crabby to handle though... Could have been better if they were being shelled! But the prawns were great! Juicy & Sweet!

 
Oysters

Not a great fan of oysters myself. Anyway, review from my colleagues were, Osyters were indeed good, without the stingy smell.

Second Stop --> Sashimi

Another must visit stop! The sashimi would be freshly cut when you make your order over the counter. They have tuna, salmon and squid. ^__^

 
Chunky slices of sashimi

 
If ya dun like raw fish, they have sushi as well. But then you lugi lah, sashimi at Sakae cost $6.50 (red plate) while california roll cost $1.90. Ya noe wat I meant hor? Hee

Third Stop --> Salad Bar

Well, not a must to stop here though. But I guess a bit of vege can ease the tension on your tummy.

 

 
Fourth Stop --> Grilled Session

 

Roast Chicken & Potato, Grilled fish & Prawn

 
Grilled fish & Prawn

The prawn were..... simply magnificent, terrifying! I could not find a better word to descible. As an advice, take the grilled prawn first. Coz it always run out and ya got to wait for the chef to grill in the next round.

Fifth Stop --> Cooked Food

 
Pasta, Lasagna

 
Chinese Cooked Food

 
Dim Sum

Sixth Stop -->Indian Food

 


Kebabs and Naans

Oh, I like the naans here. Even though they are taboo when eating buffet, I cant help but to take just one small slice...keke

 
Satay, roti prata, mutabak

Finally, the highlight of the day ---> Desserts!!!! SCREAM PPL!!

 
Chocolate Fondue

Unlike those pathetic fountain, this is Five Storey high at The Line! WOW!

 
Cupcakes

 
Pretty Dessert

 

 
Finally, end off with coffee and tea ( free-flow)... What a satisfying lunch!

Marutama Ramen Smile Dec 20, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Ramen


I have to say this is one of my favourite ramen shop in Singapore. Even though the variety is limited, the price is not exactly cheap, I am still here for a couple of time liao. That's rare okay! Consider that I go round eating, to spend $$$ in the same shop again and again, that says a lot about the quality wor.

The ramen here reminds me of the ones that I ate in Japan itself. The soup base is more tasty, and every ingredient is prepared delicately. In fact, even though the soup base is considered more salty ( but bearable), I will still finish every single drop.. 

 
Tamago Ramen 

This was the basic ramen, with just seaweed and one slice chao siew. The chao siew was tender, with just enuff fats to give a soft touch. The ramen was Q to the max. Well, I dunno whether it would become soggy if left for a period of time or not. Coz that will never happen! I can finish the whole bowl like within 15mins... Haiz, a bit wasted hor. I was actually "complaining" that the ramen was too much at first, but I still finished everything, ramen and soup...

 
Aosa Ramen 

This was the ramen that I would usually ordered. Basically it was just additional seaweed ( $4 extra) on top of the basic one. I simply love the seaweed here! It was definitely different, and I dun seemed to eat it elsewhere. So no choice, whenever I got the craving for the seaweed, got to come here... The chef " cunning" lah, used special ingredient...

 
Ajituke Tamago 

Well, the ramen doesnt come with the egg, so got to order it as a side order. But the egg was actually cooked the same way in Japan oso. Dunno how they do it, it was not the half-cooked one like Ya-Kun, nor was it fully cooked.. It tasted well cooked, but the egg yolk was still semi-watery.. There was so much "knowledge" in making the perfect egg man.. Heng, I'm only "responsible" to eat and not to prepare!! Hoho

Anyway, I think everything here is good! The egg, the seaweed, the daikon, the char siew, the ramen, the soup... Must try!

Asia Grand Smile Dec 20, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong

To start of, I'm not a great fan of Chinese food. I thought they taste almost the same everywhere,with not much novelty. My mum can cook as well leh! But Asia Grand is one of the few that I think scores well in service, food and presentation.

 
Peking DuckThe staff would push a trolley with the roasted duck to your table. You could enjoy the visual effect of how skillful they were at slicing thin layers of the duck skin and then wrapped them in the crepe skins. Great for me, coz I dun like to dirty my own hands =p

 
Double Boiled Whole Winter Melon Soup

 
Die die must drink this!! It tasted heavenly, with ingredients like winter melon ( obviously), prawn, scallops, vege etc. The soup was superb sweet lor and the melon would just melted in your mouth! The melon was so big that we could each have 3-4 bowls. Yum Yum!! One thing to complement was their service => Thumbs up!! The staff would refill the soup for us almost immediately, and also helped us to scrap the melon. One of them was humorous too. He actually told us dun waste food, kept asking us to refill which was unlike other places, who tried to clear your plates even before you finished your food.

 
Stewed Tian-Jing Cabbage with Mushroom

Guess what? The Chinese name of this vege is called 娃娃菜 ( Doll Doll Vegetable), cute rite? Tasted like white cabbage with golden mushroom and black mushroom. Kinda like 家常便饭, very home-cooked style.

 
Prawn Coated with Salted Egg

 
Well, never eat anything like this before. Cant really say I love it or hate it. Rather it was a confused feeling, "excited" over the exotic way of cooking prawn yet I wanna rekindle the familiar taste of prawn. Keke... dun hit the wall lah.. I'm trying to describe, maybe slightly exaggerating only mah... =p

 
This was normal fish cooked in HK style. Nothing much to flaunt here.So let's move on..

 
Sheng Noodles with Shredded Duck

This must be the "leftover" of our Peking Duck. I was still wondering whether they were trying to cheat us by giving us only the skin!! Hahaha. But I would prefer ee mian rather than the sheng noodles though. Still, they did a good job and we finished the noodles even though we were already 101% full..

Akashi Japanese Resturant Smile Dec 20, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Hotel | Sushi/Sashimi

 
Edamame - $4

This was served to us when we were waiting for our food to be served. Actually I tot it was free, you know, like tibits for you to kill time while waiting for the food. Not too sure whether it was compulsory but if you dont want, perhaps can decline it.

 
Otoro Sushi - $64 ( Price changes according to seasonal rates)

 
Look at that!! Beautiful!!! Do I need to say more??

Please dun insult OTORO by asking me to describle more... How could I describe heaven when I'm never being there before??

To the practical side, the price is approximately $32 for 2 otoro sushi. Why four? Because I was in a group of 4, so ordered 2 portions lah! Alamak!!

Next, my 2nd LOVE... Amaebi!

 
Ama Ebi Sushi - $12

One thing I must really give compliments, the sashimi part was much bigger than the rice portion. From the pictures, you hardly notice that they were actually sushi rather than sashimi. That would justify the higher cost than normal. Not to forget, the seafood was so fresh that you can really taste sweetness in them.

*******

Well enuff of raw food, let's have eye feasting on warm cuisine instead which were as fantastic!

 
Buta Yaki - $15

Buta Yaki is actually grilled pork slices, they were good but there were even better meat like.........

MOOoooOOOOOOOo

BEEF!!

 
Tenderloin Steak (11og) - $22 ( Price changes according to seasonal rates)

I simply love this. The steak was cubed such that there was certain thickness to allow you to enjoy the "chewyness", if you know what I meant. I cant stand thin slices of steaks, it was just wasting food coz most of the time the steaks would end up overcooked!

The beef was cooked to perfection, with the inner core slighly red without being too bloody. Yet, the meat was tender & juicy enough. The cow must have being brought up listening to classical music!! HehePitan Tofu - $4

 
Niniku Yaki Meshi - $5

I fall in love with Japanese garlic rice after trying it at Sakae Teppanyaki at Changi T3. The rice was definitely more fragrant that normal white rice. If you have the stomach & budget to eat after trying all their other nice nice items, yes, please try this also. =)

 
Cha Soba - $8

The "Sunrise"

 
& The " Sunset"

 
Beside the above, we still ordered 2 other set meals which come in soup, side dishes and fruits.

 
Gintara Misozuke Set - $20

 
Tori Katsu Set - $16

********

The total bill came up to S$228 after all taxes. OMG!!!!

That mean we spent $57 per pax for a dinner!!!! OMG AGAIN!!!
