Lai Lai Beef Noodles OK Dec 12, 2013

Herbal Pork Ribs Udon Set ( Plus pepper salf chicken) - $13.90

 
pepper salf chicken

I adore herbal soup and so I kinda liked this set. It was an unique combination of herbal sauce, pork ribs ( which were really tender) and udon. If you wanna try something special, this can be a nice option.

 
Stew Beef Noodle - $7.90

On the contrary, I dun really like the beef noodles. I think besides tender & tasty beef, the soup is another main factor to differentiate between a good and bad beef noodles.

The noodles was okay, the beef was tender alright. In fact, it smell good when it was served. But, it tasted too much like pepper soup. It was so peppery and spicy that I couldnt finish it. Quite disappointed and definitely a far fetch from the one at Taiwan.

Yakiyakibo OK Dec 12, 2013

Teppanyaki Wagyu Beef Set

This was on promotional price of $13.90++ ( usual price: $17.90++), consisting of a salad, egg tofu, beef, miso soup, rice and fruit. I would have picked the sirloin beef cubes teppan if not for the promotion. Well, next time then.. =p

 
Egg Tofu

This was nice and smooth, although a bit blend for some people. For me, I think it was still alright, and I liked the golden brown "skin"...

 
Wagyu Beef Teppanyaki

Finally, the main course! Beside the beef slices, there was also a lot of bean sprouts and bread. I suppose the bread was there to absorb the excessive oil, but again you can eat it lah. Keke

The beef slices was good with the sweet teppanyaki sauce. Bean sprouts was crispy. Both were great to go along with rice.

***

Teppanyaki Chicken/Seafood Set

I have forgotten the price for this, but should be around $20+/-. Again, there was salad, egg tofu, chawanmushi, miso soup, rice and fruit beside seafood & chicken.

 
Salmon

 
Prawn, Scallop and Chicken Teppan

This set was great! There was seafood, meat and vegetable ( bean sprouts mah..).. a "well-balanced meal" indeed! Keke

The salmon was ok. The prawns and scallop was bigggggggggg... I was expecting something smaller. On the other hand, there was only 2 of each, so kind of not enough since we were sharing food. But then, to be fair, the set was meant for 1 pax so the serving was reasonable bah.

The chicken was really tender, and not greasy or tough. Each piece was neatly cubed in a mouth size and you can pop the chicken cube in the mouth easily

 
Chawanmushi

The chawanmushi was quite similiar to those served at Sakae Sushi Teppan. It was nicely grilled in an "onion bowl", so that the egg will have the nice fragrance of onion. It was perfect for me, since I dun eat onion but I like its fragrance.

Overall, it was a satisfying meal with lotza "surprises" ( referring to the portion, quality etc) here and there. Therefore, if you are looking for middle ranged teppanyaki place, this should make a nice choice.

Noble House OK Dec 12, 2013

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood | Kids-Friendly


Oh ya, before I go on, do be prepared for the "weird" spread of orders we had, because we needed to spend at least $100 to use my $50 off voucher. Therefore, we needed to order some "expensive" items on the menu. I wanted to order the "Buddha Jumps Over Wall", but alas, it must be pre-ordered as it requires a long time of preparation. I was abit disappointed but now you know la... if you are keen to try lor..

 
Mango Rolls - $4.50

This was basically prawn and mango wrapped in light batter. Used to be one of my favourite dish last time. Oddly, it seemed to be quite normal when I tried this again after so many years.. *Shrugged*

 
Pork Dumplings - $4.50

I tot the pork dumplings were a bit disappointing. Those at Ding Tai Feng are definitely way better. The skin was kinda thick, and the xiao long baos were not juicy enough.

 
Beef Steak - $24

This was not too bad, although a bit fatty and a bit plain without sauce and no other side dishes to go along. It looked kinda "lonely", isnt it?

Well, the price in a Western resturant can probably get me a decent steak plus 2 set dishes leh... seemed to be overpriced.

 
Baked Cod Fish - $10

Yeah! Cod fish again! Told ya we love cod fish. =p

This was pretty good although I wont really give credits to the chef since cod fish on its own is already good, even if it is just water steamed. I know.. I'm being critical here.. But hey, I'm a paying customer hor!

 
Cheese Baked Lobster with Wine - $48

We were not being extravagant okie? Told you I needed to order expensive item to choke up the bill.. =p

The cheese baked lobster I imagined, was one that was served in half lobster with lotza cheese on top. This was served totally unexpected...

The lobster was chopped up into so many parts that we hardly recognize it! I enjoy pulling out whole chunk of lobster meat from its shell so that I can savour the complete sweetness in one mouthful. It was impossible since each part contained only so little meat.. I felt that the dish was quite wasted and the presentation sucks too. The worst? I was a fool, paying $48 for this... ~_~

Overall, I felt that the standard has dropped. Most of the dishes were just normal, " can eat but not must try" items. On the other hand, Humble House has given me deep impression and there was expectation for the next dish and the next dish, in terms of presentation and taste wise. Here, it is just normal food, no wow effect.... *Yawn* and we spent $90+ after the $50 discount.. =_=

A brekkie place OK Dec 12, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Café | Brunch

The place is not big, but very home style and cozy with its decoration and furniture arrangements. There is NO menu, everything is on the chalkboard behind the counter. If you are someone who is more visual, they have stored all the pictures of their breakfasts in the ipods, which can be found at the counter.

The time I went was quite crowded. Mind you, I went at around 1plus, which was wayyyyyyy beyond breakfast timing lor. No choice, we left our contact with the ang mo boss, and waited for approximately 30mins before we had our seats. Once we were seated, we then proceed to the counter to make our order and payment. After which, the food and drinks were served to our table.

 
Field Mushrooms - $3

We are mushroom lovers, so this was a must-to-order even though it was pretty expensive. The portobello mushrooms were juicy & springy.. a great side dish to start off our mains..

 
Tunisian - $18

My bf ordered the Tunisian breakfast. As proven again and again, he does made a better choices than me. Well, I guess that's why he has chosen me! Wahahahahahhahaha =p

I think the Tunisian breakfast was more worthwhile compared to my choice. At least, it came with thick toast and "impressive" presentation of serving the eggs & dunno what sauce ( looked like tomato hor) in a hot pan. Furthermore, it was more unique, unlike the common American breakfast that is found everywhere.

I also noticed that many customers ordered the Tunisian breakfast. Not that I was KPO, but the hot pan serving was really very obvious mah... Popularity means that it cant be too bad!

 
Canada - $18

I had chosen this Canada breakfast because of the word "Waffle". =_=

Dun get me wrong. It was okay, but to pay $18 for 2 waffles and 1 bacon, plus blueberry sauce which obviously I was not gonna drink it up, was a bit overpriced. I admitted that the waffles were pretty good, soft and fluffy.. but.. I still think, it was not worthwhile lah..

Corn & Crab Meat Soup - $7

 
Scallop & Crab Meat Soup - $8

I wanted to order this melon soup in the menu, but it was only available for pre-orders =_=

Well, that was NOT gonna deprived me of having soups! So we ended up ordering individual soups... ya lah, the price is meant for 1 bowl of soup for 1 pax. Kinda expensive since the bowl was not really big for sharing. The corn soup was much sweeter, while the latter was simple & light. Both were okay, and came with chunks of crab meats. But I guess, you may want to give the soups a pass, as they were just okay and the price seemed to be over-rated.

 
Vegetable - $22

I forgot to take the name of the dishes in the menu. But dun worry! You can find this picture in the menu if you are keen to try.

It was a simple dish made up of simple ingredients such as xiao bai cai, fish maw & wolfberry. The sauce was in a weird yellowish orange colour, because it was carrot sauce, as told by the waiter. Very interesting indeed, and definitely a healtier choice!

 
Fish Fillet - $28

OooooO...This was my favourite dish in this meal! The fish was sweetened with red dates, which was indeed delightful. Same with the "hidden" mushrooms beneath the fish fillets. Not to forget, the fish fillets was very soft and melted easily in the mouth.

 
Peking Duck (1/2) - $32

My bf's favourite dish.. ya, we love to order peking duck - A must-order dish when we go to any chinese resturant. Keke

It was not too bad, at least it came with egg crepe skin. Then again, what you see in the picture was what we got for $32. Probably only 10 miserable slices...
