Must try dishes are beef rendang, bakwan kepeting (noodle) soup, chap chye, assam seafood/fish and chendol ice cream. Sago gula melaka ice cream is also good!

The Best of O'nya set is good for two pax and great for tasting 6 different signature dishes.

Nice Japanese restaurant Smile Oct 02, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen | Sushi/Sashimi

A simple restaurant in Jurong Country Club that serves nice Japanese cuisine. Was told the restaurant is known too for their bento but tonight's dinner was a full spread.

We started with the zensai Kaisen Kongo ($10.80) for appetizer which had about 8 ingredients like scallop, salmon, fish roe which was salty but when eaten with the lettuce garnish, it was better.

Next we had the teapot soup ($10.80) made from Oyster, not the tiny one but a big plumb juicy one.

The Sashimi Ume ($68.80) was good too. Halibut's fin sashimi was very good. Never tried it before but is very light and tasty. The fatty feel of the fish in the mouth was also fantastic. The Gindara Mentaiyaki was good too. It used pollack roe and cheese.

The teapot soup was made from oyster broth which was a pretty big sized one.

The Mentaiyaki was made from pollack roe and some cheese. 

The sushi selection was also good with a mix of seared and raw items. The uni was fresh and I enjoyed it.

Most interestingly, the ramen broth was made from vegetable and cooked with seafood which is different from other pork or chicken base ramen broth. It was tastier than expected but I found the ramen noodle bland. Maybe because I'm more used to the oilier pork broth ones. 

We ended the dinner with grape ice cream. It was yummy and the citrus taste is a great end to a lovely dinner.

Do check this place out. Definitely worth a repeat visit. There's visitor parking lot in the club so shouldn't be too difficult to get here by car or public transport. The restaurant setting is simple but the freshness and quality of the food is worth a trip to the Jurong country club for a good meal. Plus Chef Ming is such a lovely and personal host and that makes the whole experience very special.

Best dim sum in Singapore for me for now so far and I have tried many. Love the XO carrot cake, liu sha bao, and all the other dim sum are so delicate and tasty. And although it is in ION, the price is reasonable (so long as you stick to ordering only the dim sum and not the other main dishes). Call to book a table. Food is good but service is quite bad - very hard to get their attention to place order or even get the bill.

Yummy thai and western food Smile Oct 01, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Bars/Lounges

I've only tried the Thai menu but heard the western selections are good too. Must order the grilled pork neck and basil chicken fried rice. The tang hoon seafood salad is good and so is the Thai fish cake. The tang hoon prawn is also good too! Serves beer as well and has my favourite Kronenbourg Blanc.

Best beef noodle Smile Oct 01, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hainanese | Hawker Centre | Chinese Noodles

This has got to be one of the best beef noodle I've ever had! Go for the dry version and love the soup which was thick like stew. Yes, it was very salty but it was so tasty, flavourful and thick. Plus it was served piping hot. Go early as the stall is popular and the long queuing time is worth it.

They have just the soup with rice too.
