Late night energy boost! OK Jan 20, 2014

Truly a restaurant for drinkers and pub goers around Chinatown. As this place closes at 7 am and they even do delivery to nearby pubs! All you have to do is just call them and you will get you food delivered to you. 
And my fav food has really got to be fried hokkien prawn noodles,so  I went ahead to order the hokkien noodles from this restaurant. And it's awesome! Might not be as good as those famous one, but it's really considered good for late night supper/ energy boost!

Five!  OK Dec 16, 2013

Categories : Japanese | Bars/Lounges

Have always been a fan of this joint, and my usual hangout place would be at the cuppage outlet but it just so happen that i was around changi area so my friend suggested that we try the changi branch one instead of travelling all the way down town!

So I realised that this outlet is kinda different from the cuppage outlet and even the food serve is different! Which made me disappointed as i expected the tortilla chips to be on the menu. But anyway this is what we had that day!
Nachos with Salsa and Cheese Dip

Nachos with Salsa and Cheese Dip

 

Instead of the tortilla chips, we order the nachos with salsa and cheese dip. I would say i still prefer the tortilla chips! The nachos tasted like any regular ones that we can buy off shelve, not only that, the salsa dip tasted like just tomatoes in tomato sauce! Something i would never order again!
Garlic Fried Rice

Next was the japanese garlic fried rice which taste very much like glutinous rice! I always like my rice to have more garlic, i think they could use more garlic the next time round.
Deep Fried Oyster

So we ordered sides to go along with the rice, first up was the deep fried oyster and then the yakitori platter came. The oysters tasted okay but i presume they had used frozen ones instead of fresh ones. Like common sense who would use fresh oyster for deep frying, too much work and too costly.
Yakitori Platter

YAKITORI PLATTER was delicious! the sauce is soooo good. As i always like to go for the chicken balls first, and from there i would judge whether is it good or not. And this platter really left me speechless. BEST FOR THE NIGHT. Needless to say much, you just have to go down and try it for yourself!

 
Lastly, is the pizza which i didnt eat! But anyways this is the picture of it!

worth the calories! Smile Mar 20, 2014

Categories : Chinese | Porridge/Congee

Was walking along liang seah street when we decided to make a turn to Tan Quee Lan Street and found Porridge Paradise. So i suggested to my colleagues that we can dine there as its a new eatery.
Was able to get a table in 5 mins as we went after lunch time to avoid the crowd.

We asked the waitress whats good and she suggested the curry chicken, assam fish, prawn paste chicken and the porridge. So we went along with her as its our first time there!

And for the verdict:

Curry Chicken:
Its so good and i find it better than Toast Box's. Less i expected it to be so tasty! Its spicy and creamy! And its very good to go along with rice and bread(they are bringing in bread soon).

 

 
Assam Fish:
Taste can be comparable to those that is sold at Zi Char!

 
Prawn Paste Chicken:
ITS SO GOOOOOOOD! The chicken wings actually 'burst' in my mouth, thou its deep fried but you can taste that the oil they use is fresh oil and its not too oily. Just the right amount of oil!

 
Last but not least, 3C Porridge:
3C porridge consists of:
Green Porridge(Minced Pork Porridge): Pandan Leaf and Basil - Boost Immune
Yellow Porridge(Prawn Porridge): Pumpkin and Sweetcorn - Acts as an Antioxidant
Red Porridge(Shredded Chicken Porridge): Red Yeast Rice and Ginger - Lower Cholesterol

 
My colleague and i both agreed that the red one is the best! Tasted bitter at first but when we took our second mouth, it actually became sweet!
And my boss prefer the green one and the yellow one. But something i must agree with him is that the prawns in the porridge is really fresh!

Conclusion:
I would probably try out their noodles as i saw alot of other customers ordering! Worth the trip and the calories!
 
Recommended Dish(es):  3C Porridge,Curry Chicken
 
Spending per head: Approximately $10(Lunch)

Gathering Smile Jan 15, 2014

Categories : Steamboat/Hot Pot | Noodles

 
With great variety of food choices, My girlfriends and i always hold our steamboat gathering here at honghu! And its always the laksa soup base and chicken soup base a must for us to order.

Laksa Soup:
You can taste that the Coconut flavour isnt from those powder kind but its really coconut milk, and the spiciness can be made according to your liking. Of my gf and i always go for the spiciest!

Chicken soup:
Normal nothing just about it, but its just there for us to wash off the spicy feeling from the laksa!

And another thing is, honghu always offer sambal chilli prawn for us, the consumer to eat! And its not those watery ones, but those chilli crab kind. There even mantou for you to dip into!

Drinks are free flow and price are reasonable too.

Amy Yip Smile Jan 15, 2014

Before tang's market has an stall that sells Amy Yip's Pau, the only place i know that sells authentic Amy Yip's pau is Jalan besar( its just for me, doesnt mean or imply anything or that other stall do not sell authentic ones)

The reason why i like this outlet Pau is basically because the pau doesnt 'dry up' even i leave it on the table for the next day consumption. As I've bought it to share with my colleague the next day. The pau still remain juicy and tender, even the outer skin doesnt need much heating up. Thou we heated the pau because the filling is cold already, but is you are ok with eating it with the cool filling, then i think it means NO RE-HEATING REQUIRED!

The filling consists of pork, chicken, egg and some ham bits? i dont know if its luncheon meat, spam or just some bacon cubes but its just so good!

would re-visit the outlet again.
