Best Croissants.. Period Smile Nov 27, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fusion | Bakery

There is no better place to get my croissants than in Tiong Bahru Bakery (TBB) indeed. The second outlet in Raffles city is very much inconvenient and reasonably-priced. TBB is much raved about for its croissants plus other pastries such as the Kouign Amann. I personally find Kouign Amann plain and sweet, not too much for my liking. But it is popular justifiably as the dough is crispy and sinfully sweet with lots of sugar and caramel on top of it.

TBB has much more to offer. Having tried all its different types of croissants, the scones, tarts and quiche, I have decided on my top two favorites which I would stick to for ordering whenever I visit the place tongue Haha there are none other than the Chocolate croissant and Almond croissant ^^ The Chocolate one is super flaky and crispy with the just-right amount of chocolate sweetness while the Almond one is moist and with its Almond filling in it. I am always on the lookout for good Almond croissants and so far I would think this is the best I have tried so far. Tried the one from Monsieur Kaysier once but it was a let-down and the whole croissant was very oily to my dismay sadshocked

Coffee here is good. Yeah good I say and period haha.. I personally like the Iced Mocha very much lol.. The chocolate added in is not the chocolate powder you get from places like CoffeeBean or Starbucks; TBB uses liquid chocolate which I think makes the drink pleasantly chocolaty

Hearty bowl of Ramen Smile Nov 14, 2013

Categories : Japanese | Ramen

 
This Ramen place has been much raved about and yeah it surely lives up to one's expectations.

Firstly, the chicken-based broth appealed to me as I do think it is a healthier choice than the usual pork broth (which tends to be saltier). And awww the chicken drumstick! I dislike pork as it usually comes with bits and pieces of fats around the meat but yeah I enjoyed my tender chicken drumstick with no hidden fats (well yeah unless you eat the skin as well) lol

 
The tamago was nicely done, noodles texture was just right but actually one can choose the noodle texture when ordering, either being hard, normal or soft. Besides that, one can also select the amount of chicken oil preferred, so another thumbs up from a health-conscious person like me hehe smile

One can enjoy free flow hard-boiled eggs as well as cold marinated bean-sprouts. I love vegetables generally so it again appealed to me much that I can eat as much bean sprouts as I like haha. Furthermore, each table would have individual jar of bean sprouts so no need feel paiseh haha (unlike in Korean restaurants where one gotta ask for refill)

This is definitely a place I would return to for my Ramen fix (and bean-sprouts too haha)!! ^^ There are only three flavours available, original, green spicy or black spicy. So minus the headache of deciding from a long list of choices haha. I think original is the best but green spicy with a additional tad of wasabi taste is not bad too. mad

Head down and get ready chopstick and slurp slurp ^^

The place is just perfect for brunch, gives you a feeling of a lazy Sunday morning seeing horses sauntering nearby all the surrounding lush greenery. Food quality is good, I love the Eggs Benedict here, the right amount of Hollandaise sauce with eggs done not under- nor over-cooked. Yeah to runny eggyolks!1 ^^ It would have been lovely if were to be accompanied with tomatoes and the bread crusty.

 
Coffee is good, though not the best. Ahh really I just feel like sitting down there facing the field, sipping my coffee and chatting away my morning away. Every now and then the sight of horses would draw my attention away, though it is not like my first time seeing horses haha.. Just how graceful they sauntered along

 
I would definitely love to spend my mornings here again. The only flip side is that the place is not easily accessible.

As the restaurant name suggests, this place specializes in yakitori, the Japanese version of Satays. However, after trying a few of their Yakitori, I find them no different with my usual Tori-Q except that there are more varieties here. I didn't try all of them I suppose there should be some nice ones but it is double the price from what I get outside.
In fact, if you were to try this place, I would recommend their Udon. The Mentai Cream Udon ($8.90) was really rich in flavour with chunky Udon but it felt a bit too creamy if you were to take up the whole portion all alone mad

The fluffy Udon, as I name it, was full of froth with udon served in a mild sweet soup. It was worth the try, would prefer if there would be more toppings accompanying it. Wanted to try the Tamago Mentai Cheese which is one of the recommended dish but was disappointed to know that the kitchen ran out of the ingredients for it for the day.

 
Ordered a Potato Salad ($3.90) and a Chicken Salad for appetizers. The potato salad was good, no creamy mayo which would be too sinful but rather it was combination of vegetables, mashed potato as well as some shredded toppings around the salad. Apparently, the shreddings were fried wanton skin, thus adding a tad of crunchiness.

Went there on a Saturday afternoon and the place was quite quiet without much crowd. Perhaps it was due to the fact that this restaurant was newly opened in Bugis Junction. Overall, I would return for other food items except their yakitori. In addition, if you were to be there on weekdays lunch hours, they serve affordable lunch sets in fact.

Satisfied! Good and Reasonable Smile Feb 28, 2014

Went to this place for a quick bite before a movie and it was relatively quick. As there wasn't much dining crowd, I didn't have to wait too long before the food was served.

Located at the floor of Shaw Theatre, one would be able to watch all the trailers on the big projector screen.

Ordered a Carbonara pasta and a Apple Chicken Walnut salad. I like the refreshing mix of apples and walnut together with some sautéed chicken slices. The pasta, on the other hand, was actually quite creamy so it felt kinda gelat halfway through. But there was a generous serving of crispy bacon along with the pasta, adding on an addictive crunch to it.

Overall, I find the food quality here pretty much satisfying yet being reasonably-priced. But surprisingly it was relatively deserted on a Sunday evening shocked
