As our taste buds are most probably accustomed to the common version of peppery Bak Kut Teh, some might not welcome the change of the taste of the soup this stall offers.

The soup has an aromatic pleasing herbal taste which appeals very much to me. Sadly, you can't ask for free refill like other usual Bak Kut Teh place.

A Claypot of Pork Rib soup for one person costs $4. The soup was full of flavour while the pork ribs meat was tender to chew. Ordered a side dish of Mushroom Kailan ($3) which complemented the meal nicely lol

If you don't mind trying the herbal soup taste, this is a change from the usual Bak Kut Teh. Food quality is good and fresh and reasonably-priced.

The best Chai Tea Latte Smile Feb 26, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American


Talking about Tea Latte, I am always on the look out for good Chai Tea Latte. I have tried the Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks, Tea Dot, Chaiholics, Coffee Bean and Spinelli.

My verdict is Coffee Bean has so far the best Chai Tea Latte so far!lol

The Chai taste is strong yet of course not overpowering. I am most disappointed with the Starbucks rendition as the Chai taste was too mild and if one were to ask for richer taste it would be then too sweet as its Chai powder is already pre-mixed with sugar.

Have a cuppa of Chai, aromatic and flavourful, best taken when it is piping hot. Its flavorful spice coupled with warm skimmed milk leaves a nice warm aftertaste. Enjoy a wonderful Chai-time with a slice of cake, biscotti or cookies to go along!! ^^ (on a side note, the Matcha Tea Latte is another good option for a mildly sweet soothing hot drink smile)

Full-Bodied Japanese Ramen ^^ Smile Feb 10, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Ramen

Another new Ramen joint, operating nearby a few other competitive Ramen restaurants just within a stone's throw away like the Keisuke Tori King. Therefore, as a marketing strategy of this new restaurant, there was an offer spanned for the past three days whereby the place gave out its first 100 bowls of ramen FOC!!

 
Well I didn't miss the opportunity since I was just nearby the area and there wasn't any long snaky queue at all when I arrived. The place was easily located just opposite Orchid Hotel.

Had the Tonkotsu Ramen with additional topping of Tamago. And it was simply good especially the broth which tasted not overly rich but flavorful enough! I am quite sick of ramen broth which is salty and rich. As for the noodles, one can opt for the texture to be hard, normal or soft. The meat slices was tender.

This would be another good place for a piping flavorful Ramen lol The restaurant claims to be the 2 years No. 1 ramen in Ramen Champion and is best known for Tonkotsu-based ramen, made from pork bones and simmered for many hours.

I would definitely head back to try their spicy rendition hehe, known as God's Fire LOL. The place has quite a variety, including rice. And there is also free-flow hard-boiled eggs lol

Vegetarian food has never been appealing for me though I love vegetables and salad. But the idea of mock meat is kinda artificial

However, after much convincing persuasion from my friend whose favourite burger place is none other than VeganBurg, I relented. Headed there on a Saturday morning, filled with doubts, especially when the place is situated relatively remotely at Eunos, I left the place brimming with satisfaction hehe ^^

And so why would I say so? Firstly, it is a healthier version of fast food, but yet food is only prepared upon order. And this is the first vegan fast food chain, so everything is plant-based only.

 
Had the set meal of Creamy Shrooms Burger with Broccoli as side dish and the Citron Cooler as drinks ($ 11.80). The drink was very refreshing. I like that the burger bun has a toothsome texture rather than the usual soft white bread. The patty with the mushrooms topping tasted altogether simply wholesome though I could not really tell what was used to make the patty. Probably some beancurd skin thingy

On the other hand, my friend had the Hawaiian Burger set. The pineapple slice was juicy but the patty had a strong mock meat taste. I prefer the Creamy Shrooms better lol

Overall, food is good and fresh while it is also a fresh idea to eat plant-based fast food. Even the seats are covered with fake grass LOL but it can get a bit prickly if you aren't wearing long pants. Bright fresh atmosphere complements perfectly with healthy wholesome 'fast food'. But food wasn't that fast either, was in fact only prepared upon ordering.

Simple and Awesome ^^ Smile Feb 06, 2014

Categories : Café | Brunch

Another comparable competitor of good cafes around the area lol The place, being relatively new, has gathered steadily crowds flocking to the cafe especially during the peak hours.

Decorations are pretty simple with three loud peculiar portraits hung on the wall. The place is fairly constricted so seatings are limited. Reservations can be done via the DOC website. So it is advisable to reserve beforehand to avoid frustrating long wait.

To satisfy my sweet tooth, I ordered the Banana Rum Buttermilk Waffle with Vanilla ice-cream ($13). It was served with Maple Syrup but I didn't add any on my waffle as there was already powdered sugar on top. The waffle had a tinge of fragrance and it definitely looked appealing with the scoop of ice-cream enthroned on top. It was vanilla flavour and tasted quite authentic with small specks of vanilla seeds visible. Waffle was fluffy but not as crispy as I would have preferred. Overall, the waffle was not awesome but good comfort food.

My friend had the Smoked Salmon Scramble ($15.50). For this, I would think it was pretty awesome!lol
Salmon portion was generous and tasted very fresh. The accompanied scrambled egg with the pancake base complemented perfectly.

For coffee, we had Cappuccino ($5) and Iced Latte. Coffee here was strong and flavourful. Many suggest the premium hot chocolate milk, even a rendition of drip coffee liquer is available.

More than average quality food while price is reasonable. But space is limited so one would feel quite constrained and uncomfortable, especially when the cafe is jam-packed mad
