Khun Thai is a small, self-service eatery located at a far corner of Woodlands MRT and has a range of affordable food such as Mee Siam ($2.00), Mee Rebus ($2.00), Lemon Chicken Cutlet Rice ($2.00), Nasi Lemak ($2.00), Thai Chicken Drumstick Rice ($2.50), Thai Style Hokkien Prawn Noodle ($3.00), and so on. If you need a drink, there are also beverages such as Milo, Bandung and Lemon Tea. The place was full when we were there during dinner time on a weekday but fortunately, we managed to find a seat after a very short wait.

 
Mayonnaise Chicken Cutlet Rice ($2.00)
This looked pretty promising on the menu but was a disappointment when it came. The portion of the chicken cutlet given was meagre and it wasn't evenly battered or very crispy. The serving of the mayonnaise on the chicken cutlet was quite stingy too. The rice was not very fragrant and tasted quite average. For $2 though, I supposed one can't really expect much of this dish.

 
Thai Style Fried Kway Teow ($3.00)
Likewise, we thought that the portion was a little meagre considering this cost more than the chicken cutlet rice at $3.00, but we agreed that this was slightly better in taste than the chicken cutlet rice. It was a tad salty but we liked that it wasn't too watery or too dry.

Overall, the food were average and the service was okay, but we appreciate that there was a staff who took the effort despite the dinner time rush to clear the tables as soon as it was vacated. The pricing of the food can be a draw if you are not too particular about taste and just want something cheap and convenient to fill your stomach along the way.

Local Desserts In A Cup! Smile Jan 16, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Taiwanese | Bubble Tea/ Tea

We have been a little on an Ice Kachang craze lately and upon passing by the Sweet Talk kiosk, we saw a "bubble tea" version of several local desserts. There were the Ice Kachang, Ice Honey Dew Sago, Ice Chendol at $1.80 and even Durian Ice Kachang and Durian Chendol at $2.30. We thought this was quite interesting and decided to get the Ice Kachang to try.

 
Ice Kachang ($1.80)
This came looking rather... pink but it was quite decent with actual ice kachang ingredients such as red bean, sweet corn and jelly in it. It was also quite sweet and tasted a little like a real ice kachang although we agreed that the original version was better. But of course, this was meant to be a "bubble tea" version, so it was still good enough for our purpose. It was actually quite convenient to drink (and munch) on the go!

 
Matcha Ice Blended with Red Beans Toppings ($2.00)
We also got the Matcha Ice Blended which came with a generous amount of red beans although the red beans was at the base instead of the "top". The matcha flavour was kind of weak but the red beans was quite tasty. This was also the right amount of sweetness for us and I personally loved the milky taste of the drink as well. Out of the two, this was my favourite.

They also have quite a variety of other bubble tea and ice blended drinks here such as the Italian Soda ($1.50), Sweet Heart Lychee ($1.80), Milk Tea ($2.00), Iced Mocha Classic ($2.10), and Oreo Choco Delight ($2.50), which I'd love to try in the future. We were also surprised to find hot beverages such as the Chocolate Wonderland ($2.00) and White Coffee ($2.00). The portion of ingredients given was quite decent for the price and we especially found these local desserts in a cup to be worth a try. Now you can enjoy a local dessert on the go!

Saw this cute little kiosk at the "New York" section and they had quite a decent amount of items on their menu. There were drinks such as Iced Milo Snow and Iced Peach Tea, Waffle with Maple/Raspberry/Chocolate or with a scoop of Ice Cream, and Desserts such as Character Cupcakes or Ice Cream. And of course, Cookies! There were Character Cookies, Mini Cookies, Giant Cookie and even a Cookie Ice Cream Burger here!

I was actually keen on the Character Cupcakes ($4.80) but was informed by the friendly but apologetic staff that this was not available so I went with the Character Cookie ($3.80) instead.

 
Cookie Monster Character Cookie ($3.80)
A cookie designed in the shape of Cookie Monster. This was a tad soft when I ate it but that probably got to do with the fact that I ate it a few hours later at home. It was actually kept chilled at the kiosk so it might be better to eat it on the spot while it was still chilled and possibly still firm. Other than it not being as crunchy as I'd like, this was still quite decent in taste. The mouth part was made of chocolate which I thought was a nice touch to what would otherwise taste like a normal biscuit.

 
This was quite a big piece of cookie but I thought the price was a tad pricey for just a cookie. There was actually a cheaper but plain, round cookie selling at $2.80, but you might as well pay a little more to try a specially designed cookie just for the heck and experience of it while you're on Sesame Street at "New York". Do I sense a tourist trap here?

Other than the character cookies, they were also selling the drinks in character cups. Here, you can get Sesame Street Elmo or Oscar cup with the drinks. I initially thought of getting a drink in the Oscar cup but balked at the princely price of $19.90 to get it with the Iced Milo. But then again, the cup alone costs $19.90 in the souvenir stores. Oh, tourist trap all right. I suspect "Me Want Cookie And Your Money" might be a better signboard name instead!

(But really, give the Character Cookies a try. Now, if only I can get my hands on those Character Cupcakes....).

Churros!! Smile Jan 16, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Churros

​First thing I wanted to try at USS: Churros!

 
This "Hollywood Churro Co." at the intersection between Hollywood, New York and Madagascar was the first kiosk I saw selling Churros and I immediately jumped at the chance to buy one to try. There was quite a bit of a queue and the Churros sold out while I was still queuing but fortunately, the kind staff brought in a new batch and I managed to get my hand on one.

 
Fresh-Made Churros ($4.00)
I found the price to be a little pricey at $4.00 for just one small stick but compared to the prices of some other food at the other USS kiosks ​, ​it ​was certainly ​one of the​ more "decent​ly​" ​priced item! I like that the churro was sweet but not cloying, and had a hint of cinnamon. The edges were also quite crispy but soft on the inside.

It would be perfect with chocolate sauce but this was also pretty tasty on its own! There were also other items like the Noodle Hotdog, ice cream and various drinks here at this kiosk but I'd recommend trying the Churro when you are here!

Korean Fare Smile Jan 15, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Food Court | Halal

We were quite thrilled to find that there is a Korean food stall at Bagus, which is a halal food court. The place was quite decently decorated for a food court but since we were here during dinner time, it was very noisy.

Nevertheless, we were keen to try the Korean food here. There was quite a variety of dishes available, such as the Korean Fried Rice ($5.50), Kimchi Ramen ($6.00), Salmon Bowl ($6.50) and Teppan Beef Bulgogi ($7.50).

 
We also noticed that there was a Dua Set promotion of two sets for only $10.00 which was quite value for money considering that the usual price for any of the two sets listed would be $12.00. We got the Set C which came with the Korean Bibimbap and Spicy Seafood Soup. Despite this being a self service stall, the staff was nevertheless still polite and friendly although there was a wait for our food due to the dinner time rush.

 
Korean Bibimbap with Chicken (U.P. $6.00)
The bibimbap that came with the promotion set was served in a normal bowl, instead of a stone bowl which I would have actually preferred for the slightly charred rice and slightly smokey flavour. If you want to get the Dolsot Bibimbap with stone bowl for a slightly more authentic taste, it is priced at $6.50 with a choice of chicken or beef. But since the promotion was only for the normal bowl, we just went with it instead. It came with a decent serving of an egg, chicken bulgogi, carrot slices, mushroom slices, vegetables, beansprouts, and sauce that was spicy, a little sweet, and a tad salty. The set also came with a side of kimchi, which was spicy and sour, and spicy anchovies, which unfortunately felt a tad too mushy. There was also a bowl of seaweed soup which tasted mild but was especially good for "cooling" the tongue after all the spiciness. Overall, we thought this was quite okay, but it'd probably taste better with the stone bowl, at least for my taste.

 
Spicy Seafood Soup (U.P. $6.00)
This set came with a bowl of rice although we also asked for an extra bowl of seaweed soup, while the friendly staff willingly obliged. The seafood soup was very spicy with a slight tinge of sweetness but it was surprisingly not very sour as we had initially expected. There was also quite a generous portion of ingredients in it, like prawns (we counted 3!), pieces of squid, tofu, slices of fish meat, shredded chicken meat, enoki mushroom and vegetables. It tasted pretty decent although we agreed that it was really too spicy for us. Even so, we felt that this was the slightly better dish out of the two.

 
Overall, the pricing at this stall was expected of a Korean stall in a food court and the taste was also quite decent. Portion was quite plentiful and we were pretty full by the end of the meal. If you are eating with a friend or a partner, you can consider the Dua Set promotion which was quite worth it since you'd be getting the dish at $5.00 each instead of the usual price of $6.00. I'd love to come back again to try the Dolsot Bibimbap and Teppan Chicken Bulgogi one day!
