Located in the heart Orchard at 313 Somerset, ramen lovers may now enjoy high quality ramen using the same recipes created by first Michelin starred ramen chef. The Chabuton chain is extremely popular in both Japan and Thailand, with 9 and 14 outlets in respective countries. If you've been to Japan or Bangkok, you would have probably heard or had Chabuton before.

FULL REVIEW: http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/07/chabuton-ramen-open-its-first-outlet-in.html

The menu is pretty extensive with a selections of different broth - Tonkotsu, Shio, Miso, as well as Shoyu (dipping ramen). Note that you can add-on a Soft Boiled Egg and Buta Kakuni for $3. Patrons can choose how they want their ramen and broth to be prepared. Depending on personal preference, you can choose the texture of the noodles, from soft to hard. And how unctuous and salty you want it to be.

This is Chabuton's signature dish - Chabuton Tonkotsu Ramen (S: $8.30 / L: $11.90) The rich and creamy broth is the culmination of many hours of simmering pork bones. And a big slice of char siew sits atop of the ramen. If you're looking for a spicy kick, add a dollar and go for Chabuton Kara Kara Ramen ($12.90). Chabuton Shoyu Zaru Ramen ($11.90) was my favorite among the rest during the food tasting session.

Recommended side dishes are the Gyoza, Ika Karaage and Char Siew Don ($4). Now with the first flag store in Singapore, ramen lovers may now savour bowls of gratifying ramen. Reasonably priced and generous portion, who says you can't eat affordable & filling meals in Orchard? smile

The restaurant was previously located at Jalan Riang but now relocated in the heart of Holland Village, you'll find casual bistro - The Fat Cat. A perfect place to chill with your friends over dinner and drinks. What's unique is, they serve a wide array of dishes from 3 types of cuisine, Thai, North Indian and Western.

I'm glad to be invited for a food tasting session w them, to savor some of their best dishes from the 3 different kitchens. A starter & a main to start off for each cuisine - of course ending on a sweet note w desserts. Thai Menu - We sampled the pomelo salad, something unique - sweet & sour, definitely kick start our tastebuds. Green curry was decent though.

North Indian Menu - If you're a fan of naan and chicken masala, you'll definitely love this set of menu. We tried the garlic naan, it was super good.

Western Menu - Be sure to savour their signature items like Lamb Shank, Duck Confit or Crab Meat Pasta. I personally love the Duck Confit, very tender and soft. Desserts was average overall. With a spread of mouth-watering dishes from 3 different cuisine, I'm pretty sure they can satisfy your craving. The Fat Cat also serves a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, beers, wines, cocktails, coffee, juices - you will be spoilt for choices!

Matcha Fondueee Smile Jun 09, 2014

Categories : Multi-Cuisine | Hotel | High Tea | Desserts and Cakes | Buffet

Thanks to 'The Entertainer' app, we are entitled to a 1-for-1 dinner buffet at Lime Restaurant in PARKROYAL Hotel on Pickering. It is serving peranakan cuisine cooked by chef Nancy Teo who has many years of experience. The matcha fondue was the main highlight in the desserts segment, everyone just whoah at the sight of it. worthy bites are the crème brulee and freshly baked tarts in different flavours especially the key lime pie.
The peranakan corner serving authentic peranakan classic dishes such as Kueh Pie Tti, Ayam Bbuah Keluak (spicy chicken cooked with black nuts), Babi Pongteh and many more. The best one I had was 'Udang Assam', very flavourful Tamarind prawns - must try.
Seafood and salmon sashimi corner - serving fresh prawns, mussels, oysters and clams! Limited assorted sushi and they were all raw seafood on it. Thankfully, all of them tasted fresh & not fishy. Their savoury food tasted good overall. Some were slightly above average, while others fell short of it. While I feel the desserts were something to raved about with the excellent quality of it.

Nicely done scramble eggs! Smile May 28, 2014

For full review, photos: http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/05/november-8-coffee-company-upper-thomson.html
Located in the vicinity of Upper Thomson where lots of eateries and cafes are, you'll find recently opened November 8 Cafe in the same building as OZ Specialty Coffee as well. An ideal place for your all day breakfast and caffeine fix. November 8 is probably known for their highly raved Potato Rosti. We ordered this as well as their Big Breakfast and Baked Portobello Mushroom as a side.

 
Potato Rosti ($16) - Rosti served with generous serving of scrambled eggs, bacon and gourmet pork sausage. November 8 is known for their highly raved rosti and no doubt it tasted heavenly!
Baked Portobello Mushroom ($10) - 2 huge mushrooms baked with bacon and mozzarella cheese. It tasted ordinary but for that price, I probably won't order it again.
Big Breakfast ($20) - I feel it was kinda overpriced for these but no doubt the toast and scrambled eggs were delish.
After trying out several breakfast set, this is one of the place I would go back for a good scramble egg fix.

Gyoza-Ya is a new 50-seat Japanese restaurant that specializes gyoza or Japanese style dumplings under Japanese restaurant chain Akashi. You can choose either pan-fried or boiled gyoza served with a special sauce, each serving at $4.80 for five pcs. Previously was 6 pcs. There are 2 kinds of filling, pork and vegetable. The other highlight beside gyozas include Jyajya Men ($6.50) which is served with minced pork in miso based. Quite similar to Chinese dish, zhajiang mian. There are steps to follow to enjoy the best taste of Japanese's style Jyajya men. Personally, it was nothing fantastic. It wasn't flavorful enough for my liking.

The price at Gyoza-Ya are pretty much affordable. We decided to try the pan-fried dumplings for both filling as we wanted to compare it to Keisuke Gyoza King & Osaka Ohsho. Though the gyozas here were the best among the rest whereas I like the side dishes offered at Keisuke Gyoza King. Anyway, all the gyoza are undoubtedly delicious. On a gyoza hunt!
