The hype for desserts these days surrounds waffles, cakes and tarts in cafes. But has everyone forgotten the traditional taste of Hong Kong desserts? If you're a fan of Hong Kong desserts like myself, you've got to check out Hee Kee - it's first Singapore store located in Jurong Point. I was amazed that they serve a delectable spread of 80 desserts, all hand-made by its in-house chefs. Glad to be invited for a food tasting at Hee Kee to sample some of their best desserts. Some unique and really good desserts like - traditional steamed milk pudding,

Mango Cheong Fun ($3.30 per piece) - Steamed spongy sweet-coconut infused skin filled with mango chunk. Wrapped nicely like a gift, look at how 'shiny' and silky those skins were? It's such a great combination, sweet mangos wrapped with coconut skin. Just thumbs up.

Whole Coconut with Coconut Ice cream & Peanut Crush ($8.80) - It's indeed a refreshing dessert, filled with rich coconut ice cream and coconut flesh, topped off with crushed peanuts. This dish reminds me of the famous coconut ice cream in Bangkok, it tasted almost the same. It comes with a cup of refreshing coconut juice as well.

Durian Pancake (From $3.30) - I'm always a durian pancake fan and this dish satisfied my craving. The durian pancake at Hee Kee is a hearty combination of rich durian puree and whipped cream, wrapped in coconut infused skin. One thing I've to emphasized - the coconut infused skin tasted heavenly! Having it alone was already good enough, adding on the durian puree filling was just pure shiok-ness.

If those dishes I've mentioned above excites you, be sure to visit Hee Kee to get your dessert fix! You can get to enjoy sweet treats in a vintage-inspired 40-seating setting with your loved ones.

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.

Signature Ramen

 
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!

nice place to chill over meat OK Jun 30, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café

The garden slug is highly raved to be a hidden gem in the east by bloggers and online reviews. Out of curiosity, we decided to check them out during the weekend. It may seems inaccessible as it's not walk-able from any MRT, the nearest would probably be Bedok station. The menu is pretty extensive, from pasta, burgers, steaks and even all day breakfast dishes.
We had, Wasuga Chicken Wings which was kinda disappointing. TGS Mixed Grill Platter inclusive of ribeye steak strips, lamb loin chops, bratwurst sausage, mash potato and greens was good! We had a few kinds of pasta as well. Desserts was decent, we had tiramisu - nothing to rave about.

Overall, the quality of the food were average - some were good, some weren't worth the cost. If you're looking for a place to satisfy your steak craving without spending a bomb, this would be an ideal place to chill over meat smile

Big quantity & affordable prices OK Jun 17, 2014

Full review of dishes http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/06/happy-3-bites-cafe-everton-park.html
Being the newest kid on the Everton Park block, you will find NEA-approved pets cafe, Happy 3 Bites. It's cosy and pretty nice ambience to chill, with menu items incorporating a local touch to western cuisine. What's unique about them - being pet-friendly! The menu is pretty extensive considering the shoe box kitchen. Ranging from various mains and desserts to choose from, as well as waffles made with pandan batter.

 
Overall, some were above average while others fell short of our expectations. It was decent but the big breakfast was a big disappointment sad Given the big quantity and affordable prices,this would be an ideal place to chill over dinner without burning a hole in your pockets.
 
Spending per head: Approximately $24(Dinner)
