Be it during lunch or dinner, the long queue outside the store probably says it all. The ramen scene in Singapore is getting explosive these days but personally, this could be one of the best Tonkotsu pork base ramen in Singapore. Just like the eateries in Japan, open kitchen concept in a small shop. It is constantly crowded due to it's small capacity, so be prepared to queue longer especially during peak period. Like your usual ramen dining, you'll be given an order slip to tick your ramen preference.
Tonkotsu Ramen

Tonkotsu Ramen

 
Tonkotsu King has unlimited serving of hard boiled eggs & really awesome bean sprouts. These appetizers add on to satisfy your ramen fix. Tonkotsu King Ramen ($10.80) + All toppings ($4), reasonably priced. Very rich and flavorful pork base soup, 2 big slices of char siew, nicely done runny egg, springy noodles, your best ramen experience.

Though this is not the best ramen I ever had in my life but is probably the closest you can get to an authentic bowl of ramen in Singapore. Highly recommended! Nonetheless, Ichiran will still be the best ramen I've had till date. Full post - http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.com/2014/02/ramen-keisuke-tonkotsu-king-orchid-hotel.html

This is our second time having Marriott Cafe's high tea buffet since 2 years back and I must say, it's more or less the same dishes still as items may vary. Starting off with the seafood section, there were fresh white prawns and mussels together with bentos of sushi/sashimi assortment for the sushi lover.

 
Mariott Cafe offers a bit of everything. From porridge, satays, dimsum to local mains like chicken rice, prawn mee, bak ku teh, yong tau fu, mee siam, curry chicken and more. We start to find it boring but I'm sure it will be a good take for tourists. Though the dessert portion seems limited, I'm still glad that they've a bit of everything. From ice kachang to Asian desserts such as kueh lapis, malay kuehs and lastly to English sweets. Being a high tea buffet, desserts should be the highlight of it but I find it disappointing to have such a small spread of sweets.

The food quality for it's high tea buffet tasted average with plenty of local dish which I find it too 'familiar'. Overall, it's still worth a visit - $39++ per pax for high tea buffet. Read full review at http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.com/2014/02/high-tea-buffet-marriott-cafe-singapore.html

Freshly baked everyday! Smile Jan 19, 2014

Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes | Brunch

Looking for a nice place to chill with freshly baked home-made cakes and pastries? Located in Upper Bukit Timah, along the stretch of eateries at Lorong Kilat, you'll find vintage cafe; Carpenter and Cook.

 
There were a variety of cakes and sweets to pick from. For sweets, we tried Caramel Walnut Cheesecake ($7) and Sticky Toffee Walnut Brownie ($6.50). They tasted really fresh like it's just taken out from the oven. Cheesecake was satisfying while the brownie was a little too sweet and dry for me personally.

 
Worthy bites such as Passion Fruit Meringue Tart, Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake and Banoffee Tart as recommended by the staff.

 
The unique vintage atmosphere, definitely a place to go for with freshly baked pastries and cakes everyday. Perfect setting for a cosy high tea session with your loved ones especially over a cup of freshly brew coffee.

 
With a touch of nostalgic feel to the cafe, be sure to check them out if you're in the vicinity of Bukit Timah. Read full review at http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/01/carpenter-and-cook-artisan-bakery-cafe.html

Huge variety of food to pick from Smile Jan 04, 2014

It has always been one of the buffet restaurants I wanted to check out. Even though the buffet isn't exactly affordable, The Line remains as one of Singapore's favourite destinations for buffet lunch and dinner. Started off w chilled fresh prawns, mussels, clams, crabs & very fresh oysters where they open e shell right in front of you. Besides the seafood spread, the Japanese counter is the next most popular counter in The Line. Fresh! I'm impressed by the spread of selections, Sushi, Maki, cha soba, sashimi, tuna sashimi, tempura - you name it. Overall, all of them tasted really good.

I must say The Line has pretty impressive array of desserts lined up and it definitely satisfy a sweet tooth person like myself - worthy bites such as Lemon Meringue Tart, Creme Brulee & Carrot Cake. I must say this is one of the best desserts lined up I ever had in a buffet.

 
From fruits, warm desserts and a variety of ice creams and toppings to pick from. They've a very wide selection in their buffet lines for an international buffet. There's definitely plenty of choices for everyone to choose from - from your local dishes to fresh seafood, Japanese delight, dim sum, Indian cuisine, western dishes, local kuehs and very delicate desserts. I can't find any reason not to come back to The Line again. Read more on my trip to the line at, http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/01/the-line-buffet-shangri-la-hotel.html

During Christmas this year, Café Swiss @ Swissotel The Stamford is having DBS 1-for-1 for their festive lunch & dinner buffet. We decided to try out cafe swiss as we read reviews about it and since it's 1-for-1 deal.

 
Started off w the greens and the wide selections of salad in big pots - taste decent. Moving on to their savory dishes, a variety of picks for cheese fondue. Pasta & Omelette station - A choice of tomato or mushroom sauce for your pasta. I had numerous servings of it because of their flavorful mushroom sauce w generous servings of mushroom. Delicious! What's Christmas without roasted turkey? Serving alongside were the German sausages as well. Not to miss the Japanese station, assorted sushi and salmon sashimi. Sashimi were average, not too fresh either. Seafood cold section - Chilled clams, mussels and fresh prawns.

 
The dessert section were pleasant and satisfying though the variety were limited, considering it's a lunch buffet. There were the log cakes and festive fruit cakes as well! We end off with some sweets from a spread of cakes to pick from.

 
Café Swiss is a buffet that offers a limited spread yet good quality of food. Some were above our expectations while some fell short. Is it worth it? Read more at http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2013/12/cafe-swiss-festive-lunch-buffet.html
