A seafood restaurant serving uniquely Singapore dishes since 1999, Orchid Live Seafood got its name because the first outlet was in Orchid Country Club. Today, they have 2 outlets - one at Sembawang and one at Seleter Hills Estate.  A typical Chinese live seafood restaurant with a casual setting showcasing large tanks of sea creatures swimming around in them, Orchid Live Seafood is well known for their Lobster Porridge and Steven's Chicken Wings.

 
Steven's Chicken Wings (SGD$24.00) aka lollipop chicken wings - crackling on the exterior and tender on the inside- one of their signature dishes.

 
Finally, the star of the night and the main reason we were here - Lobster Porridge (SGD$150.00), made up of a huge pot of grainy rice cooked in rich, nectarous lobster broth. Every spoonful was a delight, bursting with deliciouness in the mouth. The lobsters were fresh and springy in texture, tasting lovely even after shedding their essence in the broth.

Decided to revisit Sushi Kanazawa for those delicious, freshly-prepared sushi by chefs right in front of patrons, and there were a few items that I missed. Yeah, so we sat around the counter watching the chefs hard at work, dishing out plates of delicacies to us all. They have the a la carte menu but we decided to go for the buffet at SGD$48.50 per pax.

We started with the Sashimi Moriawase (assorted raw fish) was served - there was swordfish, tuna, salmon and shrimp. The fish sashimi were thickly sliced and had the essential fresh, bouncy texture to them.

The first item of the day for us was the Amaebi Mentai Aburi (torched sweet prawn with cod roe) - my very favorite since the previous visit. The charred-and-buttery tasting mentaiko melted in the mouth along with the sweetness of the prawn, and it was just so tasty I repeated this order at least thrice.

Salmon Aburi (torched salmon) was up next, another personal favorite that brought the natural flavor of salmon to new heights by the smokey hints that it adopted through the torching process. Needless to say, the salmon nearly dissolved in the mouth upon contact too.

The the Tabiuo (flying fish), with a slightly slimy texture but heavier flavor, garnished deliciously with sauce, spring onion and sesame seeds.

The Kakigai (oyster) was lovely as well, juicy and flavorsome.

Soup Restaurant is Chinese restaurant rich in Oriental decor and served by polite crew, Soup Restaurant offers a variety of Chinese dishes at reasonable prices. Lately, they let patrons have the choice of choosing between the a la carte menu or steamboat buffet (the latter at SGD$26.90++ per pax). We decided to go for a la carte.

 
Dinner began with Samsui Chicken (SGD$17.90 for small), neatly chopped tender, moistened steamed chicken arranged artfully with cucumber sliced around the plate, and served with their special pound ginger dip. Tasty and succulent, I actually liked it a lot better this time round.

 
Then Sweet Sour Pork with Pineapple (SGD$12.90), consisting of small pieces of crispy pork marinated to give it a nice tangy taste.

Beppu Menkan has a rather long-standing history in Singapore. I remember eating here, as well as their now-defunct Tiong Bahru Plaza outlet since around a decade back. Besides the usual rice, seafood and other Japanese dishes, Beppu Menkan is famed for its spicy ramen - where diners could select the various levels of spiciness they preferred. They had this concept since back then, when very little restaurants had this offering.

 
The Assorted Sashimi for 4 pax (SGD$28.80) was very reasonably-priced, made up of salmon sashimi, squid sashimi, swordfish sashimi, octopus sashimi and tuna sashimi with some salmon roe. The composition was rather colorful, and tasty. It was not the freshest or thickest we'd eaten, but enjoyable all the same.

 
The Grilled Mayo Prawn (SGD$7.30) was so good we ordered 2 sets of this in all. The prawn was luscious and firm, topped with creamy mayonnaise sauce and grilled to smoky succulence, scoring full points for texture and taste.

 
Last but not least, Grilled Squid (SGD$11.80) which looked so tantalising on its own. The long sea creature was sliced expertly into even strips, and every strip was succulent and chewy. Natural sweetness of squid was combined with a slightly charred hint as well as the sweet soy sauce doused over it.

After the first visit at The Reading Room, I fell in love with it, so I decided to come back here on this lazy afternoon where I could lose myself in the comfort of fictional novels, coffee and an afternoon snack. Good music and service was all round, and the cafe was crowded this time round, much to my surprise. I am happy though - such a beautiful and bookish cafe, would be a shame if no one appreciates it.

 
For beverage, I had the Himalayan Salt Coffee (SGD$5.00), an exquisite flavour that contains very subtle savoury hints amongst the aroma of this light coffee; pretty smooth with good notes and flavour.

 
The Tiramisu (SGD$7.80) was well-moistened, with intense bursts of liqueur and coffee flavours mingling well like a dream; every mouthful was a light tease upon the palate, allowing the taste to seep deep into the senses easily.
