Boat Cold Platter Smile Dec 01, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Vegetarian | Kids-Friendly

Was there for a Birthday dinner

The place is rather spacious and the table arrangement wise was quite organised. The waiters and waitress are also very courteous and they are also very familiarized with their menu.

We ordered quite a few dishes, including its Vegetarian Fish, Bodhi Satay and also some other vegetarian dishes. As its name suggest, it only serves Vegetarian food. But most of its vegetarian foods are really nice, some doesn't even taste like Vegetarian Food. One of the dishes that we are all very surprised of, is the Boat Cold Platter. Its really very cute and nicely served, with 5 vegetarian appetizers, just like those dishes served during wedding.

Total we spent $289 for 10 person.

Food Tasting @ Charcoal Thai OK Dec 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Restaurant | Buffet | Mookata

Hello folks! Its long since I last wrote a OpenRice Review due to my hectic schedule and fret not! I'm back now!! Am really glad to be invited for the last food tasting of the year at Charcoal Thai, Nex! 

Heard of Charcoal Thai quite a few times from my friends and always wanted to give it a try, but time always doesn't permit. Finally had a chance, and moreover, its FREE! Good things are suppose to wait YEAH? Hehe! 

As I write this review, was thinking of my Christmas Menu for this year's party and before ideas starts to pop up, let me start the review proper! 

In this food tasting, we tasted quite a few different HotPots as well as different type of drinks that Charcoal Thai offers! 

 
This is the Ingredients for Chicken HotPot. Indeed, generous portion of Pork, Chicken as well as vegetables, luncheon meat and crabstick to go with the HotPot! 

 
All's ready! And my verdict : It's pretty NORMAL leh. And my fellow reviewers somehow agreed with me... Well. Anyways, its time to move on to the next dish! 

 
Oh ya. Before I forget, Charcoal Thai offers 3 different types of sauces to go with all sorts of HotPot that they offers. And the 3 sauces are Thai Chilli Sauce, Thai Garlic Chilli Sauce and Thai Tomato Sauce. Amongst them, I would say that the Thai Tomato is the spiciest (YES, you did not read wrongly) and also my favourite. Please don't be trick by the name yeah.. Garlic Chilli would be suitable for those who really loves Sesame Dressing.. As for the Thai Chilli, no comments about it... 

 
Oi guys! What are you all thinking ah? These are COLLAGEN Stocks lah! Probably one of the main contributor to the high cost of the HotPot. Verdict? Ladies would love the nutrients that can be obtained by these collagens. 

 
Along with the Collagen HotPot are vegetables as well as meat. Corns, Fishcake, Cheese Hotdog, as well as Chicken, Beef and Pork Slices. 

 
Not a good picture though. Sorry! But anyways, the food reviewers all agreed that the broth is too thick, and with all the ingredients throwed into the Collagen Hotpot, it doesn't really taste that good. But nevertheless, not forgetting the beauty nutrients behind the collagen! 

 
We also got the chance to try out the Spicy Chicken Hotpot! Which is somehow similar to the Mala Chicken Pot that most hotpot outlet offers, but I got to say that Charcoal Thai is really generous with their portion and indeed, the level of spiciness is just nice for someone who can take spicy but cannot take spicy (Ironic yeah? That's me!) 

Anyways missing out are the drinks. Managed to try their Ice Tea as well as Ice Lemongrass Tea and both are BAGUS!! Definitely worth the price that they are priced at!! Please do try out their drinks whenever you are there, its really really super duper worth the price (Yes, that's how good it is!).. 

Last but not least, I thought it was really great to have their Chef to share with us the "recipe" for the Spicy Chicken Hotpot and I've got to say that the service is pretty good! Not sure if it was a benefit for us only, or for every diner, we were given petite deserts after our meal, which is very sweet of Charcoal Thai!

Blancy Tarts! OK Nov 19, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bakery | Desserts and Cakes

Went to Alive Museum and was looking for a place for a cosy and relaxing afternoon tea break. Found this humble nest for desserts, Tart Blanc! 

 
The friend decided to go for the bread option, its presentation is definitely a plus point! Bread was delicious, and it was served with iceberg lettuce as well as some potato bites! 

 
A rather refreshing way of serving Earl Grey Tea. Find this method of serving very appealing and interesting, it gives their customers a better and more fond impression of the place! 

 
This is the Raspberry Tart, with its crisp base and sweet toppings, it makes a perfect match. Abit too sweet though. 

 
This is the Chocolate Tart, similarly, it has a crispy base, with chocolate filling above it. Am not really a chocolatey person, so don't really like this. While, my friend loved this! 

 
This is a creamier version of cheesecake. With the blueberry and raspberry topping, it makes a wonderful match. This is my favourite of the night! 

 
All in all, spent a total of $41 for 2 drinks, 3 tarts as well as 1 pita bread. For the quality of the product, $41 is definitely worth it. But abit overpriced is you are intending of have afternoon tea here. If you are intending to look for a place that can spend a wonderful afternoon reading a book or serving the net, it will be a great place!

Pancakes? Yes Strictly Pancakes! OK Nov 18, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Brunch

Was looking for a place where we can all enjoy a wonderful yet 'flourish' meal and finally decided that we will settle for Strictly Pancakes! Headed down to its outlet at Siglap Road, which has ample of parking lots, infront of the restaaurant! Which means you don't have to worry of parking warden while eating! 

 
Picture above shows the Menu of Strictly Pancakes! 

 
Bacon with Pancakes ($13). Pancakes were abit too thick, but bacon mixed well with the pancakes. 

 
Red Velvet Pancakes ($13). For those with a sweet tooth should really try this! Creamier version of red velvet pancakes, with a layer of cream. Abit too sweet for me though. 

 
Stack of 3 pancakes ($8), Scrambled Eggs ($2.50), Chicken Sausages ($2.50). For those who wants to have a lighter meal, they do have a stack of 2 pancakes available too! Personally find that the scrambled eggs is rather on the bland side, not much condiments available too. Whereas, the chicken sausages are well prepared, cooked to its best. Pancakes and the syrup on the sweet side, plus the scrambled eggs and sausages on the savoury side, it makes a wonderful combination! 

 
Spam Fries ($8), my favourite of the night. Can't believe that my favourite of the night from a specialized pancakes store is its spam fries! Spam fries is well fried, till crispy. All diners should give it a try! 

 
Exterior of the restaurant. With lots of dining restaurants around the vicinity! 
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Spam Fries

Pies!  OK Dec 17, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes

Not knowing which pie to choose from, we decided to try out all 8 kind of pies served there. ($53).

My favourite amongst all the pie is the chocolate mint pie. There's a hint of mint, with the chocolate which is not too sweet, containing a little bitter taste. Suitable for those chocolate lovers. As for the crust of the pie, its just like biscuit crust, with a hint of fragrant taste.

Other pies are actually quite normal, price is also quite overpriced.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Chocolate Mint Pie
 
Spending per head: Approximately $27(Supper)
