Delightful Meal Smile Nov 28, 2013

The last time I had the Black Sheep Cafe was in their older establishment in Bugis, though it's situated in a corner of the basement of a condo, I was surprised to find that lighting was still ample and there were window seats so it didn't feel claustrophobic at all.

I was also surprised to see that they had more staff so it isn't as cozy as it used to be, but they now have a prominent bar area.
I came on a weekend so there was no lunch set menu, but I believe it's a good deal to go there for lunch then sit there and have tea to either chill or to study. I miss their dinner set menus that they used to have though.

The total meal cost about $150 which included escargot, 4 main courses, and 2 desserts. Black Sheep Cafe does not include GST and Service Charge smile That's really worth it considering the cuisine, environment, and quality of the food!
Escargot

Escargot

 
Escargot was very huge, however the garlic and butter did not get infused in the meat, so it wasn't particularly tasty.
Duck Confit

Duck Confit

 
We ordered two portions of the duck confit ($26.50 each). The mashed potatos were done very nicely as my sister kept on trying to take them from me (none of that instant stuff). What's in the spoon is sort of like a mango salsa which had an indian flavor to it.

 
My dad ordered the Pork Cheek at $28.50 and said that the pork tasted like ham since it was rather salty shocked I'm not too sure because I didn't want to waste my stomach space and savor every bite of what I had ordered with space for dessert. tongue

 
Lamb ranks at $38.60 were done very well. I think the picture captures it well cause I'm salivating just looking at it and thinking back

 
Lemon Cheesecake was just the right thickness that leaned towards an American Cheesecake without being overbearing as the lemon and citrus helped each bite be really refreshing

 
Tiramisu came with fruits on top and was very generous with the rum (not for the faint hearted alcoholic), but each bite was so good that it was finished up before we had barely begun. The balance of the ingredients inside were just right.

Food that wasn't served hot Cry Nov 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

For fast food, $10 a head is quite expensive. It was a huge disappointment after the long wait and all those 'warnings' that the food would be served hot, that our food was cold.
We had gone to the food pick up station as soon as our # was called but it seems like they make the food by the batches or it could have been food that was returned to the kitchen due to the wrong order.
For the price, I really thought the food would arrive hot. The meat on the wings was a disappointing because there was barely any. Also, regardless of whether the fries were kimchi or seaweed, you could barely taste the difference or what kimchi or seaweed should really taste like. French fries felt sort of empty without much potato and substance inside.

The only redeeming factor was the salad was actually quite good and refreshing. The fried shrimp inside were cold and got soggy quickly though.

With this kind of food quality, I don't understand the unending queue at ION.

 

 
 
Spending per head: Approximately $10

Frog Porridge Smile Nov 28, 2013

Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Coffeeshop | Porridge/Congee | Seafood | Zi Char

With 5 or 6 different flavors to choose from, it's hard to decide which claypot you want to order. Apparently, their house specialty is their white pepper frog leg, but they do have the classic garlic, spring onion, to frog legs with chicken essence.

Seating was quite easy to find, and we ordered the white pepper frog claypot and the sauce goes really well with the porridge and warms you right up. Perfect for a rainy or cold day.

Decided to try their fried frog legs, but they don't seem to be able to do an awesome a job as the claypot. There was too much flour and the portion was just too much to handle after a while.

Their vegetables were served hot, but don't bother ordering their egg omelet as the oysters in there weren't very fresh and still had sand in them (come on, it's a place that specializes in frog porridge). Order the frog porridge and try not to experiment too much with their seafood.

They really are good in marketing though cause ordering 2 frogs means they will give you 1 additional frog free..etc.

Taiwan Porridge OK Nov 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Taiwanese | Hawker Centre | Porridge/Congee

I wouldn't say that the small dishes are necessarily Taiwanese-style, but they are cooked on the spot. Hence, served hot.

All their dishes are quite small, hence it's easy to accidentally over-order, however, they are all quite salty and tasty so there is no need to order too much. For a family of 4, we ordered 6 dishes and a soup, and that was overkill. Their chai po omelet is not bad and pairs with the porridge really well. Another dish that is decent is their salted egg and bitter-gourd as it's not overly salty, but still tasty.

Salted fish and beansprouts
The dish is salty but the beansprouts are fresh and cooked just right

Be prepared to wait for your food though as this stall is really popular.
As you can see from the picture below, I had trouble even taking pictures before the food was touched because we were all so hungry.

Ramen Smile Nov 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Ramen

My friend was craving ramen so we decided to try this small establishment amongst the japanese section at Jurong Point.

The bowl had plenty of ramen noodles and not enough broth--one of their promotional seasonal items. I'm always tempted to ask if the broth can be refilled. I felt like there was a lot of care in cooking my ramen and the pieces of charsiu were thick and filling. The bowl looked small at first, but I was full before I was even halfway done.
