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.

Mookata Smile Nov 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Coffeeshop | Steamboat/Hot Pot

My first time Mookata-ing, and I think it was really worth it. I can't remember the exact price but it was approximately $35 for their set which includes 2 eggs, soup, pork meat, veggies, and seafood (prawns).

Their sauce is quite good which consisted of Thai chili sauce, garlic..and of course since it's their house sauce they have other ingredients inside.

The soup base consists of Tom Yam or Chicken Soup and it comes along with the set.
It took a while for the pot to come but it's probably because they were trying to light up the charcoal. We had to scoop the soup into the bowl and then waited for the soup to boil before we started cooking the veggies.

Mookata is really sinful because you can BBQ and steamboat at the same time. The juices of the meats that you BBQ also flow into the soup so your soup is really tasty.

One mistake that we made was that we left the pork fat/lard to the end, but we should have cooked it in the beginning. (We thought it was sliced fish)

You have to pay your meal at the stall but be patient as the workers seem to not be able to speak English well and are from Thailand smile

Lunch Set is very worth Smile Nov 27, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Halal

Came here on a weekday and was surprised that they had a Set lunch that is available from 11am to 2pm.
It includes access to their Buffet Salad Bar, Soft drinks, and a single scoop of ice cream.
I think it's super worth it, say, if you come at 11am and eat till you're bloated, you'd barely be hungry for dinner!

I ordered their Black Pepper Sirloin Steak which is $19.90 ++, and my friend ordered the Pan Grilled Salmon which is also $19.90++

The service staff was very hasty in trying to get our orders, but I think there seemed to be a lack of communication between the staffs themselves. Better communication between them would allow them to be more efficient.

 
Steak was supposed to come with seasonal veggies which turned out to be the squash and tomatoes pictured. Presentation-wise it was a little below my expectations, but then I reasoned that the vegetables were technically already available via the salad bar. The steak was rather nicely done though and it's really worth it if you consider the price that's on their regular menu.

 
Salad Round 1

 
After many rounds...another salad plate.
There are many salad dishes to choose from and they do switch some of the dishes when they run out

 
Mocha Ice cream was not too sweet nor too bitter. Just right for me to end my meal blissfully smile
 
Recommended Dish(es):  salad bar,lunch set
 
Spending per head: Approximately $25(Lunch)

Beat the queue Smile Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Restaurant | Dim Sum | Noodles | Kids-Friendly

I finally got to understand the craze of Tim Ho Wan one fine Sunday. The trick to having Tim Ho Wan for dinner on a weekend is to be there early. I was there at 5-6pm and there was no queue at all and could waltz right in. I know this would not have been possible at the Plaza Singapura branch.

The menu is the paper placemat that your cultery is placed on and you take your own order before you pass it to the waiter. Take note that hot tea and water is refillable while the Barley water isn't.

Tim Ho Wan is famous for its "4 Heavenly Kings". One of them is the Char Siu Bao and they are pretty much the recommended 'what you should eat' if you visit the place. However, I wasn't a fan of the Ma Lai Gao, and I had other dimsums that I wanted to try, instead of the 4 kings.

Phoenix Claws in Abalone Sauce
One of their speciality dishes that was available on one of those promo slips. The sauce was very prominent and the chicken feet was very chewy. I liked that they removed the claws from the feet as it disturbs me when dimsum restaurants don't do that

Shrimp Dumplings (Ha Gao)
Quite standard fare. The dumplings were served hot and the skin was still intact (not broken). The shrimps were decent and they were quite generous about the amount of shrimp inside.

Cheong Fun (with intestines)
A little disappointed in this because it wasn't what I was looking for. They had the standard orange peel inside which I'm not a fan of.

Highlight: Poh Luo Char Siu Bao
This was really a delightful surprise and I could see why other tables were ordering this dish non-stop and packing it away in their paper boxes, however, I believe everyone should have it when it's fresh out of the kitchen as it was really delicious. The bread was hot and the contents were still steaming though we had left it on the table for a bit as we were finishing up the other dishes. The sauce was just right and the char siu inside had enough fat without being stuck in your teeth and without you wanting to spit it out.

 
The total bill wasn't very cheap, but I think the experience was worth it. If I was to go back, I would definitely order the Char Siu Bao and perhaps try their Luo Mai Gai (Glutinous rce) and the Hong Kong Porridge.

'No see sky' char siu Smile Nov 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Hawker Centre

You can identify this stall with the long queue...for wanton noodles. Don't be surprised though, because the char siu is amazingly worth it.

The 'no see sky' or bu jian tian char siu is sinfully delicious with just the right amount of sauce and fat. Your heart may not thank you for it so much, but your tummy and palate will.

Be prepared to line up if you do come down to try it, but try to be here early cause the best char siu will run out of stock. I was here before 1 and was one of the last ones to get the best part.
The noodles are chewy and Q (just my favorite type of texture) and the wantons win the soup wasn't too salty. Yum!tongue
