Authentic Thai Food in SG Smile Jul 18, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Restaurant


Was recommended by many of my colleagues, I decided to bring my wife and in-laws there for dinner to "score" some points tongue

And in the end, I won the world cup lol

The ambience is good and the service is excellent.

For 5 people, we ordered

Tom Yam Seafood Soup - S$9.90
Crispy Garoupa with Thai Chilli Sauce - S$28.90
Pandan Leaf Chicken(4pcs) - S$12.90

The much-heard-of TOM YAM seafood soup and its heavenly. The soup is fresh, sour and spicy all at one go. Not for the faint-hearted, pls. One sip and you will be knocked out just to get up again and ask for more.
Garoupa is served in thai style with ample toppings. The fish is fresh and so crispy that we actually ate the bones. Wonder if we are suppose to do that.

Not a chicken fan but the big chuck of chicken meat grilled in pandan leaf makes it fragrant on the outside and soft on the inside.

No space for desserts anymore but will definitely come back for them!

Great place for food and wine Smile Aug 01, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Bars/Lounges | Restaurant

Was there after work with good company. Good place to chill out and grab after work drinks and pair it with decadent food. Decor and ambience was modern and chic after the renovation. Having recently revamped their menu, I tried the following dishes:

1) Wagyu Beef Rump - S$36
Presentation was pleasant. The two thick pieces of beef are 75% cooked even though it is pinkish on the inside. It is soft and tender and the juice ooz out after every bite. Definiely one of the best beef steak I have ever had. The mushroom not only makes the dish look beautiful, it also compliments with the meat. You should try this if you are a beef lover.

2) Mini Wagyu n Foie burger - S22
Comes in three mini wagyu beef burgers, the beef is just as good as the beef rump. So good that one mouthful and its all gone in a count of three. The foie's distinct taste gave these bite size burgers a unique edge. Excellent for starters.

3) Smoked Ocean Trout Blinis - S14
The mini cheese pancake with caviar toppings was delicate. Mini-pancake is soft and fresh while the caviar provides a refreshing taste that delights my palate. I like how the chef played with texture.

Service was prompt and pricing is reasonable for the generous servings here. Will be back.

Ma-Po Pork Smile Aug 01, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Kids-Friendly


Tried another branch this time and we ordered

1) Dong Po Pork - S$12.50
2) Ma-Po Tou Fu - S$8.80
3) Stir-Fried Lotus with Macadamia Nuts - S$10.80

The Dong Po pork is sweet and soft. Very addictive and goes well with white rice. Except is a little too small for the two of us.

Ma-Po You Fu is a little too spicy for me but wifey loves it as the tou fu is soft.

I like the Stir-Fried Lotus as it is plain, fresh and light. Good for people who likes light food. The fresh lotus goes well with the celery and macadamia nuts

Dim Sum Smile Nov 14, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Dim Sum | Noodles


Could get up early for dim sum?
Have not fear, Mayim is here.
Do you know Mayim actually serves Cantonese Dim Sum til 5pm everyday.
Who says dim sum is only for breakfast?

Since wifey has been insisting I owe her Lor Mai Kai and Siew Mai (both her fave) for the past 2 weeks, I decided to repay my debts by bringing her to Mayim.
We ordered Siew Mai(of coz) ($2.20), ShangHai Xiao Long Bao($2.20) and my fave Steamed BBQ Chicken Bun($2.20). A pity they do not serve Lor Mai Kai.

The Siew Mai is fresh delicious. First bite and you will be able to taste the solid pork filling. The second bite you will feel satisified and happy. Wifey had many second bites to satisify her needs.

The Xiao Long Bao is nice in general and comparable to the one in Crystal Jade. But the skin is softer and tends to break while we try to scope them out of the basket.

My fave Chicken Bun. Fresh, hot and juicy. I hate those which is hard and dry inside. The buns here are juicy and big. You can taste the tender char siew too.

I will definitey come back again to satisfy wifey needs.

Best Chicken Rice in SG Smile Sep 13, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hainanese | Chicken Rice


If you looking for a good chicken place at affordable price, Boon Tong Kee is the answer.

Not considering having to wait 15 mins for a table, the staffs are able to provide good service, good food recommendations and they know their stuff.

A must-have is the white, silky, steamed chicken.
The is so tender and silk that it slips down my throat. Most importantly, it is fragrant and nice. Goes very well with the fragrant chicken rice bowl

We also ordered the Claypot Toufu. The toufu is soft on the inside and hard on the outside. The sauce is thick and tasty. smile I love it.
