Grass Jelly with Atapchee! Cry Aug 22, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre


Was there with hungry wifey after attending an exhibition in Marina Bay Sands.

As tempted with the Rochor Bean Curb but decided to try something more cooling - Grass Jelly with Atapchee.

This is the first time I have seen Atapchee in Grass Jelly.

Love only Atapchee though. Reason being the Grass Jelly is not cold at all! The vendor actually went to add ice into the dessert knowing that it is not cold. Can you imagine that? The cold ice will melting and dilute the dessert making the tasty blend.

Hence next time we are going to try only the bean curb, only if its cold.

Quality Japanese Food but pricey Smile Aug 22, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Ramen

Looking for quality japanese buffet?
Shin Yuu is the answer at a expensive price of S$49++

Was there with colleagues for a celebration, we ordered so many till I forgot what we had after the dinner! And if you have more that 10 diners, you can request for a private room!

Picking a few of the many good ones, the Ebi Tempura is one of my top fave.
Fresh prawns being one thing, the layer of deep-fried flour is light and not-so-oily, making the Ebi Tempura appetizing. Comes in a plate of 6.

Chawanmushi is another of my personal fave. Filled with little mushrooms and topped with fish roe, it is soft and tasty. The egg is not too dense making us not sick of it. Thisis very important, especially if you are going for the buffet.

I will return with the next post when I gather more photos. =)

In summary, this place has good quality japanese food even though you do not have much variety.

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

Great place for food and wine Smile Aug 01, 2010

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.

Great Sichuan Food Smile Aug 01, 2010

Categories : Beijing | Roasted Meat


First time there and it was much better than expected.

We ordered

1) Ten Wonder Duck(medium) - S$23.80
2) Chinese Wine Mushroom(small) - S$10.80

The duck is cooked in lot of herbs, creating a strong yet nice herby smell. The duck meat is tender with the skin yet being crispy at the same time. Eating it is very addictive and makes us crave for more.

The Mushroom is another popular dish. Being a personal favourite of chinese wine chicken, this is the first time I have seen it cooked with mushrooms. The chinese wine makes it fragrant and delicious.

However the price is slightly steep as compared to others

I will definitely come back for more.
