Sushi Bar Smile Sep 10, 2010

This time I decided to try their sushi bar.

With a price range of S$1.99(colored plates) to S$3.99(pink plates) to S$5.99(red plates), I was overwhelmed with their variety.

First, I had the Kani Salad Sushi(S$1.99). Not as fresh and cold as I was expecting but the topping is overwhelming.

Next was Fried Hotate(S$1.99). This is excellent as it was served hot. The layer of fish fillet goes well with the usual mayo topping.

The Lobster Salad Combo(S$3.99) is great! It has salad, lobster strips, lobster roes all wrap with the egg skin. Think it is worth the price.
I will return with more photos and reviews

Had their Black Pepper Beef and Tempura Set(S$16.99) and Teppan Assorted Mushroom(S$7.99) for dinner.

The Black Pepper Beef are sliced into small thin pieces, so small that I though I was having chicken meat. Luckily, the pepper sauce makes the beef outstanding. It is spicy hence not for people who cannot take spice. The Tempura is hugh and fresh. One bite and you can taste the fresh prawns within.

The Teppan Mushroom is so-so only. I think it is too wet for my liking even though the taste is nice. I guess the chef added too much seasonings.

Great Set Meals Smile Sep 05, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Beijing


Imagine S$38 for two pax with 4 dishes.
And all of them comes in generous portions, leaving us thinking that the set meal is good for 3 pax instead.

For S$38, you will get

1) Two bowls of rice
2) Herb duck
3) Baby Kai Lan
4) Mongolian Pork Ribs
5) Lotus Soup

Other than the all time fave Herb Duck, the Mongolian Porks Ribs is also very unique. A little peppery and spicy, the crispy ribs is very appetizing.

The Baby Kai Lan has a very distinct soury taste and goes wwell with the white rice.

The Lotus Soup comes with ribs inside and it is very tasty. You can really feel the nutrients inside the soup. You'll know that the soup has been boiled for long period of time.

However, we ended up paying much more for a small plate of peanuts(S$2) and wet towl(S$0.30) and Chinese Tea(S$1.50). I recommend rejecting the peanuts and just stick to plain water.

Good expensive chips Smile Sep 04, 2010

Categories : Japanese


One of the best chips I have ever tasted!
The Royce Chocolate Potato Chip is filled with high quality chips with a layer of white premium chocolate.

It is a delightful mix of salty and sweet taste !
As the layer of choclate is only on one side, as you bite the chips you will taste the salty side of the chips, followed by the sweet chocolate after-taste. Excellent!

However, it is definitely expensive S$15.

Never Again Cry Sep 04, 2010

One of the worst place to have food here sad

We order three dishes and none are even near the passing mark

First, the Fried Carrot Cake in XO sauce is too dry. It is not carrot cake but rather flour cubes in some kind of chili sauce. Fail

Second, the Claypot rice has too little ingredients and badly cooked. The rice is too wet and the salted fish taste is just too overwhelming.

Third, the bimbimpat is average, much better as compared to the previous two dishes. One good thing about this dish is that it is filling with generous portions.

Never order the yuanyang drink. You will be better off drinking water!
